Ash just can’t win

Pokemon spoilers down below.

Pokemon episodes, Kalos League Victory! Ash’s Ultimate Match!! and The Finals! Ash VS Alain!! feature the battle between Ash and Alain. Too be honest I’m very inconstant when it comes to watching the Pokemon episodes. However, when it comes to the Pokemon battles in the anime I’ll try to watch. Luckily, fans on YouTube will usually edit the battles together so I don’t have to watch a full episode. 

I don’t know why but I got the feeling that this will be the first time Ash would actually win one of these Pokemon Leagues. I was disappointed that he lost yet again in a dramatic final battle between Mega Charizard and Ash-Greninja. So far Ash has never won but he’s getting closer. I can only assume he will win the next one, but I probably hoping for too much.

Ash’s results so far:

  • Indigo League Loses to Ritchie: Top 16
  • Johto League Loses to Harrison: Top 8
  • Hoenn League Loses to Tyson: Top 8
  • Sinnoh League Loses to Tobias: Top 4
  • Unova League Loses to Cameron: Top 8
  • Kalos League Loses to Alain: Runner-Up

Bleach

Final Chapter (Death & Strawberry)

The final chapter officially ends a 15 year series that I have mostly enjoyed and I’m sad to see it end. With the ending of Bleach, it now joins Naruto as the second of the “Big Three.” This leaves One Piece as the final member left. Bleach has sold more than 84 million copies and is know for its art style. I initially had a hard time getting into the series. The first few chapters were slow. However, the art style drew me in and I began to like the series.

20 (3)

There wasn’t much to this chapter. Orihime and Ichigo get married and have child Kazui Kurosaki and so do Renji and Rukia. Their daughter, Ichika Abarai arrives and introduces herself to Kazui. He surprises her, when he shows her that he is also a shinigami. I wonder what abilities, Kazui has considering his mother unique abilities. Overall, I greatly enjoyed the series and while the ending disappointed me I’m glad to have read the series. Thank you, Kubo.

Chapter 103

The Exam

Hanta expresses his confusion regarding Inasa reasoning behind not enrolling in U.A. A female teacher arrives and makes jokes with “Erasing Hero.” Her name is “Smile Hero,” and her Quirk was is Roaring Laughter. Her Quirk forces her opponents to laugh against their will, messing with them from a cognitive and motor skills. Ms. Joke asks Shouta “if he told his class about something that happens every year at the Provisional Hero License Exam; Shouta replies he hasn’t.”

15 (6)

Meanwhile, “Mera of the Hero Public Safety Commission,” introduces himself and explains what the Provisional Hero License Exam entails. He tells the students that “only 100 of them will participate in the Provisional Hero License Exam.” He tells them “that they will first compete in a preliminary round to determine the 100 then compete in the Provisional Hero License Exam.” The preliminary round is designed to test the speed of the students.”

16 (7)

In the preliminary round, every student “will take three targets and paste them somewhere on their bodies where others can see, except their feet and armpits.” Each student is given six balls and is expected to use them to hit targets. These targets will light up when it is hit, once three are lit, the student is considered as lost and disqualified. Only the third target will matter, meaning that whom ever lights up the final of three targets gets the credit. Each student will need to get two people each to pass. So far the start to the exam has been interesting and I’m excited.

One Piece

Chapter 836

The Vivre Card Lola Gave

Nami remembers Lola and is surprised who her father is. The giant tells Charlotte Cracker to let him go and that he wants to see his daughters, Lola and Chiffon. Nami realizes that while at Thriller Bark, she was given a vivre card for Big Mom, from Lola. Randolph interrupts riding on a crane.

Cracker states that Big Mom sent him to take care of Luffy. Brulee arrives on a enormous tree named King Baum. Baum states that “no one they have targeted has emerged from the Seducing Woods alive.” Brulee shows Luffy that Chopper and Carrot are trapped in her mirror. She drops the mirror, shattering it with Chopper and Carrot appearing unharmed.

