I've heard of it happening, but it's not pokemon-exclusive. It happens for people who like Yu Gi Oh! and Beyblades and other shows made for children that also have adult fandoms, and for just about anything else enjoyed only by a small group of people. People mock those who are different from them, and the fact is that the average teenager doesn't like pokemon. If you really care what they think, then give up liking pokemon or hide it. If they cause you any physical or financial harm because of it, then get legally involved. If they tease you or ban you from their little club for it, then ignore them- they're entitled to their opinion, and you're entitled to yours.

hell I get teased for it all the time. But now I've gotten all my friends hooked so they don't tease any of us nearly as much.

What really annoys me most about thats people isn't the fact that they pick on people for no reason, but that they use the word "gay" as an insult, as if there was anything wrong with it. That just shows that they are complete ignoramuses.

I used to play Pokemon without telling my friends, Then I discovered they played Pokemon without telling me. So now we play Pokemon together!

"Judging" is a complicate word, with a complicated meaning. People use different parameters to judge others, so let's forget about this part.

Usually, people at the age of 18, 19, 20 and so on, dislike Pok

Back when the games were a year or two old I guess is when people started making fun. I guess they saw it as since there were no more "new games", the phenomenon was over. I agree about the point of Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh, It must be in the eye of the beholder...

Wow, just, wow. It's interesting to note some of the people that enjoy these tabooed activities are usualy more mature and intelegent than the group that made the activity taboo. Its also interesting to note that most of these activities require more intelectual skills than what the mockers possess. Ever seen an idiot with a powerfull Pokemon team? Ever seen a moron with a skillfully crafted TCG deck? Of course not. They are too busy being "cool" to invest the time, effort, and thought into these things.

Most grownups and "mature" people live in a groove of maturity that is kinda like:"Pokemon are for persons without a life and brainwash people(my mom says that all the time about almost every cartoon or video game) and on that note only children to the age of 10,11 or 12 without a clear understanding of life should enjoy these things without being brainwashed and becoming losers".I just despise people with such a missunderstanding of anything fictionall,and don`t get me started on those exremely holy people that think pokemon are demons and are Satan`s helpers or something.I would realy like to know what opinnion on this did pope John Paul II have.Pokemon hating is a social problem.Every time I start talking about something poke-related infront of my best friend he just starts to mock me because of the prejudice he has towards Pokemon.And also what`s all that nonesense about {jynx} being a racist stereotype.I honestly think people are to obsesed with racial questions.Other animes also have these problems(Mr. Popo in Dragonball Z),they should just stop hating each other,and if {jynx} was intended as a joke it is not racist.Just because the anime is not that violent that does not mean Pokemon are all that unserious-{cubone} `s mother,{pidgey} eating {caterpie},those are all very serious things,{kyogre} and {groudon} also.Let me just say i fell sorry for all those spitefull grownups and mature teenagers that don`t thow the meaning of the word "Fun" and their greatest passtime in life is geting drunk,smoking,doing drugs or "enjoying (the boring and stresfull) life".There... I`ve said it all.I hope I made a point.

You guys have seriously made you points. I didn't know that there was that much anti-pokemon stuff in our society. I do agree about how it seems that the smart ones know how to play the games and the people who make fun of them are too stupid to do so (or to even go out and buy one...). I hope that this anti- poke stuff dies down someday because were here just to have fun, not to be made fun of, am I right?

If people where to actually play the games this could all change, people whould stop hating it out of ignorance as the do now, they may still dislike it, but at least then they would have a reason. There would be no unjustified prejudice towards Pok

Isnt it sad how the human race was made? Were bound to all die in that circle of hatred Galar mentioned. i myself have never been bullied from liking pokemon, but ive just gotten out of grade school, and 3 of my friends still play the pokemon games. I agree with you guys a ton on this all: It has to stop. Humans should act as an ecosystem: Everything working in a system that in the end makes things grow.

I have had people tell me that im a bit to old to like pokemon and I need to grow up.

I always reply with .......................*Censored* K*SS MY A** .

I don't take much from people. After I get ticked off ........I start swinging.

Im totally with you!

well, here how i live, men get so disturbed for so many reasons under the term gay!!!!

Ive been called by the term gay by my own old 'friends' just for liking pokemon! they'd just beat you up for liking pokemon.

Other 'gay' judging (in my case) is when i get close a girl, or my girlfriend i talk very romantic, we hug and stuff you shouldn't know, and they just judge you 'gay' because you're hot (hehe! :P ) and they're just completely jeulous (Sp?) that you are attractive with girls and begin nonsense and stupid coments that then ruin you for the next 3 or 4 years (it happened to me for 3 years...good my dad was transferred to usa...and i found out that this nonsense didn't happen here, so it stopped, and began to raise this year because of my friend that was leaving, but i controlled, and said a bunch of stuff to them, i began comments about them, and they will just say sorry, and theyll stop...do this...for experience!!)
