Thanks! & I know, though some Megas are genuinely broken. The way that ORAS set it up, is that it appears M-Evolution is in a whole separate universe. I wonder if Game Freak will continue to focus on this universe, or ever return to the original with its lack of Megas. At least this way, they could potentially save themselves should M-evos had not proved that popular. Yeah, B/W's original plot was very nice and a bit more mature. I really liked that direction, because it felt like the series matured with me for once.
This: Oculus Rift, Sony, And The Coming Virtual Reality Revolution | Fast Company | Business + Innovation There are many articles, look up the HTC Vive while your at it and be amazed. Basically, Nintendo's current direction has been the direct opposite, the result of which has been the Wii U's poor sales IMO. GameFreak & Ninten need to focus on user experience more, which is why I cited the VR change. It offers something different in how we approach games and gameplay, and perhaps that could be reflected storywise as well. Hopefully that idea makes sense anyways XD
Thats good. I'm just trying to survive my first semester of College lol
:lol: I've kinda gotten used to it, but it wouldn't be so bad if they gave those evolutions to mons that actually needed them. Won't lie, I like Mega Rayquaza for example, but at the same time it is so pointless y'know? I'm more interested in story elements, things that matter. Wish Game Freak focused on the experience of the player character, and how they felt/experienced in that world. Maybe this Virtual Reality experience revolution will wake up Nintendo in general. There I go rambling again, didn't you miss that? Be well miss small, hopefully you'll be active here like the old days?
My take on "holiness" is a hero syndrome, honestly. He seems to be saying that they took too much upon themselves and paid a price for it.
As for why he tweeted about this, he got into a frenzy following his tweet about the timeline. He received questions about other characters (nothing too interesting) and then he apparently got the urge to add something... different. I think that he deleted the tweet after realizing that he'd gone too far.
I thought you should know about a recent tweet from Toshinobu Matsumiya (Game Freak's scenario writer) about the fate of Hilbert/Hilda. He has since deleted the tweet, but I saved the text and asked for a translation from a friend:
As described by the social anthropologist Lévi-Strauss, the ones who passed the rites of passage will possess holiness. Therefore Cheren and Bianca can advance toward their respective dreams. But Hilbert and Hilda possess such excessive holiness due to Team Plasma that they are viewed as heroes, unable to dwell in the workaday world. But sharing this holiness with N shall balance it, so they continue their journey. But due to being the hero at the current moment, calamity ensues during their travels and they are unable to return to Unova....... This is my fantastic imagination for the BW protagonist.
Yeah, while we probably didn't see it back then, the trend of new formes did start in Gen 4 even though the "concept" was introduced in Gen 3. I still like Giratina's origin forme a bit better than the regular one, but they probably should have stopped then.
Formes would be fine if they weren't so numerous nowadays and as you said meaningful. The worse case scenario is that every past big time/box art legend would get a new forme, but hopefully Game Freak knows better. Hopefully. There has to be better ways of handling legends than new formes.
