Okay, the revelation that Mina, the Fairy-type Captain in Sun and Moon, will actually have a trial in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon has me thinking we might get even more trials. Of course, that would require more Captains, but I can certainly think of some Trainers from Sun and Moon who would be qualified for the roles, considering what Pokemon types they used in Sun and Moon. Now, do keep in mind that this is pure Wild Mass Guessing, and I have absolutely no way of knowing if any of this will actually be true or not.
For a Captain for a Poison-type Trial, I think it would probably be the former big sis of Team Skull, Plumeria. She was already moving to life on the straight and narrow by the end of Sun and Moon, so I think, given her preference…Read more >
Okay, I know I did a blog post about everything I like in Pokemon Sun and Moon, but no game is perfect, and Sun and Moon is no exception. So here's a list of the things I don't like about it.
First, the change to the fishing mechanic. In every other generation of Pokemon, it was possible to go fishing literally anywhere there was a body of water, provided you had a fishing rod. But in Sun and Moon, they have inexplicably changed it to only being able to fish in specific areas where there are piles of rocks visible underwater. And even one of the semi-good things to come out of this, rare fishing spots where it's a little easier to land rare Pokemon, isn't really that useful considering that as soon as a catch actually gets reeled in, that's…Read more >
Okay, I have to say, there are quite a few changes that Sun and Moon made to the core mechanics of Pokemon, as well as some memorable characters, that I quite liked. So with the sequels of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon set to come out soon, I think I'll go over them.
Also, be warned when I go over the characters, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!
For example, Ride Pokemon. I always got frustrated in past games when I had to travel through an area where a whole bunch of hazards were in my path, because it meant I would need to make sure my party had at least one HM slave to help navigate that area. But with Sun and Moon, that is a thing of the past! Now we have the Ride Pager, which can be used to summon Ride Pokemon, who are not in a player's party at all,…Read more >
Okay, the south coast of the United States is still reeling from the record-breaking Hurricane Harvey, which dumped over, and now we're getting hit by another massive hurricane! Hurricane Irma, the biggest Atlantic hurricane recorded (it's the size of France!) has just hit Florida...and I honestly don't know how many more people are going to be victims of this hurricane before it dies out!
Everyone, can we have a moment of silence for everyone who was a victim of Harvey, and for everyone who has been and will be a victim of Irma? Because those people are going to be needing our prayers.Read more >
Okay, we're going to get yet another new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this fall. Of course, I am talking about Thor: Ragnarok.
And judging by the trailers, it looks like it's going to be fairly awesome.
It will feature the return of Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner. That's right, the Hulk will be returning, and in, of all things, what looks like it's going to be a loose adaptation of the greatly beloved Planet Hulk story from the comic books.
It's also going to bring in Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, as was promised by the post credits scene from Strange's own movie.
Of course, we're also going to see the return of Tom Hiddleston's Loki.
For antagonists, we're going to see Hela, the Norse goddess of death, played by Cate Blanchett,…Read more >
