Doofs transcend evolution. How inspirational.

Anyway good job getting Shellos. If she lives to the end, she might be the MVP.

Part six! The calm before the (potential) storm that is Gardenia's gym battle. Hoo boy....

Anya Homura: Ah sweet, a future ground-type! God knows you'll need one of those when the Electric Types start actually showing up. She must be protected at all costs. And, as predictable, the trend of Bidoof continues. You're going to need another Box for those things by the time you reach the Elite 4.
I'm SO sick of the Doofs. It didn't occur to me that my "no dupes clause" rule meant I'd start missing out on cool catches because of these damn things. At least I got that Shellos tho! Now to just keep her alive until she evolves.

Nedlocke1: Doofs transcend evolution. How inspirational. Anyway good job getting Shellos. If she lives to the end, she might be the MVP.
DON'T JINX IT god I HOPE she survives, I'm pretty sure this is the point in the game where trainers start using stuff like Pikachu and Luxio.

Illven: Woo, Water type. AKA Best type!
Same, I love water types! (Ground types are better tho don't kill me pls)

Squiggy Azalea: Hey hey, a monolocke of platinum! that's pretty nifty, i like the little banters you got going there with all of your mons, its pretty cute :D

Thanks! I was kinda worried a waterlocke would be redundant, I'm glad people are enjoying it so far.
And yeah I'm....a LITTLE nervous about some of the late game bosses (especially since Platinum is notorious for giving egg / tutor moves to enemy trainers) but as long as I stay focused I'll be fine.

You probably should've caught that Bidoof, y'know.

It's not my fault Raspberry critted it.

Yay, bloodshed!




Too easy! Gimme something challenging!



Sushi, you're up. I want you to get some more EXP.

Hell yeah.



UH.......


Oh fuck!

That's not good. Get her out of there!

This could get ugly............Pecan, get in there! You've got the best chance of taking this thing down.

Doof!

What the hell are you doing? I've got Peck, I can probably kill it.

It's too risky! Pecan is the safest bet.

This is a terrible idea, Jan....





Oh god, oh god............



















D-doof....*thud*

Pecan!!

No way....

Ah!!!!!!!

Didn't see that coming.

....STAND BACK, EVERYONE. [Kjell used Peck!]




Take THAT, you overgrown weed!



Is she....?

....she's gone.

I TOLD you you should've used me instead.

You wouldn't have survived a mega drain either....

You don't know that!

Would you two knock it off? Do you think Pecan would want you two fighting like this?

.....you're right. Sorry.



You were our first teammate, Pecan. Even if you didn't say much, we all cared about you a lot and appreciated your company. May you rest in peace.

So....what do we do now?

We train. And we make sure that nothing like this happens again.

Agreed.

Might as well grab one of the other 'doofs from the PC while we're at it.

Didn't that one Bidoof say she convinced the others to rebel?

She was probably bluffing. There's no way they won't join me.



There's no way I'm joining you.

Huh? Why????

Ebony Darkness told me aaaaaall about you. You treated her like a daughter and then dumped her in the PC as soon as you found someone to replace her! You broke her heart, you know.

Wait, seriously? She was on our team for about ten minutes.

It doesn't matter! There is NOTHING you could possibly do to get me out of this PC box.

I'll buy you an ice cream cone.

Deal!

[One training sequence and 200 fainted Shellos later....]



Okay, you've gained a few levels....but we're not making much progress here. Maybe we should try some trainer fights.

Let me at 'em!

You're not going to ACTUALLY fight them. You're just gonna watch.

Let me watch everyone else go at 'em!





How's the switch-training treating ya, Peanut?

This is great! I get free experience points without the risk of dying!

You'll get sick of it real soon, trust me.

Sorry Sushi, I'll get back to training you soon.



.....

Dude? Didja get cold feet or something?

I'm just....a little nervous. We're going to be fighting Gardenia pretty soon, and after what happened with Pecan....

Lighten up. Pecan's death wasn't your fault. As long as we pay attention we'll be fine.

If you say so.




Lies. I had NO say in the matter.



