I don't know about you, but Pokmon and me being a teenager, sin't really working. i'm more mature than the year and one day ago I signed up here. I don't really like Pokmon any more. It's not appealing to people in my age [the mature ones]. Does anyone else feel the same?

I'm sixteen and I'm mature enough to not let my age have that big of an impact on things I enjoy so...

You can enjoy Pokemon no matter how mature or old you are. Don't let stereotypes and other people's opinions drive you away from something you like.
And shouldn't this be in Pokemon General?

I was trying not say that all mature people don't like Pokemon, but that's how it sounds. I guess it just depends on who you are. I just don't find anything spontaneous about the show anymore. The just use the same things all the time. Ex: Team Rocket.
I just think it's a kid show. I don't make fun of people who like it though, because other can like enjoy what they like.

There is people that has kids and thay like Pokemon (the ones that has kids).
Im 15 and I still love Pokemon. Pokemon is not just for kids (every one will say that but its not ture). There is teenagers that loves Pokemon.

Well, I still like pokemon, and I have to say I am mature for my age.(Well, maybe not online, but in real life, I'm mature)It's not about how old you are, anyone can like pokemon, wether you are 3 or 30.I have to admit, the show is sorta for kids, but the games are extremely challenging, which is what I like.I guess it just depends on the person.....

you're never to old to love something you like...

did that make sense?

ok, hmm, how bout this

If you put your heart into something, then age doesn't matter...

nah that's too sappy, hmm, how bout this..

If you care for something enough that age doesn't matter then you have reached maturity..

bam that's it

BOO ya!

just a verys simple word of advice...

"age = useless number"

Don't let numbers take over your life... they're just numbers...

Like the old saying goes, "You're never to old for anything." And I take it to heart too, I mean I'm a college student and I still enjoy playing Pokemon cards and watching the cartoon show every so often. Maybe not as often as I use to but I try to keep up.
frostweaver said it best, never let a bunch of numbers decide what you can and cannot do.

it's not all about myage, but how mature I feel at this age. I've just outgrown Pokemon.

The cartoon seems so much more boring than 3years ago!
I used to laugh my head off when I was young.

(Hong Kong was banned from Pokemon for 3years)

Well, the way I see it, when you have gotten older, and you like something no matter how old you are, then that's true maturity

My brother feels he's outgrown Pokmon. Makes me wonder what the heck he's thinking. Oh, well, his problem.

As long as I truly enjoy Pokmon, I'm not going to let my age get in the way. You can still be mature and like a cartoon. Most 14 year old girls are so boy crazy, where they think they have to be perfect in order to be popular. =_= I'm actually just about the opposite of that; I do have a crush, but I'm not obsessed with him or anything. People have their opinions though, and mine is just that it's silly to stop liking something just because you think you're 'too old'.

Finally Someone who feels the same way. Im not trying to be mean but Pokemon and me arent compatible as much. Sure I like the Game...But not anything else.. My friends would disown me if I told them about this... :) Dont hate me please I have my opinions.

In a way I agree with what Dizzy said. I don't really enjoy the show as much, but I like the games most of the time. But I didn't decide on not liking pokemon because of my friends. They have nothing to do with my decisions.

LuCky You Nick, My Friends and I run each other lives which I know isnt healthy... But That has nothing to do with this topic. I just dont like it as much as I did in the Fifth Grade I guess. I'm an Older Person and I like new things. I'm not @ home as much and thats probably why I DoNT LikE the ShoW as MucH... BUt I dont Hate Pokemon Its very Cool in Some ways ( Can you say all the Great Websites, Fanfics, Fanart, Hacks and Other things... Ya Dizzy didnt let your work go un-noticed :) )

Eh, it's probably not the smartest thing to reveal you enjoy when you're in 11th Grade like me...most people only identify with the cartoon, cards and whatnot. I only play the games now, and of course write bad fanfiction when I get really bored.

I guess I can say i feel the same way.I'm fourteen and still like Pokemon,i've liked it since It came out,though the feeling kind of died for two and a half years during GSC to Ru/Sa..I picked up the Sapphire version and loved it all over again.If i had any friends in real life,they'd go 'Eww,that's for babies',but to tell you he truth,it's not.The games are fun..the show's...for kids,really.That's the childish thing.Still..I get up every saturday to watch the Advanced series.Ah well..people do eventually grow out of things..its just human nature.I didn't really truely UNDERSTAND po.kemon until ru/sa though.i had no clue was the sp.atk and sp.def were on the games..I felt silly. xx; Hee..but now I am obsessed with a certain type of Pokemon and the feeling's here to stay for about another year methinks,then it might die down again.

I'm not insulting the show but with all the corny music it has it should have really kept the Japanese Music instead of having Back Street Boys Sing a Theme song for them...

Look at me for an example: I'm fourteen years old and my friend and I have loved Pokemon since we were nine and ten years old! I'll never stop liking Pokemon at all, no matter what others say.

Lol, most of my friends are online. My few offline friends would probably leave if they knew well, maybe not one of them, he'd more likely make fun of me for it. He's already calling me an int
