Why the Pokemon Profile Pictures on Facebook?

I'm confused, why are so many people posting pokemon as their profile pictures on facebook?
Isn't pokemon for little kids and old?
Most of the people in my school have their profile pictures changed, they're all pokemon characters now.
Why now, and why pokemon?

There is an event called, "Change your profile picture to your favorite pokemon!" or something like that and its going on till the end of december.
You pick your favorite pokemon and make it your profile pic. Its a Generation Y thing.
There's something called Pokemon Profile Picture Month, it used to have its own page in wikipedia but now it's deleted. Anyway it's a silly internet thing, you change your profile pic for a pokemon.

None of my friends on facebook have got pokemon as their profile pic.

Frankie, you're lucky none of your friends have pokemon as their profile pics, because that would make me think less of you.

Show me your pokeemanz?
Frankie, it's obvious you haven't had any friends who changed their profile pic to Pokemon profile pictures. That would require you having friends on facebook.

^ Lol. Pokemon is for all ages, don't make fun of the pokemon >;O Pokemon profile pic!

Frankie's actually in the Pokemon closet. When he says 'it's a gen Y thing' he means, 'i love it but I'm afraid to admit it'. You know that this is true. So come clean, Frankie. You have nothing to hide here. The internet will be accepting of you, however you feel about Pokemon.

Haha. Frankie doesn't got any friends, his life consists of him sitting on his bed, trying to catch the Pokemon.

I see this every year on Facebook and I don't understand why. All of a sudden, everyone changes their profile picture to some Pokemon character, have no idea what's going on.
