What do you think would happen to the way we live and communicate nowadays, if all of a sudden, Pokémon became reality? I think that it would be cool to have some Pokémon of your own, but those Pokémon might be incredibly dangerous, because games/manga/anime ? real life. Lots of attacks from Pokémon could seriously hurt people, even if they had a 'friendly' intention. Imagine getting hit by some Pokémon using Water Gun: the Pokémon really shoots a bullet made out of water, and because of the massive impact it has, you might even die. Another example: a Pokémon uses Flamethrower: you get hit and you either get a 3rd degree burn or you're dead. If you want to capture a Pokémon, or if you want it to leave from the forest you wish to cut down (just giving examples here), they will most likely offer some serious resistance, just like real animals but with even more powerful attacks. Terrorism: some people might misuse the abilities of certain Pokémon. Think of someone driving by a house and all of a sudden, he/she throws an Electrode through the window. The house could explode and no one can ever blame the person that cause it, because "it was the Pokémon, not me!" Then again, not all Pokémon will be dangerous (like, let's say, Caterpie?) and if one were to train one of those friendly Pokémon, he/she might be able to fight and capture stronger Pokémon, and so on. And some good guys (the police? ) can then track down everyone they know that can possible have cruel intentions and battle them. Kinda like the games/manga/anime. So, all in all, I think it would be pretty cool to have Pokémon in real life, but there will be higher risks.
