emerald advanced! not gonna lie, i haven't really seen much of this hack, but i do really appreciate the many, many changes that have been applied to the game!

and it looks like you're having a somewhat of a smooth ride so far! sure, there have been... a couple of deaths, but hopefully the amount of them won't grow too high!!!

@Nimbostratus : it really, really is. i get that it's a wip, but i'm still baffled by the lack of runs.
thanks!



@songwithnosoul
I admire the hacker's attempts to make sense of some of the story's less plausible moments (even considering Archie and Maxie are fools to begin with).
it really is fun watching those poor, logical hackers who want a good story attempt to wrestle pokemon games into making sense

Love this running joke.
well that's good because i plan on driving that thing into the ground

Yes, this is the appropriate reaction to being blessed with a Totodile.
exactly!! all my friends love cyndaquil and i'm just sitting there like ",,,, but baby croc"

Fantastic reaction. Thanks for sharing!
hey it's very rare us biologists find people crazier than us! well, science people anyway. those theater kids own crazy and i admire them for it.

Wow. That is so powerfully poetic and also terrifying. Well done.
aw thanks! it's really hard for me to find the words for intangible sensations, so i'll sit there for ages picking and choosing the right words to convey the feeling. nice to know it's appreciated!



@Squiggy Azalea : welcome to the craziness! EA is criminally underrepresented imho, i'm hoping someone more popular than me makes a run of the hack to get it support.

the fourth? not so much. partially because i looked at the pieces, went "a friend crustle!!" and spent like half an hour trying to make it work.


anyway i should go grind before i fistfight a geologist. one should always be cautious picking fights with rock people, they're horrifying. like, i've seen them just,,, pick a chunk off the rocky lake side, pop it in their mouth, swish it around, then spit it out and declare "that's a bone" ??? like?? i'm sorry that lowly fossil isn't good enough for you susan, i forgot you only eat the finest gneiss.

wait wait wait. you know what else is very picky about which rocks they eat? chickens. i've discovered the secret. all geologists are actually just numerous birds in a trench coat. everything makes sense!!! everything---

... hah. but life goes on, as always. it's one of the hardest and most important lessons you learn working with animals - mourning does not always mean stopping. like with my Hufflepuff - her litter was abandoned by their mother less than 24 hours after birth. those kind of odds... aren't great. her four other siblings died in my arms before they were three days old. i buried them beneath the pear tree. but i couldn't break down, because there was still one little kitten left that needed me at my best. for those first weeks - the time where her survival was most uncertain - i wouldn't even sleep unless someone i trusted was looking after her.

She is currently a little spitfire at one and a half years old who sleeps clinging to me like a koala, so i'd say everything was worth it.

This Pokémon is trying its best to fight the good fight.

This is four too many. You realize this is four too many, right?

Crocuta's loss is a tragedy, but Torterra is the best kind of compensation there is. Especially if said Torterra is willing to have a pool on its back just for Lanturn.

I like your Sakurai, but not your players. Your players are so unlike your Sakurai.
Poor Roxanne and her physical inability to pun. She's no Brock that's for sure.

I'm terribly sorry for Crocuta. Sometimes having Sunflora shine like its namesake isn't worth anything...

...... i'm so sorry, buddy.
That's a lovely tribute picture, as always, but ow. So not fair.

it's one of the hardest and most important lessons you learn working with animals - mourning does not always mean stopping. like with my Hufflepuff - her litter was abandoned by their mother less than 24 hours after birth. those kind of odds... aren't great. her four other siblings died in my arms before they were three days old. i buried them beneath the pear tree. but i couldn't break down, because there was still one little kitten left that needed me at my best. for those first weeks - the time where her survival was most uncertain - i wouldn't even sleep unless someone i trusted was looking after her.

She is currently a little spitfire at one and a half years old who sleeps clinging to me like a koala, so i'd say everything was worth it.
Oh. That's really tough. You did a great thing, fighting those odds to even save one of the litter. Hufflepuff is lucky to have you - and you lucky to have her, I'm sure.

her boldore sets up sandstorm but. yknow. giant world tortoise.
Yup. Very smooth way of shutting down her sandstorm strategy. Especially since grass/ground is not a great type combination for a rock-type gym leader to face to begin with...

