Early in 2018, a permanent Pokémon Café opened in Tokyo, and I was lucky enough to be able to visit it when I was in Japan! It’s been just about a year since I went, but I’m finally getting around to sharing my impressions… with lots of photos, of course!Read More
This month, we’re shifting the Community Game-Along theme focus away from genres of games to a game developer! The theme for May is Game Freak, the Japanese game developer famous for the Pokémon series. But that’s not all! This month is a great time to dive into the rest of their catalog, from Drill Dozer to Pocket Card Jockey.Read More
Have you seen the new Eevee Tamagotchi models available in Japan? It’s totally adorable! Of course, I had to pick one up, and I used the opportunity to film an unboxing video! In the video, I also hatch my first Eevee and go through how to play it in Japanese. Check it out below!Read More
I’ve been following PaletteMeli on Instagram for a while now, and I always love her adorable pastel designs! Which is why when I heard that she had opened preorders for a new Pokétreat pin series and extended the deadline when the preorder goal hadn’t been met, I knew I had to share it to help spread the word!
I first became aware of Stasia’s adorable brand Ugly Plants around the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, when photos of her amazing Mimikyu plushies were circulating around the internet. But I soon found out that Stasia is not only extremely skilled at making plushies of Pokémon and other cute characters, but all kinds of other merchandise, too!
I love how my February Favorites roundup is at two extremes: on one end, I purchased a sticker book that is meant for children, and on the other, I’m perfecting the very boring yet adult art of organizing my clothes. At least I keep things interesting! This month’s post will be shorter than previous Favorites, but you may be surprised to read what I have to say about each one of my picks!
In our first episode of 2017, we take a trip in a time machine… All the way back to November 2016 (when this episode was originally recorded)! Times were bleak because Trump was just elected, so really, not much has changed.

Happy year of the rooster, everyone!
