    If it's on the Internet, it must be true.

    Some highlights:
    After looking aroung the site a little, I'm thinking that this isn't for real, but rather an Onion-esque spoof of Christian extremism. Still good for a laugh though. And this is coming from a guy who considers himself Christian.

    I wonder he'd say about GTA4? :p

    Woah... there are alot of threads like this... I'ma rap it up:
    Pokemon was made for PURE entertainment, and if it was meant to influence he kids into worshiping satan, the occult etc. than it would atleast be rated "T". The games are based off of the creator's love of bug-catching as a child.

    This 'baptist against Pokémon' stuff has been going on for a LONG time.

    Still, it's good for a quick laugh.

    Its not "baptist" against Pokemon. I was raised baptist, and half the people at my church loved Pokemon. I think it's just "A few random extremists" against Pokemon.

    Okay, lemme fix that. This 'extremist vs. Pokémon' stuff has been going on for a long time.

    Shiny Bashamo Isn't it cute ^^

    Oh god, not this again.

    these threads exist since pokémon got popular.

    Pokémon was made purely for entertainment. if pokemon is "the devils work" then what about all the other shows on tv? and almost every game that isn't a dress-up game? That has violence in it right? So that is the devils work to?

    please stop these threads, since they will only result in a flamewar against the Christians, and that would be discrimination.

    If something exists, there is religious campaigning against it.

    Unwritten rule of the internet.

    Hell, i'm sure there is a religion/sect that believes absolutely everyting is evil.

    Aww, I expected better. On the main page, the title of this topic was shortened to "This just in: Pokémon is the...".

    I was hoping it would be "This just in: Pokémon is the #1 best-selling franchise ever" or something.

    I never thought it was for real; I just posted it cause I thought it was good for a laugh.

    "This just in..." is the most misleading title ever. I mean this was old when I first read it.

    The damn article is from 1998 and has been posted here countless times.
    It really stopped getting funny after It got posted THREE TIMES last year.

    Ah, I see. I thought you meant these kinds of articles in general, not this exact one. I didn't see a date on it, and I got it from another forum where it was not regarded as old. (Although in retrospect I suppose on a Pokemon board it would be more common)

    How come they had a pick on Pokémon but not Super Mario? < He's way too popular anyways, yet there's been no riot over "mushrooms" now, has there. Pokémon isn't even "up there" to the majority of Nintendo, except Pokémon Company. Makes you ponder, no?

    Kim62 The avatars suck.

    Relax, it's just a joke.

    Serously though, why are people still posting this? Every work of fiction has been joked as the work of the devil at one point or another, what makes Pokemon so unique?

    You would think that the "accept jesus and get a free Playsation 2" advertisement would tip you off that the website is a joke.

    What the *ERF* are you talking about? Pokemon is Nintendo's second biggest franchise behind Mario and the Second biggest video game franchise in the world, agian, only behind Mario.

    And FYI. Mario DID probably cause some fuddle duddle when he came out, but there was no Internet in 1986 so Idiots could manifest and make articles so we could have a good laugh, and by the time the internet came, the Mario fad was over and the Pokemon fad had just started. Letting Fundelmentalist Christains bitch about "Why X is more popular with kids than the Bible. Therefore X is Satan in Disguse!" without any knowledge or backstory of the series itself.
