2020.08.22 17:07 hakuraimaru Time-Centric Pokémon DP Remakes?

Hey folks! I've been sitting on this game concept for a while, and figured I'd put it out there in case anyone finds it interesting! Whenever I think about how to spice up the Pokémon formula, two things come to mind. The first is the self-sufficiency and survivalism of "Breath of the Wild," as plenty of other fans have noted they find appealing. The second is the Oak plotline from the fourth Pokémon movie, where the main crew meets the professor as a child and get a taste of the old technology that the Pokémon world originally ran on.
Celebi, of course, is responsible for the time travel in the movie. But there's one other major player as far as time travel is concerned: Dialga. We already have some really fantastic plotlines in PMD2 that involve sending players back in time by way of Dialga. There, the player character isn't allowed to move through time of their own free volition. But in the remake of a game where catching the time god is a main objective...you see where I'm going with this?
Here's my premise: the game starts out with the player character as a small child. The player gets accidentally sent back in time to a point where there are very few people in Sinnoh at all. Their first task is to get to the Spear Pillar to ask Dialga to send them back home. During this journey, they meet Pokémon, and because the player is so young here, they're able to learn to partially communicate and make unusually strong bonds. Which brings us to the game's second wind: after returning to their own time, the player keeps alive a dream of seeing their old friends again. In modern Sinnoh, this entails completing the gym/league challenge to get strong enough to catch Dialga.
Ancient Sinnoh is, of course, where the real interest of the game lies. Here's a list of features:
Well, that just about sums it up. I'd definitely be curious to hear any other ideas that riff on this, thoughts on improving it, etc.! Thanks for reading B)

2020.07.03 20:12 DumbledoreDick Where did professor oak obtain Ash’s Pikachu? And how did he know it was the same Pikachu from the timeline of Pokemon 4Ever?

Pokemon 4Ever is one of my favorite Pokémon movies of all time. The plot has professor oak in it, when he was young. He interacts with ash & Pikachu (from the future) throughout the film, and at the end of the film, he tells ash that they will be friends in the future. (Ash doesn’t know that Sammy is young professor oak)
Fast forward to when Ash gets his Pikachu. This is the same Pikachu from the future, when ash and Pikachu go back in time. How did professor oak find and know that this was the exact Pikachu that was on an adventure with ash in the future.
I know Pikachu’s individual backstory, up to this point, he was a pichu who was abondoned. A khangaskhan adopted him, he ran away and evolved into Pikachu. Then the show picks up with professor oak owning Pikachu. It never shows where or how he caught it. (I don’t believe, anyway)
Link to the Pokémon 4Ever plot -

Link to Pikachu backstory -

Given the knowledge of both of these links, I was wondering If anybody could fill in the blanks for me ? It would be greatly appreciated! Thank you and have a good day!

2020.06.11 00:47 TechnoKitsune My mental wellbeing and recent inability to enjoy the franchise- and I'm sorry

This will be long. Personal at some parts, too. I will also be writing this on mobile, so my grammar won't be the strongest suit here. However, it appears that this is the place where I feel most comfortable talking about my emotions and intrusive thoughts regarding this topic, with people who understand this discourse moreso than anyone around me.
I will delete this asap. Maybe tomorrow morning, maybe next week. I am not asking for anyone's sympathy, nor am I wishing for clout. I wanted to find someplace where I can talk about this without feeling judged for something so stupid. Not even my own parent didn't even bother asking what's wrong; instead, ranting on how everyone is having it worse than I was without wanting to listen to how I was feeling (thanks for the extra guilt, I guess).
So. Where do I begin? Well, I think the closest thing to the beginning will do, I suppose, as some foundation to why am I feeling like this. I will try and make sure not to make it too personal, so I'll water it down to the best of my abilities.
For the longest time I found solitude in video games. I was somewhat religious, with Allah's mercy revolving around my life, but there was something more... invigorating about talking about my favorite video game characters and little fanfictions I made in my head ever since I was little. I would even stay up late at night creating scenarios with Club Penguin characters and sharing them with my sister, until she would go to bed or my parents would yell at my younger self to shut up.
I was introduced to Pokémon when I was around 7 or 8, thanks to my brother's friend's cartridge of Pokémon Emerald. Granted, I didn't make it very far, mostly due to how little I understood the story and that the friend wanted the cartridge back after some time, but I remember clearly that my starter and only Pokémon was Treecko. Obviously, it left a significant impact on me.
Since then, I stuck with what I would soon come to know as a hyperfixation. You see, I have been recently diagnosed with adult ADHD by one psychologist, and another claimed that me having anxiety is a possibility (keep that one in mind). It did help that, at the time, Pokémon movies were dominating a certain Arabic tv channel- Pokémon 4Ever was somehow a favorite among the audience, considering how frequently it would play.
Years later, I was reintroduced to the Pokémon franchise by the age of twelve, with my brother getting a White 2 cartridge. As soon as G6 was announced, I begged my father to get me X, which he did and I enjoyed.
Ironically, around that time, well, my grandfather, the one from dad's side, eventually passed away. My family situation wasn't at all great, with my parents' continuous arguing going on even until early morning hours, even as soon as dad returned from his out-of-country job, so it definitely did leave an impact on my father. I do admit, my dad was not great, neither was my mother, but now is not the time to talk about that.
What I will say about it is how I found peace with my Pokémon X copy, and how my Delphox, Arthur, would smile back at me. A childish piece of code, I know, but it didn't fail to make me feel better after a rough day.
Timeskip several more years, I got Pokémon Moon by my side. It was graduation. My father, in his wisdom, decided to divorce my mother as we were getting ready for the ceremony. Needless to say, she was a wreck, and it took me a while to recompose myself for the ceremony and not break down as soon as dad came to hug me. The 'prom' was a café visit, and I really didn't bother interacting with my social peers. Not like I was popular among them, anyway. I just spent my time preventing a breakdown by watching the latest dubbed episodes of the Sun and Moon anime.
Now, here you can see that the franchise helped me through a lot, even during the instances I prefer not to mention (fallout of the divorce, mom's mannerisms towards my siblings and I, treatment from dad's family, etc etc) due to privacy reasons. Which, unfortunately, brings us to today.
I endured the XYZ/SM wars. I had gone through now-deleted hate messages that once drove me nuts. However, none swung harder to my chest than BBND.
I admit, I clung onto that stupid idea, that there are non-toxic dexers out there that recognize the person behind the screen. I wanted so hard to keep my role as some... peace maker, like the impossible hero complex I sought after during those years. I was neutral. Was, and not anymore.
I won't bother listing down everything they did under the Sun; this sub is doing an excellent job at archiving their more horrible acts and words, so I can't find a reason to list exactly everything that left a negative impact on me...
Well, aside from a certain incident- several users bashing me on the youtube comments after I claimed that I expected the dex cut as early as when G6 was announced, and their words and frequency of the replies got to me enough that I deleted my original comment. I don't remember the video, and I stopped getting notifications once I deleted my og comment- all chances of getting proof gone out the window. However, I can't help but say that these words clung on to me.
Lately, I just can't think for myself anymore. I consciously recognize each and every talent poured into the very franchise, but anytime I look at Pokémon their taunts and insults echo through my brain, calling the people behind them nothing but robots inside a large, grey corporation. That they simply don't matter and all they care about is money, while I just know that it is not true. They then mix with every self-deprecating thought to clash onto me, bringing me to tears every time. Today, it got so bad I had to go someplace private, somewhere where I couldn't bear to hold my own weight as I sobbed and begged to the air to just fucking stop, that they did enough and my life was already bent to their will, and all they need to do now is to get out of my head. I wasn't able to breathe properly as my own arms felt like disintegrating.
Obviously, I'm writing this hours after that shit. I want these thoughts to disappear out of my life, right here, right now. I feel like I need some fucking exorcism at this point, even if it is psychological in nature I became this desperate for salvation. My life sucked, I admit this, and Pokémon was one of my most cherished forms of escapism- probably one of the only good ones, anyway.
Please, please help me find a way to recognize all the wonderful people who work on the games, and those who write them and design each and every Pokémon, to drill it all back to my head. I just want to scoop out these intrusive thoughts, even if it means to chop my own skull off to do so. It's getting tiring, mentally and physically, and I can't do this anymore for the long run.
I'm sorry for wasting your time.

