Re: Do your friends know you like Pokemon?
Most of my friends know that I like it however not all of them play the games themselves. I have recently been playing BW2 at lunch with someone and some of my other friends want the game. It's not really that weird to like Pokemon here in Oregon though. Most people are pretty laidback about things.
I also got someone to replay Blue version recently, and at multiple other times have gotten people who have never played the games before to play them with me.
