Everybody has a 가장 좋아하는 part when it comes to the phenomenon known as Pocket Monsters (or 포켓몬스터 for short). For some, it’s the battles and the strategies, while for others, it’s the 포켓몬스터 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 포켓몬스터 phenomena.

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

1) Cooperation

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

2) Strategizing

포켓몬스터 is a good thing for another reason: it teaches how to think strategically. Unlike some 인기 toys with little 또는 no educational value, 포켓몬스터 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 의해 quotes, either.

For example, in the games, there is a 포켓몬스터 called “Magikarp”, which is considered the most useless and weak 포켓몬스터 in the game. But after struggling, hard work and determination, the Magikarp is able to evolve into an extremely powerful 포켓몬스터 known as “Gyarados”. The 포켓몬스터 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 당신 don’t struggle, 당신 don’t improve.

4) Reaching Goals

In Pokémon, the Trainers and their 포켓몬스터 learn that never giving up eventually pays off in the end. For the Pokémon, it’s learning to succeed, and that’s usually 의해 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 당신 don’t succeed, try, try again”. In other words, the 더 많이 당신 practice at something (especially if it’s a talent 당신 have, 또는 something 당신 simply 사랑 to do), the better 당신 get at it.

5) The Importance of Rules

In order to be a 포켓몬스터 master, the player has to teach his 또는 her 포켓몬스터 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 글쓰기 rules when 글쓰기 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 포켓몬스터 master. This mirrors development — cognitive, social and psychological, across the life span. We all have monsters to keep at 만, 베이 and mysteries 또는 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.”
