Ouissss. We love Pokétoons – not just because they are beautiful and very, very cute, but because they give us a glimpse into the everyday lives of people who aren’t necessarily 10-year-old coaches or gym leaders.
In the last Pokétoon, which according to our very good
Apparently, while many of us took a while to catch certain Pokémon, some older people have a ton. The little girl’s grandparents have a Darumaka and an Eevee as regular pets, a Minccino for dusting the hut floor, a Joltik, a Spinarak and an Ariados for helping the grandmother to knit and a Haxorus for chop wood.
But above all, the little girl really wants to see the Slugma that her grandparents use to heat the house. He usually lives in the pipes or the various wood stoves (Slugma-burning?) Around the house, but she can’t catch up to him. Apparently, her temporary guardians aren’t too worried about her catching the creature made entirely of red-hot lava.
This is So cute though, details like little Joltik grabbing a spin on the head of the grandfather’s daughter polishing the… head… of the axes of Haxorus? It is extremely appealing to see the characters interacting with the Pokémon on a daily basis, giving them berries, hugging them, and seeing the Pokémon react in the same way. It makes us wish Pokémon were real, for the millionth time.
