heyo so i recorded this like. a year ago. i meant to have a fun but semi-serious exploration of this hack, but then i got hospitalized A G A I N so decided yolo. or i guess yolt??

1. Catch only first possibly sentient monster on each route
a. Dupes - embrace variety
b. Shiny - embrace ur inner magpie
2. Name them. Unofficial biology theme, because that is one of three things im good at
3. If it faints, it dies. This does not apply to my opponents, apparently. I'm starting to think I'm cursed.

anyway yeah welcome to Kyro's first screenshot nuzlocke, composed mostly of stale jokes and nerdiness im so sorry

viOSOuT.png

gosh i loved this intro when i was a wee bab, playing my brother's old GBA on the way to school


w8kXy9e.png

everything's just as i remember it


hZ18RzN.png

H2U2lnO.png

ADlXAKd.png

since this hack is Pokemon Emerald Advanced, all of the files are named 'PEA x' in my folder labeled 'EAT UR PEA SOUP B4 IT EATS U'. My friend, with no context, saw this and just fricken lost it


jg3P9rZ.png

look i LIKE this frame ok??? it looks like scales. reptiles are COOL.


rEAJPIv.png

rXifsJG.png

this bit came in use bc technology has a tendency to,,, break. around me. a lot. real-life Newton Pulsifer here. it took me like five tries to patch it correctly.


cxAvGWk.png

3naqwlF.png

dream job


KNOeweo.png

i get this is a creator shout-out but i still find it fecking funny that the example is a manmade pokemon. it's like pointing at a domesticated chihuahua and going 'isn't mother nature amazing in Her creations'


nmpn1Cb.png

JLjOwyP.png

well now we dont have time to unpack all that


siVczqE.png

I like bandanas tho, so let's go with that


O9DHS4l.png

no im not done boring people away from this run yet


AtwAFhv.png

ABTOUoF.png

is this some very, very obscure joke that i'm a child being delivered by a large bird.


QMIAUR1.png

mHRepri.png

I3pckKx.png

you know when i was young i hadn't realized how weird it was the moving truck was there, but no roads. in all fairness, i grew up in Hicktown McRedNeckVille, located on land literally refered to as the Forgotten Coast, so i grew up with roads being nothing more than polite suggestions.


eSyIngK.png

nHoT8IK.png

jokes on you. i pulled all of the packing peanuts and bubblewrap out of the boxes and made a bed out of it.
your china is probably very broken.


rn4lmbq.png

hey quick question why the heck are there giant gaps between the floorboards


zsVtX05.png

NVfnN2s.png

those pokemon have two giant claws for hands. do not let them touch my boxes.


0kHhPpw.png

PwWRyW1.png

QEFfEUB.png

i forget which time zone i was in when i was recording this, so probably not


z7FsP7X.png

that's it that's the run, go home


8LFwWq2.png

we haven't been here ten minutes and you're already watching tv???


CDMLWca.png

wait what


h8QA1l0.png

VcsWtj4.png

BDp3tjH.png

ok but what was the report on??? was it propoganda? was there an accident? did pokemon rights activists take over the league and are currently holding my only pokemon father hostage??


bpaI1ns.png

uvYnVvv.png

yeah i know i astral projected in my dreams and had a conversation with him


V2srRgv.png

that's what you think. I am Here and Queer and Not Afraid to graffiti everything with environmentally friendly rainbow glitter.

good to know if i ever take up hacking again

hi lady im your new neighbor, a reverse vampire. i have a compulsion to enter any place i am uninvited.
... i still feed on blood tho.


fB8mhaC.png

HDYSqPS.png

evidently it is
"s s s s s s s s s

NcOvFqq.png

yeah i wouldn't want to deal with me either


sVFkNDC.png

what a liar, her son is right here


oxMg2M9.png

aNCmgSb.png

aw man he's the kind of dweeb that clears his search history! laaaaaame!


Y2GM4cq.png

JGBE50p.png

hey man your mother is so unobservant she didn't realize you weren't in either of the two rooms in your house.


nfwDxAP.png

s s s s s s s s s
s s s s s s s s s


8e4B7nM.png

no i wasn't hissing at you, i was vocalizing my evidentally morse code superhero name.


