Well, if Pokemon were real, that would be freaking amazing. I've always talked with my friends about what it would be like. I decided that I would have a set team: Snorlax, Charizard, Kingdra, Sceptile, Nidoqueen, and Scizor. I said that I would be like Blue, and become the champion. We all decided that I would have a quiet rival who would defeat me, leading me to become the SECOND best. I would be humiliated, but take a place as a gym leader. I would also have a hot girlfriend (COUGH COUGH FLANNERY) and we would have a healthy relationship. The most exciting part, I would go off into the wilderness with my pokemon, much like Red, and disappear for a long, long time. I would come back a grizzled pokemon master.
I think if pokemon were real it wouldn't be any fun because some corporation or legal group would try to control them and they would probably be successful at it. They'd be used for war purposes and every attempt would be made to keep them away from the general public.
Pokemon fighting would be made illegal and it would have the same reputation as real life dog fights. It would be frowned upon.
Having a pokemon would be like having drugs and it would probably be seen as something "bad people" partake in.
In other words it would be boring and downright painful for a pokemon fan if they suddenly became real. Too many peoples morals and greed getting in the way.
