View Full Version : Ashamed of Pokemon?

Now realize, this topic is for the more mature age-groups here. I have nothing against 10 year olds, but if you're that age, you really have nothing to hide. For the rest of us, it could be a problem, depending on your personal perspective. Which is why I'm asking this question:


(If you're 13 years old+) Have you ever been ashamed of your love for Pokemon?

Before I get a lot of "NOOO!!!! I Would never!11 Pokemon is life!1 It's awesome and there's nothing to be ashamed of1", think about it. Would you pull out your DS and play Pokemon D/P in front of a crowd at your high school? Would you go around wearing a shirt that says "I Love Pokemon"?
Has there ever been a situation in the past where when approached about liking Pokemon by a peer you were a little hesitant to fess up that you liked it?

I feel like it's kind of taboo to be a teenager and still like Pokemon.. If you do, it's kind of an underground thing that only other poketeens know about. If you are older and admit to being a pokefan, you're stereotyped as a "nerd" or a "geek."

In my case, I would gladly wear a T-Shirt that says "IChooseUPikachu!".. as a joke. At home. I have friends, fans of anime, that flaunt their anime shirts around 'till they fade. It's just not my style.

On the other hand, all of my true friends know how young I am at heart and have accepted that I play pokemon games. =) Some even do so themselves. It's easy for me to talk to the people in an anime club about me liking Pokemon (games); chances are, they do to. But I'm also a member of different social groups (let's not start a discussion on how stereotypes and cliques should be broken), and I would definitly not act the same around my more 'Seventeen-magazine' friends.

So it's your turn now. Do you have any personal stories that relate to this subject? Opinions?

I am never ashamed of liking pokemon. I went into school on Thursday and took in my DS with pokemon Ruby in it. Noone was that bothered.

I tell people that i still like pokemon. I'm not bothered if they call me a "geek" or anything like that. It is a game that I enjoy to play so I will play it no matter what other people may think.

I know that some people hide the fact that they like pokemon because they are scared what people might think. But i think that if you like something then you shouldn't be scared by what other people may think.

That's true in some cases, but it's not that I'm "afraid" of what others might think. I wouldn't pull the game out in front of my friends who are not fans of pokemon because .. they're not fans of pokemon. Not saying that just because they don't like it I won't either, but I'd rather do something they like when I'm with them, and do something my anime fan friends like when I'm with them. I'm not afraid of other's opinions. It's about whether or not they'd be interested enough to join me. If we're hanging out we might as well be doing something both of us like, right?

Nyu, depends...I used to be very covert about my liking of pokémon as I really didn't feel like giving the people in upper elementary another thing by which to single me out like the ones in lower did. (long story of personal angst I won't get into) Most of my friends there weren't really into it either, so it never really came up as a topic. Back then, I certainly wouldn't have dreamed of advertising my likes. Nowadays...I'm a bit beyond caring. First off, I'm in the IB line here, which has been acknowledged as the geek line anyway on account of being tougher than the national. Consequently, everyone in my school (Not counting the national siders with whom I have very little contact) would probably be classified as 'nerd' one way or the other, anyway. I've quite openly accessed PC from the computer lab during skips and such and not really given a damn about whether someone saw or not (Mind you, I still try to avoid people peeking over my shoulder because it's just plain unnerving). So yeah. I usually just keep my pokémon intrest in the background, though, as there are so few pokémon fans here these days. The only one IRL whom I can really talk pokémon with (well, on the level that I like) is my little brother, sadly. The rest vaguely associate it with Pikachu and that's about as far as their knowledge reaches. It just doesn't make for very interesting conversation. xP

I do remember the brief time period when pokémon was accepted as a mainstream cool thing, though. I was in sixth grade, I think, but I remember the self-appointed 'cool' kids being into it too, which is always a nice thing to pull out when they now try to look cool by bashing it. xD

So yeah, slowly coming out of the closet. ^-^

I'm a little ashame that i still like pokemon even though that i'm only twelve.

