Let's not mention that I'm kinda late again and just get into the update!

6lWoGFi.png

There'll be trainers up ahead to battle, so I don't think we really need to worry about grinding right now!
So let's get moving to the next town already!


GRN9g1X.png

There's a couple of ninja kids to take care of, but they're not really anything to worry about.


XSZBJzi.png

EGMlly7.png

See! Why grind against wild Pokemon when there are trainers available?
Aegis is finally catching up to the rest of the team!


pc4mep6.png

I appreciate you and your friends deciding to be my punching bags!


eSHlLYp.png

Here it is, the dreaded fog route.
Yeah I know I could just run back and grab Stella, but I'm too stubborn for that!
Onward, into the unknown!


LJS9ZxK.png

You fool, that's just your weakness talking!
You need to embrace the fog!


utXzle1.png

...
I'm gonna be seeing a lot of this.
But that's just a small price to pay for proving that I'm no pushover!


Lx73xr4.png

And Aegis is all caught up now!
Which means...


Ux62WAo.png

Mystery to the rescue!
My precious pink boy knows Swift, which never misses!
No more fog fear for me!


4po93hp.png

Oops, I didn't mean to run into this double battle.
Oh well, we should be okay.


nzVVad8.png

iRR50Uk.png

h3kdxEA.png

What a terrible way to start a battle!
I think I'm gonna take out the Gyarados first, it might know Bite.
I'll just have Mystery risk a Psyc-

lPrza9V.png

Of course it did.
I hate the fog...


cuK3BaZ.png

...
It happened so fast I didn't get a screenshot.
Chewy died.
I forgot that Gyarados could learn Ice Fang...
...
I... I don't even know how to react right now...


PjyQQ2z.png

Devour them Beau.


mYGRfej.png

Beau can take the Gyarados out in one hit, so I'll have Mystery handle the Raichu.


Y9zuOOe.png

Beau missed and Mystery got hit hard!


L5IyxWb.png

E7IcWmn.png

I am not losing two Pokemon to these bastards!


Z8IPoVf.png

NO!


gMm52cF.png

Oh thank Xerneas.
Mystery would have absolutely died there...


k0YJg2C.png

Kill it.


IapztK3.png

That's for murdering my dragon you monster!


kEWrtVy.png

Good riddance.


HVyhQsD.png

You really fought for that level Mystery...
This was a terrible battle...


YJKU4oD.png

I guess... I should head back to the Pokemon Center...
...
...
...


Qd2frSP.png

Rest in peace Chewy. Sorry I couldn't get you all the way to Garchomp...
I am genuinely so mad about this loss. Garchomp is one of my favorite Pokemon, and honestly Chewy felt like my lucky charm...
We were doing so well for so long and now I have three dead Pokemon.


Yu61lTg.png

*sigh*
Well Dandy, looks like all that training wasn't for nothing.


jcIIjsH.png

This really sucks...
I did learn my lesson though, I need to go grind my Pokemon up a bit before moving on.
I'll be back as soon as I'm done.
...
...
...


Syus0UD.png

Level thirty five.
We should be okay now... hopefully.
And so we don't have any more accidents, Beau will be leading this time around.


sWXiwMg.png

And no, I'm not gonna bring Stella along still.
Yes, I really am just that stubborn.


8GHXIET.png

TRH5pU4.png

No, it's not confidence that I'm feeling right now.
It's determination.


rdfFbyj.png

I am going to be better, no more mistakes.
I will do everything in my power to not lose another one of my Pokemon!


cVjoTDF.png

jP45aCC.png

And that means getting stronger.
Me and Beau are gonna protect the rest of the team, together.


Gy2Gy8s.png

Honestly though buddy, you have got to stop getting paralyzed!


cNxZLBi.png

The fog is a little bit less scary now though. Or maybe I'm just bottling the fear up?
Either way things seem a little easier now.


Dzp2h0T.png

I thought maybe taking the bike path would mean less trainers, but no! It just meant it was ninja time!


8dd3HWy.png

It ended well enough either way though.


KMbx5if.png

...
This path was pointless since I don't have Dwayne and I'm not gonna teach a different Pokemon Rock Smash.


TyT22ym.png

Back to the main path we go I suppose!


6SeUpaE.png

What's it for then? Hiding in this fog?


XElubQc.png

9iVozqL.png

Doesn't matter either way, you were still defeated all the same.
Thanks for the level though!


j62835d.png

I would have absolutely seen you if it weren't for this fog.
If only there were some way to get rid of it!


qPbuboK.png

Beau's gotten a lot of levels today, so I'm letting Bruce take the lead for a bit.


x97WY22.png

Not too bad.
Though I wish you hadn't have given me a heart-attack there Bruce!


5kVZVHv.png

Absolutely not worth coming this way.


TBW9kZ9.png

I used to have a bird!
Now I just have a bat, and he's about to destroy your flock!


s3rNbsT.png

See? What did I tell ya?


Gxqn88S.png

Last trainer of the route.
Let's finish this.


4Rx9jJa.png

That thing knew Ancient Power so I swapped out Bruce and brought in Mystery.
But then it got a boost right afterwards!


ndfbGs8.png

Mystery is having way too many close calls today!
At least it worked out in the end though. Mystery was faster and just took everything out with a single hit.


JZ7O2i4.png

Thank Kyurem, the fog is finally lifting!
Know where is Cynthia's granny?


PMLuPtK.png

That's nice.
Anyway, I think you're probably who I'm looking for so-


OiN43a1.png

...


HMRrczM.png

*sigh*
You're not gonna take this off my hands until I deal with him are you?


DHYigR7.png

AmF5Jgf.png

I guess that's my answer!


cczerXW.png

Stupid Galactic grunts and their stupid Galactic bombs...


Fn46fri.png

Hey loser! Fight me!


1sljKOU.png

pBvCA5D.png

Your bomb could barely damage a swamp. Why do you think you'll be able to take out a whole town with it?


TdGRW4H.png

Ha! That's funny.


gcArEL1.png

I don't have a choice. I can't finish my delivery until you are defeated!


PTWpSDp.png

5E6FBse.png

KodSl45.png

gRgOdu5.png

Bruce can handle this guy no problem!


hA2nsxV.png

DIeOUBy.png

36yswEA.png

Done and done.


f0JEXXs.png

gknbfly.png

s1Dlsqr.png

That's right, run away little blue-boy!
Go tell your daddy Cyrus that you got beat up by the mean lady.


BNDbYyR.png

vIbSl3n.png

Thank you, but if I were actually a good trainer I wouldn't have let my Gabite die.
Poor Chewy...


GGk4zmG.png

Ah! I was right you are Cynthia's granny!


uDvzMH1.png

aqwl5VL.png

RFS0JVs.png

lBlwCJM.png

Great, please take it off my hands.


OEe5iu8.png

I sure do hope I get a really cool reward!
Especially since today has been hell.


i7pvXtz.png

atF3t6f.png

Are you talking about Arceus? Or maybe Dialga and Palkia?
Or maybe your talking about Giratina and it's actually some sort of satanic charm!


VPPFxH5.png

That's nice, but it still doesn't answer my question.
What sort of sick secrets are you hiding old woman?


orD3SCC.png

KYH5IFs.png

Well alright, but if I go in there and see you guys sacrificing a Gogoat to Giratina I'm going to be very upset!


99C8ijQ.png

Well I'm not seeing any mysterious hooded figures...


3C7kcoI.png

And there's no bloody Gogoat anywhere...


XP5ArRE.png

There's a kinda weird mural on the back wall but it doesn't look like Giratina, so I think we're good!


BXnNAec.png

dCXUvHs.png

AFGdoHT.png

lEtAGYD.png

Kha3l0Z.png

Well the figures are clearly the lake trio, although I'm still not sure what that sphere in the middle is supposed to be.
I thought it might be the red chain back when I was a kid, so I'm just gonna go with that.


I2X3W2C.png

Z5DjVUx.png

HMFjwn4.png

TWfKGK4.png

W6EUos8.png

3yUns9m.png

u1SZO7x.png

Oh hey granny! Thanks for the exposition.


eXeRJq6.png

Oh sweet Shaymin, did the grunt actually run off and tell Cyrus that I beat him up?
That's hilarious.


hWRNoRP.png

kGyRcHB.png

Nl0HQHx.png

And so we meet again.


gIMm3s1.png

nMBJdYa.png

That sounds really good on paper, yet somehow I'm still not convinced.


hbON8M8.png

sV1VLyS.png

s9mgpMb.png

I mean, balance isn't a bad thing my dude.
What kind of change are you looking to make that it involves losing balance?


NcXDPHo.png

GLHpq7s.png

I6ehNVt.png

Yeah I'm with granny on this one, if it ain't broke don't fix it.


ctHrqAi.png

h1MRN2F.png

zTQfmjJ.png

Best of luck to you my brother!
Can I go now? You usually just monologue for a bit and then let me go.


Rfoe3YI.png

SeOvOBo.png

486V6YX.png

gZ4f4Lj.png

Oh no. It's way too early for a Cyrus battle...
I don't actually have to battle him do I?


8oiDqhy.png

Oh sweet mother of Keldeo I'm screwed.
*sigh*
Welp, there's no backing down. Let's do this.


IaDigob.png

EPmRInx.png

16bYUko.png

We really don't have to do this. I like what we had going before!
You know, where you would ramble at me for a couple of minutes before walking away?
That was really nice, I liked that.


v2Pg8Fp.png

eS6379y.png

Well alright then, I guess we're doing this.


kIfFt9M.png

ccQfDEm.png

And right off the bat I need to switch!
Bruce cannot handle a Sneasel.


592KRBG.png

It's your time to shine Aegis!


WWfBXI9.png

Ha! That won't do anything!
Aegis literally has a shield for a face.


bY3rIDz.png

C'mon, give me an Ancient Power boost...


t7bFm4q.png

Dammit Aegis!
That's not an Ancient Power boost!


ctwnj3X.png

V7tEAgv.png

Unfreeze please!


pPfsvVQ.png

Great job big guy! Now take him out!


s51B5aa.png

Boost?


bfozmNM.png

No boost. But at least the Sneasel is taken care of.


gKN8ePx.png

A Golbat! I'll just keep Aegis in.


PET8wFg.png

khlFcPd.png

I am gonna heal him first though.


8iMiiJ0.png

That's all it can do?
This'll be a walk in the park.


NoYilUA.png

Boost please?


3jtYSOu.png

Not only did I not get a boost, but Cyrus is also stealing my tactics!


NhtNSAB.png

Fine then. Let's just try Rock Tomb instead.


mc739tT.png

That did almost nothing.
Bastiodon really do have terrible attack stats...
At least I got a speed drop I suppose.


ZPvWdpN.png

Alright, let's try to get the Ancient Power boost one last time!


DcgBHtL.png

NZFTZkH.png

I got no boost and I had to finish it off with Rock Tomb...


KtyGTeW.png

Last Pokemon, and it's a Murkrow!
Aegis is really getting some screen-time today!


iMn2isP.png

dkzxvLG.png

That thing has Night Shade! The one thing that can break through Aegis' defenses...
As long as I keep Aegis' health above 35 points though we'll be fine.


D6v1gj3.png

Stop healing your Pokemon!
I'm the only one allowed to do that!


KFj2Gps.png

There, it's finally over!


Xi3xIIw.png

Aw, thanks Cyrus!
This honestly feels like a pretty anticlimactic battle after what I had to deal with earlier in this chapter, but I'm glad we didn't lose anyone else.


phRFvyK.png

Flattery will get you absolutely everywhere with me sir.


GLY3eX5.png

DhtOVQf.png

Mq5LN3O.png

Lj2JWVf.png

He vanished so quickly I barely had time to get a screenshot. Either way, that was a surprisingly clean battle!
I could have swapped to Beau after I brought the Sneasel down but I wanted to give Aegis a chance to show off, and honestly he did a really great job!


89xKgJf.png

I agree! Him and his team are a bunch of loonies.


ah9t9fL.png

xTU3V9V.png

w8ClykE.png

Well I mean, I'm sure there are some things worth changing about the world, but not in the way he wants to change it.


fxozMqD.png

bE9JAsE.png

melJqaE.png

Surf!
Now we can go get our sixth gym badge!


Zic4qwu.png

Aw, thanks granny!
That's actually a pretty good reward.


