(i found that 'p is for... pie' picture in my 'my pictures' folder and i couldn't resist using it!)
remember when you're like 6 or 7, and you're whole childhood is centered around something? like sports, or reading, or climbing trees? i was a video game girl, pokemon in particular. i know what you'll be thinking "ANOTHER teenage girl proclaiming her "undying love" for a child oriented game? boring." it isn't like that. i first really got "into" pokemon when i was 4 or 5 maybe, and my dad bought me a pink gameboy color and pokemon yellow from walmart. and even though he had to more or less play the entire game for me because i was rubbish at it, i still felt an affinty, if you will, with all those little pixels
i became more independant with pokemon silver/gold/crystal, (yes, i had all 3) completing silver & gold in an average of say... 6 months? but when nintendo remade s/g and crystal was formed, i was aaaaaall over it, finishing the entire game in probably a maximum of 6 days
RUBY & SAPPHIRE<3
oh sapphire, i love you so much. i can still remember going to gamestop at 9 am to pick up my pro ordered copy before everyone else to make sure i got a kyogre coin, then staying overnight at my friend natalee's house, playing ruby and sapphire literally all night. and suffering the concequences by falling asleep in the cheesecake factory
when diamond/pearl came out i was probably about 13, so i tried to act like i wasn't bothered about it's realse, but secrectly, it was killing me that i wouldn't get a limited edition dialga/palkia stylus. but my dad, once again, preordered diamond for me, i actually felt like i was going to cry with happiness. i didn't even need a week to finish, i finished half the game the first day i had it, and finished it a couple hours later
i absolutely adore pokemon, and you have no idea how pissed off i get when i hear people talking about loving it, despite only being able to name one pokemon, mainly pikachu. or talking about how they bought a packet of pokemon cards and there was a pikachu card there and "zOMG! pikachu is just soooo cute zOMG!" it's just awful haha. whenever someone starts a conversation like that, not even to my face, i get overwhelmed and have to yell randomly "YEAH WELL I HAVE 1000+ POKEMON CARDS AND 100+ FIGURES AND EVERY SINGLE GAME/(on all platforms apart from wii, cause i sold mine...) FILM/BOOK/EPISODE etc!!!"
the sad thing is that's actually the truth...
actually, all of the eeveelutions are adorable. except for lefeon, he freaks me out
