Thoughts on Latest Pokemon Sun/Moon Trailer (10/4/16)
Toa Smoke Monster posted a blog entry in The IslandIt seems like a new week trailer comes out every week for these two games. It's almost comical. Anyways, here's what the trailer shows us: 1. Alright, let's start off with the biggest reveal: The first evolution forms of the starters. Out of these three, Torracat is my favorite. It's color scheme looks really cool IMO. Dartrix looks cool too, especially with the way it uses its wings. I've also read things from people saying that he looks like Edgeworth from the Ace Attorney series, and I think he actually kind of does look like him. As for Brionne, it doesn't really excite me too much. I believe I've stated before on my blog that I've never really been a fan of the water starter Pokemon introduced throughout the Pokemon games, and that continues here. Nothing about it really gets my attention. But who knows, maybe its final evolution form will be more interesting. But between just these three, Torracat comes out on top and makes me want to start off with Litten even more. 2. The Festival Plaza looks interesting. It looks like it will have some fun activities for players to do and offer others ways for them to interact. It could be a lot of fun. 3. I really like the idea behind the Poke Pelago. Giving the Pokemon in your PC boxes something to do is a great idea that I'm surprised hasn't been done until now. Having them go on adventures to find items and train is a really cool way for players to interact with the Pokemon they've caught outside of their core six team. The only thing I'm wondering about is the 'wild Pokemon joining your game' part of the reveal. I guess this means that it could be another way for you to catch Pokemon. Maybe it could even be used as a way to catch Pokemon that you couldn't get otherwise? I guess we'll see in time. But regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing more of this part of the game when Sun/Moon are released. 4. Mega Evolution is making a return in these games, to the surprise of no one. Though I guess it's good for it to be confirmed to be in the game. 5. What would probably be considered to be the other big reveal of the trailer is the demo of the games coming out later this month. I wasn't really paying too much attention to this part of the trailer until it showed that you would use Ash-Greninja in the game and that you could transfer it to the main games once they are released. Now I'm not someone who normally plays demos because I like to play the final versions of games. But if this demo is going to give me an unique Pokemon to use the final version of the games, I just might get it and play through it. Though when it comes to Ash-Greninja, I have one big complaint about it: I HATE it's name. I don't like it in the anime, and I don't like it here. Sure, the Pokemon looks cool and I bet it will be great to use in battles. But I just can't stand its name. You can bet that if I do get this Pokemon, I'm taking advantage of the nickname option and changing it to something better. But anyways, those are the reveals from this new trailer. What do you all think of them?
Version Exclusive Pokemon Revealed in Sun/Moon
Toa Smoke Monster posted a blog entry in The IslandToday the latest Pokemon video was released, showing some of the Pokemon that will be exclusive to either Sun or Moon. I'm personally liked the Sun exclusive ones a little more, especially Rockruff's midday form of Lycanroc. It looks like a really cool Rock Type Pokemon. The midnight form of Lycanroc looks alright, but its color scheme just looks off to me. As for the two other version exclusives, Passimian, a Sun Version exclusive, looks really cool. I can see it's ability being very useful in double and triple battles, though I don't know how useful it would be in single battles. on the other hand, Moon will be getting Oranguru. While it think its has a good pairing of types, I'm just doesn't look that interesting to me. But that is just my opinion on it. The video also reveals that Pikachu and Eevee will get their own Z-Moves. Pikachu's looks like it will be really good, but I'm not sure how I feel about Eevee's. Sure, it is nice to get all its stats boosted up very quickly, but I don't know if that is a good use of a Z-Move. Especially since you can only use one Z-Move per battle. I did see someone post on Twitter that one could have Eevee use Baton Pass to transfer those stats to another Pokemon though, so I guess this Z-Move could have its uses if used right. So these are my thoughts on the Version Exclusive Pokemon and Z-Moves revealed today. What do you all think of them?
New Official Pokemon Sun/Moon Trailer
Toa Smoke Monster posted a blog entry in The IslandYesterday I talked about the new Pokemon that were confirmed to be real as well as posted links to videos to each one. Here is the official trailer with all of those videos, except this one also reveals their types and abilities. Here are my overall thoughts on these reveals. 1. I wasn't expecting so many of these to be electric type Pokemon. I figured Vikavolt and Togedemaru would be, but I wasn't expecting Tapu Koko to be as well. I would've thought it would be part bug, part another type. Not that I'm complaining, since I like electric types a lot. 2. Speaking of Tapu Koko, I like the new info we get on it here. Especially the fact that its the guardian of its own island. 3. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Grubbin, Charjabug, and Vikavolt line is the first full evolutionary line revealed for Gen 7. I really hope its good, as I would like to use Vikavolt on a team when I get one of these games. 4. I would've thought that Cutiefly would've been an electric and/or flying type Pokemon. But being a bug and fairy type works too. 5. I really like Zygarde's new forms. They look really cool. Well, that's all I got to say about this trailer. What do you guys think of it?
