Default How were you introduced to pokemon?

I made this thread at the old forum, so I figured I'd bring it back. Basically, I was introduced through the TCG.

I remember I used to go to my friend's house for sleepovers, and there I would always play one of them's Blue versions. I'd always do the same thing, train a squirtle up to lvl 16 until it evolved, catch some random pokemon, and take on Brock. Obviously, I never saved since it was his game. Eventually I got my own Blue, and around that time the TCG was starting to get pretty popular. Yep, that's how it all started =P

Talking Re: How were you introduced to pokemon?

For me, my little brother Daniel made me play Pokemon blue and on that day he also made me watch an episode of pokemon, and since then I've liked Pokemon.

My brother had that Nintendo Power tape and then he got red and blue. The tape was sort of weird but interesting at the same time. So I decided to watch the TV show and I liked it. He let me play around on his blue version (I was allowed to train his pokemon) and I kept taking his Mewtwo out of the PC cause I thought it looked cool and I didn't think the poor thing should be locked away in there but he thought it was ugly so he'd just put it back in when I was done and so we got into a weird sort of fight about that. But since then Mewtwo's been my favorite. Then my parents bought me a gameboy color and so he gave me his blue after it restarted for some reason since I didn't have any games for it. Later I bought my own red and blue and gave him his back.

My brother used to collect the cards and I was always hanging around him, seeing what he was doing. So I saw him messing with his cards and that's how I was introduced to the big anime hit, Pokemon!

When I was about 9 or 10, when Pokemon first hit America, EVERYONE at my school had Pokemon Blue/Red, I was like the only one in the school without it. But my friend would always let me play his gameboy at lunch until my parents finally bot me a gbc and evfer since then I've had an interest in Pokemon.

I was young when the animé came out and so I liked it. the tcg hit my school. I don't spend money on fads but i really liked this one. I asked everyone for a weak card (an energy or a machop) and when i had about 10, I'd trade them for 1 good card. then I'd ask for more cards and traded for better ones. the mother of a friend of mine bought me a pack o' cards too (had a snorlax in it ) And that's how I got a whole collection o'cards. later on, I got me a GBA and I saw the silver game. I thought to myself "the anime was fun, so were the cards, so..why not the game? and i went and bought it. mainly for reminiscense. When R/S came out, I immediately went to the store to buy it. Still having fun with it
