What's your reaction to people who insults Pokemon?

I usually leave them alone. Unless they come up to me and say to my face that "HAHAH POKEMON SUX" then there will be trouble. Big trouble.

Smack them. If I know them, for their birthday or Valentines (If they are a girl) Ill either A. Buy pokemon game and give them as a present, or B. Buy a plushie and force them to keep it... But most of the people I know play Poke or used to, so they dont make fun of me..Perhaps they are scared of me? I am prone to being a bit violent..Oh well *shrugs* But yeah, if you dont like Pokemon, keep it to yourself, or at least dont hate on it..Or youll probably be hurting when you go home ;)

They're entitled to their opinion so I don't get too worked up about it, frankly I tell them I couldn't give a monkeys what they think of Pokemon or what I do in my spare time, it is none of their concern.

May 4th, 2011, 8:03 AM
I don't play and have never played outside my home, and Pokemon criticism appears really rarely. If it occurs, I don't say anything and ignore it.

May 4th, 2011, 2:21 PM
I don't think it happened to me except from my parents. If it did I'd just say "noooo it's so cool!" with a funny voice.

May 4th, 2011, 2:33 PM
I would just reply, something like: "Hey! Guess who cares what you think? Not me!"

May 4th, 2011, 2:33 PM
Then they're ridiculous for saying that. Everyone has different likes and dislikes. If we were all the same then the world would be a very boring place.

May 4th, 2011, 2:55 PM
I agree, everyone is entitled to their likes/dislikes. It's all a matter of opinion. What I don't tolerate is the people that can say things "suck" without having a justified reason to back it up.

May 4th, 2011, 3:37 PM
I'd do what I always do. Say "Whatever" and walk away. .w.;

Idk why people feel the need to stand up for pokemon. It just makes your situation worse and they'll most likely annoy you more. :/ No offense, but yeah.

May 4th, 2011, 3:44 PM
I just ignore what they say. Everyone has a different opinion on things.

May 4th, 2011, 4:07 PM
I challenge them to a Pokemon battle.

May 4th, 2011, 4:24 PM
Pokemon counts as a good name in my city so nobody really makes fun of it. I go to this skatepark and you will hear Pokemon talk once awhile. haha

May 4th, 2011, 4:51 PM
I just shrug it off, mainly. Most of the people I know think that Pokemon is a game for nerdy little 8-year-old boys who have no friends and that they're just too good for it. I might call them a Magikarp (or a Stunfisk) in my mind, but I usually don't say much. XD

Then again, I do talk about Pokemon a lot in public with my friends who have a better opinion of it. Some of them don't play it and really don't mind my talking about it; they actually really like some of the Pokemon. In fact, it's usually the people who actually play the game who don't want to talk about it in front of others. I say, what's the shame in it? :P

May 4th, 2011, 6:27 PM
Cool then.

Kids talk to me like that all the time, but I really don't care. They have their opinions and I have mine, even if they are noobish.

May 4th, 2011, 6:41 PM
I simply reply with a very eloquent:

I usually say something back. Like, it's tons better than yu-gi oh and that yu-gi oh is just a knock off basically. Along with Digimon but Digimon is great too. And I also say, at least the Pokemon are cuter than you. People get insulted by that last one, and they just walk away.

May 4th, 2011, 6:51 PM
Yeah, same. I act calm about it, as I don't really care. Everyone views things differently. I used to be a Pokemon hater,as well. But I took a closer look at it, got a game, and I got hooked.

May 4th, 2011, 6:55 PM
I have loved pokemon since I was little and I was not ashamed to admit it.

When someone insults it I really couldn't care less. I usually just say "I love pokemon" and act calm about it.

May 5th, 2011, 2:47 AM
I challenge them to a Pokemon battle.

Quality! lol That some quite witty banter there lol

Nobody says it to my face because they know i will give them a slapping lol but people try and do it over the internet like a coward but it doesnt bother me lol and im 23 and shouldnt really still be playing but have been for years so **** em!

May 5th, 2011, 3:14 AM
I get really mad at whoever insulted Pokemon. After cooling down after a few minutes, I just walk away.

May 5th, 2011, 3:21 AM
I pretend to have ignored them and leave, but if they follow me to continue criticizing my lifestyle they end up getting punched in the face.

May 5th, 2011, 3:37 AM
If somebody came up to me and tried bagging me for liking Pokemon, etc, etc.
I'd probably just go, "You got a problem with that?"
...Actually, it's happened before. xD;
If someone was just insulting it out of thin air, though. I'd leave them alone.

May 5th, 2011, 5:43 AM
Most of my classmates insult Pokémon. When they insult Pokémon,I get really mad that I could beat them up even if it's a girl. Well, not really....I just beat them up in my mind. I'm not that violent.

Maybe next time...when someone insults Pokémon..I'm going to turn my hand to a fist for a warning XD

May 5th, 2011, 6:54 AM
Kick them in the quad!!

no, I'll just walk away since they not know how many time I've been dedicated for pokemon breeding. And they ain't never see a good fan art of pokemon too.

I don't care. They have every right to think that, it is a childs game that has grown into a huge franchise for everyone so I think it is fine for them to think that, especially when older people play pokemon. But if they say it to your face then leave them alone I guess, they are obviously obnoxious and rude.

May 5th, 2011, 2:13 PM
I don't tell people irl that I like Pokémon at all. But when I hear them say something to someone else about it, I ignore it. I don't contribute to it, nor do I dispute it.

Well, like said, people are entitled at their own opinions. Its just a matter of if they respect ours.


When people don't really respect your opinion, the best thing to do is just ignore them. Pokemon is a franchise that I've been a fan of for years; and my likeness isn't going to stop just because someone says: "Pokemon is so ridiculous".

May 7th, 2011, 4:52 PM
I then tell them that the guy who made it made over $5 billion, so it doesn't matter what their poor opinion is, the guy who made it is a marketing genius.

statistics to tell that person:
there are 585 Episodes.
13 movies
37 different games
one TCG
7 Mangas
and more than anything

Fastest Grown Cartoon franchise of all time!!!
worth $5 billion
