Got a 5 year old nephew who loves watching the show. But I'm contemplating getting him Pokemon X/Y cuz he got a 3DS for Christmas.

I just ain't sure if he will have the attention span to play. I barely did near the age of 8 or 9 when Blue first came out

I'm not an expert, but 6 and up sounds fine to me.
Since he is 5, go ahead.

When did Pokémon start? '98? My brother would have been 5 and he could play just fine.

I was in 2nd or 3rd grade when pokemon came out so I can't speak for this line personally, however I have been playing Mario and Final Fantasy since I was 3 and I was fine (and played rather well).

I think that a 5yo would be fine. It's not like it is a game that you really have time limits on things for. He can save and put it down whenever he wants to do something else (compared to games with dungeons and save points that you have to find before you can stop).

Yeah I would have been 6, maybe 7 when I started. If you want to have a good understanding then maybe a little older would be better.

I started at 5 TC 19 now

Shouldn't have much issues
I have realized the WoW community and Minecraft community are easily the most pleasant. The rest generally cause me to suffer brain cell loss or head trauma.

My only concern was I imagine it requires a reading level that I dont think hes quite as yet
