Top Five Type Pairings That Need To Happen

Volcanion was released a few weeks ago becoming the first ever Water/Fire. With the addition of Fairy, the type combos now seem endless. Here’s a list of Top Five Pokemon Pairing that need to Happen Nintendo!

#5 Ice/Bug- And who said bugs could only grow in forests? I must admit, I don’t know how well this pokemon would preform but I love the concept. Creepy little bugs crawling all over the south pole. I just imagine them looking horrifying. They do not really compliment each other’s weaknesses too well. Ice handles bug’s weakness to flying though.

#4- Bug/Fairy- I might be the only person here who wants to see this come to life, but that is okay. Most of their pairings are pretty typical. Seems every generation has a Bug/Poison, Bug/Flying, Poison/Grass. I get excited for the odd ball typing like Bug/Electric. Seeing this typing in the future will add some spice to the game.

#3 Psychic/Poison-This typing seems too dreamy to ever come true.  I like poisons but with this typing it would give them that heavy hitter it needs. The special attack and speed would be there. Poison could give it a bit more of physical side and allow for some mix sweepers.

#2 Electric/Fighting- This one seems like a cool concept. I imagine it being super hyper and feisty. It would always be looking for a fight. Having fighting would help him against steel pokemons. Also, being electric would easily take care of fighting’s weakness to flying. Plus, I’ve seen Pikachu with boxing gloves on too many times to not want this happen!

#1 Grass/Fire- Grass pokemon’s thrive in sunlight. Think about it. Chlorophyll, solar powered, etc. Fire pokemons love sunlight too. It would increase their attack by 50%. So imagine a 50% stronger fire blast and being able to cast solar beam in one turn. Being grass negates the weakness to water and ground. Being Fire negates it’s weakness to fire, ice, and bug.

What are some combos you’d like to see? let me know!

Daily Blog Challenge: January 29th

Sorry about no update yesterday! Busy day! Doing two today

Today’s Theme: Early Thoughts on Volcanion

The latest pokemon was revealed a while back and I debated on just waiting til they released the full story, but since were winding down on Pokemon Month, might as well talk about our new goodie!

Volcanion. Pokemon Number 721. Fire/Water. The Steam Pokemon

This guy looks like the real deal. I enjoy the concept and the design very much. To me, looks like a fox’s face with a turtle like body? maybe. I like the ring around him. It’s a cool addition.

They’ve only revealed a short video, so there is a lot left to be desired, but it’s a good start.

He’s the first ever fire/water pokemon. I know! You’d think after 20 years there would be more. but nope. He’s the OG man. This will be the topic of a top five later.

So here’s  a quick description of what he can do. He has a unique organ in his body that turns water vapor into powerful fire. Oh, and his heat can straight destroy mountains. I pulled this info from Bulbapedia. Go there to check out their page for more info on this guy.

The negative. Guess what his ability is. Come on guess. Something unique for this unique little creature? Or maybe pressure? The go to for legends. Nope. You’d be wrong. Bulbapedia has it listed as water absorb. I get that, but why not have the option for flash fire? It’s the same concept. Or, what I would prefer, blending the two. Such as “If this pokemon is hit by water or fire moves, it increases his HP.” or what I call Steam Powered “If this pokemon is hit by a water or fire move, this pokemon receives a boost in special attack” I just feel like this ability makes more sense than just water absorb. That part is kinda lame. I mean, I get that matches his organ ability and every thing.

So yeah. Lot’s of potential for this guy. I am going to keep my eyes peeled for sure.

What about you guys? What do you think? Havent seen it yet? Head over to Bulbapedia and search Volcanion, or go to the pokemon website and watch their video.

Thanks for reading this!

My Life as a Teacher 1/30/16 and Daily Blog Update

So, yesterday I did my first day of subbing. It was not bad at all. Just really, really boring. The teacher I subbed left the students 5 work sheets to do over the course of the hour and a half class. Only the students had already done 3, and they knocked the other two out within 20-30 minutes. This resulted in a boring but easy day. I let the students speak quietly among themselves or listen to music or play games on their phone. It was a Friday and everyone was looking forward to weekend like they were Rebecca Black in that joint. I was already offered to sub again Monday I just have to confirm it.

Right when I got off, my girlfriend and I began babysitting until 12:30am. After that I had homework to do. This is why no Daily Blog went up yesterday. I passed out after homework. I’ll try to do two today to make up for it.

I subbed 10th grade biology for one block and 11th grade U.S. History. My spot Monday would be English as long as it’s still open
