    Pokemon of the Week #31 (6/7/2014)

    Klinklang


    Klinklang, the Gear Pokemon. Its red core functions as an energy tank. Said core is rotated at high speed for a rapid energy charge. It fires the charged energy through its spikes into an area.

    I intentionally picked a Pokemon I didn't like because I felt like trashing somefin. Holy shit Klinklang is stupid. I mean, in my opinion, it has one of the absolute worst designs in all of Pokemon. I have no problem with a gear Pokemon, no problem at all. Actually, the energy core gear concept mentioned in its Pokedex entries is fairly cool. However, Klinklang fails to be anyfin close to a good design. It's a few gears with stupid faces, a red gear that functions as an energy core, and a rim of spikes surrounding it. The energy core and spikes are somewhat cool, I guess, but the rest of the design isn't appealing whatsoever and is ridiculously uncreative. When I first saw Klink, I was like "well, that's stupid, but maybe it will have cool looking gear-themed evolutions". Nope. Just more damned Klink. And this isn't a butterfly scenario where there's a chance of getting a cool gear-themed Pokemon in the future, like how there's a fuckbillion butterfly and moth Pokemon, nope, this was the one chance and they ruined it.

    At least Electrode has amusing facial expressions.

    Competitively, Klinklang is nothing too hot, but it's alright. It has good attack, high defense, and surprisingly, above average speed. Its only decent ability, Clear Body, at least has a few uses, like ignoring Indimid8 and Sticky Web, it could be worse. It also has good defensive typing. Its biggest problem is that, a la pre generation VI Flareon, it has "no moves". It literally has five viable moves. Five. Namely, Shift Gear, Gear Grind, Wild Charge, Return, and Substitute. There are other moves that it can possibly make some use of, I guess, like Magic Coat and Thunder Wave, but they aren't desirable for a sweeper set, aka Klinklang's best chance at being successful. Anyways, Shift Gear is actually really good, hands down one of the best boosting moves in the game. It doubles speed and raises attack one stage, so it's like Dragon Dance, only Klinklang doesn't need to invest anything/much in speed since it outruns almost everyfin at +2. Gear Grind is also a great move, aside from its lacking accuracy. For all intents and purposes, it's a more powerful but less accurate version of Iron Head (which Klinklang lacks for some reason) that hits twice. The fact that it hits twice can be beneficial or detrimental. On the plus side, it can break through Focus Sashes and Substitutes. On the minus side, it has twice the chance of activating the negative effects of abilities like Static and Flame Body. Wild Charge and Return hit Pokemon pure steel coverage misses out on, which is a lot. With Wild Charge, it can hit water-types a lot harder, but is stuck with hitting fire and steel types with a base 90 power move, while still failing to solve the electric-type issue. With Return, neutral hits are a bit more effective, but water and steel types are more problematic. Sadly, running both moves isn't really a good idea, as Substitute is arguably the best choice for the fourth slot, for its ability to block status, among other things. This shit coverage is Klinklang's main issue.

    I'm not writing one for Klink and Klang since they're the same thing as Klinklang only in fewer number. By the way, regarding onomatology, I don't have any issue with the family's names. While obviously uncreative, they have some cute and simplistic onomatopoeic appeal, and I've always enjoyed families with a name theme, like Abra, Kadabra, and Alakazam. They're are definitely not the worst names out there.

    Edit: I forgot the fanart, I shall find some and edit it in.

    Write one for Vanilluxe. I'm genuinely interested to hear a more detailed rant about why you hate it so much.

    Snorlax this time, because I already wrote out the competitive stuff for a Pokemon of the Week in BMGf's battle section.

    Pokemon of the Week #32 (6/24/2014)

    Snorlax


    Snorlax, the Sleeping Pokemon. It is very lazy. It is not satisfied unless it eats over 880 pounds of food every day. When it is done eating, it goes promptly to sleep. Its stomach can digest any kind of food, even if it happens to be moldy or rotten. It is such a docile Pokémon that there are children who use its big belly as a place to play.

