    30 Days of Pokemon: Day 5

    I agree with you Hilda is probably my least favorite female protagonist next to Lyra. I can get she's supposed to be more mature looking than the previous protagonists, but doesn't mean she has to wear such a trashy clothes. Those shorts don't look really comfortable for a Pokemon adventure either.

    30 Days of Pokemon: Day 3

    I'm pretty sure any search of Pokemon fan art on sites like Deviant Art and Pixiv would in fact support my claim. Those two show up in an alarmingly high percentage of them. At least they do when I search for fan art. Just about every day, at least one of the two show up in some new art piece. Now, what other conclusion am I to make from this bizarre occurrence?

    I don't chat about Pokemon anywhere besides on this site. Hell, I hardly ever chat about the subject even on here anymore. I'd rather not chat about this franchise when clearly my opinions are at odds with the other 99.9% of fans.

    But the fact that those two characters have all but taken over Pokemon fan art should be more than enough proof that a majority of the fandom are fans of them and believe they can do no wrong.

    And my personal preferences have nothing to do with this. The issue here is the sheer number of fans who believe that the trainer and Pokemon in question are somehow special when in fact both are well below average in terms of strength.

    I'm seriously considering dropping the "Pokemon" aspect of this 30 day thing, and just come up with snarky, non Pokemon responses for the remainder of this. An upside will be that I'll be able to name my favorite IRS tax form as my favorite legendary Pokemon.

    All we're saying is that extreme dislike is not healthy!

    Although on a far more serious note, I'm pretty sure the rest of the fandom does not "worship them like gods". Maybe some genwunners. The hardcore Red fangirls, maybe.

    If that sweeping generalization you made is how you feel about the fanbase, you may want to take a look at the parts of the internet you hang out in, because of all the Pokemon fans I know, your intense fixation on Leaf is probably in the top five biggest single character related fixations for a character from Pokemon that I've ever witnessed, far more intense than any of the Red fixations I've encountered. You may want to check to make sure the people you're chatting with about Pokemon aren't genwunners and highly obsessed Red fangirls that are just as obsessed with Red as you are with Leaf. I mean, in the end, both Leaf and Red are just fictional, 2D characters.

    30 Days of Pokemon: Day 3

    LOL it seems some people here are trying to stifle my right to express my opinion on my own blog. Again, lol.

    But, um, I'll cut a deal with y'all. I'll stop ranting about those two as soon as the rest of the fandom stops worshipping them like gods. Sound like a deal?

    And in any event, I can't picture either of them coming up at all after Day 6 of this. That's when I transition from my least favorite Pokemon elements to my favorites. Just let me get my "least favorite male" and " 'favorite' episode" off my chest first.

    @Pedro: Awesome pic, probably the best picture I've seen with Pikachu in it

    Are you sure that there is absolutely no other way to answer that question? The likes of Garbodor would fit the bill for ugliest Pokémon more than Pikachu ever will.

    30 Days of Pokemon: Day 2

    Yes, I happen to know that concept, the attitude is not necessary or appreciated. Raikou fits that description. So does Braviary. Arcanine does not, it's about as "majestic" as your average zombie. It's just a big hairy mass of rage and ugly. At least IMO.

    Of course, it's also my opinion that Pikachu is the ultimate "evil" Pokemon, so you can run with that however you wish.

    Arcanine isn't an "evil" Pokémon like Mightyena and Zubat, because they are supposed to be terrifyingly majestic, if you can wrap your mind around such a concept.

    …Majestic beast, I suppose.

    30 Days of Pokemon: Day 1 (NEW BLOG SERIES/BANDWAGON THINGY)

    I dun like how people consider Pikamachu to be the only Pokémon that exists.

    Even though I personally like Pikachu a lot, its status as "OMG LOOKIE HERE I'M SUPER NERDY I LOOOOOVE POKÉMON" starts to grind at my soul quite a bit after a while.

    I did something like this last year on Facebook and another forum. It was sort of different though pretty much the same. Still really fun! Good luck.

    While I disagree with Pikachu being ugly, I do think he shouldn't be the mascot for Pokemon. Maybe Charizard or Eevee would of been better imo.

    Time to explain myself...

    Sorry, I was in a rush to post this so I didn't really explain why I've gone inactive on the non-Pokemon sections.

