Pick two Fire-type Partner Pokémon: Arcanine and Ninetales
Reason(s) for liking Fire-types: I love there great designs and the fire starters are so cute and there also very strong!
Answer to current topic:
Solar Surge - (Fire, 120pwr, 85% accuracy, 5pp) On turn 1, the user charges up, and boosts their special attack stat by 1 stage. On turn 2, the user fires a blazing lazer at the foe. If the sun is shining, there's is no charge time, and before the attack is used, special attack is boosted by 2 stages instead before instantly attacking.

Welcome! That is quite a powerful move you've made there. While I think that move might be a tad overpowered, I do like the idea of having a Fire-type move that has a charge time like Solarbeam except when the sun is out.

I apologize as it's been quite a while since I've posted, but things are slowing down a bit for me so I should be back to my regular activity from now on. Anyway, here's our first Pokémon of the Week in quite a while!

Rapidash!

Diamond Pokédex: It gallops at nearly 150 mph. With its mane blazing ferociously, it races as if it were an arrow.

That explains why Ash was able to come back from so far behind with it.

Rapidash has always been just okay to me. This mostly has to do with it's lack of great Physical Fire-type moves. It get's Flare Blitz now of course, but it still takes recoil from that, so I'm not a huge fan of that move obviously. Even still, Rapidash gets some decent moves (including Megahorn, which is one of my favorites) and it has good speed, so it's still a fairly good Pokémon all things considered.

I really like Rapidash's design. It's a unicorn, but not the generic 'pretty princess' or 'magical fairy' unicorn. It's a frickin' fire unicorn! It manages to look both elegant/beautiful and awesome at the same time.
Battle...I've never battled using a Rapidash, to be honest. I've never really looked at how it would perform in battle. But I do use one for the Speed category of HG/SS's PokeAthlon, and it works pretty well there..

Basically (from what I understand) Quajutsu picks a Fire type Pokemon and we all discuss it.

It's been a while since I'd last posted here, haha.

Didn't we have Rapidash as our Pokémon of the Week before, if memory serves correctly? Anyhow, I'm a fan of it, but I'm kind of disappointed as to how underrated it is, both in terms of games and anime. On either of these sides, it's rare to be seen.

Competitively, it's also underrated; not many of us often find ourselves using Rapidash. If it were to gain a mega-evolution at some point--which would allow the Pokémon to get an ability upgrade, stats raise, and so forth--I believe this would help change that.

Shiny Rapidash looks really awesome, I'm glad you brought it up. It's gotta be one of my favorite shinies around.

Answer to current topic: Rapidash runs at about 150mph and when it does an all-out gallop, it mane sparkles.

I must apologize for my inactivity here ive been very busy lately. But anyways welcome new members!

Anyways POTW Rapidash
Ive never really liked Rapidash that much as a pokemon to use in your party its just such a plane fire type that doesnt have many good moves other than flare blitz although i think its overall design is cool its just not one of those pokes you wanna battle with.

Pick two Fire-type Partner Pokémon: Blaziken and Chandelure
Reason(s) for liking Fire-types: Fire-types are part of the starter trio. Then there are amazing Fire-types like Blaziken, Chandelure, Magmortar and so on. So there's no reason to not join this club.
Answer to current topic: PoTW Rapidash
Rapidash is simple but elegant looking Pokémon. It's rather unfortunate it has a limited movepool and lackluster stats. I have a Ponyta for Pokémon Contest and it performed well!
