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?

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!

Today’s Theme: Coolest Mega Evolution
When X and Y originally dropped, I was not sure what to make of these mega evolution. I knew they were going to be powerful and game changing and ORAS proved they arent going anywhere soon.
Mewtwo and Charizard were among some of the early ones I remember. Man, I thought they looked awesome. The black Charizard with blue fire was legit and Mewtwo X looked like one customer I didnt want to have to deal with. You were given Blakizen and his Mega Evolution had speed boost so it seemed way too overpowered. The story mode had you fight Mega Lucario and that guy just looks great.
So of all the awesome pokemons, which is my favorite? Ampharos.
I know. Of all the Pokemon I named how could I not pick one of them? I just love Mega Ampharos’s design. The long white hair sales it to me for two reasons.
1). It makes him seem like a Poke Elder. This Ampharos has a little history to him. He is an electric pokemon so I have this image of him on a mountain as lightning comes crashing down and he is on top commanding it. The elder feel makes it feel like other pokemons come to him in time of need.
2). It looks like he is going straight Super Saiyan 3 in here man. That idea alone makes it one of the cooler looking pokemon.
There’s a lot to love with this new Ampharos, but at the same time, a lot of the Mega Evolution guys look really awesome.
So what’s your favorite and why? Leave in it the comment section!

Top Five Pokemon I want added to Pokken Tournament!
With Pokken Tournament recently announced to be coming stateside, now’s a better time than ever to discuss future Pokemons to be announced. I’ll leave my top 5. You guys feel free to say who you’d like!
The current roster: Pikachu (Pikachu Libre), Machamp, Gengar, Charizard, Lucario, Gardevoir, Weavile, Suicune, and Blaziken.
#5- Nidoking- This guy is awesome and could be a tanky character. He’s dual type and hes built like a fighter. His moves could range from a projectile sludge bomb attack, to a close range earthquake. I think the potential is there to work him in.
#4- Breloom- Breloom seems like a prefect fit. He is fighting so he has an array of fighting moves like focus punch and dynamic punch. Since he is grass he would be a versatile fighter. He could use moves like leech seed or mega grain to steal hp to add to his own. He also has access to moves like sleep powder, so he could be a very obnoxious troll character. He was also famous for substitute into a focus punch back in the day. We could bring that back.
#3- Scizor- Come on. This seems like a no brainer. The Scizor family tree is a fan favorite and could work very well with either one of them in. Neither Bug or Steel are represented on the rooster, and scizor is a great way to change that. I am not sure all the mechanics(Like can you raise attack and defense mid fight). If this were the case, Scizor could use swords dance and iron defense to beef up and than mega evolve to be unreal. Just a thought. A game thought
#2- Dragonite- This would be so insane. Dragonite is amazing and the OG of dragons. He has access to hyper beam and outrage and a surprisingly large amount of electric moves. He could drop a thunder down from the heavens. On top of that, he has extreme speed to close the gap before seguing into Outrage. He wanted to keep some space between himself and the opponent, he could use twister to damage them and then push them back. He would than follow this up with hyper beam. He is also flying, so he would have a hover side to him. His aerial game would be on point. Him and mega Charizard would have some insane sky fights. Now tell me you wouldnt want to see those two duke it out in the sky.
Honorable mentions- Blastoise, Metagross, Aggron, Primeape, Regirock, Deoxys, Heracross, Sceptile, Any eevelution
#1- Mewtwo- Of course its Mewtwo. Who else could it be. Mewtwo is awesome and, in a way, is a face of the pokemon world. I would say just as many old school Pokemon fans who do not keep up with it anymore know Mewtwo as they would Pikachu. Mewtwo would be a great reason for an old fan to rediscover pokemon in this brand new way. Sure we have Gardevoir, but its safe to say Mewtwo could do some different things. In my mind, Gardevoir would play like a wall. She could use reflect and light screen to block attacks, while Mewtwo would boost his offence with calm mind and bombard his opponent with psychics and he is faster. I dont know if there is a story mode for this game, but Mewtwo would be the perfect final boss. I could imagine a boss fight mode where you have to beat the two mega evolutions for Mewtwo. Now that would be amazing.
These are just MY opinions on game mechanics and future characters. Go watch the trailer and than comment on who you would want to see!
