i love both of these pokemon

Okay, but the new Motivation mechanic in Pokemon Go…

Pokemon you put into a gym will stay there as long as they are motivated. They lose motivation when they lose a battle, or slowly over time. This temporarily weakens them, lowering their CP. You can build it back up by feeding them berries.

And it appears to be in-character. 

As in, my Gyarados and another player’s Rhydon are both keen, battle-ready, hard-working Pokemon that have lost very little motivation in the time they’ve been in the gym. 

But also in the gym is a Snorlax who is has fought no battles but is literally shedding motivation before my eyes and needs at least one berry an hour to keep his lazy arse in the gym.

I love this game.

summer 2016: get outside and actually exercise for once!!! pokemon go is here and you can actually live out your childhood fantasy by catching pokemon and becoming a gym leader!!! whats that??? you can also join TEAMS with hot-looking leaders with just enough basic traits to make you want to dedicate the next three weeks of your life to them???? wow!!!!!

  • Pokemon: All trainers must be at least 10 to train Pokemon. If a child under 10 "owns" a Pokemon, it is only permitted if it is registered as a "family pet". They, however, are permitted to accompany older trainers on their journeys, but they may not participate in battles, the league, or any other form of Pokemon Contest.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh: Who cares what age kids playing the game are. Everyone in this world is going to summon Satan one day or another, let's go ahead and start them off early.
"Game over, insert coin"

I just love the headcanon that Crowley says this line because he plays video games. Like imagine it.

When Pacman first becomes popular all the machines in the area have the highscore menu dominated by AJC and 666 and other variations

He has one of those systems with the joysticks and games on casettes and tries to make Aziraphale play Battle Tanks with him

He buys a Gameboy color ostensibly because he needs to be familiar with it for the purpose of encouraging mass consumerism, but in reality he has copies of both Pokemon Red and Blue because he wants the version-exclusives.

Skyrim comes out and he spends 3 solid days straight playing it because he LITERALLY does not need to eat, sleep, or use the loo

He plays Overwatch and tanks that don’t protect their healers find themselves mysteriously booted off because their connection is malfunctioning. Especially if they keep spamming “i need healing” at user SnakeMan666
