Acquisition: A black Kangaskhan day.

My tale of acquisition is less about getting my hands on a game as it is obtaining an in-game element, but it was a quest enough in and of itself.

The rest of the afternoon consisted of a small tournament, in which I got blown out of the water in my second round by some mouthbreather in his mid-20s who'd been winning these things all up and down the mid-Atlantic region, some demos of Pokémon Stadium and a few other N64 games, and some other pokédickingaround for which I didn't hang around all that long. I had to get my new friend home safe, and figure out what sort of moveset to give her.

In the end, I ended up just leveling my Mew naturally, though she cleaned house just with her default moveset. She helped me pick up a few legendaries I hadn't been able to subdue up to that point, and found a comfortable home on my Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Stadium 2 cartridges, mostly unused after the first Stadium given that I'd decided to take the high road and considered legendary pokémon "cheap." She was one of the few who survived a terrible accident in my early attempts to catch 'em all and dump them onto my Yellow cartridge even before then, wherein I was (unwisely) popping whichever cartridge I needed to organize and level certain 'mons on into my Super Game Boy, and forgot to kill the power before pulling the cartridge back out one night, in my excitement as I was getting close to completing my collection. I still have the certificate somewhere, and chances are, some lucky bastard got her after I traded in both Stadium games and my Game Boy era Pokémon titles upon learning there was no way to transfer them up to the new Game Boy Advance games.

I miss her sometimes. But then I just swap in a pokémon who can use Swift, and that tends to solve the problem nicely.

About nekobunone of us since 5:17 PM on 06.29.2007

Hi, I'm Chris, though I've been going by nekobun and variants thereof for so long, I kind of answer to both anymore.

While I've kind of got my own thing going in the realm of indie coverage, at least in the form of playing through (and streaming) (and writing about) the huge backlog I'm developing of games gleaned from various indie bundles, I try to keep my more mainstream, game-related features here, as well as opinion pieces on the industry at large, out of mad love for the 'toid. When I'm not rambling here or trying to be clever in comments threads, you can catch me rambling on Facebook and my Twitter, and trying to be clever in the Dtoid.tv chat.
