Everybody has a Избранное part when it comes to the phenomenon known as Pocket Monsters (or Покемон for short). For some, it’s the battles and the strategies, while for others, it’s the Покемон evolving into different and stronger forms, which is because of hitting a certain level, using an Elemental Stone, friendship and time of day, among other factors. Me? I like all the aspects of the Покемон phenomena.

So with that, here’s my reasons for why I like Покемон (which I hope that every Poké Фан out there will notice as well):

1) Cooperation

The game of Покемон is quite complex, so talking with other fellow Покемон fans, especially when comparing battle strategies, is a good idea when it comes to figuring out the game — and Покемон is a good thing in that way, since it happens to be something that gets kids talking with each other, too

2) Strategizing

Покемон is a good thing for another reason: it teaches how to think strategically. Unlike some Популярное toys with little или no educational value, Покемон is different in that it requires chess-like concentration and the ability to think ahead in sophisticated ways.

3) Lessons about Life

There are so many amazing examples of how this game teaches about life — and not just by quotes, either.

For example, in the games, there is a Покемон called “Magikarp”, which is considered the most useless and weak Покемон in the game. But after struggling, hard work and determination, the Magikarp is able to evolve into an extremely powerful Покемон known as “Gyarados”. The Покемон was one of the most powerful in the Generation 1 games, defeating nearly everything in its path.

And that shows a good lesson there: if Ты don’t struggle, Ты don’t improve.

4) Reaching Goals

In Pokémon, the Trainers and their Покемон learn that never giving up eventually pays off in the end. For the Pokémon, it’s learning to succeed, and that’s usually by practicing with their moves and doing well with them — basically sharpening old techniques and learning new ones. For the Trainers, it’s completing the Pokédex and battling other Trainers (sometimes in rematches). Like the old saying goes, “Practice makes perfect”, which is very true, along with “If at first Ты don’t succeed, try, try again”. In other words, the еще Ты practice at something (especially if it’s a talent Ты have, или something Ты simply Любовь to do), the better Ты get at it.

5) The Importance of Rules

In order to be a Покемон master, the player has to teach his или her Покемон to follow the rules. It’s a basic rehearsal for life; if one follows the rules, they get rewarded (although there are exceptions, such as changing the Письмо rules when Письмо fanfiction, but that’s another story).

“The age-old theme of the journey is played out here, and one faces good vs. evil in the quest for the holy grail, i.e. becoming the greatest Покемон master. This mirrors development — cognitive, social and psychological, across the life span. We all have monsters to keep at бухта, залив and mysteries или problems to solve throughout our lives.

“Pokémon provides a stimulus for learning and practicing life skills and other learning skills that will be useful later. Children are drawn to this challenge because of their very nature, needing to deal with their fears and vulnerabilities.”
