ME continues berating people in this next exciting episode of his Platinum Lets Play. Watch it here.
I simply think they'll choose Mijumaru because it's the cutest/girliest of the three and it's similar to Piplup
Also, Tsutaja will obviously go to Ash... and I won't be surprised if he'll get Pokabu too similar to getting Turtwig and Chimchar in DP
Meguroko - I don't really like it but not hate it either
She may not look like a Female Anime Stereotype, but I'd rather wait it out until I am absolutely certain that she isn't. I mean, when Dawn was first unveiled, people actually thought she was more of a gothic-emo female stereotype, and yet when she actually debuted in the series, she wasn't even anything like that at all.
There's also the matter of whether she's actually going to be on Ash's team or his rival.
Not a pain at all ... I think that we had a conversation on that when the first scans were showing up, which might be where he got that idea from, but after looking back over the scans that we have so far, I don't see anything that suggests that. I won't be able to tell for sure though until tomorrow (little more than 12 hours from now) when I go buy my own copy of the magazine. I'll search it over tomorrow and report my findings on it, but from what I've seen of the scans taken, there was no indication that I can find.
Haven't we been over this? WPM said that Gin suspected that their evidence might be wrong, but they haven't debunked it. According to their source, Nanoplasm, the Celebi products are tentative and it would appear to be getting similar treatment to Spiky-ear Pichu (unlike the other Generation II legendaries).
I don't care what the fan consensus on a new type is. It means absolutely nothing.
I don't believe in MindCrystal anymore. I think I've made that clear in most, if not all, of my posts over the last few days.
If Z is a Celebi Forme, then I believe it will just be impersonating or possessing Celebi and is actually a new Pokémon. The Celebi Forme could also be a separate character, but I'm more in favor of the first possibility.
Whatever the case is, I strongly feel that the Generation V games should be related to Johto in some way. If that happens, I won't complain about HGSS not having the content I wanted or MindCrystal not being released.
Because of the rush. They could really do many HGSS spinoffs before that. They're ruining HGSS marketing, making it feel like those games were just lousy fanservice that they don't really care about. 2011 would be the perfect date. Now it's too early.
I'm also fed up, to be honest. And that eternal "animals" argument is killing me. Okay, maybe there are unlimited Pokemon. But do we have to know them all?
