Aww...I wished to post in that thread, but I feel that I might answer it improperly since I haven't actually played the Generation 5 games yet. I've actually wondered something similar, but not to the extent that you laid out. XD My thoughts were more oriented toward if the Pokemon series in its entirety started on the DS, in 2010/2011, with the releases of BW. Alternatively, this could sort of be construed as if what would happen if you gave a random kid Black or White Version for their DS, and they had no prior knowledge of the Pokemon series existing since 1995. 649 Pocket Monsters to find. AWESOME. (though technically that wouldn't work out, because said child wouldn't necessarily be able to encounter any non-Unova, non-White Forest in-game save for Dream World usage, so knowledge of prior generations would still be needed for proper enjoyment...) I'm confusing myself a bit so I'm going to be quiet now. >.<
Mega-post FTW. I actually printed it out (btw you owe me 3 sheets of paper kthxbai) so I can read it to help me pass the time over summer (sadly, replaying Emerald's Battle Frontier is getting a bit very boring these days -.-)
Neat idea reviewing the geography of Unova. (which reminds me, I never did properly post my review of all of the names of Unova's Pokemon, locations, and items).
So you de-evolved from a AFROBULL into a Herdier again? I am confuddled. ;_;
I'm loving your "Put Your Paws Up" theme. :] ...Though Herdier's silhouette creeps me out, for some reason; idk why. XD (probably because I have cynophobia IRL, mostly pertaining to the big Houndoom-esque dogs. :x)
I admit, I kind of like how Thundurus is homophonous with "thunderous", but I expected "Voltolos" for so long after the Japanese names came out, especially since legendaries' names relatively remain untouched. Plus, you hardly get to say "Volt" in Pokemon names these days..? BARRING VOLT TACKLE, VOLT SWITCH, AND VOLBEAT. @_@ :<
That...seems like a lame pun. -_- It would have been cool for Durant to get something like a "workaholic" ability, such as Vital Spirit or Hustle.
Sorry, I meant the ability Stall in my previous post. :x Of course Prankster is useful; it gives you priority. XD Stall makes you go last, and why would you possibly want that when you're not using moves like Counter, Mirror Coat, and Revenge? >_>
My gosh; that scenario sounds freaking hilarious. XD Go Sableye and Voltolos.
You mean paraHAXXXXXORUS
OK, now that is just fail right there. At least the Pokedex inconsistencies can be justified by "being from the perspective of a journeying 10-year-old kid making exaggerations and hyperbole". This is just staring you right in the face.
Not to mention that its Black Pokedex entry adds insult to injury by mentioning "rolling"... -.-
