    General Video Games Stuff You Just Figured Out

    Apparently, Sword and Shield changed Scrappy to now also block Intimidate. I knew that several other abilities changed to do the same thing too, but not Scrappy.

    First World Problems

    I'm such a bad cook I had a pot of water catch fire. Okay, there was something on the burner and the fire was put out immediately but still.

    First World Problems

    I had a root canal done several years ago because I suck at dental hygiene. A couple years ago, it chipped but it hadn't been a problem. Until today when it decided to break more. And if that wasn't a first world problem enough, I also don't have dental insurance unlike last time when I was...

    Nuzlocke General Pokemon you've never used before a -locke?

    I had a Moon Nuzlocke that had the rule of using my catches in order. I had a Carbink that I had to use, but that's nothing compared to what replaced it after it died. Pyukumuku. Despite having no direct damage moves, it's a surprisingly good staller in-game. Dual Screens, Toxic, and Recover. It...

    General Shiny Pokemon Thread!

    Holy shit. I just got a Shiny Arctozolt after a mere 530 fossil restores. I was fully expecting to go over odds since the Shiny Charm doesn't work on gift Pokemon, so to get it so early was quite a shock. I even picked up a turbo controller to make things go faster. I could have sworn I did more...

    Fun Things That Make You Happy!

    I've been enjoying Aminal Crossing far, far more than I expected. I tried and failed to get into New Leaf, so I was hesitant but on release day I watched a couple people streaming that are far more enthusiastic about Aminal Crossing that swayed me to get it the next morning. However, both...

    What’s the Pokémon that always dies on you

    Whismur, Loudred, and Exploud. Literally every single one that I have caught and even briefly used has died. I've had others like that, but unlike this line there have been exceptions to the rule (Notably the Tepig line).

    First World Problems

    I spent all day trying to fix something in a ROM hack for a Nuzlocke, even redoing everything else I had done, only to find out that the stuff I still need to do will fix the problem I had.

    So, this had me curious so I looked it up. According to Bulbapedia, there's about a 90% chance of a Poke Ball, and around 5% chances each for Great and Heal Balls. I knew about Poke and Heal, but I didn't know she could give you a Great Ball.

    Serious Coronavirus Public Discussion

    My University has made the decision to go all online the rest of the semester. Originally, they had planned to wait to make a decision until this time next week, but since we're at 62 confirmed cases in my state, they evidently moved up that decision.

    Serious Coronavirus Public Discussion

    As of yesterday, there are 16 presumptive positive cases in my state. I live right on the border with the state to our west. All of my state's cases have been in the central part of the state, around our capital. Our neighboring state has 7 and the closest is several counties to the west...

    General Video Games Stuff You Just Figured Out

    I realized something as I was playing LeafGreen. The S.S Anne has a bottom floor that you can go to where you battle a bunch of Sailors and Fishermen. I had never even thought about it until just recently and it just randomly dawned on me. That's because it's the crew deck.

    New FWP: The 103 lb puppy didn't want to sit still and his baby sister didn't want to help (She's two months younger).

    First World Problems

    Took my 10 month old puppy to the vet this morning for a checkup. He weighed in at 103 lbs (~47 kg). You may be asking "How is that a FWP?" I had to carry him over 10 feet by myself because every time I went to let him in, he'd back up and risk letting his 8 month old baby sister out to play...

    First World Problems

    I'm more than a little pissed off. The company that made my laptop decided that, instead of making a simple repair to the charge port, they'd instead just junk it out and have it replaced through the retailer. I went through a major US retailer (Best Buy) and upon relaying this all to me, we (Me...

    Nuzlocke General What are the luckiest moments you've had in your nuzlockes?

    I'm in the middle of a Platinum Randomizer and tl;dw I have a lot of Pokemon I can't use because of my rules. Route 211 Celestic Side, which I count as a separate area, only had one encounter that I could get. A 1% Drifblim. Not wanting to waste time searching for it, I wrote the area off...

    First World Problems

    I've come to realize how much I miss my normal laptop namely because it has everything I need on it. I have two runs on edited roms for Storylockes to complete, one of which I had a breakthrough with the story and really really want to work on but I can't until that run is done. The other one...

    What is your most embarrassing death

    Sword Wonderlocke: My Whimsicott barely survived a 4X Poison Jab from a Qwilfish because I was banking on an OHKO. Next up was a Pyukumuku. I jokingly thought "I'm going to OHKO this and Innards Out is going to kill Whimsicott after she heals." RIP Whimsicott.