041 (2)

Cracker begins to attack the giant, he responds by saying “he could be his father, but Cracker says that he, like Big Mom, considered her 43 husbands as outsiders to the family.” Cracker attempts to decapitate him with a sword. Luffy, blocks the sword and forces him to let go of the giant. The giant reveals that his name is Pound and he and Nami flee. Nami pulls out the vivre card. it begins to glow, scaring the homies. The homies can’t “oppose Nami due to feeling Big Mom’s powerful soul around her.” Luffy is knocked into a tree homie by Cracker. Cracker uses his devil fruit ability to increase his number of limbs. Nami tells Luffy that they don’t have the time to “go all out, but Luffy replies that he knows no other way of fighting.

07 (7)

Another good chapter. We learned that Cracker was sent to defeat Luffy by Big Mom. Cracker’s bounty is revealed to be 860,000,000 Beli and his Devil Fruit ability allows him to multiply his limbs. I think the battle between, Luffy and Cracker should be good. I think the biggest concern is the broken mirror. I can only assume that Brulee can create more and somehow they will escape.

Boruto Cheats! Enemy Approaches – Boruto 4

I can’t wait till Boruto gets past the movie. They missed an opportunity to show the skills of this generation more during the chuunin exam. Anyway, enjoy the review from dailyanimeart.

Daily Anime Art

Boruto 4 see’s the continuation of the Chunin exam, while enemies slowly approach their game in order to fight against Naruto to take Kurama’s chakra. Boruto isn’t able to fight using his own powers, thus relies on the power of the hand band as he uses it to defeat the enemies he faces, but Naruto spots it.

Bleach

Chapter 685

A Perfect End

Bleach will official end in the next chapter (686) and apparently it’s will be accompanied by an announcement. Hopefully, the announcement will be good, because the end of this series was a MAJOR disappointment. The fight between Yhwach and Ichigo was just poorly executed. The use of an convenient arrow to “stop” the unstoppable Yhwach was clearly a way to defeat a character that Kubo made too powerful to begin with.

Ichigo’s “new” Bankai was completely useless, Aizen didn’t get to even use his. It is painfully obvious to me that Kubo was just phoning in his finally chapters. It felt rushed and there was a lot of loose ends that should have been answered. Overall, this chapter and the ending arc was disappointing. Although, I’m glad that Rukia became captain, guess that’s something.

Hovering Thoughts

Izuku explains his Full Cowl technique to Mei. He said that the technique was conceived “from Gran Torino and Kacchan.” He says it uses “fine nimble movements,” that allows for better movement. His costume will add spikes to support his arms and iron armor soles. Izuku elaborates further and explains that it’s “more of a stop gap,” than a special move. All Might disagrees and suggests that it’s more effective than a stop gap.”

02 (11)

Eijirou, Denki’s, Shouto, Kyouka, and Kouda upgrade their hero costumes as well. Class B arrives and one of the students Neito Monoma suggests that no one from Class A will pass the “provisional license exam.” Blood King states that “the Provisional Hero Provisional Exam is conducted every year in June and September at three different locations across the country.”

04 (8)

Neito is disappointed that “he won’t be able to bring down Class 1-A himself,” causing Eijirou and Denki to wonder if something is wrong with him. The female students gather together and discuss their special moves. Tsuyu and Momo have ‘special moves in mind and need a bit more training to pull it off.” We fast forward to the day of the exams. Class A is introduced to some more students as they prepare to enter.

06 (7)

I think Izuku’s Full Cowl has a lot of potential. I don’t know if he’ll even have any use for his arms. All Might having to accept that he is now in need of protection was humbling. I interested in seeing what this exam is like and what abilities the other students have developed. Overall, another good chapter.

One Piece

Chapter 835

The Nation of Souls

We start in Chocolate Town were the citizens of Totto Land are asked a question, Leave or Life? When they choose life they, a strange black creature removes a round piece from their bodies. In the Seducing Woods, Luffy is confused by all the Nami, Choppers, Carrots, Sanji, and Purins clones. The real Nami appears and tells Luffy about their encounter with Charlotte Brulee.

007 (1)

Brulee uses the devil fruit ability, Mira Mira no Mi. The Devil fruit gives Brulee, that “gives her the ability to reflect back anything she wants.” Carrot attacks and is “reflected,” then she attacks again and is absorbed. Brulee tells her “not to worry, as she doesn’t plan on killing them, and asks if they realize the situation they are in.” She tells them that “Big Mom is well aware of their presence in her territory.”

