Storyline

All the kids (except for Kyle, who ends up always one step behind in keeping up with the fads) are going crazy over Chinpokomon, a new toy, game, and TV show set that's just arrived from Japan. Something doesn't quite seem right, however, when the toys start telling kids to attack Pearl Harbor, but the toy's makers have an explanation ready that satisfies everyone who comes to investigate the matter. Will the kids be stopped before it's too late? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Gerald Brofloski: You see son, fads come and go. And this "Chinpokomon" is nothing more than a fad. You don't have to be a part of it. In fact, you can make an even stronger statement by saying to your peers, "I'm not going to be a part of this fad because I'm an individual." Do you understand?
Kyle: Yes, yes I do, Dad. Now let me tell you how it works in the real world. In the real world, I can either get a Chinpokomon, or be the only kid without one, which singles me out, and causes the other kids to make fun of me ...

Spoofing the Pokémon craze!
31 October 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Back in 1999 when this episode came out, Pokemon was a very big fad.I was in second grade when Pokemon became popular and I was hopping on the bandwagon, watching the show and buying the trading cards etc.Looking back now, the show sucked! But I really enjoyed it as a kid.I find that this episode captures the craze very well.The South Park boys are at a young age and are captivated by a new toy from Japan called "Chinpokomon".The kids go crazy for it and buy every new thing related to it that comes out.Then there is Kyle who keeps buying the new thing, only to find that another thing has become more popular in one week(true to life or what).A store owner finds out that the Chinpokomon has hidden messages and is trying to lead American kids to destroy America! Chinpokomon is a wild, realistic and good episode!