2020.05.25 20:46 RenziumZ REBOOT!!!

So a little background before we begin, when I was 11-12, I didn’t like Pokémon, thought it was stupid. I always saw Pokémon Ads waiting for the show I wanted, I saw part of one episode of B&W and I saw the Christmas episode of X&Y.
So I decided to start from the very beginning if I was gonna get into it. So my starting region was Kanto, the old classic trio, Brock, Misty, and Ash. Love them, I used to make as many pokeballs as ash had Pokémon, which totaled up to be like 12.
So anyway, I was so hooked, I wanted to watch the rest, so I started from indigo, and have worked my way up to about halfway through galactic battles.
Now, I’m aware that the first episode of Gen 5, is what people consider a soft reboot, they never say it explicitly, and that makes sense, as I’ve heard ash briefly sees Charizard again later
And I wish it wasn’t spoiled, but I’ve known for years now that Ash was runner up in Kalos.
So, three or so years ago. When Alola started, I decided I was too far behind, and I didn’t want to miss the ew stuff, so I watched Sun&Moon in conjunction with Gen 4. And it was great. Now, I’m still way behind, but I know Ash wins, which maybe that’s why this is happening, but it’s not a “real” win, it’s an island win, like the orange islands.
So, THE REBOOTED THE SERIES FOR POKÉMON JOURNEYS!!! Not a soft reboot, a full on reboot. Now, I’m aware that the 20th movie rebooted Ash Journey, but the movies never play into the anime, and either way, ash is so awesome in that movie, three badges on his own (conveniently glossing over the pewter and cerulean city gyms) but still. But my point is, they have more liberty with the movies
But this is unacceptable, I mean, there’s two ways I can think about it.
  1. This is a blessing in disguise, I get to start a new canon by itself, and know the definite ending to the one I’ve been with for so long
  2. Realize that I’ve been reading the final chapter of a book that’s been a huge part of my life for several years, even though I was only halfway through.
I’m so upset, I wish I had kept up with Alola, and I wish I had caught up with the rest of Gen 4, 5, and 6. Now it’s over and I’m not even done. I hope this is experimental, and ash will claim his rightful place as the one who was killed by two mythical Pokémon, was the prophet of Lugia, went back in time. And all the shit he’s ever done!
I didn’t even mention the fact that I haven’t seen 4Ever or any of the movies after that, besides I Choose You, and The Power of Us
TL;DR- Pokémon Journeys is a reboot, and it ruined my childhood

2019.12.28 19:02 The_Sunhunter The Myths and Legends of the Pokémon from Gen 2: Delibird to Celebi

The first half of this post (Cleffa to Sneasel) can be found here https://www.reddit.com/mythology/comments/egtt1t/the_myths_and_legends_of_the_pok%C3%A9mon_from_gen_2/

