    The show that everyone loves, yet when you open your eyes, its disgusting, if this was in real life we'd be saying things like, "Dog go use tackle on Fish," think how demented and cruel 10 year-olds would be, but then again this would never be real, and don't get me wrong i like poke. i've been a fan since ep. 1 when i was like 5

        Um, what? I'm afraid I just missed your point. It's all just fiction, you know, so obviously it doesn't resemble reality in a lot of ways.

        So Pokémon cannot be judged our ways because the mechanics of their world is too different. If animals had mystic powers, like foxes breathing fire and polar bears being able to summon hailstorms, you can be sure as hell that we'd be using them to our advantage, especially if the had the brain capability to understand us. The bad guys would initiate it, and the good guys would follow, and while caring would be promoted, no-one would actually give a damn about their wildcat scratching their coyote, or their mouse biting their hamster, lol.

        Also, note that the damage done to Pokémon when battling is rarely harsh enough to harm a Pokémon severely. Obviously the fire Charizard uses on Ash isn't like the fire we use to burn wood, or else Ash would have third-degree burns by now or be dead. Same goes for physical attacks; if a bear slashed a seal, it'd rip it apart, but Ursaring using Slash on Walrein clearly doesn't affect Walrein so much that it kills it.

            XD, but animals already do that, although not out of malice. Sharks bite people, mosquitoes infect us with horrible diseases, and cougars hunt our cattle and could kill us in one bite.

            Pokemon takes that demented and savage part of animals that you mentioned and turns it into a nice fantasy themed world. Obviously if we did these things in real life it would be pretty cruel, but what some people don't realize is that Pokemon isn't real. That's why some of those super-Christians say Pokemon is Satanic. They don't realize these things could ever really happen unless there's some crazy guy with a sick sense of humor.

              Also, Pokemon never kill each other in battle unless it's for survival or an accident.

                  But, you see, it's a fictional world.

                    Then how about the "Legendaries"? They are supposed to control evil doings of pokemon and people. I cannot think if Lugia uses it's rage to flush down humans.

                          Odd, the Vatican says that Pokemon is "full of inventive imagination"... And if I am not mistaken the Pope is a super-Christian...

                          Also I liked Pokemon since I was 6ish, I am not sadistic or cruel. But I can be a bit mean to people, but I love animals (News Flash, we are animals, but its animals of the human variety I can be mean to...).

                          Okay so, this is obviously not the first time something like this was ever brung up, right. :|

                          Pokemon is a fantasy world, an anime that was meant to be enjoyed by little children. So what? Everyone's afraid that those little children may someday kill society and and end the human race as we know it with their pokemans?

                          It isn't real, and we'd best be glad it isn't. As long as it isn't real, there's little to complain about the anime(this is bolded for a reason), and everyone can enjoy the show as it is, a cartoon, and nothing else.

                          Be serious, it would be worse if it was Yu-gi-oh. I'd rather not replace my body parts with jewelry, thanks.

                            Yeah it an anime so anything could happen

                            In real life a snorlax using bite on a goldeen would be quite bad and most likely leave someone with one less pokemon

                            But in pokemon it is fine. Because pokemon is an anime, which doesnt make it sadistic and demented.

                              I'm surprised we can even discuss this. I assume this would have been brought up zillions of times.
