The creator of the stream said he would be modifying the Safari Zone in some way (I would assume he is disabling the step counter)

Perhaps we're "not the one" is the ghost girl saying we aren't actually the PC in this game and we're just one of the many NPC's out there. Interesting. So your theory suggests the scene is unnerving in an existential way, too.
Does anyone know if she said anything different in the Japanese version?
What if it's related to some sort of Hoopa event? :O

People have come up with a lot of theories about her but personally I just think shes a creepy easter egg like the ghosts/eyes painting from the Old Chateau. Some of those theories I find interesting though.

I'm going to regret this:
I do sorta agree with #4 (not the math part).
I reckon people take Pokemon way to seriously but that isn't classified as creepy.

He's also wrong that the equation he provides is how an "individual value" is calculated, that's how the total stat is calculated, IV is in the fucking equation. Of course if anyone told the author this he'd probably just take it as evidence of how right he is. Also the second chart has no labels. It took me a little bit of time to figure out that the top number was total stat and the bottom number was IV.

#4. Players Became Obsessed With Math
Obsessed with math? Other than the people who are probably already interested in math and programming and made our online calculators, most other people probably have a very superficial understanding since all they need to know is how to punch numbers in a calculator.
And everything else? Simple math. Not that hard to know a +6 increase in a stat is x4. #3. It Secretly Got Dark
It's as dark as it ever was. Do they not remember Haunter's dex entry? Or Gengar? Or Cubone? Or the entirety of Lavender Town? I'm fairly certain those mediums were possessed. Sure, other generations had ghosts, but nothing beats an entire tower full of mediums possessed by the spirits of restless Pokemon. #1. The Really Hardcore Fans Became Perverts
So that obsessive fan you knew, the one who was a little weird but always happy to give you tips? He's probably masturbating to his Pokemon as you read this.
I wonder if the author speaks from experience.
The thing about Cracked is that some writers are absolutely shit (like the one that wrote this and that other Yuugiou article), while the other half knows what they're talking about and write entertaining articles.

But it's like the author thinks that every male over the age of 20 that plays Pokémon passionately is like that. I'm surprised he didn't go with the "still lives with his parents" stereotype.
Number 1 showed a picture of Iris being afraid of Vanillite, but nowhere did that article mention the Watchog guy or her reaction to him winking at her. 9.9

I really like the XY anime. I think it has lots of potential. I really think Clemont's a cool guy and Bonnie won't be that bad. Serena will be a very nice character. She might become my #2 Pokegirl after May. I am not surprised Serena chose Fennekin as her starter seeing how Serena is a fashion freak. Also, I would love to see May again with a mega Blaziken, Mega Venusaur, & Mega Blastoise.
I guess reason why people complain so much about Ash, but other characters too in this show never aging is because influenced by other anime out there which contain time skips or visual progression of character not staying excluded out of time passage wants to see same thing happening in pokemon and its protagonists too.
They want to see Ash aging to better go in correlation with amount of growth he experienced, various buzmps and stages he passed in his life adding fior credible, more believable story which leads somewhere. Siunce it was more than once implied or even stated how months, even years has passed since day one Ash started his journey, though it was never specified how many.
Which i wouldn't mind if it was done in small proportions like having him age by 2 to three years at max along with rest of gang to add extra flavor to anime plot and act as manifestation of all their efforts, progress and various experiences they went through in life leaving impact on them as they grow up creating more faithful environment.
Definitely not what some of this youtubers are proposing expecting him to be fully grown up adult at this point and time which would not only be completely inappropriate for kids based show not being able to relate much with sich type of character, but it would also mess up whole story taking away from its appeal and lightheartedness due to abrupt and contrived change.
Way i see it some of this fans which expect Ash to be in twenties are taking concept of time and its passing way too literally determining Ash and other character age by how much they aged and grew older themselves, failing to understand how real life rules and physics specific for our universe don't transfer to anime and fictional characters which can stay forever young(basically immortal) stuck in loop hole of never growing up. Or in case they do with flow of time and aging going at completely different speed. Originally Posted by The Fighting Misty Most people on youtube haven't watched the show in years.

They're still going on about how Ash released Charizard, like that makes any difference anymore. lol. You would be surprised, because i see on daily basis many of fans which come from youtuibe regularly complaining about direction in which show has been taken being highly familiar with everything which happened in newer arcs.
Every site has its share of rabid and irrational individuals but contrary to some belief this whiners don't represent whole fabase on youtube contaiuning quite a lot of reasonable, more civil fans as well.

I think it's because Ash is the star and the most constant thing in the show, not to mention one of the first things that come to mind when people think of the show. It's only natural they'd want him to grow up alongside him.
But I think aging him up just to force character development is highly stupid., and I feel there really isn't much need to age Ash up by anything more than a year.
Not complaining about the other characters makes it clear to me that its not about the numbers or a problem with how anime time works, but the character. Its normal that people want to see Ash improving or at least acting smarter than he does.
