Well, there is one leak I think is true even though Serebii doesn't confirm it because it has been accurate so far (the one about the starter evolutions). But otherwise yes.

eh, even a correct leak isn't confirmed 'til it's confirmed.

likely or not, I don't care too much 'til it's officially confirmed.

thats a fair point but when working on a celestial level like that there should be plenty of ways to blow up a moon sized station honestly (although star wars was always kinda skimpy on that)

examples im talking about: star trek- they made a solar flare launch out that destroyed a massive shipyard, had access to weapons to cause suns to go supernova (generations) had access to weapons that re-organized matter on a plaentary scale, subspace weapons (although banned) that basically would never stop, hell even accelerating an asteroid to the speed of light would annihilate the death star
stargate- used a wormhole to collapse a star and cause a supernova
andromeda- had literal nova bombs
battlestar galactica- had...um...nukes? damn they were underpowered....

but you get what im saying. putting all your eggs in one basket that could succumb to any number of astronomical phenomena or attack isnt that smart

The shipping chart, for your perusal. Some of them are very clever. In particular I enjoy PyrrhaxBlake being Pussy Magnet and GlyndaxRuby being Ruby Slippers. Even if I'm not terribly fond of either pairing, those names are absolute perfection.

they're all so well thought out.

and then there's Rubleck.

also, I haven't heard of half these characters. does shipping ignore even obscurity?!

Mobility in Medieval Plate Armor Armour You're not entirely wrong, but plate doesn't slow you much. It weighs about as much as modern day military gear, except it's spread out over the whole body instead of just dangling on your back.

From what I remember samurai armor is about the same weight. I could be wrong though.

#73 - securityexplain (10/13/2016) [-]
More or less. Its still the same materials, iron and leather aren't magically lighter in Japan than they are in Europe. Difference is that European designs are generally more superior simply due to having access to more and better resources.

Also, feudal Japanese armor tend to have less protection on knees and arms, so if you're looking at full set, technically they are lighter, simply due to the fact that they have less armor.

Samurai armor is heavier, and less good at protecting

Originally a type of lamellar design, it was good for absorbing blows without much force being applied to the soldier behind it, but it's not the best to protect against stabbing attacks. (katana was almost never used for stabbing, in fact it was rarely actually used in combat, spears were far more widespread )

Later examples, after contact with the West, included European style plate chestpieces, namely for the anti-piercing properties associated with tempered steel / iron.

Lamellar is normally much heavier, and Plate, much lighter. Tho Crusaders wore brigadine or 'Coat-of-Plates' as an oppose to full platemaile of the late Medieval era, which was normally slightly heavier due to the inclusion of Leather normally to stitch the plates to.

They wouldn't be that much slower, though. You're still surprisingly agile in plate armour.
I'd find the video of the guy doing cartwheels and shit in plate armour but I'm lazy.

At least this should kill it.

But we know better.
