The Mass Awakening Part Four

MONARCH OUTPOST 33 SKULL ISLAND

Roxanne Bettera ran for her life. Following her in the tight corridor behind her was a Skull Crawler, its jaws stained with blood. A few minutes earlier, an odd sound echoed worldwide, and Skull Island’s Outpost 33 was no exception. The creatures stored in Outpost 33’s extensive menagerie broke out of their cells, driven by the sound, and had begun attacking and killing Monarch staff. Bettera herself worked in Human Resources and was distributing notices in a nearby office when the escaped Skull Crawlers made their way to her floor. The corridor she is running through seemed to drag on forever. Finally a door was ahead! She ran ahead with the power of adrenaline, and slammed the door in the Skull Crawler’s face. The creature banged against the door, and it's clear that it won’t hold forever. Bettera looked around. She was in an evacuated office, and saw an empty desk nearby. She pushed it against the door and ran out. She found herself in Outpost 33’s rotunda, and chaos was everywhere.

A giant green snake snatched up an unsuspecting office worker off a balcony. A Skull Crawler and a Death Jackal were fighting over a dead body. A flock of Psychovultures and gray toothed vultures swooped down and overwhelmed fleeing workers. A security guard tries to protect himself from a flightless predatory bird by spraying it with a fire extinguisher. Large toothed monkeys jumped from balcony to balcony, attacking whomever was in their path. Bettera was frozen in terror and too late she saw a Death Jackal charging at her. Before it could attack her, she was tackled to the ground and the creature ran straight into a metal pole, knocking itself out. Standing above her was Vanessa, another Human Resources worker. β€œCome on! No time to waste!” Bettera staggered to her feet and ran with her. β€œWhere are we going?” Vanessa answered: β€œControl Room! It’s just up these stairs.” They took a left and started going up but were forced to separate when a man with a giant beetle on his back ran past them.

One floor up and the Control Room was right across. Using their IDs, the two came in. The majority of staff in the room had fled, leaving two workers: Zander, a young male tech, and Darren, an older tech. β€œGuys, what’s going on?” Zander turned his head back. β€œWe don’t know. An odd Titan sound echoed worldwide and the things down in the Menagerie went crazy.” It was clear that he was stressed from the events on the screens before him. Security camera

Balan Wonderworld Reveal Trailer Analysis

Hi all!

I'm going to be going through the trailer and pointing out aspects that I find interesting. I've taken screenshots of the moments that stand out to me in chronological order and you can find that album here. I will also be taking a look at the behind the scenes (BTS) video at a later date because there's also a lot of details hidden away in there too. But for now, this trailer!

(Edit: The analysis of the BTS video is now up!)

---

The trailer starts with both Leo and Emma being distracted by two different fuzzballs that lead them to Wonderworld. The two may be dreaming of life in the city, but I think this means they enter the theatre from the real world. This is probably a Narnia situation where time doesn't move until they get out though, so I doubt we'll be dealing with the real-world consequences of this (especially as the website states everyone's been there at least once and those who visit Wonderworld don't remember their time there afterwards).

Anyway, it's possible that these two creatures act as pets, since they can be seen with the other residents in the group pictures of the website and seem too small and cutesy to have a functional purpose. Also, when entering the theatre, both kids walk through a hallway of mirrors that reflects the other before their duplicates are swapped out for proper reflections. This suggests that both are entering at the same time, but maybe this implies that Balan and the others can exist in multiple versions of Wonderworld at the same time, so they can help multiple guests at once?

Regardless, once inside the theatre, Balan and more of the puffballs put on a performance for the kids. This is a cut version of the full opening of the game as seen in the BTS video, but for now we can see that behind the stage is a train that takes the kids to the central hub. This hub contains 12 numbered circles which most likely lead to different levels. The "1" portal is high up, so it's possible that some or all of them may require small challenges (or at least a walk) to get to. The 1 and 6 portals have images representing what lies beyond them while the 12 portal is blank, so it's likely that the 1 and 6 circles lead to level that have already been completed while the 12th level is still locked.

We're then treated to a montage of the different levels. The castle stage pops u

Titanus Ho-ō

DISCOVERY:

on the 4^(th) of May 2020, Monarch found in Tottori Sand Dunes, its bright, rainbow colours burst through the sand, illuminating the sky with its wonderful lightshow - eventually the titan emerged, to show off its glamorous feathers, it flew off towards England, of which it has landed in in Yorkshire - and is now nesting on one of the few farms that are there.

Tottori Sand Dunes, Japan

HISTORY:

The Ho-ō Bird is a Japanese Yokai, it appears to be a form of Rainbow bird/Phoenix - males are often considered Fengs and Females Huangs. As a symbol, it represents fire, the sun, and the imperial family, it also stands for the virtues of duty, propriety, faith, and mercy. Its five colors represent the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Ho-ō's are creatures that value peace, and never cause harm to other living things. When it flies, it is said that the wind seizes its breeze, dust settles, and birds and insects grow silent. they eat bamboo seeds and nest only in paulownia trees.

the real Ho-ō compared to the Pokemon 'Ho-oh'

REALITY:

Ho-ō is a giant Teratornid, specifically an Argentavis. when she flies over a jungle, its blooms with life - this is likely because the Ho-ō is considered the life bringer of Aboriginal Folklore - her feathers are like that of a Bee Hummingbird's throat, reflective and able to bounce light to form a rainbow colouring, her tail has the same properties, her tail feathers are around 50-70 meters long, the largest (the middle) is almost 89 meters long. her head crest is a dark orange with a slight yellow, the crest can retract like most birds, this may have aided Ho-ō in confusing other titans. according to ancient cave paintings of her, she rarely has any conflict with other titans, only 8.9% of the fossil record show her fighting other titans, which is strange for an Argentavis, they are predatory birds, and are often hunting birds - she may get her energy from IxCacao's sweets, which we are calling 'Titan Sweets.' she is the only one of her kind, but may be housing an egg in Yorkshire. with a height of a solid 400 feet, a wingspan of 711 feet, and a weight of 55,678 tonnes, she is a flying rainbow at standards. her radiatio

Help building a "battle box"

Context: back in 2015, I play a little bit of Heroclix, I love the concept of the game and his mechanics, so I decided to come back. Now, I'm a TCG casual player, I like to build battle boxes of two decks (I have an Mtg, Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh! battle box right now), the idea is that a can play a well-balanced game with complex and fun strategies with my friends, normally I build deck with different strategies, so my friends can choose his favorites playstyles. I also like to build decks would look interesting if you know a little bit about the game (for example, the yu-gi-oh! features decks with strategies present in the anime). I would like to adapt this concept to Heroclix, so I would like to build 2 teams that have a similar power level.

Team: I build 2 teams of 300 points because I remember that was the standard back in the day and because points give me a prelaminar power level scale, the first was a team inspired by Teen Titans TV show:

  • Rebirth Nightwing (75 pts.)
  • Rebirth Cyborg (50 pts.)
  • Rebirth Beast boy (60 pts.)
  • Rebirth Raven (50 pts.)
  • Rebirth Starfire (50 pts.)
  • New Teen Titans ATA X5 (15 pts.)

After building this team, I think it would be interesting to build a Marvel villains team to have the "Two Faces" (DC/Marvel and Heroes/Villains) of Heroclix, My first thought was a Sinister Six team, mostly because a like a lot Spiderman and his villains:

  • Overdrive (35 pts.)
  • Fast Force Kingpin (50 pts.)
  • Earth X Vulture (50 pts.) (not prime version)
  • Earth X Electro (50 pts.)
  • Earth X Doctor Octopus (50 pts.)
  • Earth X Beetle (50 pts.)
  • Original Sinister Six ATA x5 (15 pts.) (Overdrive doesn't have the ATA)

at least for me, and before testing the figures (mainly because I don't want to invest before being sure of the teams), The teams doesn't seams balance, because I feel the sinister six have too much power thanks to the "Sinister Six United" trait and the combo of Kingpin and Beetle seams too strong for me, Also I feel that Overdrive give a lot of utility, meaning that the second team have better mobility. Also I don't have a lot of knowledge and proficient with Heroclix, so my preliminary view can be wrong. That why I would like to ask you:

Questions:

  1. Are this teams in the same power level?
  2. Is the same points limit a restriction that can hurt the idea of a battle box?
  3. I would also like that this battle box can be play in a 400 point mode, so you can play with the figures in his complete dial, what I can

Default English word list

Alright so, I took the default database from there https://skribbliohints.github.io/ and with the help of html, I extracted the words to a list separated by commas. It's useful when you want to translate those words into your native language.

Word of advice, when using google translate, do not put all words at once there, it can rapidly worsen the translation.

(And there is a last thing. Their algorithm of picking only custom words is not working really good, at least for me. Meaning that I often get duplicates, despite having a list this big and without duplicates. I'm still trying to find some solution to this, so if somebody is experiencing this as well, share the knowledge please, I will do the same.)

SOLUTION: Thanks for the reply from /u/PepegaWR who identified the cause. I also tested it and there seems to be a custom words limit of 5000 characters. The easiest way in my opinion is to shuffle the words before each session to minimize the impact. Also thanks to the /u/flynger who had the same idea before me :)

Finally, here it is, enjoy the scribbling ^^ :

A continuation of a previous post. We're INTJs, and you now realize you're not alone in this world. However, you still feel lonely. You don't have a partner, after all. Do you really want a partner, someone who will accompany you for the rest of your life? Perhaps your situation is the same as mine.

Greetings to all of you. I'm Balart, a 28 years old guy from Lima, Peru. Around a month ago I made a post in this sub telling my story, initially just wanting to vent a bit after finding I was an INTJ and how suddenly all of my life experiences actually made sense now. The overwhelming response I got from a lot of users were quite varied, from people thanking me for making them realize they weren't alone or weird, just themselves, to even a dude who wanted to create a new world order just for INTJs (seriously!). But more importantly, it helped me to realize that, like many others have said before, reading this sub is like reading the diary of your own life you never bothered to write before.

With our lives being so similar, I've been pondering for a while if we INTJs have overall the same issues in life, and if we could actually work together to brainstorm solutions for said issues. I mean, it makes sense to me, and I love when things make sense. So I decided today to share what I think is my most obvious problem (and its probably yours, too).

A partner. Or, to be more specific, a lack of one.

You have been dateless your whole life. Look around you. All of the people you know are getting married and having kids and being sucessful and such. Your parents just don't stop asking when are you gonna bring a girl/guy home, and ever worse, ask you for granchildren already! What a bunch of jerks, I say. So, take a big fat breath, look into a mirror and ask yourself. "Why I can't find a partner?"

