Hey there. We used to talk now-and-again, but (as you're likely well aware) I'm never on here anymore. I thought it'd be nice to stop by and see if you have an AIM or Facebook account that we could perhaps talk on whenever? Let me know!
As for my opinion, I don't think you're dumb. That's just the way you see it. Personally, I see it a tad bit different. Then again, I have a mixture of anime/game canon, so it gets confusing, even for me.
Probably, but you can probably get through it 10 minutes max reading. It just astounds me how stupid people are on simple things stated in canon. (I'd also like your opinion, if you think I'm dumb or anything for anything I said)
It starts close to the very bottom of page 511, and ends on 516. Note how innocent it starts, and how the whole question was "your opinion", but quickly devolved into them demanding proof. I'm the only one that got in trouble for it, when they pushed it.
Again, ********. There was an opinion question in the Lounge on how intelligent we think Pokemon are, and I said they're nothing more than animals in the games. Then it got into how I think the gym badges and possibly Pokeballs control Pokemon, which is outright stated in the games and manga. I got an infraction for "disrespecting" the other members, when they constantly misread my points and called me a coward and such. You can read the whole debate if you like.
