    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.

    No prob, and yeah poison is still super effective lol. After I did that fairy lore research I actually liked that part of the type match ups.
    What I did was change dragons attacks to not very effective instead of immune, and make them resist physchic and ghost, and finally made them weak to darkness, as well as being super effective to it,(as they already were) we don't see many (any) types that are complete foils for one another so I thought it would be an interesting light vs dark thing.

    Oh and I removed the super effective to fighting thing. (that was just harsh)
    So summary (with astericks by my changes)
    Resist: dragon*, ghost*, fighting, psychic*, bug
    Immune:*
    Super effective def: Steel Poison Dark*
    Super effective atk: Dragon, Dark
    normal atk: fighting*

    Had a little setback though, my icons weren't perfect as I thought I accidentally replaced an existing icon, so I'm working on that now.
    but on the positive side I finally found the trainer flags and found out how to make battles repeatable without having to rely on vs seeker.

    Had a few other setbacks, but I'm staying positive.

    And for sure on collecting mons. :) I just made my journey thread a little while ago, but I feel like I'm missing things, am I supposed to say what challenge I'm going for now?
    Also is my birthday mon already 100?

    Hey Buddy, I just got my first virtual pokemon! :)

    Nothing tops this one. The voice actors for Franklin and Lamar actually got together and did a reenactment of the cutscene.

    I admit I kind of enjoy it. My college is super low maintenance. It feels like high-school without...the stuff that high school is associated with. The atmosphere is extremely relaxed, so it's easy to just hang out. Our campus has been closed 10 months due to covid. Unfortunate.

    Let me know what you think of it. The video is brutal, he really cut straight into leafy. Especially the part where he shows leafy being timid in public, being poked fun at by his fans. The original video had about 50 million views if I remember correctly. YouTube has done a good job of keeping it off. The uncensored one I linked is the only one left standing. Do you follow charlie's twitch channel? It looks interesting...but I just don't use twitch anymore.

    It's beyond a glitch fest. I was playing with someone, and both our characters vanished into thin air. We were still able to hit each other. It was like spongebob and patrick fighting with the invisible spray. Did you ever watch The Angry Video Game Nerd?

    Your welcome. It plays out like a cheesy 80's horror film. But it's fantastic and lovable.

    So about my hack, I was able to add the fairy type, but I did a bit of editing with the type relationships because I didn't like the normal relationships for the fairy type.
    And I changed some normal moves to fairy type and adjusted some learn sets. After some play testing it seems really solid. My fairy pokemon are holding up well,
    and the game ai is even acting accordingly. I had the rival fight in cerulean and I got surprised by a metal claw from his charmander!

    Its not perfect yet, because I later realized I replaced an existing graphic when I added my Icon, so now the game doesn't have a place for it, and I can't fit it in elsewhere.
    So I need to figure out how to expand the icon graphics, I need to either make a way to repoint to my custom type icon, or make a new expanded table and repoint there.

    Don't know how it'll work yet. But that's a few things done at least.

    I am sorry bro I wasn't able to reply you back, because from past few days I was preparing for my on going pre board exams.

    Aaron thank you for offering help to a Noob CSS coder. I mean that, CSS is a whole lot mew thing to me.

    BTW I believe that you also have a pretty damn stressful schedule, because of goin to office then managing personal life, Making Content for YT, Staying Active on PC etc. Am I right???

    And at last you asked me about someone special in my life, and the answer is........

    No, I am still single. And I don't wanna get into that again because I am already rejected and don't let that happen twice.

    And yeah of you don't help me in creating a good flair then you will face consequences...
    (Just a LOL bro! Don't take it SeRiOUsLy)

    There were a few personal reasons, but the biggest being that I am a college student, and you know the amount of homework and exams can get overwhelming. I'd start my classes at 7:30 AM, get home by bus at 2:00 PM, homework until about 6:00 PM. It sapped my motivation, and I enjoy using the site for leisure purposes.

    I'm happy charlie has grown so huge as a youtuber. It's also cool how he doesn't do much editing for preparation for his videos. Seems like he just sits in front of the camera and does his stuff in one take. If you want to see something interesting, I'll link the video that drove leafy off youtube in 2016. You might know what I'm referring to, but he was roasted so badly it's likely what made him vanish. Even YouTube removed the original video. This is a re-upload. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e08xNRqr2HU

    If you haven't watched WWE, it might even add to the hilarity. WWE is comical. And they don't exactly polish these games. So you might grab a ladder to whack somebody over the head, and the ladder might decide to have a mind of it's own and spaz all over the place. https://twitter.com/thezeehat/status/1347258437693042696.

    I loved Until Dawn. I got almost the entire cast killed, but that was my own stupidity. It's also a short game. Shouldn't take more than 8-10 hours.

    And yep, they really are great users. I'm happy to see them.

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 :)
