My Pokemon Memories
-Fire Red was my first video game.
-I bought Diamond from my friend, but I didn't know how to delete the game so I hooked up my DS to the charger and played it for days, getting to the fourth badge until I figured out how to delete it.
-I played Platinum on Derby Day so long my parents took it away for a week.
-I sucesfully clocked 200+ hours on Heart Gold Making it the game I've played the longest.
-I got Red and Yellow version at a flea market completely unopened, and have kept Red unopened and sealed to this day.
-I taught both my sisters to play Pokemon.
-Before my sister lost my DS me and her both played one copy of black version.
-I found a shiny Absol on Emerald and took a picture of it before I failed to catch it.
-I recived a copy of Silver version and the trading card game from a friend.
-Platinum was the first game I ever completed and Emerald was the second.
-I got my DS stolen and with it custom Pokemon decal/cover.
-I completed my Pokedex on Heart Gold.
-I caught my first legendary Pokemon on Diamond.
-I traded over all my valuable Pokemon to my friend to give back to me later after Restarting my Heart Gold game. But never got them back.
-I own Red, Yellow, Silver, Fire Red, Leaf Green, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, Black, Trading Card Game, Red Rescue Team, and Ranger.

Interesting thread. I haven't been into Pokemon recently anymore but I have quite a lot of memories which I'd like to outline in my very own schematic below.

-Pokemon Blue Version was my first handheld game.
-I completed the game to story completion but not Pokedex.
-My Pokemon activity took a lull but was booted up with a purchase of Emerald Version.
-I subsequently dived into the Generation I remakes.
-Once again, I conquered Generation I.
-Bought the Gen IV games.
-Explored new features such as the Underground.
-Played Pokemon online for the first time.
-Bought the Generation II remakes; I could experience the Johto region for the first time.
-Bought the Generation V games.

To this day I have not completed a Pokedex. It's possibly one of my greatest regrets being a Pokemon trainer and hopefully will accomplish this end in the near future. Hopefully Back 2 and White 2 will reinstate my love for the franchise.

I also have bought every single spin-off in the series, but I didn't want to make this list longer than what it is now. When I found this thread, I felt very emotional to discuss about the influence that Pokémon has been in my life. This thread deserves to have more posts of everyone's memories that they had with the video game franchise that is very special to millions of people. Pokémon fan for life!

My first game was Fire Red when the DS first came out and I got both as Christmas presents. (Cause it could play GBA games)
My first Pokemon was Charmander.
Caught a shiny Magicarp and Poliwhirl.
I have played that game for 690 hours. :D
My second game was Diamond. (Birthday present)
I picked Chimchar.
Caught a shiny Zubat (Now Crobat) and chained a shiny Cubone.
Played 770 hours.
Completed the Pokedex on Diamond.
I bought Soul Silver a few months after it was released.
I picked Cyndaquil but trained all three starters via traded eggs from my sister.
I played 300 hours on Soul Silver.
I pre-ordered Pokemon White and picked Tepig.
I have played 300 hours.
I have more than 50 level 100 Pokemon most of which are EV trained.

Right now I'm playing through my sister's copy of Emerald which I have 60 hours on and I am up to the Pokemon League.
I picked Torchic.
Fire starters FTW :D
