Hey guys, coming over here with a new game I think would be fun. The rules are simple- I’ll start this thread by selecting a topic. The next poster gives their hot take about that topic, and chooses a topic for the next person to work with! So, for example, if the previous poster had said “pineapple” as their topic, I might say “the most metal fruit, as it tries to eat you back”

With that said, first topic: Hats

Actually, Saint was the name of the scientist. You're thinking of Saint's beleaguered creator, Garden.
Ooh, I do have a take for this one! I think too much focus on memorizing algebraic formulas and other tedious, strict variations of mathematics bores people out of the subject even if they're supposedly 'good' at it. I think the education system should introduce abstract algebra even if only as an elective class, though that would also require a much less harsh grading system!

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
Well that just sounds like gambling with extra steps.

Why does every game have a different battle system? Also, not that much like Pokémon, really.

Preferring to operate in the dark, this pokemon is quick to obtain and discard many behaviors.
A cheap tactic to avoid giving certain pokemon an actual evolution, most likely to avoid gen 4 syndrome.

It’s alright. I like that you can pretty much challenge the gyms in whichever order. Other than that it’s nothing special

Aside from its magical elements, it's the mythical creature that's most likely to be real (or at least have been). It's basically just a horse with a horn, so it's certainly not too far out of the realm of possibility.

Not really much of a big deal as long as you don't force them on anybody else.
