Pikachu is nestling at my hip right now!
Soooo adorable. I like the battery-saving feature too, because when the battery dies, all the data is lost. I don't want that happening any sooner than absolutely necessary.
I don't imagine that there will be much to write in a log, because he doesn't grow or anything, but if he does something especially cute I will no doubt gush about it here!
I'm really excited to have a virtual pet that I can take to class with me. He doesn't need any actual caretaking so he's not too distracting, but he's there for company if the prof is being really boring.
Plus he encourages me to be active!
I was never really a Pokemon fan, but sometimes I can't help it; I look at Pikachu and think, "Pika pika!"
Right now, when I press "start", I see Pikachu's ears poking out from the bottom of the screen. The crest of a hill is curving above him, and beyond that - the night sky! Pikachu is stargazing! Aww, that is so adorable.
PS: Kat, don't worry, it wasn't as good as it might sound. There were no Aibo or Furbies or anything like that! Mostly very antique toys, model cars, Barbies, stuff like that. I found the one vpet in the whole convention.
