Elanor liveblogs Pokemon Sun for a bit

Ooh, there are some Team Skullions in the corner. Team Skulliwags. They’re trying to do squats and justify their poor life choices. Bless.

Ooh, the Battle Royal dome is glitzy! I like their colourful logo -

“Glad you could make it!” screams a weird half naked man from the stairs and who the FUCK is that and why are they wearing a gimp mask, have we met?

“I’m here today, yeah, to spread the word, oh yeah, about Battle Royal!” 

…your speech patterns are a bit… Skulliwag.

“They call me… The Masked Royal!” He yells. “Woo!”

Do they? Does anyone? Feels like you chose that yourself OH MY GOD IS THAT KUKUI



“The Masked Royal!” he corrects irritably. Shit yeah, sorry mate. This is undercover right now isn’t it. OH MY CHRIST THOUGH WHAT ARE YOU WEARING


“I’m here to teach you, oh yeah, about the battle format passed down in Alola for generations…”

How about you teach me about that outfit?

“?But Royal, what’s the Battle Royal?’, you might ask?” he yells over me. “Four trainers! Four trainers, yeah, each pick three Pokemon, yeah, for one big battle, oh yeah!”

Okay but

“WHEN ONE TRAINERS TEAM can’t battle anymore, yeah, the Battle Royal ends! Whichever Trainer has taken out the most Pokemon, yeah, and has the most Pokemon left will emerge the winner. woo!”


Why are you naked?

“Just give it a shot!” he pleads. “Pick your Pokemon and let’s do this!”

“Dude!” Hau squeals up in the balcony. “?It’s the Masked Royal! I wanna battle!”

…how much did he pay you to say that, Hau.

Grimbeard the Ghastly’s Second Heir

“How to Be a Pirate” initially seems like such a simple, stand-alone adventure during which Hiccup meets Alvin the Treacherous, discovers some treasure by Grimbeard the Ghastly, and procures his sword, Endeavor. However, having recently reread book two in anticipation for book twelve, I realized that this little story is a symbolic microcosm of the entire series. Within this story, we see extensive foreshadowing for events that occur in books nine through eleven… particularly pertaining to Snotlout and his short tenure as Hooligan chief. Interactions between characters in book two directly parallel events in book nine, and we come to see that, throughout this entire series, Grimbeard the Ghastly has not one, but two heirs carrying on his legacy. Snotlout proves to be someone who does not completely – but still partially – stumble through Grimbeard’s fate.

I really encourage HTTYD book lovers to read this, because what “How to Be a Pirate” does is show how completely and utterly brilliant Cressida Cowell is.
