    I just heard about the latest act of misogyny from Pokémon Generations. They once again favored the male protagonist over the female protagonist. Bastards...

    Well, anyway, you may have heard that I'm taking a break from the TCNS for about a month. The reason is because I feel like I'll have more breathing room to check if later parts of the game function as they should.

    Oh, when I get around to doing the French translation, should I do it in Metropolitan French (the language of mainland France) or French Canadian? (I'll do Major Bob's dialogue in French Canadian for sure, considering he's "le Ricain survolté".)

    While I've been mostly ignoring Generations ever since Ep 4, it's been hard to ignore the blowup over the latest example of misogyny from the special.

    Many fans had been hoping and praying for Hilda to appear in Generations ever since it was first announced. Since she never appeared in the main anime, nor did BW get an animated trailer like B2W2, this means that Hilda is one of the few player characters who has never been animated anywhere. Furthermore, she has no cross-canon counterparts anywhere besides Adventures, and she can't even claim to have had her design used for another character like Hilbert's was used for BW Ash.

    In terms of forgotten/ignored/overshadowed PCs, Hilda is right down there with Green, and even she can at least claim to have appeared in something else besides Adventures. Kris even has an anime counterpart, even if it's a very terrible one. Hilda has none of that, whatsoever.

    And, then there's the FerrisWheelShipping factor. N x Hilda is, by and large, the most popular pairing to come out of the Gen 5 games and is one of the most popular game pairings overall. Many people really, really wanted to see a Hilda vs N confrontation in Generations just so they could finally see Hilda and N onscreen together and see their ship get some canon backing.

    Well, the last Unova episode of Generations just aired, and the special did what it does best and broke their hearts:

    Suffice to say, the response on Tumblr was NOT pretty, and I don't blame them one bit.

    Although I love that Generations has N and Ghetsis going back and forth with one of the most powerful aspects of the entire 5th generation…. I have my slight irks. I’m sad that the canon now is N will have Reshiram and that the protagonist was Hilbert.
    The latest Generations episode is all wrong. First N has the wrong dragon, second… the story modification was great and would be perfect ingame but… WHERE THE HELL IS HILDA. YOU CAN STUCK THE MALE PROTAGS YOU KNOW WHERE NINTENDO, NO ONE NEEDS TO SEE THEM ALL THE TIME.

    And so they screwed it all up…
    Look I’m reaaaally happy N and the BW Protag have been reunited, but Pokémon Generations does know the female main characters exist also, right?
    If you prick me, I bleed Unova, and Hilda is my Number One Fave Protag, so even though the episode featured one of my favorite Pokémon characters in N and one of my favorite villains in Ghetsis, I couldn’t help but be a tad disappointed by the choice to use the male protag for the third time in a row.
    I’m battling between absolute joy and rage over the new Pokemon Generations episode.

    Like, there’s the joy over that familiar music, N just simply existing, the emphasis of how awful Ghetsis is, the evidence of how much N has grown, and N and the chosen hero finally meeting again.

    But why Touya. Why not Touko. Why must they all be male protagonists. What the heck are you thinking, creators, females play Pokemon, too, you know this, why have they all been male?!
    Ready for another generations rant? Where do I begin….

    Okay so Generations just proved it’s sexism in this episode. Why is it so against giving us female heroes? They could have split the remaining protags Gold and Red I get it the male was the only hero but then on? There’s no excuse especially here where the girl is always associated with the second version.

    Touya had Zekrom and N Reshiram and thus this means it was the plot of White the second version. WHICH IS 99% OF THE TIME ASSOCIATED WITH THE GIRL

    There’s a reason the manga puts the male name on the first game and the female name on the second, what do you have against saying girls can be the protagonist too Generations what is it?!

    And also BW only got one episode while BW2 the inferior got two episodes and I’m upset about that that but this refusal to show the heroine is really pissing me off
    Wanna' know why I didn't want to see any PCs besides Red? I knew ahead of time that this would happen, and I was proven 100% right.

    What makes it even sadder is that Generations was likely Hilda's last chance to appear in anything. The Gen 5 games are old news, and them getting remakes down the road isn't 100% now that VC releases are a thing. And, Unova doesn't exactly carry the nostalgia factor that Kanto does, so odds of it getting revisited in a non-remake context are very low.

    I'm not even the biggest Hilda or N x Hilda fan, but this is a pretty big Epic Fail on Generations' part. I feel terrible for those fans.

    Oh, just today my curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to Google Pokémon Christmas and ended up stumbling across an abandoned wiki for Skeetendo hacks completely by mistake. Long story short, the TCNS now has a page there. It'd be nice if the Skeetendo wiki was in as much use as the Skeetendo forum...

    Anyway, do you think I might want to add a push and pop to the stat raising code, judging from the copy of "engine/battle/core.asm" that came with the latest Alpha?

    Speaking of which... how did you incorporate Pokémon Riding?

    BTW, in regards to the infinite Harden thing, upon further investigation, on the seventh Harden the defense is apparently reset to -6. I'll have to hit a Metapod or Kakuna with Tail Whip or Leer just to be sure, but right now I'm assuming that's where the glitchy part of that kicks in.

    Right now InitEnemyTrainer calls GetTrainerAttributes, which reads the AI attributes based on trainer class, and then calls ReadTrainerParty, which reads per-trainer data. I refactored ReadTrainerParty so it's easy to add flags like TRAINERTYPE_ITEM for held items, TRAINERTYPE_NICKNAME for nicknames, TRAINERTYPE_DVS for per-Pokémon DVs, etc. Wouldn't be hard to add TRAINERTYPE_AI for non-default AI attributes.

    I don't yet need to individualize GetTrainerPic, but I'll keep the possibility in mind. If all the Leaders also shared important attributes like AI properties or DVs, then I would do it. But they all have different AI, and they have per-team DVs anyway instead of relying on their class defaults. So they only thing I'd save is storing one "Leader" string instead of eight.

    The map looks great! Red, blue, and purple is a good color scheme. The counter jutting out next to the info board looks odd. Is it to make the passage be one tile wide? Also, Christmas had the PC right next to the healing machine, so for consistency maybe keep it there. Something like this:

    Is the right counter for trading, or a mart? I may adopt this layout, since Polished Crystal's Battle Tower needs clerks who exchange prizes for BP.

    Oh. Well, anyway, I'm working on a Spanish translation of my hack in my spare time. I'm doing it in Latin American Spanish, not Castilian Spanish, so don't be surprised if you see me using second person plural formal pronouns, conjugations, etc. where the same, when lifted from the original Spanish translation (which will be mostly as far as I can see), was second person plural informal.

    I recognised the left as being the Pokémon Center side. Is the right still the Cable Club side, or is it being used for Move Tutors?

    That's the Gen II Pokémon League lobby, right?

    Well, at this rate I might be able to add Snore as early as tomorrow's release, when the nerfing of partial trapping moves such as Wrap and Bind should be complete as far as selecting moves is concerned (my next objective there should involve making escape attempts, such as Teleport usage and recalling, fail).

    As for making Snore and Sleep Talk fail if awake, shall I ask Crystal_ about it at the moment?

    Which commit would I look at, specifically?
