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.

Recent Pokemon Go stuff

Yesterday was Porygon Community Day and it was a success for me:

“Pick me! Pick me!”

What else have I caught recently? Well there was this unexpected shiny Raichu which was nice.

I got a ton of shiny Magicarps when their day came around, thus somewhat lessening the specialness of my original one, boo.

The pandemic has kinda dulled my Pokemon playing for obvious reasons. I still sometimes get some good ones in the house though.

Pokemon stuff

Today is the anniversary of Pokemon: The First Movie!

So I thought I’d share some of the Pokemon I’ve been catching over the past few months. (Mostly in the house and garden for obvious reasons.)

Man even the Pokemon are social distancing.

Awww, so many balloons and hats!

I’ve been catching Team Rocket’s Pokemon but I dunno how to do the new quest.

I unlocked this map but I don’t know how to use it? Ah well.

Here’s a duck.
