December Community Thread!


The November Community thread has been moved http://forums.gtsplus.net/index.php?showtopic=73329

Hey guys! Did you all enjoy last month's thread? (: I hope so! Every month a new community thread will be made and the old one will be discarded into the archives. I don't want a super huge thread to continue to get even bigger, so I hope everyone is excited for a fresh start every month!

If you're new here then don't be shy! The community thread is the place to come and chat with fellow members of the site who share a common interest with you. Talk about whatever you want, whether it's GPX related or something going on in your personal life, just be sure to read the rules first before posting. There's always someone on the forums to read and respond to your posts, so chat away and maybe you'll meet some great people!

RulesMonthly Raffle

Nominations are now gone, and I'm using post count to determine how many entries you have into the raffle. The first 19 posts you have will count as one entry, and every ten after that will count as an extra. Think of it as the first number of your post count is how many entries you have. To see what your post count is, click on the number of replies any certain thread has. Nothing else on the site will influence the amount of entries you receive, so if you'd like a chance to win, then post here frequently!

The raffle is what chooses who gets to choose what's in next month's egg distribution. There are no other site advantages other than that, and even then the whole site gets a chance at that Pokémon that you chose!

December Egg Distribution!


How to get an egg from this eventIMPORTANT EVENT NOTES
  1. No, you do NOT have to be online at the time I am sending out eggs.
  2. These eggs do NOT show up in the Lab for the event. They are sent out randomly.
  3. There is ONE set shiny for each Pokémon, but every other egg has a regular chance of being shiny.
  4. If you obtain ONE of the eggs from this event, you will NOT be able to obtain another one from this same event. This means if you get an egg on day 1 of this event, you can't get an event egg from any other day during this event. By the way, abandoning an event egg does nothing. So if you get one you might as well keep it and be happy.
  5. If we find any accounts being made just to get eggs from the event then they will be immediately banned along with your main.
  6. If you were a winner of the raffle, your chosen Pokémon will be spawned into your party on the day of the event. It won't be forced shiny, but there's always a small chance just like any other egg! This will not count as an event egg and you can still receive one from the event.
  7. There is no guarantee that you'll receive an egg. There have been about 3k users online daily and there are only 1,750 eggs going out, so that at least gives you a little more than a 50% chance at getting something.
  8. Eggs chosen will not be available to pick from again for 3 months. If x egg was in the January egg distribution, then it can not be chosen again until April.
  9. The event runs at 4 p.m. server time.
Event dates and what's being handed out

December. Aaaah, wtf. Well, it's an important month because I get to look forward to Christmas as well as my anniversary. It'll be four years. Woo!

I wonder which exploration I'll do first. Hmmmmmm.

This month is going to be fantastic right?

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 1 2015, 12:02 AM

Can't believe it's December already! It's lovely to see this site grow and become active again, and hopefully we can keep it going through next year too ^_^.gif

I'm interested to see this Valencian Oddish! Might go for Entei/Suicune/Raikou in the raffle and explorations, that is if I even finish DotW by the end of the month pinch.gif

And also? It's too bad Raikou wasn't ALSO a winner. {Is it even available, though? Don't have my Distribution WordPad open quite yet.}

Here's hoping to a month filled with tons of fun (and tons of shinies :P)
Seriously everyone, thanks for making this place the awesome (and hilarious) community that it is! Also honestly I might just get myself another Entei this month. He is one of my favorite legendaries after all! :~)

A Sh. Prize Voucher for a "Valencia Oddish" was found in my inventory, I'm assuming that be the prize...? Haven't activated it yet, so... it's anyone's guess as to what it looks like- good luck!

I wonder how good this month will be here on GPX! I certainly hope my December will be so much better than the rest of my year lol. And yay for new novelty! I can't wait to see the pretty thing

I'm really happy! I managed to get both Litleo and Cubone! Cubone hatched today so i'm pretty darn pleased with that!
konata.gif now i just gotta decide what special expeditions to embark on this month. I can go on three out of four of them, so i just need to hem and haw about them. I got an event egg last month, so i'm pretty surprised and happy about that! maybe i'll get another egg this time around. crossing my fingers for jirachi because i have a soft spot for that legend!

I'm glad they won too so we have better draft picks, but I do want to know where that flag was before the play started.

i wanted the draft pick too but we weren't swept by the browns so moral victory

here's the play for anyone who cares:

Spoiler (click to showhide)



The reason for no flag is because there was no encroachment. The snap didn't go off when he was past the LOS. It would have been encroachment if #41 (Anthony Levine) caused one of the blockers on the line to false start, but they didn't false start so no encroachment either (and i know this rule EXTREMELY well because Michael Oher was fucking fantastic at knowing when an encroachment penalty was coming). Therefore, no flag.

Posted by: H1Z1 Dec 1 2015, 12:18 AM

I like how that coverage there even has the almost encroachment.

Posted by: Sladin5Ever Dec 1 2015, 12:19 AM

Oh man I can never decide which Holiday exploration to start first. It would make better sense to do 12 Days since there's so much leveling and stuff, but then doing it later makes it easier to grab the pokes you need. Augh, decisions decisions

*EDIT* I ended up doing Secret of Christmas since its the shortest and I can get it done in a day

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Raffle rules say that since you won, it'll be spawned directly into your party and that you have a chance at winning a second egg during the event.

Anywho, woohoo, first of the month! Of course, this means exam time for me crying.gif But I'll be on break December 10th, so that's something to look forward to. I've been playing too much Super Mystery Dungeon as of late-- I really like it.

In other news, I could use a bit of help with this guy: http://r.gpx.plus/YaCZV

That is correct. However, Vande has a chance to get THREE Suicune eggs this month without using a Voucher: 1 for winning the right to call an egg for the distribution {Party spawned}, 1 for getting a second distribution egg {From the 350} and 1 from the Exploration.

Happy December btw~ very tired cause as much of a fangirl I am, stayed up until Rana V4's release<3 7 weeks till I can buy her...

Looking forward to all things you guys have planned for this month. And it's great to be able to yet again participate in this type of thread!

Now that you mention it, I wonder if it's Mistilil, because of it being mistletoe, and the mention of romance strengthens my guess.

And Iron Giant Gundam Al Elric needs lots of Chesto berries, so please help it out.

I'll be doing the musketeer one and the Victini one because I hadn't done that one in a while. Then it's the two Christmas ones.

So, it's December sad.gif where did all the time go? I have until the 14th to finish my last paper, after that it's only my master thesis and me for the next six months noes.gif I'm kind of afraid x)

On the site I'm planning to do the Celebi exploration first, since I haven't done that one yet, and then will do the catdog trio exploration again for Suicune or Raikou (already got Entei from my first run).

For the egg distribution I definitely want to try for Jirachi!

What are y'all going for? grin.gif

Nice, the two dogs I need are being given away. happy.gif
I guess I'll go for Cobalion first then I'll start the legendary dog to see which I still need(If I manage to get lucky).

Mystery 1 is definitely Regice. I don't know about mystery 2, maybe the Oddish?

Posted by: Dr Electric Dec 1 2015, 06:01 AM

Happy December everyone! The year is dying so fast, isn't it?

Valencian Oddish sprite looks cool, so I hope hatches soon. happy.gif

Yay for the Legendary beast explo. I'll embarking on it for sure. The second one maybe either Victini or Trio of Trials. The Christmas ones look nice too. This month will keep me pretty engaged, I guess.

December 5th looks like Regice. Second mystery is definitely Mistilil. I think I'll go for Jirachi this month (if I remember to keep my party spot open, that is).

I hope that I'm pretty active this month as well. Thank you everyone for taking care of me and I hope we get along well. You guys rock! woot.gif


Posted by: Luneon Dec 1 2015, 06:14 AM

Thanks to the multipliers I'm only 25 lvs away from completing this task whee~

Don't think I'll do any other explorations till this one is done because I don't feel like doing this one anytime soon after I complete it.

Hence the excitement for Jirachi and Suicune wink.gif

Yay I managed to get one of my own submitted trinkets, they're both rarity 1 but the other one is exclusive to wulfenite so I'll have to wait a bit until someone puts it up for trade.

