Can this game give me a break please?
No.

Trading one ground for another. I'll miss my Hoover.
He comes back.

I haven't used one of these in ages. And I don't think ever outside of FR/LG. Could be fun to reuse.
DUDE. I had a Drowzee in a FireRed game, and he was AMAZING. Freddy was THE BEST. He could Meditate/Headbutt, he learned Psychic by LEVEL-UP, in general, Freddy was a god.

Did I then expect to NOT KO? I legit put the controller down at this and walked away for a bit. I was annoyed at the other deaths, but I was legit SO EXCITED to have a Kadabra. I couldn't wait to have an Alakazam. That thing is amazing. AND IT WAS GONE! I don't usually cry over video games, but I was near tears. I spent a long time training that thing up. WHY?!?!?
Because he's Gary you-know-what-goes-here Oak, and he drinks your tears.

OH LOOK PAGE TWO!

Alba Cortina: No apparently it doesn't like in the slightest. Which is "great fun"
Poopawman: I can get it back I hope. This update things don't completely fall apart which is good at least.
Electro: :P
He does, thankfully
I have used plenty of Hypno, just only in leaf green.
By the end his tears will be my source of beverage.


We are currently sorted by nicknames. Let's see what do I need to do?



That's right. Explore everywhere.



HM05 AHHHHHH AHHHHHH! Saviour of the Universe.



Cutty cutty boop a doop.



"Where are we going?" - hush now Amber.



And onto Lavender Town.



I love this TM's location vs where it is in RSE. It never made sense to me that Aerial Ace and Water Pulse were as late as they were. Just a personal thought.



My Ugly bee is better than yours.



Route 9 gives me first Ekans this time round.



I'm actually sad I'm boxing Ugly. That being said, my last attempt at this run made me love Ekans/Arbok a bit more, so I'm happy Nigel is coming aboard.



Oh...Ugly had cut.



Sorry Nibble. Have to do it.



Route 10. A V in Pokemon name, but a B in Species. We may see some of this.



A U? Great.



Lights on *clap clap*



Banana :'(



Kale is going to kick butt. I hope.



I accidentally took this while noting what route I caught everything on for my notes.



I didn't want to use Nigel at all... :'(



Kale started her training here for a bit.



Another of my favourite trainers. 2 x magnemite and a magneton. Made it real easy to get her and Hoover up some levels.



Ok, Jackdaw buddy. Y on my controller is NOT the button that is Select. Believe it or not, that is the SELECT button! #AccidentScreenshot



YES! Primeape!



Still a Pig Monkey



I trained here with Nibble for a bit, but it got a bit tedious.



Look Jackdaw Y IS NOT THE ANSWER



Well, isn't this fun. This guy is easier to train against.



HOORAY! Classy Cat Nibble!



This isn't the level I thought it would evolve. It's 26 not 28.



Still Hypnosis for Entropy, but Nibble is now Classy not scratch.



Just the final touch for Kinetic.



Did I overlevel? Yes. Did I feel justified seeing as I lost two of the pokemon in the last update? Yes. I once lost a box and a half in Black 2 and I'm not up for repeating that.



Choo choo choo! Come and join the conga.



I...I don't even know why I took this screenshot?



Today, on pokemon that aren't the right levels.



I might leave this. I want to ideally give it to Hoover, but rock tomb will do for now.



CUT SWEEP!



I'M FREE!



Ok, so with this, it's time to make a change.



The Seed pokemon is gone. Welcome aboard to the Ball pokemon. Kinetic is boxed for Umbrella. Species is now our order. I haven't played this today, so I need to decide a few things.

Eevee or Dratini (both would be good)
And of course, what areas am I going to next? I have Celadon to go to first (I plan to go back train Umbrella first) but then do I want to do the gym? Do the Giovanni/Tower stuff and head for Fuschia? Man, I have a lot of choices here.

Don't forget Electro, that I also have to consider the Species and hope for a good nickname ;) With that said... What did I go for?



Species order as of last update. Be warned this is very much a training montage.



This really didn't go quite the way I wanted. Was very switching and yawn...



Looks like I'm back with my old friend here...



YEAH UM NO?



JACKDAW! SELECT IS SELECT!



Still the ball. This sped up a lot more when Spark was got.



