PKMN of the Week: Stunfisk

I may or may not have mentioned this before, but I spent the majority of my youth split between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  I went to elementary school in Kaneohe, Hawaii and then finished my pre-college education in Port Chester, New York.  My father was obsessed with sailing and we spent every weekend on the boat.  While I have now lived in Washington, DC for over 20 years I miss the influence of the ocean on my daily life every day.

Although I have a great affinity for the ocean, I am not the biggest fan of its myriad creatures.  Let's be frank, fish are gross.  It took me about 33 years before I learned to enjoy sushi and I still have difficulty with cooked fish.  Living fish skeeve me out.  I have a tale about why I am such an ichthyophobe but that is for another day.


One thing I don't have very much experience with is lakes and lake fish.  I've never been to Minnesota or visited the Great Salt Lake so I am not sure how lake fish are different from ocean fish.  I do know one thing though:

Hurricane is a Special-Category Flying-Type move, with a natural PP count of 10 that can be bumped up to a maxumum of 16, 120 Power, and 70% accuracy, and has a 30% chance of confusing the foe (essentially making it a Flying-Type variant of Thunder, but with a chance of inflicting Confusion rather than Paralysis). In one turn, you could potentially severly damage your opponent, confuse them, and then sit back and relax as they end up taking the rest of their own HP out by hitting themselves.

PotW: Galvantula

Hey there everyone! Ever since the early days of the podcast, the guys at PKMNcast have always been 100%-accuracy-or-nothing kind of people. Whenever Hydro Pump, Fire Blast, or Thunder make an appearance in the Featured Team segment, it's always been very common for the hosts to suggest one of the 90 damage 100 accuracy moves as a replacement. As unfortunate as it is, the big-hitting, low accuracy moves are just too risky to be dependable in competitive battles.  But what if I told you that there was a Pokemon that, through use of its ability, was able to bump one of those mega-powerful moves up to 100% accuracy? Well, this week's Pokemon of the Week, Galvantula, can do just that!
