    Pikachu is a species too doe

    it's just like viceroys mimicking monarch butterflies

    makes perfect sense tbh, only way the concept could be "improved" would be to have hat wearing Mimikyu and different shade Mimikyu's, but even then, Pikachu doesn't have different shading in the games

    tl;dr ur wrong :catsmug

    How does that even apply to my argument? It's not the fact that it's mimicking something that's dumb, a lot of pokemon do that. A lot of animals irl do that too. I have zero problems with that.

    The problem is the REASON for the mimicking, and the fact that an entire species feels the same exact way with zero individuality makes no sense. It'd be like if everyone Charizard acted like Ash's Charizard. That doesn't make sense. It's a personality trait, not a physical one. Not only that, they all have the same self made Pikachu sheet that look exactly the same. It's silly. Concept works fine if there is only 1 Mimikyu, but falls apart because there are multiple.

    The Viceory butterfuly example is silly because that's a physical evolutionary trait to ensure better survivability, not a personality defect that led it to go create a bed sheet to wear over its head. If you can't tell the difference between the two, ionno what to tell you.

    Mimikyu is a ghost. Extreme popularity of Pikachus creating/influencing a specific group of ghosts wanting to be like the most popular Pokemon ever makes sense. You can come up with a feasible explanation on the spot - souls of Pokemon that passed away while feeling unloved due to their appearance latched onto the image of the most loved Pokemon. Pikachu's popularity is apparently abnormal in Pokeworld. It's not just one of the cutest Pokemon. It's "the cutest one". Your Charizard example doesn't work at all. Stop being stubborn, Bada.

    Yeah not to mention that there are evolutionary examples of animals copying other animals traits such as the corn snake mimicking the coral snake's skin pattern to increase the odds that it survives. Not exactly the same, but shows how a species can evolve via mimicry of another. Being cute, or popular could be advantageous qualities to copy.

    People should be mad at Cubone...Like every cubone's mother died by Team rocket,a nd then wears said dead mothers skull? That would also imply Marowak was the original form or atleast preceding cubone...

    I already responded to that argument. Its has nothing to do with survivability (because this is a ghost pokemon) and we know from its description that its a personality defect. The odd part is that an entire species has the same exact personality defect, but the most egregious part is that they all make Pikachu bed sheets to put over themselves that all look exactly the same. Like, what the fuck? Like one of them didn't even use a slightly darker shade of red. It's just silly when you think about it. The backstory is cute and makes sense for one Pokemon, but it falls apart when you equate it to an entire species.

    Yeah, there are other dumb examples of it happening in Pokemon too, which I also don't like. I'm not claiming Mimikyu is the worst Pokemon or that its the only Pokemon with that problem, I was just mentioning it bothers me based on how popular Mimikyu is and how strong it is competitively. Like with the Kadabra example, no one gives a fuck about Kadabra so you don't see me going on rants about how Kadabra's backstory makes no sense.

    Hell, there are probably dumb backstories for Pokemon that I really love that I just don't know about.

    Mimikyus' disguise look the same because every Pokemon within a specie group look exactly the same in game. Even though individual pokes should look slightly different. Mimikyu doesn't break any previously established rules and it's far more logical than a key-chain or ice-cream Pokemon.

    I guess Badamon would have Ability "Damage from Pokemons/things it considers stupid is ignored".

    And Klefki and ice cream shit are also dumb. Comparing Mimikyu to 2 of the most universally panned Pokemon doesn't do it any favors.

    The Internet was a glorious and free thing before the government interfered with it via "net neutrality", aka socialism which you only support because the media tells you to. Won't you liberals ever learn?

    Anyway, his cabinet is basically Bush 2.0. Just replace the defense contractors with Breitbart subscribers. A shame, really. As much as I bashed Trump, even I held out hope that he might turn out to be more moderate than he let on. In retrospect, that was probably giving him too much credit.

    Time to go buy four years worth of popcorn.

    I'm expecting good things from Chimera Ant considering all the praise...

    I think sometimes info-dumping is the only way but I keep getting the impression that HxH could relay its information through other means at times. I think a good adapation should never be 1:1 with the source material but rather remain faithful while playing to the medium's strengths. Some things don't translate well from manga to anime and I feel excessive narration is one of them. I'm considering reading the manga instead since I don't think I would have the same gripes if it was written.

    Fair, I'm pretty fond of the Monogatari series which literally is just people talking but it's probably me liking the themes and characters more so I could be a little biased there.

    Okay but look, you can't have it both ways. One second I'm insulted for liking popular shows like One Punch Man and Shingeki and the next I'm insulted for being a hipster. Let's decide on one erroneous label and stick with it.

    I'm literally shaking right now. I regret voting Trump with all my heart. With net neutrality on the way out, I can only assume that the free market will make the internet unaffordable and lower quality to consumers because that's how the free market usually works.

    Yeah, the Brexit broke a lot of people's hearts. They loved the EU. Not Blonde though.

    I honestly feel like Videl should have been declared the winner because she landed more hits in that fight. The rules of that tournament are bullshit and should be changed.

    The reason for the mimicking is no more whimsical than children powering up their partners' attacks (Z-Moves) through the power of love and dance. Certain personality traits are specific to certain Pokemon too (e.g. Primeape being so mad it literally kills itself), so you're still making much ado about nothing IMO.

    The fear-mongering about climate change is exasperating. Do I believe in climate change? Of course. The planet is getting warmer. Are we all going to die in 60 years if America doesn't severely limit its industries or hike taxes to send money overseas? Nope.

    The Trump administration is playing it smart. Let Europe and China do the expensive heavy lifting in establishing renewable energy as an affordable alternative, we'll unload a portion of our $50 trillion in natural resources in the meantime, and then we'll jump into renewable energy when it's established and cheaper for nickels on the dollar. Everybody wins (except for Egypt and Ethiopia.)
