    When will you guys quit playing? When the last game comes out? Will you replay the games? Will you clear the Pokedex (legitimatly). When 6th gen reveals that all the new pokemon are inanimate objects? Etc. I will keep playing even after the games end, replay all the games, try and fail to complete the Pokedex, etc. When will you quit?
    Til Death, basically.

      I don't really see it as something I ever want to stop playing. Even if I never buy new games, I'll always enjoy the ones I already own and revisit them from time to time. Pokemon was such a huge part of my childhood, I don't see any reason why I should have to give it up just because I'm a grown up.

      As long as they keep making the games well and continue to bring new and interesting ideas to the field, I'll keep buying them. Seems reasonable to me.

      I don't really think I can ever see myself not playing Pokémon. I think I'd probably stop when the actually franchise just sort of dies out; even then, I most likely still play the games I do have until I forget about them and/or lose interest in them completely. I'd like to think that the day I stop playing is the day I die.

      The actual thought of the possibility of me quitting Pokémon is making quite sad, to be honest. Pokémon has always been apart of my life, and I'd hate for it to just...not be anymore.

      I don't know when I'll quit, honestly. The games and anime are enough to keep me in the franchise for now.

        Until I can't emulate them anyone.

        Just kidding of course though the fact I was able to emulate my older games did help to get me into the mood of Pokemon, if I didn't go back to my older games I would most likely completely ignore gen 5 just like how I ignored gen 4. As long I can emulate the games that I own legally I doubt I would really ever quit playing the older games. The battery life is no longer an issue.

        As for the newer ones, though the "trade while the Pokemon is holding this item" is annoying I can see how they would be able to make it worst. "After this Pokemon been traded while holding this otherwise useless item, you need to train it inside this exact area while it's happiness is max during nighttime. You also need a spare Pokeball and depending on the weather at the time it may have up to 4 forms. blah blah blah o yea and it need to be holding a master ball when you level up and the item shall be lost during evolution." Sometimes I wish they would get the hint that people want it less complex, not more. The fact we have hacks so you can collect them all in one cart and evolve them without the crazy requirements should be a good sign. Do the Japanese seriously enjoy that stuff?

        Also of there were to take the DLC/pay-to-play route then I would have to stop cold turkey. I can deal with Dragon Warrior Monsters and Shin Megami Tensi just as well as Pokemon. Honestly I am only into Pokemon as they were the series that won between Digimon, DWM, Monster Ranchers, etc in the monster game clone war. I honestly could do without Gamefreak if given the choice for my monster catching/training games.
        Just for fun I am running a massive favorite Pokemon poll. Unlike most common polls this will list the most favorite to the least favorite at the bottom of the page. I won't be mad if you only vote for a few of them though I would love it if you vote for all of them. PM me if you voted for all of them, I would like to keep a list of people who actively vote so I can PM them for the next round.

        -Sadly not by my choice you are forced to have a Facebook or make an account on the site to vote. I recommend making an account, the site is quite useful for tournaments of any kind and you don't even need to verified the account at all. My existing account been unverified for over a year now out of laziness.
        -You may vote as little or as much as you like though once you hit the button then it is set in stone for any votes that you did made. For example you can do half of the 1st gen one day and the other half the next. You just can't change your mind later for anything you already voted for. If the button no longer there then you voted for everything possible for that round.
        -I will only update this when I feel I have a decent amount of votes to give a decent result.
        -You may vote for that Pokemon for any given reason. Just go for your personal favorite.
        -If you need a reference of their designs then you can use this or your favorite site with images.

              Never, hopefully. I might end up quitting if Pokemon takes a turn for the worst though, and eventually Pokemon is going to die out.

              I don't think I'll ever stop. I would like to see myself playing pokemon in my deathbed. :3

              I can't honestly say though. I might stop playing when working life takes over, but I'll always have pokemon in my HEART. <3

              I was fairly close to quitting Pokemon. I stopped playing BW for several months now and didn't pick up BW2 on launch date. All the buzz and the posts made me want to get White 2. hmph. Although Pokemon is a huge part of my life, I believe I will be over it by age 30. Dunno why 30. My older brother plays PS3 and he's above 30. I don't know how he handles that and all his responsibilities, though.

                I don't think I'll even quit playing pokemon unless I find some other game series to replace it.

                  Sure life'll slow down my playing but I'll probably never quit. I might stop for awhile, but pick up a random game and sit down and play, even when I'm much older. I'll be playing with my grandkids.

                    Either until I'm dead or I go senile.

                    Otherwise I don't see myself stopping. Even if life slows down my playing I doubt I'll stop.

                        Thinking of you, wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, and they share the same sky - one sky, one destiny.

                        I don't think there's any certain age where I'll stop playing Pokemon. I guess it really depends on how long the franchise lasts, but hopefully I'll be able to keep playing till the bitter end (although, I don't think I could see myself following the series as much if it still has another 15-20+ years in it).

                        I will never quit Pokemon until I end or the series ends. It just always keeps me motivated every time.

                          I'd like to say I'd never stop, but I doubt that'll happen. Working life will probably take over. I start university next year, and I probably won't have as much time as I'd like.

                            Unfortunately I don't know how much longer I will be playing. The series really needs a new direction, and the nostalgia from growing up with G/S/C and R/S/E is starting to wear thin due to extensive amounts of replays. I still do not own a copy of White2, because I don't know how much it interests me. It's all same-old, same-old.

                            As long as the series is going to whet my appetite and give me the new things I would like to experience, instead of rehashes of what has been done, I will continue playing. I really can't specify an age...
                            This'll do for now.

                              I would keep playing til i die i guess, but if the franchise dies or something then i might stop.

                                I would keep playing until the franchise dies, but yeah, I'm not sure.

                                Hmm, ^ I tried to get Garchomp, but I don't think it's there.

                                  I think I'll never stop playing Pokemon. Even if the franchise dies, why would I quit? I have a lot of reasons not to, a few of them being that the games are fun every time I play through them, there are some games I haven't played yet (None of the DS generation, actually) and there are a lot of unresolved mysteries in the games I've played already multiple times. So yeah, those are good enough reasons, really.

                                  Pokemon is a part of my heart, I will never quit playing Pokemon games. Even if the franchise ends, I will continue with Pokemon. On my last day on Earth I will be playing Pokemon games.

                                  instead of 'Catch 'em All' for me would be "gotta Pet 'Em All"
