    Nintendo DS Lite actually. It was a Cobalt Blue and Black one I got in 2008. Prior to that I had never actually owned a console and relied on other means to do that gaming. Though Diamond was the first game where I not only got all badges but beat the E4. Prior to that I got stuck trying to get my seventh badge in Red. Got one or two gym badges in Gold, lol.

    The earliest game I really completed was TCG for Gameboy really loved that. Soon after I got the DS Lite I also got a GBASP and brought all the games before selling them again. Now I wish to buy them all again.

    Oops! I actually started with the DS Lite, but I picked the DSi by accident.

    I started with a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Silver back in Christmas 2000.

    I was like 4 when the DS came out, so that explains why I first got it. Then I got the DSi from my aunt when my cousin spilled water on my DS and then another cousin broke my DSi a couple years ago, so I didn't get my 3DS XL until it came out. I played all the early games on my oldest cousin's Gameboy when I was like 6.

    My first handheld console was Gameboy Color, though I didn't have it for long when Gameboy Advance became available.

    I started out with the Gameboy Color! My most vivid memory is of dropping it more than once and watching the batteries go rolling away. Eventually, I had to tape the back cover on to make it stay. Not sure if it still works, though.
    I know the internal battery in my Sapphire version is dead (clock based events don't happen anymore), so I'm not sure I'd be able to play my older games, even if I could find my old gameboy...

    Purchased a red Gameboy Advance SP when I was in fifth grade. I guess compared to others of my age, I started late. Before that, I did play on my cousins' and uncle's N64's and GameCube, but I had no idea what I was doing and didn't care what I was doing in the game.

    Finally seeing a Gameboy Color in real life, (someone, in my English class a couple years ago, was playing on one) I didn't realize that it ran on alkaline double A batteries (you can't throw them away since they can be toxic to the environment), so I was happy that the Gameboy Advance SP's battery was rechargable. My household already has battery shortage issues due to playing the Wii.

    Seems I'm in the majority with GBC.

    (I did steal my cousin's original gameboy for a few hours before that, though, because I was so jealous about it)

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    You can replace the battery fairly easily. I've already replaced a battery for silver version once. It erases the save file but can save the game on the new file. I'm not sure if it will erase gen 3 save files.

    Gameboy Advance. I remember my best friend had one and I watched him play it all the time. I begged my parents for one until they finally let me get one. Eventually the d-pad stopped working correctly and I replaced it with a granite Gameboy Advance SP, which I still have but the speaker doesn't work correctly.

    The original Game Boy was my first handheld console.