Posted by: Asbel Lhant Dec 1 2015, 07:31 AM

I cannot believe that it is December already, this year flew by. It definitely had its ups and downs, but I'll be SO glad when this year is over. It'll be my birthday on the 19th of this month, I really don't want to turn another year older XD.

Going to definitely start the exploration for Virizion, it is the only one of the trio I don't have. I was a bit of a slacker when it came to explorations, but this year I've actually done a fair chunk of them. The only other legends I need are Azelf and Tornadus from explorations(and Arceus, but we won't go there just yet tongue.gif).

Posted by: SilverPT Dec 1 2015, 07:41 AM

I'll aim for Jirachi regarding the egg event. None of the others please me and I already have their egg entry. :/ And I was hoping for achievements as a Christmas gift. Oh well. Let's see what are the surprises we're getting.

Posted by: eevee64 Dec 1 2015, 07:44 AM

Valencian Oddish is so adorable cat.gif I really need to finish my Winter Vulpix shiny hunt so I can actively hunt some other novelties.

Now that it's eggnog season I went out to go find some today. I had to go to four different supermarkets until I found one that had eggnog in stock. They were all too slow in setting up their Christmas displays :P But at least I've got it now cat.gif

Work called me and said they want me to start on Thursday! I'm happy now I'll be able to earn a few dollars over the summer break happy.gif

Posted by: Manah Dec 1 2015, 07:53 AM

Sooo many explorations. Looks like I'm not going to start my next Arceus run for a while. xD

Not sure which egg I should go for, probably Suicune since I have to skip this exploration again. Why is it always paired with two more important ones?

But this little guy still stands between me and all those explorations. Could you feed him Rawst berries please?

The last good novel that I read was more than a year ago. I'm more into short stories now because I can't sacrifice that lot of time when the novel is at its end (and where the thrill starts). The last good movie that I've seen was The Martian and it was absolutely terribly fantastic.


Posted by: Mamanator Dec 1 2015, 09:33 AM

The SWSH prizes are making their rounds I read. *thumbs up* Sweet! I'm liking the sound of it and will be excited to see what they look like. Speaking of what they look like, maybe I'll use this month (once I've finished the necessary explorations) to use up some of my saved Shiny Vouchers. *smirk* I've been hoarding them for so long so... maybe, just maybe, it's time to turn them in and create some eggs and Pokemon for myself.

My hunt for Cubone continues on from the SWSH. I'm at egg 389 and counting. At least Buziel came through for me though so I was able to score the SWSH prize voucher and I just purchased a spare. Always I have the hope that I'll come across a male and female novelty. Or, at the very least, a shiny one. Pretty much that has yet to happen though.

Hm. I like the choices our raffle winners chose this month. It's going to make waiting for the final two days quite difficult. But I oh so much wanna see what those mystery eggs could be. So I'll have to keep track of my party and see if I can score one of those two. But if I forget, the known Pokemon are also very cool choices so... nice! Thank you, Vibrancy, Shaoo, and Vande! Thank you very much!

I also concur with the thought that the last egg, the second mystery egg, is the Mistilil. So it's just the first one that has me wondering.

QUOTE(Serefin)

Actually, yes! I recently saw the final installment of The Hunger Games and THOROUGHLY enjoyed it! I'm also excited to see the latest Star Wars movie and... isn't there a new Avengers coming out? Or is that one just Captain America? Either or works for me. While Creed also looks good, I can wait to Netflix that one. At least Stallone is not entering the boxing ring for this one. At least, it looks like they're smart enough to say no to that! As for books... I'm knee deep into my favorite author's latest, Finder's Keepers. When you pick up an original Stephen King (I'm talking Carrier or Cujo) and then you pick up his current works... it's awe inspiring to see how much he's grown! I just love this guy!!!!

I was kind of thinking of Mamoswine for that first egg, given the clue that it came about during an ice age. Who knows? Maybe they did something special? *shrugs* I'd be ok with Regice, too. Heck. A free egg is a free egg which is another chance for a shiny, right? Unless it's the legendary and comes to me. Then its chances of being shiny just reduced to a negative number. LOL

Sorry to hear about the stress of finals. I hope my youngest gets through them well enough. Her first year in high school and she had a rough couple of months for a while. At least she's beginning to turn her harder courses around so - yay! But really... she's in high school... and her English teacher marks her current grade as a "P"?!? Really? "P"? I'm presuming that means Passing; I've just never heard of high school using those grades. And yeah. I'm sure it isn't a "D". Maybe he hit the wrong keyboard key? LOL

Wulfenites winning again is a real downer, boo. What's even the point of getting excited for a SWSH if Raven's only going to ruin it with his bragging? ._.
Raffle is nice though, since I don't have Suicune. If I can't get that, I can do the exploration for it anyways.
Anyways, happy December - I'm going to go back to studying crying.gif

I recently finished The Book of Deacon, which is apparently the first part of a series or trilogy and despite the reviews on Amazon/Goodreads, I enjoyed it enough that I'm considering buying the next one. It has a few pacing issues in my opinion, but it was a good read while waiting around at a craft show.

The other book I finished was Plot & Structure, which has a typo near the end that made me laugh: "campaign manager having an affair with the mayor's window". It was quite the informative and useful read.

Ick, it just hit me that I have surgery in two weeks. Of course, this is also during finals weeks, so I've been trying to prepare my students as best as I can, which is difficult when they insist on getting 1 out of 100 points on exams.

Oh woah! A teacher! Thank you for that profession choice, Bladed Darkness. Sorry to hear about the upcoming surgery; I hope that it will be straight forward and the recovery time will be short so that you'll be back to full speed in no time. The good thing about a GPX habit? You can do it sitting down or lying down. wink.gif

Typos in printed books for purchase really irk me, too. I mean, I know I'm not the best in grammar or what not, but sheesh! Some times the typos that escape the people PAID to sit there and CATCH those typos really grinds my gears. >:

My Valencian Oddish just hatched and it's pretty cool. I'd like to evolve it to see how Valencian Bellosom looks like.

@Bladed Darkness Hope the surgery isn't anything major and you recover soon.

@Mamanator I find typos pretty interesting in a way. Not only I get an opportunity to guess what actually it might have been, typos may really change the context, as Bladed Darkness said regarding the mayor's "window". XD

I know you're right and I should just laugh them off. I guess it just gets to me when, for my work, there have been Board members that criticize my drafts of the meeting minutes and get all worked up over no commas or the wrong word inserted and not picked up on (like window as opposed to widow) because Spell Check didn't see anything wrong with it. So when I see how the editors of these books fall down on the job it just gets to me. Ah well. Guess I need more practice with letting things go and finding the humor in it as opposed to. *blush*

Actually, yes! I recently saw the final installment of The Hunger Games and THOROUGHLY enjoyed it! I'm also excited to see the latest Star Wars movie and... isn't there a new Avengers coming out? Or is that one just Captain America? Either or works for me. While Creed also looks good, I can wait to Netflix that one. At least Stallone is not entering the boxing ring for this one. At least, it looks like they're smart enough to say no to that! As for books... I'm knee deep into my favorite author's latest, Finder's Keepers. When you pick up an original Stephen King (I'm talking Carrier or Cujo) and then you pick up his current works... it's awe inspiring to see how much he's grown! I just love this guy!!!!


Age of Ultron came this year, it wouldn't make sense to have another one next year (especially since it wasn't "Age of Ultron Part 1"). happy.gif

I forgot as well until I checked to see if Gloom still evolved into Vileplume the same way. I didn't even see Bellosom when I scrolled down to see what the new novelty was on my Pokedex until I saw the two options Gloom had. I decided to have him evolve into Vileplume as it was raining and I wanted to see if the one I bred would be a female.
Just waiting for the sunny weather now.

Still running through king of the temple or whatever the Regigigigigigsduifgesgas exploration is. Need motivation.. lack of it. Ha. Think I'll be doing the legendary Beasts this month and whatever else I feel like doing.

I'm so excited to have at least gotten one of the SWSH shinies: Litleo! My first SWSH and my first shiny! I'm kind of bummed I evolved it, though. Oh well.

