brock’s pirouette tho
I just found a shiny female Nidoran (literally my first shiny in 15 years of playing) and just realized I don’t have any pokeballs.
Noivern VS Charizard
oMIGOSH GUYS LOOK HOW MAJESTIC CHARIZARD LOOKS
this is the game I have dreamed of since I was 9 years old
I have come to the conclusion that I will reblog just about any gif that has Charizard in it.
Anonymous asked: What would you consider to be your greatest childhood achievement/personal victory? (You are a capital chap, sir!)
Thank you for the compliment! Salutations and well wishes to you, Mr./Ms. Grey Silhouette!
But my greatest childhood achievement/personal victory might possibly be something that happened when I was nine years old. Pokémon cards were all the rage back then, and one of my best friends back then (who still is one of my best friends) bought two booster packs and gave one to me. It was my very first pack of Pokémon cards I ever opened, and I received a holographic Charizard. I was dumbfounded. It was the rarest Pokémon card in print at the time, and I got it on my first try. Not to mention Charizard has been my favorite Pokémon since I first played red version.
Lame? Possibly. But it was definitely a highlight of my childhood.
I just browsed the nerd tag on Tumblr for about two minutes and I got severely annoyed. Apparently, most people think they can slap on a pair of non-perscription, fake ray bans and that automatically makes them a “nerd”.
I get that the whole “nerdiness” thing is sorta in right now, but as an actual nerd who had to go through a fair amount of ridicule during my elementary/middle school years because of my nerdiness, all these newfound “nerds” piss me off. A lot of these idiots would have been the people making fun of me for wearing an Ash Ketchum hat out in public. Most of these punks can’t tell you why Thunderbolt would be an absolutely useless attack against a Rhydon. They probably couldn’t even tell you something as simple as when The Lord of the Rings takes place (it’s near the end of the Third Age of Middle Earth, by the way), or how many incarnations of The Doctor there have been. Would they know the difference between a hinkypunk and a tauntaun? Probably not. Could they tell you anything about The Joker that was not in Nolan’s Batman: The Dark Knight? Again, nope.
In a way, it’s cool that nerds are kinda “in” now, but it’s unfortunate that douche bags and posers are capitalizing on our turf. If you wanna join the ranks of nerd-dom, then great! I love welcoming people into the marvelous worlds that The Doctor can show people, or talking to them about their first experience with the Hogwarts express.
But you can’t just call yourself a nerd if you put on a pair of glasses. That’s stupid. If I called myself a jock whenever I picked up a football, people would realize as soon as I threw it that I was certainly a faker.
Phew. Rant over.
