[quote]wow, you need to get more and actually talk to ppl. creationists are all over the 'evolution' aspect and now there's a pokemon god. pokemon is banned in the middle east for those reasons. i mean damn, at least read about it online[/quote]

Haha yeah I remember that, it was all over the news when Pokemon was starting to get wildly popular in the late 90s. It was also criticized because it somehow promoted real animal violence such as cockfighting, dog fights, etc, which animal defendants weren't happy about either. Very similar to PETA's recent Tanooki Suit freakout when SM3DL got released.

What I find funny is that the catholics think Pokemon is the most evil thing around yet Pope John Paul loved it.

Yeah, you must not be Catholic, because Catholicism is actually fine with evolution and science. It's the southern Baptists that I must deal with every day that hate Pokemon (sorry if I generalized them, I know a lot if people raised in that faith that are normal, pleasant people.)
And TC's country sounds a lot like the southeast United States.

There used to be a little Christian distaste for Pokemon where I lived, I think it was based on there being psychic-types, but that belief is basically nonexistent there now. If TC is serious (which I doubt), then he's talking about a middle eastern nation or one similarly ultra-controlled by religion, because no western country is so opposed to Pokemon to be generalized like that.

That's a new one to me, and I keep track of this. Modifying them how? C.S. Lewis modified God's creations by making them talk. Do Christians quit enjoying Narnia?
