    I just turned 18 a few days ago and I've played all the generations (in order), but I think I started after gen 2 was out. Not positive though. And I'm thoroughly astonished at the huge number of people over the age of 21 (being as I always considered myself a far outlier on age of playing pokemon) who love to play pokemon over the internet (as in I find them over the internet, not just here or even on this forum but on other sites as well). All 117 (that answered the poll here) of you rock! It's really awesome, just wish I could actually meet some of them/you since it seems almost impossible. Still, that said, I find it very hard to believe that the 5 people who answered "50+" are telling the truth. If it was you and you wish to object, though, feel free to give me a convincing rant or whatnot lol.

    I have 2 Friend codes I use about equally. One is 4055-3723-1345 and the other is 0576 3520 6954. I'll try to mention which one to look for when needed, if I don't then ask.

    I try to train pokemon with the best natures and IVs, but generally don't breed for IVs and occasionally use a pokemon that could have a better nature out of laziness (on the other hand I have reset or recaught the same species 20+ times to get the best nature and decent IVs sometimes). I somewhat do EV training, but don't calculate it out so it's perfect, just rely on the chart in the super training thing.

    I'm 21 and have played since gen 1 (Special Pickachu Edition for the win). If I ever outgrow these games (...unlikely) I have two nephews that will see the pokemon way of life when they get older, lol.

    19, and one of the, if not, the, biggest Pokémon fan in Bangladesh.
    'Pokémon is for kids'. Oh I get that so much. Then I introduce them to the games and the manga and they start loving it as much as I do. <3

    *Looks at the poll results*
    I wonder exactly how many here are 50+ years old. :P

    I don't think this poll is near accurate, as younger kids will be far less likely to spend time on a site like Serebii then a teenage or adult.

    But anyway, 15.

    Well, I'm 24, and I've been a Pokemon fan since I was 11... HOLY ****, I've been a Pokemon fan over half my life! I still remember when I first heard about Pokemon and started collecting the trading cards, and then a year later played Pokemon Yellow... But yeah, I bet there are a lot of twenty-somethings out there who have been riding the Pokemon wave since it all began.

    ...Well on the other hand, I know a lot of twenty-something Pokemon fans who are Genwunners or (more likely) Gentwoers, and stopped following the Pokemon world after that. You won't believe how often I've been asked "Who's Chandelure?" or even "Who's Medicham?" by these people. God forbid when I start talking about Xerneas.

    I'm 23 this year, I can't remember when it was but I started playing as soon as the game was available over here. I can vaguely remember seeing Red in the shop and thinking 'ooh, red dragon. I like those'. Or something to that effect...

    Pretty much all my friends back then were playing it too, and it was just one of those things that everyone did when they were that age. Must have been about 8 or something, right?

    Been playing ever since, I don't think anyone around me is interested in it so much anymore, especially not the actual games anyway.

    11. Younger than lots of people here. Introduced to Pokemon when I got a cassette with season 1 of the anime (5 or 6)...then someone gave me their Blue and Game Boy, and it stuck with me.

    I'm turning 20 this year in June, and I've been playing pokemon since I was 5 Red/Blue FTW!
    I watched the anime from the beginning up till the start of Johto, that's when I just couldn't stand it anymore but I'll never get tired of the games

    18. Played and collected cards since I was five, but I quit collecting when I turned around 8-ish.
    I still remember when those BK cards came out, the metal, gold plated type things? I still have a Poliwhirl and a Togepi from when that was going on.

    I'm 21. It might just be that I have a thing for cartoon monsters and anthropomorphic characters, but I will probably not stop being a Pokemon fan any time soon.


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    You're asking a forum filled with 20+ year old Aspies to disprove your "only 8-year-olds play Pokemon" theory?

    Wow, I haven't laughed so ****ing hard in ages. Thanks for that.
