No. Pokemon is not the devil's work. To think such an idea is absolutely pathetic.

First of all, that man is arguably one of the worst religious people out there, based on this video alone. Pokemon is fictional, and nothing but. He claims that playing the game implants the idea that kids can wield destructive power.

...

Need I say more?
They're nothing but pixels made for the enjoyment of kids. You can't harbor the power of fire, ice, electricity, etc. based on a simple game. The idea of the game is to give kids a sense of power, in a different form; making your own decisions.

Take the battle screen for instance. You have your basics; fighting, using an item, switching a party member, or running. By choosing one of these, you are making a decision that will change the battle entirely. This can be reflected in real-life obstacles. To overcome these, you have to make a decision.

Here's the layman's term for Pokemon; pure enjoyment, without all the seriousness. All in all, it's just a fun game.

No.

I think the heavily religious people mostly got riled up due to the fact that there were Psychic Pokemon, particularly the ones named "Abra", "Kadabra", and "Alakazam", since they thought it had something to do with magic and witchcraft. There was a similar reaction when Harry Potter started becoming famous, since he attends a school of "witchcraft and wizardry". And since to those people, witchcraft is the work of the devil, they see Pokemon (and HP) as a way for Satan to tempt children. headache.gif I can only how they reacted to Arceus, since it's pretty much viewed as the Pokemon equivalent of a deity. teehee.gif Some of them might even hate the fact that Pokemon "evolve". lol.gif

If only they could see that the anime actually shows kids the importance of hard work, friendship, loyalty/trust, and teamwork... stuff that anybody from any belief would agree are good morals.

Lol where is 5th gen?



...well... this is definitely one of my least favorite parts about being a part of a Abrahamic Religion- people like this who think something like Pokemon is 'satanic'. I am pretty sure a lot of Islamic countries had issues (I think they were mainly around the GSC era, by now there aren't as many issues) with Pokemon for the same or similar reasons, probably due to it's used of evolution(which I don't see why it would be so threatening, whether evolution is true or not theres no real reason to care about it since it as near to no effect on us at all) but thats beside the point.

Still it is hard to believe this guy is SERIOUS, it's hard to believe he isn't just screwing with the crowd. It's little monsters that fight each other...? I may have read very little of the bible, but I am pretty sure there isn't a part where someone controls 'demons' and makes them fight each other, or even other people. Also, if Pokemon really made kids worship the devil, wouldn't there be some kind of news reports of children behaving oddly after playing these games?

There are many kinds of religious people, and an unfortunate few are like this. Best to ignore them, they probably have little understanding of what they are worshiping much less what they see as 'evil'.

Obviously a No.

It's just attention hungry people that want to get attention by saying that anything that is really popular with kids must have some connection with the Devil.

If you think hard enough.. or don't.. you can make anything sound like it's evil.

To me, it's just a toyetic show and a game series that I enjoy.

I love arguments like this. It's so amusing. I've seen little fights of really hardcore religious folk and people who play pokemon/disagree with the religious folk break out online, it's so amusing to watch. <3

Pokemon is completely safe, and I'm a Christian who believes that. There's always going to be extreme groups that freak out and try to find a devil behind every bush.

Having said that, I have met kids over the internet who think Pokemon actually exist and want to capture them to become possessed by them and become demons themselves. (It got really weird listening to them.) When people take toys and games way too seriously, that's when you intercede. However, this is more of an issue of a person being unable to distinguish fantasy from reality, and not an inherent issue with the work in question.

This man is "Power" hungry and wants American -Ect.- Children to feel bad about Watching "Pocket Monsters".

Pokemon is Fictional.
It is a Game were you do combat with a "fictional Character" -Or an actual person via Wifi.- and can Train pokemon and learn new things.

Many Teenagers think Pokemon is "gay",But i disagree. No kid has never,Ever,Not heard of Pikachu.

I'm almost 13,And i loved pokemon since i was Born,But some people think as a Furret as "Satan's Pet" or whatever.


And yes,Some pokemon are infact,From Mythologies!!!

Take Ninetails for Example,Ninetails is Based of the Japanese Dark Lord.

BUT,It doesn't mean Nintendo is gonna Quit Dude.

He's off his Nut.

And i'll say to Anyone,ANYONE,Who thinks Pokemon is "Gay",Is calling,Companionship,Friendship,Teamwork and Trust "Gay" aswell.

Pokemon HAS been banned in Saudi Arabia for allegedly promoting Zionism through the use of the star of David and promoting gambling in the games themselves. Well, it's a theocracy there, but that's another issue for another day.

I'm religious, I play Pokemon. I don't see what the problem is. I don't see any of "The Devil's Work" here. Hell, the pokemon don't even DIE.

When people say pokemon is satanic, I laugh loudly and unnessacerily, then jackslap whoever said it across the face. SERIOUSLY, PEEPS. CHILL OUT. Just cause your kids play pokemon dosen't mean they're gonna start a cult.
Be realistic. I have a friend whose mom thinks 'pokemon' stands for 'Pocket Demons'. She is very wrong.

No.
He just never had a childhood.

Now, look, this guy never played the game.

First off, the Pokemon don't "kill" the people.
They faint the Pokemon, which are easily healed.

Second, the player doesn't steal the Pokemon's power.
The player starts a relationship with the Pokemon and fights alongside it.

Anyone who's calling Pokemon gay is calling Companionship,Friendship,Teamwork and Trust "Gay" aswell.

OF COURSE POKEMON IS EVIL/DEMONIC/BAD!!!
ARE YOU SERIOUS? THEY'RE CREATURES BASED ON REAL LIFE ANIMALS, THAT REPEAT THEIR NAMES OVER AND OVER, LIKE THEY'RE TRYING TO CURSE YOU!

Now seriously, no, they're not the devils work

I once heard that disney movies are also satanic. And pornographic.
But then think about it: did you have a happy childhood? Did you turn out allright? Or were you corrupted by those evil-doers from Pokemon and Disney??
Seriously, think about it. 'Cause my childhood was filled with disney-everything and pokemon-obsessing, and I turned out allright.

Oh yeah, that guy facepalm.gif I laughed at his stupidity when I saw the full video of that last summer. People associated with his religion commented on the video, saying he was an idiot for thinking that. I think someone commented saying "Jigglypuff is possessed by Satan" as a joke, in which to laugh at him. And the fact he compared Russian Roulette to a card game was dumb. A gun isn't the same as holding a card, lol. Well, if he was right--which he's not--then I guess making friends with cute critters is "Satan's Work"
