Pokemon turns 20 this year. To celebrate, Pokemon Inc. bought time for a Super Bowl commercial!
And they've launched a special site! Pokemon20.com!
AND they're giving away free legendary Pokemon as mystery gifts! Once every month!!!! This month is Mew!!
AND.... ....All my Pokemon games are in storage. In that back of the unit.
Anyway, let's not dwel on that. Let's talk about something special to us all.
What was your first exposure to Pokemon? The anime? The games? A classmate's TCG collection?
My first experience was the first episode of the anime. It came on TV one day without warning, replacing "Garfield and Friends" without warning. I had no idea what it was. (Didn't have internet at the time, and even then, I would never have thought to look into Japanese pop culture back then.) It was a new show, and a clean slate.
It was like nothing I'd ever seen before. I didn't know who made it, or where it had come from, but I knew I loved it! That was my the beginning of my journey into the world of Pokemon.....
