Here is a really short clip from one of the “shorts” that was made along with the Pokemon movie.
The message is not exactly subliminal in the true sense of the word in that you can hear it as part of the regular playing of the movie, but it is quite clear:
“Smeargle” rushes past a few other pokemon and just then the words “shut the f*** up” are clearly understandable. The video creator even suggests that Pokemon is certainly not suitable nor safe for our kids to watch.
What do you think? Do you let your children watch cartoons when you find hidden messages like these, or not? Especially since there are other Pokemon videos with hidden subliminal messages out there.
