Reading TVTropes on A Wrinkle in Time and now I'm getting L'Englesian vibes from SMT.
Oh man I remember reading A Wrinkle in Time when I was a kid. I don't actually remember too much about the book itself, but I do remember it was the first time I was exposed to the bending space explanation of FTL travel.

Just finished up wrapping up most of the remaining trophies in Exist Archive. All that are left are some skill related trophies and trophies related to the third ending. Going to platinum this thing this weekend. I suppose I probably should move on to FFXV after that? Eh, can't say I am in a particular rush to play it. I guess my other choice would be Dragonball Xenoverse 2.

Lord of the Rings talk: I read the books and while I didn't have much trouble telling the characters apart, Tolkiens writing style is a total snoozefest. The only thing I really remember liking were the Ents.
It isn't his writing style per say, as the Hobbit is completely readable. It is just his writing style for LotR where he doesn't know when to stop.

No no no, as per the game Mimikyu is  a stalker with a hidden room dedicated to its stalking target. That and an eldritch abomination that just wishes to learn about this emotion we call love. *hugs Mimikyu* It is just so adorable.

*googles Mimikyu*   AAAGH!!  O____O
.........still not as scary as Gardevoir at least.
:( Why are you scared of Mimikyu? It is the most adorable little thing ever that just wants love!

I think the cutest pokemon is eevee.  Chikorita is a bundle of adorableness too.
The cutest Pokémon is clearly Mimikyu. No other answer is acceptable. It just wants to be loved! :p

So how far along is everyone else at this point? There is some interesting stuff in post-game, but I don't want to bring it up if everyone else is still early game.

And along with Gardevoir, there are all those other unfortunate waifu pokemon like Lopunny, Meloetta, Delphox, Gothitelle, Florges, Leavanny, Salazzle, etc.  Most unfortunate is probably the male version of Lopunny.  "I'm a man, man!"
I feel like male Mega-Gardevoir probably has it the worst although male Mega-Lopunny is up there. Also my understanding is that Braxien is considered more of a waifu-mon than Delphox...and I feel dirty for the fact that I know that. >.> Although I must say this is the first time I have heard that Florges and Leavanny are waifu-mon.

Watching my aunt and her friends try to read Game of Thrones on Facebook is equal parts frustrating and entertaining.

One of them said she couldn't keep track of all the characters in the tv show so wanted to try to books to see if that made it easier. I think she's in for a rude awakening.
...I don't read or watch Game of Thrones, but that feels to me like the equivalent of saying "I can't keep track of all the lore in the Lord of the Rings movies, so I am going to read the books instead. Surely there is less there!"

Side note, I have never actually gotten through Lord of the Rings. Read The Hobbit, started Fellowship...and I think I got about halfway before I started zoning out while reading it? Have not made a second attempt and that first attempt was a decade or so ago.

People have all sorts of requirements for their main pokemon team. Mine's simply that they must be 'cute'.
It's funny though because I find that a lot of the OP pokemons are the ugly ones.
I don't know if I have any real requirements for my team other than me liking them. Even that rule is flecible since I plan to have Incineroar on my Moon team for type coverage despite me hating it.

...and poor Gardevoir.  Yes sweetie, along with furries there exist leafies/floweries/petal pushers/whatever slang is used for anthropomorphic plant fetishes on the Internet.
I think it is still considered to be furry since Gardevoir is a Pokémon and Pokémon are animals (even if some are based on plants). And yes poor Gardevoir, forsaken even by its creator who gave it a freaking wedding dress mega because...it wasn't fetishized enough? *shrug*

I'll just link to this Reddit post to go over the usefulness of Golidopods ability.

Okay fair enough that it can be useful in competitive...however that thread does not address one problem with it. My understanding is that if the ability triggers while fighting wild Pokémon that you retreat from battle rather than switch. So that is an annoyance for single player portion of the game if you use it.

Cool to hear bug types are starting to get their due, given what you said about Cutiefly.  And I'll bet Wimpod's (bug/water) evolution will be badass, like Magikarp to Gyarados or Feebas to Milotic.  When I played Crystal, my MVP was Spinarak/Ariados.
Wimpod's evolution looks neat, but I don't think it is particularly useful due to its ability. There might be some way to make it useful, but I don't know what it would be.

Well I have basically beaten the game now. Main story is beaten, post-game mini arc is complete, and all legendaries have been captured (and in freaking premier balls because I hate myself). All I need to do now is evolve some Pokémon that will be added to my Living Dex once January rolls around. Well that and my Moon playthrough for a few legendaries.

Game was great, looking forward to seeing what they have planned for the region (as there are more than a few clues that they are not done in Alola yet).

I wonder if there's an Alolan Flabebe line, what with Hawaii having cool tropical flowers. 

Man, when I played Y, Flabebe, Floette, and Florges broke the game for me.  It was a pure fairy type, but it learned a bunch of powerful grass moves, so having a pokemon with a good grass movepool with none of the grass type weaknesses meant that I actually shelved my Bulbasaur, who was going to be a cornerstone of my Torchic, Froakie, Bulbasaur A-team.  Oh, and I pretty much took out Y's Elite 4 with Florges alone.   
Nope. Only Pokémon that got new forms in this game are the ones with Alolan forms (which are all Gen 1), ones with anime tie ins (Greninja and Zyg...w/e), and Pikachu (but those aren't released yet and I'm stretching by calling it a new form).

I've heard that Cutiefly and its evolution are beasts this game though and they are Fairy/Insect. I plan on including it on my team for my Moon playthrough.

Now I feel like a weirdo D:
Don't worry, you are OUR weirdo...just don't ever expect me to invite you over. :p

a bathroom I NEVER have to share with anyone else

...I have three bathrooms I never have to share with anyone. Envy me! :p

Well I just got to the fourth island. And the plot between the third and fourth islands was a treat. I think it is certainly going to be up there in terms of story (among Pokémon games). Easily has the best main villain at bare minimum. Might actually have the best group of friends/rivals also.