Alright, let's get back to Lavender...Walking all the way...



On the way to Celadon City!



Banana's spirit lives on through the beauty of Kale.



Time to get an encounter. Right?



Or I could fury swipes 3 shot. That could work too.



Alright what about here?



Cool. A flyer. Can't be added to the team yet, but...*Whirlwind*



But...I...WHIRLWIND!



New town! Sorting by pokemon.



Goodbye Hoover, Kale and Nibble. Welcome aboard to Nigel, Kinetic and Ugly. Which means, more grinding before team rocket. Makes sense to me.



Do I have enough for Dratini?



I think I will take Electro's advice (what I was leaning toward as well). Dragonite is amazing.



YES! GIMME!



Why couldn't you have had a slightly better nickname?



Sorry Kinetic but Ivysaur isn't quite high enough in the order.



If I miss Snorlax here I would have to get it on Route 12 if I wanted it. Or, I could not get an encounter for now...



These two have a rapidash and Ninetales...no thanks.



Cool, I can totally use...



Pants...



I was sped up trying to get this done faster...I accidentally encountered these two, and if you saw that team snapshot up there....



MEEP! NOT FUN! Right, swap Ugly for Entropy, hit Rapidash with sleep powder.



Entropy will now hit Rapidash while I sleep powder the ninetales.



WE KEEP SMACKING!



Hyper Potion and Smack it!



One down, got keep going.



GET DOWN AND STAY DOWN!



NO DEATHS! IN YOUR FACE!



To-tea-ly awesome.



I want that TM35 Flamethrower. Do I have enough?




Now I do. While I'm here...



Nigel will appreciate these.



I don't see me needing that Leer.



Time to walk back since I don't want to hit Saffron City yet.



AUTO SPEED NO!



Oh...um....I'm walking away from here.



That was close...too close.



I don't have Nibble...I know where I'm going I don't need Flash....



Defo...don't....need...flash....



See, I know where I'm going so well I got a blank screenshot...



Alright, I got lost...Take this Umbrella.



Back to fight the usual suspects, you know, the magnemite trainer, the butterfree trainer and the beedrill trainer.



And also kitting out Nigel with some new weapons.



Isn't she beautiful?



Cobra time. WHOO!



Oh, yeah, this was learnt. This guy must hate me now.



OOOOOH Team Rocket? We are coming.

Oh yeah. 71 screenshots and I made next to minimal progress. More will be done in the next update.

Yessssssssss!

Because both of the other letters are good.

NO DEATHS! IN YOUR FACE!
Okay, those kinds of battles are always fun.

I don't see me needing that Leer.
Fool! When you have run out of PP for other moves, you will realize that Leer/Wrap would have ended that battle in slightly under fifty turns, rather than the 80+ it ends up taking!

Oh yeah. 71 screenshots and I made next to minimal progress. More will be done in the next update.
Fun Fact: When I make mine, I use every screenshot I take. This has led me to limit my updates to about ten screenshots, otherwise I lose my mind.

It was tempting to go for the Eevee purely for a water type down the line, but there's plenty nearer the late game (and a possible free Lapras) so it made sense.
True both letters are good, but imagine the fun I could have had with a lower letter? A dragon on the team always. Such fun!
I may have overestimated them as they only did ember, but still fire is scary.
Lul running out of pp. You are funny Electro ;)
I'm doing a lot of screenshots for Emerald which I do to make the best story I can. With this run, it's just meh, that's important, I'll take a screenshot. If I hit near 60-70 I stop, and call that an update. Hence why one time this run I stopped in the middle of the team rocket base.



This is a good bunch of pokemon. If ill equipped in certain areas.



Or......no.



Why did I ever doubt Ugly?



Because you SHOUTED about it? In a CASINO?



THE STAIRS AREN'T EVEN THERE? WHAT DID YOU GO DOWN?



Now I can believe my character is 10...he pushed a button that not a lot of other people would push.



That grunt has been swallowed whole by the void. All hail the void.



Oh good, a base full of grunts to beat up. :)



I'm Jack. I walked down those stairs over there.



It's irony that the criminals don't like me doing criminal things to them.



Stealing from criminals!



The item my character didn't know he needed. Hooray!



