Japan Video Games Blog


Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

Pokemón (subculture) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pokemón (subculture)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Pokemón is the name of an urban tribe among Chile's youth that surfaced in the late 2000s.[1][2] They are readily identifiable by their angular and pressed hairstyles[3], reminiscent of characters from the Japanese media franchise Pokémon.[4][5] It is currently one of the largest and better known urban tribes in the country.[6]

Pokemones dress similarly to other tribes, such as Otaku and Emo, but they are not followers of anime like the former, nor share the musical tastes of the latter.[7] Pokemones are livelier and extroverted. During parties they dance to reggaeton music, while kissing and groping with as many people (male or female) as they can, which they call poncear.[3] They make extensive use of the Internet, trading photos of themselves on image-sharing sites like Fotolog and communicating through MSN Messenger.[7][3]

Pokemones are usually from the Chilean middle and lower class. They are frequently juxtaposed against another group, the so-called peloláis, well-to-do girls with long, straight fairer hair from private, Catholic schools.[8]

In January 2008, Internet messages surfaced urging violence against Pokemones (mainly because of borrowing aspects from other subcultures, such as Emo hair, hip-hop clothes, and for using the c-walk).[citation needed] People belonging to the subculture increasingly began to be attacked outside discos and pubs.[citation needed] In response, a joint anti-violence campaign called "Foundation for a Better Future" has been organized by the Chilean government and Santiago's main student leaders.[6]
