WHICH SIDE WILL YOU JOIN: SADISM OR MASOCHISM???
- SUN (-ism)
- MOON (-sochism)
- I don’t Pokiemen also I hate myself and the world
So the rumors are that the new Pokemon will be in a tropical region like Hawaii. Here’s compiled evidence, as stolen from /vp/:
Translated for normal humans to understand: the concept of the sun and moon have lots of relevance in Hawaiian mythology, the short trailer specifically super briefly shows an XY butterfly with a pattern that only exists in Hawaii or the nearest surrounding oceans, the tiny concept art of vehicles have Hawaii-looking license plates or resemble Hawaiian vehicles, there’s a special item in XY that’s said to be from a mystery region that’s obviously some kinda Tiki statue, palm trees in hotel concept art, and a wireframe Pokemon model they showed resembles a bird native to Hawaii.
Internet detectives are amazing.
Anyway, they put up Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow up on the 3DS Virtual Console with all the original glitches, only adding local wireless trading via 3DS, so I’ve been playing through Yellow recently. I really forgot how fast the gameplay is because of the complete lack of animation. You can get in and out of a fight in the same amount of time it’d take a modern gen game to have both Pokemon come out and then have a battle menu open up. Also the lack of polished graphics really adds an abstract layer to the game which my imagination naturally fills up. The modern games in comparison are like watching a movie - my brain shuts off and I don’t even process what I’m doing half the time.
Anyway, I got to Cerulean City and I did the quick Mew glitch to get myself a non-game-breaking lv7 Mew! Check this link for more info on how: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mew_glitch
I’ve been tweeting my Pokeprogress, click the links to see pics:
But man, to do the quick Mew glitch, you need to have an Abra and I forgot that they changed Abra’s location in Yellow to be below Cerulean City, meaning you have to have met Bill already yet not have beaten Misty or a handful of other random trainers for the glitch to work. Also Abra’s encounter rate is like 1% and I couldn’t catch him even with a Great Ball, so I basically spent an hour and half trying to catch a stupid yellow teleporting asshole and getting so frustrated. Damn you, Abra, you beautiful Psychic bastard.
My current team is: Nidoking, Nidorina, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Clefairy, Abra. I think I’ll just beat the entire game with Nidoking as my starter just like I always wanted to as a kid.
Tell me about your Pokemon good times! Did you do anything for the 20th anniversary last Saturday? Excited for the new gen?
I hope they release Gold/Silver/Crystal on eShop too. They are the true masterpieces of Pokemon.
