Man, real life has been keeping me busy, not too much time for GPX these days. But hey, I'm getting shinies left and right both here and in Sword, so that definitely makes up for it. Gonna be heading to my dad's for Christmas Day, anyone else have any special plans for the holidays?

I'm just planning to spend some time with family [although, this year I'm crossing my fingers that we have enough money to get back home because my father thought driving back to California for a week would be a good idea]. Even if we don't always get along, I do care about some of my family members.


On a different note I've been tempted to get Animal Crossing: New Leaf lately. Haven't really played much in the way of video games except Pokemon before and maybe it's time I step outside of my comfort zone [although I did get pre-owned copies of LEGO Batman 2 and 3 and Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate for $2 each yesterday. I don't think I'm good at fighting games but I'll try]. Had to sell a lot of my childhood games without ever having played some of them due to being strapped for cash a couple years back, sadly.

Not really

I'm doing the same as usual, gonna buy some fireworks this year cause idk fireworks are cool though I'm gonna ask someone else to set them off for me cause I'm not ready to lose my fingers yet

I'm helping some people out with a project, and in-between that and the announced GPX events I think I'll do some reading and get some progress with a few games I bought

For the second time in my life I imported a game and I love how it has English subs
Also tomorrow at 3pm Europe time there's the Nintendo Eshop sale so maybe I can get even more stuff from there.
I saved up quite a bit of those gold points

Maybe a visit to the comic shop as well but that'll depend

Watched the trailer for Digimon Adventure: Kizuna just yesterday, and I'll say, around 20, 21 seconds in I was already tearing up. Then "Butterfly" started and by that point I was barely restraining myself from full-blown sobbing, haha. While I grew up largely with the English versions of Digimon Adventure and Adventure 02, that theme still sucker punches me right in the feelings. I'm still not ready to say a final goodbye to the characters I grew up with.


I wonder how they're going to handle Armadillomon + evos if this ever gets dubbed into English, though, because I know for Tri in both English and Japanese many of the original voice actors came back to reprise their roles. And, uhh, Robert Axelrod is dead, so. I guess they could try to get Dave Mallow back.



To keep this from being entirely irrelevant; to those of you with not-so-great families that don't have a choice not to interact with them, I feel for you. In large part I'm in the same boat. Stay strong, you'll get through this. woot.gif I'm rooting for us all! I hope all of you can manage to get some enjoyment out of things regardless.

I saw that trailer, too!

Was convinced it'd be a tearjerker for me till I read

spoilers duh (click to show)


I now feel very divided on whether I should give it a watch and so I'm contemplating asking a friend to do a prewatch for me.

It did cause me to pick up my Digimon Cyber Sleuth copy again and get some progress done.
Really liking the naming feature.

Oh, really? That's cool for the portion of the audience that will be able to access them, I guess. And it's nice that you have friends, especially ones willing to watch things for you and give you a heads-up.

I've heard Cyber Sleuth was decent, though I'll never own a Switch so it's solely watching Let's Plays for me [I started watching one a while back, but tired of the guy's narration]. But, you can get Armadillomon, Gomamon and Tentomon's entire lines in it so that's good enough in my book. teehee.gif Oh, and Wormmon and Hawkmon.


On a fairly unrelated note I just realized that my father owes me at least $700-$800 from this year alone [and I stopped counting after about 800]. Rest in pieces to 9 years worth of savings. We haven't been able to hold onto money this year what with bills and having to move to an entirely different state thanks to 1 particularly shitty family member of mine, so I doubt he'll ever be able to pay me back. Oh well, it's happened many a time before and I'm used to it. Still, too bad I can't get that Kabuterimon plush I've been looking for for years, the guy said he isn't holding onto it forever.

With all these titles being licensed I wouldn't be surprised if they do as well.

