    Most of my family makes fun of me for liking and playing Pokemon (the only ones that don't are the ones that play too).

    Also my dad makes fun of me for liking Japanese things and my mom makes fun of me because I never read books and play video games and go on the internet instead.

    "Turn of that goddamn f***ing stupid show. Let's watch some Nat Geo."

    "Your Pokémon bullshit is ruining your life."

    "I'm gonna smash your stupid DS."

    "Oh, yeah, you'll make a FORTUNE off of your DS game."

    My dad doesn't get video games, period. He likes LoZ, but otherwise, nothing.

    my mom is pretty ok with my pokemon obsession/love, boarderlining on being supportive, but just so long as i'm not doing anything pokemon/fun instead of college prep shit >:| ugh. I'm just glad that back in the 90s when all that "pokemon is da devilz" craze thing was going around, my mom didn't buy into that and let me have my pokemon (though she did burn my Harry Potter books in the fireplace while i was at school...even though i only had them because i like the look of just having a book and never actually read them -_-)

    My parents aren't all that fond of my Pokémon hobby, but it's not too extreme.

    My siblings make fun of my obsession with Ash, and my dad doesn't like Pokémon.

    it shouldnt matter to others of wat someone likes because of their age....liking something or a hobby shouldnt be an embarrassment, it should be gift. sadly, 3/4 of the world thinks "pokemon is for 9 year olds, being smart is nerdy, watever is popular in the world of clothing is wat everyone else should be wearing, and new music about sex, drugs, and alcohol is good music".............y cant ppl just ppl be who they want to be, and not be scared about wat others will think. it drives me insane because my family thinks im insane for liking stuff like pokemon yet its just another video game series like mario, yet mario isnt made fun of. if only the world was different and didnt relay so much on wats popular...

    Luckily, I have an open-minded and understanding family, so it's not a problem. They find it a little weird that I still like Pokémon at my age, but they don't really mind.

    If they don't "get it" they'll understand with a bit of explaining. I get the odd nickname or smirk every so often but in our family little jokes and jabs like that are universal. My parents have always said that they'd rather have me indoors on a computer, playing Pokémon or dressed up like a fictional character if it makes me happy than out on the streets or doing drugs. They're pretty accepting and will often indulge my love of Hello Kitty/Pokémon/anime/manga/gaming when buying me presents - heck, it's my seventeenth birthday now and my mother happily bought me a HK cake and candles (and a new computer to play games on, no less).

    I am well aware of how lucky I am to have an accepting family in this sense.

    Pretty much this. My dad questioned me sometimes why I liked pokemon and I just answer "I find it fun and a good timewaster."

    My brother love pokemon, I know this for a fact. But today I asked him if he wanted to watch the show. He declined, and when I asked him why, he said that his friends think Pokemon is stupid. He is five, and so are his friends. He still likes it but is afraid he will be laughed at.

    My parents don't really care about the fact that I like Pokemon. However, my dad sometimes teases me, but he takes me to GameStop events and stuff. My mom, on the other hand, doesn't like it that much. Whenever I want to buy a new game she says something like, "Another Pokemon game? You have so many. How about you give one away, and then you can buy another one." I have to remind her that they are all different, but she doesn't really care. Both of them think that I play video games waaay too much, even though I rarely play more than two hours a day.

    My family doesn't care. As long as I'm not doing drugs, they're fine.

    My parents are exactly the same. Occasionly I show both of them when Pokemon are evolving, it gives me more satisfaction then them however ahaha.

    i think my parents sometimes think i'm a little weird because i like a lot of different things, and that i always love stuff like hamtaro, hello kitty, etc, but they're pretty used to it by now, especially for Pokémon XD (they all make fun of me at work though ;__; my boss hates Pokémon XD)

    the best part was when my mom got me the Dialga & Palkia DS Lite for my birthday, the guy at the store was like, "oh, he'll love it!" but my mom was like "um, it's for my 18-year old daughter actually ._."
