    Great article as always. And yes, you managed to creep me out this week too. :S

    Can't wait for Wednesday!

    Tanabata is a Japanese festival that occurs around July (I think). It is about the story of the milky way and lovers. . .

    As a tradition, many children write wishes down on tags (like on a jirachi's head) and then tie them onto trees in the hopes that they will be granted.


    Anywho, that paras/parasect article was awesome.

    Ok, this article creeps me out :S, but I still love it. Now that I think about it, what about the bulbasaur family? They also have a plant on their backs?

    The Bulbasaur family is instead an example of a mutual symbiosis. (which gives them the poison dual type) Unlike parasitism, both organisms are beneficial to each other. I would assume apporting inorganic and organic nutrients, plus movility etc is bulbasaur's case, but for example there's a sea tube worm that lacks digestive system, and relies on the organisms inside it to do it as they take their own ration of the same food.

    Amazing article! Now you've forever compelled me towards using parasect on my teams. Those zombie eyes...

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    Ok so I never realized that they were both cicadas which is cool. I kinda feel bad for Parasect, b/c its eyes are whited out because its possessed...what would a Paras/Parasect w/o mushrooms look like? Is there another state in which Paras and Nicada could share a baby? Because that'd be awesome...

    Lastly, this kinda of thing CAN happen to people too (more though a stange disease than spores)...if anyone has ever heard of the tree man, you know what I mean. If not, go look it up (sry CNN was the 1st link): http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/conditions/10/02/treeman.wart.skin.disorder/index.html

    Awesome column. Parasect has always been a favorite of mine. I had no idea that the tochukaso was an actual real-world fungus.
