I actually have a couple of these written out, but I couldn't post it during the weekend.



Most Favorite





Looks: Welp. Villain in a snuggie with eyes, that's a unique touch. What the fuck is that thing on his right eye? An eyepatch? D-Scanner? Laser eye?

Personality: What's not to like? Child abuse isn't cool But Ghetsis is a cool guy for fucking N's head up so much. He's a crazy, abusive, warped man, and that's why I love him. Or rather, the crazy, abusive, warped man the fandom often portays him as. You can find so many comics or fanart of him doing insane or random things, abusing N for lulz, and just him being fucked up. Ghetsis's unhinged personality makes him my favorite villainous team leader.

Anyone who read my first Black playthrough saw how I handled him. And you'll probably see me do it again in my next playthrough.

Other: This entry would have been up a lot sooner if I found the right picture for Ghetsis.

Looks: OMGBISHISPARKLE HE KNEADS TEH GLOMPZ! *_)!( All joking aside, N doesn't really look like a villainous team leader. He makes a unique-looking character, and it's a design I like. But he's not intimidating enough to be a leader. No wonder Ghetsis was able to push him around so easily: he still has his mommy dress him.

Personality: I can see why he has many fans. He seems like a mysterious and cool bishie with a love of animals. But I can only see him as a bratty, childsih stalker not unlike Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, albeit less annoying. To me, he's not charming, mysterious, or cool. He's just a regular basement-dwelling neckbeard who I would want to avoid if I met IRL.

Skill: Since he always uses Pokemon originating from the local area, odds are you'll have already encountered his team and found a way to beat him. (Aside from his first and last battle - the first battle features a Pokemon you haven't seen in-game yet.) So you can pretty much just kick his ass all the time and watch him throw temper tantrums.

Other: Yes, whether N counts as a villainous leader is debatable. I personally think he counts.

    Well, he was just a pawn, so I don't think he does. Besides, how can both N and Ghetsis be a leader of the same team?

    N was set up to be Plasma's king, whether or not he was a pawn. He was more of a powerless figurehead, but I still think he was.
    Ghetsis was the man behind the man, who revealed his true position near the end of the game.

    Plus, I it's easy to talk about N because everyone has an opinion of him.

    I think you accurately summed up one of my problems with BW with this example - the point where the story damages the gameplay.

    Just because the player didn't know Ghetsis' plan, doesn't mean he wasn't the true leader. He set up N to be king so that N would get a Dragon.

    Psh. Everyone knows Cyrus is where it's really at.
    It helps that he's slightly more f***ed up in DP! Adventure too.

    Yes, I know. But since N was set up to be the leader for most of the story, I feel he still counts, even though he wasn't a true leader. And again, he was a powerless figurehead. He still had the role, he just didn't have the power to back it up.

    N is a douchebag, and Sheldon is 100x more awesome than him. :C

    Someone needs to photoshop Ghetsis into this:

    I agree with the latter part. He has fan appeal. But it doesn't change the fact that I want to punch him in the teeth.

    Of course. Unless he's in one of his fursuits, because he would never hurt a Pokemon.

    Apparently one of my own comments is being moderated on my blog.

    I like this comic.

    But...what if that IS the reason why I like him? ._.
    I get what you're saying, though. That people often have misguided views of certain characters because of their outward characteristics that appears to glaze over their inherent flaws. But...I'm starting to notice that the reason why a lot of people hate him are reasons why I like him in the first place XD

    To be fair, a lot of people might like him despite his appearance, and still see him as this romantic figure because of his beliefs. I just see him differently.
