It was only moments after Safety the shiny Patrat evolved. I was training her with rustling grass Audinos before battling Roxie and this beauty showed up. Her colour scheme reminds me of the Anastasia doll that comes in a royal purple box, hence the name. This playthrough is unintentionally turning into a shiny badge quest, haha.

I've been grinding for a while and finally found a special team member. So glad I had a premier ball :'D

Next up on the list is a bit of a fan favorite, Evan Patrick Stewart

Evan Patrick Stewart is a dumbf*ck/retard type, a mixture that synergizes really well and is almost the exactly the sole reason why he's always popping up in top ten champion lists. His general moveset is usually pretty average and his signature move of demanding that you laugh immediately after telling a joke has a middling success rate, but he's a hard-counter to the billy meta and that will always be something to value.

Evan has a 4X weakness to nuts and will probably get addicted to heroin just like his heroes, but if you put in the work and manage to master this champion, he'll help you escape bronze easy peasy lemon squeezy.

My final rating will be a solid 7/10.
dirkj825 blogged

First up on the list, we have

Kaal is a fire/ground type with a 4X weakness to water. He's really good against stupid f*cking inanimate plants but has actually already died as of me writing this review because it rained.

Overall, Kaal used to be really strong in the meta but with the recent rise of kryptonite and the increasingly prevalence of water, the world's most common and accessible substance, there's simply no way to use this character without feeding in the arena of valor.

Simply put, if you take this man out in a ranked game, you're putting not only yourself at a disadvantage but your entire team.

I give Kaal a 4/10 stupid f*cking rock man

Skins from CS:GO - various coloring for weapons. They were added to the game in 2013, and players immediately liked the idea of running with beautiful pictures on the guns. Any user can open a case in the game for a certain amount (about $ 3), after which he will get one of these guns, with which he can run in the game. Each weapon has its own value, which depends entirely on the demand for it from the community, so that any skin can be bought from the hands of other players.

For example, this is what AWP Asiimov looks like, which can be bought for about $56 at the game's marketplace.


So - AK-47 Redline, which in its best condition costs 55 dollars.


And so - M4A4 Howl, which you won't find at all cheaper than 1400 dollars.


Once the user receives a gun in the game, he can do with it anything: play, leave in inventory or use it as money on various sites.

Naturally, immediately after the appearance of skins in CS:GO enthusiasts have created hundreds of services that use coloring weapons in the game. They can be divided into two categories: sites for selling / buying / exchanging skins and various casinos / sites for betting.

The first type of services is extremely simple: here you can sell skins and take money to your card, buy guns for real money or exchange them with other players or the site itself.


Also still popular resources on which you can play a variety of gambling (roulette, dice, more or less, and so on) to increase inventory and win more expensive skins. You can choose this site at csgogator.com.


Valve is at war with such sites, although many of them still work. But sites for transferring skins are still alive and bring a lot of money to the owners.

We requested a comment from a skin trading expert named Antey, who works on one of the major trading platforms.

"[Profit in business] depends on revolutions and approaches. Now it is ten times harder to get up from scratch than a couple of years ago. An illustrative example: many blogger traders used to make a video "from key to knife in 5 hours" - investing only $2.5, making $50 a day, and then making $500 in a few hours and so on.

Now it's just impossible to make such a profit. Especially in such terms. An ordinary trader (a player who makes money on exchanging skins from CS:GO) cannot take a skin and sell it more profitable, because there is a 7-day ban".


Since the developers of CS:GO have an internal shop for buying/selling skins, they interfere with third-party sites in every way. In 2018, Valve introduced a 7-day ban for skins: after the transfer of a gun from one account to another, it was blocked for a week. The innovation hit hard on all sites working with skins, many of which were immediately closed.

