Apparently, Edmonton started as an outpost for fur traders…? Sure. But why trade fur? Because the pioneers had a complicated, Pokemon-style game they would play for days at a time called “Give Me All Your Damn Pelts Or I’ll Stab You In The Eye With This Crude Knife I Made Out Of A Chunk Of Obsidian.” Hours of fun for the one-eyed kids!
Today, Edmonton is home to a mall. It’s a pretty big mall. Mall!
The general Edmonton metropolitan area has approximately one million residents who apparently don’t know about other, warmer cities with actual Pokemon cards and competent eye surgeons. Who’s going to tell them?
