Hi there! Hopefully this Mastodon toot makes it to my new Bluesky profile. You can find me on Mbin, Lemmy, Mastodon @hitstun , Discord, Twitch, and other places.

The Story So Far

We started February 10 with Cyndaquil. He's now L9, get Ember at L12, and evolves at L14. We got the Mystery Egg but forgot to show Prof. Elm. Weeks later, the path was still blocked and we had to go back. Prof. Elm gave us PokΓ© Balls and we caught a L2 Sentret. We're going to Violet City now.

Today separates the noobs from the pros. I saw the trap coming after three turns and I was powerless to avoid it. Even abusing my research and my tier list to the max the whole time, it still came down to a 50/50 crapshoot to keep my streak alive.

There's been a number of people asking for a better way to discuss strategy since comments are hard to find, so a group was created and if you tag @fediplayspokemon in your comment it should boost your post to a common feed that you can follow

Oh no, you're right! We've already been to Mr. Pokemon and we already got the Mystery Egg last month! We fought our rival and then named him Butt. We backtracked all the way back to the lab but we forgot to actually talk to Professor Elm! We're stuck until we backtrack and talk to Professor Elm! Oh man, we've got to get a better way to talk strategy among ourselves.

@tom @pokemon
I like that GIF, but it skipped most of the Pokemon Center healing animation. We can see we only entered the Poke Mart once, found out they don't carry anything useful, and stopped.

Time to exit the shop, take a few steps left, and go north through Route 30. We can get some berries and a potion on the way to Mr. Pokemon's house.

Where'd Hitstun Go?

I’m OK! I’m mostly on Kbin and Lemmy and a little Mastodon and Discord. They’re like if Reddit or Twitter were general Internet services like email and not getting ruined by a dumb CEO. I don’t use other platforms much unless I’m checking on someone who only uses one platform.

Today's my birthday and people are visiting my old profiles today, so this post is for them. Family and work are keeping me plenty busy and I haven’t been keeping up with everybody else like I should.

@FloatingIsFun @ChatGPT Is it possible to start a thread on a Kbin magazine from a Mastodon account? My first attempt failed. I'm afraid to use my Kbin account because Lemmy thinks everything I post there comes from two hours in the future.

The Aquatope on White Sand site

Title: The Aquatope on White Sand poster

Artist: Yuki Akiyama

It's Kukuru and Fuuka from the P.A. Works anime Aquatope on White Sand. I don't know what an aquatope is, but I guess it's the part of an aquarium that you can swim around in if you work there. Looks good.

(Test w/Mastodon!)

Hello, Mastodon people! I have a Kbin account and I mostly use that now. Fedia.io is the second-largest Kbin instance, run by the founder of infosec.exchange.

The bigger deal is that Reddit is self-destructing much like Elon Musk Twitter. I don't think Reddit is going to recover from this.

So, I'm moving my subreddit into Kbin too! I'm not done posting floaty things yet! At least Fedia wants to fix their problems.

Oh hey, you're both in the middle of the Venn diagram where New York City and anime podcasting overlap. Have Turtleboat's fan art of Kiki's modern food delivery service in Flatiron. Enjoy! Everyone else, pick out the other Ghibli references.

CrystalForce & NutellaFrenchToast – The Concept of Plastic Love

Sometimes, SiIvaGunner's crack team of mashup artists goes beyond the memes and makes something that's really good on its own. This one combines Hideki Naganuma's The Concept of Love from Jet Set Radio Future, Mariya Takeuchi's Plastic Love from YouTube recommendations, and a few other songs. This was made for the final round of SiIvaGunner's King for Another Day Tournament, which DJ Professor K won.

I stupidly broke my streak yesterday, so today I had nothing to lose. I purposefully played the worst guesses possible based on my research, and I lucked out and got it in 4.

Here's my analysis of all 14,855 playable words. SLICE and RAISE are the best.

I'm getting weirdly consistent with this. It's like I'm synching up with the Wordle editor from the New York Times. Current streak is 25.

Optional Wordle play: research, skill, and dumb luck


I'm excited and honored to one of the hosts for the SIXTH TIME. I started working with GDQ at SGDQ 2020, but sadly the only run I hosted then is now wiped from existence because it was by the dude who played a spliced video during his run at SGDQ 2022. :(

I consider myself super fortunate to be able to work with such an amazing event and raise money for charity. This week's gonna be great.

And hey, I get to close THE AWFUL BLOCK!

Mastodon – Crack the Skye

Because it’s an all-time great metal album and totally not because I just joined the fediverse as @hitstun . My posts like this one will continue to appear in all the usual places for now. But, I’m not going to stay active on a site like Twitter when an idiot billionaire tears it apart and ruins it for everyone.
