I wanted to see if I could start a #ThankYouGameFreak trend. #ThankYouGamefreak for creating the games that got me through all the tough times in my childhood. I know times are rough, but there are still fans that love what you do. Spread if you appreciate what Gamefreak does.

I don’t even know where I’d start… This franchise has been a part of my entire life, with no exaggeration. I love this game, I love my job and I’ve loved every minute that I’ve dedicated to Pokemon.
Roll on Sword & Shield. 💙

People have found friends, partners, even had children all due to meeting up due the love of the series. While not everyone will be happy with every game and every decision, the love of the series is clearly there from the majority. #ThankYouGameFreak pic.twitter.com/ngz5Sh9mOA

#ThankYouGameFreak for the years of fun and enjoyment you brought to my childhood. Playing Ruby for the first time and staying up all night with my siblings and playing the games when we got Diamond and Pearl during the December month. Thanks for all the great memories & more 🙂