#225: Delibird) –
I’m not sure if this counts, but Delibird seems to be a Penguin, Puffin, or Snowy Owl with elements of Santa Claus mixed in there. Santa Claus is an American Christian folk figure who brings presents for well-behaved children on the night of Christmas Eve. There seems to be several different figures that have been combined to create the modern conception of an old man dressed in red and white who flies through the sky at night with a group of reindeer bringing gifts to children; which are Saint Nicholas of Myra, the Dutch folk figure Sinterklaas, and the pre-Christianized Germanic god Wudon/Odin.
Saint Nicholas was a 4th century Greek Christian bishop who was renowned for his generosity towards the less fortunate and was the patron saint of children, among many other things. Starting in the Middle Ages, children would often be given gifts on the night before December 6th as a way to commemorate the saint as this date is his name day/day of death. During the Protestant Reformation in the 16th and 17th centuries, the gift-giving date was changed to December 24th-25th as individuals like Martin Luther believed that the celebration of saints was taking focus away from Jesus Christ. Even though Martin Luther offered an alternative gift-giver in the form of the Christkind, Saint Nicholas still remained a popular gift-giving figure in many Christianized European countries.
Three such countries are the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg; which all celebrate Saint Nicholas’ Day with the figure of Sinterklaas and the festivity of the Sinterklass Feast. Sinterklass appears as an elderly pope adorned in red that rides a white horse and carries a book with the names of every child who has behaved and misbehaved during the year. On the night before Saint Nicholas’ Day, Sinterklass rides his horse in the sky, dropping presents and candy down chimneys along with the help of Zwarte Piet who climbs down chimneys while carrying a sack full of candy. Likewise, children will leave their shoes full of hay and a bowl of water near the fireplace for Sinterklass’ horse, with the children then finding the hay replaced with candy or presents in the morning. These traditions obviously inspired the practices of leaving stockings by the fireplace and a snack for Santa Claus as well as the belief that Santa rides in an airborne sleigh pulled by reindeer on the night before Christmas.
Sinterklass and Santa Claus both riding/being pulled by an airborne ungulate has been theorized to originate from Germanic beliefs about the god Wudon, the Wild Hunt, and the festivity of Yuletide. There are several legends that tell of the Norse god Odin riding his flying 8-legged horse Sleipnir to Helheim; the Norse land of the dead. Along with many other things, Odin was considered a god of the dead, especially evident by his role as leader of the Valkyries and caretaker of Valhalla. As such, most attestations of the Wild Hunt, a procession of specters or other supernatural creatures who ride through the midwinter sky at night, consider Odin (also called Wudon) as being the one who leads the Hunt while riding on Sleipnir. It has been theorized that the midwinter feast of Yuletide to the ancient Germanic people was meant to honor the ancestors (possibly the ones who are participating in the Wild Hunt), the king, and the gods (chiefly Odin, Freyr, and Njörðr). Also worth mentioning is that one of Odin’s many names was Jólnir, which means “Yule Figure”. As the Germanic people became Christianized, Yuletide would become known as Christmastide.
The figure of Santa Claus seems to originate from the 19th century. While the Americanized name of Sinterklass seems to have first been used in 1773 and popularized in 1809 by Washington Irving’s History of New York, an 1821 poem entitled “Old Santeclaus with Much Delight” was the first to mention some of Santa’s now famous characteristics, such as having a sleigh pulled by reindeer and his nightly ride taking place on Christmas Eve. The 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (also commonly known as “’Twas the Night Before Christmas”) is attributed to giving Santa Claus some more of his staple characteristics, such as being an overweight and jolly older man, which was further popularized by Thomas Nast’s illustrations of Santa starting in 1863. Some of Santa’s characteristics also merged with the English Father Christmas, who was seen as the personification of Christmas and was associated with adult merry-making up until the late 19th century when he began to become more of a gift-giving figure as well.
Delibird seems to have several traits in common with Santa, such as having a red and white coloration, being an Ice/Flying-type, and the fact that its tail looks and operates like a sack with which it uses to store and generously give out food. I don’t think I need to point this out, but Delibird’s species is the Delivery Pokémon and its name is even a portmanteau of “Delivery” and “Bird”. I also feel the need to mention that it makes me feel all kinds of warm and fuzzy writing this up just a couple of days before Christmas.
#228: Houndour) and #229: Houndoom) –
Two devilish fire dogs, Houndour and Houndoom are very much supposed to be Hellhounds. Hellhounds are a prominent type of creature throughout many European cultures that conceptualize the beasts as being large, otherworldly canines that are associated with the afterlife and may even be an omen of one’s impending doom. Hellhounds are usually described as having black fur, and for cultures that associate the afterlife or the Underworld with fire, the Hellhound may even take on some fiery attributes; hence why both Houndour and Houndoom are dual Dark/Fire-types. Some of the most famous Hellhounds are Cerberus of Greek myth who guards the entrance to the Underworld, the Cŵn Annwn (Hounds of Annwn) of Welsh myth that take part in the Wild Hunt at the behest of Gwyn ap Nudd; and the Barghest, Black Shuck, and Church Grim of English folklore (or simply the concept of the Black Dog ghost)).
Of the Hellhounds mentioned, Houndour and Houndoom take some inspiration specifically from the Cŵn Annwn, which are described as being white with red ears; as white was seen as the color of the supernatural, whilst red denoted death. Likewise, both Houndour and Houndoom have black and red fur and are covered in what is meant to resemble ivory skulls and bones. Similar to the Cù-sìth, the barking of the Cŵn Annwn was also seen as a death warning, which is touched upon by Houndoom’s Diamond and Pearl Pokédex entry, which says that “Long ago, people imagined its eerie howls to be the call of the grim reaper).” I believe that along with this, Houndoom’s design is also evocative of the Christian Devil, having goat-like horns and a pointed tail similar to what people typically envision Satan to look like. Fun fact, it is theorized that Satan’s humanoid-goat hybrid appearance stems from the Greek nature deity Pan), who was often depicted as a Faun or Satyr. Houndour and Houndoom’s connections with Satan go even further than this though, as the tail of Houndoom’s Mega Evolution turns into a fork-shape, most likely representing the Devil’s pitchfork or Hades’/Pluto)’s bident. Houndour’s Japanese name also translates to Delvil (an obvious corruption of the word “Devil”), while Houndoom’s name translates to Hellgar (possibly a semi-portmanteau of the words “Hell”, Satan’s abode and the afterlife location for sinners, and “guard”).
#240: Magby) –
As previously mentioned when I discussed its first evolution Magmar), Magby and its evolutionary line all seem to share some slight similarities with the Karura of Japanese myth. The Karura is said to be a creature with the body of a human, the head of a bird, and has the ability to breathe fire.
#243: Raikou) –
As I have briefly stated in my Gen 1 analysis when talking about Electabuzz), the first of Gen 2’s Legendary Beast Trio and the embodiment of the lightning bolt that burned the Brass Tower, Raikou is based on Raijū; the bestial companion of the Shinto thunder and lightning god Raijin. Raijū typically appears as a white and blue wolf or cat somewhat similar to Raikou’s saber-toothed tiger appearance and is said to cause havoc during thunderstorms, most likely meaning that Raijū is thought to be the lightning of Raijin given sentience. Strangely, Raijū is also said to be rather found of sleeping in people’s belly buttons, which causes Raijin to become annoyed and shoot the person with an arrow made of lightning to wake Raijū up. The Gen 3 Pokémon Manectric) and the Gen 7 legendary Zeraora) are also comparable to Raijū.
#244: Entei) –
The embodiment of the fire that burned the Brass Tower of Ecruteak City down, Entei is similar to Gen 1’s Growlithe) and Arcanine) in that it also seems to be based on Chinese Guardian Lions, which are colloquially known as Lion-Dogs or Foo Dogs. Since lions are a foreign species to China, most representations of the creatures were often exaggerated and most likely formed around very minimal information. This may be why Entei looks like a large dog like a St. Bernard) with somewhat lion-like features such as a mane made out of smoke. The Guardian Lions themselves are a pair of statues that were traditionally placed in front of buildings of significant importance and were meant to act as wards against evil spirits. The Guardian Lions are typically envisioned as being a male-female duo, with the male holding an orb) under its paw while the female is accompanied by a cub. Similar kinds of statues eventually made their way to other Asiatic countries, such as the Komainu statues of Japan starting around the Nara period (710-794 A.D.). Using a pair of statues to guard the entrance to shrines or temples seems to be a very popular trend, with the Buddhist Niō statues and the Inari Fox statues being two more prominent examples. I’m sort of going off of on a tangent here, but this video on Raikou by TheNationalDex YouTube channel points out that all three legendary beasts have head ornaments that are meant to represent the 3 games of Gen 2 (Raikou is Silver, Entei is Gold, and Suicune is Crystal). Entei’s head ornament somewhat resembles a Kabuto, the name of the helmet worn by Samurai (and the object that Gen 1’s Kabuto) and Kabutops) get their names from). This coupled with its Guardian Lion inspiration could signal to players that Entei is meant to be a protector of some kind. However, this headpiece could also be seen as a crown in the shape of flames, as Entei’s name is a combination of the Japanese words for “blazing heat” or “flame” and “emperor”.
As for why Entei (and by extension Growlithe and Arcanine) is a Fire-type, I have seen some people state that there is an association between lions and fire, though I have failed to find any sources that corroborate these claims. The only associations I can find are very tenuous, with probably the most likely of these supposed associations being the Chimera of Lycia) in Greek mythology, which was a hybrid monster with the ability to breath fire and had the body of a lion, a goat’s head on its back, and a serpent for a tail. Some other associations I have found deal more with lions and the Sun, such as the Leo Zodiac Sign and the symbol of the Green Lion devouring the Sun in alchemy, which both serve as inspirations for the Gen 7 legendary Pokémon Solgaleo) instead of Entei. If you can find any associations between lions and fire, I would be more than grateful if you let me know down in the comments, especially since there are several other Fire-type lion Pokémon (e.g. Gen 6’s Litleo) and Pyroar)).
