One of the earliest memories in my life I can recall is about Pokemon. I must’ve been about four or five in my family’s old green minivan driving along and up a dirt trail of a mountain of some sorts – I had my GameBoy with Pokemon Blue in the cartridge slot and all I can remember is picking Bulbasaur as my starter and watching it evolve into Ivysaur over and over and over again because I couldn’t figure out how to save the game.

Since then a lot has changed: I’ve figured out the save function of the Pokémon games, and several spin off and main games have added another six generations, 801 Pokémon total, to the mix. The world around me has changed but even with all the amazing additions, the leaps and bounds, the metamorphosis that the Pokémon franchise has undergone, I take solace in the fact that throwing a Pokéball and getting your opponents HP down to zero hasn’t. When so many things refuse to stay the same in life these small, precious memories become exponentially more dear to me.

Pokémon has taught me more than I ever could have imagined. Through the tough training of a Magikarp to evolve to a Gyrados I learned to never underestimate and count someone out; everyone has potential to do incredible things. Through having the option to either run away from a wild battle, or grind through it for experience points I learned that putting in the time and the hard work is the only way to become a champion in your field. Through the ever-growing world-wide connectivity of the games, and the inability to catch version exclusives and complete the Pokédex without trading with a friend, I’ve learned that you can never truly succeed by doing things all by yourself. Above all I’ve learned the value and power of teamwork, friendship and hard work to reach your goals and dreams.

Socially, Pokémon has connected me to hundreds, if not thousands of people throughout my life. In my younger years it helped me make my first few friends – using the link cable to battle and trade whenever I got the chance to have a play date. More recently, through the power of the Internet, Pokémon has allowed me to interact, befriend, trade and battle people on the other side of the world instantly! First hand, I’ve seen these creatures and the amazing world that they live in break the language barrier, close the age gap and forge unbreakable friendships with people that I would never have the opportunity to normally interact with. And that’s without all the amazing people I’ve got to meet as Pokémon GO as taken over the world.

I didn’t realize it then, but when I took those first steps into the tall grass outside of Pallet Town in Pokémon Blue almost twenty years ago I wasn’t starting a mere video game – Those first steps were the beginning to the adventure of a lifetime. An adventure that spans multiple regions, thousands of interactions with people around the globe and creates infinite precious memories. It’s been a journey like no other so far, and I hope it never ends.

Thank you Pokémon for the past twenty-one years. Thank you for staying by my side; no matter where life has led me, no matter how tall the grass got.

    There are FAR too many things to list, and I’ve only been into Pokemon for 3 years.

      Lmao, very impressive. Did you IV breed it or anything?

      • towelgirl21

        Ree is the granddaughter of my Omega Ruby “competitive” Dunsparce, so she has at least 4IVs, if not 5, with an Adamant nature. The only egg move she inherited was Headbutt. (The imgur gallery link shows much more of the story)

        As for beating Hala, I had to reload the save once. Then I used a Red Card to get rid of his Hariyama, I used Coil probably 4 times, and just hammered them with Return and Dig, with Rock Slide for the Crabominable. Since Ree’s affection was maxed, she dodged a lot of hits on her own, and healed her own status conditions. Also she was 20 levels higher than all of his pokemon, and I was spamming Full Restores.

        • Ultron

          Nice xD quite the accomplishment

  • MelloMori

    Looking back on it, my first big pokemon memory started in a hospital. I was seven and having a number of minor surgeries done on me, the main one being that I has having my tonsils removed. At that point it was well into the winter and I had played and restarted Pokemon red multiple times, mostly because I couldn’t figure out that I needed to give a drink to that one guard to get into Sabrina’s city(someone eventually showed me how). By that point I was around Blane’s gym, going through the old lab when a kid, a little older then me and sharing the room saw I was playing pokemon. He took out his own copy and he even had a link cable and asked me if he wanted to battle and trade. We had a quick battle, and I lost pretty badly, but we traded some pokemon, getting a machamp and a gengar(though my game glitched midtrade so my machamp was lost forever, but I didn’t care much). The day after the surgery I went home, went to a walmart, and had a ladder fall on my back. One quick settlement and some MRI’s to see the damage and a few month’s had passed. With the settlement money my parent’s let me get an N64 and the first game I bought for it was probably my favorite game for that thing; Pokemon Snap. A game that I have put countless hours into. But beside that, I think back to that old save file, long lost now. For some reason I never restarted it. I just kept going, though I didn’t have a reason to. I had someone’s pokemon that I’d never meet again on that file. My pokemon weren’t all that great, but I still wanted to see that game to the end… I did eventually, though I don’t know how. I think I mainly used Dugtrio, Zapdos and Blastoise through most of the game since I thought they were the best pokemon, but I did. I even ended up catching Mewtwo, and I never reset that file again. Honestly I think that might have been one of the first game’s I saw to its end on my own, and it was a bit of pride for a younger me. And I only grew from there, having a better team in yellow, beating Silver and grinding my way every day so I could fight red, losing some love for pokemon with Ruby, only to have that flame re-lit with Platinum. Bonding with friends in White, feeling part of something much bigger in X, and finding a great community here with Sun and moon.

    I still don’t know why I didn’t reset that game, or what made me want to finish it. But I’m glad I did. Pokemon has helped me make a lot of friends over the years, and still stands tall as our united banner. Happy 21st pokemon, and thank you to all who have made this a time worth treasuring.

    I’ve been watching the anime, reading the manga, and playing the cards since my earliest childhood memory.
    But my family couldn’t afford a personal Nintendo console until my 10th birthday. I got Pokémon Pearl that went along great with my limited edition Zelda DS.
    I played that game everyone I went; whether I went to the mall or had to go to business meeting with my dad, I always pitting my Chimchar against every opponent, even when it was mismatched.
    Today, I’ve learned not rely solely on my starter. Even then some habits die hard; nine times out of ten, I’ll pick a Fire type starter in honor of Chimchar, my very first starter.
    Some people like to pick at Diamond and Pearl’s flaws and go as far as to describe it as the worst gen ever.
    I’m alright with people thinking that; but you know what?
    Pearl will forever be filled with magical moments for me and even though it hasn’t aged well over the years, I wouldn’t change a thing.

    • Ultron

      People who think Gen 4 is the worst are idiots.
      -Physical/Special Split
      -Wireless communication
      -GTS
      -Bag can store virtually any amount of items
      -Touchscreen integration
      -Whole separate music based on time of day
      -Categorizing status moves
      -So basically redefining the entire mechanics of battling

      Do I even need to go on and talk about features like
      -the amazing music
      -walking with pokemon
      -pokeathlon
      -Great story in Platinum
      -underground (underrated honestly. Can’t wait till DP remakes revamp it)

      Each gen has introduced great new features, but Gen 4 changed SO MUCH for the better.

      • Awesome Waffles

        It’s just like with Gen 3; people that was the worst gen ever and then the remakes came out. Now Gen 3 has been vindicated.

        Maybe the same will happen to Gen 4.

  • Ultron

    I started pokemon at a really young age. For starters, Red and Green were trademarked on my exact date of birth, so I like to think I was literally born to be a fan. I watched my sister play Red for a long time and loved watching the anime after school. I was obsessed with water types and loved Misty in the show cause she had Starmie, who I thought was amazing and symmetrical, and Togepi, who was just adorable. My sister and I collected the trading cards and I’ll never forget the day I got a foiled Zapdos out of a pack at Meijer. She was super jelly 😉

  • The singular Kuppo™

    Time to boot the time machine I guess.

    My first experiences with Pokemon was as fast as 2007 (when I was 7/8) Pokemon was extremely popular at that time and every kid was talking about it. My first inclusion in the franchise was from the anime, I loved it and watched many episodes from it, they aired episodes from the first season to the DP ( I always got confused with the timeline because I usually missed key episodes :v). I had an obsession with the gen 4 starters,I couldn’t decide which one of the three i like the most and they were my first mons that I considered my favorites one, another favourites that I had were shinx (I found it so cute) and Gliscor, Wich I still love to this day, regarding the movies, I only watched the Lucario movie, the Shaymin one and the Arceus one, even though the channels loved to air episodes from Kanto and Johto, they never aired the Mewtwo and Lugia movies but I don’t mind because I don’t think they’re that good, are they?? Are they??????

    “Fun” fact: While my experience with the games dates years later, my first experience with a game with Pokemons was a cheap handheld bootleg with terrible controls. I loved/hated it so much

    Fast forward the years later until 2015, I have forgotten about Pokemon, the only anime I got to watch were the Xand Y season, I completely missed black and white seasons (thank God) but I got interested in the main Pokemons games because: they get high scores in reviews sites, I wanted to know how they were like since I was a child and at the time I was obsessed with RPG’s so I decided to pick a game: Pokemon White (why I picked it instead of of Platinum is a mystery, I wasn’t familiar with gen 5 Pokemons at all and Sinnoh was an important part of my childhood) I loved it’s addictive gameplay and characters and music so I decided to play more games like Platinum, Soul Silver, Emerald, Omega Ruby ( I wanted Alpha sapphire instead ;-;), Explorers of Sky(my favorite in the saga) and possibly one or two more That I can’t remember right now.

