Arr! Its Cocémon, the squshy (sic) Pokémon! I know next to
nothing about Pokémon cards, but somehow I doubt this squat, blanket-toting
monster is part of the official canon. Some kid must have made her up,
and I think thats great. You get the pleasure of playing a popular
game without buying all those cards. Speaking as someone who used to cut
arm and neck holes into old tube socks for Barbie dresses, I know how
much easier it is sometimes to make the stuff you want than to get your
parents to buy it for you.
Supersonic smack 1 hit K.O. sounds pretty tough. I don't know about Sqush a cheekie, though.
The use of multi-colored bits of foil is nice, but heres the absolute best part of all: I found it tucked in its own protective plastic sleeve, the sort used on collectible cards. All right!
