As I wandered around Frisco last week searching for my next sculpture to paint for the #MMSProject52, I ran across groups of people all focused on their phones but walking around foolishly. Then it dawned on me what it was…POKEMON GO…they were looking for SQUIRTELS, BULBASAURS, CHARMANDERS and maybe even a BUNEARY!
What’s all this fuss about POKEMON? And what is a BUNEARY or a LOPUNNY?
WELL, according to Wikipedia…BUNEARY is a small, bipedal, rabbit-like Pokémon with brown ears that can curl up. It has two types of fur covering its body: a light tan fleece that covers much of its lower body, feet, and the tips of its ears, and a smooth chocolate colored pelt on the upper half of its body. If it senses danger, it perks up both ears. It can deliver powerful blows with its curled up ears, and it has an impressive jumping ability.
A LOPUNNY, known as the Rabbit Pokémon, is the evolved form of Buneary. It evolves from Buneary when leveled up with high happiness. Lopunny are extremely cautious, and cloak their body with their fluffy ear fur when they sense danger.
Hey, I painted three here from the outdoor gardens at #HallPark…do I get extra points, #PokemonGo ???
