Ronda Rousey geeks out over ‘Pokémon’
Ronda Rousey is the most well known female UFC fighter. Scratch that she’s one of the most well known of all UFC fighters. Despite her popularity Rousey is a ‘normal’ person inside. By this I mean she’s a huge ‘Pokémon’ geek.
In an interview with the Tommy Toe Hold Show, the ‘Rowdy’ one revealed he favorite Pokémon was Mew.
“Mew is the originator of all the other Pokémons … Mew is the original one and [all the other Pokémon] came from that one. And, you couldn’t catch Mew in the original game. You had to use the lavender town.”
Mew was indeed the first Pokémon. And you certainly can’t catch Mew in the original games, but you could catch his evil clone Mewtwo. I’m not sure what she means about ‘using the lavender town’. My Pokémon is a little rusty now. But Rousey also added:
“I actually went to the mall for those Pokémon events, those little tournaments to get me a Mew. I wanted Mew so bad. I waited in line with all the other nerds for hours. I wanted to get me a Mew, and a Mew certificate of authenticity that I taped to my wall,” Rousey was not ashamed to admit.
Rousey also admitted that she prefers ‘Mortal Kombat’ over ‘Street Fighter’ and that she’s pretty good at Candy Crush. She also played the bassoon, which is a woodwind instrument like a saxophone.
“Umm, I’m really good at Candy Crush (laughs). I don’t know if I picked up a bassoon right now, if I could play it, like read the music, but I used to play the bassoon. I was really good at bassoon. Wait! I’m really good at Taboo, the game Taboo. I [expletive] wreck it on Taboo.”
She certainly does have a lot of talents. Go and catch ’em all, Ronda!
