I don't dislike Corsola. It's the sort of Pokémon design that you appreciate the more you examine it and try to think about it. But, still, there is some things to be said about it, for better or worse, and examining it has lead me to a theory about how many uninspired Pokémon designs make it through the design process to actually being an in-game creature.

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/24/13!

poot [pooht]
1. A fart.
2. To fart.
3. (used as as exclamation of disappointment, frustration, annoyance, disgust, etc.)

EX. Poot.  It appears I need to come up with an example involving pooting, but I can't think of a situation involving something like the awful shawarma poots the Avengers probably had after the end of their first film's final after/during credits joke.

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/23/13!

abhorrence [ab-or-ens]
1. A feeling of extreme repugnance or aversion; utter loathing; abomination.
2. Something or someone extremely repugnant or loathsome.

EX. I don't think I need to point out the abhorrence of these mega evolution suggestions...

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/22/13!

wombo combo [wahm-boh-kahm-boh]
1. Competitive Gaming. Original Reference Can Be Viewed HERE.
2. League of Legends Slang. An especially good combo of abilities, especially ultimate abilities, between two or more champions on the same team.

EX. In League of Legends, there are a lot of potential wombo combos. For example, Ashe Ult and Ezreal Ult, as seen HERE. Creating combos in your team comp can turn team fights in a pinch with the most simple, to my mind, being Miss Fortune's Ult combo'd with Sona's Ult;  the latter freezes your opponents in place and MF's Ult does a serious cone of damage on top of them. Combine that with an Amumu Ult for more stun and damage, a Rumble Ult for slow and damage, and Karthus Ult to finish anyone lucky enough to run away with health.

I could go on...

If Pikmin were just like 5% more like this video than the rather fun, creative, but sometimes boring puzzle RTS game... it would be the best selling Nintendo franchise since Pokémon instead of something that takes two generations to make a sequel on a console that nobody but the hardcorest of Nintendo fans have bothered to purchase at this point.

Like a chubby red unicorn, I've been chasing around this illusive sneak peak for a couple months, but it has always slipped into the rainbows the moment I find a good link. This time, I managed to tackle it to the ground and ride it right onto this blog article, for you to to view and asses, but I warn you that the brutes in suits at Warner Bros. will take it down again so scurry along and view it before it disappears in a cloud of pixie dust again.

If I learned anything from playing Animal Crossing, it's that the moment you take a loan from an overweight tanuki in an apron you'll be forever indebted and trapped in your subpar existence and have to live amongst a bunch of fickle forest creatures that speak a garbled language and have to repeat their own catchphrase, at the end of every sentence, like an OCD ridden furniture mailing furred or feather maniac. Chim Chim Cheroo.

Speaking of raccoon like creatures, check out this amazing image from a preview of Disney/Marvel's next big project, Guardians of the Galaxy showing Rocket Raccoon weilding an automatic weapon... look at it. LOOK AT IT!

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/21/13!

progenitor [proh-jen-it-er]
1. A biologically related ancestor.
2. A person or object or idea that serves as an indicator, points in a direction, originates something, or serves as a model/example for later iterations.

EX. As a way to celebrate the upcoming sixth generation of Pokémon games, with X & Y respectively, it seems that the powers that be wish to celebrate the landmark with a special animated feature or series about the events of the first Pokémon games, Red & Green. It's cool when they recognize the progenitor of the series, as it gives newer fans a chance to enjoy the past and older fans to be rewarded with some nostalgia. What do you think?

WEEKLY ROUND-UP! AUG. 12 - AUG. 18 2013!



First up, a big shout out to all of the regular readers of Dumbledore Shot First. Every time someone comments/someone shares this blog, it's a big boost to my mood.

This picture was a pain in the butt, for some reason, to get working on this Weekly Round-Up. Just lot a few minutes of my life to it...


Yes. I rewrote the theme to Cheers for North Korea. What do you want?

4. WORD OF THE DAY! 8/14/13! Self-Preservation.

I created the Lion King reference meme of the pic to the right of the Dovahbear about to throw down the Horker King.