60nlb8R.png

See you around! And thanks for not sacrificing me to Giratina!


imMLYmu.png

I think this is a good place to end the update.
I know my schedule's been a bit off lately, but today's still Saturday (where I am at least) - that means I didn't technically skip a week!
Anyway, I'll see you all next time!

At this point I'm just going to make Saturday night my new upload time.
Either way here's your new update, fresh outta the oven!

@redninjapuffle
Losing Chewy was horrible. I was so excited to tear through Sinnoh with a Garchomp.
Imagine having a Garchomp face-off with Cynthia! Now that would have been legendary...

8vC9rJT.png

First thing for today's adventure is to get out of this cave!
We've got Surf now, so it's time to head back to Jubilife.


DSRx9B6.png

gWUjmuo.png

Oh hey Cynthia! Cyrus was a pushover for the most part so I got off pretty easy.
... Wait a minute. Why did you have me deliver that charm to your granny if you were coming here anyway!?


UmW3F5Z.png

Yeah, and he snitched on me like the little Rattata he is!


pjXKYbn.png

... Why did you think that?
I mean, they're pushovers in battle, but they do have bombs woman!
Even if those bombs are about as dangerous as dry ice...


C5Agt73.png

sdAu7fZ.png

6cHgvDr.png

C83xdTL.png

Alright, ya got me there.
They do sound really stupid.


KVakbkT.png

I... I don't think that's what they're trying to do. I'm pretty sure their goal is to re-create the world in their own image.
Just how out of the loop are you?


5VDl9tj.png

Oh yeah, they were a blast.
Too bad there weren't any cultists in there though; now that would've been interesting!


yFN0je7.png

mYOKV1B.png

EcyGYZ2.png

Well that's not why I was going to Canalave, but I might stop by the library while I'm there!


zBFiMwG.png

That's the plan ma'am!


KX9rzZn.png

Well, I guess I'll see you guys once I get to Jubilife!
...
...
...


GgYR7Hz.png

Here we are, back in Jubilife! Man, we haven't been back here since Beau was still a Shinx.
Time sure does fly...
And yes, I did in fact bike the whole way back. I still haven't bothered to actually teach Stella Fly and I refuse to teach it to Bruce.


pOu1d8W.png

Gl2xSsi.png

I did teach Bean Surf though. It's just an overall better move than Water Pulse.


iW8yadv.png

Also, while we're here...


iBCboRc.png

mHrypqM.png

Ju72c7G.png

I got a couple of new Poketch apps!
I'm not sure if I'll ever use them (especially the Link Searcher) but I wanted to grab them anyway.


7EbrGpp.png

Now onward to Canalave City!


iHdv8J3.png

Route 218! That means we get a chance for a new catch!
But I don't really want a water type, so I'll just use a repel until I get across the waterway so I can try and catch something in the grass on the other side.


iB8aLIV.png

Time to hang ten Bean!


Jy4OoYi.png

We made it across, safe and sound.


MWf9n3v.png

I don't think those two things are mutually exclusive my friend!


VZXIYK6.png

Bruce can take care of this little guy no problem!


nXgm6j5.png

Well we got a level up, but Bruce also knocked himself around a bit due to confusion.


EPcptOT.png

Eek, a Machoke.
That thing could have a rock type move on it, so I'm not sure if I wanna risk keeping Bruce in...
...
Screw it, I'm gonna risk it.


ULMKNh3.png

Oh thank Regirock, we're in the clear.


cbzZkN6.png

Now let's see what we can find in the grass!


SQdLmGy.png

Riiight after this battle...


LTLjTfx.png

And we're done.
Now let's see what we can catch!


oksdiTp.png

Oh, a Floatzel.
Not what I was hoping for but I'll take him I guess...


GNMwFm4.png

Yay.


Ap5AiM4.png

Everyone say goodbye to Mango, he's going in the PC.


yYgh05M.png

Now let's get into Canalave already!


VOSJY28.png

puE1d6v.png

Who are you?


ykA56jL.png

emTbsMo.png

Oh right, you're the one that spawned that annoying gambling addict!
You're son is a gambling addict by the way.


szp9bYa.png

A5z5nb4.png

That's... kinda creepy actually.
I'm starting to think that Lucas may be the normal one in your family...


9PtQbqM.png

I wish I could say no, but I know you would just ignore me anyway...


7Qf7AyU.png

Dq5BOwl.png

That really doesn't sound good!


zl3SnuO.png

Are you sure? That sounded more like breaking than it did upgrading.


4WTbnCV.png

77decto.png

2HvDYm4.png

Oh right, I forgot that I was supposed to be gathering information on Pokemon for the Professor! I promised I would do that in exchange for him giving me Re-
...
Actually, forget I said anything and just get out of my way.


o085tAI.png

jSie9Ui.png

Don't you worry creepy glasses man, Detective Pika is on the case!
Now go away.


9JbmY6v.png

jAcZYCN.png

r7khUkB.png

Finally!
Let's get out of here before he decides to come back...


O7L6PIt.png

Ah, beautiful Canalave City!
Can't you just smell that sea breeze!


GSWFokE.png

Screw you buddy! Do you have any idea how hard it is to surf on a giant sea slug?


TfWgCjE.png

Oh, no not yet.
I need to go heal up and buy some stuff at the mart first.
Oh by the way we're going to Iron Island this chapter and we'll be doing the gym in the next one. Sorry for those of you that wanted to see a gym battle today.


8RqhWBK.png

I don't think I've ever shown you guys a screenshot of me healing my Pokemon at a Pokemon Center, so here you go I guess. Hope it's exciting for you.


Wr4OHNt.png

And I'm just gonna pick up some Hyper Potions, Ultra Balls, Full Heals, and maybe a few Repels.


Ze2ZUZ7.png

Also the move deleter lives right here.
We might pay him a visit some other time.


gzrX8G0.png

Now we're all set to cross the bridge.


yamFGru.png

qO6p1MX.png

You fools!
It's never that easy to make progress through a town. It's rival battle time!
I actually remember this one pretty well because I struggled with this specific Barry battle as a kid, I'm not too worried about it now though.


eBxgcPO.png

Actually I was thinking of heading to Iron Island first.


IH7jwj0.png

EN7ndW7.png

Sure thing blondie, let's get this done!


DdNDBcA.png

x1r3CPl.png

oNQtDt8.png

Hm, not the best match-up but I think I'll leave Bruce in for a turn to see how he does.


mBsRbJN.png

Since you lowered Bruce's attack stat let's see how you like Air Cutter!


bG7bN3d.png

Of course that's what you decide to go for...


qRsUXWJ.png

Air Cutter didn't do much and I don't really want to play around with this thing so...


r94A7Ew.png

Dinner time Beau!


dNeWwhu.png

How do you like it Barry!?


KFVsUS9.png

Take Down hurts pretty bad, but I don't want to bring in Aegis in case this thing knows Close Combat already.
Beau should be okay.


uy3hBt9.png

Of course it did.


FCtSe3c.png

Take Down really hurts.
I need to heal Beau.


y1LTlof.png

eQV0zZP.png

You have got to stop scaring me like this buddy.


DEyrV7w.png

SWEET BABY ZACIAN THAT WAS A CRITICAL HIT!


ww85Spv.png

1gR6Wn6.png

HEAL NOW, PLEASE TAKE THE POTION BEAU!


h7ZxKjv.png

Oh thank goodness, I can handle that.


VKDzZel.png

lGAGYMM.png

Finally!


SIbk0Zp.png

Welp, looks like I can bring Bruce back in.


xJaJdE7.png

Come on back out Bruce!


3tBnUuY.png

dLvJCcT.png

Well that didn't hurt, so why don't you let me show you something that does hurt!


9DzJOAE.png

KLr3ZpV.png

8t1UAOs.png

Munch munch bitch.


66wWyim.png

And here's the big boy.
I think I'm gonna switch; not because I don't think Bruce could handle it but because I want another one of my Pokemon to get some experience.


mwLGMj2.png

It's party time Bean!


h1XRkii.png

That... shouldn't do too much damage.
Right?


FlAIjB9.png

I was correct!


2o88qWX.png

I think it's time to show off our little dance Bean my boy.


im4WJgV.png

Please don't kill Bean...


qevgS30.png

That did a good chunk of damage!


OLe9gOJ.png

That's okay though because it's time to bring on the rain!


ZcqGxcj.png

Now I'm gonna heal Bean and show monkey-boy here why he should have brought an umbrella.


593lx7P.png

Je5hfDh.png

Because surf's up baby!


IieBDmq.png

0H3zrdt.png

Atta boy Bean!


7MkDwrD.png

And Bruce got a level!


MkEkD8Z.png

But now it's time to switch out!
Ain't no plant gonna kill my sea slug.


jTy8FTg.png

Time to shine Mystery!


6oLs5DL.png

jQCpTpG.png

That did more damage than I thought it would!


OswergF.png

6OJoVGJ.png

91wZwXr.png

Doesn't matter though because Mystery is a god among men!


QkmoLD7.png

6bQj9JY.png

Even though I'm pretty sure Mystery could take this thing out, I'm not gonna try my luck in case this thing knows Crunch.


radKPAj.png

Wait... NO!


LIaUnAB.png

That was WAY too close for comfort!


kXiq8Wm.png

Please kill it Beau.


bmDIed5.png

ATOaGSP.png

Thank you.


6N5KA5H.png

You are so lucky you're still alive to have that level up Mystery.


r1vyQLM.png

Just barely!


AeUL32E.png

Normally I'd mock you and say that I'm way out of your league, but honestly you had me on the ropes this time Barry.
I'd be impressed if I weren't terrified!


8bKQQBg.png

XmdVK0Z.png

R7G9kRX.png

Me?


S01AWXF.png

I mean, that is what I said but I think you misunderstood...


9UBGlou.png

That's what I was trying to do Barry!

And he's off once again.


YhHVe40.png

That was a genuinely scary battle and I think I'm going to be sick...
...
...

Bruce is gonna be sitting this one out since there isn't much he can do against the Pokemon on Iron Island. We'll be back for him once we're done though.
I also need a space empty for the Riolu egg we'll be getting since I don't want to have to come back for it later.


fY8hCZa.png

Now let's go burn through Iron Island real quick!


1VKF5G8.png

0EHLlHp.png

Woohoo!!!


oQPVfzQ.png

Here we are.


CiasPNH.png

And there you are!
Hello handsome Lucario man.


cojea5i.png

An admirer.
It's a pleasure to meet you.

Aw Riley, that's exactly what I wanted!
You are so thoughtful.


tdSAdk0.png

fhodmsL.png

Lucky for me that's my next step!


SeWufU2.png

Oh, I will.


VD76a8W.png

Technically I could just turn around right here, but I want that Riolu egg.
So in we go after the pretty boy!


1PlXpfu.png

Let's see if we can get a new catch here!


th2OalG.png

...
Of course it's a Graveler. Why would it be anything other than a Graveler?


UzyssPe.png

Let's go catch up with Riley I guess!


Zxqg1bI.png

This was the only interesting this to happen on my way down.
Good for you Bean, you've been getting a lot done this chapter!


FOg0D8s.png

There he is.


vCVJp8F.png

dCZp4M4.png

I'm happy to see you too!
Aren't we a great pair?


bv6kNVy.png

Z3oH6Nt.png

bZ2cg4Q.png

ER3lfKR.png

There's a few trainers in here but I'm not really worried about them, so I'm just gonna skip ahead and I'll see all of you at the end!
...
...
...


hEGo4xT.png

So, you know how I always say that I would let you guys know if something happened - well, something happened.
I wasn't paying close enough attention and that Medicham took out Riley's Lucario; meaning I'm the only one battling. It's now a two on one and they have almost full teams.
Mystery is asleep and I need a clean swap in order to heal him, so I need to send someone else out since Mystery is the only one that can take that Medicham down. It's used a couple of Calm Minds and I'm scared of a psychic attack.


hup8P8r.png

Aegis is probably the only Pokemon I have that might be able to survive more than one hit here.
...
Sending him in could be our only chance to pull out of this.


HztLH6A.png

I am so sorry buddy...


oVBP7vm.png

Ugh... how did I let this get so out of hand?


F8Kvcni.png

Please Mystery, just take out the Medicham.
I don't think the Hippopotas can really do anything...


otlWpnH.png

That's my boy!


4CYjnD2.png

...
The Hippopotas used Crunch...
WHEN DID IT LEARN CRUNCH!? It could have used that move at any point in this battle but it didn't, so why right now!?


