Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation IV Pokemon

The Generation 4 results are in - and after 2.2 million votes, we have the top 15 Sinnoh-kemon. While the Bidoof enthusiasts made their voices heard in the comments, the votes were not enough to put everyone's favorite badger-rodent-thing over the top. So here are the (reminder: according to voters, not ME, Bidoof-ophiles) greatest 15 Pokemon from Generation 4.


15. Electivire

  Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation IV Pokemon

Gen 4 was a gift to many sadly-unevolving Pokemon from Gen 1 - Magmar grew into Magmortar, Tangela grew into Tangrowth, and Electabuzz grew into Electivire. Not to get too personal, but as someone who was a dumb kid in the days before Bulbapedia, I foolishly trained an Electabuzz to Level 100, convinced it would evolve eventually. It didn't. But knowing now that it would have evolved into Electivire makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, even if it does look like an electric gorilla with two dongs coming out of its shoulders.

Article 9 Game Titles That Are Way Better In Japan

By Andrew Bridgman / September 26, 2013

1. Violence Killer: Turok New Generation (US Name = Turok 2: Seeds of Evil)

  10 Game Titles That Are Way Better In Japan

What's the only thing better than killing dinosaurs? Killing VIOLENCE. Killing the concept of "causing physical harm against others." Which, if you've ever used the Cerebral Bore, you'll know that's actually not the worst description. Better than planting seeds of evil - this title is a full-grown plant of evil.


2. God Slayer: Sonata of the Far Away Sky (US Name = Crystalis)

  10 Game Titles That Are Way Better In Japan

Crystalis is one of those names that doesn't really mean anything - it's a vaguely fantasy-esque title, but nothing else. Whereas "GOD SLAYER" is pretty badass - someone described by their slaying of gods? Pretty cool, especially when there's a song involved about how distant the sky is.

Article How To Purchase 'Bravely Default' (As a Socially-Awkward Adult)

By Andrew Bridgman / February 14, 2014

Are you a socially-anxious, overly-neurotic, deeply self-critical individual? If you are, you occasionally run into potentially embarrassing situations that you overthink even though they're likely completely irrelevant and you have no reason to be embarrassed. One of these situations might be buying a videogame with a weird cover. Like, oh I dunno, Bravely Default.


How To Purchase A Game With An Embarrassing Cover


The game looked great (and it IS great) - but the problem is, I really, REALLY didn't want to go to an employee at Best Buy or GameStop and buy a game that featured some kind of creepy "sexy teenage butterfly." This is not a "cool thing" for a grown adult to be buying in a public setting. However, I wanted a physical copy AND I wanted it immediately, so that took downloading and Amazon off the table.


Luckily, this gave me an excuse to come up with different methods for getting the game, embarrassment-free!
