I don't care about this guy or his dog. Did Game Freak write this to appeal to the Good Ol' Heckin Doggo crowd? Around the second or third time when it seemed like he was doing something shady off-screen, I thought maybe he'd have the other legendary and was scamming you to get the herbs for it. Like maybe he'd turn out to be a villain of some kind. But no, he's just a whiny bitch who needs his emotional support animal to perk up. Awful.
>>52324819Hes the only good character in the main cast
>>52324819You hate him because he’s very human?
>>52324819Please stop breathing
I feel sorry for people who've never had a bond with an animal. Their lives are always poorer for the lack of experience.
>>52324819If you had absolutely zero emotions about his dog story, you have a dumpster instead of a heart.
>>52324887>>52324898You expect retards here to have proper emotions? Most faggots here had stunted development and don't even understand the human experience. They're just shitposting automatons.
>>52324819>Hating a character for being a good person and not an edgelord
>>52324819It would be more impactful if it was an actual dog instead of a Pokémon. I can't take Mabosstiff seriously.
>>52324819>I thought maybe he'd have the other legendary and was scamming you to get the herbs for itI thought the same thing, would have preferred that arc
>>52324819>I wanted him to be a villain but instead he has emotions and loves his dog WTF REEEEEyou, and I mean this sincerely, need therapy
>make three dogmons>make three rivals>only one rival has one dogwhy
>>52324819based, I fucking hate dogs and I am sick of pretending that I don't
>>52324819Wow, so awful that a person cares about and wants to save a friend thats important to them.Arven is the only good character among the main cast. You don't have to care about dogs to empathize with him and his goal. I'd rather hang around him than Nemona.
>>52324819>series about raising and bonding with creatures has a plot where a character takes care of a creature that he has bonded with
I like him because he starts as an asshole and bonds with the MC over shared interests, very relatable
>>52324819Does everything have to have some big fucking plot twist? Can we not just have a character who wants to save his dog for fucks sake?
>>52324819I actually like his storyline more than compared to the others. And you can skip the cutscenes if you really can't be bothered to deal with his story. It just doesn't appeal to you.
>wtf what do you mean he's not an edgelord twist villain and just wants to help his pet that's suffering??too obvious bait op, no (you) for you
>>52324819You're a dumbass
>>52324819>good old hecking dog crowdYou answered your own question. This thread proves it, any criticism of the stale and overdone "le dog sick :(" story can be dismissed by saying "umm sweetie if you didn't feel sad that's cos you're stunted and have no emotions, get therapy"
>>52324819Wait.. so you don’t care that he’s down to earth, but you’re upset he didn’t turn out to be some shitty pixar twist-villain?
>>52325169>get therapyI agree, Arven should have gotten therapy
>>52324819Look at all the redditors in here seething because you insulted a dog lmao
>>52325026>he doesn't want to violently "battle" with NemonaLol gayArven is a decent character though. I don't get normalfags saying "I cried so much when I saw his sick diggo" but his character is a nice change of pace for Pokémon.
>>52324819He's great. Best character in the game.
>>52325178IndeedFor being fatherless, not for having a sick dog
I like the part where every titan opens up an identical cave so they can reuse the cutscene assets
>>52324999(You) are ment to have one since all three have one variety of dog/canine mon I guess? I didnt use any since I didn't like the typings all that much
>>52325169I don't even like dogs, can't stand them, and I like him. You just lack the ability to empathize with people.
Arven cared more about his dog than his dead parent. Shit character.
>>52324819Remember Lillie? Remember Marnie? Remember Emma? Well here they are again, but this time it's a dude.
>>52325262but muh daddy issues
>>52325262>person cares more about somebody that's been by their side their whole life than a deadbeat who barely spent any time with himYeah, anyone would. You shouldn't give somebody a pass just because you're related by blood.
>>52325227Don't forget the pokeball half submerged in the floor
I said this in another thread but, am I the only one who was hoping Mabosstiff would die? It could be a moment of growth for Arven who has issues with being abandoned by his parents where he learns to let go. That despite all he did to save his dog, it was just his time to go.
>>52324819This might sound like a big revelation to you, but most normal human beings like and empathize dogs.
>>52325289Arven and his parent lived together and because Arven couldnt keep an eye on his fucking pokemon, they had to leave. Arven is literally at fault for every bad thing that happened to him.
