Remember the days when your only evening responsibility was holing yourself up in your bedroom and battling Pokemon on your Gameboy for an indefinite amount of time? How about when the only fat stacks you were worried about acquiring were new packs of Pokemon cards? Those were the simple times.

Thankfully, we can all finally regress back to that childhood love affair with Pokemon without having to disassociate from the outside world.
