Would you defend it?

I definately would. I'm not embarrassed by things that I like, and a lot of people these days think that Pokemon's gotten 'old' now. I don't think that at all... It's still got a lot of different and new things going on. Anyways, post your honest answer here. I'm just curious to know how many loyal fans we still have left.

To be very, very honest I would just agree with them :disappoin

I would just keep quiet. It's their opinions, who really cares?
(I will definitely NOT defend the Pokemon Anime as I am sick of the "TR" blasting away stuff that it always contains.)

It would depend on who insulted it...if it were someone I knew and whose opinion I valued, I probably wouldn't say anything, or just kind of listen noncommitally. If it was just some loser kid I'd say something to the effect of "hey, the show is crap, sure, but the games are a lot of fun." *shrug*

That's right; imo the games are 100 times better than the anime.
(That's why I decided to make a website to the Pokemon Special manga which follows the storyline of the games.)

All you do is this: *shrug* or go "meh"

Does it really matter? As long as you know what you're doing, just stand firm in your belief and ignore whatever junk those ignorant fools are talking about. However I will talk back and enter a metacognitive discussion with them if they do present an intellectual argument (however I've never seen one yet... most of the time it's "it's gay because... it just is! *insert swear here* you!")

XD...I was actually in a chat room once making pokmon references not realizing that the people in the room were devout pokhaters. after they insulted me and called me gay a couple times, I asked them, "before I go, may I ask you to justify your hatred to pokmon and pokfans like me?" their reply was something like, "They just gay...what else can we say?" In response to that, I said, "by being unable to fully justify your reasoning for disliking pokmon, you have proven how ignorant you really are.", then I was booted out of the room by a chatroom mod XD

anyways..if someone did all this IRL, I really wouldn't care...they most likely wouldn't be talking to me. The people that I talk to the most know me as the pokguru, and would only insult pokmon in good humor...

I will say that I like it. Usually, they'll go "Really?! Why?" and I will be semi-truthful, saying how the anime was dumbed down in the dub and that the games are superior. They'll usually accept this like and move on, but if they continue to act stupid, then... i dunno really

I'm not eembarrased because i already told them i kinda like Pokemon. I don't care i they talk about it's their opinion. I think it's funny sometimes. And plus, i talk about stuff they like too, so we're even.

Normally I'm shy, and wouldn't really say anything if someone insulted something like a show. But with Pokemon, it's a completely different story. Even if my best friend said something mean about Pokmon, (which I know she wouldn't, she likes it too) I'd still say something to her that would defend it. I do even when my mom says something, but usually hers are just jokes to tease me about how much I love it. XD Not many people around here hate it, so you don't get picked on. I wear my Pokmon shirts to town all the time! o.o And plus, I'm homeschooled so I'm not bothered with peer pressure and stuff.

Mez was just kidden! but that would be fun! well my friend Andrew had his GBA SP at school last week and i noticed he had a red cartridge in it and i asked "What game ya got in there?" And he said "Its...um....Breath of Fire!" and then i said "But Breath of Fire aint red? is that..." and then Andrew walked away but it was Ruby and all this year hes said Pokemon was "Gay" just to keep his popularity! :D

HEH, how weird. I hate when people lie about something so unimportant, just to stay popular. Well, a lot that do that aren't popular anyways, so what's the point of keeping a reputation? I have a lot of friends, and I make them easily because I'm never mean to any strangers. And none of them have said anything hateful about me just because I like this Anime. *shrugs* I wouldn't care even if they did.

WoW! I totally agree, While the show is the most horrible thing and is the laughing stock, the game however, is the best thing pokemon is good for, My friends know I play the game, they just dont know i like pokemon, I dont really plan on Telling them..

*makes chicken noises and runs off* (Just kidding.. XP)

Actually, the Anime is my favorite part of all of the Pokmon things. Maybe a lot of people hate it, but I don't. The art quality is some of the best I've seen, it's funny, the character's are given very nice personalities, the music's good, and I like their voices. o_o *prepares for onslaught* Though a lot of people don't care for the English voices, I prefer them. Maybe that's because I've never heard the Japanese version, and don't know even 10 Japanese words. XD And this doesn't mean I don't like the games, I love them almost the same. I guess they're not my favorite because, number one, I'm not the best at them, and two, I like drawing so the Anim art is fun to watch and copy their styles, etc.

I'd just ignore em. : P Who cares? Not liking Pokemon won't kill me..

My friends know I like Pokemon, they don't care. They think Pikachu's cute ^^; We're weird, for some reason..

Just ignore them. If you say something back, they want to say some more things that will hurt you...

Kayleigh

I suppose the first time I would just ignore them, but if they kept going on and on, then I'd say something. And it wouldn't be something like 'Oooooh! Don't say dat about my favorite show!' :tired: I would be serious.

And all of my friends love Pikachu too! ^_^ They think it's adorable.

I wouldn't care if someone attacked Pokemon, it really depends on their approach. I might even agree with them, but most people I talk to aren't stupid enough to bring up such an old subject like "Pokemon Sucks". I'd admit I like Pokemon for all it is, but nothing more. If they keep attacking Pokemon, then they're the ones that are obessessed with Pokemon.

I know that some people at my school think that the anime is babyish. I do not aggree because it is really quite fun. I might say soemthing like

"I have all the games and i love them but the anime does get on my nerves"

trust me kiddies, when you go to college its a different story...**** you could say you love barney and wear barney t-shirts and everyone would be like rock on brotha! lol no joke.

I would defend it, and i already have many times. In 10th grade (im a college freshman now) everyone knew me as the pokemon freak and i didn't care...even a couple of times i would get notes during class asking me questions about it lol One time a kid said this girl in my class looked like a bulbasaur ( LMAO ) and they asked me to verify....and i did lol

Last time someone said "Pikachu Sucks", I flipped over and kicked the guy in the nuts until he fell over. Then I nudged him into a bathroom stall.

I think just about everybody in my grades knows I like it. ^_^;; I keep drawing fanart of it, and pretty much obsess over it. (For I have no life, really.) So if they couldn't possibly tell, they're sad, sad people. :P

No one really says anything about it either. They honestly don't care... I remembered one kid said to me, "You like Pokey-man?!" And I'm like, "Indeed. I like Pokemon." *holds up the Jiggly keychain of justice* *funky music plays* :P
Anyways, I would defend it basicly, but in a civil manner. o.O I don't want any kids yelling to their parents that I hit them 'cause I like Pokemon. That'd be extremely.... sad...

It depends what they're saying about, I would probally defend it, in a ... "nicer" way. n_n But that applys with people that I know. But if it's with people that I don't know, I would keep silent, that's what I hate about myself. ._. I'm too shy. ;_;

If someone insulted Pokmon I'd probably laugh and agree with them. Yeah, I'm very conformed.

Well, if someone insulted pokemon then I wouldn't say anything, somedays I will say "Hey, pokemon is cool, don't you be dissing them!" In a very laid back way, but I wouldn't necessarily start yelling at them.