ClZdvLg.png

Please, Bean... I need you to do whatever you can.


zM8F3sC.png

p4fv2Nj.png

I'm using Surf to do as much damage as possible, but it might not be enough...
That Kirlia keeps using Calm Mind and now there's a Staraptor on the field.
This... might be the end.


ul6pFTe.png

The Kirlia is down, but that Staraptor hits really hard!


eSMK28z.png

BEAN!


yhn73BW.png

This isn't good...


7hE3qQJ.png

Wait. That's it?
I actually managed to pull out of that somehow!?
... I think I'm in shock.


nyZWUQL.png

I just lost two of my best Pokemon to a pair of random trainers in Iron Island...
I don't actually know if I'm going to be able to recover from this.
Losing Chewy was terrible because Garchomp is one of my favorite Pokemon, but to be honest he wasn't really pulling his weight that much. These two were pulling their weight though, and by a lot.
I really don't know what I'm going to do now...


4Ku6Abm.png

I guess I still need get through the rest of Iron Island...
I was right at the exit too... Those trainers were completely avoidable.


GqlgNYO.png

Zs78NpZ.png

BK9zhTk.png

Yep, whatever he's saying I completely agree with.
...
Sorry I'm not really up for banter right now...


ERHZiSC.png

ZK2kZQy.png

Fd6loYE.png

SX6yGFf.png

Is this some sort of bomb related thing?
Because I think the Graveler here know Self-Destruct...


uHKL2sl.png

CRK9Qlc.png

wqaO5aa.png

uZITj3u.png

Okay. It can't be any worse than what I just went through.


u1I9KcH.png

Riley, if your Lucario faints again I'm going to have to stop calling you pretty.


FEqb8OR.png

... Thank you Riley.


ysSd4cn.png

I'm not going to take any chances right now.
Let's set up for a sweep Bean.


6nD7zYC.png

Riley if you're trying to make me feel better it's sort of working.
Keep it up!


R5k1mU7.png

That one was me. I used Surf.
Sorry for hurting your Lucario Riley...


53BJZ4o.png

If anyone deserves a level up today it's definitely Bean.


CXD5TVq.png

0pkrF21.png

Once more, with feeling.


pJ32eBo.png

... Sorry Riley.
That was on me so I won't get mad.


Lx2zlOU.png

Totally worth it though.


aZSoN4m.png

90dcjPa.png

Two more Surfs and we're done.

cH0OGZM.png

I would say "no problem" but I literally lost two of my best Pokemon for helping you out, so it actually was a pretty big problem.


hlRigo5.png

44pfY7s.png

I'll take it, but I'm starting to think that this just wasn't worth it...


t9tHZIj.png

XxgFclM.png

CTAJbNP.png

There is a very high chance that it's gonna die, but I'll do my best.


zWzWJEA.png

Okay that was actually really sweet.
I had a good time too, or I was having a good time at least up until that massacre...


CYNypwQ.png

BMpgJtr.png

Thanks Riley, take care of yourself too.


OjebrKL.png

I think what I'm feeling right now is dead inside.


NDr0TN9.png

I guess we should go lay Aegis and Mystery to rest...
...
...
...


qvqeXXl.png

Sorry I had to sacrifice you big guy. I didn't want to, but I didn't think anyone else would give me enough time to heal Mystery.
You were a great shield for the team. Nothing could break through your armor and the whole team was a lot safer with you around.
You held your ground right up till the end, and I don't think anyone will be as bulky as you were...


vBLeLlL.png

Mystery, I spent so much time on you and it was worth every second. You were such a little warrior and you got us through some pretty tough battles. I didn't know you for very long but you made a huge impact for the short time you were here.
I think you truly saved the rest of the team by taking out that Medicham, I don't think anyone else could have taken it down as fast as you did. Sleep well little guy...


eSUQ982.png

I think this was the hardest loss I've had so far.
Losing Red in the beginning was rough because he was my starter, but honestly he hadn't been on the team that long. Shiva's death didn't really hurt that bad since I wasn't really attached to her. Chewy dying was painful, but mostly manageable.
Losing Aegis and Mystery though - that's really hitting me hard right now. I promised that I wouldn't lose anyone else and I failed to keep that promise almost immediately.
I really don't think this Riolu egg was worth all of this...


22UwRiO.png

I'm honestly not sure who to add to the team...
I'll definitely be adding the Riolu that I'm gonna get from this egg (which means more friendship grinding for me) but I don't know who else to bring on...


I17SO3c.png

Either way I'm gonna leave it here for now.
This chapter was a roller coaster and I don't know how well the team is going to recover from this. I guess if there's one thing I learned from this loss is that I was absolutely right to despise double battles...
See you guys next time for the gym battle I guess.

I'm a bit late to the party to this run, took me awhile to read it all and get caught up

This question actually somehow managed to confuse me when I was a kid.
This question actually somehow managed to confuse me when I was a kid.
I knew that being a thief was a bad thing, but I thought that was common sense and assumed that Looker was talking about some weird adult saying that I didn't know about; so I always said "no" to this question.
Now that I'm an adult though I know he's just asking if we know that it's bad to steal, which I of course know is wrong.
And just to be clear: yes, I was a very stupid kid.
lol this is great

Psychics and Fighting types always worried me as a kid too, and still kinda do even now. I think that it's because they're usually stupid powerful and almost always have the speed / bulk to pose a maor threat. Most NFEs are usually not very threatening but a Kadabra with Psychic or a Machoke with Karate Chop, Submission, Cross Chop, etc etc which I'd consider the "stereotypical" trainer psychic and fighting types are usually miles above any other threat around that level in terms of how much damage they can dish out. Later gens gave a lot of Psychics and Fighting types coverage to beat their checks, like Focus Blast, Signal Beam, Rock Tomb, Payback, so they usually never had a perfect answer and the fights could get messy fast with a hint of bad luck. In nuzlockes especially I dread those types.

How'd you end up fixing the underground for Plat anyway? I thought that was one of the few things you COULDN'T fix. I'm mega curious what you did to enable it, because I love the Underground to bits and would really like to play it in Plat.

You've been dissing Barry's "never miss, always dodge" strat but look at it in action lmao

RIP Shiva but LOL the dupes immediately after were hilarious.

Amazing that, immediately after saying pikachu's your fave, the ungrateful rat paralyzes your pokemon.

Man, those losses sting. I was kiiinda expecting a Chewy death since I have zero faith in pseudos before they hit their final stage, but Mystery and Aegis are rough. Considering the situation it was a good call to switch in Aegis, and Mystery went down stopping that Medicham from a sweep. That Ace Trainer duo was brutal considering how big of a doofus the AI can be.

It's difficult to pick through the box here because the two pokemon you lost are kind of as opposite as they can get. Aegis was a slow wall with minimal offensive force, Mystery was pure power.
Croagunk is a weird mix of slightly more bulk for a lot less speed and power (and a rough typing for a Nuzlocke), Graveller is more offensive but worse at being the party tank.

Honestly I kind want to say that Lickitung could be the best choice, since you're now at a level where it evolves. Lickilicky looks like a goober but is bulky and hits hard, with a lot of options for coverage. Could be cool to try one out for once?

The most humble and modest braggart you will ever meet.
Double Battles are the goddamn worst thing ever in Nuzlockes. So much can and does go wrong.
At least you got a Riolu egg as restitution. Just watch out if you use it against Byron. I think his Steelix has a Ground move.

Hello once again my lovely viewers!
This is a bit of a text-heavy chapter (which I'm enjoying after the madness of the last two chapters), but I hope you'll enjoy it anyways!

@redninjapuffle
I hope things start looking up too...
That's three really good Pokemon that I've lost now, and don't know what I'm going to do if that trend continues!


@0 Anonymous
Glad you managed catch up! And don't worry, you're not late - time is just an abstract construct anyway!
Later gens gave a lot of Psychics and Fighting types coverage to beat their checks, like Focus Blast, Signal Beam, Rock Tomb, Payback, so they usually never had a perfect answer and the fights could get messy fast with a hint of bad luck. In nuzlockes especially I dread those types.
That is actually exactly why I hate battling against fighting and psychic types! They have too much coverage and makes me very very afraid of fighting them. Mix that with their typically high attack/special attack stats and it makes them a one way trip to murder town!
How'd you end up fixing the underground for Plat anyway? I thought that was one of the few things you COULDN'T fix.
I don't know if this works for any other emulator, but in DeSmuME all you have to do is go into Emulation Settings and tick the box that says "Enable Advanced Bus-Level Timing" and you should be able to access the underground just fine! You still can't connect with other people but you can at least dig up some fossils!
You've been dissing Barry's "never miss, always dodge" strat but look at it in action lmao
I will maintain that his strategy sucks and that was simply a fluke. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
RIP Shiva but LOL the dupes immediately after were hilarious.
I have had the WORST luck with dupes in this run for some reason! I swear my catch rate is usually better than this!
Considering the situation it was a good call to switch in Aegis, and Mystery went down stopping that Medicham from a sweep.
I'm glad you think I made the right call. It really was a tough decision and I was second guessing myself after the deed was done.
Honestly I kind want to say that Lickitung could be the best choice, since you're now at a level where it evolves.
You know, I was actually considering using my Lickitung, but decided against it at the last moment. I probably will use her though if I end up losing another Pokemon. Unless I catch something better by then.

Thanks so much for checking out my run! It's been a bit of a bumpy ride, but I'm pretty proud of my little dumpster fire!


@Derogatory Trainer
Hey, I didn't expect to see you commenting on my run for a change! Welcome aboard none-the-less!
Double Battles are the goddamn worst thing ever in Nuzlockes.
You have never said a truer thing. Double battles are the creation of evil and nothing good ever comes from them.
Just watch out if you use it against Byron. I think his Steelix has a Ground move.
Thanks for the warning about Byron, but you shouldn't worry. I honestly don't trust Onix or Steelix in the first place anyway - they're basically honorary ground types in my opinion.


@Sombres
I better recover from this! I have put too much time into this run to watch it crumble before my eyes now!
Thanks for taking a look at my run too! It's always nice to have new people to share my stress with!

PEBfIwz.png

There it is; the Canalave Gym.
Before now I wasn't all that nervous to take it on, but after the last update I'm still feeling pretty hollow...
I can't sulk forever though, and I think it's time to introduce our two new teammates!


FIsN3Eu.png

As you can see, the team looks quite a bit different than it did before.


fKLFM4M.png

Before I formally introduce the new members, take a look at Dandy!
I found a Shiny Stone on Iron Island, so now I don't have to be afraid of sending him into battle anymore!


u7Uwx02.png

Next up is the baby of the team, although he's all grown up now!
I decided that "Anubis" would be a really fitting name for him; considering the circumstances that he as given to us...
Training him was pretty rough, but I'm hoping he'll have been worth it in the end.


NmNCNGs.png

Finally, I decided to add Glyph to the team.
Yeah sure, Glyph's got a pretty bad nature, but I haven't actually used the Porygon line in ages and I remember Porygon-Z being a really good Pokemon!
As for how I evolved our new friend, well - let's just say I installed some new software to help us out.


t2pJe2M.png

Now we're hopefully ready to take on the gym.
As always I'll put the training stuff in the spoiler for you all to peruse at your pleasure.

ZxqxDi1.png

f3WaosV.png

w4yoL69.png

Right away I knew that I needed somewhere better to train the new team members, so I finally got around to teaching Stella Fly by getting rid of Defog.
And may I say once again, screw Defog.


CZWtvJp.png

0UXFyu5.png

After I found a safer spot to grind I got to work leveling up Glyph.
Along the way our little digital duck learned Signal Beam, which is a huge boon.


6ZgxKl1.png

Once Glyph hit level thirty five, I decided it was evolution time.
I gave the little fella the Up-Grade I found back at the Galactic Base in Eterna City and began the super-secret evolution solution!

dlmM547.png

EWUVFyz.png

And we're done!
(Please don't call the police on me...)

Y8hvzAW.png

qpAqJz8.png

After that we exchanged Magnet Rise for Discharge and Glyph's moveset was finally looking up!


ckgbGi3.png

zm3yDlE.png

RK4lxZh.png

dmvrfyt.png

btIyIWS.png

iGbprm6.png

While I was training up Glyph our Riolu egg finally hatched and Anubis was brought into the world!
Careful isn't ideal since Aura Sphere is going to be weakened because of it, but Anubis is still going to be primarily a physical attacker so it's not a major loss.


z4VHYjF.png

I then gave him the Soothe Bell before getting him a massage in Veilstone and giving him whatever drugs I had lying in my bag.