Feh. I eat bug pokemon for BREAKFAST.

No you don't.

No, I don't.



UM.

Never. Send. Me. Out. Against. A. Pachirisu. Again.




I feel kind of funny....[Raspberry learned Hidden Power!]

Oh, neat!

Hey, you haven't caught anything here yet.

True.



*sigh*


At least we have a backup 'doof now....?

Peanut was the backup. This is like....backup for the backup to the BACKUP.

Wait, back up. What was that about backups?

UH.....



Wow, already?



....Doof?


YOU'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.

Pfffffffft, gotcha.



Woo! Evolution made me buff!!

Rollout OP.




These people are giving me the creeps.



I'm uncomfortable!




Wow, that's....kind of useless. Oh well.

At least we got a ton of free healing from her.



F-feisty....??

Every adult in this region is a creep.



Does....does this guy have a WHOLE TEAM of Magikarp?


Looks like it.

....LET ME AT EM. KARP BATTLE!



I'm buff as hell!


You're also out of PP.



NIIIIICE.

Now THAT'S what I call using your head!

Perish.



*wince*

Try to lighten up a little. We'll be fine.



That's not why I'm here, but sure.



You were right, dude. Every trainer in this region IS a creep.

Eh, he's just mumbling to himself about planetary destruction. That's not too outlandish around here.




....is he serious?

Wow. He's an absolute genius.

We should probably get training, you know.

You're right. But FIRST....



A backup!


Oh please. You won't NEED a backup once I evolve.

Better safe than sorry. Let's get to it!

And that's a wrap! Part seven should be out pretty soon. Seeya!

RIP Pecan "Doof?" Bidoof/Bibarel. You will be sorely missed.

And aaawww, you missed out on the free grinding Cheryl provided. She heals you up automatically after every battle, so all you had to do was make sure no one faints and you could have gotten them all up to around Lv 20 or so. But not having the free fallback does make for some interesting uncertainty for Gardenia up ahead!

Part seven! Sorry I'm late, I planned on updating over the weekend but I had to pick up an extra shift at work.

Squiggy Azalea: oh no pecan ;-; at least you got a buncha backup bidoofs.... those lil fellas are great. and hey! you're about to get the best water-type in the game once you can evolve that magikarp, how does that feel? :D
Feels good! I used a Gyarados last time I played Platinum and he absolutely wrecked house, once she learns Ice Fang I won't even have to worry about grass types. (I also learned that Gyarados learns dragon rage at level 23 so Gardenia probably won't be an issue.) And it's nice to have so many backup 'doofs, I forgot how good Bibarel is in the early game.

SilverLeafeon75: Lol, all it takes is an ice cream cone!
Indeed! That's how I got accepted into college, y'know.

Nedlocke1: NOOOO PECAN!!! WHY IS IT ALWAYS MY FAVORITE?! Peanut is luckily here to carry the torch of the Doof! IT WILL NEVER DIE!
I can't guarantee she won't die! But worst case scenario I can put her in the box after I get a better water type. I'd probably box Della first though.

Poopawman: Rip pecan but peanut the greatest shill since Brigitte the "feminist" Rhydon. Still, Sushi needs to grind like never before since time is running out.
She's in a better place now.....the PC big PC box in the sky. Luckily there's still a couple of trainers for me to fight, so I can definitely get Sushi evolved.

Anya Homura: RIP Pecan "Doof?" Bidoof/Bibarel. You will be sorely missed. And aaawww, you missed out on the free grinding Cheryl provided.

I miss her already....also I knew about the free Cheryl grinding, I just figured it'd be easier to grind on the route near Mt. Coronet since there's more trainers and the wild pokemon are a higher level. Let's hope I don't regret that!

You guys ready for some grinding?

Hell yeah.

I'll evolve soon, I can feel it....let's get training!

Sure.

Whee!

Let's go. Wait, why is Acorn here?

HM slave.

Ah.




Isn't that the champion? What's she doing here?

SSSSHHHH! Spoilers, dude!



Cool!


Is it?

Not at all.




