    tfw a graduate scheme employer, who tells u 2 days ago to apply by 20th sept, is like "what are ur [career] goals?" in their form

    and u stare blankly because ur tired and want to play pokemon and these were meant to be ur days off after months of dissertation and career prep
    Hello I just want to say that u are all creative beans and that if I had the time and energy I would comment on everyone's run in the forums 💜💜 also I'm sorry for the past month where I didn't comment that much where I usually would, bad personal circumstances are legit the worst
    you ever recall an angsty song that talks about being paralysed by doubt and failing moral compasses etc, and instead of being like "yes this is perfect for my edgy story plans" you are like "yes this is perfect for the hidden Angst in my dissertation"

    ...okay that may be just me ;skgfhdfkjg i'm not actually edgy i promise rip

    me thinking of story ideas: "okay so sinnoh shall now be this massive tower with its own economic system and weird dimensional stuff, hmm am i missing anything"
    the actual pokemon who fight in pokemon battles instead of going on about economics all day because it wouldn't be a nuzlocke otherwise: "yeah excuse me what about us"

    At least they aren't the final boss of a certain fangame I've played; that has 5000 hp, is immune to all status moves and effects oh btw just for good measure has 3 times the Special attack of Mega Mewtwo Y. :)

    Oh btw, when a youtuber who made a Let's Play of the game complained "This is way too hard" some modders for the game said "Get good" (I know this because I watched the video where that happened)

    The worst of all, that boss isn't even the hardest thing in the game.
    god life really does decide to pull the rug under me whenever i feel happy and smiley and when there's been a positive development

    then suddenly it's "hey this thing was going well? lol you thought" and it feels like i'm hurting, and here like i may've been messed around
    aaaaaaa u ever just be flustered and so happ and listen to love songs and everything is cute and aaaaaaaaaaa

    dfkvhdfkjh i may sound drunk but i'm honestly not, i'm sober

    god of all the times to draw this edgy profile pic for myself and then i'm posting vague stuff about being so blushy and happy like. this is not me being quite as angsty as i thought i'd be 😂 😊
    me: *is trying to be epic and productive and work hard at my dissertation and my coding*

    my brain: "HELLO i heard you like LOVE SONGS let's get them in your head all hours of today, no you can't think about anything else, this song about pining WILL play" lkvhdflkgjvhdflkj
    me: *says i am not babey because of this new profile pic i drew*
    my sister, seeing the profile pic i drew and messaging me: "i see u are bby trying to be emo 😂😊"
    my sister is younger than me which adds insult to injury ;ppp
    anyway i'm off to listen to evanescence songs and write angsty story extracts ;p

    that moment when u realise u have to cut barry entirely from sinnoh storylocke shenanigans as he'd serve no real purpose in the plans and he's too similar to other characters, but he's a smol bean and u care he D:
    *goddammit* drayano

    renegade platinum is testing me

    watch me lose another pokemon to a crit from an epic coverage hard 'mon fight ;p

    i have written a song in this game's honour, it goes as follows:

    "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-"

    @Thirteenth i've literally just beaten fantina xD without any casualties which. is good because i had a really weird strategy to beat her and to my shock it actually worked

    but yeah the pokemon that i was having trouble with was aaron - drayano puts him in before hearthome with level 31 hellmons and i lost my rotom-heat to a crit

    OH YES I REMEMBER HIM....................... I'm so sorry ;;; the only reason I got through that hack relatively unscathed was cause I did nothing without looking at the documentation lmao he would've killed me if I'd gone in blind... also helped that I was playing with friends who picked up on things that I missed

    Most fangames/ROM hacks like to just Sucker Punch the player with "Gotcha!" battles it seems. I wonder why is that ? :psyduck:

    It's incredibly cathartic to annoy the Johto Elite 4 with an Umbreon

    Specifically a Taunt/Flash/Confuse Ray Umbreon with a Brightpowder >;)

    also finally none of my team died to the League in a nuzlocke yeeeeeeeet
    Welp, just lost my starter and my badass Camerupt to crits. They got saved by the BS Clause only to die like 10 minutes after haha

    Honestly, this pokemon rejuvenation fangame isn't worth blind nuzlocking anymore. The story and characters aren't great, the gameplay can be awful (the Yveltal's only 1 example) and without my starter, Crest, it just won't feel the same...

    The Empoleon-specific item DOUBLES all stat changes when it's held by an Empoleon. So for example, Swords Dance becomes a +4 attack boost rather than a +2 boost.

    It also doubles all reductions as well. BTW it's a reward for reaching a currently end-of-story area.

    @No-name thank u!!! i will bear this in mind the next time i end up coming back to play and do commentary of rejuv in its update (because being able to use gen 8 'mons without a switch >>>> my pride after getting bodied in one nuzlocke of this fangame 😂 )

    @Uberle came up with a badass way to beat her too and i shall bear both ur ways of defeating her in mind xD

    the Pokemon Rejuvenation fangame continues to show Balance by throwing a giratina in my face. i only had three badges by the time i fought it D: rip, my stoutland...

    ps: if i ever write a storyshot of this, i am doing everything i can to rewrite this arc's plot D: like... it's got potential! but there is a lot that could be improved

    When I played this part of the time the Giratina was the least of my problems in this battle. But that was way back in v10. So I'm assuming the game was changed to be even more difficult because…...…. reasons

    In the previous versions this battle was JUST Shadow Mewtwo. So you could reasonably heal-spam until it died of Hyper Mode. But the game was made to be more difficult because of ……….reasons.

    I have made an announcement on the forums about something that I've found about the fangame which my storyshot was based on, and why that means I'm quitting my storyshot now. I'm really sad about this, but I don't see what else I can feel comfortable doing. Thank you to everyone who read it, your comments mean a lot and I really appreciate all the critique and encouragement you've given me.
