@Qwikman: i don't really think Formless is considered a 'boss', but it is an enemy you wouldn't normally come up against during play. Most of the enemies go out of their way to attack you, but the little Formless clouds you have to hunt down and almost force to fight you.

come to think of it, another enemy you kinda hafta hunt down and force to fight you are the Lakitus... there's the one just before you reach the Mushroom Kingdom for the first time, and then there's one in Booster Pass iirc. It's possible to get into a fight with the both of them, though it's hard as hell, and i've only done it once with the one just outside the Mushroom Kingdom.

@MM: thing with that move, though, is that it's easily blockable. just have the Princess in your party, and you're all set with her Group Hug (and Come Back if you're maybe not so good at Timed Blocks, lol).

I've noticed that about mine too. then again, i haven't played any older games recently, just new ones i've bought. i don't know if it's just the latter System Menu updates that are slowing things down somehow, the games themselves just loading slowly because they're new, or what, but you're not alone, dude.

by 'influential', shouldn't that mean these games have had influence on future generations of gaming? if so, we're not really at the point yet to judge which DS games have been 'the most influential of all time', i don't think.

it's a rare version of the download animation, Shadow_Chad, but it is known to happen from time to time. Count yourself lucky that you've had the chance to experience it, lol. There are also times where you'll have Fire Mario running across the screen (that one's happened to me a few times, so it's not quite as rare as the swimming version).

There's Formless hanging out in the area with the sand pits as well... one of the screens has a cloud floating around that you can just barely get to. J.K. mentioned Culex, he hangs out in Monstro Town (you'll need to have a Shiny Stone to unlock the door; to get the Stone you'll need to purchase a Fireworks for 500 coins in Moleville and trade it to the little girl mole there). There's Jinx in Monstro Town as well, though he's not really a secret so much as he is optional.

Are there specific enemies you're trying to find or something, Wooperman1? I don't entirely understand what it is you're looking for just from the OP, lol.

i wouldn't really recommend a skin for protection, unless you plan on keeping your DS in a purse or bag or someplace where the outer shell might get scratched to all hell -- that way, the skin takes the beating, and not your DS. a skin alone won't protect it from being dropped or anything. for style, though, skins or decorated cases are the way to go :3

We've never had any evidence of virus' or things that could harm you computer that come from this site. However, due to the nature of the internet and the fact we're loading components/adverts/images from 3rd party websites there could be instances where they are the source.

Like James said, if you ever see something take a screenshot. The one above is interesting and hopefully isolated, it only says someone has "reported" it, doesn't mean its been found to have an actual problem.

If you'd like to continue discussing this issue, please do so in the aforementioned thread. Thank you :3

echoing what CB said -- Ant said a long time ago that there was no way to merge threads (well, he could probably do it, but not us with the tools we have available to us right now). if there was a way to merge threads instead of locking them, i'd be doing that instead.

either way, we're damned if we do lock similar threads, and damned if we don't -- people will complain either way, so i'm going to keep doing what i'm doing until there's an alternative available. :3
