Gen 1: age 6

Gen 2: age 8

Gen 3: age 10(3 days before my birthday)

Gen 4: age 15

Gen 5: age 18

Gen 6: age 21

I was just thinking about this kinda makes me feel old.

I decided to look up the dates for the official start of the Gen in Japan rather than how old I was when the games came out in English (and they apparently dub the start of the Gen as when the first game came out rather than when the first new Pokemon was revealed)

Gen 1 - 6 (turned 7 that year)

Gen 2 - 10

Gen 3 - 13

Gen 4 - 17

Gen 5 - 21

Gen 6 - 24

English release or Japanese release?

Gen I: Wasn't aware of it at the time. Probably 4 or 5?

Gen II: Wasn't aware of it at the time. I'm guessing 8?

Gen III: I think I was 11.

Gen IV: 15.

Gen V: 19.

It's not necessary to tell our age at the start of each generation, we can just tell our age at the start of the first one and you can do the math to determine the rest. I was almost 6 when Red and Green were released in Japan and 8 when Red and Blue were released worldwide. I started playing video games when I was 4 so it's pretty obvious that I was already playing Pokémon at 8 years old.

Gen. I: Four when it came out in the U.S. I never really noticed, as I wasn't into Pokemon at the time.

II: Six. I got Gold and a GBC for Christmas that year and have never looked back.

III: Ten. I got Sapphire and a GBA as an early birthday present.

IV: Thirteen. I remember pre-ordering Pearl. I had a DS Lite at this point, as the top screen of my DS had cracked.

V: Sixteen. Pre-ordered White. At this point I had a DSi.

VI: Nineteen. I'll have had my 3DS for over a year, as I got it at launch.
