Do people really think Pokemon is sexist??

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 14, 2013, 7:55 AM
LIKE IS THIS A THING?
I hope it's people being sarcastic BUT?????
I saw people complain about the new lion Pokemon : Pyroar
Claiming the difference between the male and female forms is gender binary bullshit.

UM???




Have you ever seen lions?
Like
sexual dimorphism is A FACT OF NATURE GUys???

Pokemon has done tons of gender differences between Pokemon before, don't be silly.
Besides, the female form looks x10000000 more badass, just sayin.
goodnight

Well that's not 100% true my Pokemon adventure has gone as follows:

Yellow -> Red -> Gold -> Silver -> Crystal -> Black 2 

The reason I don't like them is because games have gotten stupidly easy, after about ~2003 it's kind of annoying really, they're no real challenge in them and that was something important to me when playing a game. Now games seem to hold your hand through the WHOLE game, for example in something like black 2, I'm half way through the game, and it's like and all the dialog consist of is stuff like "Oh did you know that water Pokemon are weak against electric Pokemon" and just so much fluff its like wow... this makes me realize I'm playing a game that has an intended audience of like 7yr olds. Also after what 600 Pokemon, there imagination and creativity is really starting to show... ... ... Thats why I don't play any of the newer games in franchises I grew up with, because they're not the same, they're watered down insults, there are of course exceptions to that, I did enjoy Castlevania Lord of Shadows, but the games in the Castlevania franchise were always pretty hard lol I think I've only beat two of them to date ...

So I honestly don't think I'm gonna be missing out that much with X and Y...

Well I finally did break down and got it (Pokemon X), because I did like some of the new features, such as the 3D everything, the storyline was same old same old though, kid becomes champ, team trying to ruin everyone life or steal everyone Pokemon, kid beats team, end of story... didn't really use super training because I was never a hardcore state builder, I catch the Pokemon I like, and they're my team, liked the Nintendo dogs feature that was cool and I'm actually pretty good at the yarn ball game. So I must say it was a lot better then Black II, but still falls in line with my ... this game was pretty easy opinions... though I did notice a lot less hand holding and a lot more focus around storyline. Can't really tell if what I typed made sense though as I have a huge headache from sleep deprivation and having to write about 50-60 programs over the past week in my programming class ... so oh well >w>

wat seriously
I actually don't talk to every person in every house, so I didn't know that. XD When I do come across them, I actually just dismiss them as those "friendly tip pop up boxes" that almost 30% of every game I've played has, lol.

Pretty much, I don't check /every house/ but I do go in a lot of them and talk to a lot of NPC's as they often give you free stuff or wanna battle etc. It's just I feel like I'm playing one giant tutorial with most modern games... ... ... *goes back to playing Dwarf Fortress* (which is absurdly hard game with no learning curve what so ever still kinda fun though :D)
