I was remembering today how I used to use my livejournal for fun things, like pokemon and anime and like, let's do more of that. So today's post will be pokemon!! In bullet point fashion!! I haven't even posted about XY despite playing it every single day since release.
I love me some XY you guys. It can't surpass my love for gen 5, but it's such a good step for pokemon. I was worried about the transition to the 3DS not feeling like pokemon anymore, but that totally didn't happen. The story wasn't all that special but what can you expect from such a huge leap. I really like all the new pokemon but pancham is still my favorite baby. I fell in love with skrelp along the way and I really like Amaura/Swirlix thanks to my playthrough ones, but not enough to hardcore collect them right now.
Speaking of collecting..!
My new babies!! If there's anything good about only 70ish new pokemon it's that the ones we got get merched. Pancham isn't even on the anime cast (yet?) and he got all this. With a steady stream of figures and such for him and pangoro in the future.
Side note, if anyone wants a talonflame or litleo retsuden magnet feel free to let me know. Just like $4 maybe?? I paid like $25 for the sheet because pancham collectors apparently like to match my crazy, but i'd rather just pass them on than have them sit in a drawer.
My other XY loves that have gotten plushed so far!
I love the new pokedolls. I find chespin to be the cutest thing ever and he's my least favorite starter! Though that's not saying much since I love them all. The new tags are fun too, it's nice to see them switch it up. Can't wait for the next set of pokedolls. *u* I need to pick up xerneas, yveltal and the goomy/amaura pokecen plush at some point as well, gosh.
I went to ikea with some friends a while back and got lights for my expedit unit!!
They don't photograph all that well, but they CHANGE COLORS and i love them muchly. because colors.
I think the last thing pokemon I have to talk about is shiny hunting! I still avidly hunt shinies, mostly in XY at the moment aside from Latios in black 2 who refuses to shine! I've had pretty good luck so far, I try to stick to full odd shines as I find them the most exciting, but if you want a shiny in XY without spending tons of time there's currently the pokeradar, friend safari, chain fishing AND the shiny charm so, yeah. Also I guess the normal odds have been halved as well? Shinies for all!!
Adorable torchic will lead you to my Shiny exploits.
I think that's all for now! I've fallen in love with quite a few new anime series, so my next post will probably be about that!
Atta boy, self. Make posting promises despite only posting once every other month.
