recently i rediscovered my love for pokemon. this phase lasted precisely one week but it was honestly the best week of my life. i caught a chansey, i took a bunch of pictures, and i felt refreshed and fulfilled to the point where the trials and tribulations of the ordinary world meant very little to me.
i don't know if its purely the childhood nostalgia of this game or if there is something deeper about pokemon that makes it so pleasing and fun to play. the scenery, the artwork, the music, it all comes together to create a very aesthetically pleasing game that will transport you to a place of bliss and comfort. i documented the most aesthetically pleasing moments.
beyond the joy of pleasing aesthetics, my new pokemon team also brought me a lot of joy. i am taking a snorlax named Zayn, a clefairy named Paris, a chansey named Gem, a horsea named Bubbles, a butterfree named Apollo and a flareon named Ginger to the elite four. lately my aesthetic in real life has been girly, pink and cute, and the fact that i can also live that aesthetic out in the pokemon world makes me very happy. if i were a pokemon trainer i would be a beauty and i would have long hair, a skanky outfit, a big purse, and an adorable yet unbeatable team.
but until the day i do get magically transported to the Kanto region, i guess the original game that i play on my gameboy will have to be enough.
