...Damn, I hate it when I come up with a headline so awesome and descriptive that I barely even need to type up the actual article!

But there you have it: ICv2 reports that Toys'r'Us is expanding Pokemon's presence in its stores. There are new display areas (particularly in the video game departments), and the Toys'r'Us in Times Square will have a dedicated Pokemon Boutique.

Somehow, that name seems completely not right. Shouldn't it be a Poketique? Or better yet, a Pokezaar? Well, anyway, I TOLD YOU IT WASN'T OVER.

o_o So does that means most Toys R Us stores are gonna have Pokecenters (or whatever they wanna name it)? Daaaang. I cannot believe the series is still living after soooo long. I only know a couple kids who watch it.

*coughs I'd totally go to my local one if I can buy a bunch of first season Pokemon plushies coughs*

Psh! My starter Pokemon was always Charmander despite the first few gym leaders not being weak against fire. I'll always <3 Charmander (and fire types).

How this new generation of kids keeps up with the new Pokemons is beyond me.

and in this vein, can we refer to Gia as our Pokorréspondent?

No, no, no. We'll let you choose your own color pokeball.

If Charmander rules the world, Why can it "die" if the fire on its tail runs out!!!!


Also, the new generation keeps up with Pokemon beacuse older gerneration people turn on to Cartoon Network, or leave shiny cards lying around, which automatically gets kids excited.
Since the cards are not scary looking( Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic), have steroided people (sports), or are extremely confusing to play with (Digimon or everything else), they like the cards.  Also, the games are still extremely interactive and fun.
