like 7 years ago on my first heartgold file i had a togekiss that i taught metronome. now, being a kid with little to no knowledge on proper battling and also fond of depending on chance, i used the hell out of metronome, it was this togekiss’s main move more or less.
which did about as well as you expect from depending on metronome, except in one battle
i was fighting some grass type. i use metronome, metronome becomes fly
all fine and dandy
the opponent uses encore
so togekiss needs to finish fly, right, it’s a two-turn move? except it can only use metronome due to encore. so it does. and gets some totally normal one-turn move that is definitely not fly
togekiss proceeds to make its attacks without ending its fly mid-turn invulnerability, for eternity. i can’t even open a menu to switch out or use an item. it keeps using metronome endlessly
it eventually ends when the opponent faints & i had the option of switching out, but 12-year-old me was severely freaked out that my togekiss became invisible, invincible, and self-commanding
EDIT: ur right it had to be encore then fly, cause it cant hit through the invincibility (this happened when i was 12 i forgot little details like move order oops,,)
Strange Shit That Has Happened On Game Grumps And Isn’t Even Discussed
Barristan Selmy from Game of Thrones opens a random episode for no apparent reason and with no explanation
Arin scream-sings Circle of Life in a public place
The fucking ads are the stuff of nightmares
Rob Schneider comes on Game Grumps after Arin completely rips apart his tv show for a full episode
Arin opened a set of 10 or so episodes with monologues about following his twitter, cooking your own food, that he’s really a bat portraying the character of Arin Hanson, that his editor is too handsome, he wants to sell out to Wendy’s, and then hits himself as hard as he can with a plastic bat. This is giffed but not commented on.
Chris Pratt likes the Super Mario Galaxy playthrough, confirms he is a melon with his name written on it.
Arin assembles what looks like a several hundred person mob to go to a random Wendy’s in Ohio, because he wants to sell out to them but they won’t return his tweets.
They’ve got a fucking TV show coming out with the guys from Rick and Morty? Why is this not mentioned more?
L o v e l y d a y f o r c r i c k e t
Arin and Ross abused the ‘give a free ride get a free ride’ code on Uber by sending theirs out to 3.5 million people. Reportedly, Arin now has over 800 free rides.
Ross and Barry sold their pokemon fanart in an art gallery.
Seriously the fucking ads? In one of them Barry is turned upside down while Arin growls in a corner and then time-lapse punches Barry into a wall, and this is an advert for Lootcrate
Dan repeatedly hit a two pound gummy bear against a table to try and remove its head
A professor of theoretical physics quit his fucking job to do the show
It looks like Yuuri and Victor are crashing some wedding and Yuuri’s like at the point where he’s tipsy enough to tell really good stories about drunk Phichit but like, not tipsy enough to start going into stripper banquet mode
when you’re in a really tiny fandom/ship a really rare pairing and have already read the entire ao3 tag multiple times so you have to start looking for fics on other websites with lower standards of quality:
*writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
*witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*
Oh man. This is it. This will be my legacy! *sweats into fic* *bleeds into fic* *cries into fic* *spends days perfecting the grammar and verbage and sex scenes* *has 15 betas look over it*
Okay. It is finally time to release my baby on the world. Here you go fandom. You're welcome.
Ha, cute. *like* *kudos*
* * *
same fanfic writer:
*writing* Whatever. This is shit, I don't even care right now. A singing squirrel? Sure, let's do it. Haha, cheesy lines that make no sense, sure. Grammatical errors out the wazoo? Why not. No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.
OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU HAVE EVER GRANTED US WITH, WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE, OMG, I NEED A SEQUEL IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE. WHAT THE. I'M NOT EVEN WORTHY. *kudosrebloglikereccomment*
lance: do you ever like…think about cascada? about the impact she made on the world?
hunk: i mean, who doesn’t? “everytime we touch” basically made youtube with its presence in those naruto x sasuke amvs. not to mention that it’s an absolute bop, naruto amvs aside. “everytime we touch” is such a happy and fun song. i want it played at my wedding AND funeral.
lance: all true, all true, but she didn’t only write “everytime we touch”; you’re forgetting “be my bad boy,” aka, one of the best songs of our generation. it still has that fun and poppy feel to it, but the message is one far less happy than “everytime we touch,” which is proof that cascada is a master at writing a multitude of lyrics.
hunk: god, you’re right. and “be my bad boy” also helped build youtube, for basically the same reason as “everytime we touch.” honestly, where would we be without cascada?
lance: [shudders] dude, i don’t even want to think of a timeline without her.
When you date Damien and afterwards and you guys become a thing, you’re at Damien’s manor and you start going through his closet and you’re like, “Ooooo, look at all theese” and while he’s out of the room your Dadsona starts trying on some of Damien’s clothes (ones that fit him properly at least) and then you’re fooling around with one of his cloaks and then Damien comes in and catches you in the middle of your fashion show and Dadsona just freaks out and starts panicking a bit like, “I’m not wearing your clothes, pffttt.” But Damien just smiles and says, “You paired the wrong kinds of black clothing… don’t let the other Goths know about this.” And helps you out with your own Victorian outfit
Damien inviting you to ballroom dancing and he kisses your hand before you two start to dance
