probably the best anime ever made, with the movie being the best part

i need to rewatch rebuild 3.0 though because i loathed it and i need to make sure that i didn't miss the point

Finally picked up Majora's Mask cart today, which I'm pretty psyched about. It was my single most-wanted game for the system, and now I have it.

Coolest cartridge ever.

Also picked up Yoshi's Island for SNES + 7 or 8 random NES games, none of which are noteworthy, but bring my NES collection up to 301 unique titles, or 44% of its US library.

Going for a full bug team since theres lots of cool new buggy boys in this game, but I also hate rocks now.

got my motherfucking swift swim giga drednaw, at last

just need a lightning rod raichu now

will you post your book on here when it's done?
the site might actually be dead at that point, but i'd be happy to share it with anyone who'd be interested, yeah

verbatim i want you post in my thread. you live in a town near me that kind of sucks. not kind of sucks. it totally sucks. fuckin shopko is gone so i cant make my shopko ishpeming thread like i used to whenever i drive thru ish peming. fuck ishpeming. houghton is better hands down no contest. btw i think ur pretty ok as a person even tho i never met u but u seem pretty chill now. dude theres fuckin snow everywhere now up here. fuckin getting white and shit. hows the snow in ishpeming. i think its probably on the ground and a lot of it but idk. i was in iron mountain last week for squanto's holiday and there was no snow but then on like wednesday it snowed a shit ton dude. fuckin crazy and now im back in houghton and theres even more snow. i like the snow but goddamn can i catch a break like jeez louise am i right? fuckin covering my car and shit.
I'm not one to whine about where I live and shit (or even the weather, for that matter), but yeah, Ishpeming is pretty fucking miserable when you look at it. We just got obliterated by like 30+ inches of snow last weekend, so that's been fun. I can only imagine how shitty it is over there.

Like I said, though, I'm not one to complain—I mean, it sucks big donkey balls and all, but since I lead a fairly sedentary lifestyle anyway (sans my gym membership), it gives me the perfect excuse to stay in. I'm glad you don't seem to hate it too much, though. That's the right attitude to have up here.

Houghton is definitely a nice place. Nicer than Ishpeming, at least, even though that's not saying much. I try to go there at least twice a year to go thrift shopping, lmao. I'm always finding cool shit there.

I do go to NMU, and yeah, coming here was easily the biggest mistake of my life. I love the campus, and the people are nice, but the classes are a joke, and I basically have no reason to be here. I'm only continuing at this point because I'm already in too deep. I should technically have graduated by now, but they recently just came up with this new policy that all English majors are now required to fulfill a fucking minor. I can get the logic behind it, but that still kinda fucks me over. So now I'm scrambling to come up with something, which is just a whole new layer of stress that I couldn't have been prepared for. I'm doing the best I can, though.

Glad you're enjoying college. I can't say that I am, but I'm also aware that things could be way worse. I don't even live on campus (dorms are wayyyyy too expensive) so I have a two hour commute every single day from home, since I can't drive and have to take the bus everywhere. It's not ideal, but if I can avoid having to drive myself, I'll always take that option. I'm just weird like that.

I'm writing a book right now, since being an author has been my life's dream and all, so I take all these unfortunate circumstances as opportunities for inspiration. You tend to meet some interesting characters on the bus, and I have all kinds of stories to tell about them. That's been fun. I hope to get it done soon (it won't be a happy story, though).

Think that's it. I know it probably seems weird that I still post here, but it's not like this website is my life or anything. I'm working as a transcriptionist which allows me to work from home, and I've been going to the gym regularly since August. Life is pretty okay right now, all things considered. Still depressed, but I can ignore that. Video games are cool. Movies are cool too. You should watch the Irishman on Netflix, it's awesome.

