What was your first pokemon experience like?
For me, I believe I was about 6 or 7 when I discovered that my big sister had a game boy color. I found it when i was in her bedroom with her one day: A clear purple GBC along with Bust A Move millennium, Super mario land, Game and watch gallery 2, and of course, Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Yellow. I was absolutely in love with it. I would sneak into her room whenever she was out with friends so that I could play it. She knew that I was doing that, and eventually she gave it to me, saying she didn't play it any more anyways.
My first experience with Pokemon had me hooked. I can't really remember for sure which of the games I played first, but I have a feeling it was probably gold or silver, with their sparkly plastic and shiny labels that appealed to me.
I have fond memories of all 3 games. Stepping out onto route 29 of johto for the first time, with a Chikorita by my side. Trying to get through Viridian forest in Yellow without the trainers noticing me. The excitement I felt when i finally beat the champion in Gold for the first time, with a single level 72 Typhlosion. Those games, especially Gold and Silver, solidified my love of the Pokemon franchise for good.
