  1. Been off my diet, and I have to say:

    I freaking missed mashed potatoes.

    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      As well you should have.

  2. It really does sound like they're going for a younger Sonic. I feel like it'd be conveyed a bit better if he sounded like it, because I can see why anyone would be annoyed by him and his antics; they sound like they're being pulled by someone older. Anyways, he looks much better. I'm genuinely considering seeing this movie now.
  3. I don't think that for the most part; they know perfectly well that people don't like the Pokemon cut and then everything else going on. I mainly name the Pokemon cut because almost everything goes back to it. The animations are reused (fine on its own) and lackluster if not, the graphics are... considerably bad in some places, and the competitive balance did not have to be achieved (if it has been, not that I would know) by banning Pokemon not in the dex from the entire region when they could restrict within a species in the past*. The frustration of these aspects is magnified by claims that all of those would get better because of the cut. They mentioned the cut near the end of their E3 thing because the viewership to their segment at Treehouse was starting to drop. I don't think Japan has even had this properly revealed to them. They know why people are are angry, they've gone out of their way to have people uninformed to lower the backlash. But you and Tornado are onto something; they're getting a lot more heat from fans than usual (arguably bigger than gens 3 and definitely 5), and because they've never been under fire like this, they're likely panicking and bungling their PR attempts. * Elaboration below
  4. Did anyone see this? Why in the world would they say that? There's a lot of audacity in asking this; if we had to pay for Pokemon Bank, I have little doubt that this will be the case for Home. That means you could be paying a subscription for years before they're available again. The use of "might" promises their absence just as much as it does their return. The wording here also makes me doubt that there's that much to do in Home. I just... really have a lot of problems with this statement.
  5. Wasn't that a rumor started by a claim by someone else on a podcast instead? As far as I've seen, it's pure speculation. Unless there's an article I missed; can you point me where Masuda mentioned this specifically? We can assume their morale is low, but we need to take other things into account like the yearly releases, their small development team, the flop of Little Town, not just BBND.
  6. I like this! It feels like Station Square, but as a stage.
  7. I went keto due to some blood work turning up fairly bad. This lead to more suspicion that I have a condition (which has been confirmed). It's not diabetes, but the condition puts me at risk. I've lost around 10 pounds so far after about a month. I can eat meat, cheese, most vegetables, certain fruits, and nuts. I'm avoiding carbs, so I can't have breads, most fruits, and really sugary things. I'm enjoying the foods I can eat on it and am trying new vegetables, or at least, trying to incorporate them into my diet some more. That said, I'm planning on staying on this diet until around October, after getting a second round of blood work and seeing if I've improved. Hopefully I will, what with taking the steps to manage it medically and the diet. I don't think I could stand the holidays if I couldn't eat most of Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, never mind the treats we usually bake at the at time. I think the thing I'm taking from this is measuring serving sizes, more vegetables and having less sugary snacks in between meals. If I can control that and count my calories, maybe I won't need to go on a full on diet.
  8. Hey, uh quick question, if I blocked someone on twitter and someone took a picture of my tweet to show them it, can I... say something (it was on my thread, the blocked person asked)?

    I don't like that. I feel like that person is disrespecting my boundaries?

    1. Polkadi~☆


      If you feel like that person is disrespecting your boundaries, what do you think is the right course of action?

    2. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      Calling them out on it; "Don't do that, I blocked them".

    3. Polkadi~☆


      If you feel like that’s the right thing to do, why not go do that?

    4. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      I was overthinking it, I think. I wasn't sure if that was twitter etiquette to do that for blocked people.

      Thanks! I'll give that a try.

    5. Failinhearts


      I think it's fine to basically take your stance. After all, you got dragged into such a mess after all. You deserve to stand up for yourself.

      Thanks-- it's not anything terrible or anything mean spirited (I'm not being bullied/poked fun at as far as I see it), I just feel like it's very inappropriate regardless of the image guy's intent. I said something, idk if anything will be said back.

  9. tfw a chinese bootleg mobile game gives more satisfactory animations to the Pokemon than their own franchise.

    1. Ruomarta


      If you look further into this, it's only actually one idle animation for each Pokémon(also the fact theirs only like 67 Pokémon).

    2. Sapphirine Wind

      They're still much better than the animations in the main series. It's a billion dollar franchise that's on top of the world. It's still embarrassing.

  10. the newest thing about the animation looks like... Hops' mouth moves. None of the animations so far have looked like they were worth Dexit. EDIT: I know I must sound like a broken record at this point, but tbh, the Pokemon are an important aspect of Pokemon to me. Everything about this feels off for me, and it's deeply troubling to me as a lifelong fan.
  11. I was once really looking forward to the game, but now that's changed. They've... kinda gone and promoted a feeling about apathy for just about every aspect of the game. A Pokemon? Well, don't get too attached, it might not appear in a new game for a while (Shinx, a fairly liked Pokemon, has shown up in only one regional Pokedex; Sinnoh, its debut region). That one mechanic? Those have been dropping like flies since before this mess. That battle gimmick? It's gonna be thrown out for something else in the next generation. Like, what's sacred now? If the Pokemon aren't, what's next? How long until certain less popular Pokemon (Simisear) are retired? It might be unthinkable, but so was this. What was the point of all that poetic waxing about how people love their Pokemon and want to take them to the new generation? The strongest system Pokemon has ever been on, and this is how they plan to kick off Pokemon's main series console debut? Not only does it not inspire confidence, it's a hype killer when you realize a lot of the Pokemon you've taken time to capture and raise are going to be fragmented across multiple games at best.
  12. I...uh... saw that trailer. The 2003 Titans look so weirdly animated, like y'all have been saying. The way they're animated just doesn't fit their designs, their expressions are wonky and the proportions between the counterparts look off. it just doesn't look good.
  13. Couldn't sleep. the only normal reaction was to assume I had a rare genetic/sporadic disease that keeps me from sleeping.

    The most obvious answer are probably; stress, didn't follow my routine, kept going to bed around 4:00 and sleeping longer than usual from the other day/yesterday fricked me up.

    EDIT: and now I have a hard time yawning????????? is it stress?????? oh well, I'll ask a doctor about this.

    1. tailsBOOM!


      Hopefully everything's okay.

    2. Sapphirine Wind

      I think it's stress/anxiety (on top of a embarrassingly bad sleep schedule and possibly too much caffeine). Things have been a little rough. I'm gonna take it a little easier and that's gonna be easier with the medication refil;l I just picked up.

      Thank you for the hope!

  14. I know this may be tiered, but it looks like everything (Pokemon, Items, moves, move-sets via level-up, etc)from gen 7 was ported into Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. Things add up even less.
  15. It was sexist because it enforced a slant in favor of males. Like, tail/whisker/hair length as well as different colorings are one thing. Those add variety within Pokemon. Giving girl Pokemon a disadvantage in attack just makes her undesirable. It's not even neutral like a gender difference, it's a flat out negative. And, like said by @Mad Convoy, Female animals can still mess you up if you provoke them. A female bear might be smaller, but she's by no means less of a threat. In fact, you should stay far away from momma bears, let alone most other mother animals.
