Just curious to know when everyone first started.

I started with Pokemon Yellow in 1999. I still have memories of not knowing what in the world i had to do or where to go *gets flashbacks of trying to figure out silph co. as an 8 year old*. From then on, i had and played every entry up to ORAS. Sun and moon killed the series for me moving forward. I just stick to the older games now.

Very beginning

Blue was the first game I actually beat by myself

And I haven't missed a core game since (not counting the alternative to starting version I got (red,pearl,etc,)) let's go were the first main games I skipped

OG Pokemon Blue.

...I didn't beat it on my own for a long time. I shamelessly cheated infinite rare candy a schoolbus friend showed me how to do.

First pokemon game i beat legit all by myself was silver. My eevee hated me all game. Didnt evolve until just before red battle lmao. Red beat my ass too, several times, but i eventually won.

Since the beginning. Pokemon yellow was the first game I ever played in my llife and is what not only got me into being a pokemon fan for life, but also into games in general and if it wasn't for that I'd probably wouldn't like gaming as a hobby like I do now.

So I'm grateful for that.
