    Is RNG manipulation a fair way to play games?

    Unlike using external devices or abusing glitches both of which involve using advantages you were not supposed to have, RNG manipulation involves playing by the game rules. Except you use patterns or find some way to deliberately cause the RNG to do certain effects that a casual player would not...

    What is your opinion on the wireless adapter for the GBA?

    It actually only supported a limited amount of games (including Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, which had one bundled). However, it was an early attempt at wireless technology before the DS. Only drawbacks aside from the limited support is that if your friend didn't have one too, yours was...

    Why hasn't the Master Ball completely replaced all balls?

    Back in the original games, it is plainly stated that Silph cancelled production due to Team Rocket with insinuation that the one given to the player is the only one that exists. However, Gen 2 retcons this by having not only the player get a Master Ball from Elm (retconning the one the player...

    What are some remakes you find more nostalgic than the originals and why?

    For instance, I find Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen more nostalgic than the original Gen 1 games due to growing up with FRLG without knowing it was a remake and only getting to know the Gen 1 games way later.

    Gen 1 has been remade twice. While the gameplay has been discussed a lot, which did the music and OST the best? While objectivly the orchestra of LGPE would be considered superior to the Gameboy sound, which do you actually like best? And for what reasons?

    Which kind of OST do you prefer in video games?

    While orchestra is arguably superior, some people may still prefer the chiptunes. If there are any others I don't know, there is a third choice.

    The Gen 1 and 2 games got rereleased for the 3DS virtual console before it was shut down. What possiblity is there for the Gen 3 games RSE and FRLG to get a rerelease? And for that matter Gen 4 and onwards at some point in the future?

    To what extent does the collecting aspect as well as the Pokedex hold up?

    In the original games, completing the Pokedex is quite emphasized. Oak asks the player to fullfill his dream. Even the English slogan is "Gotta catch em all". And the Pokemon Origins special put emphasis on completing the Pokedex as Red's primary goal as opposed to becoming champion like his...

    Objectively, how has Pokémon really been doing from 1996 to today?

    Most discussions about the games and the franchise in general often are biased in nature, disliking things like not keeping certain features, game story not being good, games being too easy or linear, lack of wild battles in Let's Go, etc. So from an objective perspective, how has Pokemon really...

    Has there always existed toxicity among Pokémon fans?

    Even before the internet was common? There is a tendency to find the fandom today toxic, with the many complaints about the games among other things. However, I remember reading in the early days that Pokémon cards were once banned in schools due to toxic behavior among children. Particularly...

    Why exactly does Giovanni decide to disband Team Rocket after losing in the Viridian Gym battle against the player?

    In RBY, FRLG, and LGPE, the end of Team Rocket is kind of anticlimactic. After defeating Giovanni at the Viridian Gym, if you talk to him in RBY and FRLG (it just happens immediately in LGPE) he suddenly for some reason decides that losing to the player makes him unable to face Team Rocket, and...

    What is your opinion on the Rescue Team DX remake of the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games?

    There have been tons of discussions on the remakes of the mainline Pokémon games. And the recent Let's Go Kanto remakes and the latest Diamond and Pearl remakes have been quite controversial. However, one remake that is less talked about is the Mystery Dungeon DX game, which is remade from the...

    What do you think of the Kanto Rider Federation?

    They technically were in the Johto games. However, they were not exactly fleshed out much. In FRLG, they get a major role during the first quest on Two and Three Islands. They try to take over Three Island and the player has to defeat all of them. They are kind of different from the average Team...

    How well did Game Freak expand on the world of Pokémon in Gen 2?

    Gen 2 introduced many new features and expanded on the world of Gen 1. Did Game Freak do a good job on expanding the lore? Do the things introduced in Gen 2 make sense worldbuilding wise?
