I'm really disappointed that there was a Cocktaillon event here. I get that some people drink, but I do not think
that it needs to be shoved down people throats.

I'm really disappointed that there was a Cubone (Hylian) event here. I get that some people played Zelda, but I do not think that it needs to be shoved down people throats.

I'm really disappointed that there was a Tom Nook event here. I get that some people are shop keepers, but I do not think that it needs to be shoved down people throats.



Seriously... c'mon folks.
If you truly think there's reason why PH should not be openly welcoming to people of all identities and walks of life, you might want to ask if you're the bad guy in this story.
Honestly, of all things to get upset, uncomfortable, annoyed, whatever about - even if you are anti-gay or are genuinely supportive of the LGBTQ+ community and yet see this as superfluous - this is literally just a rainbow patterned butterfly pokemon from a made up game on a website about a made up game.

Live and let live! (Seriously, while I brought it up in jest, the cocktail pokemon "promoting" drinking to a large underage crowd really should have sparked more "controversy" than this...)

When you're that single user looking at all the drama going around in the outer-more-indecisive world fighting and quarreling on completely irrelevant stuff.
Whoever has done all that trash-talking about shoving food down their thoats and other peope's throats. We should just leave them alone by now. They're probably sitting in a corner and sulking over what they said. lmao
only resposible for what i say, not what you understand

Some haters need to learn that they're making fools of themselves. They're also quite amusing to watch.

If you do not have an Event Pass, no, they do not break your chain.

Whoever says that this event is "over the top" or "shoving down throats" get some perspective. When "Crazy Rich Asians" came out I literally cried because I FINALLY got represented. It's the same way how Islanders crazed for Moana. Ya, the LGBTQ+ community has been represented for a couple years, but think of how long they were berated and ridiculed. A little bit of attention doesn't harm anybody.

Everyone wants to be represented as who they are because they have been considered shameful and invisible. Please, keep an open-mind and consider other people's loves and what they've gone through.

Thank you.

Title: Thank You.

Thank You, Pokeheroes. Thank you so much for doing this. I have been having a tough time with being accepted in my family and seeing your blog post say that a game i love is accepting of who i am honestly put me in awe and brought me to tears. Not many companies or game are as bold and happy as you guys, so thank you.

Title: Next ones.

I have to say that I am now looking forward to additional events that will be designed to make people of other ideals happy. Now that the Queer Pride event is going, how long until a Military Appreciation event? I also look forward to one celebrating Heterosexual Pride. Maybe there can be one that celebrates Sharia Law and is a Scyther that chops off heads.

Well, that escalated quickly. From a rainbow colored butterfly to lopping off heads. How delightful! Gotta love the slippery slope. :]

And I might be alone on this but I really wouldn't mind seeing an event appreciating veterans. Though I'm pretty sure that's not what jarrodw81 meant by "military appreciation." Or I at least hope so since it was clearly implied as negative. ....But I probably shouldn't derail the discussion to that can of worms as well so enough of that.

So! The rainbow vivillon is cute as heck and we'll see how many my lazy gay butt manages to imprison in my boxes before the event is over. :,D

Just real quick, there's these things called non-alcoholic cocktails. Nowhere was mentioned that it was related to alcohohl. Neither in the Pokédex entries nor back then during the actual event distribution. (Back then, I even debated going with the name Mocktaillon instead [since 'mocktail' is the offical word for non-alcoholic cocktails afaik] but, to be honest and blunt with you here, that just sounded stupid. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ That, and the fact that 'mocktail' isn't very common anyway? At least I never see it used, it's always 'non-alcoholic cocktails'.)

for the people saying this should end soon or saying when is there going to be heterosexual pride or mocking this, this isn't for you and im sorry you're being petty but get over it. This makes people feel appreciated and you obviously have issues you need to sort out so just focus on that and don't attack the LGBT+ community who hasn't attacked you personally .

I love this event. I'm so happy that I'm playing Pokemon and showing support and pride. I've already gotten two of the pride Vivilons and I'm working on my third. I really hope I get it! :3
I hope that there's more of this later.

tbh I don't mind the event but I don't like having all this lgbtq stuff shoved in everyone's faces..
I'm not against any gender or preferences but like if we're not in a relationship do I really need to know...

I think the event is cool though, I'm bi and a rainbow vivillion is p neat

Title: Pride breeding

17 eggs later and have not hatched a pride event flapper yet, which now makes me beg the question: Are the pride bugs breed-able or have I been wasting money on that shady day care.
