Thank you for taking the time to read my post and watch my video. You rock. Thank you for any help you can provide in advance! Have a great day everyone!
Pokemon hit us with it’s latest video. If you have not seen it yet, check it here Pokemon Sun and Moon Video.
Let me just say, I have loved everything Gamefreak is doing with this installment. Some Pokemons are still hit or miss but the ideas and creativeness they are trying with mechanics and style is welcomed.
Here’s some of the takeaways.
#1 Pokemons getting fresh make overs:
Have you been playing 20 years of Pokemon? Well Gamefreak is giving some new life into old pokemons, and I like it, personally. Vulpix and Ninetails are getting ice forms as well as Sandshrew and Sandslash. They retain their design but get new colors and typing.
Exeggutor has an Alola form as well. I’m more or less on the fence but I am sure it will work out.
#2 Region based forms are back:
Much like Shellos in Diamond and Vivillion in X and Y, where you catch a pokemon matters. Shellos would be green or pink depending on where you caught it. Vivillion would have different designs depending on where you caught them. Oricorio will have four different forms depending on which island you catch them on. The four forms are the Baile form (Fire/Flying), the Pom Pom form (Electric/ Flying), Pa’u form (Psychic/Flying) Sensu form (Ghost/Flying).
This is a pretty sweet addition if it works how I think it will, because it will be four Pokemon for the price of one. I don’t know about you, but I am always down for more Pokemon!
Their ability is dancer which I did not realize how powerful it can be the first time I watched it.
Here’s a list of all “Dance Moves”
Quiver Dance- Raise Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed by one stage(Most have special based typing so this my be the most useful to steal)
Dragon Dance- Raise Speed and Attack by a stage
Rain Dance- Summons rain for 5 turns (Seems redundant)
Swords Dance- Raise Attack by two stages (Depends on stats and move pool, but does not seem as good.)
Teeter Dance- Confuses all other active Pokemons (Seems like a funny interaction)
Lunar Dance- KO yourself, heal the next Pokemon up (This could be used against you, be careful)
The rest of the dance moves are all attacking moves, we will have to wait to see how this interaction works out.
It’s an awesome ability that could stop a dragon setting up dragon dance, but it does not stop there. Assuming it works how I think it will, it becomes amazing in double battles. Have Pokemon A use Quiver Dance and your Oricorio will copy it. However, I do not know if this counts as your move. If it does, it becomes worse then I think it is. If it does not count as your turn, it can get pretty broken in double battle.
I wish the wording was “Copy the effects of dance moves”. Also I could see Bellossom getting this ability.
Minior has shields down, which seems to act like a substitute ability (much like disguise), and it has four different cores. Not much has been shown yet.
#3 Island Trials
We now have an Island Trial on the four islands, beating them will unlock the leader of each island. This is how you will gain access to new islands. I’m curious to learn more about this aspect.
#4 Z attacks are a thing:
They look broken. Just look at this
Here’s a couple things that stand our about Z attacks.
Look at the levels. It shows Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio, and Pikachu. All baby forms. So how early do you get access to this broken mechanic?
Also, as the video shows, the trainer is the one doing the dance, so it is possible that any Pokemon can use its corresponding type attack.
With new forms, z moves, and tons of variety, this could shake up competitive play as well as how we play Pokemon in general.
The future is as bright as the Alola regions, and I for one, am super excited for what it hold.
Hey guys, I’ve hinted at it before, but its finally time to start it. Im bringing Magic: The Gathering discussions to the blog! What better timing since BFZ just hit the scene. I will put up the first post tomorrow, so you guys be on the look out for that.
Pokemon has 20 years of games, animes, manga, cards, and way more under its belt. This series as touched me and influenced my life possibly the most out of any game. It is one of the reasons I started this blog. Pokemon Go and now Pokemon Z have people buzzing. I think it’s only fair we do a week of Pokemon week! I will be doing a Top Five dedicated to pokemon this Monday-Friday. I am so pumped to do this. Some will be cliche topics and some will be pretty cool.
This starts tomorrow! So check back then and lets kick this off right.
Today we will be introducing a brand new category!
A trip down memory lane will be a monthly series where I break down my introduction to a form of entertainment. Some examples are: Mangas, Comic Books, Movies, Games.
I will talk about my first experience with them and reflect on my feelings and how they have impacted my life. I am super excited to be doing this. Tomorrow will be the first edition, so make sure to check back tomorrow!
E3 is just around the corner, so to honor it heres my Wishlist for E3:
Star Fox: I am ready to see what Nintendo rolls out in general, but I am interested to see some Star Fox news. I havent played a Star Fox Game since the N64, so I am very interested to see what the new one will be like.
Fall Out 4: The game will undoubtedly be epic! I am currently playing New Vegas for the first time and loving it, so I am sure 4 will only improve on a series that seems to be doing pretty darn good!
Resident Evil: Resident Evil 1-5 were golden, and Six was alright. Capcom has been intentionally leaving the RE series off of E3 to make sure they got it right. Well I need more RE in my life and soon. I would be nothing less than excited to see some footage of RE 7. Preferably they will find a nice blend of survival horror like the first three with the nice action vibe of the last two. 4 wouldve be absolutely perfect if they hadnt have done the plague idea. Basically if RE7 plays like RE4 but with Zombies it will be perfect. Make it happen Capcom!
Yoshi’s Woolly World: I have literally lost track of how long ive been waiting for this game to come out! It will be all I play once it comes out. It looks cute and a like good way to waste hours on end. Enough teasing, I want an official release date and I want it to be this summer. Lets go.
Zelda Wii U: I AM SO READY FOR THIS GAME. I am actually okay with the push back. It just means Nintendo is taking their time to make it right and that is okay with me. E3 though, better give me plenty of Zelda news and updates. I am beyond pumped !
And of course, I am always interested in learning about games I have never seen or heard of. I am ready for all the secrets and big announcements. I ready to discover gems. I am ready for E3. It is going to rock!
