Precisely my point! Never again will I try to figure out how Pikachu learned an egg move by training, he just did! XD

Lots of things are different in the anime. Ever seen pokémon use hold items there? And the pokémon centers seem to take care of the pokémon for real instead of just stuffing them into a machine that blops for a few seconds.

Also, I made a thing :] Anyone read this before? http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=7691356#post7691356

I made something like that. I made a really simple ROM Hack called SolidSapphire that I just doubled every Trainer, Gym and Elite Four's Level as well as Wild encounters too.

I nuzlocked Emerald a while back but I sort of stopped midway due to a lot of other stuff. I want to play Emerald again but I'm afraid I won't have anymore time since uni's starting ;-;

I started playing Crystal just now. Wanted to make a nuzlocke but realized that I wanted specific pokémon so I dumped that idea quickly. Nostalgia is enough thrill for me now, it seems.

Currently my team is made up of ball-like pokémon: Poliwag, Geodude, Ghastly, Cyndaquil. I should get a Venonat and Oddish too, or something xD

Next round, I should try four legged pokémon alone, or something.

Or something. Lol.

I remember when my friend and I had Pokemon Silver and Gold respectively and we were trying to figure out why our mutual friend's game (Crystal) had different and moving sprites. We went so far as to assume we were holding our own Gameboy Color's wrong.

I remember one day I was playing Pokemon Platinum...

I was at the end of the game, up to battling Giratina, but little did I know that I didn't have the right supplies to finish the job. I was already in battle, so what did I do? RUN. I ran to go to the PokeMart to restock and replenish...

I come back to the Distortion World, and no Giratina. Saddest moment ever

(at least I later found out I could rebattle Giratina!)

@ Classic Sonic, aww, well good thing you could rebattle it later!

Funny how some TCG related threads popped up in Pokemon General now. We can still chitchat about the TCG in this thread, right? And anime, manga, games and anything else relating to pokémon. Because the thing with this thread is that we can just chat on seamlessly between the medias where pokémon appear... right?

I miss my pokémon TCG cards, I used to collect and even play with them when I was a kid. Still have a whole bunch stashed somewhere in my family's house :p

I could never bring myself to collect Pokémon TCG. The only time i played them is through the gameboy game that they have, which turned out to be quite fun... until I started losing a lot XD

I've sunk about 120 USD into Booster Pack codes for TCG Online.

    I used to play/collect the TCG a lot when it first came out. I still have all my old cards in my closet, organized out and safely tucked away. Except for my old "Gym Leader" deck, the one I used to use when I ran a TCG League a long while back. Still have my shirt for that too.

    Recently, I thought about getting back into the TCG again, especially since there's the online version. But since I need to buy the booster packs to get the codes to play online, its not really a good choice for me. I have no room for the cards, and have other trading card sets coming out to spend my money on. So unfortunately, I just kind of don't play the TCG anymore. I miss it.

    Though there is the GameBoy game. That was a really fun game. Should pick it up again. I never played through the whole story line.

    There are 'other' methods. Do you think I spent 120 bucks on booster packs to get booster codes from said packs? Heck no!

    I did play the TCG! When I was like 10 years old. Then the people who played kind of disappeared = grew up and I could only play with my siblings. So it wasn't too long before I gave up on that :<

    There's a gameboy game, hm? With an actual storyline? Might be worth trying if I can get my hands on it ^^

    I think me and my cousins were the only ones that actually knew the rules of the TCG, as anyone else I knew just collected the cards for the sake of having them. We still try and have battles every once and a while when we get together, but it must've been at least a year now since I busted my cards out (even though I've gotten into the habit of buying booster packs again...)

    And I remember one of my friends actually had that TCG game. It was actually quite well done, having I believe the first 3 or 4 sets of cards included. I didn't really find out about the story that much, but it played much similar to the way the TCGO does now, I presume. Might have to give it a try again at some point.

    fyi there are still GYM leaders in the game. I find it quite confusing but eh, it's a fun game :

    Completely unrelated to anything - I just noticed that Brendino's avatar caterpie has a yellow nose while the sprite in his signature has a green nose. Either, it's just a differently colored caterpie in the anime, or they changed its design a bit?

    Kind of like they did with Jynx ^^ It used to be black but they made it purple later.

    Haha, I never would've noticed that. It looks like it was just a mistake made by the folks working on the anime, as any time a Caterpie showed up prior to Hoenn, it had the wrong colored nose, and a light colored antenna. In it's most recent appearance in the anime, its nose was back to the right color, but its antenna was still a little bit lighter than its official art.

    There have been a few other coloring errors throughout the anime as well, especially early on (although, there was an instance in Hoenn where they messed up a couple of Pokemon at once), but I don't Caterpie had a deliberate color change like Jynx, it was just an honest mistake.

    I've seen a lot of minor color errors of Pokémon in the anime. It can't really be helped, I think.

    Brendino you have broken links ;; I wanted to see, haha.

    Also, I'd like to say hello with new mod glasses on. Doesn't mean I'm suddenly owning and deciding everything. What it means is that activities and improvements might finally take place!

    Please work together with me to make PG a lively place and throw suggestions my way if you think you have an idea for Pokémon General, Pokémon Manga/Comics or Pokémon Voting Polls!

    CONGRATS, BRUH! It's nice to know that I talked to you extensively here on the Daily C-C before you became a head-honcho. :3

    I SAW YOU EVOLVE!

    Totally, bro!

    Hey, give feedback on the splash banner I just made for PG. I can't make it more advanced than that without enlisting my pair for help :p But I also don't think it needs to be more fancy than that. Do you?

    O_O Don't know what happened, but they should be working now.

    And congratulations on being named back on to the staff! Too bad that means we'll be missing one more person from the supporter collab, though. Oh well, I'm sure it's a fair trade off, haha.

    I know we may not be talking about Pokemon right now but congrats on becoming a mod again, Rika! Can't wait to see what new improvements you make to the section, and nice pic of Sapphire on the forum splash as well!

    But yeah, congrats gurl and I do hope you last longer this time.

    This post is so funny now. Right back at ya, partner!

    We'll be creating a much needed rules thread for PG. So, dear regulars, is there something in particular you think should be in the rules? Something that you have noticed might be good to put there that may not be obvious at a first thought.
