  1. Remember when 4kids and/or Miramax commissioned new scenes to be animated for the fourth Pokemon movie because they really, really, really wanted to drive home an insignificant story detail?

      No. Would you mind giving some specifics because not everyone here is a Pokémon anime expert?

      Sorry, I assumed it was common knowledge.

      The dub of the fourth movie went and got a bunch of new scenes animated for it because they desperately wanted the audience to know that Professor Oak and Sammy were the same person. Originally the only hint was in the credits when Tracey finds Sammy’s old sketchbook among Oak’s belongings.

      There was also an extra Team Rocket scene. For some reason.

      That's really daft. Didn't that sketchbook eventually show up in the Let's Go games as an Easter Egg?

      Oh? I don’t recall seeing that.

  2. Think this is the first time I’ve ever heard Sarah talk about Veronica Taylor.

  3. Yeah...I was expecting a big influx of game locations being confirmed. Not two comic-original places with non-descript names.
  4. Ooh. ...care to spoil them for us?
  5. Considering how popular a character Shadow is considered to be by Sega, it’s a wonder they haven’t given him another solo game.

      Honestly, it really isn't considering how the first one went down.

      Considering how we all need water to live, it's a wonder we don't just live underwater.

      • Interesting concept for diverging paths - Poorly executed.
      • Ugly enemy designs and wooden 2 dimensional antagonist.
      • Shadow's animation was weird and stretchy.
      • New human character, adds nothing.
      • Gun mechanic annoying and unneeded.
      • Chaos Control renders diverge missions moot.
      • Poor dialogue, only memorable for memes.
      • Most levels look drab and dull.
      • Have to play through the whole game again to reach new story elements.
      • Endings basically the same.
      • Secret Last ending makes alternates pointless.
      • Killing Eggman?

      But it wasn't all bad. It had one thing going for it.

      • The music.

      Naw, unless they had a totally new unique idea that would fit for Shadow that isn't guns, it would be a bad move. They still need to perfect Sonic's level design and playability before trying for Shadow.

      If only.

      Literally the best thing you can expect is a game where he has to share the spotlight with Sonic.

      And what would the story be anyway? At least with the first one, they had a story to tell, regardless how sloppy the execution was.

      Now? "Let me tell you how I, the ultimate lifeform, became just another of Sonic's many cheerleaders..."

    7. Kuzu


      You must be very fun at parties...

  6. The UK Dragon Ball theme tune was my jam tbh

    1. FReaK


      nothing beats the german version


  7. Big the Cat, of course. I love fat characters, and I have a massive soft spot for the slow or “dimwitted” types. Big is just the sweetest gentle giant who only wants to live his simple life with his best buddy. I find his section of SA1 unironically kind of relaxing to play too, and he has some really nice bits of music associated with him; not just his theme song, but his theme in Emerald Coast. I also want to give a shoutout to his characterisation in the Archie Comics.
  8. There was a Sonic promo thing on ITV just now.

    1. Stasis


      Want to see a clean upload

    2. Stasis


      Nevermind, found one haha trying to avoid thumbnails

  9. Not sure what this has to do with Archie Sonic specifically, but RIP.
  10. Fun fact: if you type certain English Pokemon names into Google Translate and translate them to Japanese, it will come up with their official Japanese name. For example:


  11. Imagine being a Japanese DBZ viewer back in the day and having to wait literal weeks for a single battle to end.

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I remember watching the original run on Cartoon Network in the UK. Freeza took months, my Mum really lost patience saying "Is he not dead yet?" after every episode 😛

  12. I wouldn’t be surprised if the annual got delayed anyway.
  13. *literal crying*

  14. Pikachu, our lucky star is shining today!

    1. Soniman


      I don't see any stars..

      Is it just me, or is it shining alot brighter than normal?






  15. Julie-Su, in these early stories, embodies the absolute worst kind of “girl power” character: the type where the aformentioned “girl power” is her only trait. The kind who just harps on and on about how she “don’t need no man” while not actually contributing anything of value to the stories she’s in. She doesn’t get much better later on either in my honest opinion. In later issues she mostly just settles into just being “Knuckles love interest”. She’s one of the few characters who not even Ian was able to make me care about. The only real positive thing I have to say about her is that I like her design.
  16. It bloody well better be. I also hope this means we’ll be getting a sudden burst of issues in a short space of time.
  17. One of the unevolved Kanto starters seems the most likely to me.
  18. It is true that it’s hard to see. Every three-issue arc in the Knuckles series has connecting covers btw.
  19. No, the first two arcs of this very comic had them too.
  20. Absolutely lost it at 1:26

  21. If I don’t eat rice, the power won’t come.

  22. Why aren’t there Funko Pop figures of Nintendo characters (besides those few Pokemon ones that nobody seems to sell)?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Because Nintendo is also in the limited edition figurine business with their Amiibo, or because they're just not interested in licensing out their characters for the world's ugliest collectable series.

  23. Is there a way to submit questions for the BumbleKast that doesn’t involve social media?
