    for sure. XD
    but the evo level isn't adjusted what they did is I think intentionally select pokemon to put in the early levels that don't evolve until very late, like we have riolu, electrike. makuhita, vanillite, spheal, and alolan sandshrew for exampe.

    riolu asside all of those pokemon don't evolve until over level 25!, and if they have a 3rd form its like lvl 50. riolu is friendship based so that's even further away, and while normal sandshrew is like 22 or 28, the alolan form requires an ice stone. So yeah because of the wild encounter choices we're forced to fight pokemon in mid or final evolution, with for the most part baby variants! That's crazy. lol


    Oh and I got my post up and updated, did you get the notification?
    The patch is up now. There's still a few bugs where rival battles seem to not want to use the different learn sets,
    I'm testing it not so hopefully gym battles are working fine.

    But for the most part I was able finish the whole thing, thanks to my post getting delayed.

    Thanks! I appreciate that! :D

    Haha yeah I'm good just vibing under the radar for now as well. LOL okay, I'll admit it. Other than you, Tyler is the only irl name I've learned on here so far. You'd think after like 5 years I'd know more than that, but names aren't quite my strong suit. XD

    Yeah it's in my backstage section, it is just now occurring to me that they might assign access to certain staff sections based on position. Here's what mine looks like: (I am very bad with CSS and I can't figure out how to resize this image so it is very big and you may have to scroll to the right to see the whole thing lol)
    Spoiler:


    Ah digital art is so cool! I've been finding a bunch of new artists to follow on twitter. I feel that tho, I have taken up many short-lived hobbies lol. *sideglances at my banjo* It's so hard to find the time to pursue that stuff, especially because I usually just feel like relaxing when I finally get some free time. Maybe you could get a cheaper tablet and then see if it's something you want to stick with?

    That's awesome! I hope that keeps up for you, I'd imagine it only gets easier to find work as a video editor or a graphic designer the more work experience you get so you're probably on the right track! But that's just my best guess as a person who has only had one job in their life LOL. Video editing can be pretty fun. Do you get to edit commercials and stuff?

    ugh I had a pretty lengthy response written, pokecommunity logged me out and deleted it.

    It was eye opening. The first experience I can recall with somebody like that. Those little interactions make you realize you were talking to a monster. (Such as him coming to my desk and reminding me about homework). Our vice principle was an awful person too. She just randomly walked into our gym class once and lined us up. She then went on a rant, about how we were vermin, nobodies, and about how our parents lied saying we were special. It was a weird school, my high-school felt like a haven after I was out.

    Ehhh it's probably a combination of both. She gets tons of donations and I doubt all of them are adults. I was curious about the hype so I checked out the stream for a few minutes. Nothing seemed that special to be honest. Probably never going back either. Apparently it's really easy to get banned too. And I checked out her points rewards you get for spending time in the stream. like a million points will get her to mail you stickers. That was sort of funny actually.

    I don't even know what death stranding is. (I guess a video game because that's what Dunkey covers). Enjoyment is subjective, in the end if you enjoyed something I don't see the reason to get upset. He doesn't like JRPG's either from what I remember.

    I love the moderation on here. They just hang out like everybody else, and there's no sense of pretension. Threads are only closed if it's actually necessary. I bet your a great fit, and I hope your doing well.

    great! :)
    speaking of unbound, its kicking my butt, insanity mode is no joke. I didn't even realize the extra layer of difficulty in the rom until 3 hours in, but every pokemon you encounter in the first few areas evolves late. I've got 3 teams of mons over lvl 20 and only my starter has evolved!

    :D yeah definitely did, I put both of you in quoutes for the post, so when it gets out of mod que you should both get a notification as soon as its up. (I think)
    I think it's fire red 1.0, and it may work for squirrels idk, I tested really quick, on the new rom I got, but I was a little rushed because it was getting late and I wanted to get it up today. But it does work. I just don't know what version I downloaded.

    But that version of fire red worked for patching unbound so it should work for what you have. Let me know if it doesn't when the time comes, and I'll make a new patch.

    Awesome! looking forward to it.
    and lol yeah I get it. :) but hey by the time you see this you may already know about it but..... ,



    I did the thing!!
    I made a metronome based rom hack. :) its fire red based and uses a ups patch so you'll need nups if you want to try it out.
    Just waiting on my thread to get through moderation.

    It's not done done, but its playable and pretty fun imo. :)

    I made sure to give a shout out to colours for the idea too.

    Ahh! That's a great name for it! I'm torn between that and "Wikipedia Portal". Your's sounds like a real name though XD. If I do use that, would you be okay with that? Thanks!! I'll send you a link when it comes out!

    The planning is so cool to see! I haven't gotten to participate in anything event planning wise but it was fun to see everyone planning the last get-together. Haha, that would be crazy, I'm definitely with you there, I can't imagine having the responsibility level of Sheep or Tyler. I can barely get around to posting half the time lol.

    Ohh, yeah The Signal is the social media planning hub so that would make sense.

    Hey, that's a pretty cool job! Has it inspired you to make your own art at all? Photoshop is great! I usually use it to make monstrosities or to fix up old photos that my grandma keeps finding XD.

