Welcome to the World of Pokémon!
Pocket Monsters, better known as Pokémon, is a Japanese multimedia franchise and worldwide sensation. Satoshi Tajiri, inspired by his experiences with collecting bugs in his backyard, dreamed up the world of Pokémon; a world bustling with fantastical monsters you can befriend, collect, trade, battle, and keep in your pocket. Ever since its first release in the 90s, Pokémon has become a staple of pop culture across the world.
For me, Pokémon is one of my favorite interests and game series. Ever since I was a little kid, I've LOVED Pokémon. And I still do as an adult! There is something so magical about the idea of having fantastical monsters be your partners on a journey. It inspires my creative whimsy in a special way that is hard to put into words. Pokémon has always been a source of joy and comfort for me, and this shrine is my way of expressing love and gratitude for it. ♥ So with that being said, enjoy!!