I just can't believe it's December already. It will be my older son's 3rd Christmas and my new son's 1st Christmas and our first family Christmas ever. We've always been traveling to other family members' houses, which are fun, but my rambunctious toddler requires complete child-proofing and nobody believes me until he's hanging from a chandelier. (Which apparently only gives ME heart attacks, everyone else laughs and compliments his gross motor skills. shakefist.gif).

I hate winter. The cold gets in my joints and bones and I just can't get warm. I'm facing my first East Coast winter since I was 6. So homesick for Texas.

Thank goodness I have Pokemon to distract me. I'm going to make my sons start out with Gen 1. laughing.gif

I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend! (Or a good weekend if you aren't from US.)

December will be quieter op[efully now that the family holiday was done early this year. Which is good because I have a commission I need to finish and some other stuff to work on.

After talking with everyone, it looks like I'm going to have to see Krampus by myself. This'll be odd since I've never gone to the theater alone before.

Congrats on your first shiny mon! Having first shiny actually makes any player gleeful and confident. I remember how I hatched an Emolga as my first shiny. And surprisingly, I've hatched shiny mons only in SWSH month. XD So I guess no shiny this month. xP.gif

...Wow. My boyfriend's nephew and niece are 7 and 4 and I don't think they've ever done THAT...but they've gotten darn close. Lol. It always amazes me how energetic kids can be. I think of myself as pretty energetic, but phew!

Also, Pokemon is totally a family game. My brother got my mom started on LeafGreen shortly before Thanksgiving and she loves it. <3

I had rotten luck this SWSH as per usual! Buizel took me over 400 eggs and I had a day and a half for Cubone. Didn't have high hopes for him. Eh. But on the plus side, I hatched a shiny Past Misdreavus last night! Spoopy Plate get. Now I just have Future Shuppet to go, and then I need to either start Mega hunting or continuing to work on Undaunted (I'll have 2 left after I get Future Shuppet).

I really enjoy the super hero series, but worry that Iron Man won't be super any longer. Though, I suppose, that's ok. There's always Hot Pepper now.... lol.gif

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Raffle rules say that since you won, it'll be spawned directly into your party and that you have a chance at winning a second egg during the event.


That is correct. However, Vande has a chance to get THREE Suicune eggs this month without using a Voucher: 1 for winning the right to call an egg for the distribution {Party spawned}, 1 for getting a second distribution egg {From the 350} and 1 from the Exploration.

Ok, now that I've read through all the pages.

I'm glad some of you guys want Jirachi! I just think he's too precious, haha. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to try for two or go for one of the dogs... two of them in a month would be neat. Congrats to Vande and Shaoo, too!

Good luck to everyone who still has school, I'm right there with you. Though I just figured out even if I get a 50 on my last two tests I'd still pass, so that takes some of the pressure off, lol. I think when school's over though I'm literally going to sleep for about three days. It'll be great.

I got a voucher for the Valencian Oddish since I want Vileplume and Bellosom, and I'm shiny hunting it because I'm a glutton for punishment. I hope the shiny is neat! I really like it... it's subtle, but it's still cool.

So sweet! There is "another" one coming out in 2016. I don't mind too terribly that they are coming out with one in 2016. I'm sure they'll push it back to May though; trying to win that summer blockbuster placement. So long as they took their time and did it right then a movie a year is ok.

The only problem is the other professors keep trying to kick me out of the lounge while I'm eating thinking I'm a student.

I was really hoping this would be finished by the time I got back from my Ma's, but that obviously hadn't happened. It needs a few more.

I got a couple of CDs for my mother for her Christmas gift. She really wanted the West Side Story soundtrack and she was reallllllly subtle about it. My sister suggested we would put them in a shoe box with an old pair of shoes and a bunch of tissue to trick her.

Another work day has come and gone, thank heavens that I'm done for the day, I'm exhausted. The plan is to soak for a bit in the tub, see if it'll help my sore back somewhat.

Ugh, I am sooooo not ready for Christmas this year, I've been struggling a bit financially due to bills and whatnot. I currently have 10 dollars in my bank account crying.gif. Last year I had everyone's presents bought before October. So far, I've only bought Christmas presents for my niece, I have nothing for my parents or my sister. My dad keeps insisting that he doesn't want anything, but I'll feel bad if I don't get him something. My mom and sister are a bit easier to shop for, but I'll probably just give them all money.

I haven't read any books in a while, but the last movie I watched was Jurassic World happy.gif. I've been watching videos on youtube more than I've watched movies, especially Undertale videos. I really want to get the game, but my laptop cannot handle games sad.gif. It likes to overheat and crash, so I only use it to watch youtube videos/browse the web.

It's been aaaaaaggggggggeeeeees since I last read Bag of Bones. I remember enjoying it thoroughly though. have you ever read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon? It's very different and way cool!

I love it when King does these "companion" books. I think he started doing those ever since Desperation and... and.... oh figs! ... Give me a sec.... The Regulators. I love it! My English teacher from way back when told me, too, that King used to love using the same name for his villain (Flagg). I never realized that until I began reading the Gunslinger series. That!

@Nostalgic River Shadow I want Yoshi's Wooly World and a potato masher. I'm trying to think of some other stuff, but I buy most things I want right away, lmfao, so no one can ever get me gifts. Money is always good, I wouldn't complain about getting some of that.

@Mamanator I haven't read much Stephen King (I have The Stand, and I read a few hundred pages and then stopped, kjrgjk), but if you like horror I really recommend Clive Barker. His stuff is absolutely insane, I love it.

Since 2013 that Marvel releases 2 movies, it's pretty normal that we're getting another one. And Civil War already has a theatrical release scheduled, but it's different in some countries, that's why I said that. happy.gif


It'll be three after next year thanks to Spidey. happy.gif
I'm really hoping Mysterio finally gets his chance at the movie spotlight. Kraven too, but Mysterio is my favorite villain

Last time I checked Spidey is coming in 2017. In fact, 2016 is going to be the last year with only 2 movies. 2017, 2018 and 2019 all have 3 movies planned to be released.

Any tips on getting a higher score for the Mega Steelix competition? I threw in a DD but that can only help you out so much. Plus there's the falling steel blocks. I would use Aerodactyl, but that won't do much.

I'm not hoping for much, I'd like to get Xenoblade Chronicles X and maybe some money. A few pairs of fuzzy socks will also do ^_^.gif.

I'm hoping that my copy of Tales of Zestiria comes soon, as it was supposed to be an early birthday/Christmas present. I'm just gonna hope it didn't get lost in the mail seeing as I can't track it dry.gif. Gotta love the Canada Post website.

At a dreaded feeding task and this guy needs some Chesto Berries if you can help:

ayyy nice. I still have mixed feelings about X but so far it looks alright. Original is still better though

Personally I'm only hoping to get Cloud's DLC for Smash. Don't really want anything else and if I did I doubt I'd get it anyway. :/

From what I've been reading, Just Cause 3 has some worrying optimization problems. :/

Money crying.gif Aside from that mainly video games. My sister and I usually buy a game we can both play and pay half each as like a Christmas present for each other. We're thinking about Xenoblade Chronicles X. I'm also hoping for a gift voucher to put towards the Fire Emblem Fates limited edition when it comes out next year.

Maybe a bit of money to get my broken 3DS fixed. It's just a part of the case but having Nintendo repair it costs ~90€ which I absolutely can't afford. The part I need is 10-15€ on ebay, so unless the one store around here is considerably cheaper than Nintendo (if they even do it at all), I'm out of luck until May or so.

Do you have the whole Chronicles Trilogy? AND the Lost Chronicles trilogy?

And I've been re-reading The Wheel of Time, myself. Back up to 4/5ths of the way through the fifth book.

Posted by: Aragarthiel Dec 1 2015, 09:01 PM

I'm hoping to get clothes and books, mostly. My wardrobe consists of shirts that are all getting pretty torn up and pants that no longer fit, and in the last five years or so I've only gotten two new books, both short and not good enough to read again. Books are kind of hard to shop for for me though, my tastes are a bit picky and for some reason people always end up getting me the second or third book in a series I've never read.

