Well friends, we’ve finally come to the tentative end of our journey. Two and a half years ago, on New Year’s Day, I started a brand-new blog where I wrote down my opinions on every Pokémon ever designed. While I didn’t manage to get one out every single day, I came pretty damn close, and kept up with it all the way until now, making it the only New Year’s Resolution that I’ve (and, perhaps, anyone else has) ever actually kept. I had an incredible amount of fun with it, and while it’s a little bittersweet that it’s over, I’m incredibly proud of myself for getting it all done!
First of all, my biggest thanks for this whole thing definitely goes to the awesome Aussie, Rachel MacWhirter, whose own blog posts “My Opinions on Every Pokémon Ever” - and, more specifically, the fact that the posts petered out after a while - inspired me to create my own. You can check out her original posts on her old blog here, and her current Tumblr here!
My second biggest thank-you goes out to everyone who ever liked and/or reblogged my posts. Seriously, it sounds like a small thing, but that’s exactly what kept me going. This blog doesn’t have a lot of followers and I only occasionally get messages, so sometimes I’ve felt like nobody would care if I just stopped updating- until I got a Like, or a Reblog, and I stood up and declare, “No! THAT ONE PERSON will be very disappointed if there is no post tomorrow!”, and I queued like a good little boy should.
A lot of you are probably wondering what will happen to this blog. Well, of course, it’s almost a certainty that X & Y are not the end of Pokémon, and that in a short time we’ll get a whole new Generation that I can give my thoughts on. When that day comes, I will indeed be back, but that may be years from now. In the meantime, I do indeed have some plans for using this blog that will begin in the not-too-distant future (next Sunday, A.D.!), but I’m a busy guy this summer and have other stuff I’d like to work on, so I’ll definitely be taking a break.
While you wait, you can follow me on my personal blog, where I tend to update at least once a day, and you can also follow my movie poster and movie trailer blogs, which I’ve just recently started and am very excited about!
And while you’re at it- ASK ME SOME QUESTIONS! I love hearing from you guys and I also love talking ceaselessly about myself, so all in all it’s a darn fine way to get my attention!
Well, true believers, it’s the end of the road- until construction starts back up! (Is that a decent metaphor? I’ve never been good with those.) Until we meet again… Excelsior!
