Some Pokémon you collect just because you don’t have them. Others hold a special place in your heart. For me that is many of the original Pokémon from the Kanto region. I grew up playing with them and often I catch them even if I don’t need them because I think they will always be the best!
For me one of these is Venusaur. Back when I first got Red Version for the Gameboy I chose Bulbasaur as my very first Pokémon. He was durable and could be used in a variety of situations. Also, I thought he looked cool. When I decided to play through the game a second time I still chose Bulbasaur! I just thought he was the best…
While I am excited that I got Venusaur I’m also glad I caught/evolved some other Pokémon too. I’m always pleasantly surprised when I see a Pokémon I haven’t caught yet.
I’ve also been on top of making sure that I get my daily research stamp. Getting enough gives you access to a prize box and a shot at a rare Pokémon. The last three special encounters have unfortunately been the same Pokémon each time. That Pokémon is the floral Eevee. While I am glad I caught one I am disappointed to not have a shot at other rare Pokémon… I’ll obviously keep plugging away, but in the mean time if anyone wants to trade for one of my three floral eevee’ I would be interested!