New Pokemon from Sun/Moon Revealed
Toa Smoke Monster posted a blog entry in The IslandSo seven new Pokemon from Sun and Moon, who were leaked early online, were confirmed to be real today. Each one has a video that was released to confirm that they're going to be in the game. The following are these videos and my thoughts on the Pokemon themselves. Probably the Pokemon that has been talked about the most since these seven were revealed. I've seen some people say that it looks like a cross between a Pikachu and Togepi, though I personally think it looks more like a cross between a Pikachu and a Qwilfish thanks its its spikes. Still, I think it looks cool enough. This one is my favorite out of the reveals. I love how this Pokemon looks. Hopefully it will have some good stats and/or abilities so it will be good to use on a team. I kind of get a vibe that this Pokemon is one of those Bug types you find towards the beginning of the game that is useful early in your adventure but its stats don't keep up with it as the game goes on. But who knows, I could be wrong on that. Plus, I think it looks cool, so that's something. Interesting enough, Bruxish's video actually shows off its ability, while the others only show their respective Pokemon using a move on an opponent. It's ability appears to stop priority moves, which could be useful in the right circumstances. Time will tell to see if this ability is the only good thing about it, or if it has more to offer. This Pokemon reminds me of a dragon with an old dog's face. When it comes to designs, this Pokemon definitely isn't my favorite out of this new bunch. But it could still be a good Pokemon to use. Time will tell on that as well. This Pokemon just may have the most accurate name I've seen a Pokemon have. It looks like a cross between a Fletching and a bumblebee IMO. I could see this Pokemon being a flying/bug type or flying/electric. Either way, it is really cute. This one is probably my second favorite out of the bunch. I love the spaceship look it has. It gives me a Metroid or Starfox vibe. So these are the seven new Pokemon revealed today. Which one is your favorite and least favorite?
Thoughts on New Pokemon from Sun/Moon and Spider-Man PS4 Teaser
Toa Smoke Monster posted a blog entry in The IslandWith all the reveals going on at E3 this year, only info on two other games besides The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind have really caught my attention so far. Those games would be Pokemon: Sun/Moon and the Spider-Man PS4 teaser that was revealed. I figured I'd give my thoughts on both of them in this one entry. So let's start with Pokemon: A few new Pokemon are revealed in this new trailer. Pikipek is probably my favorite out of the reveals. Then again, I've always liked the flying type Pokemon one can usually always find at the beginning of any Pokemon game, and Pikipek continues that trend for me. I'm not that big of a fan of Yungoos, however. I don't like how its jaw looks. It just looks weird to me. As for Grubbin, it looks cool IMO. I like the parasitic look it has. It makes me wonder what it looks like when it evolves. Then there is Magearna. With the ability it has, I bet it will used in a lot of double battles when the games come out. Plus, it being a fairy and steel type makes it even cooler IMO. But I think the biggest reveal in this trailer is obviously the Battle Royal. This looks like it will be a lot of fun to play. I'm already looking forward to trying it out when Sun/Moon are released in November. Hopefully the Battle Royal will be as fun as it looks here. Now onto Spider-Man: I've stated before that I'm not the biggest fan of exclusives when it comes to games. I understand why some companies make some of their games exclusives, but that doesn't mean I have to be happy about it. I bring this up because this new Spider-Man game is a PS4 exclusive. As I'm someone who doesn't own a PS4, this means I won't be playing it unless I get one. (Though I will admit that the PS4 has had some good games come out on it over the years that I've wanted to try out, like this Spider-Man game, The Last of Us, the Uncharted games, and so worth. So I may think about getting one in the future...) Anyways, as for the game itself, this Spider-Man game looks great. The music for it sounds good too. It definitely got me pumped up for the game when I first heard it. Also, in the description box for the video, it says that this is an experienced Spider-man who has helping the city for awhile. Though I imagine the game will probably give a brief summary of how he got his powers, I do like that this isn't an origin story for Spider-Man, as everyone and their mother probably knows how he got his powers by now. Probably the biggest reveal in the teaser is Spider-Man's suit. I've never seen him wear a suit like this before. Then again, I'm more familiar with the suits we wears in the movies than what he wears in the comics. Regardless, I really like the new suit. I think that its color scheme looks really good on him. It actually kind of reminds me of Samus Aran's PED Power Suit from the early stages of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. I don't know why, but I just get that vibe from it when I look at it. Overall, it looks like it will be a really cool game. If I ever get a PS4, I'll probably try it out myself. P.S. Serious question for those who know more about Spider-Man than I do: Has Spider-Man ever worn a suit similar to the in this trailer in the comics? Like I said, I haven't seen one like it before and I'm wondering if its a new suit first introduced in this game.
