"For fucking serious, stop acknowledging GSC as the "best", when it's down as worst as RBY are! That is all"
"purplekecleon is the smartest Pokemon fan on dA"
"Pikachu is overrated"
"There are other pokemon besides "
"I'm tired of seeing Pokemon on the front page! Even though I like pokemon"
Sound familiar? Well, if you're into pokemon and you scout the fandom at ANY point in time, you'll find these at large. In fact, go to the search bar, and type in "Pokemon overrated" and you'll get a slew of stamps, deviations, and literature that'll tell you why Pokemon is overrated or why a certain pokemon, usually a pretty popular one, is overrated.
Go to Bulbapedia's facebook page, and post a team, any team, and post movesets and natures, and you'll get a ton of people who'll tell you how to fix your terribly planned team. They'll either call you a "n00b" or tell you swap one pokemon for another, or fix your team entirely. Somehow they feel self entitled to tell you that you're not playing poke

Asuka sat up and threw the blanket from her body, reaching up to rub her aching forehead. She'd just gotten through one of the most difficult weeks of her life, and now she was paying for her restless nights with drowsy mornings. She pressed her fingers hard into the right side of her temple, unable to wipe the pain away.
"I hope Misato doesn't want us to do anything today what a hell of a time that would be "
Asuka stood up, her toes digging into the layer of padding she'd placed on the floor to sleep on. She still couldn't believe she was being forced to sleep on the floor, and she knew it was the primary reason that some part of her ached every morning since she'd come to Japan. She rubbed her eyes and slid open the separating door between the room and the hallway, stepping outside and immediately hearing a familiar voice calling to her.
"Asuka!" came the voice, which immediately registered as Misato's. Asuka groaned. "You've got ten minut
Krabby ReportKrabby (the River Crab Pokémon) is a common Water-type Pokémon found within bodies of freshwater and saltwater around the world. Though often times ignored in favor of more menacing Water-types, Krabby are powerful creatures that can easily pull their weight in battle with surprisingly strong Defense and Attack stats. These critters might not have the skills needed to last very long against special attacks, but they can still be great choices for early trainers; just be careful about getting too close, lest you accidentally get your nose pinched off!Krabby Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Krabby live along beaches and silty river banks within small burrows dug directly into the fine-grained substrates, usually deep enough to where their surroundings are relatively moist. Krabby are simple creatures that feed on small insects and microorganisms within nearby bodies of water, rarely ever leaving their comfortable habitats for any reason other than mating. Krabby tend to avoid humans if at all possible, but this shou

I cannot stress how much communication is vital in a roleplay. But sometimes, people will jump in on some things that absolutely step boundaries. For example, initiating violence, invading personal space, initiating sexual activity or even rape should all be addressed before they happen! The phrase "easier to apologize than to ask" is absolutely not the case here - I once stopped all communication with a person who found it funny to have one character "rape" another. Needless to say, both of my characters that were involved have no recollection of this whatsoever.

I wake up, screaming. Something I never do.

It was late one evening..
I was watching the silent river tumble over the rocks of the waterfall and slow into a swirling pool when I noticed it.
A pink pokemon that was flying just across the river, every now and then it would let out a happy cry as it bit into a berry it had found.
I observed the pokemon and silently took out my book of known species and signaled to my vulpix, Yuki, who nodded.
I searched through the book of 150 pokemon quickly, only to see that this pokemon wasn't there. I peered back up to see it had disappeared. I frowned somewhat disappointed and turned to walk away.
Suddenly I was face-to-face with the tiny pokemon, it's blue eyes staring at me with curiosity
I quickly wrote it down in my book, and added a description the pokemon sat still with interest as I drew a quick sketch of it into my book.
When I had finished I peered at it with interest and it suddenly sat on my shoulder.

