Mega Evolution: Yays and Nays

Hello everyone and welcome to an exciting new edition of Pokémonth! Goodness, an entire month has nearly come and gone, and hardly a post to show for it! Some people may not know, but Pokémonth originally started in celebration of the release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y back in 2013. Now, three years later, another game that’s shaking up the rules of Pokémon is being released, and so I thought it would be nice to go back and take a look at one of the big shake ups of X and Y’s release: Mega Evolution.   Read more


Ah, smell that in the air, folks?  No, it’s not the smell of freshly fallen leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and early Christmas decorations (though those are all great).  It’s the smell of…Pokémonth!  It’s that time of year again when I break out all of the stuff involving Pokémon that I’ve been brewing over lately and put it to good use. 😉

For all of you wondering, I will continue to work on posting about my recent trip to Brazil, and I hope to even do some posting about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.  I’ve been really looking forward to this month, not just because this will have been my third month celebrating, but because I’ll be talking on things like Mega Evolution, Pokémon Sun and Moon, and inter-game timelines.  I hope you guys are looking forward to this as much as I am, because I want to make this the best Pokémonth yet.  See you guys soon!

Pokemon Numbers 6, 5.5, 5, 4.5, 4, 3, 2, 1.5, and 1, Eevee and the Eeveelutions!

EeveeWhoa, what a mouth full of a title, hmm?  Anyways, welcome to the final post of Pokémonth!  Before we begin talking about my most favorite of fluffy creatures, I just want to clarify that if I didn’t want to have all of the “eeveelutions” in one post, Mewtwo would’ve been bumped up all the way to PKMN #3 on my list, right behind Umbreon and this puffball to my left here.  Now, on with the post!

Meet Eevee, the Evolution PKMN!  Eevee is a Normal-type, with a weakness only to Fighting-types, and an inability to harm Ghost-types.  Eevee is 1′, with the common abilities Run Away and Adaptability, or the hidden ability Anticipation.  Eevee has a very unique and almost flimsy genetic code that allows them to have the largest variety of PKMN evolutions in PKMN history.  Normally I like to write my posts with the PKMN in order of my list, but since all of the other PKMN in this post are “eeveelutions”, otherwise known as evolutions of Eevee, I figured it would be good to cover the base ‘mon first.

Pokemon No. 7, Mewtwo

MewtwoAh, the mighty Mewtwo.  Mewtwo is the Genetic PKMN, with the common ability Pressure, or the hidden ability Unnerve.  She’s a 6′ 7″ Psychic-type PKMN, with weaknesses to Bug-types, Dark-types, and Ghost-types, but she also has strengths against Fighting-types and Poison-types.

Mewtwo is my Favorite Legendary PKMN, but she also has one of the saddest beginning stories in the PKMN series, and the rest of it has been a variety of ups and downs.  However, I like to think that lately, Mewtwo’s life has taken a turn for the better, and here’s why. Read more

Pokemon No. 10, Ampharos, Pokemon No. 9, Empoleon, and Pokemon No. 8, Arcanine

So, I kind of realized that I’ve run out of time to talk about one PKMN per day, and so the last of these will be covered as such.  Of course, there is an upside to this anyways, it’s time for some of my favorite PKMN!

Check it out, it’s Ampharos*!  Ampharos is the Light PKMN, as well as an Electric-type, ampharoswith the common ability Static or the hidden ability Plus.  She is 4′ 7″, with a weakness to Ground-types, but a strength against Flying-types and Water-types.  Pretty sweet, right?  The only problem is, Ground-types and their moves are pretty easy to come around, so that can put a major damper on the mood.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Amphy is completely useless!  Woops, sorry guys, I guess that slipped out.  You see, these three PKMN I’m going to talk to are my three Favorite Common PKMN.  I’ve trained all three of these, sometimes multiple times, and I’ve made special memories with each one.  For instance… Read more

Pokemon No. 12, Absol, And Pokemon No. 11, Yveltal

Welcome to another meeting of the Misunderstood Pokemon club, our two members will be meeting shortly.

AbsolFirst, we have the great and noble Absol.  Absol is unjustly known as the PKMN of disaster, and the fact that he’s a Dark-type doesn’t help his case.  He’s 3′ 11″, with weaknesses against Fighting-types, Fairy-types, and Bug-types, but a strength against Ghost-types and Psychic-types.  He comes with the common abilities Super Luck or Pressure, or the hidden ability Justified; he also has the ability to Mega Evolve.  As you might have guessed, I have placed Absol in the Misunderstood Pokemon category, along with one other friend of his.  But, before we start talking giant, flying, destruction-bringing turkey, let’s get to know Absol a bit more.

Pokemon No. 13, Lapras

Lapras_Pokemon_Mystery_Dungeon_Explorers_of_Time_and_DarknessBehold, the graceful and mystical Lapras.  Lapras is known as the transport pokémon because of her tendency to escort people in need across large bodies of water.  With a big, caring heart and a unique ability to understand human speech, Lapras have been trusting the human race for years; if only that trust wasn’t misplaced…but I’ll get back to that later.  Lapras is a 8′ 2″ Ice and Water-type pokémon with weaknesses to Fighting-types, Rock-types, Grass-types, and Electric-types, but she also has strengths against Fire-types, Ground-types, Rock-types, and Grass-types.  That’s a lot of power for one sea monster!  She has the common abilities Shell Armor and Water Absorb, or the hidden ability Hydration.  If I had to put her in a category, I would have to place her in the Best Representation of A Real World Monster.

Pokemon No. 14, Jirachi

jirachiOh Jirachi, how I do love thee.  Jirachi is the Wish pokémon, with a height of merely 1′, and a great tendency to nap.  Jirachi is a Steel and Psychic-type pokémon, with weaknesses to Ghost-types, Dark-types, Fire-types, and Ground-types, and a strength against Fighting-types and Poison-types.  Jirachi has the common ability Serene Grace, and because it has yet to be reintroduced in generation six, when hidden abilities became available, it has no hidden ability of its own.  Jirachi is steeped in lore and hard to come by, both in legend and in game.  Jirachi holds a special place in my heart and this blog, most specifically in the form of the title Favorite Pokémon I Don’t Have.

Pokemon No. 15, Lilligant

Before we begin, I’d just like to say that I actually have a good reason for not posting the last two days: my wifi went down.  But, now I’m back, don’t worry y’all.  Now, to Pokémonth!

LilligantLilligant, the Flowering pokémon.  Lilligant is a 3′ 7″ Grass-type, with the common abilities Chlorophyll or Own Tempo, or the hidden ability Leaf Guard.  Being a Grass-type, it has a natural weakness to Flying-types, Fire-types, Ice-types, Poison-types, and Bug-types, but a strength against Water-types, Rock-types, and Ground-types.  It’s tough being a Grass-type, especially a Grass-type with such weak stats as Lilligant’s.  However, Lilligant’s beauty and charm has won her a special place in my heart in the form the Most Elegant PKMN*.
