That maybe true but it didn't stop them from pumping out a game each 1 or 2 or 3 years. I was in Grammar school when I first learned about about the pokey man, never like it and never will.

I know a girl who thinks it's one of the best animes she's ever seen, and she's seen a lot.

Weird.

I have no fucking idea though, never liked the Pokemon animes myself. I fucking loved the games when I was smaller though. But after the 3rd gen I fucking gave up because nothing had bloody changed.

I liked the 3rd generation, but indeed after that things got rapidly worse, with as rock bottom that new one that's basically a floating gear.

Without the nostalgia filter, the show -- new and old episodes alike -- is terrible. But then, I'm not its target audience; of course I wouldn't like it.
The games are addictive and challenging though, and the right mixture of both at that.

Many of us are born in the early 90's I suppose. Which means we either was introduced to the game or TV show when we we're little kids. Personally I didn't know what Pokémon was before I saw the show as a kid, and admittedly it is a pretty cool kids show, and I remember it be less bland then what the show is today. Then I was introduced to the games, and that just made me love the franchise even more.

Then I grew older stopped watching the TV show, lost my gameboy and just remembered Pokémon as something great from my childhood. Then I found the manga, and it was to my surprise really good, and so began a new found love for Pokémon.

But I guess I more fond of the games and the manga than the bland TV show.

p.s The manga is ridiculously violent for having the name "pokémon" on it

It was a staple of a lot of childhoods that never really died.

Subconsciously it might be something about our past that we can cling on to like a drowning man.

But in present text, it's just kind of fun.

This cardshop/bar in seattle I go to has these 40 year old men who get together with other 40 year old men that are called "Bronies" and they play with my little pony dolls for like 12 hours straight... in a family establishment... It's fucking disgusting.

Fuck pokemon and their faggotry, I watched robot animals fight to the death instead. I watched Zoids!

Nah, I loved the death out of pokemon until I grew out of it. I think pokemon are becoming somewhat "hipster" because they are almost the defining cartoon of kids in the mid 90's, yet their old enough to not be "mainstream." Everybody knows what Pokemon are, but not everybody watches it like they did as a kid.

It's not Newgrounds, it's the internet.
A lot of people like myself grew up with that shit and a ton of kids are playing them today (I still play it).

There's also quite a bit of material to make parodies of.

Never too old for pokemon.

Never.

Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

I'm not obsessed with it. I play the games sometimes but, not often. I know someone that still watched the Pokémon anime. He's 14.
