Leave some experiences, positive or negative, about people interacting with you while you're playing. Saw a thread earlier about whether people feel ashamed to play Pokemon in public or not, and just thought it would be interesting to see what people have actually experienced

I don't have anything too interesting, I once helped a kid connect his 3DS to the Wifi at the Australian equivalent of Starbucks when he saw me playing Mario Kart 7 after I just bought it, and I felt alpha as ****

My experiences range from good to awkward to downright uncomfortable. There are people who willingly talk to you, people who silently initiate trades / challenges with you (all while giving you weird looks every now and then) and people who unfortunately think that yelling and bringing up memes and old trivia is way to have a good conversation while on a bus.

I played XY madly in public when it first hit the scene, and so did a few other fans. I'd get guys who stared, but other than that nothing special.

XY really brought older players out of the dark in my neck of the woods.

Usually I get swarmed by hordes of little kids who ask "Is that Pikachu?" every 5 hours.

Nobody generally says anything to me about it. I once had a guy ask me if I was Japanese, playing in Japanese ofcourse, and one time at the doctors office some kid kept bugging me about the Pokemon I was using when playing Street Fighter, but that was like a 6 year gap.

In generally if I am talked to, it's about something other than my games I'm playing.

I don't play my 3ds games outside or in public. Unless it's a Pokemon event.

Aren't you guys afraid of losing your games or breaking them?

Once I was on a bus getting BP at the Maison and this huuge guy comes and sits next to me. So we sit in awkwardness while he looks he has the strength to snap my neck. All of a sudden he goes "Yo, do you have a Skitty? I wanna play with one of them in Amie. ****ing adorable. "

So I trade him a skitty and got a 6iv Rotom out of it. We registered each other.