Ok, so lets get the obvious out of the way. Go to the bathroom, close the door and strip. Yeah, go ahead and get naked, I'll wait right here. Look at the mirror and think aloud. "If I were my supposed dream partner, would I date me?". So you then go and do a methodic way of fixing your looks: Out of shape? You go to the gym and get goddamn ripped with an ass worthy of a few Greek Gods/Godesses. Smell bad? You start showering more often (and taking longer to do so), taking care of yourself exfoliating the fuck out of your body. You still look awful? You get a new haircut and pop some tags and you literally look like goddamn Chris Hermsworth/ScarJo now. And now potential partners circle you like freaking hungry vultures, wanting to take a bite out of that delicious body you now have.

And here is where my main issue comes from. You end rejecting them all. Not because you're a

At first i was confused cause nothing really happened at all and suddenly Egwene gets to be Amyrlin and plays this Daes'dumbass or whatever that shit's called like the fiddle and Mat gets micro power molested by them all the time, like damn leave that guy alone for once. THEN RAND GETS PUT IN A FUCKING BOX AFTER THEY FAKED ME OUT WITH THE 13 AES SEDAI IN CAEMLYN HOLY SHIT! Then those absolute bitches start torturing him and MIN!! What even is this joke of an organization??? Hoes mad because Rand kills her warders whilst they do this shit...like wtf are you on? When the battle starts all goes crazy, but i wasnt really surprised when the Asha dudes show up because they are on the cover fighting the aiel but then they are badass poppin heads like its counter strike! I was a bit let down after they secured the campsite cause i thought they were just gonna go away now, BUT THEN THIS DUDE SAYS ASH'MAN KILL AND THEY OPEN THE BALL LIKE HES A FUCKING LUNATIC POKEMON TRAINER AND THEY EXPLODE THOSE GUYS! The vultures are gonna happy about this one, they get served already cut meat and they even cook and season it with their fire and earth mixer (like there gotta be a ton of condiments in all that shit). After that i thought it was done but then this friggin Gholum comes in through the door like a cat in those videos where they wiggle through shit like liquid and cuts the hippie Einstein up like meatballs. i mean that dude had to have found some kind of way to nuke shayol ghul or something if they send fucking catwoman to assassinate him.

I'm noticing a pattern here..

Pokemon kept in sword and shield:

Maractus (no cacti in uk), Beartic (no polar bears), Ninjask (no cicadas), Pangoro (no pandas), Bergmite (no icebergs even though it's cold ;) ), Mandibuzz (no vultures), Hippopotas (no hippos).

Pokemon added in sword and shield:

A penguin (no penguins), A bear trap stunfisk (no bears and traps like that are illegal), A giant centipede (maybe in australia mate), A monkey as a starter (dont really see a lot of monkeys here if i'm honest chap).

Pokemon removed:

Lillipup (the yorkshire terrier that comes from the uk), Swanna (one of the most obvious animals of the uk that everyone here hates), Lots of normal bugs that live here e.g wurmple, Castform (rain joke), Mareep.

So in short they removed the only pokemon that made sense to keep and added the one's that don't despite the fact im pretty sure they stated they're making efforts to only include pokemon that fit in during an interview. (If anyone can find this then please comment a link i just heard it here on reddit)

How Strong Is The MCU Spider-Man?

Introduction

.Β·*Β·*Β·.Β·*Β·*Β·. **. * *. .*

━━┅━━━┅━━━━━┓Hey guys, its Clint! And today I have a post for you, and this is not just another normal blog, it's a Spooktober special blog! Ok, yes this is not whatsoever related to Halloween or October but, it's my post okay.But in all seriousness, I hope you like the blog because I worked really hard on it! Now let's answer the question everyone has been asking...

┗━━┅━━━┅━━━━━┛

How Strong Is Spider-Man

Building Falling On Him

In this scene we can see a concrete building collapse on Pete, we can assume that this building is relatively short and looks to be only one story tall. Homecoming is shot at Franklin K. Lane high school, there is no specific building there that is like the one we saw (well none I saw) but an average one-story tall building weighs up to 60,000 to 120,000 pounds heavy.

But remember the roof of the building collapsed on him, not the entire building. So we can assume its 1/3 of that amount. So about 30,000 pounds, but then we need to include that the building directly fell on him not just a weight applying on him, and that not all of the building fell on him either, so in total Spidey would need to withstand around 323,205 pounds of force!

Then he picks it up, so that means that Spidey can carry/pick up over 323,205 pounds, or about 161.6 tons! But remember he only picked up only about 1/3 of it so he was able to pick up over 107,735 pounds or 53.8 tons!

Civil War

So I decided that Civil War should get an entire category itself since spidey wasn't in it for most of it. So first off let's calculate that YouTube video Tony showed us, thankfully we know that the car weighed 4,000 pounds or 2 tons, and went 40 mph. I am honestly so happy we got an exact number, it would've been just a bunch of extra work.

Ok, this is quite similar to a car crash but imagine a human in the middle of it. So if I did my math correctly that means he would be able to survive a hit of 62,898 pounds of force or 31.44 US tons!

Next, let's calculate the scene were Pete catches Bucky's punch, we can assume Bucky wasn't trying his hardest but again he is fighting for his freedom so ill let it slide, Peter caught his arm with ease and even made a joke about it. Mind you this was the same arm that broke concrete, which has a psi of 2,500 PSI to 5,000 PSI, which means peter can lift/ catch things under 1 ton of force with little to no effort! That is extremely impressive! ( I feel like I'm

Cracked Reflection

β€œNoah, when was the last time you left this office?” my coworker asked while I was debugging yet another server issue.

β€œLast night,” I said to her, not seeing the point of her playing reporter on me.

β€œHave you eaten lunch yet?”

β€œYeah, I ate a cup of noodles.”

β€œYou’re kidding, right?”

β€œHey, that’s an actual meal. Not all of us have the time to make whatever salad you brought today.”

β€œAnd how long have you been looking at that same bug?” she said, frowning at me.

β€œOnly about three hours. Good old Rupert here has heard me scream at him for at least two of them.” I said, looking at my rubber duck.

β€œLook, maybe walking outside and getting some fresh air might help you out. Clear your mind and help you with that issue.”

β€œDid you need to stash something again?” I asked her.

She glanced outside the door before flashing a bottle of Red Fence to me. Great, here we go again. At least I was getting something decent this time. She handed me the bottle, which I promptly stashed in my stash drawer, and I gave her the key to my office. I suppose it’s probably against company policy but Hannah seemed to have it good with management, so I let it slide.

β€œSeriously Noah, take a breather. I’ll make sure nothing happens to the servers,” she said as she waved me off to the support team area.

One of the other tech support guys was stuck answering phones and asking someone on the other end if their computer was plugged in. He saw me walk by and waved at me, and either mouthed β€œHello” or expressed his shock at seeing me outside of my office. Not that I particularly cared since I couldn’t find anywhere in the room to sit while Hannah stashed something in my office.

I found my way down the third floor hallway and pressed the button for the elevator to take me downstairs and after waiting a few minutes, I realized it was out. It took me a minute later to realize that there was a neon pink announcement posted to the right of the elevator door saying that it was down for maintenance.

I walked across the hall past some conference room. It looked like some employees were arguing about some company task or something, which made me miss my quiet office even more. Eventually I found my way to the stairwell and made it down to the first floor where it seemed like some of the developers were scrambling to get some tree rendered correctly. I stumbled my way past them as I made it to the building patio to go check on my phone.

Apparently whoever was in charge of the weather today

Minimum Number of Spider-Man Villains Required to Defeat...

The Rules

You can build a team of any number of characters from the roster of 30 comic book villains below.

Your objective is to win as many rounds as possible without re-using any characters from the roster (you must defeat each round using a completely new team of unused characters). The fewer characters you use to defeat any given round, the more characters you have left to draw from for undertaking additional rounds.

You do not have to play the rounds in order. For example, if you think Round 1 is unwinnable unless you use 80% of the roster in one go, then you can skip it and start with another round instead.

The objective is to clear as many rounds as possible, not to defeat each and every round.

Unless specified otherwise, all characters are in-character composites with standard equipment only.

No outside help. No significant prep time unless otherwise specified. Characters are given very brief descriptions of their opponents' abilities. A character is "defeated" if he or she is incapacitated or killed.

The Roster

Bullseye

Carnage

Chameleon

Doctor Octopus

Electro

Green Goblin ^((Norman Osborn version))

Hammerhead ^((has one or two straightforward firearms))

Hobgoblin ^((Jason Macendale version))

Hydro-Man

Kingpin ^((has one or two straightforward firearms))

Kraven the Hunter ^((has several exotic poisons and tranquilizers))

Mephisto

Mister Negative

M.O.D.O.K.

Molten Man

Morbius, the Living Vampire ^((hungry and bloodlusted))

Mysterio

Sandman

Incurring the wrath of Instinct

A little backstory: I go to college on a small campus. We have only three gyms that are about a two minute walk from the each other. There’s been a silent oath of sorts between the players of PokΓ©mon Go on campus; β€œeach team gets one gym”. This helps everyone get coins and is usually upheld. Valor keeps to their gym, Instinct keeps to theirs, Mystic? Well...Mystic is like the problem child that never learned to share. For whatever reason, the Mystic players enjoy targeting Instinct gyms. Even if the Valor gym is weaker, they will always attack Instinct. This day however...Instinct had enough.

It was a sunny day. Each gym was balanced and things were peaceful. Since everything was balanced, Instinct decided to have a little fun. We grouped together and made our gym eeveelutions only. We were almost complete, only missing one or two of the eeveelutions (I don’t have a screenshot, but a friend does, I’ll edit it in once I can get it sent to me) Then, Mystic arrived. They sweeped the gym, and put in two generic PokΓ©mon. I was annoyed, this had been happening for weeks now. So I headed over to the gym to retake it. It became apparent I wasn’t the only one.... Every single instinct member that had been at that gym (6 in total) descended onto that gym like a flock of hungry vultures. The gym was no match; the mystic players couldn’t even get their golden razz berries off fast enough. There were 2 groups of 3. When one group was healing up their pokemon, the other group was fighting.

It was a bloodbath.

The gym was taken back over, this time with our strongest PokΓ©mon put in. It wasn’t as pretty as our eeveelution gym, but we had that gym for the rest of the day.

Moral of the story? Well...there’s two. Be kind; share the gyms. And Don’t piss off Instinct.

Thanks for reading!

Anki, Shurima's Scourge

Preface

Hey everyone! Sorry for my last minute submission this month, I was definitely struggling with this month's requirement. Surprisingly, I had trouble conceptualizing a champion with such an open ended requirement. I had several ideas in mind, but one that really stuck with me was a Champion whose lore is explained in their gameplay.

So began this idea of a Champion scavenging through Summoner's Rift, taking down enemy Champion's to find out who has their Macguffin. Then I took it another step and thought, "what if the champion and the enemy team just had this game of cat and mouse/tag?".

Then I had to consider why Anki wants this Macguffin so badly. That's came Fiora from Brave Frontier came to the picture. I've always liked this character when they introduced her and I made her the basis of Anki's designed.

Initially, Anki had only a whip since we don't have a whip champion, but I couldn't think of any abilities. It was only when I gave in and used Ivy Valentine's snake sword as inspiration that I was able to come out with her abilities.

