I used to be really into this game when I was younger and for some reason I've got interested in it again. Do you think it's weird for someone in their 20s to be playing a pokemon game? Are there any other uses for this DSi that I could use instead of just the game? I know my mom and brother would be like, you still play pokemon, lol. But yea, for some reason I've become interested in it again. So, what are your thoughts on this?

You are never to old to play Pokemon, really. when I was like 8 years old I went with my parents to pick up my older brother from his camping trip. They were supposed to come back in a bus and all the parents were there. In the corner one of the dads who looked like he was 60 years old, with glasses and kind of fat was sitting alone playing his gold or silver version and when his son got off the bus, I heard him talking about Pokemon to his son all the way back to his car.

I don't know why I remember this.

:O I wish my dad would talk to me about Pokemon. Honestly, I know some people who are way above 20 who still play Pokemon. As long as you're not obsessed with the series it's cool (with me). The DSi is still new so it has a lot of potential. Of course there's the camera and browser and DS sound but it's still the same DS. With better features, bigger and brighter screens, and sexy colors.

I wish my parents would play video games they are 40 and 46. The only game they play is American Idol on the Wii and half the time they just end up laughing their heads off because they think it is funny...I just don't get how that game is funny?

So do i. =0 People who says that pokemon is childish doesn`t even have a clue. The anime looks a bit childish, but the game is not, specially competitive battles, which turn out to be an huge pressure on mind and predict game if you play to win.

You're never too old to play Pokemon. Underneath the kiddy appeal is a rather deep role-playing experience. I'm 23 and Pokemon is one of my most favorite things in life :)

Well, I guess there's nothing wrong with getting Pearl or Diamond, but I think that they both cost the same as Platinum at Gamestop(if that's where you are going to get it), and Platinum is like a sort of an upgrade to Diamond and Pearl, like Yellow, Crystal, and Emerald.

The only good thing for Pearl that I can think about now is that there is at least are version exclusive Pokemon that you can get in D/P, that you can't get in Platinum, like Glameow, but that doesn't matter because you can just trade for them.

you don't need to get Platinum but I recommend that you do for the changes / additions.

Never be ashamed of the things you like to do (assuming they're legal and decent :)). And if anyone ever gives you a hard time for it, act like they're the strange one.

The only time I can see something like playing Pokemon at an old age becoming a problem is if you're totally absorbed by it. If you're on a date, for example, I wouldn't recomment bringing up Pokemon every5 minutes...unless he's/she's into that kind of thing, of course.

Well, I'm 40 and I just started playing Pokemon : ) Yes, it is something that very young kids can learn to play, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun or challenging for adults. If that was all you played, then it might be a problem : ) Probably any criticism you get is from uninformed people who have never played any Pokemon or just know the TV show.

I don't think anyones too old to play Pokemon really. I mean its rated E for everyone right? And even if it does look kiddy, it doesn't make it right for older people to stop playing it. Even though people will probably think its weird to see older people still talking and playing Pokemon. Its not a bad thing IMO.

My dad's the same. I'm nineteen and i'm not thinking of stopping anytime soon. If it's fun and I still like and enjoy it, why stop?

Nah, all the seniors in my highschool (even the jocks) are having a Pokemon tourney at the end of the school year (Red, Blue, and Yellow).

It's a classic, and anyone could play it. I don't know why many people view it as a "Kid only" game.

I'm 32 and I just recently bought my first DS (matte black DSi) and Pokemon Platinum. The fact of the matter is that if you genuinely enjoy something, then you shouldn't give a damn what other people think.

I'm 21 and still enjoy pokemon. It has gotten a lot better than the old days of R/B/Y such as breeding etc...

Just enjoy your games and don't let people say you are too old.

short answer no, but from my experience if you accumulate a lot of money ur never too old for anything since no one will get on ur back.
