    I know! It's so well done. Best of luck! Wow, that's a huge scarecrow. Looks awesome and will take up a lot of space on your lawn. I know .

    Great to hear! Same for me. I think within the battling Pokemon community it's pretty well known - it's part of Pokemon Smogon which is pretty much *the* place to discuss competitive battling and strategy. The Smogon forum is also a great resource for build ideas and team comps. Toxic spikes is so stupid . There are also some really awful combinations that were so overpowered they had to be banned out of OU. One of my favourites was building a Klefki with the Prankster ability, and Swagger, Thunder Wave, Reflect, and Substitute. Swagger increases your opponent's attack and confuses it, so you basically just keep swaggering your enemy is so strong it just knocks itself thanks to being confused! And between substitute and reflect, your already tanky Klefki takes almost no damage in the small chance (thanks to the thunder wave) that the opponent even gets a hit off. Oh and the Prankster ability means your status-inflicting moves have priority, so you'll pretty much always be able to get off your combo first. There's also baton pass teams where basically most of your pokemon are tanky, equipped with baton pass, and have attack/special attack/speed-boosting abilities. You keep passing your boosted stats off to the next pokemon with baton pass, until your main attacking pokemon gets like 4 times the attack power and just one-shots the entire enemy team.... I'll stop rambling now . Yeah I remember when I would play Gen VI a lot there were some teams I just had absolutely no answer for. Sometimes it's not even about your team, but just being able to predict what your opponent's next move is and making the appropriate answer, always thinking a few moves ahead... Pokemon strategy is surprisingly deep! I'll keep an eye out for you then, who knows, maybe we'll battle soon!

    That sounds like a lot of fun! I've never done it myself. I'm sure you'll learn a lot and be able to keep upping yourself every year. Someday you should try to do this:

    It's so boring around Halloween here, that's for sure . That's definitely one of the best . I think after Steve Carrell left the show the pranks have become more of the staple of the show.

    Awesome! Exactly, you can really try any pokemon team you want without having to grind it out, and in doing so you actually learn the game really well. Showdown uses a tier system to try and make things fair, so really overpowered pokemon are placed in the "Uber" tier and the rest of the popular/good but more balanced pokemon are in "OverUsed (OU)" tier (the most popular tier to play). There are other lower tiers for the less popular/good pokemon. If I remember correctly Snorlax is considered the king of OU in gens 2 and 3, maybe more. Most legendaries are usually in Uber (e.g. Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Deoxys). You're probably playing in the OU tier so that's why you've only run into Zapdos. Wobbuffet and Wynaut are the only non-legendaries in Uber, because their ability Shadow Tag combined with their amazing tanking and countering power. You can find the OU gen 3 list here: http://www.smogon.com/dex/rs/formats/ou/. There's also build recommendations on there if you're interested! Well, my username on there is XxCasxX so if you search me up and I'm online, certainly I'm ready to battle! I made a couple gen 3 teams a few days ago though I have no idea if they work well or not. I haven't gotten that far into Doom yet but I think I can see that already .

    I'll keep that in mind. I had forgotten about it too until I saw reviews come out for it . I know! October is almost here! I think I'm going to dress up at school on Halloween since it's a Monday. My school has no Halloween spirit so I'll be one of the only people dressed up but I don't care . I made a Squirrel Girl costume for a comicon earlier this year so I'll probably use that. Maybe I'll save the Exorcist and catching up on American story for later in October. I'm really enjoying the Office! Some of the characters have changed a bit, but for the most part are the same. Jim and Dwight's pranking relationship is one of my favourite things about the show. But I don't want to experience that movie again ...

    So far I like the additions, but we'll see how it actually works in game. I wonder how the feeding and caring of pokemon will work. Pokemon showdown is a lot of fun! I initially played it to test out different teams and EV's before spending the time in game to catch and train all the pokemon to make my perfect team, but I ended up getting stuck there . Thanks to showdown I now know that Wobbuffet is actually one of the most overpowered pokemon out there... and I always thought he was one of the weakest. That would be fun! I better start putting a team together. That's too bad about Resident Evil. I got Doom 3 finally, and I'm happy to say it's more like original Doom. Not as much psychological horror/dark rooms as Doom 3 but awesome overall.

