Default How did you first stumble into the World of Pokemon?

Just as the title says, how did you meet with the non-existant biological beings that are Pokemon?

There's a neighbor in my backyard who showed up one day with some Pokémon Trading Cards. I've been hooked since. This interest in the cards soon turned into a full-fledged obsession with the franchise. I turned to the games (specifically and firstly Crystal Version) and not too long after to the figurines. I currently have a firm fixation on the manga more than the rest of the canon. I haven't the slightest idea how long this will last but I do enjoy it so I hope it's here to stay with me!~

I first got into pokemon when R/B first came out. A lot of the kids in my class had gotten the games, and said they were great, so I decided to get Blue, and Yellow when it came out, and have been hooked ever since. I even have some of the mangas. Pokemon has been a large part of my life, and will be for a long time.

I can't remember, actually... I've been a Pokémon fan as long as I can remember, and that was since I was 2 or 3. D:

Well when I was very young (Around 6) I watched the TV show, bought toys, but never played the game. Then one day when I was maybe 10 or 9, I went to Target and found a demo game. It was Pokémon Firered Version. I got a Charmander named Godzilla, and made it to the Viridian Forest. Then my mom said we had to go and I asked her if we could buy Pokémon Firered, later we did, and that's how I ended up here today...
Heh heh heh...

Christmas, 1998. I was introduced to it then. Almost five months ago was my 10-year anniversary. I didn't make it special, however. I want to. For my 20-year anniversary, I'm going to get a very small tree, and hand Pokémon ornaments on it. =]

Anime (Christmas of 1998; first five VHSs) --> TCG (Within a year of being introduced) --> Old Manga (1999) --> Video Games (Christmas of 2000; Gold) --> New Manga (mid-2008)
