First off, no. Not PTA as "Parent-Teacher-Association" or whatever. I have no children (thank god), so I obviously wouldn't be a part of that thing. I'm referring to a Pokemon forum site...of which I had taken a very lengthy stay from after growing tired of the whole role playing thing. I've still stopped by to silently stalk some other threads and respond to PMs, but I've been inactive for quite a bit over there.
No doubt some of my watchers are aware as to what I'm talking about. For those people, keep in mind that I do intend to make some changes regarding my character roster on there. For starters, I'm removing everyone that's crucially involved within the Xander storyline...which are a LOT of characters - pretty much a family of 6, one current antagonist, one...former antagonist that was turned into a fish, and an entire village. My reasons for this: they were built for fighting...which is pretty much against the whole theme of the forum itself (the war-trio is going too...or, at least Koler and the mute Kadabra are. Larson is still a pretty fun character and quite gentle, so I might keep him around) and I'm pretty sure KZ isn't coming back to help me move that along (speaking of which, I'm probably going to have to find a new owner for Cyrus, the depressingly cynical Lugia...who is surprisingly fun to work with (I swear that isn't sarcasm)). So yeah...going to make some cuts.
I do plan on keeping the fun characters around, like Chipper, Bill, Ben, and the Gengar twins. Max (Typhlosion...and NOT the same character in the PMD-E stuff, I might add, for those who aren't as aware) would be replaced with someone else. I don't know the name, gender, or what species the character will be just yet, but I do have a very fitting profession in mind for them...and that's all I'm sharing.
Keep in mind that this all depends on one massive "if" though. It's getting more and more tempting to hop back into RPing, but I don't want to do it too quickly and just wind up getting bored again.
Now, onto the other thing.... IGN's trailer for the upcoming 3rd-gen remake titles: Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I'll admit...it's making me sway from my earlier decision to skip the game.
I still have horrible memories of my time in Sapphire, but IGN's recent trailer on this 3rd-gen remake has put some very fun points in the spotlight and even revealed a potentially new feature in Pokemon Amie (basically dress-up). Team that up with the fact that I have my 12 dream-teams already (I'm sure Pokemon Bank will be compatible with this) and all the talk of new mega-stones...I'm starting to be swayed against my previous decision to skip this game. xP I'll still need to mull it over...maybe wait until after its release to see if the game's story has been improved before finally deciding.
That's all for now guys. Later!