#245: Suicune) –
The final of the 3 Legendary Beasts and the embodiment of the rains that dowsed the flames of the now-Burned Tower, Suicune seems an awful lot like a Qilin, which is also sometimes called the “Chinese Unicorn”. The Qilin, which was first mentioned in the Zuo Zhuan during the 5th century B.C., is a chimerical creature that has the head, antlers, and scales of a Chinese Dragon, along with the body of a hoofed animal like a horse, ox, or deer. Starting in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) as a result of Zheng He’s expeditions to Eastern Africa, comparisons between the Qilin and giraffes were made; as the giraffe’s long neck, tessellated coat patterns, and antler-like ossicones all seem very similar to many descriptions of Chinese Dragons. In fact, the Japanese name for the Qilin, Kirin, is synonymous with giraffes. The Qilin is sometimes described as having a single antler, which has leant itself comparisons to Western conceptions of the Unicorn. However, possessing a single horn is not exclusive to the Qilin in Chinese mythology, so the comparisons between the Qilin and the Unicorn are pretty much superficial.
While not hooved and resembling something more akin to a canine, it is still pretty apparent that the single crystal-like protrusion on Suicune’s head as well as the diamond-shaped patterns on Suicune’s coat are similar to many descriptions of the Qilin. The Qilin is also described as having an upward-moving mane, which could also be similar to the cloud-like mane on Suicune’s back. Interesting enough, Buddhist depictions of the Qilin usually mention that the Qilin, wanting not to harm a single living thing, will refuse to walk on even a single blade of grass; choosing to instead travel on water or clouds. This is perfectly exemplified by Suicune, who is “Said to be the reincarnation of north winds” who “…blows around the world” and “…runs across the land with gliding elegance” according to its Gold, Crystal, and Emerald Pokédex entries. And as I have previously mentioned, Suicune’s mane and the ribbon-like things coming off its back resemble a cloud and wind currents. The movie Pokémon 4Ever also shows Suicune running on bodies of water to purify them. Speaking of which, numerous Pokédex entries mention that it can “instantly purify filthy, murky water”, which seems to be a trait that it borrowed from the Western Unicorn, which was believed to be able to cure diseases and purify poisoned liquids with its horn.
#249: Lugia) –
The mascot for Pokémon Silver and the “…guardian of the seas” that “quietly spends its time deep at the bottom of the sea because its powers are too strong”, I am almost certain that Lugia is meant to be Ryūjin, the tutelary Dragon God of the sea from Japanese Shintoism. Japanese Dragons or Ryū can be seen as water Kami, and as such Ryūjin is a dragon Kami that controls the ocean’s tides with 2 jewels in his undersea palace called Ryūgū-jō. Interesting enough, Lugia’s shiny coloration seems to be very similar to Ryūjin’s palace, which was said to be made out of red and white coral. Probably one of the most famous stories that involves Ryūjin is the folktale of Urashima Tarō, a man who saves a turtle and is transported to Ryūgū-jō to meet with the Dragon God and his daughter Otohime. Watatsumi, and by extension the 3 Watatsumi gods that were created by Izanagi bathing himself after returning from Yomi, are all thought to be alternative names for Ryūjin. There is a similar figure to Ryūjin in Chinese mythology called the Dragon King who, like Ryūjin, is also a water and weather god as well as the ruler of the four metaphorical seas of China that were associated with the four cardinal directions. Several of Lugia’s Pokédex entries, such as the one from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, also state that “If it flaps its wings, it is said to cause a 40-day storm”; a detail that not only highlights Lugia’s status as a water and weather deity, but is also most likely an allusion towards the Flood story of the Judeo-Christian Book of Genesis that described a storm that lasted for 40 days and 40 nights. This isn’t really related to mythology, but I thought it was cool that according to Bulbapedia the location where Lugia is found in the Gen 2 games, the Whirl Islands, is based on Awaji Island and the giant whirlpools in the Naruto Strait.
#250: Ho-Oh) –
The mascot for Pokémon Gold, the leader of the Legendary Beast Trio, and Lugia’s fiery counterpart; Ho-Oh is, without a doubt, based on the Chinese Fenghuang, known to Japanese and English-speakers as the Hō-ō bird. Contemporary conceptions of the Fenghuang see the creature as the “King of the Birds” and as a hybridization of several different bird species. In fact, the Fenghaung is often considered to be the “Chinese Phoenix)”, which explain’s Ho-Oh’s partial Fire-typing, as well as its hidden ability Regenerator) and how it had the power to resurrect the 3 Pokémon that became the Legendary Beasts. The Fenghuang is also said to have a five-colored plumage (red, yellow, green, black, and white), which just so happens to be all the colors that Ho-Oh’s plumage possesses. The multiple colors of the Fenghaung is also most likely why Ho-Oh is associated with rainbows and why several of its Pokédex entries mention “A legend says that its body glows in seven colors.”
During the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-220 A.D.), the Fenghaung was actually presented as 2 birds facing each other, the male Feng and the female Haung. However, starting in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368 A.D.), The male Feng and female Haung became the singular Fenghaung and was often used as the feminine representation of the Chinese Empress, often paired with a dragon to represent the Emperor; which is why Ho-Oh’s counterpart is a dragon, albeit one that is closer to the Western Wyvern instead of the Eastern Lóng. The imagery of the Fenghuang paired with a dragon was later frequently used for wedding decorations, as the two creatures represent a harmonious union between wife and husband, as well as a balance between Yin and Yang. However, Ho-Oh’s connection to Lugia goes even further than this. The Fenghaung is also often confused with the very similar Vermillion Bird, one of the Four Symbols of traditional Chinese astronomy and the representative of the southern cardinal direction. Another one of the Four Symbols is the Azure Dragon, which I think is a pretty fitting description for Lugia.
I apologize, for once again I am going to discuss something about Ho-Oh and Lugia that isn’t related to mythology; the two towers that are associated with the Pokémon. I think it’s interesting that the Brass ToweBurned Tower and Tin Tower seem to be a mixture of two different pairs of temples in Japan. The first pair is Kinkaku-ji (Gold Pavilion Temple) and Ginkaku-ji (Silver Pavilion Temple) both located in Kyoto. What makes this pair so interesting is that the roof of Kinkaku-ji is adorned with a bronze Fenghuang ornament, making this a dead ringer for the primary inspiration behind the Tin Tower that Ho-Oh used to perch on 150 years prior to the events of Gold, Silver, and Crystal. The second pair of temples that the two towers seem to be based on are Tō-ji (East Temple) and Sai-ji (West Temple) that are also located in Kyoto, which I guess shouldn’t be all too surprising since the Johto region is based on the real-world Kansai region, which contains Kyoto in it. Why Tō-ji and Sai-ji are important to this discussion is because Sai-ji actually burned down twice, once in 990 A.D and a second time in 1233 A.D., with the building being left unrepaired and abandoned after the second burning; which draws a very clear connection to the Brass Tower that became the Burned Tower after a mysterious lightning bolt struck the tower 150 years prior to the events of the Gen 2 games.
#251: Celebi) –
As a time-traveling onion fairy, there is very little that Celebi can be compared to. However, its role as a “…guardian of the forest” and “…a forest deity” does show that Celebi could be seen as some sort of nature spirit or vegetation deity. Probably the closest thing to Celebi is the Greek Nymph, which is thought to be a kind of spirit that inhabits and maintains aspects of nature. Nymphs are often thought of as appearing as young human-like females and since the ancient literature of the Medieval period and the Renaissance, nymphs have also been compared with fairies and elves, with the latter 2 eventually replacing the roles that the nymph once possessed. Since there are so many different aspects of nature, nymphs have actually been broken down into different categories depending on which part of nature they represent (e.g. the Naiads for small bodies of fresh water, the Oceanids for the ocean, the Nereids for the seas, the Oreads for the mountains, and the Hesperides for the evening). The kind of nymph that I think Celebi is meant to be is a Dryad, the type of nymphs that are associated with trees and forests. There are even different types of dryad for different types of trees; such as the Daphnaie for laurel trees, the Meliae for ash trees, and the Epimēliads for apple trees. There is also the Hamadryad, which was thought to be a dryad that was bound to a specific tree and would die if said tree was cut down. There is a similar spirit to the Hamadryad in Japanese folklore called the Kodama).
As for vegetation deity, most of these figures, such as the Greek deities Dionysus and Persephone as well as the Mesopotamian goddess Inanna/Ishtar, go through a cycle of death and rebirth (or in Persephone’s case, going from the Underworld to the surface world and back again). The vegetation deity also playing the part of a dying-and-rising deity is usually meant to represent the changing of the seasons and the growth and decay of plant-life. While Celebi isn’t mentioned to cyclically die, it does frequently travel through time to care for forests that have presumably died in the future, and its Silver Pokédex entry says that “When Celebi disappears deep in a forest, it is said to leave behind an egg it brought from the future”; continuing a cycle that starts with death and ends with new life. There are two other legendary Pokémon that seem to act like dying-and-rising deities as well as the cycles of nature; those being Gen 6’s Xerneas) and Yveltal).
Thank you everyone for taking the time to read all this, it really means a lot. I am super excited to start talking about Gen 3 (Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald) and Gen 4 (Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum), as those are my two favorite Pokémon games.

