1. Pokémon is loosely based off of one of those card games and those never work well as a video game or as a cartoon. 2. Every Pokémon game is the same. Gotta catch em all! 3. Pokémon keep getting more stupid looking as time goes on. The Pokémon designers must be running out of ideas for new Pokémon so they just make up really silly stuff. The last Pokémon I saw was a donkey mixed with a short bus that breathed toxic fumes. 4. Pokémon seem to be sentient beings yet they are kept trapped in those little red balls. This is basically slavery. 5. Pokémon are forced to fight each other in battles which resemble cock and dog fights. Good job Nintendo. Is this what we want to teach our children?
