Achievement Unlocked: Video Games

I’ve waited my entire life for Pokemon Go

By  | 

The Pokemon Company released the trailer for a new mobile game called Pokemon Go coming out in 2016. Not a lot of details or game play was shown. We don’t have a release date.

None of that mattered. I was crying by the end of it.

Since I was ten, I’ve loved Pokemon. I grew up with it. I ran around my front yard chasing invisible little monsters to become a master. I played with my friends in high school, college, and now well into my 20’s. I’ve been playing Pokemon Shuffle every night for months now. I still watch the show every Saturday morning. Heck! Scroll down to the bottom of this post! I literally said in my bio that I wanted to be a Pokemon Coordinator when I grew up!

Now if this trailer for Pokemon Go really is what it looks like, I can play Pokemon in the real world. I can drive to Atlanta and hunt those little buggers in Centennial Olympic Park. I can go to my friend’s apartment to do battle in the parking lot. I can truly be a real life Pokemon trainer.

My lifelong dream has finally come true.

Hope set out into the world to be a Pokemon Coordinator. When she realized that Pokemon were not real, she pursued her other passion: writing. Hope was raised in fandoms and saw how they can help save the world from her work with The Harry Potter Alliance. Now, she works to bring that love into writing one article at a time. She's also a diehard Atlanta Braves fan, so don't diss her team.
