    You played and owned Gen II games so you'll probably know better than me...but I don't recall Silver (the game) hinting at Silver (what's the GF and Silver...I mean look at Mt. Silver...why no Mt. Gold?) being Giovanni's son. In fact only place I found such hints was in the non canon GSC arc Special...so I tend to consider FrLg hints a first reference/integration of the manga's plot to the games canon. Then HgSs confirmed it (meanwhile AlphaSapphire linked Archie and Jirachi).
    Yeah, the original games didn't say much about the identity of Silver's father, although his extreme hatred for Team Rocket may have been a small tip-off. (Like many, I don't think Silver and Giovanni had a good relationship.)

    In the few years between FRLG and HGSS, some people were speculating that Lorelei was Silver's mother, a "theory" which makes me vomit. She's WAY too young (she's like only 10-15 years older than Silver, at the most), and I can't stand the thought of her and Giovanni together. (Her True Love is Lance.) Hopefully, canonizing Ariana as his mom will kill that "theory" for good.

    Quote:
    You know what? Team Rocket's research into Evolution can be easily integrated into a Mega Evolution arc if they are to remake Yellow. As they were researching on evolution long before Prof. Rowan and Prof. Sycamore were. They could explain how the Key Stones function (could be connected to magnetic waves) as ORAS didn't answer that part.
    Maybe... So long as it doesn't interfere with my postgame Lugia story.

    Quote:
    You know another thing FrLg lacked that HGSS and ORAS and had? Shipping/romantic hints between the player characters. Interestingly the games with the more 'realistic' (minus HGSS) plots lack that kind of romance as Gen V lacked it too...but B2W2 had some with the player and the idols. Basically would you like to see Leaf/Red put into the plot and have some romantic hints with the player like Lyra/Ethan, and May/Brendan did? Or perhaps have the opposite character relegated to a facility (only) like the Gen V characters?
    Eh, I'd rather see romance hints with the important NPCs, like my postgame Lugia story does with Lorelei/Lance/Archer. There are still way too many characters (mainly E4 members) who haven't canonically interacted with anyone but the protagonists and could use the fleshing out. Plus, my ideal Gen 1 remake would have the PCs as twin siblings, so no shipping to be found there (unless you're a sicko).

    I haven't read 50 Shades, only snippets, and I hate its narrative. Can't judge its content, though. I'll try to watch the movie, but, considering it's rated only 13+, I don't expect to be impressed.

    I just love watching the Twilight movies for their complete lack of quality. The soundtracks are quite good. I used to have them in my playlist. Shame they're wasted in crappy movies.

    Quote:
    Wait, Lance didn't appear in Gen V...that I recall...
    The PWT. It's unknown whether or not it's 100% canon, but every past Gym Leader (sans Koga) and Champion (which includes Lance) was there. Only Elite Four members were missing (because GF hates them).

    Quote:
    Well they'll have to do X2 and Y2 or what are the other two games OrAs are suppose to link to 0_o...well it could be Z and Yellow remake. Or prequels of Kalos.
    I'd accept Z and Yellow. We'd have the first Third Version since 2008 along with the remake of the very first Third Version ever (JP Blue doesn't count).

    Quote:
    Do you think Ariana is Silver's mother?
    Well, the resemblance is pretty strong. The next Gen 1 remake should canonize it.

    Quote:
    A lot of fans seem to want a game in the past...wonder how it'll work though as the dex will have to cease to be.
    Well, they can always just apply a little Gameplay and Story Segregation. They can also implement a "proto-Pokédex"-type item that looks different, yet is functionally the same.

    Quote:
    Do you think Green/Blue will appear this Gen? He's been in every Gen plus they mention in XY that he was in Kalos.
    There are pretty much only two ways he'll return at this point: The PWT returns in the next Kalos game (if it happens), or Gen 1 gets a surprise remake at the very end of the Gen. Same goes for Red, Lance, and the Kanto Gym Leaders, the only other characters (sans Koga and Janine) who have appeared in every Generation but the sixth.

    Quote:
    Is that so...seems like they simply like abuse. Also I think that if anyone in that pair likes the other is Sycamore as Lysander's plot was going to kill him...so Lysander doesn't like him that way. I do wonder what Malva was doing...
    It's interesting how the women closest to those two (Malva and Diantha) are relegated to the league but don't do much >_<...
    That's how fandom works, I'm afraid. The women only exist to get shoved aside for "teh yaoiz," no matter how strong/cool they are or how much more they make sense with the dudes than the dudes do with each other.

