HOW DID I NOT F***ING CATCH THAT!!?!?

Oh, and the episode was surprisingly good, and I normally don't like Pinkie, or babies.

But now cross genetics are canon! Hip hip HOORAY!!

FINALLY A FUCKING PINKIE EPISODE. There's been a distinct lack of them on...really all of the mane 6 excluding Rarity and RD.

I fucking loved this episode. Pinkie wanting to be able to be considered responsible reveals some more of her characterization. She does want to be able to be taken seriously sometimes!

The shrug-off on how they had unicorn/pegasus children was fucking hilarious. I lol'd hard. I can't imagine that was for anypony other than the fans with our enormous debate on the races. Especially with the added on "That makes sense...right?" and looking at the screen.

@Nono: It was explained by Twilight that baby unicorns have weird magical abilities. The seemed to go along with whatever Pumpkin wanted at any given time. The toys from the other crib, to fly around with Pound, to escape the trap, etc.

AND A FUCKING REPORT THAT CELESTIA OF EQUESTRIA. I miss my moral reports. Part of why I love this show, and they've been absent from the previous couple of episodes.

@Pasta: What am I seeing in this picture, I don't understand

This episode goes to show that unicorns are fucking OP. A few days after birth and they can already bend matter, walk through walls, and fly.

Yeah, what the flip? Pumpkin's outburst was cooler than Twilight's outburst when she discovered her cutie but far more controlled. Pumpkin was doing it on purpose. Twilight's was on accident. Imagine the power Pumpkin will have when she's older!


likes

I love this episode. The babies are awesome and their expressions are priceless. I love the potential magical power Pumpkin could have when she is older. Pinkie does more magic than not only Twilight but all unicorns in ponyville combined. That's always awesome and Pinkie clones herself. XD


my dislikes again but it's not about this episode.

But what I hate about this is that in earlier episodes, Twilight keeps trying to downplay unicorns and say, "OH NO! UNICORNS AREN'T OVERPOWERED! THEY ONLY HAVE "LIMITED" MAGIC" when Rarity can manipulate light and make the best illusions ever and see through rocks and other stuff. The Great and Powerful Trixie can make a rainbow solidify and wrap someone. Also, the unicorns must be op enough to invent the cloudwalking spell that was written in the book that Twilight had to read. In the holiday episode, Twilight makes a heart shaped thing that gets rid of the windigoes. I don't mean Twilight herself but the character she is supposed to represent in the play. She even tries to say that in the same flipping episode that happened...Well, her character. I won't make any Twilight examples because she's supposed to be the unicorn with hidden power


On a side note, am I the only one to think that Pinkie Pie reminds me too much of Dee Dee from Dexter's Laboratory? Especially that totally silly serious look with the camera right in front of her face that she does totally reminds me of Dee Dee. lmao

UNICORN POWERS AS A FILLY ARE UNPREDICTABLE

SAID BY TWILIGHT RIGHT IN THE BEGINNING

PRESUMABLY THEY DON'T STAY THAT STRONG

ALSO, THE SHOW SEEMED TO INDICATE THAT PUMPKIN CONTROLLED THE MAGIC ONCE IN THE BEGINNING, BUT GOES ON TO IMPLY THAT THE MAGIC SIMPLY DOES WHAT THE USER WANTS MOST. THERE ISN'T REALLY CONTROL. AND IF THERE IS, A 1 DAY OLD WILL ONLY DO WHAT HE/SHE WANTS MOST ANYWAY

I don't think this implies unicorns are OP in any way. And what if they are? They still are shit at growing food, presumably, and they can't control the weather; both vital things for the society.

I don't think this implies unicorns are OP in any way. And what if they are? They still are shit at growing food, presumably, and they can't control the weather; both vital things for the society.

That logic is tremendously flawed. As I said in my post, Twilight's outburst was not controlled at all. Basically, what you're saying is that Twilight wanted to turn her parents into cactus and cause havoc at the school thus ruining her chances going to the school she wanted to be in by destroying it...oh, wait.

Also, you're saying that magic does what the user wants it to do...Really? Then, that's beyond overpowered AND by definition in control. Oh hey! I really want my dead parents alive again. *magic* Yay, my parents are alive again.

And Pumpkin seems to predict her powers a lot. She thinks, "I want to fly."" *flies* Yay I'm flying" or "I want to get out of this crib." *makes a dang portal* "Yay I can go through now." Also, It must be premeditated because how would she know what the portal would do since it just showed a pure blue circle without a hole in it?

Also, I'm not believing a single thing Twilight says because of the flip that has happened in other episodes especially in this episode.

And the Great and Powerful Trixie seems to be able to control the clouds and when to make it shoot lightning and control Rainbows.

