Throughout the five generations, somewhere around 20-22 main-series titles have been released, as well as extras like the Myster Dungeon and Pinball games. This started with Red and Green, and is leading now with Black 2 and White 2.
Unsurprsingly, many people here are butthurt and hold the first two of these Generations, Red (J), Green (J), Red, Blue,Yellow, Gold, Silver, and Crystal as the highest and superior game because they are too ignorant to accept the games that have come around for over a decade. They are known as "Gewunners."
Joe: Seriously? L0l only gen 1 is good all rest of Pokemon is g4y l0l y0l0 swag.
Bob: Come on, man, why do you gotta be a Genwunner? Just try it out...
Many consider it to be quite childish. Sure, the games and such are directed to a young demographic, but many teenagers and adults play it as well. There's even an entire Cheezburger website dedicated to Pokemon-themed image memes and videos!
2. The creatures in the Pokémon games themselves. Notable examples include Pikachu, Jigglypuff, and Squirtle.
The word is often misspelled "Pokemon", without the accent on the E. It's often spelt like this because most North American keyboards do not have an "é" key, just an "e".
Person B: Lol, fag. Final Fantasy is better.
Person A: (stunned look)
2. Pokémon are fictional animals created for the Pokémon video game series. As of January 2012, there are 649 (!) Pokémon, from Bulbasaur to Genesect.
But no dumbass ever did.
You're 20 and still into Pokemon. And I'm not talking about that crap they show on TV. I'm talking the real deal: The actual shit. Blue and Red, but you always wanted Red to compensate for that holographic Charizard you never had.
So you look back and smile, and remember that you lived in that time.
You kicked ass with your Pokemanz. You still do, and you're not afraid to admit it because you're still into that kind of shit you were eight years ago.
Person 2: Of course I do!
