Anonymous asked:Hello! The livestream you hosted was really quite fantastic. How often do you do them, and this there a specific schedule for them? I just wouldn't want to miss another one!
Hey, glad you enjoyed it (the chat was kicking this time!)
I’m, uh, about as consistent as the chat on Twitch Plays Pokemon. I actually don’t stream that much. I’m trying to stream more frequently at more consistent times, but the only times I could be really consistent are when most of the United States is asleep (3-8 AM MST). So I’ve just been streaming whenever for now.
I’ll let everyone know if I manage to nail down a good time that doesn’t occur during the buttcrack of dawn.

opalwhisker replied to your post “I was wondering, is there any sort of protection for trainer-owned Pokémon?
but how is it fair that if a pokemon dies the trainer gets fined for it? Is there some kind of procedure you have to go through to prove the pokemon has died otherwise they count it as ‘missing’?
Although, a surprising number of people will pretend that their Pokemon found a sweetheart in the wild and ran away, and will even pay the fines, rather than admit that they actually got it killed in battle.
thatboringspanishguy asked:I was wondering, is there any sort of protection for trainer-owned Pokémon? We know the League regulations don't let trainers use potentially dangerous moves if they're not experienced enough to be able to control themselves, but what about things like Pokémon abuse or trainers abandoning their Pokémon? Would there be any repercussions for them?
I talked about something similar here. The thing is, in a world where Pokemon can be legally taken from their homes and trained to beat each other up for a living, it can be very hard to tell ‘abuse’ from ‘run-of-the-mill training’. But if people can prove that the trainer’s actions are endangering the Pokemon’s health, they can absolutely nab an abusive trainer.
Abandoned Pokemon are a big big BIG deal. Highly trained Pokemon released into the wrong place can singlehandedly destroy entire ecosystems. Trainers are expected to release their Pokemon through official channels—all unwanted Pokemon should be given to Relocation Centers dedicated to finding them appropriate new homes. Every year, when a trainer renews their license, they have to account for all the Pokemon under their name. Any ‘missing’ or abandoned ones can end up costing them huge fines and/or their license.
(Basically, Robin is going to end up in a hairy situation about a year down the line.)
Anonymous asked:Is there any official league mandated starter pokemon, or can a trainer choose anything they want. I remember seeing that trainers that don't live near a regional professor can register at the local pokemon center and receive starter pokemon through there. I saw it somehow on bulbapedia.
Kids can have any starter Pokemon in Alterity, but there’s been a big push to require League-mandated or at least domestic starter Pokemon because a lot of kids choose really crappy/potentially dangerous starters e.g. the Rattata eating trash out of the dumpster behind their house.
These reformation efforts have consistently been blocked by those who insist that all Pokemon—including Rattata eating trash out of dumpsters—should be allowed the chance to join a trainer as their first Pokemon.
Anonymous asked:@Witt: you know the little flatline bleeps Trumpet makes? I get the general idea what they represent, but what are they specifically? Because I don't see her communicate with them, as she speaks normally to her fellow Whimsur friends. Is it just some speech that we didn't catch?
Here’s a hint: they’re not used for speech. Second hint: Alterity Whismur live in extremely dark caves, where vision would be useless.
Pretty much how I react to everything.
A bunch of you cool people have written in asking how Pokeballs work and about how the Pokemon Language works. Just wanted to let you know that I’m planning to make some fancy infographics about these, so sit tight! Thank you so much for your comments and input!
