Did you started plaing/watching/following Pokemon from Gen 1-2, or was it from Gen 3+? I wonder how the Pokemania went for Australia. (For the record, I've started living in Australia from 11 years ago.)
I know in the US everyone went crazy for the games and the anime - and then there were the stupid religious fundementalists that screamed, "OH NO! YOU'RE PLAYING POKEMON, YOU'RE BELING SINFUL, WICKED CHILD!" Ironic, because I know a number of Christian friends that played Pokemon at various times in their lives - one's really conservative, and he enjoyed playing DPPt - and he was quite interested in how the franchise moved on when I should him my copy of Pokémon Y.
