Yeah, I missed that boat too. I don't have the patience for that kind of game unfortunately and turn-based strategy frustrates me.

I sometimes wonder if they'll ever make a game where you have to capture and collect all the best Pokemon players around the world and then make them fight each other.

I never got into a Pokemon game. But, I think I would enjoy watching one of these world-class events. I wonder if I'll be able to stream a bit on line so I can check it out.