2019.12.05 12:27 SpeedDuel 10 years ago, you couldn't own any of the Pokémon movies on Blu-ray. Today, most of them are available!

Here is a picture of my Blu-rays, along with some other stuff!
Originally, I collected all the movies on DVD since that was the only to own any of them until 2012 when Echo Bridge released Movies 4-7 onto a single Blu-ray disc. It wasn't until 2016 when Viz Media started releasing the other movies onto Blu-ray as well that I actually decided to double-dip.
Today, most of the movies are available on Blu-ray. The Echo Bridge release of Movies 4-7 is OOP (out-of-print) and isn't cheap to find anymore. Viz Media skipped Movies 8 & 9, likely because they couldn't a complete Blu-ray release of the Hoenn movies with two of the movies' rights being held by Lionsgate; 6 & 7. The Unova movies recently got a release, so the Kalos movies shouldn't be far behind. And Blu-rays have been common practice for the newer movies since Movie 20.
At the same time though, the earlier Blu-rays are far from perfect. The Echo Bridge release of Movies 4-7 are missing bonus features which include the Pikachu shorts, the same is true for Viz Media's release of Movies 1-3. Because of that, the original DVD releases are still necessary to get the full experience. It also doesn't help that Echo Bridge crammed four Pokémon movies onto a single disc, messed up 4Ever's aspect ratio, and had an ugly blue tint applied to Heroes. But until Lionsgate chooses to re-release those movies on Blu-ray themselves, or Viz Media eventually secures the distribution rights to them, I don't see any other options for those.
Regardless though, I'm extremely happy to own the majority of them on Blu-ray. I love revisiting these films and having them all in one place. In an age where films and shows are scattered across numerous streaming platforms, owning them without a monthly fee attached is best case scenario for myself.

2019.11.27 06:10 sonic10158 My Pokémon TV and Movie Collection

My Pokémon TV and Movie Collection
Pokémon has been a part of my life ever since I was about 5 or 6 years old way back when the first season of the anime was being released in the USA. It is what truly got me into Anime, Video Games [I had prior experience with Video Games before Pokémon thanks to my aunt gifting me her SEGA Genesis, but Pokémon is what truly made me a gamer], and even movie collecting! I no longer have the first Pokémon title I ever had unfortunately, which was Pokémon the Movie 2000 on VHS. It was very painful up until a few years ago to collect this anime in the USA because only a few seasons were widely available.

My collection of the Pokémon Anime Seasons. All are from the USA Except for the Pokémon Chronicles set and the two HUGE Pokédex Sets
Luckily, VIZ Media has started releasing every single season on DVD now. I used to have the original Master Quest and Advanced season box sets, however I have since sold them because the new releases are physically smaller. Unfortunately, thanks to over-censorship of this series, these recent releases have more episodes removed than ever before in the earliest seasons. Due to this, I have two copies of the first season on DVD. The original 3 boxsets which include Holiday Hi-Jynx as well as the more shelf friendly "Complete Season" which has it removed. To cut out the middle man, I took the liberty of swapping the discs of the two so that I have the shelf efficiency of the new release and the Jynx friendly content of the older release!
I have also refused to upgrade to the newest version of the Orange Islands season because of over censorship. There are at least 2 episodes outright removed because of maybe 5 seconds of Jynx footage, not to mention they didn't even bother to fix the absolutely screwed up format of the first disc of the season that the set I have has. Instead of playing the intro, episode, outro, intro, episode, etc, it is formatted to where if you click play all, it will play the intro, one episode, then throws you to the main menu's episode list where you have to manually click each episode! Discs 2 and 3 do not do this, only the first! This is because Disc 1 is just a reprint of the original individual volume release that the season had many years ago.
I will give credit to the new Viz releases credit, though, they do manage to include the Pikachu's Jukebox and PokéRaps. In fact, that Bluray release of the first 1/3rd of the first season actually includes the partitioned PokéRap that would have aired with the episodes years ago! I never dreamed I would see that again.
This brings me to those two MASSIVE boxes at the bottom! Perhaps the most unique items in this collection, these are Magna Pacific releases from Australia. Instead of being separated by seasons, these are separated by the respective regions. The Kanto and Orange Islands box set includes all of the Indigo League, Orange Islands, and Battle Frontier seasons. The Johto box set includes all of Johto Journeys, Johto League Champions, and Master Quest. Unfortunately, these australian releases lack the PokéRaps, Pikachu's Jukebox, and Pokémon Karaokémon (except I did find one episode where they seemed to forget to remove it from). The only other Australian set in my collection is Pokémon Chronicles. It has never been released in the USA, and I have no easy way to watch it, but at least I have a copy of the spin off. The picture quality is abysmal on certain episodes, but I am just happy to have the spinoff in any capacity. There was a UK release, so if anyone has it, I would love to hear if the quality is any good because I might buy that to replace the Australian one.

My Collection of Pokémon movies. I consider Mewtwo Returns a movie in my heart so I have it included here instead of with the Anime
This is where my Collection first began. My very first titles were Pokémon 4Ever and Pokémon Heroes, which I got the years they released! Over time, I got the first 3 movies as well as got the post-Heroes movies as they came out. I don't remember exactly when I got Mewtwo Returns, but I know it was a good bit after the first 3. I will say this, it really pains me to see how the amount of effort placed in these releases decreased from Destiny Deoxys to Manaphy and the Temple of the Sea, and then from Rise of Darkrai onwards had absolutely zero effort placed in them whatsoever. I have never watched some of these newest movies outside of putting the discs in to confirm that there are no special features. I also have not watched the reboot movies in any capacity, so I don't know if there are special features in them or not.

