No. My friends, and other random people I've met don't seem to care.

The only time I was really urm... Mocked, was when I decided to wear a pink mini skirt to
school, and hey even I think that was overboard;;;

When I told my friends I was doing a Pokemon site (Eon-Rider (http://www.eon-rider.x-wh.net/)), they laughed at me.

Coolmaster's right, this would be better suited for Pokemon General, since it is about Pokemon. ^^; Remember to place your polls in the right place next time. =)
*moved*
I just hope there hasn't been a topic like this in awhile. ._.; I tried searching for it and didn't find it.

No, acutally. Not many people know, and the people I told didn't seem to mind, if they didn't like it. :P

hmm...when i had a poke'mon silver and kept bringing it in school....i just wanted to play.....the people in my school.....they all kinda suck...i stopped liking pokemon for about two years...then i met another friend (whom i used to like) that also liked pokemon...its kind of my history here before joining PC

I rarely profess my love for Pokemon outside my house, but there was one time I took a holographic Vaporeon card to school. I accidentally dropped it, and a couple of guys made a huge fuss over it (OMG I found a pkmn card OMG >_>). I didn't want to lose my only Vaporeon card so I asked to have it back. They agreed, but I could see some of them smirking/whispering behind my back. Thankfully, my friends don't mind; they make playful jabs at it, but nothing more. ^^;

What the hell? Why did you wear a pink miniskirt to school?

Anyway, you've just got to keep it hidden. I'm not exactly proud of this...well, I wouldn't it my fandom, I'd call it random inklings at times, but you've just got to hide it, nonetheless, else you'll find yourself arguing about it.

My friends don't really seem to care, they learn to accept it. The big problem is only my sister ¬_¬
I can't turn up the TV to watch the show , without arguing with my siter 'bout it.
Pretty irritating ...

my sis is the worst problem i have to record pokemon on mornings and watch it wen she is out. but most of the people at school play them to so i get really good rares like my 3 kyogres that i traded for some shiny pokemon.
yu-gi-oh is a good show i watch that

April 28th, 2006, 12:28 PM
No-one knows I still like pokemon! Actually, I kind of "gave it up" about 2 or 3 years ago, but then I kind of got back into it by showing an interest into Sapphire and Ruby (both which I still don't have! *gasp* but I'm considering buying) I'm not even going to dare trying to say that I like pokemon.

April 28th, 2006, 12:38 PM
NO! NEVER! NOT EVEN MY FRIENDS!
You see, I'm ashamed of liking pokemon even one bit. I hate the cards, I MEAN HATE! I really like the GBA games, though... So I guess I'm not reall PKMN fan.
<.< >.>

This my confessions,fu!

April 28th, 2006, 12:47 PM
Actually? No, I've been lucky. Most people who find out I love pokémon tell me they also like it--either that, or they just don't care one way or the other, or a little confused...but I haven't been made fun of or anything. And I'm 18. :D

Through most of my career, heavily. It never caught on in my town, as the last thing people wanted was a monster RPG. It bloomed late among younger people, however. For that I was ridiculed heavily until grade 10. By then most of my classmates accepted the fact that I was a Pokémon enthusiast, and consequently many rarely want me around.

April 28th, 2006, 01:25 PM
Sometimes, some of them laugh at me. Actually, they used to do it like always. But when they learnt my "puzzled" (xD) personality they don't seem just to try to say a bad word about Pokemon. xD

My friend all know and either like it too or don't care.
My family really could care less. They don't really know what pokemon is, and they really don't care to find out.
I don't talk about pokemon at school very often so the people there don't know really. But it's not that big of a deal anymore since I'm in college and people are pretty much over the whole teasing thing.

My husband makes fun of me. He says I am wasting my time on a kiddy game. I told him he should battle me once and we will see whether or not it's a kiddy game. He just looked mean at me. And he still makes fun of me. (but he loves pac man) Oh well. I really like Pokemon, it's definitely not some easy kiddy game.

April 29th, 2006, 08:33 AM
My friends just don't care, really. Most of them are just like, "ah yeah, I had a Charizard on Red version," or "WTF? There are 386 kinds of pokemon? That's insane!" The only person who's given me a hard time is my sister, and she's pretty much anti-everything remotely nerdy.

Ai
April 29th, 2006, 09:07 AM
my parents would be saying that i'm too old for it, but thats it. my brother and closest friends don't really care, but my other friends would think its riduculous and childish, and for people i just met, i would pretend to dislike pokemon, not hate, but dislike.