To get an item I didn't know I needed cause I haven't been to pokemon tower yet!



From the void!



Oh yes!



I'm 10...why can't they just pick me up and chuck me out.



Now, I'm a bit incompetent but this...is....DUMB



Hooray for walking around a place that's likely very dangerous.



No, I just need to beat you to get easy healing and access back to the lift.



RUH ROH SHAGGY!



Floor four for forcing formerly fortified forty's to fortify? I was just trying as many for words as I could there.



Your plan was to get either a Kabuto or Omanyte. Neither that great. Neither that bad.



Uh huh.



HOORAY! My Arbok is better!



Hello Giovanni.



One route system. It's pretty simple. Wattson says that but at least his gym puzzle is a proper puzzle.



Van Bronkhorst?



Yeah, but um...I have Ugly.



UGLY SWEEP! UGLY SWEEP!



UGLY SWEEP! UGLY SWEEP! UGLY SWEEP!



World domination isn't that hard a concept butthead. Also, UGLY SWEEP!



Free present!



Why do we never return this to Silph?



It's either this or the gym. I'd rather do the tower.


Plot.



ZAP!



UGLY SWEEP!



Do you dig it?



Has he not heard of evolution? Or does everyone think all Cubone's are wearing their dead mothers head? And for that matter, what are they when their mother isn't dead, cause they aren't Cubone? Hmmmmm



Encounter time!



Taking it's time.



Curse + Sleep Powder = EZ Catch 4 me.



H is lower than G so unfortunately we got to box Entropy for now.



You are going to need some work.

Type coverage?

To be fair, everyone's shouting in casinos. Probably not the weirdest thing people have seen in Las Vegas.

I'm 10...why can't they just pick me up and chuck me out.
If you look at the sprite size, this ten year old is as big as a grown man!

That, or everyone is ten years old.

UGLY SWEEP! UGLY SWEEP!

Goodnight, sweet prince.

Two bugs, not great coverage. Hoping that may change in certain letters.
Alright, I'll give you that one :P
Conspiracy: Everyone is 10.
UGLY SWEEP!
Entropy will be back soon, especially being the Hypnosis mon and having that E.
It'll be fun.



Opinion can be switch grinded in the tower. I was going to train it myself but...



I want thunderbolt and shadow ball. Cannot afford either of those. Le sad.



Back in the tower we go.



Wasn't too difficult to get here. I have a team well equipped for gastly. Let's carry on.



So I have a strategy here. It's called...



Excuse me. I was talking.



Let's wrestle.



ELIZABETH! That's my plan. Sleepy times and then smack. No bones for you.



Ok, so this plan doesn't quite work the way I want it to.



However, it does work quite well. Butterfree 4 teh wins people.



TAA DAAAAAAAA!



So, seriously, what is a Cubone? I like the whole Baby Kangaskhan becomes a Marowak theory but, then, does the skull make it become a Marowak? WHAT IS A CUBONE?



To smack you guys to outter space. Blast off pal.



You guys are refusing him to leave. How is that talking?



Pokemon battles, pokemon competitions, pokemon contests...pokemon do make a lot of money.



Um...that's my line.



If that's what you mean by constant plot progression then yes. I came to save you.



No. You came here cause the game told you to. I'm on to you Fuji.



I'm told this is the home of a Flautist.



I mean, it would take a lot for pokemon to hate me what with how happiness works.



FLUTE TIME!



Ok, so Celadon gym or Fuschia City? Or even Saffron City?



Uh huh? Why is this here?



He's taking the mick out of himself. It's offical: He's a comedian.



Yeah. I may be a tad overlevelled what could go...



...wrong?



WHAT?



CONFUSION SUCKS! THREE TIMES IN A ROW!



Ugly sweep.... :(



Welcome back Entropy...I guess...Ugly....



Look, I just lost a Beedrill that was Ugly. You are also Ugly. No.



DOUBLE E SWEEP!

It's not the same...



Get up dumb dumb.



COME ON DUMB DUMB!



Sleepy time.



Take away the chesto, then back to sleep. I think we need to change plan.



Cause that was one confusion.



Nigel's intimidate should aid this battle.



Alright, now can I catch it.



GAME PLEASE!



REST is evil.



Does this wake them both up?



YES YES IT DOES!



