    Default How much are you into Pokemon?

    I'm curious as to how into this franchise some of the people are.

    How would you rate yourself of on a scale of 1 to 10?

    One being you only have a passing interest (I'm not sure anybody here will say one but still), ten being you're obsessed.

    I would put myself as a ten, cause it's become a very core element to my life.

    That couldn't have ended well.

    I was going to say 1, but at that point I'm not sure why I'd still be here xD

    I'll say 2, tops. After not enjoying XY all that much, I've just had no will to play it. No matter which game I try to play though, I just lose interest and play something else in like 5 minutes. Could go back up in the future, but I don't know.

    I'd say 8
    Cuz I fucking love Pokémon, but I wouldn't call myself obsessed. I play lots of other games too :)

    On a scale of 1 to 10... I'd say... 7.

    I really enjoy the games, and I love the whole universe and canon of it all. I stopped watching the anime a long time ago, and I don't read Manga, so pretty much it's just the games and the story that intrigues me.

    The only reason it's not higher is because Pokemon is just one of the numerous other things that I like and spend time with. xD

    Haha, just kidding! Well, maybe not entirely. I adore this franchise and I have to say it is my all-time favorite. I own all the games, collect the manga, collect the merchandise of my favorite Pokemon, travel hours just to go to Pokemon tournaments and conventions, and I still watch the anime and movies. Not to brag, but I have to say I am pretty dedicated to this franchise. I would have to rate myself a 9.5/10. The only reason why I am not a perfect 10 is because I do have my other favorite franchises that I love and there are people who are a lot more dedicated than me, but overall and speaking for myself, Pokemon is my favorite franchise that I will love for years to come. :D

    maybe 7.5/10
    I do play it alot these days... but I had quit for about two years before this. Overall I've only been into it for about 5 years which feels long, but compared to alot of other people is pretty short.

    10.
    Somehow I've memorized the Pokédex, have played through most every game in the series including the side games, know all of the characters, their teams, and what mons to use at whatever point in any game. The only piece of Pokémon media I haven't partaken in is the manga, but other than that I am solidly obsessed. I've got all these Pokédolls and trading cards and guidebooks, just everything. It's my favorite game series, what can I say.

    Send help I fear for my sanity.

    X & Y shot down my interest in Pokémon a lot, and at the same time I've been enjoying some other franchises that have kept my interest. So right now I would say that I'm around 3-ish. Considering this is the least interested I've ever been into Pokémon since I started playing, I highly doubt it would go any lower than that, which I suppose is a plus for Nintendo since they'll always get my money, haha.

    At my peak I would probably say I was at an 8, maybe? I never really got into the TCG game (only for collecting purposes, but that quickly faded out), but at one point during the third gen I was involved with the manga and anime, and uber-involved the games. Like, I-bought-a-Gamecube-just-to-play-Pokémon-Colosseum uber-involved. (And to this day the only Gamecube games I've ever played were Colosseum and Luigi's Mansion, which I'm pretty sure I only got 'cause it was bundled with my Gamecube.) Those were good times.

    I think I'm an 8. Though, I do talk about Pokemon a lot IRL.
    I love the fandom which is why I'm still active on the forums.

    3 at the moment, primarily because I was disappointed somewhat with X and Y. The last interesting thing to happen was the Pokemon Bank's release, where I expected the game to be more interesting with my old 'mons, but the biggest thing causing a three is my obsession with Fire Emblem Awakening. At my peak, which was Gen 5, I was definitely a 10. (I finished and replayed Black2 three times within a month and a half.)

    During gen 3 I was a 10 by far. I replayed emerald more times then I can count. Then gen 5 was kinda disspointing to me so I dropped to a 2 or 3 up until about a month ago and now Id say im about a 7.

    I'd say 9.

    I have every main game except for Leaf Green, Black 2, and X. I've spent over a thousand hours playing the story and have done thousands of Wi-Fi trades over the years. I'm familiar with every Pokemon in the Pokedex. Sometimes, I'm a walking encyclopedia myself. I know the main game and its mechanics in-depth. I own several of the spin-off games. I only completed the first few TCG sets, but I have a few Johto cards. I've drawn fanart and made graphics, but I haven't considered reading any fanfiction/manga. I don't follow the anime series much, not since Hoenn anyway, but I am familiar with the characters. I have bought merchandise, but this was in the 90's.

    I wouldn't, for example, get a tattoo of a Pokemon or have a Pokemon birthday cake (which is what I consider a 10/10 fan would do haha). However, Pokemon is an important part of my life and has been with me since Red and Blue.

    Probably an 8 or 9. Most likely a 9. I don't think I'm so obsessed with it that I'd rank a 10, but the games are one of my main interests/hobbies, so it has to be a high ranking. My interest can wane from time to time like with anything, though.

    I think seven, I've been a fan since the beginning, played all the games aside from a few spin-offs and love the manga but I'm not that much into pokémon 'cause I usually come up and down in the amount of time I dedicate it (like spending days without touching my games), and don't like the anime at all. I really like Pokémon and I know I'll still loving it but I wouldn't consider myself obssessed with the franchise.

    My interest comes and goes, I'd say it ranges from about 5 at the lowest to a 10 at highest. At the moment, I'd say it's about a 6.
