always at war

anonymous asked:

The question about the rain setter got me curious, what do you think is the best sun, hail, and sandstorm setters among Pokemon who naturally summon them?

Well the obvious answer for Rain is really Primal Kyogre and for Sun it’s Primal Groudon, but I’m assuming we’re trying to keep things more interesting than that here. 

For Sun, it’s almost objectively Mega Charizard Y, as it always wins the weather war; that is, if the battle begins with 2 weather setters, ordinarily the slower Pokemon would have their weather last, but since Drought happens upon Mega Evolution, which happens before attacks but after switches, you’re 100% guaranteed that, unless a faster Pokemon uses Rain Dance or something, for at least 1 turn you will have the Sun out. Torkoal, however, gets special mention for Trick Room teams where it’s clearly superior. 

In Hail, Alolan Ninetales certainly wins, as it’s the only Snow Warning user who learns Aurora Veil, and is fast and strong enough to deal with Fighting types that Hail teams can struggle with. However, Mega Abomasnow is useful for the same reasons as Mega Charizard Y was, and since regular Abomasnow can also have Snow Warning you get a lot of bulk that way; Mega Abomasnow is also super bulky unlike Alolatales, so it’s a bit more reliable in that regard even with all the weaknesses. 

Sand is probably the most difficult to say for sure; Tyranitar seems the obvious choice and its certainly a contender, but I think between the two Hippowdon is better, as it’s super bulky and has a pretty good defensive typing, along with reliable recovery and phasing, while Tyranitar has the double weakness and no healing. Tyranitar, however, benefits from the Special Defense boost Rock types get in Sandstorm. Gigalith is not without its uses of course, but ultimately the others are better. 

So, in short, we have, as a whole, Pelipper, Mega Charizard Y, Alolan Ninetales, and Hippowdon as the best weather setters!

Hux : a white guy we saw 3 minutes in the movie, who said 3 lines, so 
insignificant I didn’t even remember he was there after seeing the movie 

ok but at what point did Qui-Gon realize he’d said “The Queen doesn’t need to know” to the actual Queen.

at what point in the battle planning did Padme very deadpan say to him, “the council doesn’t need to know?” or something like that

at what point did Qui-Gon realize that under no circumstances should Obi-Wan and Padme be allowed to become friends because they will sass him to death

at what point did the young Queen realize she and Qui-Gon were saltmates

Very much inspired by Finitum by plinys

Lieutenant Hux gets a mission to pick up an asset for the Supreme Leader from the ruins of a massacred temple, and the entire course of his life is changed in one moment by the appearance of a bloodstained boy who calls himself Ben. A series of meetings and chance encounters throughout the years draw the two of them together again and again, as their relationship shifts from almost friends to enemies to something else entirely.

Just a thought, that could probably be the reason why Steve jumps to the conclusion “Pregnant?!” like he’s been expecting it. And boy he looks really upset for Tony..
