Separate names with a comma.
u should probably know im not actually guang joe
Past tense "bought" - I used to buy Pokemon cards at Sanrio stores in the US, in 1998.
Sanrio in Asia will never sell Pokemon stuff.
Ah. My point was about counterfeit cards being easily detectable, at least back in the day. They were horribly made, sometimes with holographic material that covered the whole card (before legit cards had the full shinies). Imagine a rubbery, scaled down charmander that's holographic. Anyway, sorry for calling you out.
are there any official chinese pokemon cards? looking to complete my global collection
i dont believe you
Most other people don't.
But I don't care.
That's why everyone's making fun of me.
But the reason is that 1. they don't know about Chinese cards, 2. they don't know me.
yo im also from hk :)
Franchisers = 版權代理.
In order to hold official tournaments, you need to get the franchiser for Pokemon Video games to sponsor and hold it for you. Hong Kong has 3 separate franchisers for video games, cards , and animation.
Although the card franchiser holds tournaments, it is for cards only.
oic but the world cup of pokemon is from smogon so no need franchiser
Oh, you mean that. Sorry, lol.
Yes, I think you can join.
I won't be available though., but thanks for telling me.
id probably delete that picture in ur thread unless you want ppl on smogon finding ur facebook
We were just joking about mega glalie's potential crap stats on oi.
The best thing you can do is to respond to people you find discuss agreeably and ignore those you can't stand. One thread can support a few discussions at once on the same topic.
I know not everybody is from USA. You can only put in 50. Also, you make it fairly clear you're from Hong Kong.
I guess if your thread title was "USA meetup", then it wouldn't have a problem.
hey there :) i'm playing you in the Tutee tournament. I'll be on pretty frequently, I'm GMT-6 and will be GMT-7 in 3 days. How about you?
Well starting now, I'm happy to say I'm back in GMT - 7! I'll be available after 12:00 P.M my time for virtually all day.
Should be 12:15pm your place now.
Or did I wrongly calculate?
Yeah man I'm online right now, find me in ubers room :)
Hey, for some reason they changed my opponent and its you now. Let me know when can we do it :)
Okie dokie. Just let me know.
I'm home now
My showdown username is Lavandula
hi, im your tutor for xy ou :)
i see we have a pretty big time difference, but im sure i can accomodate it. whats your preferred way to talk? irc, skype, fb, simple pm vm?
im on facebook all day, but skype is probably the best way, i dont go on irc too much nowadays. i wont always be able to go on ps since my computers shaky atm, but i can always use my GFs one :) phone has skype and irc too, so tbh whatever youre most comfy with!
Ok. I posted my facebook and Skype in the Tutee talk thing.
If you can't see it, I'll pm you.
tutors cant see tutee talk :P
Do you still have your paper on US audiences and ethnocentrism regarding Pokémon? I'm not sure what language you wrote it in, but if it's in English and you don't mind, I'd be really interested in reading it, or any sources you used at the time.
Oh, it's covered in the essay I posted.
The section was way smaller than I remembered though. Might be because I edited the essay many times before I handed it in.
I don't have another essay about it, sadly. And I don't have a habit of saving deleted sections for my essays.
Oh, I didn't see it. Thanks!
So my language proficiency determines what type of person I am? o.O
Then again that's what I studied so I guess xD
Your language proficiency determines that you aren't the same uneducated people who survived the cultural revolution.
pardon my ignorance, but... cultural revolution? of which sort?
As in the ONE cultural revolution that happened in China.
Then one they either kill smart people or order the smart people to serve the farmers.
Hi there, read your thread on political problems. I'm Chinese (and see that nobody Chinese has replied in the thread yet), now what would you say to me if I ever paid HK a visit? :p
Um, since your English is good, you aren't the same type of Chinese that poop on the streets, right?
Just be polite, queue up, offer your seat to the elderly and generally follow the rules. And don't perform bulk purchases.
agree with jynx XD
hey! you live in HK? I was just reading your political problems thread
Wha?? They've been existing since like 2002 or so.
haha oh well I'll stick with smogon! are you working in HK? or uni? Im still in high school
I'm waiting for offers for studying.
I'm still choosing what to study.
What will you do now?
Oh... I see.
I don't smoke anything though :p
That's good, smoking is bad for your health I hear :P
Indeed it is.
do you actually believe china should be bombed
Not that it should be, but the current military situation suggests that USA would have a right go at China.
Also, I wasn't the maker of the pic, it belongs to a group.
But honestly, most Hongkongers my age would have joined. Many of these people are actually wishing China to be bombed, not me though.
Yo I'm pretty sure that KD's thread was sarcastic??
Oh? so it's for fun?
Pretty sure. There's no disrespect meant to you whatsoever. If anything, I'm sure most people are wondering why you're taking what happened with this computer thing so seriously
Well... haha. Even most Asians find me too serious. That's how serious I am xDDD
A perfectionist, perhaps?
About 1: I am sure that all was just the unreleased info WPM was holding; he hinted at it during all the MageLeif debacle on /vp/, so he knew it already. Now 2's a good point and is the reason I don't trust those rumors 100%. That, and the fact MageLeif didn't make a single mention to that supposed "bonding mechanic" Masuda mentioned on his devblog.
Buuuuut the rumors still have that benefit of doubt, as he got the CoroCoro names right. So, for now, they'll be allowed.
Hey, you said something about some of Pokébeach's rumors being fake. Do you have any links confirming that, by chance? I'm curious as to why those would be fake, I don't think WPM would be that gullible.
what an overlooked user, your usefulness in nu is beyond amazing.