Posted by: Sladin5Ever Dec 1 2015, 09:15 PM

I would like to have a fairly big external drive for my PS4, but money is too tight this year, so I'll have to go with something cheaper. I do want the next 3 books for Lemony Snickets and Jurassic World, but that's all I can think of right now (I can't ask for anything childish like a Lego video game bc my dad's a douche :'))

Congrats on your first shiny mon! Having first shiny actually makes any player gleeful and confident. I remember how I hatched an Emolga as my first shiny. And surprisingly, I've hatched shiny mons only in SWSH month. XD So I guess no shiny this month. xP.gif


Thanks! I just discovered this site in mid-October and have been having a blast. I even got my neighbor to join up. I don't think she did the SWSH, though.

I just can't believe it's December already. It will be my older son's 3rd Christmas and my new son's 1st Christmas and our first family Christmas ever. We've always been traveling to other family members' houses, which are fun, but my rambunctious toddler requires complete child-proofing and nobody believes me until he's hanging from a chandelier. (Which apparently only gives ME heart attacks, everyone else laughs and compliments his gross motor skills. shakefist.gif).

Thank goodness I have Pokemon to distract me. I'm going to make my sons start out with Gen 1. laughing.gif

...Wow. My boyfriend's nephew and niece are 7 and 4 and I don't think they've ever done THAT...but they've gotten darn close. Lol. It always amazes me how energetic kids can be. I think of myself as pretty energetic, but phew!

Also, Pokemon is totally a family game. My brother got my mom started on LeafGreen shortly before Thanksgiving and she loves it. <3

I had rotten luck this SWSH as per usual! Buizel took me over 400 eggs and I had a day and a half for Cubone. Didn't have high hopes for him. Eh. But on the plus side, I hatched a shiny Past Misdreavus last night! Spoopy Plate get. Now I just have Future Shuppet to go, and then I need to either start Mega hunting or continuing to work on Undaunted (I'll have 2 left after I get Future Shuppet).


LOL -- Sliiiiiight exaggeration. He did quite a number on my mother-in-law's church before and during her wedding, he climbed into her china cabinet, he fell down the stairs when they said they'd watch him so my hubs and I could have our first date afternoon in months, he tried to pull down the videographer equipment at the reception . . . And he does all of it with a charming smile and apparently innocent joy.

When it comes to introducing him to Pokemon, my main concern is the safety of the game system. My original Gameboy is still in perfect shape, as is my Gameboy Color. I really don't want him ruining those. happy.gif

I don't know how many of you use Tumblr or have Tumblr's New Xkit, but they added a new Pokes extension, which let's you collect Pokemon that appear on your dashboard. Its really fun to see the pixel drawings randomly. Just figured I'd share a Pokemon-related thing with you all happy.gif

Posted by: xhig Dec 1 2015, 11:17 PM

The only things I really want this year are tickets to Denver Comic Con and maybe an Xbox One. The second one probably won't happen because I got in a mild car accident this past month, and that cost my parents about $700. I can dream, though.

A lot of people seem to be vehemently enraged about my desire for an Xbox One. I mainly hear arguments like "pc master race." The fact of the matter is that I don't care. My computer sucks, but it works, so I don't feel like I need a new one.

The only movies I've seen recently have been the new Hunger Games movie, Fletch, and Brooklyn. Mockingjay Part 2 is somewhat overrated and there isn't really a plot. Fletch is hilarious. Brooklyn is amazing.

There is a book I want to read, but I can't find it. It's called X and the City, and it provides mathematical models for urban development. It's in my house...somewhere.

Happy to be back! I have no idea why I didn't come to the community thread for the second half of last month. I did hatch multiple shinies (Buizel, Cubone, and Bagon)!

I just really want a drawing pad and some Amazon gift cards. I do a lot of shopping online lately. Plus I want to get back into drawing, but I want to try something different.

I actually just downloaded XKit to try out that feature and found a couple of Pokemon already. I think my first one was Doublade.

No idea what I want for Christmas this year. Getting the roof done by the council from today. Weather not due to be very nice. So that done with no hitches works for me.

I summoned a Rayquaza after a long time and its description in the lab had a weird font. Is it an error or mods helping us out to get Misquaza. Whatever it may be, it is very much helpful and I'd be happier if this is extend to other summons.

I don't have many of his books and I'd have to search my archives of paperbacks to see which ones I do have. He wigs me out far more than my idol, King. I don't think there's any line Barker won't cross.

The one piece of advice I give everyone who never read The Stand... don't read it when your sick!! *eek*!!

And I'm fine with that; unless, of course, the girls have already lost them and they won't be under the tree. Grrr! But has anyone else here heard the jewelry store ads where the owner's are speaking with the husbands and they're all like "well, I'm getting her a new dishwasher" and then they call the wife and she's all like "what!!?? a dishwasher??!! seriously?!!!" Well. If my hubby wanted to get me a new dishwasher... I'd definitely show him my appreciation for that. Because the one we have is the one the home warranty company replaced our original one when it died. And this one? Kind of lousy. And the handle keeps sticking, too. It is a number of years old, but still! It wasn't that great when we got it. *sigh* I'd also really like new curtains and black out drapes for the front window. Those curtains are currently as old as the house itself. *shudders*

So, I was listening to Happy Christmas (by John Lenon) and Do they know it's Christmas? (by Band Aid) and I was really moved. I don't think I'll be able to look at Christmas as a joyful event anymore. I don't think I've ever thought about the underprivileged ever during Christmas. I wish that all those who are unable to celebrate it find joy during Christmas. The emotions are seriously overflowing. crying.gif

I noticed that too! I wonder if it's a glitch, or if it'll be like that forever. If it's forever, summoning will be a lot easier.

Huh. That's weird. I ordered a Tee shirt off of TeeFury a while back. And got an email the other day saying that it had been shipped. I went to the tracking option a few minutes ago, so I could see when it was due to arrive, and it said that it was delivered yesterday. But I don't have it yet. So, I'm hoping it arrives today, but if it DOESN'T, does anyone have an idea on what I could do about that?

Posted by: Walking On Sunshine Dec 2 2015, 02:07 PM

I just finished up Victini, so I guess the Twelve Days of Christmas one is next for me.

Was the text similar to the one for Rayquaza when that novelty became available? If so, it's a pretty nice way to tell whether or not we find our summons.

About emotional music, pretty much any song with a powerful message, whether it be about encouragement or something depressing, really gets me sometimes. Like a bunch of people as of late, it's "Hello" by Adele that hits me.

Rayquaza has been like that for a while, the Ho-Oh I summoned three days ago didn't. The only thing I can think of is that it's only legendaries that can be mega-evolved by something that's explicitly not an actual Mega Stone, since my November 24 Latios had the normal font too. Not that this makes any sense.

I actually used an Enigma Stone afterwards which turned out to be a Latias...which had normal font. So maybe your theory is right. Really odd no matter what. Need someone to summon a Groudon wink.gif

If you don't have a tracking number for the shipment I would contact the company and let them know that the tee shirt did not arrive and that you'd like to know when they plan to ship a second shirt to you. If they give you grief I'd say "fine. Then cancel my order and refund my money."

I placed an order through Rose Wholesale for some dresses for the girls. Paid over $20 for their "expedited shipping". They took my money and deducted it from my checking account quick enough, but 2 weeks later they sent me an email saying that the dresses were "out of stock" and the "unusual delay" would not ship until 12/1. This was 14 days after the initial order. I'm not paying expedited shipping on a company I have no history with for dresses that might ship a whole week later. -_-2.gif So I told them to cancel the order. They claimed that they would refund the money but that it might take the bank anywhere from five to seven days. I checked this morning. The bank statement showed the reversal on the cancellation day. -_-2.gif I really don't trust that company whatsoever.

I hope your company proves more reliable. I'm fairly certain that 9 out of 10 websites will reship the order if they cannot verify delivery for you.

Good luck!

@Mamanator: That does sound like a very dodgy shop experience you had. At least you managed to get the money back, in all fairness. Some companies are very quick to take money, but very reluctant to return it.

I would think that the font had been changed since Primal Kyogre had been released quite recently, so they changed the font whilst they were there. Maybe after a short while, the font will be different for Groudon, Latias and Latios as well for the sake of making summoning easier.

