Well if I still had time in my life, I would still be playing the Pokemon games. The last one I completed was X for 3Ds, I bought Sun but never had enough time to finish playing it. I started with Blue for Gameboy Color, I also have Silver, Crystal, (Pokemon Stadium I & II for N64), Ruby (my best team), Saphire, FireRed (my 2nd best team), LeafGreen, Emerald, (Colosseum & Gale of Darkness for Gamecube), Diamond (my 3rd best team), Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, SoulSilver, (Pokemon Battle Revolution for Wii), Black & White. I had the Super Smash games too, Pikachu and Jigglypuff were my best characters in the N64 version, Melee it was Mewtwo, and Brawl it was Pokemon Trainer Charizard and Lucario. If I was still playing Pokemon games I wouldn't be on here sadly, only have time for one of them and HP has won over in that.

Not really doing this for the HPD, just wanted to write my old love for Pokemon XD

I really love the theme song of Pokemon - I can still remember it word for word about 20 years later. Does that count? xD

I used to watch pokemon as a kid but never played any of the games until pokemon go. xD Which I still play cuz I can hit stops while riding the bus to/from work haha

On the show, pikachu was probably my favorite but I also liked meowth.

My favorite po go pokemon is probably lapras cuz I finally found one last fall after playing for 4+ years. xD

I never really got into Pokemon until Pokemon Go. My sister got into it much earlier and played some games on the 3DS :P She's still the expert as far as I'm concerned. But I do have my personal favorite, which is Snorlax. Snorlax is my spirit animal and I have a bit of an obsession with him. Always xD

As someone who loves to hoard critters, Pokemon suits me wonderfully. I love games that let you collect different species/animals :P

When I was a kid Burger King did this partnership with Pokemon where the kid's toys were these fake gold or silver Pokemon figures. I really liked it because it brought the Pokemon to life instead of them just being flat characters on a screen.Β 

A lot of my middle school students still battle and trade Pokemon cards, so it's still really popular!

I've been into Pokemon since it hit the states. Started out with a green GameBoy Color with Red and Blue. I've played almost all of the video games and have been collecting the cards off and on since the 90s. My favorite Pokemon is Gengar and I love it so much I got it tattooed on my back playing a green GameBoy!

I've only ever played PoGo. Never owned a GameBoy, so have never played the original games.Β 
Only ever seen a few episodes of the anime and have seen 'Detective Pikachu'.
Never played the TCG but have a few cards just because.
Don't own any merch.

What I love about PoGo is seeing new places around the world (I "spoof") and collecting Pokemon. I'm interested in as high CP as possible. I also love reading the info about the different 'Mon.

Pokemon has always been a social event for me. Started with Gold while one of my brothers had Silver. We kept with the opposite title releases up until they switched over to DS since I never bought one :P I've actively played PoGo since it came out with a whole squad (just did the event last Saturday!). I participate in my area's discord group. xD I ended up purchasing a Switch just to play Lets Go! Eevee and ended up getting Sword. It's been such a fun activity to play with friends.


I have no idea what the Pokemon in the center is. Can anyone tell me? :D

Loved Pokemon as a kid! My brother and I used to watch the tv show and play the games on the GameBoy and even tried to collect all the cards. Never really got into battling with the cards, but we wanted to "catch em all". Never even came close! xD I love playing Pokemon Go now, even more so now since our apartment corners a Gym so I can get all the gifts to give to friends and participate in raids and all that fun stuff.
