  1. 1. Hoenn God, this region was fantastic. My 9 year old self had a ball traveling through this region completely blind and seeing all kinds of new and unexpected things. I really like how it was so diverse, too. From the grass patches under the Cycling Road on Route 110, to the never-ending sandstorm on Route 111, to the calmly descending ash on Route 113, the Battle Frontier...it was just very awesome to explore everything and discover new things. I still remember calling my friend over the phone on school nights as we tried to decipher the mystery of the Regis. Why can't Pokemon games do that anymore? Man, it was fun. I might be blinded by nostalgia, but shit, Hoenn was fantastic. The only annoying things about this region? ...Not the surf routes. I could deal with surfing all over the place (but fuck you Wailord), but I could not deal with Routes 132, 133, or 134. Holy shit. Being a completionist at heart, flying back to Pacifidlog Town and having to battle evey trainer and get every item and get to the Sealed Chamber was always a nightmare. Also the only ice area in the game was in the Shoal Cave, and that was only on certain days. I like my ice areas. :< 2. Kalos Just want to say that the various Pokedexes this region had was brilliant. I'm at about 506 Pokemon registered in total in my National Dex, and there are still many Pokemon I have to find in all the dexes. The exploration feel is very fun. As for the region itself, I like how everything is close together like it was in Unova (though they did it better here), and like Hoenn, the locations and features of this region were very diverse. I question the huge gap between the first two gyms, though. I didn't expect for it to take a while to fight Grant, but alas. Maybe a 3rd game in the series will improve this, but Kiloude City being the postgame...Friend Safaris and the Battle Maison were awesome, but there has to be more to this region then that. :t 3. Sinnoh I personally really liked Sinnoh. I really did. I like how you just had to complete the Sinnoh Dex to enjoy the postgame to its full extent, and the game made sure that you'd encounter all 210 Pokemon in the region. I also liked how Mt. Coronet seemed to split the region in half, and thought the idea of differently colored Shellos/Gastrodon was creative. And the Distortion World as a whole was a very cool area and something I haven't seen in a Pokemon game until then. What I didn't like? Saving a lot of data... Platinum improved on Diamond and Pearl's flaws, but the region still felt...slow. I 'unno, it might just be me. Also being pretty much forced to use Rapidash in D/P if you didn't pick Chimchar was an odd decision. Flint's team was hilarious, though! The Battle Frontier could've been better, too, but it's hard to have one that compares to Emerald's. Maybe the 3rd Kalos game can whip something up, then again...OR/AS might (they better) bring back Emerald's Battle Frontier...we'll see. 4. Kanto Interesting region. I like how the games gave you a little freedom in R/B/Y/FR/LG after beating Misty, because then you could fight Lt. Surge, Erika (almost typed Eirika, haha. I've been playing too much FE8), Koga, and Sabrina in any order, and then the Sevii Islands were added in the remakes (but then taken out of HG/SS grrr. I liked the Sevii Islands.). And compared to Johto, exploring Kanto AGAIN was way more interesting to me, and the tough trainers were everywhere and made things hectic. But Kanto didn't have the features that I liked seeing in Hoenn, Kalos, and Sinnoh. Sure it was fun to explore, but it didn't really have any noteworthy areas or landmarks (Lavender Town's theme aside). 5. Unova Playing through White was fun. Playing through Black 2 was even more fun. I really liked the plot of Black 2, for some reason, because I felt that the player character didn't really pay too much attention to badges, but helping their friend/rival stop the remnants of Team Plasma once and for all. And I liked how we could get Pokemon from generations I through IV again (lol Huge Power Azurills before the first gym). But there was nothing particularly interesting about this region that blew me away, so to speak. It just felt like, "Okay, this is here. Good to know. Moving on now to the next part of Unova and never coming here ever again." I mean, Twist Mountain seemed cool. Shame I got through it as fast as I could in White and never even visited it in Black 2 due to not giving a shit. Yeah, Black 2/White 2 had among the best postgames in the series, but there just wasn't really anything memorable about Unova. Didn't help that X/Y were announced and made everyone forget about B2/W2 in an instant. 6. Johto I like how in the manga, Gold didn't really care about gym badges. He cared about hunting Silver down and taking back Totodile for Professor Elm. He made several friendships and rivalries in the region, and going through Johto was an amazing adventure for him. Didn't...really feel that way to me. Sure, it's fun, because POKEMON, but... Johto felt so cramped. I just now realized this. Now, the Johto+Kanto combination made for quite an adventure, but Johto by itself is...not so great, in all honesty. There weren't many noteworthy places in the region (Ruins of Alph puzzles were fun, though), the level curve was pretty bad, the Victory Road was barren (Silver you fucker let me fight the trainers), and I feel Kanto blew it out of the water, as well as every other region. Yeah, they added a Safari Zone as well as Routes 47 and 48, but...that's it? I think that Whitney's Miltank is remembered more than the region itself.
