    I actually love Johto as much as Sinnoh...Now Kanto is tied with Unova in my book while I like Kalos as a region slightly better than K.U.
    Heh, you don't see many people who love Johto and hate Kanto (or the other way around), which shows how closely connected the two regions are. Would you prefer Johto being an isolated region with its own League like Hoenn and Sinnoh?

    I'm guessing you're not a fan of "industrial" regions, as that's the biggest thing Kanto and Unova have in common.

    Btw the wacky Lorelei=Malva is not an actual theory of mine, I doubt it as much as you. I just wanted to get it out of the way early before someone later on brings it up.
    Don't worry, I do that often, too, speaking before thinking.

    I don't know how you feel, but Lorelei is a character that's dear to me, so I'm very protective of her. I just don't like other people doing things with her that I don't approve of. (One of the few upsides to her having appeared in so few games, I guess. It's easier to flesh her out and make her mine. ) Same goes for Lance, Team Rocket, and any others we may have disagreed on.

    Do you have any characters like that? Characters that you're really attached to and have hard, set headcanons for? I'll promise to stay away from them.

    GF tried the 150 dex (actually the Kanto's remakes' dex still being 151 may be due to GF's love for 150 something dexes...) thing again with BW...sadly it resulted in a lot of duplicates like Elesa's team. Sad thing is that they could've given her Joltik...
    I hope GF has learned their lesson, because every Regional Dex that's lower than 200 has been widely criticized by the fandom. While the first 151 worked in RBY, by the time FRLG rolled around, its complete lack of diversity and balance became all too evident--too much Poison/Water/Normal, not enough Ghost/Dragon/Dark/Steel.

    DP's Dex had even worse issues, with Fire (a core elemental type) being as scarce as the "supposed to be rare" Ghost and Dragon. Electric and Ice were also pitifully scarce, the latter of which especially insulting because Sinnoh was supposed to be a COLD region. Meanwhile, Water and Normal types were still a dime a dozen (even including a Pokémon that combined the worst of both worlds), and there also seemed to be a slight overload of Bugs and Psychics (hence why Lucian was able to have a full team).

    BW was probably the best of the three as far as diversity went, but Ice types were still very lacking (and even worse, all of them were crappy mono-Ices, one of them being the infamous Ice Cream Cone). Plus, a lot of people hated only being able to use brand new Pokémon and not their old favorites from earlier Gens.

    I hope Kalos becomes the new standard for Regional Dexes--a large variety of Pokémon of every type for everyone.

    Please, don't take this the wrong way... But, I think you're better off just sticking to Hoenn and Sinnoh. You've said yourself that you're not as much of a fan of Kanto and Johto as Hoenn and Sinnoh and that the latter two are what you grew up with, so I don't think you really "get" Kanto and Johto a lot of the time.

    A lot of your Kanto/Johto theories and ideas make me wretch (Not all of them, though!), to be honest, and I really don't like being told how to interpret certain characters that I probably know and understand better than you.

    But, don't worry, because I'm pretty much the same in regards to Hoenn and Sinnoh, and that's okay. (As much as I gripe about Cynthia's popularity, which must annoy you, LOL.) When I talk about Hoenn and Sinnoh, I try to think about what fans of those regions would want rather than what I would want, but in the end, I'm not a fan of them, so my opinions and ideas don't count as much. It's amazing how divided this fandom can be sometimes...

    Actually some found Pt to be easier than D,P, seeing how Pt turned the gym leaders back to ' Poor predictable Rock' teams.
    They certainly due become less predictable after Byron...actually that's what made them difficult according to DP players, as the game fooled them with the first six...
    Well, it's obvious that GF was trying to avoid dupes/NFEs on Gym Leader and especially, E4 teams in DP (in sharp contrast to how they handled the specialists of underrepresented types in the previous games), and the fact that obtaining the National Dex required seeing every member of the Sinnoh Dex also helped as a motivating factor. There still wasn't much of an excuse for DP's tiny, badly distributed Dex, though (especially when it didn't even include all of the Pokémon that were introduced in Gen 4).

