    The moment the feel like quitting it's no longer a great battle cause they are not in the same mind set. So I fail to see the reason why they be forced to do something that is no longer fun for them. Quitting at the last minute sure but halfway through that's like another freaking match for two times. People usually only quit when they feel there is NO WAY they can win.

And what if they have a lot of shit going on remember my firefighter example?

    *eyerolls*, Sure Reila, punishing people for having a life so people can have their full sized e-peen is for the best.

    The best of oversized gamer egos, anyway;

    @Anemoi; Good point but at least an Onix has the decency to beat the shit out of those damn Hoothoots. Those guys are assholes.

    Well, if I was a Pidgey I'd certainly prefer a Spearow over an Onix. At least that thing wouldn't crush me to death.

    I don't understand your question. Arceus was first. Mew came after it. Neither birthed the other.

    @Norzan; 1. I don't take the pokedex seriously for many reasons. 2. "It is said" 3. That didn't answer the question all you said was Arceus was first. If want to say you reject Mew being all pokemon's Ancestor say it but don't act like you found a solution when you didn't. If Arceus is a pokemon and Mew is ansestor of all pokemon then the Mew had to have birth Arceus or his ancestors. 4. That dex entry doesn't even conflict with my theory. It could hatch from the egg as a non pokemon created the universe and then began a pokemon through going into a descendant of Mew.

    BOOM HEADSHOT.

    @Phoenixphlare; Platinum entry "It is said to have emerged from an egg in a place where there was nothing, then shaped the world.", NOTHING existed before Arceus, it was Arceus that created all. And yes i answered your question, you asked how can you give birth to things that existed before you but nothing existed before Arceus, Arceus created the entire Pokeverse.

    Mew being the ancestor of all Pokemon doesn't even make much sense since they don't even know all the pokemon out there.

    Obviously Mew existed before the universe.
