    Since you seem like you would know a lot about Houndoom, what is a good moveset for him?

    But then it wouldn't really be a remake. You need to make small but significant changes.
    Then, why put Mega Charizard X at the end? Either you go all the way and embrace the new, or you don't and go 100% nostalgia.

    The Sevii Islands were unnecessary because the goal was to show the story the old fans grew up with. And Green was unfortunately cut because Red is the more iconic player character, by virtue of circumstance.
    Then, why depict the characters in their FRLG designs and base the look of the towns and gyms on FRLG? If the originals were what they were going for, then why not take visual cues from, well, the originals?

    That's true, but they surely greenlighted it, since they own Pokémon's rights.
    Based on that definition, the anime with Ash is canon, too. Hey, they had to have greenlit that, too, right?

    I can imagine it being a lot more fleshed out (something even Zensho was compared to Origins), and I know I'm not alone. And, we never saw any of the Gym Leaders/E4 Members using Megas, or any later Gen Pre/Evos of Gen 1 Pokémon, or any evidence that the Fairy type ever existed. (Why show Red using a Lapras to beat Lance when he could've just as easily used a Clefable w/ Moonblast? That's all they would've needed to acknowledge the new type.)

    And, of course, there was no evidence that the Sevii Islands or Green (female PC) ever existed; they took the aesthetic trappings of FRLG but not its unique additions. Not that the animation or storytelling was that great to begin with.

    I think it was made to give us an idea, and to avoid remaking Kanto again.
    That assumes GF had any direct involvement with Origins, which is VERY unlikely.

    Why do so many people think that Origins is canon? I don't know how many times I've seen people argue that Origins is the Mega Timeline "version" of Gen 1 (usually to "justify" not giving Gen 1 another remake).

    Yes, Origins is a faithful adaptation, but it's still an adaptation. Game canon refers to main series GAMES and only that. I mean, Pokémon Zensho was also a super-faithful adaptation of Gen 1, and you don't see anyone arguing for that being canon, do you? Why, because it's still an adaptation, not a game. Same applies to Origins.

    I've been pretty busy lately, and it's not like there's been much going on here, anyways.

    Which types do you suggest, then? Bug could be one, but it had no STAB moves worth mentioning and was easy to beat, not to mention all the Bugs in RBY are vulnerable to Fire so it would be a sweep for Charizard or Arcanine, too easy. Flying was too repetitive... Pidgeot, Fearow and Dodrio are basically the same Pokémon with slightly different stats. Normal... Well Normal is boring. And Normal isn't really a type to "specialize" in, since it's so diverse. That's pretty much it.
    Normal would've actually been an excellent E4 type in Gen 1. The type had many strong moves and Pokémon, and it was only weak to Fighting (which was a TERRIBLE type at the time). A team of Clefable/Persian/Chansey/Tauros/Snorlax could potentially be tough to take down (especially in Yellow, where they'd have better movesets with TM moves and stuff).

    Flying also had many good Pokémon, although most of those were already taken by Lance. (Who was more a Flying specialist than a Dragon one. )

    Well, back then there was only Gengar.
    Which, maybe should've told them NOT to put a Ghost specialist in the games, then? Putting a Ghost user in Kanto was akin to putting a Dragon user in Sinnoh. (Which, THANK THE GODS, GF wasn't dumb enough to do.)

    Oak's team was basically Blue's with Tauros replacing something, I think.

    It would be really cool if Oak used the unchosen starter. In fact, we should tell Mateo to add this to Red++.
    Oak was obviously intended to be a Champion of some sort, either the one at the end of the Indigo Plateau or a secret postgame final boss, akin to GSC Red or Emerald Steven.

    He's programmed into all 3 Gen 1 games, and in RB, at least, he does use the unchosen starter (not as sure about Yellow, although he still has a normal Kanto starter there). I'll have to ask Mateo about including him in Red++. Great idea!

    Which Agatha utilized VERY poorly to begin with. Besides, Oak had the highest leveled team in the entire game, even stronger than Blue's!

    ROFL! To be honest, I've always found those remarks deeply ironic after learning that Prof. Oak had a far more powerful team than Agatha's programmed into the game.

    That is VERY true. I'd probably know better than anyone here how much a dead fandom sucks (see, Charmed).

    Oh, RL. Yeah, that can often get in the way.

    Well, as you've probably already heard, no new Pokémon game was announced at all at E3, which probably means that we won't see any new main series games until 2016. (This, making this the first year since 1997(!) in which no new Pokémon game was released in either Japan or the US.)

    While it's nice to see GF taking a break, that does unfortunately mean another year of almost nothing but Favorite Pokémon/How Many Shinies/Rate My Team nonsense threads ahead of us. This site can REALLY slow down when there's no new game on the horizon.

    No replies? I've spent the past two days waiting around for something...

    You keep calling Cynthia "Barbie" and Will "psychic clown", for example. That's too aggressive. You can be a hard debater without resorting to that. In a sports forum I go to, you only call the players you dislike by infamous nicknames when you want to get under their fans' skin.
    They are among the few Pokémon characters that I actively loathe. Not just dislike, but outright HATE. They deserve whatever nasty nickname I bestow upon them.

    It doesn't, really. What bothers me are the loud annoying activists.
    Which are only a small fraction of the movement.

    My reply was a reluctant agreement BTW.
    I know.

    Sometimes I feel you're needlessly rude when you call some characters by infamous nicknames. It doesn't help the debate, sorry.
    What do you mean?

    Why does the idea of equal female representation bother you?
  15. BettyNewbie

    That's still more than "all the characters up to 4th Gen," and I know that I probably missed a few. (Like Phoebe and possibly Liza & Tate.)