    Well, in a way, mass communication is still your job! Just maybe not in a way you could've guessed. Are you looking to do this long term?

    It's nothing too interesting. I'm going to keep this brief because the full story is gross. He was a child predator. So sad....because he was one of those beloved teachers who could make all of us laugh. That was like 7 years ago so I have no idea if he's still in prison. my middle school was a mess.

    It's one of those things that some people will playfully tease them, and others take it overly seriously and are genuine with the hatred. Speaking of wealth, can you imagine being a parent and finding out your kid donated $500 to a girl named "pokimane" online? It's surely happened, and ouch. MCU is fun. Some films are great, others are meh. I love the Thor films and the first avenger film. I didn't enjoy the iron-man series. Currently watching ant-man and it's one of my favorites so far. Did dunkey really give death stranding a bad review or was he joking? I have a hard time telling with him.

    i got a weird quote from you in my notifications. i'm assuming it's bait for that "if you open you must post thread". (especially because without opening it, i could see your most recent post was "It worked"). i could be wrong but i'm guessing it was a mass quote. It's a fun thread idea and it's funny what it's evolving into.

    I guess that's a fair point. At the same time I have a soft spot for teachers, and I think it's also one of those jobs that takes a special person to do. Controlling a room full of 25 kids, some of which will purposefully "rebel" against you. They don't get funded enough for yearly class supplies, so they pay from their own wallet. Speaking with one teacher, I also learned it's one of the more mentally draining professions. There's no "slow days or easy days" with children. Free time after the job is spent grading papers and dealing with parents. He was wrong to insult another profession, at the same time I have no hard feelings. I had many worse teachers. (one who literally went to prison).

    Internet culture right now seems to be hateful against simping right now. His reaction made it worse, they had already turned on him. I might be wrong, but I think it started from pokimane. She's a woman who streams on twitch and people send her absurdly large donations. These people donating get called "simps" and I think it started the hatred. It's weird because I've been binge watching all the marvel movies, which are absurdly long. (right now am about to watch age of ultron, it's my first time watching these). But I can't get through an 8 minute dunkey video.

    I wish I could tell you. I'm not much of an expert on memes, but maybe rick rolling? That seems to have had longevity.

    I'm pumped to make it! Haha I'll let you in on it, I know you won't leak it to the press. XD Basically I'm gonna be summarizing Wikipedia pages, but in like a fun, immersive way. That feels like a terrible description, it's more entertaining than it sounds I promise LOL.

    Having access to all the staff pages is so cool, it feels like I'm touring Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. XD It's a totally chill environment! Who knows, maybe you'll be the main admin one day!

    Yeah! I really enjoy it. Oh huh that's odd. It just links to the most recent post I made in "The Signal". Oh, that sounds really neat, I'd love to see it!

    Sorry, can't remember if I've asked before, what are you doing for a living rn/what are you studying in school?

    Teacher didn't care much, but he was super passive aggressive about it. I'd wake up and hear "I know some of you won't amount to anything, and that's okay. If you want to sleep in class you can be 30 and pick up trash". it's obvious he was referring to me. and I mean I don't blame him for being upset.

    Idubbbz took a hit last year. Someone accused him of simping, and he got really defensive over it. Unfortunately with how the internet works, that was the wrong response. He seems to have rebounded quickly though. But here's leafy's new channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY_naQGQMrvi4inRbYNvhFQ. He's being pretty tame right now. Dunkey is strange for me, because he's exactly my kind of humor. But I have trouble sitting through his videos. Charlie I don't find very funny, but he's a good speaker.

    Yeah true, it's better that it doesn't overstay it's welcome. memes cycle in and out.

    WOW I am so sorry I couldn've sworn I replied to this I was like "huh Roni must've forgotten about this conversation" *facepalm*

    I hope so!! Writing episodes would be the dream job, but obviously, I'd be cool with working in TV on any level.

    Haha, I know, I've changed it like twice now XD. I'm pretty happy with this one though, so I'll probably stick with it for a while.

    I definitely get that, that's part of the reason I would much rather work in a more behind-the-scenes job like a writer than doing something that's extremely public like being a YouTuber. Although I plan on eating those words soon as I'm currently working on a series for YouTube right now LOL.

    So glad you joined staff! It's a great fit for you. I just make posts on Twitter, but I also do the research for them. (at least, some of the posts. We have a few people on the twitter team that also post) Recently, I've been the one doing the trivia tuesday posts. My archive is running a little low though, so I'll have to find some more cool facts.

    My classes start in a couple days. My attitude right now is "bleh. zoom classes". I always slept through my algebra class in 8th grade. I'd go to sleep near the air vent seat and wake up at the end of class.

    It doesn't end there. I'll refrain from linking too many videos, but Leafy had a stupid response. He attempted to counter the chin stuff through bullying Idubbbz on his hairline. Idubbbz responded in a second video by shaving his hair off on camera. He was just like "Fine. This is my hairline, big deal". On leafy's smaller channel, he recently posted something about his chin. From that, I just infer he's still bothered by it all these years later.

