I mean, most of the time it’s goes through him and turns into an egg, I don’t think many black holes do that.
Except for the times when it doesn't (Super Mario World, the New Super Mario Bros. games, that time he ate Luigi in Power Tennis, Super Mario Galaxy 2 where he produced Star Bits and Super Mario Odyssey)...

It's why he dies in water.
THAT HAPPENED ONE TIME!!! My boi has had no issues in water virtually anywhere else...

Yoshi is actually a cyborg creature containing hundreds of nanobots that convert matter into energy (or eggs) for him to use.

I thought it was just the chemical composition of the water surrounding Isle Delfino that is harmful to Yoshi’s, he’s fine in waters of the other Mario games.

Becoming power moons is what makes them special, Zinith!
But you can only do it through Yoshi eating them

Plus, the Chef Toad outside DID say Yoshi loves to eat them, meaning it's normal for him to do so...

Edit: Scratch that, I just looked it up because it's been a while since I played SMO. They're the same "Berries" found on Dinosaur Land. That actually reaffirms Yoshi's impressive stomach power

Oh god, Power Moon Berries are an invasive species that have spread throughout the globe.

And yet the countries do nothing!

Look at my post again. They're the same berries that were in Super Mario World and Super Mario Galaxy 2, and THEY produced different results. Meaning the production of Power Moons through this method is all up to Yoshi's whim :yoshi:

I will die on this hill

Don't even get me started on my opinion of FGO's gacha, mi friendo.

At least in Granblue you're not forced into whaling for the good units and f2p is actually very viable for end game content. :dr^_^:
Being a FGO, Azur Lane and Dokkan player i can safely say FGO´s drop rates are some of the worst i´ve experienced. Good thing AL actually treats me nice, with all the drops and free stuff. I actually dont even know why im still in Dokkan, guess old habits never truly die.

Also, trying to get KOS-MOS on Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a good FGO simulator.

Lemme put it in simple terms how tedious this event is.


Basically, the first two days of the event are you and your crew members(Discord guild), farming weak bosses to obtain the item you need to host the actual real event boss.

Then after the first two days, you're thrust against an opposing crew and whoever kills the most of the big bosses wins.


Repeat 4 days in a row.



And you basically 'have' to do this because the units that are actually REALLY good in this game aren't in the gacha, you just get them from grinding this event.


The best units in a gacha game are actually f2p, it's just tedious as hell.

It's strange how I made more than twice that amount of posts in 1/5th of the time. That's the power of Yoshi fanaticism... :yoshi:
Pretty amazing. Prior to joining, I remember someone doing the math and estimating that you manage 600 posts a week.
I’ve been here since the last day of Dec, and have almost 900, so I guess I’m not doing too badly.

Someone crunched the numbers on my activity here? I wasn't aware of that...

today's the fateful day folks

View attachment 191763

unless it isn't, then we go back to aimless speculation for 3/4 weeks
The direct will be like a river in a dry land
The last ace in a lost hand will be revealed.
When the hope of new beginnings burned our feet...
Now we need it. The gameplay, i mean.

it'll be a heartbeat for us tin men
an oasis in a singed land of speculation
it'll remind us what we're here for:
creating new theories
creating rivers in the desert

I wonder how many posts I make a week.

This wait for a direct is the boss battle we need to beat.
