Hey, /v/. I have a question, if it isn't too much trouble for you.
With pokemon pearl (or diamond, I guess), when one exchanges friend codes,
does one give up personal or IP information of some sort? And, more
importantly, what are the capacities for communication over wireless and such?
Can one send text messages, or things like that, or is it limited to
non-personalized battling and trading and such?See, I'm considering
whether it's wise to solicit said codes for wireless play for a certain
someone, or...not so much.Picture not entirely related, but
Grow some fucking balls and stop being such a
get right on that.
don't see how. unless there's some way to use the Friend code as a
dowsing rod for IP addresses. They don't really have anything to do with
one another. If you take a DS or Wii to a different IP, it still uses
the same friendcode. tl;dr: what >>3752743
but what about the communication issue? Just what can one do to
communicate with someone you have a friend code with? I can't check the
manual and such, because it's still in the box, which is still in the
store, on hold for me.
You use a microphone....or you send mail through
pokemon using awful pre-made words.
one turn that off?
seen people on 4chan who have it disabled. I'm not really sure how, but
they might just have their volume turned off. In which case... Nintendo
Wifi can sense that it's off 'cause it shows a "no megaphone" icon by
but if you try to connect to someone with it on, you must turn your VOIP
onif you invite with VOIP off, they must deactivate VOIP to do
stuff with you
Press A! Press A! This isn't a cutscene! SHOOT EM IN THE
I imagine covering the mic with a piece of thick tape might
be a low-tech solution as well.Too bad my wifi's shot to hell
and back, or I'd gladly try it out for
a good idea, actually. I wouldn't have thought of that. Hmm. At this
rate, it looks like I may need to do some test driving before I make a
decision and hand it, and potentially friend codes people may offer,
over to her one way or
like a good idea.
Okay, another question...if you had the opportunity, would
you play some pokeymans with her? I can't really say how she'd 'behave'
on it, but she's certainly a lot more tolerable to me than any other kid
her age I've spent time with...but I suppose I'm a bit
GO BACK TO SCHOOL KYLE!
who's this her?
arm? I don't get it. Cute drawings
Nurse-kun? In my /v/?!Hehe good to see you
Nurse-kun, keep up the good work.(hehe, I'm actually coding
chapter 21 of DG into Scarred as we speak
you sure 4chan is the best crowd to introduce a young girl to? We may be
awesome at pokemon, but we are really lousy
believe me, I'm well aware. Thus, the basis for all this questioning:
How much can I, well, scotchguard the pokeymans to keep 4channers from
ruining it all with her?
vey, you'd better prepare her for 4chanians then. Must liek Mudkip and
fuck yeah Seaking.
HAY IT'S NURSE KUNSUP
she has one arm, one eye, and she's missing her legs above the knee; a
result of which, along with the orphaning due to her parents dying in
the crash that inflicted said injuries, she's living in a nursing home,
surrounded by old people and professional caregivers, as a ward of the
state. As such, she doesn't really get out much, or get to play
or interact with people her own age, which is why I'm considering any of
this at all.
she have REAL friends to play Pokemans with? That would solve most of
the problems right there.What age is the loli in question,
home from work a little while ago, chillin', getting ready to sleep for
a few hours, you?
a forum with younger people that perhaps they could actually talk to
over VOIP as well as battle.
was quite handy with the internets, apparently, before the accident, and
losing her home/room/own PC/internet access/etc. And with young and
intelligent parents, I'm fairly sure, as she's told me herself, that
they taught her how to be careful on it. So she isn't an entirely
wideeyed Amish kid exposed to the online abyss for the first
time.Still, if it's limited to seeing Seakings named 'Fuck
Yeah', that'd be acceptable. It isn't as if she hasn't heard such words
before, after all.
don't know of any forums with such people, though I'm trying to think of
some. I don't really browse nintendo or pokeymans forums, y'know? Not
that there's anything wrong with that......even so, I'm not sure
how much good it would do, as she has yet to initiate contact with
anyone her own age when we've been out and about thus far...not peaceful
contact, anyway. She has some issues with 'normal'
seven. Well, eight, in a few months. And no...she doesn't. Not anymore,
Nurse-kun, I still think it's a bad idea. You just know
someone's going to point her to wikichan. And I gather that may not be
something you want, what with the 'should i stick it in her pooper /b/?'
forums at Serebii.net might be a good choice. If you don't mind her
learning the ways of the tourneytard. She can trade, battle, and all
that to her heart's content.
what they're like though, cos you know how kids can be dodgy... (case in
point that boy she beat up)
sort of thing would be what I'm worried about...well, not wikichan,
really, since her only form of internet access is her DS, and she
doesn't have the web browser thing I think I saw somewhere once, but
problematic mails through trades and such in general, ranging a gamut of
various subjects. My best idea is to ask her to let me read them first
when she gets one, since she knows how people can behave online, though
I'm not sure the game supports that, or such. Been a while since I
played one, and not the new version
YOU EXIST AND THEREFORE READING UP ON WIKICHANI DON'T KNOW HOW
MUCH YOU CAN ACTUALLY COMMUNICATE VIA POKEMONS SINCE I DON'T OWN THE
GAME, BUT I HERD THAT CHATOT HAS AN ATTACK THAT LETS YOU RECORD YOUR
VOICE. THEN AGAIN, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WORKS ON WI-FI. JUST THROWING IT
OUT THERE.ALROUND, GIVING OUT HER FRIEND CODE TO /b/ IS PROBABLY
A BAD IDEA, IF YOU WERE CONSIDERING IT. MY 2
I'll look into those.
wasn't just going to give it out up front,
Yeah I reckon it would be nice to find a forum for her where
she can play with other kids, but just keep /b/ and /v/ in the dark
about her friend code./b/ is why we can't have nice things
Sup Nurse-kun, anyway, only VOIP is possible, but how would
she get someone's friend code, or give out hers in the first place if
all she has is a DS?
Also, not only does she need to give out her friend code,
they need to give you their friend code before any form of battling or
trading can be done over wi-fi
google-fu beat you to it, thanks though. I actually thought years of
internet use had made me horribly jaded and desensitized, but I'm happy
to report this actually made me weep. Best of luck to you.In
and as her link to the internets, whether she knows it or not...well,
surely you can see where the train of logical conclusion is
luck then, it's safe. Unless a /b/tard manages to trade friend codes,
and decides to spell out a message to ask her to check wikichan via
long as it doesn't have the capability to spell out complex original
messages, it's fine. It uses pre-set phrases and
pokemon names, you can put basically whatever you
names can be written in anyway you want, 10 characters restriction
hi Nurse-kun ;_;
doubt /b/ is THAT omnipotent
doubt /b/. Never, ever.
Cheer up, you guys, it's a beautiful day where I am...and dwelling on
the dark won't accomplish anything. I know that, despite my frequent
jokes (well, partial jokes) about the toxicity of 4chan, there are
probably at least a few people on here that actually care about her.
Which is why I'm asking this here, and considering the possibility of
trying to find some of those people for friend codes, at
all.People are always saying that I 'restore their faith in
humanity' or 'inspire them to do more with their lives' or such, which
is hard for me to believe, because I'm just, you know, a guy. But the
truth is, a lot of you have given me a new way of looking at Anonymous,
as well. Hm, tired, sentimental.
that'd be a bit much, conceiving a 60 character message by naming their
pokemon and sending them out in a specific
still gonna go for her pooper?
OMG PROSTING IN A NURSE-KUN
right now, no. I need to go to bed.
Time for me to get some sleep, /v/. You were quite helpful,
thank you. Seeya.
