Default Just ordered Y!

Hey all,

So I have just ordered y. I was at school when the original pokemon stuff came onto the scene.

Some people think I'm a bit odd buying it as I am now...ahem 30 years young. Whats the average age of you players out there? Are many older players still playing and enjoying it?

Been playing since I was about 6, currently 22. You have nothing to fear, everyone is still a pokefan at heart.

Being afraid of playing Pokemon at such an age is so old news

Nothing to fear, my friend.

I am 19 and started at 6 with Yellow.
Although Pokemon doesn't appeal to me as it used to back then with Ruby and Sapphire, I still enjoy the games, at least most of them...(I am looking at you Black and White!)

It's the most complex RPG ever made, what's there to be ashamed of if you're playing it at an older age?

I'm 20 and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I'll continue playing Pok?mon until I either die or they stop making new games and I don't care what anybody has to say about it.

So I am finding out. It's really engrossing. Thought I'd try it for a bit and then two hours had gone by. Exactly what I hoped for.

Why should you be ashamed? If anything GameFreak deserves recognition. If they can make their product appealing to children as well as adults at the same time, kudos to them.

25, started with blue when it came out, I was 10. Played each since. That's why it sells so well, it appeals to all ages.
