Random Facts

  • I’m not sure what I’m going to do next year for the holidays. Are there any more Pokemon who would work for a special holiday edition of Here’s Another Pokemon?
  • If you were wondering, the Cutiefly song was much harder to write than this. And yes, I cheated and included one Pokemon, Pidgey, which I’ve not covered yet. But it fit so perfectly...
  • Oh something about Delibird? Here’s a fact: It wasn’t until halfway through the song that I got the pun. Delibird. Deliviered. Ah... clever.

Happy Holidays!

No best comment this weekend! Instead, let me know who your favorite Pokemon I covered in 2020 was or if I didn’t cover your favorite, let me know and I’ll try to fix that in 2021

This year has been a fucking terrible mess, as thousands of others have written about already. I don’t presume to think my silly Pokemon blogs are saving lives. But I do hope that for a few minutes each weekend you folks get to have a bit of laugh and read some silly comments. Tiny distractions like that are the key to making it through shit years like 2020.

Hopefully, 2021 is better and you all have a great rest of the year.
