I decided that as a closet fan I've had enough of running and hiding in an anti-pokemon neighborhood. I'll change this fact myself.
Before Pokemon Direct was dropped on us all by Iwata, Junichi masuda hyped up the presentation and told us to show it to everyone we know. So I decided to honor his request today.
Today when I was out, I showed some classmates the Nintendo Direct. They were general nintendo fans, but mostly indifferent to Pokemon.
