How soon do you think you can get the next chapter of Leaf and Lisa's story read? I'd like to get the next chapter up by the weekend
Now on to the rest of my message, lol
Awesome! It's always to just get a test behind you, even if you don't think you did all that well. I know I don't like to dwell on a test after I'm done; I just like to relax And I'm no good with analyzing literature, lol... I'm glad 2003 was the last time I ever had to pick up a novel xD
And probably not an American car from the 1960's and 1970's either, but if I can put a car-like spin on something, I'll gladly do it. Especially since Pokemon is really lacking in cars overall...
I know.... he's probably going to spend the rest of his life in jail, but that doesn't change the fact that he's 68 and he's been living his life and committing his crimes for decades without anyone doing anything about it.
Something like Pokemon meets Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, huh... I could definitely see something like that... I could do brutal combo attacks and bloody finisher moves on the trainers I hate xD But yeah, for a "world tournament" it's really lacking in participants.
Actually, there's now a slight change in my team makeup... Ampharos is now the Electric type and Eevee will now become Espeon.
Can't say that I liked the battle frontiers either. They feed your Pokemon drugs to adjust their levels to 50, they force you to battle with half your team, and the CPU gets suspiciously lucky... I once got destroyed in the tower because an opponent landed three consecutive Sheer Colds on me. That's just plain cheap. And since the tournament appears to be more of the same (three on three, probably unfair CPU luck) I wouldn't participate even if they had a decent selection of opponents.
The test was on finance. The math end of it. Which means I had to (attempt to) memorize a whole lotta complex math formulas in addition to terminology. I took the test in 2011, and I had to recall stuff I hadn't seen since 2007 for this thing. Amazing that I ended up passing...
Eh, I haven't committed to anything yet. I'm going to have my brother test drive it for me since he'll buy anything with the Pokemon name slapped on it...
TESTS ARE OOOOOVER :D Finally ! Phew I'm so happy to be on holidays, it was about time ! The teacher that judged me chose the text of the end of Dom Juan by Molière, maybe you know at least Dom Juan. In the beginning I was happy, because it wasn't the most difficult text but I think I didn't really respect his instructions, I analyzed the text but I think it wasn't exactly what he expected... And the, the questions he asked were very difficult ! I did my best but I couldn't answer to all of them. I hope I'll have at least 10/20 ...
Wow I hadn't thought of that for the Unova region name x) I don't really believe that a car was their inspiration, but after all, why not.
Justice can be really unfair, it's like they judge you for what you are rather than for what you do, this guy deserved way worse than what he got.
They should make a game with every former characters. Not even an adventure game, just a battle game or something like that but where you can challenge every characters you want, it would be awesome That's a pity that the tournament doesn't include everyone.
For you thunderstone, why don't you try to trade it or something like that? Btw your team is cool I haven't planned mine yet at all, I just know that I'll choose the water starter.
I agree for the Dream World, I'm sure that no one care about it, really. However, the tournament makes a lot of fans happy, it's like the Battle Frontier, it's not necessary for the plot, but it's an adding that makes the game way more interesting !
Wow, it was a test about what? :O It seemed horrible...
Eh eh, I'm happy you've made up your mind, I'm sure you'll enjoy BW2 ;P
Well, that is definitely not good... that's why I don't really like these tests at the end of the year, there's too much to memorize! There should be a midterm that covers the first half of the year, then the finals only cover the second half... at least some of my professors in college took that approach, so there was less to memorize...
People seem to forget that I'm entitled to my opinion as well... and believe me, a lot of my opinions are not of the majority regarding Pokemon. I can bet I'm the only person anywhere who believes this was the inspiration for the name of the Unova region...
Evil, sick guy. Worst part was that he got away with it for maybe 30 or 40 years and the college covered it up. Because he was a football coach and he was getting results on game day. And apparently, as long as you get results on the field, nothing else matters...
Well, I'd rather not talk about you-know-who anymore. I don't need to go on some sort of crazed rampage or something. I'll just say that his popularity is completely baffling to me considering he's a weakling, Leaf would have the better team if they ever included her, and regarding past characters, I either want to see all of them, or none of them at all. None of this, "let's pick and choose our favorites and give everyone else the shaft" stuff (keep in mind that ALL protagonists besides the idiot were excluded, not to mention the Elite Four... I would've liked to see Lorelei and Lucian again as well). And no, the tournament is a den of evil horrors that I never intend to step into.
I'd finally like to say that I now have an extra nasty surprise for a certain chump in my story, and Leaf will be the one to deliver it to him
I'd really like to talk about other matters regarding the games. Like how I have no idea where I'm gonna get the Thunderstone I need for the Jolteon I've planned for my team. I hava a friend who's playing through a Japanese version and she hasn't come across it in the places it was in B/W... and I can't keep the thing as an Eevee until after the Elite Four...
