That's a good question Pinkie. I'm guessing it's because Pokemon have that anime and childish look with creatures made for little kids? I don't know really. Because Mario got that kiddie factor also, but somehow it still gets praised by the same people who hates Pokemon.

I dunno.From my take on it,I think Pokemon is a game made to be more accessable for kids. Ive found other games such as Zelda more difficult and requiring more skill than Pokemon, Im not sure if this is true, but it may be.

As for people losing interests in Pokemon in this forum, it gives me another question: Why does Mario and Zelda have for older gamers that Pokemon doesn't that keeps them supporting those series for the past 25+ years?
Nostalgia keeps them interested for a while... but eventually even nostalgic games get boring.

I'm still surprised to see people doesn't condone gay marriage in this day and age.

You know, Mr. X, you have a valid point.

I'll jump on the bandwagon then.

As much as I want to send a message about the issue, I'm just too lazy to change my profile picture/avatar. Cause I like my current one too much. It's a good cause and I support the idea, I just like the profile picture I have alot. Plus I don't like following Facebook trends much. No offense to anyone following it.

Though I may or may not to this one just cause it's Pokemon.
Spoiler:


Or one of these cause they're hilarious.

Such a shame that Misty is no longer in the anime Totally my first cartoon-crush. I like Skyla's design and I've always liked Green. Elesa simply looks like a vocaloid to me.

Those last three are pretty funny.

WARNING: lengthy wall of text ahead. If you don't read it I will know and I will punish you I really won't mind, it's a lot of wordy explanation about my own thoughts; so if that doesn't appeal to you then feel free to skip it, I'll still love you.

I don't want to get 'wordy' as this is just the DCC so I'll try to keep this brief / lighthearted.

If anyone is prone to taking offense, I urge you to read my entire post before judging me.
For perspective, I am bisexual, and I'm an atheist. My parents were catholics and obviously don't approve of my life choices.

I haven't spoken to my father since I told my mother and him that I was gay, but I can't blame him as he completely believes in the catholic way of life. I wouldn't change that, as that's part of who he is.

It may surprise you that I really couldn't care less about equality activists, or even 'gay rights'. People will always be prone to bullying or repressing anything which is a minority; colour, religion, sexuality and so on.

In terms of childhood, if someone can honestly say that they went through their entire childhood with not a single incident of bullying, then I would be surprised. There will always be bullies, equality aside, if a bully wants to annoy / insult you they are naturally going to pick on the one thing that sticks out most about you, be it your race, gender, sexuality or whatever.
I obviously got my fair share if not more of bullying during education/childhood especially once I came out to my friends/family, but I wouldn't change that as it's part of what made me who I am today.

In terms of the adult world, I've met very few people who have been narrow-minded enough to take offense from my lifestyle choices and when I do it never bothers me. If I have the right to love who I want, then I can't exactly deny someone else the right to hate what they want. It may seem a strange perspective, but I think it's healthy. Everyone has their own lifestyle choices, and you can't expect everyone else to accept them.

In terms of religion I think this is even more true. You can't stop someone from being homosexual, but for that exact reason, you can't stop someone from following their chosen religion. If that religion tells them that homosexuality is wrong, then that's just unfortunate.

Maybe not, but pissing off all the Fundies is always good fun.

Also, appropriate Joker picture is appropriate.

Yeah I can understand your prospective. I don't really want to start an argument on the DCC since it's not a place for it. I'm Catholic, but I don't 100 percent agree on the Church's stance on homosexuality. In fact I really don't have much of a stance on homosexuality in general. I have many gay friends and so I try to support them and not hate them for their sexuality. But also I have many Catholic friends who are against it and I really don't want to side with them.And it's hard to change their or anyone's opinion either way so I just stay neutral. So I choose to not care either way in general. It's still sad people do get bullied for their sexuality, race, religion, etc. Though you're right too. Even now when blacks have rights to vote and be free men, they still get bullied and picked on. Though I respect your opinion alot.

Kid's are always spiteful little asses though.

Haiti. You get excluded from society if you're gay, they consider you worse than ****. I'm glad I'm not like that. And why would your parents do that?

Montreal is alright with gay people. We even got a gay neighborhood, so that tells it about how Montreal feels about gay people. Although, there will always be those asses who are homophobic.

I have no idea what the majority of my city (St.Louis ) think on gay marriage. I think Missouri is kind of more a republican state and St.Louis is one of the most practicing Catholic cities in America so I don't think it's really alot of people who support it here. And I believe Missouri doesn't allow gays to get married so. Though I don't think anyone here will kill you if you're gay, that's just awful. So most people are probably alright on it, or at least lot of my friends are.


And here's something to make this thread a bit more lightheaded. (And to sort of stray away from the topic. Go ahead to keep talking about it though.)



Edit: 1700th post. Woo.

Oh, God, I adore Misty. Especially her adult look in HGSS. Humina humina.

.....okay, shutting up now.

Before Black was released in the US, I played some of the translated version. Like a lot of fan translations the quality was a bit... iffy. Some stuff was translated properly, some stuff wasn't. Some of it was funny, some of it... well...

Like what Skyla says when you battle her. Her state of (un)dress made it even worse.

Was it only in the Japanese version? I can't remember what she said that's sort of suggestive. Her outfit doesn't leave much to the imagination.

In the meantime, new Epic Rap Battles of History:

Don't have a ss - Was using a flash card.

I can't remember exactly what it was but I think it was pretty close to "Lets do something very fun"

Edit - With her outfit, you don't need to imagine much. Pretty much everything is already shown for your viewing pleasure.
