Admittedly for the first 4 gens it's all en names since I only switched to playing in jp after the 5th gen
Pokemon too I just stick to whichever clicks more with me
I say alcremie but I also use hibunny for example
Salted cream w/ Berry was the first alcremie I had,
then a bunch of rainbow cream w/ a variety of sweets but I used the one with the Heart longest as it could gigantamax
And now its the Ruby Cream w/ Ribbon thanks to it having perfect IVs and I fed it that curry
coincidentally these three are indeed alchemies that have gone through my team with the current resident Alcremie being the Ruby Cream w/ Ribbon sweet variety
Country's just weird the same thing happened with the switch.
Gaming used to be looked down upon as a nerd hobby and now thanks to 2020 shenanigans, everyone wants a switch and many promos are like 'win a brand new Nintendo switch!'. Even the telcos are selling the switch as part of their products along with smartphones...
@RelaxingRancho I honestly have no idea why but that could be one reason... I guessed it was the appearance of some of them since a good chunk was indeed based on yokai (Japanese spirits/monsters) but well we'll never know now. Just feels really weird, growing up in a time where I had to hide everything and now every kid has some doll with them or they're playing go.
Little boys and girls who will never know what the now young adults had gone through when they were kids...
Also just a little fun fact
Pokemon was actually banned in my country when I was a little kid.
Thanks to some Christianity thing pokemon was likened to demons and thus was banned.
One day the shelves had merchandise next day everything gone
It honestly feels really surreal now that the whole country was taken by storm thanks to pokemon go and now pikachu is everywhere. From mall adverts to free gift redemptions at malls. All the kids and adults love pikachu now
Not that I do much either I just keep it around tbh
