An opinion piece from 12-year-old Ben that Pokémon is just a passing phase that creates murderers and is simply a waste of time and money.
Well, like most forms of entertainment, it could be argued that it's a 'waste of money', but who are we to tell someone else how much to value their entertainment. Still, I sit back and think how many booster packs I bought back in the day, hunting that elusive holographic charizard. Never got it lol. Pokemon has been popular since I was in the 4th grade, I've been out of college for 4 years now... I think it's safe to say this wasn't a 'passing fad'. Who woulda thought it would last this long?
Lol, a 19 year series is "just a passing phase". What?
