History with Pokémon

The earliest memory that I have in relation to the Pokémon franchise is of me watching a few episodes of the Original series with my older sister in the year 2000. She, like most 90's children, was a huge fan of the Pokémon anime back then, despite not owning any of the Pokémon games, and some of it rubbed off on me. I could recall the names of several of the original characters and Pokémon species, though my three-year-old mind did have its limits. As my sister grew out of watching the show, I eventually forgot about it, and what little interest I had in the franchise disappeared. I was aware of its existence while growing up, but I never particularly cared for it.

Seven years later, Diamond and Pearl were released. My mother randomly chose to purchase the former for my twin brother as a birthday present, and he really enjoyed playing it. Not wanting to be left out, I asked my mother for a copy of Pokémon Pearl, and I received the game a few months later. I chose Piplup as my starter Pokémon, and loved the game to bits. Me and my brother's interest in Pokémon—and Nintendo games in general—then began to grow, and we went on to own Pokémon Ranger, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, Pokémon Battle Revolution, XD, Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, HeartGold and SoulSilver, Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, and Black and White.

My brother didn't particularly enjoy Black and White, and he soon began to lose interest in the series. I, however, decided to see what I'd missed and play some of the older games in the series, starting from Generation I. I even brought myself a Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance in order to do so. I managed to persuade my brother to do the same, and since then, we've obtained Black 2 and White 2, X and Y, Red, Blue, and Yellow, Gold, Silver, and Crystal, Ruby and Sapphire and FireRed and LeafGreen. I've also got my hands on Alpha Sapphire and Shuffle.