For her lore, I had to pinpoint a region where an aging curse would make sense, and that's when I stumbled upon Cassiopeia's lore. Other than Taliyah, we don't have a new gen (no ascendant) Shuriman protagonists since Sivir's destiny is still left ambiguous. Eventually, Anki's whole concept started coming together.

Hope you enjoy the concept and let me know what you think! Good luck to everyone else competing this month!

Introduction

Anki, Shurima's Scourge is an AD Assassin who utilizes two stances, each with unique abilities. Unlike other transformation characters, Anki switches stances whenever she uses a basic ability. In game, she switches in and out of both stances mid combo, forcing players to methodically plan out their attack and combo routes.

Though Anki can be played any way, potentially even as bot lane adc, playing her as a jungler would be most benefit Anki due to her unique passive: which forces players into a game of cat and mouse as Anki and the enemy team fight for possession over the Arachia Namestone.

Things to improve for Season 2

As the season 1 nears it's end, it's time to look at how to improve things for season 2. Here are some of the ideas we rolled around in our remote pvp telegram group (including some top battlers like Henksuli, Kiroosa & Haaskalintu/NordicVulture).

1. Make 1-2 defeat recordable and make it award 0.5 points for loser. You just won one round against that top #500 trainer but it doesn't affect your ranking in any way. (Henksuli doesn't approve this message :D )

2. Bye round win automatically - If you don't have an opponent the system registers it as a win automatically. No more waiting for that one person in remote tournaments who went for a hike for two days and didn't confirm his/hers "win".

3. Register moves when registering team. Show these moves AFTER the matchup with confirmation window "Did your opponent use the moves shown here?" or similar. The rule to not use TM's during a tournament is already in place but without any means to actually monitor it other than a lengthy pen&paper list of each trainers each pokemon's each move which is very impractical method. There is also a rule where you cannot share this information forward:

"Throughout the match, a draft, and pregame procedures, players are responsible for making reasonable efforts to prevent hidden information from being revealed.

Players must not actively attempt to gain information hidden from them but are not required to inform opponents who are accidentally revealing hidden information."

Your thoughts?

HPWU Everything we know so far!

Hi guys! I have read a bit of misinformation online and I thought of clearing things up. As we know, Niantic has released some pieces of information yesterday, both on their website and to other game gaming website. Putting all those articles together we can have a clearer picture of the game so far.

The articles are from the Pottermore, Niantic website, Eurogamer, IGN, TechCrunch and CNET. Each article has slightly more in-depth information, so it's interesting to combine them together. Also thanks to iahliyl and glitchvoid for more info! If I have missed something or I got something wrong let me know.

EDIT: Thanks for the gold, kind stranger! :) EDIT 2: This post has been stickied, so I will try to update it. I have cleared some things up and added images at the end.

Storyline and objectives

  • The general storyline follows the 'Calamity', a mysterious event that is causing 'artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world'. We, the players, will be part of the newly formed Statute of Secrecy Task Force (SOS Task Force), 'established by the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards for the purpose of investigating and containing The Calamity.'
  • The story 'takes place "roughly" in the modern day and begins with grown-up auror Harry Potter sending you off to investigate a magical event known as the Calamity'.

My Ultimate Pokemon Game, Pt. 4

So sorry it took a while. I don’t really have a good excuse for that, anyway, for my last part on my idea of what my ideal Pokemon game would be, let’s talk about all these new pokemon!

Regional Variants:

So, first up, yes, regional forms do exist in this region. So, who’s getting a new Silop form?

Geodude, Graveler, and Golem get a new Silop-form that is based on marble, a common material used to build many monuments and statues in Greece. Geodude gets a square, marble-block shape as part of his new form. Graveler and Golem also get more squared, sculpted looks as a result. The typing gets changed to Rock/Normal

Tauros gets a new form that is purely Celestial type to align him with the zodiac sign of Taurus. Celestial pokemon usually get a black/purple coloration with starry forms within.

Litleo and Pyroar also get a change by becoming Fire/Celestial to align them with the zodiac sign of Leo.

Ralts, Kirlia, Gardevoir, and Gallade get Celestial typing added to them to become the zodiac sign of Virgo.

Zodiac/Constellation Pokemon:

Since we mentioned this new Celestial typing and zodiac signs, yes, there are all twelve zodiac signs represented as well as a few other famous constellations. Oh, and don’t forget the new Eeveelution, Stareon! So, who gets the new Celestial typing?

Ralts, Kirlia, Gardevoir, and Gallade represent Virgo. Gardevoir is Psychic/Celestial and Gallade is Fighting/Celestial. I know that Gallade doesn’t really fit, but with the new regional form, it kind of came with the package.

Librale is a new Steel/Celestial type to represent Libra.

Gemiwin is a pure Celestial type to represent Gemini.

Skorar and its evolution Skorest are new Bug/Celestial types to represent Scorpio.

Aquivazo is a new Water/Celestial type to represent Aquarius. It is a living-item pokemon that looks like a vase.

Centrag is a new Lyric/Celestial type based on a centaur and also Saggitarius.

Litleo and Pyroar are the regional forms with a Fire/Celestial typing to represent Leo.

Kavoligo and its evolution Kavomeg are Water/Celestial types based on Cancer the crab.

Tauros becomes purely Celestial in its new regional form to represent Taurus.

Caprigida is a Water/Celestial type to represent Capricorn

Psarino is a Water-type that starts out as just a minnow, but it’s evolution Psaryo becomes Water/Celestial to represent Pisces.

Astevolo is an alternate evolution to Flaafy, making it an Electric/Celestial type to represent the sign Ares.

Here are 50 ways that Pokemon becoming real would be terrible for humanity.
  1. Weezing and Koffing using smog would pollute the air to unlivable standards.

  2. The competition for food would kill off species through competition.

  3. They would possibly kill each other to extinction.

  4. Being able to seemingly generate endless electricity would send energy companies into bankruptcy creating a ripple in the economy.

  5. Sableye would be poached to extinction (or Mega and the stone or whatever to make it mega) and topple the entire jewelry market basically through flooding.

  6. The water companies and the entire city design is changed due to Pokemon being able to make water. Assuming it is drinkable.

  7. Floods from surf and tidal wave.

  8. Underground fighting clubs for Pokemon

  9. Damage from battles destroying ecosystems.

  10. Ponyta and Rapidash would burn everything.

  11. Kids mental damage from seeing some scary dragon fight randomly in the woods. Adults too I guess.

  12. Noise pollution from Pokemon and battles.

  13. Self destruct and stuff destroying cities and homes.

  14. Pokemon being abused by owners which is sad.

  15. People using Pokemon to commit crimes or try to take over places or something.

  16. Shelter and animal hospital overflow from the addition of neglected/injured Pokemon with no additional funding. Also less adopted pets since kittens are in competition with cute Pokemon.

  17. Pokemon replacing humans in jobs.

  18. People injured by random battles.

  19. Air traffic is worse and less predictable. Zapdos could be up there.

  20. Using Blizzard and stuff seems like it could have negative impacts, like freezing out insects and making unsafe driving conditions.

  21. The media is flooded with stories of destruction from Pokemon so no other news gets through.

  22. Construction workers are overworked from the constant road repair and building repair.

  23. An overall feeling of dread and fear knowing we can't really stop Mewtwo.

  24. Ditto has created a monopoly and a frenzy on the patent of the transformation tech.

  25. We have 0 idea how Pokemon will react to stuff like Rabies and that could be awful.

  26. It confirms the afterlife via ghosts and spirits which has caused religious tension worldwide and atheists into a tailspin.

  27. Kadabra and Alakazam have manipulation powers that could be abused in government somehow. Maybe Gengar possession of politicians? Also they bent all the spoons and created landfills of bent spoons.

  28. Cubone skulls and carcasses everywhere along with overweigh

I'd like a way to grind a specific weapon or hero

Many players in the top groups have arrived at a point where weapon or hero upgrades are few and far between. There are good reasons for this; it levels off the playing field and prevents power creep.

However, it also means that improving any particular aspect of your build becomes a very long grind. And there is preciously little you can do to prioritize aspects of your build. I find this demotivating. It would be a lot more fun to grind out something SPECIFIC instead of just grinding away infestations/safehouse of your choice and hoping the random number generator will be kind to you.

Example: I want to improve my Vulture pistol as it is often required in challenges and I find it lacking in power. Anything I do towards that goal has an equal chance of improving my Piledriver shotgun, which I really don't care about. This lack of control frustrates me. It's hard to customize your arsenal as everything tends to move at the same speed...

Some form of card trading (even at 10:1 loss) would go some way towards this, but maybe there are other mechanics that can be proposed? In pokemon go we could take a buddy for a walk to get candy, maybe here we could get extra cards for the weapons and heroes you use often, like a kill counter on each one and a bonus card when it ticks over to a certain number?

10 Characters For Smash Switch

I saw everyone making their lists and I was like β€œHey, I’ve got good ideas, maybe I should make one!” So here it is. The characters I believe should be in Smash 5.

  1. Mario (Luigi’s Mansion)

We have all played the gamecube hit, Luigi’s Mansion and I believe it would be awesome to add someone like Luigi’s brother to Smash for Switch. He could have a similar moveset to Luigi, but instead of green fireballs, he could have red fireballs, therefore, making him not a clone. We have enough clones as it is.

  1. King Koopa (Super Mario Brothers Super Show)

Time to face the facts. There just aren’t enough villains in Smash. I believe that King Koopa is arguably one of the most dastardly villains on TV and he should have an inclusion in the next smash game. He has been shown breathing fire and his IQ is off the charts. His claws and spiked shell would be great additions to his moveset. Boom. You got yourself a character. You’re welcome Nintendo.

  1. Pokeman (Pokemon I Choose You)

With the recent release of the movie, β€œPokemon I Choose You”, and with the 50th Pokemon Anniversary just around the corner, there would be no better way to advertise the movie than by putting Pokeman in the new Smash Bros game. Pokeman is everyone’s favorite electric hamster and I’m quite surprised Pokeman hasn’t been put in the series yet. C’mon Nintendo, what are you doing?

  1. Monkey Kong (King Kong: Skull Island)

Monkey Kong has been part of Nintendo since you still had to carry quarters in your pocket if you wanted to play video games. Monkey Dude is a barrel-throwing gorilla who fights Luigi’s brother (From Luigi’s Mansion). Monkey Guy is exactly what kids want from a fighting game like Super Smash Bros. This one is a no-brainer. Put him in Smash, Nintendo.

  1. Sonic the Hedgehog (The Tortoise and the Hedgehog)

Nintendo’s oldest nursery rhyme out there, β€œThe Tortoise and the Hedgehog”, is a short story that is still read to kids today. The moral behind it is to always keep your wrist strap on during Wii Bowling or you’ll be turned into a tortoise. This is a lesson that hasn’t been enforced enough in recent years and is something that I believe can be better enforced in Microsoft’s Super Smash Brothers. Sonic would be a great icon to remind today’s kids of that lesson.

