My excuse is having a full-time job, being 23, and not caring what people think of what I play because I'm an adult. 8D

I just want the game because of what most members in this thread said earlier. I just want it. I don't care what people around me think. Plus, I'm very curious as to how Unova looks like 2 years later, as it is very interesting to learn new things :)

Basically, the anime is used to attract kids, and the games are for keeping those "kids" that would later become adults into the franchise.

Most fans of Pokemon got interested in it because of the anime, play the game when they're young and continue on even when they're older. They're pretty smart for changing things up in BW and BW2 because many people who skipped D/P and HG/SS got back into it.

I beat the original Yellow version at the ripe age of 7. I didn't understand Grinding, but I beat Brock with a level 25 Pikachu... Anyways, I'm going to walk into Gamestop and loudly proclaim that they hand over my copy.

back in the old times I was too excited about the new game that was out so I didn't give a damn what others think!! it's a new pokemon game!!! I'm the happiest girl on this entire universe at the moment xD

However, when gen 5 came out I already got into college.. and it started to feel really weird for a girl to walk into a game store, a girl at my age at least in this side of the world =< so I ordered it online, and I have no worries getting W2 as my husband will gladly get it for me ~~

You really think a 12 and under kid is gonna beat some guys on RM with an un-prepared team? Or rng a shiny , flawless or shiny and flawless poke?

It takes patience , determination and good comprehension to understand rng , it ain't easy

And it takes time to make that battle-team a winner ; with understanding each and every opponent's battle-style/strategy , type advantage/disadvantages , moves to use , and stats to give that upper-edge in battle when you need it most .

Pokemon ain't a kids game , get your facts right or face my groudon's 2094.4 lbs. body!

I agree, The games are total strategy.

I need no excuse to buy a good game, not even the famous "it's for my cousin" xD I bought white with my girlfriend, even if she doesn't like the game much she suggested me to buy it cause it was at a good price. Generally i buy online (way cheaper) so i don't have to face GS staff.

Pokemon is a game made by adults. Why should I feel ashamed to get it? Besides, I think my mom would be a lot more proud of me of spending my money on a Pokemon game then spending it by going out and drinking beer! =D

I actually kind of find it funny how I see kids these days only getting and wanting to play shooters and those rated mature sand-box games. COD is for children! xP

Video game related top tens anyone?

So when the day BW2 comes out in English. Would you become a man with over 9000 testosterone and face the cashier and say, "Can I buy Pokemon White 2?", or will you wear your antisocial hoodie, pull the strings on the hoodie until you look like Kenny from South Park, and confront the cashier with a Post-it on your palm saying "Can I buy that game called Pokemon Black 2?".

I'm interested to hear yours.
In my country I don't think we need excuses, we have made it pretty much a trend without mattering age. I am the type of dude that is seen as a party animal while i wear my pokewalker or on the tip of my guitar, or demential pilot due to attaching my pokewalker to my airplane so the vibrations in flight would get me even more steps when not walking. So I'm sure ill just go and be like "I WANT BOTH!! >=D!!" In my college when HG/SS came out everyone weared pokewalkers, so did people at hangouts hehe. We made a community for my country with over 2000 fans and it keeps going up, most of them are from 16 to 27 years old. Wierd eh?

80% of Competitive Pokémon players in my country are over 20s xD!

"But Moooom, I haven't caught 'em all yet!"

My excuse is simply that I need no excuse. I want the game, therefore I shall obtain it. No middleman excuses to go through.

I already paid off my pre-order for White 2 in full, too, so there's that.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

I just walk into a gamestop where I live and ask for a Black and white 2 game.
I don't really care about what people think, sometimes when I'm bored in class I just pop out my DS and start playing Pokemon.

I was asked by the guy at Gamestop if I wanted to pre-order Black or White 2. So I did. Nothing much to say about it. I wanted the game anyways so why not?

I actually never thought about being embarrassed to play it, I mean people in my college don't play but it never crossed my mind, I got to my GameStop at 11 am (opening) and ask for the game, there are a couple of kids and I even saw a couple getting B/W before, only reason I don't play on campus is because I have consecutive classes then I leave, plus I'd like to focus on my work

Like every year, I'll ask for the game, throw down my two 20s get my pennies back and drive to my dorm and play it with sweaty palms of pure excitement, as I do every year
