Turty the Turtwig (original, huh.) in Diamond. Now a Level 100 Torterra and I still have him - he's my pride and joy First Pokémon I caught with a Poké Ball was Starro the Starly, now a Staraptor high up in the 80s I think. Yes I'm a late fan
Bulbasaur in pokemon blue. I must have only been about 8 or so. I remember, I had no idea what to do so I leveled him to a level 40 Venasaur before I even got to veridian city!! haha that took me so long.
Although when I realized I could travel for some reason I reset my game and chose a squirtle instead.
I was a little late to jump on the Poke'mon bandwagon when it first came out, so my first ever Poke'mon was a Cyndaquil in Silver. Called him Cyn (original, I know XP). Currently level 100 and my lead Poke'mon when I decide to play my retro Poke'mon Stadium 2. X3
My first was a piplup in Diamond. Funny thing is, I was an adult gamer by the time Diamond came out but had never played pokemon before. I'd dismissed it as "kiddie" stuff over all these years but finally decided to give it a try on the advice of a friend. I've liked it ever since.
Mine was a Cyndaquil (Named Fireball o_o) in Crystal, I think I was 8 or something.
This was my first video game ever, as it came with my game boy advance.
I didn't know ANYTHING about pokemon. It took me half an hour to get out of my house. :\
And I thought that when you pressed a pokeball, that pokemon was the pokemon you HAD to get, so I didn't even see the other two choices. xP
First pokemon I caught was a Rattata.
But now that game died, and it doesn't save anymore. RIP lvl 86 Fireball. ;__;
My first game (back in 2000... I think...) was Pokémon Yellow, so Pikachu is/was obviously my first Pokémon. Same as the user above me (edit: I mean GalacticMagmortar), I wasn't able to beat Brock very easily. Luckily, an army of Pidgeys and their "gust" attack helped. xD
