The Latest Craze

Posted by Ballom , May 09 2008 · 124 views

Pokemon
Iny my endless scheming to make A Merging of Dimensions the most popular blog on the face of the earth, I have come up with the idea of a new system: Pokemon of the Week. Each week on Friday (in California) I will post an entry describing, critiquing, and discussing in depth a certain Pokemon. And I'll probably end up doing a Duelmaster Card of the Week as well.

First up, as PotW #1, is . . .

Cherrim!

Cherrim is a really interesting Pokemon. Besides Castform, it is the only Pokemon which changes form with the weather, something unique in its own right. Also, Cherrim is a great player on any Sunny Day team, with it's ability, Flower Gift. It allows Cherrim to transform in the sun, and raises Cherrim's and an ally's Sp. Attack by 1.5x in Double Battle. Therefore, in a Double, pair Cherrim with Groudon and a special based Pokemon for great results.

A good moveset for Cherrim would be this:

Cherrim @ Heat Rock
Modest Naure
6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 SpD
~ Sunny Day
~ Solarbeam
~ Protect
~ Hidden Power (Fire)

This allows Cherrim to set up Sunny Day, attack decently, and stall for a turn to help out it's partner (in Double). Of course, while weak overall, this set does exploit Cherrim's strengths, and uses its best attacks available. Grasswhistle was be used instead of Protect too, if you're feeling lucky enough to try its accuracy.

Ballom's Rating: 3/5
While Cherrim is a good team player, and is neat to use, it's too fragile for my tastes, and has too shallow a movepool.

Good review. How do you pick these Pokemon?

Why do I keep thinking Cherubi's the evo?

Thanks.

The Pokemon I pick as I wish, though Cherrim was picked since it fits the season, as it is nearing summer now.

And now you have me thinking Cherubi's the evo! Augh!

I'd find this more interesting if you did "Star Gate Episode of the Week". =D

Exactly what is is Star Gate? And I wouldn't do that, this blog is only Pokemon and Duelmasters, silly.

If I May Quote Myself

In blog entry "An Analogy -- Life is like a Rubik's Cube: sometimes you need to screw everything up to get it all right."
Or everyone. Posted Image

In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.

In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.

In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD

In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.

In response to "How often do you accidentally post in the wrong topic?
Never. I have these magical devices called eyes and this thing called a brain which prevent that. They're quite handy.

In "The weakest element"
Xenon, or perhaps Radon and Argon. Really, a Toa of Noble Gas can't control much at all, due to how few things they bond with. Xenon hexafluoride is all that immediately comes to mind, in fact.

In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.

In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.

In "Mask powers"
Hurr durr.

In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.

In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know. :P

In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