  1. Mega Man (Metroid Prime)

Mega Man, the robot that fights the purple dragon from Dragon Tales and the brain things that suck your energy away would be a perfect addition to Smash Switch. Mega Man shoots m

Pokemon Endgame: 13th Place

Four in a row with zero write-up. I feel so bad lol.

13th Place is Giratina. Which means Sinnoh is the second region to be fully eliminated as well as our final Dragon slayed ( somewhere, Benjamin Wade has popped a Random Boner). RIP PokeSatan. In addition, this and #12 marked our first tie in averages. How I solved this dilemma is simple- I compared which of the two had the highest placement/22 out of every ranker.

Blurbs:

Koror- Lucifer in the flesh. Need I say more? Well, I will say one more thing: Platinum is a vast, vast improvement over Diamond and Pearl for many reasons, not the least of which is Giratina.

acktar- While not too distant from the Bad Dragons that penetrate Time and Space with their thick, shuddering forms, Giratina manages to be substantially cooler than the rest of them through a more direct link to what it represents, and it manages to be a sufficiently menacing centipede-like dragon thing.

reef- A really interesting legendary pokemon that fully succeeds in being intimidating both in its altered and origin formes, though most of its strength as a pokemon stems from its place in the world (or rather its own world I suppose), which is shown off very well through Platinum in one of the best climaxes of the pokemon games.

rams: Satan centipede was something that was always going to do well, and in a rankdown that loves Ghost types this much, there was no way Giratina was ever being left out of endgame.

Final Placements for Centipede Devil:

Slicer: 19

Q: 5

acktar: 7

Koror: 20

Pokemon Endgame: 14th Place

RIP yet another no writeup. I swear we'll be getting to ones with them, just hold out a bit longer.

Number 14 is Gardevoir. Hoenn is now down to five and with the next Hoenn cut will come the final Region Top 4. Look forward to it, bros and broettes~

Blurbs-

Koror: The term "waifu bait" has been thrown around a lot earlier in this rankdown, and I do regret that I contributed to that. That's reductive of Gardevoir and just how great of a Pokemon it truly is. The lore and dex entries are fantastic, although a bit lacking. And they absolutely nailed the design. Though I admit, it does weird me out that Gardevoir isn't exclusively female since Gallade came out one generation later. They should have just released Gallade a generation earlier (yes I know they probably didn't come up with it yet.)

acktar: This was not who I wanted to ideally Revive, but I’m ultimately 150-200% satisfied with the decision that got Gardevoir to Endgame. It presents a more novel take on Psychic-types (less about flashy mind explosions, more about protection and defense), and it has some still-unique niches to this day with Trace and a bag of tricks deeper than a magician’s trunk.

reef: No dirty stuff

rams: Waifu bait aside Gardevoir is an undeniably well-designed Pokemon. It is the living embodiment of elegance and it’s great that we as a group were able to recognize its amazing aesthetics.

Rankings for Waifu Pokemon:

rams: 19

Slicer: 17

Q: 6

reef: 20

acktar: 9

Koror: 8

vulture: 14

hikk: 1

Average: 11.75/14th Place

Amazon Prime: The Tale of Jeff Bezos and his mob in the Catacombs.

I woke up and I was standing at the front of my high school. It looked like it did before the auditorium. No one seems to notice me. Suddenly, I hear a voice call out my name. I look ahead, and in the sea of cars there's this yellow convertible car. Serina, the crazy bitch from econ, was calling to me. Saying "GET IT!" So I quite literally jump in the car and she starts speeding away. She took the road that you would take on the way to Ralph's, but she didnt turn and kept going straight. I asked her "so what are we doing? I havent seen you in more than a year." Her eyes are focused on the road as she replies "I need you to help me with a job. I fucked up."

At this point in time, we were speeding through a desert. Sand was billowing up into clouds behind us, and we were the only people on the road. There was sparse vegetation but no sand dunes. "Wait, where are we?" I asked. I had no idea how she had skipped traffic, skipped the freeway, etc. She looked at me and said "I was stealing things off of Amazon. The family was broke, so I reversed all of our transactions from the last seven years and put that sum of money into a pirated bank account. We were thriving for a while, but one night... the gangsters came. They were Amazon employees, higher ups. The boss showed up too. Jeff Bezos announced that we needed to repent, and he stole my brother and jumped out the window."

She stopped the car and we began to walk towards this pitch-black ship, completely wrecked. The ice-cold wind made strange howling sounds as it blew through the holes. Serina knocked on the ship, and asked if it could help us. The ship creaked in response. Out walked a short pirate with a beer belly and completely white hair. Behind him, a Zebra slowly followed. No matter where the Zebra went, it always looked like it was covered in shadows. Serina explained the problem with the pirate, and the Zebra nodded as she spoke. I just stood there. As the sun started to set, the pirate looked at me. As he breathed in, the entire world seemed to groan. He held his breath, and everything went silent. No wind. No sound. No movement. And in a deep voice that sounded as if it were the voice of Time itself asked me:

"Do you accept?"

I looked at Serina, confused. But my heart was telling me that I must accept. So I turn to the pirate, his beady eyes twinkling like a happy alcoholic's.

"I accept."

And in less than an instant, the desert had been turned into a dense forest. We were at a campfire,

Generation 8: Italy possibilities

Hi all, i am italian and i'm following the debate about spain/italy region

I was wondering about Italy's possibilities... like places AND animals/plants/other stuff to take inspiration from.

First let's analzye geography, from North to sud:

North italy... mountains, cold, then a vast flat land, full of rivers (the main one, the Po, which ends into the sea passing trough Venice) and Woods.

There are the two main industrial cities (Turin and Milan) and the already mentioned Venice. Plus the smallest "capital/main" city, Aosta, beetween Alpes.

Speaking of Alpes there is Monte Bianco (White mountain) highest mountain in Europe and other spectaculare rock formations like famous Dolomiti.

In the Eas of the North there are caves and the city Trieste, which is a beatiful and Majestic city and famous for the cold wind that in winter breaths there (Bora, AKA Blizzard)

Going to the center there are more countryside places, beautiful forests and smaller mountains. Main cities there are Bologna (famous for RagΓΉ and Lasagne), Reggio Emilia, and then a bit more in the South Florence and Rome, the capital city.

Won't take too much time speaking of these two. They are way too famous.

Now we are kinda in the exact middle of the Nation. Let's keep on moving to the South. The next main city we meet is Napoli (Pizza comes from here most likely, or it's identified as it's birthplace anyway). And here is the Vesuvio, the famous sleeping Volcano, with the ancient petrified cities of Pompei and Ercolano.

Now going more to the South the landscape gets immediately (an i mast say a bit sadly) rural and wild. Temperatures get hot, there are less big cities.

Going to the right, or to East there is Puglia, going to South we keep on with Calabria till we rach the "point of the boot" "Reggio Calabria", the city on the sea, on the channel that separates Italy from Sicily "stretto of Messina"Before crossing the sea tough we should stop for a while in the ghost city of Matera which inhabitants left because they went to live somewhere else. it's cnsidered an UNESCO inheritage. Imagine it a whole city of thousands of houses and caves without anyone (except tourists). Ok now let's cross the sea. We reach Sicily 8that is my region so i will mo0st likely speak ia bit more of it, since i know properly).

In the eastern part of Sicily we have the Eolie islands (with 1 really active Volcano, Stromboli, a sleeping one, called "Volcano" and yes the word volcano comes from it (or from the

Hamlet Trailer analysis/speculation(long)

I don't normally do this kind of thing but I've a lot of thoughts bouncing around ever since I watched the trailer. This'll be part analysis, part speculation. It's also gonna be long, probably.

-Okay, so the first thing I find really interesting is in the first bit of gameplay we see. When Wilson is chopping down the thorns there are leaves at the top of the screen. It reminds me of the freezing/overheating warnings that appear, so could this be something new like that that you have to watch out for? If yes, what is it and what does it do? The leaves could also just be aesthetic, since wilson is in a jungle-y biome in the footage. Wilson is also wearing a new hat. Maybe the hat is like the pirate hat? Expanding the fog-of-war-clear radius would make sense for the theme they're going for. It may also just function as a straw hat replacement, if you start the game like this.

-So obviously the Ruins are a big part of the new DLC. What I'm wondering about is how will they function. Will they be like the Volcano or Caves, with one entrance leading to one large area, or will there be multiple different ruins? I think the latter is more likely.

-We see the pig totem thing that appeared in the first trailer again, although not in gameplay. Will all ruins have the same goal of obtaining this totem, or will there be other treasures? And what's it for? Do you sell it for money? Is it for crafting? Does it grant access to new a new crafting tab a la the Volcanic Workbench? Maybe it gives you a new follower like this DLCs Glommer or Packim Baggins. Also, will the totem be on it's own, or will it be guarded by a boss/miniboss? I hope the latter, that'd be cool. Also, I'm almost certain that once you take the totem the dungeon will begin collapsing in on itself.

-When the town is shown, two guard-pigs can be seen Presumably if you attack one of the pig-people these guys will come beat you up. With this games theme of civilized pig people, I wonder if they'll simply kill you or if you'll get thrown in some pig-prison.

-On the section with the pig thief, I wonder if you have to kill him to get your money back. Violence will definitely be involved, but again with this game's theme, maybe he'll just "faint" like in pokemon.

-A new item, Shears is seen when wilson cuts the grass. I wonder if normal grass will return or if this will be you're only way of getting cut grass. Also Wil;son gets attacked by a beetle enemy. Lots of insects in this new DLC it seems. It doesn

I wrote down a list of all 552 of my letter pair images.

This started out as a way to torture myself and eventually turned into something that could be helpful. I'll make a few notes before the list, feel free to skip this part:

  1. I wouldn't recommend memorizing this list, and making them into flashcards or something is just about the worst thing you could do. Instead, do untimed 3BLD solves and try to come up with letter pairs of your own, and if you can't, refer to a list. (Like this one!)

  2. A lot of these images are sexual, primarily because sexual images tend to stand out and be more memorable. If you really don't want to use them, there's a SFW version next to each of them.

  3. Honestly, don't do what I did with the X's. The best thing would be to change it to a "z" sound and come up with stuff like Zebra and Zack, but I haven't done that cause I'm lazy. EDIT: Actually, looks like the speedsolving wiki used superheroes for the X's, so maybe I'll add them in later.

  4. For "dangling letters", when you have an odd number of targets and one letter left over, I use an image from my X list, but change "electric" to "bloody". But often I don't even need to memorize "bloody" because I just tend to remember I have parity.

  5. "Consonant followed by vowel" letter pairs are tricky, so if I could, I would try to use an image that was "consonant-vowel-same consonant" so I wouldn't forget, such as Cactus for CA. This doesn't work for every pair, so sometimes you just have to remember that that image corresponds to that letter pair.

