Trainer of the Day #1873

The whole premise behind Pokemon is really questionable if you give it a moment’s thought – an adventure based on capturing wild animals and forcing them to fight each other for sport doesn’t seem quite morally sound. Despite that, I keep finding myself pulled back into that world, generation after generation, searching for monsters and battling self-assured villains since fourth grade. There is just something innately satisfying about seeing your little monster friends grow strong under your guidance, like artificial bubbles of parental pride.

Mitch and I embarked on parallel monster-catching adventures today. It’s the first new game he’s had in several years, so this is a momentous occasion. Leyla will be joining us soon as well – we’re expecting good times ahead.
