How did your Pokemon Adventure start?

#1Solidshooter24Posted 2/2/2013 8:39:18 PM
I was taking a number 2 and I was playing Pokemon and i thought to myself, "I remember when I was 8 and getting my game boy."
Then I was like "I wonder how people got started playing pokemon?"
Anyone mind sharing their stories with me? I'll go first!

It was a warm morning in California, it was my birthday. My brother woke me up saying he got a new Pokemon game and was mocking me! "I got blue version and you didn't!" Started crying and that's when he was like,"It's for you douche." Then i started crying even harder because I didn't have a Gameboy and he left running. He came back and was like here you need this! He handed me a purple see through gameboy color.
That's how my adventure got started. Ever since I've been a fan.

TL;DR I got a gameboy and blue version for my birthday.

My dad came back from America and handed a game boy with red version when I was five. I spent the whole day trying to get out of the house.

My parents bought me a gameboy so I would shut the hell up and stop breaking crap.

Little did they know that their choice of parenting style would forever change my life.

I saw this commercial and begged my parents for it. Got both Red and Blue for my birthday. When I see it now, it's a horrible commercial, but hey, I was 8.

I know, right? I completely forgot about the whole ... crushing thing. I think this was the first American Pokemon commercial.
