I got into Pokémon with the TV show, it is started airing where I live in 1998. I watched it daily :) Some months after, a former neighbor gained a Game Boy Color and a Pokémon Blue cartridge and I
stoleborrowed them for a time. I... I got hooked >_< Really, I played the game ten or more times and I only returned the GBC because my mother obligated me. xD I was what, 8/9 years old at the time.
