A Japanese series of Animation and Games that was banned in Kansas for promoting "Evolution".
"Dammit Mom! Why are you taking away my Pokemon Cards!?" "Because it will teach you that you were a monkey once."
creatures that are caught using pokeballsmore...
and then made slaves and used to beat up other pokemon
some show that gets all the jocks pissed off so they go around saying stupid stuff like
P1:"Dood, Pokemon sucks man, we're so cool we havce cars and a life, FAGS"
P2:"All right man! Awesome joke! gud 1!!!!"
to prove that they're so much cooler and "hardcore" and have a "life" (give me your definition).
Don't get me wrong, I'm not sticking up for it, but it seems like the people who hate it are usually retarded.
"Dood, Pokemons sooo GAY FAGS QUEERS!!!!"
"lol gud 1"
we're so cool, c'mon, lets sit on a couch and watch some guys play football.....
It began in Japan. Some guy, known as Okirocho Danana wanted to come up with it. So he did. Pokemon Blue hit the shelves in January '94. It began simply enough- catch all 151 pokemon, train a team and get "Blue" laid. A standard team at L100 was usually along the lines of Caterpie/Mewtwo/Chansey/Shoe/Machoke and of course one of the starters- Zekrom or Ice Beam. Completing the game was simple, though many criticized Nintendo selling the GameShark separately as a cunning marketing ploy. Once one had Gamesharked all 152 pokemon, the chairman of pokemon would send 55 virgins to your home.
The next generation of pokemon came in the form of Pokemon Gold, and now 251 to catch. GameSharking became an arduous process. It was commonplace to find Gamesharkless players selling crack/doing homework for a trade.
Then came Pokemon Violet. To catch the rarer pokemon like furret and castform, one had to attend Nintendo rallies and pledge allegiance to Skeletor.
Finally Pokemon Black/White came, with the new feature of DreamWorld. Although a dangerous tactic, Nintendo had decided to link their DS system with SEGA DreamCast, because it was such a good machine that it deserved to be given another go. Players were able to transfer one of two characters- Shenmue or Sonic- to their DS cartridge in place of their pokemon, as Shenmue is a dangerous mofo, and Sonic is nihilistic and racist against the Dark type, therefore the game was won upon transfer.
Pokemon Blue- A wild Caterpie appeared! Blue sent out Hitmonlee. Wild Caterpie used Flare Blitz! Its not very effective..... Blue's team was turned to dust....Blue blacked out like a pussy!
Pokemon Gold- Hi, would you like to go to rock tunnel? FUCK YOU, beat the elite four first!
Pokemon Pink- Vaporeon used Water Gun! Chansey's "soak all fucking attacks" made the move flaccid and useless.
Pokemon Black- Shenmue used generic martial arts stance. The foe's Dragonite shit itself!
These games by far beat any other games that you can think of. They usually have the same basic plot. You start out as a teenager and you choose a name for yourself. Then you meet the Professor that is unique to that one game. There are Prof. Oak(red, blue, yellow versions), Prof. Birch (gold, silver, and crystal versions), and then there's two more but i don't feel like going back to find out their names. I have one friend who I call Aquaman and he plays Pokemon like it's a religion. And he totally kicks ass at it too. I think everyone should try Pokemon at least once, but i'm not saying it's for everyone. So POKEMON4LyFe!!!
If you don't like Pokemon, then you must not have much of a life or whatever that pathetic thing is called.
A half decent game that was worth buying until the entire franchise was perverted by Anime producers in the mid ninety's by making television programs and "cutifying" everything and everyone in the game.
"The original game was pretty good, but WHAT THE FUCK are Pokemon Cards? PEICE OF PAPER? like SIX for $12!? WTF IS THAT!
Pokemon was a great fad from the years 1998-2000. In Kindergarten, it was all that we could think about; trading, sharing, swapping, PKMN Red, Blue and Yellow.
It would have not been poked fun at today if they didn't make all these new Pokemon; 151 was good, except for perhaps Marill, Azumarill, Togepi, and Togetic, making 155. They should have stopped at Red, Blue, and Yellow.
The Anime show would have been very excellent if they left all the TV-14 content in the show, just like in Japan, here in America, without Team Rocket coming in every other episode.
*sigh* I once the old Pokemon, but the new ones suck ass.
