    I had two friends that I always battled and traded with.. I also met someone in public with a DS and Pokemon game, which is how I got some trade only evolutions.

    Pokemon is still very much alive for my School actually. almost every Yu-gi-oh player i know plays pokemon casually, or competitively. we even have our own Pokemon club where we battle competitively and play the TCG.

    Sadly, I was apart of a group of people that once played the games. Now that group is all but extinct. They were like me and grew up watching the original series in the 90's but then it dawned on them that it was just a game and stopped playing. Im the only one who has kept on playing and buying the games and watching the series. Im glad that im a pokemon fan, i'll never stop buying and playing the games.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one in my area. If I ever find some who do, It's usually very basic and introductory.

    Of course, there are more Pokemon fans in India, but I do not know any Pokemon fan living near me.

    I just hung out with a bunch of friends, all at various stages of uni/post uni, and played some B2W2 entralink missions with them. =p

    There were people in my high school who played Pokemon and certainly a good number to be found at my uni too.

    I'm currently the only one in my area, but I will probably introduce some of my friends to Pokemon.

    Quite a few. We have mini trading/battling sessions during breaktimes between classes, just because we're that cool

    A rare few. But they weren't into it nearly as much as me. And now I'm moving in a week or two to another country so yeah that's not really gonna change much.

    I used have a friend in high school who I'd talk to about Pokemon.
    He asked me to battle many times (the reason I didn't was down to my inability to defeat the E4 in D/P).
    Some time after high school, he suddenly became less interested in the recent games, and more so in just battling competitively on simulators.
    Nowadays, I understand he shuns anything that isn't Gen I-III, as he finds that Pokemon turned into a broken mess post-Gen III.
    I don't resent him for that. In fact, I do see where he's coming from, what with Stealth Rock rendering many Pokemon nigh-unusable, and Shell Smash boosting the likes of Cloyster and Crustle to game-breaking levels.
    However, the difference between me and him is that I find pleasure in simply playing through the games and not concerning myself with the competitive scene.
    I just feel a little sad that I didn't make more of an effort to take him up on his challenge back in high school.

    Well, there are a few people in my town that play Pokemon (I guess, considering the fact that one time I went to Walmart, and HeartGold was sold out), but they're not people I know or hang out with... Most people just make fun of Pokemon where I live, sadly.

    I'm really lucky in this sense, I made several friends in secondary school who are really into pokemon and all but one of them are still into it and up to date. It must be hard to be an alone pokemon lover, your obsession would only be fed by others over the internet, in fact I'd say if my friends had grown out of it I would have given up by now.
    Objectives:
    1) Fill a box with shiny pokemon! (before X)
    2) Breed quality competitive battlers!
    3) befriend someone with a ditto safari!
    Drop me a PM if you want to help me! We'll sort a trade out

    I am very lucky in this sense. Most of my closest friends still religiously play pokemon games when they are released. I lived in a house for years with 4 other people in college and after, on the weekends we partied and during the week after work we all played videogames. When black and white came out, there was like 2 straight months of mass pokemon hysteria. Trading, battling, trading shiny pokemon for real life goods, and loads of bragging rights. I've since left the town where I attended school and moved to Oklahoma City because I am lucky and got a great job. However, I miss those guys and those times. Being an adult, it is hard to find someone with similar interests, and I am a pokemon addict.
    time you enjoy wasting is not wasted- john lennon

    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    I was lucky enough to know a couple of people and through a couple of years of playing and talking have a bunch of people I know into Pokemon now. The original group was three people and now it is 16 of us or so that play.

    I know most of the people my age in my area and I can safely say that about 5% of those people do not play or like pokemon. I have a couple of relatives which I hardly see and thats about all.

    Exactly like me. Well I know somebody but he's not at my school, so I'm okay. If one of my friend knew that I play Pokémon, I think I wouldn't have friend anymore, being rejected as well. So I'm hiding it but I also play Xbox, not because it's the best way to hide Pokémon, but also because I love this Xbox. So yeah, that's my own pleasure.

    Only one other person. The second one moved away last summer, and the one other person left I rarely talk to.
