Things I Like: Pokemon Stadium 2 (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

While at first it looks like the original Melee stage, this one came out in Brawl and has stayed for Ultimate. It’s got more tricks than the original stage. Which means the stage transforms into more different elemental types. Mainly ones that became more well known in the Silver/Gold games. I think the windmill isContinue reading “Things I Like: Pokemon Stadium 2 (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Hate: Pokemon Trainer (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

I believed I liked this pokemon master in Brawl, but when he shows back up after all these years (only Charizard made it to Smash 4) I wasn’t too impressed. He’s the only character to not really be a fighter. He just stands in the background. You can also choose the pokemon trainer to beContinue reading “Things I Hate: Pokemon Trainer (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Lt. Surge (Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee)

Lt. Surge is the third gym leader in Kanto, and I enjoyed seeing him in this 3D adventure. His gym is still the same. His electric gate and trash cans look even stranger in colorful 3D graphics.

Things I Like: Misty (Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee)

Like the original Blue/Red games, Misty is the gym leader here for the 2nd gym. I didn’t know until much later than 1998, that Misty was her name in English. In Japan, her name is Kasumi which translates as “mist” in English. I guess I will forgive them for that one. It’s also a punContinue reading “Things I Like: Misty (Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee)”

Things I Like: Brock (Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee)

It was great for nostaglia seeing Brock in full 3D with the original battle and gym not in black and white with primitive 2D graphics. He looks a lot more like he did in the anime here. But since the game is a remake for the most part, the gym is about the same. HeContinue reading “Things I Like: Brock (Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee)”
