Middle school: Everyone plays Pokemon. Being good at Pokemon makes you a god.

High school: Nobody plays Pokemon. Being good at Pokemon means nothing.

College: EVERYONE FUCKING PLAYS POKEMON. BEING GOOD AT POKEMON MAKES YOU A FUCKING GOD.




And that's why college is awesome.

    In my University there is a Pokémon Society but not everyone in the University plays Pokémon. There are about 120 members of the society but only 30 come to the meetings regularly including me. Last year Ben Kyriakou, the UK VGC Champion, was a member of the society but he left the university at the end of the year.

    So true. At my HS, Pokémon was considered the domain of the frosh and used to mock them. At college, one student dressed as Ash just before Halloween and (as far as I know) never caught any crap for it.

    I know right, unfortunately for me, at my college, one of two problems are there:

    1. Almost nobody in my dorm building is interested in Pokemon (or at least on my floor), the only one I do know that does has no 3DS, and the rest are those annoying Gen 1 fans, meaning not much to talk about.

    2. A few of the Pokemon fans I have met have been rather massive jerks, one in particular was rather snobby and rude, saying that my team sucked because it consisted of nothing but "cute" Pokemon (you call Chesnaught and Charizard "cute"?), and that he hated cute Pokemon (he called Espurr "retarded") and only liked "cool, badass, monstrous" Pokemon like Charizard and Blaziken, and then I was really annoyed by the fact that a lot of the time he used Yveltal more than anything else (which reeks of n00b), everyone else has been slightly nicer, but this guy just made me mad...

    Ahahaha, I've never talked to you before, but I just felt like saying that this has been my experience too. Not EVERYONE plays Pokémon, but there's quite a lot of people who do. One of my best friends here is as obsessed with Pokémon as I am, so we went to get our copies of X/Y together and played for 2 days straight XD And there was an ice cream social for Computer Science majors, and we spent the majority of time talking about Pokémon XD

    I'm sorry about that, that's no fun :( I can only speak from my own experience... at least in my case, Pokemon is everywhere on campus, and almost everyone either has X/Y or wants it and plans to get it.

    Yikes, that really sucks. On my campus we don't have any of the asshole competitive players, even the ones who are into EV training and what have you are nice and play primarily because it's fun! Don't let him get to you, though, if he uses legendaries on his team it'sclear he's compensating for something, eheheh

    In my university, there's a lot of Pokémon going around. I even mentioned it in a blog. After X and Y came out, I constantly see Pokémon X or Y when I StreetPass on campus, just as I predicted, and it's awesome.

    When I'm living in my Dad's house in Bath I often go to the University of Bath Library to do university work and last time I went there I saw a girl on the ground floor who I also saw at the 5th Nugget Bridge Manchester Pokémon Tournament, the Pokémon World Championship Qualifier in Birmingham and the Manchester MCM Comic Con. Every time I've seen her she has worn a Mudkip hat. I spoke to her and she said she didn't know that I'm a student at Bath and I said that I wasn't and explained why I was there. This proves that there is at least one other Pokémon fan at the University of Bath.

    Do you take your 3DS around the University of Bath with you everyday @Froakie like I do in the University of York? If you do the StreetPass name of the person I met in the University of Bath and conventions is Rina and there might be more Pokémon fans with a 3DS at the University now that X and Y have released. You should check what games each 3DS owner has recently played and if it is a Pokémon game. That is how I got to know, contact and meet Pokémon fans and 3DS owners in my university by sending personal messages to them each time I StreetPassed them.

    Agreed, he seems like one of those players who see Pokemon as only mindless killing machines, to which I am against the portrayal of Pokemon as mindless killing machines, especially since I am someone who likes giving all my Pokemon personalities of their own to make the game more enjoyable for me, as well as make the game feel more realistic since the Pokemon now have their own personalities and traits. I usually avoid using legendaries since it seems like a dead end and makes the game less enjoyable for me.

    I play the games for fun if anything, I never really cared for EV's (I evolved mine to Sylveon anyways) or IV's, and I was never into the competitive battling community, I just play the games to enjoy them.

    Care to explain why you're assuming he's neither being pragmatic nor simply likes Yveltal?

    Oh, lol, I've seen her! (because she wears that hat)

    Yeah I do take my 3DS with me and i get about 20 streetpasses a day - I should have worded it better... I know there are people at uni who play it of course I just don't know or speak to anyone who does! I have a few people on my 3ds who I streetpass really often but I have no idea who they are in person.

    Same here. No one at my college plays pokemon ;_; I'm pretty much alone, and I have to meet up with a friend who goes to a different school to trade and battle.
