Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Post-Direct ThoughtsSmash Ultimate is shaping up to be one colossal and fantastic-looking game. While the only character(s) I would really desire right now would be a Gen 7 Pokemon (Decidueye or Dusk Lycanroc), I would be perfectly satisfied with the roster we currently have.
Masahiro Sakurai has given us some modes and features that I didn't even know I wanted until now such as the Stage Morph and Smashdown features!
I do believe a story/adventure mode is coming, as Rathalos was stated to be a "Boss" rather than a stage boss or stage hazard like Ridley and Yellow Devil have been referred to in the past. In addition, I don't believe the area Rathalos was initially shown in was a stage but a boss arena for a story/adventure mode. The area is far too bland to be a standard stage, and without Rathalos it would be huge and empty. In addition, if this were just a stage, I don't see many reasons why the stage wouldn't have been completely shown off and showcased under
Smash Bros for Switch: The stuff nobody discussesOkay so Smash Bros for Switch has been announced, and I had journal I was writing on this topic before the game was actually announced, assuming that it would be an enhanced port. Nothing is confirmed (people need to stop assuming anything is set in stone from the short, vague, cinematic trailer), so I'll keep the stuff I had pre-announcement that assumes that it is a port.
You see most people focus on the same thing, What characters are most certainly absolutely going to be in the game just because I want them or Which characters do I want to be in the game. Sometimes people discuss the potential for 3DS content, mostly stages, to come to this deluxe version of Smash 4 or Smash 5. There are some things that some people don't discuss really. I'd like to do just that.
Controllers are a very important aspect to Smash Bros, specifically the Gamecube controller. USB controllers such as Gamecube controllers that use the Gamecube a
Should I Buy Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon??Just to clarify, no I do not mean which version should I buy, I mean should I actually buy one of the games or pass on them?
For me, Pokemon Moon was an okay game. The beginning of the game on Melemele Island was such a chore and was one of the times when I was not having fun with a Pokemon Game at all. I believe the other islands were definitely a lot more fun, and I did enjoy how the rest of the main game unraveled. With that in mind, I really haven't touched the game a whole lot since I completed the main story. I went and captured all of the Ultra Beasts in my version and Necrozma and did some shiny hunting. Other than that, I gave up on training my team to level 100 because there were not many places to do so and I really only touched the game to get event Pokemon.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon looked pretty bland to me for a while until they began introducing new Ultra Beasts and the Ultra Recon Squad. The game seemed exciting and like it would be really different from S

My ComebackMy Hiatus
I do have to apologize for my huge, extended hiatus. As of this moment, I haven't uploaded anything since June, and before those three Deviations it was January, and even then, I know I had had large breaks except for pre-Sun&Moon animations. I don't want to excuse my absence by any means, especially to those who I owe things to, but school has kept my hands full for quite a while, leaving me less time to work on things like animations. The loss of the drive with all of work on it (I had one animation that had not been uploaded and several PDN files of deconstructed sprites) made me lose a lot of motivation, pretty much completely for the Valina Region, and I am pretty upset by that. I'm especially upset that I wasn't able to fulfill my many promises of finishing that Dex whenever I originally planned to have it finished (I believe in like 2014 or 15 I said it would be done by the beginning of 2016 or something).
I've also switched to a Mac, which, doesn'
Pokemon USUM News on July 19th?http://www.pokemon.jp/special/mystery/
I have seen the translations of the questions shown in this Japanese trailer, and they all seem to relate to the space, dimensional, and otherworldly parts of past Pokemon games. I will be honest, I'm not exactly sure what Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have in store for us, and I wasn't really excited when I saw the original reveal trailer, but this mysterious trailer and page on the Japanese Pokemon website has me really hyped for the games now!
To me, it looks like these games will do something with the alternate universe that has been described in past games, space, and of course Ultra Space. The thing that I like about the trailer is that it doesn't really use just Ultra Beasts but the dimensional rifts from ORAS, Deoxys's appearance in ORAS, Mt. Moon, the Distortion World, and the Unova alien Pokemon, Elgyem. The whole trailer gives off the impression that Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will have a story centered around this type of stuff, and it
Your thoughts on... Me?You know I've been here for over six years here on Deviantart and I've made a lot of friends, and I believe I've improved as a hobbyist artist. I've had my fair share of mistakes and learning moments, but I've also had a lot of great memories here.
What I would like to know is:
What do you think about me, Christopher White?
I'd like to hear what my watchers and friends think of me? What do you think of my art? My improvement? My attitudes? My personality? Anything, the sky really is the limit. Any opinions you may have about me, negative or positive, I really don't mind hearing negative thoughts/opinions about myself, fire away!
Projects are Cancelled for Now or ForeverI would guess I should have seen this coming eventually, but the drive that I have kept all of my projects on has been lost this week and I am hesitant as to if I'll be able to find it or not. I probably should have made an effort a long time ago to have backed up all of my stuff to a backup cloud or storage device, but unfortunately, I did not. So unless if my drive is found, I will be cancelling all of my projects here on Deviantart.
However, I am not done with Deviantart at all. Let me clarify. My Valina Region project will still exist, but all Pokemon will stay currently as is, with any unuploaded ones being thrown from the dex. A few numbers will be readjusted, but this will be the final dex most likely.
Animations will not cease either. The past month I have been getting back into animating, and finishing a couple commissions that have been long overdue. Of course, these will unfortunately need to be restarted, but I will continue to animate Fakemon and Pokemon sprites, esp
A Second Mario Kart Game on Nintendo Switch?Disclaimer: This is not about any rumored, leaked, or official game. These are simply my own ideas.
Mario Kart on Switch Currently
As of May of 2017, there are nine official Mario Kart Games on Nintendo Consoles. With the first game being on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the franchise has had a game on every Nintendo console, except for the Gameboy, the Gameboy Color, and the Virtual Boy. While later entries have adopted "retro tracks" from previous titles in their many tracks, every installment in the Mario Kart franchise has had a handful of brand new tracks. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the latest entry in the franchise, has all of the tracks from Mario Kart 8 on Wii U, including all 16 DLC tracks, and it also has eight brand new battle courses to coincide with its brand new Battle Mode.
While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game, receiving nearly universal praise from critics and fans, many pointed out the lack of brand new race tracks in the game. Seeing t

Prompts [additional abnormal prompts]•••
Origin Prompts: Create your Esk's story
