Summer is here and while the weather is hot and the skies are clear, there are times when Pokemon trainers can feel a bit down on themselves.
Some Pokemon trainers have a bad day while others are constantly fighting a battle – or multiple battles on one front.
Playing Pokemon or going outside for some Pokemon Go is a good way to help get your mind off your troubles. One thing I like to do in rough circumstances is take out my journal and write down some inspirational quotes and proverbs and reflect on them later.
Like many fandoms, Pokemon has its fair share of inspirational quotes that can help give trainers an extra boost they need to get through the day. Here are few nuggets of Pokemon wisdom.
"“Everybody makes a wrong turn once in a while” – Ash Ketchum"
Life is rough and every once in a while we make a mistake. Most of the time we don’t know when we make a bad call. Sometimes we take the wrong turn on purpose just to be curious and see where the road takes us, and we don’t know it was the “wrong turn” until it was too late.
Regardless of the reason, we should never dwell, but rather we should learn from it and continue our journey.
"“Make your wonderful dream a reality, it will become your truth. If anyone can, it’s you.” – N"
This is one of my favorite quotes. Everyone has a dream, a passion that drives them and brings out their best. There might be limitations on us sometimes, but we have the power to make our dreams come true.
You can do anything you set your mind to. There is doubt and fear of failure, and you can acknowledge it – but don’t let it stop you.
"“I see now that one’s birth is irrelevant. It’s what you do that determines who you are.” – Mewtwo"
This is probably the most famous quote from Pokemon lore. Everyone comes from different walks of life and while your situation as a child can have an affect on your upbringing, you have the power to change your life for the better.
What you do with what you have matters.
I know there are tons of more great Pokemon quotes out there. These are a few select nuggets, and there are a plethora of others scattered throughout the Internet.
