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 […]

The Underground Star Scoop: XY85 – A Legendary Photo Op!
Salutations good PUCLonians and welcome to this week’s edition of The Underground Star Scoop! Apologies for the late recap.

The Splash: Talonflame
Greetings PUCL! With Summer League going strong, I have been examining team building and continually keep coming back to the one and only fiery bird… No, no, not Moltres the good one… That’s right, Talonflame, the Scorching Pokemon. Now if you have spent even a brief amount of time competitive battling chances are you have […]
Double Trouble: Fast Mode
Prepare for trouble and make it double, Puclonians! It is time for yet another installment of Double Trouble. Are your VGC format games, which are already much shorter than 6-on-6, taking longer than you would like? Maybe they can be shortened further. In playing Pokémon competitively, regardless of your preferred format and play style, it […]

Double Trouble: The VGC is Intimidating
Prepare for trouble, and make it double, Puclonians! In this week’s installment of Double Trouble, PUCL’s weekly series about the VGC format and double battles, I fear things could get… a little scary, and not because any haunting Ghost types are the subject. Rather, today’s topic is the intimidating… Intimidate ability! Intimidate, just a single […]
Double Trouble: Oh HAIL No!
Prepare for trouble and make it double, Puclonians! A very special holiday edition of Double Trouble, in fact! It’s Christmas Eve. The Winter Solstice was Sunday, and tomorrow is Christmas. And I personally have had very few Christmases with snow, growing up in the desert and now residing in super-sunny Southern California so I really […]
Today’s Topical Type is: Fire!
Hello, my dear PUCLonians! How are you all doing? Here in Nuvema Town, the days are getting shorter and chillier… I have to be careful when I step outside, so that I don’t get swept away by a gust of strong wind, or soaked by a heavy rain (which would solve the getting swept away […]
