Around three or four years ago, our local Farmfoods - now bust - sold Kinder Surprise eggs for a few weeks. The surprise was a super amazing Pokémon pencil topper. Seeing as there were twenty different ones and we got ten, not counting repeats, I think we did pretty well. I don't even want to know how many eggs we bought in total, but every time we went to town in that time, we bought about four.

Though I've picked grass-type starters before, I really forgot how hard the beginning of the game is with just a Snivy. The abundance of bugs and birds who would just love a tasty chunk of my poor Snivellus makes for a very stressful time. It's all good now because I have a Darumaka to incinerate anything Snivellus can't handle.
The newest addition to my permaparty is the hard-caught Solosis I mentioned earlier. I'm used to having a psychic Pokémon around, and when I finally caught a quiet one, I had to call it Mayushii. My Darumaka is obviously called Daru. Both Pokémon are of opposite gender to their namesakes, but Steins;Gate is no stranger to gender-bending.
Cel very kindly found me a Feebas in his game, though it was a little overlevelled for me (fifty-two. Fifty-flipping-two.) so he made me an egg. One day I am going to have a beautiful snakey tanky Milotic! Isn't Pokémon exciting!?!
