I think the Discord has settled on Blipbug, but I've been trying to theorize about what the answer could be (because theorizing and overthinking can be fun sometimes) and I wonder if that's all there is to it. First of all if it's just Blipbug being released, why does it warrant a fully fledged event? You could just wait until the end of next month and distribute it as a SWSH prize like all the other Galar Pokemon. Also, I think the criteria of strange-looking and intelligent fit Blipbug, but there's nothing to suggest Blipbug is specialized in a particular subject or field. Can you even convince a Blipbug to come and host an event with you? Is it capable of speech? I personally think it's a new novelty, but even then what is the event going to be centered around? The only relevant holiday (at least in the United States where this game is based) coming up is Labor Day, which is on September 7th, but 2 weeks in advance feels too early to start hinting about it, and wouldn't that just mean the "certain subject" the Pokemon is interested in is labor? Are we somehow commemorating Labor Day with a Novelty Pokemon that represents class struggle? It's probably just Blipbug though.

Now, I hope the Pokemon in question is listening because I'd like to formally apologize to it. I meant no offense in confusing you with Blipbug. I, and several other members of our community, are grateful you are coming to our humble website to host an event for us, and in our excitement we got ahead of ourselves and began guessing at what kind of Pokemon you might be. Now, all of us on GPX+ know that patience is a virtue, but even the strongest of wills can have lapses at times, and this is true in your case as PokeNOM has stated that it took until nightfall to calm down from our grievous transgression. Curiosity killed the cat, as they say. Did you know though that that's not the full quote? It's actually "Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back." We are curious to learn more about you and what particular subject you are interested in, and believe it would satisfy us to know both of these things. (Also, we do not mean to imply that you are a cat, it's just an expression). However, it's important to be courteous and respectful of others, especially to other species that seem to be capable of intelligent thought and even speech as you are. To use another turn of phrase, it is rude to speak frankly about someone as if they are not listening. We know you are listening, mysterious Pokemon, as you heard our erroneous guess and were gravely upset by it. We would like to look you in the eyes as we speak, nod along with what you are saying, and digest and repeat back the information you deign to share with us, as those are the proper qualities of an active listener, yes indeed. We would like to speak to you as we would speak to a new person we would like to know better, kindly and respectfully. Now, instead of gathering together in an exclusive little club to say our prodding little words, I would like to step forward to ask a very simple question: What is the "certain subject" you are interested in?

You're pushing some kind of limit here, but I don't know what it is hmm.gif

Howdy all.

I haven't been here in a while, but I'm making an effort to come back somewhat and I must have picked a good time since this event's happening tomorrow.

How's everyone been? This year's been pretty awful, but I keep holding onto the hope that it'll get better. Hope all of you in the southern US are doing alright after Laura hit.

I'm gonna be attending Ramapo College up in north New Jersey this fall, and move-in is actually this Sunday. I'm excited, though I'm a bit nervous what with it being a new experience and not under the best of circumstances with Covid still being a very real thing. Despite that, I'm still optimistic and I think it will be good.

Random 'mons I like:



@ The Majestic Mr L : Fingers crossed everything goes well for you! The pandemic is certainly making everything more difficult, that's for sure.


Also, hello everyone. Forum bug decided to relent and let me back in after...quite literally several months. Missed talking to you all, so ended up joining the Discord in the meantime.
