An Anime you wished was real (Pokemon)
Ever since the Pokemon series debuted in the 1990s, I have always wondered what it would be like to live in the Pokemon universe. I would imagine waking up as a child, excited to choose my first Pokemon. I usually picked Pikachu or Abra. Playing out my adventure, I would travel from city to city, collecting badges and Pokemon. During my journey, I would meet new friends and gain fame as one of the greatest Pokemon trainers. As I got older, these fantasies dimmed. However, Pokemon remained a part of my life. Playing hundreds of hours, I could experience what it would be like to live in the Pokemon universe.
Catching, training and naming these digital Pokemon was an acceptable substitute for the dreams of my childhood. I always thought it would be cool if the world of Pokemon was real. The Pokemon anime series seems based on the actual world, anyway. I would image that it would be like various sports. With the release of Pokemon Twilight Wings last year, the series took another step towards breathing life into the series. I may be too old for my childhood dreams of catching them all, but Pokemon remains a world I would love to live in.
