Pokemon is one messed up franchise when you look at it as a whole. In the world of Pokemon, they find it perfect acceptable to send 10 years old into the world with very little in order to catch and train creature that could easily kill them in horrific fashion. Then with very little training, they are then giving a Pokemon of their own to aid them but aren’t told how to use them or what they could do. So even their Pokemon could kill them.
All the adults are fine with sending them like this. They just let their child run around with no supervision and sleep anywhere in order to get glory. Sure, they can go to a Pokemon Center but it’s still wrong. They are way to trusting into the world, especially with Team Rocket, Magma, and Aqua out in the world. Which by the way, why haven’t Officer Jenny caught them? And if they haven’t caught them, why are they still Police Officers? Do the Pokemon world have a capable police force? I’m starting to think it all one big joke.
Why is socially acceptable to battle Pokemon? It’s technically animal abuse and contradictory to the point that you are supposed to work as a team and be friendly with the Pokemon on your team. Forcing them to battle and keeping them in tiny little balls against their will isn’t friendly.
So pretty much Pokemon is teaching us to train our companions to battle for us for glory and to trust everyone. #LifeLessons
