Uh, what? Mawile shows up in Ruby.

Anyhow, I'll be getting the Ruby remake for the same reason: I had Ruby when I was younger.

I am set towards getting Alpha Sapphire when it comes out. Mainly because blue, and have you ever tried finding an authentic copy of a gen 3 game ANYWHERE? It's hard. Too damn hard. Hell, when it's easier to walk up to a con booth and buy a Japanese copy of Silver without even trying than it is to deliberately search for a local copy of a newer game then we have problems.

(yes i know there's a good supply of real gen 3 games but i'd rather pay $40 for a remake instead of searching for a real copy less than $20 because i am that anally cheap)

I see what you did there. Took the easy way out in preparation for my reply.

Says here in my Amazon history that I got Sapphire for $24, which is arguably more than $20. I recall it going for less than $20 by some unestablished sellers, so I bumped it up a few dollars to lessen the chance of a counterfeit. I paid more for Emerald and LeafGreen, but I got all three of those and they're genuine. It was easy. Real damn easy. Way easier than booking a trip to Japan to--... yeah, you get the joke.

EDIT:
Why Sapphire if I already had Emerald? Well, I wanted something I could generate Jirachi on, and... well... Lunatone was the determining factor there.

Speaking of OR/AS, has everyone seen these comparison images yet?

First one has only the Japanese screenshots, whereas this second one (gigantic!) has English screenshots.

Also, look at the very bottom of the second one... They've kept the Secret Base wall indentation!

...Double-posting? But there's good news!



According to Serebii, Secret Bases are going to return! They'll function through StreetPass as expected, but you can also create QR codes to send them to friends. There's also a flag system and Secret Pals system, somewhat reminiscent of Sinnoh's underground and Unova's Join Avenue, so that'll be interesting.

Poké Ball-pattern Vivillon is currently being distributed via Mystery Gift in North America until the 12th. PAL distribution will run the 29th through September 8.

I got Crystal in the mail today. FUKSHIT has two badges and logged out after a bug catching contest. He's got a Crockonaw named ASSLIQUOR, a Growlithe named FIRECROTCH, a Nidoran♀ named NIDODICK, a Scyther named SCIZORTITS, and an egg that's about to hatch. Let's see what it is!.. It's a Pichu! I'm gonna name it SPARKNADS and then replace the internal battery.



Well this is most curious. The battery in the cartridge is the original battery from the time of manufacture (the battery itself is a Maxell). It's still welded to the contacts, and the screw's original threadlock broke when I removed it. I thought those batteries had all died out by now? Oh well. It's 13 years old by this point, so it's due for a replacement anyway. *Swap* There. Drat, lost the save data. One day, battery replacement, one day!

The battery in my copy of Crystal is still working, bought the game around release and have yet to replace it. I should do that soon-ish, tho, as they're obviously only getting older... looks like this battery is dated "01-07", so July 2001 I assume.

...the clock's messed up tho, as I just noticed. According to the game, it's Sunday and 11:10am. That's about 3 days and 8 hours off...

Got Yellow in the mail today (it was part of the same Amazon order as Crystal). If the back of the cartridge is to be believed, it once belonged to Alex.

The seller put an inventory sticker on the back with a barcode, and it's not coming off very cleanly. The sticker was trying to tear and leave bits of paper behind, and there's a sticky residue on the back after having removed it. I was actually quite pleased with the seller otherwise, but this is going to make it a 4-star deal.

And no, I'm not joking.

This battery is still good too, but that's not a surprise. My original Metroid II battery is still going strong. It's that real-time clock in the Gen 2 Pokémon games that makes it dry out.

SCOTTYB doesn't have any badges, has one Pokémon and has only logged 41 minutes.

Time to replace the battery. And while I've got the cartridge case off, I'm gonna scrub away that sticker residue in the sink... Looks like Yellow used a CR1616. Oh well, in goes a CR2025. Aaaaaand... Poop. Lost the save data again. Maybe when I order Gold I can swap out the battery without losing the data. Only one shot left!

A copy of Gold my brother got from my cousin was permanently stuck at the same time, and would even occasionally count up (and down!) about a minute. Weird time stuff tends to be the first sign that the battery is dying, even if the save data is fine.

