For the next 4 days, I will do something a bit different on this blog. We will host a fictitious New Year’s Party on Pinkie’s Paradise and we will discuss who we will be inviting. Today we will look at what team of Pokémon I bring to the party, tomorrow I will look at 5 bloggers that would get an invite to my party. The day after we will invite some anime characters and if I have time on new years we will invite 5 game characters as well. Maybe an extra post of movie characters to complete all my content forms but we will see, somehow inviting characters that look like real life people freaks me out more, so I might invite actors… work in progress. Anyway today we will discuss 6 pokémon that I will be taking to Pinkie’s Paradise New Years Party (or who’d be welcome on any other New Years Party along with me). Why six instead of 5? Well because a full Pokémon Team consists out of six of course.
Party Pokémon 1: Chansey
New Years Eve Parties can get a bit wild. With fireworks going off, sparkly sticks in your hands, highly flammable hats on your head, alcohol in your blood and euphoria on the brain, it can be “dangerous’ as well. I myself at least have been accident prone on New Years eve, wether it’s getting a cold from standing outside and watching fireworks, slipping on an icecube someone dropped on the floor, getting a door slammed in your face when someone you open the door for pushes it open somewhat to excitedly, or drinking to much and suffering the consequences. A medic is always useful to have. Chansey is that type of pokémon. Chansey is basically the St Bernard of the pokemon world. For those who don’t now a St Bernard is one of those dogs that are drawn in cartoons to walk around mountains to dig people out of ice and then feed them alcohol, medicinal of course , from a keg at their collar.
With Chansey’s egg we can make eggnog and she can even throw her egg to make it into a little bomb which means she even brings along some fireworks. Chansey is also the perfect size to help you bring some drinks. No matter what your poison of the evening is, she can fetch it for you. Since she makes medicine at the pokémon center we can assume she should be able to mix a cocktail as well so this is definitely a good first choice. Plus it’s pink! That’s like my signature thing.
Party Pokémon 2: Jigglypuff
Of course we want a performer at our party as well and what better pick than crowd favorite Jigglypuff. Of course you’d fall asleep if it sings and it will scribble on your face, but as long as that happens before new years it can be a hoot and a half. Just imagine you and your friends set yourself up for a fun new years eve, you all dress up nicely, put on your silly hats, but something is missing. What is it? Having everyone be doodled on randomly of course. Hilarity guaranteed. While you all roll around the floor laughing from the artwork of this little pokémon, by now Jigglypuff can also function like an adorable pink Balloon decoration. Brightening up any place it goes. Plus in this day and age Jiggles has learned other sound moves that do not lul you asleep, so in 2019 and certainly in 2020 it should be able to pull of a song that doesn’t make you fall asleep.
It can learn disarming voice for a super peaceful song, plus it can learn Mimic. Put on the radio and let it use mimic and you will have the cutest karaoke you will ever see. Generation 7 also introduced an ability that could save yourself from Jigglypuff. The ability comatose. The pokémon Komala in the anime was the first creature ever to fully hear Jigglypuff’s song. Now I have heard that a lot of alcohol can bestow this ability as well, so hey Jigglypuff also encourages people to drink and have fun! So there is no way I am not bringing it along. And what do you know it’s pink!
*Disclaimer: In actuality we do not condone the activity of comatose drinking (it’s at least a thing here in the Netherlands) , we do encourage you to enjoy yourself at a party and have a drink but do so in healthy moderation. All statements about excessive drinking in this post are for entertainment purposes only…. and perhaps some poor life choices of Pinkie herself.
Party Pokémon 3: Klefki
Since I live in a 26m² apartment, New Years parties are not really ever held at my place. I could not fit more than 5 people plus booze and we usually celebrate with more people. Luckily this year we have my tropical island. But at the end of the evening there is always a problem. Getting home drunk. While you can always wander home on autopilot there is one thing that has always been tricky to me. Opening my door while drunk. It doesn’t help that I need several keys to go through several doors to get there and that they look exactly the same when sober. let alone when drunk. First of all for some reason, keys always dig into weird spots in your purse where you certainly did NOT put them. Than you have to find the right key and all while keeping your balance. Honestly there should be a better way.
Luckily there is. The Key Ring Pokémon Klefki! It loves getting keys and will never let them go, thusly never ever lose one. It is stated in the pokédex that bankers often use it to store vault keys in it and they use it to let it open doors. A keychain that will open doors for you plus keep your keys safe forever and ever seems like a briljant pokémon in general, but as a steel fairy type it can safely guide you back to your bed is a delight to have after a big party. It won’t even eat the snacks as Klefki can feed themselves from sticking their horn in holes found in metal objects to absorb some metal ions. It’s a well behaved pokémon and it doesn’t hurt it has a pink decoration either.