Again, the badge art is such fun. I like your modified version of Lophii's design and swimming pool on Geocheleone's back. Geocheleone is a real team player!

i still think rock tomb should be more dangerous than rock slide. i know rock slides are dangerous, but? it's literally called rock tomb that crap is OMINOUS
That is a really good point. Localization team dropped the ball on that one.

i'm still angrier about that one lady who didn't let me have snack time in preschool because i had a speech impediment
I'm angry on your behalf now, too! What a cruel thing to do to a child!

it might sound stupid but stance can really help with self-confidence. people tend to treat you with more respect if you walk purposefully with your head up, shoulders back, and chest out. fake it till ya make it.
You're giving some excellent advice here!

@Squiggy Azalea roxanne has strong disaster gay vibes and honestly me too

geo is a good son and he deserves all the love

no, no he did not. when i started this hack i was all "yay Z-nogyrop buffed all the derp pokemon so they're useable!" and then that sunflora happened and i about-faced on that opinion so quick i got whiplash




@Nimbostratus : crocutaaaaaaaa ;n;




@Lumaeus : oh i am aware. no one outside of, idk, professional headbutters, should have enough data on their personal concussion recovery timeline to make a chart. it's not like i seek them out?? frankly i think the universe is upset i flipped fate off and actually survived to adulthood and is halfheartedly trying to correct this.

Yeah, giant world tortoises carrying you and your friends around does add some joy and wonder into this cruel world!!




@War Anvil : i was very happy she couldn't pun, but i am sympathetic to her being bad at something she wants to be good at

he will be missed. it's irony really, when i saw that sunflora had been buffed i was super excited. i'm not anymore




@Genesis : -weeps- he was a good boy




@songwithnosoul :
Ooh, nice. Looks like this is a gym puzzle you're really into.
i! love!! jigsaw puzzles!!!


Sounds expensive!
fair point. i hope the mosaic bricks are made out of legos or something else easy to put back together


Always love your scientist anecdotes.
at this point in my life i have accepted my role of preparing people to handle scientists


What? Crocuta? No. Does not compute. That's not right...
That's a lovely tribute picture, as always, but ow. So not fair.
i sat there staring at the computer for a solid five minutes after he went down. then a year and a half later this episode was late because i didn't want to draw his farewell portrait. i get attached to these pixels.


Oh. That's really tough. You did a great thing, fighting those odds to even save one of the litter. Hufflepuff is lucky to have you - and you lucky to have her, I'm sure.
yeah... i'm an avid supporter of people volunteering at animal shelters/rehab centers/etc, but i'm first to warn want-to-be orphan fosterers that they are likely going to loose one at some point if they take in kittens/puppies less than a month old, and they need to be prepared for that. not that you can be prepared for a charge dying, but you can at least accept the possibility.
we're lucky to have each other! i love her but no one else would put up with her probably, lmao - i socialized her as much as i could, but she still has some of her parent's ferality in her blood. she kinda listens to me bc i'm her mamma, but anyone else? good luck


Again, the badge art is such fun. I like your modified version of Lophii's design and swimming pool on Geocheleone's back. Geocheleone is a real team player!
thanks! i always saw lanturns as anglerfish + dolphin hybrids, so he was fun to design. by which i mean i accidentally traumatized my mum when she watched me draw a cute dolphin and then add anglerfish teeth


I'm angry on your behalf now, too! What a cruel thing to do to a child!
whenever someone asks me why i have a beef with the american education system i ask them how long they have, because i don't have a response, i have a fricken thesis


You're giving some excellent advice here!
thanks! i try and share advice that i wish people had given me earlier in life!

ups and downs, man. ups and downs.

ok? thanks, but i think a lot more than my eyes need shielded. can you tell me where to get,,, idk, a gas mask or something? and protective clothes that cover all exposed skin but WON'T give me a heatstroke?? i have plenty of protective ear muffs, so don't worry about that.

these goggles won't protect a lot of things, brendan

hey quick question? why is the new skin paler than the shed skin? i think something might be wrong with this lizard. i'll adopt him regardless, but i'd like a vet to check him out

Dipsosaurus dorsalis is commonly known as the desert iguana! i remember thinking i was very clever with the name at the time, but for the life of me i can't remember

naughty is pretty good, even if i don't like defenses lowering stats

i welcome this son in the hopes that he will not one day kill us all.


iuy6jFM.png

forgive my skepticism. i might love squid, but i am painfully aware the reason so few deaths are attributed to them is because they don't usually leave much evidence behind.

seriously, you want nightmares? look up what happens when a hungry swarm of humboldt squid get ahold of a human who dares to trespass in their hunting grounds. then take into account they usually prefer to drag their prey deep into the abyss before working as a team to rip it apart and devour it. i'd take a shark over a diablo rojo any day.