  6. There is another letter pair list here.

Oh and I should mention, this is for blindfolded solving memorization. Here's a tutorial if you have no idea what I'm talking about.

Okay, on to the list!

Requests for mope.io

I want to introduce some of my ideas for a future mope update:

*Balance: these are my balancing ideas for some creatures that really needs it in my opinion:

-Pigeon, toucano, artic owl and falcon: Something annoying and broken with them is the fact that they can fly every time(unless if they're stunned or something) so i think they could get a little nerf in their habilities, like having a bigger water and HP requirement to use their habilities or something;

-Snake: it'ss probably the worse animal, since it's poison got nerfed, if you chooses snake, your death is garanted, i think a good way to buff it is to make it able to enter small holes, and something that i'll talk later;

-every animal from the rhyno tier: I think it's probably the worse tier ever, it's the only tier which i would like to skip, first of all, because all of the mobs are vunerable to predators, and because their habilities sucks a bit, i don't know if there are people that plays well as them, but for me it's the worse tier in mope.io;

-Eagle: while all the rhyno tier animals need a buff, the eagle is a special case, it still needs a buff, but not a buff like them, eagle is another of the worse animals in the game, the eagle passed through several changes, first it was a bear tier animal and it was completely strong and unbalanced, then it got a lot of balances until it becomes what it is now, a rhyno tier animal, and i think it's the worse from this tier, it's habilitie have a large cooldown, and it's almost useless, there's no use for her ability if you don't have where to land your prey, i know that she can get water animals and bring them to land, but how can it do it, if it can't even catch them, it's water speed is so slow, by balance ideas for it are increasing a bit it's water speed, and bringing back the flying whitout using the hability system, which eagles had before, but them it was removed, it made the eagle a lot userfull, so it don't have to grab a prey to fly, but just like i said before about the changes in flying creatures, it would have a big water and HP requirements;

-Ostrich: do you remember when i said that snake was the worse animal, well, i'm not very sure about that anymore, since i forgot about ostrich when i was typing about snake, now about the ostrich, it's the secound and probably first worse animal in the game, first of all, it's chicks are completely useless, they're very slow, and dies to everything, even to teama

One Piece Live Action Series Dream Casting

So the trailer for the new pokemon movie has been trending for a few days now. As much as I though "detective pikachu" is stupid, the trailer actually looked so good. I was really impressed with it and for some reason this gives me so much hype for the One Piece Live Action series. I looked everywhere but could barely find any information about it at all. Since Oda already gave his word, I trust him. But in the mean time, I had to go on a quest to cast actors that would best fit the characters.

The live action series will start with East Blue so I'm focusing on the main characters that were presented here.

  • Gol D. Roger - Al Pacino| Roger does not have much appearance but he is very important to the story so he needs to be portrayed by someone with intimidating and somewhat overwhelmingly strong presence.
  • Shanks - Johnny Depp | Not much to explain. He's charismatic, he's charming, he pulls everything off. He actually would be perfect for Sanji if not for his age.
  • Luffy - Ki Hong Lee | I know it's a long shot but look at him!! If you don't know him, he's from Maze Runner. He used to be in a lot of Wongfu production videos as well. I feel like he can pull of being silly funny and then serious without being too childish and cringe-worthy. He's like 32 but a GIRL CAN DREAM also he doesn't look 32!
  • Coby - Noah Schnapp | When Coby first made his appearance, he was really young. Every time he does make an appearance later in the series, it's usually short sweet and important. Base on Noah's outstanding performance on Stranger Things, he can definitely pull off not only the initial awkward and coward Coby but also later on Marineford Coby too. Plus, he's young so we might see a real puberty wonder like we did with Coby the character.
  • Alvida - [Katie Cassidy](https://frostsnow.com/uploads/biography/2016/01/17/katie-cassidy

Beef Jerky vs The Neon Noodle.

TL:DR Rambling opinion piece.

My wife and I are going to see KotM this Friday, so we thought we'd catch up on some recent Godzilla fare as an appetizer. We're going to watch Shin Godzilla sometime this week, but before that we wanted to watch the Godzilla anime on Netflix. We both like anime and Godzilla and the trailers seemed cool, so this was a slam dunk.

I'd like to share my thoughts on it and talk about it with you all, if that's all right. I'll be referring to the people of the Aratrum collectively as Voyagers, cause it's easier for me. SPOILERS FOLLOW.

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters,

We both really liked the first movie. The action was fun and we found it morbidly humorous in a few places. "The Earth remembers" got a pretty hearty laugh out of both of us for some reason. The Voyagers repeatedly calculating how long it's been since they had left earth, and being wrong every time, we found pretty funny as well.

The Godzilla pigeons absolutely wrecking the landing party was a pretty cool way to show just how outclassed the Voyagers were, but then I don't remember them doing much after that. And holy shit, when everyone united behind Haruo my sides went into geosynchronous orbit with the Aratrum. Stable, intelligent, not at all easily manipulated Haruo was obviously the best choice for a leader.

The end fight with "Godzilla" was fun to watch, and I actually found myself pulling for the Voyagers. That being said I was not at all sad, or that surprised, when actual Godzilla showed up, wagged his tail, and leveled their everything. I was excited to see the Mothran girl at the end, and we went into the second movie with high hopes.

Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle,

We didn't like this one as much as the first. I didn't like it at all, and my wife was just kinda "meh" about it. I didn't find the action as engaging. The Vulture suits just didn't look like they could do anything to Godzilla now. The size difference was just too great. Mothra's non-appearance coupled with Mechagodzilla being just some buildings was a double let down.

And the wife and I had another horrible chuckle at Haruo yelling at Galu-Gu for five minutes while Yuko is slowly consumed by Nanometal. Like really, he shouts at him for so long, all while Yuko dies a horrible death. And I do consider it a death, even though she's only in a coma.

Metphies whispering Ghidorah's name was a cool moment and did get some goosebumps out of me though.

Also, the Bilusaludos were my favor

PokeWorld: The Results! And More...

The votes are in, and the results are... Grass starter- Cactus!, Fire starter- Caracal!, Water starter- Nike Crocodile!, Vulture!, Scarab!, Apep, Ra and Anubis!, Professor Acacia!, Gyms! However, this is not the end. We still need ideas for Gym Leaders, Elite 4, Fakemon, Characters and Locations. Art is not needed, but welcome. We also need decisions on these.

"Idea: Giza is Victory Road and the pokemon league resides in a pyramid, full of puzzles and booby traps. the great sphinx makes for a sort of ruins of alph place" -sillyname396

"My suggestion is the presence of a guardian mummy Pokemon just at the end of Victory Road or at the entrance of the Pyramid, which serves as a gatekeeper of sorts. It won't be able to be caught, but is required to be defeated as a kind of final test before facing the E4." -prhasda

"Some sort of Moses Parallel could be cool, maybe the evil team catches up with the Protagonist and a god Pokemon, either Acrceus or the Giritina of the Region part the ocean or something. Just an Idea. Obviously have deserts, but don't over do it, Deserts have historically not been the most entertaining oh areas, so maybe spice it up with Pokemon Riding/Tunnelling.

An Important River. Again, kinda obvious, but the Nile kinda has to be in there some why or another.

Either the Pokemon League or Battle Factory (if your having one) should be a Pyramid.

The Affor mentioned Giratina/Necrozma of the Region Could be some sort of Sphinx/Like thing, Which would mesh the Wolf/Bird with headdress quite nicely into a Quadruped with Headdress, if that's something you go for."

-Sn0chaser

"Mt. Sinai could be a high-level or endgame cave leading to the top featuring an Abrahamic legendary. Which itself could complete a legendary trio with two Egyptian-based legendaries (Osiris and Isis? Horus and Seth? Etc)"

-DerynofAnarchy

"https://imgur.com/a/P3YIWqJ" -MeanderingTowershell

I also wanted to give a suggestion for the cover legendaries. In Ancient Egypt there were two crowns. One for Upper Egypt and one for Lower. They could be combined. If we can bring this in somehow or change something, it would be great.

I'm also on the lookout for an Admin. A second-in-command to help with this when I'm busy. Keep this in mind, if you wish to be an Admin, PM me.

P.s- This is late because I accidentally deleted the entire thing and had to start from scratch. Sorry for such a long post πŸ˜…

Animals that need to be pokemon

Garganornis- Would make an AWESOME fighting/rock fossil pokemon. It's a prehistoric angry goose that beat the shit out of people using its wings that are covered in boney spikes and knobs. It coudln't fly because it was so heavy (so no flying type despite looking like a bird) Poodle Moth- Seen it done here, but would make the perfect but eevelution Lamergire- With its connection to the dead/bones a flying/ghost type might be cool for the bearded vulture. Also it's a bueatiful animal. Peafowl: Might be a neat idea to have the males be flying/physic type (because of the train) and females be flying/grass type (because they are better at hiding). Assassin Bug: But/Dark. Aye-Aye: Maybe as a physic/dark. They've got a mythical reputation, and are creepy as can be. But still cute. Mantis Shrimp: Because why the hell not?

Any animals you wanna see made into pokemon?

Case #2- Youtube's Most Mysterious Vlogger Part 2

(Note: this is an update to my second case. To read Part 1, click here )

For the first two days, Moxxy didn’t answer my texts. Unusual for her, because she is very much a phone in hand kind of gal, but I let it go. Everyone needs space sometimes, right? On the third day she didn’t show for our coffee date and I tried calling her phone. A recorded message told me the number was disconnected. Then I began to worry. On day seven, after spending every minute I could at her favorite hangouts in hopes of seeing her, I decided something was definitely wrong.

I went to the police station to file a missing person's report and ended up making a fool of myself. We’d only known each other for about a month and a half and I’d yet to learn her address or any of her family’s names or even her last name. All I had was a defunct phone number, first name (Molly, which she hated, hence why she went by Moxxy) and description. I hoped that would be enough as Moxxy’s red hair and distinctive tattoos (of things like pokemon and Linda Blair’s face) stood out in a crowd, but apparently not. Without more information, there was nothing the police could do, though the sergeant promised to keep an eye out for her.

It didn’t matter anyway because I realized that night this was something the police couldn’t solve. They dealt in the material and their monsters were flesh and blood villains who followed the strict rules of the physical world. My monsters were more unpredictable.

I’ve never been the type to pay attention to dates unless I need to, and when I got home that day, I looked at a calendar for the first time in about a week. Then it clicked. The day Moxxy stopped texting me was July 11th, 2015. The anniversary of Scott Eric Cranston’s murder. And we’d wrapped up the case of Opperyke, the ghostly Youtuber, the week before. Or so I thought.

It was a hell of a coincidence, and I was rapidly losing my belief in coincidences.

I did fret at first that maybe I was wasting time chasing a supernatural explanation but what else could I do? Though I called myself an investigator, I wasn’t trained in any way. If the cops couldn’t find her, how could I? But I was the only one who could put the supernatural clues together, and I had to do something, even if Moxxy’s disappearance turned out to be a horror more suited to the world of police and sex traffickers and psychotic murderers.

