Two years ago... when I was ten...
"I see you have no soul. Want mine? It's black and gooey" -The Frozen Man
14 years ago, when I was in third grade. Got a promotional vhs from Nintendo about a month or two before Red and Blue came out in the States.
Second grade. My friend told me of Pokemon and I loved it. Then I watched the show and played the games. Pokenerd forever.
Uh, mid-teens when I first played Red (borrowed a copy). I didn't really get into it for a few years.
I was around seven or eight when I first got into Pokemon.
