  1. It's kinda wild that people act like GameFreak's the doormat to The Pokemon Company.

  2. The reason why I like Colress is that he just hates Ghetsis so much.

    Like 1; same, and 2; why?

    I get that Ghetsis is a huge piece of crap. Monumental. Possibly the worst. But why does Colress hate him?

    Remember, Colress is the same character who pretty much abused Kyurem and used them to freeze a city... just for science. Even if he's "better" now, keep in mind, this man had no issue with doing something "without conscience" for his own pursuits.

    Ghetsis more or less gave him a grant, and would not have cared that Colress had more cold methods. Arguably, Colress had freedom to conduct his research just the way he wanted to, unlike (and I'm gonna guess) everywhere else.

    So like, considering that, what in the world did Ghetsis do to earn Colress' hatred? That made Colress aid the trainer sabotaging Neo Plasma, to the point of giving them a Master Ball that Ghetsis owned, to the point that he even wanted to visibly let a different Ghetsis know that he was the one sending him back to his dimension (Hell).

    I know it may not be as huge as I headcanon it (it's spawned a life of its own for me at this point), but still, I want to know how Ghetsis lost what should have been, by description, a great ally for him.

  3. For the love of god, if you like sweet grapes, go to a grocery store and look for moon drop grapes. They're long, plump grapes that are black; they'll easily catch your eye and if you see a box labeled "moon drop grapes" and they're boring old round grapes, you are being bamboozled.

    But seriously, go get them, they're grapes with little if any sourness/tartness, and it's everything I want from a grape.

      I've always heard they taste like cotton candy, but I've never tried them before. Aren't they, like, super-expensive?

      These are different from cotton candy grapes; these ones taste really sweet and look very different.

      They are made by the same grower, though! And I don't think the moon drops were very expensive, but I can't recall the price, it might depend on the retailer. They have a function where you can click on your state to find retailers that sell them, though it may not be totally accurate; I went to two unlisted stores and saw them there.

  4. Did Stadium just come back? Jeeze, that was kinda odd.

  5. Dreams are powerful things. You just accept the weird crap that happens in it and give zero questions why it's happening other than acknowledging it as though it actually is.

    Like, just recently I was like "Holy crap, why did no one tell me we had a Sonic and Digimon Tamers cross over??" as I watched it unfold. Like it was a real thing that existed.

    But it did not. Alas, it was a dream.

      I read about how the logical thinking of your brain shuts down during sleep, because you can't sleep if you're constantly thinking. As a result, your brain literally stops making sense, and your dreams can get pretty bizarre as a result, with you just rolling with it because you lack the capability to realise the dream is bizarre.

      That explains so many things about dreams in general!

      And why you probably wake up when you actually realize what you're dreaming about...

      @The Deleter

      If your logical thinking wakes up, your body recognises that you're awake. While you go through the process of waking up, you'll be fully aware of your dream.

      It's not so much that you wake up when you realise how weird your dream is, but you become aware of your dream WHILE you wake up.

      Sleep is weird.

      *Looks up a paper on the subject of Autism and dreams*

      "Questionnaires revealed that participants with ASD, compared to controls, had fewer recollections of dreaming, fewer bad dreams and fewer emotions."

      Well clearly they never consulted me on the matter.

      I was I could remember more of what I was dreaming about. I wake up and just immediatly start focusing on my daily routines.

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

    I freaking missed mashed potatoes.

      As well you should have.

  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    6. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      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.

  11. 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

      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.

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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

      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!
