Around 1998 on our school bus there was a girl named Kiki (her name is kind of obvious that her parents did not give her great genes to begin with) and she stated that her church (and she wasn't even in middle school yet) told all the children to stop playing Pokemon because Pokemon were Satan's demons. Since more kids on the bus were Poketrainers than super-religious she was basically booed in a sense to sit down and be quiet. I thought it was something silly she made up but the Christian-right has had a bit of hatred towards Pokemon. Later in life I've heard some weird pastor guy called them "oriental demons" and another case just like it with some church leader saying pretty much the same thing with the super-popularity of Pokemon Go. What did Pokemon ever do to them?
