    Things that grind your gears!

    I understand why the whole "can't escape" mechanic is there, but in the vast majority of cases it just causes annoyance and delay, not any sense of risk.

    What's The Last Thing You Bought?

    I finally decided to start up a PS3 library today. Ordered a slim model and a copy of Demon's Souls. Next games on my watchlist are Nier, Drakengard 3, the MGS games, and any available (and good) DMC games.

    I'm trying to get a good streak in the Maison. First run ended at only 49, so I'm switching up my team a bit. Last team used Garchomp, Greninja, and Mega Gengar. So now I'm planning a new team: Mega Kangaskhan - Fake Out/Return/Crunch/Power-Up Punch Jolly nature, 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe...

    What's The Last Thing You Bought?

    Ordered a complete Japanese copy of White 2 on Ebay for 40 US loaves. US sellers really gotta put down the crackpipe. The box alone for that game goes for 30+ over here

    Things that grind your gears!

    I swear I have some curse where if I'm shiny/IV breeding Scythers, it takes an absurdly long amount of time compared to my other hunts. It's specifically Scyther too. No other pokemon has been as painful to breed, not even pseudo legendaries.

    Unpopular Gaming Opinions

    As a big Souls fan this seems to be a common conception of the games- and I understand why. There is definitely a very vocal minority who plays the games solely for the bragging rights and "git gud" mentality. How I see it though is that the games simply exist for the enjoyment of overcoming a...

    Couldn't respond for a while cuz Serebii thought I was a bot but yeah, both Pokeball and Fancy patterns were in the box. AFAIK, I can't post a picture because of this site's image rules though, so you'll just have to take my word.

    X & Y Recent Happenings Thread

    So recently I bought an o3DS LL alongside a Japanese copy of X, and when it came today I found that the save file not only included a bunch of old event pokemon, but EVERY Vivillon form. Saved them all in bank since I'm starting my own playthrough, and I am hyped to say the least.

    Which Alola Starter Is Your Favorite Based On The Final Stage Only?

    I'm surprised about the Decidueye results. Even with only 9 votes I expected Rowlet's evo to be the most popular.

    Rate the pokemon move above

    8/10 amazing defensive move and great potential for some annoying tank builds, but has a few weaknesses like Taunt, Roar/Whirlwind, and Haze/Clear smog. Spike Cannon

    Fromsoft games and feel-good Nintendo platformers work really well together when released around the same timespan. Been playing both and it's great

    Weird moves certain Pokemon can or cannot learn

    Feraligatr not being able to learn Waterfall in gen 2 has always confused me. That just had to have been an oversight, right?

    Most annoying regional layouts in any game?

    I love how inter-connected Sinnoh is, but the HMs were just ridiculous. Its layout is so perfect, but the fact that you're required to use HM slaves or waste move slots make it a slog. Doesn't help that the Pokedex doesn't give many options. Even Platinum feels a little limited. Galar has the...
