Not sure if nearly tying my Gen VI Battle Maison record while leading with a Pidgeot means Pidgeot’s underrated, Sashchomp + Articuno are amazing no matter who they’re paired with, I haven’t played hard enough in gen VI, or what.
But for now I’m taking it as evidence that 1) truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites, and 2) getting 10 extra points of base speed in the Gen V - VI transition is a much bigger deal than I realized.
62 wins. While leading with a Pidgeot. It almost feels like 100 with a normal team.

Just kidding I love its mega
Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.
To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!
“On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”
I about pissed myself laughing at this.
why do white people think having a confederate flag anywhere on your property screams anything other than “im a blatant racist and slavery was cool”
Probably because of an extraordinarily successful effort by southern intellectuals, starting virtually the minute the war was over, to whitewash the Confederate States of America, demonize the brief period of democracy in the South in the war’s aftermath and present the Confederacy as something other than a vicious slaveocracy seceding because they had lost the ability to enforce their will on the north.
Some of these people are diehard stormfronters, but I’ve seen plenty of fools on the internet who genuinely believe the “heritage not hate” propaganda. Seems like every week the history boards I browse are educating another one.
Thinking of dusting off my copy of Monster Rancher DS… but I’m not sure I want to search like mad to find a training guide only to find it dull/repetitive but for tournaments. (dunno if it is, mind you, but a lot of internet people seem to think so.) Also they made speed useless and I’m bitter.
I miss Monster Rancher 2. Wish they had improved on it (and made a game with even MORE replay value.) Heck I miss the whole series, even if I never quite fell in love with 3 and 4. Rewatching the anime has made me all sad/nostalgic - monster training.adventuring series are best when you can pick up the game afterward.
Now, Again, The Adventure Evolves
So after last year’s 14th anniversary piece, I give you it’s sequel/companion piece for the 15th. And the added news that Digimon Adventure is coming back in the spring makes it all the better.
