A lot of kids I know like Pokemon, in a nostalgic sort of way. I doubt they still play it, but I do remember my class once singing the Pokemon theme song in 20-part harmony. Of course, they're probably in the minority compared with the rest of the school.

And I do have a small group of friends that still play Pokemon. In fact, one of my friends actually convinced me to come back to Pokemon after I had given it up during the R/S days.

Lol, I'm trying to convince my friend to do wi-fi battles, but he said no after hearing the price of the wi-fi connector. He actually attempted to EV train in-game so his team will be better than most n00bs.

My friend IV breeds. He has more than three full boxes of Togepis. I usually release the bastard children. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v634/Gamerman/yelwacko.gif

I saw some kid with a pokemon shirt today, and I know one who is totally in to the trading card game and everything. And.. some girl at my lunch table does. The other kids say they don't like it anymore, and she's like "OMG I LOVE POKEMON!" XD That's all I know of. I think a lot of people hide it, like myself.

I don't know many other college students who still like Pokemon. There was this one girl in my Japanese class who was really into it, but she was the overbearing annoying ultra-fangirl type who was only taking Japanese so she could brag to all her other fangirl friends that she knew what they were saying in her Naruto fansubs. The type of person who's in their mid 20's but still acts like they're 14.

A couple of my friends from that class though would talk about the first gen. games every once in awhile, except they were reminiscing, not genuinely still interested in it. We reminisced about a lot of cool stuff we liked as kids, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and other cool things from the 90's.

Very, very, very, VERY few people actually like Pokemon in my school. Around 6-7/1200 people there likes Pokemon. Pokemon isn't popular in Portuguese teenagers...

But the people I know that knows I like Pokemon doesn't make fun of me.

Other than me, there are 4 others that I know of; 3 people on the 8th grade who are all my friends (two of them suck though. =P) and a girl on the 9th grade who used to be in the same class with me when I was on the 5th grade. (I was in a class with 5th and 6th graders mixed) I also believe there are 2 completely random people I don't know at all who play Pokémon because last year I heard someone tell another person he'd trade his Kyogre to him. I have no idea who they were, though.

I'd have to say 2-3. They like it, their just too scared to admit it. To them, it seems rather childish to play a game that involves enslaving creatures, shoving them into tiny capsules, feeding them on only tiny pieces of candy or a random muffin and forcing them to do battle with their own kind.

I wouldn't say that Yu-Gi-Oh is babyish. Have you seen the Blue Eyes White Dragon? He looks freakin' hardcore. I would say that Yu-Gi-Oh is crappier, however.

October 7th, 2007, 10:21 AM
Let me see. There is me and there are 3 of my other friends who have D/P and actually play competitively. Then there are two other people who like Pokemon and have the GBA games and they want D/P, but they don't have a DS yet. Plus there are couple others who have D/P or like Pokemon but secretly.

Also for some reason the making fun of people who like Pokemon went out of style in my school. Heck, almost everyone I talk with know I love Pokemon, but they don't seem to care.

Well, I suppose people aren't randomly going to ask "Hey, do you like Pokemon?" or people aren't randomly going to say "Hey everyone! I like Pokemon!" I think people would be too embarrassed. If someone asked me, I'd say that I like it. But I don't think anyone would ever randomly ask

Everyone knows I'm a fan and it's become like, the key component of people's first impressions of me.
I know this is big in Australia, not so sure about US/UK, etc. but in Year 12 we all get a jersey with some nickname on it. About 10 people have told me "you should get 'Pikachu'!"
It's pretty cute ;) I think I might

But apart from me only a few uber nerds play, and they're really lame about it too. They only play with legends. No actual fans of the entire franchise, though

A lot of kids I know like Pokemon, in a nostalgic sort of way. I doubt they still play it, but I do remember my class once singing the Pokemon theme song in 20-part harmony. Of course, they're probably in the minority compared with the rest of the school.

And I do have a small group of friends that still play Pokemon. In fact, one of my friends actually convinced me to come back to Pokemon after I had given it up during the R/S days.

i gave up during diamond, i now realize that every game after pokemon mystery dungeon sucks, sorry to say. i dont like how they switched diamond and pearl to a 3D game. argh.

oh and im the only fan in my school who still plays. i'm a freshman in high school xD my friends still discuss pokemon whenever i bring it up, but they aren't fans anymore. they just like to mock how bad it has gotten (Even though everything before PMD rocked, most of them dropped out after the GS series.)

Well only me and one friend of mine still likes it in my school (in a fan way), However the girls in general likes the cute pokémon, while the guys just say that they used to watch it when they were young.
And there´s just on boy that I saw once playing Fire Red, I think these are the ones that still likes pokemon.

However, I have to say that I can´t stand what they are doing with pokémon, stupid anime, rushed and stupid last-generation-like games, they´re killing the franchise.

Nowadays I prefer to play digimon or any other monster-like rpg game, they´re getting better with every generation, while pokémon is getting worse with each generation...

At last for me diversity worked fine.

yeah i agree, the franchise is being brutally stabbed to death >:o diamond sucks IMO, compared to the other games. I think GSC was the best, it had twice the game. RSE was cool too, but damn. i hate the whole graphic update in DP

But I'm definitely open about it :) I can be seen often leaning against walls and on benches in my alone free periods playing Diamond or Blue Rescue Team :)

I don´t think the graphic update was a mistake, but if they had to update it why not change the graphics to full 3D instead?
The DS is actually more powerfull than a Nintendo 64, and the DS cartridges can hold more data too, so they could have made a 3D RPG with stadium 2 battle graphics AND full 3D enviroment without difficulty.

But most of us got used to the cartoonish style of the past games, so I think there is no problem in it being cartoonish, but they could have used more sprites for the pokemon battlers so it would still be 2D but with much better animations. Imagine your favorite pokemon changing to a fighting position before attacking, or changing to pain looking position when it is hit or when it´s poisoned?

its mostly the map graphics update i dont like. i wouldn't mind if the battles were 3d, because ive played collosseum and such, but id still like the map exploration etc to be sprites. pokemon was my favorite franchise that remained 2d, and now its gone 3d. argh
