Their mind is more often in the clouds than not. Most likely sick. Will probably eat your snacks.
That... is quite the unfortunate nickname. Don't worry; I would never chew this little guy.

I think the implication is that he's referring to Marnie's big brother Piers. Which is savage.
Lol the poor li'l turtle!! And for real, I HOPE it isn't about Piers, that's so savage if it is oh my god

It's so difficult to stay under the level limit when everyone's a traded mon LOL I'm not even grinding!!!

Mornin’, Marnie!! Let’s kick ass!

Hop’s waiting outside the gym cause apparently he woke up earlier than me and got to battle Kabu first!

AvXScO0.jpg


Uh-oh. I think I know what Kabu’s gonna do in his battle against me now.

LtlCZpm.jpg


It is time! I remember that I have to catch Pokemon here and that’s all I remember.

i4GT5iN.jpg


Ahhhhhhh. I see. The trainers are here to FUCK WITH ME.

I actually like how the different trainers do different tactics to get in my way, even if it is anxiety-inducing. Vulpix wasn’t really a problem - Rolycoly didn’t really do anything super-effective - but then the next trainer against Sizzlipede started ATTACKING LAURA’S. And the third battle against Litwick had the trainer tell their Pokemon to BITE it!! Anxiety, I tell you.

The Pokemon were pretty stubborn, too - I had to actually use Great Balls lol.

ZxNWgFq.jpg


I did it!!! All the gym trainers gather around to compliment me. That’s cute! I guess it’s their way of apologizing for having to be annoying jerks.

Anyways! Time to face off against Kabu!

ioHGia0.jpg
1MvU3VN.jpg


The silent acknowledgement kills me lmao

IPFJJKw.jpg


Okay, show me what you got!! I’m starting with Laura’s because she doesn’t resist fire and her strongest water-type attack is still Water Gun. Squirrel’s gonna take on the ace.

iS3ikBz.jpg


Fuuuuck there it is.

r8ZDCmo.jpg


Two can play at that game!!!!

AnxKLZA.jpg
HoXVHgP.jpg


I ain’t playing around with turn-1 burns!! And lucky me, it’s a free turn cause Ninetales takes the confusion damage!

L4sOh7F.jpg


Oh FUCK OFF

Thrilling gym battle gameplay right here.

Do9Psfo.jpg


W H Y

nUn78e4.jpg
rXkZuM4.jpg


Okay, I decide to skip the burn heal this turn and there goes Ninetales!

Even with the burn, I decide Laura’s is still the best bet against the second Pokemon. She doesn’t resist, but her tankiness will come in handy, I think. I really want to conserve Squirrel’s HP for the ace.

wPq1HaM.jpg


Uuuugh. Good thing Laura’s is a special attacker.

I decided the first thing I’m gonna do is heal her burn again and scout out Arcanine’s moveset. It uses Flame Wheel. Okay, that’s only a little scary. It doesn’t do a LOT of damage but it’s enough so I give Laura’s a Moo-Moo Milk. Arcanine uses that free turn to use Flame Wheel, aaand…

Q3WPLok.jpg
xGVbQBJ.jpg


Motherfucker.

That’s a 10% chance. :facepalm:

Welp, guess we’re gonna be here for a while. It’s a lot of screenshots so here’s the rundown:

Flame Wheel. Water Gun. Heal. Flame Wheel. Water Gun. Heal. Flame Wheel. Water Gun.

emmheWm.jpg


Finally. I didn’t make any rules related to heals but boy did that feel kinda scummy, lol. Fuck burn!!

Jeez, there’s still the ace. At least Squirrel knows a water-type move that’s better than base 40.

j7aNpbS.jpg
oa154pB.jpg


Alright! Time for the real spectacle!

7n8injT.jpg
1MX1JGN.jpg
rZQ5GSG.jpg
h5ChuJd.jpg


Centiscorch is faster than Squirrel and gets that special G-Max Centiferno attack in, which traps Squirrel in a fire spin. Squirrel snaps back with Max Geyser which is actually really really useful because it makes it start raining.

eecnL3r.jpg
BpFTmvT.jpg


Squirrel takes fire spin damage and Centiscorch switches to Max Flutterby. That sure makes my heart flutter cause it drops Squirrel’s HP a LOT more than I thought it would AND lowers my special attack.

