Last Play-Through Update

Hey Everyone!

I have decided not to continue posting main story play-through updates. There are way too many spoilers from this point on, and I don't want to spoil any surprises in store for those of you who haven't finished the main story yet. I have beaten the Elite Four and the Champion already, so trust me, you don't want any of the plot line revealed. The story line is great, and I am sure glad I didn't read anything about it online.

You may be asking, "What now then?"

I will be updating with my info about my shiny hunts, competitive teams and strategies, special events, and really anything Pokemon X and Y related that I find.

And of course, I will always be trading and posting on the Gamers' Community Forums. My username is Scribbler397 if you want to trade or battle sometime!

My Oshawott and Shiny Hunting Club Banners

I made a couple banners recently and thought I would share them. The first one is a banner for the Gamer's Community Forums Shiny Hunting Club.

The second is a banner that I plan on using in my various forum signatures.

Froakie Pixel Art

I found myself longing for the nostalgia of Pokemon pixel art, so I decided to make some sprites for the new Gen 6 Pokemon myself. Here is the first sprite that I made:

Froakie was my starter in Gen 6, so I felt it was only right to start my Gen 6 pixel art with it! 

What do you guys think?

Update 9

When I last posted, I had just challenged Gym Leader Grant to a battle. Frogadier and I won the battle, with a little help from the rest of the team.

After I got the badge, I started on the road to the next city, only to discover that Team Flare was interested in the mysterious rocks surrounding the nearest town. I gave chase and battled them, but they managed to get away. 

My Pokemon and I decided to do a little training before the next gym, and while walking through the tall grass, we found an Abra to add to our team. Not long after, Abra evolved into Kadabra.

Update 8

I updated the My Team page. I have been mainly working on training my Pokemon and catching a couple that I didn't have yet. I have also been doing a lot of Wonder Trading, and have gotten some cool Pokemon from that. A new post will be coming soon!

If you want to chat, trade, or battle, come and join in the fun on the Gamers' Community Forums! There is even a Pokemon X and Y Battle League! It is a great chance to make some new friends.

Update 7

In my last post, my Pokemon and I had just made it past the Snorlax roadblock and continued on the path toward the next gym. The road to Cyllage City Gym was full of surprises.

After making it past the Snorlax, I was introduced to the Battle Chateau -- a facility where trainers with titles of nobility may battle with others of the same standing. I was granted a title and my Pokemon and I trained there for a little bit.

While battling at the Battle Chateau, Pidgey, Riolu, and Charmander evolved.

Update 6

The last time I posted, my Froakie had just evolved into a Frogadier, and I worked on training and maxing out its base stats. After that, I decided to continue on to the next town.

It had a quaint little castle, and a charming inn, but unfortunately, no gym. I decided that it was time to move on, but I met a roadblock.

Update 5

The last time I posted, Froakie had just  evolved in Frogadier. After that, I decided that it was time to start working on my Pokemon's stats. 

I found a Reset bag and used it to reset Frogadier's base stats. Then I started training it's Special Attack, Speed, and HP/Attack in equal amounts. Mostly working on having it be able to be a sweeper. I have its stats completely maxed out.

Riolu is up next on my training regimen, and I already have a Reset bag to use on it, but I am going to get all of the training medals first so that it will go faster after I reset. I read online that by using that method, you can completely max out the stats in about half an hour. It was too late with Frogadier to use this method, because I had already reset and trained it halfway when I learned  about it.

After Riolu, it is Pikachu's turn. I am going to max out its Special Attack, HP, and Speed.

Are you maxing out your Pokemon's stats first and then leveling up, or are you going to wait a while? Tell us in the comments below!

Update 4

When I last posted, Froakie and I had challenged Gym Leader Viola to a battle.

She used a Lv. 10 Surskit and a Lv. 12 Vivillon. My team of three and I battled hard, and came out the victors in the end. Gym Leader Viola presented us with a shining Bug badge as proof of our victory.

I decided to head out to Lumiose City next, and was met on the way by two of the Professor's older trainers whom he had sent on the same journey that I was now on two years ago. They informed me that the Professor wanted to meet me at his lab.

Update 3

The last time I posted, I had just gotten my new partner, Froakie. Since then, I have had some exciting adventures!

Here is a picture of Froakie's first battle! After receiving Froakie, I was challenged to a battle. I battled against Shauna, who chose Fennekin as their partner. Froakie won the battle with ease.

Update 2

After months of waiting, Pokemon X and Y have finally come out! I got Pokemon X, and started my journey through the Kalos region today.

First, I will show you guys some pictures of the box and start screens.

Update 1

I just got the game, and will be updating later with pictures and info. For now, I have update the My Team Page with info on my Pokemon. Check back later for some pics, and don't forget to follow the blog so you don't miss any of the excitement!

Charizard X

Not too much has been announced since my last post, so this one will be quick. Just going to give you guys some info on the AWESOME Mega Charizard X!

Mega Charizard X

This thing looks amazing! The color is reminiscent of a shiny Charizard, so it makes me wonder: 
what will a shiny Mega Charizard X look like? 

