They Grow Up So Fast by Nickarooski They Grow Up So Fast by Nickarooski
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!

:lol: I agree with last panel. My favorite has always been Charmander and his evolutions. I don't think sharing a bed with him would have been all that comfortable. Great for S'more's though.

sometimes i wish pokemon were real for just 1 day. To form an attatchment with your pokemon. Then your pokemon trusts you so much when you go to sleep it snuggles up against you. Then you wake up in the morning ready for a battle. I especially like the teenager one

Yeah. It's everywhere. It's annoying. I gained so many watchers from it, but NONE of them fav or comment on my pictures. They just like this one picture and move on. It's like my one hit wonder. Or my 15 minutes of fame. It sucks. lol Made me think my art was actually good for a few days. I hate the picture now.

This is real. Really. When I was little my mom bought me and my brother two really little red-eared sliders (kind of turtle) at Chinatown. We brought them home and had them for--I think two years. When they got too big, we had to donate them to the pet shop. I still kind of miss them.

At least with pokemon you can just put them in a poke ball and they can stay close to you forever.

Seeing how the blanket hangs down something, I'd say someone has got a VERY stable bedframe (unlike mine, I broke two slats by stepping in the middle of them).
In the end, I'd advise him to invest into a second bed like that so that Blastoise can sleep on it right next to him. Same comfort/closeness, less back-breakage.

I wish I had a childhood with Pokemon... :c

My mom was really ultra religious and wouldn't let me and my sister watch or play it after she heard the word "evolve" mentioned on the anime. I literally only got into Pokemon a year and a half ago, and it makes me so sad to hear so many people have all these memories, and I feel like the odd one out. :c

Feels bad, man...

Geeze, that's messed up. D: I know a few people in your shoes actually. One of the people who commented this said that Pokemon was banned from his country, so he couldn't enjoy it. Well, I hope you're making awesome memories now! haha It wasn't till like last year or so that my parents have officially supported my addiction.
