The more and more I progress into Pocket Monsters Green, I’ve noticed something…
This game is pretty dark compared to Pokemon. I mean, Pocket Monsters makes the whole role of being a Pokemon trainer seem more of like a society of organized cock fighting.
Pocket Monsters was about having two Pokemon fight to the death, and that’s not only shown by how the pokemon’s status says “DIE” when they faint. People talk about them as if they were expendable. Also, it even explained how Cubone is an orphan because of his parents getting killed by Team Rocket This is probably why most Pokemon fans didn’t even know that until recently.
Pocket Monsters almost feels like a different game just because of the note that the pokemon are apt to die in the process of fighting.
Well, I just got to Lavender Town. I’m excited to see what kind of craziness I’ll find here, since death was already present in the beginning…..
