Wrong forum, moved :)

My opinion's here:

Especially when you realize the Pokémon is basically dogfighting. People carry animals around in tiny cages (Pokéballs), call them out at will to pit them against each other, and collect money for winning.

I think Ash's Pikachu understood this by hating being in a Pokéball.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

The only real pokemon I actually play is probably Blue Version, and by definition my pokemon look like I beat them with an ugly stick; hard to keep close what looks like a monster that wants to kill you.  I also don't have much affection for data allocations in 64 byte denominations stored on my cartridge, so I just chose "FOOD!!!"

Ya I guess Pokemonz are my partner. I wish Pokemon games would let you have your Pokemon as friends or partners or family (or FOOD O.o) instead of just creatures that battle.

Agreed, but I'm not sure that it's exactly 64 bytes.

Well, in Generation I, the base stats data is 28 bytes, the data for a Pokemon not in the PC is 44 bytes, and the limit on names should be 10 letters, so I'm estimating 92-94, depending on whether or not they pad the nickname and OT name with a terminator.

I do love Bulbapedia.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

yeah same thing. They need to make a second path where u could choose another career such as breeder, coordinator, etc.

Pokemon Ranger i suppose is something like that.

I find Pokemon to be my friends.

I don't catch tons and neglect them, but I choose to train the ones I do catch really well, and I often do things to increase their happiness, and don't often give them bitter medicines. Thus, they like me in return.
