Exactly what it sounds like. I'm loving it, but I had to change the controls a bit to be more accustomed to it. AND I STILL DON'T HAVE LUCINA!! I got Duck Hunt, Wario, Dark Pit, and one or two other unlockable characters, but still no Lucina! Robin(Alt.) is my favorite character so far. I kinda suck at Smash Run though.... ^^;

I am a pokemon trainer,
travelling on my own.
My pokemon by my side,
I'm a long way from home.

6 pokeballs on my belt,
and 8 badges in my case,
I do not need to be the best,
I just need to find my place.

If only there was someone,
who'd travel alongside me....
A kind girl my age,
who could catch my heart and see....

Like a Cubone I cry,
out of loneliness and despair.
I want to feel better,
so I try to catch something rare.

My pokemon worry for me,
their sad faces break my heart.
I need to be a better trainer,
I need to get a brand new start!

So I take a ferry to Hoenn,
the place I've never gone.
While on the boat I find,
a girl feeding her pokemon.

I introduce myself,
and she says her name is May.
She won a bunch of contests,
now she's going back home today.

I ask if she would join me,
for my adventure begun anew.
May thinks it sounds like fun,
and agrees to go after a day or two.

Her father is a Gym Leader,
and he wants her to bring Max along.
He's her younger brother,
who is getting his first pokemon.

A few days later,
May and Max leave with me.
May has a new style,
and Max smiles confidently.

Together we go through Hoenn,
our bonds of friendship grow.
Max is a smart kid,
he always beats his foe.

May is such a beauty,
her every move is full of grace.
I just can't stop looking,
at her sweet smiling face....

One by one the gyms are beat,
every leader compliments our win.
These days alongside May,
are the best there's ever been!

She's funny and pretty,
with style and finesse.
If I can have one wish,
I'd make her feel like a princess.

I'd risk life and limb,
defending her from harm.
My love would keep her safe,
and my mind would at last be calm.

Whether she sees me as a friend,
or perhaps something more....
I'll love her for her kindness,
and do so forevermore.

Max seems to like me,
the little guy loves to chat.
He may be a bit annoying,
but I can't blame him for that.

Kids are meant to have fun,
and he's doing that job well.
I think he can be better than me,
but only time will tell!

We're going through the forest,
May is walking close to me.
I try to hold her hand,
but if I do will she pull hers free?

I have to make a move,
so I just go for it!
When our hands meet each other,
she simply blushes a little bit.

Later on that day,
Max walks up to me with a sigh.
He says that May won't date,
just any old nice guy.

I ask him what she likes,
but he refuses to accept.
No matter who it is,
her secrets must be kept.

I have new-found determination,
so there is no way to back out.
I ask her for a date,
but she says yes with a bit of doubt.

Her awkwardness is cute,
but I want her to feel secure.
I tell her to relax,
my intentions are very pure.

She asks for a battle,
to help her feel at ease.
But I know that beating her,
will not simply be a breeze.

She has trained hard as well,
but her love is the grand prize.
If I win this fight,
she'll know it was not all lies.

She can trust me to protect her!
I can be the man she needs.
My heart will find a home,
in the place where our future leads.

To hold her in my arms,
is why this battle is being fought.
My heart is like a pokemon,
and its one that she has caught!
A Trainer's Toughest Battle
I haven't written anything for a while, so I tried to produce something decent. I hope you like it and thanks for reading it. :)
K-On to be exact. XD I started watching it. I really wanted to like it, I hoped it would be funny and charming and a great anime. And it is! So fart I've watched the first three episodes, and it is adorablely funny. My favorite girl is actually Mugi. She's sweet, cute, rich, and still a very good girl. Moe for sure! Ritsu is funny too though, and of course Yui is great in many ways herself. Mio.....she is still a bit plain imo. She has a few character quirks, but not enough I think. I also like Nodoka despite her being more of a supporting character than a minor character. She's a great friend for Yui. :)

So that isn't the only new anime I've begun watching. I'm also watching Blood+ on Netflix. It's pretty cool. :)

I might keep watching Excel Saga if I can find episode 9 dubbed somewhere.

Tomorrow I'll be doing some Christmas shopping. I'm happy that for once I have enough money to get most of my family(well most of the family members I see often anyway...) a gift. During the last few years I've felt bad about not being able to do that.... I've never had a bad Christmas. No matter what my mom said about there not being a lot of gifts or not seeing family members or whatever else, I can honestly say I always enjoy it. 

