Pokemon Ranger Games Part 2

OMIGOSH I AM SO SORRY THAT I HAVEN"T POSTED IN FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I've been incredibly busy slacking.  Yep I'm Lazy but here's the post that I owed you guys.
The first pokemon ranger game is based in a new region called Fiore. Fiore is a unique region where people are encouraged to keep their pokemon out of pokeballs, like Ash's pikachu.  People and pokemon have a unique relationship, and there are no trainers. 
Fiore Region
In this game, you battle the Go Rock Squad with captured pokemon.  They are led by the Go Rock Quads. The Go Rock Quad's apparently a rock band, but they seem like really old, though in this picture they seem in their 30's.  It's hard to tell with there sprites due to their white hair.  Anyway they are siblings and they have really epic music.  It's pretty awesome.  Video below.  If there isn't I will cry. =(  But yeah.  The Go Rock Squad are the bad guys, and you run into the Go Rock Quad's a lot, Just like Team Plasma in Black and White. (Or anyonther evil pokemon team people.)

Honestly, this game is a classic, ranger wise. It's really fun, and insanly addicting. something about drawing circles about pokemon.... But yeah!  I will try to post soon!

SHINEZ!!!!!!!!!

OK!  So Amazing story before I start.  SO! I was playing black in math (free time!)  And I was in twist mountain, which i hate.  SO I was just walking along, when i run into a pokemon.  I was all -____-  but then, this appeared.--------------------------->
That's right! A shiny boldore, Swear on my life.  SO, I obviously had to catch it!  So, I used surf.  Boldore's special ability is sturdy, meaning it has no 1 hit kills!  So, I threw a great ball... one... two.... three.... CLICK!  HAHA! I still can't believe I have one!  I don't even like rock types!

OK.  Onto shiny pokemon.  Alright, so catching a shiny pokemon is a super rare thing.  In generation II, (no shinys in gen 1) the chance of getting a shiny pokemon is 1/8192!  Though If you breed the shiny pokemon properly, the chance of that pokemon having a shiny is 1/64!  In generation two, it was all based on Individual Values <--Link.  I don't quite understand, but I believe that if the pokemon has 10 or higher values on all the stats,  It's a shiny.  I'm not sure though... -_-
In Gen. III, IV, and V, The determinant for Shininess is instead a calculation based on the Trainer ID number and secret ID number of the player encountering it and the personality value of the Pokémon. (THANK YOU BULBAPEDIA!)  So basically a heck of a lot of things.  But, the chances are still the same as in Generation II, only a 1/8192 chance of catching a shiny.  Though, if you have heart gold/ soul silver/ crystal, you have a 100% chance of encountering a shiny at least once at the lake of rage.  You can capture a red gyarados... I killed it -_______-
Ok, if you want more info on shinys, click the image below.
Alright, I promise the next Ranger part will be out soon!

Pokemon Ranger Games Pt. 1

Ok, I'm going to try for once a week, but homecomings this week, anything can happen.  So this post is in parts, basically, I want to do a description on each game, since these are my favorites =)
Pokemon Ranger is probably one of the more unique pokemon games.  You take the role of a pokemon ranger, and capture pokemon with your capture styler. You don't know what any of those are, but guess what? If you click them, it links you to bulbapedia... YEAHHH!!!!!  SO, pokemon rangers are basically the pokemon police.  While the Officer Jennys take care of real criminals, pokemon rangers take care of pokemon theifs, like pokemon hunter j, or team rocket.
Pokemon Rangers do these cool things called captures.  What it is, in a nutshell, is you draw circles around a pokemon, the circles hold your feelings of friendship, and when you fill a little bar, YOUR FRIENDS!!!!!!!  YEAH!  Ok, so that sounds incredibly corney, but in the anime it looks awesome. (I now gesture towards the video below!)

I will check that video to make sure it has what i want, ANYWAY! here's a game capture.
And with the pokemon you capture, they can help you capture other pokemon.  It sounds stupid, but its INCREDIBLY ADDICTING.  Something about drawing circles super duper fast, makes it fun!  But Yeah, this will probably be a 4 part segment so i can describe each game.  See you guys soon!

