I’ve always been a fan of the Pokemon game series. Admittedly, I’ve discovered the anime series first (back in grade school, it was the rage here in the Philippines in the late 1990s) and played my first game (Pokemon Yellow) back in high school using an emulator. After that discovery, I never looked back– I just kept loving and kept playing.
I was a kid then, and was badgering my Mom to buy me a Gameboy Advance SP. She told me: “After you graduated college and have a job, you can buy whatever you want.”
We’re not rich, we’re a middle class family that could think of better ways of spending a few thousand bucks. Buying a gadget on a boy’s whim was not one of them.
So I did what she said. And a few years later, bought myself a Nintendo DS Lite.
You couldn’t imagine the joy I felt when I started playing Pokemon HeartGold in it. One of my dreams: ACHIEVED!
It was just in time for the North American release of Pokemon Black and White too. Obviously, I had to buy myself a copy of one of the games!
Now, in June 23rd, Japan’s gonna release the sequel to the Pokemon Black and White games– Pokemon Black and White 2. Which means I get to have a copy featuring White Kyurem later this fall.
Yep. All good. XD