    I thought you were talking about Black Mirror but now that you mention it Atlanta makes a lot more sense . I still have yet to watch it! Been stuck with school work

    Darn, I'm sorry to hear that. Wish you enjoyed it more. I wonder what I'll think about it now. Have you watched the Exorcist? I heard decent reviews of the show, but like usual have yet to watch it. I still need to see the new American Horror Story episodes too. Aaaand I'm almost done the Office, in season 8 now, so I want to get that done soon. I looked up the differences between the Ultimate and theatrical cuts, and for sure some of the scenes they added were absolutely necessary for the film making sense. On the other hand many of the smaller additions only made an already super long film even longer. I can't directly compare it to the theatrical version since I didn't see that one, but it looks like the Ultimate Cut was better. Still not good though... I can't imagine how bad the theatrical version must have seemed now that I think of it

    I can see it end up happening. There's also Sun and Moon coming in a few months! That's fair. I only know of the newer abilities and pokemon because I played the newer games - I don't stay updated outside of that. Before playing X I really only knew up to 3rd gen too. Have you ever played Pokemon Showdown? You can play online against people and fully customize your team (pokemon with the right ev's, iv's, items, abilities, etc) and also fight using only certain gens. I usually don't have the patience to get that sorted out in game, so it's kind of fun to mess around with it. I'm pretty bad though

    It is!

    I've gotta find someone to go see it with me! Too bad I'm the only one of my friends that likes horror movies . I got my friend to watch the Blair Witch Project with me (after much convincing) and he had to turn it off halfway through. I saw the Director's Cut of BvS and people said it was better than the theatrical release, but that's not saying much. Ahh yes . Yeah no need to dig it up. I haven't seen it past that first time yet.

    I don't have many classes this term (thank goodness) so it's going alright so far. Thanks! I'll try .

    Yeah! Did they say they were going to release more generations? If so, it's just more pokemon for people to go out and risk their lives to get . Yeah I've heard a lot of stories of people like that. And about people who quit their jobs to collect them all. I like the idea of getting people out and walking around but it's also so risky with people really not paying attention to their surroundings. I would probably play X or Y over Omega Ruby if you get a 3DS, mainly because it's a new storyline !and it's actually pretty good!) Oh yeah? You wanna bet? (just kidding, you'd definitely beat me. I'm not that good. Or am I... ) Are you the kind of person that would get the perfect EV's and IV's for your pokemon?

    ME TOO

    That's interesting. I think I would like that more than the last season. Tsk tsk, another show on your list!

    To be fair this really hasn't been the best year for movies. A lot of disappointments I think. Have you not seen BVS yet? What did you think of Man of Steel?

    Yes! I'm glad you haven't been spoiled. It's definitely part of some emotional moments and I'm glad I didn't know about it before seeing the movie. I'm glad to hear school seems to be going well! Laid back teachers are great. I've got one really laid back teacher, and this one really, really excitable, passionate Russian prof for a physics class that already feels pretty overwhelming. Ahh well. I'll also be a teaching assistant for some low level physics so that should be fun. My brother was telling me about an astronomy course he's in for arts students, and they had to answer a multiple choice question about how many stars were in the Solar System. Most people answered "an uncountable amount" . Oh and apparently the Earth takes 24 hours to go around the Sun, not a year.

    I'm in the exact same situation. I played Pokemon Go for a few days and then got bored and uninstalled it. If it didn't have Pokemon aspect it wouldn't be nearly as popular, which kind of tells you how good a game it really is. There isn't any interesting combat or pokemon training, leveling, and evolving aspect either. Nice! I've been going back to play through Omega Ruby.

    ... Thank you?

    It's been so long since Black Mirror I had forgotten about it! And it looks like there will be 6 episodes next season!

    Yeah, it'll be delicate bringing her back, and they can't drag it out too long because I think it's pretty clear she'll be back. That's true about the investigation. Maybe they found some way to hide them. Either way I'm interested in what their fates were. That's an interesting theory about Will! I'd definitely like to see more of the Upside Down than we did in season 1. I'm betting the Sheriff will turn on his government deal at some point.

    Your list must be getting really long now!

    Oh it was very cheesy . Bones got a lot more screen time. They focused a lot more on emphasizing the relationships between Kirk, Spock, and Bones like in the original series, and I really appreciated they did that! They also did something for Leonard during the movie that I won't spoil.

    How has school been so far? You're now about a week into classes, right? My first day back is tomorrow.

    Definitely wouldn't mind him replacing her. Thanks . The CW Superman definitely looks awkward in that photo, but I think it was just a weird photo. He looks alright in set photos. Yeah I'm not sure if I'll be getting to Legends anytime soon. Ahh well, there are lots of great shows to look forward to this fall and I'm eager to have them back.

    Stranger Things definitely got better in the second half. I still wouldn't say I loved it in the end but it was enough for me to want to watch the second season.

    Dustin was the most likeable of the trio for sure. He was probably my favourite character as well. I'm sure we'll see Eleven again considering the sheriff left the Eggo waffles in the forest. I wonder what the government agency has in store for later because of their deal. And what about other psychic kids, like assumedly numbers One to Ten? Well, Barb was not much more than monster fodder. I wonder why Will isn't telling anyone about throwing up those worms (and why the hospital didn't pick it up when they would have checked him over, though that's probably more of a nit-pick than something to do with the plot). Is it just that he doesn't want to worry his mom, or is the worm taking over his mind in some way?

