    The Voyage of the Lost Pokewalker

    Being a game journalist isn’t as interesting as one might think. You get used to reporting things that you hear through the internet, there’s this layer of emotional distance between you and the stories. It’s rare to pick up interesting gaming stories in my own life, so when I heard one when out drinking last night, I had to repeat it.

    I enjoyed that. As a Pokémon newspaper Bulbanews can and should incorporate stories from members of the wider community.

    I enjoyed the review/analysis on HGSS and if it helped the series.

    This was a bit...disapointing.

    I enjoyed the story, it was interesting, it got me thinking: "Will he get his Pokewalker back?". Good reading.

    ... That was AWESOME.
    And I think it's nice that there's a little focus to the individual stories of the players in general.

    But now, making an announcement through the entire system, bother to retrieve it, and send it back to the owner? Either someone wanted to play hero, or that's quite an amazing service.

    Quoted for truth. That's why it's "Bulbanews, your community Pokémon newspaper."

    I am very paranoid about keeping track of my Pokéwalker. If I ever did lose it, I would hope I would be lucky enough to have such awesome people help out. Pearte, is one lucky little Hoothoot.

    Cute story, I can relate. I'm paranoid about keeping track of my Pokewalker D:

    I still don't like having editorials on Bulbanews, though. I guess I'm closed-minded like that.

    You know, if you lose the Pokewalker, the Pokemon inside isn't lost forever. It's still stored on the game cart and you can retrieve it.

    Heh, thats an interesting story, different from most news I've seen on BulbaNews. I'd probably go into hunter mode if I lost my Pokewalker.

    I'm with Iteru on this. While yeah, it'd be nice if Bulbanews had some more Human Interest-like stories every now and then, this was a completely pointless tale that only deserved a passing mention over drinks, not a news post on one of the biggest Pokemon news sites on the internet.

    I disagree, I thought the story was funny and I enjoyed reading it. It was just a fun little story that made me laugh.

    Whenever I wear my pokewalker, I check to see if it is there about 1000 times, I would really hate to lose it. Glad he found it.
