Firstly, I knew about the ban in KSA from the links (1st 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;
