It’s been a while since I wrote a Pokémon List. It feels like nice, comfortable old ground that I have to come back to every now and then. Although at this point I feel like I’m running out of topics to cover in these lists without repeating myself. Then it came to me; the Gen 4 remakes just came out and I don’t think I’m going to buy them.
So why not just lean into that classic, unrealistic level of expectation of the average toxic Pokémon fan and talk about why the new Pokémon games are garbage.
The following article is 75% satirical and I swear I’m not super toxic when it comes to Pokemon whatsoever. You gotta believe me.
These last few days of the year seem like they’re going on forever. I wish so much that 2021 could be like a big reset, but I know in my heart that the first quarter of next year is just going to be more of the same.
If anything, the whole “* year was the worst year” sentiment seems to apply to every year this past decade. It makes me wonder if we’re doomed to have everything suck from now on.
Not exactly the celebratory tone I wanted these best of year posts to carry really. But that’s the mood of 2020, isn’t it. So let’s cheer ourselves up by talking about some happy animals for a while.
This article started life as an especially more mundane list. One in which I listed my favourite gyms throughout Pokemon History. As I struggled to stay awake under the sheer uninterestingness of what I was writing. I had a vision, or maybe it was a dream. One of Pokemon in an entirely new light.
It got my brain going, and before I knew it, my post looking back at the game’s history was scrapped and replaced by something looking toward to the future.
