Who cares what others think of you for liking a video game. I'm 22 years old and I get people making fun of me all the time for liking pokemon. I just tell them, "Why are you giving me flack for liking a certain video game? I don't make fun of you for enjoying the stuff you like." Most people have it in their head that pokemon is a children's game because when it came out, they were kids themselves. They don't beleive the series has grown up with them, and I'm not going to lie, the series does have it's childish aspects, but it also has it's mature aspects like IV's, EV training, battle strategy and much more. People really need to calm down on the whole "pokemon is for kids" thing.
