    Juuust a quick question: how many TM's are there? The highest number learned by anything, according to the wiki, is 144 (Serene Wind). However, the Department Store sells TM146 (Avalanche). But Avalanche is currently listed as 135 on the wiki.

    Also, do wild pokémon know all level-up moves up to their current level, or only the most recent X of them?

    I was all confused for a second because I was like, "Wait, I thought you graduated a long time ago..." but then I realized it was the actual ceremony and stuff. Cool! Sounds like a lot of fun stuff.

    I generally don't like super-bright colors on dark backgrounds either, but I'm willing to make an exception for ridiculous electric greens. I was about to say that it seems like you have an overabundance of dark skins vs light skins, but then I looked again and oops it's just that I don't like any of the light ones much. >> So yeah. Ambalchi Temple it is!

    Okay, great, thanks! A moratorium on shiny starters I can sort of understand, because generally you want people to start on fairly equal footing, whereas if you give out shiny starters suddenly some people become persons of interest basically immediately because they happened to get this crazy-rare thing out of blind luck.

    Yeah, I saw your little plug for the bobbit worm on the Ideadex. Definitely not as pretty as the mantis shrimp, but somehow I missed the fact that they can grow up to like 3 meters. Good Christ that is terrifying. Frikkin' ocean; no wonder we up and left all those years ago.

    Ah, yeah, Memorial Day screws everything up. I hope you have a good time celebrating it however you're planning to, though!

    Yeah, I was using the default theme. I didn't realize there were more, but I guess from now on I'll be using Ambalchi Temple because I love acid green way too much.

    Oh well. I'm happy they're around, anyway, whether or not there's anything special going on with them. The gems in particular.

    A couple little mechanics questions... For the purposes of damage calculation, is everything assumed to have perfect IV's and no EV's and a neutral nature, or some other stat combination? Can you find shiny wilds? At the usual rate? Can starters be shiny?

    Also, totally went to the aquarium yesterday, and they had a pair of mantis shrimp! It was wild.

    Eeee so excite. Also an example of why I would have a lot of trouble co-administrating with people; I hate waiting for other people to do things, heh.

    So would this job be, like, starting immediately? I'm just curious, since I'm used to applying for things and having them start a month+ after I did any sort of application or interview involved, and I don't really know what's normal out there in the great wide real world. Anyway good luck, hope you get it!

    Man, Honest Connor is shaping up to be such an entertaining guy already; I can't wait to actually see him in action.

    Also, something COMPLETELY unrelated: you might want to change the default highlight color on the board to something other than white. Right now if you search you end up with your search terms getting spoiler-tagged in the results list, which is kind of annoying.

    Oh, and are the plates going to be plot-relevant somehow? Or the gems? They seem to pop up as prizes quite a bit, which I find pretty interesting. I figure there's maybe a -5% chance of my getting any kind of useful answer on this, but might as well ask anyway, I suppose.

    Yup, right after posting that I went and saw that in fact sky attack gets tutored onto pretty much ALL THE THINGS, although a cursory glance suggests that yes, osgrave is probably the best of those. I honestly doubt it's particularly OP, though I'm certainly going to try it out a bit. Moves that look like they're pretty terrible but conceptually could be totally cool or game-breaking draw people like me like moths to a flame, in any case. (Some day, wonder room. Some day...) I might be the only person to mess with it, but there will be at least one person!

    I had a feeling that large-scale destruction probably wasn't in the works here, but how could I live with myself if I didn't at least try? I'm sure I'll come up with some way to make everyone's lives more difficult nonetheless, anyhoot.

    Hmm, interesting. One way or another I definitely look forward to seeing what you come up with... soon? :D?

    But does Honest Connor really unironically call himself that because oh my god most hilarious NPC.

    Haha, well, at least he's honest about it. In general one can tend to look at the new stuff and pick out the things that you had a part in designing, and the things you... didn't. *cough* But yeah, you're definitely right that it's not anything worth fighting about. (The fact that it's universal, though, yeah. I'll need to look over the actual move list again sometime, but I feel that it might be kind of ridiculously powerful? "Hello I am sky attack x5 have a good day." But I don't know if anything learns sky attack atm.)

    Oh I totally ran the analysis and I will take those wussy dinosaurs you have no idea. They will quake before my adorable baby gryphon and its unevolved friends. It'll force me onto a somewhat suboptimal journey path to hit that gym first, but no backing down from a challenge. I like to play my games on XTREME mode anyway; I can afford not to be a munchkin for a little while.

