So I got Black a few days ago. I saved up for forever to get it, and ended up getting it at half-price because I sacrificed most of what few games I have to Gamestop and they apparently gave 25% more than they usually would for them SINCE IT WAS RELEASE DAY AND ALL AND SO YEAH *deep breath*

Ahhhhh, I'm so deliriously happy. Of course, this occured on Sunday and so I haven't made much progress in the game since it's Finals next week and the teachers are throwing last minute tests and worksheets and papers at us left and right, but.


I love it. It has some things I don't really like, or things I'm "meh" on, but overall I really, really like it. N is so very crazy, he's the first antagonist I actually like. YOU GO BE BEST FRIENDS WITH ZEKROM, N. YOU DO IT. I've been neglecting my Heart Gold game at a crucial moment just so I can see more of your crazy, you can't let me down, guy.


Okay so.

Dewott (Dover) Water
Lvl. 28, Lonely, Likes to fight
Revenge/Razor Shell/Water Gun/Water Pulse
Item: Mystic Water
My starter, and the first water-type starter I actually like enough to use :3 I'm trying to get his Defense stat up right now because it's kind of abysmal, but he holds his own just fine.

Audino (First Aid) Normal
Lvl. 27, Quirky, Capable of taking hits
Secret Power/Double Slap/Helping Hand/Refresh
Item: None
Yes, I named my Audino after First Aid the Protectobot. Audinos are naturally born healers, and that's my excuse (and just look at the color scheme). Turns out he doesn't really match his namesake though, being that he's a freaking TANK and all. First Aid lays waste to everything in his path. No mercy. No survivors. The only thing that fits him to First Aid the Autobot aside from colors is that his natural ability lets him heal his teammates in double battles. Right before he goes and mows down the opposition. I love him. He's flawless.

Swoobat (Ardan) Psychic/Flying
Lvl. 27, Brave, Likes to relax
Confusion/Odor Sleuth/Heart Stamp/Air Cutter
Item: None
I originally wasn't going to get a Woobat, but then it turned out they were Boss and so I did. Then it evolved into this from happiness. I love Ardan. He isn't doing as well as I'd like him to be at this point, but that's mostly my fault since I'm not used to Psychic types.

Pansear (Kyros) Fire
Lvl. 27, Serious, Often scatters things
Bite/Cut/Yawn/Flame Burst
Item: None
I've had her for most of the game and I'm still not sure if I'm going to keep her on the team or not. On one hand, I want a fire type and there aren't many fire types I'm fond of in this new generation. On the other...Well, there's always my Victini. Or a Lampent.

Archen (Lomnos) Rock/Flying
Lvl. 27, Timid, Likes to relax
Pluck/Ancient Power/Agility/Quick Guard
Item: None
My dinosaur baby! Lomnos is awesome. I need to work on her Defense too, like pretty much everyone else on my team, but she's doing just fine.

Emolga (Nox) Electric/Flying
Lvl. 20, Relaxed, Loves to eat
Charge/Spark/Pursuit/Double Team
Item: Cheri berry
I just got Nox, so I'm not sure if I'm going to keep her or box her yet. She's a mix of my most favorite type and one of my least favorite types. Not sure how that's going to work out. I spent forever looking for her though, so I'm just going to train her up to level with the rest and see how it goes.

I have not played Pokemon since the days of Gold and Silver (I had Silver, my brother had Gold). That dinosaur one is kinda cool :)

Gold and Silver are my absolute favorites. Flawless taste.

I love Archen <3 But she was also a pain to get; so if I didn't like her that would be kind of sad.

I had this absolutely epic team where everyone was level 60-70, but it was getting hard to level them up at that point D:

So I stopped playing...

^_^ I saw the games at Target and actually was like I wonder which one Ricky will get. :)

And I like NOX..its cute!

XDDD Target gave out artbooks with their sales, apparently. No one knew this, though.

I <3 Nox~

Really I didn't see them there! Maybe only certain targets had them.

First Aid the merciless tank! I like it :D And I'd say "Quirky, capable of taking hits" describes him very well.

I was very happy to see that Nature! I considered releasing him and looking for one with the Gentle nature, but Quirky just worked better.

...Someday I want to make a team based on one of the gestalts. It would be beautiful.
