This is exactly what happened to me. I was scared to battle it because I didn't have any poke balls but then it said that it just joined my team and I screamed. And while This happened my dads friends were over so it just became weird
some of these are absolutely awesome, I like the idea of having a tattoo that links with my childhood. also great conversation starter! Pokemon are so well known. And if they don't know about it, it gives me an excuse to shout at them for 10 mins!