>>52324999They REALLY wanted to give Penny an all-Eevee team to appeal to the Tumblroids who play these games.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbbTdtZXAusHis route has one of the best soul-tier OST. You just suck.
>>52325273except not annoying this time
>>52325317well guess what, not OP, but I am not most people, I fucking hate dogs, I felt worse for the miraidon who was effectively kicked out of her own home by an agressive cunt/murderer, muhbostiff can take a hike>>52325332oh dear, you're right
>>52325317Some people just really care about making themselves look cool for internet strangers.
>>52325332you sound like you were abused by your parents and blame yourself for it
>>52324819Dude had absentee parents and was left starved for affection most of his life. His dog was the one thing that he was able to bond with, because it loved him unconditionally. It got wounded saving his life from the same Pokemon that murdered one of his parents, and he had more of a connection to it than to said family member because, again, absentee parents who didn't give a shit about him for his whole life. Why wouldn't he want to try to save the one thing that ever returned his love?
>>52325332Arven's other parent literally left because of how obsessed Sada/Turo was with their researchThe professor fucked up first resulting in a fucked up home dynamic leading to a child fucking up (which is normal for kids to do desu)
>>52324819I was entirely expecting him to have Miraidon, since I had Koriadon, and after the 2nd Titan it seemed like he was feeding some unknown Pokemon. Was a little disappointed, there was no need for such secrecy about his motivations if he was just healing his dog, but I also didn't hate that he just wanted to heal his dog.
>>52325404>I was entirely expecting him to have Miraidon, since I had Koriadonthat's how it should of been, but no, they had to shill the dumbass dog
>>52325262One parent just leaves after he was born and the other decides he needed to do his research instead of raising his son. Of course the kid's going to care more about his constant companion than someone who's not been there for him. It makes perfect sense for him to be so attached to the dog.
>>52325371Lemme guess, you're Chinese?
>>52325371>hermakes sense that a waifufag is like this
Face it, Arven is a bad character.
>52325457Shut itYour bait is shit
>>52325371>I felt worse for the miraidon who was effectively kicked out of her own home by an agressive cunt/murderer,It lost a territorial dispute, either it won and kicked the other out, so it would have been the bad guy, or it got the boot because it was weaker. There's no reason to feel bad compared to a dog trying to keep his owner safe.And >heryou just want to fuck it, so opinion discarded
>52325498Go cry about how the doggo made you sad, faggot
>>52325445no, just some American that could have ended up like muhbostiff had the overly aggressive dog we had when I was a kid not been on a chain>>52325457dogs being shit doesn't make arven a poorly written character>>52325517THE FUCKER KILLED TURO, FUCK YOUR TERRITORIAL DISPUTE BULLSHIT
>>52325332>>52325371>give a kid a pokemon never meant to be seen by anyone>kid pop pokemon out>this cause parents to take back the pokemon and never come home againThis is just shitty parenting
>>52325536>THE FUCKER KILLED TURO, FUCK YOUR TERRITORIAL DISPUTE BULLSHITUnironically, quit seething and think rationallyThe AI itself Turo jumped in the way to try and save the legendary. That's like jumping in between two lions fighting.
>>52324819I don't care much about dogs either due to past experiences but I enjoyed it
>>52325536>THE FUCKER KILLED TURO, FUCK YOUR TERRITORIAL DISPUTE BULLSHITWhy the fuck its ALWAY THE GAY BARA FAGS?
>>52325566*AI itself said
>this threadLooks like OP was right. These are exactly the types the character was written for.
>>52325371I hate dogs too, but I still can empathize with someone who cares about theirs>herOf course, now it makes sense
>>52325566if it was Arven and not the other Miraidon Turo was defending, would you still feel the same way?>>52325571>seeing the value of turo's vision makes me a barafag
>>52325536>THE FUCKER KILLED TURO, FUCK YOUR TERRITORIAL DISPUTE BULLSHITTuro/Sada got in the way. If you see two lions fighting and decide to jump between them when the one you were rooting for starts losing, of course you're going to be fucking dead.
>Itt: white women
>>52325536>just some American that could have ended up like muhbostiff had the overly aggressive dog we had when I was a kid not been on a chainSorry to hear your parents are retarded. What breed was it?