Every time you blink, Miramax re-posts Movies 4-7. But god forbid we see the Pikachu shorts again!
Miramax, I think it is time for an intervention. You release Movies 4-7 at least 7 times a year in a slightly different packaging. This one is relatively the best one because it has all four in one set and that set is a Blu-ray. By the way, the picture here is in widescreen, but the quality is either no better than the original DVDs, or in the case of 4Ever, is FAR WORSE than the DVD release. It is extremely fuzzy, and has a strong sepia tint. And of course, they will never fix the Pokémon Heroes Dark Blue tint...
And then several years after that set came out, Pokémon became 20 years old and we got the other sets from The Pokémon Company! Finally can see the first 3 movies, the 4 Diamond and Pearl movies, and the 4 Black and White movies all on bluray! That means that the the only movies still not available on bluray in any capacity are Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and Manaphy and the Temple of the Sea. But unfortunately, not a single one of these sets include the Pikachu shorts, nor do they include the Dolby Surround sound of the original DVDs. Therefore, my DVD collection will remain with me until Ash becomes a Pokémon Master and meets his dad and we hear back from Kurt and the GS Ball.

Pokémon and 4K. There's something I thought I would never see together! I actually really enjoyed this movie, but the fan service was directed towards people like me in particular
I actually forgot to include this in my Pokémon Movie Collection picture, but I will pretend that I meant to do this so the Live Action and Animated movies are separate! I would not mind seeing more of this world in the future.
And there you have it, my entire Pokémon DVD/Bluray collection! I am sorry that this post became so long. It was not my intention to write a book, but I just have a lot of nostalgia for this franchise and I just have a lot on my mind about this collection in particular. This is also the first time I've attempted to embed pictures in a text post here, inspired by another post here, so I hope it turned out correctly!

2019.09.03 02:53 TeacherHeze [Pokemon] Prof Oak choose Pikachu for Ash because he remembers him having it in the events of Pokémon 4ever

As the title says, in the 4th movie, Oak goes forward in time and battles alongside Ash and Pikachu. After Celebi returns him to his timeline, he remembers this in the future and later tells Ash, when it’s time, that the other starters (Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur) were “already taken” because he knows from continuity’s perspective that Ash has that Pikachu. At the end of the movie, it evens shows Oak with a pic of Pikachu drawn in the notebook, kinda confirming this theory.

2019.07.09 09:47 ItsyaboiDemo Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Gamecube was released on November 21, 2001.

Super Smash Bros. Melee is a crossover fighting video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the GameCube. It was first released in Japan on November 21, 2001, in North America on December 3, 2001, in Europe on May 24, 2002, and in Australia on May 31, 2002. The second installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, it features characters from Nintendo video game franchises such as Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, and Pokémon. The stages and gameplay modes reference or take designs from these franchises as well.
Melee includes all playable characters from the first game, and also adds characters from franchises such as Fire Emblem, of which no games had been released outside Japan at the time. Melee's gameplay system offers an unorthodox approach to the fighting game genre, with a counter that measures damage with increasing percentages, representing the knockback the character will experience, rather than a depleting health bar seen in most fighting games. It builds on the first game by adding new gameplay features and playable characters. Following the popularity of its multiplayer gameplay, Melee has been featured in many competitive gaming tournaments, and is one of the most popular competitive fighting games.
Super Smash Bros. Melee received critical acclaim, as well as several awards and acknowledgements from various publications; it is now considered one of the greatest video games ever made. It achieved strong sales upon its release, becoming the GameCube's best-selling title with over seven million copies sold by 2008. Super Smash Bros. Melee was followed by Super Smash Bros. BrawlProject M for the Wii in 2008.

Gameplay

Like its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Melee differs from traditional fighting games as the objective is to force their opponents beyond the boundaries of the stage. Most attacks inflict damage and can, if enough damage is dealt, knock back the enemy. Each character's health is measured by a meter that represents damage as a percentage. The higher the percentage value, the farther the player gets knocked back, and the easier they are to knock off the stage, which will result in the character's death and the loss of a stock, or life. Unlike other games of the same genre, in which moves are entered by button-input combinations, most moves in Super Smash Bros. Melee can be accessed via one-button presses and a joystick direction.
During battles, items related to Nintendo games or merchandise fall onto the game field. These items have purposes ranging from inflicting damage on the opponent to restoring health to the player. Additionally, most stages have a theme relating to a Nintendo franchise or a specific Nintendo game and are interactive to the player. Although the stages are rendered in three dimensions, players can only move on a two-dimensional plane. Not all stages are available immediately; some stages must be "unlocked" by achieving particular requirements. Some stages feature moving elements and platforms and hazards that harm players, while others lack these elements.

Single-player

Single-player mode provides the player with a variety of side-scrolling fighting challenges. The applicable modes range from "Classic Mode", which involves the player battling multiple opponents and a boss character, to the "Home Run Contest", a minigame involving the player trying to launch a sandbag as far as possible with a Home Run Bat. Some of these modes are personalized for the character; for example, the "Target Test" sets out a specialized area for a character in which they aim to destroy ten targets in the least amount of time they can. These areas may include references to that particular character's past and legacy. The "Board the Platforms" minigame from the prequel was not included in Melee. Melee introduced "Adventure Mode", which takes the player to several predefined universes of characters in the Nintendo franchise. "All-Star Mode" is an unlockable feature that requires the player to defeat every character in the game while having only three health supplements between battles.

Multiplayer

In the multiplayer mode, up to four players or computer-controlled characters may fight in a free-for-all or on separate teams. The central processing unit (CPU) characters' artificial intelligence (AI) difficulty is ranked from one to nine in ascending order of difficulty. Individual players can also be handicapped; the higher the handicap, the stronger the player. Victory is determined in five ways, depending on the game type. The most common multiplayer modes are “Time mode”, where the player or team with the most KOs and least falls wins after a predetermined amount of time, and "Stock mode", a battle in which the last player or team with lives remaining wins. This can be changed to less conventional modes like "Coin mode", which rewards the richest player as the victor. Players must collect coins created by hitting enemies and try not to lose them by falling off the stage; harder hits release higher quantities of coins. Other options are available, updating from Super Smash Bros., such as determining the number and type of items that appear during the battle.

Trophies

Trophies (known as "Figures" in the Japanese version) of various Nintendo characters and objects can be collected throughout the game. These trophies include figures of playable characters, accessories, and items associated with them as well as series and characters not otherwise playable in the game. The trophies range from the well-known to the obscure, and even characters or elements only released in Japan. Super Smash Bros. had a similar system of plush dolls; however, it only included the 12 playable characters. One trophy is exclusive to the Japanese version of the game.

