There's so much I wanna say about Pokemon that probably wouldn't fit into this post without making it super long O:
I'll start with the fact that Pokemon is like my number one go-to for lessening my panic attacks. It helps me focus and keep calm when I'm all over the place, and I'm really happy about that.
I'm doing a Youngster Joey challenge on my Firered with a shiny Rattata (who I named Midas) that came to me really early on in the game at like 11pm (?? i still have no idea how it happened) – we're currently heading to Celadon City.
I play a lot of the games, my highest hour count was 427 in an old Platinum file (I was waiting for HG to come out), my favorite game add-on was the Pokewalker, and I am superhype for PSMD.
My favorite Pokemon are Azumarill, Umbreon, Latias, and… uh… well, the top faves. I don't hate any Pokemon except maybe Cryogonal.
