Inktober 2019

Inktober is a challenge where you draw an item a day, generally following a list of prompts and using some sort of ink. 2019 is the third year I’ve done this and, aside from a couple of pics, I’m actually pretty happy with what I’ve drawn. A quick heads up, there are some bare breasts in here, because breasts are surprisingly fun to draw. Here’s all thirty one images, the stuff I drew for Inktober. Day 1 – Falena Falena are a weird amphibious race, part whale, part frog, part other things. This is the race that Epani sometimes appears… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon GO had its first premium event. Was it worth getting?

Pokemon GO has extensively used in-game events to spice up the playerbase or showcase a new pokemon, and for the most part they’ve been very well received. But the recent Colossal Discovery, heralding the return of the Regis and the arrival of their overlord Regigigas, received a tepid response from the community at best due to being a premium event. You had to shell out $7.99 if you wanted to experience the event spawns, complete event researches, and catch the early-access Regigigas at the end. Was it worth it? Do you have a ticket for A Colossal Discovery? Be sure… [Continue Reading]

The Sudden Ability To Somewhat Reliably Throw Pokeballs

When the special research tasks for Jirachi came out, there was a little bit of panic as one of the final tasks was listed as “Make three excellent throws in a row”. At the time, that seemed like a pretty difficult task, especially for a Pokemon that no one was going to realistically use in any form of combat, was guaranteed just to be for the Pokedex and in a special research quest that was actually incredibly easy, compared to the previous quests. Luckily, it was quickly discovered that the task was in fact just “Make three excellent throws”, a… [Continue Reading]

Being a Better Team GO Rocket Leader

While I’m a long, long way off from getting a gold Team GO Rocket medal for defeating 1,000 grunts, I managed to get the silver medal in record time and generally have no issue defeating these grunts, even if they throw a curve ball at me with a random Gyarados or Dragonite. Mostly because of Ty, my Stone Edge Tyranitar, because he’s so strong. Sure, I don’t have the higher level Purifier badge because stardust is expensive, but I beat almost all Team GO Rocket Pokestops on the first attempt. Sure, Team GO Rocket are trying. They even seem to… [Continue Reading]

The Many Problems With Implementing Arceus into Pokemon Go

One of the more minor problems with Pokemon in general is that they never realised how successful Pokemon would be, and ended up introducing the literal god of the Pokemon universe in Generation 4. A Mythical Pokemon by the name of Arceus. Which a 10 year old kid can catch in a Pokeball. Now, you can only really meet Arceus in the Generation 4 games, and Arceus has a lot of special abilities. Most notably, Arceus can change its Type based on what special item it’s holding, and its signature move, Judgement, deals damage based on Arceus’s type. Now that… [Continue Reading]

The Pixelmon Master

On September 25th, at about 10pm, I achieved something on the Pixelmon server that I play on. An achievement popped up, exclaiming that I had filled 100% of the Pokedex. For some reason, this had popped up at 807 owned Pokemon, because clearly Meltan and Melmetal aren’t really proper Pokemon with their own region yet. As far as the game was concerned though, I had managed to touch every single Pokemon and have every single Pokemon in my inventory or in my PC at least once. Somehow, despite having never touched a Yveltal or a Tornadus. On this particular Pixelmon… [Continue Reading]

Being Too Harsh On The Pokemon We Catch

I did a raid the other day and caught a Mewtwo. In any other Pokemon game, that would be an amazing achievement. Heck, if I had done that with a small group of players, it also would have been an achievement. Really, catching a Mewtwo in general in Pokemon Go is an achievement because that bastard will jump up and down and bitchslap your Pokeballs away like nobody’s business. Yet when I checked the stats of my freshly caught Mewtwo, I was disappointed. It was another Mewtwo with somewhat mediocre stats. Another mediocre Mewtwo to throw on the pile. I… [Continue Reading]

Mewtwo is Overrated. In Pokemon Go At Least.

When I first started doing raids on a regular basis, everyone was always like “where are your Mewtwos? Mewtwo is the best!” And I was always like “give me a break, I’ve never caught one!” or “I’m literally helping you fight a raid so I can catch one!”. As cool as Mewtwo is, as a Pokemon Go newbie, I was always recommended to load up on Mewtwos because Mewtwo was the damn best and I needed an army of them. Nowadays, I’m sitting here at level 37 and I don’t have a single powered up Mewtwo. Well I have one… [Continue Reading]

On Raichu

I feel so sorry for Raichu, Pikachu’s evolution. I feel so sorry for it, especially since I have personally insulted the electric mouse Pokemon, calling it a “fat bastard that no one likes”. I know Raichu is a fictional species in a series of fictional animals, and I know I have gone on and said far worse about other Pokemon (especially Dragonite) but Raichu doesn’t really deserve it. Raichu’s problem isn’t that it’s a bad Pokemon. It’s actually a pretty cool, stylized creature with unique features and looks totally like something Pikachu would evolve into. Raichu’s problem is simply that… [Continue Reading]

A Really Stupid Article About Pokemon Types

This is going to sound dumb, so bear with me. There are too many Pokemon types. Like, way too many. To the point that some of them are overlapping each other. And honestly? It might be cool to see a Pokemon type shake up in the future, so I’m just gonna go with this. Really, I don’t even have a place to stand when it comes to Pokemon and Pokemon types and balancing and all that. My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Go where the only real meta is “high attack and a type that’s super effective” and I had… [Continue Reading]
