Assuming your actual location on Earth, what would your team actually be? Given your irl circumstances- that is. What team could you reasonably achieve?

Magikarp Zubat Scatterbug
All the pokemon in Orre
I live in north-east Scotland, so I reckon we'd get things like Sawsbuck, a bunch of aquatic-mons, Pelipper/Wingulls. We're also famous for oil and quarrying, so rock, ground, fighting types galore.
Bumping with this ;3
>>37982409That's hard to say because it depends on what I see that day. Chances are I'd have two growlithe's (if my pets count), if not then lets see. Politoed/PoliwrathSwannu (the swan thing I forget its name)Whiscash or whateverWingull Diggersby/DugtrioPersianI guess that's about right, I'm sure there are tons I'd rather use I'm just not thinking about right now.
>>37982481Lore-wise, Scatterbug and Rattata can live in any region, country and etc.
I'm just waiting for the massive ball drop with no Mew in a Guyana region.

>>37982409This was pretty fun actually. I might use this team at some point.
>>37982481>>37982488Wingull-Pelipper would be common and great additions to anybodies team for any reason.

>>37982409>Aztec>Covering all of MexicoRetardCulturally speaking, the region that contained the Aztec/Maya and related civilizations is called Mesoamerica, and covers the bottom 2/3's of mexico and the Yucatan peninsula. The top 1/3 of Mexico is more culturally similar with southwest native american tribes, though it's sort of a mix; with it being called Aridoamerica and most notable SW tribes being in a specific part of it called oasisamerica (central america, in this context, exclusively refers to the tribes BENEATH mesoamerican civilizations, so past the Yucatan to colombia)Mesoamerica itself is further split up, usually into something like this (see pic related)- Central, which includes the modern day states of Mexico, Puebla, Tlaxcala, Morelos, Hiladogo, etc, and was ome to a variety of important states: Teotihuacan, the largest city in the americas during the Mesoamerican classic period, and in the top 5 or 10 in the world at it's height at 500AD, was there, and had far reaching political and cultural influence all across Mesoamerica, the later Toltecs in the early postclassic, and finally, was the seat of Aztec power, as it was where the aztec empire's core, ethnically Nahua cities were, during the latepostclassic, who, like Teotihuacan, had political influiuence far past central mesoamerica- Oaxaca/Guerrero: Home to a few cultures and civilizations, but most notably the Zapotec, who were one of the more notable civilizations during the preclassic and classical period alongside teotihuacan and the maya, and the Mixtec, who were around from the classic all the way to the late postclassic but were most promemniant in the early postclassic alongside the Toltec, when a noble named 8-Deer-Jaguar-Claw from a particular Mixtec city, got assmad at his ruling city's ruler for cucking him out of his wife/sister, and got blessings from toltec lords and conquiered and unified nearly the entire mixtec area into an empire1/2

>>37982747Where's Magikarp?Where's Scatterbug?
>>37982726>>37982409cont:>Gulf CoastThe gulf coast area has a long history in Mesoamerica. THe Olmec, the first complex civilization in the region, had thir origins here, and it was as such the most important place in Mesoamerica during the mid to mid-late preclassic (the early preclassic is before civilization comes up). THe olmec would be succeeded by the Epi-olmec, and evolution of their culture, and then the Classic Veracruz in the classical period, and finally, the Totonac and Huastecs during the postclassic, though how much the olmec/epi-olmec, the classic vercruz, and the totonac had to do with one another is up in the air>WesternWestern Mesoamerica is the most culturally isolate part of the region: Technically, it had it's own indepedent development of complex culture from the Olmec in the Capacha culture, but it is unclear how much this led and contrivbuted to it's city-states and empires vs how much came from influence from the rest of Mesoamerica. In any case, West Mexico developed slower, seeing fewer urban, state level cultures then the rest of mesoamerica untill the late classic/early postclassic, though there were a few before then (such as in Colmia, and some less then urban/state, but still complex ones like Teuchitlan tradition). In the postclassic, had a ton of scattrered indepedent city-states, and the Purepecha/Tarascan Empire, the biggest state in Mesoamerica after the Aztec and who BTFO'd multiple Aztec invasions>YucatanHome of the Maya, the Yucatan can really easily be divided furhter into the Lowland and Highland Maya or even further, as "Maya" is a huge broad category. While the Maya didn't develop into a true civilization till after the Olmec, either due to olmec influence or both devloping together, the Maya had been around since around 2000 BC, and this region is qas such the longest culturally congrous part of mesoamerica, since the Maya stuck around under native city-states all the way till 1697, when the last one fell.2/2
>>37982738Why?North Mexican tribes are culturally pretty clearly a mix between Mesoamerican cultures and US southwest ones: You see both Mesoamerican and Southwest motifs on their pottery, etc.
>>37982826Not included like many others, especially Bug Types. There just isn't enough room on the map, so I just put the ones I personally saw the most, or happen to be the most annoying (such as fucking Buzzswole).

