I was just at the store to buy some meat for dinner, where I also found one of them machines with surprise eggs in it. 10 Swedish crowns (about 1€) and I get a Pokémon. Fair deal, right?
I played Pokémon back in the days, when it was still cool and the only versions out there was Red and Blue. I got the Blue version, seeing as it is my favorite color, Blastoise was on the cover and my friend got the Red version.
I was really into it, got all the Pokémons except for Mew. I even got "Missing No.". (http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/Missingno, available 12/4/2009). By then, of course I knew of all the Pokémons. 151 at the time.
Today, I have absolutely no idea about that the youngsters are talking about. I'm 22 after all. My back is hurting, I wear glasses, I complain about taxes but I still can't grow a decent moustache! I'm old.
When I opened up my egg, while still in the store, of course I couldn't wait untill I got home, I saw this... Thing. This orangly brown thing with big teeth. I had no idea what so ever what kind of Pokémon this was! Once I got back, I asked my die-hard-Pokémon-fan what it was and apparently it's a "Bidoof", and apparently it sucks.
So there you have it, #399 in the Poké Index is Bidoof, a crappy funny looking beaver-thingy.