Loki
April 29th, 2006, 09:22 AM
Ugh. You would not believe how much trouble I get for my love of Pokemon. They're always like 'Oookay' or, 'You're SO weird!' every single time I bring it up. I like all these "kiddy" shows, and they never let it go! Mainly because all my friends are like, those super popular people who always have to be cool. But, I just don't talk about it around them, which is why my computer is my best friend. It's my way to share my love of Pokemon without losing my social status at school. =_=

Kimicatdemon
April 29th, 2006, 11:01 AM
My friends don't care...they already know I'm werid enough, but when i bring it up, they just stare then change the subject...They are such good people!! ;__; sorry if I stress you guys out about my obsession over every anime I ever watch..

Dude, I’m a 19 year-old freshman in college. If my friends knew I still played Pokemon, my reputation would go down the drain. Most of my friends have played R/B/Y when they were young, so they know Pokemon when they see it. Fortunately, my roommate has never played Pokemon before, so I can draw Pokemon on the computer without him caring. But when someone else comes into the room, I have to stop all Poke-activities.

It's my little secret. ;)

I remember I brang a GameBoy Color, and Pokémon Yellow, took them out and started playing it in front of everybody in class. The reactions I got were: "Hey look! Jeremy is playing Pokémon!" "Say, Pokémon went hard back in the day." "I be playing Pokémon back in the day." Ect. I guess there wasn't any mockery because they must have grew up in the Pokéra, sweeties. =p </lamepun>

Yo if you a dude, why do you talk like a girl? Why do you type in pink, and actin all female like. I hear you're Jeremy, I dont know no female named "Jeremy" and it says you're a female.

I think you're confused and thats that, sorry for the off topic thing. But it bugged me a bit

Dude, if you're not getting a joke, then talk to them personally and don't go off topic at a thread like this.


Anyways, people wouldn't want to bug me since the only thing I like about Pokemon is the manga. Otherwise, yeah.

XD

The same thing with me. I recently started playing the actual games again, and everyone's like "Pokemon, man thats so oldschool." All my friends know it, and basically anyone who ever played secretly still likes it. I don't hide it, but I know some d00dz who still 'mon and try to keep it low. I think it's stupid to hide it - I support my fandom 100% :D

I just find it funny now that some people don't like Pokemon. I'm so used to it.

Heh, I brought my GBA into work cos I was bored, and on a break I whipped it out and started playing.

"Whatcha playing?"

"Pokemon"

"Heh, you coulda lied about it."

I'm not fussed though. I kind of take the same mentality as Akidatheart, have me a battle or two and we'll see if it's a kids game or not.

Mocked? Understatement. Big one.

At my elementary school, we went to war about it. (Mini-war, mind you!) Seriously, I could tell rather interesting stories about the whole ordeal. But I'm going to keep it at the short version so I don't warp your mind or something like that.

-Kid moves in with Pokemon cards
-Shiny cards draw in a small group of 'outsiders'
-Unofficial Pokemon Club is formed.
-Jerkizoids (Yes, that's what we called the mocking people. We were young and silly) declare war against Pokemon Club, deeming us geeks that must be eliminated.
-Pokemon Club > Jerkizoids for five long years. Xp

Pokemon is not actually a childish game like because it requires strategy.

Everyone that I hang out with knows I like Pokemon. They're cool with it, as long as I'm not majorly obsessive over it. They all agree that Pokemon owns Yu-Gi-Oh, and that you're never too old to play Pokemon XD.

I don't really scream that I like Pokemon from the tops of buildings, so it doesn't really get out much that I like it. When someone finds out, I usually get the typical "Blah blah that automatically makes you a loser blah blah I'm a redneck blah blah", but I don't let it bother me much. It's just a game that I like to play - not a representation of my social rank.

Well at my old school my best friend liked it, and all the girls in my class thought it was cute that I liked it. (HELL YEAH!) Most people just laughed and said pikachu in a weird voice but it wasnt exactly a pay out. Now at my new school I dont think i'd reveal that I like it so meh I dont care I guess. Except one friend I had that was 2 years above me. He hated pokemon so I never metioned it around him though he did pay me out occasionally.

I haven't told them about me liking Beyblade yet (eek!) I actually borrowed Pokemon movies 1&2 of off my friend and my other friend found me some Pikachu emoticons for Msn Messenger. ^_^

Some poeple find it funny though, I just give them evil looks ¬_¬
I think it is stupid when people tease me about it because obviously they have nothing better to do than wonder about what I do in my spare time -_-

Wow...and he thinks you're immature for liking pokemon?
No offense to him, but I think acting like that is more immature than liking pokemon. -_-
I think most people who tease other people are immature though. The mature people would leave you alone about it because it's none of their business. ^^

Lol Well, alot of people that know I like it think its cool, but then other times when random people hear me talking about, or playing it they're all "You still like Pokemon?!" And then call me weird, or crazy... they're never real mean though, and eventually they just joke about it. One guy thought it was weird, but he was cool with it.

