@Heavyarms55 I was roaming quite a bit earlier on, so that could have been part of it. Still, I had had some luck at the park I was at before that. I finally decided to return to the downtown area, which helped lol.

Needless to say, I noticed that you were added in Pokemon Go and sent a gift your way!

If long distance trading was possible, I'd give you an extra shiny Marshtomp I have sitting around. I missed out on the Totodile C-day as well, but I caught one during a water event that ran late last year. Water Pokemon are hard to come by around here outside of the rain effect, so I was thrilled with that catch!

@Eel Nice! I've looked for a shiny Charmander on full odds, but haven't had any luck. I've had to trade for both it and Squirtle. I still need a shiny Bulbasaur and Cyndaquil. I've obtained the rest of the available shiny starters through sheer luck or their respective Community Day.

I don't believe I have you, nope. Here's my FC: 2893 5123 4771

I play most days and try to send gifts on those days, though with the Pokestop gift nerf that's going to get a little harder. I've ramped down how long I play outside of events.

Is it just me or is the Kirby fan-base, like, the chillest fan-base out of all the Nintendo games. There's no complaining about the direction of the series (Paper Mario and Pokemon), no complaining about characters (Smash Bros), just cute Kirby appreciation. The Xenoblade Chronicles and mainline Mario series communities are pretty chill too.

Favorite Games:
1. Super Mario Galaxy

Kirby exists to be largely casual, so its not surprising the fanbase isn't super intense.

I was actually really into that fandom more than a decade ago, and the only problems I had with it had nothing to do with any actual discussion on Kirby games really.

@Tyranexx That's always nice, getting a full odds shiny despite missing the events. I got my Bulbasaur that way.

Water Pokemon were very common where I lived in Japan but here in the Arizona 🏜 I almost never see them.

Annoying, same with psychic types, so I haven't been able to progress with the Victini quest.

I saw ThanosRexxx's switch logged on for the first time in about a month+. So, he's alive , hopefully doing well.

@WoomyNNYes Unless whomever killed him stole his Switch and is taking all the Pokemon from his save file.

@Lindhardt I’m not on the Kirby pulse but I thought there were some grumblings over Epic Yarn, Canvas Curse and Rainbow Curse.

@Heavyarms55 You're full of great ideas. That's why we like you, Heavy<3 haha (I know you're kidding) You can't kill ThanosREXXX, because deep down, he's inside of us all<3333 😇😇😇 And he was there all along 🤪

@Ryu_Niiyama I don't remember people complaining about those games. The only game I remember people being critical of was Star Allies.

ThanosReXXX made a Switch appearance, eh? I'll have to check my Switch's friend list next time I'm on. Poor guy has been inactive (presumably busy) for awhile.

@Heavyarms55 There are some trails near my job that I walk on sometimes; there's a bridge that spans a small river where a few water Pokemon spawn. I usually don't expect much from it but do occasionally find the rare water type there. I'd likely also have some luck at a nearby lake, but it's a little out of my way.

Psychic types are easier to an extent; said trails tend to have some Exeggcute spawns since they're mostly in a wooded area.

@Tyranexx Yeah, I never had issue with either type where I lived in Japan. Lots of rivers and water nearby and we had cloudy/rainy weather more than often enough, so I got spawns. But here in Arizona it's nothing but desert around here, and sunny/clear 98% of the time. I get a lot more fire type spawns though. At least it gives me a chance to hunt for a shiny Vulpix. Shiny Ninetails is one of the best shinys in my book.

Did you guys know it's called GameCube because it's shaped like a cube and you can play games on it??😯

This blue eye perceives all things conjoined. The past, the future, and the present. Everything flows and all is connected. This eye is not merely seen reality. It is touching the truth. Open the eye of truth... There is nothing to fear.

My hometown is also completely dry, so there’s plenty of rock Pokémon going around.

This is a peninsula though, so water Pokémon do appear.

@Eel Wow, the climate/geography dictate what kind of pokemon you're more likely to see? Wild.

It could very well be placebo, but I think it does.

Weather definitely influences encounters though.

I just learned that Mareep can learn Fire Punch in gen 2, but it cannot learn Thunder Punch.

Eel

To be fair, in generation 2 thunder punch would be just a weaker alternative to thunder(bolt).

So they probably didn't see the need. In a pragmatic kind of way.

Edit: it's way worse when you check and realize it can't learn thunderbolt either, unless you breed it with a Pikachu or a Raichu that knows that move.

Generation 2 was awkward like that. Most new Pokemon have terrible move sets. Just look at jumpluff and xatu.

@Eel No, the weird thing is that Flaaffy and Ampharos CAN learn Thunder Punch; Flaaffy by TM, and Ampharos learns it at level 30 when it evolves from Flaaffy. I guess the logic was that Mareep is not bipedal and can't punch, but it can learn Fire Punch lol.
