Pokemon is a Japanese anime series that has been running since 1997 and popular game franchise. It follows the adventures of a young boy named Ash Ketchum, who is training to become a Pokemon Trainer. 

Pokemon has taught us life lessons that can be applied to everyday life. The show also taught us major life lessons about empathy, how we treat others, self-belief, and friendship.

Empathy: This may be the biggest lesson of all. In the first episode we see that the only way to befriend a Pikachu is to be kind and caring towards it. You have to treat it as a person rather than just a pet or toy. You have to be willing to put yourself in its shoes if you want to learn what it’s thinking.

Self-Belief: The show also teaches us that you need to believe in yourself even when other people don’t believe in you too. You also need to believe in your own abilities if you want to do something great.

Friendship: The show teaches us that friendship is very important in life, especially when you’re young like Ash Ketchum from Pokemon is (or were). If you can get along with your friends then nothing can stop you from succeeding at anything!
