I know, right?

I didn't even know the Gamefreak guys even played WoW.

These topics stop being interesting after the seventieth time.

I think I need to buy some groceries and then play some Fire Emblem.

WoW hardly invented the concept of a fighting panda as warcraft 3 didn't come out until 2002, by then Panda from Tekken had already been out for 5 years, and apparently the concept for Kung Fu Panda was pitched in 2001.

I am curious as to who really was the first martial arts panda because it's such a recurring thing. I can't imagine that Panda from Tekken was the first one.

Isn't there a fighting panda in that Ranma manga?

I'm surprised every manga doesn't already have a fighting panda.

Haven't read it, but I do vaguely remember a panda in that. Was it a martial artist? If so, probably. When did Ranma come out? -checks-

Okay, so that was 1987 (assuming the panda is there right from the start)

That really does send us back quite a bit, doesn't it?

Hmm...we need to go deeper.

Yup, that's ranma dad who was cursed to turned into a panda whenever he touched cold water and turns back with hot water, Same thing happens to ranma but instead of a panda, he turns into a hot red head girl.

I have no problem with a panda Pokemon, but I find it odd that it debuts in a generation based on France instead of any of the Asian based generations.

I don't care if you hate every Pokemon Gen but the first one. Just don't get all up in my face about it and let me love all five.
