Well, one game has an organization that kidnaps a child, brainwashed them to think they're the chosen one and develop an incredible amount of empathy towards Pokemon so that ultimately they'll be able to manipulate everyone else into freeing them for world domination. All the while essentially denying them real world experience in order for them to fulfil that agenda.

So yeah. Pokemon has child abuse as a major plot point.

I have always found Pokemon to be extremely dark. I always saw it as a let's go catch the wildlife in every area, and then pit them against each other in combat. Also let's use them as slave type creatures for all our needs such as digging holes or slave mining.

Think about it. You capture an animal, you take it to a gym to challenge the champion, where you put it against the champion Pokemon. Imagine if they used dogs instead of fictional beasts.

That being said I played a the 3rd gen before and enjoyed the game as it was just a game.
