  1. Past hour
  2. Oh wow, One Piece is finally available on Crunchyroll in the UK (and a bunch of other European countries). I hear it's improved since the Wano arc started so might be time to start watching again.
  3. Job woes/wins

    2020 is now here. I got my contract extended another year, which I think is a necessity for them at the moment as staff numbers have gone even more to the point that they're getting agency staff to prop us up, as not enough people are getting through the application process. The person who sat next to me has left, which the admin managers are trying to hold me responsible for, but I blame the other staff and they have no intention of doing anything about them, so that's another boost to morale. Her consultants have been shuffled around (with me losing my easiest and gaining two regular ones, effectively doubling my work) with no sign of her being replaced. 3 seniors (including our new one, and the one in nearby department who oversaw us when we lacked a senior) are both leaving in about a month, our senior is being replaced with another staff member, so the work isn't going to be diluted further, but senior duties now overtaken by the admin managers. Hopefully, I just need to hold off for a few more months though, one of the consultants I work under is getting a grant for some cancer pathway thing, and has said I'm the only one she wants to be her secretary for it. Nothing is concrete so I'm not getting my hopes up too much, but hopefully something to look forward to.

  5. Rate the last film you saw

    Did you only watch that one because Madonna did the theme? O_O (which blew as well) I saw Last Vegas last night. I'm sad I didn't go to see it at the cinema as it one of those ones where I went "I'm definitely going to watch this", but never did. Some nice heartwarming-ish moments with old people tearing the young 'uns a new one with just the right amount of swearing. Will most certainly watch this again.
  6. The Official Fire Emblem Thread

    I can't help but feel that the Fodlan Winds remix on that would've fit Smash better than the straight rip it did get.
  7. Football Season 2019-20

    Another dodgy VAR call against us today too, Lo Celso should’ve had a red but wasn’t even carded!
  8. Yesterday
  9. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    I wouldn't go that far, I'm not completely steamrolled by Eiscue anymore, but if I don't keep certain Pokémon back for it, I'm in serious trouble. There's a chance of getting another Leftovers in Berry trees in the wild area. Go around, shake them once a day and you might find one if you're lucky. As for the Rocky Helmet, there's only one, so you're out of luck there. There's only one Shell Bell too, but I find that item isn't consistent enough to use. Tanky Pokémon that appreciate the healing generally can't do enough damage to make it worthwhile.
  10. Indie Games

    Apart from Dandara, the one I'm most excited about, Super Rare will also be releasing some other indies physically later this year. Some other good stuff amongst them.
  11. Dandara

    And another reason for me to bump this thread because..
  12. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Got a competitive "team" coming together somewhat. It still needs it's IVs ironed out but I'm stubborn in that the first Pokemon to reach Level 100 in game should be my in-game tyeam so that will have to wait for now. 4 of the 6 are fully trained and I'm waiting on the last two to come back from Seminars in order to get them ready. Yes, I know I could tweak the clock to speed up the process but I kind of want to do it the legit way and actually wait out the in-game clock for the session to expire. Though, knowing Glen has covered his team's weakness to Eiscue isn't very encouraging since one of the Pokemon on my team is an Eiscue. Beating down the Battle Tower with an ice cube headed penguin has a certain novelty to it though. I specifically chose Pokemon with a known competitive pedigree since I thought, if I'm going to be putting the effort into EV Training Pokemon they might as well be good Pokemon in terms of base stats or one with a well proven solid strategy. So another pick for my team was... So, pretty much the attacking brute force of the team is set up, now to do the Support Pokemon. One problem though is that I don't know if there's another way to get another Leftovers or another Rocky Helmet. I kind of want both for the held items for this team but don't want to take them off my in-game team and I don't know what happened to the Shell Bell.
  13. That bit (the whole quote) was from the press release issued after the direct finished.
  14. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Wasn't as embarrassing as me using Earth Power on your Rotom in the first battle. Completely stupid beginner mistake.
  15. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    You still would have won anyway. Honestly, I thought you had it in the bag after my terrible turn 1 and then Will O' Wisp missed. Those Stone Edge misses really screwed you over. It's one of the most used Pokemon you kinda have to really.
  16. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    I mean, there are so many possibilities in Pokémon, that you can't avoid a blind spot, it's all about predicting what is the biggest threat and shutting it down before it can do too much damage. @RedShell taught me that Eiscue was a big one for me, so I tweaked my team to better handle them. 4 of us should get a Multi Battle going some time. My Hydreigon is going to need some counciling after all those Focus Blasts to the face.
  17. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Well earned win there, @Ike. Your Alcremie was a proper rock repellant. Had a feeling you could pull it off with the right foresight. That's the risk I knew I'd be taking. Powerful attack, but it can let me down. Only have myself to blame for that. In hindsight, I should've have went for Stomping Tantrum after the first miss, but I was too busy chasing that Critical chance. Lesson learnt.
  18. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Good games. I guess that "team" can't handle Tyranatar very well.
  19. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    You were very unlucky with 3 Stone Edge misses in a row.
  20. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    OK, @Ike, no Dynamax this time.
  21. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Your smiley suggested you weren't serious! Now I feel bad.
  22. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Oh, and use Dynamax if you want, @Ike
  23. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Ah, I didn't see your previous edit. I was too used to the battle spot rules.
  24. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Nope, rematch, not fair for me to win that with 2 more Pokémon then you.
  25. Getting into Competitive Pokémon

    Righto, I'll open a Doubles room with the code 8274. Oh, and heads up, I'll be using all 6 Pokemon.
  26. Switch eShop Thread

    Maybe? The only thing I know is that I'm Norwegian Edit: And the coronation of the King is probably as well known as the year 1514
