#39. Storm's A-Brewin'
Music: Prof. Juniper
Uhhhhh, that depends what you are asking, really!
. . . . that's great.
Well how do those two things make sense together!
I was always strong!
Well, I learned more words I guess! Like standardization and hooligan and jams!
at the Badge Check Gates!"
at the Pokémon League!"
in Nuvema Town."
Man, that was almost a year ago.
Shoot, why would I regret this. I get hugs and a cactus dance every 10 minutes now. My life is golden!
Oh man, it's purple.
"Be true to yourself."
Man, I'm gonna ruin Team Plasma so hard, now.
Well. I was going somewhere really important BUT, I guess!
Ehhhhh . . .
ehhhhhhhh . . .
ehhhhhhhhhhhh . . .
ehhhhhhhhhhhh . . .
Oh wow, they weren't kidding!
Man why aren't you in your hole!
Scalchop techniques differ from one Dewott to another. It never neglects maintaining its scalchops. Strict training is how it learns its flowing double-scalchop technique.
Choro Notes: Dewott is probably one of my favorite middle stage starters. It's just so cool and fun to draw. I didn't even let mine evolve!
Zorak Notes: Dewott is a cool otter dual wieldin' shells. He will cut your shit up.
HulkaMatt Notes: What can I say about Dewott that hasn't already been said? He is absolutely amazing in every way possible.
Ok, it's really hard to see out here! It's belting down!
Slick wood, slick wood! Electric zebras underneath!
Lady, you are gonna get blown away!
That Pokémon might be too much for you."
Raining pretty hard!
Shoot. I've been doin things in colder weather than this! Sometimes even in mud!
Oh man, Gramma soup. I am IN.
Hey keep going on, Xanadu will listen for me.
Oh man, I like these carrots.
Wait, it's almost evening!
HEY! HEY TORNADUS!
You a dick!
Choro Notes: Tornadus & Thundurus
Tornadus and Thundurus are counterparts: Tornadus is found in the Black version while Thundurus is found in White. They're the roaming legendaries in this game, like Entei or Mesprit, etc. In this case it's not random wandering, they make a circuit around Unova from south to north each day which makes finding them easier: just run north to south. Because it's easier, you can't track them with the Pokédex this time.
Raining in the desert, huh.
Easy as pie!
Well. He looks kind of buff. A little too buff. And you can't really leg wrestle him cause. Hmm.
Tornadus expels massive energy from its tail, causing severe storms. Its power is great enough to blow houses away. The lower half of its body is wrapped in a cloud of energy. It zooms through the sky at 200 mph.
Choro Notes: Finally, a pure flying-type! Tornadus is kind of neat! I suppose! He can do something . . . strange. But that's for another time. DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE THING!!!
Zorak Notes: Tornadus is based on Fujin, the kami (God in Shintoism) of the wind. Fujin and his siblings are simultaneously kami and oni, because the only kami badass enough to cause storm patterns and what not clearly also need to be oni. Fujin carries bags of wind around and throws them at people. Like most kami, he and his siblings had a rather weird birth: when the mother deity of the island of Japan (yes, the whole island) Izanami died, Izanagi went down into the Underworld to find her and bring her back. Long story short, she was already way too dead, so Izanagi decided to stay with her until he shone a light upon her and saw her decayed body, full of maggots and foul creatures running over her ravaged body. Also: Fujin and his brothers were there. Probably in her rib cage or something, hanging out.
HulkaMatt Notes: IT'S THE MOTHA FUCKIN GREEN GOBLIN AND HE STOLE A LAKITU CLOUD!!! GET OUT OF HERE GOBLIN!
It was me!
somewhere on Route 14."
. . . It's not that Reckueeza thing is it?
- - -
Choro Notes: Unova Route 10
. . . are you wearing a skull?
Vullaby's wings are too tiny to allow it to fly. They guard their posteriors with bones that were gathered by Mandibuzz. As the time approaches for it to evolve, it discards the bones it was wearing. They pursue weak Pokémon.
Choro Notes: Vullaby evolves into one of my favorite monsters ever. Oh man I can't wait.
Zorak Notes: Interestingly, Vullaby, it's evolved form, and Golurk were designed by different people than usual (Game Freak): a British man named James Turner. They were added rather late in development. So was Basculin, actually.
HulkaMatt Notes: Damn son . . . just, damn . . . . . . . . . . . damn
Hey, yeah because I don't have experience beating these!
Choro Notes: Sucker Punch is a physical dark-type move that strikes first if the target attempts to attack the user. It's a good surprise against quick monsters, especially psychic- or ghost-types.
How shocking for you!
Oh man it's both of you guys. How's it going?
You know it.
I think it will be all right."
Whatever, I've beaten him lo- oh right Zekrom.
Cheren what are you trying to do? Why would you have your bird taunt?
Why would you taunt and then use a move that takes two turns to use?
Really what did you expect?
I mean c'mon s'all she does. She's a big carnivorating centipede!
That was a good one!
Cheren do you think it's weird that your team gets countered by two of mine?
Well now you can be Lublub's friend I guess!
Part of the armor on Samurott's anterior legs conceals a giant sword. In the time it takes a foe to blink, it can draw and sheathe this seamitar and fell opponents in one swing. Its cry alone is enough to intimidate most enemies. A simple glare from one of them quiets everybody.
Choro Notes: Probably my favorite water-type starter. Though . . . I've never used one (See: Dewott)
Zorak Notes: He cool Otter/Sealman who stab thing with head.
HulkaMatt Notes: JESUS CHRIST WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU??? YOU WERE A KUNG FU OTTER AND NOW YOU'RE THE FUCKING KING OF THE SEA! The stache is pretty in character, though. :o
Music: Unwavering Emotions
Thanks for once! I gotta go back to town anyway to switch out this samurai but thanks!
Well, yeah. You got my back, I got yours!
Dang Bianca. These things are expensive . . .
She's right, you know.
are different for each of us, right?"
I'm still not good at math! But I'm still the best at fightin'!
Yeah, I guess so, huh?
we're best at."
people and Pokémon."
That's what I've come to think lately . . .
I will do everything I can to help you.
Yeah! Team C plan! You got Team B plan's back!
Just . . . don't be reckless, OK?"
Ah he'll be fine.
Bianca. There are wild baby giant birds on this route.
