Notes from the Shadow Realm

Power Fuser, Henshin! FusengerShadow is powered up and ready to rant about things in the Pokémon world.

  1. The Mind of the Fan

    by , 22nd April 2010 at 03:08 PM (Notes from the Shadow Realm)
    As I sit here posting this, my Seesmic Desktop app is dinging, letting me know of new updates from those whom I follow on Twitter. Among those are Gym Leaders Sabrina and Erika, Elite Four members Karen and Will, and Champions Lance and Cynthia. Not only that, I talk back and interact with them, despite knowing that these are merely people playing the roles of said characters.

    And yet, this is not the craziest thing fans of the Pokemon franchise, or fans of anything for that matter, ...
  2. Of Electric Mice and Kids

    For some weird reason right now, a question keeps popping into my mind. Honestly, it's a question I don't even have an answer to for myself, let alone for anyone else, because the possible answers vary widely. After all, when one starts playing Pokemon, obviously, how they play is going to effect what their team is, how they train said team, and when they go after which Pokemon (and for what reason). Some of us are content to simply catch until we're satisfied with our team; others obsessively ...
  3. Gotta Catch 'Em...Zzz

    Before I get into this blog's real topic, you will all be no doubt happy to note that I have quite calmed down from the whole "omg the point is being missed" rant following the pressing of my Berserk Button (thank you, TVTropes). Am I still annoyed about the whole deal? Well, honestly, yeah...but as far as borderline blind fury, not so much. Of course, part of that could be that I'm more half asleep right now than anything else...

    With that completely unwarranted non-sequitur ...

  4. Conceptual Disappointment

    by , 31st March 2010 at 11:40 AM (Notes from the Shadow Realm)
    I am rather dismayed. It seems that in my thread regarding possible alternate triangles to the traditional Fire/Water/Grass line (which I won't link to because I trust you are all resourceful enough to find it, and because I don't like to self-promote), there are people who seem to be content with discounting the notion altogether simply because the aforementioned grouping is traditional. There are people who have suggested alternate triads as I was hoping, but there are just as many who seem to ...

  5. What I've (Not Yet) Done

    by , 29th March 2010 at 11:14 AM (Notes from the Shadow Realm)
    In four generations and 17 main-franchise games(that's right, folks, 17 games without counting the spin-offd and including the 4 remakes), there are a few things that I've never done. Some of them are serious, and some of them are silly, but most of them have a very good reason behind them. This is my attempt to jot them down and in some cases, justify them. Why two similar lists back to back? Hey, I just write what comes to my mind. (Besides, I feel like I forgot something that annoyed me, but ...
