2023.03.21 23:33 Spottyfriend Unbound Full Story Synopsis?

I recently wanted to start playing again after a long absence. I load up my save state and I'm fighting a Groudon I can't catch. I think I have 5 badges(?). I cannot remember what is happening in the story.
Is there a full synopsis of the story somewhere that I can read (beyond the basic premise, which I remember and is on the description of the hack on various sites)? Or would anyone mind giving me a quick blow-by-blow summary of events beginning to end? I don't mind spoilers - I'll stop reading once I recognise what's happening, and it'll be a useful resource to return to if I take another break.
I checked the obvious place - the Unbound wiki - but no luck. And did a bit more Googling, but couldn't find anything beyond the premise.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: for anyone returning to this thread in the future, I actually did find a pretty good breakdown of characters and factions on TV Tropes.

There is a spring Sale going on, so there is a separate thread to cover this sale, link here:


~ General Recommendations For Anyone Who Can't Decide ~

First off, I won't recommend big or famous games like Final Fantasy or Persona, this is more for lesser know, hidden gems, or just games where it's hard to find someone talking about them.

[Monster Sanctuary]

This is a solid game, everything in is polished and balanced to make sure you are having fun collecting new monsters and customizing your team through evolution/skill trees/gear and making the best in-sync party you can. Then you add the beautiful pixel art and animation, the challenging, yet not frustrating, platforming, and how the game makes sure you're getting a steady flow of new monsters, gear, and skills as you go through the game from start to finish, and you have a true gem.
If that wasn't enough, they released a free DLC that adds a lot more content and and a whole new zone that is bigger than any zone the game had, and it updates old ones, and adds new mods like a true randomizer and and built-in nuzlocke mode. All of that for less than $7 ? It's a crime not to get it at this point

[Tales series]

You can't go wrong with any of these, I personally would say start with Symphonia for the classic epic fantasy adventure with all the usual classic JRPG tropes. Or go for Berseria for a dark revenge story with a ragtag scallywag group of misfits grouped by fate type of deal. You can start with Vesperia if you want a main character with a chill personality and his companion is pipe smoking dog with. There is also the newly released and critically acclaimed Tales of Arise that comes with a free demo you can try before buying.
No matter which game you choose, this is a solid series if you want action combat, an anime shounen adventure story, with lots of party banter, side-quests, and post-game content.

[Ni no Kuni] Series

If you're looking for that great Isekai fantasy adventure feel, then these two games are where it's at. Fantastic visuals and great music, coupled with a great art style, a combo that is perfect for a chill and relaxed gaming experience. Especially when talking about the first game, with the help ofStudio Ghibli, they managed to make a truly whimsical world with that Studio Ghibli classic touch.
- Important Note: The games aren't connected story-wise, so you can start with any of them -

[Wrath of the White Witch]

For a the best fantasy adventure feel, while the combat is a hit or miss depending on your taste, don't let that stop you from actually diving into a true fairy tale world, this is the one with the better story in my opinion, so if you want more story than game, this is for you. Still it has a good share of gameplay, from raising and collecting Pokemon-like monsters, to learning and using different spells, not just in combat but for the overworld too.

[Ni no Kuni™ II: Revenant Kingdom]

This one focuses more on gameplay, with a Kingdom builder, Army battles, Heavy loot focus, and even character collector, this is the one to go with if you want more game than story. Still has the great music and he fantastical art style and setting. Add to that a lot of side activities like beating rare monsters, collecting cute creatures to help you in battle, and even going around the world to gather people to help you build your kingdom. You'll never be short on things to do.
Finally, both of them have beautifully draw world that is just a pleasure to walkthrough, made even better with the amazing orchestral soundtrack.

[SaGa series]

Both amazing games for the SaGa series, but for newcomers, it's better to start with RS3, it's closer to how classic turn-based JRPG functions while still retaining what makes a SaGa game. If you found Scarlet Grace to be too challenging for an entry title, then go with RS3. RS2 isn't a bad entry point but it's way less forgiving which may turn some people off the series.

[Romancing SaGa 2]

You played the part of an emperor, where make choices on what to build/upgrade and what weapons and armors to research. You expand your kingdom by freeing nearby cities and towns from the different evil oppressors (Evil Heroes). The more you expand your kingdom the more world you can explore, and the more classes, races, formations, gear, and quests that will be available to you.

[Romancing SaGa 3]

You choose 1 out of 8 characters (4 male/4 female), and play through their own special scenario. After finishing the short prologue, the whole world is open to you to explore and adventure through. Choices drive everything in this game, as is the usual for the series, that even side-quests will have different endings depending on how you choose to tackle or finish them. Find and battle the 4 Sinistrals, join world tournaments, recruit many of the unique characters around the world to your party, from a Wandering Warrior, to A sentient Snowman. Fighting army battles, and play the market stock mini-game. Collect the legendary weapons, unlock power magic, and carve your own legend.
Both games are remastered to have beautifully made pixel art, which is so good that they are alone worth the price of admission.

