Something amazing happened this past Thursday. Something that has never, ever, ever, happened before. I beat my friend Gabe in a Pokémon battle! It was a real battle, too - he wasn't going easy on me. We had gone a few rounds already, I was on my second beer, and I had figured there was no way that I was going to beat his Hydreigon, Zapdos, Archeops, and Starmie team. What I didn't realize was he had decided to swap out his Starmie for a Cloyster. What a mistake! I had finally gotten my Whiscash to stomp Archeops, my Hydreigon somehow beat his Zapdos, and he was just left with just Hydreigon and Cloyster. Well, if you don't know - I love my Volcarona. While not my favorite Pokémon of all time, I love using it in battle. Friends, just a little Bug Buzz from my Volcarona, David Hugs, and Hydreigon was down. Cloyster came out and before he could set up with Shell Smash - Bug Buzz, Bug Buzz - Boom, Cloyster was down and Will was the winner!
All of this to remind you guys that Bug-types are 1,000 times more awesome than Dark-types and that the Pokémon this week is . . . Genesect!
