General Opinions and Musings on Happenings in the Pokeworld

  1. I know I'm late to the party here...

    ...but I've been really surprised with how much I'm loving White 2.

    The last time I was this impressed with a 3rd version (let's be honest, this is still basically a 3rd version) was Crystal.

    It's paced well, and I haven't felt like my team has been under or over-leveled at any point.

    The first two gyms were some of the toughest times I've ever had with gym leaders in the series. Anyone else feel that way, or am I just rusty?

    Not that it ...
  2. Why debate over whether or not R/S will be remade is inherently silly.

    It's a very simple equation, really.

    Nintendo produces video games. If those video games make money, Nintendo produces more of those video games. Pokemon makes a shit-ton of money. Nintendo likes this. Nintendo likes this a lot.

    So as long as Pokemon makes money, the older games will be remade once they can be called "older games". Mark my words, if Pokemon is still making a ton of money a decade or so from now we'll be hearing about Pokemon ArrestedBecauseHeWasBlack ...
  3. So now that we are two full Generations (+ 1 year) removed from Ruby and Sapphire...

    Do the disciples of Generation III get to join we disciples of Generation I or Generation II as nostalgiafags?

    It's been 8 1/2 years, people. American Idol was in it's second season, the original run of Futurama was still on the air, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was still filming. Ruby and Sapphire ain't the new kids on the block anymore.

    Time to grow up and realize that you're one of us now, kiddies. Wear those rose-colored spectacles proudly.
  4. YeOldeJacob's Black and White Countdown, Part 2; The Ten Worst Designed Unova Pokemon

    After my list of favorite new Pokemon, the natural progression is, obviously, a list of my least favorite Unova Pokemon.

    There are a few qualifications for a Pokemon to fall under "least-favorite" in my eyes, though they don't all have to be met to be a least-favorite. They are as follows:

    • A cool-as-fuck idea that resulted in a mediocre Pokemon.
    • It's just plain ugly.
    • It's a clusterfuck (see: Pokemon with 50 different moving parts and colors).
    • It's

    I've been looking for something to write about for a while now, and I figured a countdown to Black and White (culminating in a review on Black or White, probably on Bulbanews) will give me plenty of material for the next week or so.

    Originally, I had planned to revisit each game, but honestly, I never really came up with anything decent. It was all bland and uninspired. Shit, really. So I've decided to make this countdown all about Black and White in some way. This entry, as the ...
