Ouen mainly has Ash's starter Pokémon giveaways, which have a pretty wide range of starters as you've seen.

Technically the original Ouen starters were the terrible ones I created sometime in 2002/3, of which Monarking was actually the final form Water starter, but as those were terrible they're now uncanonical and instead I might finish creating a new set, but I doubt I'd ever have them appear in the ILCOE.

How do you pronounce "Mewtwo^2"? Mewtwotwo or mewtwo squared?

edit: (Scyther swarm) What happens if an egg hatchs and one or both of it's parents is/are dead? Who gives blood/holds the fresh prey?
What happens if the leader is the father/mother?
Can a female be leader?



Please check out my Fan Fics (They're in this forum).



I'm not always rational, but I think people think I am.

In my head it actually tends to become "Mewtwo'two", as in Mewtwo-beat-two. Don't ask why. You can pronounce it however you want, though; there isn't really an official pronunciation for it, hence why it's not in the pronunciation guide.

What happens if an egg hatchs and one or both of it's parents is/are dead? Who gives blood/holds the fresh prey?
The parent role is only pretty arbitrarily related to who actually donated the egg and sperm. The important thing is that two Scyther commit themselves to a basic sort of responsibility for the hatchling and will share their prey with it when necessary and so on. So if one parent dies, the remaining parent just finds somebody else willing to take on that bit of responsibility.

What happens if the leader is the father/mother?
Somebody else acts as the official father/mother, since the Leader has other responsibilities and isn't expected to be worrying about hatchlings.

Can a female be leader?
Yes; Leaders can be either sex.

You might think about updating the FAQ - more specifically, the last question, where it says:
because of who he is and what Suicune in turn did to him, and Suicune did that for yet other reasons which I know and you don't.
But we know it by now.
Just a thought.

EDIT: Also, in the Trivia under Scrapped And Edited, it says:
Not that I'm very good at names now either, but at least they're slightly more original than they used to.
Shouldn't the word 'be' be there?

BUTTERFREE, BUTTERFREE!

I'm your TQftL's first raving fanboy! Somehow, I got my parent's written permission to let me dye my hair blue at the begginning of this summer. I'm tottally gonna make it electric blue, get a pair of those fancy sunglasses he has, and dress up!

Unfortunatly, I don't know what shade of electric blue it is, what his haircut is like, or much about the sunglasses. If you could show me via pictures or something, that'd be brilliant! Later, I'll post up the pictures here, on this very board.

Hehe. I'm raving, I know, but I'm doing it.

Scyther: Sparky's bio has a picture now, something elyvorg drew for my birthday, if you want a reference.

I'm… not sure whether to be flattered or disturbed. x3

…if this Sparky cosplay actually happens, I definitely want to see pics. :O

And Scyther, don't worry about following my drawing too closely, if you do use it as a reference. I was using creative licence on it myself, after all.



Sad is happy for deep people.

So, what happens if a Pokémon (except Sciztwo) uses more then four Moves in an official Battle?

I hate to say it, but you're going to have to get used to people not liking things you like.

Incidentally, read better fantasy. Seriously; read any halfway decent writer and you'll immediately see the difference.

Depends on the seriousness of the battle, what the move was and whether your Pokémon actually executes the move; in the league it's generally grounds for disqualification or at least one of your Pokémon being struck out (well, it's more like a hefty penalty in the preliminaries, but after that you're expected to have hammered the rule pretty rigorously into your head).

I named my SoulSilver rival Taylor… following the Bio.

What do you prefer to drink on a regular day?

elyvorg, after staring at that picture really closely, I realized how very disturbing his eyes are through the glasses.

Ehh, the goatee mustache thing'll be a problem. Any (serious) suggestions? I suppose I could just cut some hair of and glue it, but that'd be weird.

Water, unless there happen to be soft drinks available.

It's not like you'd ever look exactly like him anyway; just ignore it.

But they're not! They're meant to look all bright and cheery and Sparkyish! D:

… there is more to fantasy than the mainstream. In fact the only fantasy worth reading is outside the mainstream. Let me give you a few names, if you want to see what the genre can really do: George R. R. Martin, Scott Lynch, Robin Hobb. Trust me.

Would you care to explain how exacley Mewtwo^2's attack worked? Unless, of course, it will be explained next chapter.

0_o Do you have any variety in your diet at ALL??? What do you think of the Pokewalker then, did you walk for unusual amounts of time? I did. (Almost four miles today; going to walk again in ten or so minutes.)

The attack didn't work any particular out of the ordinary way. Mewtwo^2's psychic abilities are just so powerful that it can affect Dark-types. In a game setting, where there's literally a multiplier of zero going on, this would most likely be expressed with an ability akin to Scrappy but for Psychic and Dark-types, though to be accurate it would nonetheless have to affect them less than other types, like by turning them "not very effective".

Um, I don't have the game. It's not out over here yet, remember?