  2. Currently on Cog of Destiny. Doing a random lords/axes/bows/healers only run. Still one of the most amazing things ever.
  3. so um I'm up at 3 AM and uh this account is 4 years old I know a lot has happened and I'm not too keen on this forum anymore, but this site really has changed my life. I met quite a few memorable and amazing people, and I'm fortunate to have gotten to known them. You guys rock. I don't know how my life would've been if I didn't decide to join SF, but let's not think about that. Cheers.
  4. February 19 ^_^ now I won't forget about it!

    ORAS Metagame

    Now that OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire has been out and we got amazing new megas (that aren't Steelix/Pidgeot/Audino): 1. Gunk Shot was a godsend to Greninja. Even with an uninvested Attack stat with a reducing nature, with Gunk Shot, it still 1HKOs Mega Gardevoir and 2HKOs other OU fairies such as Azumarill and Togekiss. That's the power of Protean on a mon with very good stats. Geez. 2. Pangoro got a lot of nifty tools. Knock Off specifically. It's quite a force to be reckoned with in the lower tiers, and might even be viable in OU. 3. Adaptability Dragalge's Draco Meteors hit harder than Latios's with a Life Orb. Yeah, the thing's a nuke. It's also even more viable than it was in the higher tiers. 4. Mega Salamence was guaranteed to be quickbanned. Amazing ability, amazing movepool which means it can run various sets, amazing bulk (especially if base form is running Intimidate), and it's overall just crazy good. It was pretty much guaranteed to get the boot. 5. Who says Mega Slowbro didn't need Shell Armor? With that in conjunction with amazing defensive bulk, Calm Mind, and/or Amnesia, you have yourself a crazy good wall. After a few setups, it becomes incredibly tough to take down. Commence discussion.
  8. Just reading through the script again makes me want to play again. Seriously, the NoA translation team did a fantastic job with this one. Quotes like these just amaze me (Ashnard vs. Reyson): And the game also did such an amazing job that even the enemy soldiers are sympathized with:
  9. Yoyo. So I mapped out my college schedule, and I have plenty of free time inbetween my classes, most notably Tuesday and Thursday (for Tuesday, I just have one class in the morning, and then one in the evening). Does, erm, most of that time lean toward studying? I don't mind that, I'm just curious.
  10. a simpler time =_= shoutouts to FE9 and the DS FEs, you guys were great as well FE4/FE5 too *cries*
  12. In about an hour I'll leave for my high school graduation. Should be enjoyable. ^^ Here's me: Woohoo?
  13. Alright, where to start. I've been contemplating in school today about how to do this thread while my precalculus homework sat abandoned on my desk. I was thinking about going in-depth about the series, but if you want that, then go here: http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Touhou_Wiki Instead I'm going to talk about misconceptions I've been seeing about the series here on SF, since what I usually see being reactions to Touhou here are: "ew lolis", "2hu sux", "weeb bait", etc. Now, I don't think that some members of fanbase here do it any justice and only dig a deeper grave for themselves, but I might delve into that later. Anyway, Touhou Project is a series owned by ZUN with games created by Shanghai Alice. The vast majority of the official games (14 in total) are vertical shooters. They are popular shumps, and it isn't uncommon to see people say "omg i can't do that shit you must be god" when they see something like this: [spoiler=PCB Lunatic Stage 6] There are four difficulties in total: Easy, Normal, Hard, Lunatic. The higher you climb, the harder things will be. There are also difficulties such as Extra, Phantasm (PCB only), Last Word (IN only), and Overdrive (TD only), but the main four that I listed are the ones I'm mainly referring to. The series is also quite well known due to the fact that most of the cast are female. Cool beans, huh? I guess so. So how did something as simple as this get so popular? Well, the music played a huge role and it isn't hard to find various music remixes on YouTube. As said before, the large cast of females (currently 130) also plays a role. Though due to ZUN's drawing style not being the greatest: [spoiler=Remilia's OA from EoSD] Fans have taken the liberty to draw the characters with how they perceive them: [spoiler=Remilia fan art] Over the years, the designs have been pretty much accepted as a whole (and it helps that the fighters + GFW have had some characters with pretty rad designs via Alphes). Now, the Touhou fandom is quite infamous for things relating to the things I listed above. A lot of those who play on Lunatic tend to be rather elitist, viewing