Planned team so far is Samurott, Archeops, Liepard, Flygon, possibly Jolteon, and some 6th team member I don't know yet.
I'll be honest, I'm not half the fan I was back in, say, 2009. I didn't like HG/SS and I didn't like B/W, so those were major blows to my fandom. Platinum's actually the newest Pokemon game that I still own. I can't buy Pokemon games based on the name alone, nowadays. It's like a car where you have to take it on a test drive before you buy it... I need to know that I'm not going to get bored with the game after a couple months before I buy.
I don't see the point of the Dream World and all this wi-fi stuff, either. Wi-fi should just be limited to the core activities of trading and battling with others, and not these other activities that I don't want to do. The tournament is an unnecessary add-on as well, IMO. It certainly has nothing to do with the core plot of the game.
Wow... I never got anything that bad in high school. College, though, was a whole different story. To graduate, I had to take a test that covered FOUR YEARS worth of material... every class I took that was in the program of study. Now that test was a monster. I'd say I lost about a week of sleep trying to prepare for that and I still forgot half of it on test day:/
Though, honestly, these days I'd probably go crazy if I had to study that much... I actually think I handled studying better when I was younger as opposed to when I was in college. Maybe it was because there were less distractions in high school
Bad :/ I have only reviewed 5 texts out of 19, and my oral is Tuesday... Each one takes so long !
Yes I've seen some comments on your blog :/ Don't worry, it's not gonna last a long time, people are just violent when you haven't the same opinions as them.
Oh god Oo Surprisingly I had never heard of him ! Some people are really mad...
Yes but you know Red represents in a lot of fan's heart the best trainer every, while Leaf doesn't :/ So he's favored over her. And in GSC i was happy to see him again, it was a good idea, not to let us forget the very first games. I like the concept of former characters in newer games, protagonists always fascinated me.
I'm sure you'll finally buy it As a Pokémonfan, you won't resist for ages lol Maybe you'll even like the World Tournament, and you'll enjoy kicking Red once again ! He may have a better team this time, and could surprise you, who know? (despite the Pikachu )
That's true, they do too many new things, that aren't even improvements. I never used the Dream World, really, I found it useless. They should keep the memory for more interesting and useful stuff.
Actually, as there are a lot of things to review for the oral french, there is more than one week between it and the written baccalauréat, so we can review (and, I think it's not enough nevertheless). The last day is the 4th, and those exams begin the 27 th and then, exams are totally over. I was chosen for the 3rd, and seriously, I prefer that than taking this exam the 27th, I have more time to review and I need it ! Anyway, school, exam and so on are badly organized here.
Well, that was years ago... my grades kinda started slipping in college but I still ended up graduating after a few classes I had to retake...
Really? I didn't like him at all... Oh, you haven't heard? His case was a pretty major one here in the US, so I would've thought it would've gotten some international coverage... anyway he's a former assistant (American) football coach at Pennsylvania State University who recently got convicted of doing nasty... things... with young boys over the span of decades. Really, really sick man.
Well, I really wasn't expecting her either, but then again I wasn't expecting him either... See, it isn't just her not showing up that bothers me... she didn't appear in D/P/Pt and I didn't mind at all. It's when she's passed over in favor of him that I start getting annoyed. And honestly, I'd rather see former characters stay in their respective games... back in G/S/C, it definitely ruined the mystique of our character from R/B when BOOM! he showed up with an horribly weak team. I was like, "I don't remember training a team this bad in Blue..."
And regarding B2/W2, I'm on the "wait and see" approach now. I'm definitely not preordering it or getting it on release day. I have a friend who's playing the Japanese version (so she can tell me where in the game you can find Pokemon I might want for my team) and since I know my brother will be getting the game when it comes out I can get feedback from him before I make a decision. Not to mention reading through game walkthroughs first. I do know that the world tournament is a place that I'll most likely avoid like the plague. I hope the rest of it is much improved over B/W because I was so dissatisfied with White that I returned it.
My beef is that (a) Game Freak is playing favorites and being biased against their female characters and (b) they're packing in way too much extraneous stuff that has little to do with the core game (i.e., the minigames, Dream World, etc...) They're making things too complicated and adding too much stuff on - it ends up being a disorganized mess. Whatever happened to keeping things simple? It's kinda the same things with RPGs in general... there's too many online wi-fi modes, and extra battle tournaments that take away from the main story.
As for the story, I'll post it whenever you're able to post your comments on it. No big rush for me. It's a bit odd that your tests would be spread out over that long - our exam weeks in high school and college were exactly that - a week (including Saturday in college). At least it gives you plenty of time to study in the meantime... just don't study so much you lose sleep - as I found out the hard way, losing sleep is never a good thing when it comes to tests.
