Any really old veterans of the game here? (base set 1999 onwards)

I was merely 12 when I started this game, and now 12 years later I'm 24 and its re-released in digital form, it brings back great nostalgia to me and I was wondering if there's any other similar old schoolers out there? Feel free to reminense here about your past decks and battles! I'll dig up my old classic decks when I get home later and post them maybe (:

You are looking at one. *Holds out hand* 28 years old my friend. : 3

 

 

 

My deck was Kangaskhan,Charizard and Blastoise and I've never stopped being a video game fan.

I wasn't 100% serious about the game back then, had tons of friends that were though and yeah 22 here. I'm hoping they rerelease the older cards and a game mode to play them I'd sooooo play that mode.

it would be awesome if we could play that format! I mean I'm pretty sure they have base set programmed in seeing as you could fight CPU players with base set charizard decks

 

 

 

back when 4 energy would net you about 50-60 damage.. and it was a good amount lol.

I'm 26 now, and I played the game when it originally came out! Rocked an awesome grass deck with two Venusaurs, a couple Scythers, Pinsirs and Venomoths. Ah, good times. ^^

25 and I played when It first came out also. I wasnt really into the TGC battles but I was a collector and played the original video games. I was hooked with Special Pikachu Edition. Getting all of the starters in the game was a must mini-quest everytime I played. Back when Princess Diana died and Wrestling was the only two other things on peoples minds. When rugrats and Ren&Stimpy were my favorite shows haha. Man those were some good times.

I am glad I'm not the only one in their twenties on this site!! xD I still remember the day I bought my green (jungle i think) deck, got a shiny Kangaskhan too. I was more so a collector than a player.

 

though this site has re-ignited my collecting spirit, purchased a few shinies off ebay for my real life collection and realised Unbreon is now my fav :D alongside Flareon (bought a Night deck last week too)

but yeh, I was surprised they didn't have the original fire,water,grass decks!! definitely need those, alot of the original pokemon are missing :[ all these new-new BW pokemon are odd, I only know 151+Silver/Gold

I'm not old but I've been playing Pokemon for nine years (soon to be ten), so I count myself as a veteran (:

 

 

 

 

I've been playing almost as long, if not as long. I don't remember when I started playing, but I have memories of playing either Ruby or Sapphire, so I think I've been playing for seven or eight years.

22 here :) I think I was 12 when I started, but may have been younger (possibly 10 or 11). I mostly enjoyed just collecting in general, but did participate in one league with a deck. I kind of wish I could find it as I'd love to recreate it on here (or well, get close it it :P). I think I stopped playing (the TCG game--I still play all the Pokemon games) either when the Gym Leader or Team Rocket sets came out. I mostly just stuck to collecting promo cards or ones I really liked after that
