I hear you can catch a lot of smoke, fire, and ghost pokemans at the WTC.

Surprised it took this long to get to Fark.

So YEAH, fun stuff.  Until this we had no idea Diamond and Pearl had different encounter rates on certain days.  Indeed, without the source code we would never likely have known since no one was probably gonna reverse engineer the whole thing.

But you can probably expect all future speed runs to happen on 9/11 or August 6th and 9th, just to keep wild encounters down.  I mean you could do New Years day, but that isn't nearly as macabre.

Funny, I want to play games like Pokemon more on days like 9/11 so I don't have to hear hollow hand-wringing on the news and social media.

I don't know shiat about Pokemon other than my GFs first husband (deceased...cancer) went mental collecting cards 20+ years ago and she just sold off SOME of the collection for 6 farking figures.

I knew they were worth something but I never dreamed they'd bring in that much.

/Haven't even started on the sports cards
