Pokemon Go was definitely a good idea it seems. Interested to see what will happen when Super Mario Run releases.

People who think this is because of Pokemon Go are sorely mistaken. It's clearly due to Exeggutor's aloha form.

Got any numbers? Or am I missing something? A report like this falls very flat without numbers :/

Going to definitly get it, but not feeling the urge to pre-order. The demo was good, as expected though. I'm not a big fan of the anime though, so Ash-greninja didn't exactly get me teeming with excitement.
