    Can’t wait for this years Pokemon movie

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      The Pokémon 2020 movie is called Coco or something like that in Japan.

    3. Crow the BOOLET
  2. How come whenever LEGO picks up the licenses to franchises that I would genuinely, avidly collect LEGO sets of, they only use it for a one-off thing and never touch it again?

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      It's usually based on what the licence holder wants. A big chunk of the non Marvel/DC/Star Wars sets are only done through LEGO Ideas, and LEGO Dimensions was a whole different beast. 

  3. Is movie!Robotnik still called Robotnik in the Japanese version?

  4. Youtube has made it so COPPA’d videos cannot be added to playlists...

    1. Solister

      Solister

      Still impressed there's no video service up to face YT as a such weak platform. Come on, any video player on web with a few more features is better than YT in every way.

    2. Milo

      @Solister The general argument that's usually given is that it would cost way too much infrastructure to get a video-sharing site on the same level of YouTube up and running; and even if someone pulled it off, they would be subject to the same restrictions/subjugations YouTube is already under, COPPA included.

      The closest competitors (DailyMotion, Vimeo) dwarf YouTube in size and popularity and usually don't have all of the features YouTube has (i.e. Vimeo having storage limits for free accounts, and only having expanded/unlimited storage with paid accounts). Some aren't even able to last long and get shuttered a few years later (such as Vid.Me); even if they are trying to do a different concept (Vine, although it was technically succeeded by tiktok and the creator of vine has been talking about getting a sequel site up and running).

  5. Merlin’s house can be found out of bounds in Data Greeting’s Radiant Garden map.

    What is even the point?

      Magic?

      Magic!

  6. I am now 99% certain Ash is going to go into episode 12 not knowing who the hell Lance is.

    1. Grim & Gritty CC14

      Grim & Gritty CC14

      Probably means we can also pour one out for Lance's brief career as a Pokemon G-Man. (Speaking of, MAN did the supposed government DROP THE BALL and not give a SINGLE damn post-Hoenn. 😆)

  7. I checked the Kingdom Hearts subreddit per reommendation and I now absolutely understand why Disney characters were left out of Data Greeting mode...

  8. Apparently Ash acts as if he’s never met a Dragonite before in the new episode ಠ_ಠ

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Nothing new, he had this behavior since the Black/White seasons if not even earlier.

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      I mean, they can't expect kids to watch 1000 episodes so

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Ferno what does that have to do with anything?

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      He met Dragonite(s) in the early seasons right? Like around Indigo League/ Orange Islands? That was way back is all I'm saying so it would kinda make sense to reintroduce it as if it were new for new viewers

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Ferno why though? The younger crowd go into the show knowing full well that Ash has travelled a lot (the second episode of this series makes that apparent enough) making it logical to assume he would’ve seen a Dragonite at least once during that time. And even if it hadn’t, why would a kid even think to question it? Ash has recognised just about every other pre-Gen VIII Pokemon in this series so far with no problems.

      The anime writers had absolutely nothing to gain from doing this.

    6. Ferno

      Ferno

      That's fair yeah

    7. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      @Ferno Narrative 101: that's what flashbacks are for, it literally could have take the span of 10-20 seconds by having a small clip of an episode where Ash had met a Dragonite and then back to the present with him saying "yeah, i remember seeing them in the past", even without having to be specific about it.

       

      If they wanted to have a case of having each new season being a fresh start they should have done like the games and have different protagonists for each with their own set of supporting characters; making your recurring protagonist dumb and ignoring continuity for the sake of not alienating newcomers (on top of the other problems the show has been suffering for a while now) is a hard thing for me to justify.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Or they could’ve just removed the implication altogther. The line in question is “Dragonite, huh? I’d like to meet one!”

      They could’ve just had him say the first half and leave it there, not explicitely indicating one way or the other if he’s ever seen one before.

  9. *finishes Doctor Who*
    ...what the fuck just happened

    1. The Master

      The Master

      The rules of regeneration have been rewritten again as far as I can see.

    2. Joy

      Joy

      Very hype episode but there's definitely a lot of setting up for later here which might affect how people look back on it in retrospect once we have the pay-offs. I did like the initial small scale idea of the Judoon surrounding the flat and the Doctor having to talk with two equally believably innocent people to solve a mystery before the Judoon kills both. Would've been cool to have an entire episode of that.

      Spoiler

      I'm curious to see where they go with this Ruth-Doctor revelation. I'm personally thinking the alternate-universe Master theory is true and this Doctor is from there as well.

      I'd rather she's not retroactively revealed to be pre-Hartnell or anything. They managed the secret incarnation once with John Hurt but I think it's gonna feel really forced if they try it again.

