      In the future, if you make any changes to analyses that differ from what checks detail, can you tag the person who checked it so we can look over the few different sentences? helps a lot

        It's Asuka from Evangelion with an Eyehategod shirt. Good anime. Good band. The contrast between a cute little girl and such a raw angry sound amused me. But she's sad and angry a lot, so the music suits her.

        In regards to T-tar, yeah, it had a bunch of Pheromosa mentions, which was the reason for submitting changes. The whole thing is pretty dated and being replaced shortly thankfully.

        I was thinking about it. I don't have much of a legacy here though. My first ~1800 posts were utter garbage, mostly on the wifi, firebot and CAP forums, during the DPP era when I was literally 12-14 years old.

        I never played BW. I played a bit of BW2, and because of how bad hazard control was (starmie and... ?) and how good the Stealth Rock users were, it was pretty hard to use.

      Hi Ash Borer,

      Are you interested in "Pokemon Nicknames"? If so, do you have a list of nicknames that I could look at?

      Thank you ^^ ~✧

        Oh and Ash Borer?

        You helped inspire a blog I made with some friends a few years ago. I saw a thread you made on Pokemon Nicknames, and you included protocols such as Aesthetics, Subtlety, and most important of all; the ease of interpretation ^^

        P.S. I could go on but I'd think it best we chatted via PM, plus I'd love to show you the blog. Is that okay? ^^

        TC, thanks for your time :)

      i think u missed the nuance of my post. not all anti-gay marriage dudes are ALL CAPS BIGOTS (though a bunch are) but that wasn't the question.
      1. Shrug
        Shrug
        eg wondered why a thread supposedly on polygamy ended up w anti gay bigotry, and that's because of the reasons i laid out in my post: "why cant we legalize polygamy" (considered p universally a bad idea) is only an argument made by anti-gay dudes who are in fact bigots based on the idea of slippery slope
        Dec 5, 2016
      2. Ash Borer
        Ash Borer
        Yes, the "slippery slope" is a pretty bad fallacy, but I don't think it's completely dishonest. Read what I posted, I think I fairly succinctly draw parallels between gay marriage, and polygamy.

        I think the failure to avoid the slippery slope fallacy is a failure by both sides of the argument. See, the problem is that a lot of proponents for gay marriage treat more as a dogma. That the rights for gays to marriage are worth it, no matter what negative effect on society it has. As opposed to considering that maybe gay marriage is a bad choice, but then after careful debate, deciding that yes gay marriage is the right way to go.

        Unfortunately, if you treat legalizing gay marriage as a self evident truth, then you open yourself up to the slippery slope fallacy, because it's effortless to declare anything a self evident truth, right?

        So yes, if you're wondering why a polygamy thread turned into an anti-gay marriage discussion that is the answer. Conservatives get the feeling that progressives don't consider the negative consequences of their progressiveness, and that they just treat it as a self evidently true ideology. While this general feeling isn't entirely rational to believe (productive political debate does happen from time to time), and you are not responsible alone for making conservative people think like this, it does explain why they so quickly claim that "as soon as you legal gay marriage we'll be able to marry our dogs!!"

        you're right, the feeling of the game being "matchup based" is the whole reason I stopped playing. I think I'll play until I get bored, and do some writing on the nature of what it means for a metagame to be "matchup based". I'veb een laddering these past couple days with a two teams. heatran / aegis / rotom-w / lando-t / lele / zam and pheromosa / aegislash / bisharp / venusaur / greninja / lando-i. I only played about 40 matches I guess, but idk, I always got the feeling that all of my wins and losses were just me being outplayed, or outplaying the opponent. Whenever I was in a good match it felt like both my team and the opponent's team could reasonably cover everything, and it was just up to skill. It felt like a healthy metagame to me.. we'll see where it goes I guess.

        Agreed, I'll gladly help you out on the writing primarily with replays if I can. I've been laddering with Pokemon I found underrated to prove that diversity in the metagame is still plausible, mainly Infernape, Gliscor, and I made some teams featuring Amoonguss, Lycanroc, and such. It all failed though because I couldn't stop the quickban though.

        I quit during most of ORAS but it took until Aegislash came back to realize what ORAS lacked. Teambuilding was actually fun and I felt the thrill of being able to outplay my opponent to get through with my gameplan like the days of DPP when you don't have 20+ mons that honestly force you to run a specific Pokemon or your ass gets dropped. (Bisharp Manaphy Thundurus M-Lopunny Mega Medicham M-Scizor M-Diancie are just the ones on the top of my head) Was extremely unfun.

      not worth me making a post on the thread, but Keldeo actually is booty, which is fine because that Pokemon pre gen 5 would honestly be considered a very busted mon.

      pretty hyped that Infernape is a bit better than Keldeo rn with all the bug and steels running in the meta, also u-turn to dug is based.

        Yea I typically run Fire Blast / CC / TPunch / Gunk Shot or U-Turn.

        Trying to create the best spread for it. I know for gen 6 the best was 112 Att / 204 SpA / 208 Speed but idk what to do with the spread rn

    Besides my other numerous circle of acquaintances I have one more intimate confidant-my melancholy. In the midst of my joy, in the midst of my work, she waves to me, calls me to one side, even though physically I stay put. My melancholy is the most faithful mistress I have known, what wonder, then, that I love her in return.