8h6FUGx.png

Dosidicus gigas is the scientific name of the humboldt squid. aka the reason i would be very hesitant to night-dive on the west coast.

and he has contrary!! that's always fun to work with!

Amargasaurus cazaui was a sauropod that had massive spines that could've been connected in a giant sail all down its neck and back.

Lax is firmly 'could be worse' territory. aurorus has higher sp def than def - but not high enough that i'm exactly happy with a drop.

always wondered about that really. it makes a bit more sense now that i understand Dark is 'Evil' in the original Japanese (i used to be very confused as to why electric wasn't SE), but?? bug??? fighting makes sense, superheroes punching villains and stuff. fairy makes sense in a "fight fire with fire" way, the fae are infamous for their cruelty.

but.

BUG?????????

the best i can come up with is it's a joke that even the bad guys are afraid of something?

I hope that this list of concerns is not based on personal experience.

Yeah. I can see, again, the hacker trying to make the game make more sense, but they really could've gone further with it. Oh well.

You are a very attentive Trainer! I like that about you!

Dipsosaurus dorsalis is commonly known as the desert iguana! i remember thinking i was very clever with the name at the time, but for the life of me i can't remember
It is a cool name!

that's ok, i'll do it. i'm a Scientist.
After everything you've said about scientists earlier in the thread, this makes perfect sense.

Yessss! Badgers are dangerous. Not to be provoked or trifled with or dismissed as pushovers.

i welcome this son in the hopes that he will not one day kill us all.
Well, that was a little less enthusiastic and more ominous than usual. I wonder what's up with that....

seriously, you want nightmares? look up what happens when a hungry swarm of humboldt squid get ahold of a human who dares to trespass in their hunting grounds. then take into account they usually prefer to drag their prey deep into the abyss before working as a team to rip it apart and devour it. i'd take a shark over a diablo rojo any day.

The horrors of working with the public. Even in a fancy lab like this.

yes it does, this is a video game
Yeah! Get genre-savvy, dude!

always wondered about that really. it makes a bit more sense now that i understand Dark is 'Evil' in the original Japanese (i used to be very confused as to why electric wasn't SE), but?? bug??? fighting makes sense, superheroes punching villains and stuff. fairy makes sense in a "fight fire with fire" way, the fae are infamous for their cruelty.

but.

BUG?????????

the best i can come up with is it's a joke that even the bad guys are afraid of something?
It's plausible. Way better than my best guess, which is nothing.

i bet this is angsty goth poetry meant to make me cringe, but it won't work. i'm firmly in the camp of "harmless analysis of emotion and self expression/awareness is far better than repressing everything in the sake of being culturally appropriate"
*thumbs up*

huh i was expecting something a lot worse- wait what
Ah, I see. The lengthy poetry was a distraction. Pretty good idea, actually.

That's a healthy attitude for a gym trainer to have, considering even more than gym leader it is their job to lose. Still... he's teaching them some mixed messages, huh.

XJpHQEQ.png

oh. hm, this thing could actually be a problem.
*flashes back to your earlier comments about squids* *shudders*

Oh phew.

according to another screenshot i have it was two in the morning at the time of playing, so i hope not
Maybe he's taking the name of the type literally as well as metaphorically and thinks he has to be nocturnal to specialize in it?

Nips is really doing Croc's memory as a rock-smasher justice
Early-game 'mon solidarity!

Luxray is part dark now. not sure why i left Dana out against him tho,,,
Well hey, it worked, so no harm, no foul.

oh! someone that wasn't one-shot!
I think this may be why his gym trainers think he's a delicate bean. (His feelings aren't so delicate, though. Good for him.)

