Persian? Fuuuuck that. Slowpoke was the best Gen I Pokemon.
At first, it was pretty shallow, crass and obviously consumerist, but somehow, Pokemon turned out to be one of the few cultural fads of the 90s, along with Harry Potter, that I think has improved the world by existing. Pokemon teaches math, tenacity, patience and strategy. I approve of Pokemon.
Most of my friends at the time were in art school. Art school students LOVED pokemon.
Same reason they loved Britney Spears, I suspect. Some kind of ironic adoption of mass market consumer culture or something.
How old were they when Pokemon came out, OZ?
they had no fucking idea
