Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Introduces Wiglett, the Long Eel Cousin of Diglett

September 30, 2022 0 Comments
The Paldean region of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has added another unique creature to its ranks...
... Meet the Wiglett

Digletts are Ground Type Pokémon basically whack-a-moles with cute noses, and they were made even more memorable by their cries of “Diglett Dig” in the cartoon. It's cousin the Wiglett,  resembles a garden eel, a subset of the eel species that live underground and poke their heads out from under water. It debuted during a livestream in Japan, which verified that while it bears a striking resemblance to Diglett, it is different enough to be classified as a unique species and not a Paldean variant.


Wiglett is a long worm-like creature that rises from the ground. But unlike the Diglett it is not a Ground Type but Water Type.  It also has a pair of eyes and a nose similar to Diglett, one of the original 151 Pokémon that has already been shown in trailers for the new game.

The Wiglett becomes the 17th new Pokémon revealed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, including the Paldean variant of Pokémon Wooper from the second generation. New species introduced for the new game include LeChonk, the legendary Koraidon and Miraidon, and the newcomers Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.



Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the ninth main installment in the Pokémon franchise, which will introduce players to the new region of Paldea when it launches on 18 November 2022 exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

For collectors of Pokemon Plushies, this might interest you! Super adorable  sleeping plushies on comfortable beanies!


Each design is around 5-7cm by 9cm so they make a cute shelf decoration for any Pokémon enthusiast. And... the cushion even has a multi-purpose, you can use it to clean your phone screen (yes, you read that right!) as well as a nifty little arm rest when you are using your mouse to browse your computer.


You get to choose 6 adorable designs: Jirachi, Komala, Snorlax, Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Eevee. I actually got the Jirachi and Eevee for less than SGD$10 each, from Shopee. To be precise they were around SGD$8 which to me is a steal.


You'd be spoilt for choice. So get yours today!

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Get your Arceus and Darkrai

April 03, 2022 0 Comments

How to get Arceus in Pokemon BDSP


To find Arceus, you'll need to have a Pokémon Legends: Arceus save file on your Nintendo Switch system with all the main missions completed, and ensure your game is updated to Version 1.3.0. In addition to Arceus and Darkrai, the update introduced the Global Wonder Station, a facility in Jubilife City where you can engage in Wonder Trades with players around the world (finally!).

You'll also need to enter the Hall of Fame and obtain the National Pokédex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl

Once all the conditions have been met, return to your room in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl, where you can get the Azure Flute item. 

With the Azure Flute, go to the Spear Pillar at the top of Mount Coronet, and Arceus will reveal itself. Be ready to battle this powerful Pokémon!

HINT: Arceus will be Level 80 and since it's a normal-type Pokémon, it's weak to fighting-type attacks. Be careful though - you don't want Arceus to faint!


How to get Darkrai mystery gift in Pokemon BDSP


To encounter Darkrai, you'll need to have the Member Card, which will be distributed via Mystery Gift between April 1 and April 30. Once you've obtained the Member Card, travel to Newmoon Island, where you'll get a chance to capture Darkrai.

With the Member Card in hand, you'll first need to enter the Hall of Fame and obtain the National Pokedex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pear before you can encounter Darkrai. You will also need to have traveled to Fullmoon Island and encountered Cresselia.

The most important thing is to collect the Member card this month and when you meet the requirements later on (after April) you can meet and catch Darkrai anytime later.


Have you caught them all?

Pokemon for a Newbie

March 21, 2022 0 Comments

If you like to collect cute little critters, fight them occasionally to level them up and evolve them with a simple storyline like with no major plot twists like your daily soap drama, welcome to the world of Pokemon!

There are plenty of versions from Pokemon Go and Pokemon Unite on your mobile phone, to the Let’s Go (Eevee / Pickachu), Sword / Shield, Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl and the latest Legends of Arceus.


If you want to follow all the different regions and history, that’s cool but if you’re like me who knew nothing about Pokemon except Pickchu then all that matters when playing is having fun.

 There are 18 different types of Pokemon and each of them has its own individual strengths and weakness. And let’s not even go with the dual typing of Pokemon, and the hundreds of different variations there are. There are cute looking Pokemon and the not so cute looking ones. 

Check out this table below for the various types, along with their strengths and weaknesses.

If you are just starting out and not competitive or anything, there’s no real need to memorize or study the different types that or their strengths and weaknesses. You can learn along the way at your own pace. 