Posted by: shadowlarvitar Dec 2 2015, 04:17 PM

Whoops, I completely forgot the event for today. Oh well, I needed Jirachi but I was waiting for her exploration to get the data then. I'll just pick Suicune when I finish this exploration and get Entei sometime later.

Just waiting for the shop to get a Fire stone, I used Purchase Power too much recently so I'm limiting myself to that pass power.

Posted by: Cherubi Problematique Dec 2 2015, 04:28 PM

Yay, I got a Jirachi egg just like I wanted grin.gif thanks for choosing it, Vibrancy!

Just to chime in on an earlier topic, I'm a huge fan of Stephen King too grin.gif The Dark Tower and The Stand are my favourites, but I like pretty much everything, apart from the newer stuff ... I don't know, but Under the Dome wasn't my cup of tea and I didn't really follow up on him after that.

Right now my so and me are reading the Martian together (we always have about 30 minutes before going to sleep that we call "our half hour" where we just talk about anything but serious thing, so no talk about how to pay the rent and such). We used to read books together, taking turns reading aloud when we first became a couple. We stopped after a while but we revived the tradition with this book grin.gif so no spoilers about the film please ;D

It took me almost an hour to realize a) I had a Jirachi egg and b) it was from a giveaway.

My dad's into Stephen King more than I am, but I like his stuff still. On Writing was a good read and I read The Shining for my high school gothic fiction class. I also read (well, skimmed) Carrie a bit ago... should give it another read-through. I used to be such a bookworm but now I can't really get in the mood to just sit down with a book. I don't know what it is.

In term's of today's event...

"I'm going to get Suicune!" I decided yesterday.

I left my party empty and now have a Jirachi. Oh well, that works too.

I also am able to embark on the goddamn Arceus exploration for the first time in like 8 months because I forged a plate for the first time yesterday.

Anyway, the point of this post is plz feed Dedenne.

I decided on Suicune for the giveaway. It has a pretty shiny anyway. Today was pretty productive. I went through Babysitting Adventure and I'm now doing the Twelve Days of Christmas. I also got my last Splash Shard, so that's another plate out of the way.

On Shuffle I tried the Mega Steelix competition again with a DD and an Attack Power. Ho-Oh + Attack Power + Power of 5+ = crazy amount of damage.

So I forged all the Ancient Plates and just finished my last run of Death of the World.

I'm hunting Groudon right now and the font is different for it, too. I think it's only Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza that do it though. It started right after the server transfer, I think, and I remember seeing it reported before in Bugs and nothing was done about it, so maybe it's supposed to be that way?

I saw a discussion about Stephen King, I've read a little over half of his books and have realized that there are A LOT of small details shared throughout his stories. I love how weird they can get sometimes, where they make no sense at all but you keep reading because you really have no clue what happens next. I read most of The Stand, but had to return it to my high school lirary before I could finish it, but IT was a really god book too. Much creepier than the movie (although much more adult-themed as well).

I am really hyped for this. I've been waiting for YEARS for a conclusion to Samurai Jack. I know there were rumors floating around about a movie, but that never really got off the ground, I guess. It's gonna be a bit weird without Mako voicing Aku, but it's not like they have much regarding that.

Super glad I got a Jirachi. I was hoping a bit for Entei or Suicune, but Jirachi is cool too. smile.gif

Posted by: Dr Electric Dec 2 2015, 08:49 PM

Congrats Venusaur King for completing all the plates! woot.gif

I summoned a Heatran yesterday so it was normal while the Rayquaza was italicized. I thought it was only Rayquaza which was given special status due to Misquaza but I was wrong, I guess. Probably the weather trio are given special fonts for the sake of Novelty/Primal Conversion maybe. However this seems so off tracked as Primal Conversion is as good as Mega evolution so Lati duo should've also got this favor. I don't know, maybe a bug or something deliberate (and complicated).

Some berry for this illusion master please?

HYPE, cannot wait for this! I LOVED Samurai Jack when it used to air and I was quite sad that the channel I used to watch it on never got the last episodes sad.gif. I might have to see if I can find a way to watch them later, so I can give myself a refresher of the show.

~

Yay totally happy that I got a Jirachi egg today, I kept my party open just in case. I didn't get the Yveltal I wanted last month, so at least I got the one I wanted most.

I finished A Trio of Trials today and got my Virizion, I'm glad that one is done. That Golurk berry feeding task took way too long to finish, so happy that I never have to do this exploration again. Now I'm unsure whether or not I want to go after Victini or start Tour of Illusions for a Suicune in hopes of getting a shiny unsure.gif. I'll decide sometime later, after all I still have 29 more days to start one of them.

Thank heavens tomorrow is payday, I have a ton of things to buy to at least get ahead with Christmas presents. I already have my mom taken care of, just need to get my sister and dad their gifts. They aren't getting much with my current budget, so I hope they'll be happy with what I get. It'll be nice to actually have money instead of crying at my empty wallet.

You need to find The Lost Chronicles as well. It retells the original Chronicles from alternate perspectives, You know how, in the original series, some characters branch off and return later? Lost Chronicles goes into details on what happens to those characters during the branched off time.

We are one of the same person kind of xD im Same with me but opposite. I cant stand being around guys or at least any of the guys around here. they're so rude and... how do you say idiotic nicely? not to mention ive had a few bad experiences with guys my self which makes me hate them even if ive never met them. though i still try to be nice but i stand a good 3 -5 feet away.
Ive never had anyone think i was flirting with them except for my friend who is (bi/les) but i always picked fun fights with her x)

Also, if it's no problem to post, I also had a question regarding the Poke Hunt...
Just how many "points" does a starter being female yield? Would a male Bulbasaur with 148 IVs be my best option, or my female Bulba with 125?
I'm really just hoping for rank one, sorry sorry! :P

Posted by: Jade Dec 3 2015, 12:03 AM

That 148 bulba should do well to get you first rank as long as you fully evolve him (even better if you can mega evolve). Though you know don;t trust me i sometimes still have trouble getting 1st xD;

Also I was wondering why everyone was saying mistilli would be the choice. And then I realized... mistletoe.

That 148 bulba should do well to get you first rank as long as you fully evolve him (even better if you can mega evolve). Though you know don;t trust me i sometimes still have trouble getting 1st xD;

Also I was wondering why everyone was saying mistilli would be the choice. And then I realized... mistletoe.

It's a good thing you guys don't like me for my brains.

I might just try the 148 Bulba! Also sadly I cannot Mega Evolve it sad.gif
(I only have two stones because I'm the scrubbiest of all scrubs)


There isn't any need to mega evolve it, mega evolution doesn't add to any "point" in the pokehunt. Also, you are no scrub, even I lack Venusaurite and I don't know how many else of those stones.

I should probably hatch some grass types for the Poke Hunt. These no-multiplier days are killing me, though. Why isn't everything ready to hatch in 10 minutes? ):

So... anyone know how to recruit Kecleon in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon? I have like 670 species befriended, I'm Grand Master rank and I'm at the point where I have to scrape together missions. Asshole still won't join me. The other shopkeepers did ages ago. Please don't tell me I have to incur his wrath in a dungeon.

That being said, I'm having a ton of fun with PSMD. It's like a strictly upgraded PMD2 which was great to begin with. Although now it's kinda easy because I buffed the hell out of Water Shuriken and now just destroy everything that doesn't have Water Absorb... heheheh.

Well, a 148 IV starter MIGHT net Rank 1, but it's also likely that it will just be only a Rank 2. iirc, people have said that starters, with their 5120 egg steps, need over 150 IV to be certain of a Rank 1.

And levels do nothing for ranking, so once you have it fully evolved, you can submit it. Getting it to 100 doesn't help its standing.

I'd agree with RicFule that Venusaur at 148 IV is on the borderline of rank 1. Also levelling it up to 100 isn't required, just complete evolution is suffice. I'd suggest you can vitamin the Venusaur up by 2-4 to 150-152. That's a sureshot rank 1 for you. happy.gif

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone. I feel completely better now. I have my strength back and can eat normally. Super paranoid about what I eat now though. We are getting ready for christmas here. Trying to get into the season for my son. Difficult since my husband is so far away but I'm making due day by day. I got him a thomas the train christmas book for preschoolers to have to read for now and a daniel tiger coloring book for his stocking. Almost got him a pee wee herman doll from the 80's at goodwill but it was stained and the pull string didn't let it talk anymore just garbles. He hugged it when I picked it up but I didn't want to spend $40 on it when it didn't work and was dirty. Maybe it will still be there in a week and it will go down in price.

