Today is time for a video game monster and today’s creature was a bit different to label since it has appeared both in movies and video games, but I settled with the latter. Today’s monster is the Pokémon Pikachu!
Pikachu is an electric type Pokémon. It is known for it’s awesome electrical abilities such like Thunderbolt and Thundershock. It also kind of looks like a cute yellow mouse! Pikachu evolves from Pichu and will evolve to Raichu if exposed to a thunder stone.
When I was younger I absolutely loved Pokémon! Pikachu will most likely hold a special place in the hearts of people like me who grew up with the original Pokémon. It’s probably because Pikachu was Ash’s Pokémon in the TV series! Like I said I think Pokémon was a great TV show, but unfortunately it isn’t anymore. The producers of the show decided to stick to the old formula and ditch the originality of the show. Every episode today seems to be the same or serve as homage to the old show. The show had so much potential. In my opinion Pokémon was for everyone back in the day but today instead of exploring the potential of the series the producers have decided to play it safe and now the show is aimed only at small children… RIP Pokémon.
Someone start a petition for a Pokémon show or game aimed at a more mature audience. Now THAT could be awesome ;)
