    The circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

    Fixed it for you.

    Well I dunno about being shaped by my beliefs, but I DO know that Mewtwo Y has a head shaped like the dangly flesh poles that sit in between a mans legs. :argh

    What hangs at a man's thigh, and longs to poke at a hole it's poked before?

    I want more originals, but it'd be kind of bullshit if we didn't get more Megas, so we're kinda stuck. (I would have been happier if Megas didn't exist in the first place, but whaddya' gonna do.)

    I remember back when I was a kid, there where rumored mons like Doomsay and DOOMSday, lol, or the fabled Mewthree, WHICH the hoax sprite for LOOKED nearly identical to Mewtwo X. :psyduck Sort of found the sprites for the DOOM line. I couldn't find the original DOOMsay one, lol, it looked more like a freaky pod.







    DOOMSday looks like a ghost/bug though, lol, that would be a neat typing.


    @Stunna I feel like Z-moves was a way to try to make the huge roster more viable competitively without giving every poke and mon a mega. :catprotecc

    I can't speak to how successful they were at balancing things out by adding Z-Moves since I don't battle competitively, but even after these years have passed, I still can't help but find both them and Mega Evolutions to be gimmicky. I guess I'm an old man that way.

    The fact that they half-assed it is what makes it gimmicky to me: introduce megas for a handful of mostly-gens-one-and-three mons, give some multiple megas for no other reason than popularity, unbalance shit further by giving already powerful Pokemon mega forms and then... abandon it.

    I was watching a video featuring Mawile which is a great example of what megas should have been: attention and competitive options for otherwise lackluster Pokemon.

    There was no reason to go crazy with the stats. That's where they went wrong. Now they have to catch as much up as possible and make more new mons with stats that would have been able to give Mewtwo pink sock back in RBY

    Wait a minute, if Slobble turns into a Chinese Dragon looking thing, won't that make him Water/Dragon? If that is so, then the bunny could be a Fire/Pixie, then the secondary typing of the one you're super effective against will be weak against their secondary typing. Wait, nevermind, Dragon is only effective against dragon so no synergy with Grookey's final. :psyduck

    I should just delete this post. :catlewd I thought I was on too something, like that generation where the secondary typing for the starters was Dark > Fighting >Psychic, so they had this weird synergy of super effectiveness like Water > Grass > Fire. :catskip

    That trio being Greninja > Chesnaught > Delphox, with those exact typing combinations, lol. :catstand

    The correct answer is "A Key"

    BUT.

    It was the oldest recorded English joke.




    That just so happened to be a penis joke.

    >Megas
    >Alolan forms
    >Z-Moves

    All just an excuse to play on the Gen1 nostalgia disguised as balancing

    That's the outlier along with Raichu and Sandslash. Rest are very meh design-wise.

    Alolan Golem and Persian almost made me drop vidya.

    You're both right. Since Shiba guessed correctly first he gets to pick first.

    You can pick between one of 175x350 avatar or HTML user title. :skysun

    Megas weren't actually that bad when given to Gen 1 pokemon because some of them actually needed them.

    What broke the whole thing apart was giving a mega to the likes of Metagross, Salamance, etc.
