Banked Out

So the long awaited Pokemon Bank has been released in a handful of countries this week, including the United States. Excitement ensued; I saw many an excited post on facebook, received a couple of excited texts from friends, and even I myself was excited upon first seeing the news. But then I remembered the unfortunate truth; the app will be of little to no use to me. You see, I moved house a little over a year ago...and haven't seen my DS or any of its games since then. So no Pokemon HeartGold, Diamond, Platinum or White for me. So when I saw the bank was out, I couldn't share the excitement of everyone else...and that was simply heartbreaking.

There was a silver lining, though. While I was at work, I remembered that in my recent searches for my lost DS and such, I did see that my GBA was still around, along with some of its games. I was thinking "GREAT! I'll at least get my Gen III Pokemon!". But nope. Three of my GBA games were found with the GBA; neither of my Gen III games were among them.

Ouch.

I did, however, find my Pokemon Yellow. So...there's that, I guess. But I'm not so sure. Is it worth it? We'll see lololol. Either way, if anybody knows the "finding things" fairy, have her give me a buzz.


PS: I've been pretty busy so there hasn't been much on the LP front. I'll try to get something out this weekend though.

    I'll have to start doing that. 10 years from now when the next greatest Poke-invention is released, I'll thank myself.

    Well, I have a special place for Pokemon stuff too, because, well, I don't have too much to make it hard to be sorted out.

    ... at least you found an old game with lots of nostalgia.

    True that. I actually played it a bit the other night. Might do some more of that this weekend; it is certainly nostalgic so in a way it's a nice bit of serendipity!
