But for here...

>Team Rocket is back to normal?

...Well, maybe not. We still won't be seeing them in the next airing episode (which involves Bianca and Emolga), so we'll have to see whether or not they will go back to being Ash's punching bags.

James also befriends and captures a Yamask, giving him a Pokémon after 25 straight episodes of nothing.

Well from what I hear their next objective is Looking for Giovani who was Kidnapped by Team plasma So maybe they wont see ash until he meets up with Team Plasma

I haven't watched the anime in ages, but my understanding is that the current season has changed writing staff completely and is now actually good, being about the entire Rocket organization have decided to seriously ruin Unova's day.
>> No. 19565
Yeah, from what I've seen (not much because I can only view it via wherever on internet) the show really has taken Rocket to a new level.

Though I do take issue with how it feels like Ash and co were hit with chloroform, mind wiped, and tossed into a situation where they don't know anything. I mean wow, I knew how the show in the past had him act dumbfounded at new pokemon, but it's like he's never seen a pokemon now. It even seems like he's forgotten about everything that has happened in his past? Will we never see old characters make a reappearance or have callbacks?

And why does EVERYONE look so short? Otherwise, I like the new show. I stopped watching the minute the Advanced series began, not liking it much after a few episodes. I've started again with this series, albeit only seeing episodes 4-6.

And can someone direct me to a good place to watch all of the new series's episodes, because I'd really like to give it a shot.
>> No. 19569
People in Pokemon have always been oddly short: it's a side effect of them all being kids which is easy to forget. Old characters probably won't be making many reappearances seeing as it's Unova, until they get incredibly desperate for writing material.

The question lies in which to get..

>Espeon - Magic Bounce (Grants an inherent one-time Magic Guard each turn)
>Umbreon - Inner Focus
>Leafeon - Leaf Guard

I'm leaning Jolteon or Espeon. If I get a female, I'll be able to make Dream Eevee for the rest, too.

Ash is still ten after all of his adventures. Pikachu's power is still a function of the plot.

Fuck the anime. It was supposed to end after Kanto and the first movie and it shows. Johto was shit, most of Hoenn was shit. Not trying again, that ship has sailed.

Also the first movie and that other Mewtwo movie were the dumbest shit ever. SAILOR MOON made more sense than that.

Remaking Ruby and Sapphire for the 3DS would not be a stretch. 2012/2013 will be the 10th year anniversary. Ruby and Sapphire would go with the whole "3DS" theme in a way because the colors match old 3D glasses. Plus with how you have to transfer Pokemon from Gen 3 twice just to get them to gen 5 and how you'd probably have to transfer them three times with the coming of a sixth gen, it'd make sense that they'd remake them to allow easier transfer.

Also holy shit Ruby and Sapphire are almost 10 years old.

Did you recently change the clock on your ds?
>> No. 20889
NO! When I did do that nothing changed!
>> No. 20914
Hmmm... Cause clock changes makes the game reduce the city/forest.

Were you in the vicinity of someone playing pokemon white?
>> No. 20915
Clock changes can do that? May I ask how and why this happens?
>> No. 20916
>> No. 20917
Well, the game populates your black city/white forest based on how many days real time it took you to get to there the first time. So if your game senses that your clock has gone say, backwards, shit's gunna decrease.
>> No. 20919
Wouldn't turning the clock backwards make it increase, since less playtime is better?
>> No. 20921
It's a standard thing in Pokemon. Back in Gen 4 if you reset your DS clock you'd be locked out of doing the Pal Park Transfer for 24 hours from the time you reset, to prevent "time travel" cheats. This is most likely the same thing.

I imagine the way it works is that every time you start the game, it compares the time you've started to the last time you turned off the system, and figures out the difference. Then it sees if enough time has passed that it needs to drop the population of Black City/White Forest.

Most likely they either use the absolute value for the difference (so whether it's forward or backward makes no difference) or they treat all negative values as being a constant value that drops a resident or two.
>> No. 20922
The game would also lock out daily events if you moved your clock forward (to catch a weekly Pokemon like Drifloon for example) so I think it just sees if you moved the clock.
>> No. 20923
I've never had a time travel problem because I'd just change the date to the day before the one I want and change the time to 23:59.
>> No. 20928
This is bullshit, apparently no matter what I do my white forest is going to be completely empty because I'm too busy to play everyday.
