Just doing an update on the pokemon front, and really on the blog front in general. I had this huge plan to at least update this thing fairly regularly this year and I have only been marginally successful at it. That's alright, I've had a lot of stuff going on, life has kind of been kicking my ass.

That said, my amazing friend Feidhlim sent me a shiny Heracross that he hatched in Pokemon Silver (I think? It might have been gold but it was one of those two) and so I have an all shiny bug team now.

The good news is I'm totally stoked about it and in the process of leveling them all up right now. Every one of them is >50 at the moment, and Larvesta still hasn't evolved yet, but we're getting there slowly but surely. Larvesta is infamous, after all, for evolving stupid late.

The bad news is no one in the entire world is going to believe this team isn't hacked. I mean I know if I ended up in a battle with these pokemon, I would think they were hacked. They aren't, I spent a stupid amount of time chaining for them, but that's alright, they don't have to believe me. The fact that some of them are suboptimal is in my favor, if I were going to cheat they'd have perfect natures and IVs too.

Anyway, I'm working on my Fairy team next but I haven't decided what all is going into it. I don't have UltraMoon yet, either, I was avoiding buying it because my birthday was late last month and it's bad form to buy things to yourself close to your birthday. That said, when you're 28 people don't gift you toys anymore. I am officially old.

That said I'm happy to be taking a break from all this chaining to train up my bug team and decide which fairies I want other than Ribombee and Mimikyu.

So yeah. I can stop guilting myself for not updating my blog in forever now, at least, and say I will at least earnestly try not to leave this for another several months before I touch it again.
