let's talk pokemon


It’s time to return to the beautiful monstrosity that is POKEMON: DARK CRY

A message to those who think running 5K is impossible.

I’ve seen a lot of people in the community talk about running a 5K like it’s some sort of impossible feat only the fittest of the fit can achieve and I want to talk about that for a moment.

Here’s what I have to say about it: If you can walk. You can do it.

I’m not saying you should, or that you’ll be able to do it right away or that it’s some sort of obligation. No. 

All I’m saying is, you can. 

There’s a phrase I love that goes “It always seems impossible until it’s done” and it can be applied to running your first 5K.

It might seem like an impossible feat right now. Something you can only dream of because “not everyone is cut out to be a runner” and you’re one of those people who would only run to save their own lives, right?

Well, let me tell you something… you’ve probably already walked 5 kilometers.

Are you a mall rat? You’d be surprised how much you can walk just by going from store to store. Download a step counter if you don’t believe me.

Have you visited and explored a new city? Chances are you walked way more than 5 kilometers.

Do you have a dog that enjoys long walks? Your pooch has probably made you walk 5K already.

Do you play Pokémon GO? Guess what? You’ve definitely walked 5K because that’s what it takes to hatch a yellow egg. And maybe you’ve even walked 10K!

Isn’t that amazing?

“It’s different” You say. “I as walking. I was taking my time”

Fair enough, let me ask you something…

What makes you think you can’t do that when running a 5K? 

I promise you this. Unless it’s an obstacle course or one of those zombie runs (which are fun as hell) no one is going to chase you. No one is going to hurry you and make you run faster than you want to run.

In fact, no one’s going to make you run. You can walk if you want.

You can stop, take a break, get up again and keep walking.

The goal for most people isn’t to get there before everyone else. The goal for most people is just to finish the race and, dammit, you can finish it.

I know it because you’ve already done it, and you can do it again.

So what’s so intimidating about running 5K again?

What’s so impossible about it?

Let me tell you about my first 5K.

alright, i didnt expect that last post to suddenly blow up but hey while i still got it on my mind, let’s talk about pokemon contests.

in hoenn, the in-game contests are… bland. as in theres not much variety: the pokemon show up (without costumes??? retcon that puh-lease) and then basically try to steal the spotlight with their moves. i think that, in hoenn, personality doesnt matter too much, its more about winning the audience over with flashy moves. (which, of course, means being as outlandish and extra as physically possible). but i dont think that hoenn would have any reality competition tv series based on it (the important thing to consider). the way that it is, there’s not really a whole lot of content? that’s sort of why i think lisia would be a good trainer, its because hoenn contests are more akin to pure battling than sinnoh contests (which has dancing, dressing up, etc.). speaking of sinnoh…

now this region probably has reality tv in abundance. dressing up based on a theme, dancing to music, “acting”. it is e x c e l l e n t. every week, a new theme. sinnoh’s super contests has a lot of content that it really doesnt seem like something you can just show up to with planning everything beforehand. in hoenn, you can just waltz right in. sinnoh? nuh-uh. you gotta do the choreography. costumes for your pokes. music choice. your own costumes. and while a sort of “improv” style of contest can happen: we’re giving you the theme and the materials on the spot, 3, 2, 1, go, i think that people would be much more entertained to watch something truly original, ideas that come from the contestants themselves, every contestant putting on their own show to their own music based on a simple prompt. so yeah. let’s all go watch sinnoh’s next top idol and project hallway.

🐞  Beautifly & Dustox  🐞

Beautifly are famous for the brightly coloured wings and riding the spring wind to search for pollen. Attracting them is easy as they are drawn to most potted plants however it is not always the best idea as Beautifly also has an aggressive nature especially if disturbed while pollen collecting.

Dustox are instinctively drawn light and are often seen in large swarms in the city. This causes problem as in their search for food, they will strip the roadside trees of their leaves. As both a offensive and defensive strategy it’s wings are coated in a toxic dust which it can send at the foe by flapping its wings violently.


I keep seeing Mimikkyu all over my dash and I want to protect them all so I’m making a headcanon post cause I love them and the posts keep making me sad and -

Headcanon that the little guy evolves when shown enough love and affection and doesn’t feel the need to hide under the disguise anymore. That’s all. I want there to be a brilliant moment when it feels safe and secure and loved. (Like for all I care, nothing happens in the evolution other than taking off the disguise)

Unless they like wearing it cause it makes them feel nice, cause you do you, little guy, I ain’t taking that away from you. (And I will gush at all the fanart I’ve seen of Mimikkyu dressing up as different pokemon because that’s also adorable) But if it’s purely for affection from trainers I want it to get the support it needs. 

…I’m sorry, I’ve grown attached to the little guy.
