Why Pokemon Should Be More Emo

Rate this Entry
Stupidly deciding to check out Pokecommunity again, I came across a complaints thread. You know, because that's what the fandom does best. Of course, I got the age-old complaints that everyone in Pokemon is too happy. You know what, I've given up trying to argue with the complainers anymore. So, if you can't beat them, join them.

Pokemon is too upbeat and lighthearted. You know who else is upbeat and lighthearted? Kids, or at least the stereotypical view of them. That makes being happy bad, because Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is For Kids! We're teenagers/young adults now! We're supposed to hate the world and everything in it, because they don't know what it's like to be like me. Pokemon should become Darker And Edgier to grow up with its target audience, because we couldn't be bothered to simply go watch some other television show. Ash should become an emo jerk because that's what all the cool anime/JRPG protagonists act like, and we can totally relate to those kinds of guys. The girl characters are too happy and girly. They should become more aggro in skimpy clothing, because that would turn on more male viewers. The Pokemon should spew blood everywhere when they fight, because that's totally mature. In fact, why not just get Takeshi Obata of Death Note fame to redesign all the characters? He'd dispense of all this kiddy crap and make all the characters cool. Besides, it worked for Castlevania Judgment!

    DP is the darkest of the Pokemon Anime series.

    Funny, isn't Paul the exact type of loner character these people wanted?

    I like the Anime just the way is, and I only go to the graphics and fanfic fourms over there. I really love the graphics fourm. I don't go to the anime fourm for a reason....

    And I like the kid/happy version of Pokemon anyway.

    Too bad we're talking about a franchise aimed at five-year olds.

    Also...boo on misusing the word "emo" the way the other 95% of the Internet misuses it. And for using the term "JRPG" at all.

    Tis what fanfic is for. And why I write about characters we'll probably never hear from again.

    Misty and Dawn don't have skimpy enough clothing?

    I knew I should have stuck the Pokemon Fandom The Skit designation on here, because some people seemed to have not realized that this was a satire.

    But I do hang my head in shame for the misuse of "emo".
