Happy 5th birthday, Pokemon Go

The game itself tells me the anniversary was yesterday, but I don’t remember Britain getting the game until pretty late on and I have no idea of the actual day. I guess that means I can celebrate the birthday whenever! Here’s some of my favourite snaps I’ve taken over the past five years.

In a way these silly Pokemon photos double as a little photo album of places I’ve been over the past few years. Every picture has a memory attached, however faint, which I’m very grateful for. Happy birthday POGO!

New Pokemon Snap

After a lot of running around from sold-out store to sold-out store today I was able to net myself a copy of the new Pokemon Snap! Strange to think the last one came out more than 20 years ago (and I didn’t even get to play it the year of release because I was a child with no Nintendo.)

LOTS of fun. Still trying to work out how to do the “friends” thing. But here’s some of my fave Snaps I’ve taken so far:

Happy 25th birthday, Pokemon

It’s so strange to think Pokemon is younger than me. But I remain eternally grateful it exists.

New Year via games

Obviously there was nowhere to go on New Year’s Eve so I basically spent it on Animal Crossing. Awww, the little villagers threw a party.

Animal Crossing meant a lot to us this year, so I wanted to get a nice photo of me and my husband in the game as the countdown finished and the fireworks went off. So I got us in cute poses and hit the button at JUST the right moment… and the screenshot gallery was full. No photo for you. I cracked the hell up because WHAT BETTER WAY to sum up 2020 than that. Oh well, I took a photo on my phone instead, which has more sentiment in many ways I suppose.

Also Deli wasn’t there and he’s my favourite. :(

I had a quick whirl on Pokemon to get the New Year ones as well. That was more successful, in that I was able to get 2020 Slowpoke (aww) and evolve him within a couple of hours.

And a Pikachu with yet another hat!

Anyway, those were a fun distraction. Now back to the crushing terror of living in the UK under a corrupt government in the middle of a pandemic.
