    Re: Why is the dub so fickle on death?

    I suspect that from 4Kids' perspective, a deadbeat mother would be considered more taboo than a dead one.

    I couldn't speak for Japanese culture, but certainly in western culture it's typically...

    Re: Dogasu's Backpack Discussion

    The "longtime fans" aren't the ones for whose devotions Pokemon is currently competing with Yokai Watch. It's elementary school children who are snapping the latter up in droves.

    In fact, those...
  3. Re: Why do you think Wally was absent in the anime?

    Male rivals have typically gotten the short end of the stick, as has been pointed out, although Wally has had the bad luck of being completely ignored (Silver and Brendan at least had small cameos in...

    Sticky: Re: Pokémon Evolution/Capture/Release Thread

    Chespin being stuck in his current form isn't a massive surprise, given that he's being played as the XY successor to Oshawott (adding Luxio to the equation also lessens Clemont's need for a bigger...

    REVIEW: Re: Pocket Monster: Mega Evolution Act II

    Yes, you don't need to point that out to me. I just found it amusing is all.

    REVIEW: Re: Pocket Monster: Mega Evolution Act II

    Most eyebrow-raising moment for me was when Lysandre was able to pet his Pyroar's mane. I thought that caused burning in Amie?
  7. Re: How do you think Serena's Yancham will evolve?

    No trades, please. Serena caught a pokemon that was purposely characterised to go with her goal of pokemon performing. I see no reason why it would end up with Ash when performing is what it...
  8. Re: Toys R Us pulls Breaking Bad toys over controversy

    It depends what you mean by "mature". Toys which are intended more for display than to be played with, or toys which are merely based upon an adult-orientated franchise are not, in themselves,...
  9. REVIEW: Re: XY045: "Citron VS Eureka!? A Sibling Battle for Nyaonix!!"

    Hopefully they'll still do the traditional "Meowth falls for the regional cat" story later on in XY. The "Meowth falls for Glameow" episode came along very late in Sinnoh, when Glameow was already a...
  10. Re: Toys R Us pulls Breaking Bad toys over controversy

    Anyone who read the news story in the OP would know that they have sections for "adult action figures". There is, however, a big difference between stocking toys intended to appeal to adult...
  11. Re: Growing up, what did your parents ban you from?

    I was banned from Trick or Treating. At one point, I also wasn't allowed to have crisps in my school lunch, except on a Friday.
  12. Re: Toys R Us pulls Breaking Bad toys over controversy

    Doesn't the very existence of this thread answer that question?[/QUOTE]

    It's about context. When you know the store as selling disney toys and suddenly content like that shows up of course it's...

  14. Re: Why Do The Writers Love Ash's Heracross so Much?

    Heracross got Oaked early on in Johto, all so that Bulbasaur could remain on Ash's team long after the other two Kanto starters had departed. I wasn't feeling the love back then. :p
  15. Re: Toys R Us pulls Breaking Bad toys over controversy

    That would be a terrible move PR-wise. Toys R Us has always marketed itself as a family-friendly brand - there's no more sure-fire way to compromise that brand than by sticking an "adults only"...
  16. Re: Toys R Us pulls Breaking Bad toys over controversy

    Honestly, if the Breaking Bad action figures contained bags of meth for accessories, then I think this was absolutely the right thing to do. Even if the toys weren't actually aimed at children,...

    Re: What if Pikachu and Meowth did evolve?

    In fairness, that leopard is visibly sitting on its backside for additional support. Any "walking" would likely involve a lot of painful and undignified bottom shuffling. ;p

    REVIEW: Re: S17 ep 39 "Summer Of Discovery!"

    It's not the first time they've cooked to earn some cash. And being able to cook isn't the same as being able to afford food[/QUOTE]

    Well, James is rich so he can definitely afford some food for...

    Re: The Science Behind Type Match-Ups

    People fear fire (traditionally more so than bugs, I would say) and yet Fire has no advantage over Psychic. In fact, every pokemon type has a fear factor somewhere, given that, by their very nature,...
  20. Re: "Holiday Hi-Jynx!" — Banned Once Again?

    It doesn't make a lick of difference what Jynx is supposed to be. Fact is, Jynx does bear an unfortunate resemblance to a blackface entertainer (not an actual black person), which is one of the...

    Re: The Science Behind Type Match-Ups

    I've never put any stock in that theory myself. For one thing, the "Dark" in Dark type does not refer to an absence of light.

    Re: What if Pikachu and Meowth did evolve?

    Problem is that he learned to walk as a Meowth. Persian's bodily proportions are pretty different, so the ability wouldn't transfer so easily. Persian's limbs and torso are longer and stockier, and...

    Re: What if Pikachu and Meowth did evolve?

    Not sure what the exact wording in the original was, but in the dub he said that he couldn't learn Pay Day because he used up so much "energy" (and later "smarts") learning how to talk and walk...

    Re: Anime headcanons?

    In my own headcannon it stopped appearing because it got eaten by an Exploud with Soundproof. The Marill from the ANA shorts is its reincarnation.

    Re: The Simpsons's Death

    A troll it may be - I've no doubt that Al Jean used the whole "Emmy-winning" angle in order to taunt people into thinking that a major character might be for the axe - although what he'd said about...
