I was busy writing today and my son asked what I was doing. I told him that sometimes I write interesting things that I think others will want to read and I post them so others can read them. He got very excited and asked me if I would write about Pokemon. The boy loves Pokemon. I laughed at first then thought, "why not?" I am going to write an article on Pokemon for my son. This should be fun.
I'm a Pokemon fan, myself. I've been playing the games ever since the original Red/Blue came out back in 1997. They're nice, simple JRPGs that have insane underlying complexity. It's the kind of game that both children and adults can enjoy.
However, the TV series is a travesty that takes extreme(ly stupid) liberties with the games' plots and should pretty much be avoided at all costs.
We have actually had Pokemon "in our family" since 1998 when my daughter (who is now 19) really got into it. She actually still plays the Game Boy games, still has her card collection, etc.... She is actually the reason my 7 year old is crazy about Pokemon now. He wants a card collection just like Kaitlyn's.