3. WORD OF THE DAY! 8/16/13! Space AIDS.

This and the next image were a big hit amongst my gamer friends in NuFu. Everybody Loves Malzahar.

2. WORD OF THE DAY! 8/12/13! Lasers a gogo!

And, now, I'm watching Star Trek: Enterprise and I'm "enjoying" some of the hammiest acting I've ever seen out of cult movie actor standard, Clancy Brown.


This article was one of those doozies that takes a little extra discipline to get just right. I'm so excited about the upcoming Pokémon games!

Also, supposedly, the image below is supposed to be of other Pokémon to recieve a Mega Evolution but, as several creatures with Mega Evolutions were left off of the chart, such as Mewtwo, Mawile, & Absol, I find this claim some what dubious.

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/20/13!

portmanteau [port-man-toh]
1. A combination of two or more words, and/or their definitions, into one word.

EX. The Japanese are known for their use of Portmanteaus. Most Pokémon's names are portmanteau's, ex. Bulbasaur is a combination of "bulb", like the bulb of a plant, and "saur" meaning "lizard" in Latin, and, as a matter of fact, "Pokémon" is a well-known portmanteau of the words "Pocket" and "Monster" used, rather than the original name of the franchise because of copyright issues.

Pokkén [Poh-ken]
1. Theory. Recently, at the Pokémon Game Show in Japan, they unveiled a nifty little promo video about the history of the franchise starring Pikachu. At the end of said video, linked above, there is a static-filled shot of an HD Lucario standing abreast of a Blaziken in a street. Many game journalists have theorized what this could mean; could it be a new Stadium title, a new adventure game, or a new fighting game? With the release of information that Nintendo has copyrighted the terms "Pokkén Fighters" and " Pokkén Tournament" there can really only be one conclusion: there is going to be a Pokémon fighting game released on the Wii-U, and possible 3DS, in the style of Street Fighter or the similarly named Tekken. "Ken" or "兼" literally means "fist", so it can be assumed that Pokkén is a portmanteau of "Pokémon" and "Fist" or "Pokémon" and "Tekken" to represent the fact that this new game is going to be a Pokémon fighting game.

I'll keep you updated as news comes out about this barely rumored title.

I know some of you have already sprung the cash to pick up a copy of Ducktales in HD on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii-U, & PC. I haven't had the chance to yet, as I'm currently about as out of cash as Scrooge McDuck is rich old lunatic, but I've heard some good things. Seeing as these sort of arcade releases are a real brightener to our Augusts going back to the Xbox Live Summer of Arcade back in 2008 with the release of Braid and Castle Crashers.

First up, the original classic Ducktales W/ Lyrics.

Then, we got this juanty little tune about the Amazon level from the NES classic.

Finally, we end on a celebrate of the newly released Ducktales Remastered in glorious HD. I don't have a ton more to say about these. If you enjoy these videos, make sure to comment, like, and subscribe the rest of his work.

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/19/13!

1. The historical accuracy or authenticity of of a work, document, film, etc.

EX. Lemme throw a little piece of historicity your way, and I'll try use one that won't offend anyone since I can think of a few examples of historical corrections of works that upset people I've discussed them with....; Napoleon was  actually 5'7'', which was above average height for the period in which he lived, Catherine the Great didn't die making love to a horse (nor did she probably ever make love to a horse) but instead died, much like Elvis, on the toilet, and John Smith never had any sort of romantic relationship with the young Pocahontas and only mentions her as being a witness of a ceremony he took part in that he believed to be them preparing him for execution but was more likely an adoption ceremony that made him the adopted son of Powhatan.

Disney movies lack historicity. That's probably a good thing.

WORD OF THE DAY! 8/18/13!

cramped [krampt]
1. Afflicted with a cramp in the muscle/s.
2. Confined or limited to a severely tight space.

EX. Poor Pikachu is looking mighty cramped. What? It's Sunday. I was up until 5 AM working on a D & D adventure... okay, I did that the night before, last night I was watching Star Trek Enterprise. What? It's not that bad. Well, the intro does suck. Will checking out the latest piece of Pokémon promotional material from the Pokémon Game Show sate your appetites for content? What is this?
