    So Friday I bought from the eShop on my 3dsXL Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver and Crystal.

    Since the screen is bigger than the original 3DS and Gameboy, Color and Advance, I found something that blew my mind!

    The Pokémon trainer known as "Hiker" that since the beginning, I believed that he had a plaid scarf or something around his neck. I just realized that it's not a scarf but is actually his beard. Almost 22 years and I just now noticed it.
    As my favorite saying goes: "Better late than never." :) 

    I just finished hunting Pokémon that are found in the Safari zone in blue and it felt like catching Pokémon in that place was easier than the cartridge ones from back in the day. Never bothered to use the rock and bait. Just waited til the desired Pokémon is encountered and POKÉBALL BARRAGE!!!

    To save money, I saved the game in the area with the Pokémon I'm looking for and reset the game when I run out of time and try again.

    Also got the trading card game video game. We need a new entry.

    Wild Area raids have shifted to feature the Pikachu family, Pichu, Pikachu, Raichu and Alolan Raichu. There's also a chance of encountering a shiny Pikachu.

    During one of the raids I did last night, I actually ended up getting a shiny Alolan Raichu.:D

    I find Gloria's lack of a Scottish accent disturbing.

    There’s a special limited time distribution for Sword/Shield

    Enter the code “TRA1NERSCUP” (not a typo) to get a Shiny Amoonguss. Code is good until Monday at 11AM EST

    Pardon me for raining on your glorious Galarian parade, but I would like to show appreciation to Pokemon Mystery Dungeon sub-series, especially Explorers of Sky, my favorite Pokemon game and one of my favorite games period, with its extremely strong narrative, solid gameplay and memorable cast of characters.
    10 out of 10, would recommend. Other games of the series are strong as well. They can't really measure up to Explorers, but that's one high peak to reach.

    (Also... anyone feels we should promote Kecleon into Legendary?)
