    Default Little encounters with other Pokemaniacs

    So I thought we could have a thread to discuss those moments when we happen to discover that some other person, like a stranger on the bus or waiting in line or whatever, is also a Pokemon fan.

    Today I was riding the T (Boston's subway system) home from class and I saw that the dude sitting next to me was playing Pokemon - I'm not sure which game - on his DS. He wasn't very good at it, though; he was using a Swellow against an Electrode, which the Electrode proceeded to 1-hit KO. I was going to make a suggestion but I worried I'd sound presumptuous; maybe he was out of good Pokemon or something.

    Anyone else have those moments?

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    One time this kid and I did a quick 3 vs 3 battle on the bus. We both missed our stops, but it was pretty fun. |D; Never saw him again, it was many years ago, but still, quite fun.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I can't think of a time. Ever.

    Except, my mums best friend has a daughter, about 4 years younger than me. My mum always says how she is just like me, but younger. When she was 15 she died her hair bright red behind her mums back (like me), likes the same music as me, is about to start stretching her ears (like me), has just applied for the same University as I have just graduated from and to top it off, when I was in GAME going to buy Black2, I ran into my Mum's friend. Turns out her daughter is obsessive over Pokemon too! Funnily enough we've never met.
    I'm a girl.

    I call a Squirrel legendary in X and Y, just sayin'.

    The time I turned up early to a lecture and caught my Entomology professor playing Pokemon Heart Gold on his DS. His response? "You wouldn't have a copy of this game too, would you? I really want a Scizor".

    At the midnight premiere of the final Harry Potter movie, there was a kid in the theater playing his game boy advance with leaf green in it sitting on a couch waiting for midnight to come around. He noticed me because as I was walking into the theater with my friends, I was playing on my gameboy advance with yellow version. The kid was about ten and had his little brother with him, and I was probably 15 at the time. We didn't talk for awhile because my friends and I were wandering around but eventually one of my friends started pulling out my DS holder thing and started counting all the Pokemon games I owned (lol). After that the kid started talking to me and we switched games (my fire red for his leaf green). I still haven't saved over his file because I want to give it back to him someday and let him play it again, just in case I ever see him again.

    Some annoying little kid sitting near me on the bus kept asking for my Emerald over and over. Then he grabbed for it and I dropped my GBA. My save file was ruined.

    At a new school, I try to make friends... but I'm shy. My mom introduces me to another kid, and says that Pokemon is one of the things I like. The other kid becomes fascinated and asks if I EV/IV or do competitive, etc. I end up shrinking away...
    Oh?