Guatemala gets criticized for a lot of things, but I think the one thing truly untouchable about the season is the stellar location. But for a location to really come to life, you need to see the how it affects the cast. While it basically knocks everyone down in Guatemala, it's pretty cool that they have a zookeeper who clearly has a deep love of nature. So in this, we clearly get to see someone who is completely at peace with the nature while has a bit more trouble with the social aspects of Survivor, which creates some great television throughout. Also her keeping the car was absolutely the right decision and I love that unlike many others, she's kept the car and still uses it. - /u/WilburDes

XCOM 2: A first few months survival guide for Commander Ironman

Hi everyone,

Having recently completed a Commander Ironman playthrough (proof here), and having followed this sub for a while, I felt that there was a need for a general "first few months" or "getting off the ground" guide for people trying Commander, and especially for those doing Ironman. So this is that guide.


Disclaimer: this is a guide on how to survive Commander Ironman. It is not the One True Path or Only Way. This serves only to help people get started down the path of a successful Commander Ironman campaign. There are other ways to be successful too!


Ground rules / guidance to follow through entire game:

  • Never use Dashing (both turns spent moving at once, or "yellow moves"). It never pays, and only leads to bad things. As far as you're concerned, Dashing isn't actually an option in this game. Never, ever use it (with few exceptions like dashing onto the evac pad and then evacuating, or Run & Gun skill). Note that I define dashing as making a yellow move when you have 2 actions left. It's often OK (such as when you're Concealed) to make a blue move, assess your newly discovered map, and then make a second yellow move. This is better than an outright Dash because you can adjust what you do based on the outcome of the first half of the move.
  • Always use cover. Full cover is best, partial cover is good. Never get caught in the open or flanked (this is why you don't use Dashing). If you're screwed or out of position, use a Flashbang, use a Psi Operative to stasis your guy and move in, or put Specialist's Aid Protocol on your guy, which gets OP late game.
  • Use all of your grenades, every mission. Blow shit up. Kill aliens. Destroy cover. Use them. You'll destroy loot here and there - who cares as long as soldiers don't die.
  • Take a Flashbang on every mission. Baddies got the jump on ya? Bang them for instant Disorientation. Makes them mostly useless on their next turn and buys you time. Also, Flashbangs turn off psychic powers (like Sectoid Mind Control or PSI Zombie). Bang that Sectoid and the Mind Control is off / Zombie is dead. Snake grabbed your soldier? Bang 'em and they'll let go. Never leave home without them.
  • Use the Black Market. Everything there is pretty insanely cheap. Sell gun mods you won't use for money (and turret wrecks, screw the Defense Matrix). Buy PCS and gun mods here for cheap. Buy Scientists and Engineers here for cheap too. There's plenty of Intel

Historic Points of Interestβ€”Ferrisville [Fiction]

Here in the Hogan's Gap area is possibly the least known of all ghost towns in the West. Far enough off the beaten track to escape notice from tourists, souvenir hunters and vandals, Ferrisville is protected as a State Historic Park, though you won't find any fancy recreated saloons and hotels, antique shops and general stores nor make-believe attractions worthy of Disneyland there.

There are no basic services, camping, lodging, food vending or water fountains. There is not even a museum open during the summer to offer items available for sale. No team of rangers visit to maintain the site in a state of "arrested decay." It's off limits to the general public.

At the visitors' centers in Hogan's Gap, the pamphlets showing the various walking trails, picnic areas, and scenic camping spots will not present its location. Only on maps prior to 1896, would you find any mention of its existence.

That was how I found out there was such a place as Ferrisville, through a faded old map I discovered in a Prince Albert tobacco can nailed to a fallen tree. A map from perhaps a century ago.

I was eight back then and my brother Thomas was seven. We were following a narrow deer trail above this deep river canyon. We weren't even supposed to be up there; our parents would ground us several times over if they had found out. But they were too busy hosting a barbecue party at the time to notice our sudden departure.

After clambering up a small waterfall, we soon noticed shimmering in the forest gloom, an albino redwood tree growing from the remnants of a lightning-struck tree. As I paused at a dinner-platter-sized hole in the stump, I wondered what animal may have lived there. I noticed the nailed-up tin and pried it loose.

As soon as we got back home, I cleaned it. Opening the lid, I began tapping the tin gently to empty what I thought was some tobacco. To my amazement, I found it wasn't tobacco at all but an old faded piece of paper. I plucked the folded paper from the tin can and carefully unfolded it. It turned out to be a note detailing what appeared to be a mining claim in some place called Ferrisville.

I had never even heard of Ferrisville. When I started asking questions about it, locals once friendly and knowledgeable about Hogan's Gap's colorful past would suddenly turn distant and taciturn, or else they would change the subject altogether. Eventually, my grandparents told me to stop pestering people with "such foolish questions." When I asked why it was fo

[Pokemon of the Week] Mandibuzz

Hello all! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! It's time for a slightly late Pokemon of the Week thread! Don't forget to vote for next week's Pokemon of the Week at the bottom of this post!

This week's Pokemon is Mandibuzz


#630 Mandibuzz (Japanese γƒγƒ«γ‚ΈγƒΌγƒŠ Vulgina)

Bone Vulture PokΓ©mon

They adorn themselves beautifully with bones. This is supposedly an effort to attract males, but no male Mandibuzz have ever been found. It circles in the sky, keeping a keen eye out for PokΓ©mon in a weakened state. Its choicest food is Cubone.

Previous evolutionary stages

#629 Vullaby (Japanese バルチャむ Valchai)

Diapered PokΓ©mon

It protects its plump posterior with the bones of prey it has consumed. As it grows, it replaces the bones. It can’t fly yet and must wait until its wings have developed more. Since it’s still at a playful age, it hops around friskily.

Its Spring/Summer '16 so you know what that means, new round of MFA Challenge/Theme WAYWT!

Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to the ideas thread.

These WAYWTs will be posted on THURSDAYS, every other week to keep things fresh and give everyone enough time to pull a submission together. The schedule will use the following rhythm:

  • Week 2: Theme Thread
  • Week 3: Challenge Announcement
  • Week 4: Challenge Thread

Along the lines of "keeping things fresh", I plan to pull together some pretty weird announcement threads. I will pull together some background, satire, additional thoughts/ideas, rib shots, possible inspiration sources, and perhaps even some fan-fiction behind these ideas. I might be reaching out to a few of you to help collaborate. The first announcement will be made this Thursday, along with some reminders in GD.

Lets get to the point:

Wish cave by Twinkleaj_gaming

Okie so i don't know if i post this here or not, it's kind of drawn out, and it's about a lesser known pokemon game, but HERE GOES!

Wish cave by Twinkleaj_gaming

I write this as a warning to all those pokemon fans out there.

Do NOT buy Pokemon: Mystery dungeon Blue rescue team.

Don’t even RENT IT.

If you’re wondering WHY i’m writing this, just keep reading. I’ll start from the beginning.

β€œSweet!” I gasped as i opened the small, white box, the one present l had left on my birthday. It was a used copy of Pokemon: Mystery dungeon Blue rescue team from Gamestop. Before my parents had a chance to stop me, i raced upstairs and grabbed my shiny, red 3DS. I put the small cartridge into the handheld console and turned it on. I noticed there was a past save on it, so i checked it out. Nothing special. Not very many levels on the pokemon. I almost deleted the save, when i decided to check out the friends first. There were two, named Max and Amy. I looked at Max first. He was the Magnemite you befriend at the beginning of the game. Then i clicked on Amy. I let out a little gasp of shock. Amy was a Jirachi! I didn’t know that you couldn’t get Jirachi until the end of the game, so i marvelled at this person’s luck. Despite the jirachi, i deleted the save anyways. Was it just my imagination, or did a sad jirachi flash onto the screen for a second? I shook the thought off and started a new game, the personality quiz at the beginning appearing. I answered all the questions honestly, and got an Eevee. I yelled out in triumph. Eevee was my favorite pokemon! I picked a mudkip as my partner and typed in a name. Mickey, i called him, after the character from the reboot of Doctor Who. The starting cutscene played, where Mickey asked for my name. I thought for a second, then typed in Pastel. It sounded like a good name for an eevee. I got through tiny woods relatively quick and saved. My dad barged into my room and told me to get off because it was almost 9:00. I glanced out the window, and sure enough, it was completely pitch-black outside. I shut my 3ds off and got ready for bed, shaken by nightmares about a Jirachi.

A few months had passed. Pastel and Mickey were level 70, and i had multiple friends, including a few legendaries! I decided to try Wish Cave, the dungeon with the fabled Jirachi inside. My thoughts flashed back to the old save file with the Jirachi, wondering how they got it. Probably an action replay, i thought. I had heard of the little hacking devi

According to the Pokedex, Cubone and Marowak should be EXTINCT.

Ever since MatPat kicked off the whole PokΓ©dex Theory with Gardevoir, I've been thinking carefully about other potentially interesting species to look at. We've got over 900 of the things now, and even some of the smallest and weakest ones are capable of accomplishing some ridiculous things. I would love to analyze more in the future or see what other people come up with, but I personally want to start with the Cubone line.

The story behind these two Ground PokΓ©mon is probably one of the most famous in the franchise; Cubone wear the skull of their deceased mother, so there's no (recorded) instances of its face being seen. It frequently mourns their death, but once it comes to terms with their passing, it's said they can finally evolve into Marowak, at which point it goes from fairly timid to violent and vengeful. The two have gotten a lot of representation as a result; Cubone is one of the very first PokΓ©mon to appear in the first anime opening, and it also appears within the first ten episodes. It was featured in one of the first designs to be featured in the PokΓ©mon 151 brand, and TCG artist has stated it's her favorite PokΓ©mon. Meanwhile, the story of Marowak's ghost in Lavender Town's PokΓ©mon Tower is one of the most memorable moments from the original seriesβ€”so memorable, it was the theme for the second episode of PokΓ©mon Origins. It even ended getting up its own Alolan Variant.

That's not bad for a line that should be on the verge of extinction, according to the Pokedex.

My hypothesis is that Cubone and Marowak's continued survival as a species wouldn't be possible if their Pokedex entries were accurate.

In Red and Blue, the Pokedex doesn't actually mention the skull that Cubone wears belongs to its mother: >Because it never removes its skull helmet, no one has ever seen this PokΓ©mon's real face.

This detail is added in PokΓ©mon Stadium and PokΓ©mon Yellow, respectively:

>Always wears the skull of its deceased mother on its head and never shows its face. It cries mournfully in the moonlight.

>Wears the skull of its deceased mother. Its cries echo inside the skull and come out as a sad melody.

Chances are Marowak don't have more than one skull in their actual head. Even if the skulls mentioned in Pokedex entries include the ones they wear, this most likely means they can only have a maximum of two offspring. The Cubone line is said to be based off of dinosaurs, although there are theories stating they could be connected to Kangaskhan,

HG anniversary: Flesh Wound

Warning: dark themes, violence

β€œWake up, Bill! Wake up! WAKE UP!”

