Poke-messed up

pokmen sm

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

Pokemon are real!

The world has been in left in an uproar as everyone is becoming a Pokemon master. “Pokemon Go” is the game where you can catch Pokémon in the real world. Yes, you read that right. Pokemon has invaded our world and now we can become the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them and not to die is our real test. To train them is our cause.

In order to catch the Pokemon, you must walk around your area and the Pokémon will pretty much run into you. The Pokemon that you are able to catch is based on what your location is. If you leave in grassland areas, then you will have a lot of grass Pokemon near you. Then you can train at gyms (that is right, you can open up your own gym). There are also other nifty area where you get free stuff.

The game is extremely addicting and makes people exercise and actually talk to people face to face. Wait for the backlash of people angry because they have to move around and actually talk to people. But the game has been a smash hit since it’s inception and it’s no one why.

Shows that should have been left alone: The Powerpuff Girls

2

banner popEver hear about a remake of a show you just loved and then you watched it and just thought “That should have been left alone”? Well I did and this is how this article was born. So sit back, relax, and let me explain to why they should have let The Powerpuff Girls alone.

After the Cartoon Network hit ended back in 2005, the wonderful country that brought you Sailor Moon, Pokémon, and YuGiOh! thought it would be a magical idea to make the show into an anime called Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z! The show set the girls in New Townsville, or Tokyo City if you are watching the Japanese version. Professor Utonium and his son, Ken Kitazawa, were trying to stop a bunch of icebergs from freezing the city due to a major ecological disaster . So Ken thought it would be a good to shoot some Chemical Z, the next evolution of Chemical X, at it the iceberg which ended up sending a bunch of “Z waves” into the city. This hit three normal girls (Momoko, Miyako and Kaoru) and let them transform into “The Powerpuff Girls Z”. It also hit the Utonium Family’s robotic pet named “Poochi” gained the ability to talk and such but that really isn’t important. The “Z Waves” also created the villains like Mojo Jojo, Him, etc. The three girls, who never knew each before this, became friends and banded together to protect New Townsville.The personalities of the characters are the same as their original counterparts and they stick to the story lines like The Rowdyruff Boys storyline.

This anime wouldn’t have been as horrible if it wasn’t for the fact that they changed so much and pretty much ruined the concept of it. Granted,They changed it to fit with the type of anime it was and to feel like the Super Sentai and Kamen Raider series that are extremely popular  in Japan, but it would have been still as good if they were to stick with the original concept. I do like that the girls are older than what they were in the original series. It adds more to the storyline because there is only so much you can do with kindergartener before you would run out with ideas. But with 13-year-old girls in the 8th grade, you could do way more and make the storylines more in-depth (Something, you think they would have taken advantage of).

The main problem with this show is that they changed so much of it and it just didn’t seem like The Powerpuff Girls we grew up knowing and loving. The way they presented it was also extremely bad. The original show was clever and witty for it being on Cartoon Network, but this show is more childish than anything else. I could go on and on about how bad this anime was but I think that there is an english dub version and it’s been aired everywhere but the United States of America says a lot. Even the creator of the original, Craig McCracken, wasn’t involved in the production(it probably would have rocked then if he was).

They even made a Manga of the original series was created in 2004 and it stuck the original story lines and acted more like an add-on to the original series. This would have been better than this anime. Maybe I’m just an angry fan but I don’t think I’m alone in saying that Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z! was just a major disappointment in something that could have amazed the world. 

So for the first time, Japan has ruined an American Series instead of the other way around.
