Pokémon was Supposed to END in 1999


Nintendo's world of Pokémon is vast and exciting. It's one of the BIGGEST franchises of all time. HOWEVER, it also wasn't supposed to last this long. As it turns out, the games and everything Pokémon related were meant to end with Gold and Silver. What happened?

    0:16 don't like the game? Don't play the game. No disrespect! I'm just saying if you loss interest then you don't have to keep playing. We all have our different views on pokemon and if you don't like it then you don't have to stay in the pokemon fandom if you feel like it isn't for you anymore😌.

    A lot of people don't know this, but there is an old japanese commercial that advertised the first Pokemon movie featuring an older Misty, Prof. Ivy and a small girl who is thought to be Ash and Misty's child. It was a huge spoiler and cut scene from the movie. The movie came out in 1999.

    Some of you don’t know Pokémon merchandise is the #1 seller, #2 is Hello Kitty/Sanrio #3 Winnie the Pooh, #4 Mickey Mouse ‘n friends. Looks like Mickey is losing his popularity slowly. I should know I’m one of those who don’t like him anymore, I LOVE Hello Kitty MORE!!! Not just me but I spoke with a few of my coworkers and none coworkers and they say they like Hello Kitty better. I also noticed that once little kids do like Mickey Mouse but as they grow older they prefer: not just Hello Kitty but also Pikachu, Mario, Spongebob and more characters mostly from Japan. Heck! Even my youngest nephews like DBZ ‘n Naruto more! Let’s not forget Disney is going to have a tough competition with theme parks due to Universal studios now have Super Mario land in Japan, pretty soon in the USA as well and rumor has it that The legend of Zelda will be in the theme park as well as Pokémon too. 😄