HUZZAH! A DEBATE I CAN ACTUALLY ATTRIBUTE TO!

First of all, Twilight, at the time of the outburst, was no longer a baby.  As Rarity said, "Baby unicorns get strange magic surges that come and go."  Therefore, it was not a baby-surge.  That was a surge based on something completely different.  It could be something to do with her connection with RD as well as her magic talent as well as cotton candy  It doesn't matter what THAT was due to, it wasn't due to being a baby.

Silver was still talking about baby unicorns.  Taking into account that they can talk as well as many other human abilities, I'm basing my ideas on the opinion that the ponies of My Little Pony have human-esque intellect.  That means, at the age of the baby, they only concern themselves with, well, themselves.  Also, I think the ability to bring back life, as with practically every fictional magic, is difficult or absolutely requires some extra factor, like blood magic.  And, since this is My Little Pony, not a drop of blood will be shed anywhere.

As for baby magic premeditation, all we can throw out are maybes.  Maybe Pumpkin saw the section of barricade that was different, deciding to walk into it?  That is unanswerable, as well as nit-picking.

And Trixie?  Her talent is dazzling an audience.  If that means utilizing a rainbow, have at it.

Pasta basically covered most of it, but I want to offer a rebuttal myself.

Twilight was a FILLY, and one with massive inherent magical ability that the Princess hadn't seen before. Hers was an outburst of pent up magic. An explosion of magic, not just magic occurring out of the users control.

You are applying the magic that occurs as a baby to adult themes. That's hardly a thing that I said. You're hyperbolizing AND doing it incorrectly. How about this? Have you seen/read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone? Remeber how Harry causes the glass to disappear without controlling it consciously but simply because he wants it? Similar to that.

Pumpkin isn't predicting her powers, her powers are responding to her wants. She wants to fly, so the powers let her fly. She wants our of the crib, so her powers give her an exit. Why wouldn't she try the portal? It naturally would look like a doorway, one made of the magic that she had seen used already in helpful situations.

To what flip are you referring?

Trixie didn't create rainbows, and took the greatest extent of her power to create lightning and a single cloud. That's hardly efficient, and not capable of producing the storms needed to grow crops and aid the Earth ponies.

@pasta Uh, yes she was! Just because she can talk doesn't mean she isn't a baby. Heck RARITY had a magical surge when she was little and they showed it. Her magic was magnetizing her to jewels but now, that I remember this example Rivaled Sir's latest post makes a lot of sense now.

Oh and don't worry about nit-picking. I do it all the time. I am the champion of nitpicking. Most of what I post is nit-picking. I am nit-picking about nit-picking... I have no life. D:

Plus making yourself fly and making a portal for yourself to me is extremely powerful. More powerful than what Twilight did in my opinion.

@ Rivaled Sir. Okay, most of what you said are good points in this post and correct. The Harry Potter reference is the best part of your post. I understand what you are saying. Yes, I read the book and saw the movie.
but there are a few things I don't agree with. Pumpkin was closing her eyes, focusing, and trying to make her horn work except with the flying. Twilight's and Rarity's horn was just working on their own and not premeditated AND their horns were shining throughout the surge. Pumpkin's was not.

And about your Great and Powerful Trixie post, you totally missed the point. I never said she created Rainbows and the point was that she CAN do it no matter how small it is. She has a limited control of controlling the weather. You said unicorns CAN'T control any weather. I bet if The Great and Powerful Trixie practiced hard enough, she would be able to do even more because she's the Great and Powerful Trixie! ^_^ j/k

And about the "flip" I was saying is that Twilight said, "Magic is something you control" in the pinkie keen episode yet, babies gets random magical surges that no one can explain or control...

No, just no. That alone just makes me extremely angry. I can make pages long reasons why that sentence and more is bull flip but I'm going to spare all of your eyes of my opinions.

Now, that I think about it, I find it odd that the mane 6 does a lot of what is not normal for their races. Rarity's physical strength is astonishing. Rainbow Dash does what seems like magic like that nuke to the shack and more magic than what Pegasi can do like the sonic rainboom and Pinkie does the most magic IN THE WHOLE SHOW.

...I just read the episode synopsis for the episode "Hearts and Hooves Day," and this was my immediate reaction.

Seriously, there's gonna be canonical shipping, of a pairing no one's imagined? I mean, Cherilee and Big Mac? Who saw that coming? I certainly haven't. You did it again, Studio B. Though my FlutterMac side will be raging, I'm curious to see how it plays out regardless.

The CMC are trying to set them up. Probably because Big Mac is the only stallion they know, and Cheerilee is the only mare they all know reasonably well. And since it's the CMC, it's probably going to fail anyway.
