Ranting About Pokémon

by Legend

I both like and hate the video game franchise known as Pokémon. It’s a bitter-sweet playing experience for me. Some things in Pokémon I can tolerate, but other things drive me into a ranting fit.

Today I will be ranting about odd things in Pokémon, and also things I dislike about them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Pokémon fan, but I’m one of those Pokémon fans who rant. A lot.

WARNING: I am ranting. Don’t expect a constructive “review”.

Click “read more” for my thoughts.

>That’s right! There’s a new Zelda game being created!
It’s called “The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks”

Look for the official trailer here:

It’s interesting enough. And I was hoping it was for DS. 🙂

>Toon Link

by Legend

>
At last, Toon Link appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl! The same Link from The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker. Toon Link is faster then Link, and his graphics are different. See the update here.

Compare to Link, Toon Link’s head is bigger, but the body is smaller. This is called “Chibi”

Some of his attacks are different, too. In mid-air, Link kicks, But Toon Link slashes.

His sword is big, and this is one of my favorite attacks of Toon Link.

Even if he attacks one way, the person behind him is hit. I would say this is a great way to get those players who dodge too much.

Toon Link uses a boomerang, but Link uses the gale boomerang (which pulls others with a tornado).

Toon Link’s bomb on the left, and Link’s on the right. You can see the difference.

Toon Link’s bomb explosion is different too.

His final smash (Which you get from a smash ball and is really powerful) is the same as Link’s.

That’s all on Toon Link.
