Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing good. This time, after college middle-term-test (and a long time since my last blog post) I want to tell you about Pokémon. I bet none of you that doesn’t know Pokémon.
Pokémon (???? Pokémon?, /‘po?ke?m?n/ poh-kay-mon) is a media franchise published and owned by Japanese video game company Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1996. Originally released as a pair of interlinkable Game Boy role-playing video games developed by Game Freak, Pokémon has since become the second-most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Nintendo’s own Mario franchise. Pokémon properties have since been merchandised into anime, manga, trading cards, toys, books, and other media.
I’ve known Pokémon since middle school, back then my parents bought me some Pokémon Anime DVDs, because of that, I really wanted to have Pokémon games. The first Pokémon Movie I’ve watched was Pokémon the Movie 2000, or in Japan: Pocket Monsters the Movie: Lugia’s Revelations. Even now, the movie is still entertaining, I think it’s one of the best anime movie I’ve ever seen. Because of that movie, Lugia is currently my favorite Pokémon.
At 2nd grade of middle school, my parents bought me a Game Boy Advance (GBA) SP. My first game was Pokémon FireRed, a remake of Pokémon Red Version in GameBoy. I chose Charmander as my starter, he became level 95 Charizard). My main Pokémon was level 100 Dragonite, I beat Elite Four only with her. Really, my Dragonite was very strong back then. Unfortunately, my save file was corrupted, so I have to say goodbye for my Dragonite, Charizard, and my other Pokémon(s).
Then, my childhood friend, Jason Oliver, was playing Pokémon Emerald on his PC, his team was full of legendaries (He cheated). Not a long time after that, I bought Pokémon Emerald for my GBA SP, but this game I bought was corrupted, after I beat Elite Four, my save file was also corrupted, I was very depressed back then, since I already caught Rayquaza without Master Ball.
Now, thanks to Aulia Arshad, my college friend, I can play Pokémon White 2 in my mother’s tab. My main Pokémon are: Lucario, Dragonite, Samurott, Cobalion, and Virizion. I already beat every Gym Leaders. The things left to do are catching the legendaries, beating Team Plasma, and becoming Unova region’s Champion. To all of you who have not played Pokémon White 2 yet, you have to play it. The gameplay is better than Pokémon B/W, but Unova region Pokémon design are somehow lame.
Rian and want to buy a 3DS, Nintendo’s new handheld console, so we can play the newest Pokémon, Pokémon X/Y, and held a Pokémon battle. I really looking forward to beat Rian easily, like I did with some Naruto games.
So that’s my story about my favorite monsters, Pokémon 😀