In my class only five of us like pokemon and i'm the only one who is a pokefanatic and the three of them enjoy pokemon games nothing more.Everyone around me is saying that i should quit Pokemon before its too late, I usually ignore them or never mind what they say, but It really bothers me that I'm going to be a teenager and i still like games like Pokemon, but no I don't regret of ever loving Pokemon EVER.

I enjoy games like this, so even though many people tell me to "Grow Up!", "Stop Being so CHILDISH", "Time to quit now!" or even "Time to Change your lifestyle" I will still love Pokemon at the bottom of my heart.Besides if i quit playing Pokemon now i'll never experience what's fun and what's not XD

I play pokemon with my friends. We don't hate the games, just the show. Plus, I'm really muscular and do martial arts so they're not stupid enough to call me a nerd.

Now I feel the need to say this:

I never have been ashamed of liking Pokemon. The only time I have like, really been ashamed of liking Pokemon is being around a group of people who don't like Pokemon or think badly of them and stuff. Then I never really admit what I like and don't like.

Though I'll be honest, even though this is completely out of subject, I've liked Yu-gi-oh before in the past. Now you can't tell me some of you didn't like Yu-gi-oh, with the summoning monsters and the Duel disks and that kind of stuff. I'm pretty sure a minority, if not a majority of us did when we were little.

Pokemon has still made a big hit now. With D/P released, I think the population of Pokemon fans in the world has like, multiplied or something. I have to admit it. I feel in love with the Pokemon anime since like, I first saw it. Now I thought Pokemon are real and stuffz(And I'm not the only one that thinks that) and I pretended to be a trainer and stuff like that. I'm not really ashamed to say that I'm not ashamed that I like Pokemon.

Besides, even as I'm 13/14 now, I'll still keep loving the anime and the games possibly for God knows how long the Pokemon series will last.

So to summarize that in one word or a sentence: No, I'm not ashamed that I like pokemon even at my age.

Not really. I mean as Razer said if you like something then don't care about others negative opinions about it.

I mean people have a good idea that I like pokemon. Either from looking at me playing it on my screen or making comments to others about it walking down the halls. I'm not ashamed at all.

People probally just try and make fun of people who play pokemon either for trying to kudos from their other friends or just some other reason that I have no idea why...

Either way, no i'm not ashamed to play the games or watch the series.

And Hoshiko does make a good comment about Yugioh though. XD;

I tell my friends I'm a Pokemon fan but not a fanatic. Although I'll probably never watch the show again, I'll probably be the first guy in my classes to know when a game is coming out. When I first got Diamond, I was afraid to bring it to my high school but when I saw some of my friends (including the captain of the football team) bringing the game, I started to bring it too. I even play infront of my "girlfriend" (more like friends with benefits) and shes perfectly fine with it. So, all in all, I am a little ashamed of Pokemon.

May 26th, 2007, 12:14 PM
I actually never really cared, most people in my school bring their DS or SP and play pokemon all the time. I was on the football team like until last March, so I've established so much popularity that nobody cares when I bring my SP to school. It's like the new fad at my school. Plus, I go to an all boys catholic school, so its not like there's anything else to do here.

Now on the other hand, if I was to join the anime club, then I would be ridiculed. =(

I actually have been somewhat surprised with my feelings for Pokemon (ashamed isn't exactly the right word to use here). I have loved it since I was a small boy, yet as others grew out of it, I never did. Of course, I play the games without worry, for even those that say things like, "Pokemon sucks!" will still say things like, "Oh, that game rocks my socks." I would probably wear a Pokemon shirt at my high school every once in a good while, for there are plenty of people at my high school who are still into it, but it's all underground. When somebody goes around flashing a shirt like that at the middle school, which is where I am right now, everybody would act like they came out of the closet. Of course, I'd show off any other anime apparel, but when it comes to Pokemon, I get pretty nervous. It all stays under wraps until I'm hanging around in the parking lot or something with my friends.