According to Bulbapedia, three new Mega Evolutions were revealed in CoroCoro (Lopunny, Altaria, and Salamence).

I've been having incredibly unreal luck on Wonder Trade lately. I've gotten two Phiones, shiny Froakie, Raichu AND Tyrunt AND a shiny goddamned Palkia.

I can understand getting Phione, and shiny Raichus and Froakies since they barely look any different. I can understand people straight up lottoing shinies as obvious as a Tyrunt. But even a Palkia is too unreal, let alone a shiny.

I'm wondering if it's possible in any way for one's odds of obtaining special pokemon increases the more Wonder Trade is used. Because in the five months of playing Pokemon X, all of my sweet WT loot has happened in the window of two weeks.

Nah, it seems somewhat logical.

With Pokebank, people that hack/dupe Pokemon are entirely willing to get extras of rare things just to Wonder Trade them (such as a shiny Palkia). Breeders have always been trading away rejects/extras that they get before they finally get their perfect Pokemon, and people know by now that it's not very fun to receive shitty stuff, so they're probably only trading away more interesting things like Phione and baby fossils. (Shinies, though? They must have bad taste. )

Plus, it's been a while since release and there isn't really a horde of players just using Route 1 stuff to Wonder Trade for better things, so it's easier to get some of the better stuff.



As a general rule, if you get something that's obviously way too good to have gotten from Wonder Trade, just assume it's hacked/duped in some way.

Got a gaggle of envelopes in the mail today. I'm now caught up through generation 3.

Lookie what came in the mail today:



Genuine cartridge for less than twenty bones. I win. Would you like your crow with ranch dressing or honey mustard?



Ruby was played by ZEKE for 103 hours and 256 Pokédexes. Let's see what he left me!

Several legendaries, including a Mew, a few shinies, and a Bad Egg. Uh oh! We gots ourselves a jerk hacker. He's got a total of 551 Master Balls. Let's see if any of these transfer forward to Pokémon Bank.

"Attention! There is at least one Pokémon in the Box that cannot be sent. A problem has been detected with one of the Pokémon. Sorry. The problematic Pokémon cannot be sent. Any Pokémon that could not be transported have been removed from the Transport Box."

Everything made it except the Mew and... an Unown that I used for padding? Oh, it says it came from Hoenn. Heh. So now I'm up a Ho-oh, two Lugias, a Groudon, Kyogre and shiny Rayquaza, and a shiny each of Charmeleon, Charizard, Pidgeot and Beedril.

Naughty, naughty ZEKE.



Onto FireRed...

BUT played for 10 hours and has 41 Pokédexes. 5 badges. Let's see if anything worthwhile got left behind...

Nope. Just an ordinary, incomplete game.



And lastly, Gold.

▶NEW GAME

OPTION

Good thing I had the foresight to buy some extra batteries. *Swap*

Well, that just about does it for this round. Got some goodies, even if they're fakes!

Diamond and Pearl showed up today. SoulSilver is in the mail, so I'm juuuust about caught up through generation 4...
__________

Georgi in Diamond has 135 hours logged, so he might have some goodies.

I like the way this guy thinks. He's got all his Pokémon sorted by level in the PC. Although nothing seems noteworthy except this Dialga in his party, so that's the one that will survive the great save file wipe.
__________

COBY in Pearl has a lowly 7 hours and is presently in Hearthome City. He's got a Psyduck in the PC, though! Pass.
__________

Now that I have these, it's time to get me a Hidden Ability version of Dialga and Palkia.

What, just Telepathy? Meh. At least it's not Pressure.

People like me are the reason we can't have nice things.



On the bright side, yay 718 in the Pokédex! This completes the stamp collection save for the three generation 6 event legendaries.

Let me guess, you ransacked the save files?

Although, I am also going for a completed Pokedex* and collection... (*hint hint*) Kinda wish I could repay you with my lolhacked Blastoise I got in a trade, but alas, it fails the legality check for Pokemon Bank, though I could give you my level 1 shiny albeit meh IVs Feebas holding a prism scale now that I think about it.

*Decided to go insane with this goal by having entries for every Pokemon in all seven languages. I'm the pitzpletionist. (though not shiny because oh GOD)