009 (2)

In fact, “Big Mom ordered them to follow them.” They were ordered to keep them away from meeting with Sanji, and to “make them aware of what happens when they defy Big Mom.” Chopper tells Nami to find Luffy, he uses his abilities much to Brulee pleasure. Luffy calls it “absolutely crazy and asks where Chopper and Carrot are.” Nami says “it all happened right where they were standing, but there is no trace of them now.” She accuses the giant of being a henchmen for Big Mom.

011 (3)

The giant offers to explain why they don’t attack. The giant explains “that every six months, each citizen is required to give a month’s worth of their lifespan, in the form of their soul, to the country in exchange for protection.” He explains “that Big Mom ate the Soru Soru no Mi, giving her the ability to control souls.” She takes the pieces of soul are then spread throughout the islands. They then inhabit nearby objects, giving them some sentience. These objects are called “homies”.

019 (1)

The giant explains that he was the former husband of Big Mom. After giving her two daughters, she dumped him. Charlotte Cracker, the 10th son in the family, the giant begs to see his daughter again and “congratulate her on her marriage.” He mentions that “Lola ran away,” surprising Nami. This chapter was great. The cruelty of Big Mom becomes more and more apparent. Her abilities are very interesting. I think the “homies” are actually creepy. I effect the friendship between, Nami and Lola will have during this arc. Things don’t look good for the Strawhat’s or the giant.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Update

A new batch of Pokemon have been revealed. I have been underwhelmed so far regarding their design. Unfortunately, my disappointment continues. The new video shows some new aspects introduced into the series, such as Aloha forms and Z-moves.

Z- Moves

Pokemon Sun & Moon introduces a whole new mechanic to the series that uses a ring on the trainer’s wrist like Mega evolution. These powerful moves can only be done once per battle. According to the video each type will have one of these Z-moves.

Gigavolt Havoc (Electric)

Bloom Doom (Grass)

6 (10)

Inferno Overdrive (Fire)

8 (9)

Hydro Vortex (Water)

Aloha Forms

Pokemon now react to “micro-climates,” changing their appearance, type and move sets. This is a new mechanic that can take the older generation of Pokemon and make them newer. That fact that they basically become different Pokemon, except for their names. Overall, I like this new addition.

Alolan Exeggutor

Exeggutor adds the dragon typing, his design is ridiculous. There something strange about his long neck with no arms. Exeggutor wasn’t that cool looking to begin with, this doesn’t help.

alolanexeggutor

Alolan Sandshrew & Alolan Sandslash

Sandshrew and Sandslash add the ability snow cloak. Unlike, Exeggutor they’re typing has completely change from ground type to ice/steel. They will be brutalized by fire types and their design isn’t bad.

alolansandshrew   alolansandslash

Alolan Vulpix & Alolan Ninetales

Like Sandshrew and Sandslash, Vulpix and Ninetales get a change of appearance, typing, abilities and move sets. Ninetales adds a fairy typing and a more majestic design. I’ve always like Ninetales, it’s design is an upgrade.

alolanvulpix  alolanninetales

New Pokemon

Gumshoos

Looks really mean and intimating. Standing upright, darkening in color and gaining more hair. These Pokemon tend to be used for HM’s and discarded after the first gym or so. I don’t think that will change.

gumshoos

Mudbray

Is the first form of Mudsdale. Seems like an appropriate design considering it’s more dramatic evolution. Also the video does show that Mudsdale can be rode during the game.

mudbray

Minior

Is a strange looking Pokemon. It’s mostly a small meteor. It’s typing and ability is the most interesting aspect. A rock/flying type is rather unique (as far as I could remember). It’s ability “Shields Down,” “Protects from status conditions and has high Defense until it hits 50% where it causes the Pokémon to change form.” Is impressive.

minior2 minior

Fomantis & Lurantis

Fomantis evolves into Lurantis. Their both grass types and resemble praying mantis. Lurantis looks OK, but nothing special. Most two evolution Pokemon, I find aren’t worth using. However, Lurantis learns an interesting new move Solar Blade. Solar Blade, “It absorbs energy from the sun on the first move and then unleashes a powerful attack on the second turn.” It’s basically a physical Solarbeam.

formantis   lurantis

Oricorio

The most interesting Pokemon that was revealed. I like the designed, based on “dancing” styles. Corresponding with the “dancing style,” with a different typing. Fire/Flying-type, Electric/Flying-type, Ghost/Flying-type, and Psychic/Flying-type. I’m hoping this Pokemon has an evolution. Oricorio also has a new move, called Revelation Dance. Revelation Dance “Changes type depending on the form of Oricorio.”

