What got you into Pokemon?

For me it was an ambiguous Lunchables box that had Pokemon on it, most notably Electrode, Raticate and Arbok, and one curiosity led to another
Let me make this crystal clear; Ruby and Sapphire remakes are coming this generation (gen 5). Get the hell over it.

Mom gave me a yellow version, the rest was history

When the card game first came out & other kids were playing it (while nobody knew the rules) in Junior school.

I remember that Pokemon was all the rage at my school, and at the time, I couldn't see the appeal. I was never one to keep up with the latest fads. But it was so popular that one day I just decided to give it a shot, just to see what all the fuss is about. Watched an episode of the anime (might've been Sparks Fly for Magnemite, but I really don't remember) and the rest was history. I was hooked from that moment, and never once lost interest. My next birthday, I got my first three Pokemon games- in the morning, my parents gave me my first Game Boy- a Game Boy Color- and Red Version and Yellow Version. Later on in the day, I got Blue Version from my aunt and uncle.

All I remember is that one of my mom's friends gave her a Yellow Gameboy Color alongside RBY, and that she gave them to me.

I got a VHS about Pokemon for being a subscriber to Nintendo Power. I thought it looked awesome, and I was pumped.

Either my friend had Pokemon Red and Blue and I watched him play one and he let me start a new file on the one he wasn't playing, or I saw the "Chaw men duh" with Damien episode of the anime. I forget which one happened first, but I started watching the anime a lot after that.