Bp6pgdw.png

Vp0chCn.png

PyEKmsM.png

zuKBNOB.png

Then after a bit of switch training our little death hound finally had enough friendship to evolve into Lucario.

VBX1t7A.png

qnWGoKl.png

ud1ADB3.png

BUFOKCP.png

P0Yqy8M.png

WulyWcr.png

Anubis then got a whole new moveset; consisting of Swords Dance, Iron Tail, Aura Sphere and Close Combat.
All in all, not a bad movepool to work with.


75fAi7I.png

2DHfLNJ.png

After the newbies got up to par I spent some time leveling up everyone else to level forty two, which might be over-leveled but I honestly just don't care after what I went through in the last chapter.
Beau managed to finally learn Crunch thanks to the extra grinding, which is a huge upgrade from Bite.


vd12tJs.png

FZhol7s.png

I had Bruce learn Poison Fang over Air Cutter.


PxOaW8l.png

2MiDaW8.png

kWRDM5k.png

vHxGHt7.png

nh2aQlt.png

2IMAR8Y.png

And I had Dandy learn Petal Dance before finally evolving him into Roserade.

avFhqJc.png

Hey Gym Guy!
What words of wisdom do you have for us today?


fXtkNCj.png

BYfTKJg.png

6BEeRej.png

Thank you so much for that insight!
Anyway, I have both a fighting type as well as a ground type, so as long as I'm smart in here we should hopefully be okay.



29wgHpc.png

qnCkGNS.png

Time for our first trainer battle since that crippling loss on Iron Island...
Nervous? Who, me? Nooooo, I'm not worried at all!
(Please tell me I grinded enough for this...)


Uq7ES6V.png

So what you're saying is, if I'm stubborn enough I'll win?
Well damn, stubborn just so happens to be my middle name! Let's do this!


1k6n2zf.png

Level thirty eight!?
I guess I don't over-level as much as I thought I did...


JXHmJce.png

diBn2eS.png

We should still be fine though.
Show this over-grown metal snake what you're made of Bean!


IhybIqB.png

Atta boy Bean!


9dcL0MA.png

I feel that in my soul my friend...


jY0i2Mu.png

Maybe this gym won't be so bad.
Let's go ahead and cut through to Byron!
...
...
...


yDuNl8m.png

Here we are!
I'll go ahead and give a quick recap of how the rest of the gym went.


FEVXzeO.png

N4TMBj3.png

There was a lot of lifting and sliding.


68u6wtp.png

And way more Magnemites than there should have been!
There was also an unusually strong Scizor that nearly killed Bean so I had to bring Beau in to handle it, and Bean also got a level up. I didn't get screenshots for either of these events though so you're just gonna have to take my word for it.


xzmf9Ql.png

ZNM56nN.png

fGx1Xiz.png

That was a quick exchange, I didn't even have time to come up with a witty one-liner!
Uhh... get ready to dig your own grave shovel-man!
... That was terrible.


NxW4awy.png

Ep0IFhp.png

Dear lord, how many floating magnets are in this gym!?
Whatever, just throw some mud at it Bean.


YY3iAD8.png

Please don't do a lot of damage...


WBG68Nr.png

Aha, you can't stop the Bean train!
Bring down the mud buddy!


8iIvyrR.png

Bean has been doing so much work lately!
I'm so proud of him...


gbfLYqz.png

DJLTTav.png

Alright Bean, let's take care of it the same way we've taken care of every Steelix we've come across so far...

Jo5nkSD.png

Oh, come on!
What is up with being taunted by my recently deceased Pokemon almost immediately after I lost them every single time!
This game is cruel man...


kqXdeWb.png

Either way, I think I wanna bring Anubis in. See how he does in a real battle.


4H4wsmp.png

Time to show the world what you're made of Anubis!


4eoUOIQ.png

I was expecting an actual attack but I'm not gonna complain about a free switch in!


Gdtj99W.png

Kick his ass Anubis!


HVyemNk.png

RghR6EY.png

*sigh*
I guess I feel a little less bad about getting your egg now big guy. You are pretty tough...


MG6ueCP.png

Actually, Sturdy sucks in this generation! That's why your Bastiodon went down so quick!
I would not have risked a Close Combat if Sturdy was actually good here!


pJ305Q7.png

ldCe5x3.png

8QHpccb.png

We're really getting close to the end now folks!


6oJwGc9.png

AyNo416.png

DDcXWaQ.png

Yeah, I guess I do.
Feels like just yesterday I was setting out from Twinleaf Town with a little grass turtle at my side. Things really do change...


wcNi6gu.png

S1aRLkX.png

hq6HUGR.png

Way to rub salt in the wound pal. I wanted to give this to Aegis.
... And now I'm sad again.


CqKWrnC.png

YozCBpH.png

Oh hey Barry! Thanks, it was actually pretty easy!


0QrUEjl.png

Well I can promise you right now that isn't going to happen again.

Truly classics.

These are all absolutely fascinating questions that I just simply don't have an answer for!
Take Anubis for example. I literally just hatched him a few days ago, and he evolved the same day he hatched. Does that mean he's still a baby considering he's only a few days old or did he reach maturity the second he evolved into a Lucario? Should people be morally upset at me for throwing a baby into battle or should they be morally upset that I robbed him of a childhood?
Because the fact that I could take him down to the Day Care and breed him right now is really throwing me off, and however you feel like answering those questions still makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong here!

So, what you're saying is that I never even had a choice?
Sounds like the story of my life...

I guess that makes sense.
Lucas is probably the weakest of us, so he should stick to the beginner area.

Wait a minute... Are you implying that I'm weaker than Barry!
Talk about a low blow Professor...

Fine.
Azelf is my favorite of the trio anyway, so I guess I'm the real winner here.

Oh great, everyone duck and cover!

Oof, that doesn't look good.
If only I would have stopped that Galactic Grunt back then. Too bad I'm just too apathetic to put that much effort into stopping criminals!


2oFNo1M.png

5K3CXTv.png

He was just "conveniently" there huh?


OpyAiYW.png

I don't know if "impressive" is the word I would use here.
Maybe "deadly" or "terrible" would work better.


nVEdwWc.png

Probably a bomb... If I had to guess anyway.


FFtSo9j.png

ie9avbV.png

Professor you were literally talking about the legendary lake Pokemon like ten seconds ago.


JS7083i.png

Why are you concerned about Canalave? The explosion was half the region away!
This bomb could barely damage a swamp that was right next to a town, there's no way it touched Canalave!

I'm from California. Trust me when I say that I know PLENTY about earthquakes.


gjWzSnt.png

If this building collapses on top of me I will scream...
... In fury, not fear.


5AUP4FE.png

Once again, pretty sure this is a direct result of that Grunt I let get away with a bomb.


togcqqd.png

You really don't need to reiterate what we just established random sailor man.


XhFPsOc.png

Oh.
See, told you guys those bombs were stupid.


i2AOvWw.png

IBccHKS.png

wSCbsHl.png

See ya later Barry! Try not to get torn apart by any Floatzel on your way out!
He's an idiot, but a lovable idiot.


5Y2bv8N.png

No he really can't.
I think there may actually be something wrong with him.


9cIDbAA.png

GkOev6P.png

gUxuhha.png

Don't you worry Professor, this ain't the first time I had to go in and mess with Team Galactic.
It also probably won't be the last!


DeywEZo.png

Too late.


6lJeR1s.png

zzzm1cR.png

An explosion Lucas. Try and keep up here.


XJt6pzK.png

I guess we'll go see what's up at Lake Valor before I close out this chapter!
See you guys there!
...
...
...


x2RonJI.png

Here we are. Guess we better head in.
Considering how little damage this bomb did to Pastoria though the lake should be fine.
... Right?


yDuQqW2.png

Oh sweet mother of Kyogre...
That poor Magikarp...


bdu6y2B.png

Alright it's one thing threatening to blow up a swamp or some old ruins, but I draw the line at destroying lakes!
Put up your dukes good sir I demand compensation!


wAfvJ8K.png

...
He wasn't a trainer so I couldn't do anything to him...


dNECfeA.png

Poor little guy...
I always felt bad for these Magikarp, even as a kid.


LzR1GKl.png

V1vvVsJ.png

You!
You're a trainer, so I demand compensation from you!


FKDMuvL.png

vyIPzVx.png

Ahh, I feel better now.
Let's go check out that cave in the middle of lake now!
...


Yjzj4eA.png

Beau leveled up by the way.


81zQ2g2.png

Now let's see what's goin' on in there...


2eKtizR.png

Hello there Lake Man, please tell me your lake secrets.


mCQSlLg.png

KXK6rRr.png

That's not a very fun secret Lake Man!


dkaEFNk.png

847ynhx.png

Aw thanks, I've been told that my face haunts people's nightmares!


pl9iYp7.png

Yeah that sounds like something I would do.
I think I remember wanting a bike or something? Eh whatever, it was a long time ago.
Ya gotta stop holding grudges dude; it's gonna make your hair fall out early!


Td0II0I.png

640XN8C.png

Fbgdy3z.png

No wonder you guys hate me so much! All I do is oppose you!


CIbS9AG.png

Your hair makes it look like you have little kitty ears~


yEL0389.png

Oh well, let's just get this done.
Saturn is the least intimidating of the three Galactic Commanders, so I'm not worried about this battle.


rH6TXBK.png

n3HJBTk.png

XZTjH3L.png

Thanks for the free exp dude!


m9KDlHk.png

*gasp*
Wait a minute... You wanna be my friend!
Oh buddy, we are gonna be the best of friends!


Ke1r5vu.png

x0z918E.png

SXvtFbF.png

If I capture Dialga I will!


Xc53XSF.png

R1DkOIz.png

rhyybYA.png

Oh no, Lucas might be in trouble. I am so worried.
I will have to rush and save him.
...


EHAOZ8B.png

Anyway, that's where I'm gonna leave you all for today.
Just to let you all know, there probably won't be a new update next week. I promise this will be the only week that I skip though!
Next week is my final week of school for the semester, so I have a ton of work that I'm gonna be doing. Even though I'm going to try and get done with that work as fast as I can, I still don't think I'm gonna be able to post an update.
That's because Cyberpunk 2077 is coming out next week as well! (As long as there isn't another delay...) I've been waiting years for this game to come out, so it's likely going to be stealing all of my attention for a little while at least.
That being said, I'll see you all in two weeks most likely. Bye for now!

The most humble and modest braggart you will ever meet.
Hey, I didn't expect to see you commenting on my run for a change! Welcome aboard none-the-less!
Hopefully it's a non-sinking ship!
And yeah I saw you were doing one in your signature on my own thread. Which at least proves that they do work.

Byron is now Bygone.
I genuinely had no memory of Sturdy being shit back in this gen though.
Like wow. What a useless ability to be able to resist moves that miss almost all the time.

Also:

Rowan's going to be as annoyed as I was by the unnecessary Sword and Shield kung-fu bear then.
All his research. Gone down the drain.

Fairly simple yet entertaining—I like this run! And it's good to see you recovering after your losses. Double Battles really are tough, especially when they're both Ace Trainers. (The two on Iron Island actually can be battled separately, but it's hard to notice that opportunity.) But Anubis can use that Flash Cannon TM even if Aegis isn't around anymore, and Lonely isn't a terrible nature for Glyph; if you give them a TM like Return or even Secret Power, they can have a good physical attack to use whenever Download raises their Attack.

Also, while Platinum is one of my favorite games, I do get your frustration about not being able to actually do anything to influence the plot. And this is the part of the game where that's most evident, unfortunately.

Hello my friends, I have returned!
... Okay, so I know I'm a bit late but I'm here now!
I am also officially free from school until spring, and I'm ready to hop back into Platinum!
Let's do this!

@Derogatory Trainer
And yeah I saw you were doing one in your signature on my own thread. Which at least proves that they do work.
I wasn't actually sure it would work myself! I kinda just wanted to make a banner for my signature since I saw that all the cool kids were doing it!
Rowan's going to be as annoyed as I was by the unnecessary Sword and Shield kung-fu bear then.
All his research. Gone down the drain.
I... completely forgot about Kubfu and Urshifu. I guess I was so underwhelmed by the Isle of Armor that they just slipped away from my memory!
Sucks for Rowan though.


