For the lulz



No, of course.

I mean, if a mother or father of a child has watched this, and the child saw a harmless Pokémon (for example: Buneary)
and says:"Mom, Dad, look!Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen?" And then the Mom/Dad/whatever said:"NOOOOO, IT'S A DEMON!!!!!!ň.Ó"...
Strange...

But seriosly, that guy is stupid.OR he got a looooot of money for saying some random bull****.

(Sorry for my English)

If pokemon devils work, than almost everything that is produced in anime industry (and not only anime one) must be considered as devil created... It's just stupid...

Haha! I actually went over and watched it again...

Well if you look at reilgion its not that different:

"Enslaving" people so they can spread their belief and that religion to be number 1.

Kinda rellevant. But these kinds of saints always over - react at stuff.

All I can say is, I was laughing so hard all the way through the video. Not only Pokemon, but rock music, primetime television, roleplaying and the internet, will make us go to Hell? And we can't be saved? It sounded like a joke... XD

I'm not religious at all, I don't believe in the devil or witchcraft anyway. I'd like to be able to do what I like in peace without being damned to Hell, thank you very much. O.o

Omfg, Phil Arms, again.
-----
Me and my friend went over to a friend of my mom/her mom's, that they haven't seen in years. She was obviously very religious (not that there's really anything wrong with that). So, being how I am, I brought up how I like Pokemon. She looked surprised and told me it was satanic, and was like "Wtf...?" And yet, I still saw that coming.
Urgh, some people. headache.gif

The only way Pokemon relates to Christianity is Arceas and Giratina playing the roles of God and Satan.

Of course, those calling Pokemon sacrilegious probably haven't even played the game enough to even know that. It's kinda like how my mother didn't allow me to watch Harry Potter as a kid because of its use of magic. Magic's been a very iffy thing to Christians for centuries, so it's somewhat understandable to see someone jumping to the conclusion that Pokemon are Satanic.

After all, witches in the Middle Ages, whether they performed black magic or white magic (white is considered "good magic"), were all considered to have made a pact with Satan. I guess that mindset hasn't left some Christians.

Hi.



No. The people that believe Pokemon to be the "devil's work" see symbolism that isn't actually there and wasn't intended. Just like Uri Geller, who somehow thought that the star on Kadabra's forehead is Anti-Semitic.

If anything, Pokémon is a work of God as it teaches people that you should always care for your friends.

I am religious. However, I separate religion into two even categories: the first category, the one with people like me, thinks rationally and only lets religion run their lives when it's something like Judaism needing kosher foods. The second category is the idiot category, where people who think Pokémon is letting the devil possess children go. Frankly, the members of the second category sometimes make me ashamed to be a part of the religion I have, as they have given us a very bad reputation.

I honestly think it's not the devils work. I didn't watch the video, but I've seen an article saying that some Christian bands were conforming to the world and that was evil therefore the devil. People can me extreme extremists. I am a follower of Jesus, and I don't see anything wrong with liking Pokemon. The only way I would see anything wrong with it and being considered the work of the devil is if you are religious and you let Pokemon consume you in thoughts, actions, and time. Not just pokemon, but anything that keeps you away from strengthening your relationship with God.

If you're not religious, then you don't need to worry about what people say.

I had played pokemon for 3 years already and my friends and I think that pokemon is totally NOT the work of a devil. it is the work of a company called Game Freak and Nintendo. I'm religious, but there really is nothing wrong with pokemon. it's made just for entertainment by humans, not by devils.

It is definitely the devil's work.

I remember back in the day, when I was an obsessed Pokemon fan, I entered the Pokemon fandom.

The whole ordeal turned me into a raving lunatic.

Then are the Japanese demons?

Whatever, the human fears the unknown.


And who says sorcery or witchcraft is bad?
Even if there 'is' a god, he would be the highest 'magician', so does it make him to satan?

Off topic as it may be very few people are aware the white magic is nothing more then a more powerful form of black magic...in other words its not "good". I should know because I studied satanist cults, and things like the wiccan etc. so yes that is a very common and slightly annoying misconception.


For a more "on-topic" comment...My dad is the same way and would probably agree to to some dumb piece of crap like that man in the video mentioned, though that is coming from the same person that claims he is a christian and yet he sees nothing wrong with acting like a child on a day to day basis and trying to make it look like I did something wrong (when in reality I obviously did not). The same person that thinks its ok to break your child's arm (. . .) believes Pokemon is demonic. No, just no.
He said that since Pikachu has a lighting Bolt shaped tail it only "proves" his point further (If his point is "he is full of shit" then yes it does.) He also said that star on the Normal type pokemon is supposed to be a hexagram and because it originated in Japan then its impossible for it to have anything to do with David's Star (Hexagram my arse.)

You make this comment yet you are on a pokemon based site. Please try again later.

Right, you mean the name you choose even though it has no realistic or direct correlation to pokemon with the idea that Celebi was never meant to be either evil nor look like that in the first place....

Awww yeah



I literally do not understand people that look at a video game(or other media source) and think "Oh, no, it's the devil!". You'd think a full grown adult would be able to tell the difference between a fantasy video game and real life.

Sigh.
