It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.

Beldum ReportBeldum (the Iron Ball Pokemon) is a rare Steel/Psychic-type Pokemon found among mountainous terrain and forested areas within the Hoenn and Unova regions as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Though fairly useless in combat alone, Beldum are fascinating organisms whose very existence pushes the boundary between machine and life. They might not be able to do much else other than recklessly throw themselves at the opposition, but once they do manage to evolve, there won't be much stopping these little beasts from tearing apart everything that gets in their way!Beldum Report in Profiles More Like This

Carnivine ReportCarnivine (the Bug Catcher Pokemon) is a rare Grass-type Pokemon found among forests and jungle environments within the Unova region, many parts of Africa and the Kanto and Johto regions on rare occasions. Though perhaps not as strikingly fearsome as other Grass-type fighters, Carnivine are vicious beasts that will gladly take apart their opponents piece by piece even if it means putting themselves in danger in the process. They might not have much to offer professional fighters in the way of move variety or even stats, but if you need a Grass-type that can bite its way through the opposition and stay safe from a Ground-type assault, you woCarnivine Report in Profiles More Like This
Snover ReportSnover (the Frost Tree Pokemon) is an uncommon Grass/Ice-type Pokemon found among icy mountaintops within the Sinnoh region. Surprisingly inquisitive and isolated among Grass-types, Snover are adorable creatures that can fight back with considerable strength in battle despite their small size. You probably won't see many of these creatures in the wild, but if you do, chances are that you'll end up seeing far more than just one; it may sound cute at first, but you would be surprised how awkward it would feel to be hiking and suddenly have five or more of these strange plants staring at you in the middle of nowhere!Snover Report in Profiles More Like This

Rhyhorn ReportRhyhorn (the Spikes Pokemon) is a relatively uncommon Ground/Rock-type Pokemon found among caverns and mountainous terrain within the Kanto, Johto and Sinnoh regions as well as parts of the Unova region on rare occasions. While they might not be as carefree as Slowpoke in their otherwise general dopiness, Rhyhorn are destructive brutes that can easily tear down opponents and entire skyscrapers with their devastating Horn Attack and Take Down moves. Of course, one really can't blame them for the destruction they cause; they're just too stupid to realize what they are doing most of the time!Rhyhorn Report in Profiles More Like This

Baltoy ReportBaltoy (the Clay Doll Pokemon) is an uncommon Ground/Psychic-type Pokemon found among abandoned ruins and desert environments within the Hoenn and Unova regions as well as the Kanto and Sinnoh regions on rare occasions. Though perhaps a bit too unusual in appearance and mannerisms for some to handle, Baltoy are energetic creatures that can certainly make things difficult for traditional fighters with their unique mix of powerful attacks and techniques. They may not be able to deal much in the way of damage against most opponents, but at the very least, these little automatons can take a hit; do yourself a favor and try not to anger them tooBaltoy Report in Profiles More Like This
Drowzee ReportDrowzee (the Hypnosis Pokemon) is a relatively uncommon Psychic-type Pokemon found among grassy fields and forests within the Kanto and Johto regions as well as Berry Forest of the Sevii Islands and the Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions. Although they may not be very fast, Drowzee are reliable Pokemon that specialize in putting their opponents to sleep in order to devour their dreams, making them a literally nightmare to deal with early-on. Unless you have a recurring dream that you want to see disappear completely from your mind, do your best to stay away from these beast in the dead of night; even if you have a nice dream, thereDrowzee Report in Profiles More Like This
Dodrio ReportDodrio (the Triple Bird Pokemon) is a relatively rare Normal/Flying-type Pokemon found among grassy plains and savannas within the Kanto and Johto regions as well as the Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions. While generally too bizarre for most trainers to handle, Dodrio are fierce birds that can easily peck their way through most unarmored opponents with little trouble. If you know what's good for you, though, you should never try to approach one of these creatures when all of its heads are looking in different directions; it might not always see you before you see it, but it's unlikely that you will be able to outrun them once you gDodrio Report in Profiles More Like This
Munchlax ReportMunchlax (the Big Eater Pokemon) is a rare Normal-type Pokemon found among grassy plains, forests and occasionally urban areas within the Sinnoh region. Though fairly slow in most cases and seemingly pointless to have around if one does not eat on a constant basis, Munchlax are fun-loving creatures that can easily give young trainers looking for a good partner the friend they need. If anything else, these strange beasts certainly prove that being a mutant infant isn't always a bad thing in practice; just make sure that you can afford to keep feeding them on a constant basis, or the evolution into a Snorlax may end up being cheaper in the loMunchlax Report in Profiles More Like This
Giratina ReportGiratina (the Renegade Pokemon) is a legendary Ghost/Dragon-type Pokemon usually found only in the confines of the Distortion Realm, its home-dimension. Poorly understood to the extreme and difficult to comprehend in light of the normal world's physical properties, Giratina is nonetheless an impressively powerful beast that has proven on the few occasions it has been seen that it is truly a fearsome beast that should be respected.

Absol ReportAbsol (the Disaster Pokemon) is a rare Dark-type Pokemon found among mountainous terrain within the Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova regions as well as the Kanto and Johto regions on rare occasions. Though often considered to be nothing more than a plague to society, Absol are powerful beasts that are far kinder to the human race on a regular basis than some would like to think.

On this path stood a figure wrapped in thick furs as protection against the cold. The figure was a man, and he stopped to look up toward the mountains in the distance and was surprised to see something else stamped against the darkened sky. There, illuminated by the moon rising over the crest of the highest summits, was a castle, dark and lonely where it stood sentinel in the foot hills.Really old stuff in Settings More Like This
