    Pew! *Out of the bag*
    On this day, 3 years ago, Pokémon X & Y launched worldwide. The start of the 6th generation or the first gen of 3D model Pokémon on the Nintendo 3DS.


    Do you feel old now?

    No.

    I started with Yellow back around 2000 and once I played that a few times, I promptly dumped Pokemon for Dragon Quest.

    Heck no, I was 11 when I got my 3DS and a copy of PKMNX. That wasn't very long ago.

    3 years is nothing, I was 13 when Pokemon Red and Blue were released here in the UK...

    My original GameBoy Pocket still works and I still have my original Pokemon save games from 16 years ago ready to import my Pokemon in to Sun / Moon!

    Ebay is your friend :), the pocket is a very nice upgrade from the original.

    Yeah, I know. I just found a (well, one more, I already own a few) GBA SP + 2 or 3 games for 10€. Really, if I search the whole name, I only get >60€ listings, but if I just search Game Boy I find so many people who don't really know what they're selling and how much they could sell it for.

    Between insane and insecure
    My first game was Pokemon Blue and I bought it at launch. The battery is long dead, but I still have my game.
    I don't feel old, I feel honored to have been there from the start.

    Define "old" because I've noticed a surprising amount of members around here don't even seem to be in the second half of their teens.

    As were talking about old, was anyone here ever a member of Pokemon Gameboy Zone or Pgamers in the early 2000's?

    Pokemon Gameboy Zone: https://web.archive.org/web/20001206212700/http://pgz.pgamers.com/main.shtml

    Pgamers: https://web.archive.org/web/20010720080512/http://www.pgamers.net/

    The news on those pages will be a trip down memory lane for some.

    Some of my Pokemon save games are older than members here, now that's a strange thought!
