Just thought i'd remake that one thread that's been brought up countless times in General Pokémon out of curiosity, since the last one was made over a year ago.

Do your IRL friends know you play Pokémon?

Mine don't, except for three or four of them who are my good friends and I know they won't judge me. x3 Judging by where I live, if I told people I played Pokémon i'd probably get made fun of so much. xD

My old ones do. The ones I went to middle school with.

These high school friends hate Pokemon a lot.

Only 1 friend of mine still plays Pokemon. But that's all I need, we battle-subway together and get really into creating winning teams and raging at 100% hit-rate Blizzards and such

A good portion of us still play the R/S/E games, but no one around here really plays B/W2.

Myself, included.

I know a lot of people that do play, but I know even more people that still think it's a game for 5 year olds. >_<

I know quite a few people who still play it, yeah. xD Pretty much all of my closest friends irl both know I play it and still play it themselves, so yeah. If I see someone talking about it or playing it or something, I usually drop a hint too.

I've only ever mentioned it in passing, so they likely don't care that I play Pokemon.

Only two of my friends has an interest in Pokemon as well as myself.
I still find it weird how all these jocks at my school play Pokemon. They keep asking to trade with me, since we used to play Pokemon together and now they think I don't play it at all. D:

    Nope, they do not. I am in uni now and everyone is like "OMG I LOOOOOOOOVE POGEYMAWN" then they're like "psssssh, the first 150 are the only good ones". So, I prefer not to talk about it.

My friends most certainly know I play Pokémon, you shouldn't feel embarrassed to tell your friends what you like. If your friends can't accept you for your interests, then screw them.
That being said, I know a couple of my friends play Pokémon also, but I've never played with them.

If your friends will make fun of you for playing certain games, you should re evaluate who you think your friends are.

I'm pretty open about this. I can't think of anybody who doesn't know. Even my wife plays the games too. Not as much as me, but she does.
