Separate names with a comma.
Like all of the things!
I like good posts when I read them, and you happened to have written quite a few in a short span of time. Plus, I've been without Internet accesss for a day and a half, so there was a bit to catch up on.
Yo, new game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4pyT0r66ks
Already made a thread.
Hi, I'm thinking of making a merchandise thread in Orange Islands.
Like, a record of items from Pokemon Center or other official companies. Records company, Pokemon involved, release dates... etc.
Do you think people will be interested at all?
I guess it would work. It's not a topic we've covered before, at least, and I think some people would want to share their stories. I'd say go for it.
Wait are you from Norway?
How would you feel about a thread regarding the logistics of Pokemon? i.e. all the real-world processes that are mentioned but never explicitly shown like intercity trade, shipping, et cetera?
Well, I'd say it verges eerily along the edge of fan-fiction. The games give next to nothing to build on, and the other types of media just write whatever suits the plot. Infrastructure just appears for the purpose of being set-pieces (like Cold Storage, or the Castelia sewers). I feel world building is one of the least prioritized aspects of the franchise, so ultimately we'd have to make up a lot of stuff for the thread to have any sort of substance. Personally, I'm not too sure if it's within the rules.
Makes sense to me. Err, not sure if this is much better, but perhaps a thread regarding world-building in Pokemon as a whole? Compiling/analysing/linking little quips from NPCs, TV shows, et cetera in a vein similar to the Mysteries thread?
Well... I guess a "world-building in Pokémon" thread couldn't hurt.
Hey, could I maybe get the go-ahead to make a "Little things you like about Pokémon" thread? Basically a parallel to "Little things you don't like about Gen 6" because we're running out of shit to say about that and tbh we could do with a little less whining lol
Less whining = more fun. Go ahead!
I need a link to one of your Team Rocket rants. They're really good and I don't know where they are.
Whoops, sorry for late reply. I've been busy the past couple days.
Anyway, here's the most recent one: http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/unpopular-opinions.3530232/page-48#post-6330863
Would it be okay if I mentioned CAP in the Unpopular Opinions thread on the side, as long as I didn't entirely focus on that, since they technically do exist on Smogon?
I guess it won't hurt. As long as you write well, and give some reasoning. And, of course, that not many people are likely to agree with you. It's not the "Opinions" thread after all.
Just wanted to let you know I called dibs for the inevitable Z thread like a week ago.
You will let me post that, right?
Well... we will make the thread when a game is officially announced, or maybe when a reliable source posts leaks (with direct confirmation). If we expect an announcement to come, we might make the thread in advance (otherwise there will be ~10 of them within two minutes of the announcement). I haven't entirely worked that out with the other mods yet, but I guess we'll find a solution on IRC. At any rate, we'll find a way to give you some credit in the OP.
That's cool, thanks.
New information came about the silhouette
"Also, the massive Pokémon shown in CoroCoro that's also in the trailer has pulsating hexagons in the trailer around its body."
Now it's pretty much obvious what it is; does this warrant the thread being open
Pulsating Hexagons is a very key design characteristic of Zygarde and not really any other Pokémon; especially not the Tao trio or whatever
That's true. I'll open the thread if you make the bumping post. I'm a little too tired to write out one now. It'll be open in a minute or so.
whoops, was away for dinner
Would it be okay to make a post in Orange Islands discussing the recent survey made my the Pokemon company? If you haven't heard about it yet, the link to the Bulbapedia article is here, http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/The_Pok%C3%A9mon_Company_International_launches_survey and the link to the survey is within the article.
Well... is there really all that much to discuss about it? If you could bring up some good discussion points I'll greenlight it, but just throwing the link out isn't enough, I think.
About the Pokémon Pets threads: The first one returns an IP in Romania which has been reported as a spam source, while the second one is from India. Both have not been on since posting their appropriate threads. Ergo they are most likely spambots and should be outright banned. Your call though.
