    Default Old Type Trainers

    Hey guys this is a thread for 'older type' (trainers who started playing in the good old GB and GBC days)

    Name what game you started in and how you got into competitive battling.

    EX.-Flash-Sama
    I started in Red and Yellow Even though Crystal was amazing!! (Swear i fought trainer Red at least 1000 times)
    Anyways I got into competitive battling because I want to greatly improve my trainer skills..

    I got a cheap copy of Black, and learnt about EV training, pokemon online and stuff, and soon had some good competetive teams made.

    I started with Red. I don't do a lot of competitive battling, but I became interested in it in 4th gen., a little after Platinum came out.

    I started with Pearl. I got into competitive in Black because I wanted to get good at competitive battling and I'm still learning.

    Many years ago i was a genwunner and hated the idea of tons of pokemon... When the remakes came out (fr/lg) i obviously had to play them... But there was a posgame... With new pokemon that looked cool and stuff, so i tough "i'll give them a chance" and now I love all 647 (i always will have ratatta and patrat).

    I'm not in to competitive yet because my internet connections always s***s ... But i like the idea and i ev train and build competitive teams for the battle frontier and for the subway :]

    I have played it since Red, Blue, and Yellow, although I didn't play it competently until Gold, Silver, and Crystal, and later on during the 3rd Generation; I didn't care about the game mechanics or playing competitively until a while after Diamond and Pearl came out.

    I THINK I started in Gold. It was either that or Yellow, but my cards are more on Gold. Also, I don't do competative battling - I considered it after playing Black but... meh, never got into it.

    I started from the beginning with Red and Blue, but I have never gotten into competitive battling, but I am considering it strongly i just don't have much team building experience.

    I should have gotten started in the R/B/Y days, but for several reasons I didn't get in on Pokemon until Gale of Darkness in Gen III. After that I went back and got LeafGreen and then Emerald.

    But I didn't really get into competitive battling until Gen V. So imagine my joy when I found out that wi-fi tournaments are held in doubles style! So in a way, I was able to return to my roots while trying this new competitive stuff. I consider that something of a compensation for not getting in on Pokemon from the start.

    Though I guess my biggest compensation is that I can upload all the Pokemon I've ever used to my new games and keep them "alive", even my first starter of my first game. Thanks to the the unfortunate break between Gen II and III, a lot of people can't do that.

    Started with Blue back in the ancient days of link cables, Pokemon Stadium, and Psychic Pokemon having no weaknesses (lol Pin Missile as the best Bug move). I lost interest in the series after being underwhelmed by Sapphire and didn't touch the series again until I came across my old copy of Crystal a few months ago.

    The extent of my competitive battling career was having everyone come to my house (in the land of the gamers the kid the with N64 is king), transferring our teams over to Pokemon Stadium, and duking it out with teams of Pokemon who knew 4 attack moves.
