Hello Everyone and welcome back to another edition of Anything Goes! Pokemon Sun and Moon (SuMo) has brought us several new Pokemon to fill out Pokedex, as well as new insight to some of our favorites! In this article, I am going to share some of my favorites! With out any further ado, let’s get started.

Oricorio Sensu

Moon – It summons the dead with its dreamy dancing. From their malice, it draws power with which to curse its enemies.

… Uh…

Well, that’s one way to start an article.  IT SUMMONS THE DEAD!? This Pokemon resurrects the dead to the attack its opponent. I don’t know what else to say about that except that it is messed up!

Mareanie/Toxapex

Mareanie Toxapex

Mareanie Moon – It’s found crawling on beaches and seafloors. The coral that grows on Corsola’s head is as good as a five-star banquet to this Pokémon.

Toxapex Sun – Toxapex crawls along the ocean floor on its 12 legs. It leaves a trail of Corsola bits scattered in its wake.

This pair of entries is really interesting. They both specifically talk about how these Pokemon feast upon Corsola. I know there has been in game lore about some Pokemon eating others, but they have never been this… descriptive. Also, in the games, if you find a Corsola and it makes an SOS call, a Mareanie shows up and starts attacking the Corsola! And sadly, when I come across this in the game, I will exclusively use a Corsola to lure in a Mareanie… Sorry Corsola.

As a side note, Toxapex is the inspiration to a new product advertised on PUCL called Toxapepsi. You can find it advertised on this episode of PUCL Game Corner!

Moon – Despite what its appearance suggests, it cares for others. If it finds vulnerable, weak Pokémon, it protectively brings them into its water bubble.

Well, that’s really sweet! This Pokemon looks scary but really its just a big soft and just wants to make sure everything is safe, protecting hurt Pokemon in its bubble… Hey, wait a minute…

Sun – It delivers headbutts with the water bubble on its head. Small Pokémon get sucked into the bubble, where they drown.

So, taking those two entries together, it tries to help vulnerable Pokemon, but if it isn’t a water type, I would assume it drowns the Pokemon it is trying nurture… Sad.

Turtonator

Moon – It gushes fire and poisonous gases from its nostrils. Its dung is an explosive substance and can be put to various uses.

So, when I read this entry, my mind totally went to the classic prank of a flaming bag of canine dung on someone’s door step, but now brought to the next level. When someone goes to stomp it out, it would react like an IED in a war zone. Yeah, you really need to be responsible to own a Pokemon.

Primeape

Primeape

Sun – It has been known to become so angry that it dies as a result. Its face looks peaceful in death, however.

One of my favorites from Generation I, this Pokemon is an interesting one to play with, especially when referencing the anime. This Pokemon has been known to have a temper, but I never knew it was this severe. It gets so angry that it DIES! But it looks peaceful after that, so I guess that’s ok…

Alakzam/Mega Alakazam

Alakazam Sun – It is said to have an IQ of approximately 5,000. Its overflowing psychokinetic powers cause headaches to anyone nearby.

Mega Alakazam Moon – Its hidden psychic power has been unleashed. A glance at someone gives it knowledge of the course of that person’s life, from birth to death.

To finish with my favorite, I have some great Pokedex entries. Now, I know there are some pretty grim entries regarding Mega Evolution in these games, but the ones here are a bit tamer. First, regular Alakazam thinks so much thinks so much it gives other people headaches! And Mega Alakazam has such strong psychic abilities, it is basically omniscient! It can glance at someone and know everything about it. Taking this to the next step, think about what it could do with its psychic abilities and turn that knowledge on it’s opponent. Such fun entries.

Well, dear reader, thank you for taking the time to read this. What are your favorite Pokedex entries of SuMo (or any game)? Please share them in the comments below.

Until next time…
