omega ruby

This is a very limited Mew Nintendo DS.

It features a very light silhouette of Mew on the top when closed and a second above the left speaker. Very few of these were made and those that were could only be bought at a Pokemon center in Japan. Like other Pokemon center exclusive handhelds, it’s highly sought after and has a price to match. Usually selling in the neighborhood of $700.

Today I unlocked the tragic backstory of my Sharpedo

I got Omega Ruby right when it came out, and about midway through the game got a Sharpedo via Wonder Trade with a name in Japanese. It was level 40 and filled a gap in my typing so I stuck it right in the party with a couple HMs. As I’m typing this it’s nearly 2 years old, level 100, a permanent party member and a many-time Pokemon League champion

It’s named いらないよ (Iranaiyo), which I just learned means “I don’t want/need this”

I’M ABOUT TO CRY I CAN JUST IMAGINE THE POOR SHARPEDO BEING CAUGHT AND SO EXCITED TO BE WITH A TRAINER BUT THEN NAMED THAT AND TOSSED AWAY AND THEN I CAME ALONG AND DIDN’T KNOW AT ALL UNTIL NOW HE’S GONNA HAVE SUCH A GOOD TIME IN POKEMON AMIE TODAY

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 WON THE BATTLE.
