I’ve personally been waiting on Nintendo to release this console since it was vaguely announced late last year. Aside from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I’m most excited for the new Pokemon game, currently codenamed Pokemon Stars, that is to be released around “holiday 2017.” It’s rumored that Pokemon Stars will be a port of the current Pokemon Sun and Moon games, with a few additions. Could the ever elusive Ghost/Fighting Pokemon Marshadow be one of the mysterious additions? I wouldn’t doubt it…there has been literally no information on exactly when Marshadow would be released…and it technically hasn’t even been announced by Nintendo/GameFreak yet.
Going a little further, Marshadow is super interesting because of its typing; Fighting/Ghost. In theory, Marshadow would be immune to Normal, Fighting, and Ghost type moves. Well, the ghost immunity is likely a bit of a stretch…but here’s to hoping! Unfortunately, every typing combo has a downside. Marshadow would be weak to flying, fairy, and psychic (purposefully excluding ghost here); 3 of the most commonly used move types. On the flip side, Marshadow does get the Technician ability! Pair that with a fighting move, or physical ghost move such as Shadowclaw, and you’ve got a beast! Now, back to the Nintendo Switch…overall!
I’m salty! I did not know that the Switch was going to be available for pre-order so soon. As far as I know, there was no general announcement to the public from Nintendo…so only those “in the know” were able to get their hands on them; they’re literally sold out at all participating retailers here in the US as of this writing. The last resort would be essentially ordering one from GAME in the UK; but the exchange rate is killer! The bright side of this all is, it looks like I’ll get to finish up Final Fantasy XV before getting my hands on a switch after all! Which brings me to the questions, was anyone else lucky enough to snag a Nintendo Switch pre-order before they all disappeared?
