No sociopaths in this house!

My husband walked upstairs to find my son crying on the couch. He was watching "The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon" movie on DVD with his sister and he was upset because Mew dies at the end of the film.

"Well, he doesn't exactly die. He kinda goes up and turns into mist, but it's like he died" explained my daughter.

We comforted him as best we could. It's not like this is the first time he's watched this movie ("but he forgot that Mew dies at the end" elaborated our girl). So, if anyone is concerned about video games desensitizing their children to violence, take solace in the fact that my son wept for the passing of a fictional video game character in a movie he's seen before. Poor little guy!