>>37982744holy fuck is all that mustard yellow in Luzon really human settlement and urban?we have a fucking environmental problem
>>37982871If Pokémon were real, you've have to deal with Scatterbug, Magikarp and Rattata since they can pretty much anywhere on earth, lore-wise.
>>37982726>>37982835>>37982844>Gulf Coast is MesoamericaAztec and Southwest is separated for a reason- some of which you have stated.You dont actually think bayou country was Olmec, do you?
>>37982409That map should have the area between Muscovy and Asia Minor called Caucasus, the place between Guinea and Congo called Cameroon and a lot of the areas in europe can be combined, no reason there are so many compared to other areas.
>>37982486there's a disgusting lack of bidoof and sawsbuck in canada
Alberta, Canada. I go fossil hunting often.I'd probably have Kabuto / omanyte.
>>37982409Mostly insect mons, but there are quite a few rabbits, deer, hawks, and other things that live in my general area. Not too far from a power substation either which would probably mean electric types.
>>37982898I'm aware anon, but again I rarely see rats, I know they're around here, my dogs have brought me rats and mice before, but I don't see them very often. I see more wasps than I do butterflies and rats. Especially Magikarp, it's a goldfish, it may be everywhere, but I don't see fish regularly. Such as when I lived in Florida, I saw far more turtles, mosquitos, and gators than I did anything else. Also again, it's a tiny map with minimal effort, I can't stuff 40 bug pokemon on every square inch.
>>37982927Thats cool you have profession too anon
>>37982409I live in the city. Murkrow would be my shouldermon, Bisharp would be my ace, and I’d have 4 Scrafty robbing white folks for me.
>>37982927I remember years ago going to Drumheller. I'd love to go there and see the museum again.
>>37982942Rattata isn't a Rat. It's a mouse Pokémon species and Magikarp can live in any kind of water, even poison water.

Idk though I might go for a more chill lotad.
>>37982409American Southeast, so similar to Unova but a lot more plants and rain, more flowers, swamps, islands and mountains where I live specifically. I'm not going to speculate beyond that because it's a place not covered by a pokemon game, we see from Gen 1-4 that wildly different pokemon can live in relatively close places, so the pokemon in NC could have little crossover from thes in NY. Braviary is a must, though.
>>37982486Heh, that's pretty coolThey put a Venasaur in my little third world country
>>37983091So you’re saying olmecs went that far north? Sorry Paco- they didn’t.
>>37983042As a fellow Kentucky fag let me add to your list a bit. We have plenty of natural cave systems and the Appalachian mountains so we’re likely to find plenty of things like geodude, onix, probably roggenrolla too considering it’s in the USA along with unova. By that token we probably get woobat too. Mudsdale is a draft horse so we would have it on farms along with things like toros and miltank but if we’re talking race horses I imagine that’s most likely going to be rapidash. Esepecially if we get some kind of regional variant with higher base speed and a type more condsive to being ridden. We have plenty of fossil beds here in the Ohio river valley so cradily, Omanite, Kabuto are pretty safe bets. I don’t think we have many terrestrial fossils though. We have a shit load of lakes and rivers so just about any non ocean fish is likely to be on the table. We’d have a pretty sweet hook up on ghost Pokémon with the waverly hills sanitarium
>>37982747>Skip NC entirely for SCMan, those Antebellum and Civil War memories sure keep that place alive in people's minds despite its utter irrelevance nowadays.

>>37983210Are you being intentionally dense? I'm saying "gulf coast" in a mesoamerican context means the area marked "costa del golfo" in >>37982726 and >>37983091, which IS where the Olmec wereMy entire point of posting all this is to point out how the Aztec/Maya/Mesoamericans did not occupy all of what's now mexico at once
>>37982726It's apparently based on some shit from Pokemon GO or something, Paco.
>>37982835And through all that they never developed metal tools and stayed in the stone age.
>>37982486>>37982667No, THIS is how you fix it

