i've heard a lot of people learned a lot of english from the pokémon games. some of them also had fairly obvious moral lessons and I'm curious if any of us picked up on those as a kid. what have the games taught you?

    If at first you don't succeed, grind, grind again.

    Also, water conducts electricity.

    I think Pokemon games have taught me (and over the years, kept reinforcing) patience above all else. If I was a new gamer and you introduced me to something like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, or any other grind-happy RPG, I'd most likely get bored within the first hour of these games. But playing Pokemon games and grinding for hours so my team can be overleveled, spending stupidly long periods of time trying to shiny hunt among other things really kind of teaches and -- at times -- somewhat stretches the limits of patience among players. It certainly held true for me, and as such this is one of the reasons why, for the most part, i have such massive tolerance to do mind-numbingly tedious things as long as there's a long-term benefit for me from it.

      Pokemon games taught me Kakuna Rattata, which means no worries.

        Pokemon taught me to be a smarter player when it comes to gaming. I often used to make cocky choices when I started playing Ruby but now I tend to make more smarter choices.

        I also learned more about numbers thanks to the Pokemon stats, so there's also that.

          You only get somewhere if you Attack. Only later on I realized attacks can be made more effective with strategy.

          Also English.
