Fanswers Edit

My favorite strategy is Protean Kecleon. Its awesome to take down Mega Lucario and Blaziken with it.

Email 2 (Bill Velociraptor) Edit

For Valentine's day I would love to get a shiny Roserade.

Email 3 (Tommy) Edit

I agree with Alex's belly drum Azumarill. My sneaky strategy is swift swim Poliwrath and Belly Drum. I lead with an Electrode with taunt and Rain Dance.

Email 4 (Locksodonta15) Edit

I love your channel! I have a sneaky strategy: In double battles have a gourgiest use trick or treat on your allies that know explosion.

Email 5 (Quinn) Edit

My most disapionting evolution is Blastoise, it drops the theme. Another is Cofagrigus.

Email 6 (Hose) Edit

Most dissapointing evolution was Bayleef to Meganium.

Email 7 (Kai) Edit

I never liked the Buizel line. I also dislike Surskit to Masquerain.
