    Thanks for making me feel like an idiot, bro...

    You shouldn't feel like an idiot. It's a little bro's duty to annoy the heck outta the sis, after all. xD

    So, about that "scoop of the Century..."

    You know what that thing needs? Some pimped-out rims and a hydraulics system! :P

    Naturally Symptoms include urges to cosplay when you go grocery shopping or to the local Wendy's or Target, and spending copious amounts of time on Deviantart (virtual Artist's Alley) and sites like HobbyLink Japan (virtual Dealer's Room).

    Actually, it'll also give me time to decide who to cosplay as. And also time to order me a new cosplay wig (my current one is looking pretty tangled and trying all the online tutorials to untangle it only made things worse).

    With that said, I'm kinda hoping there's a "ballerina" trainer class in X/Y so I can parade around the con in a ballerina costume and my Meowth plushie without it being confused for a Princess Tutu cosplay.

    Another option is just pinning a small red "R" to my suit jacket and going as Giovanni. Again with said Meowth plushie.

    Well, the vast majority of the userbase is strictly from the USA.

    If I had to chance a guess at his location, it's probably Belize or something like that.

    Um, what?

    Members of this site live across the country and around the world. And many of these fugitives are captured because someone, totally unrelated to the perp, happens to recognize them after spotting them in a public place like a store or restaurant. One does not have to "know" him on a personal level to recognize him in the grocery store and report him to the police.

    Oh, and he hasn't served any time for his crime yet. Until he does, for all intents and purposes, he's received "nothing" until he is caught. And I don't discuss politics on this blog. It's even messier than when I discuss Pokemon here.

    Is this of 'actual' importance? Are you suggesting that people of PC will know this man?

    Sure he's scammed a lot of money, shouldn't we be more concerned about the people/government officials who scam money from us all the time and get nothing?

    X/Y Info dump Thoughts and Opinions (WARNING: To Catch A Predator Content)

    1) I am into fan fiction, but honestly, as of my last story I go beyond not having Pokemon as friends. I completely cut the Pokemon themselves out of the battles. The trainers in my story battle with firearms, automobiles, bar stools, pool sticks, and good 'ol hand-to-hand combat. And I'd really like to see a spin-off game based on Grand Theft Auto featuring only the trainers from the Pokemon world. No Pokemon at all.

    2) And I happen to think the whole "grin and bear it and try to pretend nothing is wrong" attitude is pretty annoying too. Not at first, but when I actually try the product/service out for myself and it turns out to have serious issues that nobody bothered to bring to anyone's attention.

    Have you by any chance seen this post? I give credit where credit is due, but at the same time I don't sugarcoat things when they don't meet my expectations. Doesn't matter if it's Pokemon, my bank, my college, or my internet provider. By your logic, if I read reviews of a restaurant where people are alleging that the place is roach infested and employees are not washing their hands or properly cooking food, I should happily go there, and invite my family/employer/significant other.

    Hell, I just wrote a hotel review where I gave the place a 5/5 rating. Even in that review, I raised complaints about the beat-up toilet seat and watered-down juice at the continental breakfast. But, amazingly, I haven't had the hotel management accuse me of being nasty and vindictive because I mentioned a few things that weren't up to standard. Shocking, I know!

    3) It's funny. I get blasted for liking a human Pokemon character (in fact, with the same kinds of "you must be a pedo" accusations), and everybody turns the other cheek. Funny how things go so much differently when the tables are turned.

    Personally I think it's the manner of some of the complaints. Of course no game is perfect. But comparing a feature to what seems to be a sexual predator joke is rather taking it to an extreme that wouldn't cross most people's mind to begin with (especially if you saw the trailer - it involved stuff like feeding the Pokemon. Nothing wrong with that). And for the people who are interested in it, statements like this:
    Quote:
    I can only imagine this feature was created by someone with a really weird fetish. Needless to say I will not be engaging in this sort of questionable behaviour.
    can easily be taken for them as 'and if you also like it you too have a weird fetish'.

    If it's intended to be a joke, then it isn't very well presented as one and isn't funny either, I have to say. Matter of attitude as droomph said; it's fine not to like this or that, but these sort of comparisons and statements don't sit well or work well in expressing that.

    As for why I'm comparing Pokemon to tools and weapons, allow me to quote from my profile page:

    I command my Pokemon to accomplish whatever I need them to, they do their required task, and then they go back in storage. Just like any other tool. That is the extent of my "relationship" with my Pokemon.

    Even if this isn't some creepy simulator, the whole premise still goes against my training philosophy as a whole. Then again, so did the whole "Pokemon following you" thing. Then again, I didn't care for HG/SS either.

    And no, at this point, I'm still planning on giving X/Y a try. Nothing revealed has been a deal breaker yet. Plus, I still do enjoy raising up a team of six brutally powerful, efficient weapons to terrifying levels of strength in order to do my bidding, annihilate any opposition, and help me ascend to fame and fortune. In-game, of course.

    But I don't hug and pet them, just like I don't hug and pet my chainsaw.

    Yeah suit yourself, but complaining about how you want the company to make that for you, why not try making one yourself? That's what fangames/fanfiction is for. I think you should really give that a try, because the direction Pokémon is headed is generally accepted to be becoming friends with the Pokémon, and I don't think they're gonna change that anytime soon.

    And your tone is just really negative about Pokémon, that's what so annoying honestly. Have a good attitude, if you're not going to happily give everything a try, just don't. I don't like some of the Pokémon and ridiculous features tbh, but I'll still try it with a good attitude and not repeatedly and publicly decry them long after we've allllllll gotten the point.
