I'm not sure if X and Y are really that easy...
But I agree, that the new exp. share makes training Pokemon WAY too easy. If anything, they should have made it a post-e4 item, so you could train weak Pokemon easily AFTER defeating the main story, at which time Pokemon training is optional (pretty much). It should NOT have been something you get AFTER THE FIRST GYM! Like seriously, wut, GF?
OR, they should have made the Exp. Share (working the same way it has been since Gen II) an early item, then madethe Exp. All (like in Gen I), which would share experience between all your Pokemon, after the E4.
I liked the EXP share since I could stop fighting random encounters and most trainers by the seventh gym. Was nice to go from gym seven -> the end of the game without worrying about levels.
Ended up a bit underleveled by the time I reached the Champ but it wasn't a problem.
What I really miss was a challenging champion battle. Gary Oak was a challenge. Cynthia was a challenge. Because type balance. Gen VI's champ battle was a joke.
The other issue with Gen VI was all the things they give you for free:
Kalos starter (okay, every game gives you a starter, no big deal)
Kanto starter (all of which have mega forms)
Lucario (your first Mega as well. Bonus points for the simple fact that a Mega Lucario with a good moveset can solo the final battle at level)
Snorlax (fine, you have to catch it, but again, it's pretty much a freebie)
Lapras (given to you if you talk to a certain guy and have a spot in your party)
Let's run through the list now and compare it to my final team.
Charizard / Mega Charizard X (kanto starter)
Lucario / Mega Lucario (free Lucario)
Gengar / Mega Gengar (given to me by Oblivion, hatched as a Gastly, raised myself)
Pidgeot (hey, I actually caught something)
To me this was the real problem: you could very easily make it through the game without catching a single Pokemon. Or catch a bird and a bug and cut them lose after the second gym. So to me the real problem is combining the fact that you're given five powerful mons for free and that EXP share means you're overleveled.
I agree, the Exp Share makes the game WAAAYYY too easy. Seriously, we go from hard opponents like Clay, Colress, Elesa (although she's difficult through cheapness. I'll forgive her because she's hot.), Ghetsis and Drayden; to easy Gym Leaders and an Exp Share that makes your party 10 levels higher than they should be. I turned it off in my playthrough for that reason.
EVERYBODY IS SAYING THAT GEN VI IS EASY BUT I'M FINDING IT CHALLENGING EVEN WITH EXP. SHARE
IS IT JUST THAT I'M STUPID OR SOMETHING???????
That's one pretty long questionaire O_O

.No one's pretending. ^^
And how many times have I seen statements like this before?
I'm sorry. Try to not beat yourself down about school or home drama. It will all pass- it's the price we pay for living. I know from experience that eventually you won't have strength left if you let these things hurt you. Just accept things, and try ignoring them and focusing on good things to come. Not long after your attitude changes, so will your life. You won't end up on the streets. Enjoy exploring possibilities for your future, and if you put in a little effort once you find what you want to do, you can get there. Many people, myself included, worry about their future, since it's uncertain. You can find happiness basically no matter how rich or poor you are, but your dreams are entirely reachable. Live in the moment. Life is a journey- there's no focused destination. I used to not know what I was feeling either, but you've got to make yourself think positive. Stay here for the good things you could do, for the people you cared about, for the people you care about now, and for the ones you'll care about in the future. Stay here for yourself, because the world deserves to have you on it. Stay here for the good times that will come if you allow them to, and they'll make the bad more than worth living through. I'll wish you the best, and I'm here if you ever want to talk.
I feel the exact same way towards my life.
No matter what, though, even though it may not look like it, someone will always be by your side.
You're not worthless and there's nothing you can do about it. But seriously, if you're worthless than everyone else is just as worthless. You don't have to live up to other people's standards. Don't do things for them, do things for yourself and don't give a crap what the Hell they think about your grades or whatever. The only one you'll be letting down is yourself if you keep taking people's insensitivity and ignorance seriously. Don't get angry about it, it's a fact of life, so try and let it go. You're not the hideous person you think you are. And so what if you were ugly, there would be no use taring yourself up about it. You don't need to see a talent in yourself right away. Just enjoy life and your talent will come. Everyone has good and bad qualities within themselves. Just don't obsess over it and try letting go of all the stuff you let get to you. Be strong and keep running towards the bright future that's waiting for you to find it.
Wow, it looks great!
Happy Birthday :D
Woo. Happy Birthday!
MARRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO KARKAT!!!
I know that feeling. For that bad art that gots loads of comments - just consider that people commented on the bad art because they just wanted the artist to feel better. If they haven't commented on yours - it means it's perfect.
I sympathize, I really do. :S deviantART is particularly horrible for this. Good luck.
Comparing myself to other people is what made me quit things I wish I had stayed on 7 years later.
So I recommend you ask yourself: when 7 years pass from now and you've not done art since then, would you feel any regret?
Life is full of disappointments.
And this is just my opinion but if the only thing motivating you to draw/paint/whatever is being gushed with comments and reviews then you maybe shouldn't bother.