Party Pokémon 4: Blacephalon
Nobody knows this pokémon exists, well barely anybody, so at the very worst you already have a great conversation starter when you bring along this pokémon to a party. It appears very clown like both in looks as in demeanour. While this Ultra beast is in some ways still a ghost type trying to rob you of your vitality, as well as an Eldritch Abomination of the pokémon world, there still is some merit in bringing this pokémon along to a party. You have to make sure it will obey you or people WILL get killed at the party, but if it’s your buddy, this pokémon is New Years eve, encapsulated in a Beastball. Since it takes you about the entire evening to explain to people that it IS in fact a pokémon, that it only appeared into Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and that someone did actually play those games and that they are not exactly the same as regular Sun and Moon, by the time it comes to show it off it will be around midnight and the perfect time to show of its abilities.
You see Blacephalon is the fireworks pokémon. It will throw it’s head away which will explode in some beautiful fireworks. Once you are staring at it with oohh’s and aahh’s it WILL try to steal your vitality so keep that in mind but hey… free fireworks is still plenty of reason to bring it along. It doesn’t have to steal YOUR vitality it might just steal some of that weird uninvited person that always shows up at parties pretending to be best friends with you all. There’s always one of those. Even if it’s evil, the fireworks pokémon should not be missing on new years eve. Since it’s fireworks are blue and pink it can’t be THAT evil anyway.
Party Pokémon 5: Shiny Celebi
Something that always happens to me, or us at New Years parties is one of the following. Option A; You are having so much fun with your friends that somewhere during your party you actually here fireworks going off outside, whoops we missed new years, than your clumsily do the hugs and kisses dance that everyone does, fill your glass of champagne and run outside wasting half the firework show to find out where the prettiest fireworks are coming from. Option B : There is an odd number of people at the party and way before midnight you already know. At midnight I will have no one to hug or platonical kiss with. As that ten count goes down you see everyone just moving an inch closer to each other for the dance knowing you will be the last one to be shown love in the first seconds of this new year.
This year there is an Option C for me however, since I am inviting a bunch of fictional characters, a few of them will be girls I’d like.. which one should I kiss first? Luckily all these problems can be solved by the pokémon Celebi. A cute as buttons mythical pokémon that can allow you to travel time to solve all of these problems. You can just go back and choose a better spot on the couch, so you are in the hug zone, you can kiss all the girls first and stick with the one who seems most into you and most commonly, you will never miss a new years countdown again. It also has the power to make wishes, moves that can heal you of burns and being poisoned and that is not even the best reason to bring Celebi along. It is said that when you see it a bright and shining future would await you and what better way to start the new year as with good tidings?! By now you should already have figured out why I would want it shiny! That’s right! It is pink!
Party Pokemon 6: Shiny Alolan Rattata/Raticate
The coming year, 2020 is double twenty a fun number. 20-20 the millenium is the same as the decennium. So we just bring pokémon number 20 to celebrate. Or if you are a real trooper you take a level 19 Rattata and feed it a rare candy at midnight. Rattata evolves at level 20. So when Pokemon Number 19 moves to level 20 it becomes level 20. This already is like a perfect mind blowing event to do at midnight but it gets even better. Your New level 20 , pokemon 20.. is ALSO the correct year of the Chinese zodiac. That’s right, Pokémon 20 is a rat, and the year 2020 is the year of the rat! That is to much poetic goodness not to take it.
Raticate can help you clean up after the party is done as well. As a rat you can probably feed it all the leftover junk, plus some of the actual trash you made. Quiet efficient. The Alolan variant being a dark and normal type is also perfect to deal with your ghost type Blaceaphalon should it go out of control and kill too much people. It can not be hit by ghost type moves and can bite super effectively with a stab boost, so yes it will help you clean up your mess in more ways than one. While at level 20 it could still have a problem with the fireworks guy, but hey jigglypuff can put it to sleep before. Just level that one without giving it a moonstone and you will be safe. While having snacks at a party is always beneficial I opted out giving this spot to an edible pokémon because… well i want to keep my pokémon and not find my Apletun three quarters eaten the next day. So poetic ratiness, has won plus I hate cleaning up and alongside Chansey we can leave her and Raticate up to their devices to clean. While the shiny isn’t exactly pink it’s close enough , it’s cheeks and tail are pink and itself is somewhat pinkly hued. Most people at the party will be too drunk to notice anway!
For those not reading my other 3 posts on this subject Happy New Years already! But less happy than for those who will read my other posts as well!
