I remember I was watching the news in my country(not USA). So suddenly after politics they say that there is a new video game in Japan that has everyone going crazy.
They show footage of it and it was Pokemon stadium and Charizard fighting Blastoise.
I remember saying< This is what Japan kids are going crazy for? A turtle with cannons? At least the Fire dragon looks cool>
After a few months I bought Pokemon Red because of that dragon and everyone around me having it and saying that it was an amazing game and I never looked back.

I'm pretty sure I was with my parents at a computer store and on the top of one of the shelves were the guide books for Red and Blue:

and I was like WOAHHHHHHH COOL FIRE DRAGON.

and then the anime came out, and everyone on the playground was playing Pokemon and stuff, and collecting cards, etc.

Back in 1996 my cousin had gotten this new game from Japan, pokemon green. It looked like fun and I just randomly hit buttons to make things happen. A couple years later it came to America as Red and Blue and my parents got me Blue.

And then your dreams were crushed when you found out it wasn't a dragon

Not totally sure because it was so long ago but if I had to guess it was from a commercial for the cartoon and only found out later it was actually a game first

If I remember my Mam bought the the game(Pokémon Red for me and my Sister got Pokémon Blue), no previous hype or sources really I don't even think I asked for it.
