And the Gintendo article of the year so-far goes to Drunka.

Well written piece, Drunka, albeit you'll be utterly unsurprised to learn that I disagree. RBY had the mystery at the time - now we, and anybody coming to play them, knows them like the back of their hand. And while certain aspects do speed the game up, they're held back by things like the lack of shortcut buttons, or having to dive into menus to find the monster with CUT.

I definitely see, and agree, with why they would have been the best Pokémon games given their release era though.

See, for me, those occasions are not so common as to bother me, whereas the excessive introductions and battle animations in some later games are.

Different priorities, I guess, or wonky memories from one of us (probably me). But then, I like the flashy battle animations. I don't like the menu-searching.

Also, no running shoes! Imagining Pokémon without running shoes is like... well, imagining Pokémon without a quick-cycle button.

I have never minded how long it takes to get the Bicycle out, because the cycling music is always so joyful - just like actual cycling. Grin

In other news, I hope we've all got our Mew codes from GAME. And whoever's dispensing them in Australia. Thumbs Up!

That is rather cool,

This maybe the best place as I've got three spare Mew codes if anyone wants one.

That is very cool.

I'll tell you what I want: a poster of all 722 Pokémon. It doesn't seem to exist. I'm gonna have to gather a few up, generation by generation, I reckon.

A sort of Pokécollage, Drunka? Nice one - sounds like a great project. Thumbs Up!

I got me a Mew, mas, thanks - I understand we can get Celebis next month. Quite up for that! Grin

I have returned from scouring the wide web, and I report mission success!  



Download link to image because every image sharring site is geuine trash and compresses it.

And here's the other image in uncompressed glory too while I'm at it!

My writing group is planning a trip to the filmies to go and see that modern classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. One of the members now wants to write Pride and Prejudice and Pokémon, which I for one would read. Starring Elizabeth Banette and Fitzwilliam Darcycuno...

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a Wynaut.

Litten's evos are excellent; Popplio's are "what sea lions can we find in pop culture".



And this one's for Athrun. Wink

Fun fact: cats eat birds and fire burns grass Razz


Jokes aside, does anyone else feel a little dirty having a cute young baby pokemon swearing?
