I heard the shiny Gengar was released in a bunch of other countries already, so i figured it would eventually make it's way here in one way or another. And while i'll gladly add it to my nice collection of Shinies in my Bank Account, i really do not give a crap over Gengar and its Mega forme and however powerful it may be.

 

On the other hand, i am really excited for Diancie finally getting released. I'm still curious as fuck as to what the thing's deal is and it's whole relation with Carbink with that "Mutation" angle. I wonder if this also means we'll be getting the next movie soon.

Because all is right with the world.

Okay, but this is the kind of socialist bullshit that makes me stop playing the games.

 

I could spend time finding the perfect ghastly and even getting a shiny version of one, but if I had spent that time playing the game it would all be wasted when everyone has one.  As long as none of the events become exclusive to RubySapphire I don't think I'll pick up those games because I really don't see the point in trying if they're just gonna let everyone feel like a special superstar this much.

There's 718 species, and giving away a shiny of one of them is unfair?

Will it come in a faggoty commemorative ball? If it does, you'll be able to tell your straight-gangsta Gengar from the weaksauce-promofag ones.

So, you know how in the X and Y games, the pokemon Pumpkaboo can come in different sizes? Well, the rare largest size is being distributed online starting today and running for the entire month of October in celebration of Halloween. Furthermore, there will be an online tournement which will require all participants to have the super-sized pokemon's evolved form on their team.

What the fuck. I didn't know Pumpkaboo came in so many different sizes/forms. I knew it had different sizes, but I thought those were evolutions.

 

Man, Pokémon nowadays has WAAAAY too many alternate-form pokémon. There's nothing special about them anymore because they don't treat them with care. Shit like this runs Pokémon into the ground for me.

Seriously? Aesthetic variations run it into the ground? Not everything has to be significant or "special", and stuff can be just for fun. It makes sense that would be variations between Pokémon of the same species, so I don't see what harm their is in random aesthetic variations for random species of Pokémon...

It ruins the iconic look of the pokémon. They don't have defined appearances anymore. Before the last few generations, aesthetic variations were what made that pokémon unique and interesting. Nowadays, tons of pokémon have that shit, so it completely kills the novelty of the pokémon being unique for its alternate look. It's trying too hard to make them all cool or whatever, which I conversely see as them shitting all over what Pokémon once was. Each generation they get further from that with their increasingly shitty pokémon designs. That's why this every-other-poke-has-alternate-forms bullshit, along with everything else that craps on its origins, is slowly driving the series into the ground, "for me." I used to love the pokémon and learn every single one of their names. For the past 2 or 3 generations, there have been quite a few of them whose names I never learned, and, as you can see from my previous post, was also completely unaware of their alternate forms. Every time I turn around, there's another fuckin' poke with shittons of different variations. If it weren't for that event recently, I don't know when I would have realized that there were shitloads of Vivillion forms (or more than 1, for that matter). Also, I probably wouldn't have learned that shit's name, either.

Okay, you do realize it looks exactly the same. The different sizes are just upscaling the model a tad bit. Hell, i didn't even realize there were different at first.