CDBbqgm.png

tM3oBbF.png

yeah that one surprised me too


KsM6wbW.png

fSa0sMK.png

he is impressively chill with astral projecting 20-somethings hiding in the bodies of children


fdR61ew.png

tyLOJhv.png

APaKPrw.png

i'd say "rude" but honestly i was the same way. I still am the same way, really. when your dad's in your chosen field of study, and also the only one you are aware of who studies the field in a thirty mild radius, you take advantage of unofficial lessons every chance you get.


LmTGHqU.png

WRKFSxC.png

VV149tg.png

are you saying he had a conversation with a person he hadn't noticed???


Hw4qrnV.png

I AM GOING TO READ ALL OF THEM.


kO3sbNa.png

A CHALLENGER APPROACHES


lTEWUE5.png

five bucks says it's a coffee maker


rwhacZb.png

hi, how does your bow stand up like that?


vVv10Y0.png

i am going to run towards it to investigate because no True scientist has a self-preservation instinct


J02tizA.png

child, that isn't a pokemon cry. that's the sound of a grown man screaming like a anime school girl.


rmwowtQ.png

sbkouQ5.png

FIvBhxx.png

i love how my character just stands there and watches. like, i've watched documentaries on hyenas. i ain't messin with those jaws, nuh-uh.


Rt0Dw74.png

wait i get a pokemon? totally worth risking death over


dQDdKbc.png

I like your Sakurai, but not your players. Your players are so unlike your Sakurai.
I'm really torn between Turtwig and Popplio. Both do well against Rock, but the former handles Water well. Hm...

@War Anvil: yeah, i was too! i just love them both so much;;; but i most recently used popplio in a few different games, so i wanted to switch it up

hello watch as i pretend to have anything approaching an update schedule

Pb3ODnh.png

Yes. Baby.
i've used fire-lizard a million times and i used socially-anxious-sealion on an earlier version
plus i mentioned how much i love my reptiles


00meHmc.png

oh god a FEMALE hyena?? no wonder Birch fears for his life. so what this is a baby. do you know what babies often have? A N G R Y M O T H E R S


45RxZfd.png

vtagR9r.png

MST6rPk.png

lucky i have this snapping tortoise to protect me
that baby did ONE damage what were its IVs/Nature holy crap.


AWVajxk.png

CLEWYtb.png

xvYzpyL.png

u make it sound like it mugged u
did. did the baby mug you, adult man???


OLPvP2L.png

nah im gonna wait here for the rest of her clan to show up and eat me for daring to attack a precious female child


pCL8yDq.png

actually no that would endanger my new child


GZr0t3F.png

ZFK0K4z.png

lOOK at this baby boy! So determined!
GILBERT!! you are no longer my youngest son!! there is a pixel-art tortoise that is your new brother!


vF7uI8T.jpg

... i dont think he cares.


Jaz3qtF.png

that can go one of two ways


DvHzNMx.png

wait, was,,, was this in question. i know Gramma was SUPER SUSPICIOUS bc she doesn't understand how blood types work, but. you are a scientist??? surely you understand that two A-type ppl can have an O-type child??


wM4uNZq.png

o45kOQf.png

bold of u to assume i was ever going to give him back


P3i8ULY.png

oh right! i didnt explain his nickname a few shots ago! Geochelone is a genus of tortoises. in my old books it included the Galapagos Giant Tortoise, which was what i was going for, but recently (in scientific terms. so like, anywhere from one to fifty years ago) that got all shifted around. now it's just the star tortoises, which i am more than fine with. star tortoises are so beautiful i weep when i see them. so pretty. so pure


FQxM2VZ.png

hpas7a0.png

i've been working at it for near two decades now Birch don't test me

pITRySx.png

R8XW27z.png

you do you little dude


gpEfWJ3.png

good job son!!!


3fNspsA.png

lord this route must be a bloodbath. dogs and hyenas fighting over a single prey species???


n0ZsUOY.png

GR4g8D4.png

good hecking luck


-insert lost screenshot mentioning how the sentret only recently moved in-
9MY7x0x.png

KxgnDLI.png

1oVRHub.png

hmmmmmm but salamanders mostly eat insects and/or little critters that feed on insects, depending on the species. if the sentret are eating all the plants the insects eat and so driving them off, you could have your relationship


E6bLsKT.png

oh yeah tell u miiiight want to avoid the local hyena clan for a while. they might be worked up. a bit. about one of their daughters being a bit hurt. whoops.