It’s a game targeted at kids primarily so it’s not that hard. Some of it can be common sense. For example, a Water Type Pokemon would have an advantage over Ground, Rock and Fire Types, and a Fire Type is strong against Bug, Grass, Ice  and Steel Types.

 

Objective

The main objective for Pokemon has always been to catch them all and completing the Pokedex, which is similar to an Encyclopedia or sorts, where some professor will be research for the betterment of the Pokemon World

Catching and fighting Pokemon helps to level up the Pokemon on your team (those which you catch use in the game). There are also boxes where you can keep your forgotten other Pokemon, which can be used for trades or alternated with your team throughout the game. There’s berry picking and cooking for your Pokemon too.

Once you are all done with catching Pokemon for your Pokedex, or even while you are taking a break from catching and training your team, you fight in game trainers to get badges and money to allow you to handle higher level Pokemon. 

You can also breed them to create your own nursery or be competitive and try to win every online battle with trainers around the world. You might even be lucky enough to find Shiny Pokemon (just a rare and different colored Pokemon). There’s a little piece of something for everyone so you won’t get bored playing.

Playing a Pokemon game on Nintendo Switch is non-stressing too, fights are turn-based so controls are simple (no continuously pressing multiple different buttons to get a particular move). Navigation is also was and you can always revisit an area to see if you’ve missed anything or discover some potions and moves lying around on the ground. Who doesn’t love freebies?

Speaking of freebies, in games like Sword / Shield and Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl, there is an Online Mystery Gift option where there will be occasional freebies like status, clothes or Pokemon. If you are thinking if you should try playing, I would say go for it and enjoy the ride. 

If you are afraid you might not like it, there is always the option of getting it physically second hand or selling the physical game cartridge away when you are done with it and no longer want to play.

Have you played a Pokemon game? 
If no, would you want to pick it up? 
If yes, which is your favorite Pokemon game?

Has Pokemon really lost its way, or it’s time to grow up and move on?

March 10, 2022 0 Comments

After receiving my very own copy of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, I was super excited and happy as well. For someone new to the Pokemon world and experience, the chibi characters add a cute little touch to it and gameplay is fuss free and straight forward enough.

I think it’s a pretty solid game for players new to the Pokemon-verse and want to try their hands at something which has been refreshed. Or those who simply want to go down nostalgia lane. For the those who have played it before and are complaining that it is lackluster, which as this review puts it – they are safe remakes (meaning nothing new or that exciting to appeal to those gamers looking for a totally new game).

But it seems that people will never be happy with what they have and are always comparing (and complaining) it with the older / earlier versions which were not made for the Nintendo Switch.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are remakes of the Pokemon series’ fourth generation games and the first mainline games in the franchise since 2018. Some reviewers say that the design and gameplay is underwhelming, but they have been players of the original makes since the beginning. So maybe these games are not meant for them?

Besides the current “older” experienced players who have been exposed to the games since they were kids, there is a vast number of players who have not yet encountered the Pokemon-verse or totally new to it and interested to play. That’s what being and staying relevant means, re-inventing the games on other platforms such as mobile (e.g. Pokemon Go), including micro-transactions for those who want to upgrade, can afford it and want it to reach more people and “stay alive”.

There are some good games which so-called “experienced” fans seem to love to hate or hate to love such as Pokemon Snap, but for the rest who are complaining about something not being worth their time… maybe it’s not meant for them who have already experienced it all? They should just spend their money elsewhere... just saying. 

With the expansion to so many platforms and the new games for Pokemon on the Nintendo Switch, such Legends: Arceus, there’s a game for everyone. The demographics are expanding, to a wider audience (non-pokemon players, kids, parents who played and want their kids to experience the fun, old and young alike etc,,,) who want to get into the Pokemon-verse and start the first adventure.

What’s wrong with your grandpa and random neighbors talking and playing Pokemon Go? It just means that it’s a success to get old people to play, and an accomplishment at that given how many of them are not tech-savvy and prefer non-techy hobbies. Shouldn’t it be an accomplishment to reach across all age groups and divides to unite (both young and old) people playing a common game such as Pokemon Go

If you think it’s too passe and downhill for Pokemon that it might lead to its demise, the fact that it can reach a vast demographic and be relevant to a large audience while generating income, then that's called evolving and trying to keep up with the times.
