Cat ears, right? I'd have to say some of the headsets with those do look really good, though! Not going to bother buying any myself

Ah cool, I finally received my code for Colors! Live on the switch.

Got started with the "quest" game mode. Since that seems like a nice way to get started. Though it's limited to one thing a day.

The first prompt for the quest is drawing the mcguffin the quest is for.

This is the part where I remember I can't actually draw.

@Blooper987 Oh that's awesome - like around last year or so I found the Super Game Boy player's guide at my retro game store. I remember reading it as a kid - believe it or not, that's when I first heard about Game Boy games. lol

I forgot there was a Colors! game on the Switch TBH. I've never played the series, but I've heard it's decent overall.

@MarioLover92 I also like anime, though I haven't watched much of it recently. I need to watch the MHA anime fully; I've only seen a few clips online. I am gradually working my way through the manga series. I'm on volume 9 (guessing this is in an earlier season) and have just gotten to the League of Villains Vanguard Action Squad's attack on the training camp. I also picked up a collection of the first three volumes of Fullmetal Alchemist.

As for Black Clover, I've heard of it but admittedly don't know much about it.

Well it was just a DLC weekend for me. The Pokemon DLC was a lot of fun. I really like the new dungeon shiny hunting mechanism. The new legendary mons are quite cool too. I've already built a new team for VGC's new format on November 1st.

Also, I've been replying Xenoblade Chronicles 2. When I first played it, most of the DLC wasn't out yet so it's like a mix of new and revisited content for me. I just did the Poppibuster quest, which was freaking cool. Poppibuster has got to be a Hulkbuster reference. And if it's not, that's my headcanon. The English voice even sounds like Jarvis!

@Tyranexx I don't know how I missed your reply, sorry about that. Masuda method is the most straightforward method to hunt shinys and the one constant method that has remained in the series since its introduction in gen 3.

But the DLC that just dropped gave us a new method that's really cool. People have been having a lot of success with it. You get really good 1 in 25 odds, but you can't hunt a specific mon aside from the legendary at the end.

Ugh. Between the weather and work, today was one of the Mondayist Mondays that ever Monday'd. Busy, wet, and dreary. I'm mentally shot. The only plus side is that this year's A Spooky Message research in PoGo decided to toss me a shiny Spiritomb.

@Heavyarms55 No prob, figured you were busy with RL. Heaven forbid that we have lives off the internet.

Looks like you've been having a lot of fun with the Crown Tundra DLC! I noticed you've been putting some hours into Shield (and XC2). I still don't have a copy of Sw/Sh, but I do plan to get the DLC. I may be in the minority, but I'm glad those Sw/Sh base game + DLC packs are coming out; I like having everything in one place if possible.

1/25 Shiny odds on the legendary at the end, huh? Have you had any luck?

@Tyranexx each individual Pokemon has a one in 100 chance of being shiny, given how you can catch four Pokemon in each adventure, in the end there's a one in 25 chance that one of them will be shiny.

Of course that's with the shiny charm. Without it, it's one in 300 per mon.

@Tyranexx Yes! Actually just went hunting with my friend and he got a shiny xerneas and I got Necrozma! And we confirmed shinys are rolled separately, so even though the while group gets access to the same mons, the shiny odds are rolled for each of us individually.

The way it works is 1 in 100 (with the shiny charm) overall, catch 4 mons each time (in a successful run, and it is modestly hard, some legendary mons have super powerful AOE moves, or you just end up with a team that matches up poorly) so 1 in 100 each mon.

It makes it hard to hunt specific non legendary mons, but we can save the "location" of a legendary we have already encountered to try again. You can only catch each legendary once, so don't take them if you want to hunt them.

Since I have all the old mons in Home, I am not taking any non shinys. Lol.

And yes, been playing through XC2 a good bit. It's been a couple years since my first run and now I have the DLC, most of which wasn't out before.

These dynamax adventures with rental Pokemon are honestly such a good use of the raid mechanic, they're actually fun to play, with a little bit of strategy and a healthy amount of luck.

And best of all: no shields to pad the battles.

@Tyranexx Yeah same here - been busy with real life...oh and AC:NH. I never read the MHA manga, only saw the anime. Might get to that at some point - I didn't read too much manga myself. And that's cool, I really need to get back to Fullmetal Alchemist, lol

Black Clover is pretty good, it's somewhat similar to MHA but with wizards, sorcery, and all that fun stuff. I don't want to go too plot heavy, of course. If you enjoyed from what you've seen from MHA, you'll probably like BC too.

