Gamefreak is not being fair with pokemon sexuality.

I don't see why it should work. there are two differing opinions on the topic of sexuality. why take a risk and go against a huge percentage of your buyers? I am perfectly happy they keep out of the issue.

If a KID saw that Attract didn't work on Pokemon of the same gender, he/she would more than likely think nothing of it. I know I'm assuming here, but it's a pretty darn safe assumption.


the mind works wonders, just because they dont think of it doesn't mean they are thinking of the issue, is in the back of their minds. they know damn well that male showing interest female are right. they go about their days in school teasing the other kids who don't have the "male attract female attract male" beliefs.

And it is beyond your power to change that.

I'd like to add furthermore that the topic creator may not even have a basic understanding of eastern culture, where the game happens to be made. Therefore, not only is the topic creating trying to force his/her animals into being a certain sexuality just for the sake of being a pseudo-activist, which is animal cruelty, his/her ignorance on culture is making him/her look extremely racist. It's this kind of savageness that makes me wonder who the real cannibals are sometimes.

Ugh, this makes 3 horrible trolls in one day. Why couldn't the trolls appear when my body temperature wasn't pushing 102?

what you say maybe true, but just maybe I can make a difference. I will have a talk with the game developers on the phone, or email, or whatever it is they prefer. I will make this such a big issue that even the news bulletin have to address it. Starting next week, I will have a team that will help me post this issue on reddit. and you guys can share using w/e social network you are using. I know people out there who want justice and equality, they eat up this discovery that I've made.

You assume I do anything on facebook

Because I socialize the archaic way. With a dry martini, shaken not stirred.

Technically speaking, the games are made with Japan as the primary audience, hence the use of things like cigarettes, drug references, cultural references, etc. Sex and sexuality aren't as taboo in Asian culture as western culture. Homosexuality HAS been in the games before, with BW being the most well-known. It just tends to get censored or lightened up on.

Guys, seriously, this kind of topic gets made at least every other month. Why do people always reply to it. Why.
