    I'm sort of scavenging around for stuff to play. I tried Wave Man's stage again to no avail, (had some trouble dodging the chains). Other than that I was trying out a couple "walking simulators", which is a term for a genre in which there aren't any gameplay elements. It's 99% percent plot, and you walk from point A to point B and listen to cut-scenes and dialogue. Sadly the stories weren't very engaging and I uninstalled both.

    One of them made a big deal on the start up screen about how there would be no hand holding, and it took things a bit too far. Not a single tutorial for the mechanics, and it didn't prompt you when leaving an area too early. Meaning you could miss parts of the story or do it out of context. What do you think about hand holding in video games? I might try some of the yakuza games next, since 4 is free on my subscription. I heard they had good plots.

    Oh I also beat Lance today. My final team was Feraligatr, Lugia, Nidoking, Amphrous, Miltank, and Espeon. I forgot how difficult Lance was, and I was underleveled without a proper ice type. I ended up spamming hyper potions, this time it didn't bother me to do so. I still won and probably saved myself 4-5 hours of grinding. I actually tuned into Werster's stream a couple times, it was interesting but I'm not one to frequently visit twitch anymore, so eventually I stopped. Also, are you looking forward to the Sinnoh remakes? I actually like the semi-3D art style. I wonder if it'll be in 3D or sprites this time for the Pokemon. I haven't been following pokemon news (I didn't even know there was a direct), so it came out of left field for me.

    I didn't know about introducing with a last name. There's a few things I wonder, but I hope that I'm not stereotyping. For example I always thought over in Japan people greeted each other with a bowing motion. Also isn't taking shoes off everywhere a custom? I had a Japanese martial arts instructor, he had us doing a bow frequently. I couldn't understand him most of the time because he would go in and out of the language, led to me struggling with things. But yeah Virginia is somewhat the same vicinity in the east, but it's a completely different state. Maryland does border Virginia to the north. I've actually been to Virginia quite a few times because our family would take weekend trips there. I think the people are much friendlier over in Virginia. This is annapolis (capital city of maryland), which I enjoy visiting because I think it's a lovely place. https://static.55places.com/blog/media/annapolismd-9181e10331377d0f4073111bc3349600.jpg.

    I completed Super Mario Bros 3 in a single 8 hour sitting. Awoke at 8:00 AM one day and played until about 4:00 PM. I probably will never do that again, but I can say the game has a difficulty spike. World 8 can be brutal, and it turns into one of those infamously hard NES games. But I think the rest of the game is fairly tame. I used a trick to gain 99 lives, and lost about 70 of them in World 8. But I think it's worth playing, you can really see where the series started getting its modern roots. Oh and Revenge of the King was fantastic. I forgot that it actually gives you the hammer for that fight. I think Lololo and Lalala are based on characters from another NES game?

    Oh I'm such a clutz sometimes and managed to do the worst thing today. I had my head in the clouds a bit, and spilled my anxiety medication into the bowl of water below my feet. So yeah that's not good at all. (Which is kind of why I was scurrying so hard for a game to be engrossed in), just trying to find something I can keep my mind occupied with for the time being.

    I beat the True Arena! 6 minutes and 54 seconds with the hammer ability. I didn't even end up needing all the healing apples.

    It's alright. I have infinite gratitude for the people I've met on here over the last couple of years, I cherish everybody and try to be timely with my responses. It's never felt stressful because I enjoy it so much. I have an astigmatism so that's what caused the headache. Now is a good time to reply because I'm trying the True Arena and failing, need a break.

    It's fun to get the freeze chance, but it just hurts so much to be on the receiving end. Especially on a competitive format where getting frozen can mean losing a pokemon you needed. Brick Break does remove Aurora but there aren't many Pokemon that choose to run it. Most pokemon that set up Reflect and Light Screen are psychic types, so Brick Break ends up being more of a liability than anything. They'll just force you out and set up those moves again.

    But yeah I really don't think stealth rock is available that early. If so, it would destroy Bugsy. But yep, Geodude is nearly invincible to Falkner, Bugsy, Whitney, and can give Morty a hard time. (except I think his gengar levitates in the remakes). Then proceeds to have a type advantage against Jasmine. It also annihilates the poison types of Team Rocket. It really does run through the first half of Johto, to such an extent I don't even want to pick one up just because I'd rather feel slightly challenged. Oh, if you want to go down a rabbit hole of those clips search up "werster". His bad luck can be insane. That clip I shared was one of the more tame ones.

