TGIF, guys! Seriously, it has been quite the week. I need me some weekend in the worst way. Amidst some unpleasantness this week, the Pokémon Twitter feed made me smile by announcing it was Charizard week! Charizard is my first favorite, and perhaps still is the ultimate. Seeing this awesome Charizard pokémon card collage made the stress temporarily melt away.
The best news, however, came on Wednesday… and by best news, I mean best freaking news I could think of. I’ve been wondering when a new pokémon version would come out for a while now. I didn’t expect anything, but I was itching for a new adventure. It’s also worth mentioning that Gen 3 is my favorite generation. Of course I loved the original, but the Hoenn region was just so appealing to me– the range of geography, the imaginative towns! Gen 3 also features the remakes of the Gen 1 games, so that helps boost its status with me, but really it’s Hoenn that I want. The Gen 4 remakes of the Gen 2 games made me love them more, but I still love Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald more than anything. On Wednesday, crazy pokémon fanatics like me got news of a dream come true: HOENN REMAKES!! OMEGA RUBY & ALPHA SAPPHIRE!
I can’t wait to see Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire! There’s like no information on them yet, but they are reservable at Game Stop and you can bet I will be reserving them both! I will be counting down the days until November! Thanks, Pokémon for making my entire week! Any Hoenn trainers as excited as I am?!
