Happy Monday! Kris here!
Pokemon is continuing with their Legendary giveaways with their 20th anniversary celebration. Have you been keeping up with them?
Besides the list of Legendaries that they’re giving away via the Nintendo Internet links and the GameStop cards, they’re also being free with extras like the Shiny Xerneas and Shiny Yvetal to tie in with a special trading card game sets. They’re definitely fun extras and fantastic for your game collections.
However, on Rachel’s and my journey the other day to visit various GameStops to each get enough Darkrai cards (because why not, right?), I had a, “Back in my day…” moment.
Basically, back in my day of the original Red/Blue/Yellow versions and beyond, we all had to go through the game, raise an army of Pokemon, and spend too much time lugging Ultra Ball after Ultra Ball at Mewtwo in the Cerulean Cave (because we had already used our Master Ball on one of the legendary bird trio).
Now, between my X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire versions, I’m pretty sure I have enough Mewtwo for a full team.
I’m thankful for the generous opportunity to receive all these legendary Pokemon for my games, of course, but… I don’t know, I feel as if we’re missing out on the feeling of anticipation, excitement, and satisfaction of catching the “one and only” legendaries of the games.
Maybe I’m just old.
