I got my Gameboy Color, Pokemon Red, and Pokemon Blue as a birthday present when they first came out.
Back then I was in 2nd grade I think, so I wasn't really that great of a player, but I beat them both regardless. Even though I pretty much beat all of red with a Charizard and all of blue with a Blastoise. All my other pokemon were caught in the wild but never used or leveled up.
Get out of my face or I'll messy-wessy you up! FFXI Rutsahl, Siren server: 75+ blm,whm,rdm,war,mnk,drk,drg,pup,bst,smn,dnc,pld,blu,nin,cor