Pokemon Guide Books, And Other Information

Ok, I'll get the information over with, and then get on with the post.  Ok first off, Pokemon of the week will be canceled until further notice.  I just don't have enough time, and I'm just kinda lazy....  ANYWAY also, I'm going to be posting shorter post, they may be all in one, or in many parts.  It depends on the day, and homework, and my sleep level.  For example, I have no sleep, so this will probably be short and sweet. ONTO THE POST!
Ok, so I WANTED pokemon park, pikachu's adventure.. BUT i got a heart gold guide book instead...  I've been meaning to post this since FOREVER!  Ok, so basically, pokemon guide books tell you everything you need to know about the pokemon game, and give you awesome strategy's!  They also give you a complete pokedex, a poster (usually) and everything about the pokemon gyms!    Basically, they're an amazing resource.  They make the game so much eaiser, but some people consider it cheating, which it CAN be... depends on your morals, and what you consider cheating,,, but besides that,  They're amazing, and I really appreciate them.  YOu can get pokemon guide books at any video game store.  I recommend game stop personally.  They usually cost about $20.  Alright, thats about how long these posts will be. BYE!

Most Serious Post Ever On This Blog


OK, So I know everyone knows that today is the 10th anniversary of the twin tower terrorist attacks.  I know realized that I don't remember anything that happened.  Only things that I've been told.  I was only 4.  I was living in New Jersey at the time, so I'm pretty sure I was taken out of Preschool, because we we lived pretty close to NY.  My dad was a volunteer firefighter... but I'm not sure if he went to NY or if he stayed at home.  We lived in the middle of NJ...  But I'm not quite sure...  I seriously don't remember anything from Preschool, relating to 9/11.  I do know that my Grandma was in Italy at the time.  But she's safe and sound.  She's actually at my house right now.  But more on that later.  I promise a real post incredibly soon.

Pokeathlon For Dummies

Hey Guys.  So I've been sick of trying to catch entei in heart gold.  SO, I've been playing in the pokeathlon.  Good post idea hunh, so here's my spheal.
 Pokeathlon is the replacement of contests and musicals in heart gold/ soul silver.  Basically, It is a bunch of mini games that you play, trying to win a badge.  There are 5 different courses: Skill, Speed, Stamina, Jump, and Power.  Each pokemon has it's own strengths and weaknesses in each course, Which are represented by stars in their summary.
These Are Starly's Pokeathlon Stats
A way to increase your pokemon's stats is by buying or making apricorn juice.  Apricorns are special berry like things that can be picked once a day, and can be made into pokeballs or apricorn juice.  To buy apricorn juice, you need to buy it from a woman near the pokeathlon dome.
Home Made Apricorn Juice
Alright.  There Are many other tips and secrets to pokeatlon, but I'll let you guys to figure out yourself, or on bulbapedia, which is the next post, AFTER pokemon of the week, which is Ditto =D
This Has Been Pokeatlon
FOREVER!

I SWEAR!!!  I just wanted to say thank you. from the bottom of my heart.  I couldn't have gotten to over 2,000 page views without you!  I especially want to thank Phoebe and Alex Yally for just being there for me.  Also Frozen, for introducing me to blogging.  I've been blogging for nearly six months now, and I don't think I could ever stop!  When I started this at 2am on a cold febuary morning, I never thought I would get this far.  I though I would post a couple times, get bored, and leave the site in the dust.  Now I can proudly say, I have a little over 50 posts, 7 followers, and over 400 page views a week!  I can promise you that this blog will only go up from here, and probably won't stop for a long long time.  I've been looking at other Pokemon based blogs, and have gotten ideas on how to improve this blog! If you have any ideas, PLEASE leave a comment below.  You can comment anonymously or with e-mail. Thank you all so much!  I love you guys =) I mean it sincerely and without a doubt!

Flipnote Hatena

Hey guys.  So this post is about the flipnote hatena.  If you don't already know what flipnote is, it's an app you download on your dsi.  If you don't know how to download apps on your dsi, heres a tutorial.
If you have slow internet, what you do is you go to dsi shop, wait for it to load, get a software update if you need it, and then when you get in, you tap dsi wares.  then go to free.  then you should see mario and friends putting blue blobs into a box. once the box fills, you will be redirected to the homepage.  you will see a box. tap the box, and you should see the flipnote app. =)  it'll be an orange frog. 
SO anyway, Flipnote is basically a drawing app.  you pretty much draw whatever the heck you want.  Your drawing could be as simple as this:
To as complicated as this:
 The possibilities are endless!  So onto the hatena.  Flipnote hatena is a place where you can share your flipnote movies and/or drawings.  (I forgot to mention ealier, you can make movies on flipnote, with sound and stuff, but it's pretty complicated.)
The reason why this is on pokeblog is because there is actually a bunch of flipnotes about pokemon.  Some even become the most popular flipnotes.  For example:
Hahahaahaaaaaaa thats my favorite one ever! xD  So, as you can see, pokemon is a very big thing on flipnote hatena.  <Link  I highly reccomend this app.
