    I just received the Pokemon newsletter, and it says "return to Kanto with Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow on february the 27th, 2016", with... the PEGI 12 logo :blink:

    Seriously, anyone knows why? Even X/Y/OR/AS are rated PEGI 7... Did those games had some kind of not-so-family-friendly material? Even if I played them long ago, I don't remember anything shocking... Does the game lacks the "banned words" system on naming Pokemons (that could be an issue with online)? Is it because of Lavender Town and its creepy ambience? Or is it something else?

    Apparently, the American version of the GB game was rated "Everyone", so I really don't see why the VC title is rated like this... :unsure:

    Probably cause of the slot machines, nothing to worry about.

    Ow, I forgot PEGI's policy about "gambling"... That's probably it now that I think about it :unsure:

    Times change, and the first generation had more mature themes than recent generations.

    The only mature things in the game are Misty's sprite and the slot machines that's it.

    Gen. I was Team Rocket stealing Pokémon to re-sell them for profits, more recent generations were destroying the entire universe :P

    It's purely because of the slot machines. It was said that they removed slot machines from Pokémon when new laws passed because keeping them in would require them to raise the ratings.

    If this can be considered as "mature" nowadays, we have a SERIOUS problem...

    Don't French people know the difference between a swimsuit and censored nudity??? I hate it when pokemon is mistaken for something not for kids when it is caitered to a young audience unless edited by said audience to be otherwise but hentai is where I have to draw the line..

    team plasma castle.
    to be honest with you, it could have had something to do with the game corner. or even misty's sprite as it was a bikini, either way it is what is it and i doubt it will be changed anytime soon. if anything it will probably be changed on release, or near release date for the vc versions of these games.

    Actually are they going to cut out the gambling in the EU release? If they don't that could explain the ratings difference.
