A little conservative of you, Game Freak!

May 30, 2010

Well, would you look at that! Zoroa and Zoroark are no longer the only Pokémon known of the 5th generation!

The very starters of Pokémon Black and White versions have been published!

To my frustration I can’t find any pictures on google to post on this blog yet, but you can read it all right here: http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/pokemon.shtml

Their names (in Japanese, as they are so new they haven’t got any English names yet) are respectively Tsutaja, Pokabu and Mijumaru!

By respectively I mean in the order Grass, Fire, Water. The way Game Freak always does…

You would almost think that even Game Freak have become tired of having the same starter types through all games, but no!  Just look!

And now, finally for the new starters!

Woooo! They look quite different from the previous starters, maybe except the Grass type, who look a liiittle, teensy tiny bit like Treecko. Like it the best, though…

Pokéjournal # 2

May 18, 2010

Well, I should really blog a bit more often, but it’s a bit hard when you actually have to make an effort of finding one to call your own.

Anyway and anyhow, I will blog when I have a computer to use, like… now!

It’s been a long time since I even have blogged a journal of my progress in the different games.

Starting with Diamond: I’m still trying to fill in my Pokédex, but paused in the quest to train up Milotic and Yanmega up to lv. 60. Finally Yanmega knows Bug Buzz, which means it’s more powerful now. It was a playing hell without Bug Buzz on it. Now Charmander is at the top of my team, heping me fill up my Pokédex. However, I do hesitate to evolve it, as I am concidering training some of the other ‘mons first… but what the hell…!

In Platinum I have caught the Giratina in Distortion World, which was an epic battle to remember in Pokéhistory. That is actually now become a little while ago, so I have just reached Sunyshore City to take on the Gym Leader there.

In SoulSilver I have fought Team Rocket in the Slowpoke Well and cleared the Azalea Town Gym, which have got a nice makeover. Goldenrod City is the current city I’m in and…oh sigh, the music… In Silver version the Goldenrod music was very tranquil, but in its remake it’s more like the busy and big city it relly is, not a bad word to the Gameboy Color music!

To make up for the lack of the tranquility in Goldenrod, Game Freak has made a good new version of the National Park, theme… Oh, beautiful… *sniff*

Really one of their best compositions – ever!!! Just listen!

And another route for your PokéWalker available!

May 9, 2010

Long time no Pokémon… Well, that’s a complete lie! Lots and lots of Pokégaming while I haven’t blogged!

Well, Nintendo keeps on giving away Event stuff wi-fi and this time it’s another PokéWalker route called Winner’s Path!

Here, you can find the Pokémon Beldum, Bronzor, Duskull, Munchlax, Horsea and… Magikarp(?).

What has ever been special with a Magikarp, the poor fish that have haunted Pokéfans through every Pokémon versions there is? The answer is: Bounce!

This very special Magikarp knows Bounce, a Flying type move that seems a lot like the HM Fly, except it isn’t a HM it has a little less accuracy and has a chance of paralyzing besides being strong in base power. Bounce is a good move to have when Magikarp evolves into Gyarados, which is Water/Flying.

It isn’t just a special Magikarp that’s available in the route; the Beldum knows Zen Headbutt, the Horsea knows Muddy Water and the Munchlax knows Metronome and Selfdestruct(!!!!!).

So download it, if you can and good luck finding the most rare ones!
