I started to like pokemon when I was four, but I can't exactly remember how I started to like it and why. I think the pokemon evolving and battling got me into it, and I think I watched it on TV, back when Ash had just started on his adventure. Before that though, I hated pokemon. I thought it was just another one of those anime things like yu gi oh. And back then, I hated anime. And now, I still don't like it much anyway. I hated the pokemon anime after it came up to the Johto part. Ever since then, I haven't really watched the TV show of pokemon. But I adore the games and trading cards and nothing will ever change that. But I really don't like the anime, and one of the main reasons is because it is starting to get boring. It is just the same thing over and over, collect badges, battle, get pokemon, blah, blah, blah. That's another reason why I get bored of the games sometimes too, since it mainly just the same thing on there too, get badges, pokemon, etc. But I still like the games better than the anime. The movies are okay in my opinion though.

I liked it from the start. My big bro had every old Pokémon card, including Ancient Mew and Charizard, and I liked them a lot. After I stole one, I had to give it back, but my brother said there's games and anime.

I used to play Red and Blue as a young kid, and Gold and Silver.
Then, like most, i got bored and moved on.
But a year or two ago, I was bored one week. So i found my FireRed and my friend and I started to play.
The release of Diamond and Pearl was very soon, and when that came out, Pokemon stopped being something to do and became an obsession.

Well, my bigger brother LOVED it when it came out-he bought the cards, bought all the video games, bought the strategy guide, etc. Of course, all of his friends loved it too. They would go to the library and battle cards, go to each others houses and battle Pokemon, geez....they were just one huge group of pokemon freaks...

With all this exposure, I eventually go into it as well. I liked it, even though at that time I couldn't read what the cards said. x3

Oh, and before you ask, he's not so much of a Pokemon freak anymore...though he does play Diamond...

My friend showed me his Red when I was like six, and then I've liked it ever since.

My mother actually got me hooked on it when I was about three or four. Starting with the cards & anime. I eventually collected thousands of rare cards..I even had a Holographic (Y'know those cards that are kinda shiny) Charizard, but my mom sold it on Ebay TT_TT. Then when I was about eight I got my first GBA, along with Pokemon Ruby. Then it was ALL over xD. I've so far been up-to-date with all the Pokemon games & i'm trying to figure out the science behind EVs, IVs, Movesets etc. (Hard though!) xP I also want to get an old GB color & old Pokemon games just for fun ^^.

Well here it goes.

One day a LONG time ago, I lost my Game Boy Color.
So then I got a new one. And you would know, Crystal version came with it. So I decided to play it, and LOVED it. Also, a bit before this, this guy I knew always bought the cards and showed them off to me. -_-

But yes, I was a HORRIBLE player when I first played.
You know, the "Getting your starter 60 levels higher than anyone else on your team and not caring" deal? Like that.

I also watched the anime a few times back when it was still on the Jhoto series, but then I stopped completely at Hoenn because it became the nightmare I never wanted Pokemon to experience. -shrugs- So I'm mostly a game person, though I try seeing each movie at least once. (Though the last one was complete trash, in my opinion.)

...OMG! WHAT DO YOU DO???