@redninjapuffle
Don't forget cosmog
Rowan is never going to recover from this...
Damn you modern legendaries!


@QuietGuardian
Fairly simple yet entertaining—I like this run!
Thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying the run!
Double Battles really are tough, especially when they're both Ace Trainers. (The two on Iron Island actually can be battled separately, but it's hard to notice that opportunity.)
I despise double battles and would normally go out of my way to avoid them, but I was feeling overly cocky on Iron Island and unfortunately Aegis and Mystery paid the price for my hubris...
But Anubis can use that Flash Cannon TM even if Aegis isn't around anymore
Unfortunately Anubis has a special attack lowering nature, so I'm trying to avoid giving him more special attacks then necessary. The only real reason I was going to give Flash Cannon to Aegis was just because he was in desperate need of a steel type attack.
Lonely isn't a terrible nature for Glyph; if you give them a TM like Return or even Secret Power, they can have a good physical attack to use whenever Download raises their Attack.
You know what... you're absolutely right!
Also, while Platinum is one of my favorite games, I do get your frustration about not being able to actually do anything to influence the plot. And this is the part of the game where that's most evident, unfortunately.
I'll admit, I'm kind of exaggerating my annoyance for comedy's sake. Platinum's one of my favorite Pokemon games too, and you kind of have to expect some sorta loss of control when playing Pokemon games... unfortunately.
Doesn't make it any less annoying though!

Thanks for checking out my run, always nice to see new faces!

jejNolg.png

Here we are, back at the destroyed Lake Valor.


FMTdM4Y.png

Now that our new best friend Saturn decided to run off with his tail between his legs, we need to head over to Lake Verity to rescue Lucas. My favorite pastime.
And as fun as it would be to keep you all entertained during the walk over there I think I'll just skip ahead for simplicity's sake.
See you all in a minute!
...
...
...


28Je9km.png

Here we are.
Also, please don't question how it suddenly got so late. Let's just pretend that's how long it took me to walk from Lake Valor to Lake Verity! Okay? Okay.


JUroc50.png

sAonaHp.png

Hi Rowan! You look like you're doing well!


mg5T0Vy.png

WxAleG7.png

Do I have to help Lucas?...


cxMmHCp.png

Alright! Stop glaring at me!
I'll go help the little leech...


7FA1CAT.png

maerbaG.png

Well, looks like Rowan's got this one taken care of at least!


uztEPlT.png

xqzBonW.png

I'm gonna tell you guys right now. You are going to inevitably fail at both of the things you just described to me.


ws3k5m9.png

I could not have asked for a better type match-up!
Alright boys, let 'er rip!


Ncb7uM5.png

SoWAMix.png

4txs69j.png

7y5wSHf.png

Excellent job fellas, now finish 'em off.


lMUnwUi.png

RAsS2cq.png

Now that's what I like to call a job well done!


eUXbIR8.png

Wait a minute. I forgot that I don't have my catch here yet!
I think the only things in the grass are Starly and Bidoof, and I don't want to just waste my catch...


ZakjItf.png

ZAbcGq4.png

That means it's time to go fishing!
I'm sure we all know what I'm gonna be getting, but let's just pretend it's gonna be a surprise!


js5L7WN.png

F2je2uK.png

Whaaat? A Magikarp? What a surprise!


KVlKJ8G.png

In all honesty though, I'm always happy to catch a Magikarp in nuzlockes.
After all, Gyarados is one of the best water types you can get!


fWehGNv.png

Alas, I already have a Bean.
Off to the PC you go Sushi!


ayTMlSs.png

Alright, now we can fight these grunts!


SmCFUWB.png

Not if I knock yours into orbit first!


CHr4Su7.png

zBbSQR3.png

I win!


SlCx4Lh.png

Oof.
Buddy I got some bad news for you...


Sfqr357.png

DyKRapA.png

You're not getting that bonus.


OZzAsyb.png

And with that final grunt, we've arrived at Lucas and Mars!
Lucas, calm down. Use your big boy words.


lqXSPAm.png

When you say "barely," do you actually mean "instantly?"
Because I absolutely understand how you could get those words mixed up.


PtOXAHc.png

Aw c'mon Mars!
I thought we had something special...


yk3H9If.png

I know!
*sigh*
What fond memories...


1XYSmSv.png

Sorry about that Mars.
But to be fair you absolutely had it coming.


G8rxtFM.png

iX6LQi4.png

No, please. There is absolutely no need to do that; I remember you and your demon-cat!


yR6rAkm.png

6YxTHbn.png

Oh, hell no.
I would rather jump into the lake and drown then ever hear you call me and Lucas a couple ever again.


wKLBY4L.png

I'm going to have to eliminate you for that comment.
I hope you understand.


M2gmiEM.png

I'm not afraid of you this time Mars!
I've come a long way since the Valley Windworks!


JHiRD2y.png

Time to make your combat debut Glyph!


dcQewTl.png

I hoping for a special attack boost, but I think we'll still be fine.


9Niz0zY.png

Take her out Glyph!


UjaFcAU.png

Okay then. Take her out on the next one!


Zm6XFI4.png

That's my little digital duck!
We really need to get you a better psychic type move.
...
I really miss Mystery...


o4k61P5.png

Bronzor? No problem, I'll just keep Glyph in to see what it can do.


yJIiVoT.png

YVGxKoo.png

That... didn't do a lot of damage, but I don't think any of my other Pokemon can get through this thing's defenses...
So Glyph's staying in I guess!


ABMg1xB.png

gHQppX1.png

Good one Glyph!
One more hit and it's down and out!


m3cKauC.png

This shouldn't do a lot of damage...


0Dqo3UL.png

It didn't!
Finish it off Glyph!


V1FVDmT.png

Woo! Two down, one to go!


WpBYRfl.png

The big kitty has returned.


5FgR8cQ.png

Alright Anubis, do your thing!


lTjg0Mt.png

Talk about a great move to switch in on!
No annoying flinches for me today!


sskrNyv.png

MPmtoLP.png

She's faster, but can't really do much against a steel type.


CciCRnP.png

Let's show her what TRUE POWER really looks like...


7XOkRHF.png

ANNIHILATE HER!!!


JoDxXNW.png

FCIUrkz.png

vlccFYL.png

That was fun!


tKgZDuQ.png

Don't feel so down Mars. After all, I've defeated all of the Galactic Commanders at least once!
Actually you're the only one I've defeated twice...
Hmm. Maybe you should feel bad after all...


G7rlpwa.png

Actually now that I'm thinking about it, aren't you the only Commander that I'm going to fight three times? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna battle you again on Mt. Coronet...
Ouch, that's gotta be a punch to your ego...


vLOZ7FO.png

Yeah it really shouldn't!
Galactic did you dirty.


6fhku7x.png

KZu4ITW.png

3QCS2Gm.png

YOeKgiE.png

See you again soon Mars!


0GBoLVg.png

Oh wait, you're still talking.


9WXW2le.png

yIv0plC.png

AOOVDAb.png

fx1BsAH.png

Are... are you almost done talking?
I've kinda got places I need to be...


TPuLY8I.png

f9GdhTy.png

MXRKCZc.png

BCqvXzZ.png

I don't think you have Uxie just yet.
Unless Barry managed to screw that up already...


SttdM5K.png

Oh you're finally leaving?
Bye for real this time! Beat you again soon!


dUaLKyZ.png

Yeah, except with more explosions and a lot less rambling.


JVmAOHx.png

dCK7e02.png

dvAiLtY.png

Professor this is not the first time I've gone up against these guys.
I feel like I should have received a punch-card or something at this point...


9nXot5Y.png

tAul6lV.png

Probably not.
I told you that I should have gone instead of him!


nix0Fyf.png

*sigh*
I guess that's my cue to head out.
I'm pretty sure that the entrance to Mt. Coronet up by Celestic Town is the best one to go through, so I'll see you guys when I get there!
...
...
...


rPN6RJF.png

tndJcDy.png

l0EW25s.png

On the way there I decided to teach Glyph Return since it doesn't know any normal moves at the moment, and there's an off chance that an attack boost from Download could come in handy.
I'd like to thank @QuietGuardian for suggesting I do this!
Also, Glyph leveled up as well.


ZrmMUOa.png

Here we are!
Let's just get in and out.


hscjQt8.png

Good ol' Mt. Coronet.
The most confusing mountain in all of the Pokemon series! Or, at least it is in my humble opinion.


Q6owNQx.png

Ugh, great. I need to teach someone Strength.


8Hv71Bp.png

I don't want to add an HM slave to the team, so one of you guys are gonna have to learn this.
Beau, you could do with some move variety, so I guess you're gonna have to take one for the team.


7hWtvsO.png

I just realized that Spark and Thunder Fang both have the same amount of base power.
So, hindsight is telling me I should keep Spark since it has 100% accuracy...


44g18AQ.png

Buuuut, Thunder Fang has a chance to flinch along with paralysis!
Hmm...


fWLqfjU.png

Vpc5jtz.png

I may be a fool for this decision, but that's a problem for future Pika to worry about!


eQJnI4o.png

Let's move some boulders Beau!


IjmMdsB.png

Excellent.


ONjQTvI.png

Now we can move on!


3vI0xmo.png

Why is there fog in a cave!?
If I encounter a trainer in here I am not going to be happy!


Vqz0kUl.png

Okay I was overreacting, there was no trainers in here.


eG1InoG.png

Farewell strange cave fog - I won't miss you.


9Se6k05.png

jZfsOdD.png

Just gonna grab this from the Regice cave before heading to the exit!


ZeZcZlS.png

Freedom! Sweet, sweet freedom!


fLHrhFP.png

And right into the frigid cold!
The northern routes are the prettiest in this game as far as I'm concerned, but they're also the hardest to navigate through!


wO8JZ77.png

oHUEPK5.png

Whatever you say strange bridge lady!


d4Pgb7T.png

Perfect.
Dandy could seriously use some screen time!


oYXbW21.png

And done!


eybA2hw.png

No more screen time for you Dandy, get away from that thing!


C7vciwh.png

I bring in Bean and what do I get? A crit, right off the bat!


hcEYdjJ.png

Just take that devil horse out already, please?


gdjKBmz.png

I think I'll have Dandy finish this battle up.


9gY332y.png

sRrDnzr.png

NylM9fh.png

Tasty.


OWi8HvT.png

I almost forgot, I get a new encounter on this route!


PsLlok6.png

A Sneasel? That's not bad at all!
I'll take him!


TPPVseO.png

Alright, Glyph shouldn't kill it if I have it just attack once...
Right?


g1bXn2R.png

Ko8lfgR.png

Dammit Glyph!


w2fgp77.png

Whatever, let's just move on.
There'll be more chances up ahead.


wN51zI9.png

I completely understand! The cold and I don't get along either!


yfgkCY4.png

An Ambipom?
Dandy should be fine.


TdCOfuU.png

Uh oh...


Pnss5so.png

HOA10hR.png

That didn't heal enough for me to be comfortable with staying in!
Time to swap out Dandy!


gS5Ff6Y.png

Take it down Anubis!


8B9s6Oa.png

EZkLE6z.png

yN3VNV7.png

Thank you!


J6rSOAF.png

Anubis should be fine.
I think I will heal him up first though...


JmVexnz.png

0uRCmSW.png

What did I say?
Nothing to worry about!


1rPv2vY.png

Let's finish the job!


QX3q3Q2.png

pHyXPNZ.png

hAImrQq.png

And we're in the clear.


y5QEOdP.png

The snow is just gonna keep getting deeper, and I'm just gonna keep getting slower.


0TYDLSY.png

I don't think you're prepared for what I have to offer!


ftsP3YK.png

Beau should be able to take care of this!


uyYlwYq.png

Charge up...


Wt0eXzY.png

... AND FIRE!!!


jUSzA8x.png

Okay one more hit.


ARLeP7Z.png

MZyMTAn.png

C0oTjqZ.png

Perfect victory.


RVy9H7A.png

I'm gonna end up freezing to death up here...
How am I able to walk through snow that goes up to my neck so easily!?


ua27QqJ.png

Please.
I'm a professional.


YYY6ltW.png

SKg0nfZ.png

See?