[SaGa Frontier Remastered]

Where to start with this one, while the 3D character models have aged badly, everything is remastered and looks great. with 8 characters to choose from and play through each of their stories, you'll always have something to do. Not to mention the long list of side-quests and dungeons to explore at your own will. Then you add one of the best soundtracks in the series by Kenji Ito and one of the best open-world universes you can have in a JRPG, where you can travel from world to world, from ancient Japan to a Fantastical world mystics and magic, to the inter-galactic port for spaceships from all around the universe. It's a game any JRPG fans should experience at least once.

[SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions]

You heard a lot about the series, but you never knew where to start ? well wonder no more. Scarlet Grace is one of the best entry titles to the SaGa series.
Everything is tutorialized, a long list of tips and strategies that will be given to you from the start to even the very late parts of the game, to make sure you are prepared for everything the game throws on you. Then you add that it has one of the best and most challenging turn-based combat systems out there, if you ever thought turn-based combat in JRPGs is too easy, this will change your mind as it what can be done with it. Add to that a fantastic soundtrack, and open-world with tons of quests and events to take part, and 4 Main Characters to choose each with their own story and characters to recruit, and you'll find this is a great pick.

[Valkyria Chronicles]

[Valkyria Chronicles 4]

This one is really hard to explain through words alone, but just in case, the VC series is a World War 2 military setting story, where you act as the lead of a squad and take mission to drive back the enemy. The story is drama heavy and the gameplay is tactical turn-based, but it's mixed with real-time third person shooter.
You can also make your own army by recruiting different types of solders, training them and upgrading their gear. From rifles to tanks, this is a game you have to experience to understand.

[Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin]

Wither you're a fan of the Monster Hunter series, monster collection games, or just someone who likes/loves a good and challenging turn-based combat game. Then this is a match made in heaven for you. A great game with lots of exploration, hunting, resource gathering, crafting new Cool looking weapons and armor from monster materials, capturing and fighting with monsters together, and then add being able to play with friends online and you have a really great game on your hand. The animations are great, the monsters are unique and each comes with different attacks and skills both in and outside of battle.
A real gem if you are a fan of any of the above, and has content to keep you playing for days if not weeks.

[ Dark Cloud 1 & 2 / Rogue Galaxy / Wild Arms 3 / Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits ]

These are all great PS2 JRPG ports that are sold for less than $8, and all of them are a steal at that price:
  • Dark Cloud 1 & 2: Amazing series, with a focus on crafting and building your town. An easy pick and a classic.
  • Rogue Galaxy: Another great game, where you play as a space pirate, and a monster hunter.
  • Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits: A very fun game in the Arc the Lad series, and don't worry, it's not related to any of the previous games, so you don't need any previous knowledge. You play the game from two different perspectives of the humans and demons.
  • Wild Arms 3: One of the best titles in an already amazing series. Famous for it's charming Wild west setting and interesting characters, and heavy with some of the most challenging puzzles you'll ever find in a JRPG.

As always, please do add your own recommendations, and let me know if there is mistake or if something was missing, and have a nice day.

2023.03.21 19:48 Pennywise_M I started a FEI (Full Ethical Immersion) run yesterday

I'm positive there must be many out there who've played through Unbound and many other Pokemon games whilst adhering to this mindset (more than a ruleset, really):
- No soft resetting for natures/IVs, nor for any other purpose that may benefit me strategically (I either accept the hand I'm dealt or I compromise with spending my resources to improve my situation. Additionally, I will not give into knowingly making poor decisions or engage in unfavourable activities supported by the possibility of save scumming when the outcome doesn't favour me) ;
- No relying on external literary resources to plan any aspects of my taming/battling (Unbound is bountiful in in-game information, so I won't be leaning on bulbapedia, smogon, or any other source to make my choices) ;
- No exploits (I will not duplicate items or Pokemon or abuse unchecked bugs or glitches that may benefit me in some way)
That's it.
DISCLAIMER: by NO MEANS WHATSOEVER do I condemn the engaging into all of the aforementioned actions which I chose to forego. I chose to do it this way, this time. I've played a bit of Reborn and bits of other romhacks/fan-made games, some Pokemon MMOs, a few of the official games and I can honestly say I've done a fair bit of these things myself. I don't believe that doing it in an offline environment should inherently be cause for judgement. Hopefully that will snatch the pitchforks off some of y'all's hands.
And btw FEI, I just came up with that. Lest you go looking for it around the internet. Don't be afraid to spread it though.
Call me an idiot, AMA, whatever.
EDIT: playing on expert difficulty. I feel that anything below this difficulty would potentially render this philosophy pointless in Unbound, as well as in many other challenging romhacks and fan-made Pokemon games.

