Trip down Future Memory Lane


As you might know, one of my guilty pleasures is Pokémon. I’ve grown up following that franchise and it shows no signs of stopping now.

Last year the games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were released. They are a remake of the Gameboy Advance Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire games. They showcased the Hoenn region, and I won’t bore you with the details.

This is the point of this post. I’ve played Pokémon Emerald more times than I can count, and more importantly, I’ve enjoyed the games immensely. But, as stated in previous blog posts, the music is smply one of the best pieces I’ve ever heard, and for a music connoisseur (cough), that’s saying much.

So, I went to YouTube and found there was a channel that had the music of the new games. I was IMMEDIATELY struck with nostalgia, but also a sense of flashforward, so to speak. I was listening to the songs on YouTube and I was almost remembering myself of when I was playing the new games, which I do not have at this moment in time.

Is there a sciencey name for this phenomenon?

Thank you, and good night.