    I wouldn't say that I was the loudest most of the time, (far from it, it's not my personality). but keep in mind it was my senior year. I had all my credits, was in a class with my best friends I had known for years. I was bound to get loud, and it was much more fun than going to class and just putting on headphones, which was 90% of my other classes. It's okay though, I understand the fear. But I also think most of those in the country would recognize you as a foreigner, and who would expect complete perfection from a foreigner. Maybe I'm mistaken, but wouldn't most appreciate the attempt? Oh the gym class was awkward. It was mostly kids younger than me and I didn't know any of them. Being in the senior in there, I stuck out like a sore thumb.

    So...Japan is like Hawaii then? (A small collection of different islands). For some reason I thought Japan was conjoined, shows how much I know I guess. I've never been to California, but I assume it's massive. It's a big celebrity place because it's the home of Hollywood. Lots of big youtube stars also move to Califronia. It's relevant to the conversation so I'll bring this up. I live in maryland, which is a small state hanging on the east of the U.S. It's right next to the capital Washington D.C, so it gets overshadowed. Do you generally enjoy Summer as a season?

    So yeah I did beat the Arena with the Sword. I completely destroyed Marx on the second attempt, so I guess the first was just nerves. I completed Helper to Hero with Plasma, which was insanely easy. I forgot Revenge of the King was a "hard mode" of Spring Breeze. Meta Knight mode was my absolute favorite so far. (took me 54 minutes for the entire thing, his tornado just made the boss fights so trivial). The True Arena is so tough, I don't know how I'll get through this. Like seriously, there's Masked Dedede, the Galactic Knight, And a harder version of Marx. And it only gives you apples to heal with. I might be here for a while. So the best thing about this bootleg copy is a fully working Super Mario Bros 3. I thought Pika Chu might have something to do with Pokemon, but it's just a picture of pikachu, then it makes you play tetris. I'm actually more curious about this now, so I'll be checking out more of the games.

    The first time I had a panic attack, I thought I was going to die. I went completely numb, kept falling in and out of consciousnesses (even in the ambulance), was shaking uncontrollably and couldn't dial anybody on my phone. They never got "easier", but my family became aware and I had somewhere to turn. There was never anything like it. Despite how well I'm doing, I hope I never have to go through another one of these again. It'a a miracle how much progress I've made. They were happening 3-4 times per night, and also in public places. (where I would hyperventilate). I've still had some anxiety, but my last severe panic attack was February 2020. Just over a year ago. That shows the progress I've made.

    It's okay. I would probably do the same thing (waiting until I had a keyboard). Hopefully I can keep this message going, but I have quite a bad headache and just responded to two other friends on here. I think I can do it though, forgive any odd spelling errors

    I do think Ice types are a bit underrated offensively. I mean look at Ice Beam or Blizzard, unless you have a bulky water type it's hard to feel comfortable switching into that move. Especially because your also messing with a freeze chance. One of my favorite things to run was Choice Specs Lapras. I almost hit top 200 with it. Aurora Veil is interesting, but yeah it's gimmicky unless you have an Alolan Ninetails who can set that move up whenever it wants.

    He starts with Scyther, so your pretty much taking a hit from U-Turn no matter what. And by the second badge that's an awfully strong thing to take. I no longer enjoy picking up Geodude. It really negates the entire first half of Johto, and it's a trade evolution, which I go back and fourth with having access. Right now I don't. Also it's funny how that cleffairy is just the bane of speedrunners. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBcawFamwGI. As for progress right now I just finished Pryce. And skipped Jasmine because her levels feel wonky.

    We never had to speak in our French class because it was computer based. Even though I was the loudest person in that class anyways. (Because it was senior year, and I had two friends next to me). So when you do end up going on the trip, do you think it'll go okay with the language barrier? It would be strange actually putting what you practiced...into practice. couldn't think of a better word. Oh, hilariously my gym class in senior year didn't have a teacher either. He quit within the first 3 weeks and they couldn't find a replacement. So our classes consisted of walking laps outside for 45 minutes.