[Insert generic "My week is busy with work + random stuff since I have a full weekend coming up, so less internet" excuse here]

@Eel Those still aren't bad odds, all things considered. Compared to how rare shinies usually are anyway. XD

@Heavyarms55 Awesome! Congrats! Both Xerneas and Necrozma are pretty cool Pokemon, but shiny Necrozma would be my pick of the two. I love what they did with Necrozma in Ultra Sun/Moon; that fight with Ultra Necrozma is genuinely difficult if one isn't prepared. Happy hunting on the rest of those 'Mon! It sounds fun and way less time-consuming compared to other methods...for legendaries anyway.

I have XC2 backlogged, but I have no clue when I'll get to it yet. I'm sure I'll love it since I also enjoyed both Xenoblade Chronicles: DE and Xenoblade Chronicles X.

@MarioLover92 From what I've heard, the MHA manga and the anime follow each other pretty closely, and the English dub is apparently decent as far as localization goes. Totally up to you if you want to read the manga and play spot the difference! I typically read through something (Well, within reason) before watching its counterpart if one exists. I did things backwards with Lord of the Rings, admittedly, but the movies are actually somewhat close to the books with a few changes.

I've skimmed a little of Fullmetal Alchemist, but I haven't read it in detail yet. What I did find looked pretty good!

Black Clover also sounds good, I'll have to give that a look as well. Thanks for the suggestion!

@Tyranexx I actually got good pulls today too! Sudowoodo and Morpeko! And my friend got Celesteela, that flying/steel ultra beast!

And did you get a shiny Spiritomb in Go? I thought that was you on my list.

One of the best parts of this mode over breeding is that it's actually fun to do itself. You have to work together. It can be done solo with AI teammates but Pokemon dumb as rocks allied AI often shows.

If you liked XC1 and Xeno X then I am sure you'll enjoy XC2 when you get there. And there's some ultra deep world building at the end of XC2 that ties 1 and 2 together. If you like that kind of thing, it's there. Also the DLC is very worth it, just FYI. It's effectively an entire self contain prequel, on top of all the additional content it adds to the main game.

@Heavyarms55 Haha, more good luck! And Sudowoodo is one of the more striking shinies IMO. Maybe I'll do some casual shiny hunting of my own in Se/Sh when I finally pick up a copy of the game.

"Dumb as rock Ally AI" in Pokemon is 200% on target. Those times you're stuck battling with a "friend"....

Yep, I netted a shiny Spiritomb! It was pure dumb luck; one of the rewards for the A Spooky Message research running right now decided to throw me a bone with the Spiritomb reward. Definitely wasn't expecting it!

I like world-building, though I'm mildly surprised to learn there's a canonical link between XC1 and XC2; if I recall, the two were said to be completely separate experiences outside of some minor shared elements. A red herring, huh? And by DLC, are you referring to Torna? I want to pick that up too, though I've been told it's best to play through the base game first.

@Tyranexx Dude this new dungeon hunting method is legit. I grabbed Flareon and Pangoro today! Although my friends didn't get any. If/when you play it, hit me up!

Congrats on the Tomb, it's a good one and real rare in PoGo!

So the canonical link is in the broadest sense. To say anything else about it to explain however would be monstrous spoilers. Storywise they are essentially stand alone experiences that can be played in any order, but if you play both you get more from each.

And by DLC I mean both Torna and the in game content. Torna is essentially a great JRPG in its own right. I wouldn't say you have to play the base game first, but playing Torna first will very much change how your first impressions of the base game would be.

But the base game DLC adds more Blades, quests, some optional story elements and a challenge mode with lots of cosmetic unlockables. Most notable being alternate outfits for the main cast. Oh, and a grab bag of goodies and money that give you a nice early game bump without breaking anything.

It came with official Para Para controller for PS2 with USB output and the game inside.
Finally, i can play Para Para again at home after the Arcade machines have been removed from all game arcade on my hometown since June 2018. (So sad, Para Para Paradise was very popular back on year 2003 until 2010) ๐Ÿ˜”

Ever wonder how to play Para Para Paradise PS2 with that pink controller ?
Check these out.

@Heavyarms55
Yo, have you ever seen this PS2 game back on Japan ?
Para Para Paradise was one of my Best Konami game on PS2 along with DDR, Drummania, Beatmania IIDX & Pop'n Music.

How rare is a white fat model PS2? I've seen the white slim one on the local retrogaming store some years ago and it was more expensive than a regular one.

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.

Oh, my PS2 Fat USA was a Black color by default before i asked the game shop repairman to swap the body shell with White color from PS2 Fat Japan machine since i don't like Black color for video game machines.