    But anyways, I’m glad that I decided to play the main Pokemons games, I had so many interesting adventures in those games, more cool VGMs to listen, meeting you guys :3 , and it quickly became one of the four videogames franchises that I absolutely love (the others being Super smash Bros, Final fantasy and Kirby)

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Christ, this text is longer than I expected ._.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Uuuuggghhhhh insomnia and anxiety do not mix, I keep reading how tons of people are getting Failed Authorization for their Best Buy Switch preorders but they claim only because they don’t actually charge until it ships so that makes me feel slightly better but I’m also reading that some got their to update from preorder to preparing which mine does not say, I’m gonna give it til Wednesday to Thursday to see if they update it otherwise I’ll go into full panic mode and politely make them hold a copy for me

    • Super Govnahman R

      they gonna tell you first come first serve honestly, if your order does in fact doesnt go through

      • EarthenWarrior

        :C

        • Super Govnahman R

          its not their responsibility to give you one, if your order doesn’t go through and gets cancelled, i still think you should call customer service.

          • EarthenWarrior

            IT’S NOT FAIR! I TRY TO DO EVERYTHING RIGHT AND STILL BE POTENTIALLY SCREWED

            and besides it IS there responsibility to honor what i reserve, then what’s truly the freaking point, i reserved it the very night it went live and that kinda preparation deserves to be rewarded,

          • Super Govnahman R

            but if its cancelled they can’t just say “Oh Earthen even tho its cancelled we still have to give you one” Like i said call Best Buy and ask them about your order they see more then we do

          • EarthenWarrior

            (thankfully its not) but still its just utterly unfair that a potential glitch on their end causes me so much pain and suffering and i am not met with justice

            Point is if my Pre-order doesn’t say preparing by tomorrow or Thursday i will go to best buy in person and ask to be helped, they can’t refuse customer service with any or all their questions

            Hell i’m psychotic enough to wait out the entire damn night on their steps if that means i get a Switch HELL I’LL JUST BUY ONE AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL I GET ONE SO I CAN FINALLY HAVE ONE AND FREAKING RELAX AND PUT MY ALL CONSUMING FEARS TO REST

    • Super Govnahman R

      and like i always tell people, if you place a order for a big item when it know its gonna sell out and be hard to find day 1 order a back up on another website

      • EarthenWarrior

        pre·or·der
        prēˈôrdər/
        verb
        gerund or present participle: pre-ordering
        order (an item of merchandise) before it is available, with the understanding that it will be shipped later.

        Ergo you are entitled to one,

        • Super Govnahman R

          if it gets cancelled your not entitled to one then

          • EarthenWarrior

            but that just isn’t fair especially if it was Unauthorized,
            i have a pre-order and a order number i will voice my case and demand that i am helped

          • Super Govnahman R

            I told u to call best buy….

          • EarthenWarrior

            I DID AND THEY SAID THEY HAVE IT, THEY STILL SAY FAILED AUTHORIZATION ONLY BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T CHARGE ME AT THE TIME

            I’M JUST SO CONSUMED WITH DEMENTIA AND FEAR I BELIEVE EVERYTHING IS GOING O GO WRONG BECAUSE THINGS ALWAYS DO FOR ME

          • Super Govnahman R

            Youll be fine

    • Emotionless Protagonithsme

      If it makes you feel any better mine (last night) didn’t say preparing either. :/

      • EarthenWarrior

        like i said, giving it til tomorrow and Thursday, if nothing i will go down, show them my order number and tell them to hold a copy because i freaking have the pre-order

        i don’t want to sound like a whiny bitch but this has been an ordeal since day one, and each and every day i feel nothing but fear and stress that what i ordered won’t be honored

  • UnburdenedLegume

    This week’s anime episode will feature a new trailer for the upcoming movie

    • The Subzero Kurusu

      Yeeeeeeeeeees!

  • Super Govnahman R

    Wow i already explained my story in the last article 🙁

    • The singular Kuppo™

      You could copy and paste it here 😉

  • Emotionless Protagonithsme

    My favorite Pokemon memory: tearing my hair out hatching 2500 turtwig eggs to get a shiny.

    Might as well just feature me now, there’s no contest.

    • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

      I got the shiny Pikipek
      I just beat it

      • Emotionless Protagonithsme

        Wow cool

        I got one months ago

        • Super Govnahman R

          wow cool i got one through random encounter

        • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

          I mean I got the one I took from day one to get

    • Super Govnahman R

      I just topped you

    • The singular Kuppo™

      But the important question is: did you became bald afterwards? did you got the shiny?

      • Emotionless Protagonithsme

        Oh, yep. I still have three boxes of eggs though, who knows, those could all be shiny.

  • Super Govnahman R

    My First Starter name was BBBBB

    • EarthenWarrior

      Btw i’ve been meaning to ask, have you always been a Bomberman fan or just a poser?

      • Super Govnahman R

        I played bomberman since the 64

        • EarthenWarrior

          very good my history goes
          Bomberman GB
          64 (the fucking best)
          The Second Attack (i used to bother my Blockbuster every week to get that game in)
          Bomberman Hero (really good OST)
          Bomberman Generations
          Jetters…..(weakest game in the series)
          Bomberman Land (me and my Brother fought over it)

          • Super Govnahman R

            so are you gonna get Super bomberman R?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m getting it purely out of the idea of Multiplayer games, i’m absolutly deranged and money is no object right now

            But i kinda wanna play Bomberman Generations purely so i can create a in depth list of Charaboms (As i said multiple times i am enamored by games that utilized characters/Creatures with elemental powers)

        hmmm that reminds me, if enemies are getting a reskin i wonder what Dodongos will look like
        And a further question: i wonder if Dogongos can be domesticated by Gorons

  • Super Govnahman R
    • The singular Kuppo™

      At first I thought this was somehow a TV.

      Now I want a Zelda TV

        • EarthenWarrior

          My Savant Encyclopedic bran knows nearly every cartoon
          My favorites where the trio of fat ladies

          • Super Govnahman R

            I still think south park the fractured but whole should come to the switch

          • Oh my god,yes.

          • Super Govnahman R

            i mean its drawn the style of the cartoon so no downgrades would need to happen!

          • This probably won’t happen,but I really want a JoJo game to come to the Switch.

          • Super Govnahman R

            I want alot of games to come to the switch

          • That kinda goes without saying,but maybe you could list a few.

          • Super Govnahman R

            honestly its just bunch of ports of games I would love to play on the go!

          • Ok

          • Super Govnahman R

            but heres a few
            Ghost Recon
            For Honor
            South Park
            Overwatch
            Tekken 7

          • It would be really cool if Overwatch got a Switch port.Here are some of mine:
            JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:Eyes Of Heaven
            J-Stars Victory Vs +(It came out a few years ago,but it’s still a fun game)
            God Eater (I recently got into it and I really like it)
            Dragon Ball Fusions

          • Super Govnahman R

            Xenoverse 2 on the switch made me want to get it again

          • I really like it (I have it on PS4).DLC Pack 2 comes out today,and I have high hopes for the next on (Not that I’m complaining,but it’s a little weird that Bojack was seen in the data for the upcoming DLC Pack/Packs with Zamasu and SSJ Rose Goku Black.)

          • Super Govnahman R

            Oh i have it for ps4 too! i just dont have time to play it, i Just got horizon zero dawn last night and i love it

          • I’ve been busy playing God Eater 2 Rage Burst,but I still try to play Xenoverse every so often.

          • EarthenWarrior

            nah Nintendo can’t let something that crass be on the switch this early

          • Super Govnahman R

            It got delayed so it could happen 🙂

    • Daedardus
      • Super Govnahman R

        oh btw my order went through 😉

        • Daedardus

          Your ME from Amazon? Great to hear!

          • Super Govnahman R

            No it was never from Amazon, it was from gamestop! it was just I made a huge mistake on my order involving my cardholder name but it still went through, I ALSO GOT A MEWTWO CUP

          • Daedardus

            Still great! Since I’m a low peasant European, I could never get hold of a ME sadly. Really wanted that map and case.

          • Super Govnahman R

            But do you have this awesome cup lol I ordered out of my OCD doing the same info i did my ME

            Sadly I don’t. Looks really great though. Is it plastic or metal?

          • Super Govnahman R

    I love the fact that it’s letting us use Kanto mons in the next competition with Alolan Mons despite the fact that like every single Kanto mon that’s half decent is already usable. (Outside of like DUGTRIO and Zapdos)

          oh yes if you’d trade me one I would love that, what would you like in return? *also sorry I’ve been a little busy the past few days*

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Do you have any apricorn Miniors?

          • Sweet Fae

            let me check

          • Sweet Fae

            I have the reddish pink one in a love ball

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Any others? If not then an EV reducing berry other than Tamato would do.

          • Sweet Fae

            no thats the only one I have in an apricorn ball, I don’t know what you mean by EV reducing berries??? but I have like 1000’s of berries

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Like Kelpsy, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa and Pomeg

          • Sweet Fae

            I’m pretty sure I have all of those

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK IGN: James
            FC: 0748 – 2744 – 4660

          • Sweet Fae

            IGN: Aluna
            FC: 2492-4342-8850

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Ready and in plaza.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Thank you, enjoy the Solosis 🙂

          • Sweet Fae

            thank you, you’re da breast

      • Ultron

        Yeah, that’s why I said the “I’m assuming” part. Not sure I can trust them. I’d say you’re gonna need to get the 3BP as well to get both rewards :/

        • Sweet Fae

          Im at 5 rn, maybe Ill shoot for 10 just to be safe lol

          • Ultron

            I’m looking at the rules right now, and it appears to get the heavy ball you do need to get at least 3 BP.

  • Super Govnahman R

    Cnet made a video just clicking buttons of the switch lol

  • TCRowlet

    When are we able to get the Mawilite/Beedrillite if we competed in the last tournament?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably not for a week.

