Is it okay to play pokemon if you are over 10 yrs old?

If you actually go to any of the Pokemon TCG or VGC tournaments then you would find out that the average Pokemon player is in their early 20's. Nintendo's target audience =/= the people that actually play the games the most.

It's generally lame to assume that a game aiming at a young audience isn't fit for older people.
If you like a game, don't give a damn about the target audience (except if you're WAY too young for some), just play it. And don't care about the opinions of others.

If a game is rated E for Everyone, does that make it weird when someone older than you plays?

If everyone was right who'd be the gigalomaniac? "Whose eyes are those eyes?"

I personally have friends and family that is married and is still nuts about pokemon (we all started playing pokemon from the red and blue days...we all are in the upper 20s/lower 30s age wise. My older brother is 34, is married and still plays the games). You are never too old to do something when it comes to hobbies in my opinion.

pokemon is not childish game of cute monster,good sir. it's a gigantic equation and a guessing game.
also,the story and themes are just simplistic,that's why they seem childish,but they aren't.

27, 28 when XY come out, and happily enjoy them without any shame or embarassment.
