All trainers have been there, some of the trials and tribulations of playing Pokémon.
The Pokémon games are pretty fun and they’d want to be as the core fundamentals essentially haven’t changed since Pokémon Red and Blue on GameBoy but sometimes, they can be a tad annoying too.
Pressing ‘A’ too quickly and having to talk to the Pokémon Center nurse again.
Entering a zubat infested cave.
Challenging your rival to a battle.
Searching through random trash cans for items.
Challenging the Elite Four.
‘There’s a time and a place for everything’ – well maybe I want to ride my bicycle indoors, professor.
Returning to your hometown with a level 60 team to take on the level 2 Pokémon.
Team Rocket/Magma/Plasma etc. talk tough but then send out Pokémon like rattata…
Bug-type trainers who talk even tougher.
Trainers who only have magikarp.
Seeing an item but not having the right HM to reach it yet.
That moment when you realise you’re effectively enslaving innocent creatures to battle for your own amusement.
But then, they do attack you for no reason whatsoever.
‘Finishing’ Gold/Silver and realising the game is twice as big as you thought it was.
Which was actually really cool.
Especially when you learn it was all made possible by the late, great Satoru Iwata.
Beating Red is still one of the coolest things in the entire series.
Wondering why it took so long to remake Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald.
Navigating ice fields in caves/gyms.
Once, there were 150 Pokémon. Now there are over 650.
The legendary Pokémon who keep fleeing whenever you approach them.
I have never even seen a shiny.
They seem to have stopped putting useful items in the trash cans but still let you look inside anyway.
But hey, you can move diagonally in X/Y.