>>37983437That's incorrect.They weren't "stone age": To begin with, they actually did develop Bronze tools and metallurgy. Secondly, and more importantly, the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron age aren't stages all cultures progress through linearly, they are merely names we assign to specific periods of Eurasian history; and because most people are familar with European history and development they assume that all cultures went through or were going through the same thing, which is incorrect.As an example, while the Mesoamericans had bronze, they usually only used it for ceremonial stuff, since they had a huge, readily available source of obsidian, which is way sharper then metal edges can ever get to begin with. And even Spanish conquistadors largely gave up their steel armor due to hot and humid the climate was: So if they lived in an envoirment where metal armor was too hot to use effectively, and already had a material sharper then steel, why would they pursue widespread metal tools when they didn't need the higher durability metal offered over obsidian, since there wasn't metal armor obsidian would shatter against?Also, in general, it's just fucking stupid to use the materials used for tools as the sole indicator for technological capabilities and advancement: A culture can be behind in one area but on par or ahead in others, and sometimes stuff isn't linear: You see some (but not as many as people meme about) regression in europe after the fall of rome, for example.. For example, for the Aztec, they'd stack up like this:>Stone age: Watercraft/Naval technology>Bronze age: Mathematics, Military organization, Economics, Metallurgy>Classical Antiquity: City Sizes (pic related) Political systems, Water management systems The Arts & Intellectualism>Ahead of 16th century contemporary Europe: Sanitation/Hygine, Medicine, Botany, AgricultureFor that last set of stuff they were ahead of europe at, see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1805201/
>>37982455Mittenbro here, I think all your picks would be achievable. I definitely picture myself ending up with a Gengar as well, what better place to find Ghost-types than the state that houses the city of Hell?My team would probably look like:>Squirtle starterA snapping turtle ended up in my pool when I was 10 and there are a billion turtles here>Gastly first catchI broke a mirror exploring a creepy old house with my best friend that following autumn -- this one is more personal than location-based, but I justify with the reasons above and it was a REALLY creepy house>Mareep second catchI went to a farm hand summer camp from ages 12-16, took care of many animals but a lamb named Pillows is the one I remember most fondlyAnd then a few 'mons just picked up from common animals around the state>Taillow seems like a pretty common bird for a waterfront area>Snover from any of the snow-coated pine forests that surround my home>Scraggy definitely would be catchable in the alleys of DetroitPretty happy with this team, could even catch a Crawdaunt or a Bibarel, and Sawsbuck would be all over the place in every season
i think the best pokemon would be in new zealand
>>37983613They produced bronze only as a show piece. They never adopted metal tools into actual common use, stunting their growth forever.>Your examplesThe 'ahead of europe' bit is complete bunk and you know it, the product of Victorian memes about their ancestors being savages. Your article is a bunch of cherrypicking and fluffing. More advanced in botany and agriculture? Only on their native crops, in their native environment. Overall the Europeans did it much better, and the whole fucking sanitation bit is founded on those 'they threw shit in the street and never bathed' myths that have been roundly debunked by everyone. And medicine, EVERYONE has herbal remedies. They knew nothing of old world anatomical and medical studies, that the Europeans had largely adapted from the Arabs and Indians, yes, but they had them. A fucking article is never taken as fact, and you need to take care to remember that. An anthropologist specializing in Aztecs is going to be woefully remiss when it comes to Europeans. As for size, who cares? Stuffing a bunch of bodies together doesn't mean shit for your technological development.
>>37983613I'd love to see some peer review on that link, it's written way more like an opinion piece than anything truly scholarly.
my parents definitely would have bought me a starter but I barely go outside so I wouldn’t have used it much and not caught anything else
>>37983613Lol thank you based history anon that's really interesting. I knew about the obsidian thing but didn't really consider how fuckin uncomfortable steel would be even if they had made it. Macuahuitls were noted by the Spaniards to nearly be able to slice the heads off horses which is pretty cool. But in general yeah it seems weird to pretend the aztecs were uncivilized when it's very clear they were and there was a lot of interesting shit developed by them. It was a brutal culture but it was not a primitive one lol.>>37983652Also should probably give explanations, Texasfag here:> TaurosDuh.> SandslashArmadillos.> NoivernTexas has the most bat species of any US state.> ClawitzerGuns and shrimp seems pretty Texan to me.> Rotom-MMowing grass I guess.> BlazikenIt's a farm animal and I feel you need a fire type for Texas.
>>37983684There's a difference between being in the stone age and being uncivilized, anon. One is about technological development, the other is effectively cultural.
>>37983656Actually, no, i'm not basing on the "europeans were dirty as fuck lmao" memes, i'm basing it on the fact that the Aztec and related Mesoamerican groups were some of the most autistically hygine obessed people in fucking history, And you pretty obviously didn't read it>More advanced in botany and agriculture? Only on their native crops, in their native environment.> And medicine, EVERYONE has herbal remedies. I said that on the basis of the fact that the Aztec had what was essentially a proto-taxonomic system for plant categorization, as well as the world's first true bonotanical gardens, True, as in, they were made not just for stocking herbs or for simple recreation, but for actual active emulation of specific biomes/ecological spheres, breeding, and research work. We have some surviving Aztec botanical encyclopedias as well. This also ties into the matter that, due to the lack of large domesticated mammals to use as foodstuffs, the majority of the Mesoamerican diet was crop based. So there was a much larger emphasis on caretaking for cops (complex agricultural canal/watering systems and water mangement systems in general were developed and advanced very early in Mesoamerican history relative to in eurasia: They went from their first cities to having full interconnected agricutlral canal-,resvoir, dam, and sewage sytems which tied into plumbing and running water in buildings in under 1000 years) and coming up with unique agricultural techniques (such as chinampas) as well as cultivars with selective breeding. It's not a coincidence that such a huge proportion of the world's most staple ingredients and rops today come from Mesoamerica. >>37983669Not sure I'll be able to give you precisely what you want, but let me reply to this other anon first. >>37983688No serious anthropologists or archeologists takes the 3 ages system seriously in reference to Precolumbian societies, and even for African and Far eastern ones it's really iffy:
>>37983688Honestly I'm just here reading I won't pretend to understand the minutiae of it, it's just cool to me.
>>37982445>France and Bongland don't existUnovan education hard at work.
>>37983699You said that on the basis of a lack of knowledge of European technology. You are clearly very obsessed with the Aztecs, but you continuously act Europeans were somehow technologically deficient. You clearly don't have the knowledge to make these comparisons. The Europeans did not study plants? Or have advanced gardens? They were not clean? They did not have cultivars? I mean hell, I'm not a botanist and I can point out how Europeans bread every brassica vegetable from the fucking wild mustard plant. But what you do know is that your Aztecs would never advanced to a European level, or beyond, without applying their metallurgy for anything but show.
>>37983699>>37983656Cont:>and the whole fucking sanitation bit is founded on those 'they threw shit in the street and never bathed' myths that have been roundly debunked by everyone. As I said, my statement was not based on this, but based on the fact that the Aztec, the captial in particular, probably had some of the most extreme sanitation practices on the planet untill germ theory became a thing.As the paper notes, the goverment had a class of civil officials whose job was to sweep streets and wash buildings on a dailyt basis, as well as to collect waste: There were toilets stationed in what were basically outhouses all along the city's roads, as well as in noble homes and palaces. some areas of the city likely had some degree of sewage systems, as we see underground pipes at the ruins of the main temple, but the outhouses basically stored the waste (some sources indicate urine was filtered down through layers of gravel and left to sterlize like modern septic systems, but others do not mention this; some also incidate at least some others expelled the urine out into the lake system via sewage lines rasther then storing it), which was then collected and reused as dye and fertliizer. Commoners were expected to be clean shaven, with washed faces and teeth, at all times, and bathed (via sauna like steam bathes, roots and leaves from specific plants were used to make soap) on a regular basis, while upper clases did so daily or multiplle times a day. I could go on and the article does, but bottom line it cannot be overstated the degree to which hygine was valued as a social norm.In fact, it wasn't JUST a social norm, but a cosmological need. You probably know the Aztec thought the world would end people weren';t sacrificed. What you may not know is that this ties into a wider metaphyical philosophical framework some of their philsophers and theologians worked with tinvolving something called Teotl, which is basically just Spinozan metaphysics2/?
>>37983735Again, you continuously make it clear you don't actually know anything about the Europeans. Many of their cities had people who collected human waste for usage elsewhere, there were entire industries built around it. The Romans had toilets, and a sort of outhouse was standard in the Middle Ages when space was available, otherwise there was a dedicated bathroom. They had sewers, many of them are incredibly famous like the ones in Paris. And you should know that Europeans bathed in public baths and private tubs, using animal fat soap. As for being clean shaven, amount of facial hair isn't a mark of true cleanliness, but style. Your whole bit is to wax on about things the Aztecs did, with the subtext of 'look at these things the Europeans didn't do', yet here just about everything you said was something Europeans absolutely did do.

