Pokemon has official boards and it has led to some…fascinating discussions. Earlier this week, The Pokemon Firm formally launched new boards after a mushy launch in June. Whereas the boards seem like moderated by official TPCi workers, it wasn’t lengthy till people realized simply how bizarre a discussion board for a franchise that caters primarily to pre-teens may very well be. Inside hours of The Pokemon Firm’s official submit celebrating the opening of the boards, individuals have been posting about all the things starting from criticisms of varied Pokemon personalities to which Pokemon they have been most interested in. You’ll be able to try among the weirder posts down beneath:

At the very least among the points and decrease high quality posts might have been associated to the moderators both being asleep or having a lightweight schedule because of yesterday’s vacation. It seems that the Pokemon boards have been locked down sooner or later within the final day or so, as there isn’t any present strategy to submit both new threads or reply to current threads. The final submit was made on July 4th and there is been no official touch upon the boards by a member of The Pokemon Firm or its moderator staff.

With the pending demise of Twitter and Reddit because of poor choices by these firms’ respective CEOs, it could make sense that The Pokemon Firm is trying to carve out an area for its customers to speak about Pokemon and obtain immediate suggestions about Pokemon TCG Reside and different video games. Nonetheless, the oldsters who determined to open the discussion board clearly underestimated the shenanigans that Pokemon followers would get to if given the prospect.

It is unclear whether or not the Pokemon boards will re-open. Whereas posts asserting the boards are nonetheless up on the official Pokemon web site, the boards themselves are nonetheless locked with no clarification.
