That's a cool new theme by Rica, we haven't really had a "dark" sounding theme like that since Spurt back in Advanced Generation.

So while reading Bulbapedia I saw that blatant ad. It's for a mobile game called Battle Camp.

I figure it's old news but eh I wanted to post it anyway. And to celebrate getting flawless 5IV Latias, I think I'll get Latias and Latios pokepetit plush key chains.

Tonight I'm gonna preload SMD. I decided to get it in Japanese after all because I know damn fucking well that waiting for the English release would just wind up in me spoiling myself heavily. Also it would cost about the same either way if I go the digital route because lolexchangerates

So I'm gonna preload and then take care of things tonight so I can be a total bum tomorrow.

Oh cool, I really like those two themes too. Thanks for telling me about that!

Also it seems I'll need to get a Japanese Gen III game to work with my Japanese XD, assuming my cable isn't just screwed up (but it doesn't seem to be), because I want my Follow Me Boober goddammit. Are Japanese fakes as widespread as English fakes? Or can I just get a used Japanese Emerald off of a seller on Amazon with 98% - 100% feedback and be good?

If you're buying from a seller in Japan it should be fine.

I could also help you out too, maybe.

It would be interesting to see how they handle Olympia in the animé as she barely had any personality in the game.

Any word on if these themes will come to NA. I really like the super mystery dungeon ones (of course what music plays is important).

Would be cool if she helps jumpstarts the whole & Z series since her gym battle is the last episode of the current season.

That would be 100% more things than she ever done in the game

Less "hard game" and more "that one boss". It's not a quest you can just ignore until later on because if you don't do it you can't get more quests. I tried to ignore it by advancing the story via vanilla dungeon runs, which worked, but I couldn't get more quests so I eventually just bruteforced it with all those reviver seeds.

But once you get past it you'll get lots of quests that are 100x easier.

EDIT: Here's the task given in that quest, to give you guys an idea: Defeat a Salamence that OHKOs everything.

I must have used over 100 reviver seeds by now, and they're getting rarer and rarer

To anyone playing it, does Super Mystery Dungeon allow you to do multiple quests at once if they are in the same location like in the DS games? I dislicked that they took it away in Gates to Infinity.

Oh cool. Certain trios of Pokemon get a 3x exp bonus. Not sure if you'll have to experiment but I can confirm it does tell you this when you get your first trio. My first trio is Cherrim, Azurill, and Axew. EDIT: Also this trio gets its own team slot. Let's see what happens! EDIT2: Seems to be more of a "Team of the day" sort of thing, though it's not actually called that.

Was this in Gates? Never played that one.

What's the verdict on the new recruitment system?

I think it actually sort of sounds neat---yeah, a bit less free perhaps, but having specific requirement to recruit everyone gives it sort of a Suikoden feel or something. Do most of the Pokemon you recruit have little stories behind why they join you?

Yeah that's fine, it beats my option because Amazon takes care of their shipping. It doesn't for mine.

As long as the seller and the item is based in Japan you're fine when it comes with used carts. Not trying to discriminate but too many bootlegs of carts. And I'm not just talking about online, ebgamestop sold me a bootleg used Pokemon Pearl, which they were nice enough to exchange for a real one.

For a few mons, yes. Normally, though, you just select a quest with no real context from a menu and it ends like this:

"Oh, thanks for finding my lost shit!" CONNECTED
"Thanks for escorting me to my friend!" CONNECTED
"I give up! I give up! I'm sorry. Let's be friends!" CONNECTED
Talk to random mon in dungeon -> they heal you without saying anything -> CONNECTED
"I'm sorry for OHKOing you 8 times!" CONNECTED
RANK UP! CONNECTED to some mons, many of which you've never met
"This mon you just connected with introduced you to another mon." CONNECTED
Found random mon in cafe and mashed A. CONNECTED

For the most part it works fine, but the difficulty balancing is out of whack. That one where I got OHKOed 8 times? That was a 1-star mission that's also needed to do more quests. That was like my 7th attempt by the way. I was so happy to have finally beaten it. There are other quests that are "1 star my ass" too, along with "3 stars? That was really easy..."

Throw in a few of the mons you get being over triple your current level and you have some questionable design decisions. Overall I like this more than the old mission and recruiting systems but oh my god, that one quest will scar me for life...
