So okay, every time we play a Pokemon game, we take its world at face value. There are preteens who capture magical monsters and battle them with each other and there are no ethical or societal concerns about that. We accept that because it's fun. But you know what doesn't make any damn sense at all, even in a world with flying fire dragons? The way catching Pokemon works. Yeah, you have to weaken them to capture them, that checks out, but what about when Pokemon are at their weakest?
