Pokemon is like any long running kids entertainment. It's not meant to grow up with you, it's always meant to be there for the kids whose age you once were.
"For some members, Pokémon is like an after-school sport. Leo believes Pokémon is a valid substitute for an after school activity."
"Pokemon is like masturbation. Everybody's doing it, but you're not supposed to talk about it."
"Pokemon is like an ultra-complex game of rock-paper-scissors. Everything is strong against something, and weak to something else. So what is Psychic weak to? Bug and Ghost. Great! I picked up this Gastly in Lavender Town. And hey, in the anime, Ash beat Sabrina with nothing but a Haunter, so all I have to do is get this thing up to level 25 and I'm set!"
''Pokemon' is like a soap opera for kids; the story never ends,'' said Norman Grossfeld, president of 4 Kids Productions, the corporate division that produces the series. ''It's different from other shows, where the bad guy gets battled and then it's over. Here, if you miss a show, you feel you've missed something.''
"Pokemon is like an iPhone. Little changes every year but it's enough to keep the rabid fans hungry for more. I liked it, but haven't played anything past the GBA version. It's essentially the same damn game over, and over, and over, and over, and over, (tired yet?) and over, and over again."