Gg7NHpY.jpg


Also wow I never actually was able to catch the cool-ass crystal butterfly at the beginning of Max Flutterby haha

B73PIG9.jpg
hyRXJZU.jpg


Aahahaha that is so cool. Honestly the fun of this screenshot challenge is pressing the button a lot and hoping I get cool shots.

rXT2qqT.jpg


Fortunately, the special attack drop didn’t matter and Squirrel still knocked it out!

mJ1Dm04.jpg


eyyyyyyy

cpFjnXH.jpg


Jeez, Kabu! Get off the ground lmao

JkbYeT3.jpg


Oh shit, okay! Good job, Mewtwo! Love it when a Pokemon on the bench is so inspired by a battle that it evolves.

bCwUvcH.jpg


Gym badge 3 acquired!! Things are finally gonna slow down a bit.

I walk out and Hop’s waiting for me! That’s sweet. I guess the third badge is a bit of a big deal with the way this league works. The Motostoke circle is complete! He’s so happy for me that I won! I collect my TM (which is Will-O-Wisp… grrr) and am ready to go!

ZEXfv5b.jpg


Alright! My level cap jumped up to level 36 just now so the next episode is gonna be quite the montage.

Hop and I literally start running to the Wild Area (because we are adorable children) but are stopped by the gym leaders we beat!

O9eJGKa.jpg


The third badge IS a big deal! Apparently the stats show that the first actual hurdle is Kabu because a significant number of trainers drop out. Can’t blame ‘em, really. Burn’s a bitch.

WIoAd3U.jpg


I did not record the chant.

Off we gooo!!

This game can be so cute lol

That is a lie and we both know it.

Oh great. Here comes Bede, here to talk shit!

nBTfcLB.jpg


BROOOO. Them’s FIGHTING words!! They actually are, since Hop challenges him and they move off-screen to battle.

(Also, big words comin' from the kid who mentions his chairman endorsement every two seconds.)

My response to all of this is to just…

rmwU5mo.jpg


… walk in the other direction LMAOOO. I am a HORRIBLE friend.

I’ll see you in Hammerlocke, Hop!!

Poor Laura’s :( Kabu is relentless with his burns, I’m glad she’s tanky enough to make it through!!

also I like the way you put the pokemon's nature and characteristic into how you draw them. (yammer's boltund drawing is great)

Ahaha thank you!! It's been fun to draw them for sure!!

So, uh, actually, before I start, I realized I forgot amongst the hubbub that I need to actually trade my first capture from the Motostoke Gym.

Which is another Vulpix, by the way.

Oh come on!!! My level limit jumped up to 36 but I guess this will still be happening a lot haha

After sending the Lanturn back out, I found a lady talking about how rich she is!! Then she’s like “Yo I have a ton of cash to burn, wanna battle?” So I say “hold on a second” so I can make sure the Pokemon holding an amulet coin is in the front of the party.

Dude. Wow. That’s… Wow. Like… it’s just… one battle…
And yet, the next time you battle him, if you reject it (temporarily, may I add), he explicitly states he’s depressed.

Running… palpitations… please keep that chunky tadpole close to a pokemon center at all times he might need it XD

I’ll be honest. The autocorrect was technically Stinky but that was boring so I chose Stubby which was the option next to it.
Hi I love Stubby he is my favorite new catch from this update. Stinky is also a top tier name but Stubby, combined with the drawing of him doing a stretch, captured my heart

Their mind is more often in the clouds than not. Most likely sick. Will probably eat your snacks.
THAT DRAWING OF LOAD,,,,,,,,, it’s so good omg, I love it.

Go Roll!!!!!! Good now evolved pupper!!
LMAOOO thank you!!! Absolute goob!
And yet, the next time you battle him, if you reject it (temporarily, may I add), he explicitly states he’s depressed.
AHAHA REALLY?? No wayyyy
Oooooo, I didn't connect that you can really just make a screenshot run with a switch, somehow. Like, non-modded. This is so cool. I really love cute naming themes like this, too. Leaving it up to chance is just a lot of fun!
Right??? A couple people suggested I do a screenshot run but I don't, er, play "on the computer" and they were like "you can play a Switch game and take screenshots!!" and I was like :o!!!
cursed humor, but humor nonetheless. I also laughed
IMG_8212.jpg

Autocorrect: CATERPILLAR is CATERPILLAR!


