1989, loved the first generation games. The best in the series in my opinion.

Born *cough*1974*cough*. Shhh!
I bought and played Blue when it was released in the US, and I've had every core game since, with the exception of Black 2.

FYI, I never liked Charizard (or Blastoise or Venusaur) either, but I tend to like or dislike them based on looks rather than competitive usefulness. Kind of hard to get into playing and trading with kids at school when you were already in the workforce when the game came out. Back then, you didn't need this "Wi-Fi" stuff to visit the dream world; you just needed a good free no-tech nap.

Started with red.

Back then, I had to play the games with a dragon on the front... at least he looked like a dragon.

'83 here.
Turning 30 in a few weeks.

Started with Blue, and have been a fan ever since,
Also, I really dislike Charizard.
It's a disproportionate generic fat fire lizard that looks dopey as heck. It's belly is like 75% of the entire thing, coupled with tiny arms, fat legs, and thin wings... ugh, I just hate the way it looks.
