    Oh goodness, I'm talking to someone and they are trying to say the gen 1 originals are better than the remakes.

    Don't get me wrong, some people obviously prefer the originals over the remakes, and I respect that. But they fixed so much since then. She's trying to argue that psychic types were not overpowered then. I mean, c'mon!

    Also, not sure if I want to get the Black and White sequels... Might not have the money, plus I've kinda lost interest of Pokemon as of late.

    I don't honestly like shinys. They make the Pokemon look off, as opposed to their natural colors. Which is the whole point I guess, but you grow used to their natural look and sort of shut out anything that looks otherwise.

    Some are alright. A select few.

    Also who else here is dissapointed that Vanilluxe's shiny isn't a brown or pinkish white?

    YES.

    I do like Shinies, though.

    Right, managed to get my point across by comparing the remakes to a sort of patch. But now she says I'm contradicting myself because Gen 3 Pokemon appear once you finish the game. But gen 1 had no endgame content to speak of... I'm confused, how come people are so negative towards the newer Pokemon games?

    I think the originals set a nice standard, and gave off a vibe that was not. (For me at-least) captured in the newer ones.

    This I dig, you just prefer them. But I'm sure you can agree that the remakes fixed a lot of problems with the game mechanics and stuff, rather than blindly defend them. Don't see why people do this.

    Edited:

    She dislikes the remakes because they have more endgame content... I don't... What?

    Edited:

    Oh god, I got them defending Muk, saying it's a much better pokemon than Trubbish. That's it, I'm done.

    Just got Pokemon Black yesterday and I've been all over it since. I just beat my first gym leader and am now about to go investigate that dream park place.

    I haven't played Pokemon since Pearl so jumping back in feels pretty awesome.

    My team so far:

    Tepig
    Pansage
    Purrloin
    Lillipup


    Feels good to be playing Pokemon again. Any heads up or tips I should know?

    Except the only evidence of what the original dragon looked like (from Special, of course) shows a Reshiram wing and a Zekrom wing. Ergo, mashup.

    Their tails charge electricity and fire for the exact same reason that Pikachu stores it's electricity in its cheeks.

    Because it's Pokemon.

    I was also referring to the color scheme.

    This is supposed to be the original, not a new fusion. The Kyurem fusions look like what they are: fusions of two Pokemon.

    This original dragon split into these two, so having fusion traits like "it has one of each wing" just seems dumb. Imagine if we got the original first, and then the split up concept came up. I doubt the original would have "dual wings" or some parts black, some parts white.

    That I agree with, they did make a nice improvement, I guess it was just missing that....ah how to say. Original gleam that made it what it was. I kinda felt like the rest were bolt ons. And the style of the Pokemon to me felt very out of place compared to the first gen.

    Lenora (next gym) will be a pain in the ass with that Watchog putting you to sleep all the time. There are Fighting types in the surrounding area, catch one as a backup for your starter. Also, Fighting types will be very useful at the end.

    did I go the easy route with pokemon because I almost never actually level anything but my starter for a while (using the pan__ pokemon as a backup)
    like the second gym was a piece of cake because I had tepigs second evolution with a fighting move so id one-hit everything
    im guessing I was doing that wrong

    I think that applies for most polar opposite pokemon. The nidos, reshi and zek, and so on.

    It has black, white and gray body parts. What do you want for something that split into black, white and a gray husk, lime green polka dots?

    Plus, splitting. Not something completely unrelated in terms of looks, each of the dragons is a part of the original one. And we KNOW it has at least one of each wing, from the only data we have. Makes more sense that having an fully original design for something that split into parts.

    Kyurem is the base of said dragon, the remains, the incomplete body. If it absorbs Reshiram or Zekrom, it is still not fully restored. It needs both, and the original thing most likely will show traits of all three, having black and white all over it.

    And it'll be symetrical. Asymetry is one of the telltale signs of Kyurem's incompleteness.

    something else I've noticed:

    a lot of families of pokemon are atrocious because they're one color for 1 or two evolutions and then just dramatically change for no apparent reason in the final evolution

    Edited:

    also why is almost every green they choose for shiny sprites absolutely atrocious? they're either puke green, this weird desaturated green-brown, or highlighter yellow-green

    What I would say about shinies is that gallade's shiny color is my favorite color(blue).

    So much for my favorite pokemon.


    Infact when I first learned about gallade's stats I was...happy. I wanted to catch one.

    However in diamond and pearl I had no idea how to catch a ralts or kirlia(I didn't know much back then.) So my dreams were shattered.


    So later on I bought Soul Silver, I beat the game and decided to complete the national pokedex.

    I found a dawnstone in soul silver, Not knowing what to do with it I decided to keep it.


    Later on int he week I was listening to the "radio" and heard that there were ralts nearby Route(I don't remember but I think it was in kanto)

    Than I remembered on how to get gallade.


    INSTANTLY I got on my staraptor and flew where the ralts were.

    The first one was a female.

    Around the 3rd one I finally found a male that was a shiny, however not knowing on shiny pokemon, I thought it was it's male color(I was an idiot with pokemon when that game first came out).


    I leveled it up until it evolved into kirlia. Then I leveled it up a bit more, and used my dawn stone and it evolved into a blue gallade.

    I thought that was it's original color, than I learned on shinies.

    To this date I use a different gallade. I don't want to transfer that gallade. But that gallade is my most powerful pokemon to this date.