When it first came out, I wasn't ashamed. Aside from my lunch box (which had A.J. on it, thus making it the coolest lunch box ever), no one knew that I liked it. (I went to a school that required uniforms. D: So I couldn't wear a shirt that showed my love.) But I didn't care because it made me happy.

Around the time that I hit high school, which would be towards the end of the G/S period, I started to hide it a bit. I mean, I was in high school. But then I realised that the people in my high school would mock me no matter what I did, so I decided to forget them and go with it.

Now that I'm "adult" in age only, I really don't care. I'll take out my DS in the middle of class and play Pearl, or wear one of my Pokemon shirts, or wander around with my plushies. I don't care anymore. I'm happy, and that's all that matters to me.

I'm not ashamed of liking Pokemon... most other students at school know that I like Pokemon and accept it. Most of them used to play Pokemon-Crater but now they don't anymore. In class, if I have nothing to do, I take my DS out of my bag and play MD. Nobody is really going to ridicule me for liking Pokemon because they all did, and probably still play it in secret. Nobody from school besides me still watches the show, they're all into other anime that I don't watch. That's the Asians at least, the Aussie guys tend to talk about Pokemon, but only meantioning the origional ones like Pikachu.

Nan and Pop are probably more ashamed that I like Pokemon than I am. XD

I agree. In fact, most of us ought to go around and talk about whatever you want to talk about without feeling ashamed/nervous. I'm gonna start showing my fandom for it again, it's not like you have to accept anybody else's opinion. I thought about this overnight and have come to the conclusion that I like Pokemon and I'm proud of it. Nobody but myself can change that.

I'm not ashamed of my love for pokemon but I do hide it from any of my fellow peers. A deep secret like that floating around in a high school... Well, that certainly isn't good. Everyone would tease me about it. So I just pretend I hate it to be like the rest of those retarded lifeless morons. ^o^

I dunno, I don't exactly publicise likeing pokemon. I've loved it since I first played blue version at my cousins when i was like 6 or 7, 10 years later I still love it just as much. My younger sister won't ever stop giving me a hard time about it. At my high school it's more of a tough guy kinda scene, those that can fight are the most liked.

Gaming is acceptable, only if your a microsft or sony fanboy, Nintendo is generally ridiculed because of what is generally aimed at a younger audience. If I publicised I liked Nintendo games like Zelda and pokemon I'd hear no end to it, stupid i know but that's how it is. High school is hard enough without causing youself extra problems IMO.

So yeah I don't publicise i like pokemon, mkaes life easier for me.

Though I've known people who are ashamed of their Pokémon love, I've never hidden it. I'm proud of my love for Pokémon and if people are immature enough to deride me for it then that's their problem. In particular, I think the games (both video games and TCG) are great, even if the anime doesn't have too much going for it besides cuteness these days. Besides, there's a certain person who plays the games too, so...

When I was in Jr. High when Pokemon first came out I was quite ashamed. There was actually an incident where a trusted friend released the info to my teamates on the football and baseball team, well needless to say that was kinda rough considering even to this day no one in my city really likes Pokemon, and being a small town ppl would find out if someone did, lol. However now I'm 23 and I don't really keep it a secret. I openly play it at work in the factory, and my fiance doesn't care at all. She doesn't understand the concept, but she doesn't care, and doesn't look at it bad. I've just been kinda lucky to not be considered a "dork" or "nerd" or whatever throughout my life. I've always been a jock who is looked at as being a kid at heart. So I guess it all just depends on how you go about handling it. You can't let liking Pokemon define you as a nerd, you have to make it look like its cool to like it, and if people still see you as the same person just a fan of Pokemon people won't really care.

I dont mind if people find out I love Pokemon...I dont broadcast the fact but I dont hide It because I feel like there is nothing to be ashamed of...I tell people that do find out that they can laugh all they want about it....I dont care...That usually shuts them up....and if they make a big deal out of it I'll order some gear from PokemonCenter and wear it as soon as it arrives....

