    Ok so I don't have kids yet, and it's probably a long way down the road, but I like to plan ahead for when I do. One thing I've been thinking of is when I'm going to introduce them to Pokémon (what age) and how I'm going to do it. What do you guys think? When and how would you do it?

    Huh, I've never thought about this before. To be honest I'd probably just give them a Pokémon game at the ripe old age of 10 and see if they like it. I wouldn't want to force something they don't have an interest in onto them, but come on, who wouldn't like Pokémon?! :D

    Ah, introducing the next generation to Pokémon. A vital task we must all take up. Yeah, I don't want to force it on my (non-existent, because I'm not getting married/having kids) kids if they don't like it, but I got introduced quite early and I think I'd just slap a DS in their hands and let nature take it's course. As long as they don't lay claim to MissingNo (cuz dat Glitch is MINE) I'll be fine with whatever they do!

    I agree, I plan not to have kids but if I did have them around I wouldn't want to start tooo early, or too late, and I wouldn't want to be too forceful about it. I think if you already have the kid though you'd know them well enough to know if they are interested in videogames at all or not first.

    Like what most people have said, I'll most likely not have kids, but I would probably give them a game around 10 (and give me Platinum. That one's amazing). And then see if they like it. If not, oh well, I guess... :cry:

    Future ki-kids? Well, the thought made me blush a little... But, yeah, I'd introduce Pokémon to them when they're about 10-12 years old, something like that. I'll show them the very first episode of Pokémon. And, after that, it's up to them if they like it or not...?

    I'm not planning kids, buuuuuut
    If I did, they'd probably find out about it at a young age due to the fact that I'd still be playing/watching it! X'D

    I'm not interesting in having kids either, but I'd probably hand them a Pokémon plushie (something like a starter) and if they really liked that toy, then at the age of 9 I'd buy them a DS and see how they liked the games. I might also let them watch the anime first just to let them test the waters.

    It's a popular franchise, I'm probably just gonna let mine discover it for themselves.

    I mean, everybody here doesn't seem to be planning in having kids, and I'm just going to say the same thing. Although I don't think there should be a set age for them to discover it. I think they'd discover Pokémon at a pretty young age like I did, perhaps even younger due to the fact that I play Pokémon games, watch the anime, and create fake cards for TCG.

    I wouldn't want to force them to like it though, so it's going to be up to them on whether or not they're going to like it or not. Not like I'm planning on having multiple kids, but you never know

    I'm, uh, ha ha, n-not having kids any time soon... or ever... but if I were to try and introduce them to the series, It would be introduced fairly early. I'd give them a 3DS with a fresh copy of the newest game in the series and see where it takes them.

    I started at age 5, so I don't think there is a real set age for them to start with. Maybe it would be good if they can read first though.
