Pokemon No. 29, Slowpoke

SlowpokeSlowpoke, the Dopey pokémon and current head of the “Most Unfortunate” category.  I do believe that it’s species name explains why, poor fellow.  It is 3′ 11″, has the abilities Oblivious and Own Tempo, with the Hidden Ability Regenerator, and a weakness to Ghost-types, Dark-types, Bug-types, Electric-types, and Grass-types.  While Slowpoke is a very cute pokémon, and I’m certain it’s very powerful in the right circumstances, I just don’t have a love for him the way I do other pokémon.  Please, allow me to explain.

Pokemon No. 30, Magikarp

magikarpGreetings strangers!  Please welcome Magikarp, the fish Pokemon.  A water-type Pokémon, Magikarp comes with the common ability Swift Swim, or the rare hidden ability, Rattled.  It is 2′ 11″, has a weakness to Electric types and Grass types, and a strength against Fire types and Ground types.  Before I get started on why Magikarp is at the bottom of my list, I would like to explain my categorizing first.

Woah, A Pokemon And Zelda Title in one?! Pokemon Courage!

(Note: This post was originally designed as an April Fools prank, but I decided to just pitch it as an idea and leave it as written.  If you actually enjoy this idea, let me know!  Maybe we can get this to go viral and have Nintendo actually pay attention to us.)  Greetings humans, animals, and assorted extra-terrestrial life!  This may not be what you’d normally expect out of a Zelda game, but it’s something I’ve desired for ages.  I feel like the idea is solid, the story could be amazing, and it’s certainly worth a shot.  Help spread the buzz on twitter with #PokemonCourage.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

I’m not sure about the rest of the world right now, but where I live it’s cold and snowy.  I mean, the snow is currently as high as my dog’s belly.  Sadly for me, I am not much of a fan of the cold, but it did inspire me, because not only do I hate the cold, I also hate cold, snowy video game levels.  And while skidding on the road for a few seconds in you car is bad, skidding into a never ending abyss can be significantly worse.  So I thought I’d feature a few snow levels and give my thoughts on them.

Eevee’s Fan Corner!

Now, I’m one of those fans who can, say, look at their favorite pokemon and say “I want to make something like this!”  So, I contacted my friend Nyxira (who also happens to be my editor and artist), and told her my wacky idea of doing a fan post featuring pokemon we’d created.  Hence,  Eevee’s fan corner.  This post is going to feature art we did of pokemon we want, and there may be more in the future.  Enjoy!

A Fairy New Subject

Everyone is well aware of the games pokemon X and pokemon Y, but quite a few of my friends at least don’t quite understand the fearsomeness of the latest pokemon type to be added to the roster.  Thinking about that, as well as what on earth I was going to do for PokeMonth, led me to decide to cover the latest the pokemon world has to offer.
