I can't match the The Pokémon Company donating 100k$ both to the NAACP and to BLM but I can use my platform and my absence of a PR department to say the following:
All cops are bastards, police should be defunded if not so much as abolished. It's time the white US and Europe realize that their lives and comfort are built on the oppression of black people and people of color. I support the revolts everywhere they're happening unconditionally.

Love the unreasonably hard-hitting Fusion Necrozma fight in USUM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoAULhTGIL8
In conclusion I can see Gen I being considered the hardest by some because of the fact that it’s the first iteration of every single mechanic of the Pokémon series so they’re pretty rough around the edge, but in my opinion none of the Pokémon games are daunting challenges in any way
Second, the game breaking glitches:
The first gen has a lot of programming oversights, that’s true, but there are, to my knowledge, game-breaking glitches that players have a significant chance to come accross accidentally. There are also many myths as to which glitches can cause save corruption. MissingNo. doesn’t cause destructive save corruption. It glitches graphics reversibly and momentarily, and also glitches up the hall of fame, but that won’t make your save disappear.
The only save-breaking glitch I can think of is if someone goes to a glitch city without a Pokémon being able to fly or another way to get out like Tunnel or Teleport. This is an occurence that’s highly unlikely to happen voluntarily
First, the broken mechanics. He’s reffering to this image in the video. It has a lot of text, but I’m not putting an image description because the details of its contents are not what I want to focus on, but the fact that these are either:
- Mechanics that the player are just as likely to use as the AI, so they advantage them as much as it disadvantages them
- Stuff that’s so specific or rare that it doesn’t have a significant impact on the game as a whole
- Some stuff like Wrap is annoying, but the ones using them are wild Pokémon and non-major trainers that are easy to defeat
I just watched this video by YouTuber MysticUmbreon ranking Pokémon generations by difficulty: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E4eRpSp0iE
There are some hot takes in it but the biggest for me is his justification to put Gen I at the top spot: broken mechanics, and game-breaking glitches.
I see a lot of newcomers on donphan.social these days and I’m delighted!

- but it's silly and not worth being upset about
this happened yesterday but i'm not trying to subtoot anyone in particular, it's just a thing that happens sometimes
i wish i could talk about pokemon training and battles and stuff on here without people in my mentions telling me that it's fucked up because it's dogfighting
like, yes, of all the "let's take this children's thing and make it dark and edgy" theories, it's by far the most convincing one. in fact, you need to go pretty far out of your way for it to not be the natural conclusion you come to
but the games and anime repeatedly make the point that this is a misunderstanding. the pokemon want to do this just as much as the trainer does. it's canon in the games that the whole reason pokemon attack trainers with pokemon stronger than they are is to be caught and trained and fight
and if you're currently thinking "this sounds like a justification that the humans came up with to justify pokemon trainers": you're right! it does sound like that! but i choose to believe that it's not because this is something that makes me happy. i headcanon the best of all possible worlds because i want it to be a fun wholesome thing. and every time someone tells me it's bloodsport i have to come down from my pokemon-induced good mood and explain the deal to them
and it's a silly thing to be upset about. i don't have to be bummed out by someone else saying that pokemon battles are dogfighitng. and yet, here i am bitching about it when it hasn't even happened today, i just happened to think of it
H… they’re making a beautiful Pokémon fangame based on the Gold and Silver prototypes and other lost Pokémon assets from the various leaks. It looks awesome. I hope they don’t take it down https://twitter.com/EdelweissPkmn
