Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

      My excuse would be that I like Pokemon games and my 3DS is collecting dust.

        Is Pokemon really that unpopular in certain areas? I live in a city that was built around a technology university, and most of the college kids around here love Pokemon. We have an official Pokemon league that meets just outside of the campus, and some of the members are even over 30 years old... even they don't hide their hobby.

        I'll just go to the game store the day of release, ask for my pre-ordered copy with a smile, and play with all my friends right there. C:

          Why should I really be ashamed to buy Pokémon games?
          They're pretty damn popular in the age groups that grew up with the games.

          Besides, when I go there and pick up the game, I think the cashiers will have seen so many people coming to buy it that they're not gonna care about whether I do or not.

              My excuse is "I want it".

              Simple.

              I would be ashamed of myself if I ever ridiculed somebody for doing something they enjoy. (as long as they're not hurting anyone by doing it of course) The last thing anybody needs is me judging them for every little thing.

                My excuse? I want it. It's the most anticipated Pokemon game ever, so why not.

                I definitely won't feel ashamed, I've been a Pokemon fan all my life and everyone here in my place knows it. Surely they can't do a single thing if that's a person's interest.

                  My excuse? Do y'all (the clerks) want to see my money, or not? If not, I can always take my business elsewhere. Oh yeah, I'll also tell them I plan on evaluating it for my blog (which isn't a lie either).

                  Or I can always come stumbling into the store acting like I'm drunk. They'll just chalk it up to an impulse purchase made while intoxicated.

                    I don't need an excuse to buy it. I have no reason to be ashamed of playing the game.

                      I think what's sad is criticizing people for being ashamed to like the series, let alone buy anything related to it. That is almost as bad, if not worse, than people criticizing for liking the franchise as a whole. You're being nothing but a hypocritical fanboy.

                      Whether you like Pokemon or being ashamed about it, it doesn't matter, regardless of age. It also doesn't matter if others think people of older age shouldn't play the games or enjoy the series. I personally don't like Pokemon anymore, and think it's rehash after rehash, but whether people like it or hate it is the least of my concerns. Now, criticizing others for their opinions, no matter which side, is what doesn't fly by me.

                      I work in retail and when people buy things that aren't targeted at their demographic, they always come up to the counter and say things like "oh this isn't for me" - and therefore I know from personal experience that the cashier doesn't give a crap what you buy... because I know I don't give a crap what anybody wants to buy.

                      So when I go to the counter at the game store, I do it the same way I'd buy a packet of chocolate biscuits. It's also the same way I'd buy a pack of condoms. I'd walk easily to the counter, ask for the game, get it and leave lol. I'm even buying both versions, so I should be doubly embarrassed... but I'm not

                        It shames me more to be a part of the society where people could question my interest in a video game - Especially a game so fun and successful , than it ever would to buy the game in the first place. I can't imagine needing an excuse... But that's not what the topic's about, so...

                        If for some reason I felt that I needed an excuse, something like 'I'm buying it for my younger sister' Though, that would hardly be a lie. Come the end of the year, I'll probably have brought this game five times over - I get both, my sisters get one each, and I'll buy my dad a copy for Christmas - He loves the Pokemon games ^.^

                          Everyone is a geek of some sort and should be ashamed of it. Those of us in this community are pokegeeks. Others Call of Duty, Halo, etc.. Others fitness and so forth. I admit I am a pokegeek, or pokenerd. One should be ashamed of that and if your friends cant accept that fact, well then they werent your friends in the first place were they?

                          ^ That makes no sense to me. I don't need an excuse, I just love Pokemon and have loved it for 14 years. People shouldn't be ashamed to be a nerd or geek or Pokenerd. And as other have mentioned you shouldn't be ashamed to be a Pokemon game and no one at the store really gives a crap what you buy.

                          I had a conversation about the games once with the clerk when I was buying BW, and they were many years older than me, haha.

                          I don't really care - I just go and buy the game. As such my excuse for buying the game will be 'because it's fun'. =p

                            I won't be buying them, they had a great opportunity to make a new addition to the Pokemon story and franchise but instead made two of the third color.

                              Back when I bought Diamond I felt a LITTLE shy, because no one, and I mean NO.ONE.plays pokemon in my country T_T It's strange that they even sell pokemon games here.
                              But when I bought White I didn't care, and what's more, I found it really amusing when boys or men stare at me at the shop, saying something like "omg a pretty girl plays games? that's cool~" with their gaze, LOL.
                              As for the "exuse" part - if I want something, other people's thoughts are the last thing that I care about.

                                I don't think people should need an excuse, it's a game. I never really understood why Pokemon was to be deemed a "kids" game, and games like Mario aren't. I'll probably buy it through Best Buy and get the reward points.

                                  I'll probably quietly/nonchalantly (or I'll try as best as I can) hand it to the cashier and then be on my merry way. Perhaps I'll order it online though...

                                    I'm pre-ordering them both to be picked-up IN STORE so i guess i don't really care. I mean i was VERY ashamed when i got my event (Snarl) Zoroark from EB Games. <.<; But when i picked up White at K-Mart, i just wanted it THAT badly, i'd been waiting 3 months post-release. So my excuse is that "i've waited patiently since i heard of it, so I don't really care what you think." Plus, if they do a Midnight release, i'll be with other Pokemon Geeks.

                                    What are you talking about? Sequels ARE a new addition to the Pokemon story. In fact, they're a continuation to the Black and White story which is different than making a third version with just extra features and basically the same story but altered a bit. It's actually an innovation to the franchise and is a change. That's kind of silly if that's your only excuse for not buying these games.
