pokémon 2000

One of the neat things I like about Pokemon GO is how it recreates Pokemon experiences I thought died a long time ago.

Like, the other day I ran into a 10-year-old who promised me that nicknaming my Eevee would control its evolution, and to trust him because his friend who’s a professional gamer said so. (True.)

Another person told me that walking away from the starters four times would get me a free Pikachu. (True.)

I looked it up online and found blurry pictures of a Zaptos and IT TOTALLY EXISTS YOU JUST GOTTA GET TO THE SECRET LOCATION posts. (False.)

At this point I would be entirely unsurprised if Nintendo released Mew and it could only be found under a truck by a ship.
