    Are you ever "embarrassed" to play Pokémon?

    Just what the title says. Personly i am somewhat embarrassed about it. I mean i'm only 12 but that's still a little old. But hey its a great game so i'll keep playing.

    Yes, when everyone is talking about god of war or whatever, then i mention pokemon they get really quiet and i know they aren't interested and then i feel embaressed, and the only guy i know that likes it is hooked on the cards and doesn't know anything......

    Did you know Inanimate Franchises can have relationships? Word at my school is Pokémon is gay. I have a feeling CoD is too gay.

    Anyway, yeah I am. There's about 4 people in my school beside me who I can freely talk about Pokémon to without other people around. I don't bring my iPhone to school since I have a Pokédex App on it and even though it's hidden, people can find it so, I'm not bringing my iPhone evenif it has a code lock.

    20 years old, never miss a chance to make a Pokemon reference. Yeah, I'm fairly comfortable about it. I do feel embarrassed though when some small fry tries to make it sound like he knows more than I do and I have to put him in his place. Seriously, you don't have to attempt to let me in on every single detail you know; odds are I've looked it up months ago.

    That's me too. It's just a game -- and I have fun playing it :). It shouldn't matter the age in the end. It's just that you're enjoying playing it that really matters, no matter the game.

    No, I even wear pokemon t-shirts.
    Pokemon will never embarrass me!

    ^^^ I completely agree. It IS just a game after all. They obviously have nothing better to do with their lives if they tease you over it.

    They're upset that they're to embarrassed to play pokemon themselves.

    Not really, especially when I'm surrounded by random strangers that sees me playing it and I'm not affected whenever someone makes fun of me, anyway...

    Well I'm 18 and I play pokemon, I won't lie when I go for the TRU or Game Stop events I feel sort of nervous being the only one standing around downloading my pokemon, I think that has more to do with feeling awkward because I'm the only one there more than it being because it's Pokemon.

    Other than that I've never been embarrassed about liking pokemon. A good number of my gamer friends will groan if I make a reference to pokemon, but they aren't mean about it. The rest are fans of pokemon or don't care one way or the other. My parents are also fine with it.

    17 and play it whenever I can.

    Why would I be embarrassed? I play Pokemon rather than doing something destructive.

    But what if that hot babe standing next to you was a huge pokemon fan too? Then she'd be all over you. ;) Just saying there ARE female pokemon fans too.
  16. Not me. I am 22 and have been playing pokemon since gen 1 and haven't ever been embarrassed to play it. Why would anyone be? It's just a game like any other...

    Psh no. My school's really tiny (like, so tiny 7th-12th grade is in the same classroom. Yeah, its a private school) so even all the high schoolers who I am great friends with like Pokemon, so usually its not a problem for me. Besides, if someone starts to make fun of me for playing Pokemon, my older brother will step in (cuz he plays SoulSilver) and defend me (or, at least defend Pokemon.)

    Little bit, but the only game my friend really plays is World of Warcraft so he isn't one to talk about addictive pointless games :p

    I'm the same as Mew-100 except I was too scared someone would see the pokedex app on my phone. So yeah, whenever I have a friend over, I take all my guide books, gameboy, games, etc, and push them underneath my book shelf. Only one of my friends plays pokemon, but we don't really talk about it or anything. My *cooler* friends make jokes and stuff about pokemon, and I say its all nerdy and stuff, but yeah. If anyone saw me playing pokemon, they'd be like "Dude, srsly?"

    BTW I'm 13. Just if anyone was curious.

    No, people know I like Pokemon and they don't mind. Quite a few people play at my school, too. Although I am slightly embarrased about how much I played it, but nothing serious since I bring Platinum to school everyday.
