We're not actually back, this is all a dream.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 November 2018 - 06:12 PM)

It was, we're just humoring you.

@  Arazyr : (20 November 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I was wondering if that was just me...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 November 2018 - 02:01 PM)

And we are back after that round of Forum downtime.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2018 - 06:30 AM)

Feels like it's been so long since there's been a proper storm that I've been awake for. This one even has pink lightning, which always great.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2018 - 06:22 AM)

So long as he has an R by his name. Even if the R is for "Recepticons"

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Sadly, my first reaction was "And I'm sure way too many people would seriously, unironically really vote for the blatant bad guy and still cheer at him while he's slaughtering the masses because they saw him on TV and he's cool."

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:17 AM)

Someone over at TFW2005 just discovered an old photo of political campaign signs, with one saying "Vote Megatron! Global Domination."

@  Paladin : (19 November 2018 - 07:02 AM)

let's be real. at this rate we're not lasting until 2075.

The rest of the world may build a wall around the US in 2075.

Tell an conservative conspiracy maniac that women are literally the Satan's spawn out to infect humanity with the gender virus that will turn everyone into communist Muslims who eat children, and they will be like, "Well of course! That makes perfect sense!"

Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

@  Pennpenn : (18 November 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Debateable. It's a sunday anyway. Wonder if I'll still feel up and ready to go tomorrow. Don't want to take too many days off leading up to the end of the year.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2018 - 08:22 AM)

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 06:27 PM)

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

I'm going to start this thread in hopes to actually keep things outside the video game discussions thread. I know quite a few of you will appreciate that.
 
So am I the only one who's slowly being drawn back into the show? I got curious in the last season when Charizard was coming back and watched a few episodes then but Iris and Cilan really struck me as annoying characters at the time. Yet now here in XY we have Clemont and Bonnie traveling with Ash and Serena soon to join up. Part of me likes the reverse of the May and Max situation, and I'm finding Bonnie somewhat adorable. After this weeks episode it seems like she's the Animes way of translating the Pokemon Amie feature since shes grooming and playing with the Pokemon. Really a great way to try and bring that to the show IMHO. Clemont takes the Brock role this time and seems like he's gonna have a running gag of having a machine hidden in hammer space for any occasion that will shortly break down and explode. Kind of a fun change compared to Cilans connoisseur comments. Serena seems like a mix between May and Dawn so far, but since we haven't seen all too much of her it's hard to see what she will be in the group dynamic yet.
 
Love to see TR in a good return to form. Bringing back Wobbuffet was great and James getting another tag along Pokemon (Inkay) again seems like it's his style.  Love the motto montage they have this season as well. But I wouldn't mind them having the Black Uniforms still on occaision. What was the story with that last season anyways?
 
As far as Pokemon, it looks like Dedenne despite being caught by Clemont is going to be Bonnies main Pokemon. It's cute and the smaller sizes gives her a cute Pika Clone of her own.
 
Edit to finish my thoughts (had to go get the drive shoveled)- Froakie with Ash seems like we might end up getting repeat of the rebellious mon if his attitude from his initial episodes continues on in the show.. Bunnelby just sounds weird to me.

I haven't watched the anime for a while, so I don't know what's official, but I always imagined "deh-den," with the final "e" silent, since that would be the French pronunciation and Kalos is a fantasy version of France.

Never stopped following the anime, just lost track for a while after it moved to Cartoon Network, but I can safely say...I love the new season, and I'm pleased that they're doing a remix of the original tune for this season's theme song.

 

I'm pleasantly surprised that they're going back to Ash only having one starter, and equally surprised that they're sticking with him having the Water-type starter rather than the Grass-type. My only annoyance is that things aren't quite moving as quickly this season as they were last season, but that's not a bad thing.

The black uniforms came about as part of a controversial make-over for the pair. The idea was to make Jessie & James competent, and in fact they very nearly scored a number of victories over the course of Black & White; more often than not, it was a cheap deus ex machina that stopped them instead of anything Ash & co. did. However, the team was reverted back to their old selves for the final installment of B&W.

 

With Iris, it was strongly hinted at (but not outright stated) that she was an orphan and that the mon around her village raised her Jungle Book-style. The village elder made sure that she received at least a basic education, but by Iris' own admission she hadn't even seen a book (let alone a textbook) until she was sent off to a boarding school. Although she's a little more "world-wise" due to being somewhat older than Ash, she has virtually no book-learning under her belt and is almost completely helpless in most social situations. I'm guessing that the writers were trying to portray her as a 180 from the other girls to that point (who were increasingly "girly" and who often simply reacted to what the male characters around them did).

