When I first saw Togepi, I was like "They're making up pokemon to fill up room now?" I did not know of the plans for a second gen then, and I had not seen the first ep, either. Togepi was definitely the first one I saw. Then, once I found out about it, I must've thought it was cool. My memory is largely blank on it.

I thought Ho-oh was a Fearow when I saw in it Ep. 1, srsly. A special Fearow, but a Fearow nonetheless.
The first three 2nd gens I saw were "Special Fearow", Marril, and Togepi.
I thought Marril was a mutated Pikachu, infused with a Water Stone or something. I called it Pikablu as well.
Togepi... well, I saw it in the anime shortly after. So didn't really have much to say about that.

I didn't care necessarily about what they looked like, I was just way too excited.
I saw the cards of the gen 2 starters at a comic store. I was all impressed about them. Someone in my class thought that bakufun was the evolution of charizard.

I was suprised I guess well it was like 7 years ago.
I was excited, as I thought that 150 was a lot back then (if you'd have told me there'd be just under 500 pokemon in about 7 years, I would've roffled...) and the prospect of more to catch was cool.

I thought they looked odd.
Pretty much every Gen has done that as first, but then they grow on me quickly.
I believe Sugimori mentioned that in an interview.
I read about Pokemon Gold&Silver was getting released in japan and saw a picture of Hooh and Chicorita long before Marill showed up in the anime ( the anime wasn´t even on air here when I read about the GS games), so I was thinking:
"Oh, new games, new Pokemon. I´d better get the first games and see if the hype around it is valid."
The first few pokemon I´ve ever seen were in a game magazine in an article about how the new, kiddy francise "pocket monsters" is about to safe the GameBoy from dying in japan.
I got excited, I think the first place I saw them was in the pre-release of the Card binder. I thought that was before the games came out in Japan (I think...). My favorites were the starters and Scissor, that I can remember... I liked them all though. I also loved Lugia and Ho-oh when they were first revealed.
Hmm... the first time I saw Togepi, I was a little shocked to see it was still in the shell. As for Elekid, I loved it the most at the time. I liked Slowking, belloseum, and ladyba too, but those are the only other new pokemon I can remember.
Well, as far as I was concerned, they'd already been saying '150 or more to see', and there'd been Ho-oh, etc, but all I really worried about were the first 151, and getting the cards. When the 2nd gen got to the cards, they had alot of the sort of sloppily drawn ones, and I sorta ignored them, though I played the games.
