Finding Christian Symbology in Pokemon[edit]

Heh heh, yes, more Pokemon. Ever have an english teacher/professor inform you that the book has loads of symbology that you never noticed? More than once I've wondered if they were making it up. And, conviently, Pokemon has a lot of surface level stuff. If this article never gets nominated, and there's nothing I can do, I will just have to keep writing Pokemon articles until one does get a few votes. (Also don't give it a -10 on everything because it has the p-word.) Fresh Stain Serq Fet of Pokemon (At your service) 23:19, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Final Score: 41.5 A pretty good article, very creative concept and has a good way of making it humorous.

Potential Hazard[edit]

The YouTube video is not on YouTube anymore. Just so's ya know.

Oh damn, I didn't see it. Thanks, lol. I'm going to find a part of a pokemon episode anyways, and make a quiz for the symbology in it, or something. Seriously, thanks for pointing that out! Fresh Stain Serq Fet of Pokemon (At your service) 04:42, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

3rd Review[edit]

Finding Christian Symbology in Pokemon[edit]

I really need a decent review. This is my third request, and the last one was a "Hey! I'm going to whore out 5 reviews without reading the articles!" I think that it is ready for VFH, and if not, please tell if there is anything I can do! Fresh Stain Serq Fet of Pokemon (At your service) 04:27, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Endnotes: Check the prose carefully. Whinning is not a word in English. "...claims the best spots of campsites" is not good grammar. Misty might claim "the pick of the campsites" or "the best campsites" or the "best spots to camp". I think that in most cases a writer needs to produce sentences that can be understood right away by someone who has drunk 6 beers. Every sentence needs to be so clear, so straight, that it's meaning cannot be mistaken.

"Pikachu is chosen by God in the first episode, being struck by a lightning bolt that makes it nearly invincible. It is compared to David. Stupid!!!! Really, Pikachu is Moses. People misunderstand him, God chose him, Ash didn't even want to touch Pikachu without gloves for a while..."

Look carefully at the sense of this paragraph. Being "chosen by God" is not logically related to being struck by a lightning bolt -- lightning is often a sign of God's wrath, not of His favor. Was the biblical King David struck by lightning? Pikachu is referred to as "it" in the first part of the paragraph, and "him" in the latter half. Why? Did people misunderstand Moses, as implied by the parallel with Pikachu?

I would rewrite, and rewrite again, until all ambiguity and possibility for confusion is eliminated.

You are looking for something as clear and powerful as tequila.

Now, I am a very big fan of articles that tell you right away what they are going to be discussing. The opening paragraph of this article does not do that. Personally, I would be right upfront with readers. "There are hundreds of parallels between the Bible and the Pokemon testaments." Advice on giving public presentations is often phrased like this:

1. Tell the audience what you are going to tell them (overview). 2. Tell them. 3. Tell the audience what you just told them (summary).

This presentation style aids comprehension. For our purposes, an article that begins with a clear statement of subject sets the readers' minds on the correct track, and prepares them mentally for what is to follow. If you choose to come into a concept by a different route, then you should have a very good reason. Conversely, if you have no very compelling reason to avoid a straightforward opening statement of subject then it is best to use one.

Good luck with this. ----OEJ 17:32, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Final Score: Expression error: Unexpected < operator. Any article, short of being deleted, has the potential to be VFH'ed. This particular article, though it may have to have more work done on it than most,is no exception. Should the Christian critique become too troublesome, may one suggest tackling (<---hahahaha! Tackle attack!) Pokemon through Marxist, Feminist, or Bat **** Insane lens?

How this should be read[edit]

I think one of the problems that people have when they read this is that they read it wrong. This isn't some inane and random nonsense I'm spewing, this is structured and referenced. Information is cited sometimes, and specific events mentioned are given the correct episode date, if you ever care to look it up. In the list of events, every one of the 'character symbols' are true, with the correct episode, although the Subliminal section is largely made up.

People also have largley missed the point. I'm also satirizing english teachers. So many of mine have declared books full of Christian symbology. A guide on literary symbology gave me a very generic list of Christian symbols, and I was inspired by their capacity to be applied to absolutely anything. It had a checklist of 50 traits belonging to Jesus, for example, and many of them are added to this article, especially for Ash and Max.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that this is close to a Wikipedia article in format and function. Read this as if you were researching the topic to write a term paper. It is supposed to be somewhat serious, although it is on a silly subject. Thanks! Fresh Stain Serq Fet of Pokemon (At your service) 00:44, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