I'm so proud of my love for pokemon that I'm actually considering getting a tatto of a swampert or a mewtwo on my shoulder....

That would be pretty sweet! If I were to ever do that, the only way I would is if it were to be a bada$$ looking one like Mewtwo, Charizard, Darkai, Dialga, or maybe Palkia. I guess something along those lines, I couldn't do one of say Chansey per say, any bar or tavern I went to anymore I'd probably get my butt kicked, lol.

Why would I be ashamed of enjoying a video game?

Nearly all my friends know I own Pokemon Pearl, some of them even ask if they can have a go to see how it;s changed since they last played. Quite a few of my friends brought it themselves.

Really, most people who are like "lol u geek u liek dem pogeymahn" probably still have a soft spot for it in their hearts.

I'm not ashamed of Pokemon at all. When I was younger I was ashamed of Pokemon. Now I realize that I'm a real fan so I have nothing to hide and tell my friends about it. Most of them accept it, but a few also say that I'm stupid and childish and for them it's very funny to run around in the schoolhouse and scream "Hikari loves Pokemon!" and so on. I don't care, cause I'm a fan and I've got no fear of beeing one, that would be cowardly. Of course once I was ashamed, but I defeated it by choosing a "Pikachu-voice" as my ringtone. Now everytime in the underground or on the street it goes suddenly "Pika, Pikachu! Pik, Pikachu...". Sometimes people look at me a little bit strange, but I don't care. And whenever somebody makes fun of you, because you like Pokemon it just says how stupid the person really is. Once at school we'd got to fill in a questionare about ourselves and I gave Pokemon as my favorite TV-serial. After some days the questionares had been hung at the walls of our classroom and a few guys begun to laugh at me because I've written "Pokemon". I 've got no problem with it, because I'm a real fan so it doesn't bother me.

Summed up: I'm not ashamed of Pokemon, because I'm a real fan and I'm sticking by it.

Sorry, what I forgot to say was that I'm 14 (nearly 15)and my mother thinks I'm to old for Pokemon. She says that Pokemon is only for 10 years old kids and not for teenagers, but I don't think so. I mean in Japan for example, there are also 40 years old people who still play the games, watch the movies or even collect Pokemon plushies! It's non-sense that Pokemon is for yong kids. It's not just an anime or jst a game, it's much more than that. My mother will propably never understand that. In last 2 months I've changed much. I felt a close connection to Hikari/Dawn (the new girl from D&P) and now I'm just like her. I dress like her, talk like her behave like her and even cut my hair last week just like her! My mother doesn't know yet that I "am" a Pokemon character, she just says that I've changed a lot. But there's one thing I haven't told anybody yet, neither my friends nor my mum. I thought I would never tell it anybody, but now I see that it just would be crowadly not to tell. I know it doesn't really suit to this forum, but just have to confess it... OK... I watch Pokemon for nearly 5 years I I always thought that Satoshi/Ash is a cool guy, but after some time it has changed. I know this might sound stupid, but I felt something for him. My feelings grew stronger, but I have ignored it. There was a time I even got rid of Pokemon for a certain time, because I got scared somehow. I thought there was something wrong with me, but as soon as I saw an episode of Pokemon again and saw Satoshi I got a very strange feeling in my stomache and I went all red, it was horrible. I didn't know what was going on with me, but soon I realized that I had a crush on him all the time. Now I accept it and I know that I can't change it: I love him! I really love him! It may sound stupid, but it's true. Everytime I see him I still go red on my face and I feel embarrassed, but this feelings so great! Maybe I just got Pokemon-fanatic and it will fade. I'm not sure, but now I feel free and I'm ready to tell it to my friends. I don't know, it's so reliefing...
That was the first step and the most important one for me. Now I can tell that I'm really neither ashamed of Pokemon nor of my love to Satoshi!
I'm so happy I did it and please, if anybody here also loves or likes Ash very much or knows somebody who does, please email me @
[email protected]
Please, It's somehow important to me to talk to someone who understands me befora telling it to my frends at school. Thanks, I will respond certainly! I swear!