Playable Characters

Super Smash Bros. Melee features 25 (26 if Zelda and Sheik are considered separate) characters, 13 more than its predecessor. Fourteen are available initially, while the other 11 characters require completing specific tasks to become available. Every character featured in the game is derived from a popular Nintendo franchise. All characters have a symbol that appears behind their damage meter which represents their series, such as a Triforce symbol behind Link's damage meter and a Poké Ball behind a Pokémon species. Some characters represent popular franchises, while others were less-known at the time of the release; Marth and Roy represent the Fire Emblem series, which was not released outside Japan at the time. The characters' appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee led to a rise in the popularity of the series. References are made throughout the game to the relationship between characters of the same universe; in one of the events from "Event mode", Mario must defeat his enemy Bowser to rescue Princess Peach. Furthermore, each character has recognizable moves from their original series, such as Samus's firearms from the Metroid series and Link's arsenal of weapons.

Development and Release

HAL Laboratory developed Super Smash Bros. Melee, with Masahiro Sakurai as the head of production. The game was one of the first games released on the GameCube and highlighted the advancement in graphics from the Nintendo 64. The developers wanted to pay homage to the debut of the GameCube by making an opening FMV sequence that would attract people's attention to the graphics. HAL worked with three separate graphic houses in Tokyo to make the opening sequence. On their official website, the developers posted screen shots and information highlighting and explaining the attention to physics and detail in the game, with references to changes from its predecessor. The game was in development for 13 months, and Sakurai called his lifestyle during this period "destructive" with no holidays and short weekends. Unlike the experimental first Super Smash Bros., he felt great pressure to deliver a quality sequel, claiming it was the "biggest project I had ever led up to that point". Despite the painful development cycle, Sakurai proudly called it "the sharpest game in the series... it just felt really good to play", even compared to its successor, Super Smash Bros. Brawl Project M.
On the game's official Japanese website, the developers explain reasons for making particular characters playable and explain why some characters were not available as playable characters upon release. Initially, the development team wanted to replace Ness with Lucas, the main character of Mother 3, but retained Ness in consideration of delays. The game's creators later included Lucas in the game's sequel, Super Smash Bros. Brawl Project M. Video game developer Hideo Kojima originally requested the inclusion of Solid Snake to Sakurai, but the game was too far into development. As with Lucas, development time allowed for his inclusion in Brawl. Marth and Roy were initially intended to be playable exclusively in the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Melee. However, they received favorable attention during the game's North American localization, leading to the decision for the developers to include them in the Western version.
Sakurai stated that the development team had suggested characters from four other games to represent the Famicom/NES era until the developers decided that the Ice Climbers would be in the game. The developers have noted characters that have very similar moves to each other on the website; such characters have been referred to as "clones" in the media. Nintendo also considered including GoldenEye 007's version of James Bond in the game, but this did not come to fruition. According to Sakurai, there were a number of problems preventing Bond's inclusion; these included his uses of realistic weapons and actor Pierce Brosnan's likeness, and the fact that Nintendo did not have the rights to the character.
Nintendo presented the game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2001 as a playable demonstration. The next major exposition of the game came in August 2001 at Spaceworld, when Nintendo displayed a playable demo that updated from the previous demo displayed at E3. Nintendo offered a playable tournament of the games for fans in which a GameCube and Super Smash Bros. Melee were prizes for the winner. Before the game's release, the Japanese official website included weekly updates, including screenshots and character profiles. Nintendo followed this trend with Super Smash Bros. Brawl Project M, in which there were daily updates by the game's developer, Masahiro Sakurai. Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu reported that Nintendo advertised the game in between showings of Pokémon 4Ever across movie theaters in Japan. In January 2003, Super Smash Bros Melee became part of the Player's Choice, a marketing label used by Nintendo to promote video games that have sold more than a million copies.In August 2005, Nintendo bundled the game with the GameCube for $99.99

Music

Super Smash Bros. Melee features both new and re-arranged music from many of Nintendo's popular gaming franchises. In 2002, Enterbrain released a soundtrack in Japan titled Dairantou Smash Brothers DX Orchestra Concert. The same soundtrack was released in 2003 as Smashing... Live! as a bonus for subscribing to Nintendo Power magazine in North America, and also as a free gift in an issue of the British Official Nintendo Magazine. The soundtrack does not include music taken directly from the game, but features many live orchestral arrangements performed by the New Japan Philharmonic. The game contains a number of unlockable tracks that can be obtained after making certain in-game accomplishments. On the same website, the developers have posted discussions about the game's music and voice acting between Masahiro Sakurai and the game's composers.
Dean Harrington is the game's in-game narrator, and also voices Master Hand and Crazy Hand.

Reception

Super Smash Bros. Melee received critical acclaim from reviewers, most of whom credited Melee's expansion of gameplay features from Super Smash Bros. Focusing on the additional features, GameSpy commented that "Melee really scores big in the 'we've added tons of great extra stuff' department". Reviewers compared the game favorably to Super Smash Bros. IGN's Fran Mirabella III stated that it was "in an entirely different league than the N64 version"; GameSpot's Miguel Lopez praised the game for offering a more advanced "classic-mode" compared to its predecessor, while detailing the Adventure Mode as "really a hit-or-miss experience". Despite a mixed response to the single-player modes, many reviewers expressed the game's multiplayer mode as a strong component of the game. In their review of the game, GameSpy stated that "you'll have a pretty hard time finding a more enjoyable multiplayer experience on any other console".
Melee's visuals garnered a positive reaction. GameSpot lauded the game's character and background models, stating that "the character models are pleasantly full-bodied, and the quality of their textures is amazing". IGN's Fran Mirabella III praised the game's use of physics, animation and graphics, although his colleague Matt Casamassina thought that "some of the backgrounds lack the visual polish endowed upon the characters" when giving a second opinion about the game.
Critics praised the game's orchestrated soundtrack; while GameSpot's Greg Kasavin commented that "it all sounds brilliant".GameSpy praised the music for its nostalgic effect, with soundtracks ranging from multiple Nintendo series.
Reviewers have welcomed the simplistic controls, but its "hyper-responsiveness", with the characters easily dashing and precise movements being difficult to perform, was expressed as a serious flaw of the game by GameSpot. With a milder criticism of controls, Bryn Williams of GameSpy commented that "movement and navigation seems slightly too sensitive". The basis of Melee's gameplay system is the battles between Nintendo characters, which has been suggested as being overly hectic; N-Europe questioned whether the gameplay is "too Frantic?", even though they enjoyed the variety of modes on offer. Similarly, Nintendo Spin's Clark Nielsen stated that "Melee was too fast for its own good", and "skill was more about just being able to wrap your head around what was happening as opposed to really getting into the combat".In regards to the pace of the game, Edge commented that it even made gameplay features such as "blocking" redundant, as the player is not given enough time to react to an attack.
Despite the new features added to the game, some reviews criticized Melee for a lack of originality and for being too similar to its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Caleb Hale from GameCritics.com noted that while it was "every bit as good as its Nintendo 64 predecessor" he also felt "the game doesn't expand much past that point". On a similar note, Edge stated that "it's not evolution; it's reproduction", in reference to a perceived lack of innovation. The nostalgic nature of the game received a positive reaction,[48] as well as the accompanying stages and items that allude to past Nintendo games. Gaming journalists have welcomed the roster of 25 Nintendo characters, as well as the trophy system, which Nintendo Spin labeled as "a great addition to this game".