2023.03.20 16:05 Abovearth31 Annihilape is peak character design. You can't change my mind.

He is probably one of my favourite Pokemon of the new games and here's why:
First of all, it has an impeccable offensive typing, ghost and fighting. A combo of stabs that is resisted by exactly one pokemon, Hisuan-Zoroark, who is ghost/normal, and this Pokemon isn't available in Scarlet/Violet so pretty much nothing can resist both of these types at the moment.
Also his stats are perfect for his role as a bulky sweeper,
So he's competitively viable with a good bulk making him hard to kill, a usable speed and an excellent offensive and defensive typing. Just very good stats overall.
Second of all, it's a ghost type. Ghost type is my favourite type and I'm biased towards these spooky bois so that help.

Third of all, his lore. He's basically a new special evolution of Primeape, the gen 1 pure fighting type Pokemon that's supposed to be a monkey.
The pokedex entries state the following:
"When its anger rose beyond a critical point, this Pokemon gained power that is unfettered by the limits of its physical body."
Secondly, the pokedex entry of Pokemon Sun version of his previous stage, Primeape, says this:
"It has been known to become so angry that it dies as a result. Its face looks peaceful in death, however."
What we have here is a typical berzerker archetype brought to it's logical conclusion, where it's wrath grew so much it literally died, thus finding peace, but the creature that rose out of that corpse was anything but peaceful.
There are two characteristics about Annihilape's appearance that are interesting, first the shackles it had on each wrist and ankle as Primeape are now shattered, he's even missing one on his right arm meaning he is literally and metaphorically free/unbound.
And second, while his face and eyes show he is obviously angrier than ever, his body language in the game is a slow and menacing stance very different from the frantic and fast paced battle ready stance of Primeape he almost look oddly composed, almost... Calm ?
Interrestingly when Primeape evolves into Annihilape, his passive ability “Anger point” turns into “Inner focus.” And again if you look at the shackles on its arms, you can see that it’s broken free of them. Almost as if to say that, in order to learn to live with its anger, it had to die.
So, to me, Annihilape did find peace, by learning to channel its anger into a spiritual focused power, "unfettered by the limits of it's physical body".
A kind of “rage sage,” if you will.

Mankey and Primeape were some of the worst designs of gen 1 to me,
Mankey had cat ears, a round body, a pig nose, weird cat paws, weird... Lizard (?) feets and a long cat tail and yet it somehow looked like a monkey.
Then Primeape arrived, got rid of the tail, made it slightly angrier and bulkier and added... Boxing gloves hands so you know it's a fighting type I guess ? But it weirdly didn't evn look like a monkey anymore ? Which is a shame when you see all the interesting stuff Game Freak managed to do with monkey designs in later gens (Infernape and Rillaboom for example).
But then Annihilape arrived and recontextualised the design by fully admitting that it doesn't look like a monkey anymore and making it look more like a monkey-ish spirit instead.
The floating mane allowed to get rid of the cat ears, the boxing gloves hand got "split" in two so instead of looking like a boxing glove, it now look like an actual hand but with 3 thick fingers (making it coherent visually with the feets), the longer fur got rid of the weird round body into a more vague body shape and it all look coherent. The final result is a creature that genuinely look sinister and intimidating.
I say "recontextualized" because, when you think about it, you can now imagine Mankey's line as a kid/baby monkey starting his life with slight anger issues, growing into a berzerkered adult that deformed it's body so much so that it barely even look like a monkey anymore (like some kind of abomination) only to die to find peace, accepting it's mistakes and itself and channeling it's anger to be reborn into the Rage Sage spirit I mentionned earlier.
This is a genuinely good storyline in hindsight. They took two of the worst Pokemon designs of Gen 1 and made them good.

