I have mixed emotions towards it, and wanted to see what other REAL pokemon fans thought about it.

Of course. Love to see who I know also does it.
Made this just for it.

Nope. I've never had a Facebook picture that isn't me at one point or another and I don't particularly intend to, but I am working on one for bulbagarden. :3

Am I missing something here? Why December specifically?

But in answer to the question: Nope. I only use photos of myself for my profile picture on FB.

I don't see a reason to do it, because there's no reason to tell everyone I am a Pokemon fan.

Asking Topic Leader too: why December specifically?

Thanks for reading.

@winstein @Hush

This is an ongoing thing that's been happening for years. I don't think anyone knows who started it but it's common knowledge that December is the month to make a Pokemon your profile picture. I've been doing it every year for the past 3-4 years.

Yeah I do it. At midnight on the 1st I switched over to a Volcarona cause that's my favorite. I think in a few days I'll find another picture of it and switch to that. I believe I switched to like 5 different Pokemon over the course of the month, judging by my profile pictures album, haha. But now I'm firmly obsessed with Volcarona so I'll just use a bunch of badass pictures of him.

I rarely ever go on Facebook, so no. Even if I used Facebook regularly, I don't think I'd do it due to having only one or two people on my Friends List knowing what Pokémon is, and recognising that it's not just for "kids".

Eh, I do have a Pokemon in my FB picture, but it's not the main image in the picture, and I changed it late November, so it wasn't intentional.
But, interesting tradition, nonetheless.

Not really I haven't ever thought of doing that tbh. I am a real Poke fanatic, but prefer to keep Facebook for well Facebook XD

Edit: Although I do link Pokemon related sites like this one to it all the time ^^

I did last year; I had a great beastly heracross on my profile. I haven't done it this year yet, though.

I do it every year and love it! It's usually the only time each year that my profile pic isn't of myself.

I haven't... but I might just do so now. Hold on a second... yeah, it's up. Tornadus, actually. Did it last year with Hydregion, and the only reason I didn't do it immediately this year was because I hadn't had my profile picture as myself in a while and wanted to keep it up longer. Still, I think it's fun, and I don't mind everyone seeing - all my friends already know I'm a Pokemon nut.

I do, even though I don't really spend time on Facebook much. Mine this year is Infernape. It was a hard choice between Infernape and Serperior for me. Last year it was Pikachu!
