    A little bit. It is kind of childish, but it's not like Pokemon is my life or I ignore adult responsibilities. Sometimes having a bit of kid left in you is a good thing.

    Well, yes. Yes I am.

    I know I'm not manly enough for you folks, but where I live, ingenuity is frowned upon. Thank god I can doodle Fakemon without the schmoes at my school knowing what the hell they are.

    Haha nah. I'm 18, go to college, and spend a TON of time playing Pokemon haha. I talk about it with everyone! I've had so many good Pokemon conversations throughout the years. My friends in high school gave everyone Pokemon nicknames that are still brought up today, my friends in college practically assaulted me with happy texts when Black and White were introduced. My best friends play Pokemon too, and they're a year older than me. Actually, when my boy bought SS, and the guy at the register asked if he needed a Pokemon guide, my friend laughedm pointed to me, and said "he's my Pokemon guide."

    I go to an extremely good college, have a social life, and carry my busted up DS Lite everywhere I go. I take care of my responsibilities and have my childlike fun too. Why be embarassed about who you are, about what you do or how you enjoy yourself?

    Pokemon has been my icebreaker so many times, since Gen I. So I don't think I'm going to spend time being embarassed now haha!

    Yes. It is the most embarrassing thing ever. Nearly everyone at my school believes me to be gay. Worse, there's actually a gay person in my class, and he thinks I'm gay too.

    I only know three other people that play Pokemon at my school: one is retarded, one keeps it secret, and the third one is insulted even more than me.

    I'm 13, by the way.

    You should play what you want and not care what they think. Why should their opinion matter? They're obviously the immature type who pins the word gay to anything they consider stupid. And why should it matter if a gay guy thinks your gay? Just be proud of your interests and show that you don't care what they think, rather than feeding the fuel by being offended by their insults.

    no.

    seems like half of the guys i've spoken to in my school still play pokemon. and a lot of them are popular cool dazzling sparkly kids too. when i start playing my ds in class or something people go "oh are you playing pokemon?! that's the best game ever!"

    hell there was this one kid in my math class who dedicated his math project to pokemon-- it was a survey about pokemon. this was what, a week ago?

    it seems like a lot of my schoolmates are only open about it since the announcement of hgss, though. 2nd gen bias, my favorite kind of bias. because a lot of people still like to think that gsc are the best, myself included. so it's cool if you like hgss.

    i'm in highschool by the way. idk the ages of everyone i talk to, but they're all at least 14, except for the rare grade hopper, if any.

    but yeah it seems like elsewhere, people still make fun of you if you like pokemon. hah! sucks. i like my school. i like my city, too.

    Not anymore more, before I was in the 11th grade I was scared to let anyone know but after something happened in 11th grade I couldn't be bothered caring anymore and decided that what I like is none of anyone's business and if they got a problem with it then they can stick where the sun doesn't shine, as I said it's none of their business.

    Somewhat, yeah. I mean, of course my close friends know it, and also the people that I have met over the interwebz (Even met a couple of them IRL). But my classmates? Yes, I am embarrassed in front of them. Where I live, playing Pokémon is incredibly frowned upon.

    Except when it's on an emulator, for some reason. Some people play it on an emulator. But if you pay for it, you are a nerd. Not that I am not that already, but I just figure that it's easier just to avoid the topic. I do, however, think that one of my friends in class knows. Mostly because I have visited Pokémon websites during class (Procrastinating FTW!) and I have only made very vague attempts at hiding my activities.

    Heck, I don't even think most people would care all that much if I told them by now. But, meh. It's easier just to avoid the topic entirely, and I am a coward in that sense.

    I always used to be a bit embarrassed, but not much anymore. I own tons of games, which I would play before school started. I'd get asked what I was playing, and when I answered Pokemon, usually they just nodded and went off doing whatever.

    I own 6 Pikachu/Pokemon t-shirts, so my grade is used to my obsession. I'm going into high school this fall, and I've heard they're even more accepting of it there. (My friends say that sometimes they play the original theme song on the announcements. XD)

    So if I'm around strangers and I'm playing Pokemon, maybe I'm a little embarrassed. But I find it too awesome to care what others say. And I know I'd wipe the floor with them in battles anyway. :P

    Not really, most people don't care [though everyone aside the people that play hate the newer generations, but whatever]. There are like... four people in the entire school that actually bag on people for playing, but considering them making fun of me would cause my anger to release itself in the form of violence towards the people that caused that to happen... I don't think I have anything to worry about.

    I used to be, but at my old high school the games are making a bit of a comeback lol I may be a bit nervous to tell someone that i play the games (Which is the only thing I like about Pokemon ) but to back it up I let them know that i have a life, besides...they see me rollin', they hatin' XD

    I used to be majorly, I would give my friend the death stare on the bus if he ever spoke of battling in public. But since the remakes came out my high school has been loaded with poke-geeks, so I guess not anymore. I mean, I don't show the fact around in public, but I don't cut myself whenever I get caught with a colored cartridge in my DS.

    I used to be afraid that people would find out that i play pokemon, but now that I found out about other people at my school who play it, i feel comfortable with playing it and not caring who finds out.

    Seriously guys, I'm 25 and I've been playing pokemon since I was 12. There's no way anyone should ever be embarrassed about doing something they like.

    There is two kinds of people in the world:

    -People who like Pokemon

    -People who pretend to not like Pokemon

    I've never been embarrassed about playing Pokemon! From the day I first got my hands on Pokemon Red back in '96 till currently when my wife shakes her head at me for having multiple tabs opened with Pokemon info, I've always held my head up high lol. It's a competitive RPG, how can you NOT want to play it?

    I must admit, the thought of people harrassing you over a video game sounds ridiculous, but it is a real thing. I am a person who is selfconscious because I come from a small town where people are narrow minded. It doesn't help I was a big athelete. Qb and Pitcher. Even played in college. The thought of my teammates disvovering my Poke fever is a serious.