If even you can't find that thread, maybe a new one ought to be made
Well, I guess so. It would have been outdated by a generation anyway, and that's assuming I remember correctly. Found an archived thread from 2007 on the subject, which also concerned moves certain Pokémon *didn't* have. That aspect of the matter would be a little iffy considering our "wishlisting" rules nowadays, but the "wait, why does ____ have ___?" question would be valid even now.
Assuming the problem is simply stating "lol bagon has hydro pump haha", perhaps it would instead be more productive to make the thread's purpose not just pointing out these oddities, but actually generating discussion and possibilities for why they have them? There has been discussion for these matters throughout quite a few threads actually; we could even expand it to things like evolution methods and type chart strangeness.
I'd rather have it narrowed down a little. Have it span too wide, and you'll have people filling the thread with complaints about IVs and the Fairy type. Movepool oddities are fine enough.
Sounds like you were, in irl
codrarolling your eyes
That's still not as bad as the previous one, I'm afraid.
No, wait, not "afraid". More like "reassured". That means you at least can't pump out stuff like that with a hundred percent consistency.
In your most recent post at the Mysteries and Conspiracies thread, you said "Hoennite" to describe a person from Hoenn. Isn't it "Hoennese"? Just curious, since it's never stated.
No idea. I thought the word was fitting, but "Hoennese" might be better. A Hoennite sounds too much like a Mega Stone for the Hoennese.
...like what happened to Mr. Bonding?
I believe these are the adjectival forms of each region: Kantoan, Johtoan, Hoennese, Sinnohan (the "H" is silent), Unovan, and Kalosian.
Get a CT already.
CT? As in CT scan?
Hey I was wondering if by any chance you knew any Secret Bases with a Delinquent trainer type and if possible all Blissey as well
Check the ORAS secret bases thread. I think somebody is keeping tabs somewhere around there.
I tried to find more Secret Bases besides the ones in Secret Islets/Meadow etc but I couldn't find any with female characters
MY OI THREAD TITLE WAS WRONG FOR THREE DAYS lmao kms
Oh well. At least everybody resisted the temptation to reply that Pokémon designs should be based on Pokémon. Probably because that's exactly what Gen. V did, and it didn't work very well, with approximately half the dex being expies for existing Pokémon...
So if i wanted to post a challange in the challange thread, do i have to accept one first?
Which thread was that, again? For the Scramble ChallAnge, you post challanges when people request them (see the OP, it has a quite extensive explanation). In the "Postgame challEnge" thread, I figured we could make a similar rule, so that the thread doesn't get flooded with challenges nobody plays. However, this is still up for review, so I might change it later. Keep your challenge in memory, and post it when somebody requests a challenge, or in case I lift the "only post challenges upon request" rule.
Wait, if your badged, doesn't that mean you can't change your name back?
Nah, one needs to be a global mod to change names. I could just PM Stellar about it, but my old name was kind of noobish (In the coaster community, it'd be the equivalent of "Charizard" here), so I think I'll keep the new one.
I see, your pic is really cool though (I just noticed today that there were codfish in it)
Yo hit up IRC for a bit :P Want a chat ;)
Oh god... I am slow. I never realised the weird objects were fish D:
Codfish, to be exact.
Nice new pic.
Thanks a lot! I figured I'd keep the username for a while. How long I have no idea. The old one wasn't even original. Like going on a rollercoaster forum and calling yourself "Charizard".
Please have mercy
They announced it a long time ago
I decided to wait for definite proof.
Or, well, we won't get any definite proof before Gen. VII comes along (and XY is soundly abandoned), but I figured that if they didn't announce any patches by release day, it'd be a safe bet that there wouldn't be any at all.
I meant that they explicitly announced there would be no patches, around the time they announced the separate Battle Spot ladders and said they'd be incompatible.
Want me to make a list of Natures people would want for Legendaries?
Oh, sure you are imagining things.... check again!
And if the forum software says I just edited the post, disregard it. It's lying!
