My Pokemon Moon Team!
The time has come, once again, to be hailed as the new Pokemon Champion! I’ve wandered the Alola Islands, I’ve battled the chiefs and kahunas. I’ve conquered the moon. And now the moment is here to beat another Pokemon game!
To mark the occasion — and tease an upcoming List of Six — I’ve decided to share my pokemon squad! This is the team I’m taking to the top of the mountain in Pokemon Moon: Incineroar, Galisopod, Palossand, Mimikyu, Crabominable and Lunala!
It’s a pretty good team, if I do say so myself. Usually when it comes to Pokemon games, I pick my team out ahead of time, based on the monsters that get announced and spoiled. I never shy away from Pokemon monster spoilers. But this adventure had some surprises.
I went with Litten as a starter, because it was the coolest one, even though I didn’t care for Incineroar. But the big fire cat wrestler has grown on me in combat. I picked Mimikyu because it’s obviously amazing and adorable. Galisopod was another Pokemon I chose in advance, because it’s just plain awesome-looking. It starts out as one of those trilobites, which looks like a wimp, only to evolve into that monsters samurai tank bug you see up there. That guy was a no-brainer. And I always go with the box art legendary, so Lunala was a definite teamster. I also like bats.
Palossand was on my list of Pokemon to try, because I love the weird ones. I may be one of the only Garbador fans in existence, and the idea of making a haunted sandcastle pokemon definitely spoke to me. The biggest surprise is Crabominable. I had no intention of going with Crabrawler when I first saw the dude ahead of the game, but at the time I caught him, having a solid fighting pokemon sounded like a good idea, with added water elements. That guy just kind of stuck around with no solid replacements, and his evolution is just plain neat — even though he can only evolve at the very, very, very end of the game, which is a complaint I’ll talk about later.
So yeah, I’m loving Pokemon Moon and I’m even considering a second play through, which I rarely do. This has been a really cool game. I’m planning a List of Six/Review for next week, so stay tuned!