β€œFor the last time, Zigzagoon,” Bill muttered dozily as he pulled the pillow over his head, "my name is Elias now! If you DARE call me anything other than that, I swear I'll--"

"Guess what, B--Elias! Guess what? Guesswhatguesswhatguesswhatguesswhat?"

"You've decided to stop being a nuisance and get on with life," Bill guessed sarcastically.

"I learned a new trick, B--whoever you are! I can sense people!"

"Sure you can," Bill grumbled, pulling the covers over his head. Even after twenty years, it still wasn't easy with only his left arm. "Now go sense them somewhere else."

It had been twenty years since Bill's defeat in Johto, and they hadn't been kind to him. Twenty years after Domalakazam had ripped his arm off. Twenty years after Zigzagoon had dragged him off the beach with his teeth, brought him to the safe house, and patched his wounds. Twenty years since he'd dyed his hair and fled to Draysten, a region so notorious as a corrupt criminal haven that even the travel brochures claimed it to be the most boring place in the world just to keep the authorities away from it.

Twenty years since he should have been dead.

And for every day of those twenty years since his cracked ribs had healed, he always woke up in the same way: with Zigzagoon jumping on his chest. Usually with some new tidbit of information and/or a bunch of salvaged technology.

But today, it appeared to be with nothing but nonsense.

Nonsense Zigzagoon was clearly intent on getting Bill to listen to.

But given that Ziggy was one of the only two friends Bill had left in the world (the second being Kirlia, who was by now a Gallade with a Mega Stone just in case Bill got hassled), "Elias" eventually caved. "All right, Zigs, you have my full attention. My brain is still sleeping, though, so use small words."

Ziggy shook his head. "I already did, Bill! I told you I can sense people! Those are small words, right?"

Bill eyed Ziggy, curious. Ever since the little ferret-creature had been chosen as Root's acolyte, he'd been discovering new powers all the time. Most of which were discovered at the most awkward moments possible, and had caused a few incidents in which Bill was absolutely terrified that he was going to be found out, shot dead, and probably have his body paraded around as some sort of trophy. In a region with so many crime syndicates hiding out, there would be considerable bragging rights to a

Basic Information/Rules

Hello Everyone! This is just an introductory post before the first round starts in the next 24 hours. Here's some basic information about the Rankdown and how it will work.

  • Every Pokemon in their base form as well as Alolan forms, Wormadam's two alternate forms, Rotom's five alternate forms and Lycanroc's two alternate forms will be ranked, for a total of 834.

  • Everything can be tracked on [this spreadsheet] (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hcl8mz5sjJnUPCiH8Xw0C1NkW2cvhXeuJHAcHJhFijo/edit#gid=0)

  • One person will cut from all available Pokemon, then the next person will make their cut from all available Pokemon, and so on until Endgame.

  • Endgame will consist of 22 Pokemon. Every ranker will rank the 22 endgame Pokemon separately, then the average of those lists will be the endgame order.

  • Every ranker has five Revives. After a cut, a ranker can use one of their Revives to nullify the cut, putting that Pokemon back in the pool of Pokemon that can be cut.

  • If a Pokemon is Revived, the ranker who cut the Pokemon initially will not be allowed to cut that Pokemon again.

The order of cuts for every round will go like this:

  1. /u/hikkaru

  2. /u/elk12429

  3. /u/vulture_couture

  4. /u/ramskick

  5. /u/qngff

  6. /u/acktar

  7. /u/reeforward

  8. /u/kororsurvivor

  9. /u/csteino

  10. /u/slicer37

  11. /u/oomps62

All of this information will also be in the sidebar.

Silk: Hi…

Spider-Man: Hi… Do you feel this -

Silk: Strange connection between us? Yeah. Is that weird? What should we do about it?

Spider-Man: Well, I was thinking - (Starts getting dragged away) Hey! What’s going on!?

Spider-Man 2099: We talked about this Peter! It's for your own good!


Drama, romance and fun go over the top as the campus is hit with Homecoming fever. This is it! The moment we've been building up to all month. Who will be crowned Homecoming King and Queen?

Oh, and also we beat Vulture and stuff. Can you keep up with the Avengers?


Doctor Octopus: Behold! The Spider-Bot!

Lizard: Good lord, he’sss diversssifying.

Doctor Octopus: A much-needed improvement on Spider-Man’s meager Spider-Tracers, these drones not only emit a GPS signal for accurate tracking, but also has built in audio/video capabilities and mobility. The pinnacle of reconnaissance technology!

Green Goblin: Cool. Does this mean no more Octobots?

(Green Goblin gets picked up by Vulture’s Giant Octobot and put in Doctor Octopus’s face)

Doctor Octopus: How dare you even suggest that to me, you heathen.


Miles Morales: What are you doing Peter?

Spider-Man: I was curious and wanted to see if there was a Hobie Brown in this universe. Maybe get in contact with him.

Miles Morales: Cool. Can you look me up after?

Spider-Man: Sure. Found him. Looks like he's got a criminal record, though. And the name β€œProwler” keeps coming up in his file.

Miles Morales (Sweats nervously): Hey, I’ll catch up with you about other me another time. I've, uh, got to email my mom.


Spider-Woman: How did the dance go?

Spider-Gwen: Pretty good. I freaked out at least 5 or 6 people because of the whole being dead thing.

Moon Knight: Yeah, I remember the first party I went to after I came back from the dead. It was wild.


Silk: OK. I’ve got a job, I’ve got friends, and I’m on the trail tracking down my family. Now I need to get caught up on pop culture.

Ms. Marvel: Trust me, you came to the right person for the job. What do you want to know first?

Silk: Is Pokemon still popular? Aside from learning how my powers work, my Pokemon were the only thing keeping me company in the bunker.

Ms. Marvel: Are you kidding?! You can play Pokemon on your phone now!

Silk: Shut. Up.

How I used a horrible tragedy to make an entitled customer feel bad aka Many Thousands Died For That Gameboy

The year was 1999, and I was a polo-shirted employee of a big box electronic store working in the videogames section.

It was late November, and Christmas Fever joined forces with Pokemon Fever into some unholy virus of retail hell for Gold & Silver was just released. Many a parent thought they were being clever and reserved/pre-ordered a Gameboy Color in conjunction with the game well in advance. They'd descend like vultures upon the store whenever a new truck came in, while the supply of games was good, the supply of the GameBoys was not.

Then one day I was working a miracle happened, 3 appeared in a drop-shipment. We only had 5 pre-order customers left. So the decision was made to phone all of them and let them know they had a chance. Within an hour I watched Gameboy #3 walk away in the hands of happy customer just as the 4th remaining pre-order walked up.

Me: I'm so sorry ma'am, but we just sold the last one.

PreOrder: I had it reserved! YOU CALLED ME! insert fuming rant I can't recall precisely

Me: I apologize, but there's a shortage of Gameboys. There's just not enough for everyone who res-

PreOrder: I bet damn Nintendo is just holding them all back like Cabbage Patch Kids...

I think my mind snapped at that moment, for I never treated a customer like this before nor again. Several weeks earlier, on 9/21 to be precise, a devastating Earthquake hit Taiwan killing 2,415 and injuring 11,305 plus billions in damages. I recalled from a Bloomberg or NPR news story that one of Nintendo's factories was leveled as well.

Me (softly): Their factory was destroyed in the Earthquake.

PreOrder: huh?

Me: In Taiwan a couple of weeks ago...

PreOrder (snapping): They should fix the damn thing?! Don't they know it's Christmas!

With more venom I thought I was ever capable of, the following words left my lips, "Lady, I'm sure they'll get to it as soon as they can after dealing with the thousands of dead."

She went dead silent staring at me for a moment before awkwardly slinking away. I can only theorize that her lack of response was that she assumed I was of Taiwanese descent due to my skin tone. I'm Thai actually.

I never did anything like that before or again. I think my mind just snapped after dealing with the unending parade of upper-middle class rich assholes my entire tenure there. The store was located smack dab in the middle of a area booming with yuppies with too mu

A theory to explain the rattata, pidgey, pikachu, caterpie clones

As someone who loves biology and pokemon i thought it would be fun to share a theory that hit me. We always point out in each gen theres always the "pidgey" and the "rattata" and how most of gen 5s pokemon feel like copies of the original kanto dex but maybe this can be explained with. Convergent evolution when an animal evolves similarly to another unrelated animal to fullfil a niche like example old world vultures and new world vultures look similar but are completely unrelated (old world are related to eagles while new world are related to storks) maybe rattata fills a certain niche in kanto that zizagoon, bidoof, watchog all do in there respective regions and maybe that explains why they are so similar. It has been shown darwin evolution exists in the pokemon with alolan forms showing divergent evolution in the pokemon world so why not convergent evolution. Maybe the reason behind the unova feels like such a copy of the kanto is because its a far away land from there where other pokemon evolved from are different from the ones kanto evolved from but evolves similarly to fill the niches of the unova that are similar to kanto niches.

Just a thought what do you think

Vultures

A big "F YOU" to the vultures who just let a gym sit 1200 prestige below Level 8, then waited for somebody (me) to level it up before sticking one in seconds before I finished training.

POS vultures were still trying to steal my spot at the same gym when I was about to raise it to Level 9, I had to stop after training the first Pokemon in the gym when I got close, there literally were people waiting on me to get it 25 prestige higher so they could steal my spot again. Not one person trained the gym between Level 8 and 9 other than me. Ridiculous.

And to top it off, it wasn't the first time I got vultured on the day. I worked on a gym that needed under 2K prestige to level up to 7, after my first set or two had it under 400 prestige to go before training again, then after I finished what should have been enough for my spot a couple had appeared without me noticing (but I was standing out there at the gym). The guy has the nerve to say he didn't know he put his Vaporeon in the gym. Yeah, right. Shockingly the couple just stopped training it after I left. I'm not staying to help you level up the gym and steal from me again!!!

November 2014 survey results. Part 2: feedback.

[mod]

Context:


The second part of the survey will be focused on the negative feedback. As usual, we are aware than a disgruntled minority is more likely to voice its opinion. We have seen in Part 1 that an overwhelming majority of our users have no issues with the subreddit or its rules. Still, I think it is healthy to address the criticism and this is what this thread will be aiming to do.


##How would you rate the subreddit in general?

>About half of the people who trade here don't care about competitive battling and trade just to trade really. Let's take weedle for example for this. I have seen multipule times where people require the 2:1 for their HA weedle when it really will not matter what ability it has as the only time it can actually be useful is when it is mega'd.

>I love it but there's just too many people who are only interested in trading for things with a certain nature and ball.

>The notion that everything has a set value really bothers me. The fact that the sub has changed from a bartering society to a capitalistic one in which everyone says X is worth blah-blah shinies is why I don't trade on the subreddit very much. […] Now if you trade differently from the "official value" people hop into the thread to tell you its not right, which I feel is not right.

