Okay, i have a vauge idea about it.

But i have seen sooooooo many people saying how glorious it is, and sooo many people who say its shitty.

Can someone please explain what this is actually about?

All i have seen is that yellow creature and the white/red balls.

The main series Pokemon games are turn based RPGs made with the concept of collecting and battling creatures.
There is a typing system to determine strengths and weaknesses of moves used on other Pokemon, which are based around elements and.... uh.. well a bunch of other random stuff like Psychic powers, Fighting and Dragons.

You generally start as a young child who leaves his mom for 3 goals
1. To gather 8 badges from people who use Pokemon of a specific type, known as gym leaders which gain you entry into the Pokemon league
2. defeat a team of villians
3. Catch 'em all (which requires trading through multiple games, but doesn't do anything to the plot, just a 100% kind of thing)

I'd say the biggest appeal is collecting and using the wide variety of Pokemon.

It's an anime and a game and a manga. All about cock fighting but with strange creatures and they don't actually die and it's a national sport that mostly kids do and make a living off of somehow.

The show is pretty damn good but only vaguely relates to the games, besides Pokemon And locations. Play the game and see if you like it. There are a lot of them to choose from.

It's about a group of kids who during their summer vacation get pulled into an alternate world. They each have these small devices that correspond with a specific monster. The main character has this T-rex looking thing, and there is this blonde guy with a white tiger looking thing... Anyway these monsters change form as they get stronger, and the kids have to save the alternate world while each powering up their own monsters.

It's a show where parents allow their 10 year old kids to travel the world on their own and encounter dangerous animals that could easily kill them. The characters' goal is to catch these animals and force them to fight each other for entertainment. It's a cruel world.

If you read the print versions of Pokémon, it only gets worse. Especially the Red and Blue tag teaming.

Yes. That was Digimon. It was often confused with Pokémon way back when, even though the shows and their premises are entirely different.
