look up any word, like lemonparty:
Once a very popular TV Show, Card game and video game which I myself was quite a fan of at the time. The TV Show and Card game sort of fizzled out after Poke'mon had had its time but the games were very good and they still exist to day. Of course I'm always seeing new card series's being brought out and am occasionally mildy interested because the artwork on some of the cards was rather good. In fact the card game was very popular and a lot of fights broke out about people not trading fairly and people even resorted to stealing others cards but I knew it had all gotten out of hand when at my first school they had people to watch over the swapping of Poke'mon cards and advising people on good swaps. Eventually most schools banned Poke'mon cards (and any others for that matter). So, when they began bringing out all those new Poke'mon and card sets it got a bit boring. So all in all the original Poke'mon cards, games and possibly the TV series was a rather good achievement but it never managed to keep a lot of fans after a few years, but, of course there are still dedicated Poke'mon fans all over the world.
When Poke'mon was cool:

Person 1: Whoa look I got this Japanese import of Venusaur!

Person 2: Oh well cool! Swap it for my shiny Clefairy!?

Person 1: No way!

It's video games, cards, and a TV show... the TV show was geared towards kids and was really lame. THe cards were geared towards kids, but they were such a complicated game that no one knew how the hell to play so they would just steal them from each other. The games are really good and was the second-highest selling video game in america after mario.

POkemon made some major adjustments in the second generation of games to make them less violent and enslaving-- like the concept of pokemon evolving when they really like you (you have to spoil them.) And pokemon hatching from eggs rather than being caught. Also in the 3rd generation you had the option to not battle at all and just enter little contests with your pokemon.

It's true though, they're scraping the bottom of the barrel now that they have like 385 pokemon.

People accuse the creator of pokemon (i forget his name) of attempting world domination, and say things like "it's such a stupid idea" about the series. Well, whatever, but obviously he had WAY better ideas than any of them because THEY aren't the creators of multi-million dollar franchises.

People like to use pokemon to be racist against japanese people. See below.
Those japs are like, "OOO ping pang pong!!! We take ovah world with pokeyman! We bomb pearl harbor!!!" That bastard rich businessman deserves to DIE!!! anyone who likes to play pokemon has committed a sin worthy of DEATH!!!!!

the greatest nintendo game ever made, yet it was butchered to death in near futre in that which we live in now as nintendo got over their little inflated heads as not ending when they should and aiming pokemon to little snot nose 2 years old who have no idea what they're doing and neglecting and isolating the older players who appreciate a good game when one is presented.
teens make fun of those still into pokemon as it is for "little kids" but yes the anime sucks dicks, but pokemon red and gold still pwn. Also americans totally screwed up pokemon as with all good anime that appear on regular tv channels

A game that everyone over the age of 8 thinks is gay, yet they still play the game up through college and beyond. It's the cocaine of little kid games.
Kid 1: Pokemon is for pussies.
Kid 2: Are you gonna get Diamond and Pearl?
Kid 1: They're coming out with more? HELL YEAH.

Creatures abreviated for Pocket Monsters. These Pocket Monsters replace animals. These things have either normal, dark, flying, psychic, steel, bug, pioson, rock, ground, grass, water, fire, fighting, ice, ghost, ???, electric, or even two of any of these types, which is oftenly called a dual type. Pokemon go with trainers, cordinators, or regualar people as comrades, teamates, pets, or even could do jobs for their masters!
1. Pokemon is not violent, is it?

2. To Pokemon, or not to Pokemon, that is the question.

3. Pokemon shall not be uncool, as long as I say so.

an insane phenomenon of the '90s, trading cards,games, and TV show about hunting for cute little creatures to put them in this tiny ball. occasionally, they take them out of their ball, and make them fight against other creatures. if the pocketmonster wins the fight the owner is closer to becoming a pokemaster.
i want to be the very bestttt, that no one ever was! to catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause....POKEMON! gotta catch em all.....its so truee, you teach me and i teach you, POK-E-MONNNNNNNN! gotta catch em all, gotta catch em ALLL! pokemon!

A fun game made by Nintendo. Originally created in Japan, the game was the inspiration for the TV show (or anime) not the other way around. The game came first. At the beginning there were 151 pokemon, but Nintendo got greedy, and instead of letting the games die gracefully, they had to keep it going. The result is now over 380 Pokemon that (al after 250, anyway) look like circles and blobs with arms and legs. The television show has not fared as well either. The once exciting plot is now stale, dry, and boring. Oh well. Guess its just another thing that jumped the shark.

Also, teh games are just remakes of the original plot of red and blue...does nobody agree with me here???
I havent watched an episode of Pokemon since I was about 11 years old. I tuned in for the first time in years, and was surprised at how much the show had turned to crap.
