06:43:58 Researcher!Tagg: Silent, what should I say: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=rmvjixctp256gfq3p86y66ma&page=289#7209
06:44:22 VeniaSilente: checking
06:46:06 VeniaSilente: Hmmm, I'd do a rereading of the article, but it's not really a critical research failure.
06:47:17 VeniaSilente: "Metallic properties" like thermal conductivity are not exclusive to metals. If a material is specifically a nonmetal in _our_ chemistry then it'd be harder to feature such properties, but Pokéverse chemistry is at the very least substantially different as well.
06:49:07 VeniaSilente: Hmmmm....
06:50:08 Researcher!Tagg: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanonPokedex/Regice
06:50:50 VeniaSilente: Well, for one, it is pointed out that the compound features *bizarre* properties.
06:51:29 ***Researcher!Tagg is now reminded of his theory that the armbands were made with Regicite.
06:52:57 VeniaSilente: One point - chemistry is not really my strong point (heck, not even a weak one ._.) but I don't think the current concept of metalloids allows ones with stable crystal structure.
06:55:10 Researcher!Tagg: From what I'm reading on TOW, there are some nonmetals that can be good conductors.
06:55:26 VeniaSilente: Yeah.
06:56:03 Researcher!Tagg: Ex. graphite.
06:56:43 VeniaSilente: Anyway, bottom line: perhaps after a reread and recheck we _might_ term Regicite a metalloid, but I don't see any problem with it being a nonmetal. There's nothing in the articles that demands it has to be specifically a metal at least, and the properties it has are spread across various kinds of compounds, perhaps including plastics.
06:58:10 VeniaSilente: I think one of the Regi articles mention that Regicite might be what grants the Pokémon its flexibility, in which case it can not really be a metal if it is present in too high a density.
07:00:35 Researcher!Tagg: Here's how I responded: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=rmvjixctp256gfq3p86y66ma&page=289#7210
07:01:33 VeniaSilente: Yep, nice example.
07:01:33 Researcher!Tagg: I also read that metalloids tend to be brittle, so it's not one of those either.
07:02:18 VeniaSilente: Again: _weird_ material

16:14:56 Researcher!Tagg: Silent, you there?
16:18:03 VeniaSilente: Yes
16:18:18 VeniaSilente: Sorry, I was busy with my oneshot (read it! :3) so I hadn't noticed the link here
16:22:41 VeniaSilente: Could you quote or link to the discussion we had yesterday? Where I point out that we might reclassify it as metalloid if absolutely needed, but there's nothing in chemistry saying that a thing that features metallic properties *among others* _has_ to be a metal.
16:23:54 VeniaSilente: Taking from his post, he's more or less saying that a blue car has to be a police car, even if it is orange.
