I mean I'm a fan of the game and everything but when you look at it objectively, it just doesn't make sense.
Who lets their kids leave home to go on a journey to capture WILD BEASTS when they are ten years old? And not only that but the idea of letting the pokemon battle each other would be absolutely outlawed in todays society. Chicken fights in your basement are illegal, Juan. I can't imagine people in our world would condone an electric rat (that'd be Pikachu) shocking the crap out of an enormous whale (Wailord, anyone?).
Discuss other unrealistic aspects.
