Playing Pokemon X and Y as an adult is an interesting experience

Playing Pokemon X and Y in your mid 20s isn’t the same as it was playing Pokemon Red and Blue as a 10-year-old. (3DS, Pokemon X and Y)

I still enjoy Pokemon games now that I'm no longer 10. I just enjoy them for different reasons I guess.

Of course it's not going to be the same experience as when you were nothing 10. You're an adult, you perceive the world in a different view and see things in games differently (maybe understand some underlying jokes you would never have understood back then).

I'm in my mid twenties too and I still love pokemon and for a completely different reason than when I was 10 but it still doesn't change how much I like it. I love playing older games that I played because I can see things I never noticed as a kid or read a line of text I never understood before but is now hilarious (Final Fantasy is a prime example of this).

Playing Pokemon when I was 10 is of course a different experience from. When I was ten I put all the work into one Pokemon. Swampert. It was level 80 and I kept failing the elite four. Now I play for the best possible team combination or Nuzlocke.
the pokemon games are more complex than anyone who played them as a kid would have thought. it easy to play as a 10yr old and eventually beat the elite four and the champion, but when you playing against a team of pokemon that are all level 100 you have to know every thing about the pokemon you see and how your moves are going to effect it before you attack . your pokemon has to have a balanced move list that can take down almost any pokemon it goes up against, and if you lead off pokemon goes down you have to be ready with a pokemon that is just as powerful and balance as your lead off pokemon, but is capable of taking out the pokemon that took down your first pokemon. as hard as all that is you have to choose the best hold items for all your pokemon.
