Good morning to you, ladies and gents. First things first: many thanks to Sentry for filling in for me last Monday. I was off on a long-overdue week long vacation, during which I went totally dark as far as the internet was concerned. I still haven't caught up entirely-- particularly here at Destructoid, so my apologies if I'm not quite up on the latest memes and so forth. I DO like the look of the new redesign so far, though as I said I haven't spent a lot of time with it. By the way... who decided to start a Pokemon meme while I was away? That's just mean, guys.
Speaking of Pokemon, the recent release of Heart Gold and Soul Silver is as good an excuse as any to re-offer the special Johto starters I bred for PAX in 2008. If you'd like a set, merely send me a PM or E-mail and they're yours for the asking. I'll be happy to arrange a time to trade with you. Here's what I've created:
Each of the frankencritters I've worked up have two Egg moves they wouldn't normally start with and don't learn on their own.
Chikorita starts with Leech Seed and Leaf Storm in addition to its standard Tackle and Growl.
Cyndaquil begins with Will'o'Wisp as well as Flare Blitz plus its standard Quick attack and Leer.
Totodile comes packing Crunch and Dragon Dance combined with its standard Scratch and Leer. Teach it Waterfall and it becomes a very effective and versatile physical attacker.
I'm not especially difficult to get a hold of, just check my blog's sidebar for a variety of different methods.
Right, enough of the digital cockfighting for now. And since I want to get back to my Pokewalker (Originally I typed Pokewanker. That should get me on a few watch lists.) I'll try to keep things brief tonight. On to the recaps.
No community contests. Two weeks ago, my quote was the dialog about a moment of silence between Moe and Barney from Homer's triple Bypass, and it was identified by Stevil. Sentry added one to his recaps last week when he filled in for me, but no one seems to have noticed. Therefore, I'm gonna let it hang until someone picks up on it. (Hey, my game my rules. =p) If you're wondering what exactly I'm talking about, you might wanna read this.
