I don't think you understand what Tay actually was.

Wasn't TayTweets basically just a markov chain? That's on the same level as the predictive text in your phone's keyboard, not sentience.

How dumb do you have to be to think a program made to mimic teenagers is alive.

i've made numerous attempts at completing a living dex in the past, but when you start obliging me to move my ass over to a gamestop several hours away to ask some snotty apathetic employee for a fucking magearna or whatever the fuck, just to drive all the way back because i'm not getting literally anything else, you are asking WAY too much of me
Most event pokemon were pretty low effort. I don't have Magearna because it's a sun/moon one but the others weren't too bad. Almost all of the events were online (just connect to wi-fi and go to mystery gift) and the few that weren't just required you to connect to the network of a game store. Which still isn't great but you don't have to interact with anyone. And there's always the trading network if you're looking to fill in the gaps.

All done: completed the Living Dex with my girlfriend this weekend. I now have a save file with every single pokemon organized numerically. Includes every form of every evolutionary line (so not just getting a charmandar and evolving it into charizard, but having an individual charmander, charmeleon and charizard) as well as all the legendary / mythical / event pokemon #1-721 (including the likes of Volcanion, Meloetta, Genesect...). All obtained legit, got maybe 1 or 2 through online trades (if any at all). Also includes around 150+ shiny pokemon. A bunch of them are fakes gotten through (wonder)trades but dozens of them are as legit as can be.
congratulations

it doesn't count unless they all have competitive builds, though
Damn. Failed again. Some have competitive builds (even trained some 6 IV Dratinis with good moves and stuff like that) but don't care too much about the battling side of things.

After a constant "what do I do now" I decided to backtrack to Brinstar since I remembered about the enemies that I can freeze and turn into platforms to jump to places I couldn't get before.

I went through some unexplored rooms and eventually found the power bomb. Now it seems like I can progress further now in places where I got stuck.

Sun and Moon definitely improved some things (HMs being incorporated in the pokemon ranger riding thing rather than having to use a pokemon's slot for the move, the real-time map...) but others are really downgrades. The call for help mechanic is fun for the totems but can be really obnoxious otherwise. The Z moves are pretty lame (since you have to make a pokemon hold the item for it), take forever and are just dumb to the point that I've only used a single one in the 15 hours I've played. It's also stupid to play against. Pokemon gym girl switches to her final pokemon, goes first with the Z move and kills one of mine who was almost at full health despite the move not being very effective. It's dumb. Also, there's several points in the game where it feels lame that your pokemon aren't healed automatically. Of course, you don't want the game to be easy and there shouldn't just be free heals in between trainers or endurance sections of the game, but it's happened a few times that I beat a major trainer (who's friendly) close to a pokemon center, carried on assuming my pokemon would've been healed because there was no reason for them not to be, and then discovered that I had to go take a 2 minute detour to a pokemon center.

Just the little things, you know?

i tried doing that in my white game, but it just got too confusing and all over the place

then i tried again with y but yet again i failed

at least i finished the whole pokedex in y, so im happy about that
It helps a lot if you organize your boxes numerically. Your first box becomes 1-30 to house the first few dozen (starting with bulbasaur, ivysaur...), box two becomes 31-60 and so on. Makes it easy to keep an overview of the pokemon you have and to fill in the gaps. I'll post a pic or two of mine in a bit.

you seemed smarter than me when I met you

acquiring sentience IS sentience, is a baby not a person because it's not fully formed lol?
