Musings and Such by Moonvale
Hi, you can call me Moonvale. Welcome to my blog! It used to be strictly Animal Crossing themed, but I think it's nice to have somewhere were I can talk about all the video games and things I love!

Yo, Sega.
If you could make another game with Chao raising in it that’d be great. Doesn’t even have to be a Sonic Adventure game. I just want to save animals, get rings, and use that stuff to raise adorable little pudding babies that change colors.
Like seriously why was there no chao garden in sonic forces or something. I love sonic games but like, without chao there’s no real reason for me to want to keep playing after I’ve gotten S ranks in the stages and stuff.
Doesn’t help that a chao-raising focused game I had fantasies about when I was younger involved creating your own character so they didn’t need to think of a plot for Sonic and friends to get involved in. Then Sonic Forces happened. Like now we could play as someone who’s helping clean up after that game and just happened to find a wild chao garden or something.
I like pet raising games guys aaahhh I should go to sleep

So there's this comic by Final Smash Comic (man, I still miss them) that basically brings up the idea of characters in Smash Bros. changing their appearances based on the stage they fight in, and to this day, it makes me wonder: assuming the fighters turn into anthro animals in those stages, what animals would Villager and Pokemon Trainer even turn into in the Star Fox stages, since they're both essentially the token humans of their series (at least only in Smash in the case of Pokemon Trainer)?
I could see the villager turn into a monkey since humans are related to monkies and apes, or maybe a cat since they’re similarly shaped body-wise.
The real question is Pokemon Trainer. Since they don’t actually fight and just throw pokeballs to let their pokemon out they’d probably just be a pikachu or something running around in the background.

I just had a realization: New Pokemon Snap is the first Pokemon spin-off for Switch that is neither simultaneously available for smart devices (Okay, Quest technically released on Switch first, but I believe the mobile versions of that game were announced at the same time as the Switch version) or is a port/remake of any sort. Took 'em 4 years, but the Switch finally has some kind of exclusive game for once in terms of Pokemon spin-offs.
*holds up New Pokemon Snap like its Simba and the circle of life is playing from every speaker around*

PREACH. Also if they can’t give us that at least, default it to on! Sometimes the characters mutter and I don’t catch what they say, talk to fast and I don’t understand what they say, have an accent and I mishear what they say... sometimes the music and dialogue mixing aint the best. The list goes ON.
Hot take: The option for subtitles should be offered before a game starts, i shouldn’t have to figure out which menu it is buried in.

You know, I honestly have to wonder how on Earth the term "Legendary Dogs" even came to be when referring to the Legendary Trio in Pokemon Gen 2. Like, I know some people see a hint of "wolf" in Suicune and others argue Entei might be based on a Shishi/Shisa (a mythological creature that's essentially a hybrid of a dog and a lion), but what canine-like traits are even supposed to be found in Raikou? That thing clearly does not resemble any animal BUT a tiger or a saber-toothed cat.
I like to think of it as a Rorschach test for if the person looking at them is a cat or dog person. Dog person? Thems some good boys! Pupperoos! Woof woofs.
Cat person? Those are our lords and masters. Keety weeties. Meows!
I see them as cats, by the way. :D

Here's another piece of GC Animal Crossing canon that was not followed suit in later games: Timmy's e-reader card implies that the Nooklings may be related to Tom Nook, and a card that shows both Nooklings outright says Tommy is the older twin. However, Wild World suggests there is no familial relationship between Nook & the kids and Welcome amiibo says Timmy is older. (Oddly, the GC info is acknowledged in the Nooklings' trophy in Smash Bros. Brawl, when WW was the most recent game at the time)
Man Tom is totally hiding the fact them’s his kids from Sable. IT WAS A ONE NIGHT STAND, HE PROMISES. HE WAS DRUNK. It was probably Redd’s fault.
Also if I were a twin I would totally argue about who was born first, so imma just call that accurate. :P

So Portia's e-reader card from the GC game claims that she "was an only pup", which is immediately followed by "and never had the chance to pick on a younger brother". In NL, the April Fools Day event can actually have a villager confirm if they have siblings and what "rank" they are (oldest to youngest). What does Portia say? "Second of six". IIRC, the GC game's US localization is vastly different than the JP version, so it's definitely questionable if the GC localization is even canon.
I’d lean more towards the later game’s canon being more accurate, wouldn’t be surprised if the localization was fast and loose when it came to this silly little game about living with animals back in the gamecube days.

