This is a recurring trend I've seen in gamers, they 'mature' out of certain games then a few years later they usually wake up, actually mature a little bit and realize it's okay to like things your friends may or may not.
Usually it occurs around the 18-25 year timespan (and no it isn't a coincidence that is the PS360's main audience). They play video games because they are cool and fun from introduction to adolesence, then they have to play 'mature' sex blood drugs gore games until they actually grow up and decide which games to actually play on their own and not let others decide for them. Happened to me (a little younger, I was 15-16 when I quit the kiddy console games and played only PC for a few years - then I realized that I was missing out on some awesome stuff by being narrow-minded)
What I'm trying to say is: is Pokemon for everyone? No, but it's a damn good RPG with a lot of depth and amazing replayability. Yes its in a 'kiddie' wrapper, that just means it's okay to play even if kids are around not that they will get all of the depth (hint: they'll grow into it, then out of it, then into it again :) )
