    So I'm at the elite four with my highest level being my baby eagle who still needs 4 levels to evolve and everything else 47 or lower.

    Exactly how fucked am I?

    You're actually fine, it's possible to go through with 40-42 as your team levels, although that requires a ton more items

    The Rufflet may not get much use though

    so have we all gotten used to the fact that pokemon threads go on far more pages than they ought to, to the point where it is no longer a Big Deal

    I love capitalizing the first letters of Specific Words to indicate that they are More Important than the others.

    I think I could take the e4 down right now except I have godawful type coverage on my team. Just gonna grind a bit because it's faster then leveling up a whole 'nother dude.

    Naming Pokemon is the best part of the game for sure.

    I'm not particularly good at it though.

    I am awful at nicknames

    Wottson the Oshawott is legitimately the most creative thing I've ever come up with (also possibly the first time I've ever tried a nickname)

    Wait, you can do the elite four in any order?

    That just seems really cool, even though it's honestly a really trivial change kinda.

    use it as a parent

    and then don't settle for one until you get a calm tentacool that receives both 31s

    in other news I am dropping wigglytuff from my team. It's just too much work for too little payoff. I'm gonna use it once, lose catastrophically, and never touch it again.

    I need to figure out that last slot though. The think I'm missing the most is special defense. My options are blissey (bleh), chansey (more bleh), togekiss (everyone else blehs), or Snorlax

    so I guess Snorlax it is!

    I am trying to remember names I am particularly proud of and I can't really think of any.

    Most of them are just nerdy references to things.

    I guess I am fairly proud of Mr.Nibbles the Feraligatr, MrsNibbles the Krookodile, and SATAN the Clefable.

    Ugh, the worst part about transferring a full team over as eggs to do a story run is trying to catch them up

    Have to get 6 level 1s up to around 10-12 or I'm going to be behind the random trainers

    probably not a lot as I've already decided that the calm boost to special defense is worth far more than an offensive boost as that isn't the pokemon's purpose

    So when they won't let you upload the battle video after that means the person used hacked pokemon right?

    togekiss will most certainly be showing up to to take a big white dump on people's day

    but for the league stuff I feel like that's supposed to have somewhat of an air of casual fun, so employing a strategy that pisses everyone off seems counter to the point of the thing

    damn a bunch of these tentacool are showing up with the Capable of Taking Hits characteristic which I assume means they have a 31 defense because that's the only way the Somewhat Vain from their 31 special defense would be overriden

    my nicknames are mostly words tangentially related to the pokemon's name/concept origin, corrupted to sound """cool""" (Onisci the Scolipede - a chunk taken out of the name of the order/family/whatever of centipede bulbapedia speculates it was based on)

    that or things that incorporate the inital letter or multiple other letters from the species name (Lillian the Petilil; Parsons the Purrloin)

    some more """creative""" ones that i am more """proud""" of include

    Mesmer - Munna (obvious reasons)

    Olive Oyl - female Timburr (the resemblance is uncanny)

    HOTSHIT - Darumaka (see its white dex entry)

    Mr. O - Sandile (other people suggested that; Crocodile from One Piece)

    Archelon - Tirtouga (not really original since that's just the unmodified name of the ancient sea turtle carracosta was based off of, but it is a RAD NAME)



    any instance of """triple quotation marks""" is intended to indicate """exaggerated finger quotes"""
