    Question Playing pokemon - How old are you?

    Hello everyone,

    One of the things I heard very often is "Pokemon is only for 8 year olds". Then again, there seem to be a lot of assumptions with regards to the age of the pokemon player base.

    Research time!
    I'm quite interested to see what the player base (age) is actually like, so I'd like to propose to do a poll where you vote for your age category. Simple, no?

    Note: I do understand that not everybody who plays pokemon visits serebii, but seeing the amount of users here; I think it would still give a rather 'clear' presentation of the player base.

    Greetings,
    Blizzardy

    * For 'safety reasons' I will not include an 'under 10' age group.

    The poll options are ridiculous lol, why not stuff like "10-15" and "15-20"? they would make it more acurate.

    Well like I said in the OP; for safety reasons. As I made the poll I was not sure whether it would display usernames for each vote.
    I agree it would make it more acurate, but you kinda have to be careful on the internet, hence I made it under 20, so it's not clear if you're 19 or 9 years old for example.

    16, son. Although at my college there's a whole club where pretty much everyone plays Nintendo, and it's usually Pokémon.

    Heh, about to turn 16. I started playing when FireRed first came out when I was 8. I haven lost interest since and hopefully never will.

    I'm 12. I started playing (or more like watching, since I started with the anime) in 2008 or something.

    Given the general maturity levels found on SPPf, I was pleasantly surprised to find that no one had voted "50+" for entertainment (I use the word very lightly indeed) purposes. Good job everyone.

    I'm fifteen.

    Malanu's probably the oldest member on here... maybe.

    Anyhoo, I'm 20. Been playing Pokémon since I was eight when everyone was getting into Pokémon. I still love it, of course, helps that there's a lot of nerds here at college who still play Pokémon openly. Makes college much more welcome than high school.