      • TCRowlet

        Thank you!

  • EarthenWarrior

    Brain not working correctly… Body needs Nintendo Switch… All I see is crowds, disappointed and fear… People getting it and me being left in the dust… Need confirmation that everything will be alright…

  • EarthenWarrior
    • TCRowlet

      I can’t wait to play this game on the Switch <3

    • When is this coming out?

      • EarthenWarrior

        April 11th

        • !!!! Oh! I can get it on my birthday then! How much is it?

          • The singular Kuppo™

            40$

          • Ok cool I can probably get it! I might wait until I beat BOTW tho

          • EarthenWarrior

            I highly recommend this especially if you never experienced the majesty that is Banjo Kazooie

          • I played up to the ice level in Banjo then got stuck on it. Those dang snowmen are impossible to kill. I want to revisit it though maybe after Twilight Princess

          • EarthenWarrior

            Eyahawhawh!!!! *pshhhheeeeeeep*

          • Ok but really how do you kill them

          • EarthenWarrior

            You gotta Dive Bomb them from the air, hence why they got the red X on their hats

          • Ohhhhh. But flying is so klunky at least with an Xbox controller. I guess I’ll have to just I I’ll them before getting any other collectibles

          • EarthenWarrior

            You gotta play Banjo Tooie too it’s the extremely better half

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I received 500 FC earlier for participating in global missions but my record was 0 with all of them, is it a glitch?

  • When the Mawilite is given out if someone can get me one I would
    very much appreciate it

  • Super Govnahman R

    Remember the Nintendo Nindies showcase starts in 12 minutes

  • EarthenWarrior

    https://youtu.be/gLRUce0a9CA
    HOLY FRACK THE ICE KEY

    • lol omg I love it

    • But really this game looks like it was made by a AAA company. It’s amazing how far indie games have come

      • EarthenWarrior

        They get more and more original rare developers by the month

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Poliwrath would be so much better if they give it access to decent physical moves because it has such a good typing in terms of defense.

    • Ultron

      Wow, they didn’t even give it liquidation

  • Super Govnahman R

    YOOKA LAYLEE SWITCH TRAILER HYPE!!!! Coming out very soon

    • 😮
      Is it coming after the other systems?

      • Super Govnahman R

        yea probably or maybe not who knows they ddint say. also escapist 2 announced for switch

        • Super Govnahman R

          OMG RUNNER 3!

          • Like bit.trip runner?

          • Super Govnahman R

            yea and a new blaster master whatttttr

        • Hoping for a Cave Story port with the Cave Story+ bonus modes and ability to switch between old and new graphics/music

        • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

          ESCAPISSSSTTT 2!!!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I knew they were gonna do that
      Still got an erection out of that thou

      • Super Govnahman R

        yea but its coming out sooner then we think

        • EarthenWarrior

          Now if I can JUST FREAKING GET THE SWITCH I CAN PLAY IT FOR N THE GO

          Seriously I am just so concerned I’ll never get one unless my preorder goes through

          • If your preorder doesn’t go through you will still get one eventually

  • Omg there will probably be a Stardew Valley Switch trailer 😍

    • Super Govnahman R

      wow they just showed right when u said it

      • WAIT REALLY

        • Super Govnahman R

          yea switch will be the first console with multiplayer mode

  • THE SWITCH ALREADY HAS TWO OF MY FAVORITE GAMES YEAS

    • The singular Kuppo™

      It only needs mother 3 now 😉

      • Omg if they announce Mother 3 or even just Earthbound this is already my favorite console

  • MelloMori

    Whelp this is the best indie of the year IMO. Great to see Advance Wars living on as an Indie, as it should be.

  • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

    Escapist 2 makes me happy :3

    • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

      Also enter the gungeon

      • Ooooo I’ve been wanting to play that

  • Super Govnahman R

    Now we need a proper Nintendo Direct

    • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

      And a Pokken port

      • Definitely,and (of course) with the characters that weren’t in the Wii U version.

        • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

          Yesss

      • The singular Kuppo™

        YES, bring those DLCs to console players please

      • Super Govnahman R
        • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

          That should be a picture or Empoleon

          • The singular Kuppo™

            *Chandelure

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Yeah, I want more games announced, I’m thirsty for more

  • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

    If Nintendo loves us, Air Ride 2 will be made

    • Super Govnahman R

      or at least put kirby in mario kart

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        That ain’t enough
        Air ride was literally the perfect game

        • Sweet Fae

          truer words have never been spoken, but I would also like to see kirby in mario kart

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Just make it Smash Kart and give everyone a go.

    • The singular Kuppo™

      YES, that game’s soundtrack is amazing

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        😀

    • That reminds me,I would love to see a Billy Hatcher 2 (Though it probably won’t happen).Also,I loved Air Ride.

    • Sweet Fae

      YASSSSS

    • Ultron

      Or just give us a 3D Kirby game akin to Mario 3D land

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I GOT A HA STARLY VIA WT I AM SO HAPPY RN

    • Ultron

      Stop being so reckless..

      • UnburdenedLegume

        And now a 3IV Wishiwashi lol

        • Ultron

          I might try to get a beast ball wishiwashi. I feel like that fits it well.

          • *The Impatient Matenou*

            wait does looker give you beast balls even when you caught all of the wandering ultra beasts?

          • The singular Kuppo™

            Yep

          • *The Impatient Matenou*

            i just wanted to know if he does so i could get an infinite number of them if i give it to my pokemon.

          • Ultron

            Yes, but only one. So you’ll have to take it out of your bag

          • UnburdenedLegume

            The one i got is in a dive ball

          • Ultron

            That’s what my current one is in. Fits well too.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I want a dive ball Salamence so thats my next objective

          • Ultron

            I feel like Lure would be better tho

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Agreed but i dont have a lure anymore sadly

          • Ultron

            Aw that’s a bummer. I’m sure one is coming soon with the way the global missions are going.

      • The singular Kuppo™

        I’m not very keen to these puns, so I better keep an eye

        • Ultron

          …eye see what you did there

  • EarthenWarrior

    Nrrrrghhhhhhhh two hours left in my shift….
    I need to go home, walk my dogs, gas up my car, finish my laundry and wait for my preorder to say Preparing

  • The PinSir

    Since its Pokemon’s 21 anniversary, what is a very fond memory/moment you had playing Pokémon?

    • Finishing off Red with Ootachi the demon Furret

    • Ultron

      -Completing the national dex in Alpha Sapphire for the first time 😀
      -Catching Articuno when I was young and then my sister took it and named it “Lil Bitch”
      -Coming across a shiny tangela in the safari zone and catching it!
      -Soft reseting for 4 weeks for that beautiful shiny Cresselia

      I could go on

      • The PinSir

        That’s hilarious with the Articuno thing XD

        • Ultron

          I was angry

          • The PinSir

            It does suck though at the same time

    • The singular Kuppo™

      My whole playthrough of Explorers of Sky <3

      • The PinSir

        Explorers of Sky was awesome, I remember my first play through was with me as a Pikachu and my partner was a Riolu (which strangely enough was the same Pokémon as in the trailer for EOS)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I have many. Playing Blue with my brother for the first time and choosing Bulbasaur as our starter. Catching shiny Sandslash in the Safari Zone even though I thought it was gonna run and I had 3 balls left. Hatching my first perfect shiny, a Froakie. Catching Shiny Lugia in Soul Silver. Beating Team Rocket for the first time and feeling like we’d made a difference 😛 And many more.

  • I already have a bigger line up for any system I’ve gotten

    Zelda
    Cave Story
    Stardew Valley
    Snipperclips
    Yooka Laylee
    Binding of Issac*
    Enter the Gungeon*

    *mehby

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Here’s mine

      Zelda
      Octopath
      Xenoblade Chronicles 2
      FE 2018

      Not as big but is something at least ¶=

      • I’m also getting Splatwo down the line and Mario Odyssey

        • The singular Kuppo™

          If I can I may also get Mario Odyssey even though I’m terrible at Mario games

  • Guys the Switch has so many good games omg

  • UnburdenedLegume

    GDGSHJGSJHDGASJHGDSJHDGSJHGDSJHDJH SOO MUCH HYPE, 1 MORE MONTH AND ITS MINEEEEEE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9rwdaI8rCo

  • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

    Today summed up in four sentences
    -Banana snake-chan! Noooooo!
    -I have been humiliated in front of my peers, darn
    -I’M DOING RESEARCH
    –This is a quiver dance off m8

    • Wat

    • The singular Kuppo™

      – ???
      – really? That sucks ;(
      – ok
      -…..(ok)

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        Picture the third thing yelled and the second said in an anime style edgelord voice

    • I need more dance offs in my daily life. I also can’t dance

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        I do too

    • TheNintendoChip

      What kind of research?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Bored….need Switch now, need to explore Hyrule and need to fondle the Joycons

    Maybe invent a helmet that can hold the Switch screen to face

    • Super Govnahman R

      don’t fondle with the joycons

      • The singular Kuppo™

        Why not? ツ

        • Super Govnahman R

          because thats what the milking game is for

          • The singular Kuppo™

            Makes sense :v

  • Ok I am very confident that the Switch will do very well with all of the indie, third party and amazing Nintendo games on the thing. Plus the fact that it’s portable! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I NEED IT

  • UnburdenedLegume

    The new global mission started today and the goal of 250,000 BP has already been reached, in fact the current count is over 510,000. Unreal stuff, GIMME THOSE RARE CANDIES AND HEAVY BALL