2023.03.20 15:17 Spazzzh20 Sonic Retrospective

When rumors about a Sonic Adventure remake hit the internet I was pleasantly surprised. Sonic Adventure was the first game I played for my Dreamcast when I got it back in 1999. I thought of writing a review for it but after playing it again after all these years I realized that a review wouldn't do this game justice. I just wouldn't be able to articulate my feelings on the game and what it means to me with a simple review, so I decided to write a retrospective on it.
When I was a little kid back in 1999 I remember my first time seeing Sonic Adventure in action. I was at my best friend's house and he had just gotten his hands on the brand new Sega Dreamcast. At first, I didn't know what to expect but when I saw the opening Cutscene for Sonic Adventure everything I thought I knew about video games changed.
At the time this was one of the best looking games ever
The only other games I had ever seen in 3D at the time were Super Mario 64 and 007 Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64. Both of these games were great, but neither of them could hold a candle to Sonic Adventure in the visual department. This was the first time I had ever seen a 3D cutscene and it looked outstanding. Even after 20 years, the opening cutscene for Sonic Adventure still has so much liveliness and visual flair. Accompanying this is Johnny Gioli and Jun Senoi's Premiere song for a video game "Open Your Heart", and you have a wonderfully done opening that will stick with you for all the right reasons.
Now the rest of the game I, unfortunately, cannot say the same for. After I went back and played it for about a dozen hours I realized that it didn't quite hold up to my memories. It was by no means a horrible game, but it definitely wasn't the life-changing masterpiece that many people believed it to be back in the late '90s
I realized that I like many people viewed this game through rose-tinted Glasses and filtered all the flaws out in favor of only focusing on the things we adored about it. In order to elaborate I'm going to have to talk about the '90s again.
Back in 1999, I was part of a small clique of students who loved video games and traded game secrets on the playground. Keep in mind the internet sucked back then and games weren't as popular as they are now so even the game sites that did exist at the time rarely focused on giving out game secrets. There was this one kid who was subscribed to Nintendo power and had a six-issue Pokemon miniseries filled with game exploits such as how to capture Missingno.
He traded it to me for a VHS tape I recorded of Sonic Adventure footage showing him how the game looked and how to get past certain levels (God I miss the 90's). Anyway, Sonic Adventure wasn't the first game in the franchise that I played. I had the Sonic And Knuckles collection for Windows 95 which consisted of Sonic The Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles, as well as Sonic 3& Knuckles. I remember playing through levels like Ice Cap Zone in Sonic 3 and then playing through the 3D rendition in Sonic Adventure. It was so much fun. A lot of things about Sonic Adventure were fun. The characters weren't the most in-depth or well written, but they did a serviceable job of progressing the story. The story for its time was pretty ambitious, but the laughably bad lip-syncing and mouth movement accompanied by flat line delivery from certain side characters makes it hard to take seriously by nowadays standards.
The game could also be very glitchy at times. If you've ever played the game or watched YouTube walkthroughs than chances are you've come across a glitch where you fall through the game world.However, this happens rarely and when it does it can be quite humorous. The games biggest drawback for me though would be its ridiculously small hub world. The hub world in this game is basically a means to connect the game's action stages. While exploring them can be endearing for some I personally never saw them as anything but harmless. They don't hurt the game per se, and they offer a chance to find hidden collectibles and power-ups, but I never felt that there were enough of these to warrant taking away time from the action stages. I think what really hurt this game the most was the development time. Sonic Adventure was rushed to release date on December 23rd in Japan of 1998. Had the development team been given an extra year or maybe even just 10 months It most likely could have been much better. The more I think about a remake of this game the more I can't help but wonder if it is a good idea. There's a lot on the line here and a lot of fans will be pressuring Sega and Sonic Team to do it justice. However, even if the remake does turn out great, it just won't have the same impact as it did back in the day.
Games these days are capable of looking almost lifelike, and Sonic The Hedgehog is looked at more of a kids franchise that people don't want to take seriously anymore. I guess I'm just feeling nostalgic for a time in my life I won't be able to recapture. But you know what I'm fine with that. If this game does get remade it won't be made for me. It will be made primarily for all the people who love the new Sonic. Regardless of whether this game gets made, whether it bombs or succeeds, I will always have my memories of my childhood with the original Sonic Adventure. And who knows maybe 20 years from now an adult who is a kid now will be writing about their experience playing the new Sonic Adventure and feeling nostalgic about that game.

Potential megaevolutions

Pokemon Description
Aggron / Tyranitar 3 tap mega. Best effect for the competition, good for disruptions and combos
Pinsir / Charizard X (Shiny) / Rayquaza (Shiny) / Camerupt 2 tap mega. Good for disruptions and combos
Rayquaza Removes 10 icons that are non-dragon types. Too much rocks to shine and could waste the effect on non-supports
Gyarados (Shiny) / Gengar / Mewtwo X (Shiny) Removes itself. High combo potential, but can't clear bottom-row non-supports. Gyarados (Shiny) is SE

Cycle 1 results
Cycle 2 results
Cycle 3 results
Cycle 4 results

Final notes

The preferred choice is of course a 3tapper, with Aggron being Neutral. If you lack one of them, fallback to 2 tapper. Otherwise use a SE one, with Gyarados (Shiny) and Gyarados being the best.
Ground stages can be handled with double TC and Kyogre (Primal) is the perfect beatstick since the stage has rocks. Lacking both SE TC, you should rely on a neutral TC and other beatsticks, like Kyogre, Meganium or Ash-Greninja.
Rerun until you get a desirable score! Good luck everyone!

2023.03.18 23:10 Macedon_Scans Dragon Ball Heroes Rebunk.

