My Biggest Gripe with SuMo

Posted by Vox , in Gaming Jan 04 2017 · 52 views

My Biggest Gripe with SuMo So now that I've basically played through Moon, at least up to right before the Elite Four, taking my sweet time, I wanted to address my biggest complaint about Sun and Moon, and really my only complaint.

WHY NO LUNATONE AND SOLROCK!!!


Really, given the names of the game, and the significance of space, why exclude the two pokemon that are literally sun and moon pokemon? I mean I was really hoping the two might have some story significance, because sun and moon, but nope nothing. Then I was hoping they would be included in the regional pokedex as version exclusives... nope. It just seems like such a wasted chance. I mean Minior seems like it would be a somewhat decent pre-evolution for the two even, with what they evolve in dependant upon which version you are playing, much like the mascot legendaries.

*Sighs* Just so disappointed about what could have been.

Also I wish a certain returning "Villian" played a bigger role than he does. If you've played through it you know who I am talking about, or should.

Seymour and Vox

Posted by Vox , in Random stuff Dec 21 2016 · 80 views

So towards the start of November, I had commissioned an artist, by the name of NikkyDash, may know her from her Ruby Nuzlocke Comic she does. Nonetheless been wanting to get a commission of Seymour done for awhile. For those who don't know, Seymour is an Alakazam that was part of my first "Truly" competitive team, when I started taking competitive battling seriously. He was dubbed the "Dragon Killer" as I had him know the move dazzling gleam which was able to usually one shot most dragon types, especially when mega evolved. I eventually retired him in favor of his "Son" Synclaire, whom I bred to have six IVs. But given Seymour's importance to me I wanted to do something with him. Also the trainer is what I would imagine I'd look like as a trainer in Pokemon, though it is a fairly close representation of what I look like in real life, though the beards a bit fuller than I can attain. *Sighs as he wishes he had his "Dream Beard"* So yeah just wanted to share this here.

Also should you be in the market for a commission, Nikkydash is quite affordable, with this only running me $25, though it would have been $15 but she charges $10 for each additional character. So I consider that affordable.

Random discovery

Posted by Vox , in Random stuff Dec 15 2016 · 83 views

So... Apparently Gali's "Crystal" armor and Terak's "Crystal" armor glow very, very faintly under blacklight, at least the transparent parts. I noticed this while doing one of my blacklight appreciation moments, since I very rarely have my blacklight on, and I noticed that my kopaka moc's crystal armor was glowing, which was actually Gali's armor. I mean it's not glowing incredibly and one could easily believe it is a trick of the light, but when compared to Kopaka's golden unity mask, it definitely was glowing.

Wonder what they did differently with the crystal armor add-ons?

Nikon or Canon: Which to buy?

Posted by Vox , in Random stuff Oct 23 2016 · 172 views

So I am planning on taking a somewhat freelance class that a person is offering in photography, and a scholarship I have is able to cover the costs of the class, which includes having to get a DSLR Camera... The director of the class is only allowing Canon or Nikon Cameras, and wants at least a 55mm lens attachment... Odd limitations but not gonna argue.

Now I've never bought a DSLR camera, nor can I say I ever really have looked at buying them. As such I'm hoping those who might frequent my blog or see this might be able to help me choose which is the better option of the two?

Gym 5&6: Holy Heck, Snowdome is a boss

Posted by Vox , in Nuzlocke Oct 15 2016 · 74 views

So not much worth noting for Gym 5, as I used two flying pokemon to take care of said gym, however Gym 6... That is a different story
So started with Raze, thinking fire would be good against steel. It was, but her magnemite used thunderbolt, and Raze was left clinging at 1 HP. Immediately brought out Snowdome, and used him for the rest of the entire fight. One-shotted both her Magnemites with Dig, and single-handedly took down her steelix. Funny fact, Snowdome has Sand Veil, and Jasmine kept having her Steelix use Sandstorm. This allowed Snowdome to make it through the entire fight, only getting hit once by Iron Tail, the rest of the time he was spamming Dig, or when he wasn't steelix's attacks were missing, even screech. Snowdome was definitely the MVP here. Tanked it like a boss.

Current Team:
Snowdome (Sandslash) Lv:27 MV-Bloody-P
Raze (Quilava) Lv:24
Jimothy (Victreebel) Lv:24
Shelob (Ariados) Lv:23
Ivan (Noctowl) Lv:20
Leofrick (Gyarados) Lv:24

Also caught a flaafy, named it Tex, and grinded it on the way from olivine city to cianwood city, since it was all water pokemon that way. Got it level 30 and evolved in an ampharos.



