  1. I don't know if it's true of the other two starters but, man, Incineroar is so well-animated and fun to watch. I don't know why people were bagging on its design because it's really fun to watch do anything.
  2. I finally finished my Nuzlocke game in Y. Final team was Chesnaught, Blastoise, Aerodactyl (Mega Aerodactyl is a monster), Haxorus, Florges, and Goodra. Two dragons but between them they had really great coverage. I think I got lucky--Haxorus and Goodra were both good mons to land when I caught them (was expecting Zubat and something like Arbok given the area where they were caught)--and the team ended up having a ton of defensive power between them. I did lose my Vespiquen though, which was really unfortunate--really low odds to get a female Combee and she ended up being pretty excellent. I was hoping to take her all the way.
  3. I'm curious to see how people are going to use the Tapus' terrain powers in competitive (which I don't really play but am sort of obsessed with reading about). Nobody gave a damn about any of the terrains in Gen6 but the Tapus sort of force them into the conversation.
  4. My Pichu was Adamant, which was horrible for special, so I had to cut it and slot in Oranguru (who's... okay I guess?). Nasty Plot Raichu could absolutely be a thing.
  5. I wasn't expecting much at all from Toucannon but jesus it's so good. Skill Link + high Attack + Bullet Seed + Rock Blast is ridiculous. I mean you basically have to get Skill Link for it to be worth a damn but that's not too hateful a task. (Too hateful a task = spending an hour or so on Thanksgiving getting a Scrappy Pangoro. Which I did.)
  6. Meet the evil sandcastle Arn Sanderson.
  7. I don't even care, I don't have to lug a Bibarel into Victory Road just because it's the only one on the team that knows Strength, I don't have five thousand different screens asking me if I'm REALLY REALLY REALLY SURE I don't want Cutiefly to learn Sweet Scent, I don't have to make absolutely sure I pick "Manage Boxes" or whatever instead of "Deposit Pokemon" if I actually want to have a meaningful interface for withdrawing, I don't have to keep track of whether the secondary Poison type cancels out the primary Grass type's resistance to Ground... the interface fixes alone are worth it for me. This is the kind of basic shit they should've been doing last generation. For the first time ever, the interface seems to be working for me instead of fighting with me, and that's worth a lot.
  8. I just beat the kahuna of the first island. Team right now is... * Torracat * Trumbeak * Cutiefly * Pichu And the last two slots are alternating between Grubbin, Gastly (for fast Hypnosis), the free Munchlax (MAKE SURE YOU GET YOURS), and Crabrawler (who I just found out can't evolve until the last area, which. Ick.). Technician Alolan Meowth has some neat tricks up its sleeve, so I'll occasionally bring him in too. First kahuna was rough because I critted Mankey and activated Anger Point.
  9. Oh yeah I went Litten mainly for WRESTLECAT purposes, which is hilarious because it was the one I was least into when it was first announced. Rowlet's stock dropped precipitously the more of its evolutions appeared.
  10. I'm only through Route 1 and I kind of love this a lot. Alola feels like an actual setting with a culture and a world that relates to the mons that exist within it rather than, say, Hoenn's "oh we're just kinda here and also there are 2-3 powerful doomsday weapon mons" or Kalos's "France I guess." The interface changes are so obvious that it's rather baffling it's taken this long. And there's definitely a story at work early beyond just vaguely striking out on one's own and oh btw here's the Heel Team. I really want a Skill Link Pikipek though.
  11. http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/randombattle-476877677 Six-mon sweep happening here with what I'd consider an unexpected mon using mostly Hidden Power Rock (CPU-selected random battle).
  12. They were falling even more than words in love with you while their placenta fell to the floor.
  13. I mean, Live has a pretty good rhythm section, but why would you even bother trying to be a band called Live again after Ed K left? (oh god why do i have such opinions about live)
  14. "It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away," the statement read. "We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief." My daughter is literally named Suzanne. This is fucking me up.
  15. That was the case last gen too. Greninja is Water/Dark so is doubly strong against Fire/Psychic Delphox, which is doubly strong against Grass/Fighting Chesnaught. I actually wouldn't be surprised if Fairy was weak against Ghost this gen for that reason.