AfeKasz.png

Thank Articuno, a rest stop.


zcy9ILC.png

Just give me a second to shake the snow outta my boots and I'll be out of your hair.


JOpsJar.png

Thank you kind sir!
I guess I better head back out into the endless frozen abyss again...


KFKqHia.png

No new catch here, we're still on the same route as the Sneasel.


ig9Xb5b.png

Those sound like fighting words my friend!


EoYEQpe.png

You fool, you absolute maniac!
Do you have any idea what you just did!?


A4LHMxh.png

66VQeAe.png

You just fueled my not-a-fairy-type-yet blood lust!
There is nothing I enjoy more than returning to old games and defeating Pokemon that are now fairy types with moves they used to be weak to!
It genuinely brings me more joy than it probably should.


cDzPWUE.png

Oh right, you have more Pokemon.
Go ahead and finish up here Beau. I'm satisfied now.


v5feZUT.png

cnI18jL.png

p5vJZmm.png

Today has been a good day.


MGqLhSz.png

Oh no...
HERE IT COMES!


t0nZqj1.png

I CAN'T SEE, HEAR, OR FEEL ANYTHING!
IS THAT YOU MAYLENE!?



WiPORdx.png

YES!


w59I4zu.png

WHY!?


82LK77H.png

qOiL02e.png

FgWkwzy.png

I'M WEARING A SKIRT MAYLENE!
I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH YOU!



ly6TUV2.png

I THINK THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO DIE!


NtwwGzS.png

y7fvu7f.png

UUVXpu2.png

WAIT, WHAT?
WHERE DID YOU GO?
MAYLENE!?

...
Guess I'm on my own now...


2gH8QtS.png

YOU'RE A DIRTY LIAR!


bli0QbG.png

Nope, not keeping Bruce in on that thing.


Z4SJTRo.png

Atta boy Bean, take it out.


elkjia5.png

klteXvi.png

kKiDXmo.png

A little bit of an overkill, but I won't complain.


yIHseD9.png

I'll keep Bean in, let him finish this up.


IKLXOS4.png

RE5d0XM.png

WTZaxBm.png

Bean really has come into his own, hasn't he?


Wnjft8v.png

OH LORD WE'RE BACK TO THIS!
WHERE DID YOU COME FROM LITTLE BOY?



fienRtt.png

BUT I DIDN'T!? YOU POPPED OUT AT ME!?


PvUv1ax.png

Bruce, just kill your cousin so we can keep moving.


PQREFfh.png

Thanks.


uRpQQkt.png

KDSdLJy.png

I MUCH PREFER THE RAIN OVER THE SNOW LADY!
AND ESPECIALLY OVER A VERY DEADLY BLIZZARD!
WHY ARE WE OUT HERE RIGHT NOW!?



BUPplhi.png

I really wish they would stop sending out ice types so I could let Bruce get some experience...


ZhLnUJ5.png

Then again, I really should have been expecting this.


1Sz9Ww0.png

This was a dead-end, fantastic.


1fJhIXE.png

I'M AM MEMBER OF THE "NOT WANTING TO DIE IN A BLIZZARD" CLAN!


ECiWKXr.png

Finally, something Bruce can fight.


k8KNlvT.png

He even got a level up from it!


vgDzJ6z.png

Sir, I'm sorry for barging into your house, but I need a break from the deadly blizzard outside.
I promise I'll only be here for a minute...


IMKCUfr.png

yN2Wevt.png

You are never getting that back.

It was literally in his backyard.
...
I was serious, he's never getting this thing back.


taHh8jC.png

MORE SNOW! I DON'T WANT MORE SNOW!!!
I WANT TO GO HOME!



RsGCvMj.png

HOW CAN YOU FEEL ANYTHING RIGHT NOW!?


r6xsZRh.png

Ugh. Swap out Bruce...


yxaIHVo.png

We beat him.


SckMFOF.png

I can't taste anything. I think my tongue is frozen...


i7eXx0S.png

ANOTHER HOUSE!
SALVATION!



vCHekWd.png

It's... a little dark in here, but maybe her power's just out!
I know that feeling...


RwPCtUC.png

Yeah, you do live right in the middle of a constant blizzard...
Why would anyone choose to live here?


Jn1keqB.png

HJd9VOl.png

Aw, that's sweet of you!


vaMqb7D.png

u4xDg5o.png

Awesome. I'll go ahead and leave you in peace now.


cgZ0iMi.png

Oh wait, I forgot to thank her!


Jrgz4EV.png

Oh.
...


yshvsjA.png

iyD20cs.png

I thought this guy was a trainer, but it turns out he's just a scavenger.
Which is fair as I am also a scavenger, but I just really hate other people trying to take my stuff.
Find your own loot asshole!


6EUg12c.png

Anyway, we can get a new catch right here!


NGufNWW.png

*gasp*
A Swinub? That's so good!
I am not risking an attack, this little guy is going straight into the ball!


EKgJazy.png

Yes!


A4Ii8Rl.png

Maybe see you later Snork!
If I lose anyone else I'll probably be adding him to the team.


CWWEfzI.png

Let's get out of this damn blizzard already!
...
...
...


MaOCR0z.png

On my way out I battled a few more trainers and Bruce leveled up again!


rApC6nc.png

Finally!
We're free of that blizzard.
And we can get another encounter right here! Let's see what it is...


Dpj7eoa.png

Of course.
I hope for a Snover and all I get is disappointment.


ut1Evgh.png

Barry?
Get down from there right now before you fall on your head!


EUovoho.png

...
Forget I said anything. I hope you do fall and break your skull!


XqgZj6M.png

I'm not blind Barry!
... Okay I might be a little blind after that blizzard, but that will go away!


966bx99.png

I would have that already if Rowan had just sent me here first instead of you!


YTA1uAg.png

No. Barry! You get down here right now, don't make me come after you!


qCKoYkP.png

You little bastard! I know you can hear me!


YydBVVy.png

Ugh, great. I guess we have to deal with Candice first.
Hooray...


LpjUdTc.png

Welp, here we are.
Snowpoint City.


RNpbDEQ.png

And there's the gym, which I'm gonna save for the next update!
The next time I see you guys we're going to be entering the belly of the beast, here's hoping I don't let the entire team die to a ghost in an indoor blizzard!
So you all again soon!

The most humble and modest braggart you will ever meet.
This route was spookier than I remember...and the trainers have a way more diverse set of Pokemon than i remember.
I'm not even sure I played Platinum anymore.
Swinub is good tho. Could you have even evolved Sneasel if you caught it?

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
Pika Claus is here to give a gift in the form of an update to all you fine folks!
Grab a warm drink and settle in as we make our way through this snow covered nuzlocke chapter!

@Derogatory Trainer
This route was spookier than I remember...and the trainers have a way more diverse set of Pokemon than i remember.
Oh yeah. This is the part of the game when random trainers start having really strong Pokemon for no good reason.
This is also the part of the game where I've had a lot of close calls in some of my previous undocumented nuzlockes!
Could you have even evolved Sneasel if you caught it?
Not at the moment no, but according to Bulbapedia there's a Razor Claw at the Galactic HQ in Veilstone. So I would have been able to get a Weavile pretty soon!
That is if Glyph hadn't ruined things for me...

KP852xT.png

Alright.
I'm actually really afraid of this gym battle. Candice has always terrorized me whenever I've played through a Sinnoh game (although that may have been in part due to the fact that I almost always pick Turtwig) and I honestly don't feel very prepared...


uU6d9NI.png

There's no point in putting off the inevitable though, so let's get this done...


l9vRmLg.png

xDLnbU8.png

HA! I've fooled you all!
Ya'll should know me well enough by now to know that I won't go into a battle that I'm really afraid of unprepared! We're doing Fuego Ironworks first, since I know that TM for Flamethrower is in here somewhere.


K8pkcSE.png

Now let's get a move o-


M0TH8dQ.png

-oooooooh shit!


LdXenxc.png

I forgot this was a spinning tile puzzle.
*sigh*
Dammit.


uH7h04D.png

Well that's certainly not Flamethrower.


L3eBjuV.png

ABuCfEs.png

You're not Flamethrower either!


oUdsChm.png

Glyph will you please take care of these guys for me?


tUWn1E1.png

D62EWEj.png

hpg2Ds5.png

gy58K8U.png

Thank you.
Download is a really great ability when it gives me the right boost!


aDx6zoC.png

Useless!


e8vlmA4.png

Why can't things ever be easy?
All I wanted to do was grab the TM and get out of here, and now I'm stuck going in circles!


DCQjCrg.png

And I have to battle a bunch of exp fodder!
Why can't you guys just be nice and hand over the TM like gym leaders do?


rlSoXen.png

He literally only had Magnemite on his team.
Why are there so many trainers with only Magnemite in this game!?
Diversify a little!


ATz7UZb.png

Who wants to bet that's the TM down there by the boiler?


0d43siY.png

Because this certainly isn't it!


K8NB3Vf.png

wlR2QYA.png

Now we have a shard of every color in the game!
But still no Flamethrower.


UElhXO5.png

I don't even have anything I can use this on!


GHPIo7L.png

I. Hate. Spinning. Tiles.


eTmG9ry.png

Great! This is exactly what I was looking for!
Guess we can all go home now.


eoSQzav.png

No, I'm having the time of my life!
In fact, I wish there were more spinning tiles!


TS3NZwA.png

nTTxJuv.png

At least you seem to be having fun Glyph.


0V3UzsG.png

This has to be it. I have been absolutely everywhere else in this factory by now!


RWNVKcG.png

If this isn't the TM and I was actually just misremembering I will cry.


O5m6R1q.png

THANK YOU ARCEUS!!!


pCEYbTn.png

Now to just teach it to-


kv2h4Un.png

-one... of... my Pokemon?
None of them can learn Flamethrower? I was almost completely sure that Glyph could learn it!
...


U6ne3zP.png

Well that was the world's biggest waste of time.
Oh well, maybe we'll find something good in the grass at the very least.


2EaLGjg.png

*gasp*
SHE IS EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED!
I was so sure I lost all my chances to get a fire type, and yet the rng decided to take pity on my poor battered soul!


cmhhz3b.png

I am NOT risking Glyph killing another good Pokemon!
I'm just gonna chuck balls at her until she decides she's had enough!


uwrb246.png

YES!!!
It took nearly twenty Ultra Balls, but the Magmar is mine!


gKc2Zok.png

I decided to name her Ruby, since she's the best treasure that I managed to get out of this little side-adventure!


TFce6BF.png

Now we have a fighting chance against Candice!
Let's go take a better luck at our new friend.
...
...
...


HQsdUdJ.png

Alright, she's quirky. Which means nothing is boosted, but no stats are decreased either.
Honestly, not a bad nature for a play-through!


AEnfykq.png

I'm gonna spend a bit of time training up Ruby to get her on par with the team and ready to take on the gym, but once I'm done we're heading straight for Candice!
...
...
...


QSYYBHI.png

I'm back, and it's finally gym time.
Before we get onto the main attraction though, I'll leave the grinding stuff in the spoiler below. Not much happened, but it's there if you wanna take a look!

HgzQcTA.png

9P2DWBo.png

I went ahead and taught Ruby Flamethrower.
She learned it via level up, so I didn't even have to use the TM I found!


jpyfina.png

I also picked up a Magmarizer at some point.
I honestly don't remember where I grabbed this thing from, but I'm glad to have it none-the-less!


75Y96IB.png

I think everyone knows what's gonna be happening next...


VAZrs6q.png

J0nlfiC.png

I feel dirty evolving Pokemon like this, but I'm not able to get trade evolutions any other way!

OtbonEQ.png

Here's our girl by the way!
She's all grown up and ready to burn this gym to the ground!


Hs6N4Pf.png

Here's the team I'm bringing in to fight Candice.
Don't worry about Tim by the way. It's just here to... observe.


Cmk8wcD.png

Hi there gym guy!
What sort of wisdom do you have for us today?


UHhccro.png

No.


PYbvodI.png

Ah yes, the classic "injure yourself to fight the gym leader" gym puzzle.
My favorite.


46kiIYV.png

X1IRUih.png

That's the plan my man!
I also have Bean for her Piloswine and Anubis in the back if anything goes wrong.
(Also Tim's here in case I need a free switch in on the Froslass...)


MJzw096.png

Focus is my middle name! Don't worry gym guy, I got this.


VjPzhVz.png

Here we go!


