I'm pretty sure that we have all played Pokemon. But my question is how did it come to be in your life. Most people had a buddy on the playground who showed them Pokemon. And from that moment you found the true meaning of life.

However there are those few who showed themselves Pokemon. By that I mean you were the one who showed the other playground kids Pokemon, you sort of became the founder of it at your school and showed everyone.

So what I'm asking is, were you introduced to Pokemon or were you the rare individual who brought Pokemon into the life of others?

My brother showed me the show when I was 4. I stopped watching because I wasn't allowed to watch TV during it's timeslot. THen when I got a GBA I got a copy of Silver, and it all came back.

I was never a fan of Pokemon, the series or the card games, any contact I had with pokemon was through other people showing me it.

Pokewho?

Sorry, I never got into it. Once I saw Dragon Ball Z, all other cartoons never lived up and still dont.

At my school I was THE person to go to with questions about Pokémon. It bit me in the arse eventually when it lost coolness. Bought both red and blue on it's day of release.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

I was shown it by my best friend at primary. He always told me about his favourite Pokemon, Zubat, which as it turns out he pronouced wrong - he called it "Zuhb-Aht"
#20
My friend introduced me to it when he showed me his Pokémon cards. I clearly remember one of them being a Ghastly. From that moment on I knew that my destiny was to be a Pokémon trainer.
#21
I never played it.

I collected pokemon cards briefly, didn't really understand them though.. I remember trading my best card for a Diglet at one point.. Some dick bought my collection off me for £50 though because I apparently had some "Rare" cards
#23
My older brother showed me a recorded episode he had- Holy Matrimony.
Yes, I do remember the first episode I ever watched.
#24
Don't know. Probably discovered it with friends. Got red and blue and then when i went to secondary school, i just didn't care about pokemon anymore.
It's gonna be a blue day
#25
Well, I went to my cousins house out of state for christmas, and he showed me pokemon. But then I came home and showed everybody the next big thing.

Not gonna lie, I have recently brought Pokemon back to my school. It's amazing.
all I ever wanted was to pick apart the day
put the pieces back together my way
#32
My friend told me about it right when Red and Blue came out. He had Red, so I bought Blue. I'm pretty sure we were the first kids to have it at my elementary school. I remember playing it for a few months before it started getting really popular.
#34
yeah i remember i saw a commercial for Pokemon and my dad said "cool pokemon will be on tv" so I thought it was a show from when he was a kid. Turns out he just read some article about it's success in japan. anyway once I saw that commercial I watched it then thats when my whole world was changed. I watched it eveyday, I even skipped the daily community tag with all the other kids to watch it.

Then I was in a store with my mom and dad and when I went to the toy section I stopped and gazed at the Pokemon cards. I was just like o shit how can u makes pkmn even more cool.

About a month later I was shopping for a mother's day gift with my dad when I saw the Pokemon gba games. I almost died with excitment. I even bought blue version and I didnt even have a game boy at the time. But I still have that same blue version 11 years later. lol

How in God's name am I expected to remember this?

Christ, I dunno'. I thought God created the universe in this order 'Light > Pokemon > everything else'.

I was in the hospital for strep throat, and the only working channel on the tv had pokemon on. It was the one when he first caught Caterpie.

Well, let's add it up:

God created man in his image.
Most people on earth are asian.
Everyone knows all asian people are indistinguishable.
