Hi guys!! It has been forever since I’ve written, so please go easy on me! I really hope you enjoy this though :D I got the prompt idea from this list

Dried tears on her cheeks, tissues scattered across the floor, and puffy red eyes.

Rose Tyler was in absolutely no state to answer the knocking at her door.

Whoever they were, they’d knocked once, twice, three times now. She finally picked herself up off the couch and dragged herself to the door, brushing her hand through her hair to make herself look somewhat more presentable.

She thought it could be a neighbor complaining about the noise (she’d been sobbing for hours, but she’d kept it pretty quiet, at least) or maybe Mickey or her mum checking on her (she honestly would prefer the first over the latter).

But when she finally looked through the peephole, it was not at all what she’d expected.

“Alright,” Pietro said as he wrote something down on a piece of paper. “Now read this sentence aloud.” he said before sliding the paper across the table to Y/N. She took it and turned it around.

“Okay.” She looked at it for a moment before slowly reading it aloud. “Ste zelo lep in da te ljubim.” She said before looking up to see Pietro grinning smugly. “What did I just say?” she asked with a semi-nervous smile.

“Vi ste zelo lepa in da te ljubim.” He said.

“What?” Y/N asked before grabbing her phone to enter the words into Google Translate. Her face flushed and she looked at Pietro in time to see him wink at her.

Translations:

Ste zelo lep in da te ljubim. – You are very handsome and I love you.

Vi ste zelo lepa in da te ljubim. – You are very beautiful and I love you.

I’ve honestly been thinking on this often the reception of Yo-kai watch specifically in the west has been cringe worthy at best. The amount of fanboyism and pacifism between those who aren’t invested in either series towards fans who are rightfully upset has been outrageous to say the least. I’m not pointing fingers at anyone just expressing what I’ve witnessed over time, months even. I’ve stayed quiet for far too long.

Yes I love Yokai watch and Pokemon equally they both bring me joy in different ways just as other rpgs and monster catching games have over the years. Its ridiculous seeing the multitude of pettiness people have towards this “kids game”. These same people most likely play multiple games of the same genre because they ENJOY it yet you don’t see others antagonizing others over it.

Lets list some rpgs on Nintendo handhelds then since that’s what Yokai watch and Pokemon are. Fire emblem, monster hunter, Zelda, Ace attorney, Mario games, Shin megami tensei, Rune factory, Etrian Odyssey, Harvest Moon, Final fantasy, Kingdom hearts, Tales of the abyss and the list goes on!

You see all those games? They share a genre. You’ve probably played a few of them. They most likely share alot in common in gameplay too, some of these series are more popular then the others but people still enjoy these games nonetheless. No ones calling the recent games killer or replacement of that series before it. All these series coexist with each other because they are all unique and special to someone in some way.

So why is YW left out in this circle of harmony? As much as I hate to admit, I was apprehensive of the series while it was in japan aswell. It hit too close to home of the reasons why I loved Pokemon. The gameplay itself was so different especially watching in a language I’m still learning. But after awhile watching the anime and gameplay it grew on me, it was obviously different and the anime’s concept in general were appealing and funny. It was relatable even to a 20 year old like myself. Even the game had content that was relatable to parts of my life in general imagine a child seeing this and knowing that they aren’t the only ones feeling this way. Yeah saying its a Yokai’s fault in real life is silly but so is hoping for real life Pokemon. (best we’ll get is animatronics at best) but I feel thats where its popularity stems, any Yokai’s ability of possession is and can be relatable to anyone no matter how silly.

Pokemon is its own separate world to ours, magical and peaceful with mystical lore to look way too into! Its emphasis on nature and loving care of the beings around you. Not to mention alot of loveable characters anime and in game! The series is 20 years strong as of this year. Business and fan loving wise. Its not going anywhere anytime soon.

So you see those differences I listed for these games and anime right? See how different they are despite that ONE similarity. How many rpgs have you played that you love that have one similarity in gameplay? I bet you can name quite a few.

Now I know what your thinking “how many times will you repeat these are rpgs and have differences? What about the actual gameplay?”

This will be surprisingly short. Both games have “turns” just like any rpg but the yokai can attack on there own, you can even pin which Yokai to focus on not to mention soultimate aka special moves that you play mini games on the bottom screen to activate plus you can switch all 6 around. Not to mention abilities. There’s probably more I’m forgetting to list. Pokemon, tap attack, think about which attack does more damage or benefits you, watch animation. Rinse and repeat. Not to mention catching or befriending Yokai. Which yes can be annoying but so is catching legendary Pokemon or that one regular pokemon in red hp that has a status condition that just won’t stay in the pokeball….

See that? You probably think I’m bias don’t you? No your talking to the person who has over 200 hours on Soulsilver probably more on X because of breeding. (love me some wtw) but see how Yokai watch has its own spin on the so called “Pokemon formula” so you can’t say its a rip off now. You know why? Because all rpgs stem from that same formula so if you say one is a ripoff your saying every other rpg including your favorites are ripoffs too.

Everyone’s a hypocrite even me, moreso me in other instances but it can’t be helped sometimes. Its apart of our nature. There’s nothing wrong with being well wrong about something at first. I was wrong at first and now I enjoy it. Not saying you SHOULD enjoy it you have every right not too. But don’t go around spreading misinformation of said product to others. Your only making yourself look childish and it gets on people’s nerves which leads to post like this or worse. People get frustrated over time I’m sure you have over something you’ve ignored thats pestered you repeatedly so why do it to someone else am I right?

To end this absurdly long post I’ll leave it at this. Why go out of your way to make a genre stale because of nostalgia and fear of change. Change is good. Change is what made Pokemon prosper over the years and has brought in new fans. Another series that is similar will not kill it. Its simply another option for people who can’t get enough of catching monsters to play. Its something that is making someone happy. Helping someone become friends with other people who have similar interests just as pokemon has done for many aswell.