    Snorlax is one of my personal favorite Generation I Pokemon, not totally sure why. It has a good, simplistic design, but I wouldn't call it anyfin more than that. It always appears to be sleeping, but don't be deceived, as it keeps its eyes shut even when awake. It opens its eyes once in a while, which is always rather humorous. But more notable than its usually closed eyes is its immensely obese appearance. Indeed, Snorlax is very heavy. Despite this, it has impressive physical strength, which is common among other fat characters in video games. One thing I like about Snorlax is that it's not directly copy/pasted from something that already exists. It is very bear-like, but it isn't as obvious as Ursaring, Beartic, or Pangoro. It's also sort of cute in both behavior and appearance, especially how it lets kids play on its belly. I don't like how it stands up in XY, I preferred when it layed on the ground while fighting.

    Here's a big competitive rant I posted for the BMGf Pokemon of the Week,

    Spoiler Alert!


    If you don't want to read all of that, Snorlax, in short, plays well as a bulky Pokemon. Its very high HP grants it above average physical bulk and amazing special bulk, allowing it to take hits like a boss. It also hits hard off of its high attack stat, and can spread paralysis with Body Slam if it wants to. Its ability, Thick Fat, allows it to take on fire-types and ice-types particularly well. Snorlax does lack a recovery move, even Slack Off, but it is one of the best Resttalk users in the game, which is fitting, considering its motif. Body Slam, Return, Earthquake, Curse, Crunch, Pursuit, Rest, Sleep Talk, and Whirlwind are the moves it uses best, although it has other options.



    Munchlax


    Munchlax, the Big Eater Pokemon. It wolfs down its weight in food once a day, swallowing food whole with almost no chewing. In its desperation to gulp down food, it forgets about the food it has hidden under its fur.

    I like Munchlax quite a bit too. It's cuter than Snorlax, though I don't like how its eyes are usually open...they were closed in its DP sprite, like Snorlax's, and I kind of miss that. It's a somewhat amusing and silly Pokemon, forgetting about food it's sloppily stashed in its fur, and moving much quicker when it sees food.

    Compared to most baby Pokemon, Munchlax is very good. It was actually in RU for a while in BW, because of its massive special bulk and high physical bulk when holding Eviolite. Even higher than its evolution's, I believe, although it has less attack power and cannot hold another item. It's also very crippled if it ever ends losing its Eviolite, whereas Snorlax can at least still function without an item.

    Some fanart of both of them:

    Pokemon of the Week #33 (8/29/2014)

    Shulk


    Shulk, the Foresight Pokemon. This male-only Pokemon species is particularly nerdy and antisocial, and enjoys tinkering with equipment in his lab. His guardian, Dickson, is a giant help in getting him to actually go outside. He is friends with Reyn, Fiora, and Fiora's brother Dunban, who supports Shulk's obvious infatuation with his sister. After certain events get set in motion, he develops an extreme hatred of the mechanical inhabitants of Mechonis -- the Mechon. Said events result in him discovering his ability to wield the legendary Monado sword, granting him the power of foresight.

    I'm quite a fan of Shulk. While I prefer other similar Pokemon, such as Riki and Alvis, he's still pretty cool. He's one of the Pokemon lucky enough to be playable in Smash Bros, and that earns him a load of bonus points. His design is also quite good, I particularly like the metal circles his jacket has. His shorts also look rather neat, the design as a whole is rather mechanical looking and I appreciate that. I'm not entirely sure what's up with those things on his legs, though. Is it some sort of brace?

    In competitive, Shulk is pretty good. He has high speed and attack, making him a good sweeper. His offensive movepool includes strong attacks like Monado Buster, Cyclone, and Back Slash. He also has some neat support moves, such as Enchant and Light Heal, but one may find these difficult to actually use due to his low bulk.

    Some fanart of Shulk:
