There's no specific reason for this journal to exist. I just wanted to talk some about pokemon when I had the chance.
I would like to talk about this at school, but many of them are interested in other games, so yeah. )=
AND what's better than vent all that stuff here? ;D Or at least just write freely about whatever I want. XD
Be warned! This is a long journal! (If you can't see the whole thing, then scroll down after clicking the text)
First of all, I wanna thank my friend
for her present! >w<
She gave me the first book of the Percy Jackson saga! And it's in English!! asdfgasdfgasdfg!!
I was longing to read a book in English days before she gave that to me!! So I was quite happy with that gift!
Thanks a lot one more time!!
And yup, I'm sort into reading again. :3
Some days ago I started reading two translations in Spanish: "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and "El Oro" ("L'Or" as in the original in French).
It all started with the HP6 book, since I read half of the book years ago but didn't finish it, si I wanted to start reading it again since the beginning. Come on, I don't even remember where I left or what happened before that. Dx
But as I read, it turned sort of monotonous... I sort of knew the words the translator used because I've read the other books (1-5), and what I was looking for was something different to enhance my vocabulary in Spanish, so I took the other book (L'Or) and started reading it. It was ok, since I could note a different style when writing, thus I felt it was what I was looking for.
But all this lead me to think I haven't practiced English enough (which is bad, since I feel I'm sort of forgetting stuff, and I don't want that to happen! x_x ), not as I used to some years ago! So I downloaded Hamlet and The Hobbit in both languages: English and Spanish.
I would start reading a paragraph in English and then take a look /read the same paragraph in Spanish, that way I could have an idea of what they tried to say, and to confirm, or learn something new, when reading the Spanish version. Don't you think that's a great way to learn some vocabulary? ^^
What I noted about the Hobbit book, is that it had some words I didn't know even on the first page! The first page!!
I know I don't know every word in the English language, but it just surprised me. (Though I shouldn't, since it's not that I read a lot anyway. ;w; *cries about the cruel reality* )
Some cousins told me that some words were British, since Tolkien is very good at writing British English of that time (Old English for his medieval story, it seems.), so it would be natural of me not to know their meaning. :"D
This Hobbit thing started when I went to the movie theater with my friends and saw the "Desolation of Smaug". I was adviced to watch the first part before this second part, but I did something else and ended up watching just the second part. XD So I liked the movie and decided to read the book, which I assumed it was way better than the movie (yet I must say the effects and detail of the movie were just awesome!!) like most of the book adaptations.
I could have started watching "The Lord of the Rings" Pt. 1 first, but I decided starting with "The Hobbit", since that's where the whole thing starts. Plus, every time I tried to watch TLOTR, something happened, and I ended up watching just a part of the whole movie. ;^;
~ Pokemon ~
Hey guys! Guess what?
I was happily playing Pokemon Platinum yesterday, when I got surprised!
I was walking by on route 215, trying to find a Staravia whom to teach Fly to (since the Staravia I had, now an Staraptor, didn't know that move nor I wanted to teach him that) when I met a Lv. 20 Scyther! asdfgasdfgsdf!!
I love Scyther! *w* Its a pokemon that has helped me a lot on other versions since it can learn False Swipe and, you know, it's quite useful when catching pokemon! x3 (Though I had bought two TMs with that move. xD
That's why I love Scyther! nd now I've caught one there! >w<
The best part is that I just met the Day Care couple in one of the cities, so I was thinking on raising a baby Scyther from Lv. 1.
And after that victorious caught, -2 or 3 battles after that-, a wild female Scyther appeared! And I felt so lucky!
So~ Now I'll catch a female Scyther with the help of the False Swipe move! ^^
Wish me luck! ;3
I'm thinking in doing an alternate team, in whcich includes a Scyther, a Skarmory and I'm still thinking about the remaining pokemon. Why am I planning on doing this? Simple, both Scyther and Skarmory are types I don't normally use in a battle: Steel and Bug. (Yet I do use some moves of those types). I'm sort of trying to use different types. :3 I might add a Poison type pokemon, and a rock or dragon type to the team.
Oh, yeah, yesterday I also caught a second Drifloon at Valley Windorks. ^^
I got confused the first time I saw that pokemon, since I thought it was the candle-pokemon (Litwick's evolution) that appears in Gen. 5. D: So I was a little disappointed. Anyway! XD There are lots of pokemon to train besides that one!
As you might know, I chose Chimchar as my starter. ^^ Yay for fire pokemon! >
Right now he's a level 35 Monferno who's close to evolve into an Infernape! >w< I want to fight the next Gym Leader with my new team!
What's my pokemon team, you might wonder~ Well, here it is:
Lv. 35 Monferno
Lv. 31 Crobat
Lv. 30 Luxray
Lv. 31 Floatzel
Lv. 34 Staraptor
And this last place belongs to no specific pokemon yet. I use it for pokemon with an usable HM/TM move like Rock Smash or Cut.
I have 4 medals and I finally can use fly!
I loved when my Golbat evolved into a Crobat at level 29. ;w; I felt so happy. I leveled him up since he was a little Lv. 10 Golbat.
And talking about evolutions... I have an Eevee and a Togepi! ^^ I must say I have trained none of them. I'm curious about Togekiss moveset and abilities and I want a Leafeon! >w< When I read how to evolve that pokemon I immediately remembered the moss rock at the woods in which a girls helps you battle Team Galactic! Plus I can have a ton more of them at the Day Care! Mwahahaha! *laughs evilly*
Ok, no. I wouldn't make a ton of them (besides, poor Eevee).
But, as you know, it's just an expression. ;3
I think I'm being a bit chatty today.
Anyway, hope you have a great day!
