The Fluff: Themed Teams, Take Three (And Four)

Hello, my dear PUCLonians, and welcome once again to The Fluff! The UUTC retrospective will have to wait once more, as I am still in that (and a hearty “what?” was had by all, except maybe Scron and The British Gent, who believe in the unbelievable). But last month ItzTurtlez was a total champ and […]

Double Trouble: Palkia – The New Dialga

Prepare for Trouble, and make it a (VGC) 2016 Double, PUCL! It is time for the first installment of Double Trouble of the year!

Double Trouble: Mythical Musings

Prepare for Trouble, and make it Double, Puclonians! Double Trouble, et cetera. In the VGC, all Pokémon that can only be obtained through events – never through regular game play – are banned.

In the Meta: Abomasnow

Happy Holidays to all my dear Puclonians! It must have been pure serendipity that my article posting day landed on December 25th! So, as I pound into the night on my forge known as a keyboard in order to spread competitive cheer, I wish you all a merry Christmas / Kwanzaa / Hanukkah / Festivus […]

In the Meta: Slowking

In the wake of the Korean Pokemon site’s flop at revealing the next two mega-evolutions in Slowbro and Audino, I was astonished to find that Slowbro’s mentally superior cousin was neglected an ascended form where its shell encapsulates its entire body. To show our dear friend Slowking that people still care about it, I decided […]
