    Never been told that I'm too old, but I've got the it's an "illegal undergound animal fighting game" defense.
    You know your name better than I do. YAY!

    I'll usually examine them closely. 9 times out of 10 they have some article of clothing or tattoo that make for an easy retort.

    (I just tackle them and make them bleed.)

    I just look them in the eye and say what they're too young for.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I do, too.

    Nobody's actually said it to me, but I'd just say it's rated E for everyone for a reason.

    If
    Look at this (insulting name) playing Pokémon. Nice Venasaur! What are you, five?
    Then

    Look at this guy who correctly identified a Venasaur! I'm suprised you could recover a childhood memory after so many years of trying too hard to be mature.

    You don't tell me what to do. I am entitled to my own liking and such.

    Well I'd just say to them "If I enjoy a game why shouldn't I play it?" it makes sense really, I started playing when I was a child and childhood was the best time of my life, why can't I cling on to that?

    I don't think anyone has ever said that to me before.
    My parents know I play/like it, they don't care.
    There's probably some people at work that know I play/like it and they don't really care, either.

    3. Yeah and priest arent doing things that seem wrong either.(For religious nuts.)

    4.Well your going to die soon youd think youd be more worried about that than me playing a game.(for older folks.....probably my favorite.)

    I don't watch the show, that's for kids and Pokemon has lasted more then 10 years so its not a fad. Then I when I talk about Pokemon I have confidence in my voice if there's confidence in your voice then all they have is their thoughts.

    First, I say "Yes, I am. So?"
    Then, if they continue, I start ranting on and on about how complex the games actually are and competitive pokemon and stuff. I make sure to use a whole bunch of terms they can't make sense of.
    Lastly, I say that I will unleash my lv 100 EVd Blaziken on them and kill them.

    Also, I mention that I only play the games, I could not give any less of a crap about the TCG and anime.

    I tell them that they're too young to understand maturity.

    I quietly save my game and shut the system off, very slowly. I then look them in the eye and give them my biggest, goofiest smile until they break eye contact. Then I go back to playing.

    Usually I ignore them. But if they were really being a jerk about it, I would probably stand my ground.

    Unless they're complete douches, in which case nobody likes them, no one really gives a flying crap if you play Pokemon here or not.

    You guys must live in those weird neighborhoods where kids throw each other into trashcans, gossip about the hottest kids in school that really look no different than your average person, and come up with retarded insults like they do on TV (aka the stereotypical "white" school).

    I say "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnd?" or "ssssssssoooooooooooooooooo?" then go back to whatever I was doing. But the headbutt option is a good one.

    When some says something like that depending on who it is i'll most likely say F***k you or completly ignore them.

    If you want to play Pokemon, then play Pokemon. You shouldn't make other people's opinions a priority of your life, unless it's urgent. Pokemon's your pastime.

    Cussing at them won't do those people any justice. Be responsible and just say nicely that you're not too old and that you want to play Pokemon!

    I generally just say "I'm sorry that you let other people tell you when you're too old to enjoy things you like."

    And if they're rude about it, "I'm sorry that you let other people tell you when you're too old to enjoy things you like, but if you're trying to tell me what to do go choke on a big one."

    "So?"
    If the person is particularily rude about it (which is unlikely because I don't play my DS in public), I'd politely ask him/her to mind his/her own business and indulge in his/her own nostalgic hobby.

    Hasn't been said to me, really.

    I'm in college and the people who have DS's play it. In fact, there's this guy several years older than me and he just bought a 3DS and was telling me yesterday that he's planning on buying one of the 5th generation games. He's barely played any of the other games.

    However, if it was said to me I likely wouldn't care too much. It's a video game, and I have a tendency to think that the more mature of us enjoy what we want to enjoy instead of trying to force ourselves to dislike something that we like just to act "older". Really, only the most immature of people actually care. People still stuck in that preteen "I'm so mature!!!" phase.

    "Eh; whatever"

    The only people who have ever said that to me though were World-Class douches, and 1 rugby bro. I can tolerate the rugby bro at times though, although if he does throw a random quip about me liking Pokemon I'll just deflect it.
