Ah, it's great to see so many people getting into it, even if I'm still pretty new myself. xP And yeah, that's how I got into it too, through the many posts from the fandom on Tumblr. ^^;; I haven't watched the third yet, but I know what happens because I've read the LP. And oh, you're watching the walkthrough? Wouldn't you prefer to read it?
I haven't really been following the games, and I really don't care because i'm going to buy it anyway, but I do agree with you; the plot draws me in to the Pokemon series more than the graphics. That's why I'm not very fond of the latest Mystery Dungeon.
