When did you start playing Pokemon? I started in 2005, and my first game was LeafGreen.

I've been into Pokemon for years, but I only started playing it last year.

It was 1998-ish I think. I can't remember the specifics, but I do know it was prior to 2000.

2004, when I got Sapphire with a Gameboy Advance for my birthday. Though, like Yourlilemogirl, I was playing the Nintendo 64 spinoffs for a few years before.

Sometime between 1996-1999 (maybe 2000) and my first game was Red Version. I got it for my birthday.

I'm an old-school Pokèmon gamer. My first game was Red (Yellow had only just been released but it was a birthday present and mom and dad couldn't find Yellow, which I really wanted),

'99 or 2000, I think. My first was Red, but I voted the GS era because Gold and Silver were either just about to come out or already were. I really don't remember.

Around 2007. Diamond was my first Pokemon game and I got it a few months after I got my DS.
