So I was talking with my friend about negative stereotypes and Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow came up in the conversation.
You see, Giovanni is an Italian name, and in PKMN R/B/Y Giovanni is the leader of Team Rocket, an organized crime syndicate...
A bit stereotypical, no?
I'm not too sure about other parts of the game, but I do seem to remember that other things seemed somewhat offensive like that.
Like "Super Nerd"s and "Cueball"s to name a couple. Have you ever see either one in any generation after RBY?
Anybody else notice this stuff, or am I thinking wwwaaayyy too hard?
