"Pokémon wasn’t just a hugely successful video game. Following the auspicious sales figures, Pokémon became a household name, spawning TV shows, toys, clothing and movies. Everywhere you looked, Pokémon was there trying to make a grab for your wallet like a carefully placed hobo, and rightly so. Game Freak had created a game that encompassed the youth of the nineties. It was current, fun to play and trading Pokémon was the talk of the playground, or the office for those that would admit it.
With all this praise, all these accolades, how is possible that I despise Pokémon with such a passion? It’s all about evolution!"
