    Well, I received Pokemon Blue as a gift on Christmas, and I chose this one instead of Pokemon Red is that, too me, Blastoise looked like a boss on the front. It attracted me right away; and so did the colour.

    Thanks.

    Lol I didn't choose. I just got Yellow for Christmas because Santa knew I liked Pokemon :p
    But I do usually choose based on colour.

    Santa just thought I would like Red Version. Turns out he really knew how to make my five-year-old self happy. :)

    Me and my older brother found out about Red and Blue through a magazine. Red is my favourite colour - simples.

    I recognized Groudon from these bookmarks at the school library.

    A few months later, I found Charizard more appealing than Venusaur.

    I was looking at ROMs, and decided Crystal looked the most appealling out of the Gen 1 and 2 games.

    I originally wanted FireRed or Sapphire...but there was only LeafGreen...so...it was straighforward.

    Emerald came as a combo pack with the GBA I purchased. As for why I bought a GBA in the first place, my dad offered to buy me one for my 9th birthday.

    A mix of favorite color and favorite mascot. Blue is my favorite color, and Blastoise looked way better than Charizard, so I went with Blue.
    lol I got bored.

    Technically, my first game was indigo, a crappy online game I played a few months ago. I thought it was good since I never played a real Pokemon game.
    My first real game was SoulSilver. My choice was between that and HeartGold, and the color silver kicks golds ass.
    I don't calculate stat values. I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are. I just play the game normally.

    I didn't decide: the decision was made for me. My aunt knew that I liked Pokemon so she decided to get me a Pokemon game for my birthday. She just happened to choose Red version. I almost traded it away for Blue version, but I decided that I'd give Red version a shot.

    My brother gave me his old copy of Gold Version when he stopped playing. He quit Pokemon and I never stopped after that.