Running… palpitations… please keep that chunky tadpole close to a pokemon center at all times he might need it XD


Hi I love Stubby he is my favorite new catch from this update. Stinky is also a top tier name but Stubby, combined with the drawing of him doing a stretch, captured my heart


clothes shopping time
LOLLL thank you!! I keep falling in love with all these Pokemon when I already have a full team fml
AAAAAA I missed so much 😭
My jaw is on the floor-in a good way-with how lucky you got with Nessa counters 😲
Also both Roll and Chewable are absolutely hysterical names 😆
...NEVERMIND CATERPILLAR THE CATERPIE took me out :ROFL:
And Palpitations and Load are both adorable 🥺
sgsjgks thanks!! I was shocked too! VERY lucky!!

Sorry this took so long, folks! I had many other priorities - so many that I didn't even have the time or energy to draw the ONE ENCOUNTER I got!​

Unfortunately, the first people I see upon entering Hammerlocke are Bede, Rose and Oleana. My three favorite people. Bede’s just updating them on his wishing star collectathon.

EJiTmQK.jpg


Oh wow. Oleana what the fuck. Guess that explains a lot, huh?

Rose explains that the wishing stars are going to be used in some sort of… experiment? for the sake of Galar.

Good thing we have one of those!

"With all due respect, sir, I defeated a totally different rookie trainer in a Pokemon battle a single time so that means I’m qualified to be as strong as the Champion for your weird science experiments."

eeqHOjy.jpg


Yeah, I guess I was, huh? I could’ve, like, walked up and said hi or something instead of just eavesdropping from a distance.

Rose tells me to follow him into the stadium so he can explain his science shit to me and I’m just like yeah okay cool I’ll meet you there then I walk in the opposite direction to explore the town first. He and his “every moment counts” attitude can sit down and wait for me to go clothes shopping.

Well support her in her dreams then!! C’mon!

I mean, you can, like, look at the Galar map to confirm that. It’s, uh, pretty easy to confirm, actually. It’s like right there in the middle.

Someone just told me that you can buy Leon’s replica cape but no one can wear it because it’s too heavy. Lol. tfw too many sponsorships

O7S2meK.jpg


LMAO this is the greatest NPC in the entire game

Oh right, THIS side quest. I have to bring the letter to Frank in Ballonlea. Absolutely nothing ghostly about this at all.

Okay, fine, I’ll go talk to Rose now.

Waow! Science is incredible!

U6fctwj.jpg


Oh now you’re telling ME to go to the vault too?? This is getting pretty sus.

LXWJlmj.jpg


Oh! Leon! Hi!

cX73RY9.jpg
NF3tFOK.jpg


Awww Hop…!! That’s sad but also I’m cracking up at him never apologizing for anything?? Hop, really???

Apparently Leon’s here because the chairman asked him to. It, well, probably has something to do with the fact that the chairman was just saying he needed the help of “someone like the champion” for his science shit.

Also, this happened too fast to take a screenshot, but he said he was off to the stadium then ran CLEAN BACKWARDS IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. THE DIRECTION HE JUST CAME FROM. I love this guy.

wx5VxHa.jpg


Oh! Raihan! Hey buddy!! I forgot I’d be meeting you here! He gave me his league card then directed me to the vault.

CMV3BY8.jpg


Miss WHO??? Ahaha didn’t you go through the freakin’ gym challenge with her??

So it turns out there are TWO heroes, not just the one in Budew Inn.

What is all this random misinformation all over Galar involving these guys?? Can’t they be consistent in their misinformation???

2gTL7Zy.jpg


Bro, just hold his hand already.

Anyways, that scene opened up the next route so let’s just head straight to it.

GA92pll.jpg
FPyhzxc.jpg


Yeah I vibe with that.

hIqsKzm.jpg


I love this lol. They’re like “of course!” and she just walks through. This woman exudes the aura of “I have lived on this earth for many decades and have dealt with weirder shit than this.” She probably has grandchildren that say similar things like “don’t step on the cracks!” or “ssshhh my doll is sleeping!”

vykOs9A.jpg


Oh, boy. Hop, buddy, this is not a good time.

p7lQWi4.jpg
Zl4QZEJ.jpg


Bitch stop stomping oh my god!!!!!!

