What is the dumbest insult you've received for liking Pokémon?

and please DO NOT flame in this topic.

I've been mocked a few times by my brother for liking Pokémon. At one time he said that I cannot get any boyfriends when I watch the movies on a date.

He gave me the comments:

"No wonder nobody likes you. Your only interest is Pokémon."

as well as

"Your only thing is Pokémon and the Discovery Channel."

Hey, bro! I like some other stuff besides Pokémon. Man, sometimes having a younger sibling can be a royal pain in the @$$!!

Last year for Halloween, I had this cool costume of Deoxys transformed into a Sandslash. Someone tripped me, and when I got up, there was a splinter in my finger. When I got up, someone noticed the splinter in my finger and said "Dude, you need to quit scratching your head." as he was passing by.

"It's Pokaymoen! Did you just see Pikachu blast or Team Rocket last night?"

Yep, that's the most dumbest insult you've ever talked about to a manga fan...

First, I thought there was a rule called "No Cencor-bypass" and "No flaming."
Secondly, people do not use the word "gay" Literally so if you maybe want to re-edit that.
And lastly, some people don't like Pokémon and thats their problem isn't it?

Yeah but we're just saying what the haters originally said.

One time someone said "You like Pogaymon?!" Or something... how rude.

But uh, if i were to change that to a more appropriate level.. it'd be "Pohomosexualmon" so uhh...

Yeah the "Come on now, you like Po-- what was it again?"
But when it comes to a rude word just try to keep it as stars.
(eg. ***)
Its trash all over the net, we don't want it here. See yah around

what? if we're quoting people then we're not using it directly at anybody, therefore we're not using it as an insult. and it's in no way demeaning to *** (so YOU don't get upset) people, what we're saying is just the truth. *** is in no way a "rude word", it's the way some people feel about other people. and i see no way that emotions can be rude.

I think there's also an unwritten rule entitled "Leave moderating to the moderators."

You're not a forum leader, just as I'm not a member of the Grammar Police. If I were, I'd condemn you for horribly misspelling the word "censor" and just generally typing incoherently. But like I said, I'm in no position to do so. ='(

*Digs through memories* Oh yes, this happened not but a week ago. Role scene:

Jokestr sits down in the bus, to go home. He is wearing a Lugia sticker on one hand, and Raikou on another.
Kid: WTF are you wearin?
Me: uh... Lugia.. and Raikou..
Kid: You still into that Pokemon ****?!
Another kid overhears it.
Kid 2: WTH?
The second kid reaches and tries to rip off the stickers, attracting alot of attention.
Kid 3: *stares at me.*

...When I could actually get some privacy, the stickers were barely sticking, so I peeled them off and stuck them to eachother and put it in my backpack...

See these people were kinda my friends but they didn't know I liked Pokemon... Geez I wonder what'll happen when they find out I like J-Pop lol...

I think the funniest thing i saw was when a yugi-oh kid walked into the place i was going to play a pokemon tournament and said ah-ha all you gay pokay-man lovers are going to play pokay-man.
After the tournament started i noticed the kid was still hanging around after all the yugi players left. Guess who i was paired up with fourth round...
the yugi-oh kid he wasn't good either he looked so desperate to play and he even had a starter deck.
The other thing is that most surviving pokemon players are all really smaryt from what ive seen

A lot of these kids who are saying things to you all sound like total losers o_O;; I, for one, would give them all they give to me. I'm sure a lot of you know a lot of good comebacks, or simply have the ability to successfully intimidate the person saying things to you...people are so darned intolerent of such insignificant things these days...it really depresses me -.-

Yeah I only tell other people I hear like Pokemon, that I also do, at school, to further avoid getting picked on. Luckily my brother likes Pokemon though :P

I know some comebacks.. that I do. But usually at school when I'm not around my friends, keep to myself and act like no one's there, and hope no one notices me... you know, tense and stuff. Not sure why.

I've gotten laughed at and talked behind my back for the "implication" of my liking of Pokémon. A girl that I used to be friends thought it was funny but weird that I had Pokémon CDs and videos. I would tell her that my aunt bought them for me as presents since "it was such a popular fad, she assumed I liked it, too" and all that junk. Still, she went around to a few of my friends and told them that I had Pokémon things then I got wind of what she was saying after a while. Other than that, I never really displayed my interest in Pokémon to people outside of my family--with the exception of that girl. I freely express to most people now that I like anime and they don't mind it. I can't believe how some people can be so rude if they don't approve of something that suits your fancy. It's like that song: "If it makes you happy...then it can't be that bad..."