Or maybe it's too eastern-looking?
>>37983735>>37983656>>37983699cont:Essentially, the idea is that everything in the universe/world/whatever is made up of a fundamental force of teotl, moving and interacting in different ways (there are outright specific mechanics as far as what sorts of teotl movement form and cause different things) to make different things and natural systems (the gods, in this framework, were not literal animate entities, but the processes and forces they represented, and thereby also teotl) In their creation myth, humans and the current world were made through the self sacrifice of the gods. In other words, teotl was being given up by natural forces to sustain and give form to the world and humanity. Sacrifices, by extension, are returning the teotl back by inverting it: The maize god, xipe totec, had sacrifices where people would be skinned, inverting the process of husking maize to feed people, to husking peopole to feed maize. In other words, it's keeping the natural balance of Teotl.in order.It wasn't JUST lack of sacrifices that cause teotl entropy. called: Tlazolli: Tlazolli also litterally meant "dirt" or "filth", both morally and litterally. The mere act of breaking moral codes, or leaving shit untidy or unhygineic, was thought to break down teotl the same way not sacrificing people did, but on smaller scales, such as causing misfortune.So they (or, rather, this particular view/framework some of their philsophers used, the layman commoner would think of gods as gods) litterally thougbht that not being autistically clean would break down the fabric of reality.>And medicine, EVERYONE has herbal remedies. They knew nothing of old world anatomical and medical studies, that the Europeans had largely adapted from the Arabs and Indians, yes, but they had them. And if you read the paper, you would know that it was not merely herbal remedies, but an empirical approach to medicine and treatment in general, whivch IS relatively unique for the time period. 3/?
>>37982409baltic are slavs?die.
>>37983848>>37983735>>37983699>>37983656cont:Studies have backed up that upwards of 80% of the medical treatments we have in Aztec herbals and medical guides would have been medically effective. There's also the matter, of, again, the bonotanical categorization and breeding going on was on another level here. And as the paper notes, there were outright state ran hopsitals., potentially with mandatory quarantines of sick individuals. Cortes and other Spainiards not themselves in their accounts that Aztec doctors were superior to those in Spain at the time.>As for size, who cares? Stuffing a bunch of bodies together doesn't mean shitBeing able to support a high amount of people in a single place DOES mean something, assuming the quality of life isn't dropping dramatically as population density goes up. Mesoamerican cities weren't just a bunch of people cramped in huts, they were urban metropolises: They had palaces, temples, marketplaces, plazas, gardens, roads, etc, with smooth stone and stucco/painted surfaces, murals, frescos, stuff like fine cloithes, pottery, and sculptures in public places and in higher quality residences, and as mentioned, there was a high degree of access to clean water, cleanliness, etc.Obviously, pretty much every urban, state society has this, but when you combine this WITH the exceptional population size, as well as the physical expansie of the city, Yes, Tenochtitlan is notable, one of the biggest in the world at thwe time, and it's not like Tenochtitlan was the only actual city" Teotihuacan was from 1000 years before Tenochtitlan/the Aztec, and was litterally larger then imperial rome in expanse, and had all of it's citizens living in well furnished, multi-room stone complexes, which had running water and plumbing, painted frescos, etc. Granted, Teotihuacaan is also exceptional, but even an average Mesoamerican city had like 15,000 to 20,000 people, putting it on par with early classical antiquity4/?
>>37983872>>37983848>>37983735>>37983699>>37983656cont:That being said, it IS worth noting that Mesoamerican cities tended to be laid out differently then Eurpoean ones: Europeans cities had a clear start and end point, with a dense collection of buildingside inside the bounds of a city, then a relatively clear cutoff where the city's walls were. By contrast, Mesoamerican cities, did have a dense urban core with communal structures, palaces, noble homes, markets, etc, which would be smaller then the total area of european cities of comparable total size, but then there was a suburban sprawl radiating out from the urban core, with minature cores of smaller temples, marketplaces, plazas, and then this sprawl would gradually trail off in density, and would extend for much further space then in european cities.In extreme cases, such as for at least some Maya cities (this is recent research based on LIDAR scans), this sprawl could extend out for hundreds of square miles, as seen in pic related. >>37983730I don't know why you keep projecting this idea that I think europeans were some backwards hicks or some shit. I'm not claiming that. What I AM claiming is that the Aztec's horticultural prowress and complexity, as well as their sanitatiojn practices, were particularly developed even relative to much of europe at the time, and to the best of my knowedge, that is true. No shit europeans developed tons of cultuvairs, but they did not have literal, damn near taxonomic categorizational systems, nor did they have true botanical gardens, nor did fucking 95+% of their diet come solely from crops: In fact, much of european botoanical science, and their bontinical gardens made then in the following ceturies is seriously considered to be partially informed by Aztec botanical encyclopedias and descriptions of imperial gardens by Conquistadors 5/?
>pokemon based on where you live thread>half of it is posts about natives