    Irredeemable chaos is good! The whole point of RP is to have other people totally throw wrenches into what you were trying to do. I welcome all of the chaotic nonsense you can possibly cause! (On a semi-related note, I am disappoint that you inadvertently nerfed my original plan, which was to burn my birthday promo for a caslot, full-speed-ahead to Dia City, request a trainer battle, and then say, "Now... you shall metronome. >D" Now I don't know what to use my promo on. >>)

    Oh, interesting. Somebody you came up with for another story as well, or just a pure RP-character idea? I don't think I've heard of him before.

    Haha, I never even came close to finishing Wind Waker. I think in my case a large part of the issue is that I, apparently unlike every other gamer, actually liked the huge overworld and having to sail places all the time. I pretty routinely went, "Screw the storyline, I want to sail around for four hours grabbing treasure and running around tiny atolls!" and then yeah that never got done. I watched most of my brother's playthrough, though.

    Ahaha, yeah, I imagine everything about TM/HM list management is terrible. I think showcasing the new TM's is definitely cool, anyway; I would probably preferentially pick gyms that gave out new ones over gyms that gave out old ones just for novelty's sake, if there was a mixture. I imagine it must be a little frustrating to have to work other people's sometimes... creative... stuff into your region now and again, though. (Whoever decided that "neutral gin" was a good name for anything, just, what. I don't even.)

    Oh don't you even tempt me I will totally zoom over to that seventh gym immediately and kick some deathosaurus butt if you make it sound like a challenge.

    Mmm, yeah, I definitely like burungin the best out of the fire-types and bossorna best out of the grass-types, and bossorna could really use some love... I could see all three of them on my team, except for the part where that would never happen. As it is I figure whatever I end up with is bound to be "what is type balance" anyway. But whatever you decide to go with, we should definitely have our characters get together and irritate each other sometime!

    Omg is the other character you're talking about Virgil? Because that would be the most amazing thing ever, really. Even if you can't justify playing him as a main character you could always put him in as an NPC or something; I'm going to be dropping in a couple expies of my own along the way, because I haven't tortured them enough yet I guess.

    So, at an agency, is it, like, they have their own site(s) to maintain, or is it people contract with them to build/maintain external sites, and your job would be to check the integrity of the code as other people at the agency put it together?

    That's cool, I enjoy a bit of ambiguity and mystery in my regions. It makes for such delightful character guilt opportunities when they totally misjudge something and end up workin' for the bad guys or what have you. >D Overall I think NL has a nice adventure-y, slightly sinister ambiance to it. Sort of like Wind Waker.

    Ah yeah, I somehow forgot about the badge restriction on powerful TM/HM moves for a minute there, oops. Incidentally, that rule does make the normal gym the worst choice for your first badge (out of the ones that you can challenge first and that I saw) because you essentially get no TM prize from it... dunno if that was intentional or not.

    Oh, definitely spraylet. That line is bang-on for my character in terms of flavor, and I can't really see her picking anything else. The acafia line is nice for her rival, too; if only I could remember the totally amazing nickname I had picked out for the rival's starter and didn't bother to write down because I would definitely remember it and then forgot.

    What about yoooou? Have you decided what kind of character you want to play yet, or have you mostly been too busy putting stuff together to think about it yet?

    Edit: Ah, Abrin! That was the name.

    Hmm, a QA job? Does that mean you'd be checking pages to make sure they're not broken/work in different browsers/etc? I don't really know how agencies work, derp. Also booo long commute. :( But that sounds really exciting! I hope you get it.

    Hmm, interesting. I'm just curious about the whole Revivalist thing in general--it sounds so suspicious! And it would be totally awkward to help them out and then find out that oops they're actually this region's TR or whatever. On the other hand, delicious rewards. Curse you for pitting my poor little moral sensibilities against my ridiculous avarice! And oh noooo, no surf? Getting surf was definitely #1 on my list of things to do after starting off, but I guess I'll just have to loosen my deathgrip on my fake cash and ferry around for a little longer, then.

    Heh, I'm still pleasantly surprised by things, just not always at the time that people might hope for. :P Buut yeah, if I'm every coming across as creepy or something, just let me know; I'm just fooling around, but I wouldn't want you to be uncomfortable with it...

    Oh yeah? What's this Actual Job all about, eh? Is it the one you were talking about trying to get earlier, or is it something different?

    Well, the software hurdles never stop, really. :P I'm mostly done with that particular batch of nasty, but I have a new wave of things to install that won't. C'est la vie.

    Alllso, just wondering, is there eventually to be a flavor-dump on what exactly is up with the Revivalists and stuff? I kept seeing that Terg guy mentioned and wondering if he was ever going to get profiled somewhere. (Though he might have been, and I simply didn't get there before... you know. >|) And I've gotta say, my character is totes going to be best buds with the proprietor of Fabulous Items 'R' Us because there's nothing about that shop that isn't hilarious.
