>In an exclusive IGN interview, Shigeru Miyamoto sat down to discuss Nintendo's famed Pokemon series (translated from Japanese)
>"I assure you, everyone has that one pokemon they dislike. We get a lot of fanmail, 'why did you waste time designing Luvdisc' or 'May a pox be upon the family of he who birthed Lickilicky.' We really do only pick the best ideas out of the hundred potential ideas we come up with for each game."
>"For every Pokemon spinoff game that gets made, there are fifteen that we consider before shelving. For every Pokemon Conquest, there are five Pokemon Tennises or Pokemon x Street Fighter." When asked if he was serious, he laughed and nodded his head. "Pokemon x Street Fighter was talked about for a few weeks before we discarded it. We never spoke to [Capcom] about it. The idea was giving each Street Fighter character a pokemon you assign, who uses moves alongside your attacks. So you would throw a fireball, and your Blastoise would use hydro cannon at the same time."
>"Most of the ideas are of course impossible to make happen due to differences between video game companies, but there quite a few first party-only ideas. My favorite, which never got made, was Pokemon Breeder, a Gamecube game where you'd play from the perspective of a breeder, raising other peoples' pokemon. It was scrapped because we realized early on that you'd get attached to the pokemon and parting with them was too central to the concept."
>"The most popular idea was a game directly based on the anime, more than Yellow was. It's by far the most notable anime ever to not have a video game."
>"The reason we didn't include it [3D] for so long was that we didn't think it would really add anything. Maybe we were wrong, but fancy graphics were never the point of Pokemon, and I'm confident that Pokemon X and Y would be just as good on the original Gameboy if it had the memory for so many pokemon."

You have been selected to be the gym leader of a region recently added to the Pokémon league.
>You get to choose one type to base your gym on (only former champions get to have no main type, sorry)
>you get to choose a gimmick for your gym, based on your type.
>what kind of trainers will be around your new gym?
>what will your team be? (All Pokémon on your team MUST have your selected type)
Optional: change your name to correspond with your selected type. (I.e. Brock, Bugsy, Wattson, Gardenia, Chili, etc.)
Congratulations on making it into the Pokémon league!

A new champ/volunteer will be called for and someone shall claim it. When the champ position is claimed, the members of showderp shall suggest six Pokemon.
Note: Only the first 6 are taken, and the champ/volunteer may decide if they want to use CAPs or Ubers.
This is not a showdown general, so please do not upload your replays that are not relevant to showderp to here.
Please do not suggest more than one Pokemon that cannot learn TMs.
When the champ is finished, he will call a new one, and the cycle continues.

I believe it's that time again.
We're all pissed off with this board, that's a fact, there's always one thing about this board that's annoying us in one way or another. Be it a consistent thread that never seems to go away or a maymay in the making that seems to be nothing but forced by two obnoxious brethren.
But you don't have to stay in the dark about it forever. The point of this thread is to discuss these situations, how YOU feel about them, and how others feel about them, in this way, the opinion of the subject at hand is spread around, and the board finds out that "Gee, a lot of people seem to hate [X]..."
You could just go on /q/ sure, but who's going to listen to you? You could just ignore it, but it's still there, mocking you ever second of the day autistic day that you can't see it. But if you can get past even that, more power to you.
ITT: Your favorite Pokemon + your complaints.
Go ahead, pull up a chair, you're among friends here. Tell us what's bothering you.
HARD MODE: No meta shit allowed.
