This is a rewrite of my shitty intro.
I get this question a lot, specially when people ask for my name. Being mostly an internet dweller, I always just choose to call myself Gengar at almost every site or game I end up in. Somehow, I don't find the name odd as most normal people do. It has a nice ring to it.
Of course, someone always manages to come along and yell at me at how Haunter is just better. While I do like the other two, I can't really "click" with them as much as I do with Gengar. Just remember that: There is no Gengar without Gastly or Haunter.
You can't have the ghost chicken without the ghost egg! So I am thankful for them.
From a collector's point of view, I also don't find myself interested in the merchandise of the other two at all.
When people ask for my name in person, it's also Gengar. Yeah, I get weird stares and the occasional "Excuse me?".
Gengar has been there ever since I was a kid and he was my first Pokemon, given to me by my grandfather. Wait, what? How can that be possible?
My grandfather was a very important man throughout my life and he found an old Gengar plush when I was a kid and gave it to me!
This plush to be exact, but it's not the same one I had when I was younger:
That's when this all started. If Pokemon were real, I would've had an OP Gengar from the start. I would have been a very lucky kid.( But I ramble...Collapse )
Up until recently, I always wondered what became of my lost Gengar. I had decided to never replace him, except for that tagged one I have now as a collection piece. Even if I got another one, it wouldn't be the same and he wouldn't hold the same sentimental value.
At the time of writing this, about a month ago, I saw an old Hasbro Gengar on Ebay. I usually just skip through these because I already have one and they're quite common. But man, this one was somehow different. For one, it wasn't overpriced; he was extremely cheap but nobody rushed to grab him even after a few days. Most remarkably, he put a smile on my face; all my Gengar make me extremely happy but this one was more of a nostalgic happiness I didn't quite feel before.
I felt I had to have him but was I broke at that exact time, so I sent an offer. The seller even accepted my low offer almost immediately, as if they just wanted him gone.
Now I have a small Gengar buddy again! Now to never lose him. EVER.
Who is this crazy fool? I'm just a brutally honest comical asshole who really likes Pokemon and videa. I also like ghosts and the unexplained, as in REAL 2spooky ghosts. I research everything because knowledge is power. I bore easily and I'm hard to keep content.
My favorite food is coconuts. I like coconut everything. I'm a tropical Gengar and despise cold weather.And just remember: Die now, live later.
