    This might answer your question.

    Believe it, or not, there was once a time when the Republicans were the party of progressives and the Democrats were the party of racist bigots. This began to change in the 30s with FDR and the New Deal (which brought the Democratic party more leftward, eventually leading to the creation of a separate "Dixiecrat" party for the Southern racists), and it was finalized at the end of the 60s with Nixon and his Southern Strategy, which brought the bigots over to the GOP for good.

    We've had many female Evil Team executives, but never a female Evil Team leader, now 6 Gens into the franchise. What's up with that, GF?

    "Nurse Joy still looks pretty/hot" Maybe, but I prefer the classic ones.
    See, now, you know how I fell about Lance.

    The best part is there's literally millions of them so you can create your own OC Nurse Joy.

    Also, there was one in GSC whose hair was green instead of pink.
    Believe it, or not, the Pokémon Center nurses weren't always meant to have pink hair. In RB, they had dark hair and otherwise, looked nothing like Nurse Joy. It was starting in Yellow (and especially, RS) that the game nurses were more based on Nurse Joy.

    While Nurse Joy was eventually carried over to the games, sadly, the same could not be said for Officer Jenny. Despite Jenny appearing in Yellow, every single other cop that's appeared in the games has been male. Apparently, women are barred from becoming cops in the games' world.

    Oh, be careful. You don't want to take too many meds. Maybe, you should just try to rest?

    i...guess? that's what i've been told, anyway. not sure i'd agree necessarily...there are days i feel pretty but sometimes i feel kinda average. xD depends on my mood i suppose.

    those two names ring a bell but nothing more...ah, that's right, here's my anime list so you can check what you've seen from what i've watched, hehe.

    it does take skills to be able to put on makeup properly! even after years of practice, i still have much to learn.

    well, i'm glad you think so. i mean, of course girls can also look good without makeup, but the purpose of makeup is simply enhancing your natural beauty. psyduck those guys who think women who wear makeup are "fake".

    my favorite thing about death note is still this scene. xD

    oh yeah, that guy voiced literally everyone in anime history. but he has a nice voice and most of the characters i've heard him as are so funny and flamboyant. xD

    well, if we happened to be in front of each other, i'd say hi too. i mean, we're friends. P:

    hmm...i've seen death note but i didn't like it all that much haha. it's a bit overrated, imo.
    still better than twilight, omg. i've never watched vampire knight but vampire stuff in general never appealed to me.

    when people stare at me, i stare back until they stop. i can have a sharp glare when i want to so it makes people uncomfortable, hahah.
    hell, the other day when i went shopping, i felt i had an especially nice outfit and because of that, people, boys and girls, stared at me all day...some of them would even smile, but i smiled back at them when that happened. i think it's less rude than just plain staring.

    well, what anime series have you watched before? :o

    I think Kalos had way too many Pokémon IMO. I'm satisfied with around 200.
    200 is fine if the type distribution is good, which, sadly, isn't the case in most of the games. Luckily, though, GF seems to have improved on this from around Platinum-onwards (excepting HGSS and ORAS, of course). Even BW had a fairly diverse Dex, despite only containing the 156 Gen 5 Pokémon (and they were also wise to restrict the E4 to just 4 Pokémon each to avoid having to use dupes/NFEs/filler).

    Quote:
    They wanted to promote the GBA Slot and connectivity with 3rd gen. Not the best idea, though.
    And, that ended up being a lost cause as soon as the DSi was released, anyways. I still think one partial reason they made HGSS (as well as expanded the Dex in Platinum) was to allow DSi owners to complete the National Dex and so they could start phasing out the Gen 3 games for good. (Why else do you think they put the Kanto Starters, Hoenn Starters, Bird Trio, Mewtwo, and the Weather Trio in HGSS?)

    Quote:
    Scyther and Pinsir I think no one uses in 1st gen either. You can't get a Pokédex entry for them unless you trade them from the opposite game. At least in GSC they aren't exclusives!
    Actually, you can get both in Yellow. You can get them in the Safari Zone or at the Game Corner for 6500 coins each. However, your point still stands for RB.

    Quote:
    IIRC the new Pokémon in GSC were advertised as "newly discovered", so it made sense that traditions were built around old ones like Bellsprout.
    I should note that this was something GF stopped doing in Gen 3 when they introduced Regional Dexes. New Pokémon were no longer "newly discovered" but instead, just the natives of the region you're in. This was both a good and bad thing, good in that it allowed the new Pokémon to shine more, but bad in that it paved the way for formulaic Dexes that were full of obvious expies/substitutions for older Pokémon.

    Gen 6 seemed to hit the happy medium--It had a large, diverse Pokédex made up of Pokémon from all Gens, yet they still made sure that the Kalos Gym Leaders all had Gen 6 Pokémon as their aces so the new Pokémon wouldn't be completely overshadowed. (And, similar to Gen 2, Gen 6's lineup is low on expies/substitutions since these Pokémon were made to complement the older ones instead of replace them.)

    Quote:
    Another gen where this happened more or less was 4th gen. If you didn't bother with Honey, you wouldn't be able to catch and use things like Wormadam and Vespiquen. Munchlax itself was an obscenely rare Honey encounter. 4th gen was another gen which was a continuation of the old ones.
    This is especially true for DP, which didn't even have all Gen 4 Pokémon in the Regional Dex. Even worse, it didn't even make sense to do this, since DP weren't direct sequels like GSC were. They were just as much a "reboot" as RSE.

    Quote:
    But there isn't much bad about it. Sometimes you need to work to find and use certain things. Granted, Mothim sucked because it was an easy Honey encounter, but other things make sense to be difficult to find. Of course, if you try to catch a Yanma with Speed Boost in the Great Marsh you'll need a full day and a lot of luck, which is a bit exaggerated.
    Of course, stronger Pokémon should be harder to find. Things like Dratini would be completely broken if they were as common as Rattata and Caterpie. The harder something is to find, the greater the payoff.

    ... Which is why something like Dunsparce being rare just doesn't make any sense. It's not a particularly powerful or useful Pokémon, and it doesn't even have the aesthetic appeal of something like Clefairy, Pikachu, or Marill, yet it's just as hard to find and catch as Dratini.

    Quote:
    This is not only a 2nd gen thing, though. In 1st gen I think the only trainer who used Jynx was Lorelei. I don't remember anyone using Magmar and Electabuzz, and only one or two trainers used Mr.Mime.
    Yeah, the "Humanshapes" were pretty rare in Gen 1, too. (In fact, it wasn't even possible to have a non-traded Jynx or Mr. Mime until Gen 2.) At least, they were all reasonably strong, though, so it sort of made sense for them to be rare. Even in Gen 2, they aren't all that common in the wild.
