    Yes, we can tell. :p j/k

    Lots of morality in these stories.
    the moral arguments conveyed by the Pokémon franchise have been long contested as glorification of animal cruelty and slavery, among others

    I never got into the Pokemon craze. It never really interested me.

    But I can't deny it was popular with others all the same.

    I figure it like a good Role-Playing Game, and I don't mean in the video game sense. They define the world, characters, etc to immerse yourself in.

    Lmao! I remember people being upset at the “evils” of Pokémon, when I was a kid.
    Even nerds were calling those people out for having no lives. Ahh memories.

    My son was really into Pokemon when he was little. He's grown up now but I still have his cards.

    Bruh everyone still likes Pokemon what are you talking about with all this "20 years ago" crap? The low point for the series was probably Gen 5, then things really picked up again with Gen 6. I've gotta say my least favorite starter lineups are from Gens 4, 5 and 7.

    That said, I do have a good list of favorite Pokemon. I still play Pokemon Go, and when I studied abroad in Austria and travelled around Europe I was playing Pokemon Go the whole time turning PokeStops, hatching eggs, collecting gym badges and catching Pokes.

    Yep. I have heard that Pokemon Go made the developer and publisher an unbelievable amount of money.

    Pokemon was liked by EVERYONE in 1999/2000 and it climaxed with the movie. I still enjoy Gold and Silver but people lost interest after the second movie
