The Sun Hating Pokemon. Many AnOddEncounters have become addicted to nuzlocking and see playing pokemon normally as a sin to their culture.
Jotaro! The PS5 Price is-!
I haven't really been interested in Play Station tbh. The only Play Station games that I can remember playing are a Rayman Game, Ratchet And Clank, and Jak and Daxter(Dexter?). I still cry at night knowing I don't have a Persona Game.

Speaking of Persona. Let's get a Persona Hot Take. (Any Game)

A silent watcher who speaks only when something needs to be said. Offers free hugs to those who need them.
Persona 4 can come across as mean-spirited at times, especially in regards to scenes where the male characters are punished by the female characters for things completely outside their control and the girls never apologize for their actions.

it’s cool that half the time games don’t ask for tickets to get into the air-conditioned, free nachos room in the stadium. Otherwise, it’s very Eh.

Hmm, here’s a fun one! How about... Togekiss?

I really like it and the only reason i see it being hated is bc of serene grace + air slash flinch being annoying (its annoying if ur on the recieving end, anyways.)
Hot take on Kirby!

Despite loving the outdoors, the Neb Pokémon has more introverted hobbies. As a result it has a socially awkward temperament.
Kirby Star Allies is the most mediocre Kirby game I’ve ever played. Aside from a few new abilities everything felt rehashed. To be honest the entire Kirby series needs a soft-reboot.

How about a hot take on Nuzlocke variants (such as wedlockes)?

The game was fun but the roster is way too... unbalanced? Only one unova Mon and out of all 150~, they chose chandelure? There’s just so many odd mon choices, the assistant who’s name I forget is annoying as hell, and overall the game is honestly kinda meh. My only experience was the free trial thing they did a while back with dx, and safe to say I doubt I’m touching the game in the future.

Hot Take on... Papaer Mario, why not?

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
Paper Mario: The Origami King can reach Sticker Star levels of laziness. In terms of "upgrades", in terms of weapon variety, in terms of the story and how it wastes opportunities, and ESPECIALLY in terms of character design. Never forget that one Toad that's supposed to be really old but looks no different from literally every other Toad in the game.

Also, Intelligent Systems is being pointlessly stringent with Paper Mario guidelines and can no longer be trusted, but that's not really a hot take.

Oh look, a beehive labeled Kingdom Hearts! I'm gonna throw rocks at it!

My Kingdom Hearts hot take is the fact I’ve never even played a Kingdom Hearts game.

Animation hot take.

Animation, huh? Well, overall, it's been okay, but there's been certain shows (like Teen Titans Go!) that makes go... "Okay... why are you still on the air?". I mean I tried watching it for multiple epsiodes and, well.... nothing. And I know shows like are not meant for me, but still...

And, while it's *technically* on the same subject, Disney should really stop converting their classic animated movies into Live Action. It's NOT working. At all.

Oh, hey! There's a Beehive marked "Disney+"! I'm gonna poke it with a stick multiple times!

Don’t talk to me about BW2, ever. I don’t want to talk about it with you.
Disney+ may unironically be one of the worst services ever made. They originally had all their stuff on Netflix, but now I have to have Disney+ so I can watch Spiderman the Animated Series at my leisure. It is absolutely dreadful how much of a monopoly Disney has over the entertainment industry.

Oh, I'm sorry, you wanted a hot take. My bad.

Uh, Disney+ is the greatest service known to man, containing such amazing classics like the Simpsons which were just bought from Fox so that our corporate mouse overlord can continue to thrive in the modern age. It totally is worth the price in everyway, it's not like physical media has more intrinsic personal value or anything, definitely not. Things should remain under subscriptions forever, and we should never genuinely own any of the things we consume and they should always be digital.

Anyways I want a hot take on Hugh from Le Pogkeymens.

He's fine. He's not the worst rival or the best rival, he is perfectly serviceable. Plus his team is miles ahead of Cheren/Bianca, so there's that.

Let's try one on... profile pictures!