Route - Pokemon
29 - Ivan (HootHoot, M, Quiet)
30 - Shelob (Spinarak, F, Impish)
31 - Spinarak (N/A)

34 - Leonard (Drowzee, M, Bashful)
35 - Abra (Teleported)
National Park - Hoothoot (N/A)
36 - Richard (Pidgey, M, Hardy)
Webster - Kenya (Spearow, F, Hasty)"Gifted" Definitely not stolen

Gen VII: The end?

Posted by Vox , in Gaming Oct 10 2016 · 157 views

So I'm not a huge fan of videos that explain indepth lore or fan theories about pokemon, aka I never really watch them, however there is one video I watched recently that really intrigued me, and I would suggest watching should you like this type of stuff. It's really well done and really in depth. Also it's about an hour long, but well worth that hour of time.
Also fairly certain it's safe, I don't remember there being anything that could potentially have it unlinked here...

Gym 4: Ringar and Morty

Posted by Vox , in Nuzlocke Oct 08 2016 · 86 views

Screw Morty! Screw him and his stupid Gengar. Everything was going great, Shelob was kicking his other pokemon's behind thanks to the convenient Shadow Sneak she learned just before fighting him, and then his gangar came out and started spamming Hypnosis and Shadowball. Barely managed to get Shelob out of there, as she was clinging to life with 5 hp. Brought in snowdome, first move gangar used hypnosis, switched in raze, sucker punch then hypnosis. Finally brought in Kenya, still hypnosis, but thankfully given her normal type she was immune to the shadowball, and woke up enough to damage it, but then right back to hypnosis. This continued for like 2 minutes, and several healing later we managed to beat morty.
Never been so close to having a pokemon die...

Current Team:
Shelob Lv: 20
Jimothy Lv: 17
Raze Lv:22
Snowdome Lv: 24
Kenya Lv: 24
Ivan: Lv: 14

Only new pokemon is a Koffing Named Smaug, burned tower

Gym 2 and Second Rival Battle

Posted by Vox , in Nuzlocke Oct 04 2016 · 50 views

Firstly, This session was amazing. My luck with the pokemon that was my first encounter in each route was amazing. I ran into a couple mareeps, though sadly couldn't catch them since Jimothy, A bellsprout, was already caught on that route. Caught a Sandshrew as well in Union cave... Named it Snowdome for obvious reasons. Did I mention it had a quick claw, because it did.

Then I beat Bugsy, not much of a threat, though His Scyther's quick attack was quite a hassle. Also beat Spirit's (Rival) Croconaw with ease... Jimothy kicks some major behind. Did a bit more after the rival battle, and ended the session at the Daycare center, where I put Cheese, the togepi egg named after a character from Deadheads(Great movie, suggest it), and Lindsey, a caterpie. Also got a drowzee! So freakin excited about that.

Current Team:
Raze lv: 18
Snowdome Lv: 10
Jimothy LV: 14
Shelob Lv: 12
Ivan Lv: 13


Route - Pokemon

29 - Ivan (HootHoot, M, Quiet)
30 - Shelob (Spinarak, F, Impish)
31 - Spinarak (N/A)
Sprout Tower - Ratatta (N/A)
32 - Jimothy (Bellsprout, M, Lonely)
Union Cave - Snowdome (Sandshrew, M, Calm, Had a quick claw)
33 - Zubat (N/A)
Slowpoke Well - Nyancy (Zubat, F, Hasty)
Ilex Forest - Lindsey (Caterpie, F, Serious)

So I have beaten the first gym, just barely though as Falkner's Pidgeotto almost kicked Raze's behind, however a well timed critical ember, followed up with a quick attack, managed to secure us the victory.

Current Team:
Raze(Quilava): Lv: 14
Ivan(Hoothoot): Lv: 8
Shelob(Spinarak): Lv: 9
Togepi Egg


Route - Pokemon
29 - Ivan (HootHoot, M, Quiet)
30 - Shelob (Spinarak, F, Impish)
31 - Spinarak (N/A)
Sprout Tower - Ratatta (N/A)

N/A means it was not caught, or fainted.

One Of My Favorite Poems

FIRE AND ICE
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great,
And would suffice.
BY ROBERT FROST
