How old were you when you got R/B/Y?

I was about 5 or 6 when i got my red


Well, I didn't get Red right away, I got my first Pokemon game (Silver) when I was 11, I got Red a few months later.

Since we got pokemon a bit later than most of you guys and since my mom basicly consider videogames evil, I didn't get Blue until I was 10 or so. Probably just as well anyway, since I don't think I would've gotten as much out of it if I'd still been in kindergarten.

I don't remember too well, though it was early primary school. Of course, it was a long time ago so I'm a little fuzzy.
I never actually got R/B/Y for myself
i always borrowed my cousins and he got his when he was about 7, so i wouldhave been about 8 when i first started playing it

I didn't get Pokemon games until I was about 12, and then my parents gave in and bought me Gold, which had just come out at the time. I didn't get RBY until about a year later when I was 13.


Follow my lead!
I got Blue the first year it came out. I think I was probably 4 or something like that... I'm 14 now so whatever year Blue came out minus this year


I must've been 9 when I first got Pokémon Red. Ahh, a life changing event ^^.


I was about 3 or 4 when my brother got Blue, (he was about 7) then my dad soon bought Red for me :)
