Controversies In Geek Culture: Pokemon Remakes

The Pokémon series has always had its fair share of controversy behind it. Whether it’s the controversy over Jinx, the infamous Porygon episode, Lavender Town, or simply the ethics of Pokémon in general, there is always some sort of debate going on over this family friendly game series. Rather than talk about the more deeply ethical debates, I’ve decided to break down a constant addition to the Pokémon franchise – remakes. With the addition of “Omega Ruby” and “Alpha Sapphire” coming in November, the Pokémon franchise will have a total of six games that are purely remakes. A lot of people I know scold Pokémon for this, saying that they aren’t being original and are simply re-using old ideas. I strongly go against this theory and believe that the Pokémon remakes are some of the best additions that this franchise has to offer. (Game Freak, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Pokemon, Retro)
