    Looks like Ash's team now has a horribly unbalanced team, as he now owns THREE Flying types. 2/3 are weak to Ice, 2/3 are weak to Rock, and 2/3 are weak to Electric (adding Frogadier makes half of his team weak to Electric types). See this is why Goodra should've never left in the first place, so we could've prevented this mistake from happening, because as a competitive trainer, you want to have as little weaknesses as possible when developing your team to prevent yourself from getting 0-6 by a single type your team is weak to.
    I'd love to see Ash lose in the league because of the huge weakness he has thanks to all those Flying-types. If they have to come up with a new way to eliminate him in the Kalos league (assuming he doesn't use past-region reserves) then they should try and go down that route, getting swept by specific types like what happens when you don't balance your team enough.

    I've yet to watch the video, partially because of the length but also because, as it stands, I disagree. I did see part of the video, though, and I think it's not only unrealistic, but also a bit idealistic.

    I won't go on a long spiel about this, just note two things. The first of which is that Reggie, now more than ever, he's a video game celebrity. When Reggie's on screen, people get hyped, and ultimately he does well to provide a likable face for NoA (and, as a result, Nintendo as the West sees it. Until that dies off completely, firing him is not only unlikely, but its also unsafe, as it would paint Nintendo as a dubious and unfriendly company that cares as little for its employees as it does its fans. It would be a very bad move on a public level.

    Second, on to the "idealistic" part...this idea that Reggie is the reason for such a disconnect between Nintendo and Western Audiences seems...misplaced. Regardless of what the previous head of Nintendo might have done, these "would haves" are not only speculation, but also they deny the idea that NoA is a company. A company full of people with ideas and suggestions, a decision-making body as a whole rather than simply in parts with the head controlling the whole thing. If NoA fails at something, its a failure as a company, not simply on Reggie's side- he didn't make the decision alone but, as the head, he is the one who will take the blame.

    Ultimately, though, I reserve judgment on these things until Nintendo "fails". I like Nintendo quite a bit, and as a result, I really want to see them "fail". Their E3 conference this year, at least to the masses, was close to a failure, but they didn't really take a large hit for it. But true failure, hitting rock bottom at at least one point, is where we can really see the company opening their eyes to a larger future and taking chances. Once they've reached that point, then I'll say either way, but as Nintendo exists as a stable company I feel that firing either of these individuals would simply be a waste.

    Haha, that's good

    Ugh, it seems everyone is going to watch it except for me I'm stuck at school on a weekend, and I am trying to find a computer, but even the labs are full with people trying to study. Where are you watching it? On IGN?

    There may be some contributions from that realm, but that they're ultimately so small that you can't blame it as being causal.

    An economy leading towards a troubled flop means that there has been a mass misallocation of resources across the entire economy.

    I think the most significant factor as to why the economy is in such a floundering condition is you have 80 to 100 years of intertwining with governmental policy mixed which has ultimately skewed itself towards a very short time frame for seeing results or even mitigating damage.

    So for quite some time there has been a bit of a disregard for long term growth in a healthy way. Sometimes we see investments in such things that are ultimately fruitless and have very dubious use cases. Yet for the most part we see this hyper Keynesian focus on immediate consumption. After all, the man famously said "In the long run we're all dead anyways."

    And he's the main economist on which most economic models and theories have been founded. (At least in terms of the mainstream.)

    Now we could start trying to break it down into individual contributing factors, but you would cast a net so wide that the conclusions wouldn't be too helpful, I suspect.

    I think you're going to see a biiiig collapse followed by a shrinking governmental budget and a freeing up of the labor markets and other restrictions and -possibly- a foray into allowing competing currencies to arise. The less influence a State can exert over an economy, the healthier it will be in the long run. So we'll likely see a shift towards that so long as the political classes of the US and other faltering economies wish to stay relevant.

    Either that or they corrode their power base in a great flash of ignorance which will make quite the mess despite being recoverable.

    Given the current status of the world and new, exciting, emergent technologies - I'm hiiiighly optimistic. Falling prices in production, safer alternatives to government fiat, and a spread towards more individual power is reason enough to be chipper. I'm not saying a better future will come for sure, but the tools are currently available which can birth the better tomorrow we all desire.

    I hope they edit it as Energy Ball or Hidden Power when it airs dubbed, as I think the former has a similar animation.

    Apparently the latest anime episode had Scottie's Slurpuff using Electro Ball, a move it can't even learn since the move is like exclusive to Electric-types. I do have a feeling that in the dub that might get edited, like how they replaced the mention of his Treecko knowing Razor Leaf with Mega Drain.

    Also, Treecko's evolution into Grovyle must mean one thing... Greninja vs Sceptile at Kalos League. Please writers, make it happen.

I bought myself a new webcam from Best Buy yesterday. It's a 1080 HD webcam that can take pictures and has two built-in mics for voice chatting. I plan to use this to chat with someone special on Skype, who also uses a webcam, but if any of you also have Skype and a webcam and are interested in chatting with me, feel free to add me, but be sure to let me know who you are when giving a contact request, because I've had contact requests from spambots in the past.

Ever since I've watched XY060, I've constantly kept seeing that "gruesome" scene regarding Serena's hair, and it's been haunting my memories to this day. I tried thinking about Smash (particularly attack animations and voice clips of Bowser, Bowser Jr., Little Mac, and Shulk) to get out of my system, but it somehow keeps coming back. That episode has been affecting my concentration at college, losing my focus. My heart was recently aching a bit after I woke up, which could symbolize...

I'm dealing with a difficult choice that would affect my time at my new university. There's another math class I'm suppose to take, called MATH 413, in order to complete my major, but it's only available every odd year during Spring semester. My adviser never told me about this class, only recently by my Advanced Calculus professor, nor was it listed with the other math classes during my registration two weeks ago. Now I have to crash that class by Tuesday afternoon in order to add it to my schedule....

If you're a theme park enthusiast, then you'll probably know that Selfie Sticks are becoming all the rage these days, to the point they're being wrongfully used by people during rides and shows. Not only do they bring a nuisance to other guests trying to have a wonderful time, they also bring a huge risk factor to both other guests and the owner using it. It's becoming a major concern for fellow ethusiasts, so they're preaching for these parks to ban these items for the safety of these tourists....

I seem to be having some bad luck when trying to buy Majora's Mask-related limited editions. When it was announced that Majora's Mask 3D was getting a limited edition Skull Kid figure, I had to Gamespot the day after to order it, only until I was informed that they were out of stock. Then when it was announced that the New 3DS is getting a Majora's Mask theme, I head towards Gamestop at the time it opened and tried to order it. The employee was having trouble getting my order on the computer due...
