Is playing Pokémon too childish?

I am a 17 year old girl and still play Pokémon :$ hehehe alright. anyways, I wonder if I should be more secret about it or something, I feel like people might think it is weird or childish and I was wondering about opinions.

  • Roses are red, violets are blue. If you were a Pokemon, I’d choose you.

    Are you a Pikachu? Because you are shockingly beautiful.

    I think I need a Paralyze Heal, because you’re stunning.

    You remind me of Deoxys, you’re out of this world.

    You’re such a good catch. I think I’ll use my only Master Ball on you.

  • Nope. If I had time I'd play Pokemon.

    The issue is the fact that I play to dominate, and if I can't invest the time needed to dominate, then it's not worth playing.

    When XY came out, I felt like a 39 year old athlete. The glory days were over, and the dedication it took to play at a high level was not feasible.

    So really, it's not childish. People just lose their spare time to other obligations and put games like Pokemon on the back burner.

    In fact I was looking for someone to battle but no one on this website seems to play it. Do you do ORAS or XY?

    Anyway, I dont think that its childish. The game mechanic is as complex as chess. People think that its easy and that you only need to select attacks, but no, there's a lot more to it.

    • high five yeee! no, I am currently playing a fanmade version on PC, it is called Pokemon Insurgence. (you can actually catch them all like all 700-something wahh) I don't have the new ones, only until heart gold and soul silver, hahah :[]

  • Any hobby a person doesn't share can seem childish or dumb to others. I can't tell you how many boring women I have met that have no hobbies at all, because they are worried about being seen as childish. At least you aren't so boring that you have to depend on your man to entertain you all the time. That gets old real quick. Embrace your hobbies and interests, and you will end up being far more interesting than a lot of other women, that become absolute bores as they worry about being seen as childish.

  • Once you grow old enough, you realize there isn't really anything that's "too childish", just things that you don't like.

  • I don't think it's childish. You like it, be happy about playing it. I still enjoy watching "Arthur" on PBS kids sometimes. Brings back some nice memories.

  • There's nothing childish about doing something you enjoy
    if other people call it childish, it's because they don't understand.

    You aren't truly alive, if you cannot call yourself a child.

  • Pokemon will always be great... too many good childhood memories to feel otherwise lol. But the original 250, or so, were BY FAR the best...

  • Do what you like and don't worry about what others think. You aren't the only 17-year-old who likes Pokemon.

    People may think it's strange, but you shouldn't care about that, because everyone has a "weird side".

  • It depends what pokemon game you play. If it's a classic gem like Crystal, I could understand that. But the new games are made for 5 year olds it seems so that's childish.
