    I was only judged once in high school, when I brought in the Lugia figurine I got for free from purchasing SS to use in a photography class and two male classmates promptly made fun of it. Now that I'm in college, I hang out with well over thirty pokemon fans every Tuesday and Thursday.

    Nope, everyone at my high school loves Pokemon. I think we actually have an Anime Club too...

    Where I live the "Pokémon fever" from when Pokémon was a new franchise didn't get to the same degree (pun intended) as in the US (but it had some impact though).
    Let's just say that saying I'm still into Pokémon in public in the stage of life I'm in now is not a very good idea.

    I get some light teasing from my "normal" friends but for the most part they are okay with it. You'll find that people are more open-minded about Pokemon in college than they are in high school.

    Anything related to Pokemon is usually met with an extremely heavily sarcastic saying of "Cool guy".
    I pretty much immediately get made fun of if I say anything even slightly "non mainstream/nerdy"... so yeah :/
    But to be honest, after reading some of the stuff on here, that might just change.

    During my senior year of high school (two years ago already! ) me and several people (including the non-nerds!) played Pokémon at lunch. Everyone knew the original Pokémon theme song as well

    Top game series: Pokémon, Mass Effect, Mario, Sonic, Batman Arkham, Ace Combat, Forza, GTA, Sly Cooper, etc

    I have yet to experience any judging from anyone. I may get a few odd looks when I whip out one of my Pokemon games, but I've never had anyone come up to me and judge me.
    Once upon a time there was a leafeon. There wasn't anything special about him. He was just a regular leafeon.
    But there's a story behind the leafeon.

    I got judged when I was in high school because all my classmates were humongous assholes. But now nobody really cares. Late '90s/early '00s nostalgia has caught up to my generation, so now I can hold extensive Pokémon geek-out sessions with my peers. I actually received great praise this past Halloween when I wore my Satoshi hat to work. :)
    This is my DeviantArt. Pretty neat, huh?

    Meh. Dunno or care how people react to it. Along with the two-three Homestucks (me included), I see like five or six others sporting Pokemon clothes or etc, or playing the games in class, or drawing the arts (also like me XD). So some good reception for it in this redneck hole that's called my high school. But there'll always be those who like to make fun of people regardless.

    "Hello Goodbye, I'm rather crazy
    How I find myself without you
    And I never thought I was crazy
    That I'll never know
    But what do I know?
    I let myself go"
    Now you have to go"

    I don't even care what anyone think. I am what I'm am.

    Yes, very much. There was an uproar when I brought my PokeWalker. ^^ I don't care much, though.

    I don't let my peers know that I like Pokemon. I was teased a lot in 6th to 8th grade for playing Pokemon a few times on the school bus. In high school, even when I came across several Pokemon fans, I wouldn't disclose it because I didn't want to go back to being known as the Pokemon freak girl, haha. The only time I've mentioned liking Pokemon in college was during a speech about how I met my best friend in 6th grade. No one in the class made a big deal about it. Well, maybe they assume that I don't play Pokemon still. ;(

    The only people who truly know are my parents, two brothers, and some of my parents' friends. My mom often tells me to stop playing, that Pokemon interferes with my responsibilities. My dad jokes when he sees the Pokemon movies on TV and tells me to watch it (but he doesn't offend/judge me). One time, my dad's coworker got a Pokemon toy from one of those happy meal things, his kids didn't want it, so he gave the toy to my dad to give it to me. :B I don't even want the toys. I just play the games. I try my very best to explain how complex and interesting Pokemon can be to my brothers. Sadly, my brothers prefer games like Call of Duty. I really can't get them to play anything I like to play. They sometimes give me a hard time since they don't want me playing 'baby' games but want me playing their games with them. Uh huh.

    I didn't really tell anyone about it in elementary and middle school, as the only kids who played Pokemon at the time were annoying and teased mercilessly. By the time I was a senior in high school three weeks from graduation, though, I did not care in the slightest. I brought my DS to school one day, and three other people I knew had a DS within three days. It was good times.

    Now that I'm 23, I still don't care -- the only people who judge are my immediate family members, and they don't even care all that much; they just find it oddly amusing.
    tomorrow's just a song away.
