  1. Without a doubt the greatest Pokémon blog I’ve seen ever, but where’s Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD Gale of Darkness in all of this???
    I really wish they’d done more with Rangers in the anime and games. I would’ve preferred a switch ranger game with joycon motion use for taming or something… Would’ve even liked an XD Gale of Darkness remake more than Snap

    I’m intrigued to get more info on the battle and catching mechanics. Looks more realistic and I like that.