    For the past, I'd say at least a year, the bulk of my activity here has indeed been in OVP. I used to be active in the old Japanese Entertainment section, otaku that I am, but even before it was collapsed into General Entertainment the bulk of discussion bacame focused on series I never got into, so I couldn't contribute much there either. OVP has become stale as well, as topics pass the 30-day-old mark and are resurrected - there are only so many times I can post about my favorite places to shop, what superpower I would want, or my dreams that seem to have a weird focus on my high school days, and so on. Since I hardly keep up with modern trends outside of anime, I really can't post about those either. So I did try posting on a variety of topics (in OVP at least) before I found myself staring at the same topics that I answered a month or two prior in an older thread about the same thing.

    But y'all totally forgot about my additional obsessions with the Pretty Cure anime series and major fraud cases - not that those are any more mainstream xD

    And I don't like the way X/Y have been handled as far as information so far - it's like a car maker promising this revolutionary new vehicle and only revealing what the windshield wiper blades look like (also a reason why I'm not liking this simultaneous release in Japan and overseas - I like to be able to reference some Japanese player's run through the game so I know what Pokemon appear and can plan my team accordingly, before I even make the trip to the store to pick it up.) Let's face it, I don't care about what the Pokemon look like. I need to know if certain unsavory characters/Pokemon will show up (sadly, one such unsavory Pokemon WILL show up; I'm hoping my Public Enemy #1 trainer doesn't). And I need to see official trainer fan-art to answer that one nagging question I have about her - tights or thigh-highs?

    Except for said girl in X/Y, nothing that HAS been revealed has me remotely interested. I know what the revelaed Pokemon look like on account of fan art searches, but ask me to name one and I'll just stare blankly and mutter something like, "Jacksonville?" The intro video did quite a bit to lower my level of excitement (guess who jumps around and squeals like an idiot at the very start of said video?) - worse than B2/W2's trailer video, actually. I'm kinda wishing the girl trainer wasn't attractive so I could completely wash my hands of any interest in the new games - B2/W2 was supposed to be my final Pokemon game but now that's up in the air. But dammit, I'm such a sucker for a cute face and nice outfit:/ I might have posted in X/Y twice or three times - once to comment on the girl, once to say that I don't want any cameo appearances this time around, and I can't remember what else, if I posted anything else at all.

    The speculation is indeed getting out of control. Some of it is so far out of left field it actually makes my "Bernie Madoff as uber-end-boss with Lv93 Pokemon" idea seem reasonable. Then again, this IS a fandom that comes up with equally bizarre ideas for romantic character pairings, so perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised. Maybe I should make an entire blog post with odd, nonsensical speculations about these games.

    Despite giving B2/W2 a decent score (another Pokemon game purchase largely fueled by a cute protagonist), I haven't touched it since the middle of January. I ran out of things to do in the game and the franchise in general doesn't keep me entertained like it used to.

    Of course, the biggest thing I'm concerned with right now is my upcoming move to North Carolina which will be in June or July.

    tl;dr: I have been focusing the bulk of my activity on the non-Pokemon sections (OVP) for at least a year, but even those are getting stale. X/Y feature a cute girl trainer but literally nothing else (so far) to hold my interest and I'm not liking the lack of concrete information. Also, I'm bored with the franchise as a whole and I'm focusing on relocating to a nicer, warmer climate.

    …I haven't touched that forum since January 12th or so :p

    But I'm feeling the same way lately. For me, it's more of a "I don't want to think" thing from being tired at school more than anything. Maybe once you get a bit more rest (whenever that is) we'll see you around more! <3

    I love the idea of X and Y but feel the same way about the section rn - it's basically useless speculation and over-the-top and I really dislike it, haha. Maybe we'll see you around some more when there's more to talk about on that front (:

    In our defense, you also want to talk about the same topics (Leaf and Hotels and Buicks) so just because some of us might not be as interested as you in those topics, it doesn't mean there's no place on the forum for you or that others should change what they want to talk about. (You can't expect it from others when you do the same thing.) Though I do understand your qualms, there is a whole other bunch of sections for you to post about too. Either way it's up to you, because you just want to get enjoyment out of this place and it hasn't been doing that for you (totally understandable.)
    I digress, I hope you take care until X and Y get released and I see you back here, or if you're leaving for good I wish you all the best in your life.
    Cheers, man!

    Well, PC has more than just pokemon to talk about, but I can certainly fully understand the want and need to distance yourself from unnecessary speculation and such. I can also understand if your interest in the game has waned, because it really hasn't changed a whole lot in the past 3 gens and it feels like the new pokemon they're coming up with are just not as good as they once were.

    Ah well, PC will miss it's resident Buick enthusiast, but so long as you check in, I think we'll manage. x3
