Do you think you'll outgrow Pokémon over time? How many years more do you think you'll still like it? Or do you really think you'll like it forever?

I don't think i'd ever get tired of pokemon.
And even if i stopped playing games, i'd still think of them as nostalgic things.

Even if I lose interest, I'll still look back on it in years to come and remember the great times I had involving the series when I was young. It's been a major part of my life and always will be.

I will give it up (probably in around 2 - 5 years). This same day i actually had a look at my childhood Pokémon cards - good memories . I'll always make sure i have a few left so i can look back at my childhood.

It'll probably last a very long time. Until pokemon games stop coming out or the anime is done or something, that's when I'll probably lose interest, but I won't hate it or anything.

I'll still look back on it.

My interest in Pokémon is already fading, actually. It's not that I've grown out of the series, it's just that I'm losing interest in training and raising Pokémon and all that stuff. Who knows, though, I might get back into Pokémon. XD; I will still remember all the fun I had with Pokémon years from now, and I don't think I'd ever truly grow out of it. Lose interest, yes, but not grow out of it.

I've never stopped loving Big Bird, so I don't intend on losing interest in Pokemon.

In fact, if I get a video game that's not Pokemon, I'll play it for a while...and go back to playing Pokemon. Simple as that. I grow out of other things, like Harry Potter(still haven't finished the 7th book), A Series of Unforunate Events, lots of things.

Stuff I started on from a young age won't go away. So...I'll be on it for years to come. :D

Well I'm sixteen now.
I think that liking something like Pokemon is hardest so to speak, when you're at this age. Simply because a teenager is easily impressionable to reject things because of its image.

But I'm sticking with it now, so I don't see why I would drop it later on.
Pokemon always cheers me up, along with some good music. That's something special, right. =]

I'll always have a.. "place" for Pokemon, though it won't be on the top of my to-do list. I think it would be a shame to just give up Pokemon cold turkey, especially after I've stored countless numbers of information in my brain ;

It's hard to tell. My interest in it has had its ups and downs, and right now it's on quite a high. If I had to make an estimate, it'd probably be in around 4-6 years, but I could be completely wrong. If you asked me when I was eleven whether I'd still be interested in pokemon when I was fifteen, the answer would probably be "no", but here I am. XD;

Every half a year (usually) I go into a complete Pokémon frenzy mode and remember how much I love the series. It's probably unnatural (I do it with a lot of series' though. ATM I'm in Final Fantasy mode, when just over a week ago I was in Pokémon mode... I'll prolly go back into Pokémon mode in a few weeks though.)

I'm 17 and I've liked Pokémon since it started. I think anyone who's going to grow out of it has done so already. Anyone still here is here to stay

Pokemon has been a huge part of my life and I can't see myself throwing all of those great memories away for the near future. If I can, I'll hopefully still buy the franchise for the next decade before I decide Nintendo/Gamefreak have completely destroyed it. It'll always be a part of me, and I really can't tell you how long my interest in Pokemon itself (not the franchise) is going to last.

I can't really tell. I mean I have been interested in it for over ten years now and the only thing that has wavered with it is the fact that I have grown tired of the anime, otherwise my liking for the games, cards ect are perfectly fine. I don't think I will grow tired of the games and such, I like them too much, as long as new games are available to purchase, I don't think I will ever abandon it to be honest with you.

For me, I'll probably start losing interest in it bit by bit until I either stop caring about it or reminisce about it on occasion. Of course, I don't think that'll happen anytime soon considering I'm still quite into it, but I suppose once I start working for real and live on my own, I'll probably stop with the fandom. But then I suppose after that, once I've settled down and everything, I'll just pick it right back up. xD

I don't think I'll lose interest in it..
See? When I finished Crystal a long time ago, I discovered Ruby. Then, after that, Diamond. After Diamond, I ventured into FireRed. Then, I went back to Ruby. After that, restarted Crystal. Now I'm playing Pearl. And soon, when Platinum is out, I'd probably try that. And then, I'm afraid I'll go through the cycle again, maybe Emerald, Gold, who knows? Even after they stopped making Pokemon games, I'd still play again and again, and the movies that I own, that too won't be forgotten in a hurry.

If they continue to have the same storyline over and over again, I see myself completely losing interest in Pokemon after two more gens or so. You can only redo something so many times...

Well, my motive for playing them is they're fun, so I see myself playing them for as long as they bring them out. How long that will be all depends on what kind of inspiration the creators have for new Generations, and the like.

Here's to hoping the storyline has some changes, though. Basically, domination has been the complete focus from them all.