Surprisingly this is a one-on-one battle?? I kick his ass.

fCb4gkp.jpg


Oh boy, Hop really IS depressed.

zdtcYRN.jpg


Of COURSE she was.

gieABlz.jpg


Honestly I’m surprised it’s still asleep.

At least Hop feels a little better after watching me battle. He comments on Laura’s and I battling well together. Aww.

ToEGMZA.jpg
f1ydN1n.jpg


[cracks knuckles] He said WHAT?!

F9hQrfm.jpg


Hop oh my god I want to hug you so bad. I’m thinking about how I’d have felt if someone said something like that to me when I was his age and holy shit. That’s ACTUALLY shitty.

I remember having this dilemma in my casual playthrough, too, where I was like “Wow, electric/poison is great, but I already have Boltund on my team…” I ended up using both, lol, but I think I’ll keep this Toxel in the box for now.

Okay, new route, same me! Time to deal with annoying sand and ladders!!

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Loves music, worldbuilding, anthropomorphism, horrible puns, and Masquerain.

Wow. I mean, I know his whole thing (besides being unbeatable) is that he's pants with directions, but... WOW. If it were anyone else, I'd write this off as a developer oversight, but it is completely in character for Leon.

Yes. I think we should all apply this attitude to real life, even

For real! They are HORRIBLE influences.

Through the sand we go!
Yaaaay battles and ladders and sand and thin hallways with overworld Pokemon…

CFxWDkD.jpg


I’m no expert but I’m pretty sure this is an accurate depiction of doctors. Please let him take a nap.

AF0upQw.jpg


Oh my god the way my life flashed before my eyes……. Sawk and Throh are TERRIFYING in Nuzlockes. I was seriously expecting a Payback one-shot but fortunately it didn’t do that.

wmEIk2R.jpg


STOP IT!!!

GNpK9d1.jpg


First of all: The strength of YOUR Pokemon almost gave me a heart attack!

And two: Yeah uh your mouth DOES look numb, and you seem to be missing all of your teeth… Are you, uh, okay?

SIuVYiU.jpg

Obligatory mention of the artist model. Seriously, I AM more of an expert on artists than I am doctors and this is accurate. I assume the artists in Game Freak would know, too.

AJhwzr7.jpg
SlevcAf.jpg


Makes sense. The exp share is very powerful in this game.

QQOJiv4.jpg


Hmmm. I think I see where this character arc is going.

Oh! His first Pokemon is Cramorant. Interesting. I have Laura’s out so I think she can handle this.

HLFPJ98.jpg
lKbh532.jpg


Oh! Cramorant is faster and now he has a fishie. Legit was wondering how that happened. (This shows how little I’ve actually played gen 8.)

I’ll be honest, Hop, I literally forgot that Freeze-Dry’s thing is that it’s super effective against water types, so don’t give me TOO much credit.

JESUS CHRIST

B88fQl3.jpg


That SCARED me! I think that’s the first time I had a Cramorant actually have a fish in its mouth when it fainted, lmao. Good lord!

Hop sends out his Thwackey next, so I switch to… Leaven?

fqUPKQn.jpg


Wh-Why did I switch to Leaven?? I think I need to take a break from the game after this!!

azQE3qo.jpg


Okay let’s try this again.

Opal I didn’t even know you were here but sure I’ll take it.

Oh, I should probably check out the surrounding area before entering the gym. I remember shit goes down after I beat the gym leader so let’s see what’s up before that happens.

14heY00.jpg


Bitch you’re like 4. How the fuck are you even pronouncing qu and r and st???

HbuHjrh.jpg


Stunning. Definite legitimate representation of art history. Nothing suspicious here.

I just found out I can enter the forest! No one’s blocking my path! Wow!! But I’m just gonna turn back around and go into the gym anyway. I’m sure it’s so people can catch a fairy or psychic type for Bea’s gym but it’s not like I keep the Pokemon I’d be catching there.

Well I guess it’s time to face the gym… I actually had to grind for like… five minutes to get everyone to level 35!
