Cblog Recaps of 11/06/13 + Striderisms!

   0

These caps are late, but for a good reason!



Just kidding! It's Pokemon related!

I spent the better part of my night grinding through Battle Maison to earn points for some precious battle items like the TM for Volt Switch, the Assault Vest, and Choice items like Specs or Band. Because guess what? I'm finally satisfied with my battle stable and team! Let me walk you through a basic run down of my favorite team.


Galvantula
My all important lead. In this case, a suicidelead since his defenses are so frail. But all he needs to do is drop Sticky Web then drop Thunder on everything until he dies. If, however, something comes in that's unreasonable to fight, he uses Volt Switch to keep momentum while switching to something better. Sticky Web is the crux of my team here since the speed drop helps my bulky Pokemon outspeed their adversaries.

Bisharp
The Pokemon that came to mind when I created a Sticky Web focused team was Bisharp. This guy throws the strongest Sucker Punches possible but is as slow as a run down truck. Even with Web support, he'll get outspeeded by the faster things but nothing will like taking a 160 ATK Sucker Punch regardless. Plus, steel/dark is surprisingly good for switching in on resistances.

Blastoise
The mega on my team. Bulky as hell after mega evolution and extremely threatening with Hydro Pump. He's also my spinner for getting rid of spikes and rocks. Ghost wants to come in and spinblock? I hope they like a Mega Launcher boosted Dark Pulse (hint: no they don't).


Togekiss
You thought Bisharp was bad? Here's a reunion with paraflinch Togekiss. Only now, he's not running T-Wave because he already has Web support! Have fun being naturally outspeed by this fat dove as he flinch haxes you with Air Slash. And Togekiss is now Fairy/Flying so he just go straight up buffed. Remember neutral fighting damage thanks to normal/flying? Fairy/flying 4x resists fighting. Have fun dismantling this flying tank.

Klefki
Priority dual screen support baby. Plus priority T-Wave. This little guy is my emergency stop Pokemon when someone's running away with a sweep. Sweepers hate paralysis if you didn't know. Nearly no speed to speak of when paralyzed.

Tyranitar
Here's an interesting thing. TTar has weak Sp.Defense but it doesn't take into account the automatic Sp.Defense boost it gets from starting a sandstorm. It's Sp.Defense gets moderate at that point. Put an Assault Vest on it though and it becomes a ridiculous mixed wall without even trying. Good luck hurting it as it breaks you down with STAB Stone Edge and Crunch.

My Togekiss was crushing a bad Japanese randy the other night. His team was running all ubers: Xerneas, Yvetal, Mega Blaziken, Mewtwo, etc. He rage quit but not before getting humiliated by Klefki and Togekiss tag teaming his poor ubers with the paraflinch combo, not to mention the Web support I mentioned. As soon as I brought his Mewtwo to the red and I decided to get a Wish up with Togekiss, he had enough and I lost my chance for a Vs. Recorder. The best moment still had to be his Xerneas trying to set up a Geomancy only to be stopped cold in its tracks by a flinching Air Slash; priceless. Togekiss was buffed so much with its retconned typing.

* - Some Jinx guy says stuff into a microphone

* - Is a game review proof? As long as the masses are unthinking consumers, yes

* - Why weird games and Tomba should be rated by David Schwimmer heads


A - EMERGENCY STOP! Sterling's gone! We need to figure out Podtoid quick! All hands on deck!

A - When Spyro died, he came back an action figure. Lo and behold his marketing empire now!


I - You lost me on your introduction, RRP

I - ShadyDevil is from Gamershub. Nifty!


T - Let's have fun speculating on Blizzcon and expansions. The Dark Below sounds awesome!

R - Remember Doom? El Dango remembers. Fondly. Loved it. He fucking owns it.






R - Jim landed on Escapist. It wasn't hard really because [fat joke]


S - Nothing to see here folks. Just a brain fart on developers

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Special little places

In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
