• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

The First Pokemon you Ever Caught+Discussion

Not open for further replies.


almost completed Dex

Caterpie on my brother's Pokemon Red. I was adamant that I'd try and keep my team as close to Ash's anime team as possible.
Was all a waste though, my brother wiped the game to start his own.

Believe it or not, mine was a Chansey. My brother was on his millionth playthrough of Blue and he let me explore the Unknown Dungeon and get Mewtwo for him. (Yes, I know it's really "Cerulean Cave". Shut up.)


Izit cuz I is black?
My first game was Yellow. I bought it the same day they were doing a massive Mew giveaway, so my first two pokemon were Pikachu and Mew. I remember I had to race against the clock to get a Pokedex (which involved going to Viridian City and back) before I reached the front of the queue or else I couldn't receive the data for Mew. Pretty intense stuff. As I recall my first actual capture was a Caterpie, so I could be like Ash.


*Electric Zaps
Mine was a HootHoot in HeartGold. I never used it. The 1st one i caught that i USED was a lvl 8 female Mareep.


Oh, hey, Big Zam!
I think it was a Pidgey.
I think mine was Caterpie, which became a level 30 Butterfree i think.
Spearow, in Blue or Yellow...I had been reading the Versus Books RBY guide and decided that Spearow was the best early Poke to push through the first two-sevenths of the game...I was sorely wrong.


Electricity Trainer
The first Pokemon I ever caught was Pidgey in my first Pokemon Game, Yellow. I also wanted the first six Pokemon to be like the ones Ash started with since I also could get charmander, squertel, and bulbasaur.


Your WORST nightmare
I still remember when I met a shiny pidgey and didn't get my pokeballs yet in heartgold = =
mine was a Sentret on SoulSilver :D

I got a Pidgey the first time. I knew nothing about Pokemon back then, so I had to catch everything I see.


Ours is the Fury
Pidgey, Level three. Back in the days of Pokemon Red.

Had no idea what I was doing. Some friends had to teach me how to battle, throw Pokeballs, etc.

Ahh, nostalgia