I got a sky gift today and it had heart sweets and honey in it. A nice surprise. I started the secret of christmas and going to do raikou after that. Not sure about the twelve days of christmas though. I can't remember the reward to see if I want to do it or not. I also completely forgot about the giveaway and left a few slots open and wound up with a jirachi egg. I like the shiny so not that big of a deal. I wanted to go for the last one though.

Stephen King is one of my favorite authors. I really want to read his new book. The cover looks awesome. I really enjoyed IT, the tommyknockers and cell. My all time favorite is from a buick 8. I've read that one two or three times already and due for another round.

Not really related to THIS post, but there have been 49 Mega Stones released to date, out of 50. {The only missing one is Diancie's.} If you want to know how many you still need to get, go figure out how many you actually have at the moment, and subtract them from 49. I'd do it myself, but your Inventory isn't viewable by all users.

So I have started leveling up 12 Days pokes from task 1 and 2 while I work on task 3 for everyone. I'll try to remember to release them a few times for one day with a few days in between each release (so maybe 2 releases a day within a 3-4 day period)

Yeah, I have some 18-20 odd stones in inventory, so I'm way off. I'm not primarily concerned with quite a many stones except Ampharosite and OR/AS stones. Thanks for telling me. Oh, and I wasn't aware at all that my inventory was locked for others to view, so I unlocked it now. grin.gif

You could also check your Pokedex of how many you still have locked (though that wouldn't help for people who managed to grab them from teh shelter. But for people who have form changed them on their own could)

I've actually received most of my Megas from the Shelter. Some of them I still don't have the proper stones for.

That reminds me. Does anyone else remember hearing about plans to let Pokemon go back to normal forms from Mega? I remember seeing it in a thread somewhere but I can't remember where, I hope that's still being worked on. I'd like to have these Mega Stones do more than just take up space in my inventory. I don't even have them all and it's a lot of space being used.

Collapsible inventory tabs should also be a thing.

I read most of The Stand, but had to return it to my high school lirary before I could finish it, but IT was a really god book too. Much creepier than the movie (although much more adult-themed as well).




Number 19 pops up so often that it's almost scary. In my previous reads of The Dead Zone I didn't give much importance to the number Johnny picks for his big bet, but the last time it was like "oh god another nineteen". And there's also the little references and cameos. In Bag of Bones Ralph from Insomnia makes a small appearance and IT's Bill gets a mention too.

My favorites are Misery and The Green Mile, and the movies are also nice. TGM is probably the best King-based movie... along with the other two Darabont directed. Shawshank Redemption is great and the new ending for The Mist... *shudders*

It was my first day back at work today and it felt like I'd never left XD I worked there for 4 years then left at the start of this year to go to uni. They were kind enough to let me come back and work over the summer holidays. I'm so sore now though...I've got 2 more months of unpacking and moving around computers so I'll have to get used to it ^^"

I kinda regret starting DotW a couple of weeks ago. I thought I was going to be super motivated and get a good chunk of it done, but I wasn't. I want to do the Christmas explorations so hopefully I can find some clicking will power and get to them by the end of the month...I'm not sure I can bring myself to quit an exploration.

For the most part, I'm trying to not watch any trailers. I'm specifically avoid the Civil War trailer at the moment. I generally only watched trailers for movies I was probably going to see anyway, so the only thing they would do is ruin parts of the movie for me.

I'm currently wrapping the last presents and then my preparations are complete!

As for GPX+ - I just noticed how pink and purple all the eggs in my party are. o.o
I'm hunting Tyrogue and Smoochum with an unofficial Purple Kecleon hunt on the side.

I saw some people talking about their favorite novelty a couple of pages back.
For me, it's always fun to collect novelties that I sprited because it's special to me seeing my own art on the site, but I also have such a soft spot for the Clone Pokémon, Magma Totodile (that thing is super cool), Icy Horsea, Snowy Girafarig and Purple Kecleon. I'm currently hunting Alpine Meowth, it's so cute.

And oh my gosh! Talk about references! Have you read Gerald's Game? What about... let me go get the name of the other book (it has been many, many years since I've read these, so bear with me...) Dolores Claiborne? I'm pretty sure that, at a certain point in both stories, they overlap and the two main characters kind of "see" each other or hear each other... I can't recall. But man! Talk about getting goosebumps! I love it when he does that! And you're right, North Star. There was another book... oh! Wait! It was in his book about Kennedy... 11/22/63... that he again brings back a mention to IT! I was loving it when that happened! I think there are several references to his past works in that novel and, why not? It's about going back in time so.... love.gif

The premise of the movie is basically the same as the comic book source, with a few twists here and there. Disney/Marvel did a pretty good job showing the necessary ones and hiding the rest tbh.

I've been decorating the office and decided to swing by while I took a swig of some soda and just couldn't connect. This. Was the longest! Three minutes of my life. tongue.gif But if that time is true, I guess it was a lot longer for others.

I'm trying to finish the explore (just 1.4 k steps away!) and then move on to another special exploration for the month. After I finish those two then I'll be trying the Christmas exploration(s).

I'm also still searching for a GOOD Grass IV Pokemon. My current entry is a paltry 121 and, I fear, that isn't even good enough for 3rd place! Or... are you always guaranteed a spot regardless? I'm not sure, but if I can't find anybody better, I guess I'll be finding out "shortly". LOL

It wouldn't hurt to try until almost reset, as long as you have time to evolve it before the time is up. Also don't forget using some Vitamins if you feel it needs a little push. :P

I think that was the plan. That's what my plan is as well. But I don't even HAVE a placeholder if I can't find a decent one . My Party is all Eevee eggs, yesterday's event Jirachi, and an exploration pokemon. But at least, while I'm at work, the Eevee eggs can gather views and stuff, and hopefully be NEAR ready to hatch when I get home.

Nop, you don't always rank. It would be a bit unfair for someone to get rank 3 with a mon that has like, 10 IVs, right? lol.gif

In Poké Hunts with Water, Fire, Grass, Psychic, Dark, Fairy, Ice or Electric types, Eevee is usually the best choice.

I still can't find a good Grass-type. I didn't really focus on it much the past couple of days because of the explorations. I already have Grass-type Arceus, so I'm not too worried.

I've been writing part of one of my stories lately. Sometimes when I have a good idea in my brain for a long time, I just have to put it down as soon as I can.

Dolores Claiborne? I'm pretty sure that, at a certain point in both stories, they overlap and the two main characters kind of "see" each other or hear each other... I can't recall. But man! Talk about getting goosebumps! I love it when he does that! And you're right, North Star. There was another book... oh! Wait! It was in his book about Kennedy... 11/22/63... that he again brings back a mention to IT! I was loving it when that happened! I think there are several references to his past works in that novel and, why not? It's about going back in time so.... love.gif



Dolores Claiborne was my second King book, and I read Gerald's Game some months ago. It was nice to finally make sense of that scene with Dolores seeing a girl the night of the eclipse.
And apparently Lisey's Story closes the "trilogy". I want to read it but other books have higher priority xD

I love rereading a King book and finding a reference I missed before because I hadn't read the other book yet. Like Annie Wilkes mentioning the Overlook hotel, or the prep school Jack Torrance worked at getting a mention on The Dead Zone. Or all those references in the Dark Tower series.


Aaand I should make room in my party. I often forget about the distributions, but at least it usually happens when I'm not aiming for something in particular.

I'd be so happy if they made a main-series AC game for the Wii U...


I'd love a 3DS mix between ANNL and Happy home designer. Because I LOVE to decorate characters' homes, but it's frustrating they are not living in a real town; they just pop up from the ground and infinite times at the same spot. And more frustrating: I can't even decorate and have my own house D8 I'm just an employee it's sooooooooo stupid for this.
If one day there is a mix between the two games, when you can create your own town piece by piece by decorating it, help people to get their home, decorate them too, and have a part you can manage like a mayor or something. That'd be awesome!!!

