WI: No Pokemon

Let's say that ITTL, Satoshi Tajiri's parents manage to solve his "delinquent habits" of skiving off school to play arcade games, with Tajira instead managing to get good grades, progress to university and succeed in his childhood ambition to become a professional entomologist. As such, Game Freak is never created, and neither is the Pokemon franchise. How much of an impact do you imagine that this might have had?

MASSIVE impact on:

- Nintendo's profits, and probably the life of Game Boy and Game Boy Colour

- The proliferation of anime in the West, as while that will happen anyway it probably doesn't happen in the same way, at the same time, with a massive kidvid phenomenon

- SMTV Live doesn't get a ratings boost from Pokemon, and Bryan from Westlife doesn't have people of a certain age go "BRYAN!!" at him
