A very interesting news report on Pokemon from 1999. I cringed when I heard the psychiatrist saying that the main point of Pokemon is violence.

1) I still remember owning that Pikachu when I was a kid :DDDDD

2) Screw ignorant professional opinion: Pokemon is about friendship, adventure and improving, not senseless violence.

3) Also, Pokemon would not be a fad for a few years. This is one of the biggest cash cow Nintendo has ever had in their possession, especially in recent times. It's not dying out anytime soon, especially since adults who grew up in the 90s, older teens who were kids in the 2000s, and even the newest generation are still into Pokemon.

I remember when I lived in Mexico, as a kid, I heard on a lot of news programs and parents saying that 'Dragon Ball Z' and 'Pokemon' were made by the devil, so kids everywhere could worship him...

I also remember every adult saying that DBZ and Pokemon would hopefully disappear after 1 or 2 years.

About the time I got into it to, game helped me through some tough times growing up with family problems etc. Turning on and playing and everything was alright again. Then you got that psychiatrist;

'in my opinion parents should not let their kids watch pokemon, play pokemon, buy pokemon cards, have anything to do with pokemon what so ever'

I hope at some point in her life she got punched right in the chops.

I love Pokemon, but I can't get over the fact that it basically legalized cockfights.

The nostalgia.. I had like over 500 Pokémon cards. No, probably even more. I was very obsessed with this.

Edit: In fact I still am just a little bit. Just the other day I was thinking about buying some cards again because I gave away all my cards when I thought that I was becoming too old. Laughable isn't it? I want them whatever it takes now, but they are way harder to find I tell ya' (Atleast in my country)
