Today’s Theme: Thoughts on Chandelure being added to Pokken

For starters, if you havent read my “What 5 pokemon’s should be added to Pokken” already, go do so. *End of shameless plugging*

Chandelure is the latest pokemon added to the highly anticipated Tekken style pokemon game, Pokken. With it’s gameplay trailer dropping today: Here’s my thoughts.

If you haven’t seen the video already, check it out here Chandelure Announcement Video on crunchy roll.

For starters, I do not like that they choose Chandelure. Nothing against it, but we already have Gengar. Plus, if we had to go with another Ghost type, I would much whether want to get Rotom. Rotom could change types to help him get a boost on his opponent and have access to more moves.

But, Chandelure is what we’re given, so lets roll with it.


Right of the bat, for who Chandelure is and as much as I am hating on it, I still like what they’ve done with it. It looks like it has a nice move pool and cool animations. I’m torn on the cry though. It’s creepy, but at the same time sounds like a kid whine. Maybe it’ll grow on me over time. I do actually enjoy that Chandelure is a more an out there choice. The other character’s are usual suspects, so seeing Chandelure’s face here is refreshing.

However, both fire and ghost are represented while a handful of types are not. I’m hoping Chandelure is not the last reveal or at least get some DLC to help cover other types.

Either way, Chandelure looks to spice things up and I appreciate that nonetheless.

So what are your guys thought on Chandelure joining the fight?

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!
Pikachu with gloves

#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!

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

Today’s Theme: What occupation would I want in the Pokemon Universe

So many choices. The everyday poke mart that I can relate to(Former DG employee haha). Or how about helping pokemons at a Pokemon Center? I did put up a post about becoming a substitute teacher today, so maybe I’d want to do that? Than there’s the awesome ones. Gym Leader! Elite Four! Champion! That’s pretty close to being the President right? Wait. Does the Pokeverse even have a government?

So what job do I want: Scientist

Yes! The crazy people with voltorbs. While becoming a teacher is a goal of mine, ecology is my passion. I’d love to study pokemons in their habitats. Come on. Is there anything better. To get to swim with goldeens. To fly with Pidgeottos. To explore caves with digletts. To traverse mountains with Larvitar. To discover forests with Heracross’s.

I would probably end up being Professor Birch’s aid. He studies Habitats.

Today’s Theme: What Pokemon Town Would I want to live in?

This is a super tough question! Do I kick it old school and say Pallet town or New Bark Town? Or maybe I go for the huge towns like Castelia? I had it narrowed down to two regions. I either wanted to live in Johto or Sinnoh. Still, as I’m typing this, I am flip flopping between so many cities. Even Lilycove and Lavaridge from Hoenn and Cerulean from Kanto were high on my list.

So which is my favorite:  Goldenrod

This was very cool back in the day. If I’m not mistaken it had a game corner you could kill time. It had a pokemon center, pokemon mart, and a gym to keep you busy. Sure, it could spring from a contest hall. Another plus, it’s in walking distance of Azalea and Ercuteak, two cool cities. I think we all know the saling point though. It had a huge radio tower! Yeah, it was so cool that Oak would come and do his program through it. I always loved that. It also got used in a side mission to rescue it from Team Rocket. The other high point is that it had a train. Yeah, this was the big one for me because I can easy get to Kanto thanks to it. That is always a plus. So living in Golden Rod means sweet vacations.

One of the minuses that stands out is the lack of history. Violet town and Ercuteak have their towers. Azalea has it’s slowpoke well and Blackthorn has the dragon’s cave. The Unown cave is even close by. So it does suck in a region so dedicated to history and lore, Goldenrod gets the short end of the stick, but hey. No other Johto town has a magnet train!

There’s lots of little stuff too. Like Bill’s house, the tunnel, The Name Rater, and the flower shop to name a few.

So what’s your favorite town/where would you live if you moved to a pokemon region. It’s a fun question. Put some thought into what town offers the most to you.

Daily Blog Challenge: January 26th

So I finally remembered, and do not ask me how I forgot, the final type.