Hm I suppose Digimon fans must be somewhat rare these days
The chances of said friends checking out the new movie are fairly high (due to them being fans, too) so that's why
Other titles I tend to rely on reviews for, paying attention to very specific keywords only

Christmas ended up being pretty awesome! Got some stuff I definitely wasn't expecting. Now I have New Years and my birthday to look forward to, though I do work on both New Year's Eve and Day, so I can't go too crazy.

So... It's been a long time since I've been here in Gpx+ and GTS. Like almost 2 or 3 years. College got really, really heavy with everything, basically so I had to say goodbye to a few things that I loved.

Now that I finished it, though? GOD does it feel nice to be back.

It's sad to realize, though, that the site isn't as active as it was before. DAMN I always loved this site. Still do, to be honest.

Also, I didn't usually got around to post stuff in the forums. I've always been a little shy around forums though so...

Anyway, happy new year, everyone! I hope everyone had a nice day and got to share some nice meal with family and friends.

As for me, I borrowed Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu from a friend and BOY AM I HAVING TONS OF FUN.
Like, for real though, I'm gonna be obsessed with this game for a while.
It's also my first Pokemon game ever, since I've never owned a handheld console before but I have the switch so, yay for me (I was so hyped for Sword and Shield, but then I heard about the news of not having the National Dex, so I just decided to skip the game altogether. It just doesn't feel right for me, y'know?)

So anyway, I am playing Let's Go and I've already decided to have a Shiny Living Dex in there... Because why not? I'm a collector more than a fighter so it really pulls my interests. I already have most of the Pokes, I still yet to have the Eevee exclusives and the trading evolution ones. And since I don't play PoGo since my phone totally hates it... It's gonna be a long journey. Though, I'm hyped for it.
I am about to tackle the Elite 4 so I'm just grinding some levels.
The Shiny Living Dex is going a little slow (without the Shiny Charm I wouldn't expect a lot of shinies anyway). However, I already have 5 shinies, 3 of them being random: Sh. Zubat while going through the Seafom Caves, Sh. Tentacool while surfing in the nearby area and a Sh. Magmar while grinding some levels in Pokemon Mansion. Got a Sh. Articuno after 168 soft resets (a little less than 3 hours) and a Sh. Zapdos after 264 soft resets (4 hours sharp), so I'm really happy because of it.

I'm also a really crazy person and so I decided that I'm also gonna hunt twice those shinies that have gender differences.
And to top it off? I also decided to make my Pokemon as strong as I can, so that means resetting their IVS with the Bottle Caps and to feed them 200 candy. BOI DO I WANNA KNOW HOW MUCH AM I GONNA BE ABLE TO HOLD ON.
Though I'm gonna exclude Legendaries tho'. And maaaaybe the Fossils too since getting candy for them (I imagine) would be a nightmare in itself. I'll think about it tho'. What I know? Is that I just finished to hunt for those 200 Magmar candy. 101 catch combo of them, lol.

So, am I crazy or what? I probably am, aren't I? i also don't know why I wanna go through all of that when I am not a competitive player at all...

But here I am. lol.

I'm rambling now, aren't I? Woops sorry for that. I truly hope everyone's doing pretty fine!

Yeah, outside of Japan the series isn't popular due to a variety of factors. Sad, but oh well. I doubt they're ever going to make a major turnaround. And, checking the reviews for anything is always a good plan.

@Rookie Roo: Good luck with that shiny living dex!

As usual, I got nothing for the holidays. I hope 2020 is good to everyone.

@Rookie Roo
You're gonna have A LOT of new Pokémon to hatch :P Everything from gen 1 to 7 been released and 8 is being rolled out
Then there's ALL the novelties that came out between then and now
I hope you'll have a good time getting to know them all

@AregularFrankiefan
Yeah it's absolutely a shame those two had their anime come out at the same time in such a competitive environment
All the fans can do is show interest in that stuff through social media, and reply to whatever feedback surveys are sent out
I'm already very happy we got a Digimon release on switch (a two-in-one package) with a strategy type game to follow sometime this year. Plus there's the mobile releases, sure not the best that's available but if it helps convince them to release more stuff then I'm all for that. Though I don't think we'll ever get a modern animated work as good as the first three installments.

