Some time back, after I'd finished FR and was starting Ruby . . . it occurred to me that one thing I found fun in the game was something I probably shouldn't enjoy. Is it just me; isn't it ironic that we all find it fun that we're going around finding other kids, beating the crap out of their pets, then taking their lunch money? LOL! Of course, this "Super Effective" comic kind of gave me the idea!

What do y'all have fun with in Pokémon that makes you feel, maybe, just a tiny bit guilty? Hmmmm? ;-)

Hmm lemme think about the quirky stuff, but for now I'd just like to say, I've never seen that comic strip before!

Super Effective is awesome! Read almost all of them

Well in Generation III, after you beat one Lass trainer, I believe she says "Ew don't touch me!" Or some variation of that. It made me feel like a perv. XD I restarted the game a while ago, choosing the female trainer just for the heck of it...my friend happened to be looking over my shoulder when that text came on screen. His response? "That's hot." Mine? "She's TEN, you sick f**k!" Sadly, my friend didn't get the Super Effective reference. >.>

Just the whole idea of walking into strangers' houses and getting advice or items from people inside.

Remember, he's the one that's peeping at the girls & probably Erika too inside her gym from the outside of it...in other words, he's the perverted old geezer...

As for what he says I can't exactly remember it properly so I won't try to figure it out to no avail...

All I know is that he's out there in HeartGold, and he says, "I like the Celadon Gym! There are many strong trainers there!" And I'm thinking, "I don't think that's not why you like it in there, old man."

Lol, was Game Freak actually concerned about that for once?

"I like that gym because it is filled with women"

Is what I believe he said.

Thanks Platypus for that...yeah they got soft & changed it in HGSS for what was most likely no justified reason what so ever, LAME...

And the thing is, most people know what he really means anyway.

The fact that most fighting pokemon can "punch through steel walls", "send trucks flying with one palm thrust", and "Put professional boxers to shame". It's like, why do those blackbelts even TRY anymore?

I feel guilty... Beating up defenseless fish (ha, Magikarp) >:D.
Catching Suicune and thus crushing the dreams and life-long ambitions of Eusine. (but only a little guilty; I found him annoying when I was younger.)
Stuffing animals into pocket-sized spheres and forcing them to fight each other.

It's weird that... Professor Oak can't tell the difference between a boy and a girl.
No one ever seems to know your rival's name but you.
well, everything's weird. I mean, sentient flatus anyone? {gastly}

The old dude in Celadon says, " Heheh! This gym is great! It's full of women!"

The reason this game is banned in certain areas unless it is not anymore banned in those areas...

Yeah, that's much more accurate...ok, yeah he did say that...

For real!? It's actually banned, and just for that? Where? And yeah, that's exactly what he says :) (I've been replaying my yellow version).

On the other hand, I also think it's weird that Ditto can't smother its enemies or something. All it can do is transform.

Somthing really weird is the fact that when you give the Protiens, Irons, ect., which are steroids, they get happy!

Well, the "Super Effective" comic explains them all. Everything weird and unusual are on that comic. I really like the comic, hope the creator will continue it.

Walking into people's houses and picking up valuable items off the floor.

Surfing on the back of a Pokemon that's half as large as you are.

Buildings that are bigger on the inside.

Gym leaders who are weaker than the average wild Pokemon.

Allowing children to be in control of powerful creatures (specially if they're a very high level) seems like a very dangerous thing to do. Plus, allowing them to beat up each other in competitive battling (and sometimes getting money as a reward!) sounds rather cruel. Then again, this is all pretty darn awesome in fantasy-level, even though it's a little difficult to imagine how it all works, even inside its own universe.

I mean, it's just funny that some Pokemon can, like, melt rocks, fatally shock you and destroy buildings (or something). If I were a bully, or some disturbed kid, I'd probably do that intentionally just to have some fun. All you have to do is make your Pokemon fight and take down other monsters (sometimes even kill them, as we've seen in the manga), feed them lots of steroids and there you go, your own personal bodyguards and killing machines, that would go as far as risking their lives (lol Gardevoir) to protect you and obey your (sick/demented) orders. Talk about violence!

And there are also Grass and Psychic types for druggies (why risk your life and waste money purchasing drugs when you can have your Pokemon use their powders and hypnotic powers to get the very same effects for free?) and Poison types for whoever wants to "play" bioterrorism. And, for the perverts, some Pokemon can be pretty attractive in a weird way; what's worse is they can learn "Attract". What about Ghost and Dark types, those mischievous creatures who are naturally up to no good? In the wrong hands it's hell on Earth.

There are so many innocent themes in Pokemon that can be disrupted. You can have your Meowth/Persian use Pay Day to get easy money, or your Zigzagoon/Linoone to find valuable items like Nuggets and become rich. You can have your Mewtwo/any Psychic type mind-control important people to get what you want. You can have your Darkrai give people nightmares to fulfill your sadistic desires. You can have your Zorua/Zoroark transform into people you know to harm them somehow...

All in all, all those (imaginary?) aspects make me enjoy the franchise so much and thus make me feel somewhat guilty. I guess Pokemon really is hardcore material for thrill-seekers, hehe.
