Pretty much. I don't really ever had an interest in MySpace.
I mean, I think they realize I go to messageboards. I never get on when they are around (they freak out, and browse the entire forum and freak out over everything), but I'm sure they would be glad it's not porn.
And plus, I'm 16 and can drive. I think I can handle a Pocket Monsters board.

A black and white world
They probably wouldn't like how we don't have a swear filter then.

Lol, they don't realize I hear way more curse words everyday at school.

I live on my own, so what my family thinks of my interest in Pokemon really doesn't matter too much anymore since they usually don't have to deal with it. XD
But for the most part, my mom and dad have always been indifferent about the whole thing. Although my mom did buy me a DS for Christmas that first year the DS was out because I was complaining about not being able to see my GBA screen properly. My brother was a fan back when it was still a fad. His interest has faded, I think, but he doesn't hate it. I wouldn't be too surprised if he picks up Diamond or Pearl when they come out.

DOES IT VIA COPY/PASTE
I cop heaps of crap from my family about this subject.
Mother: I am really pissed at the moment after she refused to drive me into town to pre-order myself a Wii, thereby ruining any chance of getting one in the next 2 months. And when I asked if I could buy myself a replacement DS (the touch screen is cracked), she told me that I shouldn't have asked for a Wii and that I should've grown out of this whole "Nintendo Thing" by now.
Father: Knows that I like Pokemon but also knows that my older brother is a petrol-head just like my dad and therefore, I don't get any negative comments. I just don't get any comments at all.
Brothers (Younger, Twins, 8): Claim that Pokemon is a baby thing, but run crying to mum whenever I tell them that they can't play XD. They will NOT be playing the Wii.
Brother (Older, 17): Complete asshole about it. He knows that our dad doesn't give a shit about half the things I like and he rubs it in. Used to like Pokemon up until Silver version.
So yeah, how Emo-Music-lyric does that sound?

My mom doesn't care about it that much, and my kids routinely give me synopses of episodes I've missed. My daughter watches it with me on Saturdays. The only people at work who even understand the word 'Pokémon' are parents; the others just look at me funny.

My mom spent a great deal of time begging me to buy her a Skitty Pokedoll for Christmas.

My Dad sais I'm too old for it but doesnt really tease me about it alot. My mom is okay with it and my sis denies liking it even tho she really does.

Too old? Your only 13....
Your one of the youngest members here.

Both of my parents have no problem with it. Not only have they sat down and watched episodes with me before, but they both think it's totally great. A few years ago I was taken out of public school to be homeschooled, but through people in town we discovered some of the girls I got along with in school got caught drinking and all this crap. They much prefer I play video games and watch anime than go out and be "normal".

My parents have no problem with Pokemon. My dad thinks the games are good value (he saw my 500+ hour file on Emerald. XD) and if the anime is on he'll sit down and watch it with me "since there is nothing better on and I've got nothing to do" or something along those lines. My mother is awful...she's stolen my Sapphire, Leaf Green, Crystal and Blue games and she's asked if she can have my Pearl when I buy it (I said yes, meaning I'll never have a file on it, and I'm effectively spending £30 on her...the upside is she'll owe me a favour. XD)
Though she hates the anime...she hates all anime actually, due to "squeaky voices"...have to say, sometimes I agree with her -torches Celebi's voice-
My younger brother is autistic and he loves it. I have to hide my videos and DVDs from him or he'll have them on endless loop in his room. He's also pretty good at Pokemon Snap...he hits his target anyways. XDD
My mother knows more than my dad, but they both can recognise almost every Pokemon up to the second generation, and my mum some from the third gen. My brother likes the battle sequences from the third movie, and knows the name of every Pokemon in those...which is pretty good for him. XD
Both of my parents have said more than once I'm "too old" for Pokemon- I remind my father that he shares a model railway with my brother and my mother that she has as many Pokemon game files as I do!

My father thinks I'm immature and tells me to grow out of it all the time, but then he surprised me and got me some pokemon cards for Christmas. ^o^
My brother doesn't like pokemon, but he respects that I do because he likes those Magic The Gathering cards. Or whatever they are.
You know, pokemon is actually popular at my college. xD A lot of the kids in my dorm building have pokemon cards, and play the gameboy games too (mostly FR/LG). Sometimes we go downstairs and watch the anime on the big TV in the dorm lobby. LOL

My parents couldn't care less, and I like it that way. My ex's dad was into pokemon and stuff like that and it was just weird. That whole family was nothing but freaks now that I think about it. My brother doesn't tease me, but he's gotten used to my anime and stuff.

What do your parents/siblings think about Pokemon?
My parents remember the gameboy games and when I used to watch the show. I'm not really sure what they think of it. And, I don't have any siblings.

Re: What do your parents/siblings think about Pokemon?
My parents think it's childish, and my Dad especialy thinks that I should get out of the Pokemon fandom and into competetive sports. He was the one who first broke my Blue version and my only ever Mew and completed Dex.