    Viewing you discussion with Cerberus on Sinnoh I must say that GF didn't learn their mistake from Gen III (Hoenn lacks good ice types while Sinnoh lacked good Fire types up until Pt). I do hope that DP remakes use the Pt dex...I don't want them to stay that close to DP...beside Pt is the one I love (much like Emerald...sadly ORAS didn't use Emerald's more difficult teams).
    Believe it, or not, Sinnoh lacked Ice types as well (hence, Candice having a Medicham). You know, in a COLD region.

    In fact, Lucian is the only significant NPC after Byron who uses a team that's 100% his specialized type in DP. Candice has a Medicham, Volkner has an Ambipom and Octillery, Aaron has a Drapion, Bertha has a Sudowoodo, and Flint (the worst one) has a Steelix, Lopunny, and Drifblim.

    Did you know that Giovanni is the only Gym leader to never be rematched (discounting the lack of proper rematches in Gen V and VI) at all? Koga is rematched eventually as a E4 in HGSS but Giovanni only get's one battle in HGSS. The Kanto gym leaders are likewise fought. Though if one only counts Gen I's story than Kanto's gym leader's lack rematches... (it's sad...maybe even more so that ORAS didn't just copy and paste Emerald's rematch teams for rematches in ORAS).
    GF seems to have something against Gym Leader rematches lately. The Gen 5 games didn't have them at all (outside of the PWT), and XY had them in a much more watered down way than Emerald, Platinum, and HGSS. I gather that this is probably, yet, another side-effect of them putting more focus on multiplayer/competitive.

    It's true and memorizing Hiragana and Katakana is supposedly as east as learning alphabets. However I admit that I am not giving much effort and attentions. Sigh.

    How did the Biology exam go?

    If that's the case perhaps they should give Blue a slight tan too so that the top of the Indigo league don't look like they've lacked sun most of their lives...though given their position...
    Giovanni could also get a slight tan.
    Blue and Giovanni could work with tans. (Especially, because of, again, their anime counterparts. Note that the Gary picture is a perfect example of why Blue is better off being a teenager.)

    Quote:
    Now that you mention Lorelei as an ice queen I thinks her redesign should include some more blue.
    That would be great. Blue and purple are her best colors, IMO.

    Quote:
    Have you ever found it odd that GF named the league of Kanto (which later became was revealed to be Johto's too) the Indigo league? Think about the name of the Japanese pair and the one member of the trio that was originally left out...thus choosing Indigo makes sense as back then a third version was likely not planned. Actually according to TV tropes Nintendo had low expectations of Pokemon (especially since it was being made on a dying console)...basically it was the Lion King of Nintendo.
    Edit: Oh wait in the Japanese games it's called the Quartz Plateau...which interestingly fits in nicely with the third version of the Johto games...
    Very interesting, there...

    Btw which Kanto characters do you expect to get a tan (or bleached?) in a Kanto centrist (I) re-remake? The top candidates are Bruno, Lt. Surge, Brock, and Misty for tans. Erika might get paler as she's sort of a http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/YamatoNadeshiko.
    Well, Bruno getting tanned would simply be returning back to his original design, which I have zero problems with. (I actually kind of dislike how FRLG/HGSS whitewashed him.) And, as for Brock, his tan would bring him closer in appearance to his more famous anime counterpart, which I also don't have a problem with. (The same can also be said for Lt. Surge, believe it or not. He also appeared to be tanned in Stadium 2.)

    Misty, on the other hand, shouldn't get a tan, as her design is a bit too iconic to be changed that drastically. (Even if it's mostly iconic because of the anime.)

    I agree about Erika getting paler. I think Lorelei, Agatha, and Lance should also look paler. One's an Ice Queen, one's a Creepy Old Hag, and one's a White Knight.

    Also aren't most of the fanbase now in their twenties? At least those that started with I-III are and those are half of the gens.
    Pretty much, although many of the people who started with DPP (the last games to be exclusively marketed to kids) are still in their teens.

    But, even 14-16 year olds are still more relatable to twenty-somethings than tweens are, especially when it comes to the romance department. There's a reason why it's not uncommon for young adults to watch TV shows targeted towards teens, while you rarely see anyone over the age of 14 watch TV shows targeted towards tweens.

    Ahem. Japanese is easy, specially for those who speaks Chinese or Korean, since those languages have a lot of similarities. Think Spanish, Italian and French.

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 .