    • Ultron

      Better make sure you get at least 3 BP

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I did 10 battles right after registration so i’m covered

        • Ultron

          Nice. I’m gonna do a challenge when I get home later tonight 🙂

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I don’t even have battle tree ;~;

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Why not?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Not finished the game, still trying to breed my Shiny Salandit orz

  • Super Govnahman R
    • Super Govnahman R

      also if my farfetch’d Timeline placement is true I swear i will go crazy (even tho im wrong)

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        Where is it? (I may or may not somewhat know the answer)

        • Super Govnahman R

          DONT TELL ME.
          but i keep saying its a new timeline where the hero never woke up from the 7 year slumber

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            I’m not gonna
            I know the answer, but I won’t say.
            (Inb4 you find a reddit page, just avoid reddit)

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Is this official art? 😮

      • Super Govnahman R

        yep

        • EarthenWarrior

          in each other’s head
          Young Link: Why the hell is he wearing blue?
          BOTW Link: Eww green is so last gen

          • Super Govnahman R

            In there heads
            Young Link: BREAK POTS
            BOTW link: BURN THE FOREST

          • The singular Kuppo™

            Link, link never changes

          • EarthenWarrior

            Heh reminds me of this little thing
            in every incarnation of Link i like to give a personality flaw
            In OoT he’s completely dumb and oblivious
            MM he’s constantly getting his skinny white butt thrashed
            WW he’s yet again stupid and more dumb
            TP a Sarcastic know it all dick to everyone
            SS wild psycho ramming things head first
            and i guess BOTW a unchecked arsonist

          • Ultron

            How is getting your ass kicked a personality flaw

          • EarthenWarrior

            i dunno i mean MM Link is always getting the raw deal

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            I would think BOTW as being the kind of person to accidentally slaughter themselves

        • The singular Kuppo™

          I don’t know anything about Zelda’s timeline, but does that picture hints at the placement of BoTW in the timeline?

          • Super Govnahman R

            no not at all i just had to mention my theory again 😛

          • UnburdenedLegume

            The game is set after OOT…

          • Super Govnahman R

            Well i didnt want to know till the game came out so thanks 🙂 now my dreams are crushed

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Looool sorry i thought it was common knowledge by know because Aonuma said it in an interview

          • Super Govnahman R

            if link never wakes up in OOT and the game is 100 years later isnt that technically still after OOT or no

          • UnburdenedLegume

            My timeline knowledge is a bit rusty because i havent played any zelda games in like 2 or 3 years. Aonuma said it comes after OOT but he didnt say which timeline though, he did say there’s a hint in one of the trailers

          • Super Govnahman R

            ah ok, my theory was farfetch’d anyway saying a new timeline where the hero never woke up. I just wish it was true LOL

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Ehh i’ve heard theories it comes between TP and WW because of the Koroks, Rito and the ruined Castle Town

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            Hmmmm

      • Ultron

        Looks to be the manual in the game case? Maybe?

        • Super Govnahman R

          the case is confirmed not to come with a manual

          • Ultron

            Hm, then idk. Maybe just a gameinformer magazine or something

          • Super Govnahman R

            or for a guide

          • Ultron

            That too

    • EarthenWarrior

      EARTHEN NEED NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      but a thought arose in my fat noggin, i know my local Toys R Us is pretty low key, maybe just maybe if they open earlier than Best Buy and they have one i can use that as a failsafe

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Loool i was about to delete my Pokemon X save file but i always check the PC if there are any legendaries or high leveled mons i find useful left and i bump into a shiny Gengar

    • UnburdenedLegume

      And a shiny Trevenant, unrealll

  • *The Impatient Matenou*

    yeah um it seems that kurusu hasn’t appeared.

    • He’s probably at school still

      • *The Impatient Matenou*

        ok okay they did say yesterday that they’re going to be late and wait til 8:00 or something like that.

    • The singular Kuppo™

      I think that what earthen said was true….

      JK, I remember him saying that he had a lot of work to do in this week, so maybe he’s just busy

      • *The Impatient Matenou*

        okay i get it i can wait until the weekend to talk to him.

  • AuroraLights493

    SO. Here is me, being curious:
    Do you think GF will ever release Gen 2 for the VC?
    I know that Gen 1 was released particularly for the 20th Anniversary, and that’s great! But from a business standpoint, it just makes sense to release Gen 2 as well. Gen 1 made a metric crap ton of money in the eShop, becoming some of the best selling games of 2016.
    So, why would they NOT release them? The games could easily be compatible with their Gen 1 counterparts, and could use the same transport method to Gen 7 or higher.

    OR: do you think that they may wait, and put them on the Switch? Perhaps they will be compatible with a third Sun and Moon/DPPt remake/Gen 8?

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      I think if we do get gen 2 it’ll either be on the Switch or something we don’t know about yet. GF has stated they are open to doing gen 2 VC, but not right now. I can’t see them putting it out for the 3DS after they make their way to the Switch. There would be no reason to as their core market would have moved on as well.

      • AuroraLights493

        Very fair point! At this point, regardless of the system, I would be tickled pink to have them at all!!! My guess is it will likely be the Switch, and it would work well, considering it’s a single screen. It would be like having a much bigger, nicer GameBoy Color. xD

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          I just hope they scale it right. the Switch screen (plus the TV of course) is much bigger than the 3DS screen and certainly bigger than the GBC’s screen. It might not look right blown up lol

          • AuroraLights493

            Oh…true. >.<
            Well, they're smart programmers, I'm sure they could maybe come up with something to sharpen the image. If not, then we may just be blurry and pixelated. xD
            I wonder then what the three remaining code slots are pertaining to symbols that are in Sun and Moon's coding? They had slots for Gen 1, Gen 6, and seemingly for GO. But there are 3 unused slots…GSC?

          • They could add in filters like on those emulators. I love the one that blends the pixels to make it look like it was drawn

  • I just want them to announce DP remakes on the Switch soon

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I’m sure, but if they do DP remakes they better damn well make it worth it. DP were imo not the greatest. I’ve given my reasons before, but they’ll need to improve it in order to really suck me in. I’m open to trying it again and will likely buy it no matter what, but I can’t see myself enjoying it if it’s the same god awful trudge through the region it was the first time…..lol

      • Platinum really fixed all the issues with D/P. They would definitely base it off of that (better dex, better flow, better story, improved region)

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          I never played Platinum as by that point I was so turned off of DP I couldn’t justify playing through Sinnoh again. It’s a shame too as over all I really like gen 4. The Pokemon are awesome, the region’s overall design is pretty cool, and the characters (well some of them anyway lol) are amazing. The pacing of DP and the way you basically have to push through MT Coronet every time you need to go to the other side of the region made it unbearable for me. Maybe I’d have different opinion now after so long, but that’s how I remember it. I have a feeling my memories are right tho as I’ve never had this problem with any of the other Pokemon games. It must have really done something to me hahaha

    • The singular Kuppo™

      I don’t want a DP remakes

      I want a Platinum remake.

      • It would just be Platinum split in two

        • The singular Kuppo™

          Well I mean in the ORAS remakes they didn’t introduce important things that Emerald introduced so assuming that if we got a DP remakes, they wouldn’t include anything that Platinum introduced making me mad

          b u t h e y. T h a t s. J u s t. A. T h e o r y

            Which is why I am being cautious about the idea hahaha

  • Gamer Dragon07

    Man 21 years now,I loved pokemon since the beginning.Playing from Pokemon Red to Pokemon Moon is quite the adventure.I have lots of memories.I thinking I’ll show them through my art,this will be the first I showcase my art through here.Guess I’ll start with first gen:
    ( apparently I cannot uploaded my images for some reason so I’ll have to resort to sending a link to my Deviant Art… )

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      What the hell happened to that Blastoise?!?!? Many tough battles? lol

      • Gamer Dragon07

        Yup,he’s an old turtle now.He had many tough battles.That blastoise is the first pokemon I trained to level 100

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          From what game?

          • Gamer Dragon07

            My Red version,the first pokemon game I played

          • TheWinterMonster6893

            Ah wow that’s great. That’s actually quite the feat. The original games were a grind to get to that point. At least if you weren’t using the rare candy glitch lol

          • Gamer Dragon07

            Yeah I didn’t even use the rare candy glitch,I didn’t even know about it at the time

    • *The Impatient Matenou*

      yeah and i’ve been playing pokemon for 10 years starting with diamond, pearl , and platinum (before i lost both diamond and pearl)

      • Gamer Dragon07

        That’s a bummer,I did lose my Silver version when I went to visit relatives in Hawaii.I got it back some years later but the save file was already gone due to the internal battery being dead

        • *The Impatient Matenou*

          yeah but i actually lost my pearl pink ds lite aswell as the diamond and pearl while moving houses.

