    The first game I played was Red. My brother and I split use of the game. We got a green gameboy and red version. We ended up getting a second a gameboy and blue, this was the first pokemon game I actually owned.

    Was it kind of like that Vietnamese Crystal game which is infamously unreadable and almost unplayable?

    Luckily now you can get the original R/B/Y and G/S/C on the Virtual Console, so you can relive that nostalgia again without having to worry about dying batteries. ;)

    Eh not really. Even though we had gotten the Sapphire from an East Asian country (can’t remember where exactly), it played pretty much the same as an English copy without any mistranslations that I remember. The main issue was that it couldn’t save anymore, so basically just like having an old GSC cartridge’s save automatically erased.

    Thank goodness for that! I got Yellow and Crystal for Virtual Console since I wanted to play through some single third versions, and I didn’t want to repeat getting Blue and Silver.

    Yeah...? I lived in Japan for a while. A ton of my pokemon games are in Japanese.

    I miss the coloured Gameboy and GBA cartridges. They could’ve made the OR/AS cartridges red and blue like the originals.

    Yeah I wish they would have continued the different coloured carts into the DS and 3DS eras

    And the Switch cartridges too, since Gen 8 will be the first on the Switch.

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    Huh... could've sworn I've answered this question for the third time... weird. Anyways, my first ever Pokemon game is Pokemon Stadium. Don't know about you guys but man did the graphics aged well during the Gamecube era, given updates for Colosseum and the 3D models being used for Smash Bros. Melee's Pokefloats.

    Started out with Leafgreen back in the day, then went onto Platinum. Played every game since bar Let’s Go. Not really a fan of the CP system but I do like the spotlight it’s cast back on Pokémon

    Ruby was my first Pokemon game got as an Xmas present with a GBA SP in 2003(which was also my first handheld) But the first Pokemon game I played through to the end was Pokemon Crystal(Also my favourite and the most I spent on hours on)which I got in early 2004 preowned from GAME. I was well into Pokemon before getting Ruby just watched the Anime and collected the cards.

    I also got a GBA SP for Christmas 2003, but I didn’t get Ruby until my birthday the following February.

    Pretty much everyone started with Red and Blue, yes? I started a little later with Gold and Silver, but I went back to Yellow for a bit.

    My very first pokemon game was FireRed. My older sister gave me the cart for my birthday when I was younger, and I remember enjoying myself. I lost the cartridge for a while, but I uncovered it while cleaning out some old things of mine. When I loaded up the save file, I found that I hadn't gotten very far into the game (only up to one of the first encounters with Team Rocket, I believe), but I had an overleveled Blastoise and not much else aha.
