It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

So I went on a little Pokémon buying spree today on my lunch break. I went to the Target near work to get my Oldest her Birthday present, and while i was in the area, I stopped by the good Gamestop, and picked up a ton of clearanced Pokemon figures to go with the ones that I got for the girls. I also got a stuffed Psyduck to round out our stuffed pokemon toys. I was tempted to get the Rowlette, since that was the first pokemon I chose, but they had a toy Diatrix there on clearance, so I got him instead. I told the cashier/manager that my kids just got into Pokemon, he asked me if they play the card game, and I said no, but he gave me three sets of gamestop exclusive Copperajah and Centiskorch cards. Pretty cool of him! Mayube I can use the card game to teach my four year old how to read.

There's already guides. The hardest part is just finding the darn places (and getting them to stay in the damn pokeballs). The puzzles to getting in are actually pretty simple.
 
Regirock: Have the first pokemon in your party hold an everstone.
 
Regice: Have the first pokemon in your party be a Cryogonal (there's plenty to catch close to where the temple is).

Registeel: Whistle at the door (press the left control stick).

Final Regi: have the other three regis in your party. As for the lights on the floor, you have two choices. You can only choose 1.

My first catch in the Crown Tundra was Suicune from the Dynamax Den.

 

Caught Zapdos and Moltres. They patrol around an area, you can either try to run them down or just wait for them to circle back. If you KO them, leave the area and come back, they'll respawn until caught. And by leave the area, just stepping back into the dojo on the Isle of Armor was enough to bring Moltres back, so I assume that anything that causes the map to reload will do.

You can go in with NPCs. Just remember that they're about the same as the regular Dynamax partner NPCs. I had one with a Chansey that kept using Heal Pulse on the enemy. They are Not Smart.

I'm hearing shinies are easier to find in the dynamax legendary minigame. Tho you can't tell they're shiny til after youve caught them and the game gives you the "which single pokemon do you actually want to keep?" BS.

Man one thing I was actually hyped for in the Isle of Armor part has taken a steep down turn. After years of denying us their use giving us access to the Apricorn balls in a repeatable basis for the first time outside the Gen 2 and it's remakes.

 

Lo and behold we get the Cram-O-Matic and I never seem to get anything out of it. Turns out it's a 1% chance to get an Apricorn ball even using 4 Apricorns of the same color. Why does the Pokemon company deny us the simple pleasures!

 

Heck I know some are not even needed being replaced by later normalized balls like the Lure Ball and the later Net and Dive Balls. Most have different and at most times better mechanics but sometimes you just want to be able to catch a Pokemon using a ball without feeling like it's going to bust it open and waste your one chance with it. Can't we just introduce a disciple of Kurt's that can make the Apricorn balls without some horrible lottery chance involved?

Help me. I've not advanced the Crown Tundra story because I'm too busy playing the Dynamax Raid. This is what those raids should have been from the get-go.

 

Also, what's-his-face's daughter is in the pool for NPC trainers to help you out. So there's a chance you'll be in a Raid with her which I thought was a neat touch.

So my Diatrix evolved this afternoon. Woot! Now he is at his final form at level 34. Dude is a beast! I also just hatched my first egg, and it was my first Evee! I then immediately ran into four more of them, but I think I might see if I can get them to breed more. This game is pretty fun to pick up and play for 45 minutes during my lunch break. Definitely enjoying it as my first Pokemon game.

So that Battle royal thing is a bit deceptive.

 

I go in there and get the first tutorial battle over with in one move. I go back for an actual battle with my squad of a level 34 Decidueye, 30 Pikachu, and 27 Psyduck. Each one in urn gets killed in one shot by the same npc before they can do anything. They literally show up and die. Am I missing something here?

Been putting as much time into the Crown Tundra as I can of late. I've completed the first two quests - got the ice horse and the electric Regi, will play through the other game for their opposites - and gone through several Dynamax Adventures. I'm not quite as far along with it as I'd like - got a housemate who's hogging the living room TV - but I am at least making progress.

 

Now if only I could get favorable weather conditions and get one of the Electabuzz and Magmar lines without needing to trade.

Well, I never really spent much time in the Battle Royale, myself.  But, looking it up, it sounds like all the trainers are at level 50.  So, you're still a little underleveled for it.  And even if you reach level 50, it might be a bit like the Battle Tree, where you get set to level 50, but the stats of the Pokemon in there could be a little higher than that.

 

I know it's weird they'd give you access to a facility you can't actually USE right away...but that's just Pokemon for you *shrug*.

 

 

So between the 2 dlc does that cover every available pokemon or are there still some that can't be caught?

According to Serebii, there's still 234 unobtainable Pokemon.  

 

https://www.serebii....btainable.shtml

 

I know some people are speculating they're holding some back for a potential Diamond/Pearl remake, but that's just speculation for now.

 

EDIT:

Just a reminder, the Hat Pikachu Event is set to end tomorrow.   Probably should download those while you still can.

And, yes, you can get all 8 in one game.
