I was playing PokeMMO and didn’t feel like training my caterpie so i told my youngest brother (age 13) to do it for me. He goes and asks me “Which one’s caterpie?” and that’s when it dawned on me…
My brother doesn’t know Pokemon.
He’s never played the games and he didn’t grow up with the anime. His knowledge of Pokemon is made up entirely of a Super Smash Bros. roster.
And it’s all my fault. I never pushed him to experience the gameboy games. Perhaps it’s too late because he didn’t enjoy training my caterpie.
