Things I didn’t notice about Pokemon
Nintendo’s 2011 Pokemon World Championship Tournament
I was over at ToonBarn reading up on the Pokemon World Champs and was overwhelmed at the sheer amount of serious players going for the actual title that Ash Ketchum has yet to accomplish of being a Pokemon Master and was taken back to the past.
Players come together and pit themselves against one another with their Pokemon in an all out tournament. It was something I dreamed about when I played on the Gameboy Pocket but never had the chance to do. I felt even some what betrayed at the new Pokemon that exist today. Again I was taken back.
Back to the days where I played the first Gen of Pokemon. Blue and Red not Fire Red, just Red and I’m actually astonished at the combinations of Pokemon you can get now. It was once a water type, grass type and the occasional combinations but nothing of the sort today in Pokemon Black and White. I’m sure there were lethal mixes such as water and fire type- okay that’s deeply exaggerated but it goes to show what kind of battle they can have.
Now on the newest generation which introduces the Pokemon Dream World, which allows players to send a Pokémon to the internet to obtain items and meet other Pokémon. This was what I dreamed off. Digimon had the idea when they were sent into the digital world and I’d always hoped Pokemon would have that capability.
Personally I wouldn’t dare enter the championship or yet the dream world and pit my skills to the test, between you and me I was what you would call a druggie- No I didn’t do drugs but my Pokemon were so pumped up with rare candy that their sugar levels would make even Mr. Wonker himself gasp.
Come to think about it my biggest battles now are Facebook while trying to write a blog post and even the sneaky tweet here and there. This video shows my day to day Pokemon Style Battle troubles let alone having my Pokemon in the red with 12 HP left and no Super Potions to boast.
Things I didn’t notice.
Take a deep breath, it’s just a game. Who am I kidding it’s a childhood, Pokemon served me well but there are something I just didn’t notice like-
How did they fit in the balls?
Sure if it was an Electrode , even a Graveller it would be fine but squeezing a Rhyhorn in there, no way.
Scyther , I’m sure those things are classified as wings, yet it wasn’t possible. If you wanted to get technical about it then how in the world is a Pidgey supporting all that weight.
Okay they should make a rule of water Pokemon only or at least Pokemon who know how to use surf. The Comic explains why.
Pokemon was surely a game that I cannot forget and a series that will not be lost in memory but my time with it was long dusted away after Gold and Silver. With all the new features coming out , someone out there right now is probably dreaming of things Pokemon Black and White could do but can’t and they soon will be writing a post on how much it’s moved on. Let’s be honest the Pokemon empire is not going to fall short any time soon so any Pokemon Dream can be made a Reality.