    Oh I looked it up, it looks very neat and I see why you want to visit. It's always funny to me about Japan, because it seems so large, but it's really just a small island? Like, I heard it's about the same size as the state of California. So it wouldn't be too hard to travel around I guess. We did go to a Japanese Restaurant where the food was cooked in front of us at the table, so that was a fun experience. Might as well throw this here because I just linked it to someone else, but this is our dog. I love her so much. https://imgur.com/a/DAPiS9p. Do you attend the street festival every year? We have a medieval ren fest that runs locally, but covid stopped our attendance this year. I've never flown, but I guess that's the only choice for going to Japan. Unless your taking a cruise or something.

    Oh I forgot to mention it above also, I made it all the way to the arena in SuperStar Ultra, and lost to marx as we both had one health left. I was using the sword ability. He knocked out my ability, and I couldn't hold him off long enough to spit a star. That was a painful loss, but it said the goal was "13" so I still unlocked Revenge of the King. Losing power is never fun, I ended up playing this old 3rd party gameboy system. It was the funniest thing because it had all these made up games that didn't work. For example a game called "Pika Chu". Another called "Chess" but it wasn't chess at all.

    I don't mean to diss Melee. I loved the game as a kid and it was one of my first video games along with Link's Awakening. In a way...it's one of things that's nice to have good memories with, but trying to revisit kind of shows me they should be left as memories. I remember fearing the medication at first. I had never been medicated for anything. In the hospital they gave me xanax, (due to age related reasons she gave me something less addictive to take home). I'm so glad things have settled down. Often during a panic attack I would need to wake somebody up, but I always felt like such a burden for it. It was just too frightening and sadly I couldn't manage it on my own. As mentally strong as I usually am, it was the one thing I couldn't do.

    I have an affinity for ice types. Although I feel like they were created for a niche that isn't needed anymore. They seem to be intended as a 'late game' secret weapon against dragon types. Dragon Types seem like they were created as a 'final boss' type. That still holds true...but now Fairy types exist and are just so superior to ice types in almost every way.

    He does have metapod and kukuna, which is just free experience. But the scyther is such a monster. Hard to get a status off because he likes U-turning out. Constantly gets critical hits because of focus energy. You pretty much have to faint it 3 times because it holds a sitrus berry, and he gets a super potion. I feel like Whitney gets crippled by 'non attack moves' rather easily. Which even the developers must have noticed, because they gave Miltank a Lum Berry instead of a Sitrus Berry. But if you have something with sand attack, you can easily mess with her strategy.

    I haven't collected all the letters. Not really looking forward to going back through all the stages for them, because I can't remember which ones I missed. I could probably be fine without the ability, but you've made it sound rather worthwhile. Also wondering if I collect a letter and die, if I keep the letter. Or if I have to defeat the bosses all over again. On another note, we lost power here for about 6 hours this morning because of a bad hail storm. I did play cave story a bit...and realized I didn't save. So I made my way back to the bushlands. Then my DS lost battery. (at least I saved this time).

    I actually avoided the languages classes for most of high-school, as well as gym class. (until they forced me on my final year). I spent almost half the school day's not really being there. I was signed up for a program to work at a hotel, and it got me out of some of those miserable classes. Yeah our french class felt impossible...because there was no teacher. It was literally a computer program, and at the end of the week the teacher handed a written test.

    So Akihabara is pretty much a Japenese version of the normal game stores? (Like in the U.S it's gamestop). Oh I didn't know you were into crowds. That's not a super common thing to hear. Most people avoid times square for that exact reason. Ohh I did look up the snow festival. It looks very nice, but then I looked at the foods and I was interested in that. Said they have "okonomiyaki pancakes". I didn't really know Japan had a variant of pancakes. Similarly I've always found the snow dogs in Alaska to be quite beautiful looking (https://s3.envato.com/files/259029292/breed%20husky%20sled%20dogs4.jpg). Regardless, I hope your able to make the trip someday.

    While all public schools are likely loud, U.S culture in general is very loud, and it's also pretty encouraged in schools here. As a contrast, I've heard it's not like that at all in Japan. (by encouraged, I mean if you aren't being loud 24/7 in a U.S school someone will probably make a judgmental comment towards you). I wanted to do an assignment alone, since honestly I get things done quicker when I'm not distracted by a group. A girl in the back of the class started yelling at me, calling me anti-social. It was...really insensitive and I didn't get why she would do that. The worst part is that I didn't even know her at all.

