I was on my way to home in the bus after work yesterday and I was leveling up my Pokemon with PSS screen on the bottom. Suddenly, one player from Passersby challenged me for a single battle.

Since there was no Wi-Fi in the bus, the battle evidently happened through local connection. I was quiet surprised and felt a little awkward. I also took a quick scan around me who was holding 3DS...

Due to the communication error and one of us had to get off the bus, we could not put an end to our battle. As I stashed my 3DS in my backpack and turned around, I saw the guy standing with 3DS on his hand. That is when I realized "Oh~ he must be the one that battled me!"

But for some reason, I did not bother talking to him but staring. And I think he also knew that I was his opponent as I sat a few seats ahead of him. He grinned a bit when we almost made an eye contact. I guess I am introverted or I was too tired to talk after an 8-hour of full-time work.

Not just because I don't bring my 3DS anywhere with me.

My bad for writing two different Topic titles. Anyway, you get the point :)

I probably would if they were my age or around my age. Because why not.

I have in the past and I would again.
I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

In college some people come up when they see my Pikachu 3DS.

One time in the metro station some guy sat near me & still used the voice chat from the game. I guess he was embarrassed.

Yeah, why not? There is no reason why you shouldn't. Both of you clearly enjoy the same thing, why not make a friend with similar interests?
