Oh yeah, I read that article a few days ago. I guess Yu-Gi-Oh! didn't pull in the lead as much as we all thought! At the Yu-Gi-Oh! convention I went to on February 7th at the mall, I saw a boy that might've been 7 or 8 and he was at a Yu-Gi-Oh! cart trying to buy something with his Dad and in his hand he had a Pokemon notebook/puzzle that was packaged. Seems to me all Yu-Gi-Oh! fans were Pokemon fans (and still are) prior to when it came along, anyway. ^_^

lol I saw that article too. I always look for facts to prove that pokemon is strong still. It's always great to find so many.

I knew that a long time ago. Many people like pokemon but they hide their admiration for it. Unlike me. *slaps his chest* I'm a proud lover of Pokemon.

*nods* yes there is still many many fans about, I've been one for almost 5 years and even though my intrest has gone up and down in it, it still remained quite strong, I was a bit apprihensive of telling people I watched it when I was younger but now I'll tell anyone and couldn't careless what they thought...
...I'm just REALLY glad I got into it after I left school cos the people there would of given me a heck of a time with it O_o;;

My brother was one of those many people who was a closert pokemon fan... he liked it at first and used to watch it before school and even went to see the 1st movie with me, then I guess he learned all his school mates hated it so he started to hate it....it's sad when someone's mind is turned like that due to peer pressure I guess *shrugs* That's why I've always stuck with what I liked no matter how much everyone else didn't like it *nods* and that's why I've been free to be a fan of the show for this long :D

You're sure right, Evil Togepi. I have a youger cousin that used to be a lover but turned completey away from it. I try to make him like it but he just won't like it. Grrr. I'm going to beat up those kids who make others hate pokemon.

yeah i went through an "i dislike pokmon" phase. but now i'm back into it. everyone that says that they don't like pokmon most likely did at some point. when it 1st came to the US it seemed like everyone liked it. now they say they hate it but deep down they probably still like it even if it's only a little bit.

Oh yes, I saw this article. ^_^ It was so nice to find out such good information. Proves that Pokemon isn't dead after all. And I bet a lot of those people who do watch the show are just liars that tell everybody else that they hate it, but secretely do enjoy it. So, ehehehe.

And my brother can be the same way as yours Evil Togepi, especially when he's around my cousin. He's never hated Pokemon, but his interest keeps going up and down. As for me, I've always been loyal to it, never once denying that I do like it! ^_^

I'm sort of rough to people that hate pokemon. Luckily, one my friends like it. I persuaded him to join PC. I think his username is Blazekin.

sadly none of my friends like pokmon anymore. i don't think anyone in my school likes pokmon anymore. it's really quite sad. i wish there was some one IRL that i could talk to that enjoys it other that my little sister.

I read that article. Showed my mom. she didnt care. showed my sister she said "It's just a bunch of geeks and people who collect games." GER! I never went through those "hate" stages. I liked Pokmon starting in...the end of 2 grade lets see..thats like 5 years? i cant count. oh well. Pokmon aint dead and wont be for a while I think. yep.

I started liking pokemon in 2nd grade for five years also. And I never lost interest in it. Come to think of it, I watched pokemon out of all tv shows. That probaly shows how much I like it.

Dude, most people who once liked Pokemon still play the gameboy game r something. So what? Why care? You are who you are- why lie about it? If I was some fan of like...the Tellitubies or something, (lmao, I'm not though), who gives a crap. It's just gay that anyone is so stupid about it.

heh, i bought pokemon advance TOPPS collectible cards just yesterday. =/ i've always liked pokemon. i dunno why. think about it, what if yugioh never existed? what would be the outcome of pokemon? or would some other anime replace it.

now...just when are they goina bring back pokemon cereal. x) they cud make legendaries marshmellows so i can chew on them. >_> heh

There is only one thing I hate about yugioh. Well, two things actually.

first, yugioh has completely overrrun the pokemon league where I'm at. Most people are playing yuioh at the card shop during league time instead of pokemon.

Second, most of the yugioh players who are their are so mean, they either laugh at the fact you like pokemon, talk about you behind your back, or totally beat you down in a duel and luagh aobut it the whole way.

besides those two annoying facts, I like yugioh, but yeah, pokemon would probably be much better off if yugioh hadn't come along. Too much unfriendly copmetition. That's why my pokemon league organizer often calls it "The evil Game" or "yugi-***. It really annoys him.

The reason people hate pokemon like that is because they think its too kiddy.

I dont care if anyone knows i like it, a friend of mine dislikes pokemon fans, says its a waste of time...but when I let him play on my ruby version- he really got into it, and was really excited on his search to find that **** latios, i just left him to it hoping he would catch something LOL :cheeky:, he never did though. so i guess you're right snowangel3181988. :) People do still like pokemon a bit.
I'm glad to hear about this anyway.

Pokemon itself hasn't died yet, but Nintendo completely KILLED the trading card game...the TCG is dead and there's nothing nintendo will do about it! fools!

But they made Zelda:OOC so they're forgiven :D

BOO ya!

Good to know,Pokemon's still out and about.Though I don't know many people around my neighborhood or so that like Pokemon,I still do.I remember when the first TV series came out-I hurried home from school EVERY day to watch it!I'm kind of embarrassed about it now,but I now watch Pokemon Advance,every single Saturday.Pokemon's still got it going,wonder how long it'll be around. :)

*sigh* The old days were better for me. I used to go home after school and watch it with my friends. Now, none of them like it except one.

I never had a real life friend who liked it, I mean my friends would watch it occasionally but weren't obsessed with it like me *lol* So hence why I spend a lot of my time online, honestly before I came online I thought I was one of the oldest Pokmon fans in the world but I found people a lot older than me that loved the show too :D I started watching it Summer of '99 just after I left school, I was 16 and kept hearing about this cartoon that was so popular in Japan and America so I watched it, wasn't hooked at first but kept watching it cos of the extremly cute monsters and here I am, almost 21 and still loving the show :D
It is a shame when you don't have anyone in real life to share the show with but at least online us Poke-maniacs can get together and chat about Pokmon Stuff! YAY for us! :D :D

when i was in 6th grade and it 1st got big almost everyone liked it. all my friends did. then they banned all pokmon stuff from school. that was evil! we weren't allowed to bring our cards or anything. i think that could've been something that caused people not to like it, at least in my town. now i don't think anyone in my school likes it... just me. the only person that i cantalk to about it is my sister.

I've seen people of all ages like pokemon.

Yeah, you don't have to be a specific age to like something as great as Pokmon.

Pokemaster10000
February 17th, 2004, 11:04 AM
*wonders how long he will continue to like Pokemon*
I'll probaly like Pokemon for a very long time.

February 17th, 2004, 12:08 PM
I'll probably like Pokmon until I die. *wonders how many days that is*

I've seen people of all ages like pokemon.

Yeah as I said I came across loads of people who were miles older than me but when I was like 16 I really did think I was one of the oldest then I came across people 20 to way in their 30s and sometimes beyond who loved the show and that was half of the reason why I began not to care less if other people knew about me being a fan nowadays :D I be a proud Pok-Fan!

And I agree with the fact that you don't have to be a certain age to enjoy things, I've always been against it when someone says that certain shows are just for kids, or certain shows are just for boys/girls... it doesn't matter about stuff like that, the most important thing is you enjoy it :D I watch more cartoons than anything else at all *lol*

I bet I watch more cartoons than you. :P

February 18th, 2004, 03:01 PM
LOL you probably do, I barely get to watch the TV these days, but when i do I usually watch any cartoon show I can find...
...currently I'm just happy downloading various anime shows and watching them ^_^;;
