And since parents aren't even reading it, I find this ironic now.

    That said, I also don't want to see XY get a higher rating after how Pokemon has long presented itself as a kid's game for all these years.
    me either.Do you want to see blood in a pokemon game? then No,its ALWAYS E

    I HATE MYSELF!

And the parent blamed the pokemon company for not stating that you need to be able to read to understand the game on the blurb of the case. Wut.

    So yeah if nothing else a higher rating might be a helpful neon sign to parents that you shouldn't be giving these consoles and games to kids who can't actually walk and talk yet -_-
    It even says on the box: "basic reading ability is required"; and really, people who don't bother asking people or looking up stuff about games before buying them for their small children are pretty dumb

    And I guess people who aren't around video games a lot might not realize how much reading and comprehension is actually in them, especially if when you say "video game" they think of Call of Duty or like NES games or something. Or if you were an awesome parent, you would help your kid understand the game and kinda play it with them
    It's not just the lack of research/common sense. What I find hilarious is that parents give $200+ video games and consoles to their kids and are then puzzled when the kid drops custard on it/vomits on it/doesn't have the basic motor skills to play it.

    Dunno 'bout you guys but when I was 4 I was still at the spinning around in circles and eating grass stage. Dealing with a fiddly DS stylus and sitting still through the opening credits would've been way beyond me, let alone sympathizing with the plight of N and Team Plasma. My parents moved valuables out of my reach - they didn't hand me one to keep me quiet for an afternoon. Not unless they wanted it in pieces by the end of the day.

    I hope the Pokemon rating stays the same. If it doesn't it's a bad omen - either that the games have taken a darker turn that isn't really necessary and will alienate the younger audience (and I don't see this happening) or, as I suggested before, that some muppet somewhere complains that they're too mature for an E rating and so the rating is changed needlessly.

    It was PG (parental guidance) in my country until they removed the game corner. Now it is G (general). But PG is basically another G, so it didn't make much of a difference.

    i think the rating is fine the way it is.
    i'm all for complex plots but they can do that without the raise in rating

    If Pokemon wants to do bloodshed and "mature themes" then it's best for them to make it a spin-off and not draw a lot of attention to it, like not featuring it on the website.

    I don't think this will happen. Pokemon has been getting more complex in story in recent games, but I don't think it'll get so complex that it needs to be rated higher. Well, it isn't even a matter of complexity. I don't think ratings have anything to do with how "complex" a story is; just the content that comes along with it.

    So, I should say that I don't believe Pokemon will feature content that younger children shouldn't be exposed to. It doesn't need to do that to be better. Pokemon is not meant to be game for more mature audiences.

    All Pokémon games are for young kids, so Nintendo do not want to expose blood-related content. Generally saying, Nintendo allows graphic violence but not p*rn themes. They said, if a video game developer allows pornographic content, the image will be forever tarnished. But this (Pokémon) is a kids' game, so even T-rating will be extremely unlikely.

    Though its highly unlikely, I'd like to see a game more fit for teens and adults...Yeah that'd be cool...

    I would probably be too soon to change the pokemon series to a E +10. However I believe B/W is the start and X/Y should continue with this trend. Anything higher than E +10 should be reserved for spin-offs also welcomed and even this spin-offs should be small if any.

    Thus I would suggest a process of evolving the series into a E10/E+10 series but nothing higher.

    Honestly, Kingdom Hearts has one of the most mind-numbingly complex plots known to man, is completely child-friendly (it's only as dark as the average Disney movie, for obvious reasons) and DDD is rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence. That is, whacking evil creatures with a giant key.

    Complex plots are completely removed from ratings. They only thing that could make the rating go up is if the attack animations show Pokémon attack each other directly (that is, physical attacks have animations that look as if the attacker touches the attackee). And even then, the fact that the game is turn-based keeps the "Fantasy Violence" down.

    The main series games will never likely be rated above E, E10+ maybe, because there's no reason. The plots and characters can get as complex as they want as long as there's no blood, hard violence, sex, or drinking. That's all the ESRB cares about.

    It is entirely unnecessary. There are ways to get into some pretty serious business without upping the rating, for instance check out this scene from a G-rated film:

    That's only anime canon. The ages of the trainers in game canon aren't specified.

    Some of them are, actually: Red is confirmed to be 11, and Hilda and Hilbert are officially older than 10. Not that that has any bearing on the age of the player, mind.
