...seriously needs to go out and hear how people actually talk.

Note, TPCi, people generally don’t talk in full words like “I will” and “I am”, contractions exist for a reason.

Now I see why people were complaining about the translation; sometimes the literal path isn’t the best to take. For all the stuff they ended up changing, the Treehouse-translated dialogue was vivid and lifelike, you could actually imagine people speaking like that, and they kept the innuendo in for the older players. Platinum’s translation was amazing.

TPCi-translated…well, it feels wooden and awkward.

Oh, Treehouse, how I miss you so…
dreamreaver: (how utterly unsurprising)

America - 6th March
Europe - 4th March
Oceania - 10th March

Obviously this is a really short wait compared to DPPt - and the reason why I imported those - but seriously, that we lag behind yet again is proof of the North being bloody cockteases.

Oh, wait, it was the moronic politicians who can't admit the fact that most of us gamers are fucking adults who stalled it, wasn't it? Hmm?

dreamreaver: (what is this—?!)
originally posted to [info]pokemon , this is mostly a reminder for me

lol, link dump )

We're havin' a fun time trolling 4chan's /n/ board with images and greentext of this guy (and it all started on a second post derailment on /vp/):

I will never doubt the fun of an all-nighter again.

(wait does he even have a trollface image? There has to be one somewhere.)

dreamreaver: (hrmm...)
tl;dr some guy on 2ch has Pokémon Black and posts info and a video; everyone freaks out.

/vp/ especially is running very high on emotion, and very pissed off that the ROM hasn't leaked yet.

(knowing my hideous luck, it'll leak when I go to bed or go to school tomorrow morning)

Looks like the Anglophone fandom just shot themselves in the foot, now the Japanese are refusing to leak the ROM because a bunch of assholes kept trolling the livestreams. GREAT JOB /vp/!!

>mfw Serebii is vindicated of everything ever

I don't think the fandom has been this worked up since late 2006 )

dreamreaver: (subspace tear)
tl;dr guy on 2ch posts apparent evos, Serebii says they might be real due to certain factors, OP says they're fake, everyone breathes sighs of relief, one of Serebii's contacts says "no, they actually are real", everyone floods the board with complaints, Pokébeach and some Spanish site decide to get in on the fun (and oh God that is so very wrong)

I'll say this: if these do turn out to be real, there are going to be so many people eating their words come the 18th...

Because I'm bored and I want to experience the story again.

Team name: Argent (Latin argentum, "silver")
Player: Vulpix/Ninetales (Azeri) (Basque, "fox")
Partner: Pikachu/Raichu (Väläys) (Finnish, "flash", lit. "burst of light"; it needs the umlauts, or it won't actually mean anything...) (not the speedsters, obviously, but the theme naming isn't a coincidence; they're associated with thunder and lightning, remember?)
Backup 1: Snorunt/Froslass (Skaði) (Proto-Germanic skađwoz, Proto-Indo-European skotwōs, "shadow") (Norse goddess; winter, hunting)
Backup 2: Remoraid/Octillery (Varuna) (Sanskrit, "ocean") (holy shit look at that insane attack power)

Pre-credits team:

Final team:

dreamreaver: (subspace tear)

Reshiram/white colored/mascot for Black. Zekrom/black colored/mascot for White.

So yeah, they totally look like archangels or something. And their names sound like something that would make sense in Hebrew...

dreamreaver: (screwball)
True story.

Pokémon Black and White

Don't ask.

First, one of the G5 Pokémon revealed last night (?) - Zorua, the Dark Fox.

Who was the brain-dead idiot on Bulbapedia who thought giving one particular user an entire monopoly on all G5-related articles was a good idea?

Oh, and someone on DeviantART already drew an anthro Zoroark. God, can I please just go one fucking page without seeing this furry bullshit?!
dreamreaver: (I AM THE VULPINE QUEEN)
I've just realized how the release dates of a great many things that I'm waiting for fall on March.

Fate of the Jedi: Backlash - March 9
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver (US) - March 14
Blackest Night #8 / Flash Secret Files - March 24 (for the most part, I've gotten over my little hissy fit over the "on hold" fiasco, but I'm still not glad...)

Well, well, well...this year is going to be interesting.

FYAD, and do not be killing off whatever escort client I'm guiding up the bloody mountain!

I hate Drifblim's Unburden ability...