    There's one small youtube channel I'm thinking of making a dollar donation towards. Honestly I'm just not one to do it. It does seem like a nice way to show support. But getting a message read sounds fun. I'd probably be worried they might ignore or not see the message, making it a waste of money. (But I think you can charge back)? I don't think AVGN made a video on 2k20, however it seems like something he would do. Being overly corny is his entire shtick, so if your not into that it makes sense. There's a youtuber named "Nakey Jakey" who reviews videos while he bounces around on a yoga ball.

    I think that meme with the real actors must have been the season finale. I'm not seeing them pop up much anymore,

    Got my type fixed, the problem was the program I initially used, had to go back to an older copy of the rom and start over but its working great now.

    Aww I was kind of looking forward to raising litwick, having both litwick and phantump sprites would have been awesome. oh well. uh yeah I do want to set mine up like yours. thanks :) and do I have to create another thread for hall of fame/completed mons or do I put that in the same one?

    The icon thing is going slow, and far more complex than I thought, I can't seem to find a really good guide, well I found one but its for emerald, so I'm cross referencing with the first guide I used for fire red, but I've already followed some of those steps so data is in different places. Luckily when I was getting started with romhacking I setup my folders with multiple redundancy for roms. So I have multiple copies of completely untouched ones. So now I have my clean one side by side with my current version in hex maniac, to compare with.

    Like I said its slow, but I think I'll get there.

    Glad you like the changes I made, to the typing, :) I knew I thought it was a good idea, but I couldn't know for others.
    Yeah making more direct type relations like the light vs dark thing, is interesting to me, because like at that point its, not
    oh gotta switch to this other type that resists it but is strong against it, but the winner would come down to the pokemon themselves not just their typing.
    physical attacker vs special atker etc. stats and movesets.

    Several of the changes are like that actually changing certain things to mess with meta, make things good that were otherwise bad.

    For example I have an idea to expand the ev system to allow for more growth, (I'm working/planning on making it less tedious) because right now evs are great, but they're
    not gonna be the difference between what makes a pokemon worth using, that's base stats.

    But in the show you can train to overcome initial boundaries so I wanted to do something like that.
    I think it would be pretty cool, best case you're unshackled from the typical pokemon choices and can use anyone. If you put in the effort to train them.

    Because sometimes the evolved form looks dumb lol, and I'm just gonna say it, sometimes you just wanna use the cute version.
    But babyforms just aren't viable as is.

    On a slightly related note did I tell you about my cleffa in blaze black?

    back to the types though, yeah I get what they were going for with the fairy type strengths and weaknesses, trying to weaken dragons (for some reason) and make normal types better, they just went too far.

About Me

  • About Roni
    Quick Self-Introduction
    If you see me posting a lot around the forums, I'm prolly grinding my VPPs lmao.

    Shoutout to MM980 for the really cool battle background
    Biography
    I'm a dude from the Philippines who writes and speaks English better than my own native language lol. You can thank my family for being one of the lucky few with cable back in the day and constantly exposing me to Western cartoons and movies.

    Also, either I'm ever so slightly on the spectrum, or I'm just a really weird individual. I talk to myself a lot, and quite loudly. I unconsciously do it whenever I'm thinking of stuff and have been caught several times to my embarrasment. I've already had my fair share of irl people calling me weird and mentally abnormal. Another piece of evidence is that I'm quite socially inept, as in, it's hard for me to "read the room" or get social cues unless I'm explicitly told. I've had to actively train myself to do that, and I'm thankfully doing somewhat of a better job now. Lastly, I don't know what it is, but I always feel like I gotta "try" to be normal. I've had to "study" how my irl friends behave in different social settings and try emulating them. I think that's how I've become such a good observer and listener. I literally need to be else people will see me as a freak.

    Anyway let's get that out of the way because I don't know where I'm going with it.

    I'm a casual fan of many things, it's hard to list them all here. I love everything about gaming PCs, graphic designing via Adobe, playing my guitar and coming up with music stuff, playing CSGO, GTA 5, Pokemon romhacks every now and then when I feel like it, etc. It's whatevs.

    I'm also naturally introverted, so I do enjoy people's company, but I prefer that of those I already know and am comfortable with. And regardless of who I hang with, I'mma need to isolate to recharge. The usual. I'm more ok with isolating for longer periods of time as opposed to being with people for the same period.

    I'm very risk averse; I try to always the take the roads of least resistance whenever possible. I think this stems from not properly developing a good work ethic, and almost always cracking under pressure. My comfort zone grows so slowly, and whenever I get out of it, most often not by choice, I become such a mess and hurriedly scramble to get back in. I'm working on this, just not as consistently as I'd want to.

    Lastly, I try my best to be easy to talk to. I aspire to break through my weirdness, my introvertedness, my ineptitude, my inconsistencies and shortcomings, my short temper, and all other bad traits and be someone people would wanna be friends with. I like being alone, but I don't like being lonely. So please, don't hesitate to get in touch with me and just talk about anything! I'm always working on being better at socializing after all :)