You know, I think I would've preferred champion Alder, by far than Iris x) And who's Jerry Sandusky btw?
Aww, I was sure Leaf wouldn't be in the game... Why have they forgotten her again? Uh, I'm sorry to admit it but I think we'll never see her in a Pokémon game again... Unless they make a spinoff or something like that with all the protagonists... And, even though you're disappointed, you should buy the game, just to try it out ! It seems there are many improvements.
And I'm happy that Red is in this World Tornament I think I'm gonna really enjoy this world tornament. I love to see former characters coming back. Though I regret that we don't have a battle frontier instead. Don't be too negative, I'm personnally as reluctant as you, but I see several positive things too
I've no faith in developers anymore, they are aiming at newer gamers, not true fans unfortunately... A lot of former players would play again if they were more aiming nostalgia points, I'm almost sure about it.
Yes, I'll be done the 3rd, I can't wait this day, I'm fed up with all the texts I have to learn. There's no problem if you post it the 5th, I'll try to read it when I can, it's as you want, if you prefer to post it later there's no problem neither
I remember those days... now granted, I did quite well on my high school tests (and rocked the house when it came to math ) but studying still sapped a whole lot of my time.
Well, it could have been a lot better, but it could have been a lot worse too... like Champion Alder again. Or *shudder* "Champion" Jerry Sandusky... At least it's a girl, albeit not one of the better looking ones. But really, though. you'd think someone calling themselves Champion would dress like a professional... like business suits.
Well, the worst thing imaginable happened... guess who rears his ugly head in the world tournament (a stupid idea anyway if you ask me)... and guess who once AGAIN doesn't appear at all :/ So right now, my chances of buying the game is hovering right around the 4-5% mark, to put it numerically. No, it isn't just you-know-who; he's just the latest in a long line of problems (including no Persian, the world tournament in general, stupid minigames like the musicals and Pokewood, the Dream World, the Entralink, the C-gear, too many legendaries, Alder, Burgh, Dunsparce, Rattata, Arcanine, Lickilicky, Tangrowth, Wigglytuff, Cheren being demoted, Bianca's not-improved outfit, no evil badass rival, and the experience earning system). Suffice to say there's plenty I'm unhappy about here.
Skitty and Delcatty. Fine for Contests, not so great at battling. Persian indeed would have been the better choice, but I'm not sure the developers are even capable of making decent choices anymore.
Well, I wouldn't worry about getting it done too soon.... right now I'm not fixing to post the next chapter till around July 5, and you said you'd be done with tests on the 3rd, right? In fact, one of my regular readers is on leave so I might back up that posting date till the 8th or even the 9th if you need more time.
Phew, I took 2 outf of the three baccalaureat I have this year. The History-Geography one and the Written French one. And July 3rd, I have the oral french. This is almost over, but I have still a lot to review... This week will be very hard.
Haha, and to think that we hoped to have a cute girl champion this time... I guess you already know it, but, we'll have to get stuck with Iris this time... And, even if her outfit is a little better than the former one, it's still Iris, and personnally I don't like her. At all. What a disappointment ! All my hopes fade away !
As you said, it's pretty complicated... But I think that'll be something great, now that I've watched a lot of trailer and so on, I'm really looking forward to playing these games !
Aww too bad :/ I appreciate Skitty and Delcatty, they're cute, but like Lisa and you I'd would have prefered Persian It's stronger and more elegant !
Concerning your chapter, I'll read it after my exam Because those times I have no time, that's awful... And I just started my review... That's despairing.
I'm doing pretty good. Ooh, I remember finals week... that's always rough... good luck!
Awesome! Leaf and Lisa await!
I hope not (he could always be some wandering trainer now - you're supposed to run into him fairly early on in the game). But why did he have to return in the first place? But atl least there's still hope...A girl champion in a cute dress who could rip your team apart with her powerhouse Pokemon would be perfect... so would a girl in a cute dress as your player character, though. I wish they'd do that in the next set of games (But bring back the black tights; they're the best part of the B2/W2 girl xD)
Well, I don't know that she did, I'm just expressing my hopes and prayers that she did. And from what I heard, that Akuroma guy's not the professor you get your Pokemon from... you actually get it from Bianca, who's Juniper's assistant. So she might still be in the professor role, I don't know at this point. At least that's what people are saying is going to happen on the site. Everything's getting so complicated with these games...
Oh yeah, the cat Pokemon (W2 only) is Skitty/Delcatty... not the cat Pokemon I was hoping for since I had a hard time using one back in Sappphire since it couldn't attack to save its life.
