  1. Pokemon Platinum Update: The Final Team

    by , 25th March 2009 at 04:08 PM (Musings of a Collegiate Caffeine Addict)
    So the votes are in (no one actually voted except for me...) and I've made my final team for the journey to the Elite Four. Now for the announcement of the team:

    Slot One goes to... Infernape! No shock there.

    Slot Two goes to... Luxray! Also, no shock there.

    Slot Three goes to... Gengar! The reason for this move is that I don't have the TM's I need for Alakazam quite yet, and my Gengar has great moves already.

    Slot Four goes to... Gallade! ...

  2. Yet Another Pokemon Platinum Update

    by , 25th March 2009 at 12:17 AM (Musings of a Collegiate Caffeine Addict)
    So I figured out how to make my Pokemon Platinum team not suck as hard. I've decided to call in some reinforcements from Diamond. But I still do want the game to be a challenge, so my only rule is that I'm not bringing in anyone that is higher level than my Infernape (currently at 44). But this still gives me a ton of possibilities.

    So here's the Pokes I have:

    On the team no matter what (Locks):

    FlameChimp (Infernape, Level 44) - my starter and I'm actually ...
  3. Most Ridiculous Gym Battle Ever

    by , 24th March 2009 at 01:04 PM (Musings of a Collegiate Caffeine Addict)
    Alright, this is a bit of a random Platinum note, but I had maybe the strangest gym battle I have ever had in any Pokémon game against Byron. As everyone knows, Steel, Byron’s specialty, is only weak to fire and fighting attacks and resists almost everything else. Now I only have one Pokémon on my entire team with either one of these typed attacks; my Infernape (which is by far the best Pokémon on my team). Speaking of Infernape, I freaking love that flaming monkey of death. He's now in fact ...

  4. Pokemon Platinum Update

    by , 23rd March 2009 at 04:22 PM (Musings of a Collegiate Caffeine Addict)
    Due to a major oversight of mine, I forgot that traded Pokemon don't obey until you get two badges. So the team I had planned had to be scrapped. Even though I just got my third badge from Fantina, I'm still sticking with the freshly caught team.

    Here they are:

    Monferno (FlameChimp): Level 27
    Mach Punch
    Flame Wheel

    Roserade (Drew) [I traded in the stones to make this happen]: Level 20
    Poison Sting

    by , 23rd March 2009 at 04:09 AM (Musings of a Collegiate Caffeine Addict)
    Continuing the sports blogging streak I am on right now, I am going to fearlessly make 32 sports predictions for the rest of this year. And I will edit this post as I am proven wrong / right

    #1: Louisville will win the NCAA men's basketball championship

    Result: WRONG! looks like I'm 0 for 1 already.

    #2: Manchester United will win the Champions League and the Premier League this season

    #2: The New York Yankees will NOT make the playoffs this ...
