I’m at the ice mountain in Pokemon Moon and it is the best Pokemon game ever IMO. It’s so so so so so good and smart and fun and I love Team Skull and I love the story and I love the music and the graphics and the mechanics and my good bird friend named Costner.
So on New Year’s Eve my brother challenged me to a triple rotation battle in ORAS. Now I had only just gotten the game on Christmas so I wasn’t anywhere close to beating the game and my pokemon were seriously under leveled. However since the pokemon are just automatically bumped to lvl 50 for the battle I figured, eh why not?
HOWEVER my brother decides to pull a dick move and has his entire party be NOTHING BUT FULLY TRAINED LEGENDARY POKEMON. TWO OF WHICH WERE PRIMAL GROUDON AND MEGA RAYQUAZA.
His legendary team completely destroyed my first 5 pokemon.
I was down to my very last pokemon, a Lombre I had named Skip.
I decided I was gonna lose anyway, but I wasn’t gonna go down without a fight.
So I used Teeter Dance, which is a move that confuses the opponent’s pokemon. Doesn’t do any damage tho.
LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE POKEMON HE HAD KILLED ITSELF. NOT A ONE ACTUALLY ATTACKED SKIP.
I like that whenever you battle a Team Skull Grunt, the battle takes place right by the stairs, like…
”This is where we throw down.”
I can only imagine Grunts taking bets in the background and just cheering on for whoever it was they bet on. And the fact that this doesn’t bring any attention from Guzma makes me feel that this might be a common occurrence, like…it’s happened more than once.
And it sure as hell isn’t going to stop soon.
By the way, I see that fallen chandelier in the background and I bet you a Max Revive that some random Grunt did that while singing Sia’s Chandelier. Assuming Guzma wasn’t the one to do that (if he wasn’t, he’d probably be annoyed because HE wanted to do that).
Aaaaaayyyy, I found Team Skull’s makeup supply AND WHY CAN’T I TAKE SOME?!?!
That awkward moment when you walk in on two Skull Grunts arguing over one wearing the other’s identical Team Skull tank. This probably happens a lot more often than I would think it already does (laundry day must be quite the riot).
WELL THAT ESCALATED.
lmao this is probably the one time a dropped memo with passwords in a base makes so much sense because this is TEAM SKULL.
I think a lot about the fact that Guzma raised a Wimpod. Like so much.
(and for today’s lesson, we learn the TRUE meaning of READING THE FINE PRINT)
I like that Guzma’s favorite drink is Tapu Cocoa. That’s kind of cute. He probably shares that with his Wimpod/Golisopod.
