Welcome to me web log. I am a 22 year old male who believes strongly in equal rights and the heart of the cards. I blog about what ever tickles my fancy, be it cute animals, beer, nerdfighteria, gundam, and sundry other topics.
When you judge pokemon from their origins rather than they joy they bring you, I feel bad for you.
This is the dumbest shit ever.
The animal theme is just what started pokemon. Why should it matter if pokemon are based off of animals or inanimate everyday objects? That’s not what Pokemon is about. It’s about your journey to become the Pokemon Champion, the bonds you make with you pokemon, and the friends you make along the way.
Pokemon isn’t less fun for me now since I got my first copy of Pokemon Red all those years ago. The gaming and story of pokemon has only gotten better and more complex since the game first came out. It’s constantly being improved, and honestly, they were gonna run out of animals eventually for them to use, there are only so many animals in the world, and had to move onto some sort of other motifs at some point.
And it’s not like there is no pokemon based off of animals anymore. They still have plenty of those in Black and White as well.
This is nothing but “original” pokemon fan elitism. :/
not to mention the brilliant creativity of Voltorb. Its a pokeball, an inanimate object just like the OP complains about in new generations
So you want to be a Pokemon Master? Redditor Menace64 created a drinking board game based on the first generation of Pokemon Games. The game is simple and easy to follow (a big plus for drinking games), requiring players to partake in actions directed by the squares they land on. Just like the video games, each player starts off by picking a starter Pokemon and ends with battling the Elite Four, Gary, and Mewtwo. Special dungeon areas are also included where the stakes are higher. The most recent version of the game is v1.3, with possible updates in the future. Menace64 has stated that he also plans to create a Johto version.
This game requires a lot of drinking. Always be safe when consuming alcohol and having fun!
