Hey there it’s Kelly, earlier Britney introduced our first flashback Friday post and here is mine for the day!
My post is about as you can tell pokemon! I just really wanted to talk about being a kid and remembering my first experiences with the show and everything else that came along after. The first time I ever watched the show it was an early Saturday morning my brother and I were in front of the television watching what every 90’s kid did. Saturday morning cartoons. While eating cereal we were flipping around the channels when we happened across the very first episode. We were instantly hooked and thinking to ourselves this is so awesome what is this? When can I watch more!? We went to school virtually no one knew what we were talking about but when the fandom that was pokemon hit the scene it just took over. Kids were trading cards in the bathrooms and out on the playground during recess. My favorite card I ever had I had gotten a single pack of cards at walmart and inside was a holographic dark dragonite card I thought I had found the holy grail of cards lol. Then the movies started to come out.
You’re liar if you say you didn’t cry lol. Pokemon just holds a special place in my heart and makes me feel like a carefree little kid and in this grown up hard world it’s nice to feel that way sometimes. I always hoped a boy would come along and steal my bike and end up taking me on an adventure. I’m sure a lot of 90’s girls felt that way. We would like to know what was your first experience like and what your favorite games and merchandise were just comment below 🙂 -Kelly
