    I mean you find them so cute that you rub your finger on their characters on the screen? I find some Pokemon like Skitty and Pikachu so cute I sometimes cannot resist touching them on the screen!

      Uh... no, can't say I do.

      They are very cute, though. I'll give you that.

        No. Rubbing the screen will make my screen dirtier than it already is, so I won't.

          That has never even crossed my mind lol, so I don't do it. I'd much rather hold onto a cute Pokemon plush while watching :3

            I meant the LCD screen of a laptop or desktop computer.

                Err.. no. Rubbing your fingers across the TV screen on a fictional character who you're never gonna meet in real life is too weird to me and even quite creepy.

                Um... why in the world would I do that? I do TV commentary instead of rubbing the Pokemon on the screen. Besides, I want my TV screen to stay clean.

                  Nope, can't say that I do. Besides getting fingerprints on my screen (whether it be on the television or laptop), I think it would be rather... creepy to say the least.

                    I just had this weird thought about touching the screen and my finger going through to the other side and getting zapped into the anime universe. That would be funny if that did happen.

                    I saw the title on the main page and it said "Do you touch Pokemon on the..." and I was like "WTF KIND OF THREAD IS THIS?!"

                    In the end though, I was disappointed. But anyway, no I don't touch Pokemon on the screen, because that's a little weird . There is an ad for TV screen wipes on TV at the moment though which shows the whole family touching the TV screen for various reasons, so I guess it is something people do.

                      Pretty much this. I don't have any urge to touch any Pokemon, even one of my favorites such as Blaziken. If anything, I would only touch the screen to shield my view of Pokemon I generally dislike such as Blissey or Phione...but even then, I would hardly ever be motivated or have the energy to do such a thing, and I can generally withstand the sight of all Pokemon whenever I get the chance to watch the Pokemon anime on television.

                      This. XD (although I'm not sure what other words could properly complete that phrase, other than something like "...down low?", and that's getting into territory that I'd like to stay away from regarding Pokemon themselves :cer_laugh

                        Oh maaaaan, I've seen people wipe the tears off of crying characters' faces from other series (a good friend of mine actually did that with a character in Inazuma Eleven while another did that with Persona 4, with tissue paper and all), but touching Pokemon on the screen? xD (oh arceus help that sounded so wrong)

                        No, actually, that thought has never occured in my mind. Though I don't think it's THAT creepy given that people actually do that. Sort of.

                          Never done that before, but some friends of mine like to talk to their pokemon in the games.

                            Not on computer screens, but I do it a lot on Pokemon books, or my own drawings, but I instead prefer to pet my real cat.

                              This pretty much sums up my thoughts on this :\

                                No I don't, I'd feel weird if I do that.

                                  No, but hearing that someone does that is adorable.

                                  I'd worry too much about getting the screen dirty. ^^;

                                  But, some Pokemon do look like they'd be very cuddly and snuggly in real life~ if you were friendly enough with them to touch, anyway.

                                  Not on the tv screen, no. That does seem a bit odd for me to do, but it's not like a horrible weird thing.
                                  Now, the games, on the other hand...

                                  The only way I rub a screen is when Justin Bieber is on TV I sometimes kiss the screen, cuz he's so sexy!
                                  Lovely mental image.

                                  Anyway, I am too lazy to go up to the tv and rub it. When I play the games though, I do kinda rub the screen if it's something cute or fuzzy lol. :( When I look through the boxes on my sister's games, rubbing the screen usually indicates that I like that Pokemon haha. OKAY I'm gonna go be weird somewhere else bye!