The game comes out in only two days. When the game is released, I will be posting pictures and stories about my journey through the Kalos region and some musings that I have along the way. I will also be discussing competitive play in the new games, so stay tuned!

Pokemon Gotta Catch 'Em All Codes

After scouring the Internet for the Pokemon Gotta Catch 'Em All Sweepstakes codes, I found that I was still missing most of them. (I'll be honest, I didn't really bother searching too hard.) However, through the magic of Google, I found a website that lists the majority of them all on one page. All you have to do is copy and paste the code to unlock your free digital prize and enter the sweepstakes for real prizes. So while we wait (impatiently) for X and Y to be released, score yourself some cool Pokemon ringtones, notification tones, and screensavers.

If you still want to search for them yourself, don't click this link here.

I will note ahead of time though, before you think that the codes don't work, that the hint has to have been released for that code in order for it to work. Unfortunately, whichever one has the Oshawott notification tone hasn't been released yet. Must. Have. Oshawott!

Pokemon X and Y Nintendo 3DS XL Systems

Limited edition Pokemon X and Y themed 3DS XL systems.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y themed Nintendo 3DS XL systems are now available in stores. Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are sold separately from the systems. It is interesting that they are releasing the themed system so far from the release date. The Pokemon Company could have created more of a frenzy had they released them with the game a week before the game itself was available in stores. 

What do you think? 
Was this a smart move on behalf of the Pokemon Company, 
or could they have played their hand better?

Pokemon Movie and XY Sneak Peak

Pokemon fans across the U.S. are excited for the premier of the new Pokemon movie Genesect and the Legend Awakened on October 19th. Viewers across the nation will finally get to watch Mega Mewtwo in action.

Now viewers have even more to look forward to, because the official Pokemon website has announced that a sneak preview of the new Pokemon X and Y anime series will air after the movie.

Do you plan on tuning in to watch Genesect and the Legend Awakened premier?

New Evolution Announced - Doublade

The official Pokemon website has announced a new evolved Pokemon: Doublade. 

(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

This Steel and Ghost type is the evolved form of Honedge. It really doesn't look all that different from its pre-evolved form, other than the fact that it now has pink markings and there are two of them. Doublade's height is the same as Honedge's, confirming the fact that it is essentially two Honedge put together. However, its weight has more than doubled from 4.4 pounds to 9.9. Two Honedge would weigh 8.8 pounds together, so one can assume that the added weight is from the link holding the two sheaths together.

I am a little on the fence about this Pokemon. I can't really decide whether I like it or not.

What do you think? 
Do you like this evolution, or would you have rather seen this Pokemon go in a different direction?

New Fossil Pokemon

The official Pokemon X and Y site announced two new fossil Pokemon and their evolutions today. By restoring the Jaw Fossil, you can obtain the Pokemon Tyrunt. Tyrunt (which sounds an awful lot like tyrant) is a Rock and Dragon type Pokemon. 
(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

This rather small Pokemon (it is only 2 feet and 7 inches tall) evolves into massive Tyrantrum, measuring 8 feet and 2 inches high and weighing in at a whopping 595.2 pounds!

(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

By restoring the Sail Fossil, you can obtain the Pokemon Amaura. Amaura is a Rock and Ice type Pokemon, and has the new Refrigerate ability, which turns Normal type moves into Ice type moves. 

 (Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

Amaura evolves in Aurorus. Aurorus can learn the new Ice type move Freeze Dry. This attack could potentially freeze the target.

(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

I like the designs of all four of these Pokemon. The color schemes of both Pokemon are quite nice. They did a good job choosing those. Based solely on type advantage, I have a feeling that the Sail Fossil is going to be a popular choice. But if this were a decision of which one looked more intimidating, I feel that the Jaw Fossil would be the way to go. 

It is going to be hard to choose between these two Fossil evolutionary lines.You'll have to wait until after the game is released on October 12th to see which one I choose!

Which one of these Fossil Pokemon are you going to choose?

New Pokemon - Litleo and Pyroar

The new Pokemon Litleo is a very cute little Fire and normal type Pokemon. 

(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

Litleo honestly reminds me of Shinx, released in generation four. However, I might have a hard time finding a spot for this Pokemon on my team. Fennekin is adorable, and if I don't choose Fennekin as my Kalos starter, then I am choosing Charmander as the Kanto starter. There are also Fletchling and Talonflame to consider as well. Decisions, decisions.

Back to Litleo though. Litleo evolves into Pyroar, which has different male and female appearances. 

Male Pyroar(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)
Female Pyroar(Image from the official Pokemon X and Y website.)

The male Pyroar has an impressive mane, although one must wonder how it can hear anything with all of that fur covering its ears. Female Pyroar's mane reminds me of a ponytail, which is probably what they were going for. If I do use this Pokemon on my team, I think that I will catch a male Litleo to evolve into Pyroar, because I prefer the appearance of the male Pyroar's mane.

What do you think? Would you choose the male or female Pyroar?
