Is Gamefreak finally getting the idea that the bulk of their fans are 16 and up. With origins and the new commerical for x and y it just seems that gamefreak finally is. --- GT: xDeadheadx420 Black 2 FC: 2194 6824 5699

Exactly. I am 25 as well. I don't know anyone under 13 that likes Pokemon. I know many people over 20 that do. --- Xerneas, The DNAntler Pokemon Currently Awaiting...SSBU, SSB3DS, Pokemon X, Pokemon Y and Watch Dogs.
I think they are beginning to understand that the fanbase, while still comprised of children for the most part, is starting to age. Better explanations in-game of battle mechanics is one of the things that seems to indicate that, to me at least.
Having said that, I highly doubt that Nintendo is actively seeking to please their original fanbase, some of whom, like myself, are nearing 30. If we still play, that's great and I'm sure Nintendo will be happy to have our money, but the focus will always be on a younger audience. --- Alakazam Arcanine Flygon Golduck Primeape Tyranitar