NIGEL PLEASE!



ARGH! NO LOSING! NO DYING!



So, I healed, then kept hitting....Nigel killed. So much for Route 12.



Cool thanks Snorlax. FOR NOTHING.



Money now, questions later.



That one. Zappy Zap bring down the flying pokemon tm por favor.



Now, we are in business.



OHHHHH BUTTERFREE TRAINER!



Back at Vermillion without fighting a trainer, or having to go through a rock tunnell.



I'm here again. Yes and No.



I forgot to swap my party...take the free exp. Elizabeth.



Round 2.



Since I used the randomizer it's now a Haunter and can become a Gengar.



And out you go. Hello Shadow Punch. It'll do till shadow ball.



I'm training against you, because your Butterfree has NO DAMAGING MOVES!



Isn't this that much better? Would have been better had I not lost Ugly but whatever...



Cut was on Ugly. Fantastic.



OH EVEN MORE FANTASTIC!



I decided that my rules weren't clear cut. I said I can use an hm slave to get through, but I can't use it in battle. I decided to swap out my lowest mon alphabetically (Entropy) to make this as fair as I can get it. I would ideally swap Umbrella as Electric isn't good against grass, but suck it.



It's about time we fight a grass type.

That is cursed knowledge which man is not permitted to know.

Honestly, this is how I feel when I lose Pokemon. Like, all the laws of nature say that this would have gone fine, so why did it not?

Lol you're right, must be cursed information.
Especially when it's to a rando butt goldeen
It's cool to double E sweep, but just not as fun.
ZAPPITY ZAP!
Indeed. It's a pretty easy gym for me with this team.



Ohhhhh Erika....

See I'm doing this at the beginning of the update, how clever :P



This is the most annoying puzzle. I need cut to get in, and cut to get to her. FORGET that cut is needed at Surge, cause at that point, you aren't running a full team in a normal playthrough right, but here, you could be. BUT I DON'T WANT TO DROP A MON FOR CUT!



Most of these battles were Opinion. Elizabeth helped, but they wanted my Opinion.



Clearly never met Foongus.



I'm very opinionated.



There's literally an old man at the window, but yes, I was looking in.



Right...first off you're like 10.
SECOND: Erika is cool and all but Sabrina.
THIRD: Even if I say Sabrina, she's not Skyla. Or Kabu. No one disrespects Kabu.
Fourth: WHY IS THIS EVEN A LINE?
For the record, my favourite gym leader is either Alistair, Kabu or Maylene. Roxanne is close up there mind.




Healing before the gym cause paralysis is no fun.



Right then. Let's battle.



It was quite sunny actually when I was playing yesterday, so yes, it is.



*checks run is general* She's not drunk enough coffee.



Today, I will arrange your defeat Erika.



I...I just...are you listening to me?



If I have a dragon, I will use it.



Shed skin is the best. What's that you're paralysing me? LOL NO!



Nora, where'd you get that broom from?



NORA SWEEP! NORA SWEEP! NORA SWEEP!

It's still not the same but MAN IT FEELS GOOD!



Saving this, for reasons to do with the Elite Four. See if you can guess what it is?



And we are back to nicknames! So out goes Nigel, Nora, Umbrella and Opinion, in comes Hoover, Kinetic, Nibble and Kale. Entropy gets retaken back as the HM user becomes a main member for now, while Elizabeth just hangs tight. Remember, she's a Butterfree, a butterfly and an E nickname. She's hardly ever going to leave the team.



I already made an attempt at Route 12's encounter, curse you Nigel.
HEY!
Hush you. You're in the box. Anyway, we are making our way to Fuschia. I want to avoid Saffron completely till I absolutely must.



Might as well get the itemfinder on my way.



HOORAY!



I gave these to Hoover. The idea being that he will restore his hp, which is more than the rest of the team right now.



OOOOH ENCOUNTERS!



Come on, something cool.



A HORSEA? DUDE, I'VE NEVER USED ONE! Seriously, cause I can never find dragon scale. Now, remember I said that I used the universal randomizer to change the evolution levels for trades?

SHOULD I USE KINGDRA OR USE SEADRA? - I don't plan on doing postgame, so would it matter that I use this pokemon?



