Pokemon of the Week #33 – Flygon

pokemon-flygon

Welcome PUCL, today we investigate one of the rarest sights in all of Pokemon, a Hoenn native that is not a Water type, Flygon! I know on the podcast Thatch mentioned that he couldn’t see why Flygon got so much love when it doesn’t quite measure up to its Dragon type brothers, but he also somehow […]

Pokemon of the Week #32 – Infernape

In the blue corner we have the leader of PUCL, his thumbs are strong from years of controlling his bike around the battle resort, its THATCH! And in the red corner, we have the fiery menace from Sinnoh, his fists hardened in the forges of the very earth under Stark Mountain, Infernape. I will spare you the […]

Hello PUCL, is anyone else feeling particularly chilly today? The weather report said there was a Snow Warning but with a chance of a Pokemon taking the world by storm (it actually turned out to be true here in Canada because it snowed yesterday). That’s right it is Alolan Ninetales! This Pokemon is cold as ice […]

This just in PUCLonians, breaking news informs us that the Ultra Beast Buzzwole does not learn the move Fire Punch. Coincidentally, Buzzwole is also our Pokemon of the Week and I think it is past due we got a chance analyze one of our other-worldy Ultra Beast friends. Buzzwole is famous from his promotional material […]

Its off to the races this week PUCL as we take a look at the fiery Rapidash. Rapidash is most well known for its appearance in the 33rd episode of the anime, “The Flame Pokemon-athon”, which is a surprisingly catchy episode title. This episode contains a menagerie of Pokemon you would think of as racers, such […]

Pokemon of the Week #28 – Nidoking

Here ye, here ye PUCL, here comes the Nidoking. On this Pokemon of the Week we are taking a look at a favourite of Thatch’s, Nidoking. When I was a child, I thought Nidoking was the coolest looking Pokemon in Generation 1, and years later I still think it has a great design. The design […]

Hello PUCL it is SumtimesIFly, back with another Pokemon of the Week. This week we have what perhaps should be a mascot of the Pokemon Underground Champions League, Dugtrio. Dugtrio has been a Pokemon icon since the first generation, spawning countless memes and even finding a home in the competitive scene. In generation 7 Dugtrio is refreshed […]

pokemon-toxapex-attack

Hello and welcome to the PUCL aquarium. I will be your guide, SumtimesIFly, as today we look at a rare specimen from the Alolan region, Toxapex. Toxapex resemble starfish, but unlike the beautiful Staryu and Starmie, this invertebrate is known for its vicious demeanor. You may remember a few weeks ago Scron was the Pokemon […]

pokemon-quagsire-smile

Greetings PUCL fans! I don’t know about the majority of our members but I have been wrapped up in Pokemon Go since the new update, and I have definitely been seeing a lot of this happy, little, fellow. Quagsire! Quagsire has always had my vote for the happiest Pokemon which is quite an impressive title […]

Pokemon of the Week #24 – Lurantis

pokemon-lurantis-spin

Hello underground champions! This week we have an undercover Pokemon. A praying mantis pretending to be a flower…no wait we have to go deeper, a flower pretending to be a praying mantis. Lurantis is one of my favourite new Grass types from Sun and Moon because of how much I enjoyed using it during my […]
