    I used the real map that came with Red Dead Redemption and used that to get around.

    Ryan, I had a casio calculator watch in high school too.

    Oh, well. I guess I won't be playing a Pokémon game ever again, unless I decide to play an older one. Getting lost and discovering new locations is what made the games fun for me.

    I love Ryan's argument against animal cruelty :) also he reminded me of that one episode of Black mirror, where AI copies of human minds live in a "box" and can't get out by themselves, truly horrifying :)

    Every time I see someone's attempt at making Pokemon some kind of darkedge scenario, I remember that in Sinnoh, they explicitly said that Pokemon approach trainers specifically to battle. And before people say "oh it's cause they are feral beasts who live for violence," it's also implied multiple times that Pokemon battle and compete for their own prestige. It's a symbiotic relationship. A good trainer makes a living raising powerful Pokemon while Pokemon get access to stronger opponents and experiences it would never have in its native habitat


    Not to mention, if the anime is to be taken seriously, the pokedex in the anime did say that wild Pokemon attack trainers because they are jealous of the relationship that trainers and their Pokemon have


    Like, to the people who make these edgyass theories-- Have you never even TALKED to any NPCs? You'd need to be mashing A a million times a minute to miss any of this

    the prices for classic pokemon games from previous consoles skyrocketed thanks to pokemon go, the hype was there and has come and gone. Pokemon Sun and Moon is going to drive new players to get it but only a few.

    Meh Ryan's not wrong. You do essentially beat the crap out of a Pokemon, catch it, train it to battle for badges and if you get a better pokemon you stuff it into a computer to make room for the new one. And then there are HM slaves...still fun though.

      Sure, but for me the game is a game, so any and all subjects should be allowed in it :)

    Does the new pokemon game have contests? Is that still a thing?

    Randomness; the link cable and GBA could be used on Splinter Cell for the Gamecube.  It would display the in-game map if I am recalling right.

    So you have a pokemon that is basically a possessed pokedex now? So what when you send the pokedex pkmn to fight does he tell you This is a ghost type charizard...when I'm finished with him. Cuz honestly that would be pretty cool. "This is a kabuto. They were once thought to be an extinct race of ancient pokemon. I will make them so once again. "

      it's not a new pokemon, it's an existing electric pokemon called rotom that possessed your specific pokedex and basically turned into siri, i'm afraid you can't use it in battle

    Matt's profile took 2 weeks to transfer because Nintendo's AOL trial had expired and they had to wait for another disc.


    It's so much worse if Pokemon don't experience time within Pokeballs because then their entire life is a constant fight. Like Master Chief fighting for what is to him 2 years straight, except Pokemon aren't doing it willingly. Take them from their life in the wild, make them fight for your profit while you sit there completely safe, then freeze them in time so they're constantly fighting for you for no reward just because you yanked them from their life. That's terrifying.

      That's a good question. The last one was way back on September 9. I hope the series isn't dead. Ryan must date weird pidgeon ghost things.
