    What, no one wants to say anything? Pssh! Fine.

    We finally got a decent rainstorm after a very nasty dry spell. Too bad it put out my campfire so early. I was enjoying my marhmallows.

    ...Is it a good thing to know that I have no clue what Smogon is?

    That doesn't work forever, eventually they could get curious enough to look themselves.

    And what are the chances that they'd be AT THE EXACT SAME SUMMER CAMP I mean really.

    I've mixed feelings about Smogon's effects on competitive Pokemon. On the one hand, their bans are based on play-testing and consensus among experienced strategists, and have the purpose of removing from standard play those few Pokemon that are so good that you'd need half a team or more of sacrifices just to manage them, and in that regard Smogon strategists are shooting for the practical version of the ideal of having a Pokemon game where all of your Pokemon will be on more or less an even footing with all those of your opponent. That's great. On the other hand, this kind of meticulous and stringent stratification of Pokemon itself has a centralizing effect such that there still end up being a few very specific Pokemon that dominate any level of play you engage in, and it does unfortunately foster the harsh attitude whereby some playstyle or choice of Pokemon not in accord with this standard is prone to being written off as inferior or unfair. That's not as great.

    It's a laudable goal, trying to balance the Pokemon metagame, but their methods don't work so well in regard to the way the result still ends up quickly becoming stale and predictable. I think the only way to successfully balance the metagame would be for Gamefreak to overhaul individual stats and Abilities so that lower-tier Pokemon could have a higher general probability of pairing off feasibly against higher-tier Pokemon. As it stands, there are just some Pokemon who have been dealt a better hand than others (see: the already dominating Volcarona given both Roost and Giga Drain), and this makes them naturally centralizing forces that either control gameplay or earn a ban by those wishing to balance that gameplay.

    How satisfying it'd be to perform such a full-Pokedex overhaul myself~ ^_^

    It would be sort of almost believable if they had actually lived on the same continent, but the fact that the mother sent her ten year old daughter to a summer camp in America where her twin JUST HAPPEND to be is a tad out there.

    Magic is the only acceptable answer for anything.

    Maybe she wanted her daughter to have some American culture, and rather than send her to a boarding school or something, she sent her to a summer camp.
    That's really not how I'd want my kid to get their culture, but. Disney logic.

    Redmage really does try to friend every new female user. He PM'd me right after I joined asking me what I looked like, how old I was, etc. He eventually gave up after he found out he wasn't going to get any serious answers out of me. The dude's harmless to anyone who can see he's a creep from the minute he contacts them, but I have a feeling he could be dangerous for younger girls on this site who may not know better.

    Read the thread title.

    If you want to continue arguing with someone on the Internet about a Pokémon website, please pursue this wish elsewhere.

    Guys, I swear, if I see the word "technically" used incorrectly and superfluously again, I'm going to break something.

    "technically"


    Does anyone know why the activity on the internet tripled since a couple days ago?

    Last I heard, people can discuss anything in this thread. So technically, they don't have to go anywhere else.

    I don't remember Brumrha being like that? I remember he was an arrogant, ragey dick wad, though.

    adventures in frat land is my favorite tumblr ever

    this is me on sppf most of the time. so don't send me small questions. send them to kreis :)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)
