My first handheld was the purple Gameboy Color with Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow versions. I started with Yellow simply because I knew Pikachu right off the bat as I would always make sure that I was able to watch the Pokemon anime every single day!
when i was in 7th grade back in '10, my lil sis who was in 1st grade had a pink ds lite with mario kart to play with the other kids on the bus that had one too. Me i was in 7th grade and had a gameboy advance with pokemon red,blue,yellow,silver,gold,fire red and leaf green. my mom got that for me at a garage sale for $30. it had super mario world 2 yoshis island which is the one i played the most besides yellow. i borrowed my sis's ds n mario kart when i wanted too play MK with everyone else.
