I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Wife and I finally caught Detective Pikachu...pretty good crowd for a matinee (About a quarter full).

 

It was a good, fun, wholesome film. Had some story beats that came as genuine surprises but looking back at the movie all the clues to said story beats were there from the get go, I appreciate that in a film. The actors had a very "Kid Movie" introduction and acting, but by the time Ryan Renolds hits the screen that seems shaken off.

 

Probably the most fun, for me, was the revelation that Loudred play Dubstep when rabid. Shame we didn't get a Whismur or Exploud, but I'm more than happy my favorite Pokemon line of all time got some representation.

I'd also like to say that this Pokemon kids movie showcases the straight up murder of two Pokemon. That surprised me.

Coincidentally, the Ditto was the creepiest, as was proper.

I thought it was decent.  I didn't much care for the characters, plot, or banter - it was just neat seeing all of the pokemans in live action in the "real world."

I am a little disappoint that they didn't get the original VAs for Psyduck, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, etc..

I really did like the movie and Justice Smith did a great job at selling the material. I know we get a lot of coming of age stories and father and son stories these days, but at least on Tim's side of it I bought it wholesale.

It's probably my movie of the year so far.

I mean, it's unarguably the best video game adaption we've ever gotten.

 

EDIT: It also surprises me how many people don't get the ending. That Tim didn't recognize so-and-so's voice and I'm like he was five or six when his mom died (Maybe supposed to be 10 or 11 given the implications that that's what "ruined" his dream of becoming a Pokemon Trainer but the bed at Harry's apartment feels like it skews younger than that age bracket) and on the nightstand we see a birthday card for Tim that says "Happy 21st".

 

That long apart, I felt it was perfectly reasonable Tim didn't recognize the voice.

I've had a few days of shiny hunting in Y and Alpha Sapphire with no success so I just grab Ultra Sun to get a few Heart Scales from the restaurants for my new Blissey base raised none evolution squad and then I just decide to use the ultra wormhole. The very first thing that happens is I bump into a Naive female shiny Lombre.

Not and still be legitimate, no.  Hacked ones can be traded those ways, but official ones need to be link traded or gotten from a official event.  Mind you, I don't think most of the ones that you can get over WT or GTS would ruin your game nowadays.  They still check enough boxes to be safe, usually.  So, if you just want to fill in holes in your dex, those would still work.

That’s cool. Any news on any potential eeveelutions this generation? I’m guessing a steel type and a dragon type to go with the GoT theme the game seems to have. I’d love a poison type so we would have the full counter to fairy type, but I doubt Nintendo would go with that many new Eevee forms in one go. I’m also thinking we’ll get a new evolution method in combining Pokémon. We’ve had it with legendaries and it was hinted at in US/M. Maybe some of the single form Pokémon will finally get some love. (Looks directly at dunsparce)
