    Default are you getting too old for pokemon diamond/pearl?

    The original pokemon games were released in english just under 10 years ago, and many fans of pokemon are fans because of this 10 year old game, do you ever think you are becoming too old to like pokemon?

    Not much discussion here, but it does make you think.
    I am beginning to grow too old for the Pokemon franchise, but I'm gonna go ahead and enjoy it before that day comes.

    yes I agree, I used to watch the tv show and play the card game but now I just buy the games, which I always enjoy but to be honest I wouldnt readily admit to my friends that I love playing Pokemon games. 7 years ago all my friends played the games and collected the cards, etc and now its the opposite.

    I don't think so. The only thing that gives the game its childish image is the pokemon that nintendo chooses to showcase most often. Really, it is a game of strategy.

    You are never too old to enjoy something. If you ditch something because everyone thinks it's kiddy, then IMO what was the point of you ever playing Pokemon?

    onthepunt, same here. but now, only ONE of my friends still enjoys the games.

    I might enjoy the manga if i had more volumes, i hate the anime and the toys. I enjoy the games (only the main RPGs) because to me they just are canical. (bad splr)

    Haha, YES of course I am, but does that bother me? Course not. I just hide the stuff from all my friends of course. The only person I play the games with is my friend's 10-year old brother. So long as my friends don't find out I don't care. Oh yeah and there's a girl 2 years older than me who plays them sortof but she doesn't really play seriously. Plus I wouldn't tell her I play.

    EV training
    The new Attack/Special Attack deal
    Having to choose 4 moves strategically based on what your stats are, base power, accuracy, and PP
    Having to choose 6 Pokemon based on careful study of stats and movepools.

    Yeah, I'm too old for Pokemon. It's a childish game that's easy to learn and easy to master. There's no required intellect that only teens and adults use.

    No way. I'm 20, and I will be 21 on December 12th. If my mom isn't too old for Pokemon (She's 53. She likes the anime, but doesn't play the games because she's not good at them), then I sure am not.

    Just because a game is kiddy and rated E doesn't mean that you're too old for it. Many older gamers play the Mario games and other games like that as well because they are fun.

    Nahh... I'm twenty, and I'm not really worried about letting people know that I play, either. (I mean, I'm not going to use "hey I play Pokemon!" as a conversation starter, but I won't be humiliated beyond all belief if someone just happens to see a Pokemon battle on my DS screen.) Though it is rather unnerving that I can only discuss stuff with my ten-year-old brother.

    Oh, and can't forget being idolized by nine-year-olds at the camp I work at. Yeahhh... that was kind of annoying.

    Only a couple of people I know play and they know that they play but other people my age don't seem to play as much anymore, I on the other hand love the games but I don't watch the tv show or collect the cards.

    I just turned 18 in April, and still love the games. I don't watch the anime not because it's Pokemon, but because I don't really have the time, and the anime just sorta got old. The cards I don't play anymore either, but that's because it was driving my parents crazy moneywise. But I'll always love the games and cards.

    heehee... you're as young as you feel... If I felt it was to kiddy for me, I wouldn't be here right? I'm not afraid to say hey I like Silent Hill, and pokemon as well.