Another great gym badge pic! Again, the inflatable swimming pool is cute, and the designs are cool - Lophii's soulful eyes and giant pointy teeth are an interesting combo. And Nigripes is so cute holding the badge in her mouth!

hey Sidney, this guy is clearly gonna try to kidnap me, so i need to go beat the crap out of him and feed his body to the turtles. i'll be back to chat in a bit, ok?
Deserved. Honestly, so rude! Not to mention sketchy, yeah. Hopefully you'll have a chance to talk with Sidney later.

I hope that this list of concerns is not based on personal experience.
not quite? i've never been in a sandstorm proper anyway. but i have been in many hurricanes, so i figured what happens if someone replaces the rain with sand? it gave me nightmares.

Yeah. I can see, again, the hacker trying to make the game make more sense, but they really could've gone further with it. Oh well.
on the one hand yeah, but on the other hand you can only get so far with the material you're given. ya gotta draw that 'im not going there for the sake of my mental health' line in the sand somewhere

You are a very attentive Trainer! I like that about you!
aw thanks! proper shedding care is something i feel strongly about - my leopard gecko occasionally has difficulty getting all the shed off his feet and i need to step in to remove it before it strangles his little toes

It is a cool name!
it sounds like a dinosaur and that makes it cool by default

After everything you've said about scientists earlier in the thread, this makes perfect sense.
i'm glad someone has learned

Another weighty line about respecting nature. Always enjoy those!
the earth is very heavy

Yessss! Badgers are dangerous. Not to be provoked or trifled with or dismissed as pushovers.
exactly!! my introduction to badgers was. well. if i describe it in detail i'd have to up the rating of this run for explicit violence and gore. let's just say i learned real quick i never want to anger one

Well, that was a little less enthusiastic and more ominous than usual. I wonder what's up with that....
i'm very enthusiastic about squid! they're squishy and cute and smart! i'm just also,,, mildly terrified of them.

The horrors of working with the public. Even in a fancy lab like this.
my retail-working heart weeps in sympathy

*flashes back to your earlier comments about squids* *shudders*
whoops i'd say i didn't mean to spoop anyone but it IS spoop season

Maybe he's taking the name of the type literally as well as metaphorically and thinks he has to be nocturnal to specialize in it?
that's fair. you get used to saying "good morning"/"breakfast time" in the evening and "good night"/"dinner time" in the morning when you work with nocturnals

Another great gym badge pic! Again, the inflatable swimming pool is cute, and the designs are cool - Lophii's soulful eyes and giant pointy teeth are an interesting combo. And Nigripes is so cute holding the badge in her mouth!
thanks! poor lophii looks creepy but she just wants skritches and to play. like sharks. she's a puppy

Deserved. Honestly, so rude! Not to mention sketchy, yeah. Hopefully you'll have a chance to talk with Sidney later.
yeah if it were irl i would be screaming "STRANGER DANGER" and flipping him off the entire time he was dragging me off

anyway never talk to me again or my berry plants will have some new fertilizer.

Emsleyan mimicry, aka Martensian mimicry, is the fun case where something deadly mimics something that isn't. in nature it's pretty rare - only some types of snakes. and, arguably, those little demons who pretend to be sweet innocent babies. i'm still not sure about that one toddler that started screaming like he was being burned the moment he stepped over the threshold of the church i go to

Yeah, really. It's so disgusting how he's trying to keep Wally trapped like this, and expects you (and Sidney) to be complicit in it. Fortunately you're better than that, and I suspect Sidney is too.

i would say i honestly think he's too stupid to pose a threat to me, but six years of marching band taught me the power of idiots is one of the natural wonders of the world
As a non-marching band kid, I always wondered what it would've been like if our band had been of the marching variety instead. This only makes me wonder more.

Definitely an errand for children! And player characters who are nominally children!

Wow. Your pictures continue to be top-quality - great lighting! - but this one is also quite freaky, what with the border of eldritch tentacles and glowing eyes. That's really cool. Love your art.

i'm bad at screenshotting but something keeps darting out of sight right as the light hits it and i don't like that
I wouldn't either. But props to the hacker for making this properly creepy!