Woo! Talk about an adrenaline rush.




Cool!

Where am I? What year is it?




Yeah, Acorn! Smash those rocks!

What are you so excited about? There's nothing interesting about rock smash.

I'm trying to encourage Acorn so he doesn't turn on us like the rest of the 'doofs.

Ah.



No comment.

Here, I'll comment for you. TOO MANY DOOFS!

Alright....we've fought every trainer. Time to get grinding.




Sweet, I can actually deal some real damage now.

I got the better move.

SHUT IT.

*wiggle wiggle*

More murder tools!

Jan.

Hm?



It's time.

Oh shit!



Well.....how do you feel?

....HELLLLLLL YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'M A FRIGGIN' MURDER MACHINE!

Heh. Congratulations, fishlips.

Jeez, can you use your inside voice? Some of us get headaches very easily.

NOT A CHANCE!




We're in pretty good shape, I think we're ready.

I'm dying!

Oh, oops. Let's visit the pokemon center first.



*wince*

YOU'VE GOT ME. PEANUT AND KJELL CAN SERVE AS BACKUP. RELAX, JAN. WE'VE GOT THIS.

You're right. Let's do this thing!


Sushi, wanna try out your new move?


I'D BE DELIGHTED! *FWOOOOOSH*



[And this is pretty much how all of the gym trainer battles went.




Here we go....Sushi, let's go! Let's see if all that hard work and training paid off!

I'M NOT SCARED OF A BUNCH OF PUNY PLANTS. BRING IT ON!



SEE? EASY AS PIE.

Good job, but you took a hit there. Let's have Peanut step in, just to be safe.

Are you crazy?! I'm a water type, you moron.

Allow me to make a rebuttal;



Cherrim is weak as shit.

....fair enough.


This is it....her strongest fighter....Sushi, hit it with a Dragon Rage!



GHH!! I CAN'T.....FEEL MY BODY..........

Sushi, get out of the way!

[Roserade used Grass Knot! A critical hit!]



HUFF.........T-TAKE THIS, YOU OVERGROWN WEED!

Yes!!!! Sushi, you're a beast!!

We REALLY need to stop having close calls like that.



Only six more to go....

And that's a wrap! Part eight will hopefully be up sometime later this week. Seeya!

Anya Homura: Woo, nice and simple compared to how badly it could've gone! The rest of the region should be easier, considering how this is still Platinum it'll still be hard... but we've passed the biggest stress-point.
I'm honestly relieved, I totally forgot Gyarados learned dragon rage so early! Hopefully the rest of the region will go smoothly, I just need to make sure I have a ground type at all times....oof.

Second: Way to go, making it past Gardenia! Dragon Rage is fun early in the game. Enjoy your Gyarados, Sushi deserves it.
Thanks! I'm gonna abuse Dragon Rage as much as I can, I totally forgot Gyarados learned it this early.

Alba Corbina: Yay, Sushi evolved!
I'm happy too! Now I just have to make sure she stays alive lol.

Illven: Yay, water bending style!
Best style!

Let's get going, guys. Hearthome City awaits!



Or not.

Dammit. Why would you make it so the main exit to your city is only accessible by bike?

Capitalism?

ISN'T THERE A BIKE SHOP NEARBY?

Oh, I didn't even notice it. Good eye, Sushi.



Oh HELL yeah.


Wow, was that guy waiting here the entire time? Probably would've helped for training Sushi, man.

Shut up!



Oh for god's sake.




I know that this town is full of old people, but how did no one notice the totally suspicious building that criminals keep coming out of? There's grunts ALL OVER the city, too.

To be fair, I didn't notice it either.

That's unsurprising.

Hey! Wanna become an HM slave?

GOD no.

That's what I thought.



Sweet.



Good job blowing your disguise, you moron.





You guys work pretty well as a team, y'know.

Oh please. I did all the hard work.

I've got the stronger moves, you hothead.




What a bunch of jokers.

[And then Kjell beat the rest of the Galactic Grunts but no one wants to see that. She also tried to learn Bide, which I decided against contrary to popular (Nedlocke1's) belief I am not an idiot.]



