yeah, about that. This run is a relaylocke between myself, @Robo ,@Umberoff , and @Bayporeon , and is a test of
- Catch only the first Pokemon you encounter on each route.
- dupes and shiny clause are in effect, though it's optional in case that thing you wanted to use died and you somehow lucked onto an identical mon.
- Pokemon must be nicknamed. Each person has their own nicknaming theme, to be discovered.
- if it faints, that bitch gone
- Relaylocke rules are in effect! Each person plays a predetermined segment of the game before posting and passing it off to the next person in line, going in order from Jimcloud -> Robo -> Umber -> Bayporeon. You may not continue playing after the point specified in the spoiler below. Each teammate will also fight one member of the Elite Four, in order. The group will collaborate to beat the Champion.
- Start through Rival battle #2 (Jimcloud)
- Rival battle #2 through Roark (Robo)
- Roark through Mars battle #1 (Umber)
- Mars battle #1 through Jupiter battle #1 (Bayporeon)
- Jupiter battle #1 through Fantina (Jimcloud)
- Fantina through Maylene (Robo)
- Maylene through Wake (Umber)
- Wake through Cyrus battle #1 (Bayporeon)
- Cyrus battle #1 to Canalave (do not fight rival) (Jimcloud)
- Canalave rival through Iron Island (Robo)
- Byron to Route 216 Rest House (Umber)
- Route 216 rest house through Candice (Bayporeon)
- Candice through Galactic HQ (Jimcloud)
- Galactic HQ through the Distortion World (Robo)
- The Distortion World through Volkner (Umber)
- Volkner through Victory Road (Bayporeon)
- No player is allowed to read previous updates, excluding this, the first one, until they have posted an update on the forum. At that point, they may read every update that has been posted beforehand (and are expected to react to it at the end of their update). Readers are asked to post replies that would spoil content for our players within spoiler boxes or using inline spoilers (
[ISPOILER] and [/ISPOILER]) though general content may be left untouched.
- Each teammate will specify two Pokemon at the end of their session. These two Pokemon may not be removed from the team for any reason until control is handed to the next person, unless they die.
- This run has also been randomized. The important points are that trainers and wilds have been set to random similar strength. Everything else is convoluted enough, so we kept this simple.
Got it? Good, because there will be a test later. Nah, but it'll become more clear as we actually start getting into it. Ideally speaking, each of us will probably make one post with our section, so if all goes well this should end up being... 21 parts long. Decent point to aim for, I think.
Well, chum, I guess it depends on what you define as an "adventure." I haven't done fucking anything quite like this shit.
I reached this screen and immediately realized the sheer gravity my choices possessed. To say we planned this shit is doing us a great credit that not a single bitch in this party deserves. We slapped this shit together in an hour and decided this is what we were going to do with our lives for the next, like, month.
We are allowed regrets, but I'll make sure none of these fuckers stop.
Now, while none of us are boys, not all of us are girls either, so this wasn't an easy decision, per se. Robo immediately leapt at the chance to be Dawn, though, and we couldn't in good conscience deny her that. Not when the alternative is the Bereted Bitch over there.
Now, we had discussed what we were going to talk the protagonist beforehand, but I hadn't quite heard it, so I assumed this was what was meant (which was incorrect, and I of course never figured out what it was supposed to be). I only know it was supposed to start with a P because the joke is that this asshole is Paulie and Polaris from Two Sides, but worse (thus the name of the run).
This was also discussed as an option.
However, we settled on this pure, brilliant name. Peepo! Peppy rappy Peppaboo. Peppin. Popper.
I reached this screen and my heart immediately leapt to my throat. I had no strong opinions about what to name this cretin, myself.
Thankfully, Robo and Bay shouted this simultaneously.
It was then amended. He is named StinkyP, for his P, which is stinky. "I guess he eats a lot of asparagus," were, I believe, Umber's exact words.
Thanks, but I think the thing that I'm going to discover about myself is that I should never let Robo have access to a save file of mine that could even potentially have a Geodude in it.
And probably that I shouldn't have let either Robo or Umber have access to my save file at all.
Bay's probably fine though.
Unless they're Geodude! Robo has already stated that if ever one of us catches a Geodude, she is going to go through the box until she finds it and murders it.
At least she's up front about it.
That foul scent of asparagus... it could only be one man.
It's not his fault, not really. His mom's the one who keeps cooking the stuff. A man's gotta eat.
