Title: Pokemon thread
Post by: crackers on October 21, 2015 08:20 AM
Hey guys, had a quick search of the forums and I was surprised there was no thread for this, considering you're all autistic manchildren it's such a popular game

after like 2 years since playing religiously I picked up the new games, they're pretty good, so if anyone wants to trade/battle drop your friend codes below or something idk

didn't we all exchange friend codes in a different thread

anyway i haven't played pogeymans in a while because i was too lazy to tansfer my items from X/Y to OR/AS. but if you have 6 mule pokemon to help me transfer items then we can do a battle or something afterwards.

there is a wii/3ds friend code thread (http://www.thebackalleys.com/forum/entertainment/wii-u-3ds-friend-codes!/) that is pinned. idk if friend codes are retroactive i don't play any nintendo stuff

Yeah.

My 3DS friend code is 5129-2508-2545.

I'm currently somewhat rusty at Pokémon, and only own X and don't have any intentions of getting OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire in the foreseeable future. With that in mind, I'd also like to test my capacity to use my [PokéGen] to create ‘legit’ Pokémon before I start doing it in exchange for favours. So I'm offering free Pokémon to your specifications at the moment. Limited time offer, and I'm feeling generous currently, so I advise you take advantage promptly if this is something up your alley, honey. How splendid.

I was thinking about it recently.

Does anyone else think Pokemon was so successful/has endured so long because it's basically a synecdoche for capitalism.

I think all JRPGs are crypto-capitalist to a degree, but with Pokemon the capitalist ideology is baked right into the crust.

I mean the tagline is "Gotta catch 'em all," which is of course the objective of the game but is also a subliminal message to hoard Pokemon i.e. Pokemon merchandise i.e. material possessions.

In pretty much every JRPG you earn money through "grinding" which is pretty much wage slavery.

Just throwing that out there.

A lot of newer videogame genres I think could be interpreted as having analogy in a mode of living in a capitalist country.

Survival horror and stealth games (until MGSV) obviously simulates impoverishment, or the impoverished trying to survive in a world ruled by capitalists (See: the estate in Resident Evil 1, the police station in 2, the Ashford compound in Code: Veronica, the military industrial complex/hyperreality in MGS), while games like Silent Hill and Fatal Frame typically convey the decay of of idyllic capitalist locales (in SH's case) or the unwelcome return of old world entities (in both cases).

Games like Animal Crossing and the Sims typically illustrate the bourgeois concept of social mobility. Shooters probably fall somewhere between here and the last category.

I think that leaves most RPGs, RTS games and god simulators for the ruling class. In RPGs you typically start out as an everyman who journeys into the untamed wild to earn his/her fortune and "save the world" (see: the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, the Carnegies, the Hearsts, etc.) who after a few quests learn that they are "the Chosen" and then proceed to topple whatever questionably evil force was until then holding the world together (the aristocracy, the government, God, etc.). The connection other two genres is more obvious.

Party on.

Title: Re: Pokemon thread
Post by: SrsSam77 on October 26, 2015 12:13 AM
well yeah no shit, video games allow you to feel like you actually accomplish something, even if those achievements matter or not; everyone wants to be the hero, but in the real world, not everyone can.
Also there's some wierd psychofuckery about getting achievements and doing things in games that's responsible for the success microtransactions and MMO/moba madness.

Good video for this:

Sorry guys, I've been a little busy, and I didn't expect this thread to garner much activity at all.

I STILL haven't finished X version.


I really didn't like X at all. I much preferred ORAS, but I really did enjoy the cosmetic aspects of X, the whole changing your trainer's outfit was really cool.

I do indeed, if I'm on irc in the near future I'll drop you a message, that'd be cool.

Thank you very much for the offer, but I've basically completed my dex (outside of illegal events), and I've bred everything I need for a competitive team, outside of a few, which I plan to do later in the year.

Yeah, entirely true. Nintendo softens the blow a little by making it easy for you to transfer pokemon from game to game, so it feels like more of a long-term commitment. I still have my original starter from R/S/E that I recently ported on to ORAS, it's pretty nostalgic.

I really didn't like X at all. I much preferred ORAS, but I really did enjoy the cosmetic aspects of X, the whole changing your trainer's outfit was really cool.
This was honestly a critical thing for me though. I've always hated spending money on consumables (true of every RPG ever), and what I'd started doing was saving up as usual and then spending all my money on all the clothes in the world. Not being able to do so in AS/OR was a huge turn-off for me. And not being able to change your character's skin colour any more definitely seemed like a weird move.
Also I was kind of getting out of Pokémon a bit in time for Ruby and Sapphire in an attempt to be cooler going into secondary school, so the nostalgia trip isn't as effective for me as HG/SS.
Alsoalso I'm morally offended that for the first time they have the ability to update the older games in the same generation to make the two sets completely compatible but instead aren't because they want us to buy new games from them to complete the Pokédex and be able to play with friends. They don't have an excuse this time apart from ‘Yeahhhhh, buddy, we want all your money, honey bunny.’
So pretty much like normal then and I don't know what I was expecting, but hell if it doesn't grind my gears.

