    Default Pokemon at 42?

    Hello :)

    I am a 42 year old man who has recently got into Pokemon through my young son. He has told me to come on this forum to protect him from possible cyber bullies. I have gotten the pokemon fever recently and I was wondering if it was ok to play pokemon at any age. My wife thinks it is silly but I really like this new generation video games.

    Here is a picture of my son:

    Why wouldn't it be? Hell, I'm 30 and I'm a mod here. One of the mods is in his 50s.

    Also you...may not want to post a pic of your kid. Just saying, that's one of those things that'll get you in some hot water. Plus it's hotlinked (linked from another website directly) and most sites frown on that. I'll delete the link, but in the future, please be more cautious.

    Also might want to look How old are you, Pokťmon Fans? (Once more from the top) there to get a gauge on the age differences for all members here

    I like the idea of someone at 42 playing pokemon. Shows how universal the game is.

    Makes me feel better about playing at 25. Nice, harmless way to stay in touch with one's inner child.

    And the mods around here do take cyber-bulling very seriously. Recently, one user was banned for sexual harrassment. Just FYI.

    So's the real world as well.

    But anyway, I don't see a problem with playing Pokemon at this age.

    To be honest, I think it's great that you're into Pokémon. It's an easy way to get more involved with your son. Heck, I'm glad my six year old brother has got into Pokémon, as it allows me to bond with him more. Try telling that to your wife, and get her involved too =3

    As for the cyber bullies. Don't worry, if anything does happen, as long as your son makes a staff member aware, it will be dealt with. They take this kind of thing very seriously.

    ^Basically, yeah. They're very good about it. Though I've seen very little of it here, anyway. Then again, I'm probably not looking in the right places.

    From my experience here, they seem more efficient at it than most schools are...the stories I hear from my local school *shudders*

    I think it's a good thing when an older adult plays video games. It brings out their inner fun child.

    All schools I've been to are horrible with that topic.

    With that said, it's kind of sad that a Pokemon Forum handles that better than people who are there to help with your education.
