Why is pokemon so popular I don't get it. I mean there are tons of GB games plus a couple of bigger console games. There is a TCg game thats been around for awhile. Plus all the toys made. Don't get me started on the series itself. I think there is even a manga or something out there in Japan. My question is why is pokemon so bloody popular. The Tv show is so idiotic. Nothing that happens in the show would ever really happen. o I'm talking about the existance of Pokemon. I'm talking about the interaction of Ash and his friends with people they meet. It's so messed up. Then the games have the same exact prinicples. Sure add a pokemon here change graphics there but it's all the same. Catch Pokemon collect them all beat gym leaders. This question has been bugging me ever since reading about the new Pokemon GCN game coming out. So please can someone answer this questiona and put my mind at ease again

well its mostly popular with just the littler kids.
the show is so idiotic cause its meant for kids between the ages of 3-8 or something like that
when i was littler, probably like 7 or 8 years old i couldnt get enough of that crap! i have no idea what i liked about it though...
the games and such are just the attempt at trying to keep the pokemon fad going since it kinda died since it first came out to america.
well i hope that put your mind to rest at little bit!

Pokemon was an original idea. That is why it became so popular, especially with young crowds of children starting all over japan, and soon into the america's. I mean, the sheer idea of the show, having these magical creatures with powers in which you could order around, brought people into the show. That why i believe it was so popular.

Pokemon should have died ages ago..... the only reason it hasn't is cause the creator decides to add 150 more of the little suckers when the series starts to die again.....

The TV show... blows. The games... are all the same. What is Nintendo thinking?! The series shoud have died two or three seasons ago, and instead of sending out Ruby and Saphire, they should have skipped to Emarald, which is like Ruby 2.0. I am sure many agree with me. But the reason Pokemon is popular is because there are people that still love that kind of stuff, you know, the upgrades, the new pokemon and all that.

It airs on local television. That's one thing that got it to be popular. Not everyone has cable.

It was a bit of an original idea, but for me, it died pretty quickly. The games were great at first and then died, just like the anime. Meh. I'm just guessing people love pokemon at first, then sometime later they suddenly don't like it. It loses what made it fun at first.

But it was one of the animes that didn't sound so bad in english and the 'gotta catch em all' idea was quite original at the time. Maybe that's why it was popular?

You know what of the first thing that I like about Pokemon is that IMO it really helps making anime successful in the United States. I didn't really like the first game, but I've thougth that I had to buy it to know what all this fuss was about and I was quite disapointed, but oddly enough I really like Silver and Gold, but not Ruby. I think that collecting differents "pets" is quite appealing. And the game is quite easy, and now the gameplay is well-known.

And there are at least four mangas about Pokemon. And I still watc the anime cause it was one of the recent ones aired where I live and it is a perfect anime to clear/empty the mind (I guess that I spend too much time reading/watching news, so that's a nice change).

I liked pokemon at the beginning, and I still like the first two games, and a few episodes of the anime, but then they made more and more and it all got so senseless, which is why it isn't as popular anymore (except with my 2 year old cousin, but he's more into Spiderman anyway)

Teletubies own pokemon with an iron fist. Plus the animators are getting kind of lazy. Going back to my pokemon game, I sware there are like 5 different versions of pikachu, and yet they're differnet, and people dont seem to notice. The only thing they should be doing with pokemon is increasing quality of the games. I mean, when I'm bored, I go to play it a little, and somewhat enjoy it. Wouldnt mind something better.

Well, speaking as a former little kid and a girl, most of the girls i think liked Pokemon because of the cute little creatures, such as Pikachu, and of course the other cute creatures. It stops getting cute after a while because they run out of Pokemon to create and look cute. For the guys i think, it's because they get to see how powerful the pokemon are. Plus with all the advertising and money they spend on Pokemon, It has to be popular. Non-cable Television cost so much that parents don't want to buy it and kids live off of saturday morning cartoons so yeah. Everyone starts out with Pokemon anime as a child.
