Oh nice, when I was a kid I always wanted a Growlithe as my first pokemon.
My dad gave me a Snorlax instead. Well he was the guy who woke and relocated them, when one of them blocked the street again.
When you are a energetic kid and the only thing your pokemon does is sleep and sometimes wander to the applefields to eat, you get bored really quickly.
Also the other kids won't battle with me, because my Snorlax just slept and when he woke up annoyed, he just gave my classmates pokemon a small nudge and KOed them.
But one day that Snorlax saved my life from a angry Onix. Since then we are best friends. (USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)