RHZoPiz.png

3M9U9mX.png

i was about to get offended and insist that a living creature's worth is really that it's a miracle and precious simply for being a part of this great and mysterious universe, but then i remembered this is a nuzlocke


No3FMsZ.png

fist fight me


0jmpnq5.png

aw! cute boy!


Dpkvl4W.png

not as cute as mine tho


xpzJJsB.png

i'm proud!!!


RaBvjLr.png

37AkIp0.png

i've been battling since i was four


vwp7Cb0.png

when it's Win or Death you get motivated real quick


mDLuYam.png

pNJh4Rv.png

oh?? ilu too, son TTwTT


h5kn0zo.png

kjuDgHK.png

z2Vo6ku.png

didn't we talk enough during my astral projection dream thing???


u7npch6.png

i mean i would be dead if i hadn't


lxWLTky.png

YJipyO4.png

yes!! i had one of those third-gen pokedex toys growing up and i loved it


3o7rosp.png

i was about to mock you for needing to specify, but i suddenly remembered you do have a second son
either that or there's just a weird kid hanging around your living room


Cd4yhGO.png

fYOUsHt.png

BpdpuFq.png

i mean yeah that makes sense with butterflys, host species and all. but salamanders??? so delicate.


CaQc9Vw.png

i wonder if they bounce


eFRZo0u.png

considering new pokemon are being released periodically for S&S, this is true for now


I5qwyTI.png

i advise giving the hyenas time to calm down, i beat up like five more of them grinding so they're even MORE out for blood


I5ETdBO.png

mom i'm leaving on a stupidly dangerous journey with my son and other elemental monsters to fight the government and ecoterrorists


IThddKx.png

he and his eldest son are the ones who encouraged me to do this


WB4NJ80.png

yes! meet your youngest grandchild!


bzXQB3M.png

then she made me switch shoes. not unusual for my mother.


qXB5ofb.png

P7hdbag.png

if i ever sell shoes, i am going to put slips of paper saying this in them


5DBmTS7.png

evidently mom's in on my morse code superhero name too


K0f42FT.png

unless the government or ecoterrorists kill me


yesuHfA.png

heck yeah supportive parents!!!

anyway it's time for me to head to work, so i'm cutting the episode here. have a nice morning/day/night!!

@TrueZero2: thanks! i hope i don't disappoint! i know im going to but i hope i dont, so that counts for something, right??

work wasn't as insane as it has been, so i got this one out quick

zT8p08r.png

first i check my babby boi's pokedex entry. it has many,,, interesting implications


But9Rs8.png

gasp!! a furry baby girl!


Vy17Ym5.png

i admire her tenacity


18ZnXFX.png

PORYu3z.png

it was the plan!! the burglars are captured bc they're to busy snuggling these babies


xM4jjYS.png

not,,, the most amazing nature, but i love her anyway

the lillipup line is based off terriers, hence the name Terri. they're pretty fun dogs to work with, but I advise checking their prey drive before even considering leaving them alone with other critters (especially smaller ones) - most were bred to hunt down and kill vermin.


BynD867.png

another furry baby girl!!


XzpnIpr.png

oh my god Geo plz don't murder ur new sister before she even joins the team;;;


ScSdE0v.png

s C R E A M

if you've never heard a prairie dog scream, go look that up real quick to know why i'm giggling madly and then come back. or get distracted by more cute animal videos and don't, i would be a hypocrite to be offended by that


pMw45u3.png

i love pickup, but i am going to need to keep u FAR AWAY from special attackers, sweetheart

her name comes from the scientific name of the black-footed ferret, which i always thought furret resembled - Mustela nigripes


yHgCRtt.png

oh?


l9Cvkse.png

o h ?


OXnPwRj.png

p1ldWuM.png

my dude,,, ambulatory fish are a thing but. a luvdisc. forgive me for doubting in this case.


8H2Hwkq.png

a fuzzy boy!!!


HbUp2vX.png

i shall name him-


CdERonz.png

...... i want to be mad because i hate puns and hyenas aren't even dogs, but there's just this horrified respect that anyone could fit this many puns in 27 words.