My 3DS friend code is 5129-2508-2545.

I'm currently somewhat rusty at Pokémon, and only own X and don't have any intentions of getting OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire in the foreseeable future.

Thank you very much for the offer, but I've basically completed my dex (outside of illegal events), and I've bred everything I need for a competitive team, outside of a few, which I plan to do later in the year.
Sure thing. Breeding is a lot more satisfactory, that's for sure. I just know that many people don't care to spend so much time on it. I myself gave up on breeding for a long while after my brother reset my Pokémon Black game containing a number of bred Pokémon including my specific Hidden Power Porygon-Z, and also my favourite individual instance of my favourite individual Pokémon.

Actually, I'd love to borrow as many event Pokémon as possible, with slight preference for event-exclusive legendaries. By ‘borrow’ I mean leave the trade, come back an hour later or whenever suits, then trade everything back to you.

And since it's nearly Halloween. Who's your favorite ghost type?
Quote from: some peeps
[some preferences]
I am a big fan of both Frosslass and Sableye. Frosslass just looks super nifty and I used as a special sweeper with Density Bond (sic). It was like an inefficient Gengar or something and I loved it.

I was annoyed when Spiritomb stole Sableye's thing, and then I was annoyed when Fairies fucked with Sableye's thing, and then I was annoyed when Mega Sableye was due a new ability and didn't get his thing back.

Litwick's cute and reminded me of Candlemon, whose name I am annoyed I had to look up and also I find stupid. I used to hate Chandelure for the same reason that I hate Vanillux in that it's just an already existing item with a face on it. In Chandelure's case, the face wasn't particularly stupid and I guess I gave it a pass for being a Ghost because it could literally have possessed a chandelier I suppose.

My favourite Ghost and all-time favourite Pokémon:

Haha, breeding for hidden powers is a bitch. Iirc I only bred a HP fire Greninja, and even then that was annoying because that requires a 30IV in speed, ugh. I did like how much easier it was to breed perfect IV (and shiny!) mons aswell this gen. Still proud of my Flawless shiny Magby with Barrier/Belch/Cross Chop, what a breed

I found that I actually enjoy Pokémon when I stopped giving a shit about the IVs and shit like that. I will still breed for hidden though as some of those are pretty fun to use (like magma armor). I did finish my shiny Larvesta through breeding by sheer chance though and only after 2 eggs.
Title: Re: Pokemon thread
Post by: Stu4U on October 30, 2015 12:46 AM
the only shiny i ever got was a tentacool random encounter from sapphire, the gba sapphire.

i don't give any shits about shinies anyway. and whenever i see people with a full team of shinies all i can imagine is the hours spent for just getting one of them since the odds for breeding for them is abysmal.

breeding in general is hell. i only breed for hidden abilities, but now that you can 'chain' for hidden abilities in OR/AS i never breed anymore unless the pokemon i have has a bad nature.

the long awaited fire/water type, cool, bet it'll be wholly underwhelming

I stopped playing Pokemon after Crystal so I'm afraid to ask how many they're up to now.

Just so long as you're well aware that the latest generation(s) are a load of crap and Pokémon stopped being good after [insert a generation here], you're good.

Me? Why, never have I ever. At least, I hadn't thought so.
Here, I'll do an update post, so that you can differentiate… from the shit.

Since the last Pokémon-related post in this thread, there have been many announcements that everybody who's interested in Pokémon already know. It's the all-new adventure you've been waiting for:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kn25hijDL7c (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kn25hijDL7c)

As of yet, the 5 Pokémon shown in this video are the only new ones revealed.
The male protagonist is shown at different points in the video wearing two different variations on the colours of his clothes, so possibly the character customisation will be coming back. On one hand, people did like it very much; on the other, that was supposedly a Kalos-specific thing, and Game Freak doesn't give a fuck and does what it wants.

Zygarde's new formes[1] (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Zygarde_%28Pok%C3%A9mon%29) which have already made a showing in the anime will presumably be in the game, at least in code. I anticipate they'll pull out Pokémon Z in this coming generation just because nobody would see that coming. Then, if they do, I'll link back to this post and post a reactiongif.mov.

Zygarde's also taken precedence in the TGC expansion which I won't especially get into because I seriously doubt anybody cares.

Nice thread by the way. Entirely beyond reproach.