Pokemon, my dudes.
Yesterday I paid for my preorder of the new pokemon snap for switch and also bought 4 pokemon plushies and this guy saw my armful of plushies and decided it was time for us to talk about pikachu being cool and that ASH YOU NEED TO FUCKING EVOLVE YOUR GODDAMN PIKACHU ALREADY TRUST ME HE’S HAD ENOUGH TIME TO GET ALL HIS STATS NICE AND JUNK OR WHATEVER. Evolve him. Evolve him. Do it.
Blow all our minds and evolve him into Gorochu. Because there’s no way he can just become a raichu after all this time.
Pokemon: Giving two drastically different people something to spontaneously joke and gush about because one of them had a Pikachu Plush.
Despite my asperger’s and extreme social anxiety if you get me to talk about games I am quite talkative and POKEMON IS MY FIXATION I COULD TALK ABOUT THAT SHIT FOR YEARS. Want to instantly make me comfortable enough to talk? My pokemans let me tell you about them.

Excluding fish and invertebrates, what kinds of animals do you feel would be the most difficult to turn into Animal Crossing characters (either as special characters or villager species)? I honestly wonder how they would handle whales, dolphins, manatees and the likes, since, unlike seals and walruses, those guys practically lack anything remotely resembling hind legs and trying to anthropomorphize them to accommodate to the standard anthro style would be a massive creative liberty.
Snakes. THEY DON’T HAVE ANY ARMS.

There aren’t many maps for Avalon Code online.
That I can find easily and that has the whole area in one image.
So I fucking made some. Sometimes I get confused. I need this. MSPaint Y’all.

I’ll be making more but I like to get 100% of the exploration points (woo pixel hunts for the right trigger point!) before I have it done. Though if a future vision/character quest event added another place to scan with the book after I took care of it I’m probably not going back to change the image since it’ll be mostly straight forward where that metalize scan thing is. Plus I’ve only just reached chapter 5 so. Also the smaller or more straightforward maps will get done later unless someone asks for it before I decide to do it.

So in Animal Crossing: Ctiy Folk, Brewster had a unique function that was not in any other game where he had what was essentially a "Gyroid museum", where you could give him a Gyroid of each kind to store in his collection, and you could also take out any Gyroid from his collection at any time. It's unfortunately rather bland in presentation (it's more-or-less just the Catalog menu, but exclusively Gyroids), but it was such a neat concept that I wished they had put it in New Leaf.
*slams hands down on desk* BRING. BACK. THE GYROIDS. ITS BEEN A YEAR, NINTENDO. AS FAR AS I KNOW YOU AINT DONE THAT YET.
ALSO BRING BREWSTER BACK WITH THEM AND LET HIM HAVE HIS GYROID MUSEUM. HECK LET US DISPLAY SOME *IN* THE CAFE AS ENTERTAINMENT.

I have discovered Avalon Code
It’s a DS game.
That’s all I wanted to share, good day.

So after doing a little research, I have came to learn that the only Pokémon games where at least one Starter in its base form can learn every required HM move are the Hoenn games (with Mudkip), Black & White 1 (with either Snivy or Oshawott), and X & Y (with Froakie). However, Tate & Liza require two Mons to battle them and the box Legendaries in the latter 2 are required to be captured, so doing an "Only 1 Pokémon Caught" run is still impossible in those games (not sure about Sun/Moon onward).
Wow that’s interesting. I’ve never thought about HMs on starters like that. Then again I’ve never actually thought about doing one-pokemon runs either.