Indeed, it is. Hopefully one day a slightly-higher volume of Digimon content will make its way outside of its country of origin, but 2 recent games and some mobile releases are very much not bad. It's a start. And yeah, I also highly doubt we'll get something as good. Seems like that ship has just sailed, when it comes to Toei + Digimon animation.

On an unrelated note, what is everyone voting for in the SWSH? I picked Ledyba, Scorbunny, and Torkoal. Might swap out Scorbunny with something else before the deadline.

Stumbled across this site earlier. Looks like a fun place, but I do see a few issues...

1. IPB 2.3.1. Seriously? IPB 3.x was released in June 2009 and 4.x in May 2012. There is absolutely no reason to continue using such an outdated version of the forum software. If you don't want to pay to use the latest version of IPB (which is great software), then there are plenty of good free options available.

2. You're running PHP 5.5.9. The latest version of PHP 5.5 is 5.5.38, but PHP discontinued support for 5.5 in July of 2016 and the entire 5.x line at the end of 2018. You should be on 7.2 or 7.3 by now.

Phione been on my wish list very long, Sobble and Morelull have very nice coloration

To continue on Digimon media, I did hear America will get screenings of the new movie so whoever lives there's pretty lucky I suppose

So what's you guys' opinion on the direct

Morelull especially, the shiny has a nice overall aesthetic. And yeah, we're getting Kizuna screenings but it's for 1 night only and you have to purchase tickets through a singular, specific retailer. I personally will more than likely not be able to go, but I haven't been to a theater in over 11 years anyway and there will probably be a DVD released so I guess it's not a big loss. The last time something like this happened, the closest showing of the thing I wanted to see was 4 hours away and my family bitched at me for wanting to go...so I didn't.

I haven't seen the Direct, but demo footage uploaded by certain YouTubers has started showing up in my feed. Looks nice. Although, I won't be getting it since I can in no way afford a Switch.



@JohnnyPikachu: While you make reasonable points, I don't believe the moderators intend to update anything forums-wise for personal reasons. You're likely just preaching to a deaf choir, my friend.

@AregularFrankiefan
I picked Grookey, Weedle and Pidgey so i guess that we will all be hunting different starters this time around
Why? Well, Rillaboom is just badass. Like seriously.
And the other two: I just want an excuse to hunt Kanto pokemon, even though they are most likely forgotten already.

@Luneon
About the direct (click to show)


@JohnnyPikachu: Yeah... I have no idea what are you saying, sorry pal. But like Frankie said, I don't think it's going to be updated or anything. Though, this works too and, for old people like me who've been on this site since a long time ago, it also feels kinda nostalgic... Though that might be only me, woops.

Overall, I guess I would love for Digimon to become the next big franchise. Like, I'm getting more angry at Pokemon that I just want someone to knock them off a little but I don't think that'll ever happen.
I still remember playing Digimon Rumble Arena and that other one with the tank that you had to drive through a maze or something like that. Digimon World 2 I think?
But man, I loved the first Digimon. And the second one. Got lost at the third and onwards, though.

Also, Luneon, I was totally talking about getting all the shinies of Pokemon Let's Go (though, tbf, I also would love to do that with GPX). I'm proud to say, though, that I have 12/180 (counting the ones with gender differences and not counting Mew, Metan and Melmetan) shinies already! Wohooo! And in those ones I already have all the legendaries and the Weedle line. Currently working on Caterpie and Bulbasaur lines, hehe.

Could you please, remind me. I've decided to change my site-wide shiny hunt starter. Right now I am hunting scorbunny, but I want to hutn for grookey. Will I be able instantly to choose grookey, or there will be a penalty for it? Thank you=)

Nope you will have to wait a week. It's best to just continue Scorbunny for now!
