ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius on December 28, 1999 Dear Miss Jan:
Thanks for the info.
Since the link you gave is time sensitive, the Article may be gone by the time people get to it. So I have copied the article below. This is from the Crispin News (http://www.crispinmusic.org/news.htm), December 17, 1999:
The problem with Pokemon Parents should take a good look at the Pokemon toys. They are not as innocent as they seem. The name Pokemon means pocket monster. The producer of Pokemon also produces Dungeons and Dragons materials. The characters in these games are headstrong, stubborn, constantly quibbling and are vindictive. Some characters: Jesse and James are Prone to cross-dressing. Brock has a fascination with the opposite sex. Some schools have forbidden students to bring these cards to school because kids were fighting each other to get more cards. Some of the collector cards deal with magic powers and casting spells. Kadabra has a pentagram on his forehead, SSS on his chest, and is giving the satanic salute with his left hand. Pokemon subtly suggests that kids accept humanistic wisdom and occult spirituality. Pokemon is designed to be a stepping stone to harder occult oriented games like Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons. The first and central rule of Pokemon is to accumulate. Pokemon teaches that the more Pokemon you have, the more power you are. Hence the slogan: GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL. Parents should look at the cards and games first, then explain to their children why they are wrong and dangerous.

P.S. I have not read the entire report, nor have I looked into this toy/game, so I cannot personally vouche for Dr. Brown's assessment at this time. I just offer it here for consideration. Back to Index Page
