yes I am new and I am an adult Pokemon player.:025n172:
Yes there are many out there. My purpose for being here is if there are any here at Serebi.net and make friends with them, thus exchange codes and such.

This is how it started:
I became a player back in 1998, at the time I worked at a hospital, when I was given the graveyard shift (11:00pm till 7:30AM) to work twice a month, nothing kept me awake, not even coffee.
Pokemon Yellow came out in those days and I reserved a GBC bundle I saw in a TV commercial at my local Toys R US.
I started playing Pokemon Yellow around 2:30AM when no patients came and I had all my work done. It kept my attention and alertness better than any cup of coffee, and I was still awake in the morning.
Since then it all has snowballed from there: video games,once I thought were a waste of time, have become my hobby. I own several gaming systems and games including imports. But Pokemon was what got me into it and I'm quite fond of the game. I even own a small collection of Pokemon mini plushies;munchlax;;174; and have watched the anime show in its dreadful English version over the years.

I was given a Wii this year as a present from other adult gamer friends, but sadly they're not into Pokemon, so I cannot play PBR with any of them... :(
I'm not really a hardcore know it all gamer, I take this just as a my hobby, so so easy on me. Oh and I'm old, how old? Old enough to be the father of many members here.

Thanks everyone. What else I can say about myself gamewise?

My other games include Animal Crossing WildWorld and CityFolk and also enjoy the Harvest Moon series, just bought an used Tree Of Tranquility last week.
The irony is that I bought my DS Lite to play Pokemon Diamond, but it was a few months before I came out so I bought it with ACWW, and now I'm like addicted to it. I've played it every day since then!!!! To my surprise many adults including other men like me enjoy it in both the DS and Wii versions.
Anyways, I cannot wait till Pokemon Heart Of Gold and SilverSoul arrive next year! I'm still debating which I should get? Because I have to be realistic and unlike previous games I am only going to buy one (financial reasons, don't ask... :() Any suggestions please? Thanks. ;)

Welcome to the forums, guy who's almost a decade older than me. I'm twelve and... I'm currently not that adult friend you've been searching for although I do know some people who meets your criteria. I'll post them here later perhaps.
