    I can’t wait to make the perilous trek up Mount Fuji at night on foot during winter, to get my ice-themed Pokemon, which will probably be Articuno or something.

    And by trekking up Mount Fuji on foot, I mean take the cable car all the way up while tweeting that I’m on my super dangerous and tiresome pokemon journey on my iPhone 5.

    Here’s hoping everything goes well. This will be my best excuse to go out to the beach and capture some water types.

    There will be support for Latin America. Just that outside of Mexico and Puerto Rico, the only pokémon available is going to be a Bidoof.