Dragon Ball Heroes Rebunk.
I'll make this quick. There's a user who goes out of their way to respond to every post about complex multiversal Super Dragon Ball Heroes to redirect people to their SDBH cosmology debunk post, and I wanted to respond to it. To be clear, I don't care what you buy for Archie or SDBH or DC, Marvel, SCP or anything. You can consider SDBH wall level, it doesn't matter. I just felt compelled to make this post because the user in question is acting like a bit of an obnoxious jerk about it while their debunk post has a few glaring flaws.
The Afterlife is a higher dimensional realm according to the guidebook: Not really? All I could really get by translating this text is that it is higher than heaven and beyond human understanding. Regardless, the Afterlife at no point shows any higher dimensional properties (which the Chaos Force from Archie Sonic does, being incomprehensible and being seen differently depending on the observer), the Afterlife is just treated as being another realm, so even if the scan did claim it to be higher dimensional, it would be in conflict what is shown in the actual story, and the actual story obviously takes precedence. Before anyone brings it up, the exact same thing applies to the Kaioshin Realm. Nothing here really qualifies as higher dimensional.
I find something problematic almost imediately. I don't know whether this user did it on purpose, but they used fake text to debunk the afterlife guidebook scan. For whatever reason, the text they translated left out the characters pertaining to dimensions. This is the actual guidebook raw text on the afterlife: 天よりも高く、人間界からは窺い知ることができない次元を超越した天の国神々はこの地から世界のすべてを見おろしている.
Now here's the actual, official, English translation for it: "Higher than the sky, a dimensionally transcendental heavenly country that cannot be perceived from the human realm. From this land, the gods look down upon the entire world." Toriyama stated in an interview that it's normally inaccesible to living beings, and this is backed up by guidebooks. It is impossible to reach the afterlife from the living world through conventional means, and it's impossible to reach the Kaioshin realm from the afterlife through conventional means. The living world is also described relative to the afterlife as the temporal world (of or relating to the dimension of time, as distinguished from space). The narrator states that other world and the living universe are seperated by time and space. The idea of dimensions above time isn't foreign to Dragon Ball, seeing as Jiren was stated to have power transcending time (before you suggest that maybe it meant he could just resist time hax, I made another post responding to that). So yeah, I don't exactly see how the afterlife is 'treated like any other realm.' In addition, the Kaioshin realm actually encompasses heaven (the afterlife), so I don't see how "the same thing applies to the Kaioshin realm."
You could say "but dimension could be a synonym for a realm or universe" in response to the first afterlife scan, but the word "dimension" is far less flexible in Chinese/Japanese than it is in English, and Chinese/Japanese use the characters 世界 (world) or 領域 (realm) when naming alternate universes. The word used to describe the afterlife's transcendental properties was 次元, which refers to dimensions of math/physics in spatial contexts (次元解析=Dimensional analysis, 次元正則化=Dimensional Regularization, 三次元 =3 Dimensional, 高次元 =Higher Dimension, etc.). The only time 次元 is used to name an alternative universe is in abstract reference to a higher plane of existence, like how the higher planes of existence are described in Journey To The West. Oddly enough, not only is Dragon Ball lore directy inspired by Asian mythos like JTTW specifically, but the afterlife is described with fairly abstract language as a higher plane of existence itself.
That's it for canon stuff. Now, the overwhelming majority of people already accept that the SDBH multiverse has anywhere from countably infinite timelines to several sets of infinite timelines, so I have nothing to prove there. But before moving on, I wanted to link a blog post arguing that SDBH has uncountably infinite sets of infinite timelines based on many-worlds interpretation (a concept not only described in canon dragon ball, but named directly in an article on Toriyama/Toei's official dragon ball site where an astrophysics professor and long-time dragon ball fan was brought in to explain the mechanics of time travel in dragon ball). There's a very widespread misconception that all the dragon ball forums and youtubers perpetuate where canon dragon ball has only several sets of timelines based on the few time rings, which represent timelines. In reality, green time rings represent timelines created through time tampering, silver time rings represent naturally branched timelines, and the time rings exist in groups of several inside boxes from an endless room of time ring boxes that each supreme kai has.
The Crack of Time is separate from the dimension of time: Yes, but this doesn't automatically make it higher dimensional, it just means it qualifies as a timeless realm. This is certainly impressive, since it gives those who can move through it Immeasurable speed (Immeasurable speed is actually super consistent in Dragon Ball Heroes), but it does not make the cosmology higher dimensional. The Crack of Time is never directly mentioned to be higher dimensional or ever shown to have higher dimensional properties (which again, the Chaos Force does.)
Before getting into this, one thing I find interesting is that this user asserts that being timeless/unbound by time doesn't indicate transcending time as a dimension, when they said in another post that the phantom zone is outerversal because it was described as being "without dimensions" (as opposed to transcending dimensionality, which is the actual definition of outerversal). Anyhow, back to the crack of time's properties...
It's stated to be seperate from the dimension of time. The crack of time is further described as a space beyond time. Even following the complete destruction of SDBH's infinite multiverse, no damage to the crack of time was mentioned or demonstrated visually. Demigra stated that Chronoa and Mechikabura were sealed outside of time itself, and we see the seal in question (labyrinth of time) within the crack of time.
Most conventional time traveling mechanisms can't be used to traverse the crack of time. The crack of time contains the multiverse of infinite timelines in the form of small crystals. In all the SDBH media where the crack of time appears, infinite timelines appear finite and 3d. From the perspective of the crack of time, Fu's distorted artificial universe is smaller than an arm. This means creatures overall become larger than the aforementioned space-time continuums when entering the crack of time.
