    Or maybe you're talking about J? Yeah, the J is the epitome of sunshine and lollipops.

    I'm not saying Pokemon isn't for kids, I'm saying nothing really changed for the games or anime in terms of censoring what little violence the games had :/
    They erased references to death whenever possible, don't even mention gambling even though you're allowed to do it, Pokémon battles are treated as 100% safe for Pokémon now, etc.

    A memorial to "Tectonix" the dead Onix in FrLg, and yet another gravesite in DPPt, not to mention many of the dex entries of the new ghost Pokemon beg to differ.

    Yeah, being dragged to the underworld by pedo-ballons is censoring death? Its like censoring a penis with another penis. Oh yeah, and Canalave Library.

    As for gambling, that's at the hands of localizers as Game Freak sure hadn't toned it down. Portrayal of Maylene's dad and her dialogue in the villa about her dad being gone a lot makes him seem like a problem gambler. This is coming from the english version.


    Pokemon battles have always been treated as safe.

    Oh, and those tanks in the Galactic Veilstone HQ, yeah those are disturbing. Try pressing "A" infront of them.

    Child abandonment on Giovanni's part as well.

    Yeah, sunshine and lollipops. Hardly.

    Not army tanks.

    Those glass cylindrical things filled with a green liquid, which I refer to as a tank, you know, like "fish tank"

    Basically outside in the hallway leading to Cyrus' room. Team Galactic's cover was that they were researching new sources of energy, if I recall, Rowan said something about Pokemon releasing mass amounts of energy upon evolution. Team Galactic tried to recruit Rowan. Considering that they were probably working on multiple ways to get to Palkia and Dialga, it wouldn't be surprising if they tried to harness evolutionary energy in a way to rip through the fabrics of space-time.

    He must've released it wait a minute why bother questioning it? Just go along with the game!

    One of the few Nuzlocke canon moments in the game.

    Not to mention they were abusing the Lake Trio and caused them considerable pain

    But that aside, for the kids, Green just boxed the rat in the PC and was looking for a Cubone in the Tower.

    Or, like someone said, YOU killed it in the previous battle.

    Which one is more likely?

    I always just figured he boxed it in favor of other Pokemon to be honest. Maybe he realized becoming the Champion would be tough with a Raticate and he needed something stronger and he doesn't seem like the sentimental type anyway.
