    Default Are you a hardcore Pokemon fan?

    I take Pokemon quite seriously because there is few other franchises I enjoy I and devote most of my time to Pokemon and I also battle competitively. So yes, I am a hardcore Pokemon fan.

    Edit: I consider a Hardcore Pokemon fan someone who has been around from the beginning, someone who battles competitively, or someone who considers Pokemon as their favorite series and devotes the most time to it. Either of the 3.

    I play Pokemon moderately serious. I do strategies to some extent when it comes to moves and Pokemon types, but that's as far as I'd go with tactics. As for Pokemon, I'd just catch the Pokemon I like, not really for their stats, but I will admit, sometimes I have captured a Pokemon for my team because of how good it's stats are.

    I consider myself a hardcore fan, since I've been around it pretty much all my life. Too lazy for competitive, though I'm good at metagame in general. I collected Pokédolls at one point. If it is related to Pokémon, chances are I'll be all over it.

    I consider myself a casual fan. Ive never really been into competitive stuff and enjoy playing the games purely for fun, and enjoy talking about it on sites like this. I also collect some Pokemon merchandise, but that's about it.

    I've been a fan since I first got into it in 1998 or so (Generation I).

    However, I play recreationally and competitive battling isn't something I'm interested in.

    Depends on what you think makes a 'hardcore fan', which I think is hard to define. If you mean someone who's been there since Gen 1, seen every generation start, and who's pretty much been there, done that, then no. I wasn't there; I'm fairly new to Pokémon, especially when you don't consider the time I played LeafGreen as actual experience because I was really young. But if your definition is someone who loves the games genuinely and plays competitively (or at least tries), and is interested in knowing the ins and outs of the underlying mechanics of the game, then yes. Yes I am.

    I play Pokémon a lot (always in-game) and I spend a lot of time on Pokémon forums or looking for Pokémon pictures around the internet.
    Also, most of the tracks recorded on my last.fm are musics from Pokémon games.

    ...So yeah, I guess I am a hardcore fan.

    I don't think I am since I don't give two flying pigs about competitive battling and don't care what nature I get when I breed Pokemon and stuff.

    Although I am a hardcore Lugia fan with an entire folder dedicated to pictures of this guy. And my music folder is generally empty except for that "Lugia's Song-The Legend Comes to Life" in there and a bunch of midis of it.
    No.

    Default Re: Are you a hardcore Pokemon fan?

    I devote alot of time to Pokemon and I have to admit is IS my favorite franchise so yeah I guess I am. I'm not too all into competitive battles, but I have almost all the games and play them almost everyday of the week, been a fan since 1998 , watch the anime weekly and collect merch. I'm constantly talking about Pokemon online and offline through the 6 forums I go, Facebook and with friends/family. So I personally call myself a hardcore fan but some may not, it depends on their definition of hardcore.

    If you were to ask me about 15 years ago, I'd say yes. But I stopped somewhere in Gen 3, but then got back to it in Gen 4 but not with the same enthusiasm as I used to. I'm on the verge of dropping it again.

    I wouldn't say I was. Since I'm still relatively young, I wasn't there to witness the beginning of the Pokemon era, or the first games, which apparently you had to have played to be a "hardcore" fan. Sure, I'm still collecting games now, and I have been since the release of Ruby, but I don't pay much attention to the competitive aspects of the game, nor the technical parts like EV training, breeding etc.

    But then again, I do spend a lot of time playing Pokemon, I own a lot of Pokemon merch, I talk about and research Pokemon a lot, so I guess I might just be a casual fan. But hardcore? No, I wouldn't say I am.

    Yes, since Pokémon is my favorite franchise, and I have a mental database of Pokémon info. On my 3DS, my highest played title is PMD Explorers of Darkness, and I've invested 90 hours into Emerald.

    Greninja(Frubble),Simisage(Sage),Charizard(Flamey)Aurorus(Aurora),Aerodactyl(Aeron),Lucario(Anubis)
    Y Team:
    Chesnaught(Chip),Talonflame(Arrow),Blastoise(Typhoon),Meowstic(Kit),Tyrantrum(Tiny),Avalugg(Bergster )
