    I work at a grocery store with a Pokestop in it and there are always lures on it. The amount of people that come into our store and walk around catching pokemon is crazy!

    My one thing I want to be changed, is to make gyms type based like the game and show. When you see an empty gym the Pokemon you put first makes it that sort of gym. Put a Zubat? A poison gym

    Man, if people are going nuts for the first 151, I wonder how nuts they'll go for the later generations? Assuming this isn't just a nostalgia craze. Nevermind that there's 721 pokemon, at this point, but Unown has 28 shapes, and Vivillon has 20 wing patterns. And shinies! If they add shinies, there's just gonna be no end to it. I wonder, also, if they'd implement mega evolution in some capacity. Or any of the wilder stuff that's "non-canon," like venustoise, armored mewtwo, shadow pokemon, notch-eared pichu, etc.


    I'm happy to see Pokemon become a bigger part of regular life, even if I have no interest in playing Pokemon Go myself. Unless they add a combat system with the vibe of the main games (which is to say, a good deal of strategic and tactical breadth), it's purely a collect-'em dealie. Which, meh. Never was what brought me into the Pokefold.


    Oh, and I'm happy to see that they locked on to Yamask. That guy is the Existential Nightmare pokemon (not actually, but y'know). I've harbored the intense curiosity for a while now as to what a Pokemon World might look like if you based it on the Pokedex entries and eschewed other source materials, instead following through logically with how humans would grow and build in such a hyperlethal environment.

      The United States, Australia, and New Zealand were all included in the initial release on July 6th. America doesn't get Pokemon games first EVER anyway, why would that even be something you're excited about? Nintendo is based in Japan.

    Pokebutt Lover
    by Ashley, Jeremy and Gus


    I feel as though I shouldn't be having these thoughts, but despite my best efforts I can't help wondering what it'd feel like to take this incredible, handsome yellow bigfoot, the way that his massive dick might taste sliding down my throat.

    "Can I put my, " I hesitate; my voice trembling with desire, "put my balls on you.?"

    Peebaroo looks me up and down: "Sure", he finally says with a sly grin.

    I step closer and the yellow bigfoot holds out his hand before him - a perfect spot to rest my aching balls.

    “Right here?” I question.
    Peebaroo nods.
    I hesitate for a moment, positioning myself carefully and then eventually drop my balls into the creature’s fuzzy open hand.

    “Nice. Work.”, my phone suddenly announces.

    A smile crosses the monster’s face and the next thing I know he is kissing me deeply - our mouths meeting in a fit of passion as we begin to make out furiously. I can’t help letting my hands roam freely across his incredibly well-kept body, covered in fur and shizzled beyond belief. My heart is bounding hard in my chest now, my breathing laboured as my body struggles to keep up with the waves of desire that pulse through me. I am completely drunk with lust - willing to do anything and everything that this handsome bigfoot would like.

    Seizing the moment I drop down on my knees on the grass before him and look up Peebaroo with playful eyes. I take his shaft into my hand and pump my grip up and down his length a few times, faster and faster, until eventually I am beating off my Pokebutt lover with a frantic passion.


    To be continued.

    I know I will sound miserable/a hipster, but I really don't see the appeal of Pokemon GO. I have played many of the main series games and like them a lot, but this seems to barely be a game at all - and I feel people are playing it just because it is popular. Not that I have a problem with people enjoying themselves, do what you want :)

    However I expect more of a gaming discussion on the Patch, not just an hour of Pokemon GO, however popular it is at the moment. There's a lot of stuff happening in the gaming world at the moment that merits conversation!

    In the pokemon games, the move "struggle" only happens when all your other moves are out of energy. It also does recoil damage.

    Why doesn't pokemon go have the same battle system as the handheld games? instead of flicking pokeballs at them.

    • AstridOmega FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Considering the amount of issues that Go has running as it is, if they implemented the literal hundreds of potential moves, abilities, and stats (both visible and hidden), the game would probably slow to a standstill. Also, one of the most frustrating things in pokemon is accidentally killing stuff you're trying to catch, something which would be intolerable if you'd physically trecked somewhere to find a particular pokemon. Lastly, it takes a lot of back knowledge in order to play pokemon 'fluently'--like, how much damage does this move do, what effects does it have, what typing does each pokemon have and what moves are most effective against that type (since not all weaknessess/strengths are intuitive, i.e. flying vs fighting or psychic vs bug). I think the reason Go is so popular is specifically because it doesn't play like a regular pokemon game, which makes it accessible to literally anyone who decides to pick it up. As fun as an 'actual' ar pokemon game would be, it just wouldn't have the same reach or broad appeal as what they have now.

    Ryan's sentiments and mine are so eerily similar. The things that he was saying are the things that I was saying back on Monday.