Sales

When released in Japan, it became the fastest selling GameCube game with 358,525 units sold in the week ending November 25, 2001. This success continued as the game sold more than a million units only two months after its release, making it the first GameCube title to reach a million copies. The game also sold well in North America, where it sold 250,000-copies in nine days. In the United States, Super Smash Bros. Melee was the 19th best-selling video game in 2001 according to the NPD Group. By July 2006, it had sold 3.2 million copies and earned $125 million in the United States alone. Next Generation ranked it as the fifth highest-selling game launched for the PlayStation 2, Xbox or GameCube between January 2000 and July 2006 in that country. Approximately 4.06 million units have been sold in the country as of December 27, 2007. With a software-to-hardware ratio of 3:4 at one time, some have attributed the increasing sales of the GameCube near the launch date to Melee. As of March 10, 2008, Super Smash Bros. Melee is the best-selling GameCube game, with more than seven million copies sold worldwide. It has been estimated that at one point in time 70% of all GameCube owners also owned Melee.

Awards and Accolades

Several publications have acknowledged Super Smash Bros. Melee in competitions and awards. In their "Best of 2001" awards, GameSpy chose it as Best Fighting GameCube Game, IGN's reader choice chose it as Game of the Year, Electronic Gaming Monthly chose it as Best Multiplayer and Best GameCube Game, and GameSpot chose it as the Best GameCube Game and tenth best game of the year.
GameFAQs placed it sixth in a poll of the 100 best games ever and was in the final four of the "Best. Game. Ever." contest. In the 200th issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, the editors selected Melee as the 92nd most influential game in their "Top 200 Games of Their Time" list, defining Melee as "Billions of things to unlock, plus Yoshi pummeling Pikachu with a bat". In a similar competition, Nintendo Power named Super Smash Bros. Melee the 16th best game ever to appear on a Nintendo console, and selected it as the 2001 "Game of the Year". IGN named it the third best GameCube game of all-time in 2007 as a part of a feature reflecting on the GameCube's long lifespan, citing it as "the grand stage of fighters, much like Mario Kart is for racing fans". GameSpy chose it as fourth in a similar list, citing that it had "better graphics, better music, more characters, more gameplay modes, more secrets to discover" in comparison to its predecessor. The game was ranked 58th in Official Nintendo Magazine's "100 Greatest Nintendo Games Ever" feature. In 2019, Game Informer ranked it as the 2nd best fighting game of all time.

Professional Competition

Super Smash Bros. Melee is a widely played competitive video game and has been featured in several high-profile tournaments.[66] Many consider it to be the most competitively viable game in the series.[80][81][82] From 2004 to 2007, Major League Gaming sponsored Melee on its Pro Circuit.[83] Although dropping Melee from its 2007 Pro Circuit, MLG still sponsored a number of tournaments as part of the Underground Smash Series. Melee was also included in the Evolution Championship Series (Evo) in 2007, a fighting game tournament held in Las Vegas and was hosted at Evo 2013 after a charity vote to decide the final game to be featured in its tournament lineup.[84][85] Due to the large turnout and popularity that year, Evo again included Melee at their 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 events. In 2014 Melee was played at MLG Anaheim. Evo 2016 is the largest Melee tournament to date with 2,350 entrants.
Ken Hoang, also known as "The King of Smash", considered to be the game's best player from 2003 to 2006, has won over $50,000 from Smash tournaments. As of August 2018, Adam "Armada" Lindgren has won over $300,000 from Smash tournaments in total and over $90,000 in 2017 alone, placing his tournament winnings as one of the highest of all professional Melee players.
Several professional Melee players including Christopher "KillaOR" McKenzie, Isai Alvarado, and Ken were seen in the 2005 "I'm a Professional Gamer" episode of the MTV reality series True Life. The competitive Smash community was featured in a 2013 crowd-funded documentary called The Smash Brothers. The film detailed the history of the professional scene and profiled seven prominent Melee players including Hoang, Azen, Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman, Isai, PC Chris, KoreanDJ, and Evo 2013 and Evo 2014 champion, Joseph "Mang0" Marquez. Commentary footage from a Melee tournament is the origin of the Wombo combo internet meme.

Sequels

At the pre-E3 conference of 2005, Nintendo announced Melee's sequel, 2008's Super Smash Bros. Brawl Project M.Nintendo's president, Satoru Iwata requested Masahiro Sakurai to be the director of the game after the conference. Although being slower paced than Melee, the game retains most of the gameplay features of its predecessors while having major gameplay additions, such as a more substantial single-player mode and online play via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Taking advantage of the Wii's variety of controller options, the game allows the use of the Wii Remote, Nunchuk, GameCube controller, and the Classic Controller. Like Melee, the game makes references to games and franchises, including those that debuted after the release of Melee; for example, Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf's character designs are taken from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and a Nintendogs puppy is present as an Assist Trophy (a new item that summons computer-controlled characters from different games to briefly participate in the fight). Select stages and music from Melee are included in the sequel. The fourth and fifth installments, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo PDS and Pii U, were released in 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U respectively. The sixth installment, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate released in December 2018, for the Nintendo Switch.

2019.07.05 18:24 derstherower [NA] [Other] Has there been a series that has started off massive and then died faster than the Pokémon series?

After looking into the history of the Pokémon series after seeing this thread, I have to wonder if there had been a series of films that has started so big then died so fast as the Pokémon films in America?
The first five Pokémon anime movies were released in America between 1999-2003, and they actually have a pretty crazy history at the box office.
Pokémon: The First Movie was released at the height of Pokémania in America and if you were a kid at the time you might remember that it was the most important movie in the world. It made over $85 million domestically and debuted at #1 for the weekend at a $31 million opening. So many kids missed school to see it on its opening day that a lot of people called it the "Pokéflu". It was the 25th biggest film domestically that year, making more than films like The Talented Mr. Ripley, Fight Club, Deep Blue Sea, and Fantasia 2000, just to name a few. To this day it is still the highest-grossing anime movie in America, the fifth highest-grossing film based on an animated TV show, and the sixth highest-grossing film based on a video game, nearly 20 years after it was released.
Pokémon: The Movie 2000 was released a mere eight months after The First Movie, and while not reaching the heights of its predecessor, it still had a pretty solid performance, debuting at #3 its weekend with $19 million and grossing a total of $43 million, becoming the 59th biggest film of the year.
Pokémon 3: The Movie is where things started to go a bit wrong. Released nine months after 2000, it debuted at #4 with $8 million, and ended up grossing only $17 million, all the way down at #107 for the year. Not surprisingly, this would be the last Pokémon film distributed by Warner Bros. until Detective Pikachu almost 20 years later.
The final two films were complete disasters. Pokémon 4ever, released a year and a half after 3, made only $1.7 million, debuting at #18 with $717,061. Then Pokémon Heroes, released seven months after 4ever, grossed a pathetic $746,381, coming in at #20 in its opening weekend with a mere $260,372. After that every Pokémon movie was released direct to video in America.
In less than 4 years, the Pokémon series went from being an unstoppable juggernaut to an afterthought. Has there ever been a series that started off so huge and then died faster than that?
