    They find out your a pokemon fan? Ive shocked many people, mostly as Im seen as someone whos more into fashion and style instead of video games like pokemon so Ive shocked many when I told them Im a big fan of pokemon and I love battling. Its also an issue when Im at pokemon events as I get stared at XD. so lets hear from you.

    Some are some aren't. Those that know I'm a crazy animal lover & gamer aren't surprised. Those who don't know me very well normally are ^^

    If I say that in my school I would get the sh!t beaten out of me, so that would be a no. They are not surprised, because I haven't told them. They don't need to know anyway........

    disappoitning how one would get beaten up for liking it, It annoys me when people question me liking. And what, pray tell is wrong with a girl who loves fashion liking pokemon? Nothing thats what d:<

    Well, not like physical beatings...but mental abuse. Being called gay, that type of thing...

    ^ Pretty much the same as me. People aren't shocked because they don't know.

    Gee thanks. But try expailing to them they are missing out on something. I dare you...wear a protective mask or earplugs though. Of course there are people you would tell, but generally you would want to keep it quiet at my school.

    Like I said, its maybe that they think since kids watch it and read it, they find its for kids, but thats the unrefined way of thinking. But if I had to Id gladly add a Pikachu gem accesory on my purse and go out in public :D

    hahah for halloween this year i plan on either going as drifloon or dawn. and for the drifloon costume i thought of a very cute design :)
     
  15. Only my friends know it. I'm smart enough not to tell everyone about it.
    But even if I did, they wouldn't annoy me much about it. Almost everyone knows that they don't want to see me angry.

    I aim for the throat.

    Personally, I kept my liking for Pokémon a secret during my school days.

    I've only told a select few of my friends that I like Pokémon; they were like "meh, whatever".

    i often tell it but nobody seems to be shocked or annoying about it, i'm widely known as a gamer who prefers to play most games from any console, right now i might play pokemon but two hours later i might be killing people with guns on call of duty online.

    besides when you have a good look at the mariogames it looks pretty childish as well, this whole pokemon is kiddy thing is just something that's between the ears.
