Today's "What The Fuck"

Ladies and gentlemen, the most inaccurate briefing in the world.

So Spring Cave is close to a hot spring, so there should be lots of Fire-types. Makes sense, right? Now let's see what's actually in Spring Cave. Cubone, Baltoy, Snubbull, Meditite, Trapinch, Haunter, Wormadam-G, Aron, Cacnea, Onix, Beldum, Paras, Zubat, Cranidos and Ekans. Not a single Fire-type in there. Sure, you run into two Slugmas, but those are only in a cutscene. For the rest, if anything Sunflora has a big advantage with all the Rock- and Ground-types around. (Which does not prevent this episode from being really, REALLY hard, for the record. The few Poison-types there are can potentially OHKO you unless you're at full health, and Sunflora is just so weak.)

Chatot needs to lose his job over this. I'm paying so much money to the guild, they SHOULD be able to afford a better head of intelligence, right? Not that Wigglytuff is any better. Dungeon's (allegedly) full of Fire- and Poison-types? LET'S SEND IN A GRASS-TYPE! I don't care how competent Sunflora is, that's some Ash Ketchum-level shit right there. It's only a marginally better idea than President Donald Trump, and that scares me.

  1. Actually, nothing could be worse than Donald Trump as U.S. president, but point taken.

    1. That's what I meant. Sending Sunflora in there given their (admittedly false) intel is still a slightly better idea.

  2. Don't remind me about Donald Trump. I actually live in the USA so have to deal with the real possibility that he is a front-runner for the highest office. I dealt with the embarrassment of the Dubya years, I don't want another 4-8 of being the world's laughing stock.

    1. He stands no chance against Hillary Clinton, and the bigwigs of the Republican party know that. I seriously doubt he has any appeal beyond the inbred racist Mississippi redneck whackjobs, so independent voters are likely to vote for Clinton by default - or just not vote at all.

      The more likely possibility is that as the other Republican candidates start to drop out, Trump will fail to draw many of their supporters, and the other frontrunners will catch up to him.

    2. I used to agree strongly with that statement but these days you never know. The people that should be front-running (the establishment guys like Jeb Bush) are barely treading water. Even if it's not Trump, it'll be some other idiot. As for Clinton, never underestimate her ability to shoot herself int he foot. I'd still bet on her to win but it's not a sure bet, not with the lunatics running this asylum.

    3. I dunno, Trump strikes me as an all-or-nothing kind of guy, right down to his reputation. I can't imagine him being the second, third or even fourth choice of too many people. He's just such a stark contrast from everybody else.

      (Meanwhile, a third party is leading the polls in Canada. You guys sure you don't want to try this out?)

    4. It's funny, because I turn 18 next and will be able to vote. I don't know if I'll be able to pick somebody. Seriously, everybody sucks.

    5. See, now, this is the first election that I'm able to vote in, but I don't give a shit, I'm still gonna be voting for nobody come Election Day.

    6. This is my opinion, I don't support Trump. However, there is no way I'm going to survive 1-2 terms with Hilary Clinton. Nope. I'm pretty torn. Naturally, you would want someone to completely fix the mess that Obama has left us with. Trump despises Obama-care, but I don't find him to fit the job without creating even more. The only other option are the other republican candidates, but who knows if they can stack up enough votes to take Trump down. I don't know your personal view on politics, but I hate Hilary and the way she touches everything. You simply can't live with her being president and if she does...I'm going to consider being your next door neighbor point blank.

    7. Oh, don't get me wrong, I don't like Hillary Clinton at all, and I'd vote for a lot of people over her if I were American. Donald Trump, though? I'd go out of my way to ballot stuff for Clinton.

    8. A couple questions that's come to mind is, what do Canadians want? What do you guys want for America? And do illegal immigrants come to Canada? If they would come into your country, and commit many crimes, would you guys do what Trump would do?

    9. Fundamentally, for all the times we get called "America Jr.", we're nothing alike. Just like there's absolutely nothing like the Canadian left in America, there's barely anything like the American right in Canada (at least outside of Alberta). So mentalities are completely and utterly different. As for illegal immigrants, they're basically a non-factor. We do have a lot of legal immigrants, though, but most of the so-called "problems" we have with them stems from linguistic issues in Quebec. That's right, legal immigrants not speaking French is as bad as it gets most of the time. But yeah, we seem to be a lot more lenient in welcoming and accomodating immigrants than you are, and we're honestly no worse off (look at Vancouver, where Canadians of European descent are a MINORITY). I myself work with an immigrant from Ivory Coast, and I have absolutely no complaints to make about her.

    10. While I don't support Trump, it's certianly intresting how angry he makes the republican party, quite especially during the debates where you need to play off being more conservative than usual, no one could top trump on the area of immigration so they were a bit dumbfoudned.
      But I wouldn't vote for him, or anyone, abstaining is what (would) I do because it's a form of protest against crappy candidate after crappy candidate
