When you FIRST learned about Pokemon? Any source counts.

I genuinely don't remember life before Pokémon.


That makes an odd amount of sense. I was fifteen when Red and Blue came out, so obviously my memory goes before that, and I can easily recall stuff before that. But then I think, "That was before Pokemon!" and I have to stop and process that.

My Mom bought me a gameboy with a bunch of games(to share with my Sister) when I went on a plane to Florida as a kid (might've been my first flight). I ended up playing Ruby because the cartridge was a different color. I gave that one to my Sister and I got Sapphire eventually (no idea when or how - I just remember having it)

Police don't have any suspects at this time, but they're pretty sure that it was you.

My friend told me about it in first grade. He described Squirtle as a turtle with a water gun and Psyduck as a girl that gives people headaches by holding her head and shouting at them.

Wow, I guess that means those were the first two Pokemon I had ever heard of.

Kids on the playground playing it on their old school games boys. The anime came out shortly after. It was still another year before I got my own GBC and Blue version though.

I got the Toys R Us promotional VHS in the mail back at the start of it all, and I just realized that was about 15 years ago. I was 10 years old just the age for a young trainer to start their journey.

I was so excited, and I watched it so many times. I remember playing Pokemon Blue on my Gameboy Pocket, and watching the show when it first aired. I had my parents tape it so I could watch it every day after school.

So many people started either at the first game or at the first season of the anime. Amazing.
