The birds, the bees and the imaginary video game creatures

Guess what I learned today?

Pokemon characters breed. Just what we needed in our house - Pokemon sex.

My husband assures me it's done in a PG-rated way. According to E, you put the boy Pokemon and the girl Pokemon you want to procreate in the day care center, and they grow levels (whatever that means - I think it has to do with power). Finally, you get an egg, even if the two mating Pokemon are of different species. Then you run a certain number of steps and the egg hatches into a level 1 Pokemon.

Pass out the cigars, folks.

Does this make it an educational game? Which would, of course, assuage my guilt for allowing my children to spend so much time playing it....
