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.

      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.

        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.

          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.

            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.

              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.

              I just ignore what they say. Everyone has a different opinion on things.

                  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

                    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?

                      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.

                        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.

                        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.

                          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.

                            I get really mad at whoever insulted Pokemon. After cooling down after a few minutes, I just walk away.

                            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.

                            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.

                              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

                                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.
