    Really everything Kutie Pie said in her first post about general age when joining and behavior when still a noob. I actually don't feel like I'm too old for this site. I don't know why I keep coming here either when all I do is lurk around and post mostly in the Christian and Avatar clubs. /ovgd/ and Misc. have those moments when I'll be a fairly regular poster. I just don't know. I have noticed that I've been visiting less frequently over the past few months, but I doubt I'll flat out stop coming here for a few more years. I also doubt I'll ever stop liking Pokemon. There may come a time when I just stop playing the games, but stop liking the franchise? Yeah right.

    I was at high school when I first signed up (I've finished college now), but forgot all about it for a few years before becoming active. The birthday emails reminded me of this account.

    ... and despite perhaps being too old, Pokemon has become so much of my life that it'd be a shame to give it up now. I feel like I'd be throwing away half of my life if I did.

    I'm in my fourth year of college/university and started coming here in, um... late seventh grade? Yeah okay that's enough statistics.

    I'm with you -- I'm surprised too.

    I've been told numerous times by Mom I'm too old for Pokémon, but as she hasn't nagged me about it in months, looks like she gave up, so my love for Pokémon is still going on strong. So... here I am... posting away minutes before my bedtime... wondering what else to do.

    ...

    Yup.
    What a bunch of controlling horseshit, being "too old for" a hobby. A behavior, maybe, but not a hobby.

    I joined this forum when I was starting my junior year of high school, and now I'm a junior in college (time sure does fly). 21 years old now, and yet around most of the people I hang out with, my mentality is that of a 16 year old. It feels as though I'm getting to old for pokemon, but I'm surrounded by people my age and older who are still into it, so it makes it perfectly ok lol. And besides, I've been into pokemon since I was like 7 or 8. It'd kinda be hard to break out of that habit now xD

    I wanna say I think I finally grew out of these forums, seeing as I haven't posted anything in 5 months. It hasn't even occurred to me to check back here until today (and that's only because I only have to wait a little over a week to change the horrible spelling mistake I made in my username).

    I know I'm definitely not "too old" for Pokemon, and I probably won't outgrow it for a long time. I'm only 20, and I don't think that's too old to be on the forums either - at least in the subforums that I frequented. My departure has less to do with age and more to do with...just not enjoying the overall environment of the forums?

    In fact, this thread is making me feel young, haha.

    I'm 24 and married; I seem to go by the principle that as long as there's still someone older than me doing it, I won't feel weird about it.

    Part of it might also be the absence of the social stigma that existed in Jr. High/High School. I completely forgot about pokemon during those years until recently.

    I only felt I was 'too old' for Pokemon forums when I felt I was 'too girly' for them (long story I rather not get into. it's complicated.).

    But 'girliness' is a lie in my mind now. Maybe, to justify that, i'll also mension I have autism. I mean, that could explain a lot to why i'm still even interested in Pokemon to begin with.

    But anyways. I don't plan on dropping Pokemon or Pokemon forums anytime soon. It entertain's me and keep's me generally satisfied. Thats all that I need to know.

    Aspie or not, though. There's so much I just don't understand...

    I joined in my first year of high school and now I'm in my first year of college (which is not university). I'm only 16 so I don't feel too old but I only really come here for the community and the people I enjoy talking to nowadays. I still love Pokémon but I don't really have the time to keep up with it, play it, watch the anime etc. etc. One day I hope I will regain my interest again.
    nothing lasts forever, but this is getting good now.

    I felt I was too old for these forums when I first joined (guess that's why I left). Funny how that changed as I became more mature. I don't think I'm too old to be anywhere I frequently go to now. Same goes for the games I play, shows I watch, etc. Doesn't mean I don't feel old from time to time, but I'd say that's more or less normal. For me anyway.

    I feel the same exact way.

    Conveniently enough I'm 23. Thank you for that.

    I joined here in early 2008 when I was 14, but didn't become active until late 2009 because of lack of Internet connection. Followed by inactivity for all of 2010 and the first half of 2011, you have yourself one Rezzo.

    Now I'm here, 5 years older in 2012, and I didn't honestly see myself still interested in being on a Pokemon forum even though I don't like the games anywhere near as much as I used to. I guess I'm not that old compared to some users around here, but it just goes to say.

    Also I posted before Malanu, where's my award

    I don't see what's so surprising about Jb's age. Heck, I'm about the same age as him and have. As for me, I've been coming here since I started high school when I stumbled upon this site the main site when looking for Pokemon news that summer.

    I more so appreciate the idea of Pokemon, than play the games anymore. If anything, I collect and respect.

    I never felt to old for anything. I like what I like besides liking Pokemon at 16 is pretty common right?

    I see a lot of 16 year olds on Pokemon forums (this one included) all the time.



    And all the BIGGER pokemon fans I met in my town were all adults. One watched the anime EVERY SATERDAY!!! and she was over 30.



    Her favorite pokemon was also Skitty ^_^ And her favorite person was Brock, I think. Or May. I don't really remember, one of those 2...

    And a guy from my group loved team rocket AND CHARIZARD AND POSSABLY PRIMATE TOO....

    Age is all in the mind, really.

    Not really. Most sixteen year olds these days are more into Call of Duty, Sports, Jersey Shore, etc.

    Your school has its own Pokemon League? I'm jealous.

    I am too old to be on some kiddy Pokemon forum.

    I should be watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic like normal guys my age.

    Hoenn has disappointed.

    P.S. I get tired of complaints from great games.
