Would you think that horror movies in the Pokemon world would be incredibly lame?
I’m not really into horror so I don’t think I’m the best person to comment on what makes a horror movie lame, but… no? I don’t think so, anyway? Horror is fundamentally about the unknown, I think, and there’s a lot of potentially dangerous mystery in the Pokémon world. The reality often turns out to be perfectly benign on close inspection – just like in the real world – but I don’t see any reason they couldn’t manipulate fear of the unknown in exactly the same way as we do.
