    Glad to see Pokemon Go is keeping the Golden Girls relevant.

    Can’t really call peopel who top play this game nolifes, because to be very good at this game you must be pretty social and way too active outside xD

    Those names.. So painfully lazy, specially with Team Instinct. It has Treehouse’s seal of approval all over them.

    Shouldn’t the team leaders be the top players of the world? This will give the game some actual goals. Oh, I forgot it was pay to win. Carry on.

    More like pay to progress quickly.

    Thus no competition is possible without it becoming pay to win.

    Blache seems more original out of the three, but I do hope she is french because that’s a french-oriented name. Candela and Spark look like names hey haven’t thought hard about, but it does fit the leadership. I still see what you mean, though.

    Spark straight up looks like the guy from Persona 5 (don’t know any of their names, I’m generally avoiding info about it until I can actually play it) dressed as Yosuke from P4.

    I probably would care more if they were revealed 2 weeks ago or were already in the game at launch and not just left as silhouettes.
    Not sure about others, but it got pretty boring catching the same Pokemon and evolving the same Pokemon over and over just to level up since there was nothing interesting in my area or near my workplace. Power to everyone still playing though.

    Dunno about this “2edgy4me” shit, as you put it, but when you see these folks swarming over a place with their phones to catch something don’t you think “what utter fucking retards”? I think that’s the natural reaction.

    If all real females on the planet looked like those two, the human race would quickly die out from lack of procreation.

    Honestly, I’m surprised they even allowed the (supposed) females to show their faces. (Then again, considering how pedestrian and fugly they look, I think putting burqas on them would’ve been a major improvement.)

    I keep on asking…. What does it change?
    If the models and names change nothing and don’t impact the game, there’s no reason to give them names. We already had team leaders when we chose faction at level 5.

    The lack of breats point at guy. The lack of groin points at girl. I’m amusingly confused.

    It changes people’s arguments about Team Valor.

    Before, if you joined Valor, you were literally Hitler. Now? If you’re NOT on Team Valor, you’re literally Hitler.

    “Blanche” is the feminine version of “white” in French. If that’s a guy, he has one feminine sounding name.

    tf2 is still better than overwatch (although steam as been failing a bit the past few updates). Modded gamemodes, skeet shooting rocket jumpers, and funny taunts
