I'd like to ask you a favor, Mr. Shane.
What are the chances of, ah, promoting me to moderator of the Pokémon-related boards? :-[
Please, ask me what you wish.

Because she's a fan of Pokémon?

I remember Rebelle was the Pokémon board moderator at he first forums.

Never hurts to have two different mods for Pokémon.

Of course, Dianke, we can't just hand out moderator privileges to people who we've only met.

That's not very wise.

You need to prove to Shane that you can be trusted.

Okie dokie.

I'll do anything, ah, even change my avatar to one wearing a gas mask.
(I don't really like gas masks, but I will do it if I must. :-[)

What need I do, Mr. Shane?

Apparently, the characters in the world of Pokémon are indeed aware of the fact that the Pokémon tend to have different names in different languages (as I had my character watch TV in Pokémon X and the first show that came up was a kid's show where the host asked for the Japanese name of Eevee).

That's in Gen V too, actually.

Here it is, the list of things that are on TVs in Gens I - V.
(I see Gen VI hasn't been added yet.)

Hmm. I've never actually played a real Pokemon game due to being almost exclusively a PC gamer, but I have played a few fangames which were kinda cool, and I also played the Vietnamese Crystal ROM on an emulator once. It was beautifully engrishy :D

I kinda like JRPGs, so I probably would play more of them if they were available for any system I have.

Ah, nostalgia. It has been weeks since I last came here... and now that I'm back, I'll just poke around here.

Poke.

Hmm, it appears that Nintendo's wanting to bring over to English audience (through iTunes) all the soundtrack albums for the games (that was previously Japan-only).

Today, they've released the soundtrack to Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen in English, and they'll bring more soundtracks next year!

That makes sense, really.
Unless the moderatorship was planned on, correct?

This will make some people think that FireRed, LeafGreen, HeartGold and SoulSilver will all get remakes along with Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond and Pearl. And maybe Black, White, Black 2 and White 2.
That's my opinion.

I think it's just Gamefreak doing the fans a favor, since they've already decided to release the soundtrack to X and Y on iTunes for English audiences (which is the first time an official Pokémon soundtrack was ever released internationally).

I didn't know ".png" files could be animated. :o

I just found that out with Flare Blitz on Bulbapedia, though apparently some browsers only show the first frame of animated ".png" files.

You need a plugin in order for Chrome to be able to animate them.

Firefox can do it without one.

Quote from: Bulbapedia
Meloetta once played a song and danced so lightly, it filled people's hearts with joy. However, when sorrow darkened the world, Meloetta lost the melody. At the same time, its red shoes were lost somewhere.
Wonder if its red shoes will ever be obtainable in the future?