anyway yeah thanks for hitting me up randomly, it's good to bullshit about nothing every once in a while

also i hope it was okay for me to join in your raid

i wish the matchmaking system wasnt so jank, so we coulda gotten more teammates
totally fine, any help is appreciated (especially if you're strong)

although that time, i was just trying to see what my kingler's g-max move was gonna be (but then i just got one-shotted)

claydol doesn't even have any HAs or anything, so it's not really worth seriously going for imo

have yall beaten the game yet? i still havent, i spend a lot of time fooling around in the wild area

i dont have a picture, but my team consists of inteleon, boltund, thievul, centiskorch, alcreamie, and sandaconda

the latter 3 cant gigantmax, which i think is REALLY stupid that only some pokemon of a species can gmax

i know it's not the best team ever but i wanted to go in this game blind, rather than know my team beforehand, which i usually do
intelleon? i'm not sure what your name is in-game, but i may have joined a couple of your max raids (my in-game name is J)

i think i'm on the cusp of beating the game, but since i'm playing along with a couple friends, i'm stopping myself from actually beating the game before they catch up

and yeah, the gigantamax thing is definitely stupid as hell—i can only imagine someone going through the whole game with a corviknight or something, training it up from the beginning as a rookidee, only to discover that it'll NEVER be able to achieve its ultimate form, and that if you want to use it, you'll have to catch some other random corviknight that you never grew attached to or give a shit about, because it's not YOUR corviknight

not only that, corviknight has a cool hidden ability, so you might end up finding that gigantamax corviknight, only for it to have something shitty like Unnerve, which you can't do anything about

like i was saying before, it really is the worst

sword/shield's BIGGEST FLAW (mainly gameplay-wise) is how they handled hidden abilities

it's the one thing that they haven't streamlined at this point, which pisses me off because having the wrong ability can render an otherwise competitively viable pokemon completely worthless

meanwhile, as a supporter of this garbage:

here's the team i'm rolling with coming into the endgame

as much as i like galar's new additions, i did kinda just wind up using legacy mons for the entire playthrough, mainly because rain is an insanely fun strategy to build a team around, and i've been desperately trying to make it work again since gen 6 when the weather wars died, but galar hasn't really offered much in the way of rain support as far as i've been able to tell

- i'd prefer to be using a politoed right now, but pelipper is literally the only rain setter available in galar, and i suppose he's objectively better than politoed anyway. i just think it's a boring pokemon design-wise

- raichu synergizes well with pelipper with its 100% accurate thunders and ability to use surf, although she's gonna have to get replaced as soon as i'm able to grind out a lightning rod pikachu in max raid battles (which has been a miserable experience)

- toxicroak is my favorite member; he's very powerful and has fantastic residual recovery with black sludge + dry skin, which also makes him immune to opposing water-type moves (so raichu can spam surf in doubles with no repercussions). sucker punch was nerfed, however, which makes me very sad

- ferrothorn is ferrothorn

- ninjask is only here for baton pass shenanigans; toxicroak is his best friend

- crawdaunt is only here because before buying the game, i used a random number generator to determine a single pokemon that i HAD to include in my team, but otherwise, he's probably the first thing getting replaced once i beat the game

all the galar pokemon i was interested in using don't really have any synergy with rain whatsoever, which is a shame (except for barraskewda, but i don't know if having a barraskewda over a rapid spinner or spinblocker would be intelligent)

I'm still undecided whether to get this. Is it better than sumo? I dont care about dexit.
not sure if it's better than sumo, but i actually loved sumo, whereas i assume you didn't, so idk what to say to that

it's definitely a pokemon game, in the sense that they didn't fuck up the standard gameplay loop, so if that's what you want from the game, you can't really go wrong

in spite of dexit, team-building is extremely fun, fulfilling, and easy this time around, since you have access to all kinds of pokemon + powerful moves early on, and they've added lots of QoL stuff to make life simpler (but not too simple) for competitive people

just don't expect anything outstanding, or for there to be any sense of difficulty if challenge is what you like

there's definitely some dumb/iffy design choices and some embarrassing oversights that make the games feel unpolished in certain areas, but i feel like most of this stuff has been SEVERELY overblown by reddit

the games aren't completely soulless (just look at camping); people just have their minds set on hating them, which is their right, but it's unfortunate, because i think the games are serviceable at the very least

Wait, you think my memes and shit posting comes from a place of hate??? How do you suppose that? I don’t post anything outta hate bro, I shit post cuz that’s all it is, shit posting and memes. Offensive memes because the world is fucked and offensive. Nobody, no matter their ideals, creed, politics or any other affiliation matter. The world is supremely fucked so what’s it matter?

Plus wtf did you forget all the times we chatted? Got dayum :(
if it doesn't matter, then why are you upset

even i know that there's a place for edgy humor, and that not everybody appreciates it
