Yes... sorry to those who missed the craze due to chronological station, lack of progeny, dis-interest, or better things to do with your time!
I wasn't really a poke-fan, I played the first game until it got too difficult and then gave up. And I didn't watch the anime much either as it was repetitive and not of a medieval fantasy bent.
But the object was too easily attractive to pass up making. And I knew it would speak to a certain potion of this population. Nostalgia is good. Re-imagined nostalgia is just fun.