          • Gamer Dragon07

            Ouch,that really sucks

    • ooooohhh I wanna do this. Im goona draw my teams from each generation 😀

      • Gamer Dragon07

        Oh neat c:

  • omg im so hyped

    my favorite knight 😀

    • Super Govnahman R

      and the death battle tmmr 🙂

      • EarthenWarrior

        Alright we gotta analyze our competitor’s abilities
        Scrooge Mcduck may be elderly but his tenacity, intelligence, determination is beyond comprehension
        armed with cannons and canes he can perform his signature cane bounce with
        other than that he really doesn’t have outstanding feats of combat unless he uses his greatest asset money

        Shovel knight is heroic and resourceful, armed with his Shovel blade and a plethora of Relics with multiple uses, not only that he has not only defeated an entire boss rush of the Order of No Quarter and the enchantress of evil,

        Honestly Shovel Knight has the clear advantage due to his longer history of fighting and a much much more versatile arsenal

        • Super Govnahman R

          Scrooge Mcduck has alot more then u just said

          • EarthenWarrior

            well sorry if i don’t have everything in memory
            i know next to nothing about the ducktales series

          • Super Govnahman R

            its a good series you should give it a watch

          • EarthenWarrior

            the only thing i’ve ever seen is the tasty paste episode

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Never played Shovel Knight in it’s earlier iterations so I’m looking forward to picking it up for the Switch.

    • EarthenWarrior

      i’m torn between Mole Knight and Polar Knight

    • The singular Kuppo™
  • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

    To those of you thinking of it, BOTW has frame issues on the WII U…..

  • “It’s November 2012, the Wii U has just launched and I am at the store trying to get one. As it turned out, no one else was really there for one, which was a little bit of a warning sign”

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Funeral March – Chopin at the beginning of the video <3 <3 <3

  • *The Impatient Matenou*

    someone in the next classroom over just imitated arnold schwarzenegger.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Where can i find background themes in the E-store?

    • *The Impatient Matenou*

      oh go to the menu screen look at the top left corner for a house icon and you can see new themes button.

  • Ultron

    A pineco just hatched from my 10 km egg. What the absolute fuck is this bullshit

    • TheNintendoChip

      How rare is Pineco? I haven’t seen one yet around here soo

      • Super Govnahman R

        its rare

        • The singular Kuppo™

          Really?
          Why?
          How?
          What?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Its definitely one of the more rare Bug types found in GO. I constantly run into the Caterpie and Weedle line, as well as Spinarak but haven’t seen a Pineco once

          • The singular Kuppo™

            I didn’t know it was a bug type….

          • UnburdenedLegume
      • Ultron

        But like, why is it is so rare. Ughhhh why couldn’t it be snorlax or lapras or larvitar

        • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

          Apparently Mareep is rarer than larvitar

          • Super Govnahman R

            it really is

          • Ultron

            Explains why I haven’t seen a mareep. I thought that was odd

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            Gen 1: Lapras, Snorlax, Porygon, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Chansey, Aerodactyl
            Gen 2: Miltank, Girafarig, Stantler, Mareep, Togetic, Hitmontop, Unown

            All the rarest

          • Ultron

            Can you find the baby pokemon in the wild?

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            Nope

          • Ultron

            Ughhh dumb

          • TheNintendoChip

            Just wondering, where’s this information from?

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            I can’t quite remember

          • TheNintendoChip

            Hmm ok. I’ve tried looking up rarity charts and whatnot but they’ve all been wrong somewhere so I’m distrustful. But I haven’t seen any of the ones you’ve mentioned soo

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            Hmmm
            Well, I mean, from all reports, Mareep and unkown being stupid rare are pretty much unanimous
            (Also, finding an evolutionary item is 0.4% per pokestop… and I have my fave one)

          • whyyy

          • The singular Kuppo™

            Makes me wonder if Niantic knows how rare Pokemons are in the main game like seriously

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            XD exactly
            And Unknown is flat out the rarest

          • Guardian and the machine™

            I can understand unknown being rare, it’s supposed to be encountered in a mysterious and enigmatic ruin not in your bathroom or in an alley

            even though this logic can be applied to any other Mon, not only unknown…

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            Seriously though, it is rarer than ANY other mon in the game

    • The singular Kuppo™

      Pineco is more of an annoyance than a Pokemon, you just try to headbutt trees to get something good but you only get these things, it feels like it only exists just to annoy the player

      • Ultron

        Pineco is just a disgrace to the beautiful bug type

  • oh dang this Feraligatr is looking rad

      • The singular Kuppo™

        Radical

        • Totally

          • The singular Kuppo™

            I wish that I was decent at drawing so I could draw myself with my team ;_;

          • you dont have to be good at it. you just gotta do it for fun and you will get better :3

      • Daedardus

        Is this yours?

        • Yep. It’s part of the big Soul Solver team portrait thing I’m doing.

          • Daedardus

            Nice work. I wish I could draw, but I’m not that creative, unfortunately.

          • Thank you! And art just takes practice… and practice and crying a bit and more practice and lots of reference pictures and practice and art tips and more practice!

          • The singular Kuppo™

            Don’t expect it to solve your problems tho.

            Sorry I couldn’t resist

          • Lol oops

      • Ultron

        Nice! I want to draw my champion team, but have been so lazy

  • EarthenWarrior

    guys omfs watch this
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7anythinggoes-540481386
    this strat is pure evil

    • Daedardus

      Did your Switch preorder already process?

      • EarthenWarrior

        no….

        • Daedardus

          It’s still quite a few days, it’ll come soon. They didn’t charge you also? Does BB have release date delivery?

          • EarthenWarrior

            hopefully
            but here’s the lowdown
            no they did not charge me only because it was ordered so early plenty of others have the failed authorization thingy
            and i opted for in store pick up

            i just need to see that glorious [preparing] status to fill me with relief

          • Super Govnahman R

            maybe your store didnt get them yet

          • Daedardus

            Oh in store pick up, you should be good then I guess. Which is the case that came with your starter pack?

          • Super Govnahman R

            Since we are doing zelda themed icons you should make this yours!

          • EarthenWarrior

            reminds me of my original Mystery dungeon fangame Dungeons and Dragon Types
            where you are crapped out into the magical realm of Pokelot where you meet a young knight trainee (Partner) he/she sucks at fighting but wishes to be a great Knight

            the realm is ruled by King Dragonite a powerful but very elderly ruler and veteran knight, a his side Sir Aegislash Captain of the Royal Guard and instructor, and the top Knights are Sir Chesnaught, lady Delphox and Greninja the Quick, and Chesnaught is extremely stubborn and adamant with keeping things the way they are

          • EarthenWarrior

            i don’t known exactly but here lookie
            https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41%2B3pdgODRL.jpg
            dis one

            me I don’t do flashy cases, i like a stern solid case, this one looked the best at the time i may get a new one eventually

            But all that matters is Console, game and the Microsd which said it will be delivered by Friday, everything else like the case, book and the grips can be waited for

          • Daedardus

            Looks like a decent case to transport. I think I’ll buy the standard RDS case, and then get the Waterfield once I get more money and I have seen more impressions.

  • Ultron

    Okay, so I trained another Iron Fist Pangoro. How does this sound:
    Drain Punch
    Knock Off
    Power-up Punch
    Bullet Punch

    • MenacingCascoon

      Sounds pretty good. But pangoro is a bad pokemon, no?

      • Ultron

        Idk, I don’t think it’s too bad. It got access to Bullet Punch this gen so I thought leading with a power up punch for turn one, and then following up with bullet punch would be decent strategy.

      • Maybe its for a low tier?

        • Ultron

          Tbh I have no idea how tiers work

      • EarthenWarrior

        124 attack isn’t bad, it’s just frail but i’ve been using Pangoro on my Anything goes team and Life Orb Iron fisted Bullet Punch helps

        • MenacingCascoon

          Frail+booty speed= pretty bad despite attack (unless TR), but hey it must be working if you are using it in AG

  • Wake Up Govnah

    I couldn’t help myself anymore, ZELDA HYPE WOOT WOOT

  • Emotionless Protagonithsme

    So apparently some retailer listed a switch game called “Pikmin World”.

    Huh….at least this gives me hope that Pikmin 3DS isn’t Pikmin 4.

    • Ultron

      :O Now we just need Stars and Animal Crossing…also Kirby

      • Guardian and the machine™

        Especially Kirby

    • EarthenWarrior

      i really want to see my fan idea come into fruition
      Pikmin 4
      olimar finally earned enough treasure to finally take that family vacation he’s been yammering up about for the last 3 games and (unsurprisingly) he once again gets winged by space debris and lands on yet another uncharted planet but this time his wife and two kids are there too

      as each family member reawakens they meet up with the famed pikmin and utilize them to reunite even meeting new evolved Pikmin species (Red have thorny bodies, Yellow have gliders, blue have tails)

      but during this time, they discover that this planet isn’t so alone and they see metal droids harvesting plants and animals (and your ship) now you must stop these robot things free the captured creatures and get your ship back

  • Everything I did… it was all for nothing!

  • Wake Up Govnah
    • Guardian and the machine™

      The 1st one definitely

      • Guardian and the machine™

        Wait no, the 3rd one, they’re out of order for me °~°

        • Guardian and the machine™

          Wait no, it’s actually the 4th one….

          • Wake Up Govnah

            it changed for me

          • Guardian and the machine™

            Same

          • Guardian and the machine™

            Now that I look these pictures again I think the 1st one is better

    • *The Impatient Matenou*

      4 looks better

    • Wake Up Govnah

      No4

    • Ultron

      Stop horsing around, guys

    • TheNintendoChip

      I’m getting too hyped considering I can’t get it at release ;~;

            i wish my friend Trinity-Fate did the new Zelda
            that guy is a fucking artist when it comes to plus sized drawings

          • Better than OOT Zora King

            Well I imagine he would have to be an artist…. xD

          • EarthenWarrior

            i have all sorts of Deviantart friends/suppliers

          • I sketched one for ya? Like it was just a fast 5 minute sketch

            http://i.imgur.com/hqnAbdc.png?1

          • EarthenWarrior

            just a bit more thicc and then we’re talking also at a little more face phat

          • If you want, I can make this into a full drawing for you. I need a break from the team portrait and drawing people would be nice. And I can up the thicc levels

          • EarthenWarrior

            i want you to surpass your levels of thicc

          • I’ll draw thiccer than ive ever drawn thicc before

    • Better than OOT Zora King

      Ehh not a fan

      Also her head is flat

    • i want an animated zelda short in this style really. I also really like those lips.

