I am not lost…

Memory vs. Reality, IRL Edition

I’m jumping back into a topic I was talking a lot about earlier, but it’s been a while, so now you’ve forgotten how manically I was posting about Pokémon there for a while.

…no? You didn’t forget? Well poop. Sorry?

In any event, this is something I came across back when I was relaunched into my childhood, looking at Pokémon and seeing what I spent so much of my childhood on. I found my old Game Boy and all my games, and set out to see what my character looked like, where I’d left them all those years ago.

And I got a bit of a surprise.

One Day I’ll Come Back

So since I’m really a one trick pony, I’m still talking about Pokémon. 🙂 Consider yourself forewarned. This isn’t REALLY about Pokémon, nor about PokéGo. This is about the fact that I’ve been delving back into my childhood through my Pokémon CDs and music. It’s been bringing back some interesting thoughts: of course Dratini is first when you choose dragon; there’s only 1 dragon line of evolution in the first 150…of course Mewtwo’s the best when you get psychic; have you ever played the game?…why in the world did you choose Geodude for rock? Or Caterpie for bug? Give me an Onyx or a Scyther any day.

But what really got me was something in a different song. I take you now to Viridian City.

Nostalgia, I Choose You!

(I had some other idea for a post the other day, but I can’t remember what it was anymore, so I can’t very well write about it. So let’s talk about this other thing. 🙂 )

So if you live on the Internet like I do, then you’ve probably noticed the massive influx of posts regarding the augmented reality (AR) mobile phone game, PokémonGO. As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in joy and were suddenly silenced as they stared at the downloading progress bar. (That’s how the quote goes, yeah?) I will admit, as soon as I found out that the app had launched, I launched myself at the App Store to download it. I’ve been excited for PokéGO ever since I heard that it was being developed. I suppose I wasn’t quite expecting the huge outburst it mustered–though I seem to be one of the only ones who wasn’t surprised by the server lag. (Come on. Really?)

But still, the whole phenomenon amuses me.
