Be honest, how many of you weren't alive when gen 1 came out?

Honestly, I'm not trolling or trying to calm anyone out it's just I was born in 90, I'm 23 years old and started playing with Blue version in 95. Sometimes I forget that was nearly 20 years ago and a lot of people playing pokemon or even posting here are easily 13-15 years old.

Are there a lot of early - mid 20 year olds like me still way into pokemon?

I am also a 1990 kid. 23, been playing pokemon since the first games came out. I'm clearly hooked.

20 on the dot, started with blue in 2000. the franchise reached my country around that time, and it was a huge deal.

Born in 1994. I loved the anime, but I didn't start playing the games until 2004. Emerald was my first Pokemon game.

1985 here. I dunno if I'd say "way into" all things Pokemon still, but I usually try to keep up with the main games when they come out. Think the only other thing I'm really looking forward too is that "Pokemon : The Origin" thing about Red and his journey.

Edit : Forgot to mention, I started with the original US release of Red and Blue for Gameboy

I was. I started with the anime and collected the cards but didn't begin the video games until Generation 3, FireRed being my first of the main games.