    On the topic of BOTW V.A… I know a bit about it

    • Wake Up Govnah

      STAP IT

    • Better than OOT Zora King

      ???

      Also if this is spoilers…hot metal….

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        I’m just saying this… Not saying what it sounds like… but certain characters (…..) have gotten, from what I’ve seen… very mixed opinions on their voices…..
        Of course it comes from 4chan and reddit, but these opinions count… I guess

        • Guardian and the machine™

          What characters?

          Only say the ones that have been officially revealed please :3

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            The biggest controversy bringer (including non revealed characters) is Zelda herself…. her voice is either
            It sounds nice or
            “OMG THAT VOICE DOES NOT WORK AT ALL”
            “IS THERE A WAY TO TURN OFF THE VOICE?”
            “THIS IS WHY ENGLISH DUBBING SUCKS”

          • Better than OOT Zora King

            It didn’t sound too bad in the trailers

          • TheNintendoChip

            Well I’d imagine that they wouldn’t put bad VA in the trailers…

          • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

            Can somebody link me the trailer? I wanna see how different it sounds

          • Better than OOT Zora King
          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            She sounds decently similar, she’s kinda british

          • Better than OOT Zora King

            That’s not a bad thing necessarily. My favorite game VA is from Xenoblade, which is all British.

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            Yeah, a lotta people hate it though

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            Zelda’s voice, not Xeno

          • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

            ah well, I’ll just judge it myself. Honestly I’m just glad there is VA, I’ve never hated VA enough to turn it off

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            Agreed

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            Besides Pokken… that was attrocious

          • Guardian and the machine™

            Shit, I was about to remind you to change your pic :p

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            XD

          • Wake Up Govnah

            so bascially its the voice that tells you to open your eyes

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            Mostly

        • Better than OOT Zora King

          Lol what’s new? I feel like every video game with VA meets controversy.

          • Guardian and the machine™

            Even the trailer got controversy over the voice acting lol

          • Daedardus

            It’s almost like reddit and 4chan are places were there are lots of controversies and outrages, but I doubt that is actually the case.

          • Better than OOT Zora King

            Oh yeah never

    • Guardian and the machine™

      Is it good?

      What am I saying of course it’s good :v

    • Daedardus

      No spoilers of any kind please 😉

      • Seraph, #1 ARMS Let’s player

        Would it be a spoiler to say that the game is a lot better than even I imagined it to be?

        • Daedardus

          That’s not a spoiler, those are universal truths.

          • Legend of Falco BOTW

            Also, the mechanics look incredible… this game actually has some of those “THIS MAKES LOGICAL SENSE THANK GOD” things

  • OK JEEZ I THINK THIS IS GOOD??

    • Guardian and the machine™

      It’s perf

    • Better than OOT Zora King

      I’m having an identity crisis.

        • Better than OOT Zora King

          Ew no twilight princess

          We do not speak of that game

          • You mean the best Zelda game tied only with Wind Waker?

          • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

            No. I mean the one that has an art style so bad I literally can’t torture myself enough to play it past the first dungeon.

          • Play TPHD then. It fixes it up a bit. I don’t mind it though so I’m playing on the Wii

          • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

            -_-

            I bought TPHD and it wasn’t much better. It’s not so much the art style I hate as it’s just the unnecessary darkness. TP is the awkward emo phase of the LoZ series.

    Now that I’m older i appreciate the Advanced and D/P seasons much more

    • Better than OOT Zora King

      I loved the DP season, at least from what I’ve seen

    • Ultron

      D/P seasons were amazing

    • Guardian and the machine™

      IMO they were the best seasons of the anime.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Still prefer XY myself because of the smooth animations and little amount of fillers but i’d say Advanced and DP are in my top 5

    I’ve found my true self

  • MenacingCascoon

    Ah my Pokemon Journey has been a very nice.
    I remember five year old me going out to get a game with my two best friends (we are still friends to this day). We all planned on getting Kirby, but my older brother told me I should get Pokemon because its a much better game, and him being older we agreed. Me and my guy got Red, and the girl got Blue because she wanted to be different. Immediately, conflict arose with the starters. Nobody wanted to be last, and everyone wanted to be first, so decisions werent made for a while Being as commanding as ever the girl nominate ted herself to be first to pick, and despite my efforts both the girl and guy decided for me to be last. The girl picked Charmander as most children did. The guy picked Bulbasaur, and I was left with Squirtle. Our journey was long and hard, being five year olds (and my lack of understanding of English as well) we never understood where to go. We just rode the wind. After a around a solid year, we finally beat the games.
    Girl: Charizard Nidoqueen Vileplume Gengar Primeape Dewgong
    Boy: Venusaur Fearow Marowak Hypno Kingler Machamp
    Me: Blastoise Pidgeot Alakazam Raichu Nidoking Arcanine

    Girl Older siblings were done with their copies of GSC, so we hit the Jackpot. I got Silver, Girl got Gold, and Boy got Crystal. We decided to change the order of the person who picks first. Now Boy>Me>Girl Not much as changed since the last region, but our english definitely improved, so we finished the game in much quicker time.
    Boy: Feraligatr Ariados Skarmory Hitmontop Stantler Houndoom
    Me: Typhlosion Ampharos Noctowl Politoed Ursaring Umbreon
    Girl: Meganium Donphan Crobat Kingdra Espeon Granbull

    Our runs, were fun, but disaster struck us. My brother found his elemantary school “love of his life.” She was also in love with pokemon. To impress her my brother decided to woo her by giving her my copies of Red and Silver without my consent. My favorite games gone. I never wanted to a pokemon game again in spite of him. I spent so long crying my only hobbies were taken away from me without any action against him, but then I saw it. The commercial for the best Pokemon game.

    Pokemon Emerald revived my love for the series. I told girl and boy, and we didnt hesitate to buy our copies of Hoenn, and it was my turn to pick my starter first, and I didnt hesitate. Throughout the Hoenn journey all my experiences with the game were tripled. Everything felt fresher, better, more fun. Investing over 600 hours in battle frontier as a child was easily the best memory for me.
    Me: Sceptile Swellow Gardevoir Hariyama Aggron Absol
    Girl: Swampert Shiftry Delcatty Mawile Altaria Banette
    Boy: Blazeiken Pelliper MAnetric Flygon Zangoose Seviper

    Through my nearly 2+ years of playing Emerald a new pokemon commercial was announced. Boy and Girl decided their games, but I was not ready in the slightest. Sure, Dialga and Empoleon look like cool pokemon, but Sinnoh didn’t look amazing or great. At least not compared to Hoenn. I just wanted to play Battle frontier all day. My friends got their games, but I didnt get mine until a week afterward. Despite my tardiness they still waited for me. Maybe my disdain from Sinnoh stems from unwellingness to move on, or perhaps the fact I was stuck with the least appealing starter. Either way I hauled myself around Sinnoh. Both my friends loved Sinnoh, but immediately Once I beat the game, I went back to Good ol’ battle factory.
    Girl: Empoleon Froslass Roserade Pachirisu Lopunny Honchkrow
    Boy: Torterra Ambipom Drifblim GAstrodon Lucario Stuntank
    Me: Infernape Staraptor Luxray Ramparados GArchomp Floatzel

    We discovered it. There are pokemon websites on the internet. We discovered it right on time too. We found the whole dex to Pokemon Black and White revealed. Immediately we looked up everything we could. Gym teams, E4 teams. Pokemon cries. We knew the game inside out, before it came out! Even so, me and boy still enjoyed the game very much. Although Girl hated Unova with a burning passion.
    Boy: Emboar Unfezant Bisharp Jellicent Sawsbuck Druddigon
    Me: Samurott Mienshao Haxorus Braviary Krookodile Beartic
    Girl: Serperior Excadrill Mandibuzz Simipour Chandelure Vannilluxe

    Serebii wasnt all we discovered. We found amazing battling sites like smogon and we tested our skills, but this is when I discovered a site for rumors a site where people can just talk about pokemon. We discovered this place. I greatly believed gen 6 was the generation of connections. Ironically, I moved away from my two friends but we could stay connected and battle easily with Gen 6. Though the game was very lackluster, the hype for the game easily one of the best times, for the pokemon community IMO.
    Me: Chesnaught Talonflame Clawitzer Heliolisk Goodra Gourgeist
    Girl: Delphox Meowstic Aurorus Florges Furfrou Noivern
    Boy: Greninja Dragalge Sylveon Avalugg Pyroar Gogoat

    I dont have much of a crazy introduction. We each got out games at own paces. We each also decided to avoid spoiers. Which was a crazy success, and the feeling of seeing fresh new pokemon together was so refreshing
    Girl: Incineroar Toucannon Wishiwashi Kommo-O Lycanroc (Night) Cutiefly
    Boy: Primarina Minior Palloosand Tsareena Turtonator Silvally
    Me:Decidueye Crabomibnable Vikavolt Mimikyu Bewear Salazzle

    Here we are today. Pokemon has brought me closer together to my friends, and you guys. Im glad to be apart of the community.

