Born in 1988. I remember when I played red for the first time. The blue version, in french. Back then i didn't understand a single word in English, but french wasn't so much better (I'm Argentinian)

Lol @ "90's kids".... wow, just wow.

It was the people born in the 80's that are the original fanbase. The "90's kids" were literally small children that didn't even grasp the concept entirely when this came out. TC you're 18... you were 4/5 years old in 98..... you can't tell me you understood how to play the games. You may have been able to press A ftw somehow, but you were too young to even grasp basic RPG concepts. Sorry, but that is not at all "original fanbase."

The 90s kids were the kids who made us older kids who loved the games feel ashamed to play pokemon because they made it seem "for little kids" to everyone who didn't play. You were the ones that made it taboo! Many of you youngsters didn't even play the games, you just watched the show and wore the merchandise. The 90s kids were the ones who didn't even know HOW to play pokemon when you challenged them to fight, they were the ones who collected the cards cause they were cute.

I just think it's hilarious how young people feel that "they were there" for allll these things..... but you were actually a kindergartner then. Being alive and having a memory or two does not mean you were there!

In actuality, you 90's kids ruined pokemon for a lot of us.

Born in 1981 in the UK, started with Red and Blue when I found a US import copy at a little shop called Thatz Entertainment. We didn't actually get it in the UK till a year later.

Anyway I stayed playing em with Yellow and then Gold, Silver and Crystal* which I played through Pokemon Stadium on the N64.

For some reason though I found it hard to stick with it once it moved to the GBA and played Ruby I think it was on an emulator...never did get a DS though so that was as far as I went.

*durp!
