In my humble opinion, though, SBJ in 2010 didn't have it all together up in the old noggin, so to speak (just kidding, I <3 SBJ,)because he was missing quite a few important reasons why everyone should play Pokémon. Here are those reasons.
I'm a tad busy this week preparing for MGC this weekend, but I didn't want to leave you folks hanging without a Rare Article, so I thought I'd post a battle video I did with David. You can learn more from a battle than some lousy Rare Article. You know what they say, after all. A battle video is worth a thousand words. I think that's what they say, at least.
But what if you want to do something at least a tad gimmicky, if only for the element of surprise? Well, I've got you covered. Here are three VGC strategies that won't be expected, and therefore, hopefully won't be prepared for by your opponent.
This will be an exploration of concepts in the Pokémon videogames that are often misunderstood, just like that kid who always sat alone in the middle school lunch room (read: all of us.) Get ready to have your mind blown like that Psyduck on your right.
But all of these are obvious examples. What Pokémon are out there that deserve a different typing that aren't quite as salient? Don't worry. That little brain of yours doesn't have to do any more flexing than it needs to, because I've got a handy list here after the jump.
