Hey everyone! So, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’m going to be blogging about, and I decided that want to talk about all the realizations I have had while being a living breathing Pokemon nerd. And the first realization that I had was that 150 species of Pokemon was enough.
I’m going to be honest with you, I still don’t know what the hell a “Quagsire” is. Or any other Pokemon that came after the first generation for that matter. I remember when I was just starting out on my gameboy journey, the majesty and wonder I felt going off into the world to become a Pokemon Master. When there was 150 species, it made the quest seem more important. Now, there are over 600 species. What? How can anyone be expected to be keep track of all that?
Not only can I not keep track of the ever-expanding Pokemon universe, but the designs are just getting worse and worse. I agree with this article. This might just be where Pokemon is headed.
On another point, how do you discover over 450 new species in a few years? Does anyone else think that any kid with a brain in their head would realize how stupid that is? Where did these Pokemon come from? It was so much simpler back then… and I liked it a lot better when I could count the amount of legendary Pokemon on one hand, now I need a calculator.
Now that there are so many Pokemon that I can’t even keep track of them all, the whole Pokemon world kind of seems cheapened, less important. It’s lost the majesty and wonder it once had.
Also, look at these newest crap starting Pokemon compared to the originals…
