How did you find out about pokemon and where did you start? Did you start by watching the TV show? Or collecting the cards? Or something else?

It started when I watched the show with my cousins and they gave me some of their extra cards... pretty soon I was enjoying the games as well (I gave up on the show after Johto, and pretty much gave up on the cards as well.)

My best friend in second/third grade had Pokemon Yellow, and he let me play once for a few minutes and I was hooked. For Christmas - which was only a few weeks later - I got a Gameboy and Pokemon Red, and I played it all day.

When I lived in Canada (from ages 0-3) I had a lot of cousins, and when I left to live in the U.S., My cousin Thanassee (I think it's Portuguese for Thomas) gave me a bunch of GB/GBC/GBA games when I left as a parting gift when I left for America, but he also gave me a BIG book filled with Pokemon cards, and that inspired me to collect more and get more games, so my cousins did.

Oh, and he has graduated already. from High School or College, Idk.

I'd have to say the games. I was playing someone's copy of Pokémon Red one day & the rest is history.

I first heard about Pokemon back in '96 from a gaming magazine, before it was a known thing anywhere outside Japan.
Here was a new RPG that you battled solely with pet monsters, which was a bit of a rarity.
I found the concept new and interesting (which it's a pity it isn't like that anymore, pretty much same old thing now. but I digress) so I researched the franchise further and found it to be a game worth getting.
It was another 2 years before the show and Red / Blue were released but when they were I knew what this strange new thing was and promptly got my very own copy of Red.
