    Are you kidding? You're older than my mother, who was bron in 1962.

    That demonstrates how the Pokémon=kiddy games idea most people has about Pokémon is pure bullshit.

    I'm 19.

    I think the wonderful thing about Pokemon is that it's always gaining NEW fans. It's multi-generational.

    Born in '89. Played Blue when it came out but not hugely, it was only when I got Gold on my lime green GBC that everything really kicked off. Sort of lost interest after Crystal, but when I played Ruby for the first time everything clicked back into place.

    And the rest, as they say, is history. But also present. And future.

    This thread to this day remindes me that I'm way outside the usual curve on this stuff. If I was in college today I'd be surrounded by Pokemon players.

    Actually, according to the poll, most pokemon players were born in 1993 same year as me, meaning that the majority of pokemon players are currently in 10th or 11th grade, and it slopes away from there. You would think that GameFreak might realize this and instead of targeting 10 years olds, target 16 year olds. The big problem is that 10 year olds nowadays can't understand as complex a system as pokemon uses for battling and exploring, making it not fun for them. Too bad really, I mean even if Pokemon has gone out of style by that time, I'm totally gonna have my kids play it.

    Not surprised to see most of the users are from the early 90s but it's awesome to see what a diverse age range there is.
    I was born in 1991 so I'm currently in college, having left high school last year.
    Even though I was playing Red first time round, I definetly appreiciate and enjoy it more now at the age of 18!

    I actually thought of this very thing last night. My kids are going to be huge nerds and then they'll resent me for it. It's going to be GREAT!

    1995.

    I've played pretty much every game and I'm hooked like a Magikarp.

    Oooh, that comparison was pretty bad.

    1992, Just turned 18 a week or so ago actually.

    How strange, although the polls show that the majority of the fandom lies in the 15-20 range the franchise is supposed to be aimed at younger gamers. Of course, this poll only has like a thousand votes so its not exactly representative of the whole fandom...

    Yes, so maybe we need to check polls from the Japanese as well. Does anyone know about popular Pokemon forums in Japanese? I can go visit them.
    Actually I'm pretty surprised that only 64 in almost 1200 people are older than me.

    Well, it varies depending on location, gender, and family structure. Where I live a lot of little kids are addicted to more simplistic (if not violent) games like Halo, and wouldn't fully grasp Pokemon in my opinion.
