I got stabbed in the heart while playing it at 2am in my city.

Good thing my heart is made of stone.

..apparently there are some at our Consistory Headquarters in NJ. 

The office workers were posting how people have been driving up to the church this week.
They were going to use as an opportunity to educate the visitors on Orthodoxy...but, they never get out of their cars...just drive up, stops a few seconds and zoom off.

I downloaded the game to check it out, but I live in a canyon and work in a sparsely populated area, so the game doesn't offer a lot of opportunities for me.

Annoying.

That's all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

Do you know what Pokemon itself is?
No.  I was hoping that would be explained along the way.
Then my friend there is no hope for you, or for any of us once you realize what people are wasting their time with.

Call me a hipster, but I'm not a big fan of the last two generations of Pokemon, too much theme and detail, they almost look like Digimon or Yu-Gi-Oh monsters. Too much hurry and not enough creativity, so each generation is slightly inferior to the last one. Still Pokemon, however.

The V was indeed disappointing (however many of them was great gamewisely) but I liked the designs of VI. The only contact with the latter I had only via Pokemon Showdown.

I couldn't say they loose creativity either. IV had better designs than III and II for me for example.

I was never really into it.  My sister was, but she got tired of it quickly.  My cousin also was a big fan, both of pokemon and something else, one of the other two you mentioned.

The only time I had to deal with pokemon was in Super Smash Brothers...that was fun.

My opinion of Holy Russia and Saint Vladimir rises ever higher.
