Hey, all. I've been wanting to get into Pokemon, both the video games and the card game. Any suggestion on what video game to start with and where to get some cheap Pokemon cards?

Fancdew : The best place to get cards would be your local TCS (Trading Card Shop). I know Magic The Gathering has a thing where they show all the stores that are allowed to do sanctioned events, but I'm not sure if Pokemon does. I can ask one of the owners tomorrow for you, when I go into the shop to play some MTG Commnader, since I have to talk to him about some other stuff anyways. 

As for the games, I would say it depends on how much you like Pokemon. If you are like me, and just want to get into it to have something to play, but don't want to play every iteration since there isn't that many differences in each generation, I would just go with the remakes of the old stuff first. Rather than playing Red, Blue, Green, and Gold, you could just play Emerald Green instead. If I'm wrong in my thought process, I am sure somebody else will come in here and give you a better answer than I can.

thing1 : Don't you mean FireRed and LeafGreen? :P (And the 2nd generation remakes HeartGold and SoulSilver)

And honestly I don't have that much to tell you, except maybe do a bit of research on each generation of games and see which one you'd like to play the most, which ones have features you like, Pokemon you like, etc. Sorry I can't give you a solid answer but with questions like these it really depends on the person.

And I have no experience with Pokemon cards, I have like 2.

THOUGH if you don't mind getting into Pokemon with the spinoff games, may I recommend Pokemon Mystery Dungeon? I recommend you play either Red/Blue Rescue Team or Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky

I would start off with either Gold or the Gold remake HeartGold because you basically get two games in one with it. Instead of playing through the original games and then playing these gen games, you get to explore Johto and then do a little adventure in Kanto as well, so it feels much bigger than it should.

Emerald wouldn't be so bad either.
