Ya till the very dark end of the greatest video games ever made.
Pokemon is one of those few things in the world that you cant be to young or old to play and enjoy it.
Iv been thought alot with it from the glory days where it was so populer any thing that had the words pokemon on it was banned from school and when we had our schools own E-4 and man those where the days.
Now only me and one of my friends that i had to move away from still plays all others have been sucked into shooter.
But still im here till the end if i dont make it ill be 6-feet under with the last game that comes out till im alive.
probly will be a nintendo fan boy with games such as pokemon,zelda,mario,super smash bros,earthbound/mother and so meny toher great games that games that the only thing you do is kill can not ever replace.
I was in 10th grade when Pokemon hit the US (really dating myself here), and to date, I haven't found another game I can use to satisfy my OCD the same way except WoW, and I think I've finally kicked that habit for good (says the realm first Light of Dawn who hasn't actually canceled his account or cataclysm pre-order yet). If only to ensure that five expansions down the road I'm not still raiding twenty hours a week and obsessing over server first heroic kills, I HAVE to keep playing pokemon.
Besides, it'll always be around. It's a Nintendo core property that's making money. Even having entire development houses pack up and leave doesn't stop them from continuing series less profitable than Pokemon, even if it means making the same game for ten years, then remaking them all from the start, then following it up with the same game except now you have a boat, they'll keep making them. It's what Nintendo does best.
im 15 yr old boy who might be going out with another girl who plays pokemon and i still do also. i think its a cool concept with some pretty amazing graphics and music. i also love it cause it brings back great memories of my better childhood...
I intend on playing even after the franchise ends... and then get the rights to the title off of nintendo and continue the saga.
I wondered if parents will stay with Pokemon, with their children being around. That being said, I think I might not stay forever, because sometimes a break is needed to cure the Pokemon fever, and because new information on Pokemon is really tantalising. (And no, I am not a parent)
