Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the third generation. Said to have expanded the lands by evaporating water with raging heat. It battled titanically with Kyogre It had been asleep in underground magma ever since it fiercely fought Kyogre long ago. Groudon is said to be the personification of the land itself. Legends tell of its many clashes against Kyogre, as each sought to gain the power of nature. Through Primal Reversion and with nature's full power, it will take back its true form.

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the third generation. Its short arms stretch when it throws punches. Its technique is equal to that of pro boxers. It scatters poisonous spores and throws powerful punches while its foe is hampered by inhaled spores. It scatters spores from holes in the cap on its head. It loves warm and humid climates. It feeds on trees and plants in fields and forests. The seeds on its tail are made of toxic spores. It knocks out foes with quick, virtually invisible punches. So here it is, the fifty-fourth entry, Breloom.
