Just doing some personal scribbles of me being emotional because Pokemon. Along side Sailor Moon and Kingdom Hearts, what I love most about Pokemon is the friendship aspect. Even in Red/Blue before there was a gameplay mechanic for friendship or affinity…they were all my friends and they were all important to me. I loved the Pokemon themselves and I loved what Pokemon as an idea meant to me. It brought me and my brother closer. It helped me make friends and even now as an adult, I’ve gotten so much closer with everyone because we all have this common entity bringing us together.
Every Pokemon game I get so sad to reach that point where you stop playing because I know I won’t go back because a new game will come back and my Pokemon will just sit and be lonely until I can transfer them. Even then, every time I transfer I find myself going ‘I’ll be a stranger to them now. They won’t be my friends anymore ;A;’ but I get the same fear outside of game. Like, I’m talking to so many people every day at work because of Pokemon and if Pokemon goes away, will they still want to talk to me u.u
Maybe I was just being over emotional one day about it but the idea that the professors of the old game are keeping your Pokemon safe and happy makes me feel better. And that even without Pokemon, my friends will always be there for me to talk to and we’ll always have new things to talk about it!
That being said, I’m not putting Pokemon down anytime soon.
And Pokemon Bank needs to hurry up because I seriously need my fucking Mew right god damn now. I’ve had a Mew in every game I’ve played! We ain’t gunna stop now! <3
