A Study in Pokemon Taxonomy
The science and practice of organizing and classifying Pokémon into a coherent ordering that does not directly contradict the already well-established taxonomy of all other life forms is a daunting task that has troubled Pokémon biologists for some time due to several main factors: the general differences between Pokémon and other life forms at the cellular level; contrary to that, the similarities in body structure of many Pokémon and similar animals; the dilemma of whether to count Pokémon as more closely related by Elemental type or by body structure; and the lack of any sort of clear pattern of common decent amongst Pokémon, contrary to most other categories of life.
The first and foremost point that must be addressed in Pokémon Biology is their inherent cellular energy signature.  This is the reason why Pokémon's cell structure can be easily destabilized and compressed into energy for storing inside a Poké ball.  It

Volcarona Report
Volcarona (the Sun Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Bug/Fire-type Pokémon found in a variety of environments across the world, including jungles, mountains, volcanoes and even deserts. Unbelievably powerful and dangerous to be around, Volcarona are magnificent creatures that can easily incinerate the competition with their dazzling skills and unique attacks. Make sure to go on a fully-physical assault when facing one of these titanic insects, because if you can't target their biggest weaknesses, you'll probably end up drowning in a sea of fire before the day is through!
Since the exoskeletons of almost all Bug-types are unable to sustain their structure in the presence of high temperatures, Bug-types in general are genetically unfit to possess the combustion organs present in most Fire-types; Larvesta and their evolved form, Volcarona, are the exception to this rule. Not only are the carapaces of both creatures chemically reinforced to resist burning to an extremely high deg

Mawile Report
Mawile (the Deceiver Pokémon) is an uncommon Steel/Fairy-type Pokémon found among dark caverns within the Hoenn, Unova, Kalos and Alola regions as well as the Kanto and Sinnoh regions on rare occasions. Adored and despised alike for their deceptive ways and vicious overbite, Mawile are seemingly defenseless creatures that hold a nasty surprise for anyone foolish enough to get close to them. They might seem innocent enough at first, but getting near them and the horns on their head is a very bad idea in every sense, particularly if you want to continue keeping your limbs in one piece!
In terms of their own physical abilities, Mawile are incredibly weak despite the fact that their bodies are coated in a permanent layer of organically-grown steel, which is designed as their primary means of defense; as a result, their population numbers are less than healthy and have been effectively limited to dark caverns where predators are less common. Even so, Mawile have learned to make up

I was just on YouTube and it tried giving me an unskippable ad that was FIVE MINUTES LONG. You read that right: minutes, not seconds. Needless to say, I refreshed the page to get something else.

To be fair, maybe it just glitched out and failed to load the Skip button. It's entirely possible, and I'm not above giving the benefit of the doubt. In fact, that's what my assumption is. Still, it's ridiculous enough to note.

And no, I did not use ad-blocking software because the video was made by someone I like and want to support.
Hey, it's a discussion thread, not a "help me" thread!

Yesterday, I booted up my old Windows 98 PC, dug through my boxes, and gathered up all the 3 1/2" floppies I could find to test them. I didn't find many, and unsurprisingly, a little over half of them did not work. I was disappointed that one of them was the one labeled to contain photos. However, I found five floppies that did still work. One contained an old version of Paint Shop, while the other four were part of a set of six disks I used for my homework back in high school. I even updated oneó a periodic table I made in Microsoft Excel. I added in all the new elements that had been discovered since then. It's been a while since I saved something on floppy.

It's said that the newer a floppy disk is, the less likely it is that it still works due to decreasing manufacturing standards over time. This is why I was mildly surprised that I found as many working ones as I did, as most were early 2000s disks. I have some stuff I need to transfer from the internet to that PC, and if the file sizes are small enough, I might not have to buy a crapton of blank CDs I don't need after all (I'd only need one, but no one sells 'em in bunches smaller than 50 anymore).

What about you? Any of you have older storage media that still work? Any relevant stories?
There are always items and traditions regarding the holidays that we all dislike. Ugly sweaters, bad food, annoying carolers... What are some traditions you wish would disappear? And to follow that up, what are some traditions often depicted as annoying that you actually enjoy?

I dislike most of the Christmas specials you see on TV. There are a few that I do like, such as most of the Doctor Who specials, but those tend to be the exception rather than the rule.

One oft-disliked thing that I do like is fruitcake. I love fruitcake.
There are all sorts of productions out there that are said to have not aged well. Perhaps the references are outdated or the effects are no longer impressive compared to today's. Perhaps its predictions of the future have proven to be wildly inaccurate. Perhaps the morals shown contradict ours now.

Whatever the reason for it, let's hear about some things that were awesome when they were new, but are no longer great today. It could be movies or TV shows. Even though this isn't the Gaming or Books & Comics forum, video games and literature will be acceptable, as will older media such as radio and stage plays.

My example is a really old one: "The Taming of the Shrew". It's a romantic comedy written by William Shakespeare and is my favorite of his productions. However, the ending would be considered extremely sexist if it hadn't been written nearly 400 years ago. The character of Kate goes from literally smashing violins on people's heads to the epitome of a "perfect wife" and chews out her sister for not being one.
Everywhere you look, you see all sorts of experts telling you what your healthiest food options are. Always get this, never get that. The problem is that they never consider that there's no way many people can afford to follow any of those tips. If I switched to an all-organic wheat-free corn-free non-GMO diet, I'd be out on the streets in a month. If those experts are so smart, why don't they give some tips that are actually useful for people who are not the one percent?

And here we have the final battle! Well, not really. I consider Celestia and Luna to be the "Champions" of the region. Which one is battled first depends on the time of day. Their teams are, of course, based on night and day, and meant to be equivalent (each team member having a counterpart in the other team). Luna's team starts with Lunatone and Umbreon, for obvious reasons. Honchkrow's PokeDex states that it's known as "the Bringer of Night". Since Luna does this literally, it's a natural choice. The rest of her team reflects her power over dreams. Celestia has Solrock and Espeon in place of Lunatone and Espeon. Moltres, meanwhile, represents her pet phoenix, Philomena. Shaymin's Sky Forme only happens during the day, but even if one faces her at night, Celestia can get around this rule simply by virtue of being herself, the bringer of day.

The other two I consider to be "post-game" things. Queen Chrysalis's team is pretty self-explanatory. Queen of Changelings and all. For Discord, I picked the most bizarre or otherworldly team members I could think of. For example, it doesn't make sense for a boss battle to have a Magikarp (or an NPC to have a Shiny), so it makes perfect sense for him to have it. I'm still undecided whether his should be an Inverse Battle or not.

It's not over yet! I still have two more of these! There's the Main 6's ultimate teams and the teams of some popular fan OCs.

I thought I'd come comment here since I closed my thread
You do realize your comment was extremely mature. You could've easily just told me that "hey, this isn't the thread for that."

You do know birth control isn't a "sexual focus." It's real life lmao

I was being impersonal. I don't like giving special treatment. I see a rule violation, I report it. I pride myself on maintaining an unbiased stance regarding this sort of thing. I did point you to the rules so this sort of unpleasantry can be avoided in the future.
