Image Keldeo's now available for all those interested. Check out the local Gamestop to find it. I believe via Mystery Shop.

Picked up Keldeo today. Sad that like all other event Pokemon it has an OT that isn't yours...interesting thing is that the GameStop I picked it up at had a small Keldeo poster. It's not bad, but I'm not sure if all GameStops have it.

So we're still missing a lot of events from Japan. I don't just mean Genesect, but the Milos Island Tornadus and Thundurus

Anyone think we'll get this? I personally hope so because apparently in B/W 2, the Kami Trio is completely absent unless an event brings them in, and I do not have Thundurus nor any other way of getting this.

Image Well, there's always the 3DS's Pokémon Dream Radar if you want the Kami Trio. All three are obtainable and transferable there.

And correct me if I'm wrong about this, but isn't this currently the only method of getting their Therian Forme?

That is the case, kinda. You get a mirror (forget the exact name) that allows you to turn them into their Therian forms. From what I see this works on any Thundurus, Tornadus or Landorus from B/W 1. Still, for non-3DS owners, we should get some other way >__>

Give me the money and then I'll embrace this.

Image By the by, with just over 30 days left until the English launch of the sequels...

I thought we could do a little something together! Perhaps some of you are familiar with what has been known as the 30-Day Pokémon Challenge? Every day, you'll answer a simple question, mostly consisting of "favourite/least favourite" types. Figured it'd be a nice wait to count down the days.

Anyway, let's start off with Day 1...


Day 1: What is your favourite Pokémon?

Image <-- Arrow points to the obvious answer for me. I'd say it's no coincidence that this was the form I took...

I mean...it was the very reason I chose the Blue version over Red, even though red is my favourite colour. Heck, Meowth is the very reason I was into the franchise in the first place! That's pretty big!

Now then...what's yours?

Oddish has kind of warmed its way into my heart. The pokemon RP certainly made it more of a favorite, but its always stuck out to me for some reason and I'm not quite sure why.

The entire Eevee family. Specifically Espeon and Umbreon, but if you want to be more specific than that, I'll concede that I like Espeon a tiny bit more.

I initially had Metagross as my favorite Pokémon, but right now...it's really hard to choose. There's just so many that catch my interest, such as Salamence, the coolest dragon I've ever seen, Golurk, a giant golem robot, Tyranitar, a t-rex made of stone, Blaziken, a kung-fu fighting chicken...

I guess you could say my favorites are, for the most part, those that have lots of offensive power and are good for competitive battles, though I don't just focus on their stats and such. I also love how they're designed and how awesome they are overall.

Much to the surprise of everyone, I'm sure, it's ELEKID. Because he's simple, yet cool, and electric and awesome and ANGRY EYES and giant plug on head and aaaaaa

Besides, Egoraptor (the guy who makes the ____ Awesome videos and half of GameGrumps) recently said it was his favorite Pokemon too and THAT MEANS IT IS A TRUE FACT, CLEARLY.

I can't decide between these 2.

Lilligant - Pretty much the reason I got back into Pokemon. I had gotten Pokedex 3D and decided use it because I didn't have anything else to use my 3DS on. Then Lilligant shows up and it pretty much makes want to get back into the series. Prior to Pokedex 3D I lost interest in the series since Stadium 2 for some reason.

Mienfoo - I caught Mienfoo when I was deciding on a Pokemon that would have an advantage againts Brycen. I didn't really like Throh, I didn't know how to catch Sawk, I didn't really want to use Scraggy, and I switched out my Conkeldurr a while back and didn't want to use it. I had a look around Icirrus and caught Mienfoo and really like the design, it was a Fighting type so it'd be useful right away, it came with Drain Punch and Regenerator. It also kicks butt when playing by Little Cup rules.

Meanwhile Xatu, Flygon, Sanslash, and Chandelure are pretty much tied for my second favorites.

Image I love how unique all these answers are. Cool stuff!

But before we move on to Day 2...lessee here...

New WiFi event coming up to coincide with the launch of B2/W2. Much like how Victini was available right away on WiFi, players will be able to download Genesect from October 7th - November 12th.

Day 2: Least Favourite Pokémon
Image This question was...quite a bit harder...

I thought about it long and hard and decided...

Luvdisc

I mean, really, it's just useless in pretty much every sense. There's really nothing compelling about it. Oo, it's shaped like a heart! Yeah, exciting... No good evolutions, just a big fat novelty.

...Seriously, that's the best I can do. This was a hard question.

RAICHUUUUU no I can't say that with a straight face, while I may like Elekid more, I still love Raichu. ):

I don't even know what my least favorite Pokemon is, though. I used to hate Bidoof, but then I got over that, so I dunno.

Swellow, sure, why not. I don't care for the starting bird lines and it's the weakest of the bunch.

Forgot to add my favorite Pokemon.
Used to be Gliscor, actually. I like its design and it always saves my butt in competitive play, and simply put, it's a really cool Pokemon. I say used to since I'm caught between others like Arcanine since I love dogs, orange, and I always use it in game while competitively it doesn't let down, Garchomp because it is just plain awesome all around, Sceptile because it proved Grass types are great and its design is cool and stuff and for a starter I grew really attached to it despite not playing R/S/E till recently, and Vaporeon, which I think is absolutely adorable and also use in game a few times as well as competitively to the point of where I used it in a tournament and won due to it. I would go with Arcanine honestly, probably due to my love of dogs, the design and fact that it is awesome competitively. That and GARY OAK has one and highly respects it. That alone is enough. And don't worry B-Man, I think cats are ok.

Least favorite. Miltank. This thing was the worst !#%$ a Gym Leader could ever have in the old games. It. just. doesn't. die. And whenever I use it, it does nothing. In game it fails to k.o. things by the tiniest of smidgens, and competitively it gets haxed. Ok that sounds lame, so let me continue a bit. I just don't like it. It's not that interesting or cool of a Pokemon, it's kind of lame tbh. But there's also Meganium which I always hated with a passion. Like Miltank, it looks lame, but it was honestly part of, if not, why people hated Grass types. It just doesn't get the job done ever. That, and when I went through Victory Road for the first time, I had only my Feraligatr left and Silver comes out of nowhere, sending it first. When he's supposed to send out a Golbat. I was the saddest panda for the longest time. Really both of these things are just really lame, not that interesting and they've pissed me off in some way or form.

I'd say probably Mudkip, for the old meme sort of ruined it.

I looking through a list of pokemon its hard to pick a least favorite. There are a few that feel uninspired but other than that, nothing really sticks out.

Happpiny, there is literally no reason for this thing to exist. For one, Chansey didn't really need a pre-evolution 3 generations after it was introduced, and certainly not one this bad. Secondly, it doesn't even learn a good exclusive move like some other Baby Pokemon.
