I'm 21. Still not old to play Pokemon. <3
Wow, I'm very surprised by that: most people playing it are 16-19 : I'm 18 and i only know three other people my age who play it. This is a pleasant surprise ofc :)
I feel sorry for 2002 - it has no-one and is very very sad and very very lonely :( I think everyone who posts on here from now on should give 2002 and hug *hugs 2002*
Hey - I hugged a whole year - go me!
Anyhums, I'm surprised that there aren't many older players, and by that I mean people mroe around my age who were nearer ten when the franchise began (people who are technically Ash's age lol). Also though, I thought there would be more really younger players than what they are. Guess it just goes to show that you never ever know, or "ken" as we say in Scotland but that just doesn't rhyme...
Tarar 2002 *mwah*
EDIT - just wanna fix some spelling mistakes and say I voted for 1987, not because I was born in it, it was just a great year XD
This seemed like an interesting thread ^_^
I was born in 1985, so 25 this coming October and also remember the different crazes surrounding Pokémon when it first arrived and obviously after that too.
It's also odd as a few people have said that 1993 is the highest year. I would have suspected that more people around 10 at the time it came out everywhere, but ah well.
I intend to play the games until they make no more...or I can't remember them. XD
*hugs 2002 also*

Me? Born in 1999, been a fan since around '03/'04/'05.
OMG Im 14... Im one of the many who were the main crowd :O
'95... I can't believe that I'm one of the younger ones! I got into it at around 5 or 6, when I got into the anime and cards just because they had Pokemon in\on them. I got my first Pokemon game (Sapphire) when I was 9, made plenty of stupid mistakes on it, and I've been into it ever since.
Wow, I ramble XD
I was born in 1990, the same year the concept of Pokemon was first put into play. I got into the franchise when I was 9, in 1999. My best friend got me into the entire franchise, and I always try to get the latest versions. Yep, i'm going to be 20 in May and i'll still play the games! I'm not much into the anime as I used to be, i'll watch the classic episodes from time to time because so many memories come back. I really want to read the mangas sometime though.
Oka, so I'm an early 80's baby. I started playing the game when I was 16 and now that I'm 29, still ain't stopping (I had a lull between RSE and DP)
I suppose many if not most of the fans are from that period, when Pokemon was at the height of its popularity (I call it the Golden Age, which is cliche). I guess a lot of us feel nostalgic as well.
I watched the very first episode of Pokemon (even though I'm pretty sure I had no idea what was going on) with my sisters as well. My sisters bought Pokemon Blue for their Gameboys and I often stole it to play for myself.
I still play the games (new and old) and I am rewatching the first 5 seasons of the anime.
I actually didn't get into Pokemon until DP came out :O I was born in 1996, and didn't DP come out in like 2006...? So I was about 10. I fell in love with DP (I never got to experience Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, etc), and it's probably because I never played any of the other games. I love the anime and I watch it every week, and I keep my Pokewalker under my clothes every day at school (8th grade). I can safely say I wouldn't be the same without Pokemon.
I was born in 1973
I think i might be the oldest fan :)
I started playing pokemon when the gb color with red blue gold yellow. with my wife
and now like 10 years later, still playing but now both my sons that are 6 and 4 play with us now. It is a family thing :)
1991. I'm 19 years old.
I was a fan of Pokemon just before I decided to sell all my Pokemon Games along with my GBA in 2006. After 2 years of taking my mind off of it, I decided to make a comeback by getting Pokemon Platinum for my 18th Birthday.
