    Will be taking some time off from PC. I suspect I have a serious medical issue but will have to get it verified in the coming days and if I'm right, I'll likely require major surgery at the ripe old age of 32 XD. Not something one wants to say but my stubborn Iris/Scottish pride has prevented me from addressing this until now.

    Hopefully things go well and I live to see Serena return again.

    True, I can't think of a Season ending with Ash having a Pokemon evolve(several have ended with him catching or adding a Team member though(Chimchar and Gible come to mind)) but there's always a first time for everything as they say.

    Granted I'm not 100% positive that Episode 81 is the Season finale as it doesn't air until July 5th since we have a week break before Episode 80 airs June 28th. When Episode 80 airs, they might reveal future Episodes like they typically do at the end of the month(if the season is still going that is).

    And even when we look back, the finale of Season 12 in the dub had Ash catch Gible. We've never had a dub season end with a main cast's Pokemon evolving as of yet.

    Episode 81 is another Battle Royale episode involving our infamous Masked Royal wherein he faces an opponent doing dirty tricks. Torracat takes offense to it and steps into the ring wherein he will either learn a new move or it’s going to evolve. While I understand it hasn’t been a Torracat long(much less done much of anything in its second stage), I feel we have a good chance of getting our final form here(if only to get Icinium-Z). Who knows, Ash and Incineroar May get the Z-Crystal that Episode(which as of right now is the season finale).

    Are you sure there's a hint to Torracat evolving into Incineroar?

    Oh and Episode 81 is likely the birth of Ash’s Incineroar(or it learning a new move). Would make an ideal end to the Japanese season if that’s the case.

    Watched native dub of Episode 79(waiting on Subs that ought to be up this Evening) and there are more “Hoenn” hints with Rayquaza making an appearance. Last time we saw it was during Iris’ special in Johto but being a Hoenn Legendary, the only person confirmed to be in Hoenn right now is Serena(Dawn is rumored to be there but she left for Johto Wallace Cup at end of her last cameo and May has been everywhere practically(but went back to Johto after her cameo)).

    So although Episodes 82 and beyond have yet to be revealed, they are majorly hinting on something occurring based on the last two Episodes. Serena return? May return? Who knows at this point but the teasing is driving people banana’s lol.

    I think I've made up my mind that I won't be getting LGP/LGE. It just reeks of cash grab and I may opt to not bother with Generation 8 with the way things are going.

    So you’re basically against Affirmative Action since it’s the exact opposite of what MLK pushed for. Namely instead of gaining opportunity by their character and work ethic, let’s give them opportunity simply because they happen to be Black, Hispanic or some “under represented” group. Holding that position is perfectly reasonable because your basing it on a blank slate or a rubric you can apply to anyone, regardless of ethnicity, gender or orientation.

    *Shrugs* Only a matter of time before their crusade boomerangs on them to expose their hypocrisy. Namely when their minorities are running things, will they advocate with the same fervor for those that are no longer getting the same opportunities. Obvious answer is a “No”.

    Anyways, I never got into Social Media because it’s rarely ever to your benefit and it’s Big Brother x 9000. Plus what you post is there for all eternity and you can’t take it back(Despite claims to the contrary).

    You want to know something terrible about me? The twerps on social media accuse me of being racist, when I'm only against minorities because of how much modern entertainment is giving them special treatment and representation by badly-written characters whose sexuality and/or race is their only character trait.

    Tumblr just sucks, and these racist accusations are what caused me to quit Twitter.

    Dear lord I wasn't the only person to get that reaction regarding performances. Someone got triggered big time lol...

    Oh and 78 was pure filler as far as I'm concerned. Two UB's with Lycanroc's unique Z-Move for the first time. With what they did to catch the two UB's though... are they hinting at "performances" making a return? Just saying its eye-raising to say the least.

    Also, I can't believe I'm saying it but this song fits Wallace(and to a lesser degree Steven Stone) perfectly:

    I blame the recent marathon of Phineas&Ferb XD

    I haven't watched the video yet but I haven't bought a Pokemon game since my Generation 1 days when I was still in Middle School(when Yellow came out). Friend bought Gold version and hence I got a taste of what Johto and Generation 2 was like but since that day, I've largely been ignorant of the Pokemon gaming scene(hence abilities, natures, IV's/EV's and all that strategy stuff I have like ZERO knowledge on in addition to the 600+ Pokemon that have debuted since then. I've kept tabs on the Anime though, hence characters that appear in the games but not in the Anime(Wally, Zinnia, Lisia, etc.), I had no idea existed until like a year or two ago).

    I've always thought that you make your money and garner loyalty from fans on one-time transactions. Having monthly subscriptions or charging money for continued access(like most RPG's, hence FF14, WoW and even EVE I don't play because they charge you for the game AND to play over time. Its why I love Starcraft 2 because its a one time cost to buy the game and online play is free).

    What this is going to lead to is people choosing not to buy their product or seeking out third party people that they've never met before and blindly trusting them to do a trade. I can tell you right now that criminal elements could use this to their advantage(as sickening as that sounds).

    What are your thoughts on this video? This is pretty much the reason why I won't play any new Pokemon games, because I am heavily against the idea of paid online services and the companies choosing profit over the loyal customers.

    While Switch Online's subscription fee isn't as huge as Xbox or PlayStation's, he still brings up a strong point that the younger fans may be turned away from Pokemon in the future solely because they can't afford it. Same goes for people in low-income families like me, which is pretty much why I won't be playing LGP/LGE, 8th Gen and on. Also, loss of the GTS and Wonder Trade from LGP/LGE will make it much harder to complete the Dex, outside of obviously affording the subscription and heaving to interact with trusted traders (such as in PC's own Trade Corner section).
