That's frustrating. Years ago, I didn't know you could do a soft reset by pressing L + R + Start + Select simultaneously. I was playing Crystal, and somehow managed to push that button combo. I hadn't saved in half an hour or so, and had to go back and redo a bunch of things. Thankfully it wasn't anything major. Imagine if it had happened after finding a shiny or something. ._.'

That sounds equally frustrating!

I was bored one evening and found a YouTube series by False Swipe Gaming about "How good was [insert Pokemon here] ACTUALLY?". Covered popular pokemon and how their stats/moves/sprites changed over the games, with respect to competitive play. Poor Typhlosion, taking his flames away and never really improving his movepool. This fan-made Mega Evolution of him is so awesome as well.

I think the Pokemon have been taken too far -- everything has spiraled into an uncomfortable swirl of insanity (but not the kind of insanity I like :roll:)!
What I mean is, okay, Pikachu was cute. Squirtle was cute. Bulbasaur was cute. All the originals are reasonable and cute.
So what are these new overly-powerful rainbow demon things? These aren't Pokemon. The games have turned into chaos and the movies and shows coming out are even weirder. I don't mean any offense, but... come on. They're getting to be absolutely ridiculous.
There's even a Pokemon named Cheeto, and looks just like Eevee, but is grey (should be orange :facepalm:). And in Pokemon Go, they're literally making up "new" Pokemon left and right just for the sake of money and something "new" to catch. I miss the old Pokemon :( but it kind of seems like the only original Pokemon they kept was Pikachu, you know?

I do wish they'd give Typhlosion something. Anything. All the Johto starters actually, come to think of it.

I dunno, Pokémon still seem like Pokémon to me; there are certainly things I've not been happy about with the games of late (Locking features behind a mobile app, for instance.) but as far as the Pokémon designs themselves I don't really have any complaints.

Maybe you just saw a shiny Eevee? They're pale/gray. There is no Pokémon called Cheeto, unless that's something newly announced for the expansion pass?

Ah, no, I saw it in a movie, haha. I don't really play the games. My brother plays with Pokemon cards, and occasionally mom lets us catch a Pokemon for her on Pokemon Go, but that's it. We used to watch the Pokemon stuff that Netflix was pumping into their feed, but it turned into.. well... mehh. And everything I'm seeing in trailers, ads, etc., is super crazy and weird! They look like insane Digimon now (LOL)! Not all of them, but just a lot.
What are the games about, though? They have stories, right?

Ah, I haven't followed the show/movies very closely in a long time. I enjoy revisiting the early stuff now and then, but the later stuff is so repetitive...

I don't really see that; Pokémon tend to have simpler designs, and usually more round shapes, whereas Digimon tend to be a bit busier, a little more angular. But then I've been playing/watching both for a very long time and they're pretty distinct to me. x'D

The main series of games all have basically the same premise; you play a young person setting out as a Pokémon Trainer, and have the goal of becoming the strongest in the region, as well as catching Pokémon in order to complete the Pokédex. Usually there are villains that get in your way, and often legendary Pokémon get involved. The stories aren't really blow you away amazing; some of them are pretty good, but the games are more about catching/raising your Pokémon team. You can also battle online with other players, which is quite a bit of fun, and a lot more accessible in Sword/Shield since it's fairly easy to max stats and whatnot compared to past games.
