Pokémon Moon, Episode 9: In Which I Do Battle With A Demon Jellyfish From The Endless Void

I should really just get out while I’m ahead. I got this sparkly bracelet thing, I got a bunch of weird voodoo crystals with a variety of dubiously magic powers, I got a bunch of… arguably cool Pokémon that I’d never seen before.  Some of those things’d have to fetch a decent price if I … Continue reading Pokémon Moon, Episode 9: In Which I Do Battle With A Demon Jellyfish From The Endless Void

X Nuzlocke extra dialogue: Fisher and Luna

Regular operations (or at least, as regular as things ever are around here) will resume shortly.  In the mean time, this is just some stuff that I wrote for the Nuzlocke story that, upon reflection, doesn’t actually fit anywhere into the next proper episode – Luna the psychopathic Skitty and Fisher the Psyduck priest talking … Continue reading X Nuzlocke extra dialogue: Fisher and Luna

Why is Corsola in the Water1/Water3 egg group, and not Mineral? Water1 is composed of amphibians and aquatic mammals, and water 3 is shellfish and cephalopods. What in the distortion world IS coral?

Well, as I understand it, coral is a sort of communal organism not altogether unlike a jellyfish, but sedentary and hard-bodied, so Water 3 makes a lot of sense.  Water 1, to be honest, is composed of all kinds of insane nonsense and I’m not sure there’s any point looking for a consistent rationale there. … Continue reading Why is Corsola in the Water1/Water3 egg group, and not Mineral?

Gen 2 introduced the idea of pokemon that ar extremely rare or impossible to catch until a herd on some days. This adds an exciting factor to the hunt when you have a small window of opportunity to find a certain pokemon, but all of these pokemon were bad. Azumarill got buffed over the years, yanma evolved, and dunsparce got niche uses, but back then they stank, and quilfish is still unusable. Gen 1’s safari zone rewarded your effort with good mons, so what gives here?

We-ell, I don’t know if it’s entirely fair to generation II to draw such a sharp distinction – generation I has its share of pretty useless Pokémon that are hidden away in frustrating places.  I mean, you mention that Azumarill and Yanma were much weaker originally than they are now, but the same is true … Continue reading Gen 2 introduced the idea of pokemon that ar extremely rare or impossible to catch until a herd on some days.

Now, humans and Pokémon clearly have different traits which mark them as separate classes of life (eggs, the ability to be stored in a Poké Ball, etc.). We also know in the Pokémon world that there are multiple real-world plants and animals such as worms, your occasional fish, and all the animals they compare Pokémon to, and Raichu’s Asian elephants. My question is, how did humans manage to survive and evolve? Almost all of their traits are easily surpassed by Pokémon–even the lowly Magikarp

This question continues: “…*cont* leap over a mountain. Why didn’t natural selection kick humanity’s ass during their development, leaving only Pokémon? What circumstances would lead to humans surviving alongside Pokémon?” Well, now, that is a difficult one, isn’t it?  I’m inclined to suggest that the way to get the answer is to go back to how … Continue reading Now, humans and Pokémon clearly have different traits which mark them as separate classes of life (eggs, the ability to be stored in a Poké Ball, etc.).

You know what bothers me? Cherubi. The Cherry Pokémon. But, aren’t Cheri Berries the Pokémon world equivalent to cherries? Just like they don’t have cats, just Meowths, Skitties, etc. (Of course, Meowth’s the “Scratch Cat” Pokémon, Pikachu is an “Electric Mouse”, but in my head, “fish” is just their general therm for Pokémon with specific characteristics, and so are “cat”, “mouse” etc. Pikachu is an electric mouse, while Ratatta is a normal mouse…)

Would it help if they started calling it “the Cheri Pokémon"?

( my grammar might suck sorry ) what do you think of qwilfish? i know this is rota odd but do you think he is at all horrible i think he is one of the most boring pokemon ever i ask this because….well just because

What do I think of who? Heh.  Sorry, couldn’t resist. Qwilfish is, quite honestly, one of the few Pokémon I have ever just forgotten about completely.  Jim and I were looking through my Pokédex on Diamond a couple of years back and we found this empty spot and just stared at for about ten minutes before … Continue reading ( my grammar might suck sorry ) what do you think of qwilfish? i know this is rota odd but do you think he is at all horrible i think he is one of the most boring pokemon ever i ask this because….well just because

Early in the episodes, you see real life animals..*cackles*, You see fish in Misty’s aquarium, you also see fish in the bottom of the ocean when S.S. Anne sank, You could also hear bird calls in the distance and there was a worm being eaten by a pidgeotto, and then there are all the pokedex references. I’ve heard stuff like “oh they didnt have enough pokemon back then”, and “the pokedex are like that just so you can relate, but wouldnt it be cool if we could claim that the animals were secretly

This question has fallen afoul of Tumblr’s arbitrary 400-odd character limit, and was supposed to end:“…going extinct, and noone gave a crap about it cuz pokemons obviously the "superior species”, what if a field inhabited by wild boufalants was once a home for regular buffalos or something like that. idk, i get curious about these … Continue reading Early in the episodes, you see real life animals..*cackles*, You see fish in Misty’s aquarium, you also see fish in the bottom of the ocean when S.S.
