Happy Go Lucky
It just has a creepy vibe to it, but I wouldn't call it scary.
Gen 4 games. I was excited that they (Diamond and Pearl) were going to be on the DS for first but quickly got disappointed because the battles lagged horribly.
I'll agree with the lag issues, but Gen 4 was anything but overhyped. Gen IV paved the way for lots of Pokémon by virtue of the special/physical split. That's more than enough reason to return to Pokémon for me. Suddenly, things that weren't as functional with their types before shot-up instantaneously overnight. Shadow Ball on Gengar is a prime example, and do I need to mention the relevance of Outrage? Plus, the evolutions gained in IV were a breath of fresh air for things that never stood a chance, even if most of them are now competitively inferior or obsolete. Ironically, 3 of the 4 Ice-type evolutions gained in IV are still viable in OU...
Mega Gallade is the epitome of over-hyped. In-game, it performs brilliantly. In battle scenarios, it requires teamwork and uses that coveted Mega Evolution slot. Lopunny has immaculate coverage thanks to Scrappy, and Megacham hits like a truck AND has priority. This is beautiful, since most people on Serebii.net thought Mega Gallade would supersede Megacham, and nobody gave two $hits about Mega Lopunny. Oh, and Mega Gallade had a cape, so it had to be epically superior. Wrong!
The Kanto region in general. It's being shoved into our minds every generation and isn't very exciting to explore now unlike back then. And Gym Leaders barely getting involved into the plot after they're beaten.
How has it been "shoved into our minds"? Besides the remakes and some mega-evolutions/legendaries, I don't recall Kanto being shoved down our throats any more than any other generation. If anything, Hoenn has. Not saying I'm upset by that since I love Hoenn, but I see way more Hoenn references throughout the games than I do Kanto.
So, two megas perform better competitively and therefore makes anyone's opinion on the matter wrong? Lol. K.
Hey bro, I know you're a little slow, but did you read the OP, my post in it's entirety, or are you just playing Devil's advocate in the thread? The thread's about over-hyped Pokémon, not personal choice aesthetics.
For fighting-types who are Mega Evolutions, opportunity cost is critical. And Mega Gallade's is sufficiently higher than others. There was a definite hype train for Mega Gallade in the beginning, it's died down. Don't like comp play? Avoid Pokémon websites, because the fandom is comprised extensively of competitive players.
I'd say this applies to the anime in general, not just the movies. I think the anime solely exists to promote the games, nothing more, whether it's the main series, movies or the specials.
Japan tends to promote the anime quite heavily, yet it usually never lives up to it I reckon.
