Well, now we’re on part 4, which I’m thinking should about wrap this up. This time, I want to talk about the game’s influences, as well as other versions and adaptations, as well as some other media I think are kind of like the game. Probably not so much in this post, but

disturbing

Also, for a couple of items, I can’t really talk about their influence without spoiling the shit out of them, so there’s that too. Particularly the section about Jacob’s Ladder.

Fun fact for you all: I had never actually played a Pokemon game. Of course, I’ve known something about the series for a while, mostly through a combination of cultural osmosis and having friends who’ve played them extensively, but it wasn’t really something I’d ever gotten into.

And then Pokemon Go was released on July 6, and needless to say I have become a fan.
