Geez G4JC, just because you don't like Pokemon...
On a side note, I am playing Pokemon White Version, which is seeing it's first week of release in Australia, and it's amazing... no demon chanting or ritual animal slaughters of any kind.
And I already knew about the sell-out to Nintendo.
Greece was equally pagan. Whether or not it stems from there is irrelevant.
Regarding cursing, I'm not talking about swearing. (Seen that on a few kids shows too though, lol)Originally Posted by library.thinkquest.org
I'm talking about wizardy, spell-casting, and that kind of cursing. It's actually quite prominent in fantasy rpg and Saturday morning television...
Pokémon Wiki - Curse -- Usage in TCG
Regarding IRL examples, google "spell casting" "how to curse" or simply take a look at this blog. Found it on google as well: Cat's Rants - Confessions of an Occult Mastermind: Cursing/Controlling Spells
Real occult believers can tell you it does work, but christians would argue Jesus covers all of it and it's fake anyway.
When fiction is this close to reality you need to start questioning how far of "the line" you want to cross.
Don't take my word for it or anyone elses. Pray to God, read his Word, and ask him to show you if it is wrong. This particularity important to anyone actually addicted to it.

Pokémon - a Christian perspective from the Christian Answers Network
I just like it . And it really has nothing to do with the elemetns lol
Because there are like 20 something types lol.
I just dont want to read any of that because I have had enough nightmeres over that already.
I believe us who have played this would be demonic by now if it really had that type of influence. Because if it is AT ALL an influence then we would be showing signs of being demonic lol
Yes, actually. I am not saying we should be in it all of the time. But if it IS bad then shouldnt we know about it to be able to judge for ourselves and with god if a less experienced Chrisitan asks us?
A very good christian younger sister of my youth pastor (she is still in high school but he is all graduated and stuff) reads like these weirdish books. As long as we dont do it so much that we pull away from god then shouldnt it be a good thing?
It's also important for a young believe in the Lord as you mentioned. Perhaps he/she has been struggling with an addiction and/or the occult. Should we simply shrug it off, or pray with them and carefully consider if it would be a good idea to stop reading, listening, and playing this type of entertainment so they can have some time with God.
Brother Wolfy, I'll pray for you.
but look in just word : pokeMON, deMON... In lithuanian language MON is the evil. I am not gona change my opinion about POKEMONS. Here humans can chose what ever they want... I can't change theyr minds... so. Thats all what i wanted to say...
HAve a nice day
God bless you
I dont believe that Pokemon has anything demonic attatched to it, it's simply a game. I used to " play" Pokemon when I was younger..then it got boring lol. It's not like Pokemon are real,"monsters" dont exist.
im gona get out my old poke deck and RULE THE WORLD MUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA because apperntly i have that power
No way is it demonic. =( I sleep with a stuffed totodile. Toto is pure bliss. No evil in him at all.
Dah Pokemans are be of teh evil one!!! Gotta Burn em all!!!
Anyway, Digimon are waaaay cooler.
