Thank you.

—cringes as he remembers that he never got Chimecho figured out—

I do have some ideas about Cryogonal, though. It's a weird, clearly alive, but also clearly not flesh and blood. This might actually be easier to make.

Hello. Long time no see. A couple updates.

I did some minor editing of the Johto Legendary Beasts, mostly clarification. Among them was that I derped on the Burned Tower legend and named the wrong Ecruteak tower (Brass burned, Tin is still standing. Derp.). This mix-up also happened on the Ho-oh article, and I fixed it there as unintrusively as possible.

I see we had an...enthusiastic editor walk in on several articles about this time last year. While most of his stuff was moderately to extremely cringeworthy, I felt I could work in his idea for Entei in a slightly different way that would actually fit decently with the Brass Tower myth, thanks to some very convenient encounter tables in the area.

Thank you to REV6Pilot for catching the previous said editor's flagrant yiffbait on the Ralts article. I was trying to keep it as tactfully far from that as possible (and someone else inserted another bit leaning in that direction for no particular reason), but in hindsight the Trainer's Notes looks a little waifuish too. I'll see if I can change that a bit to stress that its familial tendencies are actually a bad thing for trainers and can undermine team dynamics.

Also, looking back, I abused emdashes and had no damned idea how to use semicolons. Ouch.

Long time no see Pykrete, welcome back.

Yeah, we've had problems with people coming in and editing stuff without permission.

Pykrete: Hello, sah. Good to see you about.

Ralts: May I suggest something to the degree of weighing costs and benefits?

Also, we possess no entry on Regicite, correct?

Alright, changed the Trainer's Notes. Tell me if it hits a good multifaceted angle or still seems like an awful fanfic waiting to happen.

Good, that's what I was going for. Employing a highly intelligent psychic empath used to nuclear family on a team of otherwise half-sapient pack animals is going to result in either a strong lieutenant of a tightly knit anime-style team, or a really awkward disaster of the sort an amateur or even hobbyist trainer wouldn't be expecting — but putting that in a way that doesn't fall into the...erm...most frequent connotation is troublesome.

[down] I wasn't going for "flexible enough" for that, really. I wanted it to just stay away from it altogether just bugs me

It's flexible enough that either side of the issue can draw their own conclusions.

Hmm... Would it be possible to issue orders via Gardevoir, or other highly intelligent telepathic Psis? Also, have we defined "levels/types" of telepathy?

I know I did an article on the Pressure ability that posited that it resulted from a semi-passive psychic field, but beyond that I have no idea.

 7392 Pykrete, Mon, 15th Apr '13 7:52:58 PM from Viridian Forest

I'd imagine telepathic orders could happen via any psychic middlemon (I wrote Entei using Slowpoke as proxies to evade detection), or even directly from a trainer with a certain amount of psychic capacity. Whether this is legal in a circuit battle or is considered interference is another question, but hey. Not that you could stop a psychic trainer, but they'd go after having an Alakazam sitting on the sidelines staring at the combatants with spoons in his ears or something.

As far as "levels" of psychicness, a telepathic suggestion is probably less difficult than melting faces, though coherent sentences probably take high thought processes. Then again, most Psychic-types aren't really lacking in that.

MARRRRKKKK NUTTTTTT
The levels I was thinking of is psychic communication. The weaker psychics can only really transmit feelings and metaphysical concepts at the most. The middle ground and ghosts can send images mostly from their past if it's a ghost in particular. The stronger psychics like Gardevoir however can do a full-on communication with words.

Alright, new question: Who's in charge here now, if not Tangent?

Tangent's technically still in charge, but he's busier nowadays, so it's mainly me handling the day to day stuff.

He was last seen on the 13th of October last year, I'm afraid. But I've PM'd him.

Hi.

I'll check out the Ralts article if I have time to see if I can help you guys out. Also, I'm considering dibbing on Keldeo but I'm not very experienced so I'm also kinda afraid of what could happen when I actually make the article. If anyone would like to help me, that'd be great.note 
If you want to see my random ramblings, this is probably the best thing to click.

Guess Who...?
Hey, so yesterday was the last class of that one class. We finished up the last of the final projects on the final day (I still need to ask for the written components so that I can give a thorough review, but was impressed with the amount of work that went into the other parts) had a chance to dig into some Poke-themed sweets (nutella poffins!) and got back student surveys about what they thought about the course. In general, they seemed to really get a kick out of the class, though unfortunately thought that the science lectures were presented a bit too dryly. But hey, that's what future semesters are for! grin

At first, we were kinda apprehensive about the next semester... Seeing as 3 out of 5 of us either were graduating or not teaching next semester. We managed to fill 2 of those vacant slots thanks to some classmates from my semester that worked out their schedule to pursue their inner Pokedork calling... But we felt that was still a little bare-bones... So we put out a blurb to the current semester's students to see who'd be interested in picking up the mantle...

We also got a lot of applicants. As in, a lot of applicants (if my memory serves me right, it's 5 or 6 applicants). So much that we're actually thinking of expanding the course into 2 sections next semester. It's a really far cry from last semester where I and one other person who ultimately backed out to join the team this semester, and makes me excited to see what our class is going to look like this fall.

Oh yeah, I also got a sweet thank-you card with a papercraft Beheeyem on it. One of the perks that comes of teaching a class that you and your students are nuts about, I guess. As for me... Well... I was the only prof to make it to all of the classes this semester (mostly due to dumb luck with midterm scheduling, but still), so you can probably guess what I'm going to be doing for the last 2 semesters of college if I can help it. tongue