Wait, how did you even get inside the building without your pokemon? How did you cut down the trees? How did you get past the grunts? How did you-

Sssshhh!!! You're not supposed to question the logic of a pokemon game.



Yes, a bike actually.



No, just the bike.



*sigh* Della, deal with this clown please.

My pleasure.



O-ow.


Wasn't expecting it to know Giga Drain. Della, switch out.



....that's a BIG skunk.


Let me at 'em! I can do this!



[suddenly remembers Night Slash has an increased crit chance] OH SHIT OH SHIT-



Oh nvm.



Yaaay! My heartbeat is slowing down! *puke*

Damn, Mud Bomb isn't doing nearly enough damage.

I GOT THIS.



GYARAAAAH!!!!


Excellent work!

[Whew! I remember this thing being an absolute pain to take down the last time I nuzlocke'd this game.]





I mean....good luck taking over the world with your army of Zubats and Stunkies.

If the pokemon statue is a myth, how are you going to take over the region with it?

I thought I told you guys not to question video game logic.



Cool!



NOT cool!

I SWEAR, FOR EVERY USEFUL ITEM WE FIND WE IMMEDIATELY GET SOMETHING USELESS RIGHT AFTERWARDS.



Ugh, exercise.



UM....

Oh god oh god....



Oh, it didn't actually use an electric move. Crisis averted!



Ow. Stop sending me out at low health, dude.



Much better.







There's a LOT of electric types here.

Eh, none of them are using electric attacks. We're fine.

I can't feel my legs!

You don't HAVE legs.



Rare footage of me using a water type move!



Uh, where the hell are we? I can't see a thing.

Wayward Cave! There's a really good TM here.

Oh, I've heard of this place. I hear there's a really annoying obstacle course.

Eh, how bad could it be?



[EXTREMELY bad.]

God dammit!



THERE we go. And it only took 35 minutes!

Are you okay?

Absolutely not! Let's get out of here.



WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!




This guy still gives me the creeps.

How much do you wanna bet he's the "leader" that Team Galactic girl was talking about?

Too obvious.



New route?


MIGHT AS WELL WAIT UNTIL YOU GET A BETTER FISHING ROD.

True.





'Scuse you. I'm 21 years old.

Really? You don't look a day past 14.

Shut it!


.

....FUCK ROSELIAS.



What is this thing?

A useless item! Let's throw it in the water and see if it sinks.



Ah, Hearthome....the city of cool game mechanics that we're going to ignore! But more importantly....




Hey there.

Howdy! Finally, a full team!

....wait a second. What level are you?

20, why?

So it's too late for you to learn Water Gun, right?

No duh.

And when's the next time you learn a water type move?

Level 68.

WHAT. Into the box you go!

Aw....



Kjell, wanna go for a walk?

Sure.



Thanks, I had a good time. Here's a small chunk of my very basic backstory.


[Jan and Kjell reached C-Support!]



Where are we?

Contest hall! I'm trying to find the gym leader.



....well that was easy.

Narcissistic much?

Wow, that's it? No obnoxious side quests? We can challenge the gym whenever we want?

Yep! Let's get training.

And that's a wrap! I already started getting screenshots for part nine, so stay tuned!

Thanks, I had a good time. Here's a small chunk of my very basic backstory.

[Jan and Kjell reached C-Support!]
Every Fire Emblem game with the support system felt that burn.

Saving routes for later is a good idea, and like... Neptune could, in fact, be useful as a Vaporeon, even if simply because Vaporeon learns Shadow Ball and Ice Beam via tms, and Aurora Beam by level up (and will also learn Bite by default at Lv 29 regardless of evolution). It is annoying and nonsensical as fuck that they give you a Level 20 Eevee that's already missed out on its' first STAB, and has a varying chance of getting useful STAB soon after evolving, though. I cannot blame you for not using him. Also, I'll do you one worse than first STAB at 68:

Bulbapedia says that in Platinum, Vaporeon's first STAB Level-up move comes at Level 71. 71.