>>52325629can't remember, I was six or eight at the time
>>52325371I also hate dogs but that doesn't mean I take pleasure in seeing them hurt or avoid helping when I can, I just don't personally like them and wouldn't want to own one (mainly cause I'm autistic and they're too energetic/dirty for me). You can dislike and even hate something without resorting to harming it or not feeling empathy when others suffer because of it, if I meet someone whose dog is ill of course I'll feel bad and try to help if I can, just like I'd like them to do if my cats were ever in the same situation. Disliking something doesn't mean you have to turn into a sociopath.
>>52325636>that doesn't mean I take pleasure in seeing them hurtdidn't I just say I'm not the future school shooter in the OP?
>>52325520I haven’t played the games fag, but I think I’d much prefer his arc to be about his poor dog than be a shitty twist villain.
A lot of pokemon fans are legit sociopaths who feel more for an animal than they do for humans
>>52325617>Itt: white women
>>52325677>you can only feel empathy for one or the other, not bothUh huh
>>52325693Can anyone photoshop Jasmine's model into this?
>>52325713lizardfuckers are a whole different breed of stupid
People forget that Arven is genuinely an asshole to anyone not named Mabosstiff or the MC.
>arvenfeels bad>mabosstifffeels bad>sada/turolol deserved>pennylol deserved
I just think the whole bloodline has obessesive issues that make them all awful that's what makes the family hot.
>>52325610>if it was Arven and not the other Miraidon Turo was defending, would you still feel the same way?If it were Arven? He wouldn't have been fighting the Miraidon for territory. Hell, Turo jumping in front of Miraidon because it was getting btfo'd only makes me wonder if he'd have done it for the other Miraidon if the roles were reversed.
>>52325729Good, I want more characters that aren't just haha happy all the time.
>>52325746Then I have the right to criticize him and call him a dog loving faggot.
>>52325736Arven has an awful hairstyle that made me think he was the twist villain. He wishes he was as hot as his mom and dad.
>>52325729kids who didn't have loving parents tend to be like that
>>52325739>the other miraidon always has a modest naturethat bitch is a tool of war, she'd probably attack arven too if he looked at her the wrong way
>>52325757That's like, your opinion anon
>>52325729Make sense given his history with his parents.
>>52325759>>52325768Not every kid wears their parental problems on their sleeve. And having those issues doesn't give you a pass to be an asshole either.
I’m with op the emotional support put your dog in clothes and bring it to Walmart or on an airplane crowd is cancer and fags
>>52325756Hey I'm not the one of the guys complaining about that, I'll like him and you can do you.
>>52325777It doesn't give him a pass at all, but it explains why he's like that>>52325788>put your dog in clothes and bring it to Walmart or on an airplanei hate that people try to normalize that shit
>>52325797Angsty kid taking their problems out on others doesnt make them a deep character.
>>52325813Alright, what makes a deep character, anxiously awaiting a link to your work in progress novella novel or visual novel im sure it’s riveting stuff full of unique well written deep realistic relatable characters
>>52325813Who tf said he was deep? It’s just good and relatable.
>>52325843>what makes a deep characterSomeone who handles adversity and tragedy better, and doesn't take it out on others.>>52325853It's not
>>52325853>Haha this character hates Mondays too! So good and relatable!
>>52325227>one parent left>the other is obsessed with their work and never around>the one thing that been around for him is sick and he wants to save itWhat the problem exactly? It’s a down to earth side plot with a happy ending. Plus it helps your cover legend in the end so win win
>>52325879Because they wanted him to be like Silver ig
>>52325872Local anon learns people relate to singular traits
>>52325860>It's notGive an argument or fuck off>>52325860>Someone who handles adversity and tragedy better, and doesn't take it out on others.That's a Gary Stu
>>52326000Keyword, better. Lashing out at people who don't deserve it because you have a tough time doesn't make you special or a deep character.
>>52326022No but it is fun to watch so I like him
>>52324819Weeb hands covered in Eeveelution fluff wrote this post
Everyone screams about Nemona and the MC but honestly Arven feels more like the love interest than Nemona does.
>>52326415He's the only one that got to hold your hand so
>>52325879>Happy endingI dunno, it was pretty fucked up to me desu.
>>52325371miraidonfags not even once
>>52328143I think they were talking about side quest ending with Mabosstiff and not the whole parent thing
>>52325197Wanting to fuck Nemona doesn’t mean you want to hang out with her.
