Do you
love Pikachu? Yes! Do you know his age? No! I can tell you that he is an old uncle. Have you ever wondered why Pokémon has been so popular for such a long time? I have four reasons.

Firstly, the character design is superb. Some people like them because of their evolution. Some like them because of the cute characters, such as Charmander, Pikachu, and Jigglypuff. And others like them because of their unique abilities. When Pokémon designers first created these characters, there were only 150 of them. And now, the amount of Pokémons is almost 1000. The numbers make a huge difference.

Secondly, the Pokémon designers make different things, such as books, cartoons, toys, and games. So we can see Pokémons everywhere in the real world. My favourite Pokémon books are The Four Star Challenge and Psyduck Ducks Out. Do you want to know a secret? These books are available in our library. Don’t thank me. Thanks to our amazing teachers.

Thirdly, Pokémon has a clear storyline that is hard to forget. Let me tell you in case you don’t know. Pokémon trainers must collect all the 72 badges to become a Pokémon Master. In order to get these badges, they have to fight gym leaders along with their Pokémons.  These battles are fascinating. If my mum allows, I would like to watch them throughout the night. Sadly, this will never happen.

Last but not least, the Pokémon company always keeps on coming up with new ideas. These innovations bring us even more fun. For example, in 2016, they released a mobile game called Pokémon GO. This game made the whole world crazy. Last year, they published a game called Pokémon Unite. Early this year, Pokémon Legends Arceus came out. And, in November, a new game called Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will steal your money. Please keep your wallet safe. However, I must say,  millions of players enjoy these games. So Pokémon can become even more popular.

In the end, Pokémon has already been a part of many peoples’ childhood. For the last 30 years, they have never disappointed us. And I believe, these little, cute monsters will still be in our pockets for another 30 years.
