anonymous asked:

For a while now, I'm suspected that chansey might be a (really fat) leucistic axolotl. The colours match perfectly, and it seems to have appendages on its head that resemble axolotl gills. Plus, chansey is known to be a pokemon who heals others, often working for pokemon centers, and axolotl are known for their incredible healing capabilities in real life. I was wondering your thoughts on this?

I can definitely see the similarities!

In the Pokemon fandom, every once in a while you stumble upon a ‘Pokeballs are $200′ joke. In reference to how Pokeballs cost 200 of the in-game currency:

What a lot of fans, especially more casual ones, don’t seem to realize is that the currency in the Pokemon games it based on the Japanese yen. The symbol for the currency in the games even resembles the yen symbol:

In fact, according to Bulbapedia, the ‘Poke dollar’ symbol was specifically created for the English translations of the games, and the original Japanese versions use the yen symbol.

Now, for perspective, although the exact exchange rate naturally varies, a US dollar is equivalent to about 120 Japanese yen. So, 200 yen is about $1.67. 

A Pokeball in the Pokemon games actually cost less then two bucks. 

There’s a REASON we see so many young kids training Pokemon, especially early in the games. The cost of investing into a Pokeball to try catching their own Pokemon easily falls into the range of a typical kid’s allowance. A Potion for healing after battles is 300 (or about $2.50), but since Pokemon Centers offer their healing services for free, that’s a moot point.

Youngsters in the early game only give within a range from 50-150 of the currency, which is about equivalent to $0.40-$1.25. The first Gym Leader in Hoenn Region, Roxanne, give 1,680 in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, equivalent to about $14. Which is about right for the equivalent of a middle or high school honors student. A later Gym Leader, Winona, gives 4,200, or about $35. The Champion, Steven, gives 11600, or $96.67.

The winnings from enemy Trainers varies, but Ace Trainers seem to give out about 1500 or $14 on average, give or take. Swimmers (especially common later in ORAS), award a range from 400-800, or $3.33-$6.67.

Vitamins (such as Calcium, Iron, and HP UP), cost 9,800 or $81.67 each. An Ultra Ball cost 1,200, or $10. A Paralyze Heal costs the same as a Pokeball, while an Awakening is half that. A Revive is 1,500, or $12.50.

What’s the point of doing this? Well, for one, to get a better sense of the in-game economics, which can be hard to grasp if one doesn’t realize the in-game ‘Poke dollars’ are based on the Japanese yen. And a look at said economics reveals some interesting details.

First, it shows basic Pokemon training and raising is well within the affordability of a ten-year old, or older. Which makes sense as Pokemon is aimed at younger kids, and the develops would want them to have the sense that going on a Pokemon journey is something they could do if they somehow ended up in the Pokemon world.

On the other hand, it also shows there’s really not that much money to be made in Pokemon raising and traning, unless you battle frequently and regularly against higher-level opponents regularly and and win. Which is…very much in line with how professional sports work in real-life. Pokemon battling gets compared to a sporting event a lot for a reason. The initial 3-D games were even called Pokemon *Stadium.* Parallels are frequently drawn between the Pokemon League tournaments and the Olympics in the anime. The low money output is probably also why we often see Gym Leaders and the like working other jobs.

Just something interesting I decided to look into. I’m a Pokemon fan first, before any other fandom, and always will be. It’s shocking that I haven’t written any meta on it yet.

Hope you enjoyed!

EDIT:  As pointed out by invenblocker:

The 1000000 price for the bicycle translates to $8259.51, which is the price of a top quality bike for proffesionals.

Excellent catch! Helps explain why the bikes can ride through stuff like snow and sand. They are of excellent make.

And it also helps explain why the bike shop owners are happy to give out their bikes to a prospective Pokemon Trainer for free (whether through a voucher or otherwise). Your average Trainer taking the Gym challenge puts those bikes through the *wringer.* Riding them along mountains, through marshes, and even through snow. But a bike being able to endure that is the kind of thing a professional rider would look for, and desire.

Most Pokemon Trainers will never be able to afford the bikes, but are in one of the best positions to push them to their limits. So giving them out for free is actually a clever marketing move. Imagine a potential buyer seeing a Trainer riding one of those bikes in Lillycove, and said Trainer reveals they rode it from Rustboro (which means they rose it around a mountain, several caves, a few marshes, and possibly other environments I’m not thinking of right now). That’s a hell of an impression to make, and a fast, easy way to sell the buyer on getting the bike themselves, especially if they ride competitively.

Case in point, in Pokemon Gold/Silver and their re-makes, the bike shop even gives you the bike specifically as ‘advertising.’ After you’ve ridden it around long enough, you get a call saying that because of you doing so, their sales have shot through the roof (and happily tell you to keep the bike). And it’s no wonder why.

Sorry I’m late to the party with this pokemon crossbreed meme, I had finals all week and was just itching to draw these cool cats! I tried to make breeds that would represent real life wild cats, cause really I’ll take any excuse to draw those.

official ranking of every vaporeon sprite on bulbapedia

good!! her fins are very nice and she is striking a nice little pose

much better in design! she looks more cat like which is very good and she has much more color! a good sprite all around 

strangely dog like and has odd fins on her legs. not too good but still enjoyable 

a good action pose and a very nice design! this one brings a smile to my face. Very Good

this one is perfect! her design is spot on perfect. she looks so ready to battle too!! 10/10 the perfect sprite 

somehow became cyan but thats okay! she is still ready for battle but a little more cautious this time. pretty good!

lots of Personality! she is doing a dance for us and it is very good!! this is a fun sprite and should be appreciated 

she has calmed down a lot. she looks much more regal like a real mermaid should. i like how it shows off her tail. a little boring but a good sprite none the less! 

i like how it shows the full length of her amazing tail! not much personality but it shows off how good looking vaporeon really is and i enjoy that

back to sitting but this one has a little more personality which is very good! mouth is open and she seems to have a happy expression!! im happy if she is happy

kind of lifeless which is sad. vaporeon should be happy and full of life!! not very good but still a good pokemon!

On the subject of the one way I’d say internet fandoms have changed…

I mentioned in my previous post that one major difference I’ve seen from the fandoms of the 90s and the fandoms of today is that you get people using fandom to scream about social issues.

But after talking with it with some folks over Discord I remembered… that’s not entirely new.

A lot of folks here are too young to remember what happened with things like Pokemon and Harry Potter back in the 90s. (Or even further back, the old rallies against things like Dungeons and Dragons.)

People burned books. People tried to ban TV shows. People screamed that you shouldn’t read these books, play these games, watch these shows, because if you did, you would be possessed by demons, you would try to use psychic powers, you would start to abuse animals.

But the thing was… the vast majority of kids knew the stuff they were reading/playing/watching was fictional. Yes, there was that one kid who jumped out a window thinking he could fly like a Pidgeotto, but that’s one kid out of millions. Does an entire show need to be cancelled because one person did not understand that humans do not have the ability to fly like birds? Folks in the fandoms knew that the Pokemon they were catching and trading were purely fictional, that you couldn’t actually wave a stick around and whisper some bad latin to make something float into the air.

You’ll still hear bits of that here and there–people totally detached from fandom screaming about how a show or book will make you do bad things–but for the most part that’s quieted down quite a bit.

…Sort of.

After thinking about it… that sort of stuff really hasn’t gone away. It’s resurfaced, not outside of fandom, but inside fandom, in the form of fandom policing.

“DON’T SHIP THIS PAIRING, OR YOU’LL THINK THIS KIND OF RELATIONSHIP IS OKAY IN REAL LIFE!”

“YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO LIKE THIS CHARACTER! HE DID BAD THINGS AND YOU’RE SUPPORTING THOSE BAD THINGS!”

“IF YOU CRITICIZE THIS CHARACTER’S ACTIONS, YOU’LL WIND UP ATTACKING REAL-LIFE VICTIMS!”

To me, this doesn’t sound much different from the old cry of “DON’T PLAY POKEMON, OR YOU’LL BECOME GREEDY AND EVIL AND TRY TO INTERACT WITH DEMONS!” and “IF YOU READ HARRY POTTER, YOU’LL SELL YOUR SOUL TO THE DEVIL!”

Yes, you will get the occasional idiot who thinks that because they saw a character they like do something bad, that means it’s okay for them to do that bad thing, too. But that’s not most of the fandom. Not that that will stop the fandom police from trying to censor every single fandom member due to the actions of one or two.

So in short… I guess fandom has changed a little, but only in that the censorship is now coming from the inside rather than the outside.

History repeats itself, I guess.

I don’t think pokemon heights are, like, the size of the sprite, per say. I know the label is “Height:”, but I don’t think it’s really that simple.

Say you have a snake Pokemon, like seviper. Is its height as seen in its sprite pose really 8'10"? No, it’s a snake and if it wasn’t posing it’d probably be pretty “short”, height-wise. So 8'10" is probably how long it is, because that’s how you generally measure snakes in real life.

Even quadrupedal pokemon, their heights probably aren’t the entirety of their sprite. As far as I’m aware, animals like dogs and horses are usually measured to their shoulder height, not head height, since they could droop their head or hold it high, which would change their height drastically. So a rapidash isn’t 5'07" tall as seen in its sprite, it’s 5'07" tall to the shoulder, which means it’s actually taller than you’d expect from the listed height.

Bird and bat Pokemon are probably measured by wingspan. What sounds more likely, a crobat that’s 5'11" tall, or a crobat with a 5'11" wingspan? And fish are usually measured in length, so fish pokemon would also be measured in length, not height.

I would say humanoid and other bipedal pokemon are Actually measured by height, but probably just to the top of the head. The height probably doesn’t count crests, like on gallade and bisharp, or ears, like on lopunny and lucario.

Pokemon that don’t follow the anatomy of Common Animals™ would be measured differently from case to case. Electrode would have a diameter of 3'11", honedge would have a blade length of 2'07", etc

Also, I would say the listed “Height” is probably just an average of the species. Heights between individuals of most species can almost certainly vary from each other by at least several inches.

It’s about time I jumped on this pokemon species variant bandwagon, and what better pokemon to start with than my own mascot, omanyte! All the variants above are based on real life fossil ammonite morphospecies, except for Vulgaris which is of course the common, standard lord helix we all know and love.

yooo, I really apologize for my long absence! There were some real life things that kept me occupied for a longer time than expected and I also kinda lost confidence in my artistic abilities. So I decided it would be better if I’d work on my personal projects, but of course I couldn’t resist drawing some more fusions. You might notice some minor style changes. I used thinner lines and added some more detailed textures, I hope you guys don’t mind!

It is the funniest thing to me when my birds engage in extended displays of macho bullshit because they look like adorable little baby pajama roosters but they act like big angry dudes looking for a fight.

Alternatively, now when I see big dudes trying to intimidate each other and chest puff in movies and real life, all I really see are my dumb little pokemon birds trying to dance aggressively at each other.

DAY 11 and 12 of the Pokémon February challenge - Favourite Sinnoh and Unova Pokémon!

Yeah I’ve had a really busy week so I am falling behind with the challenge lol. Here is a rushed mash of the last two days. But yeah, Luxray and Zebstrika are just so badass. Now I love lions and zebras in real life, so give them electricity and a cool colour palette, and I’m sold.

[[ audible sweating ]]
that’s a really tricky question..
when I was little I’d say pikachu, then I started saying haunter; but I don’t think I’ve ever had a real ‘favorite’, I can’t decide anything for my life lmaoo

I did this a little while ago, the first 15 are pretty accurate, none of these are really set in order tho tbh

Ghibli games masterpost

Did you know that studio Ghibli made games that WEREN’T NI NO KUNI?  Well they did! They worked on most of them uncredited, though so lets break it down:

JADE COCOON (PSX)

Jade cocoon is a weird game.  On one hand I’m not entirely sure it’s technically ‘playable’.  On the other hand, it has a fantastically haunting sense of atmosphere.  The backgrounds are all prerendered and the music is mostly atmospheric.  You catch monsters like in pokemon, except you can merge them together and they all end up looking like clumps of low res polygons.  The characters that HAVE designs, though, are very much reminiscent of like, a beta version of Princess Mononoke.  If you’re a fan and have some patience, it is very much worth a look!

JADE COCOON 2 (PS2)

The designs still rock, but the environments feel sterilized, less dangerous than before.  There’s also a bunch of grating anime stereotypes added in- I didn’t get to far with this one, maybe you can!

MAGIC PENGEL: THE QUEST FOR COLOR (PS2)

If you play one game on this list, make it Magic Pengel.  The game’s claim to fame is that you can draw your own characters in 3 dimensions, and they come to life.  And it works!  Then you battle them turn based rock-paper-scissors style at one of the local arenas.

What makes this game for me is that its the only game on the list that actually feels like playing through a ghibli movie.  The town feels alive, the characters are all fun and unique, the music sounds great, and the game even has that weird longing for the sky.  It’s first person, too, so it’s really the closest you can get to being in a ghibli movie.

GRAFFITI KINGDOM (PS2)

I don’t like this game.  Ostensibly it’s the sequel to Magic Pengel, and the drawing system is the same (improved) but the game itself is a really generic action/platformer.  Apparently miyazaki directed some of the cutscenes himself but they all look like garbage and so does this game

LOSTMAGIC (DS)

Lostmagic is a fun little game- sort of a combination monster catching RTS.  You also cast spells by drawing symbols, and you can combine symbols for combination spells, it’s pretty cool!  The story is charming enough and all the designs are neat, so this is one I’d actually recommend.  There’s a split midway through the story though, and I think I kind of got hung up there and never finished the game.  There’s a wii sequel, but honestly I don’t know much about it, or if ghibli’s designers were even involved.

NI NO KUNI (PS3)

Ni No Kuni is okay, I guess.  It mimics the aesthetic of studio Ghibli, but not the soul.  Honestly, it’s basically Blue Dragon if Blue Dragon was good.  Don’t play Blue Dragon.  I think I stopped playing the game after me and a friend spent an hour scouring the spellbook for a magic word that ended up being “Open Says-a-me”.  The game was originally going to be DS exclusive, and was going to include a real spellbook-  I wonder if that version was closer to the original vision?

Let me know if I missed anything, homies!

EDITSS:

greetings from the future (present) ((2016)) since this list I learned that Nintendo actually got help from some of Ghibli’s artists on Mole Mania for the original Gameboy!

MOLEE MANIA (GB)

 The stage– a desperate father, willing to do ANYTHING(terrorism) to save his children (i havent played mole mania)

Miyamoto (not yet a talentless idiot) directed this game, and it shared an engine with Zelda: Link to the Past, I think their workers were spread so thin between these projects that they managed to strike a deal with Ghibli, to borrow some guys to help with art assets.  Odds are it was mainly concept and promo stuff, but Mole mania’s art is a notch above usual for the time.  I can’t seem to find my source- it’s probably an out of print magazine???  but i’m absolutely sure on this one guys, i’d stake my reputation as a JOURNALIST and a CONMAN on it.

bonus:
 not a videogame, but i dont have enough material for a whole article on this… people kept talkin bout that shitty show goro made, but Miyazaki’s actual, REAL protege (asst. director of Spirited Away) already made a show with the eureka seven guys.  it’s called Xam’d: Lost Memories !  It’s very grown up-violence, relationships, worth of life- not really anime bullshit.  the art is top notch, ghibli lookin, and the monsters all look like kyogre from pokemon sapphire

  • “hey,,,,,,,,,,so i’m applepi – wAIT NO I MEaNt– you – you are applepi,,,,,,,uh anyway my name’s (nickname) AKA (Y/N) — hOld on nO my nAME iS (Y/N) and my alias is (nickname)”
  • and at this point you’ve kind of just accepted your fate 
  • right as you were about to blast your ds pinged???? and you’re like “sorry gotta check this, this could be vvv important
  • and it was a friend request from applepi!!!!!
  • a smile immediately forms on your face because you thought that you donked up so hard just a moment ago 
  • after a while kuroo kinda just leaves and you two are sitting under a tree messaging each other through your ds’s talking about the newest video game releases, sometimes you would draw something for your response and it would be so fricking c*rny that you would hear kenma chORTLE 
  • when y’all were done talking and had to go your separate ways and you were home, staring at the ceiling and suddenly you were just like,,,,”dat boi,,,,,,he was kind,,,,,,i wanna be super friends w him.
  • EVENTUALLY y’all would open up more to each other and start talking irl (though you guys still talked through ds bc why not?) 
  • it was a long process but you guys eventually started hanging out after school hours. 
  • sometimes you would wait for him after his practice just so you two could have a break from studying and school and stress and sports by going to a coffee shop y’all found a lil while back 
  • y’all would get your favorite drinks and just kind of enjoy each other’s presence and play animal crossing so y’all could exchange furniture and clothes and just have a dandy time
  • but one time you were so caught up in beating this one boss in Rune Factory 4™ (if you’ve never played it, pls play it, it’s a vv nice game n you can date cute boys n girls and fight and farm and it’s pretty #notspons) and kenma just wanted to trade and visit your town in animal crossing but you were like “not until i beat this boss i nEed to accomplish this. this is my one goal in life right now”
  • you eventually get frustrated, and passive aggressively shut the device like nope, and you just sigh and take a sip of your drink
  • and he just sighs and takes ur ds and beats the boss with complete ease and you see the defeated sign pop up 
  • you look at him,
  • then back at the ds
  • then back at him
  • “you, my friend, are a god”
  • “the boss wasn’t that hard-”
  • “listen, i never said i was good at video games”
  • “are you gonna try and beat it by yourself when you get home?”
  • “bingo.”
  • and he smiles that smol smile of his because you’re such a dO R K
  • if there’s any disagreement between you two, honestly y’all wouldn’t get into a full fledged fight, y’all would talk it out 
  • but let’s be honest
  • you guys wouldn’t get into real fights
  • the most fighting you would do would be you probably calling ‘hacks’ on him for being a better Pokemon™ trainer
  • when you’re sad or down, let’s be real, kenma wouldn’t really know how to handle it, so he’d do his best to make you feel better by offering to bring over junk food and your fave movies 
  • he’d also offer to listen about what’s going on in your life, and if you decided not to tell him, he wouldn’t pry, he would respect your privacy and ask if there’s anything else he could do
  • y’all would have a nice time when you were feeling down and you would fall asleep on the couch he’d look away from the movie to see you sleeping (snoring or not)
  • and his heart would go doki doki
  • “shoot, i’m In Love™ with them”
  • after that things wouldn’t be real awkward because kenma know’s how to #hidehisfeelings but of course, a thing or two would slip out, and he wouldn’t even add like “because you’re my friend”
  • and of course blush on occasion
  • overall, y’all are gr8 chill friends (and potential partners ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) who enjoy each other’s presence, play ds together, and meme together
  • you know what they say; friends who meme together, stay together
  • but he would lowkey meme and roaS T you at the perfect time 


(a/n): i regret nothing. i was gonna add more but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
