Pokemon. My childhood.
Also, a part of my teenage life.
And now that I think of it, much of my young adulthood.
Hyde (my Blastoise) has been with me from the get-go. From the time that Pokemon was first advertised in Nickelodeon magazine and Blastoise was one of the few listed within its pages (two others were Pikachu and Snorlax), he has always been my favorite. I can't believe how long it has been in my life as well as everyone else that has enjoyed it. Screw the king. Long live Pokemon!
This idea made me LOL. So I had to draw it.
Grow Up could also be switched with Level Up or Evolve, but I wanted to make the connection with myself as well. Enjoy!
