      "I'm not even sure what this thing is, and I'm scared to load it on my Switch. My Switch broke, so I borrowed my husband's old one, and this was already on it because he likes to tinker around with stuff. It's Pokemon, and sort of fun, but it's kind of weird how it plays. It doesn't act like the other Pokemon I've gamed with. And the darn thing kept locking up sometimes. When I'd check the tasks with a gizmo program my husband has on it, Eevee would be overwhelming all the memory. Killing that task would fix things, but when I'd start it back up later, another lock up. Beware and be warned."
