As I search *tympole*, let's take a moment to look at team plasma. Anyone whose grown up with the series knows team rocket. Over the years, there have been *pidove* others, like team magma and team aqua, that have been the blatant antagonist. The criminal element in a world where being 10 is a legal adult. *pidove* Team plasma is different. Imagine team rocket with a hostile takeover *audino (holy crap, 1331 exp. points for this guy!)* by P.E.T.A. They want to liberate pokemon from their life of battle and being poked with sharp sticks by children journeying all over the world. And they are the bad guys? Nice one Nintendo, *holy holy sweet fuck a throh* way to address the one thing sticking out for generations and making us feel like *it broke free* heartless animal abusers in one swoop. *it broke free again* In one hand, I applaud them for introducing an alternate line of thinking than "Pokemon battle for us and they love it."
On the other, they all seriously look like crusaders. This takes all seriousness away and replaces it with a swift urge to steroid abuse a set of Pokemon and grind them into dust. *it broke out again* So that's the plan, where steroids reads as rare candies and all guilt is cast aside. That and they kicked munna. They all need to die now.

As I type this, the battle to catch throh is still going on. It's broken free four times now and I'm down to 57 pokeballs. I can do this all night buddy, come on. I guess I should have brought some pokemon that at least know yawn or something. Any sort of a stat changer would have ended this by now.

One shake, two shake, three shake *click*...
Throh has been caught. I can move on now. Forest and team plasma, here we come.

The gym has been conquered, new Pokemon are had, old ones evolved, and new routes have opened. That being said, I'm still standing here outside pinwheel forest looking for a throh. It's supposed to have a 10% chance of showing up. That's not too rare. I've been here for two hours wandering through tall grass looking for this one Pokemon. Oh, and I hate tympole. The little bugger does nothing but cause confusion and it seems that when confused, all of my Pokemon would rather smack themselves.

Let's get all the new ones out of the way. First, oshawatt has evolved into a dewott, pidove is now tranquill, and thanks to some shaking grass, I have a pansage. The standard setup is in the beginning you choose between a fire, water, and a grass type for a starter. This one switches it up by not only making you weak against the first gym no matter your starter, but also introduces a secondary set of elemental monkeys. I thought you could only get one as a gift early in the game. I was apparently wrong. You can imagine my surprise when one popped out. New captures include blitzle, timburr, tympole, and sewaddle. I'm about to chase team plasma into the forest. I'm still playing as I write and the only thing going through my head is "if I find a throh now, all the grump above will be pointless." There are a lot of new ones to grab in the forest along with a type exclusive trade. Most of these are just going to sit in my pc for a while, until I get to a power levelling place. All this and I still have to trade the starters. I should get on that, it's easy numbers. I don't have to move the monkeys over any more, which is good, but now I have to find them in shaking grass, and then it's a 10% chance on each kind of monkey. Oof.