    That's true, but Pokemon has always had some degree of fantasy too.
    Well, of course, Pokémon don't actually exist in RL, but it's still a modern setting that's obviously meant to parallel RL. Not at all like the quasi-historic setting of the Zelda games, which is very far removed from RL.

    Quote:
    Abusive Yaoi?
    Yeah, pretty much. Fandom loves their heavily fetishized M/M...

    Quote:
    I didn't think you would like Zelda due to it being quite fantastical. I didn't play the originals, but the remakes seem to stick to the originals more so than FrLg did with RG from what I've heard...
    Zelda's a different kind of game than Pokémon, so I don't expect the same things from it. (Plus, Majora's Mask actually has a pretty character-driven plot... The core of the story is about Link and Skull Kid.)

    Quote:
    I like all of those teams you don't like and dislike those you do. Well...Flare might be the exception...Lysander was nothing but a Hitler with ecological 'reasoning' behind his goals who fans see as a Draco in Leather Pants.
    They really weren't trying with Flare, were they?

    As for Lysandre... I can easily guess why he's a Draco in Leather Pants. As well as who the fandom thinks should be his One True Love...

    Please, don't use the G-word to describe older fans. It's a childish insult that has no place in reasonable discussions, and it only contributes to the stigmatization of older fans.

    Anyways...

    Quote:
    Though they did announce something I was looking forwards to, the release of the remake of the sequel of Ocarina of Time (which was also remade for the 3DS...GF could take some more notes from Zelda...), Majora's Mask. Strangely I got Ocarina as my first 3DS game and to have it's sequel be the first game I play on the New 3DS will be quite worth it.
    Oh, I heard about that. I have fond memories of playing the N64 originals, myself. (Did you ever play the originals?) Both great games with great stories and lots to do.

    Quote:
    On the topic of XY, did you know what one of the commonly cited reasons people say it sold as well as it did? Nostalgia. Gen V managed to bring back some Gen I and Gen II fans, but XY brought more back. One of the reasons was that GF (since they felt like going old school and doing some call backs to your favorite region) put a lot of Kanto references in the game, and even called back to Gen I (and III FrLg and to some degree IV with HgSs) with pre-release screenshots from the original games of the franchise. I do wonder what them doing so for Kanto re-remakes mean...is them doing so their attempt to tap into nostalgia while avoiding remaking Kanto again? Or is an indication that GF is feeling a bit ''home sick'' and wants to return to their roots. I think it may be the second, as Sugimori said in an interview they wanted to make Gen VII simple like the original Gens were. So perhaps their desire for simpleness will lead them back to the region that started it all in the end.
    I hope it's the latter rather than the former. They can cram as many older Pokémon and references in to Kalos as they want, but at the end of the day, Kalos is still Kalos, not Kanto. I hope those are all, indeed, references to future remakes, which the new timeline (established with ORAS) necessitates, anyways.

    Quote:
    So what kind of antagonists do you like the best? (Do you like the more darker ones? As Rocket for example is one of the least grey teams).
    I like villains that are realistic and make sense, villains I can actually take seriously. Like, Rocket and to a lesser extent, Plasma. No to Magma, Aqua, Galactic, and Flare.

    They didn't show anything...but a puzzle game. Well we have until July to see if we'll get anything this year (as OrAs was announced in May and came out six months later which I think is the shortest reveal and release at least in modern games).
    Boo, spin-off games! Talk about boring!

    Quote:
    Ehh, he still cares a lot about his mons so he's fine even though he's been smogonized. I have been too after Gen III...sadly.
    A lot of people have, unfortunately, and GF has responded accordingly by gearing the newest games to competitive battlers as much as possible... Which sucks for people like me.

    Quote:
    You know Marge in OR's DE was the first female to control her team post game at least for a short time? Rocket had Archer, Aqua in AS has Matt I beleive, Galactic has Charon, Plasma and Flare have the male scientists...
    Marge? *one Google search later* Oh, you mean, Courtney! Yeah, I see what you mean about her. Maybe, that's a possible hint for Gen 7's Evil Team?

