on a similar note, this.

now if Brendan is the pc, then apparently we will have megas from the beginning, and could mean that the rival won't have a mega Sad (well, Wally could still get one, if he is in the game. which he hopefully is.).
But if May is the pc then that means that the rival can have a mega as well this time.
Maybe even Wally gets one.

Oh my god, so many people! I missed all y'all, too, just so you know.

I currently don't do much on mspaf because my phone has issues with that site. And I think everyone knows about me and Skype...

(I might also be too much of a bullhead (Is that really the english word fo Sturkopf?) to go to the mspaf pokemon thread. I'm worse then an elephant with a vengeance, once you've fucked me over, I will remember it forever and I will hate you for it.)

My main problem with tournaments is my internet connection. Even when my internet on my computer is fixed, I still won't have internet onmy 3DS...

Hey PD, hope you're okay :O In consolation, I can say I almost certainly have at least one Rotom egg. The catch is: I have four well shuffled boxes of eggs and it's unlikely to be any more than 3 of them. I can check the dates but the chance is slim.

I may have a semi usable old parent, though?

Also wow @ the boss mega stones! I'm reluctant to jump on the Sharpedo/Camerupt bandwagon though. They've always been flavour-Pokemon on their teams as opposed to signature Pokemon. MegaVoir Wally, though, I could see that. Now that MegaSableye exists, I can't really argue anything else doesn't... but there are a lot of Hoenn Megas as-is.

Screw it. Tanky Mega Gallade.

megavoir wally is definitely gonna be a thing yea

and i don't knooow i mean. you wouldn't have guessed lysandre's gyarados ends up mega evolving. or rival's absol. they both don't seem like very "signaturey" pokémon because of their lack of focus outside of battle and yet, wouldya lookadat.

i'm definitely betting mega sharpedo and camerupt will happen. like 90% sure! if i end up being wrong i s2g i will literally eat my shoe

d_what wrote:(though we could probably write an interesting academic journal r.e. Kotakun's nebulous existence)
the nebulous existance of kotakun on quarantine

abstract: kotakun has an old computer that is a fuckin piece of shit that works about half the time our studies have found that when it doesnt work surprisingly he isnt on pokemon quarantine in the rare case that it does work then he is busy doing other things as well because quarantine isnt the only website that he is on

keywords: kotakun quarantine pokemon existance

people have long wondered for at least a day about the reasons behind the nebularity of kotakuns existance on the website pokemon quarantine being a totally nonimportant question asked by like two people it is obviously an important investment of our time to figure out the reasons behind this
the first part of our study was looking at how kotakun accesses pokemon quarantine during this period we found that the computer is in technical terms "a fuckin piece of shit" additionally the internet connection that he has is similarly poor at being up for extended periods of time
another part was looking at all the other sites that he was on to determine how much could be allocate to pokemon quarantine it turns out that other sites such as mspa tumblr and youtube these other sites take up a surplus of time leaving only a little bit left for pokemon quarantine
as seen from this research there are two main facts that can be concluded from this firstly is that there are a number of reasons for why kotakun isnt on the website as much and appears so nebulously on and secondly that i have no clue how to structure the body of an academic journal article but that doesnt matter because i got to use the phrase fuckin piece of shit in it

Aww man, I don't even have a Wii U yet! You have no idea how difficult it is to wait for MK8. Well, one more month until my birthday...

On the topic of megastones, there are only two logical, reasonable options for Maxie and Archie-- either they have something able to megavolve added to their teams that they didn't have before, since their previous teams had none, or Camerupt/Sharpedo get megavolutions. Honestly, I don't want to assume anything, but the latter seems more likely at this moment. If megavolutions of those two get announced at any point, I'm not gonna be all too suprised.

Well, lets think, which mons could be added to their teams? It should probably be water/fire types and it probably won't be one of the starters, so...
Gyarados and Houndoom?

EDIT: Unless, maybe this time they manage to control their legends and they use them in battle, though that seems a bit unlikely to me

Whoops sorry traveling right now so I don't have very many opportunities to check my computer!

Y'know, I did kind of miss the endless Poochyenas and honestly wouldn't mind too much if they just did that again. And megalutions for Camerupt and Sharpedo would be amazing.

So iT how long have you been reading Ava's Demon?

I could add my opinions about it here but there's not much point. Art = mostly really good, Updates = mostly too slow and unreliable, that covers it all really.

Imma gonna check for today's Paranatural/ update instead k

I also read paranatural!!! But I knew about it before P-Space so that makes me cooler than all of you. *flips hipster scarf*

I started reading ava's demon last year and liveblogged it, but then the hiatus happened and I forgot it was a thing, a couple days ago I archive binged and reread the entire thing in one night. The art's gorgeous, seriously. I wish I had skills like that.
...Also D, what do you mean by slow and unreliable, it updates regularly?

I've read paranatural long before p-space and me and some friends over on the Nightnight Crew Forum collectivly flipped our shit when Zack made a comic on p-space, because Zack is awesome and Homestuck is awesome and the two combined are awesome^2. So far, I haven't found any new webcomics to read through p-space, but a few of the ones I read made stories for p-space, which is awesome.

...Mario Kart 7 has Bikes? This is news to me. Hm.

iT: Yeah I know it updates Monday and Thursday, but... whether due to conventions or sicknesses or websites or kickstarters or miscellany, sometimes, in fact regularly, you can be waiting one, two, almost three weeks for an update. Also the updates, while artsy, are pretty small. You can summarise the plot to the point it is pretty quickly - each page is really only a single panel in an otherwise larger script.

Compare Paranatural, which has made considerable plot progress using a similar update schedule, despite it only being about two days in to the story. Also it's friggin' hilarious. AND SO HAMMY

"Snark attack! Close the beaches!!" I love that guy.


Spoiler:
it's a little concerning how so many webcomics nowadays are centered around "kids with powers". Avas Demon, Homestuck, Paranatural, Monster Pulse, and soooo many more. It's like as a generation(s) we've collectively gone back to our childhoods in comic forms. It's a little weird. Why does it appeal so much to our psyche?? Why is it always kids and not older teenagers or young adults? Is the telling of another coming-of-age tale really that important to us?

Spoiler:
You might be a bit biased, I mean, I read a lot of webcomics and yeah, there are a couple about kids with powers but there are also many that are not. You probably reads the ones about kids with powers and thus feel there are many of them. You are like someone reading 8 bit comics and wondering why so many of them are about old video games. Though you have a fair point, most "with power" comics are either about kids or about adults, rarely about teenagers it seems.

Yes, selection bias is a thing. Mind, I'm not claiming they're in the majority. I read other comics too - it just seems that THAT PARTICULAR genre is having a growth spurt, and I wonder whether it's coincidence or a symptom of an underlying trend.

Equally, it's self referential. Why do I end up reading them. What's in it for me. Do I have a peter pan complex? Am I alone in this, or, again, a symptom of a trend among my generation? So many hypotheticals.
