P.O.U.N.D is developed by me to examine Pokémon Trainers on their knowledge of the Pokémon world. The four supposed subjects to be included in this test are: - Battle Analytics, which studies Pokémon strengths and weaknesses and how to utilize them in battles. - Genetics, the study of Pokémon genes and how traits are passed to offsprings through breeding. - Ecology, which studies about Pokémon behaviour as well as the interactions among Pokémon and the environment. - Social Studies, the combination of history, geography, and sociology of the Pokémon world.
Pokemon's debut in 1995 sent parents worldwide scrambling to understand what their kids were losing their minds over. Close to 25 years later, those first Pokemon kids are parents themselves!
And the Pokemon phenomenon STILL holds the world in thrall. More recently, Pokemon Go has had fans all over the world out in force, sometimes playing hooky from work and school – even putting themselves in major danger – looking for the elusive little character.
Currently Pokemon's 7th generation is out there, and more than 800 games have been created. Its creators admit they never imagined Pokemon would become the sensation it has. And the way things are going, kids young and old might be throwing Poke Balls for years to come. (We hope so!)
