So only a few more weeks, or months.

Rate this Entry
Ever since my sister discovered I had bought Pokemon Black 2, she's been visiting my room more often to try it out. I give her the same warnings on not using the Master Ball and let her play with it.

After she tried playing from the very beginning without saving (so I can still maintain my save file while giving her the tutorial), she said that the game looked impressive, and she'd like to play it if it's the last pokemon game on DS (I told her that the next pokemon games were going to be for the 3DS).

I didn't want to give it to her because I hadn't done everything in the game yet. I haven't finished the Brycen-man Strikes Back Harder movies, and I haven't caught a shiny yet (I did got one by trade, though...). I haven't collected all the medals, and I haven't fought all of N's seasonal pokemons. I haven't explored every single dungeon in the game yet - Black Tower and Benga are still waiting for me, and two or so mountains are still left unexplored. I haven't collected all of N's pokemons yet, and I haven't complete the dex!

But I have to face the truth - I won't be able to play pokemon much, and sooner or later, I'm going to have to move on. I'm already in a dilemma, and the prospect of the exciting Generation 6 is somewhat scaring me. I don't find Pokemon childish at all or any of it as kiddy stuff. The pokemon games are amazing and it has every right to be a sensation for more than 15 years.

Yet, I feel that I might have to let it go. Sure, I could buy the 3DS sometime later and maybe try out the 6th generation. However, real life is pressuring me to leave it behind in my past. There's also the truth of the upcoming Pokemon fan event in March - the participants have reduced to less than a half compared to last year's event. The Pokemon fan event had been one of the most popular events with lots of participants, but now I'm not sure...

Anyways, I promised to give my Pokemon Black 2 game to my sister after I complete the National Dex for the first time ever. I'm going to be really sad when that time comes for me to delete my save file forever and give it to my sister - but at least I know she'll play it well. She'll be coming to my room for advice on type advantages, and she'll ask me which is better, lemonade or soda pop. She'll probably tell me Elesa looks awesome, and do a fist pump when she finally beats Ghetsis. I don't feel so bad when I picture the scene XDD

I guess this is what you get when you've been into pokemon for a long time.

    Aw, that must be sad, but at the same time, that's very nice of you :)

    @Mintaka; Thanks. I guess I finally reached the part where I have to 'grow' out of something. I collected over 400 pokemons, and I got the Bulbasaur egg by Wifi, so only 200 or so more to go. Once I get my Pokemons sorted out for trade, I'm going to ask for dex-completing help here so I can reach my goal more quickly, and explore parts where I haven't been. I'm also planning to challenge the League by solo-ing with each one of my six pokemons for the last memory XDD When I'm done with that, I might feel that I've conquered everything possible in-game :D

    I'd rather look forward to new games than complete the current ones for some sense of finality.

    If you like Pokemon, you don't need to leave it behind. Things that are a part of your life should be kept and cherished. No matter what others think, Pokemon will be a part of us until we choose to let go.

    Don't let those who take themselves too seriously pressure you into giving up the things that you enjoy.

    You are never too old for the things you really love. I never got into the pokemon video games, but I have collected many pokemon plushies over the years and I still have every one I collected(save for two of my gen 1. hasbro plushies that went in the attic years ago and that I have yet to find since, but I will find those two eventually). I'm in my college dorm now, and I've got six of my pokemon plushies here next to me. The rest are waiting for me back at home, and when the time comes that I move out of my parent's house and get my own place, all of my pokemon plushies and my other most cherished plushies will go with me no matter what my family says. Don't let anyone tell you you're too old for something you love, because that's a lie.
