So, we've all played Pokemon at some point in our lives. And I imagine we all remember the first Pokemon game we played. So which game did you start with? Was it a main series game, or was it one of the many spin-offs? Did you enjoy playing it? Do you still enjoy it today?

So, my first Pokemon game was actually Pokemon Stadium. I got it back when we got a used N64 + some games from one of my sister's friends in, like, 2001 or so. It was alright, though I never really did anything aside from free battle and the kids club mini-games. Haven't touched it in a long time. My first main series game didn't come until Pokemon Ruby in May 2003. I still have a special place in my heart for Ruby, as it introduced me to a world I had long heard of but never got the opportunity to experience for myself until that moment. It was great, and even though I haven't had a playthrough of it in a long time I imagine I'd still love it if I was to pick it up and play it today.

Mine was Pokemon Diamond, and I still adore it to this day. It really introduced me to the entire world of gaming (not that I really play that many games) and I had never loved something as much as I loved that game.

Dragonite, usually
Black. I got into Pokémon right around when most of my IRL peers were getting out of it; fortunately we have the Internet. I got HeartGold about a week later.

Pokemon Pinball for the Game Boy Color was my first game. My first main series game I played was Pokemon Blue version. I haven't played the pinball game in a long time. I'd love to try it again.

Pokémon Heartgold. I didn’t get into the series until I played Black version a year later, but this game was a nice starting point. It had great music, a solid Pokédex, and just the right amount of challenge for the time.

Mine was Blue Rescue Team, which I still have extremely fond memories of to this day. The Cave friend area theme is still the ultimate nostalgia track for me.

My first game was Diamond, and I had a lot of fun with it. It's really dear to me, I'll always love gen 4.

For me, it was the original Pokemon Ranger on the DS. My first main series game was FireRed. :)

The first game I played was Pearl, but I was just borrowing a cousin's copy and never got past Eterna City. The first game I owned (and thus actually completed) was White, which is still one of my favorite games to this day.

I borrowed my brother's gold back when he was playing through his using a Pidgeot as his main (he released his starter). The first game I owned I believe was FireRed with my red gameboy SP.

My first ever Pokemon game was Pokemon Platinum. I vividly remember going up to the K-Mart employee and asking for it, hee hee. When I found out there was entire series of Pokemon games, I freaked out.

If we're going by Game Freak games, it'd be Pokemon Ruby. I still remember the day I excited ordered it off of eBay and waiting for it to arrive. Good times.

If we're going by spin-off titles, then it'd be Pokemon Stadium/Pokemon Stadium 2. There's nothing quite like the minigames in those times....

The first pokemon game I played, I believe, was friend's pokemon Diamond copy with my starter of choice being piplup. If it wasn't that it was their LG copy, but I'm pretty sure it was Diamond. But my first bought and owned pokemon game was pokemon White where I started with snivy.
