“Nadine was my classmate in elem. She sold me kisses, ‘yung parang sago? She told me those things would grow — they would actually turn to actual Pokémon. I still bought them because I was a Pokémon fan. Nadine! Those kisses never turned into Blastoise,” the netizen wrote.

Despite the incident, the netizen assured that all is well between him and Nadine. “I’ve lost contact with her since I left the school we were [in] together, but she was a great friend growing up. Mas kalaro niya kaming boys.”

Adding in jest, he stated: “Would love to see her in person after so many years pero feeling ko malabo na ‘yun. At malabo ko na sa siya masingil dun sa kisses. Hahaha.”

Nadine, for her part, explained that she didn’t know what the “kisses” actually were when she bought it. As it turns out, the seller in Divisoria tricked her into believing that it was indeed a Pokémon. It was only in sixth grade when she found out that the aroma beads were made of candle wax.

“In my defense...The ates in divisoria who sold it to told me they were Pokemon. Found out in grade 6 that they were of candle wax. Good to know I’m not the only one who was scammed by this,” she said.
