There is a trend in society that does actually force the inclusion of a newer class of people known as "kidults". I'm pretty sure it's obvious by name. The fact that people play the pokemon tcg deon't really surprise me, though. The game does have its depth, and it's something that the parent and child can bond to.

So no, it's not creepy. It's just a part of society.

i often find that adults play games like yugioh and magic the gathering, probably for more serious monsters, but it's all in the same bag for me.

Adults play M:TG (Still, even adults can't beat my revised Sneak Attack deck without any less than a Black Lotus), adults play Yu-Gi-oh!, why not Pogeymanz TCG?

Inverted: lol, landstill would kill that. Sneak attack? Force of Will. Oh you have a handful of fatties. Meet standstill. Meet my factory beating you down. XD

And seriously, I don't think there is such thing as "too cute", if adults/kidults are picking up this anime business.

I play for cash, betting and stuff... same with YuGiOh... and I've played against adults, and I don't think it matters, there's nothing wrong. Adults can play, just like kids can play.

I dont play the tcg, but if you think bout it, who cares? It really doesnt matter. Its just a little card game. Its like playing uno. You wouldnt think its creepy to see an adult playing that.

Ever been to a card shop? That happens all the time in Magic. Why not in pokemon then? If its fun for kids, fun for teens, and fun for adults, everyone should play. I for one don't find it creepy that people enjoy the same games I enjoy.

I was playing MTG with a couple of kids earlier this week, and one of them was playing something blue with counterspells (stupid new sets) and he just looked at me confusedly whenever I asked, "Force of will?" after playing a spell when he was tapped out.

Everyone should know FoW.

I think that by saying that it is creepy, you are demoralizing pokemon.

It is great that they play it.

Everybody, regardless of age, should play pokemon!

I don't think it's creepy at all. They are doing what they enjoy, what's wrong with that? I personally hope I still enjoy pokemon when I'm 40.

There's nothing much wrong, but I find that Pokemon lacks the depth of strategy that Magic or even Yu-Gi-Oh grants. (Granted, YGO is pretty shallow as well IMO). I probably would play Pokemon TCG when I'm 40, but only if someone asks me to. I won't be actively pursuing it simply because it's more intriguing to competitive battle over Wi-Fi or whatever. :3
