this way they can pretend to be different. most of them most likely dont even know a shit about those things (pokemon here), but it's so cool to say "WoW/pokemon sucks! I R SO SPECIAL NOMNOMNOM!"

Or you know, some of us might just genuinely not like it.

Also this will make me out to be a bit of a hypocrit but ill say it anyway, is pointing out how people wanna be different really any different itself? alot of people are pointing their fingers at people lately and calling each other poser's. how is this any different?

Pokemon never had anything interesting for me.  If anything when I saw Pokemon Tv Series in tv when I was eating for example, music, graphics and concept irritated me and I was switching channels to anything else.

 

I don't hate it, but it just does not have anything I like and have few things that I slightly dislike.

example: i dont like chocolate ice.

but why the hell should i flame anyone who eats it? i just don't get it myself and the prob is solved.

 

i NEVER would make a post about how sucky chocolate icecream is... and how stupid everyone is to eat it.

that's exactly what gamers think they've gotta do tho :)

 

got my point?

"believe me, mike.. i calculated the odds of this working against the odds that i was doing something incredibly stupid… and i did it anyway!"

Im pretty sure everyone understands it thats why there are people who purposely try to be different and try to get people to assimilate to their own opinions, it is also why so many people point it out. its a common concept. thats why i said what i said about pointing it out and how it makes you ( Or me currently) no different. In the end we are all just voicing our opinions on a controversial matter.

I saw it a couple of times on TV, and that was at that age when it was plausible for me to get hooked on something like that.

 

I hated every second of it. Tried to watch it, but simply couldn't. Switched channels immediately. I found the whole concept and idea annoying and retarded, the animation and visual style utterly repulsive and the hysterical screaming of everyone all the time completely unnecessary.

I like to think of myself as open minded, I can understand many things - even if I do not like them myself, I can understand why someone would like it. 

I can understand nostalgia and all the fuzzy feeling that goes with it, but I simply cannot understand this whole Pokemon mania, especially with people who are above 13 years of age.

Many people overlook 'cutesy' games and trash them just based on aesthetics. I was over Pokemon's target demographic when it was released (I was in my late teens) and I still purchased the original Blue.

The bottom line is that Pokemon is a solid strategy game, but most people who hate on it will never realise that because they never played it properly, or are simply basing it off the subsequent cartoon series rather than the games.

I do find it ironic that WoW players would hate on it though, when WoW is full of cutesy cartoon graphics and has shallower gameplay than Pokemon.

I loved pokemon but I dont really like the new pokemon much.  I liked the first 150 but after that it just got a bit bothersome for me.  Kind of like the Megaman Battle Network franchise.  I loved the first one but didnt really like the 2nd one that much and after that it was just same old same old to me >.<

I was pretty in to pokemon when it came out, and i can watch all the way up to early johto, but anything that came out after i moved on from pokemon just annoys me. I only like the first part because it reminds me of fun times when I was little and also the first few times i stayed up really late hiding under the covers to play it, and playing the game with all my friends.

The opinion of a penguin.

The first 150, the first TV series, the collecting card game (i used to beg for money outside walmart to buy pokemon cards xD) and the first video games were incredible.  Such a magical time in my life, but that was because I was only 7 or 8.  I only like it now because it's part of my youth.  If I didn't know what is was and was asked to watch it now, I'd be like wtf is this Asian crap.

I agree and disagree.

I mean, they have obviously run out of ideas for new pokemon. One of the new ones is an ice cream cone....

But the actual strategy of the game has improved, with held items, double teams, innate effects, better balancing etc.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

7/27/12 8:53:58 AM#33

My one daughter who is now 23 watched pokemon avidly.  I tolerated it.  Now we tell pikachu jokes now and then.

But like it no, not in the least lol.

I watched a bit of transformers, but only to pass the time, if anything I think the movies are better than the TV shows (And I dislike the movies.)

 

But maybe I was just too young for them to appeal to me, I'm currently 21.

 

Pokemon all the way!

Pokemon, Teletubbies, Power Rangers, Barney, Sesame Street Muppets...

There are some similarities in these primary-colored marketing wonders.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

If that guy grew up watching MASK, he-man and Transformers I'd guess he is around 30 or more like me, there is a pretty big difference in age there between us and the 80's were vastly different to the 90's to grow up in.

I agree with that, but just because someone didn't grow up playing/watching Pokemon, or didn't like it, is that really enough to bash people who did grow up with it?

 

I love being a 90's baby!

By the time the franchise even reached EU I was already sick of jRPGs (frankly the only jRPG I actually enjoyed was FF VI) and never really seen appeal of it. Might be the fact that I'm not much of a fan of anime and asian styled animation. There is absolutely nothing in Pokemon I'd enjoy. 

Hating? Nah. Just sick of it being presented as something extraordinary. For me it feels merely average.

What if you're too old to like Pokemon?  Like, if you're a certain age, people think it's creepy.  I was 22 years old when Pokemon first came to my country.
