Almost ten years here! I first heard about it in 1998, which is when my parents introduced my to Pokemon, on Christmas.

So... how long have you liked/loved Pokemon?

Happy Birthday Hakken!

About 8 years. I dont know when I started liking the show, but I got a GBA 8 years ago and then Pokemon Crystal.

My pokemon interest is dieing down now though.

8 years. My older bro (who is now 21 and still loves pokemon) Introduced me 2 it at the age of three.

Very long time. My friend showed me it, and I like it a little when I was young. However, in second grade, I began to like it more.

I don't know, but almost 7/8 years. Like months before GSC came out.

I don't like Pokemon that much anymore, tbh (although, I did like it from when I was 5-12/13, lawl). But, I just stay here because of being addicted to URPG. .-. But once I lose intrest in that I'll most likely pack my stuff and leave. ;]

Probably 6-7 years. G/S/C were out when I started liking it, but my first game was Blue. I actually remember the thingthat got me into Pokemon. We were walking on the sidewalk and I saw something on the street, and it was a run-over Xatu card. I never liked the TCG, but I thought the card was cool and soon I was hooked.

I'm 5-6 years, I remember the old times when I was so much more crazier about Pokemon, lol.

`Bout five or six years here. And I don't think I'll be gettin' out of it any time soon...

Same here buddy ^_^ I can never ever forget Pokemon, no matter what.

Me, I've been loving it for around 11-12 years. It was my older brother who introduced me to it when I was really young. I just loved the Pokemon on it so I was immediately hooked.

I have been into Pokemon since June 1998. So nine years.

I've liked it since 2002. I started liking it when I was in prep. I'm in grade five now and grade six very soon now so it count this year as one anyway.

ever scince yellow came out so about 9 years.

12-06-2007, 08:23 PM
I forget exactly how old I was, but I know I got Pokemon Red about a year after it came out... I mighta been 7?... Which would mean 8-9 years ago.

12-06-2007, 08:39 PM
Since I was six or so, so about 7 years.

I don't think I made myself clear enough in my last post...

I've loved Pokemon long enough to be able to sell one of those unofficial guides (you know, the shiny green books from the RBY generation?) at a book sale, and then laugh hysterically when the five-year old who begs his Mom to buy it goes to show the Gyarados picture to his friend, and their mouths fall open in awe while remarking how Gyarados is the strongest Dragon Pokemon ever. And I've loved Pokemon long enough that, when I mention places like Lavender Town or Goldenrod City, really little kids have no idea what I'm talking about, as the only region they've ever seen is Sinnoh. I've loved Pokemon long enough to still be convinced that the original Charizard is the strongest Pokemon in the TGC, and the original Basic Venusaur is the rarest card ever released in an 11-pack (or was it nine?...) As a matter of fact, it'd probably be worth loads right about now, if mine hadn't gotten all bent up... I've loved Pokemon long enough to be able to explain to the ten-year-old at my church who always plays his DS after Mass the concept of EVing and IV's and all that other fun stuff and be totally amused when he looks at me like I'm crazy. And now, I feel old.

I've liked Pokemon ever since it came to America. I was in 2nd grade and I fell in love with it.

And so the no longer like column gains a vote... The only reason I'm posting now is to see if I can run into any old members... thus this post is actually a clever device designed to trick people into conversation... please trigger it.

I liked Pokemon since about five-six years ago, when I saw the RBY games, and I wanted one of those. Nothing really special.

12-07-2007, 10:57 AM
Probably 10-11 years, with lots of breaks in between.

I'm an on and off fan, and now it seems that I'm losing all interest whatsoever.

So I guess, unfortunately, I have to go with the last answer.


12-07-2007, 12:06 PM
I've liked it since I was 8 years old, and I'm 16 now, so... 8 years.

9-10 Years (1998 To Present)

12-08-2007, 11:47 PM
I started loving it the day it came out in America.

Yeah, me too; Yellow was my first game.

My story?

It was for my birthday. MY aunt gave a a $100 gift card to Toys'r'us [ZOMGHELLZYEAH :O]. so I picked up a GBC and Yellow.
