What was your very first Pokémon game?

    My first was Yellow, back when it was released, but I didn't finish it as I couldn't beat Giovanni.

    But then I played Gold and Crystal like crazy. I skipped Ruby & Sapphire as I didn't have a GBA, but then played Emerald when my brother got one. I skipped Diamond and Pearl again as I wasn't into Pokemon too much anymore, but then I played each game that came out after that. But even though I liked Platinum, HGSS, BW and BW2, XY was the game that made me REALLY get into Pokemon and now I'm obsessed. :D

    To be fair, I did get into the games - and Pokemon as a whole - pretty late, around 2000. That was when the initial craze that started in the 90s was cooling down, and Gold/Silver were coming out.

    First Pokémon game was Red, Blue and Yellow. I remember saving up money to buy both copies and the wild goose chase to hunt down a copy of Yellow when it first released. I was able to find an early copy of it in a computer store inside the mall. It’s really been a big part of my life and love that the series still bring people together.

    Blue. I got it for Christmas of ‘99 when I was ten (appropriately enough).

    So you could’ve been a real Pokemon trainer. :D

    HG/SS are also my favourites too.

    Silver version back in 2001 I think. I got it for my birthday but only played it a little bit because the gameplay was confusing. I began playing it seriously at the end of 2002 and liked it more.

    I got Yellow and Silver around the same time, so they were both my first Pokémon games. I played Silver more though.

    I'll admit I got into the games pretty late, Black and White were my first games, but I went back and bought old copies of Heart Gold and Soul Silver afterwards.

    I actually did that as well, but B/W weren’t my first games. But they were the first games I played after a long hiatus from Pokemon.

    Pokémon Blue .

    My original intentions were to go and buy Pokémon Red due to the box art been Charizard, at the time Red was the popular choice and my local small games store only had copies of Blue left . Kinda glad too as it turned out once back at school after the holidays everybody had gotten Red .
