In Pokemon breaks , your map reveals Pokemon that are in the region, together with a distance. But, it does not show precisely where they are in what way you want to go find them. (Does not that seem like searching for ancestors?)
Let us say that there is a Pikachu that’s”two steps” off and you begin walking east. After awhile, that Pikachu has become”3 steps” away. Oops, we moved the incorrect path; we will need to flip around and return. (Does not that seem like functioning through DNA matches?)
You need to throw the Poke ball to grab the Pokemon and you also do not always get it the first attempt. There are times that you miss and at times the Pokemon breaks out… in order to try again. (Does not that seem like locating a listing but it does not include exactly what you hoped for?)
I am not saying that Pokemon is a scholarly pursuit like genealogy is. (I’ll say that the first game back in the 1990s and early 2000s helped millions of young individuals know somewhat about the concepts of mathematics and mathematics by studying the various strengths that every Pokemon had.)
What I am saying is that it may be more enjoyable than you believe. And does not that seem like the response we give individuals who do not”get” why people do ?
