Before I realized there are fans older than me, yes I was embarrassed of it.
Now I really don't care. But I never tell unless somebody asks me.

The way I see it, the people who rudely critique someone display juvenile behavior to begin with. Do you really think that person is qualified to lecture someone one maturity?
Not really. A lot of people at my school play it. Even my chemistry teacher. She connects walkers with students all the time.
Not particularly, but I'd only discuss Pokemon if someone asks me.
I claimed Giratina.
Level me up, please!
I'm not really embarrassed about it. But I choose carefully which of my friends should know about it.
And a Happy New Year.
Well, i'm 23 and i love Pokémon since Red came out. I have a friend that is almost 23 years old and he plays Platinum. We trade and battle sometimes. So i'm not embarrassed about it.
A bit but I don't really care anymore
I am bit of embarrased, actually afraid to play in front of others.. especially before my mom, she makes fun of it cuz she tells it as the "jumping thing game" [i think she saw when i am playing pokemon HG, and she must have noticed that scene of lyra's marill jumping].. sometimes she scolds me for me playing kids' game.. but i dont care basically..

Well I'm 15 years old and have played pokémon basicly all my live. since the day pokémon red came out i've played all the games there have been of pokémon.
And even my mother playes it sometimes and she's 43 but I'm a bit scared to play it in front of others from my class.
dude, your not too old, I know plenty of teenagers at my school who are OBSESSED with Pokemon, heck I even know plenty of Adults who love the series, you shouldnt be embarrased of liking something JUST because your 'too old' to be honest, I know a couple of girls at my high school who still watch Dora the Explorer and arent afraid to admit it XD
so just play what you want, if people are troubling you, just ignore them

Ashamed? Please. I'm 16 and for an art project I painted Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise.
Never have, never will be!
I'm friends with all the pokemon friends at my school, and I'm almost 16!

if i would even say the word pokemon in my sdhool,i would have no friends ...=( but i like it,so i aint gonna stop playing it.
but,i would love to have some friends to talk about pokemon with..
Currently working on a new sig. Come back for it later.
Pokemon is essentially MY WHOLE LIFE. Without Pokemon I couldn't even exist. Seriously. So I'm not at all embarrassed.

No, not Jill sandviches. Sorry.
My scroll in Dragon Cave. Go and click my babies, will ya?
I have officially claimed Yanma.
GYHAHAHAHAHAHA! Bryan Fury is MINE!
I have noticed that once you reach a certain age, and especially if you go to college, Pokemon becomes cool again. Heck, it becomes even cooler than it was when it was big.
Case in point. Sometime during last semester, someone used chalk to draw an awesome Red Gyarados on one of the pillars of the art building. It was so much win.
I got a DS and SS because my roommate next semester got a DS and HG.
Plus, there could be worse things to like... like Twilight. *shudders at the fail*
Lol it's kinda good when your bigger than everyone and they're afraid of you even when your sitting there playing pokemon :P
Just to share, I actually met one of my best friend 5 years ago when we were still playing Sapphire/Ruby. I was working then, traveling to a specialized Computer Shopping Centre to buy some computers for my company. That's when I met this guys playing his ruby his GBA while watching his friend playing the shop XBOX console. I was 18yrs old that time, he was 3 years younger than me)
We exchanged a battle and phone number and kept in contact till now. Without pokemon, we might never know either other at all. (I lost terribly to his Speed Boost + Sword Dance + Baton Pass) <- U know what pokemon was that~~!!

I'm not embarrassed. No one really says anything about it. Like in lunch when everybody's around, I'll pull out my DS and they'll say "what're you playing?" and I'll tell 'em, "Pokemon". "oh, ok, so anyway..." If they don't care, I don't care.

Up until about a year ago, when I got Platinum, I played only in the shadows. Now, I don't really care about playing HG or Pt out in the open. Heck, I'm pretty sure that I even brought my pokewalker to prom out of habit.

I'm 18-years-old and I play/watch/draw Pokémon like a religion.
Like most of you, I, too, take my Pokéwalker everywhere I go.
I'm in college now, mind you.
Sure, I may get some baffled looks or some snickering, but I honestly could care less.
My boyfriend's the same way.
We've both been playing Pokémon since day one and because of it,
our relationship couldn't be better!
Lol so in a way, Pokémon brings people closer.
Don't be ashamed, guys!

I am a little bit. I'm a girl, I'm 18, and standing on the line on the 10th anniversary (I think I was 15 or 16 back then) to choose some Pokemon while most people around me where boys around 10 year old was a really awkward experience! X-P
But I won't quit. It's an awesome video game, and I'm playing since generation I! I actually grew up with Pokemon! :-)
Plus, I won't have any shyness issueanymore, since you can download the event pokemon and trade or battle wirelessly. Generation IV solved this problem ^^
