Q-Mail: 2 B A Master?

Dear Glow Cloud,

Is the release of 2nd Generation Pokémon in Pokémon Go getting you to play again?

Sincerely,

Budding Pokémon Master


Dear Novice,

Asking if I will, or am, playing again insinuates that I did, at one point, play. Play, I did not. It should be well known by now that my favourite pass-time is to lurk and read the minds of “innocent” passers by.

I will note, however, that the mind of a person engulfed in such trivialities as a phone game is much easier to penetrate and control than that of someone less occupied. So everyone else should keep playing.

All Hail,

Almighty Glow Cloud
