Hey, you don't know me, but when you posted that Ash's Palpitoad thing as an April Fools Joke, can you just tell the people in this thread http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=511927&page=5
that it was a joke, because they are taking it seriously, it's past april fools, so you can just tell them that it was a joke.
I've seen at least one recent topic involving "rescuer psychic Iris", with the full anime rumors you spread being posted (prissy guy, starts with Mu'una; Iris gets Koromor, Kibagon, Mijumaru; etc) and I know I've seen it brought up in other topics elsewhere.
It is a shame a lot of the older users who were around during the AG or early DP era are now gone. Its understandable people would want to move on from Pokemon eventually though.
I've already kinda decided I plan to retire from the anime once DP ends, and I probably won't watch the BW arc regularly. 13 years was a good run, and I'm starting to get the feeling the show will never have concrete closure, so best to go out on a high note with DP.
It is a shame that none of us will probably be around for whenever the final arc of the show truly is, but I guess that can't be helped.
I still have time to watch TV/videogames though, even with a full-time job so it doesn't matter much to me in terms of time.
