Well I was young then, so it was like "Oh, who's this?"
"Red? Wait, like Blue?"
*Obliterated since my Pokemon were in the 60s at most*
Snorlax destroyed my entire team. Graveler beat his Pikachu, my Espeon with Bite beat his Espeon in a long drawn out battle, and then I had NOTHING to stop that god damned Snorlax back then. It swept me
I don't really remember, but I'm pretty sure I was expecting a legendary Pokemon, when I only found a person I expected to be given some badass item, but what do i get for all my trouble? a Pokemon battle.
Then I realized I was fighting myself from the first gen. That just blew me away. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
Then that damn Snorlax came out and my excitement quickly turned to rage >.<