    • MenacingCascoon

      I dont expect everyone to read it all, and Yes there are grammatical errors 😀

    • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

      Everyone has these great memories writing skills and I have none.

      Here’s my first memory though: I got lost in wayward cave with no flash and no ropes, and I didn’t know how to restart so I literally grinded my Torterra, aka my only Pokemon I used, up to like level 50.

      Then I read the manual and discovered how to restart so I did.

      • MenacingCascoon

        Those arent great writing skills trust me. I didnt put any effort into that. I hate hearing these lost stories. It happened to so many people it’s devastating.

        • EarthenWarrior

          ….

          • MenacingCascoon

            Do you have a problem?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i thought you said “i hate hearing long stories”
            and i have written a’many

        • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

          By writing skills I mean writing patience. I don’t have the patience to read let alone write that.

          It’s all good, at least I’ll have my first Pokemon in my memories…

          • MenacingCascoon

            Oh trust me, most people have no patience with reading the article and go straight to the comments, I know people wont bother to read it. I just thought it would be very interesting to write my game story

      • Legend of Falco BOTW

        The switch saves when turned off.. right?
        Wouldn’t that mean pokemon games no longer require saving…. and what if it eliminates soft resetting…

        • Guardian and the machine™

          I don’t think it will change anything related to soft resetting honestly..

        • Wake Up Govnah

          it only saves when it turns off from low battery

        • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

          Not necessarily. The switch goes into SLEEP MODE when it dies, not when turned off.

          So theoretically it could still be turned completely off and be soft reset

          • MelloMori

            Also that’s assuming that the main series games are coming to the switch, which is still fairly unlikely.

          • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

            Don’t say things like that…

          • MelloMori

            Why? I haven’t hid the fact that I don’t see the switch being a successor for Nintendo’s HandHeld line for many reasons(I’d actually argue its a device meant to appeal to both the home console and mobile crowd now). But really, its still very unlikely to happen any time soon. Pokemon games take years to develop, and even if we’re going to assume that GF had a dev kit from day one to work on, they would kind of have to make a game more appealing to the Home Console standards of RPG’s since the switch is a home console first and would demand change, which people might not find appealing.

          • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

            I know your point of view on this, but I just still want to play it on the TV with a standard controller.

          • MelloMori

            And I wouldn’t be surprised if they try a spin-off game on the switch with the control scheme in mind, but I just find it unlikely that it’ll ever be a main series game.

          • wait what character is that?

          • MelloMori

            Estimien from Final Fantasy 14. He’s a dragoon in that game(the armor’s pretty much the classic Final Fantasy Dragoon)

            Out of it he looks like this and is kind of into a pegan girl.

          • oh i thought it was a new BOTW character because everyone else was changing their avi to zelda ones

          • MelloMori

            Nah. I just love Dragoon’s in the FF series. I’ll probably just randomly change which dragoon I am. Probably Freya next, who actually would fit in the world of BOTW pretty well(she’s a mouse/rat woman).

    • EarthenWarrior

      that rash isn’t going away?

  • ok like thicc zelda is actually cute

  • Wake Up Govnah
    • Can we get someone to sneak the whole display out. I mean they took the Switch let’s go one step further

      • EarthenWarrior

        Alright I’ll need some tools and assistance
        Hmmmmmm
        Star, Govnah and myself should be enough and a getaway driver

        • EarthenWarrior

          At precisely 3AM we arrive
          -I hurl Govnah face first into the door of the building to open it
          -Star you have to draw smexy pictures and paste them over the security cameras so nobody’s suspicious
          -there’s bound to be actual enemies guarding the place at isn’t like sentries so while I swing Govnah like a club and bludgeon them, Star gets to work with the glass cutter and make several incisions
          -beating the guards surely means that a final boss will appear and we battle, and throughout the battle I use Govnah as a meat shield (he’s horribly bruised in the process)
          -carefully putting the figures in a container I use my bulk to haul the stuff to the van and we cheese it

            – Me and Govnah will take the display out of the building and into the van
            – The hookers drive us away and we split the goods amongst ourselves

    • MelloMori

      Ehh, depends on what it would include really.

    • The Guardian and the machine™

      Yeah of course I would totally *sees price of the Zelda collectors*……. Not pay it :p

    I just saw an actual tornado go right by my house. Like 4 or 5 blocks away but still. O.o

      Soo…You have a safe place to hide right. Away from windows and doors?

      • Pyromaniac Bokoblin

        Yeah as soon as I saw it I went to my basement.

          And the hips need more definition, more or a wide hourglass figure to really sell the curve

      No! Thats not Zelda

      • Well Earthen wanted it and I wanted different body shape practice so ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • HOW DO YOU DRAW BIRDS

  • EarthenWarrior

    well i’m bored, its too early to sleep… might as well rock back and forth crying if my switch never comes

    • *The Impatient Matenou*

      oh your switch will come YOUR SWITCH WILL COME.

  • ShinyXatu

    I decided to give TPHD one last shot to see if I could complete the Cave of Shadows but I just refuse. It’s hard and I’m not motivated to repeat it because it just isn’t fun. Maybe I’ll try again after 100%ing Breath of the Wild when I’m more tough and hardened so I can have a 20-heart Wolf Link follow me around post-game. Speaking of that, has anyone had experience with Walmart shipping? They’re the only place that will apparently have it here by Friday. Do they deliver with UPS/USPS, and has anyone had problems with it?

    • EarthenWarrior

      WALMART? i dunno Walmart is just not a super high scale retailer, i never would consider relying on them to get the switch in on time

      • ShinyXatu

        Well my system should be shipping overnight via Amazon (thank goodness that hasn’t fallen through), so I’m just trying to get Breath of the Wild now. I trust them with a single game more than a console.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh i wish mine all came from Amazon…….at least they’re reputable

          Never again will i use Best Buy for a console, i should’ve stuck to my traditions and go to Toys R Us like i usually do, barely anybody goes there for major stuff and i am literally 2 mins away from there….

          I JUST WANT THIS ORDEAL TO BE OVER WITH I’ve been panicy and anxious instead of pure hype for the last month and it don’t feel good, i’ve definitely gained like 8 pounds due to stress…

    • Ultron

      I ordered my Xbox from them, except I had it shipped to the store cause it was free or something. Everything was fine, but customer service was horrible -_-

      • ShinyXatu

        I decided to go for it. I’ve been interested in getting one of those fancy white PS4 Slims sometime later in the year (who knows if that will actually happen), so we’ll consider this a test of their wit.

        • Ultron

          Best of luck!

          • ShinyXatu

            Thank you. They’re still insisting on release day delivery on the e-mail so things are looking up. I simply can’t wait!

          • Ultron

            I wish I was getting one! One day!

          • EarthenWarrior

            :c I wish my thing was looking up… I just want a clear cut answer

    • Wake Up Govnah

      Walmart has fast fast shipping

    The hype behind the Switch is very interesting. I’ve talked to numerous friends of mine who have a long history of playing games, including the Wii U and 3DS, but I haven’t talked to a single one who is excited about it. I brought it up this morning and they said they didn’t understand the point of it. They also said that it would probably be underpowered and unable to run high-quality games on the go. It seems to be only the younger high-schoolers and myself who are really pushing the console: I guess this really does show that they’re going for adults and kids, rather than focusing on the in-between. I just found this fascinating: there isn’t a world where I won’t be hyped for a new Nintendo console.

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Sorry long post ahead lol:
      Yeah the Switch is a weird kind of mixed bag. While on one hand you have people like you’ve said who are really indifferent towards it you also have a resurgence of people who haven’t bought a Nintendo system in a while (or possibly a gaming system in general) that are super excited and interested in it. Of course you have the people that will buy it no matter what, but it’s interesting to see that the Switch is actually bringing people back in who haven’t owned a Nintendo system in a while or at the very least haven’t bought one on day one or close to it. I myself know people who either haven’t owned a Nintendo system since the GameCube let alone bought a system in general on day one that are getting the Switch when it launches. I think a lot of the fear and cautiousness comes from how poorly the Wii U did. Many people saw how bad it was and passed altogether on it. I for one only ended up buying one (that was refurbished and cheaper) because after I jokingly told my brother I’d buy one if he gave me a cashiers check for half the cost he actually did and it was funny enough that it forced my hand. If not for that I would likely have never gotten one. I think the Switch will prove itself and do well enough. Nintendo just needs to stay on top of its upkeep and branding while at the same time not over sell what it can do. Look at the Wii U vs the PS Vita for instance. I know they’re very different, but bear with me lol. the Vita was a great system and could have been Sony’s gateway to the handheld world to compete with the 3DS. However it never got the support it needed and unfortunately it died. The Wii U on the other hand was pushed so hard that even people that didn’t own it got sick of it fast. There needs to be a balance. I think the Switch will be a solid system, but it needs the right support to really succeed.

      Honestly, the system looks quite good

    Well its getting late and I’m going to log for the night. But before I go, I give you one last good laugh. What might be the first great Cosplay of 2017.

    Why does the Beta for Pokémon go look like 50x better than the real fucking deal

    • Wake Up Govnah

      because most betas remove shit that people would of actually liked

      • Legend of Falco BOTW

        IT LOOKED SO GOOD!!!
        ALSO YOU WERE BRENDAN/MAY NOT MR. “OC DO NOT STEAL”

    • Guardian and the machine™

      Because it is

  • EarthenWarrior

    Switch…….