There was a time where I did get teased a little bit, and this was just after the fad ended. (2002-ish)

It was pretty annoying, but it hasn't bothered me since then.
Pokemon is obviously old enough for people to not make fun of me for liking it, so I guess that's somewhat of an advantage...

Back in Junior and High School, some people made fun of it. But eh... I always ignored them. And even laughed at their references.

And even though I'm still not much open about it, I doubt my peers at Uni care at all about what I like. So... the fun is over. It takes place in Immaturity Central, which is High School...

When i first brought my pokemon crystal game into high school .One of the boys in my form room came up to me and said What are ya playing and i replied pokemon and he said" Yeah pokemon's a classic". Where i live pokemons kinda dead.

:/ Sure, in school they did. Even my friends did at times, though I tried not to let it get to me.

I was (and still am...*cough*) a huge Pokémon nerd in school, but now that I'm older I honestly don't give a rat's *** what people think of it anymore. Heck, I have a plushie Pikachu backpack that I still use sometimes. My purse has at least ten Pokémon keyrings attached to it and my bed is covered in Pokémon plushies. I even wanted to paint Pokémon characters on my bedroom walls at one point, and I'm not ashamed to admit any of it because it was what made me happy. Still does, too, and if it makes me a nerd, then so be it! *salutes*

Yeah I've been mocked countless times, people in my school hate pokemon and it seems like I'm the only one who likes it, which is why i decided to look for pokemon forums to meet and chat to people who liked it as much as i did, i went to pokemon dungeon first but the people there are a load of bull **** when i tried to give tips and advice, they just mocked me, so i decided to have a look at the next forum which is of course pokecommunity and everyone here is great and friendly to talk to

People used to make fun of me, but as I truly don't care, they have stopped. Unfortunately, even though I have lived in this country my entire life minus the year that I was born, every school I go to I am mocked for having an accent from a different country. The WHOLE school does it. And for some odd reason, every one knows my sister and I.
>.>
<.<
O.O
XD

It is really odd, people I have never even SEEN before make fun of us. I am so used to it that I just ignore it, but it never stops me marvelling at the sheer number... You'd think they would have better things to do. XD

None of my friends know either, but at my age, you can't like pokemon without being mocked in some way.

If I find that someone in school or whatever that likes pokemon, I tell them I do and their the only people outside of home that know that I do. No matter how close a friend is, if I know they'll bug me about it I don't tell them. Because of this, I've never been mocked for it. Personally though I don't give a hoot about what other people think anyway, but I'd rather save myself some hassle.

I don't let anybody outside of home know about the crushes I have on many girls from pokemon though. Telling them that would be too risky. Funnily enough though, my mum knows!

No. Everyone who knows I play Pokemon don't care because they have gone through the addiction before.

A friend of mine happened to see me buy pokemon TCG booster packs and she immediately 'snatched' it and showed it to my other friends who were there at the shop before I could pay. It was some form of indirect mocking, and I got pretty pissed.

But ack it, I don't deny my love and passion for pokemon.. I just don't like others mocking pokemon. It makes me a rather angry girl I must say......

I'm sorry to say this, but your girlfriend's kinda childish. Pardon my criticism of her though ><;;

Everybody in my school thinks pokemon is for kids.They think its stupid(i have to hide my old pikachu plushie when a friend comes over) But here we are in a nice safe sanctuary were we can interact with each other and talk about pokemon all we want without being criticized. I really feel at home here.

Everyone I know thinks that pokemon is for little kids, that's cause the anime. The manga ain't kiddie.

I am one of the smartest students in my school (Overall GPA is 101.432) and anybody who knows me knows my passion for Pokémon. Nobody seems to mind except for some idiots.

Funny story about that really...In Physics class my passion is known because I make Mew noises when we did 'myuu' (the coefficient of friction)

Anyway, several months later the teacher is drawing some sphere and one of the cheerleader girls calls it a Voltorb, and looks back at me, impressed with herself. Go figure.

You bet. Then again, I'm a Senior in High School, and anime in general is looked down on either because of the whole "hentai" thing or because people are like "it's a freaking cartoon!"

Thus, I keep it quiet and talk about it with a few close friends and fellow nerds.

(And, PrimeCupEeve, I don't know where you go to school, but GPA doesn't go over 5, ever. And most of the time, it's just 4. Schools with a GPA possibility of 5 are bigger schools with more course offerings.)

The only person that mocks me for being a Pokemon fan is the ONLY person in my school (apart from me) that has Pokemon Emerald and still plays it!

I don't really bring it up to friends. I mean a few probably know I play the games, but that's about it. They probably wouldn't care.
