Thanks to some of my fellow bloggers, I've recently picked up my Nintendo "New" 3DS XL again. Special credit goes to: Dragon's Tea Party and the Dragon's Nuzlocke Challenge, which gave me the Pokemon bug. I've also been experiencing a rather massive wave of nostalgia thanks to a blogging event hosted by @theWellRedMage that challenged readers …

“Which Video Game Character Would You Recruit as Your Personal Trainer?”

Thank you to LaterLevels for hosting the LaterLevels Questions of the Month blogging event, and for Kevin from The Mental Attic for asking a great question.