2QkmELp.png

Ouch.


mPS4Bic.png

And ouch again.
This... is gonna take a minute.
...
...
...


NXytv95.png

HW8qfSW.png

This was all you guys missed from me fighting the gym trainers.


XiKn6yB.png

And now we're here!
I would have shown you guys more of the gym puzzle, but I didn't want to take ten minutes worth of screenshots of me struggling to complete a puzzle meant for children.
Anyway, let's start the slaughter!


s7F3aP1.png

Not really no, but I kinda have to.


fDFOQW1.png

Oh, well I'm as tough as they come so you're in for a treat!


lt22PZs.png

rchm1ok.png

Okay, I'll give you Pokemon and romance. But how much focus does fashion really take?
... Then again I'm not really a fashionista, and if I bad talk fashion too much I feel like my sister will appear out of the shadows to kill me.
So I'm just gonna let that one go!


gICI4SF.png

I don't lose Candice, but I'll make you lose your focus!
(That was terrible! My pre-battle one-liner game has been seriously off lately...)


GlRcC4Z.png

RcGn1Vz.png

GyxOQMX.png

2EMFgaj.png

Alright, a Sneasel.
These little guys were giving me loads of trouble while grinding up Ruby, but Anubis should be able to handle this one no problem!


EY7uxPk.png

That... should be neutral.
Right?


CHunHs5.png

It was neutral and Anubis was barely hurt.
Now I'll show you what REAL pain feels like!


yuxFvsn.png

Pygv6Wh.png

I am now officially alright with not having caught that Sneasel last chapter, these guys are annoying!


z4MH10K.png

Fall back Anubis!
I am not risking you getting out-sped and killed by an Earthquake.


ysH8Fax.png

Alright Bean, you're up my boy!


tzo6vnt.png

UxEKmpm.png

That does way more damage than I'm comfortable with!
But, as long as she doesn't get a crit Bean should be able to take this thing out in one hit...


x5gujgG.png

Please don't crit...


UhpE1Ug.png

HELL YES!
TERMINATE IT BEAN!



FBsY5uV.png

3vIeLai.png

That's my boy!


FCjN4qt.png

And here's the storm...


Hn5II1B.png

Come on Ruby, time to fulfill your destiny!


rg7gvUi.png

You're so scared of your impending doom that you can't even hit us properly!


WvGHTFR.png

Fire away Ruby!


OfEdslc.png

LzVq3D5.png

Magmar and Magmortar are really tough!
I've never used one before now and I'm honestly impressed!


k8J0pMK.png

It's time.


h0WXVlS.png

I want that hail gone.
As long as it's still up that Froslass is benefiting from it.


SYEmHow.png

In order to do that though, I need to heal Bean.
All Ruby needs to do is take whatever this frozen demon decides to throw at her for a single turn.


Qmhd2fO.png

Not ideal, but still better than getting a Shadow Ball to the face.


lqMYTCD.png

Welp Tim, I really want a clean switch into Bean, so it's been nice knowing ya!
...


Pxq7hBI.png

... I can't do it.
I hate sacrificing Pokemon in nuzlockes, it feels a little underhanded. That's not to say I won't or haven't done it when I need to, it's just that I try to avoid it when I can.


ygVBGN4.png

Well, I guess Tim gets to live another day.
I'm sure Bean can take whatever this thing throws at him!


fTQQyrL.png

Hold on buddy!


AxFkdUd.png

Alright, I think we're in the clear...


KgQQhMR.png

I really wish you would stop doing that!


jaHRqIJ.png

Great job Bean, your work here is done now!


ZS2OUj7.png

I know, I could have brought Ruby back in.
But the rain is going to weaken her Flamethrowers, and Glyph is immune to Shadow Ball.
I'm sure Glyph can handle this, it's got an amazing special defense stat.


7AXk5EF.png

That's not the boost I was hoping for, but I'm just going to have to work with it!


jtd0xBy.png

Please, for the love of Lunala don't do a lot of damage...


EdxENuG.png

Alright, I can work with that.


E0LJ46X.png

Unless she keeps doing that!


w9Wwu2Y.png

Because now we're going to be seeing a lot of that.


hB1HvNa.png

Stop. Doing. That.


yY2V7Bi.png

Yes! Good job Glyph!


5hzFBka.png

Oh... looks like this might take a little while...


Ynv2QnD.png

No crits please!


QMkVtLB.png

Yes, good Glyph! Please keep doing that!


locRG8d.png

iM7RIrJ.png

Oh come on!


KMDdyzi.png

Haha! How does it feel to get a taste of your own medicine!
Now's your chance Glyph!


rfH6ZSK.png

...
You bring disappointment to this family Glyph.


rREFrAE.png

This thing must nearly be out of PP for this move by now!


GPQKZuE.png

Yes, just a few more of those and we're home free!


KHVz2dX.png

I would have tried one of Glpyh's other moves, but since it's holding a Mind Plate I think Psybeam will do the most damage here.


vcmdoZN.png

Oh great, I didn't know this thing had Psychic!
At least this means it should be out of Blizzards!


C13FZ1N.png

That was more damage than I'm comfortable with!


tQmjaWV.png

uzqIecM.png

Drink up Glyph, we're in for the long haul.


4OWViYe.png

PNNSzPy.png

That's all a crit Psychic does?
We're gonna be fine!


SiUdiZr.png

She's gonna run outta Psychics eventually!


q8xXeDB.png

I really wish you would stop doing that pal!


nChvuIf.png

aOKVChz.png

CEDsiVN.png

THAT'S REALLY NOT GOOD!


sUTex4t.png

7yZQjgk.png

I can't believe I'm saying this, but thank goodness for drugs.


7rHzFHv.png

vvqc3cy.png

Seriously, twice in a row?!
I don't have more drugs that'll fix this!


WE88eSC.png

That is the opposite of what we need right now Glyph!


RqXlyPd.png

Looks like we're playing the heal-stall game.
You've gotta run out of Psychics at some point!


OcLXkBL.png

UJc7bQn.png

STOP!!!


2SLxMvy.png

My poor heart can't take this...


hB6tzWC.png

If this lowers my special defense again it's over...


1BsSSHX.png

It didn't lower my stats, but this is getting risky.
I don't want to swap to anyone else though since then I'll still have to worry about Shadow Ball...


5St2EbS.png

Wait... she's finally out of Psychics, she can only Double Team now!
This is our chance Glyph!


a3dEj3F.png

Finish her!


HAbX3Ro.png

AC96CyP.png

It's over... the snow demon has been slain.


Iyw666l.png

ihZjZuK.png

I literally just stalled you out Candice.
I don't think I'm worthy of such high praise...


2Ftm8uo.png

wFZebV6.png

Finally!
Seven badges down, one to go.


A0UzGJN.png

DtYOpZK.png

hbkQI0j.png

Great, now I can go after my little blonde moron!


nYQb69M.png

J4HcfHh.png

EmHT0rO.png

7UxKoBD.png

yDB7bOF.png

I just noticed that there's a lot of sorta... "technical moves" in this generation.
Specifically that seems to be what what gym leaders give out; Grass Knot from Gardenia and Brine from Wake are examples of some others.


F8dLIBt.png

At least we're finally done here!


zV0khGn.png

I just realized that Ruby had Faint Attack the entire time.
That battle could have been so much shorter than it was!
...


vSsmoqL.png

There we go, all healed up.


1288mXU.png

Oh, Maylene! Looks like you survived that blizzard after all!
Thanks for noticing my new badge, I just barely managed to win it!


F2GxaOf.png

fHUhwrU.png

Other Pokemon can learn it too Maylene!
Like Biberal for example.


XENYXK0.png

Well done Ruby.
I may not be adding you to the team, but I firmly believe we wouldn't have beat Candice without you. Enjoy your break in the box!


QYJVLlL.png

Now we need to teach someone Rock Climb.
Anubis is the only one who can learn it, but I really like his current moveset...


Bjc4xO9.png

Heeeyyy Glue. It's been awhile!


u6DI5zS.png

MUnvzWH.png

Much better!


7Re0fXg.png

You know, it's funny.
Snowpoint City has always seemed like an end point to me whenever I play through a Sinnoh game. This is the point in which I usually almost wipe during a nuzlocke and decide to quit, or get stuck at Candice, or there's the more extreme example being of when my save file got corrupted here when I was a kid. That last one was really heartbreaking...
Either way, it feels weird walking away from here without any sort of tragedy having occurred.
But it's a good feeling too. I'm glad to leave with my head held high for once!


o5D4AFb.png

Goodbye Snowpoint, I've got a blonde brat to save...


rZrVIEF.png

Alright Glue, time to do what you were born to do!


EutgKpj.png

To become the greatest HM slave that the world has ever seen!


vrw8Xkd.png

Well done Glue, you did it.


ulrHsVI.png

x4V0nzJ.png

Oh great, it's too late.
See? Should have sent me instead.


BRwcYRt.png

TLdCHSx.png

gLcIMN3.png

Ouch.
I think it would've been kinder to just punch the guy in the face...


dSsSKM3.png

g2f8frL.png

Alright, that's enough! I'm the only one that gets to belittle Barry's dreams!
Back off my coffee addict Jupiter!


F5OxvXK.png

xSvi90p.png

R17hDAx.png

Yeah. I wanted a bike or something? Think I mentioned you guys had a cool aesthetic maybe? Something about a Clefairy?
I honestly don't really remember.


NaTC1KT.png

v0orVZo.png

Impossible.
I'm a Pokemon protagonist.


D7QkRq1.png

1JIVeRO.png

Don't worry about that Jupiter!
I'll save that for the next update!


xn7cNXp.png

Bye Jupiter! I'm gonna destroy you for messing with my hyperactive neighbor!


hujPO7Y.png

*sigh*
Guess I should check on Barry...


9AFhPSX.png

Hey B-man... how are you feeling?


9JRvV4x.png

d8Pshse.png

You know this is probably a bad time to do this... but I told you so.


bnA9zlC.png

tj1sTVA.png

Listen, Barry... it's not your fau-


Gxu7sxD.png

92L6phy.png

tOwg0Tw.png

ng8BtV6.png

cPaYuuG.png

0xUvBfJ.png

I... can't believe it.
I think Barry actually learned something from this.
I'm almost impressed!


xnUnQ7p.png

I think this is where I'm going to leave you all for today.
I kind of want to keep this chapter snow themed due to Christmas, and I think this is a fine point to end off on.
Next week we'll finally storm the Galactic HQ in Veilstone, and in turn finally set things in motion for the climax of the story!
See you all again real soon!

Welcome back to another rousing nuzlocke update!
This one's on the longer side, so get comfy and buckle in!

dyq8zTq.png

Here we are!
Time to see what Galactic's got hiding in this gigantic building right in the middle of Veilstone City!
...
I honestly can't believe that the police haven't raided this place yet.


nYNYebS.png

Then again the police in the Pokemon world are about as useful as a toddler with a taser...
And by that I mean they're only a danger to themselves and a real authority figure should step in.
... I'm referring to me, I'm the authority figure.


wegmMcF.png

KOMX1bk.png

Nice save.


86h4iw0.png

0rMcOww.png

Looks like they're using a cover as some sort of energy company.
Which could be a good disguise if they weren't wearing the uniforms of the people that are bombing everything!


mmwlj4H.png

And you guys have warp panels!
Only true villains install warp panels in their building.


idmnURi.png

fVv3baU.png

OXGO3nl.png

That is a terrible policy, it's way too vague!
You guys need some more solid policies, such as what exactly you're taking and what exactly you're eliminating.
These are the sort of things that should really be explained in detail!


x3Ip1fj.png

mIAPSCF.png

Okay, see! If all of you were to just take off your Galactic uniforms and rename the building to something more unassuming then this whole "energy company" facade could actually work!
But no, most of you guys are just morons.
Leading you guys must be like herding Delcatty...


Wi4kHug.png

I am 24!
I think I'm old enough to join a terrorist organization if I want to!


Oy9oc8Q.png

Well that was a bust.
I guess yelling at a bunch of people about how to run their group better isn't the best way to start a raid...


kgchB4p.png

What about you buddy?
Do you want to hear about how to properly manage a large group of people?


rW8C9Or.png

We've met before?
All of you grunts look exactly the same so you're gonna have to forgive me for not recognizing you.


7UBo4hJ.png

2VywFSK.png

You... had a Clefairy?
Did I fight a grunt with a Clefairy at some point?
I literally looked through my old screenshots and I could not you or your Clefairy my friend.