After a while my eyes get used to the darkness. I'm in an empty room, there's nothing there except the walls made of beige coloured stones and sand is covering the floor.
Suddenly I hear faint crying... My heart aches.
Somehow I feel different, twisted feelings emerge inside of me making my heart ache even more.
The faint crying gets louder, who was crying there?
I wince in pain at the saddening sound. I try to move but I can't, only my eyes are able to move.
With my eyes I scan the room looking for the source of the crying, but like before there is nothing there. I move my eyes to the place I haven't looked at yet, the tiny spot directly in front of me.
The skull of a crocodile like creature lies there, the rest of its skeleton is covered with sand, only a few rips and a part of the spine are visible. Upon seeing the skeleton a loud sob echoes in the dark and I find

"Hey, Mew," Lucario said after swallowing down the last berry, "Just when you were about to leave now, I got the strangest feeling that I weren't going to see you again."
"Really?" Mew asked, subtly bobbing her head to the side, "Did you think I was going to simply abandon you?"
"No, no," Lucario mumbled while waving his arms dismissively, "I just had a feeling."
"Do you normally let random sensations dictate your judgment?" Mew asked with a serious tone, "It would be physically impossible for you to predict whether or not I would stay."
Lucario muttered something nasty, wondering why Mew had turned sour all of a sudden. He had been the one complaining about the disgusting berries, after all. It is not like she had cooked them or anything... The fact that he was still breathing was proof of that.
"... Hey," Lucario said loudly after a long time of thinking, "You're trying to get humans to stop catching Pokémon?"
"No," Mew answered, although secretly she wished for nothing more, "J

The sounds of Rukia's footsteps disappeared as Ichigo swung away at the Hollow who, even though had only one arm now was able to block all of Ichigo's attempts of shattering it's mask.
Ichigo then heard a scream.
It was Rukia's voice.
"RUKIA!" he yelled in the direction of her scream, hugely concerned; his attention completely focused on Rukia's well being.
The Hollow took Ichigo's moment of distraction as an opportunity to make an attack. He got his arm slashed badly by it's cat-like claws.
Full of rage and worry, he decided to end the fight quickly.
He stood back holding Zangetsu tightly in both hands and yelled "GETSUGA TENSHOU!" A blue beam of energy was released from the large blade, completely destroying the Hollow's mask. It howled loudly as it's existence vanished.
Ichigo ran as fast as he could toward the direction where he heard Rukia's scream, completely forgetting about his heavily bleeding arm. He spotted her unconscious body by the water.

My grandmother was a sad woman when she died, she continuously murmured something very strange that I couldn't understand. One night I decided to sneak into her room at night and listen.
After a long line of inaudible mumbling, she finally said clear as day something disturbing. I sat for a few minutes more and she repeated it again.
Eventually she was repeating it over and over.
The same line, tears streaming down her face.
I wondered what it meant, and the next day I asked her.
As soon as the words came form my mouth her eyes grew large and sad... and....guilty?
She shooed me form her room, claiming to feel sick.
A few hours later we grew worried, and so we went in her room.

Billie had flown home for the weekend last minute and Tre was off God knows where, likely with the woman he'd been winking at the whole concert. Sighing, Mike turned on his cheap-ass laptop that he'd got when his mother , of all people, told him he needed to stop living in the past. Is it really so bad to live in the past? He thought to himself. The past had been awesome. No wife, kids, responsibility. Just him, Billie, Tre, and the music. And the one night stands, can't forget about those. He opened his email and spotted one from his mom. "Speak of the devil and the devil shall appear, huh?" He muttered with a smirk. Blah blah blah, normal old people talk. Even she, Mike noted, was talking about the past. She did this, talked about their past before she put him and his sister up for adoption.

Band practice hadnt been this lame since the beginning of rock. Hell, maybe even since the beginning of music. I went on drumming with the lack of accomplishment fueling me. An hour later, I was sweating like an over-worked whore. In the booth next to mine, Mike was
Lucario ReportLucario (the Aura Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Fighting/Steel-type Pokémon found among grassy plains and mountainous terrain within the Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions. While the chances of seeing one of these rare creatures in battle may be slim, Lucario are powerful creatures that can more than prove to be an immense challenge to any trainer forced to fight them in battle. They might not be the best at taking damage, but when you have the ability to see and detect the motions of the opposition no matter where they are, that's unlikely to ever be much of a problem!Lucario Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

However, her calm did not last long.

It was a choice to plunge the knife into her shaking form, yes...

But because of my actions, I see her still-trembling body in my nightmares every time I close my eyes. For the past year and a half, I haven't had a decent night's sleep. Sure, every so often I would pass out completely from exhaustion, but even then, she haunts me.
The look in her eyes well, lack thereof is disturbing, to say the least. Empty, meaningless, lonely...and yet, all at the same time, hungry. The voids widen and pierce my consciousness so deep, I have to check my body's condition when I awaken. I'm always fine, physically, but I can still see her face for days at a time.