Ooh, two pictures in one update? And neither is a death or a gym badge? You're spoiling us. This one is great too. Love the design. Some Hawkeye inspiration, I think, lots of stylish purple and practical mail...

oh, sounds like you've done your research! most people don't realize how risky shedding can be - i rarely even see it in the reptile care blogs/magazines i follow

As a non-marching band kid, I always wondered what it would've been like if our band had been of the marching variety instead. This only makes me wonder more.
the best way i can describe my time in marching band is "25 kids that either are on or really need to be on drugs confined on a short bus at two in the morning when no one has slept for a week thanks to redbull/espresso mixes, playing a giant game of monopoly but there wasn't enough money to go around so now we have a strip-poker side game going on for the cash, and the EVERYTHING IS AWESOME song from the lego movie has been playing on repeat for the past 75 miles"
so
yeah


I really like Emerald Advanced's version of Sidney. He seems like a really good guy.
i would murder for this man

Definitely an errand for children! And player characters who are nominally children!
right!!

Wow. Your pictures continue to be top-quality - great lighting! - but this one is also quite freaky, what with the border of eldritch tentacles and glowing eyes. That's really cool. Love your art.

i love spoopy stuff so much!! i had a lot of fun playing thru this part. the only not-fun part was the jump scare, but that's because my startle reflex is broken and causes intense chest pain like a stab wound lmao;;;

Ooh, two pictures in one update? And neither is a death or a gym badge? You're spoiling us. This one is great too. Love the design. Some Hawkeye inspiration, I think, lots of stylish purple and practical mail... I like how the bow and arrows are Umbreon-coloured, the boot knife, the ball belt, the Key Stone necklace, the goggles over the eyes... and are those cat ears?
what can i say, this episode was inspiring!
i certainly relate to Hawkeye - a purple-loving dude who loves archery, just trying his best.
i get very... bothered, by impractical superhero costumes. ESPECIALLY the stupid stuff in female costumes, like cleavage windows, exposed thighs, and high heels.
i didn't even consider the umbreon colours until you pointed it out, i just really love dark wood with gold highlights. tho i am going to run with it! umbreon is a great partner for someone who stays in the shadows.
look my coworker has these headphones that have crazy neon cat ears on them that change colour with the beat of the music and i love them

Oof. I wish you luck.
thanks, i hecking needed it

ah let me distract myself by talking about my world tortoise son. i was surprised he grew a seagrape on his back. i mean, he grew searocket as a grotle, but we were on the beach when he evolved. where did he get a seagrape plant on a mid-continent volcano?? i guess he could've had someone plant the seeds before we left the shore and kept them until he evolved? seagrape seeds don't store well, but my son has plant magic so that could explain it.
still, i'm just thankful he chose a plant that won't give me too much trouble as long as i keep him away from snow and take an allegra during flowering season

i've always liked to imagine he does this in the chaotic good way most botanists i've met are. he gives everyone berries, but how he does it depends on the person.
kind people he gives good fruit to
mean people he throws the rotten fruit at

oh, sounds like you've done your research! most people don't realize how risky shedding can be - i rarely even see it in the reptile care blogs/magazines i follow
Huh. I heard about it on an internet forum thread for reptile keepers; the danger seemed to be passed on through word of mouth fairly regularly, through warnings or horror stories. (A fair few frustrated people rehabilitating critters with toes missing from previous owners.) I had no idea that it's obscure knowledge. That's... not great.

that's nice, my backyard's a swamp. well, a wetland. ... there are alligators it counts

anyway my front yard is the bay so i feel i win
That sounds like exactly your kind of habitat.

No!!!

Ewvlmlu.png

i'm so sorry, nips.

it wasn't supposed to end that way.
Poor Nigripes. This is another very nice picture, though. Very pleasingly floofy. Excellent detail on the little toes. I like the expression too.

... huh. my first four catches have all been lost. that number really doesn't like me.
Just following the tradition of four being an unlucky number in Japan, I suppose.