anyone that plays on the lower difficulties as inferior. That sure doesn't make them look good. Then there are people who are just in the series for the girls, which I've seen piss off many fans. IMO, if you're going to join the series just to gawk at fan art, then you better also play the games or do something else related. That right there is probably my biggest pet peeve regarding Touhou and most of the reason why I'm even making this thread. Seriously, the series isn't that hard to get into. There are official doujin works you can read, hundreds of fangames created you can play, the fighters you can play, the music remixes you can enjoy, lore you can research, etc. tl;dr: Touhou Project is great. I wish that the fanbase didn't make it as infamous as it is. There are tons of things to do in the series, so find something and stick with it instead of just being in it for the 'waifu business'. I guess that's that. EDIT: there's also this: [spoiler=video of stuff] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7lHJXPKoX0
  14. During the peace period, I turned around to shake the hands of the people behind me, and the guy tried to ignore me as he shook hands with everyone near him that wasn't black like I am. He eventually shook my hand, but withdrew his hand as fast as he could. Then during communion, he made the girl who was sitting next to him go in front of him so he wouldn't have to stand directly behind my dad. Maybe I'm looking too much into this? idk I'm kinda disturbed.
  15. lol here's a level 18 Taillow with Sky Attack before the first gym have fun I hope this feature comes back <3
  16. looks like you have some competition John oi
  17. yeeeeeeaaaaah boi College applications are a success. And my ACT score is impressive enough for me to get into all the schools in and around my state I want to apply to. whoo hoo
  18. I just got sent ANOTHER code from Nintendo for the ORAS demo I've had for a week now, and I keep seeing people scramble around to get codes. I also have an additional code from posting in a thread on GFAQs and getting a free one from the TC. If anyone would like a code, just ask. I have two.

    Pokemon NU

    Ah, NU. Full of underwhelming mons, but also arguably has the most variety out of the Smogon tiers. I'm making this topic because I'm curious if anyone has interest in making an NU team and maybe a group of us can have battles in X/Y and Showdowns in this tier. Any interest?
  20. What are your thoughts on how the Kalos Pokémon, and old blokes like Azumarill who got some new tools to utilize, will work out in the X/Y metagame? Talonflame I feel is definitely OU material. Gale Wings is just too amazing with priority Roost/Acrobatics/Brave Bird, and it helps that it also has Flare Blitz access as well as Bulk Up/Swords Dance. Stealth Rock blows, but at least it can Roost it off. Slurpuff is hilarious. Unburden + Sitrus Berry + Belly Drum is quite the combination. Though other than that hilarity, I think it'll be NU or RU. Contrary Malamar and Superpower, along with its awesome Dark/Psychic typing is definitely UU material. I'd list more, but I'm tired.
  21. So PU was established in the metagame now. It resides under NU and consists of the mons with the lowest usage from that tier. It's pretty crazy to see what happens there. Killer butterflies, for example: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/pu-164025110
  22. Oh joy. I have until the end of the month to get this all done, I have to talk to my most trusted teachers at school for recommendations, my parents are on my ass about all this, and I'm rather exhausted and worried. ...Thankfully I know things will turn out fine in the end. *works on application*
  23. I had this idea when I was walking over to the library. Since there are many drafts of various FE games, why not have a conpetition of just one Touhou game? It'd be fun to handle, and since it's my favorite Touhou game, fun for me to observe. Without further ado: Rules: 1. This competition will be solely in UFO, and the participants taking part in the draft are to showcase their skills in said game. 2. Participants are to use every shot-type in the following order: ReimuA, ReimuB, MarisaA, MarisaB, SanaeA, SanaeB. There will be a round for every shot-type that will last one week. 3. You may choose any difficulty you like: Easy, Normal, Hard, Lunatic. It's meant to be for fun! 4. Clearing the game gives you three points. First place gets five points, second place gets three points, third place gets one point, and last plac gets no points. 5. Going through the Extra Stage will net you five bonus points. ReimuA Results ReimuB Results MarisaA Results MarisaB Results SanaeA Results SanaeB Results Final Ranking: 1st: Proto: 40 2nd: Balcerzak: 39 3rd: Fera: 26 4th: Zak: 3
