Little known fact about Pokemon in-game: they're not difficult enough that you need to worry about team composition. Just make sure you have distinct types (both on offense and defense) and you're generally okay.

I actually never really knew you but welcome back!

I really really love using Marth, and I'm glad because he's my favorite character that they included in the game (wasn't that fond of Fates). Game is fun as hell.

I've been co-streaming it with a few friends, but mainly story mode, and we'll be continuing this Saturday.

Blaze, you mention LGBT issues as having passed through the White House - which is true.
Passed through and ignored.

Gay marriage was legalized by the SCOTUS in Obergefell vs Hodges with a 5-4 majority. Meaning it took a lawsuit to do it, and the federal government cannot make it illegal short of a constitutional amendment which they will not have the supermajority to do. Currently there are pro-discrimination laws in the books because the federal government has been deferring this to a states rights issue (thanks, Congress).

Before that, gay marriage was deferred to states rights. My home state being one of the half dozen that legalized it before the SCOTUS legalized it nationwide.

The way i see it, the problem with our society is that the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and nothings happening to change that. So we need to teach that this idea of success and richness isnt the most important thing, and that being a good and decent person is what really matters.

This is far too naive. People are taught this and preach it, but it's not congruent with how they act (or how they vote).

At any rate, I'm not sure what "social change" you're talking about. You can view religion as a movement, and movements do inspire social change. You could argue also that religion created social norms and anything against religion is social change, or you can also argue that going to church on Sunday puts you at the whim of a pastor who can bring up a sermon to invoke some degree of change. Like any movement, it can change people's views over time, for better or for worse.

To start things off, long time no talk MM64. Marth and Roy are in Fire Emblem games from now on, thanks to amiibo support. This joke came out way more stiff that I thought it would.

but just how portable is the Switch for that to be justified?

Pretty portable. ~3-4 hours of battery life with car charging options if I'm recalling right, and the docking station is really compact.

If you had asked me 15 years ago, I probably would have said "Capcom" without a doubt... but I've played a couple Arc System Works fighters since then, and they're pretty solid, so that's probably who I'd want making my 2D fighter now.* Arcsys would probably be more suited for one idea I have than the other, though.
Arcsys has always been phenomenal. Older Guilty Gear games still stand up to today, as do other stuff they've made like Persona 4 Arena.

Are you going anywhere with this?

PKMN.NET / Re: Name Rater Too Backed Up

It's not. Getting someone to rate them will prove difficult -- because there's a relatively large backlog, and nobody's going to want to work on this that much.

I mean the attempt was made to such, but for some reason (that I plead the fifth on) it died out. Meanwhile about the new gen of pokemon not being in, the people who update the site also have lives outside of it, meaning you may have to wait a while before that happens. However, if all you're looking for is someone to call you an idiot for naming a pokemon something, I am always happy do that.

It's not so much we have lives outside of it, though we are all busy, but it's also a matter of motivation. The forum does seem dead, and I'm honestly too exhausted (and I have a million other hobbies I want to pursue outside of my work) to really do much with it, on top of being afraid to really do anything with site UI. There's a million other Pokemon sites with raw information.

However, just to avoid being a downer and seeing what can get done, I will make a thread this weekend about activity and what you can do to help. We can definitely add the new generation of Pokemon easily, but getting someone to rate them will be difficult.

I understand your complaint, but keep in mind that the previous name rater has been ridiculously busy with their own life and some other members have been as well.
