  • ♪ (theme music) ♪

  • - ♪ ...no one ever was ♪ - Oh my gosh.

  • My whole grade is obsessed with Pokémon.

  • They bring their cards to class. It's so annoying.

  • - ♪ To train them is my call

  • - I don't get why there's a move called "lick".

  • What is the point of that?

  • - (singing along) ♪ Searching far and wide

  • Dun-doo-doo-doo

  • - ♪ Each Pokémon to understand

  • The power that's inside ♪ - It's a pretty good song.

  • - ♪ Pokémon, gotta catch 'em all

  • It's you and me

  • Gotta catch 'em all ♪ - Oh my gosh! I love Pokémon.

  • - (children) Pokémon!

  • - (Finebros) Who would you say is your favorite character

  • in Pokémon and why? - I don't have a favorite

  • because I love a lot of them.

  • - I like most of the characters.

  • - I like one from every series.

  • - I like Pikachu a lot.

  • - Pikachu and Oshawott. Those are the cutest ones.

  • - (Finebros) Have you ever watched the TV show?

  • - A little bit.

  • - I watched that one, the new one, Black and White,

  • and then I watched all the movies.

  • - I loved the first characters!

  • Like, I loved Brock. He was so funny.

  • In every single Pokémon series,

  • at least one gym leader leaves the gym to go with Ash.

  • - (Finebros) And what about the video games? Are you into them?

  • - Pokémon video games? I do play on my Wii.

  • - No, because usually a lot of them are old

  • or they cost money on Steam or something.

  • - I never had a DS or anything or a Nintendo.

  • I don't think that my parents loved me enough.

  • I'm just joking! (laughs)

  • That's kind of an inside joke.

  • I tell them that they don't love me a lot,

  • but they really do love me.

  • - (Finebros) And what about Pokémon cards? Do you collect them?

  • - Uh, I used to.

  • - I was never into them.

  • - It's just not my thing. I don't really like card games.

  • I don't really like anime.

  • - I lost one-- my Jigglypuff one.

  • - I went over to my friend's house

  • and he had a deck of cards to use, and I had some too.

  • I didn't know what I was doing, but I kept beating him the whole time.

  • - (Finebros) So do you know when Pokémon first came onto television?

  • - 1990?

  • - 1991.

  • - 2000 and... I'm gonna say three?

  • - 2002!

  • Was it in the 2000s?

  • - (Finebros) Before. - Like 1950?

  • - (Finebros) You went way too far back now. (laughs)

  • - 1979. - (Finebros) Keep going forward.

  • - 1981, 1982, 1983.

  • Oh my god. I'm not gonna do this.

  • - 2000... no, no, no. 1998.

  • - (Finebros) So close. So close.

  • 1997. - Oh, dang it!

  • - (Finebros) So Pokémon has been this big thing for a very long time.

  • Is it still something that kids are into today?

  • - At my school, yeah, it's very popular.

  • - Yeah, they have Pokémon cards and then they battle at school.

  • - Definitely. A lot of kids at my school still play with the Pokémon stuff.

  • - To my friends, not really, but to some other people

  • it's kind of a big deal.

  • - Everybody at my school was really into it,

  • and so I'd just sit around after school

  • seeing people go, "Pokémon!"

  • - (Finebros) What is something that all kids are into these days?

  • - All I know is Super Smash 'cause it has Pikachu and Charizard in it.

  • - Steven Universe for sure.

  • A lot of people-- I mean, some people just absolutely hate it.

  • Some people absolutely love it. I'm one of those people that love it.

  • - Magic and then there's Bakugan.

  • Card games are definitely still a thing

  • and they will always still be a thing.

  • Like, I like Poker. I like Black Jack.

  • I can still crush a 30 year old at Black Jack.

  • - (Finebros) So many adults will make a stereotype

  • and say that kids these days are only on their phones

  • playing apps and games, but is that not really the full story?

  • - (scoffs) You always see kids outside playing basketball.

  • You always see them doing other stuff.

  • You always see them doing their homework.

  • It's not just apps and games and everything.

  • A lot of adults are always on their phones and everything,

  • including my mom.

  • - (Finebros) Do you hope that when you're older

  • and have kids of your own that Pokémon will still be around

  • and that your kids will like it? - Hopefully.

  • That'll be a dream.

  • Because we can have something to relate to.

  • Like, "Did you catch all 151 yet?"

  • It's like, "No, not yet, daddy!

  • Not yet. I'm working on it!"
