    Default The quest for Mew: not easy: A college sophomore's adventure

    Yesterday Toys "R" Us stores across the United States, in conjunction with Pokémon USA, distributed the rare Pokémon Mew in perhaps the nation's largest Pokémon giveaway yet. Expecting to show up to an empty store and clueless employees, I was surprised when my local store was crowded with spoiled brats wanting another legendary for their unstoppable teams.

    Wow. I have been telling people about being part of the Filb.de staff at German Pokémon events and they didn't care. :( Perhaps I would have to be beatiful girl.

    Wait...you WEREN'T expecting that? That's a given! I bet all of them LOVED Charizard. XD

    Unfortunately for my boyfriend (not a fan of Pokémon)
    Awww, it sucks when your boyfriend doesn't like what you like..

    That award goes to a man with a hairstyle that screamed "angry recluse."
    Lol, ANGRY!

    They mentioned that a Web site had posted the sprites of them. I said Filb uploaded them, but they didn't seem to recognize them. I then asked if they had seen them on Serebii.net, which they had.
    I don't blame them really, I mean FIlb is German afterall, and it would be harder to stumble upon on Google.

    Not being able to resist promoting this site, I asked if they were familiar with Bulbagarden. It didn't ring a bell, but they had heard of Bulbapedia, and appeared quite excited to learn that I was the wiki's style editor. I was just glad to learn that we're reaching people
    Did they know who I am? Please say yes! XD

    The remainder of the crowd consisted of overweight boys around age 10, all with the same haircut and the same style of dress. Their cries of "Who wants to battle my team?" prompted me and my teenage line buddies to complain about the overuse of legendaries. Of course, one of the boys was using Lugia.
    You should of challenged him to a DUEL!

    Wi-Fi trading will most likely eliminate the need for face-to-face interaction. While this is extremely convenient for gamers such as me who live in areas not apt to be visited by legendary-distributing tours, it will certainly decrease the need for congregation. Don't get me wrong- I'm not complaining. I just wonder what effect it will have on the franchise.
    Thank god we won't have to listen to the 10-year old, or smell them when we battle!


    Nice article Argy!

    Children suck nowadays, and I blame MTV, 4kids, Bush, and Yugioh!

    Wait...weren't YOU complaining about people as well, Justin?
