First of all, imagine a world with safety, with creatures who could protect you and care for you. this is what the universe of Pok"mon offers. Also, a caught Pok"mon will be your friend, no matter who you are. Is this not a beautiful world to live in? is this not the kind of place that all people yearn for? damn straight its pretty awesome. For example, Google igglybuff, its the cutest and friendliest of all things.

The world of Pok"mon is not a safe place, in fact there is a war going on! Have you noticed the lack of young men in the games. This is because they are all at war the only men are the scientists and gym-leaders. To further backup my points I will quote Lt. Surge of the Kanto region. when introduced to the Vermilion gym he says "Hey, kid! What do you think you're doing here? You won't live long in combat! That's for sure! I tell you kid, electric Pokémonsaved me during the war! They zapped my enemies into paralysis! The same as I'll do to you" - Pok"mon Red/Blue

"imagine a world with safety"

Pro believes that the world of Pok"mon is a safe place, what he does not take into account is the level of organized crime in all of the regions such as team Rocket in Pok"mon Red/Blue. Children on an 'adventure' would be almost always attacked by these crime lords and not in a single game did the mom even think about her child. The Pok"mon world is not a safe place but a place of crime and danger.

"Google igglybuff, its the cutest and friendliest of all things."

Igglybuff may seem cute by has the opposition heard of the evolved form Wigglytuff? It is described in the pok"dex by "Its fine fur feels so pleasant, those who accidentally touch it cannot take their hands away." Wigglytuff's fur is just a trap to get unsuspecting kids to touch it, since they cannot take their hands away, who knows what Wigglytuff would do to them!

"did the mom even think about her child" in the more recent games, for example pokemon black and white, the mother is constantly checking up on her child and does useful things like giving running shoes. Secondly, Team rocket and all those other teams are retarded and catch the stupidest pokemon like ratata's and dumb things like that. finally, in your long quote from Lt. surge, he demonstrates how pokemon have saved his life, which could have ended much earlier without his trusty electric pokemon.

"mother is constantly checking up on her child and does useful things like giving running shoes."

What on earth do you think running shoes can do against an organised crime gang?! Would your mother be happy to send you out with only shoes if she knew how many people with a whole 6 rats or worse as pets!? I think not!

"he demonstrates how pokemon have saved his life, which could have ended much earlier without his trusty electric pokemon."

At the expense of how many others?

In conclusion I would like the house to know that the games are presented in the view of a child. The darker themes can only be explord with a significant amount of thought and research. I hope you enjoyed this debate! VOTE CON!
