@Akio: ...Maybe I should call you Akio-dork~ ;D

But in all serious, I'm completely and utterly disillusioned with Japanese culture. It looks great until you consider the Yakuza /basically/ control the government, historically speaking they're just slightly more terrifying towards women than your average country, and they have the slightest track record for /racism/.

Also they accidentally an entire culture.

...There were totally several euphamisms in what I just said. @___@

But hey. Y'know what /is/ a great time to indulge in Japanese culture? When you're dealing with kanto, Johto, and people originating from them. Because they're totally based ou Japan n' stuff... This actually makes me wonder if Team Rocket was ever based on the Yakuza. Feels plausible. I'll do some research and get to you guys on that one. ;o

@PinkSapphire: Will do~

@Meganium90: We don't really choose our. own classes. I make a post in the OOC assigning them each day. That being said you can totally request a certain class and I'll consider it.

      @Meganium90: Too bad that you can't sign up for a class. In that case, I'd sign up my character Maxwell as fast as possible since he is a pretty big Bug-mainiac. He would pretty much fanboy-squeal at your teacher's Shelmet xD

      @PinkSapphire(or Nami): When you say Nami, I can only think of One Piece...

        It's team update time for Nika Valentine again. Feel free to skip over the massive post I made, but personally I (am biased) think it's decent. Gives some insight into who Nika is anyway.

        Paras gained +2 levels for fighting two wild Aipom, and evolved into Parasect. No new moves were learned. Team is as follows;


        Species: Joltik (Female)
        Nickname: Spider
        Personality: Spider is a quirky and highly curious individual, fascinated by the oddest of things and very happy to see new people, pokemon or places.
        Lvl: 25
        Moves: Spider Web, Thunder Wave, Screech, Fury Cutter, Electroweb, Bug Bite
        Ability: Compound Eyes

        Species: Larvesta (Female)
        Nickname: Eve
        Personality: A very caring and affectionate pokemon, Eve enjoys cuddling up to Nika, and even other pokemon and trainers.
        Lvl: 21
        Moves: Ember, String Shot, Leech Life, Take Down
        Ability: Flame Body


        Species: Shelmet (Male)
        Nickname: Sage
        Personality: Sage is a very grumpy pokemon, often clamping its shell/helmet closed when bothered by anything.
        Lvl: 22
        Moves: Leech Life, Acid, Bide, Curse, Struggle Bug, Mega Drain
        Ability: Shell Armour

        Species: Parasect (Female)
        Nickname: n/a
        Personality: Parasect is generally docile, or perhaps just lazy, preferring to settle down in a dark damp spot than engage in too much activity.
        Lvl: 24
        Moves: Leech Seed, Metal Claw, Psybeam, Stun Spore, Fury Cutter, Spore
        Ability: Dry Skin

        Species: Mystery Egg!
        Nickname: Egg
        Personality: It's an egg.
        Lvl: It's an egg!
        Moves: ...It's an egg.
        Ability: Egg egg

                @RHCP - Chris is heading to the Oak Town Pokemon Center. Maybe Xylo could meet him there... And somewhat bump him when exiting the Center... How's that sound?
                Ok! I'll make him bump into Chris maybe in the next post.

                So, today while I was doing random things (Such as relaxing after coming home from a con and playing TF2), something hit me. A question that seems like something that's completely obvious, but I've never heard it spoken, or generally talked about. So here is my question...

                Is there Pokémon Trading Cards within the Pokémon world? There's plushies, and it's only logical that corporations would merchandise the hell out of Pokémon, which it already has been in-game. (I've seen several NPCs with shelves stocked full of Pokémon goods).

                I was thinking that this could be brought up because there are kids who aren't able to get a Pokémon, or too young for it, and it'd be obvious that they would start to collect them. Could add something extra to the Academy, in case someone would want to start this up. Could be easier to talk to other people IC'ly as well, due to the whole "Wanna trade cards?" thing. Could even retcon it and make the cardgame a non-battle one and just a collection thing. What do you guys think?

                I've actually never thought of that xD Sounds plausible enough.

                    @WestsideConnection: Approved. Welcome back!~

                    @Sir Bastian: Eh... Cards... for battle? Is this Yugioh? I think they thoroughly exhausted taking children's card games that seriously. Regardless, no that doesn't feel in the spirit of pokemon. Pokemon has never been like that to my knowledge.

                    Besides, in the pokemon world, even if people did collect pokemon cards, they'd probably be exactly like baseball cards instead of the game we know here. Perhaps with interesting factoids on the card.

                    Yeah, that's exactly what I mean! I mean that instead of them being like we know them, they would be more collectibles, and not have anything to do with card battles. After all, you can watch the real deal on TV, or go to a battlefield somewhere and watch some trainers duke it out

                    I do mean the way that you're saying it, maybe I didn't make myself clear enough. But that just seems like a logical thing to be in the world. But more for the younger audience, those who can't catch Pokémon yet, but are still into it? Am I rambling here?

                      Actually, I would agree with the idea. I mean, the kids that are far too young to adventure with pokemon and dream of doing so would probably go out and try to "collect them all". The little information panels would teach them before they actually go out, and they would learn all of the species.

                      I do recall in the TV show (the original, I'm sure) that there were one or two trainers with 'Pokemon Cards'. Though they weren't for card battles, they were for collection and for information regarding the Pokemon.


                      Actually, I think PTA should have a "Trading Card Club" just for such an occasion!

                      Kiyoko, disguised as a small boy, might actually become obsessed with something like that, even though he can't read.

                      Did anyone else ever collect Pokemon Cards just for the pictures?

                            I collected Raichu cards in particular and had like... 15 different ones xD
