Happy Blogiversary!!!

Hey everyone!

Kpop9019 officially turns 1 year old today! Wow, time passes by so fast. (I know the day is almost over; I’m taking a short break from studying my finals T^T)

I remember, last year, I started this blog since I was bored and wanted to share my passions on the Internet. It was a hot summer afternoon (hotter than this year’s weather, what happened to the summer weather this year?) I was binge listening to Tiffany’s “Heartbreak Hotel” and internally sobbing about finals when I finally mustered the courage and decided to start a blog. Everything was so new and exciting! I’m very thankful for the new learning experiences. I’ve met many other bloggers and read a lot more throughout the past year (for once lol). I’ve published 84 posts (this will be my 85th!) and had my first writer (besides me).

I want to thank all of my followers or anyone who just found this blog! Thank you for reading my content and for the support!! I know my posting schedule has been hectic, but I will try to fix that~

Please stay tuned for new and exciting content! THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!!!

Spring Break Trip!

Hello~

(This is a long over-dued post lol)

For spring break this year, I was able to travel to go travel to Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio! Tbh, these are just random pics I took during the trip and I was also very busy with all the traveling, so I apologize beforehand that I couldn’t take many scenic views of the states…

But without further ado, here they are:

Kuzu no Honkai Anime Review

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve written an anime review. Partially because I haven’t been watching animes (reverted to dramas and henceforth) and because the one I have been watching was new so there is only one new episode per week (which took forever to watch). Let’s break this anime up shall we?

Viewer Discretion Advised!!! (although I assume everyone here is old enough)

Plot: Hanabi Yasuraoka and Mugi Awaya both love someone that is unreachable. In order to fill up their loneliness, they substitute each other as the one they love, in the physical intimacy aspect as well. However, they are not the only ones in pain and there are also characters with a double personality.

Pokemon Spotlight Sundays #11

What’s good everyone? Sorry I forgot to mention this week’s Pokemon last week. Nevertheless, here she is…Mega Lopunny.

When this mega was revealed back in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire days, it came off as sort of a surprise. Never would anyone have thought that a Pokemon like Lopunny would get a mega. It was sort of out of no where, but I kind of like it.

Weaknesses: Before mega evolving, Lopunny is a pure Normal type. Only one weakness: Fighting. Also, of course, no resistances. Now, as a mega, Lopunny gains the Fighting type, meaning it will gain more weaknesses than as just a Normal type. Gaining this typing adds on three weaknesses. They are: Flying, Psychic, and Fairy. Oh and this week, this Pokemon isn’t weak to Taunt.

Strengths and Resistances: As a Normal type, there is of course the Ghost immunity. No resistances. Along with the weaknesses added on with the Fighting type, there are also three resistances that get added on. They are: Rock, Bug, and Dark. In my opinion, this is a mediocore trade. Sure, you get more resistances with the added Fighting type, but you have more types to look out for and fear. Anyways, on to strengths. With a good set of Fighting type moves, you’ll be able to one or two shot most foes with High Jump Kick.
Not to mention that it is now a STAB move with mega evolution.
Plus, if you are playing the actual game, you’ll need to get your friendship up with a Buneary in order to even evolve it to a Lopunny. Therefore, Return will be very powerful. Also, Lopunny gets access to various elemental punches, such as Fire Punch, Ice Punch, and Thunder Punch. This adds on to having good coverage.
Mega Lopunny also gets Scrappy for an ability, so it can actually hit Ghost types with Normal and Fighting type moves.

Set:
Move:
– High Jump Kick
– Return
– Fake Out
– Thunder or Ice Punch
Items: Lopunnite
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Cute Charm
EV’s: 252 Attack
252 Speed
4 HP

Strategy: Fake Out is a fantastic opener. You can waste your opponent’s turn AND get some damage off at the same time. This can be good for stalling them out an extra turn, like so they can succumb to poison quicker, or so you can finish off very weak opponents. If it’s your opener, you can then just use whatever is appropiate. Steel type? High Jump Kick. Anything but a Rock or Steel type? Return. Your elemental punches can also come in handy (get it?) if nothing else works. Depending on what you run, your situations may very. Other than that, you can just sweep through the whole team.

Stats:

Pretty good stats (this is for Mega Lopunny). The Speed and Attack increase is beautiful for this Pokemon. Now it hits hard, and it can outspeed many Pokemon. This is good for a Sweeper such as Mega Lopunny. All in all, I prefer Mega Lopunny over regular Lopunny.

So what’d you think? Will you use this mega? Once Lopunnite become available in Pokemon Sun and Moon, I know that I will be defintely using this. If you’re playing Omega Ruby/ Alpha Sapphire, or Pokemon Showdown, then have fun with this Pokemon! That’s all for this week, tune in next week when we’ll review Hawlucha, the karate chopping luchador of a bird. See you then!
