Anybody with a 3DS and a copy of Pokemon X/Y, do the right thing and add me.

ggcomics said: I can safely say that when I get the new pokemon, ALL of my names will be banned. I’ll just have to settle for naming them all Pocketwhat
Ha! Pocketwhat, classic. Expect the rest of mine to be called Pocketwhat. I’ll number them. I did that in Sapphire, I called them all Gilbert. Gilbert 1, Gilbert 2 and so on. I’ve tried a few banned names, ‘weed’ was banned but Spliff-Boy was perfectly acceptable. Also the word ‘shop’ seems to be banned, for some bizarre reason.
So, the best thing about the new Pokemon game is the Wonder Trade, a totally blind trade with anyone in the world. You pick a Pokemon you want to trade, it finds someone in a similar situation (someone who wants to trade something immediately) and then the magic happens. It gets wild. You end up trading away shitty Pokemon and receiving great ones, and vice versa. So I’m going to write up a quick trade chain that I’m about to attempt. Catch a random Pokemon, then keep trading it with people until I find a Pokemon I like. Fool proof. Also, now that this paragraph is almost finished, it’s a good time to mention that this particular blog post is specifically for people who like Pokemon, anyone else just won’t understand this and it’ll be a huge waste of time for you, the reader. So don’t say I didn’t warn you, cause I did. Anyway, on with the trade.
Booted up the game, I was on route 7, so I ran straight into tall grass to find a Poke to trade. Got me a Croagunk, but I wanted to keep that for meself, so I tried again. Next up is an Illumise, which is shite. Off it goes. Tried naming it ‘Fun Bags’, wouldn’t let me. Apparently ‘bags’ is a banned word. ‘Fun-Bags’ (With a hyphen) is totally allowed though, excellent. Away we go.
Traded Fun-Bags (Illumise) for Honedge.
Traded Honedge for Galvantula.
Traded Galvantula for Beedrill.
Traded Beedrill for Bidoof, Jesus Christ. Trade, trade now.
Tried trading Bidoof and the game refused, sending me back to the menu. Get the fuck out, Bidoof. It’s from Japan, but I’ve already got a ton of Pokes from Japan so I don’t need him. Out you go.
Traded Japanese Bidoof for Eevee, fancy. But I already have two and I only need one. Vaporeon, baby! So trade on.
Traded Eevee for Japanese Delibird.
Traded Japanese Delibird for Scatterbug.
Traded Scatterbug for Japanese Ditto.
Traded Japanese Ditto for Ralts.
Traded Ralts for Zorua.
Traded Zorua for Butterfree.
Traded Butterfree for Croagunk. Ha, how about that.
Traded Croagunk for a Honedge called Morgan. First nickname so far.
Traded Morgan (Honedge) for Luvdisc. Slim pickings tonight.
Traded Luvdisc for Furfrou. Too many F’s there.
Traded Furfrou for a Foongus called BuyARTPOP (excellent name)
Traded BuyARTPOP (Foongus) for a Japanese Rotum. Bingo.
So thats the end of that. The one thing we’ve learned from this whole pointless scenario is that most people can’t be arsed renaming their Pokemon. This is a tragedy. Give your Pokemon nicknames, people, embrace your creativity. Or whatever. #Wisdom
Show the world we want a phone worth keeping! #phonebloks
Alright guys, I won’t be seeing you for the next few weeks, got some, er… important things to attend to. Sorry work, I can’t come in today, I’m really sick, or whatever..
So for some reason I switched on the TV today and it was on This Morning, that crappy magazine show that’s on in the… mornings. And the people on this show in the morning were debating whether or not parents who mistreat their kids should be castrated to stop any further mistreatment. The story began using the word murder, (should a mother who murders her child be able to have any other children? Text us your opinions!) but by the end of it the murder vibe was somewhat lost. Anyway, should murder-parents be castrated by the state? Lets find out!
Also worth noting about this debacle is that the conversation was about the mothers. Should the mothers be castrated if they kill the kids? The fathers are cool, they have relatively little to do with the reproductive process, you don’t wanna go giving them the snip or anything. But the mothers! Shut that baby factory down sharpish, yeah?
Anyway the woman in favor of castration for shitty parents was a woman called Samantha Brick, better known across the internet for being a massive prick. She said exactly what you figure she would say, ie bad parents are bad, lets stop them being bad by being bad to them, but its ok because the government will do it so its fine. Very heavy handed and scare-mongering, but with the touch of ‘yeah, but the government will take care of that messy business, it’ll be the law so we won’t have to worry about it’.
The second woman I’m ashamed to say I didn’t catch her name, but she was much more articulate. She pointed out how terrible an idea it is to decide to legally castrate somebody, how it has serious echos of Nazi Germany were a pretty similar thing actually happened, and how it’s unnecessary and quite a terrible thing. She suggested just not allowing these people to have children without having to mutilate people, have a ban on people like this, a ten year ban or whatever, where they can’t have kids, if they do their kids are taken into the state. A more expensive option, probably, but also a much more humane reaction. She also underlined the point that up to that point in the interview, the focus had been on women and not men (the mother vs the father) and how little sense any of this meant, how alarmingly heavy handed the whole thing seemed. She ALSO pointed out the fact that should women like this undergo such a terrible violation of human rights such as castration, then suddenly they’re not remembered as scary baby murder but they’re now somewhat of a martyr, a person prosecuted by the state in a horrific way, and the focus becomes less about their past and more about their future, how they’ll rise up against such a thing. We’ll forget all about how they killed their kids and the whole process will have broken down into an unnecessary farce.
Samantha Brick was having none of this. I have since found out that Samantha Brick writes for the Daily Mail, and everything makes sense. What if this child murderer ACTUALLY HAS another child, and that CHILD turns out to be a PEDOPHILE?! If only we’d have castrated that woman like the Daily Mail said! More pedophiles on the streets, and it’s all because our country doesn’t have a law where people have to be LEGALLY CASTRATED. Thats why Britain is going to the dogs, guy.
The worst bit came at the end. They did a little poll (to see what YOU think!) based on the persuasive arguments of these two people. The poll was certainly overwhelming, 96% of people thought that introducing legal castration as a law in Britain was A GOOD IDEA. Only 4% of people thought that it was an extremely uncool and disturbing thing to even want to introduce or think about. Only 4%. Now, I’m well aware that This Morning’s polls do not quite count as definitive evidence, nor is this actually a law that is being considered, but that hit me pretty hard right there. 4% of the people watching that show agreed with me, and 96% thought its a cool idea for the government to take it upon themselves to decide which women they get to poke around with, that it’s a totally brilliant idea to just operate on people we don’t like. Maybe we should just do brain surgeries on the bad people, try to take out the bad bits of their brains, and then they won’t be bad anymore! Or maybe, we should just round up all the bad people and stick ‘em into camps, keep ‘em away from us, that way they won’t have the chance to be bad around us, us better people. Thats a good idea, right Daily Mail? Just segregate the bad from the good, yeah? Sorted. Thank god our countries motto isn’t We The People, huh? Imagine 96% of the country making the rules. Scary.
So my manager came back from holiday today, and he bought me a little present back from Portugal. You wear one little Hello Kitty ring in work and suddenly you’re a superfan… Although it is a pretty sweet lighter
He sure is, little duck buddy. But not as good as Pizza! Or a reliable and steady income.
So I figure that this year I’ll dress as Paracelsus, the giant key from Guilty Gear, for Halloween this year. I’ll need a girl to drag me around and dress up in bandages as A.B.A though, any takers?
