And I still think Gen I had some of the worst designs in the series. :P

How many threads like these do you need to reassure you that you're not too old to still be playing?


Lol buddy, you have no reason to worry about that. I play Pokemon openly at University along with my friends, and those who don't always get engaged because they're curious how it's changed since they played. I am a firm believer that Pokemon is timeless. I'm just curious to see the demographics of the GameFAQs board, that's all.

You guys make me like I'm ancient.

I'm 31.

I started with Red/Blue on Game Boy in 1996. I got the special Nintendo Power VHS of the cartoon's first three episodes. It was available only through a special "send away for it" promotion about six months before the show ever made it to American television. After that, I called EB Games every day asking if Pokemon had come in yet; most of the employees had no idea what I was talking about. I went and bought both versions, Red and Blue, the first day they arrived at EB.

Skip ahead about three years and Pokemon was all anyone is talking about. The cards couldn't be restocked fast enough and the show was the most watched kid's show on TV. I NEVER thought it would be the phenomenon it turned out to be.

Now, in 2012, I'm 31 and I still play every single Pokemon RPG that comes out. My PC box has one each of all 648 Pokemon (Meloetta isn't available in the U.S.; it will make the complete 649 when it is released), a feat that took nearly 600 hours across generations of Pokemon games. And I did it without cheating once.

The only difference between me playing Pokemon way back then and me playing now is that now I play with my wife, and when my daughter is born (April - woo-hoo!), I'll play with her, too. This leads me to believe that anyone who thinks they are "too old" for Pokemon is a blithering idiot.

All right. I'm just kinda tired of topics like this one.

26, FYI. Since I didn't say earlier.
