93, red version. It's easy to tell who has been here from the start and who hasn't. Likes Charizard? Old player. Dislikes? 12 year old.

'93 player here, never liked Charizard or Blastoise that much, I always liked Venosaur more.
As long as FF XV is around, I don't plan on buying a Square game ever again.

Child of 1992 here, I love this series so much. It's been with me since I moved to America at age five and was my first video game ever.

86 here. I got into Pokemon when it was first known only as Pocket Monsters. Had the Green version and then later moved on to Yellow when the special edition Gameboy Color launched in North America.

1985. Got Pokemon Red, and my stepbrother got Blue. Little sister ended up getting Yellow. I've dabbled in the later games, but they don't seem to have the same simple charm as the originals (except the remakes, of course)

I don't know if you can consider me part of the original fanbase because I started playing yellow when I was 7 back in 1999. Always found Charizard to be overrated. I though both Venasaur and Blastoise both looked cooler than Zard.

The only reason Charizard is the most popular starter is because Ash used a Charizard and Charizard was considered the strongest card in PTCG at the time.

'87. First game was Blue Version. Still works, surprisingly with it's original SRAM battery. Especially since Gold's battery ran dry, and more recently so did the clock battery in Ruby and Sapphire.

I replaced Gold's battery since the battery supports both it's SRAM and clock chip. I suppose it makes sense this would be the first to run dry, as the battery has to support two components.

Ruby and Sapphire weren't of concern, as since they use flash memory for saving, the battery is only for the clock. I can still enjoy the games without the time-based events working. Only thing that bugs me is that the games remind me every time about the battery.

Though, it's been at least a couple months since I played Blue, so it's entirely possible it's battery finally ran dry within that time... maybe I'll check it sometime.
I gave up and did the 3DS transfer anyway...

Here here! I was 10 when Pokemon got super popular in NA so I feel a little old.
