Racing the Mind

Random thoughts I decide to blog about.

  1. UC's Y Adventure part 5: Let's Finish the Party!

    Finally reached my goal of making a team with one Pokemon from each generation! (after an evolution, that is) Caught a female Piloswine, so once she evolves I'll have that balanced-type team! My team also has 3 males and 3 females, while my Gen V teams were always 4 males/ 2 females.

    Speaking of Mamoswine, that riding sequence is very silly. It's just your character sitting on top of a mound burying itself in snow! I think that running into Pokemon while in a giant snow bank is a ...

  2. UC's Y Adventure part 4: Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!

    Ramos was defeated decently. (a little harder than I expected though) So was Clemont. I actually didn't need to grind too much to beat him.

    I have to say, I LOVED Clemont's Gym. Is it too much to say that it rivals Elesa's BW2 Gym in terms of awesome spectacle? I liked the camera angles with the answers, and I wish the quiz portion lasted a little longer. So that's what Bonnie's job is ingame! (I had a dog named Bonnie that died of old age last summer.)

    Now that my ...
  3. UC's Y Adventure part 3: Riding Skiddo is fun!

    Holy moly, is that fun! I could ride around for hours. It's funny that the trainers along that route don't challenge you when you're sitting on that little grass goat.

    I was also impressed by the scene with Korrina and her Lucario at the Tower of Mastery. I got there at night, which made it very pretty. So I guess Game Freak fully adopted the thing where you send one of your party members straight to the PC when someone gives you a new Pokemon, a la the BW mascots during that climactic ...
  4. UC's Y Adventure part 2: So THAT'S A Fairy?!

    I can't believe how far apart the first two badges are in these games! I give props to Game Freak for making more towns without Gyms, but I expected to battle Grant much sooner. It's a nice change of pace from Unova, though, but reminds me of how long it took to battle Hugh a second time in BW2.

    There are some awesome visuals in XY! I love the little touches they added, like adding artwork, although I wish we could better looks at some of those paintings. The camera feature is really ...
  5. NYCC/ XY Nintendo World Launch Recap!

    I don't think I've still recovered.

    Last weekend was absolutely exhausting, but rewarding. I knew NYCC would be off the hook when X and Y were announced to be released around the world that weekend. My big toe is still bruised.

    So let's cut to the chase. I had a 4-day badge and cosplayed as a Litwick on Thursday and a Mega Absol on Friday and Saturday. Thursday night into Friday I was brazen enough to camp on the sidewalk outside Nintendo World to guarantee myself an ...
