    Another Zubat, fucking really?

    1. When you get excited to use your home Wi-Fi to play, but you realise you live in A DARK ABYSS.

    When is it not a Zubat, honestly.

    4. Or a god damn Rattata there to ruin your life.

    5. When a good Pokémon finally pops up, and you have no more Poké Balls because you wasted them all on the shitty commons.
