Will Pokemon Be Real??

Could they be real as early as 2050?
With the rise of genetic engineering I think they could be

Well genetic engineering will soon become common, so much that it may happen to our pets for the same reason anyone would want it for their offspring.
- healthly
- good looking
- .....

Cats and dogs are boring. Having a pet rhinos thats as small as a cat/dog or anything you want, would seem more awesome compared to a cat/dog.

But to have animals that have superpowers (pikachu, a rat that controls electricity) would be dangerous and would just be kept at the early stage of exotic house pet.

That is a possibility but I think Pokemon will be out of trend by then.

Anyway genetically speaking it would be really hard to realize a Pokemon in lab and We are talking about advanced genetic engeniering. So it is not a priority for researchers right now. When we will be able to re-create animals that are about to get exthinguish and they are important for the enviroment, or bring back to life some pre-historic animals, or animals that can grow human organs or also animals that produce food with essential calories and nutrient for the bodiesof pepole of 3rd world then we may start to talk about " Fashion" genetic engeniering.
For me it will become a common trend around 2080.
However this trend is already started in a way look at the cat mixed with a tiger's genes . It is very expensive to get it and it took years of work.

you forgot about the pokeballs, which tames them... maybe in the wild they are dangerous but not if we have caught them all and train them as pokemon masters, then yeah. not to mention they can do all of our fighting and battles, and maybe use them in wars. We may have league of tournaments for it too and then it will also become a sport.

I think it is perfectly moral and justified, despite having to derive arguments based on fiction.

Wouldn't we just give ourselves superpowers. Although pokeballs do not work on humans...

We would but then it all comes down to a matter of choice of whether you wanna be a Z-fighter or a Pokemon trainer/master.


Heck I think I might even wanna create a poll about it, brb...

I don't think scientists would put in years of concentration and effort to realize fantasy creatures that are disregarded by fourth grade.
