    Default Will they ever make a Pokemon series for teens/adults?

    Sounds kinda wrong, Pokemon being targeted towards kids, but an important thing to remember is most original Pokemon fans are now teenagers and adults. Do you think a Pokemon series with great animated battles, less bullshit could ever happen?

    The X/Y Mega Evolution Specials are a great example of what I mean. I'd recommend them to anyone that liked/likes Pokemon.

    I wish, but I doubt it so long as kids remain the most dominant and profitable demographic of the Pokemon franchise. If the demographic significantly shifts towards teens and adults, then perhaps, but not until the main series has been phased out or at least, lowered its profile considerably. To put it bluntly, it'd have to do an MLP: die down to near obscurity then reboot itself.

    Next to the Mario franchise, Pokemon is Nintendo's bread and butter. It has, and always will be designed to make easy money off ignorant kids as opposed to informed adults.

    I love Nintendo, but I'm under no illusion that they're a business first and will provide a service only if there's profit in it for them. As such, I don't see Nintendo re-adapting the Pokemon series until it has squeezed every last drop of milk from its main cash cow and long after it has stagnated. Only then do I think they might consider a new Pokemon series for teens/adults (depending on current trends), and then, only after losing a ton of profits from its sibling franchises.

    Nintendo is losing money however, and that is good news (Yeah I know that sounds strange, but I'll get to that). In fact, according to a source it's no longer listed in the top 100 most-heard-of corporations--in short it's heading towards obscurity. Only its thick wallet and nostalgic demographic is keeping it from becoming irrelevant. But it's actually a good thing that Nintendo is losing money because that's usually what forces them to get their head out of the clouds, stop being complacent and refresh themselves.

    To change the series to be geared toward a older crowd would probably take away from the series as a whole and hurt it. You would have to bring in more action and I doubt anyone wants to see pikachu bleeding out on screen. You would need character conflict and joking kicked up quite a bit... brocks jokes would never land. After your done it would be way too "adult" a show to be featuring little furry monsters and so fourth.

    Most of the Pokemon manga series are geared towards adults. Especially the "Electric Tale of Pikachu" if I remember correctly. (Ash, you perv!) Though, I would love to see an adaption of Pokemon Adventures. Adventures is a huge series in and of itself, since it covers all of the regions and games' characters. That, and it definitely has a lot more mature themes throughout the story. Political corruption, death, mutilations, and such. Everyone familiar with Adventures knows the infamous sliced-in-half-Arbok scene.

    An extended version of The Origin anime would be pretty cool too.

    That would be good. But would Ash be a teenager or as old as Professor Oak?

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I don't think they ever will. Making another series just for teens/adults would cost more money and they target mainly kids for their show. Teens and adults who still like Pokemon are given the video game, which is doing extremely well. So currently, the company won't have any incentives to make another series. They'd probably end up losing money too, if they made another series.

    Like previously stated, Pokčmon was originally targeted for kids, and probably always will be even though a lot of adults play the games and watch the shows.

    IMO Pokemon Origin focuses more on the plot, so I guess that could be said for older demographics?

    As stated before, Origins is a good example of Pokémon anime aimed at an older audience. The same applies to the recent Twilight Wings (Hakumei no Tsubasa) show. When Pokémon anime aims at games content, it looks for this. But the original series are trying to sell products to kids, mostly. So it will keep being quite a childish show. Interesting discussion, I had not seen it!

    Actually they did. They just edited it before it came to America.
