I'm sorry but it's quite sad you've gone to the trouble to include the accent in 'pokemon.' I wasn't even aware there was one.
I object to people going to the trouble to spell pokemon with the accent but without the little TM sign and spelling naive without the umlaut and so on. It shows they have more respect for pokemon than general grammar. Also on this page people have positioned the accent in two separate ways which means some people have gone to a lot of trouble just to be wrong.
On that note, my phone spells naïve with the accent automatically. (: As for the rest, I don't know that the accent in Pokemon (phone won't accent that one) is necessarily a grammatical error or an issue of copyright infringement. So that being said, I apologize for my rudeness. I must have been thrown at a wall, too.
I'm so bummed someone ruined the singing before I came in =( But OP: You're an idiot, dude. You like Pokemon, but lied to impress a hot girl. Pathetic, just pathetic. I can 100% guarantee you that you can like Pokemon and date a hot girl. My previous two girlfriends loooove Pokemon, though I think one of them only got back into it because of me. And they were both incredibly gorgeous. My current girlfriend doesn't like Pokemon, but she likes that I do, even though I'm almost 21, just like I like that she loves Beauty and the Beast the way she does at 25. How long did you expect that relationship to last, if you can't even be yourself around her. I'm not saying geek-out and go all poke-nerd on your date, but at least don't pretend to find it ridiculous as well, when you obviously don't.
i wanna be the very best. like no one ever was. to catch them is my real quest. to train them is my cause... Pokemon! I will travel across the land. teach pokemon to undertand the power that's inside... pokemon! gotta catch 'em all! lmao. this is what having 4 little brothers foes to you!
JT, my boyfriend and I are eighteen and we play Pokèmon still. We even talk on the phone while playing just too how far along each other are, or just to talk about how we miss the original series. People can say we have no lives, but that's them. It's something else we have in common, big whoop. But the OP is sad for making fun of someone humming the theme song, then letting his date find out he had the ringtone. Grow a back bone OP.
@41 your advice is misleading, it makes people think that everyone will like them for who they are, which is false. more correctly, you shouldnt bother with those who dont like you for who you are. but then you may end up with very few friends depending on who you really are...so a balance of being yourself and being who people want you to be is necessary. to go insulting or talking badly about those who do something you enjoy doing though...thats not a good balance.
Seriously! Why make fun of someone for it? They like it, it's all good. Shit, my boyfriend had a Pokemon ringtone when we were fifteen; good memories. It was fun to watch and play as a kid, no problem in remembering the good old days. (: OP: Kudos on the ringtone, don't let her get you down. (:
138: Actually, beginning a sentence with a conjunction is acceptable in this case. It's called an anapodoton, and its admissibility is a matter of style rather than absolute rule. In casual text like this, anapodotons are perfectly fine. But I wouldn't use them in any scholarly articles. Of course, none of that excuses 47's typos/spelling errors and lack of proper punctuation.
*Guy walks in* "I wanna be the very best like no one ever was!!" "Haha what a loser" "I know right!" *Phone starts ringing* "Don't talk to me....."
