Sometimes it's the Simple Solutions (Pokemon)

Now, fair enough, Pokemon sort of exists in a parallel world from us where the same kind of etiquette just doesn't exist.

But that said, I always found it weird that gangsters of the same kind of foreboding presence and stature as Tony freakin' Soprano would fall to their knees in defeat when their pet rock-tortoise-thing was beaten in a skirmish with a young child. Okay, fair enough, you've proven your pet is stronger than my pet, but what's to stop me punching you in the face now?

It's this kind of logical criticism that really tells me I should avoid approaching Pokemon at all, but GOD, do I love the critters.

Except Zubat. Zubat can go to hell.

Very funny! Love the art style and the look of real paper.

Good, I never liked Ash, he seems like an asshole. Too bad Pikachu didn't get shot as well!

This is true about almost every kid's show... Things would be a lot more easy if they just took the overly violent response.

"Care bear count down! 5, 4, 3--"
"Oh god, he brought an AK!! How can tummy symbols compare to that?!"
