Heh, I found this site made by someone who thinks Pokemon is stupid and the reasons that he/she posted are totally absurd. So I wrote this whole thing explaining why each of the reasons aren't substantial, they aren't based on anything except assumptions or lack there of. S/he read the book by it's cover and s/he jumped to a conclusion. It's not mean or rude or anything (so it's really not a flame ^^"), but I'm wondering if I should send it. That site should be shut down. >_< If nobody posts here I'm going to send it. People like him/her realllllllllly bug me. I can post my reply here if anyone wants to read it and let me know if I'm trippin' too. Just let me know.

Is this where this thread goes? *wanders around lost*

what site is it perse? If it is a forum, send the url to me via PM.

I often go visit Anti-pokmon sites when I"m utterly bored. I analyze they're reasons for hating it and then, if the reasons are not substantial enough, send them "hat mail" for lack of a better word, that challenges them on everything they said. So, in short, yeah. If everything you said was true, I would definitely send the mail. But if this Pokhater gave substantial reason to hate it (i.e. he's played the games himself and finds them dull or boring) , I would just leave him alone...

I'd like to see this site too, if only to laugh at his rediculous reasons.

I should take that up as an internet hobby. study hate sites and if it isn't a good reason, throw their bad reasons back at them. :D

Okay, this is the site:
http://maxpages.com/hbdragon882/ap_dot_com

And this is my reply:
"We all know pokemon is stupid, but do we know why? So I'm here to tell you."

ALL CARTOONS ARE STUPID; as we get older we like to watch shows with more mature themes. Pokemon is a children's show, children enjoy it because it's made for them. Just like there are shows made for kids before they start school, preteens, teenagers, and adults. It's fine to have your own opinions about things but you don't have to post such negative things on the net. I'm sure a lot of Pokemon lovers were very offended by this. You'd avoid a lot of flames, I bet, if you just stated that you don't like Pokemon and left it at that. I don't agree with the things you said on this site so I'm going to tell you what I think regarding each of your "reasons."

"Changes have been made to omit cussing, as it had a lot of it."

First of all, the fact that cursing has been edited out doesn't make Pokemon "stupid." But it does make the un-edited version inappropriate for kids. But that doesn't matter because children aren't watching that version. The edited version is the version they know and love.

"SPEAKING: Pokemon can only say their own names. This is really retarded. The reason why parrots can "talk" and dogs can't is because their tongues are made that way, a dog's tongue is too thin to be able to pronounce words, whereas a parrot's is thick and allows it to say things. In short, if a creature's tongue (in this case a pokemon) lets it say its own name, then it can obviously say other things too."

Im about to show you how much you know. :P We arent born knowing how to speak a language, we learn it. But we are born knowing how to communicate, first through crying, then talking baby, until finally we pronounce our first word. Its pretty much the same with Pokemon, they cry, then they start saying their names. Probably because they hear Humans saying their names all the time, and then learn from their parents to say their name. They do have the capacity to speak English/"Human," I know this because one of the Pokemon learned to. And Id really like to see you come up with individual sounds for even the first 150 pokemon, its not so easy. So a way to get out of doing it is having them say their names. You might think its retarded but Im sure youre older than the children its targeted to. They dont think its stupid. So again, its not meant for older kids so why are you ranting? Little kids like it, and older kids like it because they liked it when they were young. When you become a teenager and have to start growing up so quickly, things you liked when you were little are comforting. Most teenagers just getting into Pokemon dont like it, because they never used to like it.

"REPRODUCTION: No visible organs, no footage of pokemon mating, and no gender differences. Pokemon are not divided into groups of "he" and "she" but "it" and "it." So there is now way pokemon can breed and replicate."

First of all, there's a typo in that. Second of all, you'd have something to say if there were visible organs--I know I would o_o Assume there are some. There <i>are<i> gender differences, there's male and female pokemon for just about every species of pokemon. I say almost, because some of them are genderless. There is a reason that they did that though, it makes the game a lot easier. You have to breed to get certain moves on certain pokemon, but you can't breed relatives or pokemon of the same gender. So they made some of them like Ditto genderless so that people wouldn't have to go out and search for another pokemon that's the right gender, that would be very tedious and annoying. So it's just easier to have a genderless pokemon. And it's not just whether they're male and female, it has to do with which one of them is, so that would make it even harder. So give me a break, they could have come up with a logical way for them to reproduce but little kids don't need to know about that, why do you think they don't teach kids about reproduction until they get older?

"BATTLES: This has got to be a criminal offense, and an animal rights violation! **** fighting (where two roosters slash each other with spikes on their feet until one of them dies)... Also, how do they not die?"

That's a contradictiory statement. First you talk about them dying then you say they don't die. Basically, **** Fighting isn't a good example because it's a lot more violent than Pokemon especially since they are trying to <I>KILL</i> each other. Pokemon don't die, they faint. They <i>can</i> die but generally people try to keep death out of kid shows. And they should.

"POKeBALLS: As I said before, no reproductive organs, so this must mean something else."

That's sick.

"Also, how do they not suffocate in there? There's no air vents or anything! They also can't eat anything!"

It's a cartoon. Many shows have similar things, on Jimmy Neutron they go into space without oxygen tanks or space suits and helmets. If you went into space not only would you not be able to breath youd probably explode or something... The bottom line, yet again is that it doesn't have to be logical. Most kids wouldnt notice this anyway, and if they did its probably only because when they went out and caught those lizards their moms or dads made them punch those holes in the top of the container.

"And some of them never get out of the balls because they suck so much, "trainers" don't even want to see their ugly faces! It is so retarded!"

Dont want to see their ugly faces? Riiiight. No one has EVER said that, or anything like it so you have no reason at all to say that except to make it sound bad. If youre going to try to make something sound bad at least get substantial reasons. And dont pick something you dont know enough about. Dont judge a book by its cover.

And the leading characters, the ones that would become role models, don't do that. Ash's pokemon are out of their pokeballs most of the time at Professer Oak's house anyway. Theres lots of different settings too, theres a lake and everything. They are fed and theyre happy whether they are there on the road with a trainer. The role models dont think that any of his pokemon "suck," by the way.

"LOYALTY: You're a pokemon "trainer." You're walking down the street and you see a Pokemon. You release one of your other Pokemon and it kicks the other Pokemon's butt. You cram the bruised up pokemon into a ball, and say: "I got one!" Now the Pokemon you caught is supposed to be loyal to you? I doubt it."

They say "you deserve a nice, long rest" all the time. And they usually let them out after they catch them to talk to them. Also, a lot of Pokemon come to them wanting to be caught, Poliwag, Bulbasaur, Mudkip, I cant think of any more but I know there are several more. Pokemon like to battle, and the trainers treat their Pokemon like friends. Pikachu is Ashs best friend, he stresses that all the time and his actions back it up.

"ABILITIES: Some Pokemon can fight, others can shoot fire, others can generate electricity, and others can do other stuff. This is not possible unless they are robots in a costume."

Cartoon. Cartoon. Cartoon. Get it in your get. Logic in its truest form goes out the window with pretty much ALL childrens cartoons. They have different types, fire types can breath firejust like fire-breathing dragons got something to say about them too? HMMMM? And what about superheroes? You see, theres lots of "illogical" things like that in cartoons. I put that in quotes because its not that its illogical, its that its fanciful.

"POKEMON "TYPES": I once heard a character on pokemon refer to Pikachu as an "animal type pokemon." This remark stupid because there are no animals on the show. I have not seen a single real animal anywhere one the show. So how can something be something when that other something doesn't even exist? I don't know, and I don't care."

I think youre mistaken. The types are like grass, electric, fire, water, etc. But they are given title-ish things in the pokedex, I dont know what to call it. For instance, Absol is the disaster Pokemon because it seems like whenever it appears theres a disaster like an earthquake, etc. So you probably heard one of those title-ish things. Pikachu is an electric rodent or something, thats probably what you heard. I really do think youre mistaken because we never heard the pokedex description of Pikachu, we never had to.

"EVOLUTION: This has got to de the dumbest thing about pokemon. Evolution takes time, millions of years to make the slightest changes in a creatures body structure, not a couple of seconds. And it doesn't involve a strange white glow thing."

Ehhh, I dont really like that term either. Id rather they call it "grow" or something. I dont believe in Evolution anyway, but I know what it is. It supposedly takes millions of years, and creatures evolve to adapt to their surroundings. When pokemon "evolve" they dont do it to adapt to their surroundings, they just get bigger (usually) and stronger. So I think they could have just come up with a better term. Anyway, I this is how its explained: lots of energy builds up in the pokemon as it grows in levels until it "evolves." The glow-like thing is just for effect--CARTOON!

"TRAINERS: This has got to be a joke. The "trainers" don't even do anything. All they do is throw Pokeballs around, and take all the credit if their pokemon won a battle. This is absurd. The Pokemon train themselves, the "trainers" have nothing to do with it. But still, the "trainers" get all the credit for a won match."

No they dont. In Pokemon Stadium (the first one) the pokemon get statues made of them to recognize them for winning a contest. And in the newest game, Ruby when the pokemon win a contest, like a beauty contest, they have a picture drawn of them and put up on the wall. Its not a picture of the trainer. :p And the trainers do train them, you just havent seen the episodes where they do obviously. I can give you several examples too. Ash trained for hours-days to teach Pikachu Iron Tail. Another Trainer, Brawley, trains with his pokemon in the ocean. It had a lot of weight so he used surfing to teach it balance and build up its leg strength. And Ashs Cyndaquil had a hard time getting the fire on its back to start up so Ash trained with him so that he wouldnt have to get warmed up every battle. And you should assume that they do a lot of training that we dont see, its just that training is usually pretty boring, kids dont want to watch that. So they just do a little of it here and there.

"NAMES: Catch one pokemon and fine. Call it by whatever its name is. But catch multiple kinds of the same pokemon and what do you get? Multiple names! Are you actually supposed to call two or more pokemon by the same name? It's confusing."

No. You really dont know anything do you? In the games youre asked every time you catch a pokemon if you want to nickname it. And in the show most trainers do nickname their pokemon. The only reason the main characters dont is to help the watchers learn the names and not to confuse them, and when we meet a new trainer with a pokemon weve never seen before they <I>usually</I> dont have a nickname. So you can cross that one off your list too.

"BATHROOM: Isn't it true that if humans and other "living things" do not excrete waste for three days, it will overload their system and they will die? YES! Again, if Pokemon don't have any holes between their legs neither in the front nor back, how the heck are they supposed to take a dump? And if they can't, almost all of them eat so where does the unusable waste go? A living organism cannot use everything that it takes in. It must get rid of it somehow. It is impossible for this to continue."

Yes, which is why you should assume that they do "take a dump." We dont see any of the humans doing that either but we know that they use the bathroom dont we. So just because we dont see them use the bathroom and there aret any illusions to it, doesnt mean that we dont. You keep talking about things being logical, part of things being logical in cartoons (all shows really) they dont explain OBVIOUS things. And another thing, they cant show that on the show, thats disgusting. There are organs but they cant draw that. Its INAPPROPRIATEUNSUITABLE FOR CHILDREN. Stop asking them to be THAT true to life. Youd waste a lot of precious moments in the show if they had to show pokemon using the bathroom all the time anyway.

"CONCLUSION: What I don't understand is that if Pokemon are so smart and powerful, why don't they just take over the world? I guess they're not so smart after all."

You are such an idiot. They are smart the same way that real animals are. My dog went on the side of the house and stared at the gate until it figured out how to climb up it. And it would practice doing it until it build up enough strength. Now I call that smart. And its the same way with Pokemon. Only humans are that smart, and they dont act like or pretend that Pokemon are that smart.

Therefore, my conclusion is, as I have stated, you are an idiot for many reasons. You jumped to a conclusion, you didnt do any research to find out if you were correct in your reasoning either. Youre waaaaaaay to critical, it is a childrens show. Kids dont care about the things you brought out, its a show, its for entertainment. It doesnt have to be so logical for kids, that stuff goes right over their heads.

Ooh, nice replies! You did an excellent job explaining some things, and hopefully it will all fit into that guy's insanely thick, stupid head. I hope that you send it in!

Just to include a few comments...

When he mentioned how there were not any animals in the Pokemon world, that has been proven false. Watch the episode where the S.S. Anne sank; You'll see fish, real fish, swimming in the ocean. Just look out the window by Ash and company. And on that Ghost of Maiden's Peak episode, Gastly turned into a mongoose, or some sort of animal. Mrs. Ketchum was eating shrimp one time at the Pokemon League, when they were at a restaraunt eating dinner. There are several times when they have mentioned, or there have been real animals on the Anime. Ash even mentioned that Edison invented the lightbulb! (That was random, but still, it made a point!) So, for some wierd unknown reason, the creators did not say where all of the real animals were, but there have been mentions, and even times when Ash and them saw some.

And as for the 'names' thing... Well, compare Pokemon to real animals. Pokemon is the name of the species, and same with animal. Each species of Pokemon and animal have its own name, such as Pikachu, cat, Bayleef, dog, Charizard, dolphin, etc. Now, unless you give one of those creatures a nickname, then you should call it by the name of its species. Several dogs are called 'dogs', and several Pikachu are just plain 'Pikachu'. It's their species! There are thousands of different animals and Pokemon of the same species, but you all refer to them as one thing: The name of their species. You don't call each of them different things.

And I hope that made sense, lol. It's late here, and I'm tired...

@ reproductive part:

-go ahead and try to find a penguin who has reproductive organs for a start, and your next step can be trying to find where's the reproductive organs on an Octopus... Oh my goodness you can't find anything! Does that mean Octopus and Penguin are both retarded animals? Absolutely not...

@ the tongue:

-I really don't know much about the science behind communication... however first of all, anything in the anime is quite possible (how did Goku suspend in midair again?). It is actually quite an original idea because all the other previous anime monsters either growl/hiss, or talk human languages... only Pokemon is a bit unique with saying their own name. Not necessarily an excellent idea, but it's an unique one.


People must realize that there must be some things in the world where we can expand our imagination beyond what reality limits us... there must be things such as Pokemon, and other cartoon/anime where the impossible/unreasonable are happening. Without them, where do we invest our imagination? Really we rely on imagination in order to advance ourselves in the society... it's the strive to make imaginations real that pushes us forward in technology and in terms of the development or pretty much anything...

Ahem... Pokemon is QUITE FOR KIDS EVEN IN THE ORIGINAL!

It's about time to do some research...

-the roughest Pokemon ever got was Legends of Dratini where Team Rocket actually fired a gun but misses anything... in comparison to Gundam Wing who got 5 nameless pilots dying every episode...

-the original copy of "insult" is something like an insult, yet not enough to be swears... one must take note that whenever you're translating a show to another language, you can change how severe a put down is... Look at it like this:

the sentence is: "________ you, you infidel!"
Now there's at least 5 words that fits in that blank, and a lot of words WILL work for that blank... ranging from swear, to "curse you", or even "Away with you" and all of them will make sense in terms of context. Yet it's a lot worse when we use swears in the blank, in comparison to the other terms which are much nicer.

Plus, you shouldn't be swearing regardless of kids show or adults show... it's just needlessly rude to swear. Plus it really shows your lack of self control or intelligence when you have to resort to swearing... especially in an arguement.

(I'm still up for being a pokemon missionary. :D)

Really though, sometimes its best to actually hunt these people down and inform them of what misconceptions they're entertaining. Not only might they be wrong, (Which most of them are,) but their ill informed Article could ruin Pokemon's Future fan base. I wasn't really suggesting it before to be mean, I was just thinking that sometimes its best not to let "Sleeping dogs lie" As the saying goes. People leave things alone when they really should help too often. That's why society is in such a mess that it is.

Now Kili really told that person what's what, and that's commendable. But there are many other misinformed peeps out there that require to be reeducated on the matter. So when I suggested Missionary like behavior, I wasn't really joking, I was being serious. i hope you guys understand what I mean. :\
