Pokemon Analysis: The Pidove Line!


From pigeons to quills to peacocks… the identity crisis Pokemon!

Last time, we covered the Lotad line, one of the more unique Pokemon species out there. This time though the RNG decided to give us a far more ‘normal’ species as far as Pokemon go in the Pidove line! This doesn’t mean, however, that there’s nothing interesting about 5th gen’s staple starting bird line by any means. There’s some details that set this Normal/Flying line apart from its brethren.

Downtime Updates

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

A brief post here! Some of you may have noticed, if you looked up from your 3DS and copy of Pokemon X or Y (or both), that Wynaut? had some issues over the weekend. The exciting version of the explanation is that Wyatt, our mascot, had to defend the site from rival Wynaut armed with pirate gear and pointy sticks. The boring and unfortunately real reason is the server had some hardware problems, and there were some DNS (domain name system) propagation issues afterwards which is why for some people it took a couple days to get back up. (I told you it was the more boring version).

But it’s back up for now! This does mean the next article will be a bit later than usual, but it’ll be out by this weekend or thereabouts, depending on the part of the world you are in. There’ll also be a bit more potential downtime around the 21st, but that’s stuff we’re expecting that basically means newer and shinier and faster servers. Keep an eye out, and we’ll try to keep the mostly-weekly updates continuing!

Pokémon Places – Lost in Viridian Forest

Sunday, October 6th, 2013

Let’s talk of the place where the golden era of Pokémon started – Kanto. You’ve been to Viridian City and Pewter City, I suppose? Then you’ll know exactly how annoying Viridian Forest could get had you not trained your Pokémon. Have you perhaps tried to go back there… to get a Pikachu to beat Misty? Let’s rush back to Viridian City… oh the horror, we can’t go back into Mt. Moon again, that ledge is blocking your way! Anyway, let’s look deep into the world of the Very Damned Forest. Did I get that wrong? Fine, Viridian Forest.
