You hear that? That's the best intro song in the whole series.

Discuss Pokemon here I guess.

TV Show is crap. The comics are far better for reasons that I explain and covered in this exceedingly long document.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Vm-7...y=CJ3fkb8N

Quick excerpt from the beginning of it.

[Image: Jkwff.jpg]

Pokemon Special/Adventures is the best thing to happen to Pokemon since the games themselves. The comics are so much better than the show it's infuriating that the show will forever cockblock the the comics from getting their own show.

The comics are split into distinct story arcs, each story arc roughly representing a different generation of the games. Time also passes as the series goes on. Red starts the series as a 12 year old. By the end of Emerald, he and the rest of the first generation characters are 16-17 years old.

While they still are primarily aimed at a younger audience, the comics maintain much more mature themes than the show, and even the games. It starts out pretty simplistic and a little childish, but as the series goes on the events that take place in the world put the main characters in pretty serious situations.

Pokemon was the big thing when I was like... I don't know, 5, 6 or 7... now I just think 'can they not just let it die already'.

Seriously, how many types of Pokemon are there now... and people still wanna "catch em all".

The franchise is just crap to me now.

As I was writing for this thread before my computer so rudely decided to turn off to self-update last night:


I still play the games but I went off the series years ago. I recently rewatched some of the first couple of series, and I have to say that it got really boring really fast after the first series.
The first one was full of building up to the first movie (which was disappointing) ny giving little peeks at mewtwo escaping etc.
Plus I loved it more then Giovanni was mysterious, and as far as I know the
St. Anne > Lost at sea > Island of giant Pokémon
was the only bunch of episodes that ever directly carried on from each other. While I'm not a big fan of story arcs carrying in very long, those are definitely my favourite episodes.

I've never read the manga.
As for the games, I really enjoy them, but nothing sucks the fun out of them more than posting online about them, only to have some competitive battler with a superiority complex nagging me about how I'm not playing the game right or not using the best Pokémon. And saying how the newer games are clearly superior, and dismissing any opinion otherwise as "dumb nostalgia goggles".

My favourite games are Gold/Silver/Crystal/HeartGold/SoulSilver and my favourite Pokémon is Murkrow.

Because Murkrow is awesome.

I don't really like Honchkrow. I don't really get it. Murkrow is supposed to be a witch, since it has the hat and its tail is like a broomstick.

But then it evolves into a mafia don? Murkrow has been retconned into an awesome evil cackling bird to a henchman for the mafia.

One time my family was at a restaurant and there was a guy doing balloon animals. My cousin asked for a Squirtle and the guy actually knew what he was talking about. He made a decent Squirtle balloon animal, but he tied off the balloon at the crotch, giving a whole new meaning to the character's name.

I got rid of it because it was Flying/Dark, meaning its defense against Fighting attacks is weaker compared to other Flying types.

I've started working on a competitive team.

So far I have one Pokémon on level 1 that I intend to EV train when and if I can be bothered and when I've decided on the rest of the team.

I'm thinking a rain dance team but I dunno.

Not including the unobtainable ones like Celebi. (Those not including Mew, Manaphy and Jirachi)

Dragons are fine, but I always chose Squirtle for two reasons:
1) The first gym was rock, and water is rock's weakness.
2) I knew one day he'd become this:

Yes, but does Blastoise become a giant dragon that absolutely fucks your shit if you're not careful?

I beat most of the elite four with a level 70 Charizard and one or two level 50s.

Did nobody else realise that the starter was a sort of difficulty setting? Bulbasaur grows the fastest and is strong against the first two gyms, Squirtle grows at a medium rate and is strong against the first gym but not the second, and Charmander grows the slowestand is weak against the first two gyms.
Come on, someone else must have seen that? In fact, I'm sure that was official, but I can't recall the source.

While I'm sure that's true, is is a bit silly to have a difficulty setting that your players aren't even aware they chose.

A couple more memorable songs from 2.B.A. Master. They're not necessarily good songs, but damn it THE NOSTALGIA:

Am I the only who didn't give a shit about the show?
All I did was play the games.
And kicked ass at them.

I never actually beat the originals.

My excuse is I was 5 when I had them and had no clue what to do.

In my life I have owned Blue, Red, Yellow (w/GBC), Stadium (it counts), LeafGreen and Platinum. I only still have the latter two and I haven't really played Platinum all that much. I did "beat" Red, but I never got all 151.

I actually got Platinum on eBay for like $15 the week it came out, when it was $35 in stores. It wasn't a bootleg or anything, it was 100% legit. Never understood that but I'll take a deal when I can get it.

I was far more into that show than I'm willing to admit here (says the guy who's embeded several songs from the show's soundtrack album). When Gold/Silver came out I sort of lost interest in Pokémon, both the games and the show.
