Wow it's been that long? hopefully if Devito voices Detective Pikachu, I'll be looking forward to 20 more great years :D
I traded Pikachu from pokemon yellow to my pokemon blue just so I could evolve him into Raichu and send him back.
I had to look back at your '20 years' claim and math it against my age to see if it seemed real.
I think there's a bunch of people who've had pokemon exist their entire lives. I hate being in my 30s.
