wait holy fuck
my whole fucking life i've gone "porygon doesn't make sense. like i buy that they programmed a pokemon but programs don't have physical form"
pokemon and items can be stored as data in the pc. technology is amazing
@monorail Hold on Porygon is DRMed according to bulbapedia?
"According to its Pokédex entries, it has copy protection built into its code, preventing duplication through electronic means"
@monorail @kurt This is hilarious if you, well, know anything about Pokémon glitches whatsoever.
@kurt @monorail does that imply that normal pokémon DON'T
@a_breakin_glass @monorail If other pokémon can just be copied then Pokémon Day Care is kind of a scam.
@kurt @monorail *downloads a porygon from a warez bbs, has to sit through a cracktro every time their new catch exits a pokeball*
@kurt @monorail Evolution to Porygon-Z involves cracked software, why else is the disc dubious and only evolves through trading
This is my personal mastodon instance. For now at least.
Can I suggest you make an account over at ping.the-planet instead?
