Crossing the X’s and Dotting the Y’s part two
So this Pokemon thing is pretty crazy right? I want to expand on the idea of TOO MANY POKEMON!
I argue that there are not nearly enough Pokemon! The issue is how incredibly difficult it is to get so many of them now. I have never seen such fervor for people to go back and play all the previous games they didn’t originally play.
“Man, this game is good, but I want to go back and play a previous, more cumbersome version of this game just to catch one Pokemon character out of a possible one hundred/two hundred/six hundred possible Pokemon.”
If the goal is to collect them all, that is a noble goal, but even with a network of pokemaniac friends it can still be nearly impossible to catch many of them, or even see all of them.
As someone who has recently “caught them all” (in Pokemon White Version 2 for the Nintendo DS) I can say that finding them all was beyond ridiculous. Even now I don’t still have them caught, because my friends wanted them back. I guess it is more reasonable to say I have “held them all, for a small, non consecutive amount of time.”
Basically, I want to own my own Moltres again! This shouldn’t be such an unfair request. SIGH.
So in conclusion, make as many Pokemon as your GAME FREAK heart desires, just LET ME CATCH AND TRAIN THEM TO FIGHT ALSO!