Bleach

Chapter 683

The Dark side of two worlds ends

Yhwach destroys part of Sokyoku Hill, he questions why Ichigo didn’t have Orihime heal him. Renji attacks him and activates his Bankai, Sou Zabimaru. Yhwach quickly severs his arm and destroys his Bankai. Aizen appears, attacking with Kyoka Suigetsu intervening. Yhwach teases him for fighting for the “losers.” Aizen uses Hado #99, Goryutenmetsu. A large dragon destroys the ground surrounding them, he them rushes forward. 

07 (4)

Yhwach points out that Aizen sword is cracked, then sends him flying backward with an energy blast. Ichigo appears behind him and Yhwach blows his arm off and single handily stops his Zanpakuto. He notes that even Aizen was ineffective. He shatters Tensa Zangetsu and blows a hole into Ichigo’s chest. However, it appear that this was an illusion and Aizen made it appear that he was Ichigo. 

14 (5)

Aizen is interested in this development, considering the fact that Yhwach was so certain that he wasn’t susceptible to the effects of Suigetsu. Ichigo impales Yhwach from behind and uses a powerful, Getsuga Tensho. This chapter was all about Aizen, fans have been anticipating an Aizen, Yhwach clash. Unlike most of the Shinigami, I believed that Aizen would be a challenge for Yhwach. This fight is already more interesting than Ichigo initial fight with Yhwach.

Special Moves

Class 1-A are excited about getting to create their own special moves. Cementoss explains that the Gamma Gym was created by him and he can use his Quirk to alter the gym to fit the needs of the students. Shouta explains the need for special moves. He explains that the “Hero License Exam,” is designed to test the “aptitudes” in “intel gathering, judgement, mobility, leadership and communication.” However, fighting ability is the most important. 

08 (4)

Midnight gives an example of a special move, like Kamui Woods, Lacquered Chains Prison. Shouta decides that during the summer break the students will spent developing there Quirks and special moves. He suggests that they update their costumes to accommodate their new abilities. Cementoss prepares the gym and Ectoplasm clones himself to spar against the students. Izuku is confused, he’s unsure what his special ability should be. 

101 (1)

He decides that he will focus on his costume, instead of his special move. He thinks that he could upgrade his costume to protect his arms. Tenya and Ochako head to the development studio. Ochako wants to improve her ability to help her with her floating ability so that she could be more effective in hand to hand combat. Meanwhile, decided that she wants to minimize the effect of his, Recipro Burst. An explosion from the development studio sends Izuku flying. Mei Hatsume is responsible. She lands on top of him, surprising Izuku.

111

I’ll be interested to see what special moves the students come up with. It appears that Izuku will always have difficulty with his Quirk. I still believe that Katsuki will become a bad guy or anti-hero eventually. I also happy to see new costumes because the old ones weren’t that good.

One Piece

Chapter 833

Vinsmoke Judge

In the Germa Kingdom, several Germa 66 agents are excited to see Sanji and Jajji fight. Yonji tells an engineer that he “told Sanji off and he attacked him leaving a dent in his head.”The engineer uses his “press machine,” to fix Yonji’s face. The Germa 66 agents are surprised by Sanji’s strength. Sanji kicks at Jajji, who blocks the attack. Jajji uses his lightning spear to attack Sanji. He states that the only reason he return was to protect his crew.

08 (5)

Jajji tells him that reneging on their pact with Big Mom, will cause her to seek vengeance. Sanji recalls his troubled childhood. He remembers the abuse he received at the hands of his brothers and his father indifference to it. In the present Jajji attacks Sanji with his spear. Sanji blocks it with his, Busoshoku Haki. This surprises Jajji and the Germa 66. Jajji leaps up and Sanji counters with Diable Jambe. 

