Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.
We had a couple of reports of people's signatures getting edited etc. in a bad way. You can rest assured this wasn't done by staff and nobody has compromised any of our databases.
However, remember to keep your passwords secure. If you use similar passwords to elsewhere which has been accessed, people and even bots may be able to access your account.
We always recommend using unique passwords, and two-factor authentication if you are able. Make sure you're as secure as possible
Summarized about 95% of the 7th gym battle episode text
"""Get the 7th badge at Sekka Gym!! Ash was confronted with Hachiku's strength while training with him. But, he must collect all 8 badges
Ash graps the key to victory!? His two Pokemon are these!
Pic of Ash with a fist raised: We'll win together!!
The Pokemon Ash choose are heating up this cold gym。They'll(Ash's Pokes) show their power tempered by their long journey!!
Pokabu attains/obtains a new power!?
ーーWhy did Pokabu have a rope tied around him when Ash met him?
The acts of Pokabu's former trainer come to light!
Training with Tsunbear, Wariburu awakens..!?
-After training with Tsunbear, did Warubiru attain a strong/courageous heart!?
-Wishing to beat that Tsunbear! Becoming cowardly after losing his Sunglasses, Warubiru battles at full power!(these two are the bottom picture captions)
Warubiru develops feelings of rivalry with Hachiku's Tsunbear. Not just training their bodies, as without a strong heart it's hopeless, the challenge lies in a huge wall(this last bit is suspect >.<)
Finally, I'm tired but I'll summarize a few points said about Hachiku's Pokemon:
Check out Hachiku's 3 Pokemon!
Furigeo - Knows Rapid Spin. Uses his disk-like body as a weapon. Speedily attacks from mid-air.
ICe Cream Cone - Knows Icicle Spear. Gives you the chills from just looking at it! Floating about, evading, a troublesome Pokemon.
Tsunbear - Knows Icicle Crash. Not just powerful but intense as well. Sharpened the power of his techniques training with Hachiku. Are there any openings in his defense !?"""
These are the other parts of the sommelier showdown eps' summary, you can put this in the first post too
"Which is the appropriate first partner[pokemon]? Picking which pokemon are most compatible for a person is one of the jobs of a Pokemon Sommelier. Out of the many Pokemon available, it's time to pick her first partner!"
"A Pokemon Sommelier, with A-Class certification, same as Dento, named Pinot Noir arrives. The one to pick Momocchi's perfect partner will be....?"
I'm curious as to what Langley is saying to Ash, in this image after she loses, what Iris and Langley say to each other as well. If it's not too much trouble (and if you can read it lol.) Don't need to translate the entire thing as I have an idea of what's being said there.