>>37983902>>37983872>>37983848>>37983735>>37983699>>37983656Cont:>>37983755Again, I am not claiming europeans didn't do those things. I am very much aware that the idea that they were going months without bathing and were smelly as fuck and shit is a meme: In fact, the idea that the Aztec followed the Conquistadors around with perfume/incense to hide their smell is also a meme: Rather, it seems to have been a general tradition duiring diplomatic and pother ceremonial meetings. At the same time, however, we know from Spanish accounts that by their standards, Msoamerican cities, ESPECIALLY tenochtitlan, as welll as the people, were more well kept then what they were used to in euirope.Yes, the romans had flush toilets,as did others, and yes, to an extent there was re-use of waste for dyes and ferltiizers in europe, But all of those things mentioned were not ALL done at once in a combined system/framework to the same extent, not to where it was a state managed insiuttional practice. I'll concede I don't know the specifics of how often europeans bathed during the classical and medivial periods, but I'm pretty sure it was not multiple times a week unless the person was doing dirty work. That being said, it IS absolutely my understanding that a lot of european cities were pretty poorly maintained when it came to their streets, trash, garbage, etc, and stunk pretty bad, which was obviously not the case in Mesoamerican ones (I forgot to mention that Aztec cities had strategically placed gardens in communal spaces, in open air courtyards in noble homes, and around temples to mask smells, and even used aroamtic wood in construction for this reason), and that, while some cities had sewage systems, many did not and just had waste thrown about. If my understanding is incorrect, feel free to drop some resources
>>37983669Okay,, so I don't have time to give you a whole bunch of other papers for each specific claim, but I'll do my best to drop more papers when UI have them on hand.Firstly, I don't know why you say it's like an opinion piece: It's clearly an actual formal scholararly paper, you sure you looking at the right thing? Beyond that, there's really nothing in that paper other then references and citations of other studies for stuff like specific estimations of the amount of waste produced etc; that's not fairly common knowledge when it comes to aztec horticultural and public health systems. I hate to just handwave it, but stuff like streets and buildings being washed daily, bathing being regular, etc is like, mentioned everywhere, and while the horticultural system stuff is less common, any actual place talking about aztec botony or horticulure does mentuion this stuff.I could easily drop like 5-10 links with the same information (such as http://www.mexicolore.co.uk/aztecs/aztefacts/aztec-pleasure-gardens for the botoany stuff), but I doubt you'd take it any more seriously thent his. So instead, i'm going to suggest you just check out some primary sources. The citations in the paper already list them, but you'll wanna check out:- Bernal DIaz de Castillo's a True History of the Conquest of New Spain- Cortes's Letters- The History of the Indies of New Spain by Diego duran- General History of the Things of New Spain by Bernardino de SahagunThis is a very solid, core set of primary/secondary sources. They aren't perfect: Cortes's letters are him trying to justify his actions to the King of Spain, so he often paints himself as a victim/noble, doing things to help spain, and making the natives look worse, Bernal Diaz is trying to glorify himself similarly, and Diego Duran and Sahagun are both friars, who, while heavily leaning on native sources, still have their own biases and the native sources do as well. 1/2
>mfw I live in the most ecologically boring country in EuropeWe got small rodents, small birds, small birds of prey, fucktons of gulls ands pigeons and corvids (except ravens), small frogs and toads, non-venomous pussy adders, and standard fare insects, at least none of the dangerous ones.Oh, and deer, foxes, hares, rabbits and boars, so that's nice. And wolves have been invading from Germany.
>>37984000at least the pussy isn't venomous
>>37984010Correction, the adders are venomous. They're just too much of a bitch to bite anything that isn't some kind of mouse. I've seen one in the wild twice and both times they immediately fucked off.I also think we have some lizards but I never saw any in the wild.
>>37983669>>37983980cont:I sadly don't have suggestions for you for stuff to read that goes over the errors and bias issues that do exists with them, but I DO have suggestions on which translations to read for Bernal Diaz's A true History and Cortes's letters.For the letters, the Morris 1928 translation is the more traditional translation, while the 1986 revised edition of the 1971 translation by Pagden is a more modern translation and is unabridged. For Bernal Diaz's,The main english translation of the original guatamalan document is the Maudsley 1908 translation. There' s an abirdgement of this, but it cuts out everything after the surrender of the last Aztec emperor, excluding the aftermath, the torture and death of said emperor, and the camapigns against other political states in the region.So if you DO want an abridgement rather then an unadbridged, the best one so I have heard is the 2008 version by Carrasco, which keeps those missing chapters and also includes some essays. As far as Duran and Sahagun's works, the translation options are far more limited, and pretty much the least expensive english versions you can find on amazon are what you want, though a complete set of Sahagun's work, even for the cheapest copies, will still run you a few hundred dollars, so you are best off just buying the specific volumes that have the info you want, which you can probably figure out yourself by checking here: https://uofupress.lib.utah.edu/?s=Florentine+CodexAnyways, i've uploaded the Carrasco's translation of Bernal Diaz, and the Padgen translation of cortes's letters in this rar, and i've always thrown in a few studies on various mesoamerican water mangement shit: filedropper DOT com SLASH mesoshitI also run this mega full of resources with another anon, though the collection of stuff that rar came from i've yet to upload to the mega, but it'll get on there eventually: https://mega.nz/#F!vtQ2EIKK!Z7R8gN5vTsfalKDn18jOmw2/2

