As for things I did not know, I recently found out that gust was originally a normal type move. Also, in R/B/Y, Psychic types had virtually no weaknesses (Dark was not invented at the time and the elements were not as criss-crossed)

That's exactly why they created the Dark type and adjusted the Ghost type (which was not super effective against Psychic back then), as well as creating the Shadow Ball and Megahorn attacks. Back in R/B/Y, the Psychic type was extremely broken, as the only super effective attacks against it were Leech Life (which sucks), Twineedle (only learned by sucky Beedrill), and Pin Missile (only learned by Beedrill and Jolteon with its sucky physical attack power). Also, only other Psychic types resisted Psychic type attacks back then. Finally, if the Psychic type could learn Amnesia (which raised both Special Attack and Special Defense by 2 stages back then), you were doubly screwed.

By the way, Sand Attack, Karate Chop, and Bite were also Normal type attacks in R/B/Y. Here's the full list of how the Pokémon games were different in R/B/Y.

If Mewtwo is strong now, imagine how he was back then?

I'll admit, i dug the 80's My Little Pony because it also had that classic wonderful look, and animation to it, it was filled with magic(Check out the intro, it's pretty awesome)it's organic animation unlike the New My Little Pony's 'flash animation' which is very simple, computerized and minimal in comparison.. I'm not knocking it because it's "OMGZZZ they're Ponies" I'm all for that(Ponies are awesome, and so are unicorns! ), it's just the look of the show doesn't exactly grab me, decent material aside. That said, it's still probably one of the best Modern cartoons out there and if I were strapped down to a chair and i had to choose a modern cartoon in this day and age, it would be that, SpongeBob(Season 1- 3 preferably) or the new ThunderCats(haven't actually seen it)

But in comparison to something like Captain? C'monnnnn. Different strokes i guess!

I agree that the 90s were an animated reneissance (sp?), but there's still some good stuff on today. My favorite current cartoons are Pokémon (15th season and still going strong), Young Justice, the new Thundercats, Phineas and Ferb, and Naruto Shippuden (although I've actually skipped ahead to all the subbed episodes). It's only had 3 episodes so far, but the new Green Lantern animated series looks promising, and I'm very excited about the new Avatar series (The Legend of Korra) that starts next month.

The Pokemon show is really good still even in its 15th season, I'm impressed. I'm also very intrigued by the Legend of Korra series from Avatar, I loved the original run. Anyways, how did this thread get into TV shows?

You say you're not fooled by nostalgia, but you like old MLP because of the "classic" look?
Name a few cartoons from the 80's you dont like, @waveboy, lol.
Oh and when there's scene missing a background a few times, you know a cartoon's rushed.
But heh, if you let me watch a show with sunglass-wearing winged rainbow horse, ill let you watch the Power Glove oracle show.
Well, this went nicely off-topic.

The eggplant wizard was the best rendition from Captain N, Pit wasn't too bad and Link and Zelda were okay but the rest were terrible, especially Simon Belmont. The Captain N version of him doesn't even have 1% of the Simon Belmont from the games in him.

@Tasuki, there's nothing wrong with a little retro recollection.

So everyone ready to have their mind blown?

The tune that plays in Super Mario Bros. 3 when you use the warp flute is the same tune that's in the opening title screen of the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time!

It's also the same theme for the first LOZ's whistle

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

I didn't know literally anything about The Legend of Zelda until maybe 2-3 years ago. And I was really bad at video games. And I thought Xbox was made by Nintendo. And I thought Nintendo was owned by Microsoft. I had some crazy idea back then, I have no idea how I thought them up.
Also I didn't know how to sync WiiMotes.

I found out that (well its been a year anyway) if you use your 3ds camera and set the view to the left (middle option in the middle row when taking a pic; slide the slider all the way left) and take a pic of a magic eye pictuure. You can see the magic eye picture when viewing the image in 3d! This sort of fits with the theme (it doesn't fit anywhere else anyway)

"Luigi's Mansion has cheese in it?" That was my reaction when I was on the Super Mario Wiki. I first played the game around Christmas 2003. I didn't know about the cheese until about 2009.
