    I watch and play. Pokemon Advance is actually playing the episodes that go with ORAS. It's a real treat to do booth :)

    I only watch Pokémon. I banned myself from playing the game because I ended spending to much time on it.

    I had a level 52 Venasuar in pallet town. I sucked at the game, but I was hooked, man.

    I just play it, and now a days only the main series games. Used to watch the anime as a kid, but kind of 'outgrew' it. Also used to play the TCG, but stopped that around the same time I stopped watching the anime.
  5. I mostly just play the games. I watch an episode or two here and there, sure, but not as much as I used to. I have days when I just want to re-watch the older episodes or a movie here and there, so I guess that also counts as watching it since I usually do it when I feel like it.

    I guess it's both for me.

    I play the games since they air the anime on cartoon network which I don't have on my TV but I watch the movies.

    I play the games and watch the anime; I've been doing both around 1999 or so.
  8. This, basically.

    Though, for me it's because I don't really like the anime anymore. Sometimes I'll watch an episode and post in the anime forum, but it's not often. I've long since gotten to the point where I stopped caring about the show. I enjoy the games though.
  9. I do both.

    I've been able to keep up with the show since I started watching it online.
  10. Play it, I stopped caring about the anime after Ash got his Jet badge, but I've been keeping up with what's been going on through my sister who still cares about it.

    I put a lot of time into the games, and I used to watch the anime, but I don't like the pacing, so I just watch episodes with significant events like evolutions, gym battles, and Pokemon League battles after they've been put online.

    Actually I watch, play, and read the Manga. Mainly because I love Pokemon that much and I really like what Pokemon has to offer no matter what it is.

    I just play the games. Used to watch the Anime when I was younger but stopped watching it for various reasons. I don't believe the Anime is bad, I just don't have any interest in it nowadays. As for the Pokemon Mangas, I have not read any of them but I have considered giving some of them a try to see how good they are.

    I haven't watched the show in years.

    I just play the games now.
  17. In that case...

    I also read the mangas, but I only read the ones based on the movies these days.

    I do both, in fact I watch the Pokémon anime every week.

    I'm just glad that Ash isn't an idiot anymore. He sure has become smarter in X/Y. In fact I can't remember the last time he's done something incredibly stupid.

    As for the games, well, I love how you can battle Pokémon in so many different ways.

    But there are two aspects of Pokémon I don't care for at all.

    I hate the Pokémon TCG game as I need so many darn cards to play properly. And honestly that's not my idea of fun. I do enjoy however card games of regular cards. Like go fish. That's some of my favorites. (I'm referring to with regular cards, not special fish cards.)

    As for Pokémon toys, well, I feel I have overgrown those. Not saying that people who do like collecting toys are immature or anything, but yeah I don't like toys that much.

    As for the mangas, they are hardcore and dark I will admit that. But I can't get into them since they're in black and white. I mean come on, why can't it be in color? It's a minor problem, but the fact is I'd be reading the mangas much more if it wasn't for that.

    I watch and play though I haven't played as much since ORAS came out. Anime I try to keep up w because I have a bad habit of slipping and then I end up having to marathon. Its not bad but considering I try to keep up w other anime when it debuts I should put that much work into pokemon. Now the only question is which pokemon game do i want to replay