13 (6)

Jajji blocks and grabs Sanji. He slams him to the ground and kicks Sanji with his electrified foot. He uses his shoe blaster against Sanji. Sanji uses Diable Jambe again, as Jajji commands his men to create a wall to block it. Sanji hesitates and Jajji takes advantage of the situation, piercing his agents body sending Sanji flying backward. Reiju aids Sanji, healing his wounds. Jajji tells him that the Germa 66 would give up their lives for him. 

16 (6)

Jajji explains that the alliance with Big Mom, is a guarantee of  their conquest of the North Blue. He reveals that he doesn’t want to lose his most “precious sons,” and he rather sacrifice Sanji. While distracted, Sanji is trapped by Reiju. She places a “World Noble,” collar on his wrists to prevent him from escaping. This chapter of One Piece was well done. I was shocked to see that Sanji has learned Haki. His relationship with his family seemed obviously due to childhood abuse. I wonder if Sanji will sacrifice his hands for his freedom. I don’t think Luffy will allow it.

More Pokemon goodness

In the afterglow of Pokemon Go some may have forgotten that Nintendo will be releasing Pokemon Sun and Moon in November, 2016. Nintendo have released another video revealing some more Pokemon.

rockruff

Rockruff

Type: Rock
Classification: Puppy Pokemon
Height: 1′08″
Weight: 20.3 lbs
Ability: Keen Eye or Vital Spirit

Known Moves
Bite

Details:

Rockruff has an excellent sense of smell, and once it has smelled an odor, it doesn’t forget it! There are tales of these Pokemon getting separated from their Trainers, then using the faintest traces of their scent to track them for days until they are reunited!

Rockruff is a sociable Pokemon, but as it grows, its disposition gets wilder. If it begins to howl when the sun goes down, that is proof that it’s close to evolving. It’s said that it leaves its Trainer’s side to evolve and returns again when fully evolved.

Rockruff stands bravely in battle, even when it’s taking damage. Although an opponent may be stronger than Rockruff, the Puppy Pokemon is so persistent, it keeps going until it outlasts its foe and gets the win! Bite is a good move for Rockruff. It deals damage by biting an opponent with its sharp teeth. This may make the target flinch.

Opinion:

Rockruff is a generic designed Pokemon. It basically looks like a normal dog with some alterations. It will be interesting to see its evolution. What is interesting is it’s typing. Hopefully, stat wise Rockruff will be worth using.


komala

Komala

Type: Normal
Classification: Half Awake Pokemon
Height: 0.4m
Weight: 19.9kg
Ability: Comatose

Details:

No one has ever seen a Komala awake. It eats, travels, and even battles while sound asleep! Its saliva can be used as medicine for the sick or sleepless, according to ancient people. They say if you take a small amount of the saliva remaining after it eats leaves, water the saliva down, and drink it, you’ll be able to sleep well.

Komala clings to a log pillow that its parents have given to it. Once it has grasped this log, it almost never releases it. If it does lose hold of its log, the Pokémon will be unable to sleep well and will thrash about wildly. Apparently it will sometimes cling to the arm of a Trainer it trusts.

Komala has the Comatose Ability, a new Ability that no other Pokemon has ever had until now. This Ability keeps it perpetually in a drowsing state, which prevents it from getting any other status conditions.

Opinion:

Another Pokemon in the line of sleeping Pokemon, think Snorlax, or Slaking. Sometimes the sleeping Pokemon are difficult to use. I’ll reserve judgement.


salandit

Salandit

Type: Poison/Fire-type
Classification: Toxic Lizard Pokémon
Height: 2’00”
Weight: 10.6 lbs
Ability: Corrosion

Known Moves
Toxic

Details:

Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail. This poisonous gas has a sweet smell, and anyone who unknowingly breathes it in will become dizzy. Salandit is not a very powerful Pokemon, but its cunning nature allows it to battle fiercely by throwing its opponents off balance.

