#37. Evolve into the Future
Yo I did something I probably would never do in real life and traded a Mola Mola for a Sea Otter.
Oshawott fights using the scalchop on its stomach. The scalchop on its stomach is made from the same element as claws. It detaches the scalchop for use as a blade. In response to an attack, it retaliates immediately by slashing. The scalchop on its stomach isn't just used for battle--it can be used to break open hard berries as well.
Choro Notes: Oshawott is probably my favorite starter from this generation. Fucker is cute.
Zorak Notes: Cute little otter baby. Otters are very neat mustelids (weasels, otters, badgers, etc). Mustelids are caniforms, which means they're also relatives of dogs, bears, and seals. Here's some baby otter footage.
HulkaMatt Notes: It's cute and I like it ! ! !
A sea otter from Kansas . . . how improbable. Also it knows how to throw hot water in things' faces. Great! There was a letter but it is too covered in mustard stains to read . . .
- - -
Oh no what will my little cell baby d—
Well shoot, very bad dudes, huh.
Well . . . anything that happens here will probably KO Solosis, so:
Go to town!
You should see what she does when music's actually playing!
Oh you grew more cells. Big whoop I do that all the time.
When their brains, now divided in two, are thinking the same thoughts, these Pokémon exhibit their maximum power. However, since their brain is divided, at times they suddenly try to take two different actions at once.
Choro Notes: I wish I had something to say about Duosion but . . . eh. It's stronger than Solosis!
Zorak Notes: Psychic baby fetus with two brains. Biology is weird.
HulkaMatt Notes: Aw, it looks so happy I mean, still gooey as hell and I wouldn't even wanna touch it but at least it's got a smile
Well, for really bad dudes y'all ain't too bad. Or good. Or whatever.
Choro Notes: There is a Lemonade hidden here in the path. Sometimes it respawns. How mysterious.
WHY ARE PEOPLE THROWING THINGS AT ME ON THIS ROUTE?
Oh, I didn't even see all of this grass last night. Better start earning my paych— Oh, no I do that with the fighting.
Oh. You look . . . sharp.
Blades comprise this Pokémon's entire body. Pawniard fight at Bisharp's command. They cling to their prey and inflict damage by sinking their blades into it, ignoring their own injuries. If battling dulls the blades, it sharpens them on stones by the river.
Choro Notes: INDESTRUCTIBLE. I mean, sure he has some weaknesses and stuff but INDESTRUCTIBLE.
Zorak Notes: knives.guy. This guy and his evolution are really sweet looking as hell and probably cut the fuck out of shit all day long.
HulkaMatt Notes: You know, I don't know where you're goin' with this, going out lookin' like that, but you look like you can be pretty rad. I'll give ya a chance.
Cheapsteaks named this
And you look . . . gloomy.
How depressin' are you?
Starlight is the source of their power. At night, they mark star positions by using psychic power to float stones. Gothorita use hypnosis to control people and Pokémon. Tales of Gothorita leading people astray are told in regions they appear. According to many old tales, it creates friends for itself by controlling sleeping children on starry nights.
Choro Notes: Oh, you're like a Kirlia but . . . darker.
Zorak Notes: It's kind of weird that they made an entire Pokémon line based around a fashion fad/style thing. I pray we never see a steampunk Pokémon. GOGGLES EVERYWHERE
HulkaMatt Notes: Why are you goth, you are a pokémon. I just, I don't even wanna catch you.
A mollusk named this
Choro Notes: This place opens up in the end game. Why it's here? I don't know.
Garbodor absorb garbage and make it part of their bodies. Consuming garbage makes new kinds of poison gases and liquids inside their bodies. It clenches opponents with its left arm and finishes them off with foul-smelling poison gas belched from its mouth.
Choro Notes: I really like Garbodor's design. I love that Trubbish got so big that its bag-skin ruptured and it now wears it like a mask. It is like the opposite of Scrafty.
Zorak Notes: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HulkaMatt Notes: Garbage pokémon with a really cool gimmick. I like this guy. NOBODY HATE.
Choro Notes: The last monster on this route is the rare, shaky grass encounter.
which means a lot of Audino by-catch . . .
Still not impressed! Look! I'm doing that now!