I am actually really happy about using something I've never used. I mean, I learned for my notes that it's the Dragon pokemon (same as Dragonair) so this is great.



This not so much.



I can't actually make an encounter in Cerulean City except for the Jynx trade and um...NO?



HOORAY! NEW ENCOUNTER!



Ok, so G and it's the Atrocious pokemon. Could be a good water type to use.



Or I could Poison seed it, and then have to swap into Hoover so Kinetic doesn't die, then miss 3 pokeballs on this STUPID SEA SNAKE!



Do we need all of these?
Quiet Kinetic. And yes, we do. I am not missing an encounter because of pokeballs....again.



The route above this isn't this one right?



I won't know till I look.



Better I get this encounter now, in case it messes with my elite four team and stuff.



I didn't know if this catch was legal. I had to go and check.



I have to check this isn't the same route.



IT'S A DIFFERENT ROUTE! OH THANK YOU! YES!



Sorry Nibble, but Carrot is a better nickname...according to the ruleset.



Ah.



Step 1: Walkthrough the forest.



Step 2: Mount Moon.



Might as well train while I am here.



Feel sorry for these trainers for about 3 seconds. I'm a compassionate guy you know.



THIS GUY HAS LEVELLED UP? SWITCH TRAINING IS NEEDED!



I was two levels lower...IT IS FOUR TIMES WEAK TO WATER! WHY IS ROCK THROW, NOT ROCK BLAST, TOMB OR SLIDE, KILLING IN ONE SHOT!?!



THE OTHER DUDE NEXT TO YOU HASN'T LEVELLED! YOU SUCK! LIKE YOU ACTUALLY SUCK HIKER! JUST WHY?!?!?



What was even the point in catching you?



GET BACK HERE THEN NIBBLE!



Nidoking?



Hoover can sweep right? Is that how this works?



Oh look, a cut tree I usually skip. Why yes, I usually don't care for this way to Fuschia, how did you know?



Funny you should ask, but Nidoking.



New route, new catch.



LOOK AT THIS! It's a rare occasion that dupes clause means nothing and I can show it off for the first time!
This playthrough! :P
Quiet Elizabeth :P



Get it, cause it's the dragon pokemon, and there's a band called Imagine Dragons. Aren't I original?



It's a H. Sorry Nibble.



This is actually quite nice. I get to use a new to me pokemon. I have used a Horse/Seadra/Kingdra 0 times in a playthrough. How fun.

Remember to tell me if you think I should use a Kingdra or stick with Seadra.

No, seriously, I can't think of anything.

Poliwrath and Kingdra! Man, you've got good water types!

I think Kingdra, but since you have two, why not both?

So I have a brand new pc now, meaning I will be hopefully at some point be in the process of moving my run over. Thankfully, shouldn't be too difficult :)
May also mean I can get these out at a quicker pace.

This was arguably the easiest gym yet (lies). Nah, haven't really had gym issues yet. Got Koga coming though, not sure he's easy. He always adds a tad bit of issue.
Nothing at all. The sunlight? A mirror? Too many apples?
NORA SWEEP!
It's going to be fun to get to use a kingdra for once!
Yeah, I was super annoyed. ROCK THROW! Like, dude...
Last run was what 3 of the pidgey line, 2 of the rattata line, 2 of the spearow line...What's it going to be this run?
Both could be cool. Seadra can't be that bad right? Might be fun to try both on a team.



Guess what guys? MORE GRINDING!



You get it. I may just stop bringing this guy up. Yes, may.



I've been trying to save the tm's but screw using WATER GUN to train.



Right, let's try you two, since I don't trust the other two.



YAY! This will apparently evolve Level 40+ due to the randomizer so could be fun.



While I am here, might as well finish the job. Look how cool Kinetic looks.



This looks a lot better to me. Not that I have any big battles to worry about for now.



Right, back to where we were. AGAIN. Is this the trainer I was up to?



Ah yes. It is. Let's get going then.



Guys, let me hear you: ENTROPY SWEEP!



Kinetic's first battle since evolution. This shouldn't be too hard right? (it was a very bulky pink blob)...



New route!



Just have to pass all these bikers to get to where I need to go! Onwards!



WHY!?! WHY?!? THIS ISN'T EVEN A PUZZLE?!?!? IT'S JUST PAIN!?!?!



