    Part of what makes Pokemon so interesting is seeing how humans cope living in a world full of supernatural monsters, especially in times when they didn't have technology for easily dealing with it. Fantasy dinosaurs just fighting and frollicking and eating eachother is a lot less interesting even if you do make them breathe fire or move shit with their mind.

    Dinosaur skeletons look neat, but I can't imagine that any of them ever did anything important.

    I like the Mystery Dungeon series and there's no people in them.

    (then again the pocketmons themselves act as the people in them)

    That and there's signs that humans have already existed in those games. Post apocalyptic settings are more interesting to me than Mesozoic age settings.

    There's a lot of cute/elegant merch out there for Mew, but all of the Mewtwo merch out there is pretty lazy. I'm bummed about it.

    Remeber when Mew giveaways were at those special events like in malls with those kiosk things you put your cartridge into? This was around 2000, when that first movie came out in Burgerland.

    :confused:

    The way rare pocketmon giveaways happened in the '00s was easier: bring DS game to a wireless point in certain stores, have 'mon wirelessly transferred, pick up in-game from a delivery guy.

    Yeah, I know Celebi never made it to the West for events back in G/S/C days. It sucked because as a kid I was wondering where the hell the events were and I sort of assumed it was because I lived in a small town that I didn't get them

    I didn't even get a Pokemon game until Gen 2, and I don't recall ever having access to in-person event Pokemon. I DID get my mystery gift Mew in Violet though in preparation for that Mewtwo raid. That was a fun time. I ended up with a mystery gift Darkrai too.

    Where I lived during the peak of the first 'mon craze* had an in-person Mew giveaway event at some mall.

    * The second 'mon craze was when Pokemon Go came out.
