Pokemon Go Buddy Adventure Feature Commercial Has Me Genuinely Not Ok

And THIS is how you grab people from an ad. You tug on the heart strings of the people playing your game. You make the grown up who obsessed over Pokemon as a youngin’ relive those days and think of the bond they had with their Pokemon. The countless games you played, the hours you spent training them, the stuffed animals you got on Christmas. You make them think about having their children follow in their footsteps and being able to talk about Pokemon as they grow up. That is how you get downloads. That is how you make your coin. You could charge me $100 after this ad to get a Buddy in Pokemon GO and I wouldn’t bat an eye entering my credit card info. This is the most adorable shit I’ve ever seen. I’m not crying, my eyes are just sweating profusely.
