Well. I did it. My New Years Resolution last year was to gain one hundred pounds in my Pokemon form, and I did it. So, I'm happy about that. I just got weighed at the Pokemon center. I even beat my goal by ten pounds.

I think this year my resolution should be another hundred pounds. That would be good. And maybe to sleep a little bit less. I tried coffee today - It's actually kind of tasty with a lot of sugar and some whipped cream and some cinnamon on it.

[He's looking a little drained and sounding a little less enthusiastic than normal. Feel free to poke him or stop in for a visit. Once done with the video he will be watering plants. Like. For hours.]

Alright, good. You can join me in the pool.

::Max, it is December. Why are you still swimming. This is crazy.::

I can't talk when I'm swimmin' and it'd be borin' for you to just watch a guy swim for like an hour.

I wouldn't mind. I'm pretty patient. But OK - we can swim together. It will be fun! I know Vinnie didn't much care to swim, and I bet especially now that it's so cold.

Hey. Um. Can I ask you something?

Time for icons drawn by me

Bring your trunks. Or, uh, I probably got some Orange Star ones that'd fit you if you ain't got any.

Sure. Go ahead.

I have some just regular shorts that I've worn swimming before.

Well... You're Vinnie's boss. So. He probably had to tell you about why he went wherever it is he went, right? I see that on TV. People have to 'call out'. I was wondering if he said anything to you about why he had to go? Because I guess I'm kind of a little bit confused about it.

Oh, that.

Vinnie said somethin' about how he don't know what he is anymore, 'cause he's a wild pokemon, but I told him he wasn't a wild pokemon anymore and he knows he ain't 'cause he left you a note instead of just totally runnin' off and whatever and he's got a trainer.

He said he was all confused about who he was and he had to figure it out by himself in the woods bein' a venusaur. I told him he was a lunkhead, but he still ran off to go figure his head out.


Well. He was wild. See, most Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur you'd ever meet were born in a Professor's care. Usually Professor Oak, I think. But he wasn't.

Is it really that hard for him to know who he is? What does that even MEAN? You can look in a mirror and see who you are. And if that isn't enough then you could ask your family who you are. I could tell him who he is. It's easy. But he doesn't ask me things like that because I think he doesn't want to make me worry. Which is silly because leaving like that makes me worry a lot.

Yeah, I told him he was bein' an idiot for goin' off on his own and thinkin' he had to run off into the forest to go find himself. If he can't work out his problems where is is now, he ain't gonna work them out any better anywhere else. Dollars to donuts he comes back and realizes the entire problem was he thought there was a problem in the first place.

He's probably goin' back to that garden place or wherever where he went the last time when his shorts were in a twist.

Hey, did you used to be a wild pokemon?


I think problems are easier to solve when you have help so I don't understand why he runs away to places where we're not there to help. I don't always talk about my problems if I have them because I like to think I can figure them out on my own. But if it's a really big problem and I'm unsure of myself, then I'll ask for help. You shouldn't be afraid to ask for help from your family. That's what we're for.

I was! I was born in the mountains in Kanto. I was born a Snorlax - I was never a Munchlax like a lot of trainer-bred Snorlaxes were when they were born. I was already mostly grown up when Red caught me.


Yeah, well, I told him to just deal with it but he still had to run off to be by his lonesome. So, there he is. In the forest somewhere. Eatin' bark and sunshine and covered in dirt. All by himself. 'Cause he has a problem with who he is 'cause he's dumb.

Well then, yeah. Why the heck can't YOU talk with him about bein' a wild and trained pokemon at the same time? Instead of runnin' off into the woods?


I don't think he's dumb. I just miss him.

Because he didn't ask me? I would of talked to him about it but he doesn't tell me about the things he's worried about. I just know he's sad and I try to cheer him up the best ways I know how and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I guess..... also? I don't feel like a wild Pokemon anymore. I'm Red's Snorlax, now. That old me who didn't really have a name and just ate and slept by himself and scared away other Pokemon because he was big and would get angry if someone woke him up or took his food.... that just feels like SUCH a different person. I like being around people and I like having a family. I like doritos and pillows and buffets and going on tank rides and watching cartoons. Those aren't things for wild Snorlaxes.


Yeah and he likes potted plants and pot Hawaiian shirts and videogames and that oar and beards and tattoos. He ain't wild anymore and I told him that but he said that he don't know how to deal with bein' who he used to be and who he is now.

I chewed him out the last time he did this, 'cause he didn't tell me until like two minutes before he left. This time I had like, a day.


I don't know why that's hard for him. Sure, I feel like a different guy? But that's GOOD. I'm BETTER than I was before. My life is great and I have so much to be thankful for now that I'm not wild. I don't have anything against being wild, but I'd hate to go back to just being by myself and eating bamboo and pine needles.

A whole day? I went to sleep and when I woke up I had a note behind my ear.


Sonny, you sleep for, like, eighteen hours in a stretch. That's pretty much a whole day.


Yeah... I know...

That's why I'm gonna start drinking coffee. I'm not gonna sleep that much any more.


Sure that's healthy for you? Ain't you some sorta sleep-pokeman thing?
