Some of my already know by now that Peter Sallis, most famous for being the voice of Wallace of Wallace and Gromit fame has died recently at the age of 96. The Wallace and Gromit shorts, along with the movie were some of my favorite pieces of animation and I loved watching all of them. One of the things that made them so enjoyable to watch was Peter Sallis' performance as the nutty inventor Wallace. He really gave the character personality, with his accident-prone, but well-meaning attitude and the way he played off of his long suffering best friend Gromit made him one of the funniest characters in animation. 

Peter will be dearly missed by those whom he put a smile their faces through his performance as Wallace, and another role he was known by. Rest in piece old chap.
Improving Pokemon EP1: Samurott
Hello folks, I'm back! Today I want to try something new, something I've had one my mind for some time now. I really like pokemon and I know lots of you folks do to. So let me ask you this; is there a pokemon you really like? One that you might consider to be among your favorites? yet despite your love for it, that pokemon isn't good at battling? This question is what spawn a new series I like to call "Improving Pokemon", were once in awhile I will discuss about certain pokemon, whether they are personal favorites of mine alone, or shared with others. So with out further a due, welcome to the first epode of "Improving Pokemon".

My first subject will be a pokemon that when it was first introduced it was ridiculed by fans, and became something of a joke to most. But after the games it debuted were released, it has since became something of a cult favorite. This pokemon is the water-starter of Gen 5; Samurott.

Poor Oshawott became a pariah among the pokemon community because of how it looked. Most made fun of the big red nose it had. I was originally going to pick Tepig as my starter for gen 5, but after seeing all the hate and scorn Oshawott got, I was overwhelmed by pity and choose Oshawott instead. And still to this day I don't regret choosing Oshawott. It's first evolution Dewott looked really neat. While some aspects of Samurott's design are questionable, like becoming quadruped all of the sudden, it still looked cool in my opinion. For awhile it was my favorite water-starter, until gen 6 came with Greninja. Regardless, Samurott is still one of my favorite water-type pokemon.

However; there are problems with this pokemon that prevent it from being amazing. Samurott only has a measly 70 base speed, making it heavily reliant on aqua jet. While it dose have some great attack stats to make a good mixed attacker, it's move pool is a bit lacking. You got standard stuff like Surf, Waterfall, Aqua Jet, Ice Beam, and it has Megahorn for physical sets to deal with grass-types, it can only go so far. Samurott has an NU ranking on smogon, and other pokemon can easily wall it like Hariyama and Poliwrath(whom I'll get to later). Others like Vileplume, Lanturn, Ludicolo, Weezing, and Garbordor of all things can easily wall Samurott because it lack the moves to counter them. So what your left with is a near-do-well mixed attacker in Samurott. 

So the question now is "how can we improve Samurott"?  I have a few ideas on who Samurott can greatly improve it's performance in battling. I will go over each suggestion individually and try my best to explain how they will work. So here is what I suggest on improving Samurott.

1). Speed Buff:
Definitely one of the biggest buffs Samurott needs is for it's speed. I mean whenever you see samurai in other media, they are usually pot rayed as being pretty fast. I'd say give Samurott at least 20 points to it's speed to raise it to a respectable 90. It's not the most amazing speed stat, but it's an improvement nevertheless.

2). New Hidden Ability:

I would go to move pool, but I want to do this one first because it will tie in to my move pool suggestion later. So for those who don't know; Samurott's hidden ability is Shell Armor, which prevents critical hits. It's a rather useless ability that's situational at best since critical hits don't happen very often. Rather than giving Samurott an existing ability, I thought up a new ability that perfectly fits with it's samurai-inspired design. I call it "Sword Master". A variation of the Iron Fist ability, Sword Master increases the attacking power all cutting attacks by 20%. Let's take Samurott's Razor Shell for example; not only would it get STAB, but now with the sword master ability it's power is increased greatly. Even thought the 95% accuracy will be a problem at time, the massive power increase, plus the chance to decrease your opponent's defense, it would make Razor Shell possibly on of the highest damaging physical water-type moves in the game. But is this all sword master can do for samurott? Just for this one move? That were the move pool comes to play.

