Pokemon hasn't been treated like that since I hit high school.

Maybe in like middle school, but after that no, in fact playing Pokémon was pretty normal, I know a lot of guys that would play the older ones in class.

Thankfully, I have a good group of non-judgmental friends who are all a little nerdy themselves (classical musicians, math guys, computer dorks) so it's never been an issue for me.

I have definitely encountered crap from people I don't care about much though, friends of siblings and the like.

In high school my friends played Pokemon with me. In college they were "too cool" to play it and I kept it to myself that I still did. Now as an adult I could care less. Sometimes my friends tease me about it but I don't care. They're just joking and it's their loss anyway - they're the ones missing out on these epic adventures!

That's because just about everyone has played pokemon at one point. They just dont have what I call "pokepride." And they form this ridiculous circle where everyone in the group acts as if they don't play pokemon to get along with each other.
Don't read this sentence.

Not at all. I was only teased about it in high school, but everyone's fine with it now.

Nope, never actually been criticised for playing a certain game. I even discovered some casual mates of mine, who are the manliest of dudes, really enjoy playing the games.

What friends?

To clarify so it's less depressing, all of my friends also play Pokemon.

Back in middle school for me Pokemon was uncool, that was Ruby and Sapphire. No one really played it anymore and i didn't either, Missed out on that Gen until i went back years later and played Emerald.

I got back into Pokemon in Gen IV in High School. I would play it during Study hall or in class with the volume off or headphones on. Some people tried to give me a hard time but i brushed it off and they left me alone. More people were actually into Pokemon again. I guess High School kids thinking its retro and stuff you know.

My close friends actually got back into Pokemon when i decided to get back into it. We all ended up getting Diamond or Pearl and eventually all got Platinum and got into Gen V as well. I am the only one with a 3DS though, but my friends do eventually plan to get one and X or Y.
