Wil Wheaton, mensch.
I fuckin’ love Wil Wheaton. This is just an added bonus.
Let’s see how this stacks up against other female leads in the Pokemon anime:
*Starter Pokemon: main-game starter Pokemon.
**Originally episode 26, but due to two episode being banned/removed from the order, it is episode 24.
Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.

I don’t have a lot of offer, but I am definitely on the look out for some! Aside from the Dragon trio, Rayquaza, and a ‘Dex-only registered Mew, I don’t have anything else.
It’d be super helpful for me to complete my shiny ‘Dex. Let me know if you’re interested and we can work something out. I don’t mind breeding specific Pokemon (IVs, egg moves, possibly shiny breeding if it’s rare enough).
Also, I’m looking for legal Pokemon. None of this “I got a Shiny Jirachi” because it’s virtually impossible to get a shiny English Jirachi. Check your facts before offering, please.
men: rape jokes hahaha! beating women haha! lol make me a sandwich whore! put on makeup fugly! hahaha!

men: lighten up, it’s a joke wow must be on her period women are so emotional lol