3). Move Pool Expansion:

Finally we come to Samurott's biggest weakness next to it's speed: the move pool. Like I said before, it knows the standard Surf and Ice Beam, along with X-Scissor and Megahorn to counter Grass-Types. However; it doesn't have anything else that could help it fend off bulky water types such as Poliwrath and Lanturn. Taking advantage of the proposed new ability I discussed, lets give Samurott a variety of cutting moves like Psycho Cut, Night Slash, and Air Slash for those who want a special, or mixed attacking set. Also Sacred Sword would be a nice addition, IF it would be counted as a cutting move to get the boost from the sword master ability. And this may seem too much, but adding Leaf Blade into the mix would give it the edge over other water-type pokemon that would normally wall it. But then again, Leaf Blade would probably be too much. So adding all those moves, not only would Samurott have a better variety of attack options, but with the sword master ability it basically gets the equivalent to STAB for all those moves. This would make Samurott a big threat in whatever tire it would land in.

 So there we go two of these options, or at least one of them, is how I would improve Samurott. So what do you think? Would any of these suggestions help out Samurott in anyway? Or will it make it too overpowered? Leave a comment down below, and let me know your thoughts on this. And if you want, feel free to make your own article on a pokemon you would improve. 

This has been the DragonKnight, and you all have a good day!

1001 Video Game Songs: The Ruins of Bakyaros
Game: Metamorphic Force
Publisher: Konami
Composer: Michiru Yamane

I'll be heading out on vacation to Panama City Beach Saturday morning, so I'd figured I should get a few entries in before then.

In their golden days, Konami was the king of the Beat em' Up genre. They put out such classics as The Simpsons, X-Men, and of course all the TMNT arcade games. However; there is one that while good, it's a little obscure. It is called Metamorphic Force.

This was apparently Konami's last arcade beat em' up they've released during the 90's, and it was a good note to end on. Basically it's your average beat em' up. You pick from four players, a go around and beat up some bad guys. The story of this game is The Evil One(real "creative" name btw) has risen from his grave, and plots to take over the world(Bison: "OF COURSE"!). So the good goddess Athena summons four mighty warriors: Ban, Claude, Max, and Ivan to stop The Evil One's plans. The main draw of this game is that the heroes can transform into an anthropomorphic beast(Ban/Bull, Claude/Wolf, Max/Panther, Ivan/Bear) by collecting a statue. Yeah it was a typical beat em' up, and this was probably why it was overlooked. It's a shame, because even though it was like any other beat em' up, it still managed to be a fun game.

Now let's get to the music shall we? Placing at Number 9 on Watchmojo.com's Top 10 Opening Level Themes, it's the Ruin's of Bakyaros. This song definitely screams Extreme 90's, and in the good way too. Right from the start, this theme get's your blood pumping as you walk along, beating up all kinds of beast men along the way. Also gotta love those guitar solos. 

A head-bang worthy track, Ruins of Bakyaros is one of the things that shows all the good this game has to offer, and is a great way to open a level.

Sun and Moon's Champion Team
High there folks! I'm not doing my usual 1001 VGS this time, but instead something a little interesting I was thinking about. So Sun and Moon has come and gone, and so far has received a very warm reception. So it's no surprise that we are ready for the next game for this generation. Right now we don't know what Game Freak has in-stored for us. Either it will be the Diamond and Pearl remakes were anticipating, or a possible sequel to Sun and Moon.

Gen VI has been pretty controversial for the fact it didn't have a Pokemon Z, like a lot of people were excepting. This left X & Y feeling unfinished, and is the reason why it's considered by many to be the weakest games in the series. So a lot of people are hoping Game Freak won't pull the same stunt like they did last gen because, while Sun and Moon were great, there some improvements that it needs. Either a remake of the first, or a sequel, Sun and Moon definitely deserve to have a third game in it's respective gen. So this brings up to the topic I wanted to discuss: If the supposed third game is to be a sequel to Sun and Moon, how will the champion battle go?

Since Sun and Moon were anniversary titles, I think it would be fitting if the original protagonists of Sun and Moon were the champions of the sequel games. Taking perhaps two years after Sun and Moon, Sun/Moon are a little older now, and are still the champions of Alola. So it should be no surprise that when you get to the Champion's throne room at the top of the league, you'll find Sun/Moon sitting on the throne, waiting for your challenge. This would be a great throwback to the final battle against Red in Pokemon Gold and Silver. Also depending on which protagonist it is, it could depend on which version your playing, if theres two sequel games. One could have Sun(the male protagonist), while the other has Moon(female) as the champion. Or, they could bring back the memory link feature from Black2 and White2, so that not only would the champion be the gender you chose, but will also be wearing the same clothes your original playable character was wearing in the first two games.

But now lets get to the real meat of this article: What should there teams be? Well first; perhaps it could be the team you had in the first two games? If you could download your original character's looks with the memory link, then why not your original team as well? Now I'm not sure if the levels will be kept, because that would be disastrous if your original team's levels were 100. But I suppose they could nerd the levels down to the upper 60's the first time around. But If you didn't have any data from the first games, then here's what I suggest could be the default team the champion could have.

Right off the bat, half the team should be made up by the Alola starters; Decidueye, Inceniroar, and Primarina. This would make a great homage to Red's team in Gold and Silver, since he also had the three starters from his region. Also I think depending on which starter you choose in this sequel game, the starter on the champion's team that's strong against yours, will have their special Z-Crystal.

For the remaining three, I think Lycanroc would make a good addition. While it could depend on the version that determine which form, I think Midday form would be the best because of it's fantastic speed. Next up I think a Snorlax would also be a great addition to the team, as a massive tank and powerhouse. And finally, the choice for the last slot would be… controversial. I think what should be the champion's last, and strongest pokemon is either a Solgaleo or a Lunala depending on the version. Now normally something like this shouldn't be suggested since they are legendary, and no pokemon league to date have used legendaries. But think about it, Sun and Moon had broken quite a few traditions in the usual formula. also, while it would be a hard battle, it won't be impossible. After all, Sun and Moon are a little harder than usual. This would make the battle all the more epic, and the victory more satisfying. This could also work in the story. The Solgaleo/Lunala the champion uses is actually Nebby, and sometime after the main storyine, The Champion is reunited with Lillie and they give her Nebby. From then on another pokemon would take Nebby's spot. I'm not sure which pokemon though...

So that's the idea I wanted to put out. To whom reads this; what do you think? Would this be a good idea IF they make a sequel to Sun and Moon? Do you have any better ideas for what the team should be like? I'd like to hear you opinion in the comments down below. Thank you for taking time to read this, and have a nice day!

1001 Video Game Songs: Battle! Team Skull Boss
Game: Pokemon Sun & Moon
Composer: Minako Adachi

Sorry for the wait, this time I had a good reason for the long delay. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild… that's all you need to know.

Anyways, this entry goes to one of the best boss themes I've heard in awhile. That's right, it's ya boy Guzma's fight song! Like his regular theme, it's a remixed version of the Team Skull theme, but made to be more intense. I'm not much into hip-hop, but man is this theme bad ass! It really portrays Guzma as a serious threat. My favorite part where the song get's to this break down, and then comes back in with the main melody, but even more intense than before! 

While I think Guzma could have picked some better bug-type pokemon, he still manages to be a great battler, and this theme is basically telling you that this is a guy you don't want to tick off!

Oh, and one more word from Guzma…  "YA'LLl ARE STUPID"!
