@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.

I now have a copy of this. Cheaply (I love you, ebay).

White Version definitely not because I'm white.

No idea about the gyms or anything about the game really, like it should be.

Chosen Snivy, because it looks refined. In a 'I went to Eton' way. And the other two just look..well, the pig is far to cheerful looking, and a fire type pig? That's bacon. The other one is just...odd.


Ah good choice. Serperior is damn awesome as long as he isn't up against his weaknesses.

Serperior has a pretty weak movepool, but I'm not that big of a fan of any of the starters really, and the snake packs a huge punch if you can get a DW one.

I usually find grass types not so good. however Lilligant seems pretty good especially with the fact that Petal Dance has become so much stronger and Lilligant doesn't even become comfused. Quiver dance is a good stat raising move as well.

Lilligant is pretty good with Quiver/Petal Dance, also has a weak movepool though.

I like Sawsbuck for a grass type. Decent Speed with Chlorophyll, Swords Dance access, plus a wide movepool including STAB Return and Wood Horn plus Wild Charge, Megahorn, and Jump Kick, among others.

Also, Whimsicott. Annoying as hell.

Well maybe Serperior doesn't have the best moveset but I mostly use pokemon I like as opposed to whos the best. Out of the three new starters, Snivy was the only one I didn't recoil at the sight of XD
After seeing all three fully evolved...yea I stand by Serperior lol.

Oh man, I feel the need to say something here.

Every Pokemon game from now on needs to be more like this. I love it, I love it, I love it. Best generation so far. I'll go so far as to say this usurps Jotoh as my favorite reigion because I cannot get enough of Pokemon Black and White. it's just so awesome. I can't think of like anything about it that's wrong. No Pokemon from previous generations? More variety for us! And when you have stuff as awesome as the Pokemon in B/W, who needs previous gens? Unova has stuff like Whimsicott, Hydreigon, and Meloetta. Anything more is superfluous~

I still think GSC was a better era, but this is fairly good.

Woobat is pissing me off highly. It's a disgrace to Zubat.

I'm annoyed about the 'event only' stuff. I just want to buy the whole game, and be able to access everything. It's ridiculous. Then again, the whole 'trade to evolve' is annoying as well.

Way too many dragon-types these days.

The return of a more standard 'triple legendary' is nice.

Rustling grass and the like is neat.

Acrobatics on Archeops is crazy.

Got an egg with Larvesta hatching, I'm assuming it'll be good.

Emolga is cute.

Lucky egg and exp share fairly early is good times, levelling seems fairly slow.

Ice-cream cone is still a joke. As is Trubbish.

Team Plasma are a joke...

Reusable TMs are brilliant.

I could go on.

Imo, Plasma is the best team in the series history. I could see an argument for Team Rocket out of nostalgic purposes, but Team Plasma actually asks questions that could make the player wonder.

Plot details (Click Here To Hide/Show Text)

Besides Ghetsis's manipulations of the team, the other members like N actually believe that the freeing of (or reducing the dependence on) Pokemon is the correct course of action. They are the first team whose actions could actually have merit depending on point of view.


And the others (Magma and the like) are just lol.

Possibly the most overrated game(s) this year.
The story is lame, gyms are dumb, the new pokemon are... well, let's just say they're weird. I felt awkward fighting that punk pokemon. It looks way too human. Is there an explanation for this? Did I mention it's very linear? But then again all pokemon games are. That's a con in my book. Who's idea was it to add in ALL pokemon at the end of the game? It makes the pokemon I caught beforehand useless, considering 1st gen is superior. tongue.gif
Though, by the time I unlocked that part of the map I already got bored. After you finish the storyline it's just grinding every day until you're strong enough to participate in pro tourneys or something. NTY I've a life lol.

Yeah, I guess most of what I consider cons were present in all other pokemon games.
You'd think they would have fixed basic elementary stuff like this after a freaking decade. For example, linearity. Why not have two paths that lead you to the same place? First one being a forest full of bugs, the other one being.. I dunno, a bridge full of birds or something.

Exploration seriously needs some improvement. Am I the only one who thinks the map is even smaller than the previous game?

But now I'm ranting. See you dudes later.
