Hello,FireLizard there,it's been a while.I'm just asking you a quick question:how did you discovered Pokèmon and how old you were when you discovered it?
I discovered it when I was around 6-7 years old,my friends introduced me to the franchise.
My first memory of Pokèmon was that my primary school best friend showed me a Snivy figure she picked from McDonald's,I was kinda confused of what she was doing.But I started loving Pokèmon when I saw my first Pokèmon episode,the one where Ash was fighting Clay(Black and White series)and Ash's Roggenrola evolved.I was so amazed after seeing that episode.
My friend was also a Pokèmon enthusiast,and every time I came into her house we always used to watch the BW episodes or play with the cards.Then I moved into another and I'd never seen her again.Those were such good times.
Despite being grown up with the 5th generation,my first game was X.Such good memories of that game.

What about you guys?How did you discovered Pokèmon?I'm really curious to know it!

My acquaintance with Pokemon began in elementary school, my first McDonald's figurine was Pikachu, which I still have, but tastes change over time and age and now I play more serious games on the site new online casinos in Canada https://casinocanada.com/casinos/new-casinos/ I studied all the nuances games and choosing a high-quality playground with a high percentage of winnings, I raise large amounts of prize money.

Funny enough, I think the main drive for me to get into Pokemon was actually Smash Brawl.
I also had some DS emulator which had both HeartGold and SoulSilver.

The Official Trainer Handbook. I read it sometime in high school like 2009ish. It was a gen 1 book with stats on all 151 pokemon. Then little later on i got a FireRed cartridge from the fleamarket that was actually a ChaosBlack Romhack but i didn't know that. I grew from there and got Sapphire as my first official game then Diamond.

That's very interesting!
I also knew some new series with Smash Bros,like Fire Emblem or Xenoblade Chronicles.
It's thanks to Ultimate that I started loving Corrin and the other FE waifus.

I was in elementary school and all the other kids were playing Pokemon. They probably weren't playing correctly but I wanted to play with them so I got a stack of cards at a flea market or something. Then all of my Pokemon cards got confiscated by a teacher. So instead of giving up like a normal person I started collecting more cards so that I would be able to play with the other kids again.
Cut to a year later when I had amassed enough cards to join in the game and the Pokemon fad had died out. Nobody really cared any more but I decided to keep collecting.

Some bonus information:
  1. I never did get those original cards back from the teacher. I asked her about them a year or so later and she didn't even remember it.
  2. I started attending a Pokemon club and during my first tournament I discovered that half the cards in my deck were fake(be careful when you buy off Ebay).
  3. I used the other kids disinterest to bolster my collection. A few years later, I was really getting into the game and wanted to new cards to I talked to all the kids you used to play and told them to bring their collections back. Then I bought them all. I made out pretty well considering that I was the only one who still knew what they were worth.
