Pokemon Fire Red. But from there, I went on to play Platinum, and every Pokemon game on the ds/3ds after that

My first game ever was Pokémon Crystal. It's still a good game.

Pokemon FireRed. I played that, and picked Squirtle because my brother had Charmander. I pulled a Blue.

My first Pokemon game at all was Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team. Loved it and I still do!

My first main series game though was Pearl.

Pokémon Gold.. or Silver. I can’t really remember which one. It was after I begged my friend to let me play with his game boy in exchange of letting him playing in my computer with some other game of building a theme park. Then my dad naught me my first game boy color and I started to play Pokémon for the first time. I even remember my first team:
Cyntaquil
Pidgey
Bellsprout

can be whatever
The first game I played, huh? It was Leaf Green in a GBA emulator. That one game was sitting there in the computer and I didn’t even know that it was Pokemon at the first glance because the ROM file’s name was “Leaf Green English.gba”. That's all.

Emerald! I was still young and thought a Premier Ball was amazing due to it's description. I used my Master Ball on a Trapinch and solo'd the game with Swampert (Muddy) and Flygon (Goggles!).

Diamond. It was a used copy and since I didn’t know how to reset the game, I spent a few weeks slumming it in the postgame island. I remember distinctly I had an arond level 33 Lumineon and I kept getting destroyed by the level 50+ Fearows outside the town I was in. Eventually I learned how to reset the game, and the rest was history.

Pokemon Blue when I was a kid. Charmander will always have a special place in my heart because of the original games.

When I was like 7 I borrowed my friends copy of Pokémon Black and really liked it, and the first Pokémon game I ever owned was White 2. Still among one of the best games ever in my book

Pokemon Ruby in like 2007-2008. I was like 5 or 6. It was my sister's copy and she was deep into the game and I just remember being so confused.

My first own game was Platinum in 09. I loved it so much, and that's what started my love for Pokemon.

Pokémon Diamond, Yee yee!

Got it for Christmas the year it was released (probs end of 2006 or 2007). God it was so fun. Back then I didn’t even have Wi-Fi so I could only trade with my brother who got the other version, Pearl. So it made trades more personal and more worthwhile. Unfortunately he fell off of Pokémon around 2010. He had got Heartgold but didn’t really touch it which is unfortunate.

Pokemon FireRed, back in the summer of 2004. I remember seven-year-old me training my Charmander all the way up until it evolved into Charmeleon on Route 1. Those were the days.

My first was LeafGreen, and I did the classic little kid thing of using only my starter (Squirtle line) and a Pikachu before realizing that I was screwed for the third gym. I lost interest at that point because I didn’t feel like training anything else. I finally finished a Pokémon game with Pearl a few years later. Then I went back to LeafGreen on a new save and got bored as I was training up for the Elite Four. Never challenged them. Kanto really wasn’t for me, I guess.

My first Pokémon game, and for that matter my first videogame ever, was Pokémon Gold. I remember spending HOURS and HOURS on my Game Boy Color, training my Typhlosion-led team, defeating the Gym leaders, and the surprise when I discovered that there were not only 8 but 16 in-game gyms! It felt SOOOO good when I got to Red in the end and defeated him. Such good memories <3

Pokemon Yellow and Gold. I received both for Christmas one year.