While within a timeline, even the highest beings in the cosmic hierarchy like the angels and gods couldn't affect the universe tree while it was located in the crack of time. For that reason, Super Shenron could only erase its roots but not the tree itself.
In ultra god mission, the narrator states that the gathering warriors have transcended time and space to reach the crack of time (超えた primarily denotes qualitative superiority). This is consistent with the official SDBH twitter page describing the tournament as super-dimensional. V-Jump magazine also describes this battle as super-dimensional. The battle is also described as hyper-dimensional. We know this place is the crack of time based on the description and the background of the place, which is the starry sky of the crack of time.
Now, let's talk bout the characters 超時空. 超 is a prefix meaning supehypeultra. As a verb, it means "to transcend," and it primarily denotes qualitative superiority. 時空 refers to "space-time" or "spatiotemporal." As an adjective, 超時空 translates as "super-dimensional" or "hyper-dimensional," and as a noun, it describes a "hyperspace." Now, what is a hyperspace? The term hyperspace originated in 19th century math texts in the context of higher-dimensional space, and is still used under that context by modern theoretical physicists. The folding model is a common explanation of the higher dimensional properties of a hyperspace, and it describes how the dimensional space below the hyperspace is distorted to converge distant points. Since the crack of time converges the infinite timelines as I explained above, it fits the folding model's definition of higher dimensional hyperspace.
Also, you can't argue that words like "beyond time and space" are too ambiguous when the crack of time's descriptors clearly denote qualititve superiorty, as I explained above.
Where are we so far?
Under conservative interpretations...
  1. SDBH has anywhere from countably infinite timelines to several sets of infinite timelines.
  2. The Crack Of Time transcends that infinite multiverse.
Here we have a low complex 5-D multiverse thus far.
Under liberal interpretations.
  1. Every macrocosm in Dragon Ball is 5-D since the afterlife dimensionally transcends the rest of the lower realms, some of which exhibit characterists of 4-D space-times (I can expand on that, if you want). There are other arguments out there for 5-D macrocosms, but I'm using this one since it's the one I explained before.
  2. Through many-worlds interpretation, SDBH has countably infinite sets of infinite timelines (as explained in the blog I linked before) with multiverses of 5-D macrocosms that amount to a 6-D multiverse.
  3. The Crack Of Time transcends that infinite multiverse.
Here we have a complex 7-D multiverse thus far.
Demigra is stated to transcend time and space: No, he is not. It is said that he "is at the end of the adventure beyond time and space." The "beyond time and space" is not referring to him, but to the adventure itself, which means this is clearly just more flowery language as a way to say Demigra is the final boss of a time travel game.
An adventure which took place in the crack of time, which I already addressed. Let me further contextualize Demigra's power. It gave him control over all of time and space, which allowed him to warp the time vault/shrine, which is a realm connected to the 5-D crack of time. His fight against the future warrior in the crack of time also caused the realm to crumble.
Xenoverse is said to include extra-dimensional worlds: There is really no evidence that this is referring to a higher spatial dimension. It could just be referring to them being disconnected from time (which would be consistent with them being located in the Crack of Time), or it could also be referring to them simply being branching dimensions created due to time travel. This statement is too vague to assume a higher dimensional cosmology from it alone.
I already explained hyperspaces and the crack of time. Something I should add though, is that in the ocassions where Japanese people will use flowery language to describe something as otherworldy, they primarily use the phrase 別世界, which is not the phrase used in most of these "super-dimensional" descriptions.
Goku was stated in a card to have power that transcends dimensions: There is really no evidence that this is referring to spacial dimensions. It could very well just be referring to universes, or just a flowery way of saying Goku's power is on a whole other league when compared to the other fighters. Saying Goku is higher dimensional simply because of a one-off statement such as this is really pushing it.
I can't say much about this part, since I don't know what scan they're reffering to, but I get the feeling that the word used for dimension was 次元, which already refutes the "universes" part.
Edit: So I found the scan, and this was the text it contained: 次元を超越した最強パワー, which translates to "the strongest force that has transcended dimensions." 次元 refers to the physics concept of dimensions (or in some contexts, higher planes of reality), and 超越 refers exclusively to qualitative transcendence. I guess I can't form a conclusion on this? It could refer to the dimensions in the game, dimensions as a whole, it could mean "hyperdimensional (超次元)," or it could just exemplify his extreme power (which isn't remotely mutually exclusive with higher dimensional power). Nothing I can assert here.
Beat's World views Dragon Ball as fiction: Yes, but this doesn't automatically make it higher dimensional. It is a misconception that simply viewing something as fiction automatically makes it higher dimensional, as there are multiple examples of "real worlds" that aren't really treated any different from any other universes, such as in Marvel or in Dark Tower. Beat's world has no evidence of being higher dimensional and does not show higher dimensional properties, it is just a regular universe in which Dragon Ball happens to be a work of fiction. Even base form Sonic has come to the real world, twice. "Real world" really doesn't mean anything unless there is context to assume it is higher dimensional, which Beat's World does not have.
I see 2 red flags right off the bat.
First off, this user said in a recent debate that the limbo realm in DC is higher dimensional since it views the creation beneath it as fiction, so unless I'm strawmanning them, their reluctance to approve of that criterion seems rather inconsistent.
