It’s summer time here in America and many people are going on vacation. A very popular and traditional travel destination is a certain place with lots of sand, heat and water. It’s time to hit the beach! The ocean has always been a large role in Pokémon games. According to Bulbapedia, “As of Generation VI, there are 124 Water-type Pokémon or 16.8% of all Pokémon (counting forms and Mega Evolutions that change typing as different Pokémon), making it the most common of the eighteen types.” Today I have some unique themes concerning the beach, hit the jump to enjoy!

Hello PokéFans! My name is Max (Also known as Snormax) and I am a new author here at Pokémon Dungeon. I am excited for the opportunity to participate in the growth of this site along several others. With that, I will be doing a segment that I call “Farfetch’d Friday” in which I will be presenting Pokémon to you that I believe are overlooked in the competitive field and what they can bring to the table. I will be analyzing their type in its defensive and offensive use, its viable moves and items, and topping it off with my own personal set. For this week, I will be doing a Pokémon that I love not just for its adorableness, but also for its pure strength – Cinccino. If you have any input on this cute little critter, let me know in the comment section below!
One of the most unforgettable things about Pokémon are the battles. Not just any ordinary battles; battles with the all-mighty Pokémon of Legend! Unlike regular Pokémon encountered in the wild, there is only one of each Legendary Pokémon: one chance is all you get or they’re gone for good (most of the time). What’s also special about this is the unique music that plays for each one. It’s not as dramatic as it seems but Game Freak sure knows up to amp up an important battle with the soundtrack!