>>52325416Oh? They’re shilling your mother?
>>52325635You don’t remember the breed of dog that almost ate you?Mine was a mutt bred to kill pigs. He was called Satan. They had another dog called Bruiser. When they fought the owner just blasted a shotgun so they went into Pig Hunt mode.And this in Australia so you want dogs like this when hunting pigs because razorbacks are fucking massive.Didn’t make me hate dogs, the experience just taught me dogs aren’t all gentle huggable morons full of love. My neighbours letting their dogs bark all fucking day made me hate dogs.
>>52328433They're posting a screenshot from an Area Zero log and talking about how your box legendary won, so sounds like the entire thing. But I wouldn't call it down to the earth either.
>>52324819Appealing to your humanity was never going to work, you retarded insect. Non autismos usually sympathize with someone trying to save their pet.
>>52324819It's only natural for a closeted homosexual like yourself to hate an open and proud gay man like Arven
>>52324953>/Vp/ is one person Anon, not everyone here is as sad as you are.
>>52324819>something happened>it wasn't what I expected or wanted and I'm so upset about this that I just HAD to make a thread to vent my frustrationThis is advanced autism.
>>52329241the "people" on /vp/ aren't as unique as you think they are
OP, you might genuinely be a sociopath.
Am I a little bitch for getting emotional at his story quest? i struggled with an ill pet a couple years ago and it hit close to home
>>52329358half of the board right now is the tinkatink vs corviknight forced reddit meme, the other half is cropped porn threads, but it's ok when /vp/ circlejerks over cringe because.. it just is ok?
Arven is the sociopathCares more about a furshitter than his own mom
>>52329398I mean the dog never left him but he still wanted to talk to his mom like he even held on the slightest bit of hope until the end.
>>52329398His parents are both sociopaths so it's not his fault.
>>52325371Oh no... do people who hate Arven just hate Arven because he's mean to the ride dragon a couple of times?
>>52326415>>52326451that and him calling you his best friendHe's definitely not a rival. I guess he's really just like a Lillie character, but less intrusive.
>>52330576How would he feel if I went and called his stupid mutt a brute? Exactly
>>52330705Anon... anyone with eyes could see he's just tsundere for the bike dragon. He even started making extra sandwiches so it could have some. By the end of the story, he's forgiven the dragon and realizes it wasn't really its fault.Are you autistic? Honest question.
>>52324819He's a good character and his storyline is the best one in the game. Seethe.
>>52328304How could you say no to this?
>>52324819least sociopathic cat enjoyer
>>52324819Don’t care about his dumb dog either, but Pepper is cute, so it’s okay
>>52325371Speaking as someone else who also wants to fuck miraidon, you need some sensitivity training or something idk
It'd probably be more emotional if the whole thing wasn't centered around MAGIC HEALING SANDWICHES
>>52329398His mom was fucking around in a crater instead of actively being there for her only son. Of course Arven prefers his Masbosstif to his mom, his Masbosstif didn't leave him to dick around in a crater.
>>52324819His daddy issues were warrented
>>52331405hating dogs doesn't make me a sociopath or in need of sensitivity training, fuck off, stop acting like I went up to Arven and said "I hope your Mabostiff fucking dies"
>>52324819I would brutally murder his dog in front of him and then take a shit on it if I was in the Pokemon world and I am being "deadass"
>>52331510My problem is that mabostiff has such a shit design, they literally created the saddest looking pupperino they could think of for muh emotional story, it’s a species that only exists and was specifically created for an NPC and his story when they could have used any previously existing dogmon for that like arcanine, manectric, mightyena or lycanroc
>>52331547>new gen>just feature old gen mons again people like those right?penny is enough kanto wanking for the entire game. don't see what's so different between him and say, stoutland, who is also just a big dog, and personally I like mab's design more than the stupid corgi from last gen. in fact I like all the dogmons this gen, even the breaddog who I expected to dislike.
Would've had more impact had it been an actual dog. I've literally had mons rended through space time and a quick visit to Nurse Joy fixed them up so to expect the player to suspend disbelief long enough to think the dog was just so heckin hurt was honestly just a sad attempt at some emotional storytelling.
>>52331547It looks incredibly pathetic. might be my least favourite pokemon just because game freak tried to shove it down my face
>generic ass dog pokemon #37 is so hurt he can't be healed at a pokemon center
