of character presentations which are not episode clippings. This
particular sequence of the introduction begins with
the main character, Ash Catchem, joined a second later by his
companions Misty and Brock. Next
comes the image of the antagonistic team Rocket (Jessie & James),
displaced immediately by their 3 Pokemons, centered upon the cat
“Meowth.” Then comes the image of Ash Catchem's arch-rival, Gary,
followed by receding views of 3 different Pokemon in succession as the
camera seems to pull backwards very rapidly. Next, you see Ash

Monsters” began as a video game or trading card game, (I am not exactly
sure of the sequence of events) and when it expanded into an animated
series, the name was shortened to “Pokemon.” Knowing this, set aside
the Pokemon connection for a moment, and consider the impression made
by someone saying that they have a monster in their pocket. There
is culturally inherent sexual innuendo involved in
the idea of having, or showing, a 'pocket monster.' It seems the
sort of ploy depravity would use trying to
seduce a child. One
could try to argue that there is no connection, but the very fact that
there is connection enough to argue about should be connection enough
to concern any parent or guardian of a young, impressionable mind.

battling to become a "master" or aspiring to be a "breeder." To

Japan, Japanese animation is primarily adult oriented. It often
contains violence, eroticism, and sexuality. Even so, why
have such things being woven into what is
unquestionably a children's animated series? Although I cannot

provide more suggestion and evidence of it.
mons veneris, Latin for “hill of Venus” (Roman
Goddess of love) is the pad of fatty tissue that covers the pubic bone
below the abdomen but above the labia. The mons is sexually
sensitive in some women and
protects the pubic bone from the impact of sexual intercourse. Knowing
this, consider what is implied to “pokie mons.” Though “Pokemon” is
less the 's,' I would argue that the monster is still there, subtly
woven sexual innuendo within the show's infrastructure. Is this
