Grunt, Grunt, Poke-Grunt

Sam Walker just had to loan me Pokemon, and I'm only now realizing how dangerous this game can be. In some ways it lessend me, turning me from an able multi-tasker into a single-minded buffoon, utterly entranced by a beeping, flashing box of electronics. But in others, it has made me so much more. I am no longer mild-mannered Max Kuehn. No, I am TANNER, the hottest thing ever to hit the world of Pokemon. I've seriously been thinking about this damn game all day. I was up until 12:30 last night, fighting my imaginary monsters against electronic people's imaginary monsters. Wowsa.

There is an upside, though. I finally see what I was missing, and it is a lot of fun. I'm sorry if I ever made fun of anyone for playing Pokemon. I feel your pain. And your joys and fears. I think we've almost formed a hive-mind.

In conclusion: Before I played Pokemon, I had so many problems. Now I only have one: Pokemon!

Gotta Catch 'Em All, POKEMON!

Max, you needa snap out of it by tomorrow.

I don't want the answer to be something like "neap tides" that only you would get, only to have your mind wondering how many more levels your Nidorina needs to evolve.

We should totally be team rocket for one of these meets.

I'd try to remember their little song, but then John would just make fun of me. Not becuase I knew part of it, but because I didn't know the whole thing.

Okay, who wins in a fight:

Hitmonchan or Hitmonlee?

Machamp or Charizard?

Jigglypuff or Mr. Mime?

Scyther or Pincer?

If all 151 original Pokemon get into a street brawl?

Riddle me that, Maxwell.

My Answers:

1) Hitmonlee, because Bruce Lee in his prime would own Jackie Chan.

2) Charizard, because he can breathe fire and I don't know if Machamp would be able to get a good hit on him.

3) Jigglypuff, because he's secretly a gang leader and he could sing Mime to sleep and then "put 'im to sleep."

4) In a close match, I give a slight edge to Scyther b/c of the ability to fly. Were Scyther matched up with Beedril, this would be a coin-flip.

5) Jigglypuff, because he's from the streets bitch.
