And here we have the Natural Harmonia Tropius in his natural habitat.
So, crap. I should have reblogged this way sooner for 10/10. FFFF.
I really need a vacation.
You play as a piece of paper and you team up with other pieces of papers to go and fight other pieces of paper on elementary school art dioramas so you can save another piece of paper and oddly enough you do this by collecting rocks
a dirty hobo gets lost in the jungle and eats animals off the ground
Lazy-ass kid celebrates his birthday by watching his little sister get kidnapped by a giant rooster and then teams up with a crew of pirates and their tsundere captain to save her
a fat photographer goes to a mall and takes pictures of really tired people for 3 straight days
An elf from space commands an army of carrots who run into walls and enemies triple your size.

an obnoxious & annoying child dragon wakes up the elderly, who’re too useless to do it themselves. At the same time he also has to reclaim their stolen finances which are lazily thrown around the entire world. And despite being a dragon and having wings, he has to travel the whole world by foot.
A cabbit-like thing runs around shooting a priestess out of a giant ring and he can use his bigass ears to fly for a few short feet they have a creepy looking dog follow them idk i guess he’s dreaming and he has to go stop a really sad green cabbit dude from making things more sad and they also have to stop a pirate chick and her cat from stealing an orb or something sometimes he surfs on a board sometimes too
You run around yelling at dragons while these fucking wolves keep coming out of nowhere and killing your horse
You’re a politician in debt for a ridiculous amount of money and have to pay it off. Several times.
Everyone’s a huge racist asshole and you’re expected to fix all their shit for them
You know that one song you love? With the badass solo? GOOD LUCK PASSING IT. LET ALONE GETTING EVERY SINGLE BUTTON RIGHT. Go professional? Have fun messing up playing even the simplest of notes. YOU JUST HAVE TO HIT THIS ONE FIVE FUCKING TIMES. TO PLAY THE ENTIRE SONG. WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU. AND YOU THINK YOU CAN GO HARDER?
You’re a blond girly robot dude with missing booblights and you team up with a human blond with no boobs who may or may not want your robo-dick.
Your enemies are a yandere fish-girl robot, a girly masochistic bird robot, a robot rip-off of Batman, and a robot dragon with a bad temper. They all die.
Oh, and you have to save the world from an old coot in a skirt with a crystal head.

If anyone gets this, you win.))
Your grandfather gets killed and you’re trying to find out why. You find this old book made of human skin and bones and start to read it. It may or may not make you insane.
Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man who introduced the world to Super Mario — died this morning of pneumonia at a hospital in Japan.
yamauchi was stone cold motherfucker who build up nintendo with his cunning business tactics and influenced video games as an entertainment industry more than any other single individual and should be acknowledged as a defining force of popular culture over the last 50 years
to put his most recognizable accomplishments bluntly
- if it werent for him nintendo would still be making childrens playing cards
- mario, donkey kong, zelda, metroid, pokemon (some of the most exemplary and influential game franchises of all time) and more wouldnt exist
- nintendo itself wouldnt even have be there to intervene in the video game crash of the mid eighties and with the NES
- and without it video game consoles would no longer exist in the western hemisphere as we know them
he was also one of the 500th richest people in the world, owned the seattle mariners baseball team and designed the iconic famicom (NES) based on the color of his favorite scarf
a million more things could be said but if youve ever played a video game period its been touched by his contributions in some form or another
and if youve ever enjoyed a video game that means hiroshi yamauchi is someone you should thank
If you follow this blog, you obviously are a fan of pokemon.
You are also an obvious fan of Nintendo.
READ THIS AND CRY NOW.
Nintendo’s games have been a life-saving grace to me in my childhood and teen years. I wouldn’t be who I am today or know some of the best people in the world without his influence. My friends and I connected over a mutual love of video games and they still remain the root of everything for us.
I’m pretty teary now from this.
It just got a sequel, oh god I am dying.
