Say what you will about these two games, I think they were both rather charming in their own way. Most notably, your partner, Pikachu/Eevee! During our travels, they do some rather cute stuff upon certain moments, and they even bond with us during tough, or easygoing times! For example, I remember when we first met them; they instantly liked us, and we bonded with them rather quickly! When we arrived in the pokemon league, they gave us a cheerful, confident look, as we replied to them, "Let's do this, partner!" as we began the challenge.
For you, what were the most memorable or cute moments with your partner pokemon during these games? How has it impacted you?