       

    3. Big Panda

      @Joy

      I never heard this theory.

    4. Joy

      @Big Panda

      Spoiler

      From what I understand. The light creatures from Spyfall come from another universe, and because the Master is directly tied with them there's speculation he used them to get to this universe (reasons unknown).

       

  10. Reaction: a Kingdom Hearts title that is a completely independent entity that has nothing to do with the main sagas. Its only connections are thematic similarities and, of course, Disney characters. Kind of like what all the main FF entries are to each other.

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      yes please

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Yes please but the entire series like that

  11. There are things that never fail to pull my heartstrings to shreds.

    Big doggos nurturing tiny kittens is one of those things.

  12. Issue 40 of the Sonic X comic established that Metal Sonic never existed in this continuity and I still find that a little hard to believe.

    1. Celestia

      Celestia

      I thought it made sense because it'd be very strange if Metal Sonic was a thing in the X universe but Eggman never used him for some reason. Like, surely there's plenty of times where Metal would have come in handy.

    2. Soniman

      Soniman

      X Eggman could've simply never thought of it yet. I don't think any of the history between him and Sonic adapted the series (minus broad strokes) directly until SA1

  13. I genuinely don’t understand why it’s considered cheating to count cards in a casino.

    If it’s a physical skill people have, why shouldn’t they be allowed to use it? That’s like saying it’s cheating to have a crazy-good memory when playing a memory game.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      It's because the casinos don't want people to be good at it since they make less money. 

      Basically scumbags being scumbags. 

    2. Tarnish

      Tarnish

      Because they want "The house always wins".

  14. It’s great that nearly all of the KH series can now be played on a single platform. All we need now is a console remake of Union X and it’s all-

    “Our next title will be a mobile game”

    ...god dammit Nomura.

      You expecting them to improve on this was your first mistake sonny.

  17. If you have a reaction image folder:

    first saved vs most recently saved

      Bit triicky for me since i have sub-folders tied to their sources in case are too many.
       

      -yes, i have something like 500+ reaction images stored on my PC-

       

      Still, here's an aproximation:

  18. CAN’T HE EVEN FOLLOW A SIMPLE INSTRUCTION?

  19. Really wasn’t expecting Yozora’s voice actor to be

    Dylan Sprouse

  20. If you’ve ever wondered what the English Pokemon logo would look like in the style of one the Japanese ones

  21. Are the limit cut bosses part of the free story update or Remind?

    1. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      They’re part of Re:Mind.

  22. >people, mainly sub fans, are calling the English logo of MSBE “ugly”

    ...it’s literally the Japanese logo in English (except for the back-lighting and the “Evolution”)

      I don't know what logos you're looking at, but the two are completely different. They have the same colour scheme, but that's where the similarities end. No opinions on which is better here. It's just... They're totally different from one another.
       

    2. Rabid-Coot

      Rabid-Coot

      English version wouldn't look out of place on a fan site 20 years ago.

    3. Big Panda

      It looks better on the poster

      M22_key_art.png
       

      Really do think it just looks like the Japanese logo but in English.

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      tbh I think the movie title looks fine

      It's the 90s Pokémon brand logo that needs to change.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The English Pokémon logo makes everything look bad.

  23. I wish Youtube would let you blacklist certain types of videos from popping up in your recommended.

    No Youtube, I don’t want to watch “Family Guy Funny Moments Compilation #14542”, fuck off.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The best you can do is select not interested, and you might then be asked to choose why. I wish I could just outright block certain channels or topics.

      When I watch YouTube on my Fire Stick, there's always a "Spotlight on <subject>" section under recommended. And it's not changed in months despite the fact that I never watch those videos. The subjects it constantly spotlights are "Satoru Iwata, Remebered" and "Man at Arms". I don't get it. It's crazy annoying. And then there's just the general "Oh you watched some gaming videos, so here's 6000 PewDiePie videos". Urgh

      I do click “not interested”, but it’s never asked me why.

    3. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Get a channel blocker extension for your browser and make a list.  Works just fine for me.

  24. In his review of the Monsters vs Aliens TV series, Mr Enter criticises it for having poor continuity with the movie.

    The movie he’s admitted to never having seen and only got the general gist of through reading a summery.

    Bruh.

  25. Little bit of trivia in relation to the latest news:

    Kōichi Yamadera, Robotnik’s Japanese voice actor in the movie, is essentially the “official” Japanese voiceover for Jim Carrey, having dubbed him in a large selection of his movies before.

    1. Jango

      Jango

      I think they usually do that in every country. Although the brazilian VA for Sonic in the movie is the same as every cartoon, from AoStH to Boom. I don't know who voices Ben Schwartz here.