And now about Bayonetta 2..... I've seen reviews, heard some stuff about how it plays, and even tried the demo. When I first heard that it was going to be WiiU exclusive I was ecstatic! FINALLY a game that is worthy of being on the "better systems" is going to be on WiiU, a Nintendo console, and NO WHERE ELSE!! My loyalty to Nintendo has been rewarded at last. Now if the gamers who think their systems are way better and Nintendo can never measure up want to play the sequel to a game they loved, they'll have to step down from their high-horse and come crawling to Nintendo! I'm aware that not all people who own consoles from Microsoft or Sony are like that, and I'm not implying that they are. But there are definitely a lot of those people out there. I am just happy that for once I'll get to play one of the better games on a system I have and it will be from the gaming company I trust(I'm not even going to go into what problems I have with Sony or Microsoft's game-making strategies). A simple example of what I mean by that: Bayonetta 2 comes with the first Bayonetta FREE. If it was exclusive to either Xbox One or PS4, chances are it would not even if the first wasn't already on those consoles anyway. So put in the same scenario as the WiiU, the others wouldn't give you a free copy of the first one. 
But the WiiU definitely needed this sort of publicity. Now more people can see that Nintendo isn't just for kids, it can do just as well as the others, and despite there being a drawback or two(nobody's perfect), you can still enjoy games from them. Thus, they get the respect they've worked so hard to earn from the people who doubted them all these years. There are several youtube videos I could show you to make my point about how Nintendo hasn't gotten the respect it should have. But I don't need to. I'm confident that if someone who doubts them actually plays Bayonetta 2 with a Pro Controller(from what I've heard, it is a much better control scheme that way), they will like it just as much as other games on other systems. :)

I'm gonna wear a Gengar hat(like I've been doing for the past few days already), and watch horror animes all day and all night. Maybe eat some candy too if we happen to have any since my mom is going grocery shopping tomorrow. There are a few good ones on Netflix and I own Elfen Lied on DVD as well. The rest I can watch online. So far the line-up is like this: Elfen Lied, High School of the Dead, Soul Eater, Deadman Wonderland, probably Another, Death Note, and if there is time, Blue Exorcist. Higurashi Kai has been a bit too non-horror lately.... WHY AREN'T THEY KILLING EACH OTHER ANYMORE?!!?!!! XD

I have very little skills with art in general. Although, I am not too bad at writing poetry. My emotions need to be expressed and it is a great way to do it. Seeing the final product of working on a poem that I wrote always takes me out of the bad mood the poem was most likely based on. There are many different sides to me. Good and bad. I hope people will appreciate the better ones.

:iconmugi-sugokuiiplz: :iconmahfeelzplz:Thank you very much for the Watch! :iconakirakogamiplz:
snowjoe72 Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2014
You're welcome! I'm glad that there is another guy who appreciates cute anime stuff like I do. :) Btw, since you have one of the characters in the message you sent, you've probably see it.... But if not, if you want to watch an adorable Lucky Star-esque anime with an innocent yuri twist to it, you should watch Yuru Yuri. 
Bysc Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I didn't watch it, But I'll look up for it ^-^ :iconhappygrinneplz:

Hello! Time without been around here :'D
How are you,huh?
snowjoe72 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014
I've been okay, my computer had completely stopped working, I got a new Zelda-themed Wii U(deluxe package) because of the disc-read errors of my first one, I've watched a few more animes, and I will be getting my new laptpp later today.

I don't know how long it has been, so you probably knew a few of those things already.... But there are probably more things that I forgot to mention..... How have you been though?
Vanegasphotographer Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Have you asked some one to Help You fix Your computer? That would probably help C:
Cool, I've stopped watching animes Because Of school And things like that. I've Also started to read more books. You Know, its always Good to step into a good Reading some time,huh? :'3 So yeah, I've Been fine. I'm glad You Are too.
snowjoe72 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014
I FINALLY GOT A NEW COMPUTER!!!!!!! This was one of the first sites I went on once everything was set up. And btw, the problem with my last one was that the disc drive was broken. It was an internal problem, therefore had to be repaired. Repairing it would've costed more than what I paid for this shiny new laptop.

The only books I read these days are manga.....^^; But I do have some non-manga books I've read too.

Hey, so you won't believe this, I finally encountered a wild shiny of my own! It's an Aipom, and the best part is, about 20 minutes ago I encounted shiny MAGMAR. Modest with H/A, two perfect IV's, and superior overall potential. :) Friend safari is SO good for shiny hunting.
snowjoe72 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014
I told you it was great! I did tell you about the Nincada and Pyroar shinies I got there right? Technically the Nincada counted as two since it only needed one level-up to evolve into 2 pokemon at once, both shiny of course. Also don't forget about the higher probability of hidden abilities. A shiny female Braixen with a beneficial nature and the hidden ability Magician would be amazingly useful in online battles! It will let you steal an item without using a move! Teach it the trusty Flamethrower or Mystical Fire signature move plus Shadow Ball for type-coverage and maybe Drain Punch for a bit of healing as well as taking out pesky Rock or Dark types. To top it off teach it one more move that can confuse or boost stats. Or if you are worried about status conditions, Facade is a great move to have as well. Since Flamethrower has a chance of burning, you probably won't need to inflict a condition with a status move such as Will-o-Wisp.

With all that on a Delphox, you'll have a near perfect one in my opinion! As long as you also Super Train the right stats and don't give it an item anyway. A lot goes into training, breeding, and stuff like that if you want to play competitively. I try to use my own style as well as using some competitive tactics too. So I'd love to have something like that, except I wouldn't worry too much about getting great stats as long as the ones it has are good enough. I also don't use many status moves either.
