Everywhere I go, I see people glued to their cellphones. “Pinsir,” they murmur. “Chansey”.”Wartortle”. And then it hits me. My PTSD. Pokémon Traumatic Stress Disorder. I flash back to those days during the war, where men would die just so that they could trade Machokes and force an evolution. The days where our drill sergeant would force us to recite the entire original Pokérap. I remember the fall of the Pokemon gyms, and the rise of the Elite 4. DON’T LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN! WE SHAN’T SURVIVE ANOTHER POKÉWAR!