This game just wants me to be annoyed at it!



Now, we all thought Zubat was bad in this challenge, but An O,X and W...This thing is never leaving the box.



Another new route. Another new mon for the Aviary.



This is an ok team member I guess? Never used one I think?



I don't actually remember taking this screenshot?



90% I was running here cause Elizabeth was poisoned. RUNNNNNNNING in the 90's.



New city, times for species.



YES I AVOIDED THE POISON!



Slight problem now is that I have three pokemon who are the dragon pokemon.



How did I solve this? Well...



Since Horse and Dragonair come before Seadra alphabetically I boxed Imagine.



COME ON! I missed the bottom route trainers, this girl, and her weirdly bulky does a lot of damage pile of vines!?!?



I have arrived to beat these missed trainers, and I lose a mon to a TANGELA!?!?!???!??!??!???!?



Nibble, you got passed around a lot, but I did love you. I'm sorry.



Welcome back Imagine I suppose.



Better switch train you using Imagine.



Dear future Jack. Don't and I repeat DON'T think OH it's only 7 levels it can win the fight? This was on me...I got WAY too confidant.



My team is a whose who of mons who aren't dead yet.



Come on show me an Exeggcute...



It's basically Hoover but little.



It's taunting me...



Why are his teeth gold? Is the warden rich?



Probably because...IT'S A SECRET! OOOOOOOOH!



I'm a winner! My prize is to end this run successfully?



Surfs up amigos!



Imagine what Imagine could do with this?



And you too as well. Slam isn't as great but Surf is an upgrade.



I am not happy. I wanted an Exeggcute. This is another dupe.



Strength is needed if I am going to win this game...I mean figuratively of course.



New encounter!



Le sad...



I want level 37 across the board before I fight against Koga.



These guys give nice exp for some of my mons, and I can get a catch here.



Look at all the fun. At least D is a good letter, and it can fly.



Three trainers makes this a lot easier than some areas.



These people were for Nora and to make some more money.



Kinetic and Imagine had a good spot to train here.



This guy is for Nigel.



Ooooh three magneton now? Nigel still ohko's the three easy.



I feel really unconfidant about this. Elizabeth and Hoover may have to be the best bets.

You get it. I may just stop bringing this guy up. Yes, may.
No, you're not.

This looks a lot better to me. Not that I have any big battles to worry about for now.
Silph co.

Guys, let me hear you: ENTROPY SWEEP!
ENTROPY SWEEP!

Now, we all thought Zubat was bad in this challenge, but An O,X and W...This thing is never leaving the box.
At least Bidoof has a B!

Nibble, you got passed around a lot, but I did love you. I'm sorry.
Aww. Nibble.

I feel really unconfidant about this. Elizabeth and Hoover may have to be the best bets.
Just a reminder that Koga's Weezing is level 43.
Dear future Jack. Don't and I repeat DON'T think OH it's only 7 levels it can win the fight? This was on me...I got WAY too confidant.

That isn't the truth...ok it is.
Silph Co. isn't an issue yet due to changes in team by that point meaning I have to grind anyway.
Entropy has to be one of my fave team mates right now.
Don't you diss Bidoof. Bidoof is amazing.
Poor Nibble.
It was...mostly fine.



Alright, gym time, and the first update on the new pc.



And behold the gym of lies.



So bite doesn't do much...
"He's a poison type against a psychic..."
Quiet me.



SABRINA'S GYM IS IN SAFFRON!



DAMN THIS GAME!



Get on my team you spookem.



Remember the trade evo change thanks to the randomizer?



Sit down and listen to my Opinion.



Urgh, this gym.



MWA HA HA HA HA!?



That is how the game works isn't it?



Do you not understand the concept of a gym challenge?



I SEE YOU!



1 hp my Vaporeon!



GET OUT!



That wasn't at all an issue.



Team Purple!



And that is the gym done!



EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!



No fainty from the poison now Elizabeth.



I made it.



So, Opinion needs to be deposited, time to change my no...wait...I never updated my notes when Opinion evolved...HE'S THE SHADOW POKEMON? I didn't save after I lost Nigel...Opinion should have been boxed after he evolved. I've technically cheated...Time to reload the save.



