I was born in 86' and though I indeed like some gens more than others, I don't dislike any of them.

I started playing Pokemon Red when I was in Grade 8 (Though it could have been Grade 7).
Like sure, Gen 1 was awesome, but I've also felt the same about all sequential gens.

Even then, my favourite gens are so far are 2 and 4. Partially speaking, this is because I love the regions. A chunk of my favourite Pokemon come from those two gens as well:

'Come fight beside me,' I said to myself, and although it doesn't make sense, I held my own hand as a small sign of trust, and together I made my defense.

Born in '92 and my first game was Pokemon Blue in 1999. I actually got a Gameboy Color for Pokemon Pinball, but they were sold out at the time, so I got Blue for the time being and the rest was history.

I could go on about how awesome it was to be a kid in the 90's, but I'll just say that Pokemon made up a huge part of my childhood (along with the N64, PS1, Cartoon Network, dial-up internet, Toy Story, DBZ, etc)

1992 and Yellow is my favorite version. I was even there for the pilot episode of Pokemon. My cousins were hyped about it for some reason. After watching it, I got hooked into the Pokemon craze.

I actually like Tidus. FFVII is an excellent game. I don't rank FF's except XIII which is last.

90's kids are not the "Original Fanbase". 80's kids are the Original Fanbase and some kids born in the early 90's might be a part of it(90,91). TC born in 94, lol, that means you were 4(if that) when Pokemon Red/Blue came out. You might not have even been out of diapers depending on what month you were born.

If anything you might be part of the Gold/Silver Fanbase(6 by them), but you can't claim to be part of the original fanbase just because Red/Blue was the first game you played. Does someone born in 2012 count as part of the original fanbase if they played Red/Blue first?
