Just my personal favorite, though I'm always torn between that and gen. 1 because I was the right age for gen. 1 when it hit.  My sister is the biggest Pokemon fan I know and she was the right age for gen. 3 when that hit so that probably has a lot to do with it. Gen. 4 definitely brought a lot of great stuff too but by the time it came out I was losing interest.

Also, yeah I went with the 1 character answer as a friendly joke.

I think most people who played have a prefferance to the gen that was current at the time that they were in the 9-13 age range, since I think that's the big target audience for the actual games. Of course, there are exceptions. I quite like Pokemon Black/White, and I was way past target audience range by then.

For my big favorite, that would be Gen 2. There were plenty of pokemon where you could catch most of the current pokedex without too greatly relying on another game, and there wasn't an obsene number of pokemon just yet.

I have always been too old to be the target age range for any generation (currently 37, so I was 16-ish when Red/Blue released).

I played up to Diamond/Pearl and I love me some Pokemon Go but I don't have a favourite generation. Favourite Pokemon, yep. But every generation has at least a couple of mons that I think are ridiculous and stupid so I can't say any gen is better than the others.


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Gotta be Gen 1 for me. I am one of the purists that got into it at the beggining, found gen 2 facinating and then quickly got annoyed with how fast other mon came out and wanted them to get off my lawn.

Green tea but just barely as I'm not really a fan of either.

I'll drink either if they're decaf, but I'd rather have latte than cappuccino and my tea of choice is Earl Grey, hot.

Hot chocolate always sounds (and smells) so good, but enviably disappoints me for no reason I can work out. I always regret drinking it straight away afterwards and wish I'd picked something else. And I LOVE chocolate, so it doesn't make sense.


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Green tea is probably my favourite tea, hot or iced. We burn through roughly a gallon every two days of our brewed black iced tea, the husband and I. As for coffee, I prefer the beverages that add more and more milk, so latte is best, I guess. Add in caramel and I'm forever yours!

 

one thing we had recently in Philadelphia was a brown sugar coffee, which was naturally delicious. Beyond that, cocoa is a delight and only occasionally disappoints.

 

In short, I have a gambling problem and London Fog is best hot beverage.

Wake up. I set my alarm at the latest possible time for me to where I must get up to be able to leave on time without goofing around. So hitting the snooze would put me at 9 minutes behind schedule.

Hit the snooze button exactly twice. (The snooze on my phone is only 5 min).

Depends on the day. Mon-thurs is typically morning showering. Saturday is evening.

Every morning because without a shower I can't wake up.

But also frequently in the evening because I play ultimate 3-4 nights a week and don't want to go to bed stinky and gross.

Wake up, I don't trust myself to hit the snooze button. My exwife used to hit the snooze over and over and over, it drove me nuts.

New day, new question:

Different type of question today. You have the power to create realistic illusions. How would you use this power to help other (besides fighting crime)?

New day, new question!

Pick one to lose completely, and one to enhance to super-human levels:

1) Sense of Smell

2) Sense of Humor

3) Sense of Direction

Lose sense of smell and gain an extraordinary sense of direction.   Currently my sense of smell isn’t great anyways and often I have no good sense of direction so it would be positive entirely for me.

I already have no sense of smell, but I'll certainly take the sense of direction.

I also have no sense of smell (literally none), so it's easy to pick what to lose, my sense of humor. I have no need to know exactly what the balance between my 4 humors is at any given moment, that quackery having been replaced with actual ducks long ago.

As you can tell from above I already have superhuman levels of Humour, and I can always tell which way is forward so I'm not sure a Sense of Direction would be great for me either.... hmmm.

Protein bar and a dabble of greek yogurt, usually.

Fun fact: Vanilla Greek yogurt with a small spoonful of Peanut Butter and Jelly is REALLY good.
