Pokémon Player Uses 'Explosion' On Veteran Competitor, Leaving Him Speechless

GIF Pokémon Sun and Moon’s online Battle Spot ladder is full of wild teams. Since all games are best-of-one (unlike live tournaments, which are best-of-three), many players bring gimmicks to steal the win in unexpected ways. Even the best competitive player can be caught off guard, because they never know what to expect. Advertisement Take this episode of Aaron Zheng’s “Road to Ranked” YouTube series. As one of the game’s most veteran and most-decorated players, he’s seen a lot of crazy stuff and knows what to look for. But in the first match of the game, with his Snorlax poised to sweep the rest of his opponent’s team, Zheng got a surprise (skip to around the 9:30 mark if you don’t have 25 minutes to spare!) On the second to last turn of the game, Porygon2 goes for Protect, a move it is almost never seen using. Zheng immediately recognized it as a weird move, but the gravity of the situation didn’t hit him until the opposing Choice Banded Gigalith went for Explosion. At that point, his mouth hung open, speechless. Zheng knew that might cost him the game. The READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Competitive Pokémon Player Brings Good Luck Pineapple To Tournament, Takes First Place

When it comes to competitive Pokémon, many players have good luck charms. A lot of the time, that means tournament tables are crowded with plushies. But for Ashton Cox, as he won the first Latin American International Championship last weekend, it was a pineapple. Cox tweeted that the day before the tournament in what has become a matter of prescience. While he has yet to explain the full story, luck did seem to be on his side last weekend. Armed with a Tapu Lele, Pheromosa, Torkoal, Lilligant, Mimikyu and Snorlax, Cox gave it his all with a pineapple by his side. Advertisement Advertisement He started off well, not dropping a single best-of-three set until the fourth round. Then he continued winning, until he was fighting for a chance to continue onto the second day of competition. His final opponent for the day was Gavin Michaels, a California player who earlier this year swept both of his home-state’s regionals with virtually the same team. The set was well played by both players, demonstrating that regardless of luck, Cox’s skill carried him to that point. While it’s impossible to say Cox wouldn’t have still won without his pineapple’s interference, it did seem…

Fire Emblem Echoes Shows How The Original Game Art Has Changed

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a remake of 1992 title Fire Emblem Gaiden. Let’s see how the new 3DS version compares to the Famicom one.  Advertisement The original game, the second in the Fire Emblem series, never got an international release. Below are comparisons via Japanese website Fire Emblem Echoes Matome: Slightly less blue and green hair, it seems! Fewer lantern jaws, too. However, the updated art does keep distinctive features of the characters but in a contemporary fashion. It’s interesting to note the big—and subtle—differences. Advertisement Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia was released on April 20 in Japan as Fire Emblem Echoes: Mou Hitori no Eiyuu Ou, which translates as Fire Emblem Echoes: Another Hero King). The game has a different subtitle for its upcoming North American and European release on May 19.