    Quote:
    Sure. Speaking of Draco Pants I try to give my antagonists redeming factors if I feel they will become Dracos (at least give people a reason to think that way).
    That's a good writing strategy. You don't want your stories to be inflicted with Black & White Morality, after all.

    Btw there is going to be a normal Nintendo Direct Tomorrow, who knows...perhaps we'll get some insight on what is next for Pokémon
    Hmm, that could be interesting. Maybe, we'll get a hint towards the next Pokémon games (or, even, remakes).

    Quote:
    Yeah, it's quite sad. If only good guy Wally and silly Barry (I hate that name) were loved by the fan girls as much as Blue and Silver are...
    Don't get me wrong, Blue and Silver are both good-looking and have good stories, but I wouldn't want to be the girlfriend of either of them. They both have horrible personalities, and we would constantly be arguing. I'd much rather be with someone like Wally, adorable and kind-hearted. (At least, before ORAS Smogonized him.)

    Quote:
    At least N isn't mean and abusive...he truly is misguided.
    Oh, if only FerrisWheelShippers actually portrayed him that way (HUGE content warning on that link!).

    Quote:
    Speaking of which the fan girls seems to love Giovanni, Maxie, Archie, Cyrus, and Lysander almost as much as N...just google up the art work of their teams and they'll come up in usually 'cool guy' poses. Way more art of them over the nice girls.
    Oh, I know. Giovanni was the fandom's original Draco in Leather Pants, especially the anime version.

    Quote:
    On the topic of villains I'll like to see a female villainous leader. Perhaps a villainous with plans similar to Giovanni's but who has a more disciplined team compared to those of the males (each team thus far has idiots...)
    I kind of wished I got Alpha Sapphire as I heard they gave Archie and Shelly a good back story. Meanwhile Omega Ruby's main villanous (Marge) is a weirdo, psycho who wanted to let the world be blown up. (Ariana could have more development, I love Mars but she seems to orbit Cyrus too much (no pun intended), Jupiter is alright...not as good as Mars, Anthea and Cordelia (irc their names) were background expository characters...and weren't villanous at all...the Flare females except for Malva are...lacking in something...) In almost all the teams the females seem head over heels for their bosses at least Marge, Shelly, Mars, and potentially Malva. Then there's the theory that Ariana is Silver's mother...
    I think we'd all like to see a female evil Team Leader for a change. It's annoying how the female villains are almost always these sexy sidekicks (some moreso than others).

    Quote:
    It's for an original work I'm working on. It's a fantasy but I also focus on character (sometimes though I'm not sure which to focus on). I try to write fantasy where nearly every character has their own story to tell.
    Sounds like an interesting story. Be sure to share it when you're done.

    Quote:
    It seems you share my view on romantic relationships...it's quite sad that too many books depict unhealthy relationships with an abusive man (usually it's the man...but in other media one sees abusive women too such as usually played for laughs abusive tsundere).
    I know. Twilight's the most obvious example, but you see it in a ton of other media, too. Girls as young as 8 are being taught to desire the "Bad Boy" and to "save" him with nothing but the "power of love." They're being taught that stalking is "romantic," that it's "sexy" if he forces himself on you, and that him yelling or hitting only means that he "loves" you. Combine this with the near lack of positive portrayals of healthy relationships that are sexy and romantic, and you have a recipe for disaster.

    Again, you see its effects in Pokémon fandom. Is it no surprise that the two rivals who are usually considered the "hottest" are also the two who are total jerks? Or, that this guy is considered to be one of the "hottest" and most popular game characters, period? Or, that the most popular version of Lance is not the sweet, caring man from the games and anime, but instead, the hateful villain from Adventures? It's sad and frustrating.

    Quote:
    Btw...mind if I asked you something? How would you feel about a female character who starts up with low self esteem but later builds it up and becomes one of the strongest people in her world?
    Handled well, that could be a very powerful story. Are you planning a fic?

Wow I can't beleive that I'll be completing my third year on this site already...time sure went by quick. I remember joining at the time when Gen V speculation was picking up. Now we're in the middle of Gen VI speculation! During that time I made friends, and lost some too. Even then I found these three past years on here to be fun overall. I hope that the next three years will be better than these past three .
