I've seen the movie myself, and I must say, it is currently one of my favorite Disney films. HumanDawn pretty much summed up some of the things I liked about the film, so I don't think I have to go in-depth on why I adored it. Oh, and several critics even compared Frozen to other classics like Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, so it is one of the most critically acclaimed Disney films to come along in the last ten years. Overall, I'd recommend Frozen to pretty much any Disney fan.
Sounds good, in that case it's worth checking out. Thanks for the info :D

Just ignore almost all of the social justice stuff you hear on Tumblr; a lot of people there know as much about things as you do, but act like they know more. As for the actual movie, I've heard a lot of good things. People have been praising that snowman because he wasn't the awful idiot people expected, and from what I've read, the story seems a lot more interesting than what I expected.
GO SEE IT
It was a fun movie, the plot was simple but good enough to hold my interest, the music was fun and good to follow, the characters were nice, and the ones I thought would end up being annoying didn't turn out to be annoying at all! There were also some nice twists I didn't expect, which is surprising to me because most of the new Disney movies have predictable turns, and I'd definitely watch the movie again when I'd get the chance. Elsa and Anna are really cute together, and the animation for them is great, it's really nice to follow and see them together in the beginning of the movie when they're small children.
Whitewashing and lack of PoC are just the same things people complain about every movie, the same people who expect almost every movie to have every kind of characters for everything even though the movie's morals and story has nothing to do with it. I'd understand if it was meant to be offensive, but it clearly wasn't, so there's nothing to complain about.
It was simply okay; there were a lot of good things going for it and a lot of bad. There were annoying comic relief characters who ruin the mood, awkwardly placed songs, and a somewhat choppy plot. It's mostly about personal preference as there are people out there who believe it is perfect. Personally I thought it had a lot of potential, but many opportunities were thrown away. I would say go see it, but that's up to you.
I've found two shinies in my play through, and I think that's a good rate of shiny to normal. Past shiny was far too out of sight for many people, and I think with the reduced rate more people are going to be happy that they found a rare pokemon. That's what Game Freak and Nintendo want, for the players to be happy and surprised in their play throughs, instead of spending days breeding for IVs and resetting shinies.
I couldn't care less about a Pokemon's "value", which is probably why I don't really care for shinies or other trophy Pokemon in general. I only really care about shinies if they actually look better than the original version, which is rarely the case.
So making them more accessible is only a good thing in my book.
Everyone is talking about how common shinies are and I'm sitting over here wondering when I'll ever see one.
Well, if you're appreciating a shiny for its street value, I can see why. I only want shiny Pokemon when they look good.
@The Outrage; I mean, I like that we can find these shiny little creatures, they're awesome and make everyone happy, like Contrary said, but as I thought about the Absol I found. I just kept thinking that it isn't as amazing as I thought, you know? Maybe I'm weird like that since it was my first one.
You sound like the people at the Battle Chateau who are upset that I was let into their little club.
It's funny that people are hating on chain-fishers for doing something that at least requires some effort to obtain a shiny Pokemon yet we're supposed to hold high praise for people in the past generations for sheer dumb luck at running into shinies.
Better than 1/8,000+ odds of ever seeing one. I've encountered a grand total of 2 shinies, ever. I get that they become less special the more common they get, but the usual odds are just too slim, especially when you soft-reset for one. I've tried to soft-reset for shiny legendaries a couple times and it's just a waste of time.
I've caught a lot of Pokemon so far (362 Seen, 169 Caught), and haven't seen one single Shiny. Maybe your just lucky?
I haven't found a shiny in X yet, but I haven't caught any pokemon at all
I don't mind. It makes people happy, and while they're more common, they're still rare. And now everyone has a nice shot at getting them, so less people will feel left out for not having one.
I just said this to my friend on skype about this:
Blame X and Y for that...
I get a shiny for the first time ever since i play pokemon in my White Version two days before X and Y came out and it seems it rains shinies in X and Y... still proud for getting a shiny Patrat.
@Contrary; Dunno, I usually don't use nicknames unless I can think of a reference/pun off something for the Pokemon, I always found things like nicknaming a Fire starter "Blaze" or "Ace" to be sorta, generic. Any suggestions?
@SharKing; I actually forgot Absol could Mega Evolve for a short while, but I can't wait to Mega Evolve it indeed :]
Congrats! What did you name it?
