Ok, when they writing about new sets its promotion!!! Delete pokebeach because they promote pokemon!!!Sigh…
There are honestly times when I wish that last May’s Target fiasco caused an even BIGGER stink in the trading card scene, this is one of those times.
The announcement of ANOTHER piece of media that glorifies this disgusting (I’d use another word here, but people take issue with it for various reasons) part of the fandom, especially when we’re dealing production/shipping delays and product shortages, is something that should NOT be celebrated in the slightest.
But you wanna know what REALLY grinds my gears here? This part of the article:
“hahahahahaha! …oh wait you’re serious, lemme laugh even harder. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!”
Seriously, reading the article made me mildly disgusted at first but this paragraph here made me want to puke. This is where this article went from a simple report on a show that has some of its toes in the Pokémon TCG to an advertisement and active casting call for said show.
And you know what? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t lose some respect for the site because of that.
Ok boomer :v