DZqFUff.png

anyway! Crocuta! Crocuta crocuta is the scientific name of the spotted hyena. Mighthyena are more brown hyena in looks, but Crocuta is just fun to say.


Anyway training time!


5CrWvGy.png

Nigripes makes her opinions known


PYyrh9h.png

flGipxc.png

god could you imagine in bureaucracies worked this way?


RWOo52y.png

first trainer battle! i believe in u bby!


4QykQ8R.png

i believed so hard she critted


OPs3asx.png

i just realized that i would do horribly in these games if i didn't have a small pixel avatar, bc direct eye contact makes me v v V uncomfortable


bHgcZCp.png

anyway this kid was no challenge and now my dog really can lick someone to death


ziha2wd.png

do u have to wear orange to avoid being mistaken for a pokemon and attacked? ..... suddenly im wondering if those "wear blaze orange while hunting" rules do anything for colorblind people


bNl2R1w.png

well in universal terms, yes. eighteen years is relatively recent.


2I3DymJ.png

don't be a coward, pick fights with everyone


DKkgWOs.png

u wat


QBHkwvH.png

X8GCw38.png

oooohhhhh cheek pouch


LkxfHqn.png

tell me about it i go outside for five minutes and i'm ready for a ten-year nap

granted, that's mostly because it is 106°F/41.1°C out right now, but still


LKGlTBI.png

cute round virtual duck child!

p6Y40PK.png

hey funny story time! the first time i read this in Emerald, i was super moved by how deep it was, so my seven year old self ran on down to the canal's edge to check. for a second it was 'why can't i see my reflection', and then it was 'oh there's a really big alligator like an cm under the surface that's why'. and then i backed the heck up and went on home


fjFCP4E.png

god i love florida


f5Js2FM.png

oh so Norman and Sidney swapped places?


7Sjo7bk.png

amm0obO.png

that does not bode well for my nuzlocke


KEuXWxr.png

sure, why not


k9oBjSN.png

for me? straight to the Center


8q4rQhP.png

i hope there's no surprise rival battle right outside the gym then


enAEcN3.png

35j4cK6.png

Sidney u edge lord


JIfCbcs.png

yes. fistfight me


zvJfFw4.png

he has literally never mentioned you in any way, shape, or form, ever


gAklXXK.png

Cekx8Ex.png

my father doesn't know my life


uzWIOO7.png

uh,,, that's certainly one way to put it. i like it. it implies i did not technically steal and then get permission anyway borrow with zero intent to ever return my son


6ArDkRt.png

p5KQZLn.png

look even the babies have enough jaw strength to crush bone, i am not going to fist fight one willingly either


1SGSCo0.png

GCaKblQ.png

it's Wally! it's my boy!


LmUfHJt.png

Vk5vNIO.png

ukum3E9.png

2ZX2cp6.png

yeah i met your mum. she seems to have unrealistic expectations on how 'easy' it is to find a rare, teleporting pokemon, so i don't blame you


zVME6dL.png

erLzfJE.png

say no more! i shall take my baby brother under my metaphorical wings. i will teach him everything i know.


moPwn2R.png

8DLhezm.png

sss. i shall shorten it just for you, little brother


IuuwOqX.png

excellent. now to start with--


11tU7Ic.png

---so in short i do NOT advise skipping the soccer safety equipment unless you want to show up at your doctor's with a dislocated thumb, grade one concussion, and missing two teeth--


IiywTVc.png

--and this is a fun time-passing song i learned at 4H camp. Ahem. bAAAABY SHARPEDO, DOO DOO, DOO DOO DOO---


mxYxb3Z.png

---and now you know the quickest way to get a national ban from the YMCA.

Oh right, pokemon.


of3AKMm.png

hey heck that!! you and your partner choose each other!! you think my mother approved of half of my pet choices? the rats in particular got her going, but their mother had abandoned them and i wasn't just going to leave them to die---


nOpq53K.png

tIwWXrA.png

oop! go time!


cY715tr.png

actually maybe don't, that Ralts looks really frail. just throw the ball-


6UmMccS.png

i- - -


3k43Grc.png

um. we could. maybe? try again? you aren't nuzlocking, right???


hC1kLu6.png

no!! precious child you deserve kindness and attention!!


