I personally think that they should, what with all the older fans I know of. As in, a bit more violence, death mentions ok... Just not so little-kiddish. When I walk around the school, I am ashamed to see kindergartners wearing beat-up Pokemon tees and carrying Pokeball backpacks. You know, they have violent animes on at night, so they could even make an anime.

I, personally, would like to see the Legendary Birds rip stuff's eyes out, and Palkia could first remove Ash's spleen, then implode him.

they definitely should. i always feel embarrased around my friends because of pokemon. only my closest friends know about my obsession(kinda) with pokemon. on the other hand, the whole skool knows about my obsession with the nightmare before christmas. pokemon should be kinda like the nightmare before christmas. it was intended for children (mostly) but teenagers and adults seem to embrace it more.

This is what I mean. At my birthday sleepover, I was so excited about my new copy of PMD2 that that was all I could think about. When I tried to tell a story-'cause I'm a good storyteller, not to brag- about my team, everyone started doing other stuff. I was all like, ";-; it's my birthday..."

Moving to a more mature audience isn't always a good thing. See: Sonic the Hedgehog series.

^ im assuming u are refering to the game shadow the hedgehog? everyone bashes it but i found it to be very entertaining.

nintendo doesnt have to change the whole series. it could be like the legend of zelda series. they have the darker, more mature twilight princess game and the cute, cartoony phantom hourglass game.

I think pokemon is fine the way that it is. Sure little kids play it, but so do adults... My mom played pokemon along with my brother and myself. Not to mention how many of my friends like it.
If you like then game then you shouldn't be ashamed that younger people play it. Also you shouldn't be ashamed that you play or like it just because others don't...

I agree with Shade. Making a game more violent or dark doesn't make it more suitable to play. I like the way pokemon is, and I don't think that aspect of the series should change at all. As far as being ashamed, well I'm not, I don't see a reason to be. Many people at my school know that I play, and some of them do so too.

It makes sense that they make something that's abit more properly made for teenagers but i mean there isn't much they could change about it to make it more teen rated i dunno i support it but i'm not sure there would be much difference

making the pokemon series darker and more mature (or at least part of the series) would open the variety of the audience. they dont have to make the series hardcore with blood, killing and sex (that'd be a weird pokemon game) but some things are a little bit childish like the types of pokemon available. example: pachirisu. nintendo seems to be making everything super-cute and childish. i wish they would change some of those things. i know that they cant just delete pachirisu from the pokedex but they could fix the sprites or something.

I like the pokemon that are super-kawaii! that's what i live for ultra sweet pokemon that can help kick ass ^,.,^ but i think sometimes the attacks are kinda weak it's like it needs to be tougher the way the attacks are shown in the game and how it affects the pokemmon not like bloodall over or huge cuts but your pokemon should start to get tired and slump or become pale to show that it's in pain and that it's tired ^,.,^ that's my idea so far

They should, but it won't happen. The same problem has been occurring with Bionicle. The large teenage and adult fan-base wants the books and movies to be more mature, but Lego won;t do it because they want to keep the young audience. The same thing applies here. Not gunna happen, but I'd like to see it happen if it ever did.

I think Pokemon keeps to the younger audience because there is an overwhelming amount of kids who play it. There are probably more younger kids that play than adults, that it only makes sense to keep to them because there is a sure thing in it. Kids bug their parents for the games and because parents want their child happy they buy it... The Pokemon company will probably keep things this way just for that reasoning.

Edit: It boils down to mostly one thing; PROFIT.

Elite 6??? Lolwut!?



I agree, pokemon is fine the way it is now. But.... I do support a darker game, because it just seems a little more appealing to me with dark music, and a little more gore, because i normally play T or M games, and I think that it could just follow the same storyline as the other games, just ... more for teenage audiences.I have nothing against how it is now, but... i don't like people knowing about me playing it because its ... kind of little kiddish, and if it was rated T...
i dont think i would really care as much.

lol I don't agree with the Pokémon ripping peoples' spleens out and stuff but it'd definitely be interesting if they just toned down on a lot of the very kiddish stuff.. maybe make one where the main characters are actually older than 12 for one.

I voted "Should they?" even though I was confused as to why the answers to a question where questions themselves. tongue.gif