 

**

 

As far as X&Y goes -

 

I'm not entirely keen on Ash's first capture (aside from Froakie) being Fletchling. Unless there's someone I'm forgetting, since day one a flying type - or a mon that can fly - has always been the #1 or #2 catch Ash makes. And while Fletchling is perhaps the most "appealing" of the flying types this round, we already had one Fletchling that belonged to Serena's mom; a bit of variety might have been nice, even if only so far as to make Ash's Fletchling a shiny.

You gotta give him a flyer. Be harder to do the whole search and rescue plot without one. And in game Fletchling is most likely the first Kalos flyer your going to see.

 

I saw a few of the earlier BW episodes and saw TR were actually acting a lot less like themselves. Didn't mind them having somewhat competent ideas but it did feel a bit off after a decade of them being complete screwballs. Still I think they should occasionally use the Black outfits for night or stealth shenanigans.

They were acting like their first two appearances. You know, like an actual threat. Enemies who you might actually fight in a Pokemon battle that didn't immediately boil down to Ash's Pokemon immediately taking them out with one hit.

 

I want to see Ash using an actually strategy to take on an enemy Pokemon. I don't want to see enemies thrown in at the end of an episode just to pad out an extra minute of screentime with Pikachu throwing thundershock at a giant mech or balloon to immediately win. You want to make them humorous? Fine. But if you're going to have them as villains, then make them a threat.

 

I. Want. Conflict.

 

You may argue that their initial B&W appearences were out of character, and maybe they were. But those episodes succeeded in doing what this show hadn't accomplished since season 1; they made Team Rocket an actual threat that had to be taken seriously by Ash and company. And that, that did the impoeeible for me; it made me actually interested in this show again after not caring about it at all in years. Because I finally knew that every time I saw Team Rocket in an episode, I'd also see Ash needing to use all his skill as a Pokemon trainer to defeat them, which is what I might actually watch this show or play the games for to begin with.

Another thing of note for B&W is that they were taking direct orders on each assignment, either from Giovanni himself (via his secretary) or a scientist who they were assigned to assist.

 

However, at the end of the Meloetta arc, Giovanni is severely injured and has to be rushed back to headquarters for treatment, the scientist and secretary in tow. At this point, Team Rocket is out on their own again... and acting just like the comedy relief they've always been.

 

In other words, they're good at following the plans of others, but are terrible at coming up with their own.

One thing I'd like to see in the anime?

 

An anime-exclusive gym leader whose mon are such a brick wall that he has never lost in the however many years he's been a gym leader.

 

[Mentor]: "The strongest gym? That would be the _____ Gym."

 

Ash: "Really? Tell me all about it!"

 

[Mentor]: "At this gym, you don't get badges for winning... because no one has ever won. You get your badge based on how long you last and how gracefully you accept your inevitable and potentially embarrassing defeat."

 

Ash has never really faced an "impossible" opponent in the series. In the rare events where he hasn't won a badge or frontier token, he won on the second go-around. He always beats his rivals whenever it's the final showdown, no matter how many time he loses beforehand. He also typically gets pretty darn far in whatever tournaments or leagues he competes in, and has this success as a consolation prize.

 

But he has never really been faced with the prospect of hitting a wall that he has no way to maneuver around.

Yes. After he caught it with Weezing.

He always beats his rivals whenever it's the final showdown, no matter how many time he loses beforehand. He also typically gets pretty darn far in whatever tournaments or leagues he competes in, and has this success as a consolation prize.

 

But he has never really been faced with the prospect of hitting a wall that he has no way to maneuver around.

 

I seem to vaguely recall the guy who beat him in the Sinnoh League - the dude with the Darkrai and Latios, I think his name was Tobias - being pretty dang undefeatable. Seriously, Ash was the closest that guy had to a real fight in that entire tournament - took down those who and got his entire team dropped in the process - and he's probably never gonna rematch with the guy.

 

Also, one thing about undefeatable opponents...they're boring. I don't want to see Ash go up against an undefeatable opponent because we already know the outcome - he loses. Sure, Ash might do some crazy stunts, come up with an excellent strategy, bring in his big guns, but if we know he's going to lose, then that's just not interesting. You would have a Boring Invincible Antagonist. It'd be like the fight with the Black Knight in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" if the guy didn't get his limbs hacked off and just kept killing whatever random dude came along. Seriously, it'd get old. Foes exist to be defeated, not to stand around going "hur dur dur, I'm so badass you'll never beat me" and then demonstrate why and go "hur dur dur, try as many times as you like, you'll never win". If I'm Ash, I'd say, "Screw this" and have Charizard turn him into a crispy critter.

 

Reminds me of why I don't like the Borg in "Star Trek" all that much, I feel pretty much the same way about them. Makes me glad they got taken out of play permanently in the novels, but that's beside the point.

 

Anyway, back on topic; I don't like your idea, I find it to be stupid and boring, and I look forward to this weekend's episode.