Secondly, while people tend to abuse reality-fiction transcendence to wank Popeye for punching his animator, wank Saitama for drawing his own manga, or wank Spongebob for walking outside his comic, reality-fiction transendence is a core aspect of the dimensional tiering system founded by Vs wiki. It's not just some toonforce/4th wall thing that arrived out of nowhere, it's always been a possible qualifier for a higher dimensional space.
Anyway, the idea that Beat's world is just another universe where dragon ball just happens to be a popular work of fiction comes from Beat being described a distant descendant of GT Goku, and Xeno Goku suggesting that Beat's world is essentially a future version of his own. There are other references to Beat's world being akin to the saved future of the Dragon Ball GT's world. As the Vs Wiki page on reality-fiction transcendence explains, this is only a disqualifier if the "real world" in question also fails to demonstrate any kind of transcendence, the fictional characters are treated like any other character, and the fictional characters can enter it without becoming "superior" in notable ways.
Demigra had to warp existence and transcend space (reffering to SDBH as a whole) to reach Beat's world. Frieza had to be imbued with dark energy to reach Beat's world, which is consistent with SDBH villains requiring dark energy to transcend time and space (only demon gods, supreme Kais of time, and others comparable in power can normally access the crack of time). The denizens of Beat's world view active SDBH world as an arcarde game and manga. Upon entering SDBH, the Great Saiyaman 3 from Beat's world said the mechanics and characters shouldn't feel so realistic. SDBH characters and players within the game world are described as avatars.
Under normal circumstances, characters can't traverse between Beat's world and SDBH without dimensional transfer technology. Reaching Beat's world is described as overcoming dimensional barriers. In victory mission, Beat was more shocked with the Shadow Dragons reaching his world than he was with them threatening the DBH multiverse, implying that affecting his world is especially impressive. You could argue that the dimensional transfer technology is just standard teleportation tech, but if that were so, there's no reason SDBH character can't reach it with their own space-time manipulation as opposed to gaining the power to transcend space. Let's look at the Vs Wiki page for reality-fiction transcendence.
Qualifier: The real world has to view the other world as a sort of fiction, where anything that occurs shouldn't affect them. From Beat's world, the entirety of SDBH is contained within the arcade game and other visual media, SDBH characters and mechanics are viewed as unrealistic, the arcade characters they manipulate are described as avatars, and the act of affecting Beat's world is considered a surprising phenomenon.
Disqualifier 1: The realities are portrayed like parallel universes or otherwise as having just a finite difference in scale or having a similar nature. Beat's world demonstrably has features that disniguish it from SDBH timelines, as explained above.
Disqualifier 2: The fictional characters being able to attack the real ones without being shown to somehow have transcended their fictional world or having special abilities that allow it. Already went over this.
Disqualifier 3: The characters from both realities are generally being portrayed as comparable in power. This point has some merit, but you have to contextualize it. This means within their respective realms, the real world is portrayed as having qualitative superiority over the fictional one (going back to the whole "they can't be portrayed as parallel worlds" thing). Think about Apokolips and the multiverse. When New Gods downsize themselves through boomtubes to fight the justice league as avatars, they're roughly comparable in power. When the justice league upscales themselves to the Apokolips to fight New Gods, they can go toe to toe. But in normal circumstances, when mortals are confined to their world and New Gods are confined to theirs, the New Gods demonstrate a far greater capacity to warp the lower multiverse. When SDBH characters are confined to their own world (no transcending space jazz), Beat's world denizens demonstrate a greater capacity to warp it via playing the game.
The Japan that oversees the Dragon Ball Heroes card game sees it as fiction: Same thing I said about Beat's world applies here. "Real world" doesn't mean anything.
I already went over fictional transcendence. This Japan is admittedly lacking on scans and information, but from what we have, it not only monitors Beat's world, but contains it in fictional media the same way SDBH is contained in the visual media of Beat's world.
That's basically it for the user's debunk post. There are other structures in the SDBH cosmology, but that's outside of this post's objective.
Closing rant: I haven't been on this sub as long as certain others, but I have to take a break for some months. Debating has just turned so toxic. Everyone is outerversal now, everyone has a vendetta for no good reason... take what you will from my post, consider SDBH pebble level if you want. I don't care about proving a point, as I blocked the user in question. One thing I have to say though is that it's weird how high a standard Dragon Ball is held to in certain debates. If this were any other verse, I wouldn't have to type paragraps at a time for individual structures in the cosmology. Arceus was stated to transcend Pokemon's infinite multiverse, and that's enough for most people to accept him as low complex. So many fictional verses have "real worlds" that are mentioned in passing, and that's enough for them to be +1 dimensional (or often outerversal). I might be wrong, but don't most of XDive's higher dimensional arguments hinge on the game's depiction of our "real world?" On another note, why's there so much hostility between Dragon Ball fans and Sonic fans here lately? To be honest, it's mostly driven by Dragon Ball fans. It's all so pointless. I spent over 12 hours making this post. I skipped dinner and breakfast, and only took some hours to nap... and all for some power scaling debate? Lol, I've become a mess. I should be worrying about my undiagnosed OCD and the fact that I might go homeless in 2 months. Imma turn off the notifications for this post. u/itownshend17 and u/LasyTaco, I'll miss you guys the most (though we probably don't know each other).
Hope I didn't leave any spelling errors or unclarified/unrefined points.
Just be nice for crying out loud.

