From the Facebook group: If you reject evolution, then how the FUCK do you explain Pokémon?

  1. Except that it’s NOT evolution at all!

  2. Yes it is! It says so, right there! Can you mate a Raichu with a Pikachu?

    the sad thing is some creationists actually imagine evolution to happen like this.

    In Pokemon, they use the word “evolution” when they really mean “metamorphosis”. What happens to these critters is the equivalent of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

    Just one more why that cartoon screws with childrens brains- besides the fact it teaches them it’s OK to round up animals and have them fight each other, and bet on the results.

  8. Cry a river wow. Who cares it all means the same thing and just bcos its called evolves does not mean kids are going to immediately think of religion.

    I myself am quite happy in sticking to my Plush Pokemon where they always stay the same and do not evolve/metamorph they stay the same all the time.

  9. Jesus Christ, people.

    It’s called ‘lulz.’ It doesn’t always involve proving a point.

    *rolls eyes*

    There is no evolution if you don’t stray from the species.

    Holy crap people…
    A: It’s a picture; it’s supposed to make you laugh.
    B: It’s an old Japanese game that probably didn’t really care about the definition of evolution….chill…

  13. …SO, how bout that Pokemon evolution…?

    Wow guys, way to be light-hearted.

    For those that actually get up-in-arms abotu “geez it’s not really evolution”:

    it’s called BAD TRANSLATION for a then-CHEAP GAME. ‘x3;

    A literal translation of the word used in the Japanese games is indeed “metamorphosis.”

    But then it wouldn’t be very exciting when it said “What? Your Pokemon is metamorphosing!” xDD
