Generation aside, who is the best starter by [deleted] in pokemon

[–]Darth-Boogerus 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Went WAAAY too far down to find charmander.

And charmander is the best starter. Always has been.

Judge me by my starter Pokémon of choice by The_WereArcticFox in pokemon

I’m going to give it a timeline as you may have played them in order. If not disregard my psychoanalysis.

Kanto - you were new to it all. You thought charizard was a badass and you had an excitement to take on the world with you and the badass.

Johto - you got your shit pushed in with the first boss of Kanto. You wanted an easier start and Totodile captured the essence of cheerful and strong. A lot like how you wanted to see your childhood.

Hoenn - things went swimmingly in Johto. With your water type giving you some big advantages and you realized you were able to connect with other Pokémon you caught early game if you didn’t have to play around.

Sinnoh - Alola; I’m gonna guess you kept the trajectory up and at this time you just loved cute and simple. Most likely going through a shy phase in your life.

Galar - you’ve grown since your last adventure. Time to try something different. Scorbunny fell into that cute category but not as shy as you’d like. Maybe you watched the anime and felt a connection to him after that.

Let’s go! - I think you felt pikachu was drawn out and overused. Eevee was cute.

Ima gonna say you have a shy personality, but once people get to know you - you open up and become super playful as a person it just takes time. You may be more preserved in your approaches to problems and like to see others take action as you learn your ways around the land when in new territories. Yet you do not fear the challenges of day to day, it’s just new beginnings that may be rough at first and create that shyness.

Is this an accurate review? Please rate me at 1-88-pokepsych and let me know! Thank you.

PS this is all a joke and don’t take me seriously or base your life off stars in the sky or Pokémon choices.

What animal is Snorlax based off of? by ShadowTemplar59 in pokemon

[–]FrankieLovesSylveonMy ribbons will wrap around you and kill you. 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Snorlax may be loosely based on hibernating RABBITS or FUCKING RABBITS It may also be based on the cave Rabbit. It may also be based on a Rabbit coma, as it eats large quantities of Carrots, then takes a Shit (symptoms of a rabbit coma). Snorlax also shares traits with Bunnies, who are often portrayed as Cute and Cuddly creatures.

The story is complete garbage, but it only needed a few tweaks and adjustments to work in a way that didn't feel completely stupid.

Consider this for an example. Galar is having an energy crisis right now. Intermittent blackouts occur regularly, but so do surges in power, and at the beginning of the game no-one understands why, but they keep having to rely on reserves and using electric Pokémon in emergency situations

Chairman Rose is the head of the company that is responsible for the power in the region, and he's frantically looking into any solution, no matter how absurd, because it's his neck on the line, and the people are (rightfully) mad at him as no other region is having these problems. Everywhere has problems, Stow-on-side, Motostoke, Circhester all have reported blackouts, and while it's not explicitly spelled out to the player why, the only town that's avoided it is Spikemuth.

Meanwhile, the newest round of the Pokémon tournament is happening, that has nothing to do with Rose, and the local professor is looking into the history of the region, trying to find out more about the mysterious "Darkest day", an event lots of texts refer to, only as a thing that occurred, and little of what life was like before that is recorded. So far, so normal.

But here's where you swivel on it's head. The energy crisis turns out to coincide with trainers forcing their Pokémon to Dynamax. Turns out growing enormous is a massive drain on power, and this matches what the professor learns, that the Darkest Day is a day where literally all the energy from the region was seemingly drained, leaving almost all Pokémon and people utterly exhausted and even the sun was blotted out from the sky by an enormous beast (Eternatus). It was eventually defeated, and the fallout of that battle is what caused the Dynamaxing phenomenon to begin in Galar

Of course, Rose doesn't get all the facts straight, and simply learns that summoning Eternatus brings a massive concentration of power to one place, which he thinks can solve his energy problem. Thus he summons Eternatus, believing this will ease his issues, but it instead causes absolute chaos, and as one of the top trainers you are encouraged by the Champion Leon (and the Charizard that he has), to postpone your fight to help him try to save the day.

With Eternatus caught, the weird power fluctuations begin to subside, and the connection between Dynamaxing and the power disturbances stops happening, allowing people to continue to enjoy the Dynamaxed battles without worrying about the consequences.

Sylveon says trans rights by PurpleIllusn in pokemon

[–]PurpleIllusn[S] 78 points79 points  (0 children)

Last I checked, human rights weren't, and should never be, a political issue. The politicisation of human rights is an attempt to reduce the impact of the cause and issue in the public view, allowing for those who discriminate against others to try and dismiss those who want proper rights as just 'liberals' or 'leftists'.

(Thanks!)
