This must have caused a few mental complexes in children.

Don't forget there was also the banned episode featuring Porygon that gave almost 700 children seizures. Thanks to that, Porygon has never been featured in an anime episode again and Porygon2 and Porygon-Z are the only two Pokemon to never appear in the anime.

Aside from that this sums up my reaction quite nicely.

The satanism is for a few reasons. First is like anon said, that Pokemon are looked at like demons, along with the gym badges also function like magical talismans allowing control of them. There is also the fact Pokemon evolve, which goes against some religious beliefs that our current forms are divinely inspired, and some use magic stones to evolve. Their powers are also paranormal, especially things like Psychic types where the bible says psychic powers come directly from Satan. Finally, the fact many Pokemon embody or practice East Asian spiritual or mystical concepts means they don't align with Christian and Catholic beliefs.

Racism is used with two examples. The most widely known is Jynx, who used to have black skin. This was because a cultural critic, Carole Boston Weatherford, filed complaints about Jynx being a negative black stereotype and got a large group to agree. This is why Jynx's skin color is purple now, despite her being based on either ******* fashion or a Nordic princess depending on who you talk to. Another one is Lenora, the second gym leader in Black and White, and how she appears to be a "Mammy character".

Pokemon has also been accused of promoting animal cruelty because the battles resemble cockfights. Pokemon has also been sued because of gambling, and a psychic claims that Kadabra is based on an evil version of him. Funniest of all is that Muslims have actually claimed that Pokemon is a Jewish plot to get their children to renounce their faith, leading to a ban of Pokemon merchandise in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Qatar.

Sorry for the wall of text, but there is a lot of information on Pokemon controversies. If you want to see them all, go here: bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_controversy

There's this crazy religious talk show on T.V. that discusses how many things are related to the devil. In on episode, they brought up pokemon.
They decided it was grooming the children for demon summoning, by training them to be the masters of these creatures. They saw it as you were catching weak demons, fighting other demons, and making/catching the strongest demons so you could be the "champion" with the strongest demons in the world.

Because of Evolution in Pokemon.
Pokemon is accused of teaching kids Nazism, satanism, and racism.
but the theory of evolution is totally different from the evolution in this cartoon.


Its a shame that some people hate evolution theory so much they don't allow their children to watch Pokemon.