Aww, this is really sweet. And the way that you draw Torterra is still great.

hello steven. have you had luck in avoiding your father?
Wow, it's strange to think that there are multiple friendly NPCs in the game that you could be saying this to.

ruJVikH.png

alright then. i've never met a vegetarian mantis before, but i accept and respect my new son's life choices
Aww, it's sweet when you're being a considerate Poké-parent. (Also, better vegetarianism than the old mantis standby of eating its prey alive one limb at a time...)

ah let me distract myself by talking about my world tortoise son. i was surprised he grew a seagrape on his back. i mean, he grew searocket as a grotle, but we were on the beach when he evolved. where did he get a seagrape plant on a mid-continent volcano?? i guess he could've had someone plant the seeds before we left the shore and kept them until he evolved? seagrape seeds don't store well, but my son has plant magic so that could explain it.
still, i'm just thankful he chose a plant that won't give me too much trouble as long as i keep him away from snow and take an allegra during flowering season
I love how you think of Pokémon in such real-world terms like this, trying to identify the plant on your Torterra's back, considering the sort of care it needs, wondering where he got the seeds. You bring such a unique perspective to this Nuzlocke and it's always very interesting.

i've always liked to imagine he does this in the chaotic good way most botanists i've met are. he gives everyone berries, but how he does it depends on the person.

um. hi?? sorry about for vanishing for almost two months?? the holidays were. not. not fun. i'm hoping the next update will be (much) quicker, but i know it might take me a while to get back into the swing of things. it's been,,, rough. but finding humor in the face of horrible grief/tragedy/trauma is an important life skill, so onwards!!


@songwithnosoul :

maybe it's just considered such common knowledge none of the articles i read think to mention it??

my poor, lovely ferret ;;~;;

thanks, i got a lot of practice drawing furrets when i was doing a comic-locke on DA that i lost all the info/art for lmao;;

Aww, this is really sweet. And the way that you draw Torterra is still great.
thanks! i was really torn between putting more galapagos tortoise vs more snapping turtle in his design, but i'm pretty satisfied with the compromise

adfasdfda that's a lovely (unheard of) opinion! most people try to smother me when watching biology-based movies with me (except my friend whom i have the IRL-that-person-would-have-a-serious-injury counter game with). like when i scream about wings/eyes/medicine/etc not working that way, or cry when a non-humpback whale has a humpback cry. or when an eagle has the signature scream of a hawk. everyone tells me not to think so hard, but i think it's insulting that people who make stuff don't think about nature enough. the natural world is crazy and inspiring!! go crazy with it!!! stop sticking to stereotypical molds!!!!

Point him towards Wally's family!
ooh, there's a fun plan

Another badass and terrifying line.
there are many things i do not trust. people-height grass is one of them.

I hope so.

everyone tells me not to think so hard, but i think it's insulting that people who make stuff don't think about nature enough. the natural world is crazy and inspiring!! go crazy with it!!! stop sticking to stereotypical molds!!!!
Yeah, really! This is something that bugs me too.

i tried to tell the cop i warned him so it was a justified killing but he said that just makes it 'premeditated murder'
Ah well, the cops in Hoenn are useless anyway. He'll probably forget you if you outrun him.

trees are special. such old, strong souls. remember to always be kind to the trees, for they have long lives and even longer memories.
I love your terrifying wilderness wisdom.

i mean frankly at this point i assume y'all and all the officer jennys are mass-produced clones in a hivemind
Hah. I mean, it's only logical. They all look and react exactly the same...

X3g2BC1.png

yes this man has my vote for president
It's like this guy is trying to appeal directly to you!

oh? do we finally have someone who's taking proper care of their sandygast?
These poor Sandygast. They seem particularly to get the short end of the stick as a species, even considering the tragic lives of many of the Pokémon you encounter.

BV2vs1z.png

h. how could you tell it was flying to a route on the opposite side of this region. what mystical powers do you have
I love how you call NPCs out on their weird, illogical dialogue. It's such fun.

jSEet1S.png

that is a very dangerous statement
At least she gave them to someone with a strong sense of ecological responsibility...

i'm just gonna back away slowly now before your wife devours you or something
You can't call the NPCs in this hack boring, and that's a great thing about it.

what this doesn't show is it works by spewing flour everywhere so everything gets coated
Hah. That's a fun interpretation. Effective, sure, but so much for Devon's fancy tech...

see i don't think you think they're shy either. just pranksters on level with the marching band woodwind section - by which i mean sneaky and occasionally dangerous
Your marching band anecdotes are fun as well.

i'm seriously so curious. is he the champion? is he someone stronger? is he an epic troll with a team of level 69 magikarps????
Now that would be spectacular.

next time i try not to wipe in the gym where it would be the most ironic
Good luck! I hope that "try not to wipe" isn't foreshadowing a bloody battle...
