    Anime & Manga General Discussion

    I started read Magical Pokémon Journey. I really liked it but I can't find scanlations for volume 2. I wonder if Almond actually has any Pokémon. If he doesn't I don't know why he's called a trainer. Overall I thought it had way more "soul" than Adventures. Would recommend. If they crammed as...

    Graphics, Animation and General Model Quality

    "I just want jazzier idles and non dull colors. I don't want the dexcut to be retroactively ' 'justified' I want it gone" is what I was about to say until I remembered I hated the way the humans look in 3d. Their skin textures just don't mesh with the rest of the game for some reason.

    How do you see people getting mad at losing a series staple

    And see that a symptom of the problem of not changing ENOUGH? Is me wanting just a better version of what gens 4 and 5 offered such an Alien concept to people? Even with Indie games reusing older formats gaining popularity for years

    National Dex in Scarlet and Violet?

    Maybe Gamefreak stoking resentment between the competitive scene and hard-core collectors was a bad idea. Cutting the dex didn't turn Pokémon into an e sport and thinking that it might later down the line is foolish. TPC should do one the following: A) just accept that VGC is unpopular B) Pull...

    Do you have any Pokemon Anime headcanons?

    @Greninjaman trainer gets over his head and thinks he can catch Zapdos. Zapdos shocks him and he goes to the hospital. His mom goes to the hospital and demands he give up his Pokémon journey because she doesn't trust him not to get hurt again. What part of this yarn doesn't work for you?

    Do you have any Pokemon Anime headcanons?

    Damien is not from Pallet town. At least one of the two unknown trainers was forced to quit by a parent or grandparent because he failed to catch a legendary bird and got seriously hurt

    What DON'T You Want To See In Gen IX?

    Time events. Tournaments are fine but the special raids are Fomo nonsense. Catching Pokémon without battling.

    National Dex in Scarlet and Violet?

    I don't understand why people still bring up competitive balance when it comes to the dexcut. The native to Kalos marker was a thing. Just blanket ban Pokémon instead of not programming into the games. Not hard

    Features from past games you want to return

    Well too bad I can't. I'm still mad and I will complain about it on internet every new Gen for the rest of my life to very slowly decreasing degrees. Or you know they could always bring it back next Gen to get the "everyone is here" hype.

    Why the hate for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

    Most fans of the mainline games were children or non existent from Firered came out. Also BDSP costs $60
