Embers to the Flame: Part 5Ambre spent the rest of the night in her room, alone. She didn't want to eat but didn't exactly want to put her Pokemon through the same thing as well. Instead, she left them with the center for the night, picking them all up when she was ready. She laid on one of the bottom bunks, staring at the mattress right above her.Embers to the Flame: Part 5 by DJ0Hybrid
Just last night, Ambre was working on defeating the gym leaders, becoming stronger, and going to the Indigo League. Just like every other trainer. Now she was being watched and threatened by some secret organization as well, though she didn't even know who they were to begin with. Unlike every other trainer who were probably oblivious to everything.
She rolled over, starring at the blank, white wall. She could stay quiet, pretend like none of this happened. But she couldn't ignore the fact that the Umbreon didn't look happy at all in going back which was something she couldn't live without doing something. There was always the police, tipping them off could probably g
Embers to the Flame: Part 4Quickly thinking of a place to hide, Ambre immediately dashed off for the clothes store she saw earlier. The note was still clenched in her hand, hidden from anyone else even knowing that it existed. As she got some distance from the center, she briefly looked back to see if anyone was following. No one, no one seemed to be even watching her. Given the chance, Ambre slung her bag around and quickly stuffed the paper inside. Hopefully no one would try to pickpocket her.Embers to the Flame: Part 4 by DJ0Hybrid
She hoped that she was wrong, but the trainers in the Pokemon Center were probably the ones that had been searching for the Umbreon. Then the person who bumped in to her must have been the Umbreon himself. But how did she not notice him? A walking Pokemon wasn't exactly something no one would notice. Perhaps why all of those trainers had their Pokemon out. One standing in the crowd is a lot harder to tell when there are so many. Ambre tried to remember the person's face who bumped into her. She remembered sunglasses, and
Embers to the Flame: Part 3Ambre found the main road and walked towards Laverre City, slouching with her head down and arms limp by her side the entire way. Absol walked by her side, both keeping them on the path and looking up at his trainer to make sure she was alright. The path was clearing up to be only dirt, both Ambre and Absol were glad of that, which meant that they would soon arrive. As they rounded a turn and Ambre stopped. She looked up at the sky, filled with some white clouds but otherwise the clear blue skies and the sun not quite at its peak clearly visible. It was a nice day, perhaps a good day to continue training before the next gym. Or maybe a walk around the city would clear her mind a bit, Laverre was said to be a rather unique city from others in the Kalos region.Embers to the Flame: Part 3 by DJ0Hybrid
She snapped back into reality. Absol was standing in front of her, watching. Having her attention, he then placed a paw on her right knee. "Sorry Absol, I guess I'm just distracted," she kneeled down and scratched the back
To answer what was possibly the first thing to come to your mind: no, I actually like the concepts of Amiibos and I think Super Smash Bros demonstrates a great way in using them. To answer the other question that you might be thinking of: no, I currently have all of the amiibo figures that I want and are out, which I bought at retail price (grant, paid a lot of shipping for one, but I don't want to go to a Toys 'R Us store just to buy a Lucario amiibo and I saw the mad rush coming to get them.) The only one I think I would want now is Ike simply because his stance is pretty cool.
No, this complaint revolves around something like this: www.destructoid.com/man-hate-b…
For all of you who didn't bother to read, allow me to give you the short version. I guy in Europe hates Rosalina so much that he preordered 100 of them so that fans can't have her so easily. Now, it isn't hard to tell what kind of person he is: either a loser for trying to show his distaste for a character by making it that no one can enjoy them else a scumbag for buying up all the items and then selling them at a higher price. Or both, I'm good with both actually. But that isn't entirely my issue. See, I could go out and buy as many copies of something like 50 Shades of Grey, causing a shortage of supplies in multiple stores, then proceed to burn all of the books because they are all just crap. But that causes nothing but a short term supply and making both the publisher and author richer. If anything, I end up promoting the idea that it is a good book. But I'm getting off topic, my issue is this mass hysteria that are surrounding the amiibo figures.
See, there is apparently at least one rare Amiibo in each wave. But Nintendo gives zero hints as to what it is. In wave 1, it is Marth. Actually, no, it is Marth and Link. Correction, it is the Wii Fit Trainer and we know this because Nintendo said that they'll stop printing her! No, wait, it is Marth and Wii Fit Trainer! Hold up, it is Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer! Actually, it has probably changed now to just simply be everyone but Mario and Peach because reasons. Seriously, how cruel of Nintendo to only print certain Amiibos for a limited time and not tell anyone which one it is!
Now here's where I stick my neck out for this complaint and call these panicky collectors a bunch of idiots who couldn't be bothered to read something and think about it for just a second. Nintendo stated that the Wii Fit Trainer was probably going to be printed for a limited time because they figured that she wasn't very popular as a character compared to everyone else and her overall functionality beyond Smash would probably be nonexistent outside of being some generic Amiibo. They then compared her to Link who was already being used in Hyrule Warriors for something specific, would probably be used in more games as an Amiibo that unlocks something unique to it, and was a popular character overall so would be printed for a long time. This was all on the idea that the Wii Fit Trainer Amiibo wouldn't sell well, so Nintendo would have to make a point in which they need to stop production and deplete their stock so as to concentrate on Amiibos that are in high demand. Like Marth. This was brought up because Nintendo can't sell Amiibos like they do games. People are treating the model of selling games similar to that of Steam: if you are iffy about the product, just wait for the price to go down as it will always be there (with the case of consoles, it'll be there till the console is near the end of its lifespan.) Nintendo can't do that with Amiibos so they are advising people to buy them when they can as they have to stop making them instead of doing some kind of price drop. You know, like actual physical products. And then we have issues with protests in the western harbors that are probably screwing up more than just Nintendo's shipments (like my phone, I have a feeling it is somewhere on a boat or in a harbor, just sitting there with other phones.)
But that's just me. I'm not exactly the perfect being that knows how to spend his money. I actually want to dump $8,000 to relatively safely put a supercharger in my car. Still though, paying $80 just for a Japanese version of a figurine that'll they'll eventually get in stock seems ridicules to me.
Anti-Complaint I got a female, Jolly, Rough Skin Gible in the Wonder Trade today!
Bonus Complaint I finally was able to order the phone I want from Amazon! They missed the expected date and don't know when it is coming in. #FWP