That's all him, though.
I'm more and more convinced that Peepo was the right naming choice every time I see someone say it. It just sounds so pure. I'm filled with primal joy every time.
My legal name is gonna be Peepo now.
eeeEEEEEeeeeh. I don't wanna deal with his smelly urine. Free me!!!
None of you came here to see Platinum's fucking intro for the fiftieth time so i skipped it
Now, our options: Charmander, Treecko, or Aron. The choice for the four of us was easy as hell. Only one of these isn't a generic ass starter, and we're far, far too cool for this vanilla shit.
How laughably easy it makes the rival battle was an unintended consequence that I am nevertheless okay with.
Oh, yeah, we also randomized the trainer names and classes, so StinkyP here is a Chief now. He is the chief at having stinky piss that's for sure.
I feel real bad for the other three. The smelly piss joke bladder is gonna be completely empty by the time they get around to it, through no fault of their own.
On the other hand, they called him this, so I guess they get to suffer the consequences.
i literally do not give a shit you fucking bladder evacuation
let me CATCH POKEYMEN
why am i even here if not to catch some fucking men!!!?
...Well, nothing in the rules that says I can't scout my catch options ahead of getting poke balls. Let's just see what I could get.
I absolutely just used every last drop of my capture luck on this fucking unimportant encounter.
My naming theme! It's Ice cream flavors!!! And frankly I think my choice to name this boy Rocky Road is obvious. I have faith in Rocky to serve us well, especially early on when fucking everything has normal moves and almost exclusively normal moves.
ah yeah, prof, you'll have to forgive me here, but my daily fuck rations from my dystopian hell government were very low today, and I just don't have the spare fuck left to care one goddamn ounce about your bullshit.
git oudda my face.
It's a good thing Lucas has never gotten within biting range or i would have taken a couple of chunks out of his fingers
At long, long last.
I also got some of these (in case of emergencies) but not too many (in case my catches mess up that bad).
beach? beach. Bet none of y'all ever seen anybody go down here this early, huh.
Realized I forgot to mention it, but items are also randomized. This one is an interesting opener.
Albeit not, uh, useful at present. Maybe if we ever get a Galeno.... 2!!
First catch!!! It's- oh.
Hoenn? Did you come calling?
The coincidences, they begin to stack up. This is starting to look like a pattern here
get in the fucking ball you little shit-
I think it says a lot that of every fucking thing I've caught so far the one that gave me the most grief was a level 2 raccoon.
If I had thought of fudge ripple at the time then you would be speaking to a different and far superior Jimcloud, but I did not. I'm not fussed about this catch, though, because this baby has PICKUP YEAHHHHH
I was wondering, like, a million screenshots from now why I had 9 potions and only realized as I started putting these screenshots in that it was because of this perfect baby. Thank you, Cookie Dou.
we in the club like sup where the female combees at
Okay. Sure! Okay.
That's cool. Fine. Not like we went to all this trouble to randomize anything. It's cool! Yeah! Not like I needed a Vespiquen in a nuzlocke. Nah.
On the bright side, I know exactly what to name this thing.
the caps are mandatory.
What!? I coulda had a feebas instead of zigza-wait that would have been awful actually.
Is this, like? A nickname? Did she start calling him that and then everybody else picked up on it??
Basically what I'm asking here is if she's oblivious or cruel.
nah, fam. Show me.
yo what that's great
we randomized the catching tutorial though so I think this is just the result.
I have a weakness for free shit so you just barely get a pass.
I took this cap at a weird time but!
This sure is our next catch, huh.
Sure is cool how hoppip doesn't learn an attacking move until level 10... huh....
That all being said, I've always kinda wanted to use a Hoppip, so I'm gonna give Pistachio a god's honest try, or at least get the work of getting her an attacking move out of the way so Robo doesn't just box her on sight
I NEVER SAW ARENA TRAP PROC FOR SOME FUCKING REASON, MAYBE BECAUSE I WAS LUCKY, BUT AAAAAAAAAAAA
there are also fucking wynaut here I'm taking my ball and going to the route with hoppip on it are you bloody kidding me
Though it pains me to admit it, VANILLA is our best fighter right now. And he's going to skyrocket in usefulness when he learns Wing Attack here in a couple of levels.
I know now that Riolu has no fighting moves at this level,
but imagine the mortal terror that flowed through my veins.
note to self, switch in to Rocky Road on these ones. Always.
