No Shame November: Hardening my Metapod

Well, November is upon us, and we here at The Game Fanatics would like to celebrate by revealing to our readers our deepest and darkest gamer confessions; No Shame November.


Pokemon: Red and Blue was one of the first games I remember playing on my GameBoy, most likely because it ate up a huge percentage of my childhood. I’m not here to confess how many times I locked myself in the bathroom trying to beat gym leaders, or what I put myself through to get certain Pokemon to evolve. I do however have a confession about how I handled my Pokemon, one in particular.

My beloved Metapod.

I had a high level Metapod that I never allowed evolve. I named it “Penis” and it was my first Pokemon in the roster, and the first move it did in every battle was harden.

The mind of a pre-adolescent kid, right?!