    That's awesome!

    I finally got around to watching the new Star Trek movie (my brother wanted to me to wait to watch it together). Went with my dad too and we all loved it. It was messy at parts, and like the other two movies, most of it was non-stop action with some kind of ridiculous solutions to problems - but it had a some really nostalgic and emotional moments that made it a fitting 50th anniversary movie. I agree with a lot of reviewers in that it felt more like classic Trek than the other movies. It focused on the characters and their relationships more, and them working together after being abandoned on an alien world. It was sad seeing Anton Yelchin on screen though, and the movie was dedicated to him as well as in memory of Leonard Nimoy.

    Heh, Curtis is super useful; one episode he even filled in for her and it was one of the more tolerable ones to watch! I know, you'd think the League would be able to hold their own pretty well - and Dahrk himself was supposed to be one of the greatest and more feared fighters which makes it even worse. Yep, totally swept under a rug! She's shaken for a few minutes, goes through a 20-second pep talk and then is completely back to normal after killing all those people. And that's pretty much the last it gets mentioned. Oh definitely I'll be watching season 5. Not because I think it'll get better - more to see just how bad it can get . I don't have high hopes, and this pretty much sums it up (what's next for each DC show on the CW):

    I never started watching Legends of Tomorrow and I heard it was pretty meh. I think Captain Cold is a great character though, so I'd even watch it just for him.

    Ahh I see what you're saying, that's a good point! I wonder how many the show has already angered. I'd imagine quite a few already.

    I see what you mean. I can't see AMC being able to get away with a lot of that. I can see why the comic is considered especially controversial!

    Yeah, I did stick with it to the end to see it through. I think the second half of the season is stronger than the first half since they move closer to the actual mystery/sci-fi and everyone is eventually on the same page (finally). ... I had no idea Barb had a fanbase. I looked it up just now and wow, she's really become a sensation... I don't understand it at all. She was pretty boring and really only served as a plot device instead of a well-developed character.

    I also heard that they did a pretty good job at least. Definitely sounds like it deserved its bad reviews!

    Very appropriate reaction.

    Yeah I liked Felicity in the first two seasons but now she's such a hypocritical never-wrong Mary Sue that has completely taken over the show - it's such a shame. Oliver never goes as close to full Green Arrow as we would hope - instead Felicity and her "hacking" always save the day. The fight choreography has really become so bad... have you seen this from the season 4 finale? You'd hope they would put in some effort but nope... it gets especially bad at 2:00. And remember that this is THE final showdown between Oliver and the big bad of all of season 4 - you'd think it would be memorable (in a good way).

    NUKES. YES . Several plot points involved nuking the whole world... at one point a whole city was nuked (Felicity diverted a nuke that was going to hit a major city to hit a smaller city instead), and she's way more devastated that her mom lied to her than the deaths of 10,000 people. The season finale was such a letdown though. Dahrk, the big bad, gets his power from deaths, and the city getting nuked gives him the power of 10,000 souls on top of the immense power he already had. In the show you see he's unstoppable, powerful, etc, but in the finale Oliver is able to channel that same kind of magic but with "hope" instead of deaths and that leads to Dahrk and Oliver just fist-fighting at the end. Really terrifying

    ... I'll stop now

    Yes! It really was . Jesse being able to send someone to Hell by just telling them to really makes me wonder what the extent of his power is. He was able to get the girl in the coma to open her eyes, but what if he'd said "be cured"? Can he tell someone "go to Jamaica" and they'll be teleported to Jamaica? Yeah I'd grown attached to Emily too and it seemed she was becoming more incorporated with the group as a good ally at least. I think the "God" scene fit really well with the rest of the show. You would think it would be a bit corny but then I think it actually works well with the humour, so I thought it was good. Huh, I should check out what Quincannon gets up to in the comics then... I'm trying to think of what he might do that was more disturbing. For me the weirdest parts were when he was listening to the cows being slaughtered over the radio...

    Right? I totally understand what you mean by underwhelmed. Again I wasn't really blown away by the show. The teenage romance, yeah, and also just the extremely stereotypical suburban family that seems to show up everywhere - brother and sister who fight and tell secrets out loud at the dinner table, over-protective and nosy mom, couldn't-care-less/listen-to-your-mother dad... it just seems so familiar. The sketchy government agency with secret experiments? Seen that a hundred times before. And so many more very familiar tropes. Agree about the "Should I stay" scene - as I might have mentioned earlier I really think that the 80's music feels forced. A lot of people have praised the soundtrack but I just thought it often doesn't fit or is overused, and it's like they have an 80's song just for the sake of it to make it more nostalgic.

    Sounds like the reviews were pretty accurate then. I might not see it then and just wait for it to be on DVD(/streaming). I was going to see it with some friends but we never got around to it because we were all so "meh" about it with the reviews. It sounds really disappointing!
