With Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (check out my review here) coming out this week Pokémon is the hot topic of the day. We were contacted by an enthusiastic writer who wished to share with us her love of the 25-year-old franchise.
This 3,000-word epic breaks down every element of the series. Nothing is left unloved. From understanding the importance of the trading card game to the beauty of Pokémon Go if you’re a fan you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t check out this article.
I’d like to thank the author Joanna Thomas from Hobby Help for getting in touch. Seeing her enthusiasm and joy for TCG and Pokémon, in general, is quite infectious and reminded me of my love of the franchise.
It’s also a reminder that there are a lot of unsung heroes out there and I’d love to hear more of your stories so send on them on. With Pokémon, I suppose this article reminded me of the madness of the Trading Card Game and in my life, in particular, it was quite mad.
I suppose what I’m trying to say and choosing an odd time to say it is this. We live in a time of a lot of fuss and fools and we need to have fun. To engage with everyone who gets joy out of all those weird elements out there in the world and Pokémon is one of those pieces of the world that so many people can connect on so go out there and have fun.
