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!

#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!

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Check back tomorrow for the last day of January!

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!