I'm not ashamed that I like pokemon. And I'm 16!!!!!! I don't like to be placed in the stereotype group of 'normal' people.
I like anime and I love pokemon, always did, always do...
But unlike many of the posts I read, I am alone in liking pokemon.
There is nobody that likes Pokemon around me, but I don't mind that, I would joyfully get my DS out and play Pokemon Diamond infront of a crowd, if they don't like it it's their problem, not mine......

I see no need to be ashamed of Pokemon.

Unless you would rather not play Pokemon in order to protect your "coolness" level with your testosterone-driven school friends (who probably play Pokemon too), then you'd be missing out on a fun game for the sake of high school acceptance.

Besides, half my school plays D/P anyways, so... >_>;

I suppose since everyone in the senior class knows about it and has prodded me about it before, it's now a non-issue. I have noticed, though, that more and more students are acknowledging it positively. So I'm not quite as ashamed.

June 8th, 2007, 07:49 PM
Would you pull out your DS and play Pokemon D/P in front of a crowd at your high school?
Sure, why not? IMO, your decisions shouldn't be swayed by the bandwagon of "Pokemon is for kids".

Would you go around wearing a shirt that says "I Love Pokemon"?
Now that's something totally different. A bit obsessive and fanboyish, and you shouldn't really need to lean that far. It may catch the eyes of some people in public, but I've seen stuff like that still. Totally fine.


I feel like it's kind of taboo to be a teenager and still like Pokemon.. If you do, it's kind of an underground thing that only other poketeens know about. If you are older and admit to being a pokefan, you're stereotyped as a "nerd" or a "geek."
Hehe, you might be surprised that there are quite a number of people in their 20s still playing without shame. Guilty pleasure? Nah, nothing guilty about it. Ask people from college or university and surely a number of them still plays Pokemon. Just ignore the stereotype that Pokemon (or Nintendo for that matter) is for younger audiences.


It's easy for me to talk to the people in an anime club about me liking Pokemon (games); chances are, they do to. But I'm also a member of different social groups (let's not start a discussion on how stereotypes and cliques should be broken), and I would definitly not act the same around my more 'Seventeen-magazine' friends.
Naturally, it's easier to get around in an atmosphere that other people are familiar with. It's good that you can keep the Pokemon hype to yourself in other social groups, but it doesn't hurt to tell others of your hobbies and interests. If I was ashamed of telling people that I like playing video games, I might've never known the fact that many adults I've talked to ALSO likes playing video games on a regular basis! :D

My ringtone for my cellphone is the 1st season theme song...It doesnt bother me at all....

And You acting like Dawn?...heh...They say Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...Kudos to you. You are a much more confident fan than I. I am merely a fan at heart...the only pokemon related stuff I have is my pokemon DS Game case and my ringtone for my phone...other than that you couldnt tell that I am a fan....unless i managed to get a Pokemon shirt or something.....heh....I would wear it once in a while...XD

However I am still not ashamed of the fact that I love pokemon. I am proud of it.
I dont care if anyone hates me for loving Pokemon...I say, "Let 'em. I dont give a hoot one way or the other. XD"

Yeah, I am. I play the games, but don't watch the anime. There's gotta be a point when you realize that pokemon IS geeky and CAN ruin what people think of you. The last thing I want if for people at school to find out I like pokemon(even though I barely like it).

You can call me whatever you like for saying that pokemon if in fact a geek show, but you have to realize something. IT IS.

I've been known to pull out my DS and start going through the eilite four in pearl- I was playing through the first part of the game in school all day when I got it on my birthday. o.O I really didn't care. Once in a while one of my friends will take a shot at it, but they suck. When you go up against the Bug guy in the elite four with a level 76 Lapras and lose? ...yeah.