Cookie Dou I love you, my precious child
Flawless. A million dollar moveset.
Missed the cap but we in fucking business
That's tackle levels. Thank fuck.
Oh hell yes. This team is workin' it.
Whatever "it" is.
Oh boy oh boy first randomized trainer battle let's see what he's got
ah, she, sorry.
And uh. That's a Pokemon. To describe how this battle felt, I think I should describe the rough conversation we had afterwards.
Me: "Oh, first trainer battle!"
Someone: "what's she got??"
Me: "Uhhh I just beat her and I already don't remember"
oh thank god
i keep missing trainer names but its impossible to miss quality like this
uhhh which one is that
Oh fuck yes. We can now sell every awakening we ever get. The only way this could be better is if it was the no-attract berry.
i hope y'all know this part is like 80% grinding and 20% me skipping past plot details
this is sad though
the plot has finally released me, and lo, I must catch
a baby!!! These showed up in the last route, too, but I already had Hoppip there and I was a little disappointed because I would have loved to have one of these babies and now I do have one!!
If ever there was a fitting name for a Pokemon.
FULL TEAM FULL TEAM FULL TEAM
Hey bay? Get in fucking voice before you read the next screenshot.
I would like to hear you scream, because god knows I almost did.
Normally i just use tackle to weaken catches but you wouldn't catch me risking a crit on this baby for love or money
It's my baby! Look at her! Look at what a good baby she is! An infant! A small child whom I love!
It's okay baby you won't be lonely anymore i got you
her moves aren't great but she has an advantage. Namely, resisting Pokemon whose only moves right now are water gun or thundershock.
It's a pretty good fucking advantage at this point in the game.
Finally some good fucking STAB
11 is the magic level for a lot of my team's moves so it's the level I'm grinding to at the moment.
Just realized I could do this, and that there's no real reason not to fish in Twinleaf right now.
Cookie Dou has given me like half a dozen of these but thanks
Oh, a child!!
What a good baby.
...But now I gotta level him too so Robo doesn't fix her laser death eyes on it and murder it instantly.
thank god for this because he sure did poison somebody
full heals??? dont know the bitch
this is BEYOND infinitely better than relying on god damned WRAP
Nothing against Chocolate, because I love all of my children to bits, I just needed somebody to drop to level up TuttiFruti and there were no better options.
this was infinitely faster than the rest of the grinding up to now and I was very confused about it until I remembered experience curves exist
Sure would be NICE if I could have caught A PICHU on ROUTE 202 so I could USE THIS huh
this is always fun in a randomizer
I have NO IDEA what happened in that fight I did NOT expect Sentret to deal that much damage but here we fucking are i guess
sweetie, no. These won't help for emergencies.
they will buy a lot of Poke balls though
oh this one is unexpected
This was about the point in the run where the voice conversation was going like "okay so what do we screenshot??" robo, who has never screenshotted, asks of me, who has done a lot of screenshotting, and I mention "oh yeah since this is a randomizer you should screencap the trainer names because they may end up being funny,"
because that's definitely something I've been keeping up on doing,
very consistently up to this point,
that's the magic level, let's zerg down the rest of the content and finish this part so we can get to the fun bit
oh, um, okay. Are quick claws just like, magnetized towards schools? is that what this is?
thanks i fucking hate it
Alright there. I caught one (1) trainer class image at battle start. I can die satisfied now.
We probably shouldn't have set this to fastest text, in retrospect.
well that's terrifying!
stick to juggling, donna.
hey so i totally forgot to do this and i know robo isn't gonna so umber it is up 2 u
i have faith
not a lot of faith, but some faith
aw fuck i gotta do this shit
quick claw... 2???
this will make a fine addition to my collection
great can i leave now its 6:30 in the fucking morning
finally the moment we've all been waiting for
the dramatic confrontation, the piece d'resistance, the last battle of my part
it was uh
kind of a blowout im js
sorry y'all nuzlocke over we can't win against stinkyp ever again
okay that's that, time for me to hand the run over to Robo, meaning that I must bid y'all wonderful people farewell until then. But first, let me leave you with the Pokemon that Robo has to use in her next part (outside of the spoiler, to set the precedent for later when we can't read this shit until after we post)
Alright! With that all said and done, the Pokemon Robo has to use until she's done are Cookie Dou and Mint Choco. My blessed children. Keep them safe.