UcmooA5.png

4XxNrGb.png

aw no bby don't be sad let me give u a hug


ZQs4rf6.png

i mean i taught him a lot of probably useless stuff, but he didn't get the ralts his parents want for him


pUZ1d7w.png

haYfKvx.png

actually your hyena did


yyl5GDD.png

no! you are pure!! do not blame yourself!!!


0cLY67a.png

Tap0lVO.png

7I2VwQ0.png

can i go catch him whatever pokemon he connects with now?


JyNkxVR.png

that works too


z7OrLcF.png

im1Tp4Q.png

he ripped a baby ralts in half?? and he didn't even eat it.


mkQdyj1.png

fPRuCIa.png

child heck your parents, i shall fistfight them for you


hp6OPbT.png

bMX02GC.png

E5J86Yw.png

hm. the plot of this game isn't finished yet, but so far the symbolism of the partners match. in vanilla, a sick boy gets a frail pokemon, and they both grow stronger than anyone believed they could together. in Advanced, a shy boy everyone expects great things from gets a tough pokemon no one really expects much from, and together they shake the status quo UP


MzpZW7s.png

k26l7IM.png

Sidney gives the normal "only when ur stronger will i battle u" thing, but this tidbit of info is useful. i like it. when the first gym doesn't have a type any starters are weak/strong against, it encourages fairer starter selection


nTbhVgI.png

i don't know you tho


seMBEkt.png

UJgaxxJ.png

fIGHT ME


6Rc8EaC.png

TGy5Abj.png

Kg7sHcd.png

E5LpHel.png

you mean you expect him to get horribly maimed by the wildlife and aren't doing anything to help him?? A+ Parenting right here


4tbDzt6.png

ur husband's face upsets me


ftI58cB.png

huh. that's a better attitude i guess-


ieTMo3b.png

hs7ZwzB.png

hahaha wow have yOU got some karma coming your way


sxjcuNZ.png

VCxPRSV.png

oh yeah, this is the 'everyone expects great things from him' thing i was mentioning.

although now that i'm typing this out, it occurs to me that it kind of makes sense they would want him to have a fairy type, summoning giant dragons.


Fn90sAL.png

you're excused

by which i mean leave my sight


dKqKFPs.png

it's true, you never see non-trainers wearing bandanas


yMXoycn.png

NO!!! only my little brother Wally gets to shorten my codename!!!

zd4ZtLA.png

and so i named her so! Danainae are the milkweed butterflies, such as the Monarch. and others, but im biased towards the monarch. for some reason getting up at four in the morning and going out under a bridge in near-freezing weather to capture and tag the migrating butterflies did not turn me off of them

TMs are nice here.

This Egg Vendor excites me. If you are not purchasing any, would you happen to know what they are and be willing to tell me? I'm very curious.

Be careful. I trust your wisdom, but I refuse to trust any gym in any hack. Guard yourself.

@Lumaeus : hmmm i can't remember if i got an egg in this run or my previous, but i'm pretty sure i remember any pokemon that hatches from an egg is a possible result.

It's super cool that you get to talk with Gym Leaders now. I'm a fan.

Biggest thing tho? That art. That's a stunning representation of your team and I am here for it.

But at what cost?

i refuse to do anything immoral for you. illegal, sure, but not immoral. i have standards.
Coincidentally, big business also makes this distinction, but with the opposite resolution. Though they're flexible on that end too.

critical hit Fire Spin
The second time? For Fire Spin? You must be subject to some sort of curse.

why are you casually chatting with big business presidents????
I'm sorry, SSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, but your dad is either a bootlicker or a full-blown member of the oppressor class.

this hack doesn't go that far yet
This is an incomplete hack? What's the plan then?

look i have to make the distinction bc some laws are just stupid, especially here in florida. just look up 'weird florida laws' and you'll see what i mean.

i am indeed cursed when it comes to fire, but that is a very long story that i doubt anyone is interested in

dad no ;-;. also i have decided you may also shorten my name to SSS if you would like, like wally, bc you have strong comrade vibes

well, i'm hoping by the time i get close to uploading everything i've done there will be another update to the hack, but if not i'll throw this into Hiatus until i can finish

aaaaaa a good daughter!!The remoraid line holds a special place in my heart bc of that time i let my dad play on my gameboy and he, an ichthyologist/marine biologist, got very upset the archerfish evolved into an octopus.

