I think they mean as a brand.

I love pokemon games and I keep myself in the dark a little with every new game that releases. I only look up the new game mechanics and moves (if there are any that affect online battles) but when it comes to the new pokemon its so much more fun to randomly encounter a new one when playing!

I like Pokemon more. Please people shouldn't compare Pokemon to Cod. AC is a better comparison.

Just went to a convention and was in a tshirt booth and there were these creepy looking guys that were Extremely giddy when they saw the Pony shirts. I still don't understand the fascination with that show.
