I got stabbed in the heart while playing it at 2am in my city.

Good thing my heart is made of stone.

..apparently there are some at our Consistory Headquarters in NJ. 

The office workers were posting how people have been driving up to the church this week.
They were going to use as an opportunity to educate the visitors on Orthodoxy...but, they never get out of their cars...just drive up, stops a few seconds and zoom off.

I downloaded the game to check it out, but I live in a canyon and work in a sparsely populated area, so the game doesn't offer a lot of opportunities for me.

No.  I was hoping that would be explained along the way.

Call me a hipster, but I'm not a big fan of the last two generations of Pokemon, too much theme and detail, they almost look like Digimon or Yu-Gi-Oh monsters. Too much hurry and not enough creativity, so each generation is slightly inferior to the last one. Still Pokemon, however.

The V was indeed disappointing (however many of them was great gamewisely) but I liked the designs of VI. The only contact with the latter I had only via Pokemon Showdown.

I couldn't say they loose creativity either. IV had better designs than III and II for me for example.

I was never really into it.  My sister was, but she got tired of it quickly.  My cousin also was a big fan, both of pokemon and something else, one of the other two you mentioned.

The only time I had to deal with pokemon was in Super Smash Brothers...that was fun.

I love you.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
