If I had to pick between Pokemon and Yugioh as the most unbalanced and broken game, I would have to pick Pokemon.

Despite Yugioh having perhaps the worst power creep of any TCG in human existence, at least I could feasible compete if I wished by just using whatever broken metadeck that is currently popular, regardless if I’m good or not. But Pokemon’s barrier of entry just to play is so obnoxious although it is way less expensive. You either waste an annoying about of time just to battle online because your in-game team is useless or you play using some simulator which allows you to easily adjust all that min/max bullshit that is absolutely necessary despite the mechanics themselves being pure shit. Yugioh probably has the worst community but the Pokemon community is so obnoxious and thinks so highly of competitive play that it makes me sick. The ones that compare it to chess are probably the worst and it’s not so much that they bother me but that the shit they say is infuriating. I got no problem with people that think highly of it but there is no way on Earth a video game with over 700 characters could ever be balanced IMO. There will inevitably be the “inferior” ones and then the “superior” ones that all competitive battlers use because those Pokemon actually fucking win and not lose.

A good comparison between a superior and an inferior Pokemon is Garchomp and Flygon. Garchomp pretty much outright replaced Flygon and saw heavy competitive usage and even had to be banned by some of the fans because it was too devastating. Garchomp also gained the utterly broken Outrage move in Platinum IIRC and that move by itself made so many Dragon-types broken and insufferable to deal with. Meanwhile, almost everything that Flygon could’ve done was being done better by Garchomp so people ended up playing to it’s very few strengths with access to moves Garchomp didn’t have. Of course, none of that mattered in the end because one Pokemon got a Mega and the other didn’t. Flygon is pure shit when compared to Garchomp and this is one of the many examples of Game Freak not giving a single shit about newer Pokemon power creeping the old ones. In fact, Game Freak just doesn’t give a shit period.

But Yugioh players are more likely to physically assault you and steal your shit so I guess they too are in a league of their own. Of course, a card game managed by Konami has very little chance of seriously being good at anything else other than making profit. Although it may seem like I hate these things, I like both of them but it makes me laugh when people say Yugioh and Pokemon are balanced games. Konami and Game Freak cannot balance for shit. Even more laughable is when people think these companies give a damn about them. Yeah, they give a damn about your money.

I made a “Dragon-type” team a few days ago and it was composed of all the available non-Legendary Dragon-types in the Unova Dex. In addition to Samurott which I always use, it’s composed of Hydreigon, Haxorus, Altaria, Druddigon, and Flygon. No, it’s not a true mono-type type but I only made it out of boredom. The biggest flaw is that I don’t have a good Grass/Electric move among them aside from tutors and I don’t want to collect shards for them.

Today I did something similar and I am currently training to grind up a bunch of random Bug-type Pokemon. I have Leavanny, Scolipede, Galvantula, and Volcarona. Since I have no Bug-type Pokemon that can use Fly, I am forced to use Flygon again but it still somewhat fits since it’s in the Bug Egg Group. Also, I am still using Samurott.

I can't choose which starter to pick in Sun/Moon even though I won't play these games for a very long time. Still, it's something that's fun to think about. My team ends up looking the best with Primarina but I kind of want Incineroar more. The problem is the choice of avaialbe Water-types in the first island aren't terribly good. Arcanine and Lilligant are good Fire/Grass-type so they suppot Primarina well. Had the fishing rod been available in the first island, I would have access to things like Gyarados and the new Wishiwashi. Slowbro and Pelipper are nice but my team is quite slow because Alola is just a slow region. Rowlet is probably going to be my thrid option solely because everyone else is enjoying Rowlet and I want to give the other two a chance. Well, that's not a terribly good reason. I do like Decidueye. But similar to Incineroar, their aren't too many good Water-types to support it and Moon has Lilligant as an exclusive too.

There must be more to life than grinding up a Zweilous, there has to be!

I was playing Pokemon White 2 today and a large portion of it was just me training up Volcarona. My original team is very close to hitting Level 100 so I have a bunch of secondary teams whenever I want to use something different. Along with that I have a Haxorus, Crobat, Arcanine, and Magnezone in training too. They are way underleveled so it's a pain to get them all leveled-up even with the Lucky Egg. I don't do EV or IV stuff so I just need to get the EXP so they can fight the Elite Four without being destroyed (I get plenty of destroyed in the PWT because I don't use properly EV trained Pokemon but whatever.) For the few that are curious, my first Hall o Fame team was Samurott/Darmanitan/Ampharos/Lucario/Zoroark/Unfezant.

So I just seen the new forms for Exeggutor, Sandshrew/Sandslash, and Vulpix/Ninetales. Exeggutor truly is living up to it's palmtree motif now more than ever although the Dragon-typing was unneeded. Sandshrew and Sandslash being Ice-types is a pretty cool concept and I love how Sandslash looks (not to mention it's part Steel at that point.) Vulpix and Ninetales are just okay I guess. Not really a massive fan of those two Pokemon. They are also part Ice but Ninetales becomes a Fairy-type to go along with the whole mysticalism stuff. My favorite is probably Sandslash but Exeggutor is so bizarre it will be the most memorable and lastly the Vulpix line is underwhelming.

Finding out about this news actually made me look for my Pokemon LeafGreen game that's somewhere in this house but I couldn't find it. Oh well.