"It can be said that [after the introduction of the 7-day ban] trading in CS was in a state of clinical death for several months. Now he's like an invalid who recovered from the war, but many functions are lost forever. If it weren't for the sites to exchange skins, the trader would have died a long time ago," Antey believes. - However, ordinary players' interest in [the skins] has never dropped much. It only grew when CS entered the Chinese market very actively. Chinese collectors started to play CS on a massive scale and collect expensive private collections with rare skins.

The total turnover of sites for exchanging skins reaches hundreds of millions of dollars. For many players in CS:GO trading is much more interesting than matches. Skins in CS - a kind of game in which the user can earn a lot of money if it is just a competent exchange guns with other players. Trading sites are only happy to help in this - with them, players can give a skin and get another in just a few clicks.

"Trading sites have everything working on commission. They have a part of the profit from the sale of skins, but as far as I know, it's not that important. Sites provide services and charge a small commission, and people can earn by using services: look for skins at auction that will bring profit, exchange or buy and sell to other users skins with a surcharge for stickers, float, pattern (some skins are more expensive because of the stickers that other users put on them, a little wear and a special pattern - a pattern that some guns are especially rare) and other details. In short: sites-services are always good as long as there is interest in the skins and demand.


It's a lot harder for traders. All their changes hit them right in the face, not indirectly, like websites. The trader-bank makes a delay between buying and selling 7 days instead of 10 minutes. Everything can happen in 7 days, including falling prices for your assets, purchased skins. You can now trade and you can safely make money on it, but it has become much harder. To raise money, you need to spin like that, invent more sophisticated schemes, look for every loophole on the sites and the best way, while looking at the market in style and on the trade-readdit idiots who are ready to sell you a treasure at the price of garbage.

Have played through every region except Kalos (will play that next; currently Midway through Hoenn). Here are my thoughts in decreasing order of quality (though note: every region is very close to the ones it has been grouped up with):

GOOD regions (replayable and HAVE replayed them):

Alola:
- Arguably the best and most developed story (I'm a huge Unova fan but speaking without Nostalgia, Alola may take the cake.)
- Unique Island style
- Trials
- Very nature oriented
- Love team skull
- Good Music
- Major QoL improvements (**REMOVED HMS**, added bottle caps, etc.)
- Things such as RR in USUM were also fun
- USUM is close to HGSS and B2W2 in terms of content but not there yet. It's like a 3D but less inferior version.
- Finally a bird-like starter :D (Decidueye)

Unova:
- Great story as well (There's no arguing either Unova or Alola has the best story of all time)
- BW plus B2W2 are just so amazing, never had Pokemon done a sequel before nor have they done one after (excluding Johto, but that's a completely different region from Kanto)
- B2W2 in of itself has so much content
- Actual differences between B2 & W2 (different locations)
- PWT
- Even better music than Alola
- Makes me curious of the Original Dragon (remakes plz)
- Made TMs become infinite
- One criticism I have is on the elegance of the map, which is...kind of a circle. Gameplay wise it's not the worst thing in the world though, it's actually kinda helpful. And tbf B2W2 did fix that up a bit.

Johto:
- HGSS, like B2W2, are one of the best Pokemon (main series) games of all time
- A whole region as postgame
- Pokemon following you (HGSS)
- Amazing music as well (Rival?)
- Just overall a pleasant adventure

_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

MEH regions (Wouldn't be against replaying it but would never go out of my way to do it):

Hoenn (to be fair only half way in):
- Honestly I expected much more from this region
- Greenery is nice (but Alola does do it better)
- Routes are VERY short
- Illusion of choice in terms of route paths (often one is blocked off in some manner)
- Get fly very late for how complex the journey pathway is, can be frustrating at times
- Added to the above, there are some one-way routes that are pretty sad to explore as a completionest without fly
- Often times you get the HM/"Solution" to a route right AFTER going through it, constantly going back can be frustrating
- Very restrictive exploration, a bit too restrictive; but simplicity is nice in it's own way.
- Towns feel like either way too small or way too big; no in between
- Shout out to ORAS Kyogre/Groudon theme

Kanto:
- Was the first generation, what else can I say? Not really much else other than that.
- The OG starters are nice I guess.

