So, I've got Morrowind pulled up on my computer right now, paused, and what am I doing? Playing Pokemon. Like a winner.

I don't know. I do want to keep playing the Elder Scrolls but at the same time, ugggggh. I go check for fics and they all make me cringe. Like I am not a fan of second-hand embarrassment, I'll tell you whayt. And there's just so much second-hand embarrassment I keep coming across.

Again, I love the Elder Scrolls like anything but maybe I do need to take a break. And Pokemon is a pretty great needed break. I'm still dicking around with it, though. Because I don't know which cartridge to put my entire living dex on. For the 3DS Pokemon games, I have Pokemon X (Digital), Pokemon X (Cartridge), Pokemon Y (Cartridge), Pokemon AS (Digital), Pokemon AS (Cartridge), and Pokemon OR (Cartridge). Right now ALL my pokemon - my living Pokedex, shiny pokemon, Pokerus pokemon, foreign pokemon - are on Omega Ruby. But the problem is, if I want to replay that, I can't. Because that means my ENTIRE dex will be erased. So, my issue is... should I get a digital version of Omega Ruby? That way my cartridge can sit and be my Living Dex. Or should I just withhold myself because come on. When the next game comes out, all my pokemon will be transferred anyways.

The hard decisions in life, I know. But considering I've been playing Pokemon for... Let's see, I started with Pokemon White so... 2011? I started? Yeah, so I've only been playing Pokemon for 4 years but I have every single game. I've beaten Platinum twice like a boss because it is my favourite. I have two cartridges of Diamond, two of Platinum, two of White 2, two of Black 2, the japanese versions of HeartGold, White, and White 2... like I have spent a good long time getting everything. I can still recall the day I went to EB Games and got Keldeo for White 2. Getting my Arceus from the DreamWorld. My dear sweet darling Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina shinies. There's so many memories.

And with those comes replay value. I honestly think Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are the best in the entire series now (until Platinum comes out on re-release). I love them. I love them SO fucking much like clenching hands and tears. So, it wouldn't be a loss to get it again. I would definitely replay them. But again... moneeey. I severely lack it.

Hmm. Something to think about I suppose.

Right now, though, I think I need to go back and check out all my save files and document them. Maybe I need to get back into Pokemon. Or at least my favourites. Because shit, I think I'll keep loving pokemon until the day I die.

So that's my goal today.

And, for fun, here's my ranking of the games.

1. Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby
2. Platinum
3. Diamond/Pearl
4. White/Black
5. Ruby/Emerald/Sapphire
6. FireRed/LeafGreen
7. White 2/Black 2
8. HeartGold/SoulSilver
9. X/Y

Not going to lie, X/Y is always going to be my least favourite. Like it was so bland. I felt like it was just a FANBOY KANTO LOVESTORY AND THIRTEEN NEW POKEMON push. The story is just awful. The villain crying was so fucking embarrassing. And the postgame was shit. Just, never will I like it.

And I love Lyra from HGSS but the lack of diverse pokemon (how many fucking rattatas do you feel the need to punish people with) and the START IN KANTO NOW! ALL THE POKEMON ARE LEVEL 3. THE GYM LEADERS ARE LEVEL 59, not to mention the horrible phone system just killed it for me.

And yeah, Platinum and now ORAS will be my tops because I fucking love Sinnoh, I fucking love RES and the remakes made it so much more incredible and I will fangirl for them for eternity now.
