If the current poll results mean anything, then Pokemon is slowly starting to go down in popularity, as people who grew up with out are now outgrowing it and moving on to more mature video games. This has me worried, as Pokemon has always been the number one system seller for Nintendo consoles. So if it becomes unpopular, imagine how poorly Nintendo portables in the future will sell.

ITT: there are currently no kids growing up.

brain dead version: each gen of Pokemon has new people coming in to play for the first time.

It doesn't because usually people who visit GFaqs just come here to whine about things or fight with anonymous people.

It's also worth noting that the poll hasn't been up for very long, and hasn't even covered GameFAQs when it comes to results yet.
