Out of your Generation V starters the things to remember about Serperior are: Dude is Grass-type. He has the most weaknesses of any of the starter types. He makes up for this defensively - he has the highest Defense and Special Defense base stats of the trio. Finally, he is the fastest - quite ready to leap out and correct you with alacrity.Read More
I’m an only child. I’ve never really felt like anyone’s “big brother”. I was always just my dad’s son and student, and didn’t really have anyone else to call family. I don’t know how I would act with a sibling. I used to wonder what it would be like. I like to think we would get along, but I don’t really know, of course.Read More
There’s no denying that what we all love about the Pokémon games is the battling. It’s the core “easy to learn, difficult to master” mechanic that’s kept many of us, myself included, coming back for more time and time again for upwards of fifteen years, and boy howdy, are the developers aware of it. If you need evidence of their own self-awareness, look no further than the vast library of Abilities.Read More
Nothing quite pulls you out of a Pokémon slump quite like a full-blown new game, does it? I’ll admit it, Abiliteers, I’ve been in the midst of a bout of disinterest of my cartridge-bound monster-wrangling. But some 20 hours into revisiting the vistas of Unova, I’ve caught the bug again (along with a Lucario and a Swadloon and a Whirlipede and…)Read More
There are plenty of Pokémon with beards but one in particular has been sticking with me this week. Today is the launch day for Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, so we all get to make that decision again - who will be our starter: Snivy, Tepig, or Oshawott? Let's be honest, many people are going to reclaim their starter from Pokémon Black or Pokémon White.Read More
With the US release of B2W2 right around the corner, I thought it'd be appropriate to share a Kyurem wallI love me some minimalist wallpapers, and I love me some Raichus. Here, the two come together in one slick presentation.So, this is completely self-indulgent, but I loved this silly image I made for AOTW and I made it wallpaper-sized!

Find out! ...On another note, as you probably noticed, updates are happening on Fridays from now on. Just so as not to clash with William's amazing Pokemon of the Week articles!Read More
I’ve brought this up more times than I care to admit lately, Abiliteers, but having covered about 2/3rds of the many Abilities in Pokémon, it gets harder and harder every week to find an interesting topic to discuss. But, folks, it appears that I’ve managed to overlook a fun one. That, or I wanted a sufficient amount to time to pass from Travis talking about it before I covered it. Either way, we’re kamikazing it up in today’s Ability of the Week: Reckless!