    What your saying makes sense. Nostalgia is a funny thing. I get more nostalgic over TV than video games. I'd say 90% of games I enjoyed as a child, I still enjoy when I go back. (there are exceptions, and I'm hesitant to test this sometimes). For example I found Smash Brothers Melee almost unplayable. People are like..."When you learn the technical inputs, it controls better than the new games". But I don't want to learn the technical inputs. I just want to pick up and play. But yeah anxiety wise I feel like I hit drastic ups and downs. Sometimes I get very self critical and find it hard to speak with people, other days I can't even remember what was making me so anxious. Not sure if I mentioned it, but the medication mostly helps stop the physical symptoms. Mentally it's been my own self progress.

    I wouldn't say Lugia is my absolute favorite, because there's a few I like. (Rayquaza, Mewtwo because he was cool in the anime, Articuno, Dialga). So right now I'm at Whitney with a croconaw, togepi, nidorino, and a flaaffy. Also a paras, that I nicknamed "CUT", because it's just there to use the cut HM. It's been pretty standard. I lost to bugsy twice. Almost beat Whitney on my first try before the DS battery died. Unpopular opinion, but I find Bugsy much harder than Whitney most of the time.

    Yeah charge man. I don't like his ability. I keep thinking 'why does this exist'. I can never even hit a boss with it. Other than that, I tried Wave Man's stage and it's the coolest thing ever. It turns into a surfer mini game and this is my new favorite stage so far in the entire series. Especially the tubes. The entire thing is just amazing. Also the fact that mega buster seems so good, makes the bad abilities even worse. So far I've just been using Mega Buster on every single boss. I don't think I've even discovered a weakness yet, and that's really going to hurt me when I reach the boss rush at the end and I'm scrambling to figure them out. Is the wily's castle in 5 going to be difficult? I'd like to know if it will be a breeze like 3, or something to dread.

    I'm not sure how languages classes work where you live, but in the U.S it was just the worst. I was pretty much shoved into a Spanish class because I didn't have a complete schedule. I didn't like the kids in there so I requested to be in a french class instead. Is there anything specifically you have in mind for visiting in Japan? I remember you mentioning the real life anime locations. I'm very interested in the different dining locations of different countries. I loved the Epcot Park at Disney World, because it had all sorts of different kinds of restaurants from different places.

    I think this was only 3 days ago, but you wrote "I think it's fine to give advice you don't follow". I was like...uh oh I gave you advice? Better scroll down to see what I said. And okay it wasn't anything horrible. But yeah U.S culture is heavily sports oriented. Like, randomly class discussion can turn into the teacher talking about sports. Or you get to school and there's usually a big group talking loudly about sports. Not sure if I mentioned this, but the public schools in the U.S are really loud. I had 3 bus rides, and one was just so deafening.

    I made a topic about nostalgia, but honestly I don't get the feeling much. I don't understand what people mean when they say being "clouded by nostalgia" because the feeling is just so foreign to me. Like, does it bring back such good memories it distorts your view? Usually when I go back to something memorable...I start comparing it to my standards now and it's not good anymore. I'm okay thanks. Was just in a very worried state over the last few days, even though it was only random anxiety stuff. But I feel better.

    I'll often hang around Off Topic and Forum Games and spam cute anime girls!
    Biography
    I tend to talk about my interests a lot, notably Pokemon and Love Live, but I'm quick to mention anything else I enjoy so if you stick around me for long enough I'm sure I'm easy to get to know.~
    I came to PC from overseas on a different forum and I'm slowly settling in and finding people to socialize with, I feel like I may try to connect with people too quickly so please let me know if you need space!

    I often talk about Setsuna, this character I love, but who is she? Setsuna Yuki is one of my favourite characters from Love Live Nijigasaki who's passionate about things like anime and school idols and eager to talk about them. I really relate to her and thought a Setsuna theme for my account would be really pretty, and I've fallen for her.~

    If you're interested in getting to know me, drop me a message or swing into a thread if you see me active in!
