I was already in high school when Red and Blue released, so needless to say I was not part of the original fanbase. I got into Pokemon during Gen 3, starting with FireRed.
I was in high school when Red and Blue released, and I got Pokémon Blue on release day, and was a huge fan from the start. Why is it "needless to say" ?
Pretty sure you are an exception rather than the rule. The original games were clearly targeted at younger players. Most people in high school didn't care about some tamagochi looking game that was designed for kids. It doesn't matter that that perception is totally wrong, it is still what the perception was at the time (and still is in many circles).
I was also a freshmen year high school when I got my red and in my school everyone was playing it. It was my only pokemon game since and I'm willing to try this gen again to see how much has changed. --- Only two console brands on the market: Nintendo and Xboxstation.