Ugh, I get made fun of for lots of things such as yu-gi-oh and pokémon. When I'm not getting teased about liking it, I'm getting teased for hanging out with boys that like it...

May 31st, 2004, 11:13 PM
Well, Some of the kids laugh at me for liking Pokemon because it's so old, but the fact is stuff like South Park and Dragonballz is old too, but they watch those. Although Dragonballz is finished now, the thing is they have just admitted they'll automatically hate it and call it childish and stuff as soon as it goes out of fashion. Yet they still let themselves get into things like Yu-gi-oh which they'll probably just hate it when it goes out of fashion or another show comes in fashion.

ya but the thing is dbz was allways a kids show and never really populair in america...well compared to pokemon and other anime's...still of course your going to be mocked if your 13 or older and like pokemon it is a show for kids even the anime is aimed at 12 years olds dont know why i still like it...allthough not many people acutally know that i like it.

June 1st, 2004, 12:29 PM
im not gonna lie , im 16 and almost a junior, and i still like pokemon. except i only like playing the games. other than that i hate the show and everything else. i mean its only a good rpg. but if people like it all alot im not gonna be a ****khead to them and make fun of them. its what they like and thats their own interest.

Chairman Kaga
June 1st, 2004, 03:52 PM
Well since it's geared towards smaller children, it's a nice introduction to the RPG format so children will understand that type of game better when they're older...I wouldn't do half as well with RPGs if I hadn't have played pokemon back when I was 12 I wouldn't be half as good or as interested in RPGs as I am now. It's a nice stepping stone for beginning gamers.

Uugh...People insulted me a TON about it in 5th grade.
Kid: Hey Lindsey, is it true your a pokemon master?
Me:*looks away*
Kid:She said yes!
Everyone nearby: *laughs*

Heh, funny really. The ones who insulted me most back then were the biggest pokemaiacs I've ever seen back in 3rd grade...
The only insult I got about pokemon at all this year (7th grade), was when I was drawing a wolf in my binder because I was bored, one of the rude girly-girls sitting by me said in a mocking voice: "Pikachu! Pikachu! How stupid! Lindsey likes piiiikachu!" Well, in reality I can't stand pikachu's-too popular. And I NEVER draw pokemon at school...

USA is 10 years later than Hong Kong? What a joke!
People hardly remember DragonBall in Hong Kong now! Come on, 10 years ago! Who would play that stuff?
10 years ago -______-||||

Ppl who think that Pokemon's immature is due to their own immature!
They could never discover the mysteries of biological theories in Pokemon. They are too stupid to understand those theories!

June 5th, 2004, 10:28 PM
Here's my story on my pokemon experience, I guess this was the wrong place to post something like this, but yeah...I also have some suggestions at the bottom :)

Well, I first heard about it in, oh, let's see...I think either second or third grade, when the cards were 'unleashed,' It seemed that pretty much everyone had them. Except me. I would ask if anybody had any extra cards that they didn't want...I just got rejected (everyone with cards over there and me with none over here...), and finally I was given a Kakuna card. Then I bought a Fire Energy at a card store.

Charizard was ten bucks...I didn't buy it, but remember that for now...

There was a, like, two month period when I was 'in the group.' By now, I was getting cards more because of my new fondness for pokemon, rather than wanting to be with the other guys (It can become VERY lonely standing around the playground almost completely alone, while everyone is up on the hill with their cards...).

Third to fourth grade, the cards are starting to fade, and the new thing is the Red and Blue Versions...I at this time had no gameboy. I didn't have one (gameboy color) until I got one with my saved allowance in fifth grade. So I was to sit around for a short period drawing Staryus, Starmies and Shellders (quite good ones may I add). I even gave some to classmates who wanted them (a lot wanted them).

Fourth to fifth grade was when I really got into the cards, even after I bought my gameboy color (cartrige?). I went to the weekly (every Friday!) 'gathering,' where I mastered rules, how to trade and how to battle. I got some cool prerelease and promo cards, it was all good. I bought a Gold cartrige, but I still mostly stuck with the cards, improving my skills.