>>37982409Depends on what the Galar Pokedex looks like, but let's make a team that's so stereotypically British it hurts for me to look at. I tried to lean towards Pokemon based on animals or themes commonly found in the UK, but I could have branched out to pick dragons or lions if we were going for animals that are common in culture and mythology.Granbull and Swanna are kind of obvious choices. Roses are national plants and unicorns are the Scottish nation animal, and Rotom was meant to represent our urbanisation. Ladybirds are a plague here and Ledian's cute so.
>>37982409Murkrow, Lycanoroc or Growlithe, Whiscash, Zigzagoon, Yanma, and Feraligar I guess? Most of my native animals are fairly poorly represented. There's no real raccoon and no opossum at all for fuck's sake.

For China i think that Emboar and Infernape are a given due to the designs. Rayquaza would also work because its based on a Chinese Dragon I believe. From there Swanna for cranes, hitmons for martial arts, Rotom for the factories and technology of cities , and Grimer/Garbodor/Weezing for pollution Emboar/Infernape, Rayquaza, Swanna, Hitmonchan/Hitmonlee, Rotom, Grimer/Garbodor/Weezing

>>37983902Are you retarded? The Aztecs were definitely advanced...for savages. Don't forget the Aztecs werent some ancient race, they're relatively recentand when you compare the time lines the Europeans we're significantly more advanced Aztecs were savages compared to the Romans, never mind the cultures that came after.
>>37987900Glad you approve
>>37987935Do you have any knowledge of history? Like at all? The Aztecs were not savages, they were an advanced culture that created many architectural marvels.

Any monkey pokemon, trubbish line, unfezant line
>>37987981Pretty sure the only thing advanced about the Aztecs was compulsory education for all.
>>37987999Sacrifice is a common motif in I would almost say most religions. The Greeks sacrificed humans and animals, the Carthaginians sacrificed infants, the Hindus sacrificed people. The Chinese, Romans, and Egyptians didn't sacrifice people but they did sacrifice animals. Not sacrificing living things to ones gods is an oddity not the standard.
>>37982409whatever is available in Galar I suppose
>>37988164Not in the 10th century!! Sacrifice is common place in all cultures yes but is never a part of civilised culture.
>>37988097The entire city of Tenochtitlan-Tlatelolco is a marvel in of itself. Two separate cities built in the middle of a lake that linked together to form a capital the size of Paris, fed by man made aqueducts and floating gardens.There's also the multitude of massive pyramids built by the regime and its vassals, often on top of older pyramids.>>37988235The Greeks and Hindus weren't civilized? Aristotle and Ashoka weren't civilized? What of Hammurabi or Hannibal or Hatshepsut? Sacrifice and civility are not mutually exclusive concepts.
>>37988288Firstly Hindu is a religion not a culture, but considering the Government had to intervene with modern Sati and horrid caste systems I'd say the Indian culture could very easily be argued as uncivilised. And Greek human sacrifice is still debated, though best case scenario they 'Sacrificed' the condemned. So please tell me how lottery sacrifice of children works in a civilised world?
Peru :Starraptor (we are always made fun off because of a rumor that we eat pigeons)Sceptile (clearly a pokemon that would enhabit the amazon rainforest)Tropius or ludicolo (these two pokemon seem accurate to inhabit the amazon rainforest as well)Mew (apparently mew was found in South America as stated by Dr Fuji and the first pokemon movie itself)Ho-oh or fearow (these two pokemon seem to resemble a condor which is our national bird)Any of the lake legendarias as they seem to resemble some pre Incan cultures of northern Peru

>>37988361I was using "Hindu" as a term to separate the non-negligible Islamic and Buddhist populations that entered the picture later. The quality of the Vedas and the level of architecture, culture, and science that came out of that sub-continent is proof enough of civility. The sati and caste systems for all of their horribleness are not unique, there are parallels to the sati in the Chinese emperors having members of their court killed when they (the emperor) dies. And the Caste system is paralleled in the Confucian idea of roles on life and the Japanese 'kegare' concept (the Burakumin), along with the Segregation/Apartheid/and Ghettos implemented by Europeans to separate minorities (blacks, Jews, Roma).Ideally child sacrifice would never occur, but in societies that it is considered religiously important, its under the Utilitarian ideal that the death of some is saving the lives and guaranteeing the success of the many. Again wrong but justified under the religion and culture.
>>37988571Respectable points however at this point in the debate I think we need to define 'Civilised culture' a bit further. I believe it's highly dependant on comparable cultures, as in once one civilisation has hit a certain point past ones become uncultured. But getting back to your points, the Vedas although shows obviously how intelligence doesn't mean they're civilised. A king/emperor/royalty having their vessels killed is nothing similar to a 'civilised' society expecting the matriarch to kill themselves when the patriarch dies. And with your last argument are you saying the segregation of people in the 20th century was civilised then? Because I'd argue it was an act of uncivility in the face of a civilised nation. ....You've utterly lost me now, I can't see how you can argue UNCIVILISED idea of greater beings controlling the acts of nature as an acceptable reason for murdering children. If this was 500BC I'd be able to consider your argument more. But that brings me back to my first sentence.

