        Well, I'm 15 and I play it. Kids make fun of me for it, but I have a lot of other friends that either don't care, or play it too. And these kids play COD. (I do too but Pokemon is so much better in my opinion.) I also started when I was around 4 or 5.

          Okay fellow Pokémon fans. I am sure all of you older fans of the game have had at least one person tease you for your liking of Pokémon. However, my stepmother goes a little bit further but her main argument against our favorite franchise is that I am the only non-mentally challenged 15 year old who enjoys it. So I need your help! Just say whether or not you are above the age of 15 and if you are say in college please say what you are majoring. My mom will not listen to ME. Please Help!

          P.S. I did not tell you how she goes too far. Just remember to her all of you guys and girls are mentally challenged.

            I am 25 and play pokemon. She can go eff herself and the horse she rode in on. If you are doing what you need to do and doesnt hurt anything and you got good grades. You should be allowed to play Pokemon when you want. Ive seen 40+ yr olds play

              I think there's already a thread like this but to answer your question, I'm 23 and still watch the show, collect the cards and such.

              I'm 19 and still love it :p

              I don't think any age is too old as long as you still like the games.

                    I'm nearly 18 and I play Pokémon. I'm watching Pokémon from when I was 7-8 and started to at 9-10(Pokémon Arena) and video games from 13.

                        I'm 20 since May, From Cork in Ireland and I rediscovered my love for Pokemon when I went back to college, then influenced my boyfriend to do the same. He's just turned 24 and a college graduate. I've just finished my first year there studying Psychology and I've always been a very good student. As far as being mentally challenged, I don't think I fit the bill.

                        In fact, in terms of Pokemon and most gaming in general, gamers seem to be some of the more intelligent people in the population in my opinion. Although that could be largely due to the socioeconomic background these gamers are from. I mean, to have video games you have to have money. Same with an education really. Mentally challenged is the complete opposite of what we are if you ask me.

                        And don't even get me started on the in depth game mechanics of Pokemon that even I don't understand. IVs, EVs, Contests, etc. It's crazy! No child of 3-10 could fully comprehend all of that to a standard that's actually useable in game!

                        I'm 28 and am have been playing Pokemon since it migrated over to the US from Japan. I plan to continue to play it for as long as it's around.
                        And I agree with everyone else; it hurts no one to like Pokemon.
                        Even though I may act "mentally challenged" at times, I'm far from it. I'm in the military and am taking college courses in medicine.

                                Man I just cannot resist to play and watch pokemon even though I am about to become 25. I started getting involved into Poke World when I was about 13 years old

                                I'm 19. I'm a biochem major. A friend and classmate of mine is going for a joint Bachelor's of Pharmacy and D. Pharm, and I think she's a bigger fan than I am XD

                                  I'll be 24 in a couple of months. I'm definitely not secretive about loving Pokemon still.

                                  And WOW! This thread makes me feel much better about my age. I thought I was part of a huge minority. lol

                                        I'm 18, but come October I'll be 19. I've been playing since 1999. Pokemon is my second favorite game series of all time.
