    Thank you for your comment, @Chibi Altaria! I didn't know that you are 28 years old. :o Sorry to hear about your kidney infection and the theft of your Pokemon trading cards. :/ It was very nice of your uncle to buy you a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Blue, though! :)

    I first started playing Pokemon when I was eight years old, so that's almost 20 years ago now! Yeesh. xD I was in the hospital at the time with a kidney infection and my uncle bought me a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Blue as a present. At that time I had no idea what either of them were, but I quickly got into it and I've loved Pokemon ever since! :3

    I think the Pokemon trading cards picked up at my primary school not long after that; I remember collecting hundreds of them but my folder with all my cards got stolen and I cried so much. ;n;

    @Suicune's Fire You could have nicknamed your Cleffa 3.14, haha. Too bad the save files got deleted and you can't find the ROM anymore. :/

    @Cleobel It was hilarious! I remember typhlosion being called Bakuf. And Cleffa was Pii. XD Unfortunately the save files got deleted and I have no idea where that ROM has ended up.

    Thank you very much, @Suicune's Fire! That bootleg copy of Pokemon Silver sounds so funny! xD Do you still have it? :)

    Congratulations, Cleo! :D :D That's so awesome! It's pretty funny that you got so impatient that you played it early. xD

    I first played a Pokemon game in the late nineties, though I'm not sure when exactly. My dad's friend had a daughter who had a gameboy and Pokemon Blue so I used to borrow it and play it, and I was in love with the games instantly. The first game I "owned" was in either 2000 or 2001 when we had a bootleg copy of Pokemon Silver on the PC. xD Which was half gibberish and half English. All the pokemon had their Japanese names but with English characters, but it only fit five characters in. However I knew every pokemon by that stage because I had books and watched the anime anyway haha.

    My first game was actually PMD Blue Rescue Team! My first team was a pikachu with a mudkip partner! I got it for Easter if I remember correctly. I got Diamond for my birthday a year later and started with Piplup!

    Thank you very much for your comments, @N7 and @Neo Emolga! I really like that story about Pikachu in Viridian Forest. :)

    Ah, it was always tricky to decide between Pikachu and Raichu back in Gen 1. Pikachu was always cute and had the anime to put it in the spotlight, but Raichu had the spunk and the power. Whether to use a Thunder Stone or not felt like a harder decision than picking which college I wanted to go to or what car I wanted to buy. But in the end, I went with Raichu, though I had a fondness for both of them.

    What drove me crazy at first was Pikachu's rare spawn rate in Viridian Forest. The map on the Pokedex didn't make it too clear where they appeared and I didn't run into any Pikachus in Viridian Forest the first three times I went through it, so of course I didn't think that's where they appeared. At one point I thought the dude spraying Repel in Pewter City was a side-quest that you had to do, and that to make Pikachu appear in that field, you had to do something to get him to stop. Meanwhile, I really didn't want to have to wait to get all the way to the Power Plant to get one (which was another tricky challenge trying to figure out what to do for that so early in the game).


    Yeah, I actually started when I was 17, which at the time, seemed silly since Pokémon had the perception of solely being a kid's game. Didn't care, but now, playing it while 17 seems totally normal.

    Blastoise will always be cool in my book. Never forget the classics.

    My first Pokemon game was Ruby on my eighth Birthday. April 19 2003. My starter was a treeko because I misclicked and got that instead of torchic. Been playing nearly 16 years...

    @N7 well I may not be super special amazing at the game, but I like getting to play it with friends. Trying to get those golden boxes for the event before it ends too.

    Sometimes we just need to change things up for a little while. I know I have times where I wanna play certain games, then move away, certain anime I’ll watch then stop, places I’ll visit then stop. Interests are a weird thing.

    Ever have a game you wanna share or play with us shout us out! Like Rocket League. I jump on that from time to time still.....only on Steam though. There’s a bunch of other games too. Then the randomness that happens here of course which is near daily!

    There are no ladders in this game, plus, a two dimensional tree is blocking the way.