>>37988703>>37988833Saying that if one culture hits a certain point all the others 'behind' it are uncivilized doesn't quite fit with how the ancient world worked. If I lived in Greece and you in India 1500 years ago, our knowledge of each other would be limited to 'this area may or may not exist'. How can you compare cultures that developed in comparative vacuums to each other, what is considered good in one culture can be considered the greatest sin in a another, a quick example is that in America 'leaving the nest' is considered an important part of growing up, whereas in cultures based around the family leaving one's parents is disrespectful. Or how in some nations one’s career and work is paramount (China/Japan/Korea), but in some nations work is secondary to the other aspects of life (Italy/France/Greece). which in these two examples is civilized and which is uncivilized? The concept of 'being civilized' is reliant on context.In 200 years, we’ll be looked back on as poorly as those in the 1700s are today, would you consider us uncivilized in any true way? Many would say that the 1700s even in developed areas bordered on being uncivilized with the constant war, oppression, and disease – the whole structure barely functioned. I brought up segregation and the like in order to show like you said that even civilized nations can have uncivilized traits, just because the historic Indians instated the Caste System does not mean that the society as a whole isn’t civilized, just as 1900s America was obviously civilized in spite of its treatment of the lower classes of society. The ancient Chinese were arguably the most advanced society in the world for most of History, does their treatment of the Royal Court make them uncivilized compared to less advanced but more morally correct countries? I don’t believe so.In the case of Child sacrifice, it quite literally was 500BC in many cases.
>>37989144This is why I felt the need for us to define our argument more, I realised we've strayed far from the original argument which wasn't 'are the Aztecs civilised' but that they are 'Savage' which for ease of debate we've simply argued culture as 'Civilised' which I don't think truly representative of the original point. Civility is indeed a progressive thing much like education, the smartest people of 2000 years ago are on par at best with college inductees. Were the scientists of that time stupid because we've progressed? No not at the time... But now? Yes. Because that how progression works.You seem to have gone deep into the argument of culture, which isn't comparable as I see it, culture is an algorithm of realities and acceptances that dictate the culture, being 'Uncivilised' directly effects culture but they're not the same thing.
Northern France so :MurkrowTalonflameSeelMiltankChikorita ( Chicory is local speciality )Onix ( because coal and mines are big part of history Onix would have been very convenient )
>>37989144Also you're saying Ancient. Aztecs weren't ancient the Spanish Aztec war only happened 500 odd years ago, a time where many many nations were much more advanced and less barbaric. Hence calling them Savage Though I'm well aware that theres a huge argument to be had about being 'savage' when Aztecs would focus less on killing and more on capture where as the modern 'Civilised' people of spain killed men woman and children.

>>37982409I think I answered this sort of question. I live on east coast of the US, very close to NYC. There'd be some decent water mons, mostly crabs, frogs, and rare turtle like pokemon.

Tons of squirrels If I were to travel a little, there'd be a lot of deer, gophers are fairly common too. Also, a lot of stray cats.(Common: Meowth, Purrloin, Fletchling, Pidgey, Pachirisu, Deerling)(Uncommon: Patrat, Pikachu)(Rare: Zigzagoon)Also a lot of power plants and chemical plants, so electric and poison would be common.(Common: Shinx, Magnemite, Elekid, Voltorb)(Uncommon: Grimer)(Rare: Pikachu)There are also parts of where I live that have actual farms with farm animals like what you'd expect, chickens, cows, pigs, sheep, horses.(uncommon: Miltank, Mareep, Mudsbray, Spoink)(extremely rare: Torchic, Tepig, Tauros)Very popular spot for migrating birds. Bald eagles have even been spotted here, though the usual suspects are Canada geese and seagulls(common: Wingull)(uncommon: Swanna)(rare: Braviary)In that case, realistically speaking, seeing as I'm usually pretty busy (meaning I can't have rare mons), have younger siblings (can't have overly aggressive/dangerous mons), and can't really afford to deal with mons that require a lot of upkeep, I'd probably only have these mons:Shinx: docile, loyal, great companion, independent cuz it's a catPidgey and Fletchling: having birds is always nice as they're singing and flitting around plus relatively easy to care forPoliwag: cute frog mon that'd be pretty common and Poliwhirl is one of my all time favorite monsPachirisu: this one is maybe, since squirrels are super hyper and probably wouldn't fit in well with a cat like Shinx.

