Toys R Us near me is closing, think I'm about to go there with a friend. Think they'll have stuff on sale?
No. I went there when they first had their sales. Plenty of cards, but no sale off on them. Go there again a week later, all gone...
Maybe not at first, but they need to move inventory eventually.
Just got back. Nothing on sale, even had very big signs saying "TRADING CARDS NOT ON SALE". I could find any relevant boosters though, just bought a crimson invasion collector box and mach theme deck to complete my garchu deck. Not sure if good choice on the box, there were no boosters besides SM & BREAKPOINT

Why the fuck was this allowed? Losing because your pokemon weren't strong enough is one thing, but losing because your pokemon refused to listen to your commands even though you had every badge, which means that all pokemon are supposed to obey you? Seriously, what the fuck were the writers thinking

How retarded are you?
They never explained why getting the badges didn't earn Charizard's favor. It was never said or implied that Charizard thought those badges weren't obtained legitimately, and at the time he really just decided to become an asshole after evolving.

The real bullshit was the Pokemon League forcing Ash to compete instead of giving him time to rest up after he was literally abducted and had to fight his way free. Richie looked like an absolute fraud as a result and we were basically cheated out of seeing a full Pokemon League experience.
Better question: why wasn't the match rescheduled? A 10 year old was kidnapped by a criminal syndicate, and after saving the other trainers pokemon and escaping, he rocks up absolutely exhausted with his pokemon in need of healing.
But lol fuck it make the kid do the match or disqualify him.
Anime doesn't and shouldn't follow game rules.

The Switch game will have a real-time battle system. Type effectiveness will still exist, but tit won't have as big of an impact as they do in the current system; just like in the anime, a Pokemon with a disadvantage can still win by outsmarting the opponent.

Night Slash: "The Japanese name つじぎり (Crossroad Killing) refers to the way in which some samurai would test new swords in feudal Japan, known as Tsujigiri. This was by hiding in wait by a road (typically a crossroads, thus its literal translation) and waiting for an unsuspecting commoner (i.e. lower class, and so with far fewer rights than the samurai class) to pass by. He would then strike to kill, and in this way learn how well his new sword could cut."

It was something only bad samurai would do during a period of anarchy and was outlawed years later.

Indeed. Commoners have no real conception of strength or honor. They'll always go for the laziest, dirtiest tactics possible in all walks of life. That's why they're commoners; bottom feeders.
There is nothing wrong with cutting them down. They'd try to do the same to a samurai if they thought it would bring them 10 minutes of fame instead of execution.
Samurai were about as honorable as Knights were chivalrous.
They're both simply castes of warriors that have been romanticized, and though they were held to certain standards they were only human and many of them didn't actually live up to the iconic image of what it meant to be a member of their group, and in fact many of their numbers abused their power.
They were honorable fighters with a strong sense of loyalty. Didn't mean they considered random shitty peasants as human.

Philantrophists generally don't have a problem swatting flies either. Same basic concept.
Reminder that bushido and the whole samurai honour thing was mostly made up later, after the fact.

whoever draws dialga can start a new thread

We pick our starter for a reason. We don't want it to turn into the direct opposite of what we originally chose it for.

>Chubby bow tie owl turns into slim archer edgelord.

>Sulky emo cat turns into buff wrestler standing on two legs

>Cute clown sea lion turns into furbait mermaid

Not to mention they all look like people in animal suits.

Gen 4 was perfect. The evolutions looked like natural progressions of the first stages concept and look actually beast like and you know, like monsters, instead of fursonas.

Dont get attached to a starter when Gen 8 is revealed. It'll turn into the exact opposite of what the first stage is.

That's nowaday's animation.

>My face when trying to watch the supposedly last episodes of Dragon Ball Super
>One episode with animation only slightly more impressive per ten episodes

Their budgets just aren't what they used to be. Or the animators, I dunno. Not like Pokemon's the pinnacle of fight animations, but XY for instance had some impressive animations in certain episodes. But they often tend to need to sacrifice one thing to get the other thing looking better. That's why most times, human trainers looked pretty damn static.
You remember the original fakes, anon? The one with Ballio? Decidueye's fake version was the same concept as the real thing, everything else was different. So no, Decidueye was the only one that evolved into something predictable.
>one out of thousands fake designs is similar, so it means it's predictable
What a stupid argument, those weren't the only fake designs ever made. I'd say the most predictable after seing the base stages was Decidueye, maybe Primarina after seeing the second stages or Incineroar since it's pretty much a Torracat standing up.

So, /vp/, what types of starters would you like to see in Gen 8? I'm personally wanting a Grass Monkey, Fire Rabbit, and Water Snail.

Fire/Poison physically offensive Platypus.

Grass cave bear, Fire rabbit/chinchilla or horse, Water mangrove/mud crab
Scratch the water one, apparently there's an amphibious centipede that's way more interesting


OP here
It would follow a fairy tale theme.
Monkey becomes Grass/Steel warmonger Gorilla
Rabbit becomes Fire/Fairy knight that uses fur weapons to fight.
Water starter is actually a parasite inside the snail's shell, it becomes a Water/Rock fortress carried around by several snails.

Yes, that's been confirmed by their Ultra Guardian gear. The female Pokemon are all wearing bows.

Vulpix, Steenee, Togedemaru, and Popplio are female, and all of the other Pokemon are male.