Finished watching Blade Runner a couple of minutes ago. Such a great movie. It has some weird action scenes, but that line between rightfully artificial and immorally human is incredible.

Hi...I guess. I haven't posted in one of these before so sorry if I get something wrong.
Anyways, does anybody know where all these entei eggs are coming from? I got one randomly added to my party at 4PM GPX time and it says "Obtained from event". I checked the users list and noticed a lot of people seem to have gotten one, but not all of them. Does it have something to do with the November SWSH? I managed to complete it.

Speaking of that, after I got a male shiny litleo I tried to get a female one to make a pair, and while I did hatch one relatively fast it was another male shakefist.gif

It's from this month's Egg Distribution. You can read about in the second post of the thread. The SWSH prize is the Valencian Oddish voucher.

Well I'm glad if you got a different point of view haha %D I usually read bad reviews or disappointed people about this game which can became boring after a moment... I guess the best solution is to play with it sometimes when you need a distraction. It's nice that way.

I used some kind of water/vinegar solution to descale mine. It was a little while ago so I don't recall the specifics but you shouldn't pay for that. If you poke around online, you should be able to find a free solution.

I loved the number of references in the Dark Tower series as well, though the fact that it takes place through many different universes explains that well enough. I've read several of the Richard Bachman books as well, I loved the overlap between Desperation (written as King) and The Regulators (written as Bachman). http://wallippo.com/wallpaper/desperation-stephen-king-df836ed9ccc6fdc4f2d5e1cd285b8610 The initials RS tend to show up quite often as well, usually for villains, and it makes me wonder if maybe he was bullied as a child by someone with those initials or something.

I actually did a report on Stephen King in high school, it wasn't revealed until later that we had to dress up as the person we chose while presenting our reports. This was awkward for me, as I was the only person in the class who chose the opposite gender, and I had to figure out how to dress as a guy who wears jeans and a t-shirt while attending a school where jeans and a t-shirt weren't permitted forms of dress.

This is entirely off topic but has anyone read Holy Potatoes a Workshop?
It's this really goofy indie game where you work at a blacksmith and make weapons for RPG heroes and stuff. And uh. Everyone's a potato, lol.
It's really silly to most I'm sure but I loved it tons and I don't know why, just really charming in it's own dumb way I guess lol.
Also back to another topic anyone and everyone can answer....Who here has pets and what are they? I have a dog named Bee (let's see if anyone gets that reference), and a little rat named Opal who I love to death.
I plan on getting a couple more rats for her soon since it's awful for them to live alone, but, yeah, what about you guys??

So tired tonight, work was fairly busy today. We ended up getting 6 skids of freight come in, so we spent the better part of the day breaking those down and sorting them.

Just a little bit of time left before my last exam. I have some time before that, so I'm doing explorations. Including this one http://r.gpx.plus/zZVXV

I'm not sure if I want the Xenoblade game. From what I saw from the previous game, it seems to be a story driven game with a lot of sidequests. I'm not sure how okay I would be with that. I generally don't want to have to spend lots of time figuring out what kind equipment I want in a game unless I get really into it first. So anyway, I have games to play. I have started making progress in Hyrule Warriors again, being almost done with the initial Adventure Map. I have the DLC, so there is plenty of game left. I also play Splatoon, which makes for intense and frustrating moments considering my rank. So, yeah, if anyone wants to get carried upwards on the Splatoon ranked ladder, I'd be down.

Shuffle news: I'm trying Thundurus when I wake up but my Ground type team is so weak (Donphan, Phanphy and Marowak) that I felt that I need something stronger (even using items, like I'll) so I ended up playing Excadrill's stage and caught him (with 18%, but yeah). I've 96k coins at the moment, so after Monday I'll try to catch some mons and S rank some stages again. happy.gif

The original had an absolute shit-ton of sidequests(I want to say upwards of 400). Equipment is also extremely vital for later on and you get a lot of good equipment from sidequests, so you want to do a few of them. Plus if X is like the original doing sidequests and discovering areas actually gives you EXP. Xenoblade is also really story driven yeah. Certain quests don't appear until you're at a certain part and some quests are even timed, meaning you have to complete them within a certain time period and you can't progress too far in the story or they'll become inaccessible.
Anyway though I highly recommend X if it's anything like the first, which I'm assuming it is, since it's called Xenoblade Chronicles X and not something else entirely.

My mom is allergic to pets, and my college doesn't allow them (besides fish), so I'm a bit out of luck in that regard until I get my own place. I have Pokemon otherwise, though.

I do plan on getting a cat once I have my own apartment/house, but that could still be a ways off. I'll get there eventually, though. happy.gif

Gonna work on some more explorations this month. Don't think I'll try "That Burning Desire!!" again until I've completed all the available normal explorations and next month's special ones. I did get Rank 1 in this week's Poke Hunt, but I'm still getting the Cosplay Boxes, so no Shards just yet.

I don't have a pet at the moment, but I'd seriously love to have an aquarium with varieties of fishes and maybe a couple of starfishes as well. Also I'd like to have a parrot. I find parrots to be extremely elegant looking and fascinating.

@Mr. L Yup, that dog is pretty much elegant and quite cool.

Posted by: Aragarthiel Dec 4 2015, 02:50 AM

TBH I never really considered fish pets, they're more like decorations you have to feed. I would, however, love a nautilus (think Omastar). I have a cat that mostly lives outside and leaves feathers on the porch when we forget to feed her or are gone for the whole day, she was a stray from our old house that grew on us, and my husband brought her to our new house when we moved despite knowing she'd be taken care of if she stayed.

Is anyone else enjoying Pokemon Picross? It kept me from my history homework but I'm working on it now, I managed to finally pry myself away.

I haven't touched my 3DS in a while. Maybe I'll play Omega Ruby for a bit tonight.

On the topic of pets we have two lovebirds and two turquoise parrots. We also had a dog, a labradoodle (labrador poodle cross) but she passed away just over a week ago sad.gif She was 17 so she'd been around as long as I can remember. Also, with my sister being a wildlife carer specialising in birds, there is always a number of other 'temporary pets' in the house. At the moment we have 7 other birds, but they'll all be released once they're big and strong enough ^_^.gif

I think I mentioned something two months ago xD I think a lot of disappointment came from people expecting either a real AC game or something you can play for hours on end... But if you really like decorating homes, it's fun. (And my last public project did take me over three hours. Depends on your level of perfectionism though.)

Not playing much right now since my 3DS is still broken... and I'm very reluctant to send it to Nintendo for repairs since they like to delete your stuff even if there's nothing wrong with the system itself. x(

Slightly unrelated but how do you send sky gifts anyway? I've checked out on people who've added me and also mutually added people. But the only things that I see in "Send option" is PM, BT Challenge, Shiny Race Challenge and Trinket. Is it something that I should report or I'm lacking something (upgrades or something similar)?

You send Sky Gifts via the trinkets page. If you go to your trinket collection and click on a trinket's options, there will be a 'Sky Gift' button wink.gif

Oh. Silly me, I never noticed it. facepalm.gif Thanks for telling me. Umm, but can you tell me how can one sky gift an inventory item like the others were saying?

*EDIT*
*shudders* I shudder because I'm thinking of my AC:NL game that I haven't played since... some time before August. Doh! And now I'm playing the Happy Home Academy game and you want to know the best part of that game? It. DOESN'T. Keep. Real world time. love.gif

I was playing it yesterday, going around visiting the homes I already modeled for a handful of villagers, but real life intervened. I began playing it around 6pm. It told me "Good morning." I stopped playing around 9pm. It told me "it's still early! You sure you want to end your day so soon?" LOL


It is indeed one of the MOST POSITIVE thing in the AC games. We can't play with a game everyday that takes a lot of time and focus like this. With gpx for example we can leave it for a while and do some others things at the same time. With AC it's really more difficult. So yeah, good point.

No shiny for me, it's not like if I was expecting a miracle, even for me...
But I get my 5th victory at the poke hunt so I get the achievement and a grass shard, which is nice.
Now let's go for task 11.

