25 (26 next month) heard of blue and red abd yellow from friends but being a foster kid I was limited to what I could buy. But for a xmas present (I think) my foster brother and I both got a gameboy color and game. I got gold him silver. Been playing every since.
26 here. Been playing since Red/Blue. I remember the countless hours of trying to get Scyther/Pinsir. My gameboy plugged in to the wall so it wouldnt die.Saving my lawn mowing money for a Gameboy Color and link cable so i could battle my friends at school. The awesomeness of those days.
42 here. Been playing since Pokemon 1 on DS. I only got into it because my ex-girlfriend's son was huge into Pokemon and I wanted to have a similar interest. Ironic thing is he outgrew Pokemon and I'm a pretty hardcore Pokefan now!!
