I've been busy these past few weeks. We've had the carpets removed in the house, which meant we had to move absolutely everything two rooms at a time. And when we got to my room... "When did I get all this stuff?!"
We have hardwood floor, which mom says will reduce the amount of dust in the house. Of course, it got everywhere when the carpets got removed, which got all of us a bit sick.
And one day I sold a bunch of movies at a store out of town that buys old books and movies and got back a bunch of money. Something caught my eye when I was there: Pokemon Emerald. And since I'm trying to complete the National Pokedex before the release of Gen 6, and I need the legendaries from this game, I got the game.
Which means after eight years, my passport to Hoenn came through.
Good thing I wasn't waiting on a kidney, eh?
I caught all the legendaries there as well, and now I'm inspired to make them Sailor girls. Oh, and I LOVE the Gym Leader battle theme!
And recently, I got Deoxys, so I've got another Sailor girl to create as well, and in all its forms.
All is right with the world!
And in other news, a few months back, I cleared every single event in the Pokemon World Tournament in White 2! Do you have any idea how frickin' hard the Champions cup is?? Here's an idea:
Your opponents are superior to you in every possible way. They're stronger, faster, tougher, and smarter than you. They have perfect IVs and EVs. For those not into the metagame, this means their stats are at their highest value at Level 50, with every single point aimed to kick your ass HARD! Trying to take them on is like showing up to a gunfight with a knife. Blindfolded. The deck is stacked against you in every way it can be . It will kick you in the throat, and destroy your cell phone to prevent you from calling the ambulance. It will make you cry.
But after seven consecutive battles, I emerged victorious, with one Pokemon left and with one HP. I got a medal proving my victory, four battle points, and my Trainer Card changed to silver.
There is no greater satisfaction in the Pokemon games than challenging the hardest of the hard, and taking them down. And when the dust clears and you get those BP, and the medal, you know it was worth it because YOU DIDN'T GIVE UP! That medal is shown when people observe my Trainer card.
