I don’t remember playing Pok√©mon Y. Well, that’s not totally true. I remember the beginning, and a little bit of the end. There’s this whole section in the middle I have no recollections of. I did all the things, but it was apparently so forgettable that I did. Defeating the elite 4 was the only thing I never got around to doing. An any post game stuff too, but whatever. In any case I finally did so I could finish Sapphire, so I could get to Sun. It looked like they added enough stuff in Sun/moon to maybe make it interesting again. Didn’t want to pass over Sapphire though. So I made a little team of monsters from outside the game so they would level up faster and it wouldn’t take so long with a bunch of needless grinding.

I must have been sick when I was playing Y. I find that I don’t remember a lot of what I was doing at that time. Just bits and pieces. I could probably go back into the archive and look at the blog to see when exactly I did it, but I guess it doesn’t matter really. The fact that I remember fire emblem but not pokemon speaks a lot about the generally forget ability of the gameplay after all this time though. It seems like they’re trying to combat this a little in Sun/moon because the opening parts seem much more interesting that the last couple of games. I like the player customization again too. In Y I made the avatar look like Jo. In Sun I made her look like Nina. Carol is my avatar in Animal Crossing and both Fire Emblems. Reggie is my Avatar in my alternate AC town, but the main town has extra players of Jo and Nina too. not that any of that information is important really.

I’ve been watching this Scottish sitcom called Still Game. It’s neat. It’s about old people doing stuff in a little town that’s gone to shit over the years. As I’ve said before, I like seeing the minutia of other cultures and this show is that. Of course it’s minutia of really old people but still. I like that Netflix is willing to try stuff like that.

Anyway, I’m tired, so I’m gonna get ready for bed. Have fun doing your things today, and reading the comic.
