Fandom, I think you and I need to have a little chat.
And by that I mean I’m going to have to erect a trial in the Great Court to befuddle these amazing dark-witch lies that you’ve spun to slander this golden princess. Swords of truth at the ready. Huge spoilers herein, so mind where you tread.
There will also be triggering content, that of rape/incest/paedophilia mention (but that’s due to the fact she’s.. accused of it rather than it being legit content).
So, here we go.
I must say that I’m a bit surprised that Frank Grimes from the Simpsons episode “Homer’s Enemy” is on here, and I figured I’ll make a defense.
Envious of Homer’s success, too critical of Homer’s character, is rude to Homer even when Homer tries to be nice, is too quick to make judgement, tries to ruin Homer’s reputation, scoffs at Homer’s attempts to change for the better
These can all have the same type of defense. In the episode, it is shown that, ever since childhood, Frank has struggled through life (including being abandoned by his parents and being blown up in a silo explosion). In his own words, Frank has had to work hard every day of his life, and all he has to show for it is a briefcase and his haircut. In contrast, Homer has had pretty much everything in life handed to him, despite being stupid and irresponsible at his job. I can see why he would be envious of Homer. Also, there’s a scene where Frank gets in trouble with Mr. Burns for something that Homer was responsible for. I’d say that most of Frank’s anger towards Homer is justified (not to mention that Homer didn’t start to try and change until after Frank told him that they’re now enemies).
Anonymous said: I just wanted to quickly say something about Nitori from Free!. For people who hate him because he supposedly has no life outside of Rin, now that Season 2 of Free! is airing you get the chance to see Nitori having his own goals, facing his own conflicts and his relationships with other characters.
Okay, so here we have a very major character in Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Beatrice the Golden Witch.
Almost all the complaints border/completely leap onto spoiler territory, so rebuttals are going to be put under the cut.
Blaziken’s a personal favorite so let’s get to it;
"Broken"; I don’t play competitive so I’m not entirely sure what’s meant by this but I imagine it has to do with how overpowered Blaziken can be and possibly how unpredictable a set is. That’s not the fault of Blaziken but the creators and it doesn’t have too much to do with how others play the game outside competition between players. All I can say on this is don’t play with it and don’t battle those who do if you’re so upset by it.
Mega before the other Hoenn Starters; I’m 90% sure that Mega Blaziken was the “real hint” towards Hoenn’s confirmation. Torchic’s distribution and Mega Blaziken’s reveal was supposed to hype players for Hoenn and give them a taste of what gen 6 Hoenn could be like. It’s a marketing strategy, not some intentional slap in the face or anything. Besides, Mega Blaziken was only announced before the others, I’m 99% sure Mega Sceptile and Swampert were already ‘a thing’ before and during Mega Blaziken’s release.
"Didn’t need a Mega"; That may be. Blaziken is super strong even without the boost it gets from mega evolution, but so what? It might not’ve needed the boost but neither did something like Gengar or Mewtwo. Besides it’s looking more and more like every starter is getting Megas so it had to happen eventually or folks would whine about it not getting a Mega. Again, since this is Pokemon, if you don’t like it don’t use it!
"Fire/Fighting Trend"; I will admit that all the fire/fighting types got irritating after a while and I’d love to know the reasoning behind it from someone who was there when they decided to make it a trend. That doesn’t make it Blaziken’s fault and no fire/fighting types should get hate because someone in charge decided to forego more creative type choices like we got in Gen 6 or even Gen 4. Something like this makes it seem like folks are blaming the trend on Blaziken, which is silly, and again since this is Pokemon, if you don’t like it don’t use it. Or other fire/fighting types if that’s your issue.
Speaking personally about Blaziken’s strength though I can say that a lot of younger players might find a great partner in such an OP Pokemon and find it more fun to steamroll everything that comes their way. It’s not a bad thing for a Pokemon to be so strong or to get so powerful with a Mega it might not’ve “needed”.
Okay so let’s state why people outside of the fandom hate on Beatrice Ushiromiya.