2023.03.17 17:58 rex52 Help Updating Pokemon Unbound

I made a copy of my save from the previous version 2.1.0 and renamed the new version 2.1.1 but when I open the new version (through the default GBA emulator) it has me start a new game. I am placing the new Pokemon unbound v2.1.1.1.GBA file in Miyoo-Roms-GBA and the save file (SAV) in Miyoo-Saves-CurrentProfile-Saves-gpSP. Both game file and save file have the same name. I’m also on the latest Onion os. I also did save the game in Pokémon center second floor. Can someone help me?

2023.03.16 16:12 reggren Anyone else jumping ship?

I'm in the process of moving stuff to pokemon home. I cannot stand this game anymore, not with how Niantic treats its players. My Hoopa Confined which I cannot transform into Unbound (because I wasn't actively playing at the time) will be much more welcome in Violet where it can actually do something.
More thoughts; this game is FOMO hell. Miss this one random pokemon from one event. It'll never show up again! Missed Apex Lugia or Apex Ho-Oh? Did you not get enough Primal Energy for Groudon and Kyogre? Too bad! Didn't want to cough up money for Keldeo while the ticket existed? Too bad! Were you not playing when Armored Mewtwo was around? Didn't have enough players to take it on locally? Too bad!
This game is a frustrating hell hole. I don't want to feel pressured to play a game I don't want to play because "hurr durr limited time pokemon". I don't care if it's rare. I want to play the game how I want to. Every boring or broken feature Niantic tries to force down our throats is insane. Elite Raids? Bust. Campfire? Niantic fucked up the launch. Guess you won't be able to coordinate locally. Don't feel like recording videos of playgrounds for Poffins? Banned from AR tasks. "Hey, trainer! We removed legendaries from research breakthroughs to move them into GBL rewards. Don't like GBL? Too bad!"
this edit is longer than the original post...
TL;DR niantic sucks balls and is speedrunning ruining this game, something something public park
Another edit because I never shut up:
I realize this post is really negative, but I kinda feel like how this sub has been for the past... while. I don't know, it's been like this. It's very justified though. I just wanted to say that I am aware at how frustrated and negative this post is. More negativity is exactly what this sub doesn't need. If you have fun playing this game, go ahead! Have fun, and more power to you. As much as this game is frustrating me, I am aware this is not the case for other people. The point of this post was not to say that you cannot enjoy the game. This is not an attack on other players, it is me venting my frustrations towards the game and the company who makes it. I don't want to see anyone having any flame wars in the comments.

2023.03.15 20:11 YoshiBroshi69 Help with Dex (Please) Pokémon in return if needed

Hey everyone, i need help with a few mythicals for my Dex. Comment if you’d be willing to help. I need:
