Generally speaking, for most people, is it better to try and memorize every paradigm of each kind of pronoun from the very beginning, or do most people get these down after years of reading Latin?

And what has been your personal experience? I mean, has there been one way of getting these pronouns down that helped you more than another way?

I don't think it would be difficult for you to memorize all the tables. There's not too many of them. Some pronouns occur with greater frequency than others, like hic appears much more than iste, so you could prioritize learning other pronouns before others.

What is more important is to get comfortable with how they are used. So for example, instead of seeing eius and have to recall your declension table and think, "genitive, singular, all genders..." you want to be able to know what the function/meaning of that particular form just from the word without recourse to a declension table.
