Pokemon is for kids is the most annoying thing, ever. Pokemon is for everyone, except the haters, of course, they can psyducking leave.

In Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, you can say you've played pokemon for 20+ years.

So, the creators sure don't think this is 'just a kids game' :P

It's so interesting because I think this whole "Pokemon is for babies/kids!!" kind of mindset, at least in my experiences, has been more perpetuated years ago than it is currently. I think because of the success of Pokemon Go, more and more people are getting into Pokemon that really haven't before, so you don't really see very many people make these kinds of comments.

    I keep saying about Pokemon in my workplace to my female friend, then she asks if i'm 3, then when i quote Aim to be a pokemon master's "under the girl's skirt" she thinks it's dirty

    Pokemon and DB are for kids, but it's too mature for us

    I don't think it's untrue. It pretty much is aimed at kids. The anime alone is a prime example of it.

    It's why when I say I like the games to those unfamiliar, I have to stress it's for RPG purposes only. Because of the stigma attached.
    And if I'm being totally honest, apart from just the gameplay itself, I find the entire franchise of Pokemon to actually be quite embarrassing overall.

    Since I present myself as a 'girly girl' pretty much all the time in real life, I kinda don't care if people know if I like something 'childish' :P I mean, girly girls typically like cute things? So people probably don't care too much overall when I tell them i'm a pokemon fan. Not when I already wear cute dresses and make up when I go out a lot lol

    They probably just assume i'm into something 'for kids' for the sake of adorable xD Not too bad I suppose.

    Yeah definitely, most of the people who've been joining our local TCG league since GO are 20+. Its part nostalgia, part rediscovery of a franchise they loved and now love again.

    In fairness if someone tried to talk to me about sexual acts whilst calling themselves a pokemon master I'd probably either walk off or laugh at them. You should try either talking about why you like it despite its perceived audience, or if your friend doesn't like it or thinks its childish you could try not talking about it to her.

      Sometimes, its kind of FUN when other people claim to 'outgrow' Pokemon.

      Just cuz you can possably get free pokemon stuff out of them then >D Hahaha.

      (...even if its still silly they think they're 'too old' for it xP still, haha. THINK OF THE FREE HAND ME DOWNS PEOPLE!!! :P *evil laughter*)

        What do you think about it? Is this comment still present in your life? I don't know why but it is not as present in my life as before. Did it had an impact on how you play the game or call yourself a Pokemon lover? How do you respond to this kind of comments about Pokemon?
        Well, Pokémon is for kids. That's a fact.

        That said, something aimed at kids can be enjoyed by adults too. Adults only need to accept it for what it is.
