    Pokémon

    "Gotta catch 'em all" was the slogan for this anime when it first came out and boomed in North America. I'm sure the creators are still laughing their arses off from the pure gold they spat out.

    But now I hear there's like, 458 of these things?! Am I the only one that honestly thinks they're trying to kill a dead horse here? 151 was enough, but now, amazingly, the puns still fly for 400+ more of these buggers. I'm sure this still does appeal to the youngins its targeted towards, and of course, some of the older crowd. I know when I was younger, I was all about Pokemon. Mew was the cutest little floaty cat in the world.

    Of course, being an avid anime lover, I'm not stating I hate Pokemon, after all, it was one of my major love interests in elementary school. I still have a lot of collectors items hidden away.

    What about you people? Do you think the creators of Pokemon are just trying to ride the coat-tails of something that has now merely turned into a fad?

    Re: Pokemon

    Hm pokemon, been a while, The games are ok, even the series. Ash had some of the best creatures, like Pigeot and Lapras. I lost count when it was 300+. The creatures of that world is ok, and some of the characters was fine.

    Re: Pokemon

    Well, if they stayed at 151, it would have been very boring. Then again this anime got very popular so they had to spit out a lot to bring other future games and shows along with it, money talks. I'm still quite the pokemon fan myself. It's been since the 5th grade for me, now I'm 19 and still show love for it.

    Re: Pokemon

    OK, I started watching the anime with my kid when it first came out. Of Course when the video games came out I had to get it for them and one for myself. I always had a rule that what my children watched and played so did I. Well I got hooked on the Pokemon games. I own all of them, and still play them. And yes I am looking forward to the next several hundred to come out. I still have to catch them all!

    Re: Pokemon

    i'd be lying if i said i hatred pokemon.

    as a matter of fact i still love the little buggers. there's just something about a few of them that kept my interest.

    For instance Hypno is my all time favorite.

    but onto the point. yes they are beating a dead horse, but every time they hit it, money pops out. so, in theory, pokemon could go one forever as long as there are kids to be brainwashed by it.
    Why hello there!

    Re: Pokemon

    Ah, well, I did USED to like pokemon, right when it first came out. I was absolutely in love with it. I watched it all the time! But, then I stoped watching it for about two years, and then I come back and try to watch it again, but guess what I see? Like, so many flipping versions of it! I do agree that they have exceeded it wayyy too much. They should have stopped while they were ahead, seriously.I mean, don't get me wrong, I still love it, but only the origianal. Not all this new crap they're coming out with now...
