Pokémon was honestly years ahead of it's time by not only inventing cloud storage but also noting that it's just someone else's computer.

@kalium also wow, Pokémon's model of personal computing was pretty idyllic, that you'd have a personal computer with a public IP you could log into from any terminal, and also log into your account on your friend's computers and use the stuff they had made.

@kalium The next Pokemon game should have a privatized Pokemon health care system where it will cost thousands to heal your Pokemon