    • Ultron

      Alright, someone get this man a switch so he can shut up

      • EarthenWarrior

        It’s all i want….I just want solid proof
        My Pre-order is in the works
        It will be available March 3rd
        And everything else i ordered will come as well

        Is that so much to ask?

    • If I have to wait another month then you can wait 3 days

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If I have to wait 2-3 years by which time it’ll probably be obsolete, you can wait a few days.

  • I like how in Yooka Laylee the lizard guy can eat those flower things for power ups. I wasn’t sure I really liked his design but that’s a clever use of the animal and it’s kinda neat

    • EarthenWarrior

      i still wish they gave him some kinda pants, also i really hope they don’t cop out on good bosses

    Switch reviews are coming in! Check your usual review sites if you’re curious towards their opinions!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I don’t need nobody else’s opinion cept’ mah own
      My philosophy for game reviews usually range to people who like it, nitpick it or downright criticize it for no amiable reason

      I think that truly matters is the player’s own enjoyment and experience

      And me i’ve never complained about how much FPS or whatevers are not going on, i still use my Wii U and it runs perfectly (literally just finished Splatooning)

      Point is i need a Nintendo Switch to ensure that my crusty enlarged black heart continues to work

      • *The Impatient Matenou*

        yeah what he said.

      • Game reviews just aren’t helpful most of the time. You just scroll down to the number at the end. Game reviews need to be more in depth and we don’t really have that much

        • EarthenWarrior

          just reminds me of my asshole of a Brother, he nitpicks every little thing and has given up on consoles completely

          i hope this time around he would try BOTW as a change of pace from DOTA

          • What I meant was that game reviews are just surface level descriptions of what’s in the game. It doesn’t dissect things in the game and break it down to show why it’s bad or what mistakes were made or even just the brilliant parts of a game

        • Well they are helpful. Like if I hadn’t seen reviews for Mighty No. 9 and Sonic Boom I would’ve been screwed

  • *The Impatient Matenou*
    • MelloMori

      Because Japan loves consuming global culture without a filter.

  • Dicie

    10s across the board from Famitsu! What a time to be alive.

    • Isn’t Famitsu like, infamously harsh?

      • *The Impatient Matenou*

        yeah they do a LOT of criticizing of games.

      • Dicie

        They are, similar to EDGE but they’ve been reviewing for slightly longer. Gave out maybe a few more perfects compared to EDGE.

      • Daedardus

        It’s the reverse, they judge games by how much you pay them for advertising. Even Nintendogs and FFXIII-2 got a 40. It means nothing really.

        • Guardian and the machine™

          Maybe Nintendogs is perfect for it’s own merits?

          But FFXIII-2 possibly being the only FF getting a perfect score is inexcusable -_-

    • Ultron

      Haven’t seen that since Black and White

  • *The Impatient Matenou*
  • EarthenWarrior

    Well it’s not the Switch but Best Buy emailed me that my Charge Grip Shipped

    • MelloMori

      Received an Email that my switch did ship today, but not my copy of BTOW if that makes you feel better.

  • EarthenWarrior

    https://youtu.be/Vd6wi8nDJhU
    GUESS WHO GOT CONFIRMATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Best Buy not only recognized my order number THEY HAVE ME ON A SPREADSHEET, THATS BUISNESS MUMBO JUMBO FOR EARTHY GETTING A SWITCHIE!!!!!!!!!!
    https://youtu.be/3GwjfUFyY6M

  • Maybe I should’ve begged to stay home today… blehggssgshhh

    • EarthenWarrior

      You could lick doorknobs until you catch a virus

      • Yeahhhh I could… but I mostly just want food. I’m freaking starving right now

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          You at school? Go to the “bathroom” and then head straight to a vending machine lol

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well be thankful that you don’t have my Guzzlord appetite
          I’ve been waking up at 5AM every morning with sharp hunger pangs compelling me to lug my body downstairs and consume whatever lies in my path

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Just go on a bus, works every time.

    • Guardian and the machine™

      I know how this feels like ;-;

  • TheWinterMonster6893

    Man I know it’ll probably be fine, but the lack of change at all on my order is nerve racking lol Still saying processing……..It’ll likely change tomorrow or even Friday morning as my order is an in store pick up, but still. I imagine for in store pick ups they’re in less of a hurry to update stiff as no matter what I’ll need to be there in order to actually get my order. lol

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • EarthenWarrior

      I have 3

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Lucky you

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I never get good stuff by WT 🙁
      BTW it might be an RNG manipulation and clone, not necessarily a hack,

      • UnburdenedLegume

        It probably is but its 6IV and shiny, i’m really not complaining. Gonna transfer it to Sun later

  • EarthenWarrior

    I haven’t made a fakemon in forever
    I’ve struggled with the aspect of a Poison/Electric type, and the only thing I can see is a slimy electrical mollusk that oozes out a sticky poisonous mucus from its feet and once someone steps in it they are glued down as it sends a powerful electrical pulse from its eyes and it travels through the slime frying whatever is stuck

    • Just make it like those electric chu-chus in Wind Waker

    • UnburdenedLegume

      YES GIVE ME POISON/ELECTRIC. I ALWAYS KNEW YOU LOVED ME

      • Legend of Falco BOTW

        A lot of us have made one of that type

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Because you all know i am the electric master here

    • Legend of Falco BOTW

      That’s been done in a fangame

      • EarthenWarrior

        Well nothing else works, they’re very incompatible types

    • Ultron

      Better make something that works with levitate or that thing is DOA

  • Wake Up Govnah

    I can’t believe we are down to 2 days left

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      So unbelievably excited!!! Hahaha

    • Guardian and the machine™

      Time really flies…

    • EarthenWarrior

      Currently at precisely 4PM EST actually 1 Day 7 Hours and 58 Minutes

    Nintendo has confirmed Switch cartridges are made to taste bad so kids won’t eat them. Don’t try it yourself I suppose.

    • Guardian and the machine™

      I wasn’t going to try it but after you said that I’m definitely doing it

    • *The Impatient Matenou*

      wait what do the switch cartriges look like?

    • Omg I love Nintendo

  • EarthenWarrior

    Anybody around with Amazon Prime
    All the Breath of the Wild Amiibo are up so grab as many as you can afford before it’s too late
    http://nintendoeverything.com/link-and-zelda-breath-of-the-wild-amiibo-up-on-amazon-for-prime-members/

    • Ultron

      Omg the Zelda one is amazingly lame compared to the others. They didn’t even give her an action pose. She’s just standing there.

      • EarthenWarrior

        what would rather she look like? a candid up-skirt shot?

        • Ultron

          Idk, shooting a light arrow? Anything? Does she do nothing exciting? They could’ve at least held off on hers if it’s spoilery

          Also, I’m really disgusted all of this Link merch has him riding horses that aren’t Epona.

          • Daedardus

            There most certainly will be a new Zelda amiibo once the game’s been out for a while (maybe when the DLC hits?). I expect a Ganon amiibo and Zelda in that white dress, or whatever is also important in the story. They have still a long way before they milked the Zelda amiibo cow dry.

          • Ultron

            That’s true. I look forward to the second wave. Maybe we’ll get a real Epona one, not that fake horse lookalike shit.

          • EarthenWarrior

            settle down Horseface, call it a hunch but something tells me that somewhere roaming Hyrule there’s a White Maned red Welsh Cob running unchecked that only spawns extremely rarely and it has the perfect horsey stats

          • Ultron

            No, I want Epona to be part of the story, not some shitty side quest.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh the Malon Incarnation has her as always

          • Ultron

            Probably. Although in TP we just had her from the start :/ All I’m saying is that when I get the game, I am not riding another horse unless I absolutely have to. That’s like adultery.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I have a name for a specific coat color in mind….but my heart is telling me not to…

      • Daedardus

        She’s fine. She’s rather attractively proportioned without having a too sexual pose. I especially like her hair this time around.

        • Ultron

          She just looks like she’s playing on an ipad.

      • Guardian and the machine™
        • Ultron

          Yeah, that could’ve worked.

      • Idk I still like it, I just wish her amiibo did more in game. I was going to buy it but decided against it because I didn’t really want the shield

        • EarthenWarrior

          heads up, Blocking and Dodging are more important than ever

        • Ultron

          Yeah, but I imagine her inevitable second one will do something else

  • EarthenWarrior
    • Ultron

      Why is everyone obsessed with Shovel Knight

      • EarthenWarrior

        Kuz its awesome

      • Guardian and the machine™

        Apparently is the “new” trending topic

      • it’s so good

    • who is she shes purple and weraring a really cool pretty dress

      • no but really who is she

      • EarthenWarrior

        Madame Meeber and…the Fairy of Shovelry

        • :3

          • EarthenWarrior

            All the more reason to get the Shovel Knight Amiibo

    • Guardian and the machine™

      Every supermarket in the world needs this right now :0

  • Daedardus

    Earthen, does BB do midnight releases? Then you might your Switch even sooner than I do since the store here only opens at 10 am. Will probaby have to wait till 7 pm for the delivery guy to bring Zelda.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So they are doing a Midnight Release for Best Buy, so i must be rested and prepared

    I have work till Four and that only gives me 6 Hours of rest before i try to be there at 10PM and blindly stand around for 2 Hours while the clock ticks, that means i gotta be rested focused and have my bowels and bladder absolutely emptied

    it’s not gonna be easy i am not a Night Person, but i do plan on playing for a tiny bit then going to bed, i rather not blow out my sleep schedule on this stunt but i’ve been waiting for this ever since the initial teaser

    I have all my snacks and drinks sitting in my closet and i yern to consume them
