    an issue with the design of the female characters is one (perfectly valid) thing

    but imaging that the thought of people taking something and making porn out of it has any weight in any design process ever is pretty ridiculous

    and also has nothing to do with renamon?

    edit oh renamon porn was a big thing? what a weird thing to be concerned about at all

    edit edit took out the doubly unnecessary snark but still I can't think of a reason to give any real thought to people drawing porn of a thing

    To be clear, I don't think the two share a lot of specific design things. But a certain contingent of people on the Internet latched on to Renamon as almost a mascot and that's what I see happening here. I agree with folks that this probably had no impact on the design process, but the quality is still there...

    I was so baffled by Gardevoir porn for a while because I thought it didn't have legs. Turns out it does.

    Oh and before I come off as insensitive (probably too late there), I've got no specific beef with any particular group of people, but there are things I've seen that I don't like being reminded of there. Really it's a personal problem more than anything.

    Did you really think it not having legs would have stopped the almighty rule 34?

    Man, now I want MegaDragonair to be a thing.

    Nope, just like 6 inches taller. couple pounds heavier. maybe it has a second horn.

    Also as for fire starter: bit more witch then i was hoping for, and i'm not crazy about the ear hair. will have to see how the grass guy turns out.

    See, now I do believe they couldn't possibly have made Gardevoir (and Lopunny) without knowing exactly what they were doing.

    I'm not concerned, just saying it's a thing that will happen. I absolutely think the developers shouldn't (and honestly don't I think) give a crap about what weird fan-art gets made.

    The ear hair is not super great, but I like the robe because it could go witch or wizard depending on what you want to see

    yeah, but i was hoping for like sailor moon or something. oh well.

    Still probably going to pick the fire starter unless the grass guy turns out amazing. i'm hoping for something like Siegmeyer of Catarina .

  • Moth 13Moth 13 Volcaregular Registered User regular
    Ehh, people who turn this stuff into porn don't need an excuse. When the developers design the pokemon, they're not designing with that audience in mind.

    A lot of the human girls, on the other hand (elesa, cynthia, the various female protagonists)...they probably knew exactly what they were doing.

    I can see Elesa, but Cynthia?

    The hardest part about choosing my team now is deciding whether to give the Mega Stone to Charizard or Ampharos.

    Because I love them both.

    the worst starters are the gen 3 starters.

  • AntimatterAntimatter Registered User regular
    gen 3 starters are leagues better than gen 6 and certain ones are probably better than 4 or 5

  • StiltsStilts Registered User regular
    Gen 3 has Blaziken, so it ain't all bad.

    Gen 1 and 4 are great.

    And Gen 2 has both Cyndaquil and Totodile, who make up for Chikorita.

    the only gen 3 starter that might hold a candle to gen 4 or 5 is blaziken because it is a fiery kung fu rooster, or possibly Grovyle (but not sceptile)

    I can't really speak on the gen 5 starts because i skipped gen 5, but I need to see the rest of the final forms before judgment can be made for gen 6.

    also all the gen 4 starts are pretty rad. you got metal emperor penguin, island turtle, and, iunno, but i actually ended up really like Infernape.

    I really love Torterra, you guys.

    It's just so cool.

    Gen 4 is the only game where I didn't choose a fire-type starter.

    yeah, same here. saw turtwig and was like "yeah, yeah alright, i'm down with this i think" and then saw torterra and was like "this isn't even a choice anymore."

    I initially favored Fennekin and wasn't fond of Froakie. Their evolutions reversed my opinion entirely (although Froakie has yet to stick the landing). I continue to be ambivalent to the grass type per us

    Torterra is awesome, but it unfortunately existed in a game with Sten from Breath of Fire and a goddamn Emperor penguin. In a game that was barely compelling enough to play once

    Another quick question, how many Pokémon can you have with you for these games?

    I'M NOT FINISHED WITH YOU!!!
  • Alucard6986Alucard6986 Registered User regular
    6

    though you might waste a slot on hm slaves...hms are abilities you need to get past metroidish barriers, like surf or fly or cut.
