    The more pressing issue is that they’re letting teenagers carry monsters capable of breathing fire and punching holes in rocks to school. That’s just a Poke-Stamford waiting to happen.

  2. You had to say ‘cock-fighting’ , didn’t you? Now I’m going to have to spend the rest of the day with the sentance “Pokemon is cock-fighting without the ****.” in my head. ;p

    BTW, here’s something I’ve always wondered about Poke-World. Do they eat meat in Poke-World? If they do, where does the meat come from?

    • I was just playing Pokemon White the other day and they say that pokemon only showed up 100 years ago. I’m guessing they still have regular animals around as well before then and since then.

  3. when Pokemon first made it big in the US that was actually one of the arguments its detractors made, that it was too similar to animal fighting rings. Which it totally is, but training an animal to attack on command is actually surprisingly difficult, so I don’t think the argument holds much water.
