I used to have this problem, but then i was standing in line when someone ELSE ran into it, and they looked utterly ridiculous and pathetic from an outsider's perspective. I realized that that must be how i looked whenever i tried to covertly buy a game like "Pokemon" so i just suck it up now and hold my head high. Besides, alot of chicks who are now getting into their 20's go ga-ga for a man who knows his pokemon (well, okay, so i've only met ONE girl who was like that so far, but still it's ONE girl! ) I'm 28 by the way. I was having the "Embarassed" feeling of buying "Pokemon" back when Red/Blue were first being released! I guess you have to realize that, especially now, folks of ALL ages are going out and picking up Diamond/Pearl.