_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Not Good (Would be against replaying):

Sinnoh:
- Combine a large region with terrible story and you get this slugfest
- Honestly don't even remember much due to how uneventful and grueling this region was
- Great starter designs and pokemon in general though. (Infernape, Empoleon, Luxray)
- Also the region/generation that modernized Pokemon battles. (Large things such special/physical split and such)

Galar:
- While Sinnoh had a bad story at least it had one, this region has NO STORY. Or at least no significant story.
- A terrible mess of writing is slumped up in the end
- Going from nice mega evolution designs to pokemon just growing bigger and gaining some HP was bit of a let down.
- Did not like the music style
- Honestly just did not like the region as a whole, not really big on industrial themes. Greenery is more up my alley.
- Team yell was the definition of boredom and irrelevance if I've seen one
- Maybe the DLC will give it some redemption? Who knows? I hope so. Isle of Armor was better than main game and Crown Tundra remains to be seen.

_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Unplayed (???)

Kalos:
- Idk how this is going to be, but I'm assuming it's going to go under not good just a bit over Galar. There's a reason I've left this for last.
- Greninja, Yveltal, and Noivern designs are really nice though, plus the region that introduced megas.

End note: Ik I have mashed the regions themselves, the games, and the generations all in one without even distinguishing remakes/originals, but that's just how it is x) These are just some general personal thoughts, not meant to be an in-depth analysis.

it’s 2am of a saturday, bout to sleep, reminiscing nostalgic memories and i came to remember my time on here. how can i not forget this username that i eventually found cringe over the years? even more so the people i talked to on here; from short, one time conversations regarding trades and breeding pokemon, to those who were regulars in my PMs (and kick, was it?) jus tryna catch up everyday. was pretty obsessed with pokemon back then, i miss that now. it’s crazy to know i was first on neoseeker when i was only 11, but from now in a month i’ll be turning 18. so much has happened between then and now, but what’s there to be surprised in? adolescent years are wild after all. while i dont talk to anyone from here anymore, nor am i active, i still remember the friendships and quick encounters i made on here. i’ve jumped here and there on different forums and such, however now i’ve pretty much rested on discord, idly so. neoseeker was defo one of my first places to have been on, so it’s quite memorable to me now. my discord’s lorraine#1146 if anyone on my friend’s list sees this. :) i hope you are all are leading a happy life.

Finished both Trials of Mana and Helltaker's guides in the past week. Loved how those two guides came out. Helltaker was an incredibly short game with probably, if you know your way around it, 30 minutes of gameplay, maybe less. Even so, the guide looks quite charming for such little content the game had.

Trials of Mana, on the other hand, took us basically a week and a couple of days to finish off the main guide, and the rest of the paths / other sections took us a week or so to be completed. The guide is one of my favorite ones thus far :).

It appeared the large boss was at his wit's end. The group of fighters cornered him. He looked into the crowd to see they had, indeed, turned on him. His eyes darted to the entrance. His once loyal bodyguard was already defeated...

Chimaira has been pinned! He was Deebo - D-Mob aligned bodyguard who will break ya neck


Surely his last henchmen did some damage... It appeared to be true, but he seemed to vanish without a trace...

Kid Clutch has been pinned! He was Proof - Vendetta aligned former superbike racer

Gotenks has vanished! He was Pockets - D-Mob aligned quick henchman


So...this was the end for him. Well, at least that Manny never got to live to see the end. There was some joy to be had in that. The two hulking fighters approached the man and he felt the weight of a steel chair knock him to the ground.

sword_of_omens has been pinned! He was D-Mob - D-Mob aligned king of the ring!

There, the two fighters stood victorious. While they didn't feel any friendship towards each other, they could help but to respect their strength.


Gonzales has won! He was Briggs - Vendetta aligned discharged soldier

Olivier le Fou has won! He was Spider - Vendetta aligned high school basketball superstar
