[FIRST THINGS FIRST, RIGHT?]
Yep. I think it's definitely safe to say that, as adorable as it was, my playthrough of Let's Go Eevee has gone dead. I owe this primarily to the controller style making playing it too annoying. I understand the virtues of holding the controller vertically in an encounter to try and catch things, but forcing that same hold while on the world map was too much.
Sorry about that.
Anyway, moving on to the upcoming Gen VIII release:
[ANY THOUGHTS ON WHICH ONE YOU'LL GET?]
I'm thinking Sword at the moment. It just appeals to me. The starter, at least, isn't a tough choice.
[YOU WERE SOLD ON SCORBUNNY FROM DAY ONE]
Duh. :p Still, it's interesting to see my long-standing tradition of defaulting to the Grass starter continuing to be thwarted. X/Y made me adore my Fennekin, Firestarter, and while Ivanhoot was my choice for Moon, I consider my Ultra Sun run the true Gen VII experience, and so consider my Popplio, Serenity, to be my starter for that gen.
So basically the "all Grass starters" thing is pre-BW, while post-BW it's varied nicely. Fire, Water, and now Fire again.
I just hope Scorbunny's final form isn't Fire/Fighting. Been too many of those. XP
[YOU'RE MORE HOPING TO GET A FEMALE ONE ANYWAY, YA PERV]
Yes, but not for those kinds of reasons.
I'm badly ahead of myself here, but I've gone so far as to even pick my starter's name: once I make my 20-30 restarts to get a female Scorbunny, I plan to name her Cammie
Anyway, see you again when Sword/Shield comes out?
[HANG ON, WHAT ABOUT THAT THEORY YOU HAD?]
OH, right...regarding the name of the region.
Yeah. Irish for "Disease." A lot of people seem to think there's going to be a reference to the Black Plague here...the fact that it's the Irish
word, however, has me looking more at the infamous potato famine.
[POKEBERRY BLIGHTS TO WIPE OUT POKEMON'S FOOD SUPPLIES, ANYONE?]
Who knows? Guess we'll find out in a few months.
[SEE YOU ALL THEN]