I find it funny how I completed an exploration only to immediately start another exploration. Strange, isn't it?

Posted by: SilverPT Dec 4 2015, 11:52 AM

So I went to release some mons that I used for the Twelve Days of Christmas exploration a couple of hours ago and I noticed that I had a Victini in my Drop boxes. -_-2.gif I finished Babysitting Adventure yesterday and hatched the egg at 2am today, so that explains a lot. facepalm.gif

Thankfully I saw it in time. headache.gif I went there to release those mons and see what IVs my Leafeon had so that I could post it in the Poke Hunt thread. And since I had to search Leafeon, I ended up seeing Victini. It would have been so bad to release a legendary when I'm 5 legendaries away (after I hatch the two that I've in my party right now) from getting I Am Legend. x_x.gif

I kept checking this thread for a reply to see if you added me/wanted the Sky Gifts and I didn't see it for some reason. I feel awful now sad.gif
I know it won't help with the Poke Hunt but hey, I'll still send a few your way okay? I'm really really sorry again... :/

Don't be sorry! It's ok! grin.gif I had it listed in an open post and then, my post grew soooooooooo huge, I thought it best to spoiler it all. Hence you probably never even saw it. No worries.

And... if those 3 Sky Gifts were from you... thank you! love.gif I got a couple handfuls of Poke Chests and some ever so useful Sweethearts and a Honey. I adore those!!! So thank you very much! I appreciate the thought and gestures. Don't feel bad!

Speaking to the pets angle... I'm a dog fan. HUGE dog fan. Sadly... and if any of you tell the burglars in our area I'll hunt ya down like a deranged Pokemon.... wink.gif .... we don't have any pets at this time. Finances and time are against us for that. Over my time, living on a farm in "backwoods" PA as a child, the pets I've had included scores of cats and chickens (not housed together), a turkey (I refused to eat one Thanksgiving so I had venison instead), a horse (ok, so it was a pony, but to a child under 10, it was a horse!), apparently some pigeons and rabbits, and a dog (or two... or three... or four).

What I want now? A dog. But a small dog. So that what has to be picked up outside won't be too extreme. LOL My husband is against the idea right now though so I'm hoping. Just don't know when. I always wanted my girls to grow up with a dog, but the dogs we seemed to own, were all already old and they only had one or two years (at best) with them. sad.gif

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. sad.gif
It really does take a dog owner to know just how much their death can affect your life, for a really really long time. I lost my best friend Levi over two years ago and I still miss him every single day, they are *never* just pets, they're family.
Also hey just stay persistent and I'm sure you can convince him to let the family get a dog; dogs and children work great together it would be awesome for them to have a furball around the house! And that's a *lot* of pets, friend!!! :P Living in the kinda lowly part of Texas I've been there done that, I've owned probably 12 dogs in my lifetime, turtles and a tortoise, all kinds of fish and lizards and frogs and birds, even a little rat now. :P
Pets are great!

Just finished seeing Carlos Santos' first episode as host of Equals Three. I loved his performance. lol.gif Although Kaja suffered from a constant wave of hate by the fans (it would be hard to replace Robby Motz anyway), he's just better than her. Much more versatile and the way the episode was made (one long episode per week instead of two, with some cool transitions) also helped.

Fed the Rhydon, friend.
But seriously just don't beat yourself up too much about it you know? We all get like this and it'll pass. Even when you seem hopeless and like nothing will ever change, it does. I promise you. Everything will always get better if you stay strong and work to keep a smile on your face.
This world can be Hell at times, you have to work really hard to make it a better place; but that work is more than worth it friend. Happiness will come and go, so you just gotta learn to appreciate the best moments as much as you can, so when the bad moments are around you can make it out alive. Shit gets tough sometimes, but you can do this I promise. We all can, we're a lot stronger than we give ourselves credit for.

Pets are great indeed. They will never judge you, never be extremly mad at you, not disappointed about you. Whatever you do, they will always love you, and that's great.

Who told you to just "move on"? That's really awful advice, lol.
For a lot of people for billions of reasons, it can be a struggle to even get out of bed in the morning. Life can be really tough and it's easy to feel lost and out of control in such a gigantic big blue world that we live on...But it's also important to see all of the beauty surrounding us, and to remember that we are always truly in control of our destiny.
Life will get better, no matter where you are, you just gotta give it some time you know? I'm assuming most of us are teens to young adults, and hey, it's natural for us to feel down or get upset easily. It's extremely easy for us to feel like losers or feel like we'll never be happy and it's the end of the world, but there is always tomorrow. There will always be a brighter day ahead of us if you just believe it, friend.
Especially when you've got great friends like all of us (:P), and more importantly, yourself! You are your greatest ally forever and always.

You have the option to back up everything on your 3DS to your SD card. I've never used it myself but it's in Settings> Data Management> Nintendo 3DS. Then you pop the SD card out before sending it off, and if they delete everything, you can restore it all from your SD card. grin.gif

I'm really feeling like crap today. Less than 36 hours ago I could barely feel a sore throat starting and now my chest and sinuses are full of gunk and it's hard to breathe. We don't have any medicine but I'm living off tea right now and that's helping some.

Nevertheless tea will save you!!! :P (Seriously though I hope you get better soon friend, it does not sound fun at ALL)



Also sidenote to the thread in general: Just to let everyone know so it doesn't seem like I vanished for no good reason, Saturday and most of Sunday I won't be online because I'm finally getting some alone time with the lady friend. (She started college back in August and really our only time to spend together anymore is weekends, so she comes over then Friday-Sunday)

Sorry to hear that you're getting "under the weather". ((( hugs ))) I hope the tea continues to help and that you're back to yourself sooner as opposed to later.

I'm about to break for lunch and watch some Jessica Jones. OMG! I so LOVE! that show! If for no other reason than David Tennant. Yeah. There's that. :p

And I think I need to bandaid my finger. Apparently "Something" found me and took a nibble because it itches. But it isn't growing like a skeeter bite. It's just... there. Weird. So. Yeah. Covering that puppy up. 'Cause right now, that's all I really wanna do! LOL Doh!

As far as I know, that doesn't work with the system things like the friend list/activity log, which is what I'm concerned about. (Friends because about half of them are leftovers from AC trades that I kept for friend safaris. Log I could deal with.) Someone also said something about losing mii lobby stuff, which would be even worse.

Kinda looks like everything else is already on the card anyway. Not sure.

I very strongly recommend New Leaf if you can find a copy for cheap like you said, there's nothing quite like getting a billion-jillion bugs from the Island and expanding your house into a giant golden mansion or awesomeness! >:)

I accomplished something I'm rather proud of. I have an Entei egg and a Suicune egg in my party at the same time. grin.gif I wonder how many times it's been done before.

I have so much classwork to do but I also just got PSMD and now Pokemon Picross and I don't know what to do. I'm probably going to put a dent in my classwork then take a sick day and goof off.

In my Showdown debut, I get 6-0'd in 5 turns (it was a triple battle) x . x

At least I've learned from some of my mistakes. It was dumb of me to use moves that hit allies and enemies without having some way to negate or soften the damage on my side. And I actually had ways to do so, if I put more thought into the battle. Triple battles are probably where I need the most improvement, since I'm accustomed to how single and double battles work but have almost never been in a triple battle except the few NPC trainers in BW2 who would challenge you in that format.

I just finished Jessica Jones and I'm not that fascinated as a lot of people about this series. David Tennant is really the masterpiece of all the season, it becames interesting for me when he appears in the script (I really don't say that because I love him as an actor) and I wonder how it will turn for season two. Maybe I need more to be surprised idk %)

I'd love a Harry Potter TV series. Like one season for one school year, a Christmas and a Halloween special... But am I ready to see new actors be all this teenage characters? maybe not haha.

I can't wait for the new Sherlock Holmes season too.

I find it funny how I completed an exploration only to immediately start another exploration. Strange, isn't it?


That's my regular routine. 'Gotta complete Tours of Illusion, so that I can start 12 Days of Christmas', 'Have to complete 12 days fast or I won't able to start Secrets'etc etc. By the end of the month, I am deficient in explorations and wait eagerly for the next month to come.
