    okay so most people that i know wont tell their friends at school that they play pokemon, so i decided to start this to see if your friends(outside of pokemon) know. I dont tell people at first because well, i only tell my close friends. so everytime school starts in september and i dont tell what i did in summer, i get heck from my dad, cause i didnt say "oh, i went to hawaii to plau some POKAYMANZ" but all my close friends know that i play. and also my dad ends up telling random people that i was in a tourney.


    sometimes i get ticked off but whenever i go to a tournament in the states, they dont send us in cause, terrorists dont play pokemon

    Most of my friends from Elementary know through one way or another, so I don't try to lie about it (except to my teachers lol), however, nor do I bring it up (like go to school and say "HEY GUYS, I WON POKEMON STATES!!!").

    I don't bring it up often, but yeah most people at my school know.
    And whenever someone trie to make fun of me for it, they usually just end up embarassing themselves anyways.

    My friends know. Some of them vaguely know how to play and I'll make decks for them with their favorite Pokemon and stuff and we'll battle over summer when things get boring. A few of my friends are gamers so some of them play the video games too. Luckily all us late teen/early twenty-somethings basically allll played/had something to do with Pokemon way back in elementary school so most people know of it at least anyway. I don't brag about accomplishments because, well I haven't accomplished anything.

    I tell people that I play and if they try to make fun of me for it, I just say that my brother won a thousand dollar scholarship off pokemon and they just walk away.

    i'm in a liberal arts college, so people are a lot more accepting of hobbies like pokemon than they might be in high school. and judging by the pokemon merchandise overwhelming my dorm room, i would say a lot of people know haha. :]

    Yeah, my friend and I are VG freaks about the game, constantly discussing PO success, failures, etc. plus I wear hats, shirts, and even my Cities Medal sometimes. Everyone knows I play.
