Is Pokemon getting kiddy since
I have reason to believe that ever since Ruby,
Sapphire, and Emerald Version, Pokemon has been getting kiddy.
I've done some "research" by playing the game and looking
through the guides that I have. I do not give 100% details,
such as what the bad guys capture.
Not that it's been that
mature before, but it is too "nice and happy go lucky" than
before. Allow me to demonstrate.
In R/B/Y, your rival
disliked you. In G/S/C, he hates your guts and repeatedly
insults you, because he thinks you're a wimp.
your rival is so nice, and not only helps you out but gives
you advice and has happy friendly battles.
R/S/E, the main antagonists were Team Rocket, and boy were
they powerful. In R/B/Y you could defeat Team Rocket by

move, scratch, is a symbol of its friendship with the other
And for those truly wanting someone to love them

from people saying "you rule I love you" to even a
fangirl who screams your name and begs you to incessantly
shake her hand.
R/S/E could be a virtual cure for
Geez. in previous games you had a "wow, you
may have what it takes to become the Champion" at the very
I do not know what Diamond and Pearl are like,
but I hope they do not follow this kiddy trend.
