I Finally Figured Out How to Change the Title of My Blog

@Fab; started it I guess. So you go here, I guess, and you generate Pokemon and then review whatever you get, no exceptions, I guess. I didn't change any filters from the default other than making six Pokemon other than one, I guess. Keep in mind that I'm not exactly up to speed when it comes to playing the Pokemon games themselves, I guess, so I've never used most of these in an actual battle and so I'll be judging them mostly on appearance and type, I guess. So let's get started, I guess.

1. Kricketot
Bug type



So it's a cricket. Yeah. I've never been a fan of its design, it just comes across as over-designed and yet boring. I like Kricketune's design more, since its whole deal as a cricket/conductor is more obvious, but that can't make up for its status as "just another Bug-type", from what I know, and I don't even have the better of the two for time being.

2. Registeel
Steel type



If I have this bad boy on my team, then I wonder why I also have a freaking Kricketot. This guy has always been my favorite of the Generation III golems, because it looks so spacey and exotic, and even though I've never really used one, I remember the one in XD: Gale of Darkness being cool and having a freaky-sounding call that sounds like something out of a Godzilla movie to boot. (There was one in Gale of Darkness, right? I remember a 3D Registeel with a Godzilla call from somewhere.) Being Steel-type, it has to be good defensively and if I remember correctly from XD as well as presume rightly since it's all War of the Worlds space alien and stuff, I'm pretty sure it focuses on Special Attack, offensively. It's super cool-looking and I don't mind this random member of my random team at all.

3. Unfezant
Normal/Flying type



Finally, my first dual-type on the team! Even if it's Generation V's obligatory Normal/Flying-type, they're usually pretty good Pokemon, I think. I've never played any Generation V game at all, but I must say that I like Unfezant's design, looking less like an eagle/falcon/hawk and more like a secretary bird or that one bird with the blue head that kicks things. You know that one? It has a name, I think. It's not an emu, by the way, it was something else. Anyway, not much to say other than that Unfezant seems like a solid Pokemon and I don't mind on my team.

4. Buneary
Normal type



And now I return to Underwhelming Land. A boring Normal-type that isn't fully evolved and just evolves into a weird-looking were-rabbit Normal-type anyway. But what do I know? Maybe it's cool in the actual game. I don't think I'd be walking around with one, though.

5. Raticate
Normal type



This is it for the Normal-types, I swear! This is also the first member of my team that I actually have real experience with (at least, more than a glancing familiarity like I have with Registeel). That being said, I wish it didn't have to be this tosser. It's an okay Normal-type, if only because of Hyper Fang (and I don't even know if more Pokemon can learn Hyper Fang in later generations and how many), but if I want a pure Normal-type I'm going with Stantler or Miltank first. It's ugly, yes, but it's not gaudy, at least. And let me just avoid mentioning how annoying it is in the wild, even though I kinda just did.

6. Rhydon
Ground/Rock type



Rhydon, the first Pokemon ever designed. I prefer its pre-evolution Rhyhorn's design because it's much more clearly based on a rhinoceros, but better stats don't hurt Rhydon's case. It was a great physical berserker while it lasted, but it's since been over-shadowed by the likes of Steelix and Tyranitar. Although others do its job better, I have nothing actually negative to say about him, other than an unfocused design, and I don't regret having him on my team.

On another note, after this list, I generated Pokemon one-by-one to get Pokemon that I could actually see myself using alongside Unfezant, Registeel, and Rhydon, and my "Randomly-Generated Team that I'd Actually Use" is Rhydon, Registeel, Unfezant, Scizor, Amoongus, and Mienshao.

So that's that, I guess. Fascinating, right? I guess?

    Actually, Registeel focuses on both of its defenses, which are both at a base value of 150. Both of its offensive stats sit at 75. It's a decent mixed wall, or at least it would be if it had a good recovery move (no, Rest isn't good).

    Holy cow, who needs a recovery move with defense stats like that? I bet I could figure something out for it. I'm not a competitive kind of guy at all (no real-life friends and no games newer than LeafGreen yaaaaay), but I'm sold. :P

    There are online battle simulators that pretty much every competitive player uses. The two bigwigs are Pokémon Online (download) and Pokémon Showdown! (in-browser).
