I am in the first stage of doing my first digital image of Pikachu shocking all the oil company's in the world that sit below below him. It's going to be my first digital picture ever, I want my first one to actually mean something. Ohhhhh I can't wait to finish this one, it's going to put my photoshop skills to the test!

I think the end picture will be truly stunning and can't wait to share it.

Quick question, I read the rules and see that creating a thread regarding a youtube video is disallowed due to their specificity, and I figure probably to prevent the boards from filling with spam advertisements from the makers of said videos as well. All fair enough. If there is a funny video I think people could appreciate, though (maybe about a certain US president and pokemon), where (if anywhere) is the right place to do so?

So my friend has been trading me shiny's he caught with his AR. He told me that they count as legit pokemon because it can't be proven they were caught with an AR's help. I can't use the RNG method to check while I am on campus so my question is, are these pokemon "legit"? Is RNG the only way to tell?

I don't know how you would check (I assume there is a way) but you'd rather not trade those shinies caught via AR codes here in PC. They are prohibited here as per Trade Corner rules.

EDIT: Maybe this would be of help to you: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpos...23&postcount=1

Its not crazy to think he is actually a pokemon. He could be a ditto due to obvious shape shifting abilities of them and he may have taken a liking to his current form. He could also be a corrupted mew as they can also shapeshift.

I want to be one of those who say that the first season is the best, just like I claim that I like the pre-GBA games better than the newer ones. But I have seen the latest movies and some episodes of the BW anime so when I go back and watch those old seasons, everything looks so... ugly.

A recent episode kind of shows what I mean quite well, even though the differences are mostly in shading and colors and quality of backgrounds. And "special effects". The old style was more cartoonishly fun, while the newer is more neat. I do prefer old, chubby Pikachu though. I guess you could argue he's gotten more slim from all the training lol





I like that they actually have some things that give the anime a bit of continuity, like Ash remembering all his old pokémon and travels and such........ even though he is still 10 and it doesn't make sense at all. I will rejoice the day PokéSpe becomes a proper anime, or movie. Probably never will, but I'll dream.

One thing I like about the original series is the attack animations tbh.

I prefer the newer ones. More shiny and gleaming, especially the water and fire. I did like the older grass moves better though. Bulbasaur's Razor Leaf was da baws, looking like a whirlwind around him rather than a few leaves thrown away. I think Chikorita started the trend of using only a few leaves in the Razor Leaf attack?

In a way, it's nice that they have made battles in the games more vivid and animated in gen VI, but at the same time, I most often disable attack animations because they take time and annoy me xD

I like how attacks were portrayed in the early arcs of the PokéSpe manga. There is a battle where a Mr Mime builds barriers all around a Heracross (I think) which makes it unable to reach out and battle, and thus has to forfeit. If I remember correctly. And Gengar used its shadow abilities to really sneak up on Green and Koga. Lots of creativity that we don't see in the anime and that can't really be shown in the games.

I appreciate that they sped up Gen V's gameplay after Gen IV's snail's-pace one. I don't disable the attacks in B/W2 unless I'm grinding or EV Training. But in sS/hG? I don't have the time to sit there for an hour watching you throw a fire ball. :/

Hahhaa, that is so true. I never finished a whole gen IV game....... Because I found them so slow after a while. That's probably it, I never thought about the reason but now I think it's probably because of the battles. Even though I turned animations off, I think? Maybe the system and waiting times were slow as well.

I did almost finish playing Black though, and I do remember that game feeling more smooth. Good thing Nintendo learn from their mistakes, I guess. :>

lol is the most popular word in this thread.

I remember posting in Pokémon General years ago. The cool people spammed the Other Chat DCC and me and my friends monopolized PCC, pokémon chit chat here. So much fun, so little actual talk haha.

Is pokémon still exciting to you? In some ways? Be it by following the anime, playing games, battling online, writing stories or something else. Or is the franchise mostly... memories to you? Dear memories, mayhaps.

The new generation doesn't excite me but hey I still get excited whenever someone talks about Pokémon with me. That's mainly the reason why I love Pokémon General so much, I get to talk about everything Pokémon and it's not just crumpled up into one generation and/or canon. What I'm hoping for this gen is an RSE remake. I would be totally excited by that and maybe I'd finally buy myself a new handheld console just because of it. :3

Heh, yeah. The games don't excite me in the same way now as when I was younger and my reasons for hanging around PC aren't solely focused around pokémon anymore. More around people! I guess I would feel a little thrill if I actually got to the endgame of a Sinnoh game at some point :p But it's the other aspects, or rather what can be imagined and pondered, that I still find interesting. Hence why I lurk this place rather than the pokémon gaming sections where many PC members maybe feel more at home xD There's always new people who find PC and who care mostly about the gaming experience, I guess.

Oh, I should get myself a DS too. At some point when I have more money, so not this summer. I'd love to have the Unova games on it, but I would't really care about other DS games so it would mean buying the console just to play pokémon. Kind of like when I bought my GBA... Totally worth it though!

I never finished a fourth generation game to be honest. They're a bit too slow for some reason.

There was no reason! Why would they make D/P/pL/hG/sS so ridiculously slow? The battle speed was horrendous and made grinding a bigger chore than it already was. Walking and running speeds felt like Ethan had weights on his ankles. I don't mind not having to play that game for any reason today.

Aaaah thank you for that, haha. I kind of thought I was the only one who didn't find the 4th gen games as fun as the others. Or, of course they were fun. It's just that my patience can only hold for that long and that definitely drags their entertainment value down.

GSC muted on VBA, now that's speedgaming. A bit too speedy, though.

There's never any type of "happy medium" with the VBA's... I think you can adjust the framerate/skip in the VBA options that make playing the game a little faster. You'll still have to mute it though.
