Games and games

At the Olympic Games and other sports events, an athlete taking “medicines” to enhance performance is a scandal.

In Pokémon (third generation) it’s normal and expected that before a contest you dope the contestants with pokéblocks, and you have “medicines” that will temporarily raise performance during a fight, or even permanently.

I wonder if stuff like that confuses children when it comes to doping. XD