Today’s Theme: Favorite Dragon Pokemon

Yes. One of my favorite and least favorite types in all of Pokemon. Dragons have some of the coolest design of any pokemons. From the big hulking Dragonite to the fierce land shark Garchomp. I like how dragons are weak to dragons. Like a it takes a dragon to kill a dragon idea. I think one of the reasons I find them so cool is Lance. Gary might be my favorite character from the anime, but Lance was the cool guy from the games. He had like 18 Dragonites and it sucked losing to him. I think his iconicness almost made it seem like Dragons are the boss of the pokemon world.

So whose my favorite: Dratini 

I went back and forth between Dratini and Bagon. I like Bagon and the tragic story of how they cannot fly. But Dratini is the OG of Dragons. If Dragonite was pure dragon he would be top of the list for sure. In all honestly they are both sweet and I think if I could only use one, I’d use Bagon. Dratini is hard to train itself. It’s common moves are wrap and t-wave. It’s not much to work with, but like magikarp, the pay off is ten-fold.

So that does it for types. Tomorrow I got to think of something else.

Today’s Theme:  Favorite Normal Pokemon

I never really think much of normal pokemons. After all, theyre just that. However, I found some that seem to be anything but normal.

So whose my favorite: Porygon

Honestly, any of the Porygons have always fascinated me. In the 90’s they seemed so cool. They were based on computers and coding. He had the signatures move conversion 1 and 2 and Sharpen. Which in all honesty are cooler in theory than practice, but it’s still cool. I think part of the mystery is that I’ve never fully studied them. This helps keep them kind of in the dark. It’s my imagination doing the telling. It’s like with Unown or a handful of legends. I never look beyond what is given, so there’s still a lot I do not know about them. That’s cool to me.

So whose you’re favorite?

Today’s Theme: Favorite Poison Pokemon

They are cut throat and ruthless. Poison by design is one of the fiercest types. I always liked the poison type though I never really used them until I got to high school. I became in love Crobat years later after he was released. He was such a great pokemon. He had awesome speed and was poisonous. Amazing combo. I was thinking about breaking into competitive and using poison strategies was going to be something I tried. Instead, I used Abrok to get intimidation and than poison. It was a good idea but Arbok was took weak in the competitive scene to accomplish much before dying. I never got around to using Crobat competitively, but I did use him a number of play throughs.

So whose my favorite: Weezing

Yeah, Mister 6 Packs A Day himself. I’m picking Weezing because I caught a Koffin in Emerald and he was on my team the whole way through. That might have been my favorite team because that team was just a mix of odd ball characters. I had Swampart, Weezing, and Castform. That was the team I used to beat the game. I do not know how either. haha

The first time I ran a youtube channel I made a banner that had Weezing, Arbok, and Crobat saying “Get Infected”. You know. Infected with videos. That’s when I realized I really liked poison as a type even if most of the pokemons are inferior. I might like them more than Water type. I don’t know. It’s close.

I know I said this was the last type post, but I missed normal and I might even have missed another one. So I’ll be checking into that later. I got to go to my brother’s birthday party so I probably wont be on here much today.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this!

Today’s Theme:  Favorite Water Pokemon

There’s so many awesome water pokemon, but let’s cut to the chase. If you know anything about me there can only be one answer. I do not even care if it’s a starter.

My Favorite: Squirtle

Seriously, what more  can I say about this guy? He was my very first pokemon. He was there when I killed my first Rattata. He was there when I caught my first Pidgey. He was there when I got my first badge. His pokedex number 007, once my favorite characters in cinema and all around iconic character James Bond. I’ve already mention on here how I tried to talk my friend into dressing up like Charmander and Squirtle and have a battle in our hallways for senior prank. Squirtle will always be my first beloved pokemon, and one of the reasons I always come back to the franchise. This guy had his own gang for crying out loud. For me he is one of the things that makes the original Red and Blue so awesome. There’s no better feeling than to set out from Pallet town with him by my side. He’s empowering and much like Charizard, Pikachu, and Mewtwo, he’s become just as huge of an icon for Pokemon. He is simply the best pokemon of all.

Whose your favorite Water pokemon? Also who was your very first starter? Did they have a impact on you. For me, I turned on Pokemon Red the first time over 15 years go. I probably played pokemon before I even started school. It’s hard to remember exactly.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back tomorrow. We finish up types with poison!