Salandit females not only release toxic gases, they can also emit pheromones that attract males of all species, including Pokémon and humans. Inhaling these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by Salandit’s will.

Salandit has the Corrosion Ability, a new Ability that no other Pokemon has possessed before. With the Corrosion Ability, it becomes possible to inflict the Poisoned status condition even on Steel- and Poison-type Pokemon.

Opinion:

This is my favorite new Pokemon so far. I like its ability, Corrosion and it may have a dramatic change in the game. It’s design is cool and I like the typing.


bewear

Bewear

Type: Normal/Fighting-type
Classification: Strong Arm Pokémon
Height: 2.1m
Weight: 135kg
Ability: Fluffy / Klutz

Known Moves
Hammer Arm

Details:

When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokémon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides.

When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace—but the force of that hug is tremendous! Trainers must teach these Pokémon how to restrain their strength when showing affection.

Bewear may have the Fluffy Ability, a new Ability that no Pokémon has ever possessed before. The Fluffy Ability halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but in return it also doubles the damage taken from Fire-type moves.

Opinion:

Bewear doesn’t have a creative name, to go with an ordinary design. The ability Fluffy is interesting however.


mimikyu

Mimikyu

Type: Ghost/Fairy-type
Classification: Disguise Pokémon
Height: 0.2m
Weight: 0.7kg
Ability: Disguise

Known Moves
Slash

Details:

Mimikyu lives its life completely covered by its cloth and is always hidden. People believe that anybody who sees its true form beneath the cloth will be stricken with a mysterious illness. People in the Alola region are convinced that you must never try to peek beneath its covering. Mimikyu’s health fails when it’s bathed in the rays of the sun, so it prefers to stick to dark places. It’s rumored that the reason it covers itself with a cloth is to avoid sunlight.

The rising popularity of Pikachu-styled merchandise around 20 years ago is the reason that Mimikyu makes itself look like Pikachu. In fact, this Pokémon is dreadfully lonely, and it thought it would be able to make friends with humans if only it looked like Pikachu.

Mimikyu has the Disguise Ability, a new Ability that no Pokémon has ever before possessed. The Disguise Ability allows it to escape damage from an enemy’s attack just one time, and then its appearance changes.

Opinion:

I like Mimikyu. It’s a bit weird but that’s what I like. Mimikyu’s backstory is very interesting and I like the design. The ability “disguise,”is valuable but I wonder when it will be activated.


wimpod

Wimpod

Type: Bug/Water-type
Classification: Turn Tail Pokémon
Height: 1’08”
Weight: 26.5lbs
Ability: Wimp Out

Known Moves
Struggle Bug

Details:

Wimpod have a cowardly nature and are wary of noises and sudden movements. If you approach them in a group, they’ll immediately run off. When Wimpod feel threatened, they spit out a poisonous liquid. The stench of this toxic fluid signals others that danger is near. Despite their extreme cowardice, their curiosity leads Wimpod to approach people or Pokémon that are standing still.

Wimpod eat and store anything that they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that’s been dropped in the sea, so they’re highly valued as cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokémon like Murkrow may target them.

Wimpod has the new Wimp Out Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Wimp Out Ability, if this Pokémon’s HP drops below half in battle, it will run away or swap out for another Pokémon.

Opinion:

Wimpod’s, Wimp Out ability seems like it will become a burden during battle. Hopefully, it will evolve into something more appealing. 


bounsweet

Bounsweet

Type: Grass-type
Classification: Fruit Pokémon
Height: 1’00”
Weight: 7.1 lbs
Ability: Leaf Guard / Oblivious

Details:

Because it exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, Bounsweet is popular with Pokémon and people of the Alola region. Bounsweet’s scent has a calming effect on humans, so many people let them live inside their homes as a sort of air freshener. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes swallowed whole by Pokémon drawn to its aroma.

When running away from other Pokémon, Bounsweet flees danger by skipping along the ground. Since its bouncy movements don’t convey to others that it’s actually in desperate flight, no one ever comes to its aid. When attacked by enemies, it drives them off by rotating the calyx on its head. The downside is how dizzy it gets afterward!