Two points here:

  • The subreddit is governed by offer and demand. Of course, it is annoying to see the Front page filled with Torchic/Celebi/Gengar/Diancie trades, but you are seeing the threads because people are offering or requesting them. Can it be annoying? Sure. Is there anything to do about it? Of course not.
  • We have often been asked to come up with an official value guide to help people figure out what their PokΓ©mon are worth. While it can be frustrating to realize that you could have gotten a better deal out of that certain trade, it is good to keep in mind that value remains relative. Trade what you want for what you think it is worth, and do not hesitate to negotiate in all cases.

>Some times, newer traders are instantly bashed and as a previous newbie myself, it is quite hard to find trades and such when you are just starting out w

An egypt based region

hi guys i thought it would be a cool idea if a region was based on egypt as egypt has a lot of iconic areas e.g the river nile and pyramids there could also be a lot of old pokemon that could be encountered in this region pokemon like cacturne, maractus, flygon, hippopotas, and camerupt to name a few there are also a large amount of animals that can be used that live in egypt heres a list

  • Ruppell's fox
  • birds of prey e.g eagles, vultures, falcons, owls and more
  • 30 different types of snakes
  • cactus's
  • Crocodiles (in the nile)
  • turtles (in the nile)
  • scarabs
  • over 100 species of fish (in the nile)
  • weasels
  • roaches
  • ants
  • lizards

which are just to name a few there are problems i see with this and that is that most of the region would be desert based but hey atleast it will get 11/10 from ign XD

Did pretty good this weekend...

https://imgur.com/a/zztDb Based on a tip from a friend, headed to a sunday sale of an entire house that he had previous wandered around this summer. The family was very nice, had a son with special needs and was moving back to israel for better programs for him. When I arrived, there were already 2 resellers picking like vultures, but I realized they weren't exactly game guys since they got distracted over a huge pokemon collection. Gave me enough to browse and pick out a few legendary items, and since the house was in disarray, it was a sale that required a bit of digging. Found some more gems that way. Also of note, I got about 25-30 various rpg strategy guides (i'll put up a pick later), as well as every issue of EGM from 25-231 in great condition. Also got 2 witchblade compediums, the entire city hunter anime series, and 19 graphic novels of the walking dead. $60 total.

I was Complicit In Ruining another Student's Life

Rich(generic name) was always rubbing against the grain, he liked Digimon while the majority of kids played with Pokemon and he defended to his further isolation. He was an adopted child by parents of another race. His appearance was that of a miniature Napoleon Dynamite, punctuated by friendly and sad eyes. He was a social pariah, partly of choice and circumstance. Still he fought the hyena horde valiantly sometimes physically like a ginger freckled lion kitten. Teeth and fist clenched, tears welling but held back in his eyes, and a crimson mane, he was quite the sight.

Then I came along: an outcast by design but not of choice. I was also an orphan and minority in a sea of white faces. The bullying sharks smelled blood the moment I hit the water. They took bites out of me. I was an easier target than Rich. However, I saw Rich's noble defense of Digimon during a playground brawl. It was natural then we formed an alliance of convenience... eventually friendship. For a time it was good.

But I liked Pokemon... Still I pretended to like Digimon for a time for his sake. We stood against the bullies and fought them. Kids have a curiosity and cruelty to them. This mismatch duo of ours, confused them. It wasn't long before their frustrations heightened their attacks. A Thesis defines itself in conflict with Antithesis. The group of bullies grew larger in effort to deal with the 'Ginger and Asian'. We thought allying ourselves would offer greater protection.... it only made us a bigger target. The battles got intense.

I liked Pokemon over Digimon... I was ideologically different from Rich, but by mandates of this alliance forced to defend this untenable position. Slowly I grew tired of the fights. I was more socially savvy than Rich. He kept making moves that kept getting us further ostracized and made us bigger targets. He was incurable in this way for which I admired him and for which I would be helpless but to betray him.

That evil yellow electrical vermin rodent, Pikachu, was designed to appeal to kids. So horribly and seductively cute with rosy red cheeks and adorable mannerisms! Oh, that I saw that stupid mouse. Woe that I did.

But... Rich liked Digimon and defined himself so much in its defense ... Also I couldn't take the incessant bullying that seemed only to increase. Those clever kids, poked and prodded to find any all weaknesses to maximize emotional trauma. Rich shone brightly, and continued to make himself visible.

May 2015 survey results. Part 2: feedback.

[mod]

Context:


Hello /r/SVExchange,

The feedback from the survey was overwhelmingly positive, but this results analysis will focus on addressing the negative feedback we received.

You will find below a breakdown of the survey questions and some quotes of our choosing.


How would you rate the subreddit in general?

>Would be better if inactive users closed their threads.

>Lots of inactive threads and a few users that ignore requests :(

There is not much we can do if people abandon their TSV threads. If you see a TSV thread where the requests are being ignored, please report it to the moderators by clicking on the [report] button below the body of the thread.

>However, what really is annoying, is when people try to claim eggs from giveaways when they point-blank ignore or refuse to hatch other's eggs.

>Really solid subreddit, the only things I don't like are how lots of people demand eggs in giveaways and how many people request for eggs that they don't match in non-FFA giveaways. It gives the impression that a lot of the members of the community are just vultures trying to snag as many shinies as they can.

Users are under no obligation to hatch or give eggs to users whom they do not wish to. Because of this, we see no need to create a rule to force people to maintain a TSV thread.

>Not necessarily an issue with the subreddit itself, but my biggest hatching issue is how difficult it can be to coordinate hatches with people across different time zones. If there could perhaps be some sort of calendar or clock within the subreddit that shows where waking hours overlap, that would be nice, instead of having to link out.

This would be a good idea, but unfortunately it is not possible due to technical limitations: we are unable to use JavaScript on the subreddit.

How would you rate the performance of the moderation team in general?

>I feel the moderators should focus equal attention on both /r/PokemonTrades and /r/SVExchange.

/r/SVExchange runs really well: scams and other issues rarely happen. /r/pokemontrades is more demanding and requires more of our time, but that does not mean we are not paying attention to /r/SVExchange. If it were the case, we would not bother with a

What real life birds are all of the bird Pokemon inspired by?

Basically what the title says. For a little back story, I've had the idea to create a bird team for quite some time now, but I've only recently started looking up movesets and stats and whatnot. Anyway, I want to use a variety of bird species, and I want ones that can be quickly/easily identified. So that spawned my question. Here is a list of all of the final evolutions of each bird Pokemon, and while some are pretty obvious, I'd appreciate it if you guys could help fill in the gap, and fix any that I may have incorrectly identified.

Pidgeot - The name implies that he's a pidgeon, but there's probably some sort of bird of prey that he resembles more.

Fearow - ?

Golduck - A duck (I barely counted him as a bird pokemon though.)

Farfetch'd - Duck

Dodrio - ?

Noctowl - Owl

Xatu - ? (I've always gotten a totem pole feel from Xatu, but I'm not sure if he's based off of any bird in particular)

Delibird - I'm guessing some sort of penguin or puffin, but I'm not entirely sure.

Skarmory - ?

Blaziken - Chicken (again, I barely counted him as a bird. If it wasn't for the design of his previous evolutions, he wouldn't have made the list)

Swellow - Swallow

Pelipper - Pelican

Altaria - ? (Yes, I counted Altaria as a bird. She has a beak, wings, tail feathers, and the Gym Leader in Fortree, who claims to only use birds, has an Altaria)

Empoleon - Penguin

Staraptor - ?

Honchkrow - Crow

Chatot - I'm guessing a parrot, since he can mimic voices.

Unfezant - Pheasant

Archeops - ? (Is he even a representation of an actual species, or just an imagining of what a prehistoric bird may look like?)

Swanna - Swan

Braviary - Some sort of eagle ('murica!)

Mandibuzz - Vulture

Talonflame - Similar to Pidgeot, he represents a robin early on, but later grows to look more like a bird of prey. Maybe some sort of falcon?

Hawlucha - Hawk, though his design is based more on a luchador costume, rather than an actual bird.

Test for those who can't decide between Sword and Shield.

[i]

Which do you like the most ...? (Like using?)

  • Red or Blue?
  • Types strong against Ghost or Fighting type Pokemon?
  • Psychic or Fighting?
  • Larvitar or Deino?
  • Goomy or Jangmo-o?
  • Solosis or Gothita?
  • Vullaby or Rufflet?
  • Drampa or Turtonator?
  • Horse or Bird?
  • Unicorn or Knight?
  • Vulture or Eagle?

If you chose the first option more often than the second, you should get Shield.

If the reverse is true, get Sword.

Keep in mind that this questionnaire is made with the current information we have regarding S and S. If a decision still can't be made, then only waiting for more details will help. (Or buying a double pack. I hear Target has a steelbook edition for preorder.)

^(Rufflet isn't shown as a version exclusive but Vullaby did, so I'll leave it here.)

^(Warning: Possible leaks in following link.)

^(Sableye) ^vs ^(Mawile didn't show up in Serebii so I took it down.)

Historic Points of Interest--Ferrisville

The Gray Man

Here in the Hogan's Gap area is possibly the least known of all ghost towns in the West. Far enough off the beaten track to escape notice from tourists, souvenir hunters and vandals. Ferrisville is protected as a State Historic Park, though you won't find any fancy recreated saloons and hotels, antique shops and general stores or make-believe attractions worthy of Disneyland there. There are no basic services, camping, lodging, food vending or water fountains. There is not even a museum open during the summer to offer items available for sale. No team of rangers visit to maintain the site in a state of "arrested decay". It's off limits to the general public.

At the visitors' centers in Hogan's Gap, the pamphlets showing the various walking trails, picnic areas, and scenic camping spots, will not present its location. Only on maps prior to 1896, would you find any mention of its existence.

That was how I found out there was such a place as Ferrisville, through a faded old map I discovered in a Prince Albert tobacco can nailed to a fallen tree--a map from perhaps a century ago.

I was eight back then and my brother Thomas was seven. We were following a narrow deer trail above this deep river canyon. We weren't even supposed to be up there, our parents would ground us several times over if they had found out. But they were too busy hosting a barbecue party at the time to notice our sudden departure.

After clambering up a small waterfall, we soon noticed shimmering in the forest gloom, an albino redwood tree growing from the remnants of a lightning-struck tree. As I paused at a dinner-platter-sized hole in the stump, I wonder what animal may have lived there. I noticed the nailed-up tin and pried it loose.

As soon as we got back home, I cleaned it. Opening the lid, I began tapping the tin gently to empty what I thought was some tobacco. To my amazement, I found it wasn't tobacco at all but an old faded piece of paper I plucked the folded paper from the tin can and carefully unfolded it. It turned out to be a note detailing what appeared to be a mining claim in some place called Ferrisville.

I had never even heard of Ferrisville. When I started asking questions about it, locals once friendly and knowledgeable about Hogan's Gap colorful past, would suddenly turn distant and taciturn or else, they would change
