Apple actually is really into isopods. They just keep misspelling "isopod", which is how we wound up with iPods and iOS.

falinks is such a good pokemon. there should be more pokemon that's just, like, twenty dudes having a good time

i do wish they'd step away from type based gyms at last and move on to themes

they have one use of it in sw/sh and it could easily be the whole way through

like have the early fire/water/grass gyms as usual and the rest could be either weather based, trick room, set up, entry hazards, speed control, status stall etc

i could go on for days and you only need to fill 5. it negates the 'this one pokemon sweeps the gym with super effective moves' problem and more effectively tutorializes comp play

bulletin board "subject topic & thread" paradigm: invites people sharing a common interest or community to read and engage in long-form discussion about something, leaves room for incomplete understanding to develop

status-oriented paradigm: rewards bombastic behavior, incentivizes you to come out swinging with a sound bite instead of asking a question and reaching a consensus within the community, makes everyone afraid of being imperfect so as not to get dunked on or gossiped about without being mentioned

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! 💜
