    Well see my parents think that pokemon is demonic cause there are ghost pokemon and some pokemon have magical powers, and because some pokemon are physic. I look online and i'm starting to think that to. But i'm mad cause I have been playing pokemon for years. So can somebody help me and give a link that pokemon is not demonic or witchcraft in any way?

    It's a work of fiction.

    It is demonic though because the catchphrase/subtitle, "gotta catch em all" sets children up for am impossible masochistic task.

    Technically, it's just a video game, so I don't think its demonic or whatsoever

    Pokemon was created by the devil himself to trick kids into getting possessed by demons. It's probably already too late for you. The demon is ingrained in your soul.

    Tss... I suppose you'd say I'm demonic too, by my choice of username? It's paranoia, maybe even paranoia brought about by religious fanaticism. Tell them to relax, it's a game, nothing more. Other than Nintendo's Money-printing software, that is XD

    They are in no way demonic.

    And anyways, I emphases this:

    IT'S JUST A GAME/ANIME. No way is it related to religion in anyway.

    Can I get an explanation of what you mean by demonic? My baby sitter told me the same many years ago about Digimon.... I had those digivices and shook em like crazy. Explained to her what Digimon stood for (Digital Monsters) and what the show is about and how the toy works. She called em demonic and never to bring 'em in her house ever again.....

    Of course I brought it every single day after until the batteries gave out.

    To this day I don't know what this really means. Please explain! [​IMG]

    See they don't think the game is like satins game. They just think that the game has magic and physics in it and thats why they won't let me play it.

    Which is stupid.

    I have nothing against your parents, but seriously, tell them, straight to their face, it's just a game.

    But ghost pokemon aren't bad.
    It's just a type that allows to use magical moves.
    That can't influence anything!

    WTF? LOL, religion has really gone to town tagging everything that disagrees with their notions as "demonic". I suppose you can't read/watch fantasy-fiction, too? Man, I feel sorry for you and your soon-to-be-obsolete pokemon. Enjoy the childhood, will ya?

    Really I think you are just thinking too deep into the game. Yes the game does have like "psychics" and "ghosts", but I see no logical reason how it could represent anything of witchcraft or any real reason to threaten anyone's religion.
    You have to remember, it's just a video game and honestly thinking that deep into something that shouldn't be taken seriously really just isn't go for anyone, it only cause paranoia, ignorance, and future conflict in separating fact from fiction. It's best just to remember that it's only a video game and has no real bounds in the real world.

    Yes but they don't like those magic types of games. But does pokemon really have magic in it or is it just animals with powers.

    Quite right. Physics is science and we all know that science is the Devil's work.
