How I know this game's target audience is children

For a game with hundreds of made-up monsters not to have any scary ones is the biggest giveaway.
I looked up the scariest looking pokemon to verify. They are NOT scary.

They're not supposed to be. They're supposed to be cool, cute, badass etc.

Don't know about you, but I couldn't even comprehend EV's and IV's till I was 20.


Sure appearances and dialogue may be for children, but the mechanics are not.

Darmanitan, Krickitune, and Steelix are pretty f***ing scary.

That's horrible logic >_>

I mean obviously the game is for kids (Well, the competitive aspects aren't, good luck getting an 8 year old to understand EVs and IVs) but a lack of scary monsters does not mean something is for kids. The opposite isn't true either, scary things can also be for kids. Courage the Cowardly Dog, anyone?

You really get scared from that?
I take it you've never played horror games with monsters to know real fear.

Steelix is a 30 ft snake made of metal. How is that not scary?

Ren and Stimpy was supposedly "for children" too. as were most Nicktoons of the day, but they were very, very clearly made for adults for at least a decade or longer, despite being claimed to be "for children".
