    I'm impressed by Skeledirges design as the fire looks somewhat like hair, thus they somehow managed to make a reptile look like it's balding.

      Skeledirge looks like six designers went into a room with completely different ideas and reached an extremely awkward compromise after a violent debate. It's a fire breathing crocodile, clown, candy skull, electric clarinet, Bird, mic stand, ghost, skeleton singer.

    • techno156
      techno156 2 months ago +37

      With the quality of the game's code being what it is, I wouldn't be at all surprised if there was a bug that meant that gym badges correlated to shiny rate, or something along those lines.

    "It's weird that people in the past believed in magic". Meanwhile there are fairy pokemon and psychic pokemon that can use telekinesis and float without wings. There is no reason for them not to believe in what they see every day.

      @Olliekay Rules that are really arbitrary and don't mean much.

    • Olliekay
      Olliekay 2 months ago +5

      @Tasorius I assume magic is basically shit that goes against whatever rules that govern the Pokémon universe, maybe they're attainable considering literally god exists but maybe people used to believe in some other type of traditional magic or some shit

    • Tasorius
      Tasorius 2 months ago +3

      @Olliekay So what they call magic must be really insane, given what Pokemon can do.
      Then again the main definition of magic refers to a specific power, rather than something incomprehensible or impossible. That later meaning is a lesser definition.

    • AliciaYPhoenix
      AliciaYPhoenix 2 months ago +11

      I did the same. The difference: all my pokemon were caught at lvl 10 and below then evolved and heavily leveled, so my team actually obeyed. Will state that I avoided it because the rival made me mad.

    I’m so bad at names I genuinely didn’t even realize that Penny and Cassiopeia were supposed to be “different people”. I just thought it was obvious that the nerdy kid you save from Team Star bullies was the hacker who wants you to take them down.

    • Midnight Capricorn
      Midnight Capricorn Month ago +9

      @saffalilac Plus, there's the fact that Cassiopeia is the name of a constellation, which is made up of multiple stars... a team of stars, you might say.

    • saffalilac
      saffalilac 2 months ago +22

      There’s also this distinction between Cassiopeia and the “big boss.” Hmmm, the Team Star folks had a sixth friend, and Cassiopeia over here is acting all sad after each battle?! Could they be related?!?

    Now that I'm done with the game I can say this : this is a fuckin masterpiece and it's a fuckin crime that it was pushed to come out too fast. The graphical bugs really ruined its reputation and it's incredibly sad cuz the writing is incredible. I finaly did the final boss and I'm amazed. I caught the secret legendaries and I adore their design. I can't say it enough but I *adore* the character design. This game is to me, 2nd place in storyline alone after Black and White. If they hadn't crammed it for Christmas this could have been the best.

      @Joe Marais It _is_ rushed, you half-wit. GameFreak doesn't decide the release schedule because they can't. They have to do tons of merchandising contract work which sets an absolute limit on a deadline for the game's release.

    • noémie maurice
      noémie maurice 2 months ago +6

      @Joe Marais Here's the thing : The game is great. My point is that it could have been better. The majority of it is awesome. Graphics is the only lacking thing (and maybe difficulty) but everything else is awesome. Polish is what gets sacked when the game is rushed and polish is what it needs. My point was that it is a good game but that the presentation made people think it was worse then it is.

    • Joe Marais
      Joe Marais 2 months ago +1

      It wasn't "Rushed", game freak just blows at making 3D games and will never put in the money and resources to make good games cause y'all still buy them with the same tired "this game would be great if the majority of it wasn't terrible, so its a great game"

    Him avoiding doing the third gym is akin to someone procrastinating doing homework. “Welp, I should do dishes before doing Homework. Oh, looks like I need to take out the trash! Oh no! Looks like it’s already bedtime, time to stay up binging Netflix.”

    The persona music at the end is a metaphor for how much a player has to grind for a shiny, much like in how in Persona there is a definitely intended in-game strat of grinding mementos for a level 67 Black Frost.

      @Vivil2 I remember a promo showing an egg was found in the basket but I know nothing else rn lol. In any case, it's fine to criticise what you don't enjoy about games. Nothing is perfect and without feedback no one can move forward. Now what people do with said feedback is a different story 😅

    • Vivil2
      Vivil2 2 months ago

      @Haze Here I haven't done any of the classes. Are you suggesting that breeding is done in picnics, not daycares, cause I legit searched everywhere for one, and thought I was losing my mind.
      Edit I caved and looked it up... there is no daycare... it is tied to the picnic mechanic.
      Also for everyone here, i don't have a problem with the game overall. I actually like it alot, but this gym badge thing is a serious issue that shouldn't have been in the game, in fact they could probably change it in a patch (not that they're going to)

    • Haze Here
      Haze Here 2 months ago +2

      @Vivil2 all I know is it has something to do with picnics. I intend to get all the gym badges someday then learn how to get eggs in one of the classes in school. Most likely from the Home Ec class with mr. Daddy

    • Vivil2
      Vivil2 2 months ago

      @Haze Here yeah I found them eventually but expecting people to do all that to circumvent an arbitrary restriction is still absurd.
      Also I still cant find the daycare. So I still can't breed even if I wanted to. I might have to look it up after I finish the post game.

    • Vivil2
      Vivil2 2 months ago

      @Ribbon they can still make it harder, to catch without the badges, but also you get TMs from each gym, and the pokemarts and other shops sell more stuff to you based on badges.
      These are already in the game. Do you need more?
      Maybe get a boost to exp gain for pokemon below a certain level so you can catch up stragglers.

    The "RT method" is simply save scumming. It's existed in gaming since the oldest games. XD

      @Haze Here That makes sense but it's also sad cause that stops many amazing clipable moments from happening.

    If I had a nickel for every time RTGame enacted a genocide on sheep like creatures in an attempt to find a unique variant of said sheep-like creatures through brute force within a single area and with little to no optimization, I would have two nickels...
    Which isn't a lot but its weird that it happened twice.

    I kinda how powerful yet unreliable Dan's team is, it makes boss fights actually loseable and it feels cool when NPCs are reaching a climax and the actually do have a fighting chance. Most pokemon often feels like whatever story is irrelevant because big numbers and rock paper scissors rules and no one ever actually stands a chance.

    • Bengal404

      It's kinda like a glass cannon team, but instead of 'walking attack stat, paper-thin defense', it's 'every turn there's like a 50% chance that the cannon says 'fuck you' and explodes broken glass into your face'. It's hilarious and I love it

    Pokemon always has good soundtracks, but I stand by Scarlet and Violet really went that extra mile
    It's kinda weird seeing such reputable musicians/artists like Ed sheeran and Toby Fox officially partnering with pokemon - but I'll be damned if they didn't nail it music wise

    I just got Violet. The first Mareep I caught was Shiny, and I immediately named it RT Candy.
    I know this means that I'll never find another Shiny.
    Worth it.

      @Sadistic Insomnia To be fair, that's a switch thing, there have been reports of the switch having occasional crash issues since day one. Gamefreak just made it much worse through their inability to optimize their game being taken to new levels.

      @Sadistic Insomniaare you fast traveling at all? Apparently there’s some sorta memory leak but restarting the game and fast traveling helps. I haven’t had any crashes because I fast travel periodically.

    • Inquisitor Thomas
      Inquisitor Thomas 2 months ago +3

      @Sadistic Insomnia I personally haven’t experienced any crashes during my run, but my Switch is also less than a year old, so maybe my system is just fresher or is more robust.
