March 19th, 1990.

I started to get into Pokemon at around 1998. I watched the Anime, played the games, collected the cards & toys, the whole nine yards. Of course my friends were into it, as well. At around 2004 (which was around the time I started High School) I decided to stop collecting cards and figures, for whatever reason. I still kept my old collections, just didn't do anything with them. I kept playing the games and watching the Anime, though. Couldn't extinguish my Pokemon fandom *that* easily!

Recently I got back into the trading card game, by collecting a "Black and White Trainer Kit" that contained 2 decks, the playing mat, ya know everything you need for playing the game. I've never really been into playing the game, I'm just in it for collecting the cards. I also grabbed 4 Black/White Booster packs from Walgreens (the buy 1, get one free sale) and got quite a few good ones there, too. I have about 60-ish Black/White cards, and in a few days I'm sending off a few Japanese cards I'm trading with a friend for a few cards I need.

I was born in 1988 and remember the first time I noticed Pokemon, which was the first episode ever of Pokemon. I then went on to play Red, Blue, and Yellow (Yellow is my favourite :p).

I collected the original Pokemon cards and when the frenzy ended I stopped. I have owned and played every full Pokemon game ever since (only the main games). I love Pokemon and will always until I am old enough to have Slowbro's amnesia XD

I was born in September, 1991. I got into pokemon around when Blue version came out for Gameboy. I like the games and movies the most.

2000. What, surprising that I'm 11. Anyways, I became a Pokemon fan in 2006. Again, don't mind me and say that I'm 15. ;P

Well I'm 21, so I would have been about eight when Pokemon first became popular in my country. I kind of lost interest in the anime when I was about eleven and the games when I was fifteen, but really got back into both about a year and a half ago.

According to the poll, most people are 17-20 =P I'm within that range!

Take that, whoever laughed at me for watching Pokemon!

I voted a long time ago, but I don't believe I ever posted here so: I'm 20, I was born in 1991. I've loved Pokemon almost ever since it came out in the US. So maybe 1998 or 1999.
