Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, hens return two years later in Black2 & White2.

My excuse is that I want a really good Pokemon battle. (NPC trainers are too easy.)

I have no reason to be ashamed, I'm not one to think that another's opinion of me is too important. (unless it's really bad like they think I murdered someone or something )

I went to the midnight release of BW last year and the majority of people there were older than me and my friend (we were both 16 at the time) Majority there were probably 18-19 to early 20s with like one 11-12 year old there.

I am a female, 24 and have bought pokemon games at videogame stores many times. I have no shame and the cashiers don't even blink or look twice.
One even gave me extra info on which version to buy when I was choosing black or white.

The games themselves are some of the best RPG's you will ever come across. Besides, it's not like I need an excuse since I know a bunch of people IRL who also play it.

...I skipped everything after Crystal until HG/SS. Second Gen was always my favorite. I discovered that the games are still fun as an adult. There are no excuses needed for more Pokemans!!!

My excuse is that I, for once, will be using my own money that I've been saving since the summer to buy B2 or W2 rather than use my parents' money

My excuse is nothing. I mean its nothing to be embarresed of. I just went last minute to get Keldeo, one of the workers there just went, "Oh you're picking up a Keldeo? sweet"
A KELDEO. and proudfully walked out with my new Pokemon and a poster.

I used to be kind of insecure about still playing Pokémon, but I've finally realized it's no big deal. I just walked into Gamestop and bought it this time with no pretense of getting it for someone else or whatever. Incidentally, both of the guys working were also fans, so we got to talk about how excited we were to play. Most people who pick on others for their hobbies are just projecting their own insecurities and trying to fit in. There are tons of people of all ages who either still play or have fond memories of when they did.

I just bought it. Actually most people buying it were highschool/college age. The real funny thing is a few kids were buying games like Halo and other M rated games while the older people bought pokemon. Found it funny :D