>>37989287>>37989382>>37989524I’m back, ended up passing out from exhaustion as soon as I was able to sit down. Civility is progressive, I do agree. However, the progress is only comparable between either the same nation at different points in time, or between cultures that are connected to, and influence, each other. You could compare the Chinese to the Mongols because they knew about each other and influenced each other, same for the Romans and Gauls, Persians and Scythians, and Swedes and Sami. One of these groups is more civilized no doubt, but the progress they make can only be compared to those that they are near and connected to. If we compared the Guals to the Mongols, the system would be unfair to both parties because neither of them ever even learned about the existence of the other. The advances one made would never be learned by the other.Say I wanted to compare the civility of the Romans and Han Chinese, they both existed at the same time historically so they should be easy to compare. The problem with this is that the amount of information that the two largest land empires in the entire world had on each other is shorter than this post. Say that the Romans or the Chinese discovered the steam engine and the metal-working required to use it. Is the other empire suddenly less civilized because they didn’t make progress they didn’t know existed? Not immediately, in my opinion.
>>37989287>>37989382>>37989524 2/2I believe that one empire only becomes less civilized in comparison to the other when they learn about the advances of the other. Before Europeans landed in Australia I don’t believe the Aborigines were necessarily less civilized than them. The Aborigines were the cutting edge of Australian civilization, that was simply how civilized the society got. But, after the Dutch and British made land fall and the natives and Europeans made contact, then we could compare the two and say that the native Australians were less civilized than the invading Europeans. I used the word ‘ancient’ because that’s the level of Old World Cultural development that the Aztecs and other Meso-American groups achieved. Why this is, is unknown there have been many books written about this that all come to different conclusions. I don’t fault the Meso-Americans for this, just as I don’t fault the Ancient British/French/Germans or their equivalents for not achieving the development of the Romans or Greeks or Indians or Mesopotamians. Isolated groups tend not to develop as much. I don't believe that civilizational development and civility are linked either, many brutal cultures (Assyrians) achieved great development, while morally 'correct' cultures have ended up achieving nothing.
South texas, rio grande valley. Pidove because i go dove hunting a lot. Maybe in pokemon world you go hunting with pokeballs. Rotom fan to keep me cool and dey my house after hurricanes. Durant because theres a shit ton of fire ants. Maybe an exxegutor because palm trees, obv.
Based off of animals I used to catch and bring home. Plus pets.
>>37982409Uh what kinda pokemon would be in Rhode Island?
>>37996219Only small ones.
>>37989962>NW WyomingOH MY GOD BASEDdesu I wish there was a region stretching from Idaho Falls to Riverton East-West, and from Bozeman to Hoback North-South. Great for like a "wild" region without much civilization. Not too many water types unfortunately.IMO, I would think that in the PC you'd have any combination of Honchkrow (obvious crow tribe reference is obvious), Nosepass or Probopass (Nez Perce), Ampharos or Gogoat (Shoshone and the bighorn museum), Basculin (mfw cutthroat trout and the fish and game nursery near Jackson), Abomashow (mountain men), Shuppet (Casper Bowl ahahahahahah shit joke), and Camerupt (the caldera)
>>37993533Yeah, they live in any body of water.
>>37996019if you're in the rio valley, are there any water types you're able to use?
>>37997023Im very close to the gulf, so maybe a clamperl or something. I cant really think of good gulf of mexico pokemon. As far as a river goes, its pretty much resacas. So like dragonflies and crawfish and stuff.

>>37997038hmm...Sharpedo? The Gulf has great biodiversity when you consider large pelagic fish. Depending on where you live and how many oil rigs are in the area, you might live around a spot with lots of whale sharks (the rigs force greater krill/plankton density somehow, i'm not sure of why) so anything like that works too.

>>37982409Seems reasonable for a Great Lakes region trainer
Heliolisk because of all the lizards around here, potentially Grubbin because a stag beetle laid some eggs in my compost heap, Hoothoot because there are owls nesting in my barn, and any Pokemon that you could find in farm land
pittsburgh town is a smoky old town... solid iron from mckeesport down
Fellow Great Laker here. >live in one of the snowiest towns in the country so there'd be a lot of ice types>there's a lot of mines here for copper/metals too so steel types would probably be abundant>live near the Paulding Light so had to include a freaky ghost type

>>37998286i think you mean Houndoom my guy
I live somewhere between Shalour and Geosenge city if you 1:1 Kalos to France, so litterally the stuff on Route 12
>>37998351Houndoom is based on a dobermann + thylacine. Midday-Lycanroc looks more like the local coyotes than any other Pokémon.
>>37987851Nope, Varesotto. But...you need to chill, dude.
Midwestern anon here.>Sawsbuck>Pachirisu>Durant>Swanna>Diggersby>CryogonalI see deer, rabbits, squirrels, and ducks/swans outside of my house, and around my neighborhood (town, as well) on a regular basis. I put Durant in because I needed a bug-themed pokemon, and a steel ant felt right for the midwest. Cryogonal is a no brainer since half the year is winter here. I almost put Lycanroc due to the near the northern border, but I passed.
>>37999185You would also get the Doduo line (kiwis), Popplio/Spheal line (fur seals), Chatot (various parrots), and whatever lizardmons you want to equate to tuataras (I would go with Jangmo-o).
>>37999365Jangmo-o would fit New Zealand perfectly, considering it and its evolutions take inspiration from the Maori and their haka
>Rhydon>Excadrill>Sandslash>Wingull>Bisharp>TaurosGuess my state
>>37982409Well, we have the New Mexico whiptail, so presumably Salandit's an option. Also a good number of foxes and coyotes, so maybe Fennekin? Definitely have Deerling, since elk and mule deer are all over the place. Not sure what's most appropriate to being where the Manhattan Project took place, though.
