When I first started watching the anime offcoarse. And around 2001 I first saw my cousin play Pokemon Crystal in his Gameboy Advance and that's the first time I saw a Pokemon game. We were young especially me, and my mom won't buy me a Gameboy so I used to watch my cousin play. But he never let me touch his game and says I will ruin it. LOL we used to be rivals at that time. Anyways, afterwards In 2003 I got a Gameboy Advance SP and then my first Pokemon game which was Ruby! Man.. I loved those days.
