Pahrak's PokéRecords: Steel

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 24 2013 · 82 views

-Lucario ("Aki", "Akamai")
-Bronzong ("Bronz")
-Dialga ("Vahi")
-Empoleon ("Kowalski")
-Genesect
-Bisharp ("Muramasa")
-Aegislash ("Ultima")
 
I've had mixed experience with Steel.  Sometimes, despite its many resistances, one of my Steel Pokemon just won't have a talent for lasting very long in battle.  But other times they're just plain awesome.  I like Steel as a type overall, and I definitely hope to use more of it--especially now that it has a type advantage over Fairy to add to its usefulness.  Picking a favorite is rather difficult, but I am absolutely loving my Aegislash right now...
 
Next up is Dragon.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Dark

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 23 2013 · 111 views

-Scrafty
-Spiritomb
-Umbreon ("Umbra")
-Bisharp ("Muramasa")
-Greninja ("Gali")
-Yveltal
 
I actually rather like the Dark type.  It frustrates me that it's still the only type that doesn't have a Gym. (They must have noticed this by now, especially when they were arranging the World Championship in Black 2/White 2, so I have to believe that this is on purpose.) Most of these Pokemon were really great (with exception(s)), and Scrafty in particular was a big surprise--I never would have caught one if it hadn't been recommended, but it became a real star on my White team.  I'm also glad I got to use Spiritomb before they gave it a weakness (which I can't help but find a little disappointing...).  I don't know that I can pick a favorite, but since I'm just coming off of playing Y, my memories of training Gali the Greninja from a little Froakie are particularly fresh in my mind.
 
Coming up next: Steel.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Electric

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 22 2013 · 114 views

-Ampharos ("Reeper", no nickname)
-Raichu ("Pika", "Minnie")
-Luxray ("Shin")
-Zekrom
 
Hm, not a whole lot of diversity amongst my Electric types, huh?  Yes, I trained some Pikachu.  You're darn right I evolved them!  It's a fun type to have, although sometimes it can be difficult keeping them alive in battle.  If I had to pick a favorite...well, I might actually go with Luxray.  My Platinum Luxray is really, really awesome.  I'm sure I'll train more Electric types in the future, but I'm not really sure who or when...
 
Dark will be next.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Fighting

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 21 2013 · 96 views

-Primeape ("Mayumi")
-Poliwrath ("Paul")
-Lucario ("Aki," "Akamai")
-Infernape ("Sarutobi")
-Heracross
-Gallade ("Lancelot")
-Scrafty
-Keldeo
-Emboar ("Recoome")
-Blaziken (Mega)
 
Shoot, I never realized I trained so many Fighting types!  I never really gave much thought to the type as a whole, one way or the other, but I guess a lot of the Pokemon designs really catch my eye or something.  Looking back, most of these Pokemon were very dependable.  There were some exceptions, yes, but overall I'd say I've had a very positive experience with the Fighting type.  Lucario was a favorite at one point, but after hatching, evolving, raising, and getting a lot of use out of two of them, I'm...well, not exactly sick of it, but I don't want to train another one any time soon. (Though when Pokemon Bank comes out, I'm definitely letting one or both of them spend some time as a Mega Lucario.)
 
Next up: Electric.

I Ran Into Sub Slizer Today

Kal and I were walking around when this spaceship pulled up, and then Sub Slizer poked his head out.

"Get in losers we're gonna throw some disks."
 
So we went with him.  Because who doesn't want to throw disks with a Slizer?

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Rock

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 20 2013 · 85 views

-Gigalith (2, neither have nicknames)
-Aurorus ("Celsius")
 
I never realized how few Rock types I've trained.  I suppose they do have a lot of weaknesses, don't they?  Hm.  Well anyway, Gigalith is one of the few Generation V Pokemon that I liked right away, and it became my absolute favorite Pokemon for a time.  Of course, now that I have an ice dino that can use a Hyper Beam that causes super effective damage to Dragons, Gigalith has some stiff competition.  So I can't decide.  I'd definitely like to use more Rock types in the future, because, quite frankly...they rock.  (*Pelted with Rock Blast*)
 
Next, I'll list my Fighting Pokemon.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Poison

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 19 2013 · 97 views

-Venusaur ("Saur", "Triffid" (Mega))
-Nidoking ("Arthur")
 
I'll be frank: I don't like Poison.  I'm perfectly fine with it having two Gyms and no legendaries, and I never had any real reason to put it on my team.  Of course, now that it has a type advantage over Fairy, it's infinitely more useful, so maybe I'll get more use out of it in the future.  All that being said, the Pokemon listed above were all absolutely phenomenal parts of my team.  My LeafGreen Venusaur was able to defeat my rival's Charizard.  My Mega Venusaur can obliterate Water types with Petal Blizzard and Fairy types with a Toxic/Venoshock combo.  My Nidoking, on top of the aforementioned Dragon-slaying duties, can decimate enemies with Earthquake and Poison Jab.  I love them all so much...but they are exceptions to the rule.  Though there are a small number of other Poison types I may like to use in the future.
 
Rock is coming up next.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Fire

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 18 2013 · 67 views

-Typhlosion ("Blaze," "Blaze Jr.")
-Ho-Oh ("Rudy")
-Infernape ("Sarutobi")
-Charizard
-Magmortar
-Victini
-Chandelure ("Lumiere")
-Emboar ("Recoome")
-Blaziken (Mega)
 
I like Fire.  Who doesn't like Fire?  Most of my teams tend to have Fire Pokemon on them, because there's nothing quite like incinerating your opponent's Pokemon to smoldering ash.  Although, I think I've already used most of the Fire Pokemon I've actually wanted to train.  Might be difficult to fill the spot in the future...well, I have a few more candidates.  My Typhlosion from Gold was the first Pokemon I really bonded with, so it definitely has a special place in my heart, but my Chandelure was also simply amazing...this is why I'm not listing my favorites.
 
As I said yesterday, next is Poison.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Ground

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 17 2013 · 88 views

-Sandslash ("Slasher")
-Donphan ("Phanphare")
-Torterra ("Sprout")
-Garchomp ("Chomper", "Takea")
-Nidoking ("Arthur")
-Golurk ("Ralph")
 
I think Ground is a smart type to have on your team, what with it being the only weakness of pure Electric Pokemon.  Not only that, it has a lot of other useful advantages, and a lot of Ground Pokemon are just plain cool.  How cool, you ask?  The Nidoking and Golurk listed above were given the task of taking down Dragon Pokemon (Avalanche and Ice Punch, respectively), and they both excelled in that task.  Also, both Garchomps were capable of demolishing Flint's team by spamming Earthquakes before the enemy could even take their first turn.  I love them all so much...
 
Well, going by rarity of types, Fire and Poison are tied.  Fire will be next, Poison will be after that.

Pahrak's PokéRecords: Bug

Posted by Noise #0579 , Nov 16 2013 · 122 views

-Butterfree ("Cat")
-Heracross
-Genesect
 
As you may be able to guess, I'm not a huge fan of the Bug type either.  Might have something to do with my phobias.  Also, there aren't a whole lot of Bug Pokemon I find really interesting, and I've never thought of it as being a particularly powerful type.  I trained Butterfree because I felt like I should, but it didn't do me a whole lot of good.  Heracross and Genesect, though, were just fantastic, and it's impossible to choose which one I love more.  There are a few Bug Pokemon I've been thinking of trying out (Pinsir, Scyther/Scizor, maybe Scoliopede), but we'll have to wait and see if I get around to them.
 
Ground is on the way.
