This is the second Pokemon 3DS like this. I have to ask. Am I the only one that would have had the image rotated the other way? When that 3DS is open and held up, the image would be upside down.

I never understood the love for Charizard, it's always been a so-so pokemon competitively and then ever since the 4th gen it's been one of the worst pokemon in existence.

You don't have to. Now leave my Charizard alone. Go for your Pikachu or something, generic person.

Pikachu's not that good competitively either, its stats are average snd its ony useful if it's using a light ball set. And even then, there's better pokemon to use, I'd rather rock a Scizor or a Lucario as my main sweeper.

Two words on the reason why: Ash's Charizard. Enough said.

He's also a goddamn dragon. Not a girly dragon like Dragonite, either. He's a legit big-winged, sharp teeth, sharp claws, loud roar, fire-breathing dragon. And his tail is on fire! Dude's a boss.

So I wonder if this model decides to not turn on when it doesn't feel like it. Very Happy

Exactly, who didn't enjoy the disobedient Pokemon roasting Ash every week? Anime hyper

Nobody is basing their love of certain Pokemon based on usefulness in a broken metagame.

The Hitokage line has always been the most popular Generation I starter line in Japan. I especially like the Lizardon figure.

Titan: Pokemon's meta-game is far from broken unless you're playing in Ubers.

Of cooourse this happens only a month after I buy an XL. Granted I wouldn't be able to use this one, but considering the Pikachu edition made it's way to the UK, I wouln't be surprised to see both in America at some point.

Looks like the name 'Charizard' is official even to the Japanese. I'll stop using speech marks for English names then. Screw that, why call something 'Nosepass', when the LAST 3 letters of the name is banned for English use? Don't you dare say 'it's called Nosepass in Japanese as well'.
