    Echoing what droomph said (and what RL said.) Wouldn't it be nice to physically pet, hold, hug, etc a real pokemon? Well we have a touchpad. WTF is the big deal? Touching a pokemon with a stylus. We're not doing heavy petting or anything sexual- so why are you looking into it that way? It's a game for all ages: and the same goes for the fairy thing.

    tbh I think you should just move on if you're going to be like that.

    1) And your reason for directly quoting me was...? Considering that the character that you play as is the one you're looking at most often, it only makes sense that I don't want her looking like Sasquatch. Or Hilda.

    But yeah, part of me wishes she was ugly so I wouldn't even have to deal with another Pokemon game.

    2) Oh, God, that travesty. How did a game that has you touching some of nature's most vicious beasts even get green-lighted - and why wasn't it slapped with a "Mature" rating and restricted to being sold only in adult-entertainment stores?

    3) I'm not against a new type in general, but "Fairy" just sounds so childish and immature. Then again, I suppose I can't expect much from a franchise that chooses a tiny yellow rodent with a creepy grin as its mascot.

    Also good reads:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnesium_phosphate

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrafluoroethane

    4) Already moved on to Fire Emblem (the whole reason I bought a 3DS, and it beats the pants off anything Pokemon). And really, there are only two new ideas that I have real issues with - that creepy touching simulator and the whole riding Pokemon thing (for the record, I never particularly cared for the way Fly and Surf had you riding your Pokemon - just like cars are for land transport, private jets and luxury yachts should have been used for air and water transportation). For the Fairy type, I just have an issue with the name chosen for it. For the "horde" battles, I actually point out a good secondary way it could be used - the bad guys ambushing you. And my complaint about the rivals is because the series isn't going in a new direction with them - instead of creating an all-new scenario where the rival turns (or starts out) evil and moves up the ranks of the villainous team to become a top leader in the organization, we get stuck with another (group of) "buddy"-type "rivals" who are bound to once again have personalities that grate on my nerves.

    Everything else, I'm mostly neutral about. The revealed Pokemon, like Gen V's, are pretty much "middle of the pack" - none that stand out as being especially awesome or especially horrendous. The 3-D graphics, 8-way movement, and the main female character are currently my favorite aspects of these new games, and are enough to maintain my interest. At least for now.

    But admittedly I'm not good with change. I still want cars to be huge and styled with no regard to aerodynamic efficiency, I still use a standalone VHS player, and it wasn't until last year that I even got a cell phone (no kidding - I got all through college with my trusty cordless landline) and I still don't text (Holy bad grammar, Batman!) I also hate Windows 8.

    I'm sorry but I have to say this to you and everyone who thinks this game is a pushover.

    I don't get all of you guys' hate. I love the game's ideas so far! This is probably because I naturally get into new things (dubstep, for example) but I don't get the people who sit around complaining about the "new direction this series is headed." I mean, I've complained about every Gen since the time I was disgusted with the Gen IV, but then a couple weeks in I realized that they are actually not the end of Pokémon they are so bad, so I either decided to deal with it and move on to another series (Fire Emblem, perhaps?) or try to find the good in every game, as I did with both Gen IV & V.

    I think Fairy type is much better sounding than the other types people were speculating. Light, Sound, Magic,etc. It seem more like a Pokemon type than those if you ask me. I really don't get why there's so many people against it...I guess no one can accept change.

    Good read.^

    Quick update for anyone who cares (WARNING: ROACH ALERT!)

    If I preorder it's only going to be to ensure that I'll get a copy and it won't be sold out in stores.

    The landlord is aware that it's the prior tenant's problem, I've had to contact her every other day to send maintenance up to my room. On the 4th an exterminator came in and sprayed all the edges and corners. And today the maintenance man came in to lay traps and set off one of those chemical bug-killing bombs to try to get rid of them.

    These chemicals are wreaking havoc on my allergies, but I can't keep up with killing these things myself:/

    I'd preorder if it came with something nice, like a poster.

    As for roaches, TELL THE LANDLORD ASAP before they say it was YOU and not the other guy. It is a health hazard and, at least in Canada, they need to deal with it. Not you. They have to meet certain standards for renting and can't go around renting bug-infested units.

    30 Days of Pokemon: Day 22

    I've always wanted a Gym Leader who has varying types instead of just specializing in one. It makes the person more of a challenge, making the trainer have to actually choose wisely about what Pokemon they'll use.

    She's on an adventure. It's easier to present her trainer card if it isn't buried deep within her bag of infinite holding!