So we re-enter the gym...



We beat the first two trainers, this time Nigel survives, but...



Got to maintain as close to reality as possible.



Ok, no messing up this time.



We train you up all over again...



We get this out of the way...



I was on species so he shouldn't be here...



And there's who should have been here.



All this training in familiar places, worn out me, worn out faces....



Round 2: the rematch that's actually the first match.



That's one.



Welcome to how was the first battle so much easier... Minimize is a move I hate...



Shock wave...AWAAAAAAAAAAY!



1 left. That weezing.



WHAT? 72 in one shot? WITH SLUDGE? I know, it's a butterfree...Should have sleep powdered....



URRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!



One day the game will show me love.



Jigsaw and Imagine get put in the box.



2 boxes and a death means that Wendy, Opinion and Entropy are welcomed back to the team. I had to redo a whole half updated (not much but still) because I messed up...and it's now cost me Elizabeth. The original member. She's never been boxed as far as I can remember...and she's gone...

What do I do now?

Aww. I like Arbok. I used one in FireRed, and it was surprisingly good. Goodbye, Nigel. You will be missed.

And that is the gym done!
*Laughs in having read the whole update*

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
Yeah, that's nasty.

All this training in familiar places, worn out me, worn out faces....
And I find it kinda funny...

I warned you! YOU WARNED YOU!

Keep going. I believe in you!

Nigel was a champ, this whole run, what with the two original Arboks as well, has given me new respect for the pokemon.
Yeah, I was streaming for a friend over discord and was also waiting for us to play divinity so wasn't paying full attention, end result, I failed.
No more training please....
Yeah, you did. Yeah, I did. URGH! Back to scheduled feeling dumb.
I took this break of sorts partly cause friends asked to play wow, partly cause I was a bit demoralised after losing a mon due to realistically me not following my own rules. Also, I had work last week, that has to take priority.



Gotta grind Wendy up. Also, FLYING!



If I didn't mention them, would it be one of my runs?



What do you mean I forgot fly and had to back track? That would be silly.

Yeah, I forgot Wendy could fly till facing this man. Whatever :P



WHOO! TRIPLE DIRKS! (Game of zones, must watch for basketball fans)



Doesn't this look prettier and better to look at.



I cannot remember the last time I ever went this way in a playthrough. I think it was to train up an Exeggutor, and that was when I was in year 8 I think...that was a long time ago.



Why do the levels fluctuate so weirdly? There's level 30's here, and I get a level 10?



THIS IS LEVEL 7!



This is why this update took two parts to make... I get lost...SUPER BADLY!



Sorry Hoover but it's needed to get through here.



Anyone who followed my awkward runs on the old forums knows my love for Psyduck stems from Santana in Platinum. Who doesn't love that goofy little face?



" I warned you! YOU WARNED YOU! "

Here's me doing more reckless things...



Hooray for 8hp!



For the record, screw Articuno.



And stay down. "Jack, did we need to kill it?" No, but I felt like it, and don't know how to get out without killing it ok?



20 minutes the first time, a long pause and then 20 more minutes. HOOOOOOOORAY!



Why go to Saffron when I can get at least one more catch?



None of your pokemon surf? How did you get here?



Why do the sprites look so different to Emerald? Like, have you seen Alakazams?



I've not used Magneton in this game. Emerald sure, but never FR/LG



Two electric types is redundant but oh well.



Inside Saffron at last.



Pokemon name is gone, time for nickname sorting.



Entropy is the only one who stays.



Analogue and Hopper both need some grinding.



I'll never stop mentioning him.



Or him



Hooray! It's weird that it's standing up but whatever.



Hooray for more moon stones!



The one time rock throw gets a crit...



Welcome back Kale.



Awesome to get this move. Shame Karate Chop is awful. Might need to get Brick break.



I think I may still train still. I need to beat Gary, Giovanni AND Sabrina. I don't know if 37 will cut it.

Good Pokemon look good. True fact.

Dishonor on you. Dishonor on your cow.

The one time rock throw gets a crit...
I think that brings this man's kill count to 2? Which is more than most gym leaders.

I think I may still train still. I need to beat Gary, Giovanni AND Sabrina. I don't know if 37 will cut it.
Keep the good Pokemon safe!