When Reuniclus shake hands, a network forms between their brains, increasing their psychic power. These remarkably intelligent Pokémon fight by controlling arms that can grip with rock-crushing power. They can also crush boulders psychically, however.
Choro Notes: Reuniclus is really cool! I think he has an interesting design but . . . to me it feels like another psychic-type to add to the pile.
Zorak Notes: THE ULTIMATE BABY. These dudes are pretty strong! Also they're homunculii which is pretty cool.
HulkaMatt Notes: YAAAAAAAAAAY
Choro Notes: Cinccino has the same rarity as the other monster I am looking for . . .
Oh, well. That's . . . good to know.
Ferrothorn fights by swinging around its three spiky feelers. A hit from these steel spikes can reduce a boulder to rubble. They attach themselves to cave ceilings, firing steel spikes at targets passing beneath them.
Choro Notes: If you do not evolve Ferroseed, you will not see Ferrothorn. They do not appear in the wild and they don't appear in any trainer's lineup. It resists a ton of shit and only has two weaknesses on top of its huge defense stats. Awesome.
Zorak Notes: I really like the idea behind Ferrothorn, both in design and mechanics. He's the epitome of DONT TOUCH THIS THING, mechanically and visually. And that's pretty neat!
HulkaMatt Notes: YEAAAAAAAH!!!! YOU'RE A FUCKING BEAST!!! I LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. A+
Well shoot, I'm running out of duders to evolve. I guess next can be . . .
Gothitelle can predict the future from the placement and movement of the stars. Starry skies thousands of light-years away are visible in the space distorted by their intense psychic power. They can see peoples' life spans. When it learns its Trainer's life span, it cries in sadness.
Choro Notes: Gothitelle is. I guess it's sort of like Gardevoir but . . . darker. I like it's dreary design!
Zorak Notes: THE TERRIBLE SECRET OF SPACE IS WHEN YOU SHALL DIE.
HulkaMatt Notes: Seriously, I don't understand. What is your deal? Maybe if you took up wearing some Zubaz Pants I'd like you more. vv
Choro Notes: So funny thing! Gothitelle is the rare encounter on this route! Now I don't have to keep looking!
Please be a guy with a Zapdos, please be a guy with a Zapdos.
Music: Opelucid City - Black Version
Music: Opelucid City - White Version
Choro Notes: Opelucid City changes drastically between the white and black versions! While it's futuristicy as hell in Black version, it's an old-fashioned town in White!
"Where the hell've you been? It's been like a week."
Tch, this place looks all future and clean. Like I am expecting robots to be boopin' around somewhere. They gotta be smarter, right?
and intends to create a new world."
Oh, right. I bet seein' Zekrom helps with that, huh?
"Iris, shut up."
"Aren't we acknowledging their greatness with all the statues and legends and shrines? Like, I saw a thing in National Geographic about a shrine to Bellsprout."
Man I hate that guy.
"Well, you have."
"I have slideshows and things to show off and I'll be damned if anyone with eyelids can get through them!"
Oh! It's the squirrel kid from Castelia! The dumb one!
it would simply leave . . .
"The kinda dumb one!"
" . . . did you want to quantify that any? I mean Rayquaza, Dialga, Latias. We got a lot of options here, frankly."
Yeah, that one. The second one.
I saw it, it dragged itself along a tower floor like some sort of strange slug-man!
Yeah, that's roughly about it!
"And now he wants to make them fight against prison inmates?! D:>"
"That is exactly right. That is the thing that they are doing. They awakened a legendary dragon so they could have it play Fight Club with convicts. Good job."
Also, sometimes they just get hungry!
Yeah, I'm just doing this for no reason!
Soooo hey, how ya doin?
"He's not some kind of horrific ogre, he's just a man. He will not steal your bellybutton or whatever you think he's going to do."
Sure, ok. Nice beard, btw.
Can you take me to the place he said to?
. . . great.
Just keep walking.
Screw it I'll find it myself.
Future doors, aw man.
I suppose, since you said so.
from weak trainers."
Hrmm . . .
Shoot, kid. The younger you are the less people look at you funny when you put someone in a leglock in the middle of town. Wish I could go back to them days, man.
Hmmm . . .
Maybe I should go find Mr. Drayden.
