Already?

Seriously, it feels like it all just flew by. I'm amazed that I now have 100 blogs, and nearly 2,000 internets posts. So, to commemorate my time here posting, I've gone through the search to find some of my best posts. Here you go; all the SharKing you want, and more.

I hate Sleep. So. Freakin'. Much.

But it found a home in UU, where it clearly has a reign. A lot of Grass-types reside in UU; easy prey. Fire and Fighting is a very cool offensive combination, and it certainly has the offensive stats (120/110) to abuse it. The Choice Scarf makes it a famous revenge-killer in UU and even OU, to an extent.

Of course, it won't stay UU much longer. This kickin' chicken was secretly dreaming of a way to get back at that usurper, Infernape. And in the Dream World, it has its revenge in the form of Speed Boost! Not only that, it gained access to Hi Jump Kick, which got raised to a ridiculous 130 power (195 with STAB)! A Swords Dance or two, and it's usually game over.

If you have a Sub up, this is a wonderful thing about it: you can't get statused. Pokes that rely on status (such as walls) are usually screwed over by Subs blocking their Toxic, Thunder Wave, etc. And it usually allows you to set up on them, safely using moves like Dragon Dance, Swords Dance, Nasty Plot, and more to get ready to destroy your foe entirely. 101 HP Subs are also reliable because Blissey (among others) can't use Seismic Toss to break them the first turn; they have to use it twice before it fades.

My Blissey was used against me by a YouTuber named Icee2K1. That Mismagius Subbed up, so I couldn't Toxic-stall it. And while I struggled pointlessly to break the Sub with Ice Beam (couldn't get S-Toss, which wouldn't have helped, anyway), Mismagius set up with Calm Mind, restoring HP with Leftovers over turns. When I managed to break through, another Sub was set easily. When 6 CMs were up, it was game over.
Hey, you know me. I like to drone on about the competitive performance of a Pokemon. That's just... me.

Sandstorm clearly wins in game terms, no matter how boring flying sand is to me.

And I was totally right. Spooky, huh?

Funny. That's what I'm doing right now. And yes, I do want a prrrromotion.