Back at school, people were playing with stupid looking 'mini cards' (???), which resembled small rectangular (like 1x1/2 in.) pieces of cheap cardboard, with a mini picture of a pokemon, its type and stuff like that. Wierd. Anyway, shortly after, pokemon became banned (as it did with many schools across the nation), and pokemon seemed to be 'hated.' The only time it was referred to was if it was being dissed or something, so nobody talked about it. Nobody that still liked it was made fun of though...I got into the Gold Version that I had been neglecting for a while and laid (layed? lied?? lade??? Oh well...) low.

Sixth grade, you may say was a dud. Nobody talked about or mentioned pokemon, and I had become drastically less interested in the cards for a little while. Most others had gotten rid of their cards the previous year (from giving them away to shooting them with a BB gun). Nothing going on.

After a while, people just would, well, it's sort of odd really...
Whenever someone is trying to refer to something in a conversation or joke or something, pokemon gets mentioned a lot, not anything good or bad, it just gets mentioned...

By now I am back in the cards, and back even more so with the game, considering my projects with the creation of Light White and Space Black (see my siggy). I also finished a deck (back in fifth grade), and nobody at all has ever beaten me :D...unfortunately I didn't get to use it when the cards were still hot...If anybody knows a way to battle on the internet or something...

Well that's my story.

The Suggestions:
Many of you are saying things like some person tells you that you're dumb or something because you like pokemon, and that they're the dumb ones, but most of you also say that you just walk away or something. That's a good idea, but there is an alternative...let's look at an example...a quote from PIKA2..


"You're dumb because you like Pokémon! It's for little kids!"

PIKA2: Childish little kid, passes school with high grades.
Insult made by the insulter: Going to summer school, and can't spell the word soda.
There, prove my point. ^_^

That one is my favorite :D

If you are in a situation like PIKA2's, where you know something to contredict the person insulting you, use it! Since it's battling them with logic, they have no reasonable thing to say against it. If they do though, you can just give them a look with one of your eyebrows raised that says 'what you just said was stupid and you know it' and if you want go 'uh-huh' in that expectant questioning voice. They'll have no way to cope with it, so end of problem!

I have no idea if I've helped at all but that's my suggestion!

Well, once when I was in Wal-Mart some kid walked up to me and goes "Pokemon... that is /so gay/". I just blinked, looked down and realized I was wearing my Bulbasaur shirt. Before I could say anything, the guy and his friend are walking off and I thought I heard him saying 'fag' or something. People like that are so pathetic... I don't know how they get pleasure from putting other people down and trying to hurt their feelings... Especially by calling someone gay. But teenagers will be teenagers, cruel as most of them are. =\

Meh, no one really bothers me about it anymore at school. They all know I'm the school's computer guy. I sometimes take in my X-Box, PS2 or GameCube in for the last day of school (it's usually just a mess around day because hardly anyone shows up on the last day of term). I usually take my gameboy in and play it at breaks (and during class (¬_¬)) so I think they've just got used to the fact I love all computer games and it's not just something to do with Pokemon. And if they don't like they wouldn't say anything, at least not to my face. I'm 6'2'' of brute power, pissing me off would just be silly.

They suggested that since Jynx put her hands on her b0()p$ in RBY versions, Gengar must be putting his hand must be on his pen**$

So when they ever saw me, they go in pairs and one puts her hands on her b**p$ and the other one grabs the cloth on her skirt between stomach and legs(so that "something" "sticks out")
They thought that I would laugh, but I was always furious. And they decieded that making me furious is interesting so they do that all the time! @@|||
Is that English culture? I don't know, I'm not a British blood. (but I'm British according to law @@)

I'm quite proud ofmy pokemon status. i found that you can only be insulted if it's ignorant, or your really ashamed of it. For instance, once, I was up here during school and some other students saw me and they said " Look! It's Pokemon! that is for kids, you know that? I should call you Ash from now on." And they laughed like they thought they were smart And I turned to those people and said. "Sure, you can call me that. I'd probably like being called Ash." I was being honest whan I told them that, and they could tell it. They kinda stared at me for a few seconds before going off somehwhere, probably to bother someone whose skin they could actually get under.

