Did anyone ever play pretend Pokemon when they were younger?

My friend and I used to pretend we were Pokemon trainers and use the plastic Pokeballs that came in the Burger King Happy Meals at one point. We'd run around outside throwing them around like they were real capturing new Pokemon and battling each other.

It was quite epic! I know I'm not the only one who did this.

Me and some friends in elementary school used to pretend we were both Pokemon and trainer, or take on roles like that.

AKA Friend A: "Go Pikachu!"
Friend B: *Runs in front of them* "Pika!"

I'm pretty sure I took a pine cone and pretended it was a Pineco...

Lol, that's pretty hardcore. We never did that, but we would chase our dogs and cats with Pokeballs. Our batch of balls musta been defective. V__V

No, but that was because we were in high school. We did, however, play pretend Metroid and pretend Contra a decade earlier. Pretty much just as geeky.

My brother and I did this but we would pretend to be both the trainer and our Pokemon ourself...

So we'd like... stand up, yell command, quickly go back to Pokemon crawling or whatever XZD, then keep doing that XZD Even though I was teenager (he is younger though) it was fun.

Goodness yes. For hours we would run around throwing invisible balls, catching pokemon and kicking ass. We had storylines, starters, rules, etc. I miss those days.

The better question is who didn't.

You bet your ass I did. Me and my friends always did it. We just happened to always have a counter to our current pokemon.
