Hall of Fame pt. 2

Much like my post last Monday, where I detailed my return to Pokemon Alpha Sapphire after a five year hiatus, I picked up Pokemon Moon this past week, determined to conquer it. I got to the Team Skull base in Po Town last time around, but never actually finished the game.

This time, when I booted up a new file, I amended a past wrong – in my first failed run, I chose Litten as my starter. But I chose Popplio for this attempt, because I have always had my best results when I’ve chosen the water starter. Water starters 4life. Though Primarina is definitely my least favorite of the water starters thus far.

Alola definitely isn’t my favorite region – none of them come close to Johto, for me – but I did admire the changes the games implemented. The trials were fun, though I much prefer standard gyms. Z moves were fun, but I kind of missed Mega Evolution. The Alolan dex is also my least favorite dex, though I LOVE the Alolan variants of the Kanto Pokemon, like Raichu and Marowak. The story-line was compelling, though I’m not sure I’ll delve too deep into the post-game. I’ve been wandering a bit, collecting the Zygarde cells, finding hidden paths, and might just take a peek into what the Ultra Beasts are all about…

However, on this run, I also tried to do things that I normally don’t. I managed to secure a team with a solid theme – half cute, half scary. Team Cute n’ Scary, if you will. And I was super pleased with the balance of my team, as I think I used everyone just about evenly and had a way to combat just about every type of competition. I also finally achieved my goal of using a fairy-type on my main squad. Thus, now that I’ve become Alola’s first Champion, I thought I’d document my team. Team Cute n’ Scary consisted of…
