Are there any popular wolves/dogs in English folklore? Cause the only wolves I could think of that come in a pair are Hati and Skoll and those would have fit better in Pokemon Sun and Moon

Hound of the Baskervilles?

Also dire wolves, maybe?

english and gaelic folklore have a smattering of "black dogs" that the hound of the baskervilles was probably (definitely) based on but they're not exactly famous, except for maybe the Church Grim

I won this avatar on a technicality this thick.

I heard a rumor that there might be armor items that reduce or outright negate certain Pokemons' elemental weaknesses.

if you count as far back as when england was roman territory it could be a legendary pair of wolves based off of romulus and remus

99% of the time "rumor" means "some random guy on reddit/4chan/gamefaqs said this".

So "Sw" and "Sh" are the abbreviations that people have decided upon.

"SwSh" reminds me of "Swish".

So a friend told me there's a Japanese folklore story about rabbits, monkeys, and frogs called Chōjū-jinbutsu-giga.

Sobble being a chameleon slightly falters this, but otherwise it fits the bill for the starters, pretty neat.

I mean, you can just google this, but they're a set of famous paintings, not anything from folklore. It's more like Dogs Playing Poker.

more games should do what SSBU did and just have a 40 minute direct where you flat out reveal the whole game and just reveal small new details every 2 months or so- it builds just as much hype if not more

I wanna know what new pokes we getting

I feel lovely that i'm not hyped.

I didn't want this to be BotW or anything like that. But. Just a little closer to Dragon Quest or Xenoblade in terms of overworld, and like a camera you can control, keep some stuff from Let's Go like the pokemon hanging in the overworld or following you.

New region and new 'mons will probably be enough for me to play once at least. Though i'm gonna be eyeing SMTV harder whenever ATLUS decides to show something.

Football Hooligans = Team Skull (yay!)

Snooty Aristocrats = Team Flare (yawn)

Clearly, Football Hooligans are the superior choice.

Too much hype is actually a bad thing.

Plus, the sense of discovery from seeing a Pokemon you never knew about is fun and good, and they tried to foster that with SM. (And maybe XY? I don't recall.)

I have yet to play ultra sun and moon, but I beat sun and moon and it felt kinda lackluster for some reason.


That said, lately I've had the itch to play again. As my brain is broken, I have selected in 2019 to replay Pokemon Pearl. May god have mercy on my soul.

Just so you know, the 38th episode in Japan caused the show to go on hiatus due to a seizure incident. It was pulled from rotation and never made it west, but by the time the show came back on the air, they were translating it for the west and started making more filler episodes. Ash has 6 badges by episode 32 but then takes another 27 to get his 7th.

When the first season came on TV, I was a senior in high school and clearly “too old” to watch a kids cartoon. Sigh, I regret that. This show is fun! I only just got into Pokémon with Gen 6.
