@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

KUP!

Good idea.

Bulbapedia lists all these optional rules and all that, most of them kind of unnecessary (though I chose to take the rule banning duplicate captures so I wouldn't end up with a lot of Bidoofs).

Asking about something even Bulbapedia doesn't explain and assuming there's no rules for it is cheating...?

I'm not anywhere CLOSE to the Great Marsh yet!


The Wiki doesn't (though perhaps there should be such an article), but the forums have a rather extensive thread on the subject.

Well lets get some of our own rules going

how about..


- No clones! you can only have 1 of each Pokemon. however catching a type that has already fainted and "died" is ok to replace it after its passed on
- In each new Route, Cave and Building you have 3 chances to catch a Pokemon. this means if a type appears you already have you have an additional 2 chances to get another type. if you fail to get a new poke or fail to catch anything in 3 gos stiff bickies no Pokemon for you!
- only allowed to have a maximum of 10 potions on you at any time eg (10x Potion, or 5x Potion 5 x Super potion, or 10 x Hyper, or 2x Potion 4 x super 4 x hyper. get it?)
- All Pokemon must be nicknamed
- You are allowed to catch Evos. e.g. if you have a Poliwag and a Polywhirl pops up you can catch it.


yeah these are stupid rules but nothing is final icon-waspy.gif

American/Canadian Celebi event date confirmed:

http://www.pokemongo.../#/news/celebi/
http://www.pokemongo.../#/news/celebi/

Feb. 21st through March 6th. No idea how they're going to manage that, considering the fact the distribution cartridge won't give out Celebi unless the system date is between the 27th and the 6th; but meh, I guess that's for Gamestop employees to puzzle over.

I shouldn't of done my nuzlocke on Ruby. I forgot that so many trainers early on in the game use full restores!!! its not like they are all Lance from the E4!!

The Rich Boy and the Lady with the Zigzagoons in the early routes have Full Restores, because they're... rich, I guess.

After my shiny rage I've decided to do a Nuzlocke run on a spare copy of Fire Red. For the safari zone/great marsh, the most lenient suggestion I can make is to count each of the zones within as a separate route which should give you something like 4~5 attempts since the regular rules of catching don't apply within the zone.

Right now I still at Viridian City and my team is:
Halfshell (Squirtle lv10)
Ozma (Mankey lv8)
Rattletrap (Rattata lv7)

Decided not to go the traditional route of naming my Squirtle, Yertle just in case the worst happens

But isn't the point of the game to try and catch one of everything? Aren't we standing on one point and defeating another in the process?

I'm pretty sure that the point of this kind of challenge is to beat all of the gyms and whatnot despite the handicap, not to catch 'em all.

I'm defying the Legendary rule (because hug them, a Legendary counts as a Pokemon and it's not like they're so gamebreaking that having one of the damn things will suddenly make a Nuzlocke run easy).

After all, the only one I'd even run into in my Diamond run is Dialga, unless I actually go search out Giratina and catch nothing else in that cave.

A rule I'm applying on my Nuzlocke run will be to only use items I find or receive in the field; only buying pokeballs of various varieties. Those items that I do find can be used in or out of battle though.

Hornesto (lv4 Weedle) just joined the team but his addition comes with a heavy heart. A bastard trainer's Weedle managed to poison both Rattletrap and Ozma in the Viridian woods, and with the single potion I had found I had to choose between life and death for my two partners on who could survive to the pokecenter; I chose Ozma.

Halfshell (Squirtle) lv10
Ozma (Mankey) lv8
Hornesto (Weedle) lv4

RIP
Rattletrap (Rattata) lv4-8

Poor little Plague (Zubat) bought the farm. It was pretty funny to turn around and see what he was up to, too. "Plague is staring intently at you."

Up to Ilex Forest now. Slowly making progress in between doing other stuff.

Scramble (Togepi) lvl 7
Sizzle (Mareep) lvl 14
Therazane (Geodude) lvl 17
Skithiryx (Giratina) lvl 14
Lockjaw (Totodile) lvl 15

RIP
Packrat (Rattata) lvl 4-5
Plague (Zubat) lvl 2-10