Opinion:

Seemingly a cross between Hoppip and Cherubi, Bounsweet looks the part of a generic grass Pokemon. I predict Bounsweet will be fast but weak. 


comfey

Comfey

Type: Fairy-type
Classification: Posy Picker Pokémon
Height: 0’04”
Weight: 0.7lbs
Ability: Flower Veil / Triage

Details:

Comfey picks flowers and always carries them around. It makes a ring of blossoms and spreads oil from its body on it, which changes the flowers so they emit a soothing fragrance. It has a habit of giving these flower rings to those it’s fond of. The aroma can soothe both itself and its allies. Comfey also helps with the treatment of people and Pokémon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals, thanks to its aroma.

When attacked by other Pokémon, it throws its flowers at them to create an opening, and then it either flees or strikes back. Comfey can have the new Triage Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Triage Ability, this Pokémon’s restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.

Opinion: 

I don’t like Comfey’s design and it reminds me of the design of Klefki, unimaginative. That said it’s Triage ability is impressive. 


mudsdale

Mudsdale

Type: Ground-type
Classification: Draft Horse Pokémon
Height: 8’02”
Weight: 2028.3 lbs
Ability: Own Tempo / Stamina

Known Moves
Highhorse Power

Details:

Mudsdale is known for its powerful body as well as its emotional fortitude, which keeps it from being agitated by anything. It never cries out, no matter what kind of trouble it’s in, and it defeats its opponents with a single powerful blow. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and the weight of this coating increases the force of its kicks. One kick, and a car is a pile of scrap!

Mudsdale’s running speed is not too swift, but it has excellent power and stamina. It can carry on for three days and three nights despite dragging loads of over 10 tons!When Mudsdale gallops in earnest, the power of each hoof-clop can dig out huge holes, even in asphalt. Mudsdale is forbidden to run on some of Alola’s public roads.

Mudsdale can have the new Stamina Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Stamina Ability, this Pokémon’s Defense goes up by 1 when it’s hit by an attack.

Opinion:

Mudsdale ability is a killer. It could be one of the better attack/defensive Pokemon. I don’t care for the hair, but its a small problem.

For those who don’t know Pokemon Go is a reality augmented app for iOS and Android. It was released on July 6th and has already been a massive success. Pokemon Go uses a virtual world on top of the real one using the GPS data. The game incentives gamers to go outside to capture Pokemon. They can be found just about anywhere. This can be a danger that Nintendo warns users of. If your not paying attention you could end up, in police stations, finding dead  bodies or getting robbed.

Boruto 

Chapter 003 – The Chuunin exam begins

“I will walk a different path from my Papa and become the Hokage.” – Sarada

As mentioned in previous post the Boruto series is starting with a retelling of the Boruto movie. The art style either got better or I have become accustom to it. Regardless, I didn’t dislike the art as much. I really liked the son of Gaara, Shiki. He seemed to be the perfect combination of his uncle, Kankuro and his father. He can use the Puppet Technique and Iron sand. However, his siblings are stylistically afterthoughts. While they are considered to be great talents, especially Yodo, they seem to be simplistically designed compared to Shiki. 

Highlights:

  • Shiki is confident in his teams abilities
  • We see Metal Lee train and he’s a lot like his father
  • Sasuke teaches Boruto, “Shurikenjutsu.”
  • Sai and Shikamaru are Chuunin exam administers
  • Boruto “cheats” with Kote during the exam

Bleach

Chapter 681 – The End two world

“We’d come to repay our debt to him” – Ginjo

Yhwach enters the portal leaving, Ichigo in “despair.” The fight was a major disappointment. I don’t know what the point of restoring Ichigo’s Bankai. Yhwach will simply destroy it again right? Of course this is Bleach and we know that Ichigo will become strong enough, simply because he can. I did find Haschwalth reaction to Yhwach “betraying” him. I think he has accepted his fate but may still want Yhwach to lose. I was surprised that Tsukishima and Ginjo returned. I hope Ichigo’s next encounter with Yhwach goes better.

Highlights:

  • Yhwach shatters Renji’s Shikai
  • Haschwalth offer’s to transfer Uryu’s wounds to himself
  • Together with Orihime, Tsukishima restore Ichigo’s Bankai