BEC3IBm.png

Were you one of the grunts that I fought against with Lucas that one time?
I vaguely remember there being a Clefairy in that battle...
But I think that was actually just Lucas' Clefairy.


U7dO6Ab.png

DxsUfoA.png

Hey, you get back here right now you little gremlin!


yA3cPXN.png

jxRP2Ug.png

Looker, partner! Long time no see.
So, uh... how did that bomb case go?


8CG265Z.png

You know what, I'm fine with not bringing up the bomb thing!
So what was that about a key?


kcu33ae.png

BaYw59d.png

Definitely.
They messed with the wrong girl's coffee addict!
... And I guess I should rescue the lake guardians too...


7HvRzag.png

cG0sdmL.png

okIke2l.png

You got it Looker! I'll meet you there!


YXVTGg3.png

Wait a minute...


MOHoUgN.png

Stella's still on the team! I forgot to take her off!
She is way too under-leveled to go in there with us!


l6IzpQU.png

Sorry ol' girl, thanks for flying us over here. It was nice to have you back with us for a little while.
Now let's get over to the warehouse!


F9QDQNp.png

Here we are.
Looks like we managed to get here before Looker.
Guess I'll just go investigate the door...


xUi4IgD.png

Gah!
You can't just sneak up on people like that man!

That sounds more like a Team Plasma thing...


9Vh0trE.png

There we go, that sounds more like a Galactic thing!


VtofhCw.png

Oh, guess he's not a trainer...


msplFHB.png

I think that might be the Dubious Disk over there.
I really want to grab it so I'll be able to finally have a fully evolved team!


sfOePSI.png

For now though we've gotta make our way through the maze of the Galactic HQ!


VhnTNTn.png

No I'm meant to be here.
You should just let me pass.


sA3g0o6.png

Or I could have Anubis destroy your bat, whatever works!


T7Ky7hN.png

I could set you on actual fire if that'll make you feel any better!


8H9Ix6g.png

There are going to be so many annoying grunts in here, I can already feel it...


PoKeaB5.png

Ja7pfNN.png

7qnrSvi.png

Hey! Don't you dare compare me to Charon!
I am not half as forgettable as him!


Ji9TjZs.png

m3h5kBU.png

deRaa1R.png

You get what you deserve!


lVUnxkf.png

Finally!
Let's get out of this dark and dingy basement.


FlNIdH0.png

Then congratulations! You don't exist to me.
Be grateful.


E72pihy.png

vgcmPyk.png

Don't feel too bad about the warp panels dude, I don't know how they work either.


Y3vOk5s.png

Your HQ?
No no no, you've got this all wrong. This is a hostile takeover, you're desecrating my HQ.


1OQfgHr.png

Pathetic.
At least Dandy's finally getting some experience though!
Poor guy wasn't seeing much combat while we were up north...


vykVW6l.png

Ah, my old nemesis. Warp panels.
To save all of you kind viewers some pain, I'm gonna cut ahead a little bit!
...
...
...


FKhYeuJ.png

That was annoying, but I think I found the way forward!
I'll fill you in on what you missed though.


9bEcDHf.png

Turns out that wasn't the Dubious Disk in the basement, it was here, guarded by this scientist!


CYmE7Fv.png

I also picked up Sludge Bomb, which is amazing.


25X6HFV.png

And that item I thought was the Dubious Disk was actually the key I needed!


OgnSHWc.png

That brings us back to here.
Time to open up the door!


AIboOhS.png

Qrr1G7E.png

GPnvTJY.png

Voila!


SaYBMw4.png

pQEIon2.png

rFxHWOh.png

...
Yeah that about sums up what I'm feeling right now.
Guess I needed to use this key on the front door!


J0nRyum.png

Let's back it up boys!
...
...
...


IpVPVUW.png

Honey I'm home!


G4ET3dN.png

hOniAhv.png

MunH09e.png

So, no one's gonna stop me?
No one at all?


8NfFpDB.png

Alright then, thanks for being cool with this guys!


EexuPQB.png

QdSvdP0.png

As cool as "going out in a blaze of glory" sounds, it would actually be humiliating for me to lose to a grunt.
So I'm not going to.


nABaoVK.png

SjPrUEF.png

gS3on26.png

Thanks for the level ups though!


gP0ZqQc.png

It's cute that you think I get tired of screwing up your plans!


8BJpsO9.png

It's also adorable that you thought a Golbat could stop Beau!
It's actually been nice to get to use Beau again since he's sort of been relegated to the back seat for the past couple of chapters.


VYAPHhG.png

The only thing I've "disturbed" for you personally is your TV time good sir.
This feels like a bit of an overreaction if you ask me...


urWVdCb.png

Oh, you have a Porygon2 as well? It's nice to see a man of culture around here!
Too bad Dandy will have to destroy you.


N2tYNTa.png

... In hindsight, telling Dandy to use Petal Dance may not have been a very good idea.


HdDDrLM.png

tD7eMBw.png

Never mind!
He out-sped and took the beast down in two hits! Excellent work Dandy!


KBzP1zz.png

Wonder where this is gonna take me...


vfTXLAk.png

...
I don't want to be here yet.


FMWn3pP.png

I still have more stuff to explore, such as this book!
Looks like we might be able to play "guess that blank space" after all!


7EeE5sJ.png

Hell yeah I do!


OP4u4bR.png

FskTKZi.png

5jW82ze.png

OiTBKav.png

CbQsDTn.png

... They've already translated it.
You can't keep making me look like a fool Cyrus!


RjyPcB3.png

Don't tell me they did it for Palkia's plate too!


TkzaFdI.png

Fvrhhgk.png

fLfNSmw.png

iKviAPf.png

8tYFgKV.png

Damn you Cyrus!!!


zt8o4RH.png

He never lets me have any fun...


wrZVXuV.png

At least we still have these warp panels!
Maybe there'll be something interesting beyond these!
...
...
...


7RrxTgI.png

I was wrong we're moving on.


UD846e2.png

Hey there Looker, did I miss anything?
Should I go get popcorn?


vsyJvkf.png

Iy3KLIu.png

ZaZiUZH.png

Clearly it's some sort of rally Looker.
See? This is why I'm gunning for your job. I would clearly make a better detective than you!


ONUWZ8n.png

s3Ic3RL.png

3J8xqmw.png

There he is. The big blue man himself.


CwSDZsO.png

EMPRBzs.png

Yeah struggling to survive can be a problem, but it's also part of what gives out lives meaning!
If we just had everything handed to us on a silver plate then I think life would get pretty boring pretty fast...
That's not to say that there shouldn't be any comfort though! Just that there should be a balance.


XDKOR7o.png

TWR8nFN.png

VgNUKy3.png

7vgqe0i.png

It kinda sounds like you're projecting here a little bit pal.


GnTsUcL.png

OdFtijW.png

Me?


pFIm0FB.png

I was sort of right I guess...


uboGJMN.png

48Ek1Sv.png

D6fENa7.png

0fzSnBW.png

vNnFKf4.png

zChM9Sv.png

Sorry to burst your bubble here Cyrus, but the dream world was shut down in 2014...
It honestly still hurts a bit.


WF5B13Q.png

FwZCroa.png

hnHtK4z.png

G4G1xvk.png

Well I'll give him this, he sure does know how to give speeches.


JSwQuVA.png

We're gonna have to disagree there random grunt!


Ffy6Q0m.png

RXjeXvD.png

I cannot believe that no one saw us.
Some grunts must have come this way!


3Y6PF21.png

Oh yeah, me and big blue go way back.
I've been listening to his monologues for ages now!


pKCnUUN.png

Wait... Cyrus is only 27!?
He's only three years older than me!?
How has he accomplished all of this!?
I haven't even graduated college yet!


Qwrm0mF.png

u0kBxAS.png

My head is spinning for an entirely different reason right now Looker...


JYQPQvw.png

p1NprtX.png

eT2tHLy.png

NRaloN4.png

p8IPi5f.png

nrTL2FZ.png

m4UCDqx.png

Funny that he thinks I wasn't going to follow him.


1uhlO8s.png

See, every member of Team Galactic is actually a preschooler.
They need nap time or they'll throw a tantrum.


Ap2reKN.png

... Why does this need to be spelled out?


OtX4iiz.png

Oh well, there's clearly no one in the bed so-


wIpk6uU.png

...
I'm not sure I like what this is implying.


YChsah4.png

I'm going to choose to ignore that since I need to heal!


bIWiOdo.png

I'm not sure how safe this is to be honest...
How can anyone fall asleep while they're raiding a terrorist organizations base!?


XDfsxXt.png

Whatever, it's over now.
I absolutely don't want to do a double battle, so I'll be splitting you two up!


dX7K3Si.png

4rpd3zc.png

Easy!


Yx33Io5.png

More warp tiles!?
Alright, let me deal with these and I'll be right back...
...
...
...


uCHcJYg.png

Considering the decor I think I'm in the right place.


gS3w3r3.png

Here we are.
Last time I fought Cyrus he was basically a pushover, but not this time.
He's gonna be a lot stronger in this fight, and I need to be careful.


jXRB06y.png

clxnf5A.png

tsdja2b.png

Come on, deep breaths, I got this.


ktVMlaU.png

Yeah, and I'll admit - you sure do know how to talk pretty.


oz82zXY.png

Is that... actual emotion that I'm sensing from you?
I didn't know you could express emotion Cyrus!


oDhMkNj.png

j9b3UkK.png

rmMDiXq.png

Oh I get it, you're actually just a major introvert!
Listen dude, I get it. You don't have to go and create a whole new world just to get away from everyone though!
Just do what the rest of us do, find a corner you like and stay there... forever.


IxS1cvt.png

Are you implying that you're the only perfect person in existence?
Or that you're even perfect in the first place?
Buddy, I've got some bad news for you...


lAXG5Qz.png

4LVeybz.png

Are we actually agreeing on something for once?


OF7AeXe.png

w8aWH83.png

Well actually I'm here to avenge Barry's honor.
But Jupiter's not here, so I guess I'll settle on freeing the Pokemon.


10vk1ZP.png

wUqwsKI.png

VPg6bs9.png

So, you're just gonna let me go?


U9AITMO.png

Thank you?
I don't know if i should accept that as a compliment or not...


nVH422M.png

GDpbDwD.png

I mean... I guess?
It's one thing to catch a Pokemon in a Poke Ball and have it fight for you, but it's something entirely different to throw them in a cage and torture them!


uNWle0t.png

MIpKP7D.png

EODAQ00.png

xcwT0pw.png

... Who hurt you?


rdcRzRA.png

Oh, I guess it's battle time.


kDtVAKk.png

1S6p2Sq.png

jYSvtQd.png

2otM4UK.png

I'll be honest, I thought he was gonna send Crobat out first.
But I'll take the Intimidate drop!


7xB6X8F.png

Alright Anubis, time to shine!


A2JkjhY.png

x0cBWtS.png

What a terrible way to make an entrance Anubis!


5lxQJjZ.png

Can you please just take this thing down in one hit?


EXaSi03.png

Why are Sneasel so fast!?


zh2h7wm.png

At least it wasn't another crit...


5Ij9D5x.png

zbeeX17.png

5qHWhcI.png

It's dead, finally.


T6JRVrH.png

Time to back out Anubis!


F3nPejH.png

And it's time to bring our boy Beau back in!


YLZTCWi.png

I hope Beau has a decent physical defense...


6H5hpFf.png

Phew.


sVdc2nL.png

Show this thing what real pain looks like buddy!


BPuWarl.png

Peuk2fS.png

Stop doing that!


2y5Txy9.png

Stop doing that too!


1XPiSWB.png

One more Thunder Fang should kill it...


LiBiC2E.png

hFCcaBh.png

ClfiRMC.png

Excellent job Beau!


MANzwZ1.png

So it seems.
Such a shame that he doesn't stand a chance!


wegTPKr.png

xBI4bOu.png

Cheater!


a6UdB29.png

Good thing Beau is a good boy that never hits himself in confusion!


621gIpA.png

YoX1555.png

One more hit and you're done!
Give it up Cyrus!


XSgSbnS.png

...
That's my strategy. You can't just steal someone's strategy like that!


xByy59n.png

Come on pal...


JRIsDTV.png

Atta boy!
Though this won't do as much, but I wasn't anticipating a Full Restore there!
