Wait. What's Taco doing with his keyboard!? Get him away from it!
Whoa! I just did my first International Challenge with my new party!
So much to say!
To be honest, I did worse than I expected. There were some things I didn't anticipate.
The day before the challenge started, I did the Random Matchup to practice. I won 8 out of 9 battles. (My confidence soared!)
On the first day of the International Challenge, I lost 5 of 6 Pokémon battles! In the end, I won 18 battles and lost 20.
First of all, too many
After about 1 year, I did it!
I've been working on creating an amazing Pokémon party, and it's complete now! Just in time for the 2013 International Challenge!
My party is a Pseudo-Legendary theme! I've got Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamence, Metagross, Garchomp, and Hydreigon!
I haven't really done that much competetive battling. The last tournament I participated in was one year ago. (It was a little while before I started contemplating this team.) I
Holy taco-in-a-box! There are 18 types now!
Like for many other blog posts, the news revealed earlier is the topic today!
The Fairy type has been revealed. It's super effective against the Dragon type (there was even a nice little picture of Sylveon beating up the brutal Hydreigon). That's just great. The Pokémon team that I've been revamping for the past year has 4 dragons in it.
I've gotta know the weakness of the Fairy type! It can't be Dark (poor Hydreigon).
Well, I just thought of some things that I want to discuss.
For Pokémon that evolve by combining with others (like Magnemite and Beldum), what happens if they're shiny? Do they have to combine with other shiny Pokémon, or can they combine with regular Pokémon and have the dominant phenotype?
On the same topic of Pokémon that combine with others, do both Pokémon have to be ready to evolve, or can one be a freeloader and get to evolve early?

After school ended for me less than 2 weeks ago, I resumed logging onto the forums regularly. During the school year, I rarely logged on; it was only to keep my claims. But now that I'm back, I've noticed that while some things have remained constants, others have greatly changed.
(One thing that I myself changed was this blog title. I became disenchanted with "Blog del Taco," It was awesome, but it was also too unoriginal.)
So many people have come and gone