Toxotes is the genus archerfish belongs to, named after ancient Greek archers.
Lonely is,,, not. ideal.

don't worry bby i'll make sure no one eats u


y268QNY.png

Cyprinus is the genus of "typical carps", which includes the amur carp (koi).
Naughty is. hm. could go either way - more murder power won't mean crap if he gets hit with a special electric attack.


DRJXPUw.png

also some areas, like route 106, now have dark sand areas.


TIxQ7si.png

4Gylcam.png

a-ah. i guess that couple was,,, not. pleased...


SK5Zj8G.png

you are much heavier than i was expecting. i'm not sure why it surprised me, anyone who's been buried in sand knows how heavy it is.


ANVKxFO.png

the name here is a bit of a flex unless you've ever dealt with ghost crabs. i didn't even intend the name to be a pun, i don't like puns, but i couldn't think of a sand-dwelling beach creature more likely to attempt to EAT YOU for no apparent reason. anyway Ocypodinae is the subfamily containing those angry little blighters.


IyJ0AN2.png

my instinct is to make another H'yu, the Gay Sun, joke here, but i should probably refrain from making cracks that only two people here get

I know, right? If it weren't for the threat of rabies, they'd be the perfect animal!

That's very cool gym design, but I'll wager it was a bit repetitive. How strong were the 'tads?

@Lumaeus : well alrighty then!!

see, i never remember a time i wasn't afraid of fire. you'd think there was a definitive point where i got this phobia. maybe when i learned my aunt burned alive. maybe when my house burned down. maybe when the forest outside my town burned down. maybe when my cat nephew died in a fire. maybe when my older brother terrorized me with a home-made flamethrower. maybe when i found myself literally on fire, numerous times.

nope. just. ALWAYS afraid of fire.

and, like animals and small children, fire can sense fear. this element just,,, follows me. everywhere. heck, last week the card reader at work burst into flames after a lightning strike. if there's a way to die involving fire in a video game? i will find it. i gotta drive to the city? the forest between us is having a prescribed burn. one time i was cooking butter beans and suddenly everything was on fire.

so i complained to my mother about it, as one does, not expecting anything more than a sympathetic pat on the head. but she got all weird?? all she would say in explanation is "our family does not have a good history with fire". now for my mother, who is not superstitious at all, to say something like that? suspicious.

so i considered what little she would speak of when it comes to my maternal family. immigrants that settled in the Appalachians to become coal miners and moonshiners. neither are jobs you want to have fires in, and neither are really healthy for the environment. so two guesses as to what happened:

1. someone died in a fire/explosion caused by an ancestor of mine, and maybe it was covered up and the spirit is haunting us until it finds peace, or maybe the person was related to a witch who vowed retribution on this blood line, but either way now my family's cursed

2. some area sacred to Nature was destroyed by a coal or moonshine fire, again caused by an ancestor of mine, and now we're cursed because the Earth has a long, long memory and very little sense of mercy

either way i'm losing



@TrueZero2 : thanks!



@TheTRUEgge : thank you!!

nice to meet you too-

ooOOOOOH u wanna throw hands?? bc i will. my outfit is as comfy as i could afford.

DO YOU WANT A LECTURE ON THE STUPIDITY AND HARMFULNESS OF THE 1% AND THE PRIORITY OF PRACTICAL AND COST-EFFECTIVE CLOTHES WRITTEN BY AN ANGRY GREMLIN THAT LIVES IN A HIGH-POVERTY AREA AND ALSO RECENTLY A DISASTER ZONE???

BECAUSE YOU'RE THIS CLOSE TO A SMACKDOWN. BOTH VERBAL AND PHYSICAL.

lmao?? this poor, delusional fool? no one is stronger than the ocean. you can only love and respect it and pray it respects you. (if it loves you, then it will not allow you to leave.) people who believe they have conquered the ocean have a habit of dying horribly in oceanic incidents.

should probably get my badge now before a swarm of lobsters rise from the ocean to devour you for your impudence.

look not to @ anyone - actually that's a lie, i'm perfectly willing to @ people who destroy the environment and claim everything is FINE - when your sins are so horrific the moon brings to life an oil spill to haunt your cities, nature is probably not very happy with you.