My friends don't know that I like Pokemon, which is probalby the best way to have it. Recently my mom found out that I was part of a couple Pokemon foums, and she said, "Aren't you getting a little old for this?" Why don't people understand that Pokemon is more than just the game where you run around with Pikachu and catch Pokemon. Thats what most people think, and its not true. It annoys the crap out of me.

Well, let's try to see stuff from their point of view,
and see what makes it 'kiddy'...
*A main character who often flirts with the opposite sex nearly whenever available, even police officers, and nurses.
*villans which brutally get blasted off every episode and miraculously survive, despite being exploded in that hot air balloon so many times.
*386 pokemon, something you'd need good memory to remember.
*pokemon which fight and fight until one of them faints, and ends up scratched and stuff.
*Mentioning of many legends, which not many little kids can even understand.
So, considering all that, pokemon must be kiddy!
(I'm being sarcastic, you can tell.)

Pine
June 6th, 2004, 07:07 PM
Heh. It is kind of funny how few reasons there are for pokemon to be kiddy. But I do question the plot that the show follows...I wish it could have a bit more depth...

The worst insult I have ever encountered is one that my mom uses all the time. "Why does Pokemon still interest you!? It's for little kids!"

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.... and guess what! She's the only one that cares! Even my friends (who have only recently found out) don't care. ARG!

Absolutely disgusting! Especially when they are Pokefans as well, when you really don't want to tell them off. And sometimes when they are my seniors(that means they have higher knowledge in pokemon) I really don't have the courage to even tell them.

Machamps line, Manectric, Kirlia are also porn emitters! Poor things...

And their are a lot of games out there, where you score points and the more you score, the Haruka or Misty in the background takes of a little bit of clothes. Litterally when you finish the game, the Haruka or Misty end up n@ked. YUCK!!!!!!!!!

Normally, I try to lay low with my liking of Pokemon, being a soon-to-be junior in high-school, I really don't think it would get a good rap if I talked about it openly with my friends. But whenever I let out that I like it amongst a large group of people (mostly made up of friends who like it as well) I get the usual insults, much of which has been listed here. I'm actually quite amazed at how common the "Pokemon is gay" and it's variants show up with everybody. I've gotten that on several occasions before, and I can never seem to counter it with a good comeback. The aggressors seem to not be able to comprehend the English language. Oh well...

But one of the greatest things that I have ever heard walking in the hallways of my high-school was a couple freshmen talking about Ruby and Sapphire strategies. They refered to the different Pokemon correctly along with the names of the characters and gym-leaders. I noticed they lowered their voices a bit as I past by, and I seriously considered doubling back to talk to them, but I changed my mind, thought I'd let them go on with their business. But I had one of my rare genuine refreshed smiles on my face as walked down the rest of the hallway. I thought that it was a wonderful thing to hear that there are others in my school who still like Pokemon, and actually, there was a suprisingly abundant amount of these people.

I have to admit, if you lay low and don't let it out that you enjoy Pokemon, you'll be amazed as to the amount of people you'll overhear talking about it in a positive way. I think it's pretty darn cool actually. Though it's unfortunate I'll probably never be able to talk to these people, share common interests in the game, anime, manga, whatever.

I have not got any insults, if I did, someone would be missing a pEn!$... if it was a girl, I'd let them be...

Then again... If a boy came in contact with me... they'd have five seconds to not get their pEn!$ ripped out...

Only in reality though... virtual is fine... as long as it's only contact... :p ...

Oh and a while back my mom was also suggesting names for my Pokemon babies... That was back when I loved breeding... still do...

I only felt ashamed of liking pokemon in 8th grade, in 7th grade i didn't care too much, it was only in 8th grade when i did, but once i started freshmen year i realized i really didn't care what anyone thought. And true, no one ever made fun of me, so that was when i was a freshmen. Most people think it's either, cute, weird, or lies. If someone would have ever actually made fun of me it would be dumb because i could make fun of them in so many other ways. I'm typing this for people who are ashamed of liking it, i mean what are they going to say "pokefreak"?? that's dumb, because pokemon is for kids? just make fun of them how they think they are all grown up and mature. I mean you should be the ones making fun of them, they think they are mature for watching MTV while mtv is the dumbest mainstream channel ever.
