+ - Kids Still Playing Pokemon Like It's 1999

Submitted by theodp
theodp (442580) writes "In 1999, TIME's cover warned readers to Beware of Pokemon ("For many kids it's now an addiction: cards, video games, toys, a new movie. Is it bad for them?"). But Pokemon wasn't as easily felled as Lehman or Bear Stearns. Thirteen years later, 16-year-old Manoj Sunny has his eye on a Pokemon world title, having earned the chance to travel to The Big Island with 35 fellow Americans for the 2012 Pokemon Video Game World Championships, which will be held Aug. 10-12. Sunny, who also captains his school's chess team, credits his success to a good memory, intuition, daily practice, the use of an online simulator, and a competitive attitude ("I hate losing. Once I lost, I needed to get better.”)"
