    The 4 PokeTruths

    Pokemon life is full of pain and suffering.​

    Pain and suffering are caused by trainers' desire to strangthen their Pokemon, win battles, and draw cards.​

    Pain and suffering will end when trainers overcome their greed.​

    Trainers can overcome their greed by following the Eightfold Route.​

    For those who don't know, the 'Poke Buddha' is paraphrasing the Four Noble Truths, which are a key teaching in Buddhism. They are: 1) We all experience suffering; 2) Suffering is caused by the Three Poisons of greed, hatred and delusion; 3) The end of suffering is nirvana; 4) The path to nirvana or enlightenment is the Eightfold Path.

    The Eightfold Path is: 1) Wholesome view, 2) Wholesome thought, 3) Wholesome speech, 4) Wholesome conduct, 5) Wholesome livelihood, 6) Wholesome effort,7) Wholesome mindfulness, 8) Wholesome meditation.
