I was wondering something. What if there was a more mature pokemon series or movie that targeted a higher age group? I think that there is some potential seeing as the pokemon fight each other and technically every "Team" is a terrorist organization that they could put more mature content into it.

Pokemon is so old now that a lot of people who grew up loving it are now either adults or teens, like myself, and still love their pokemon roots. I understand that you can't hold onto the past and expect a tv show to grow old with you but i think that for even people who never really got into pokemon could come to love a more mature take on it.

What i mean by mature is to just throw some swear words into the mix, add blood to increase the intensity of the fight, and maybe even appeal to some of the many Pokemon romance fandoms. This of course would just give it a more realistic feel to a world that has a lot of fantasy.

I think if they did this they could use the character Red as an older teens from which many people wish they would use instead of the character Ash. I'm sure many people saw the pokemon White and Black 2 trailer in which there is an animated fight scene. Many people said this is what they wish was in the series which i agree because it was an awesome scene.

Although i doubt even with many pleas from fans just like the refusal to make a Pokemon MMO they would still target kids with the show. But regardless what do you think about it?

Eh, I would watch it but I doubt it would be something that serious. I recall Yugioh took on a more mature series with 5d's that I enjoyed. If Pokemon goes towards that route, I might consider watching it I guess.

Well ive been a Pokemon faithful for so long it's crazy. All the games, competing in online tournaments you name it. I have taken a step back from playing the Pokemon games competitively however and just get the games to play casually. Now show wise, i used to watch the show religiously but i couldn't keep on doing so because it really gets annoying how childish it can be. I would give it a try if it was on the serious side, but don't think i would stick with it.

I never watched Pokemon. But your discussion in this way makes me want to...at least a little. I guess I probably couldn't get past the "for kids" aspect though, so something more mature would be interesting indeed.

That said, someone did already start a very similar thread not too long ago, and while that means I need to close your thread, I do hope you'll add your thoughts to that existing thread, and bring some life back to it.
