Firstly, I knew about the ban in KSA from known news websites like the BBC & Ahram (see first post), and the reason Pokemon's popularity died is because people, channels and shop owners loathed the franchise after the Fatwa. As a result they stopped airing the anime and selling the merch (at least in Egypt) but the anime vanished completely because the only cross-country TV channels who existed back then stopped airing it.
I don't blame the religion at all
; I blame that particular Fatwa, and more the people who followed it blindly.
And I'm not butt-hurt or anything, as I said;
