What’s good, Cooltrainers? Your boy Ace is fighting those January blues, binge-watching reels on my Rotom phone and eating fried Zubat wings by the handful. New Year resolutions are for the weak.
The good news is, it never snows in Victory Road. The bad news? It’s always damp and cold. You’d think a cave with Moltres in it would be more temperate. Gonna have to hug me a Magmar before I start losing fingers to frostbite.
Here’s this week’s rundown (estimated read time, 4 minutes):
Don’t get that popcorn ready just yet. Last Friday, the Pokémon Company announced that Pokémon Horizons is now releasing on Thursday, March 7. The date was previously listed as Friday, February 23, so a full 11 days later. No word on what caused the announcement—maybe the move is related to Pokémon Day on February 27?
The Pokémon Scarlet & Violet DLC has been out for a week now, so it’s time to introduce the newest addition to the Pokémon parade: Pecharunt.
Long called the “peach Pokémon” by data miners and leakers, this little dude is the star of the epilogue story. As always, I’m keeping things spoiler free, but if you’ve finished The Teal Mask, I recommend you check out “The Untold Story of Pecharunt” video (below) that released earlier this week.
If you’re already done with the Epilogue, watch it anyway!
Even if you aren’t ready to play the Epilogue just yet, be sure to go into Mystery Gifts and claim the Mythical Pecha Berry (via Internet) just to be safe.
Category: Subjugation Pokémon
Ability: Poison Puppeteer
Pecharunt’s Posion Puppeteer is a new Ability that causes Pokémon that are poisoned or badly poisoned by Pecharunt’s moves to also become confused.
Pecharunt’s new move, Malignant Chain, is an attack that launches a chain of poison that may leave its target badly poisoned.
And don’t forget: use Mystery Gift Code NE0R0T0MC0VER for the Neo-Kitakami Case that looks like Pecharunt infected your Rotom phone too (it also features the Loyal Three on the back, if you like those jerks).
The undead, angry gorilla that’s been the hero of so many Tera Raids is now coming to a mobile device near you!
The Rage Monkey arrives to throw some ghostly hands beginning Friday, January 19 at 10 a.m. local time as part of Battle Week (which runs until Wednesday, January 24, at 8 p.m. local time.).
Primeape evolves into Annihilape after defeating 30 Ghost-type or Psychic-type Pokémon in battle with Primeape as your buddy (you do not have to defeat these Pokémon with Primeape).
Battle Week Event Bonuses:
Field Research Encounters: Mankey (shiny unlocked)
Wild Encounters: Mankey, Machop, Lickitung, Gligar, Sableye, Throh, Sawk, Scraggy (all shiny unlocked).
Ah yes, Porygon. The weird little cyber duck that hands out seizures like Santa hands out presents (old school reference). The Porygon party comes Saturday, January 20, from 2-5 p.m. local time.
This full art Shiny Palafin is giving off some serious Dark Knight vibes in his underwater lair.
Bro needs to stop skipping leg day tho
Until next time,
Cooltrainer “don’t stare at the Porygon!” Ace
