Pokemon ! Now close your eyes and kindly have a flash back of your child hood and the excitement and craze behind Pokemon…………………………………… I guess thats enough back to the present age . *burp* I was totally hooked on to it ,although i was in Kerala(hard to find original Pokemon cards) i managed to get my hand on every single thing with the word Pokemon on it. Yes i had Pokemon boxers with Ash and Brock on it . Now what went wrong with it Many things .
What the hell happened to the simple technique of chucking a ball and capturing it ? Well after a few seasons there are different balls , now thats confusing . I mean seriously WTH . There are
4) Master Ball
9) Friend Ball
10) Love ball(wondering if i can catch girls with this)
69)Fuck This Ball
18) Dive Ball
*sigh* thats alot of balls
19) Luxury Ball
21) Park Ball
I give up ,I am bored of the list.If you are interested in more balls kindly Google it 😉
Now I assume Pokemon is targeted to an age group of 5-11 .To admit the truth i can’t even remember the names of half the types of pokeballs and i am 16 . from what I can understand the pokeballs just get prettier with the long names and thats it .
2)Too many Pokemon
Now now don’t argue with me , I am right ! What the hell happened to the 150 pokemons ? I assume they tried to be adventurous and experimented with each other . Result? – More than 500 Pokemon and counting. Anyone who thinks I am lying can check out the long list
I don’t why they created so many and for what joy ?To create more merchandise? And the names are just rubbish- “skitty” I think the guy made a typo once while writing kitty and TA-DA we got a new pokemon .
Don’t get me started on this one . All of us who has watched atleast 20 episodes know about this . Every episode they meet a troubled person or a naughty pokemon, Ash will be the only one who doesn’t know about the pokemon . He takes out his pokedex , listens to the old nagging voice. After a while a cute girl comes Brock gets hyper ,the third person among the gang hits Brock . The gang decides to help the cute girl/old man who has a cute daughter /pokemon .In the last ten minutes team rocket comes tries to steal the worthless yellow pikachu and the other pokemon(the one introduced on the episode), they succeed for 5 mins ,they fails . Happy Ending. Thats one episode ,just change the girl and the pokemon and the background and you get 20 episodes .
As for gym battles Ash wins the first round,loses the second and wins the third. Or He loses the gym battles and comes for a re match and then loses the league in the quarter finals .
hmm thats pokemon for you ^
4)Too many episodes/leagues
Ok this is not exactly a valid reason but when you combine the above reasons with this then yes IT IS A MAJOR REASON . As far as i know its been on air for more than 13 years or something . YES that long .
