KatzVKatz tells us more.
Hey, I didn't think this would get published, but here it is! Now for some explanations: 1. I did watch Pokemon when I was younger and I liked it. When he dared me to name 10 first gen Pokemon I was sure I could do it ... Guess my memory is not that good, but I already know that :D 2. He did admit eventually that he was sorta kinda joking. I knew he couldn't be serious about dumping me, but he did take the joke a bit too far, like yelling at me and sulking for half an hour. 3. I do take interest in his interests, we talk a lot about the games he plays and the series he watches, and do a lot of stuff together. We do have a lot in common. It's just that where he likes Pokemon to the point of fangirling about it, I'm the same with Harry Potter and Dr. Who. 4. I asked him to name ten spells from Harry Potter and he couldn't do it, so I guess we're even! Ha! :D

I can name 2... And Pokemon was way after me... If you love someone, take an interest in their interests.
Why do some people always have to think Pokemon is childish? Pokemon is a fun game and always has been. Liking the game as a grown person isn't childish, it's just made for all ages to enjoy. But OP's boyfriend is immature for threatening to break up with her for that, not immature for liking Pokemon.
Tell him that if he wants to have a relationship with a real live girl, he needs to grow up.
FYL, who cares if you can't name pokemon, if you love them and they love you.... why does pokemon even matter?
Ok he's blowing things way out of proportion. That's a pretty stupid reason to want to dump someone. That being said, I do agree with the person who said to take an interest in your partners interests. Even if it is something you wouldn't normally care one bit about, try taking some interest simply because they do.
Even though I thumbed them up, I can see why they'd be down-voted by some. I like Pokemon all on my own (I love playing the video games and card game), but there's no way I could name ten of them without honestly racking my brain. I just don't have that sort of dedication because Pokemon names aren't a high priority for me. So while I agree with the idea that you should take interest in your partner's interests, there's no reason to assume that she refuses to be/just isn't interested in Pokemon just because her boyfriend is immature. Breaking up with someone because they can't name Pokemon is something a little kid would do in their "relationships".
