"Why don't you come with us Val? It'll be like old times," said Reggie.
The human Tangrowth sighed. "I would love to Reggie, but, I've settled in now. I have a girlfriend, and a job. I can't just drop everything and go on an adventure. My PRT days are over man, but, if you ever need anymore support, I'll do anything I can."
Reggie walked over and the two pounded fists and then gave each other a bro hug.
"Take care of the kid, he has a lot of potential," whispered Val, though I was able to hear him thanks to my heightened hearing.
"See ya man, good luck with your life," said Reggie.
With that, we turned around and started walking for the car.
Within thirty minutes, we were back on the road back to Long Island.
"Okay, once we get to a secure area, check the map for the next gem," said Reggie.
I nodded and dug through the backpack, pulling out the gem. It was so weird, when I took the gem out, the energy radiated stro
A Quick Guide to Battle TacticsINTRODUCTIONA Quick Guide to Battle Tactics3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The point of any battle is to know your opponent and, more importantly, know your own Pokémon and be able to exploit their natural abilities and moves to the utmost in battle; despite how simple it sounds, the results in battle can often times be more than even experienced trainers can handle and can call for a major revision of one's combat strategies. The tactics used by trainers can vary extensively in any battle, but when taken down to their most basic components, each tactics and combination in battle is simple enough for even beginning trainers to understand, though it might not be so easy to enforce it in practice. What follows is a brief but comprehensive review on battle tactics and how different moves and associated powers can be used to turn even simple assaults into powerful weapons that most Pokémon will have some difficulty breaking through.
BASIC COMBAT STYLES
Offensive battling is the most common type of battling and is generally the eas
Samurott ReportSamurott (the Formidable Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Water-type Pokémon found among cold, freshwater environments within the Unova region. Impressively strong and frightening to all that disrespect them, Samurott are exceptionally powerful beasts that can easily devastate opponents with their bladed forelimbs and massive horn before a battle even begins. A type advantage won't be enough to save you from the wrath of these animals, so be careful about your choice of opposition; unless you have a Pokémon with unbelievably thick armor, you're going to have a hard time surviving against these aquatic samurais!Samurott Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The similarities that lie between the members of the Oshawott family and the Japanese samurai has been an issue among scholars for ages, as the obvious presence of an ocean between them would otherwise suggest that they never met each other before the late 600's, when the first inklings of the samurai culture began to arise. From what can be told, however, it app
Typhlosion ReportTyphlosion (the Volcano Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Fire-type Pokémon found in forests and volcanic environments within the Johto region and parts of South America. Frightening to behold in battle and devastatingly hot in terms of both temperature and temperament, Typhlosion are powerful beasts capable of easily reducing lesser opponents to charred fragments without even flinching. They might look somewhat soft and cuddly from afar, but don't mistake these beasts for wimps for a second; otherwise, the last thing you may ever hear is the sound of the explosion that incinerates you into ash!Typhlosion Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Whereas Quilava are fairly bold and levelheaded in taking on opponents, Typhlosion are wild beasts that care little about the overall strength or type of their opponent; all they want to do is watch them burn. Although Typhlosion are capable of learning several powerful physical attacks that can be used to crush smaller opponents, such as Gyro Ball (which is inaccessible to their pre-

I have a lot of good friends, a boyfriend that cares for me, and so many great things that a girl like me could ask for.
And I owe it all to the very day that changed my life forever.
It all started on a Saturday afternoon, during a dinner date at Subway with my boyfriend at the time, a kid named David. I ordered a Spicy Italian 6-inch, while he ordered a Meatball Marinara footlong. At the time, I enjoyed my sandwich. But when I saw him eat, I couldn't help but make a remark.
"You know you're gonna get a stomachache, mister!" I exclaimed.
When he heard this, he gave me a stare that made me surprised, thinking, Um what? But he shrugged it off and kept eating.
In my mind, I'm thinking He's gonna throw up! It's been the same every time we went on a lunch or dinner date: he would always order a bigger meal than myself, and would always eat too fast for me to even keep up. It'
Latias ReportLatias (the Eon Pokémon) is a legendary Dragon/Psychic-type Pokémon found in places all around the world, though only on rare occasions. Traveling in small herds and staying hidden from humans most of the time, Latias are beautiful creatures that are always willing to lend a help to Pokémon in need, even at the risk of their lives. Few trainers are ever lucky enough to see a Latias in their lifetime, but if you have a good heart and a kind spirit you have no need to worry, as you're almost guaranteed to see one before your time is done!Latias Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Latias possess a special type of down that naturally refracts light, in turn allowing them to stay hidden from sight almost 100% of the time. Although their movements can still be detected by radar, this is rarely ever an issue because they almost never appear near humans or even other Pokémon; unfortunately, this has in turn essentially made any studying of their social patterns extremely difficult if not entirely impossible. Howeve
Charizard ReportCharizard (the Flame Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Fire/Flying-type Pokémon found near volcanoes around the world and among craggy mountains in the Kanto region. Possessing a dazzling array of attacks and the ability to fly through the skies, Charizard are rightfully feared as one of the most powerful Fire-type Pokémon known to exist. They might not have the incredibly high Attack and Special Attack stats possessed by some of their contemporaries, but it cannot be denied that fire is far more dangerous to be around when it comes from above!Charizard Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Much like their pre-evolved forms, the flame on a Charizard's tail (where most of their combustion organs are located) serves a tri-fold purpose in that it is an indicator of their overall power level, emotional state and health. As with the transition from Charmander to Charmeleon, the transition from Charmeleon to Charizard grants these creatures more efficient use of their combustion organs and therefore a larger, brighter and
Cyndaquil ReportCyndaquil (the Fire Mouse Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Fire-type Pokémon found in forests and volcanic environments within the Johto region and parts of South America. Though they might be relatively timid and reluctant to battle, Cyndaquil are powerful combatants that more than make up for their nature with relatively impressive offensive skills and decent movement speeds. It might take these critters a while before they can utilize their fiery powers to the fullest extent, but once they do, you won't be disappointed with what these little fire-starters can do!Cyndaquil Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Cyndaquil are an interesting case among Fire-types in that they have two sets of combustion organs on their body, one connected to their throats and one connected to the tissue on their backs. While Cyndaquil have relatively flame-retardant fur, they nonetheless possess four large, red patches of bare skin that are incapable of growing hair because combustion occurs directly underneath the skin's surface at those
Victini ReportVictini (the Victory Pokémon) is a legendary Psychic/Fire-type Pokémon found among old ruins within and isolated islands off the coast of the Unova region. Though rarely seen by humans on any occasion, Victini are fascinating creatures that certainly take the cake when it comes to assisting others in battle. If you're a trainer with a ton of cash to blow and a bit of adventure in your spirit, then looking for one of these odd little critters might not be such a bad idea; after all, as long as you have one of these odd rodents by your side, there's no way that you can lose a battle!Victini Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
While there is very little truly known about Victini, what is apparent is that they are literally infinite sources of power; this is primarily thanks to their incredible ability to actually metabolize their own psychic energy, in turn making them an organic conduit for receiving and generating massive amounts of pure energy. Since they metabolize their psychic energy, the powers of Victini end up c
Haxorus ReportHaxorus (the Axe Jaw Pokémon) is a rare Dragon-type Pokémon found among caves and mountainous terrain within the Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Hoenn region on rare occasions and some special preserves. Relatively friendly but unbelievably dangerous to even approach, Haxorus are incredibly powerful beasts that can easily rip apart the thickest of armor without a moment's notice. They might not have the stats needed to be ranked among the greatest of fighters, but it matters very little in the context of pure battle potential; dare to underestimate them, and you'll probably end up crying after these beasts deliver a career-ending Guillotine strike to your best Pokémon!Haxorus Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Upon evolving into Haxorus, the chemical imbalance present in the brains of Fraxure seemingly disappears, leaving them with the same pleasant disposition they possessed as Axew. As such, Haxorus are among the friendliest and most easy-going Dragon-types known and actively engage in helping out both

No one has taken them all down even since the newest member joined." I nodded, "The Green Dragon right?" Asula nodded her head slightly. She looked at one of the clocks on the wall, "Brandon, it's getting late, you should head back. You should sleep on your decision and report back to me tomorrow." I nodded, "Good night Ms. Asula," I said and exited the office. I yawned and continued my way back to my room.

You might look at me as one of those average day-to-day young adults. However, that average young adult has a secret: since as far as I can remember, fame has taken over much of my life. It doesn't matter where I am, school, work, or online, everyone seems to be talking about me behind my back.
How is this possible?
Well, I had this aspiration of becoming the best filmmaker in Worcester alone. When I started, I had expected to gain enough fame to be considered one of the best in the world. However, later I had realized that it would take much longer than I had expected. Thus, I have reduced my expectations over time until it became a municipal goal, which remains successful as of today.
Now, back to my life...

Pokeumans Chapter 7The door closed behind me. "This is it Brandon," I said to myself, "This is your chance to prove yourself. You've trained hard for this day. Now let's rock and roll!" I looked up. I was in a big room with four gold doors numbered 1 to 4. Each had a lock on it. I noticed the bottom of the handle of the key I was holding felt funny. I turned it over to see a big number 1. I remembered Reggie had said the first challenger was easy, but he was an experienced battler. I walked over to the first door and jammed the huge key into the lock and turned the key. The key stuck in the door, and it slowly slid open. I triumphantly stepped through the door to challenge the first of the Elite Four, and gasped when I saw my opponent.Pokeumans Chapter 73 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The GPS allowed us to find the area of the third gem quickly enough, but it was too dark to continue the hunt, as it was almost midnight. We had already made it to the abandoned campsites, so we parked the car, built a small fire, and settled in. The ground was dry enough, the storm blowing over a few hours ago.Pokeumans Chapter 133 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Man, I'm getting really stressed out over this gem hunt thing," I said, leaning my head against a tree, "I'm still aching from when I hit the pavement earlier."
Reggie thought for a minute. "I have an idea," he said, taking off his ring and turning into his Grovyle form again.
"What are you doing?" I asked, surprised, looking around as quickly as I could. If Reggie was caught, we'd both be dead.
"Are you sure it's safe?"
"It'll be fine Brandon, according to the minion tracker app; there are no Pokéxtinction minions anywhere within twenty miles of our campsite. I'll be right back."

We were interviewed by the PNN, surrounded by adoring fans, and had a ceremony as well.Pokeumans Chapter 103 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
After about a week, the situation died down. Connor and Zane had received multiple brain scans to make sure Pokéxtinction's influence was gone forever.

Houndour ReportHoundour (the Dark Pokémon) is an uncommon Dark/Fire-type Pokémon found among forests within the Kanto, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as the Unova region on rare occasions. Though they might not be very large, Houndour are vicious little beasts that have little trouble taking down opponents much larger than themselves with coordinated teamwork and tactical precision. They might not be able to take much in the way of damage before fainting, but whenever these vicious little beasts enter the battlefield, you can almost guarantee that someone is going to get burned in the end!Houndour Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Although Houndour are generally more noted for their impressive Dark-type abilities, they actually don't earn the ability to utilize their first offensive Dark-type move until relatively late in life; instead, most of their life is spent utilizing their otherwise underdeveloped combustion organs. Even so, Houndour are powerful beasts and are able to utilize their Ember attack to scorch most types of opp

But I've also never thought something like this would happen. Changing my own life. Feeling the power inside. It happened to me. Unexpectedly.
And here's how it happened.
It all started one day in mid-September. I was taking a very unusual walk in the forest nearby. It's during this point in the year that the leaves start falling in my area. All the color of the leaves fascinated me so much that I wanted to give it a try.
All the while, thoughts entered my mind. This whole experience seemed new to me. Would I make this a new hobby of mine: taking walks in the forest? It always fascinated me to see so many colorful leaves falling before my very eyes. I never had the chance to experience it for myself.
While in thought, I was unaware of a presence nearby.

Houndoom ReportHoundoom (the Dark Pokémon) is a relatively rare Dark/Fire-type Pokémon found among forests within the Kanto, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as the Unova region on rare occasions. Dangerous to approach on even the fairest of days, Houndoom are menacing beasts that will gladly burn and devour anything foolish enough to stand in their way. They certainly might not be made to take much in the way of physical punishment, but the last thing you'll ever want is to go toe-to-toe with one of these beasts without plenty of protection against fire; don't expect any Burn Heals or berries to make much of a difference after these hounds are through, because if you ever get burned by them, you might as well consider it a permanent scar!Houndoom Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Upon evolving into Houndoom, these creatures finally gain access to their full array of Dark and Fire-type attacks (as well as the ability to learn the Thunder Fang attack with some practice) and instantly become devastating contenders on any battlefield.
