So I’m going through my steam list and pruning all the games I’m never going to play. I’ve tried out a few of the smaller games and I have to say Bit.Trip Beat is pretty fun but it really screws with the eyes. Same with

boxeswithguns except that’s not that fun. I’ve hidden like 100 games so far. I just have so many…

Bleh. Why have I gotten myself back into collecting Magic cards? >.> I don’t even play it. Though tbh I don’t play the Pokemon TCG either and I grab heaps of them.

Gah… Why am I back into card collecting??? 😦

Pokemon Moon #4

This contains some spoilers.

Well, I’ve discovered the joys of Wonder Trade. It’s not that different from the previous iterations. Though I did have some difficulty with the global link not working for days. I did like 4 trades and now I have a Chikorita. It looks like somebody might be IV breeding since it’s lvl 1. But since I’m not that far into the game, I don’t have a way of knowing what the Chikorita’s IVs are. 

I haven’t whited out so far, but I have gotten really close, like twice. I don’t really know the type match-ups that well. Fairy messed everything up for me XD Basically a Carbink almost wiped out my team due to me not knowing what move to use. I though it was rock-ice but nope, apparently its rock-fairy.

I mean come on… That looks like it would be an ice type. 

The second time I was facing the totem Pokemon for the 3rd? trial. It was for the water Z-gem. I pretty much have a severe type weakness to water since my only Pokemon good against it, is Sparky, my Pichu. My Pichu is very easy to kill. I apparently missed the Soothe Bell, so at some point I need to go back and grab it. Luckily Mob, my Kadabra pulled through and won the fight. One day I’ll trade it to get an Alakazam. 

There was a bit of nod to Pokemon Gold and Silver with the Sudowoodo blocking the path. I also met my proper rival. At least I think he is XD I mean Hau is always there to fight me for fun but he feels more like a friend than a rival, y’know. He’s not really competing with me, its like hes along for the ride and having fun while doing so. 

I’ve discovered the Pokemon Day-Care and they’ve made some changes to it. Basically you can put Pokemon with them but they don’t grow stronger over time, its now just for breeding. I don’t know if there’s going to be a place later on where they’ll take your Pokemon and then train them up while you walk. I’m trying to avoid as much spoilers as possible. But that is an interesting decision. Maybe they removed that completely since people only used the day care for breeding, not raising Pokemon.  

Anyways my team so far is:

  • Kiro, lvl 28 Torracat
  • Sparky, lvl 23 Pichu
  • Wingu, lvl 22 Wingull
  • Mob, lvl 23 Kadabra
  • Loony, lvl 22 Drifloon

I’m carrying around an egg with me. I have no idea what its going to be XD I’m thinking of changing Loony with something. I don’t know what. Maybe a different kind of ghost Pokemon? If I ever find a Shinx, I’m definitely replacing Sparky. I love Luxray. Luxray is my fave Pokemon. I hoping to get a Mudkip, with an attack boosting nature at some point because I have the best moveset for Swampert. 

Anyways back to playing some more Pokemon 🙂

Pokemon Moon #3

Finally left the first island. I spent way too long looking around the cities and petting my Pokemon. It’s really easy to get them to love you and its worth taking the time XD You get a greater chance at getting crits and avoiding attacks. Plus their reactions are super cute.

I’m trying to evolve my Pichu but I can’t remember if it was affection or friendship that it needs. I don’t quite remember all the ways friendship is raised. I just know Soothe Bell is good for it. Something to look up later I guess. 

Gotta say I’m enjoying Pokemon Moon a lot more than Y. I think even more than Omega Ruby too. I just love that it doesn’t take itself too seriously and the characters have really fun personalities. The changes they’ve made to the game are a nice change to the same old formula that’s been used for the past 20 years. 

Pokemon Moon #2

I’m loving Team Skull XD

There’s one bit later on where you can ask them who they are again and their reaction is the greatest. 

My fire cat finally evolved. It has this bell looking thing under its chin that burns your hand if you touch it. I can’t wait for bara cat 😀 I think I’ve overgrinded a bit since I was determined to grab myself an Abra. So I’m like 10 levels higher than most of the trainers I’m finding. 

Pokemon Moon #1

It’s fun when you accidentally forget to save then turn off the console. I basically lost a bit of progress due to playing late into the night and then turning off my 3DS in a fit of sleep deprivation.

I’ve made it back again and more. I spent ages picking up a Pichu, because I accidentally killed it with a single scratch.

I have myself a fire kitten called Kiro, a Wingull called Wingu (because I’ve been naming them that ever since Sapphire and Ruby XD). I also have a Pichu, a Grubbin and a Pikipek. Though once the Grubbin and Pikipek have evolved I’m probably going to put them back in the PC XD

Feeling a bit disappointed. I can’t go to the midnight launch for Pokemon because I’m in just too much pain atm. Couldn’t even attend the IGDAM. Just sucks 😦
