we’re just pointing out things that aren’t good in Crystal. it doesn’t make us hateful and negative
No, but do you know who is hateful and negative? The people who spam the tags with nothing but regurgitated criticism that’s already been said a million times before and act like anyone who genuinely enjoys Crystal is an idiot with horrible taste.
I’m not saying that you’re the kind of person who does this, but some people are hateful and negative and genuinely seem to want to ruin everyone’s good time by reblogging other people’s posts and adding hate or making entire blogs dedicated to nitpicking Crystal. Those are the kinds of people who are making the fandom a negative place.

I work there, and for the most part we’ll just give you a code if you ask.
Oh, cool! Good to know!
Like I said, I came across a lot of different people saying a lot of different things so I think it all depends on what employee you’ll end up talking to. I figure that most of them will be fine with just giving out codes but you never know.
In any case, I’m planning on preordering Alpha Sapphire when I go to get a code so I’m in the clear.
@pandoradies reblogged your post POKEMON SUPPORTS FAITH, FUCK YEAH!!!… and added:
Hey, thanks for reblogging a post that was meant to be positive and being a total dick about it! You’re right, faith is just so gross!
And what do you mean about taking it out of context? There IS no context. She’s a Trainer that you battle in the Anistar City Gym. I included all of her dialogue, which is “Just because it can’t be explained by science doesn’t mean it’s not real. You can’t explain your love for your Pokemon with science, right? Does that mean it’s not real? I think not!" Also, it doesn’t matter that she’s a random NPC. They included her in the game, so her dialogue is valid. And I never said that this only applied to God and/or religion. It applies to FAITH, or belief in anything that can’t be explained or touched or seen. And I included love because not all of us want to diminish love as just a bunch of chemicals that are secreted in your brain.
I dunno why you’re implying that I’m implying that science and faith don’t go hand in hand or that you can only have one or the other. The exact opposite is true.
I probably spent more time on this than I should but your statements are really irritating me. You took a post that was meant to make people feel good and shit all over it, so congratulations.
I am rather surprised because few Japanese games I played are anti religion.
Pfft, Pokemon isn’t anti anything. Seriously, the games are so wonderfully positive and uplifting! X and Y’s ending credits actually features a beautiful poem that talks about the importance of everyone on Earth banding together to make the most out of the limited time we have here.

Plus it seems way too obvious. “GEE GUYS DO YOU THINK SERENA COULD BE PRINCESS SERENITY I WONDER”
Also, do you think that Sailor MOON could be the MOON Princess? No, it’s probably Sailor Venus instead!
Like, I know that this is the case with 100% of all Sailor Moon mediums, but adding the whole “THERE’S NO WAY SERENA COULD BE PRINCESS
SERENITY SERENA” thing on top of it made it so much worse. So, so much worse.
Also, this is random, but Serena’s line delivery when she finds out that she’s Princess
Serenity Serena is hilarious. She sounds like she just heard a particularly juicy piece of gossip about someone else.

why are you just NOW finding out about this, people have shipped Ash/Pikachu since day 1. And hell, Ash/Latias is semi canon.
I probably should have elaborated on this more; I’ve always known that people ship Pokemon with humans (or draw porn of Pokemon… that’s a whole nother level of creepy) but I had no idea people actually wrote fucking Bulbapedia articles to argue in favor of the ship being “canon.” I just… what? Why, Bulbapedia? Why did you do this.

In the french dub, Usagi is called “Bunny”!
Like 98% of the dubs of the original anime had Usagi as Bunny (or the word for bunny in that particular dub’s language). The English dub really broke the pattern by calling her “Serena.” Don’t get me wrong, Serena’s a very pretty name, but I’ve always preferred Bunny! I think it suits her better. Serena seems too elegant, haha.

I dislike it myself, because it seems like it devalues their choices? Were Kenji and Ikuko’s past incarnations ever interested in each other, or did Queen Serenity just dump them together for Usagi? And even Shingo - there for her, not himself. =/
I don’t think that it makes their choices any less valid. Even if they weren’t interested in each other, they still met and fell in love like any other couple. It’s the same deal with Usagi and Mamoru; they didn’t fall in love because fate “told” them to, they fell in love because they fell in love.
As for Shingo, once again, I didn’t mean to imply that he’s only there as a prop for Usagi. Shingo gets to grow up in the same loving, supportive household and enjoy a happy life on Earth. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

I love that headcannon for Ikuko and I share it but applying it to Kenji and Shingo makes me a little sad somehow… I don’t know how to put it really
How so? I’m really curious!

I don’t know if this article will be helpful or not (reasonstobebeautiful.co…) but the comments might be.
Oh man, I remember ripping this article to shreds a few weeks ago, haha. I’d love to do it again! It seems sourceable, at least.
I’m still looking for more anti-Sailor Moon articles that I can argue against! They’ll help me prove my argument.
neokingendymion replied to your post: Why are people getting pissy about Mam…
I’m just laughing cause like, everyone that always classified him as a secondary character now has to bite the bullet and accept that he’s not just a throw away character.
EXACTLY. Don’t get me wrong, I love all incarnations of Mamoru, but he wasn’t exactly the star of the first anime. He was given less and less attention as the series wore on until he disappeared entirely in Stars. So I understand where people who have only really seen the 90s anime are coming from.
But they also need to accept that Mamoru is a pretty big deal in the manga, which is what Crystal is closely following. You don’t have to like him or want him to be in the spotlight, but don’t act like it’s this huge, derailing offense that he’s being given a lot of attention. That’s the way it’s always been meant to be.
