Azeroth Pokemon Sighting

It was Monday evening and I was running around in World of Warcraft before dinner.

I was working on jewelcrafting with my druid, Selirus.

Yes, I picked up a new trade skill. And a dangerous one too.

Well, they are all mildly dangerous. Every time I start off making things with a trade skill, I start wanting to make another alt. It plays to my weakness. I keep thinking, “If I rolled a little warrior or shaman, I could equip him really well!”

So far I have managed to keep from rolling an alt to just to use up some of the stuff I have been making.

Of course, with jewelcrafting, you have to run/sail out to The Exodar every time you need to train up.

While I was travelling out to The Exodar from Ironforge, my daughter was sitting next to me playing Pokemon and watching me travel, asking questions about things every so often.

As we entered the city, she asked about the Draenei. As I was telling her the tidbits of lore I could recall, she offered up, “Oh, they play Pokemon!”

I was taken a bit aback at this statement, and my daughter could sense doubt in the “Uhhh…” that came out of my mouth, so she added, helpfully, “There’s a PokeBall!”

I was still lost, looking around me for the PokeBall she spotted.

“On the floor! Underneath you!”

Sure enough, there I was standing in the middle of what looked remarkably like a PokeBall.


The Draenei do come from space, so presumably they have some advanced technology.

I will have to keep an eye open in The Exodar to see if I can spot a Ninetendo DS.
