New favorite off-topic thread.

Oh man where do I even start. Sun or Moon? I haven't decided which to get yet! I have been checking my phone embarrassingly often to see if I've gotten the new Pokemon GO "Buddy" update... and as for which buddy I'll choose, hmm...

?

Hello there! I'm Owl and I've been into Pokémon ever since elementary school when I got my first TCG card: a Weedle. I've played at least one game within every Pokémon generation. My favorite is probably X (I love the customisation, the graphics, the plot...), but I'm looking forward to Sun/Moon as well. Team Rowlet ftw! ;D I'm getting both games too. Moon will be my Rowlet game and Sun will probably be my Litten game.

The games are my favorite part, along with Pokémon GO. I'm currently playing Blue (digitally remastered version), Pearl, and GO. I'm trying to get past generation pokémon to trade forward so I can get a national pokédex filled. I've never achieved a full pokédex before, but I've started to become more serious about pokémon in general with the pokédex, EVs, IVs, and shinies. I'm still not going to play competitively though.

I suck at favorites, but according to this "quiz" thing I took, my top favorite pokémon include Greninja, Arcanine, Leafeon, Chandelure, Umbreon, Xerneas, and Marowak as my top 7. Zekrom, Pineco, Ampharos, Gengar, Nidoqueen, Murkrow, Altaria, Meloetta, and Mismagius are also in there. I stopped at 37 favorites. Fun fact: I don't own a Meloetta and can't wait for December when I can hopefully get one for the first time!

** If you didn't already know, you can get a mythical pokémon each month this year as part of the 20th anniversary celebration. A lot you can get just from downloading a mystery gift (via internet) into your X/Y or OR/AS game. If you google it, you can find a list of what they're giving out and how!

Oh no! XD Poor Charizard. Only a dragon in Mega form. :c

Someone had to have been trolling when they submitted the new design for Exeggutor. There's no logical explanation otherwise. (But then these are the same people who turned ice cream cones into pokémon, so...)

Has anyone updated Go and used the buddy system? Who did you pick as your buddy? Have you gotten anything out of it yet?

@Shex Is the new buddy system not a big update? I thought it was a solidly big new thing. Maybe I'm too easily excited by these things though. XD

Yeah, but what does it do? I thought it was just a cosmetic update with no real function
