Hey sal!! When did you realize that you loved skitty?
It was four years ago! The whole thing with Skitty started with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. Since it was the first time I played this game, I wasn’t too familiar with the Personality Quiz, but I tried to get female Riolu all the time (unless I actually played EoT/EoD instead of EoS), thinking that it would align with my personality and I always had a preference for choosing female characters in Pokemon as some sort of tradition, anyways, I was one of those individuals who loved “COOL AND AWESOME” Pokemon and I’m “COOL AND AWESOME”.
However, for some reason, I always got Skitty in the personality quiz, despite not wishing to be the tiny pink cat, so I kept resetting the game, but no, I couldn’t get Riolu, the game always chose Skitty, Pikachu or Chikorita for me. A friend of mine started to tease me about it all the time, and eventually, I just let it sink in, and so I started my first playthrough on Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of sky with a Skitty and ever since then, I wouldn’t realize how powerful Skitty really was in the game.
So I just slowly grew myself attached to the Skitty and eventually, it became my favorite Pokemon! Skitty has been nothing but a positive force since then.
