But why electrode tho
Still nice work!

Because they're the two rarest types, they're the rarest pokemon. Yes, that's logical. No, there aren't other Ghost/Ice types. Froslass doesn't exist.

Ah, so like Unova then.
So at first I thought you were being sarcastic, because in B/W gym leaders only have a maximum of four pokemon. But then I remembered you played Blaze Black.

Woo, deathless first gym battle! Honestly, I was scared when that Electrode came out. Like, I get that it fits the theme of the gym, but they're really throwing an illegal fully evolved Pokemon at you in the first gym fight?

Doesn't understand sarcasm yet is quite good dishing it out, he always laughs at inappropriate times,
Beau.
And Scout, but Pika will never admit it.
okay, any humans ever get an A? or at least a B+?
As of right now? I'd give her a nice solid B- entirely because she betrayed her friend to give me an advantage in our battle.
This grade may or may not lower due to future circumstances though.
...She kills someone doesn't she?
The first time it's intimidating, the second time it's somewhat endearing, but by the third time rolls around you're just annoyed.
well… until the third groups team leader (kinda) kills a gym leader right in front of you, then it might switch right back to intimidating.
5ay41EM.png
My death was... greatly exaggerated.
just a heads up, when you watch this on dark mode the text is white, which makes it a little hard to read with that background color you chose...

Also is decibel a guy here?

Also also was that just fucking Megamind you quoted there?

Well, luckily for me I've got an electric-proof fish!

It's a wonder none of your reborn pokemon have abandoned you yet.

Why did they give the boom-happy lady a Gym Leader position anyway?

7YKiXcJ.png
I'm sure there must have been others that were more qualified...
HAHAHAHAHA... you actually made me think about this and I think there's only one other guy in reborn that uses electric types fully, and he's a little to zap happy with his patients.

If you can maintain this same level of skill that I saw today I would gift you a rarity for every fourth Gym Badge collected - meaning four very special gifts in total!
ah so... he/she's the one giving you shiny pokemon. ngl I thought you were gonna give them some involvement in the main story,

The most humble and modest braggart you will ever meet.
Derogatory Trainer said:
Well that's a far better thing than what I suggested.
I don't think there's anyway to make Healing strats good when you cans till use items anyway.
Screen Setter/Toxic Spammer is a far better build.

I am forever grateful that the Chikorita line is so bulky.
Even if he's up against a type he's weak too - there's still a pretty decent chance he can tank a single hit to set up even one screen.
It's a real shame this game doesn't have Crests like Rejuvenation.
Meganium gets even more bulk added there.

If held by a Meganium this item reduces the damage taken by Meganium and any double battle ally by 20%. It also recovers 1/16 of both Pokémon's maximum HP at the end of each turn (as if both Pokémon were holding Leftovers).
Like damn. It would be so good.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I haven't either but it's more because my name can't get any shorter and not sound dumb.

Hmm... how about "Sea" (pronounced like "shaw") or "Ean" (pronounced like "on")? "S-Man?" "Big S?"
... "Seen?"
...
Like I said "NOT sound dumb"
You usually have to add something to it like my Dad used to call me Sean the Bán (meaning Sean the White which was an odd choice but it rhymes I guess)
Ugh, I remember that Shauna girl from X and Y calling me Big S and I've never forgiven her for it.
Can't help but think she was calling me a Big Shit.


Derogatory Trainer said:
Because they are broken and downright unfair at times. Especially the ones you can't get rid of with a move.
But then again, the Leaders in this game aren't nearly as good without them so there's less of a challenge if you do.

Very true.
God does it feel good to use their fields against them though; there's a Gym battle that comes up later where I just completely spit in their face and it was so much fun.
God, I hope it's Radomus.


Derogatory Trainer said:
Ah.
Reshiram has obviously given himself a human for the specific purpose of becoming Pika's love interest.
That makes complete sense to me.


Holy shit
- that is a horrifying image that you just projected into my mind.
I'm pretty sure if he ever tried that Pika would just drop-kick him.
That white haired goon died, Reshiram possessed him and is now trying to buy your affection with gifts!
It is my headcanon now and you cannot stop me.

I mean it was ONLY two years ago for them. So she's not THAT much of an embarrassment.
Wonder what they even have cheerleaders for anyway?
Do they actually have non-Pokemon school sports in this region?
And even then...who the fuck would they be playing against in this isolated region? They're the ONLY school.


Flute putting in the work!
Motivation is one hell of a drug.



Goddamn that really is a game changer in this fight.
I wish my one had that.

Ooh. That's interesting.
What kind of special gifts we talking here? Hold items? Pokemon? Evolution Items? Crests?
Either way, Reshiram is definitely putting in the work buttering you up.


Great work though. Nobody dead in the first gym even with the high chance of being exploded!
And with the next three leaders being Grass, Poison and Bug I think you might actually get a Starter to it's final evolution in one of your Nuzlockes!

Hm... are you talking about something for the Solaris volcano fight or is it something to help with a different boss fight?
Yes. Because the only way to win this fight requires at least 1 pokemon. And i have yet to see you catch this pokemon.

Hisssssss...
Now don't scare dusty or i will have to use it again.

Same - I've played this game dozens of times and the info's so readily available I don't think there's an issue with keeping info on the Field Effects on hand.
It doesn't hurt to know what seed should be given to a Pokemon or what moves to avoid.
yeah but it also can give quite a big fear... like i looked over what is probably the champions field effect... and im actually scared.

I mean, this dude is rude, but he's right about the Reborn League being terrifying. ._.

When there is no Gym Guy:


At least you're a player who's survived Drayano. People who just try Reborn as their first Pokemon fangame experience... hopefully aren't nuzlocking it.

See, as wild as raiding that Rocket Hideout in Johto with Lance is, at least it's framed as a melancholic thing to be causing the Electrode to blow up! You know, that it's evil for Team Rocket to be using Pokemon as a power source. (Although Amphy exists. Although I guess Amphy isn't a "power source" so much as a "safety measure.")

I assume that Reborn is following the somewhat-of-a-tradition of having electric type trainers named after musicians? (i.e: the Musician Guitarist trainer class, which often uses electric type Pokemon)

Messing with the AI time? 👀

It's a bad sign for a school's honor is tied to a pyromaniac.... >_>

Admittedly, I like the theming that allows for Plusle and Minun to be used. I used a Minun in a lorelocke, who I loved. ❤️ ⚡

I hate that one of the gimmicks in Gym 1 in this game is Sonic Boom. It just seems to reward heal-stalling more than actual strategy.

At least Reborn doesn't have locked move slots in the form of HMs.

StgjoU4.png
Just you darling, your battle was spectacular! It's been quite some time since I saw a trainer with such skill!

Ugh... I hate being sick. Well, at least I'm finally doing better now and was able to get this chapter out after a... considerable length of time. Catching that cold (and getting my toe smashed) really slowed down progress dammit!
Oh well,
take a longer chapter as compensation!

Also I'd like to thank @Moon @Kit_The_Feef @pinkshellos @bhelryss and @QuietGuardian for the promos!
You guys are great and I love you :glomp:

I also recently found out the final update for Pokemon Reborn is in motion, and... I have some thoughts.
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO ADD AN ENTIRELY NEW CHARACTER AMETHYST!? WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO HURT ME THIS WAY!?!?!
That being said, the new character's got a neat design and I'm happy the early game areas or getting a fresh coat of paint - but...
Why in the world couldn't this have come out BEFORE I started this run :cybercrime:


@redninjapuffle
huh. Kinda expected that go a bit worse, but I guess reborn isn't totally oppressive in the first gym
I should tell you that the first time I played Reborn many years ago (not a nuzlocke) Julia nearly made me quit.
So she is terrifying - I'm just very used to her bullshit at this point.


But why electrode tho
Because of the booms man; because of the booms 😔


Still nice work!
Thank you! I legitimately thought someone was going to die here.


@Moon
Oh, yes. Definately.
Glad I'm not alone on this.
Now if they made me sweat like certain fangames did, maybe I'd stop insulting them :argh:


This made me laugh
Glad it made you giggle 😉


clyde.
At least in gen 5.
Ah, thank you.
I love my precious Gym Guy to death, but he has the most forgettable name in the world.


So at first I thought you were being sarcastic, because in B/W gym leaders only have a maximum of four pokemon. But then I remembered you played Blaze Black.
No, no sarcasm this time around; just pain.
Endless pain 😥


This is an amazing line
Good ol' Scout; restraining Pika's murderous tendencies even when he's not here.
The next part sure would have been easier if we did have a machete though...


@Electro
Limiting Mill's food does not conform to the Greatest Happiness Principle
Listen, he needs to go on a diet.
At this point I'm going to have to start rolling him into battle...


I'm kinda beating this joke into the ground. Could you name a Pokemon Kant so I could start cracking jokes on the Categorical Imperative?
Tell you what, I'll name the next Pokemon I catch Kant - just for you.
That being said I'm currently a decent ways into the game and there's no guaranteeing I'll use whoever I name Kant, but I will still do this thing for you my friend :3:


If by "family", you mean "readers on the forums", then yes, this is fun for the whole family.
Of course I mean you guys!
You're all my long distance internet family!

This is Reborn; believe me when I say this is the least bullshit thing that's going to be thrown at us.

N because Pika's entirely biased, and Bianca because unlike most of the other rivals Pika has had Bianca was the only one to not kill a 'mon.
And also Bianca is a sweetheart.


...She kills someone doesn't she?
🙂


well… until the third groups team leader (kinda) kills a gym leader right in front of you, then it might switch right back to intimidating.
Oh yeah, Team Meteor is probably the most intimidating evil team that Pika has faced so far.
She just doesn't realize it yet.


just a heads up, when you watch this on dark mode the text is white, which makes it a little hard to read with that background color you chose...
Already fixed - thanks for letting me know!


Also is decibel a guy here?
Yeah, I'm basically just borrowing Decibel's sprite.
Kind of similar to how Pika isn't Alice, nor was she Dawn or Hilda.


Also also was that just fucking Megamind you quoted there?
... Maybe.
It's a really good movie alright!?


It's a wonder none of your reborn pokemon have abandoned you yet.
Various reasons.
Basil's just happy to have a trainer, Dusty believes in the good of others (she's also really naive), Mill has a constant food supply, Flute's getting to see the city and wouldn't know how to survive on her own, and Triton and Diamond have their own reasons that haven't been covered just yet.


HAHAHAHAHA... you actually made me think about this and I think there's only one other guy in reborn that uses electric types fully, and he's a little to zap happy with his patients.
Yeah... when you put it like that it really seems like Julia is the better choice here.


OGC.a2e5c6e3ee56006138594cc13e00da1e


R.I.P Pika's wallet.
It made the noblest of sacrifices 😔


ah so... he/she's the one giving you shiny pokemon. ngl I thought you were gonna give them some involvement in the main story,
We'll likely being seeing more from our mysterious benefactor - don't you worry about that 😉


@Derogatory Trainer
It's a real shame this game doesn't have Crests like Rejuvenation.
Meganium gets even more bulk added there.
:smashpc:
BASIL COULD HAVE BEEN SO GOOD!!!


...
Like I said "NOT sound dumb"
Aw, c'mon Big S - they're not that dumb!


You usually have to add something to it like my Dad used to call me Sean the Bán (meaning Sean the White which was an odd choice but it rhymes I guess)
Ah, I think that's a parental thing.
Growing up my nickname was "Katie" but my mom always called me "Katie-Bug" so I think parents just always have to make nicknames longer than they need to be.


Ugh, I remember that Shauna girl from X and Y calling me Big S and I've never forgiven her for it.
Can't help but think she was calling me a Big Shit.
You know I kind of liked the nickname mechanic from X/Y, it was a cute little addition.
Probably would have been better utilized if they hadn't been people that you literally just met though...


God, I hope it's Radomus.
Ah, unfortunately I'm not quite there yet.
And I have a bad feeling me and Mr. Hat aren't going to have a fun time together when I do get there 😣


That white haired goon died, Reshiram possessed him and is now trying to buy your affection with gifts!
It is my headcanon now and you cannot stop me.
Hmm... well nobody's seen Ash and our new friend in the same room together 🤔


Which means I must have survived too, yes?
I was just blown upwards onto the back of a migrating flock of Fearow and carried off to Orre or something.
Who knows!
Maybe the explosion knocked you into the water and you were adopted by a loving Lapras family.


It's a shame you can't give Mill the Gluttony Ability.
It wouldn't be much use but it'd be real appropriate.
It certainly would have been more thematic!
There's not a chance I'd be willing to let him have that ability, but damn would it make sense.

*heavy breathing*

KpsGF1i.png
Hello Pika...
SEE!? This is why he's going on a diet!


I mean it was ONLY two years ago for them. So she's not THAT much of an embarrassment.
No! That's two years too many! It's time to move on Julia - we can't hang onto the past forever!


Wonder what they even have cheerleaders for anyway?
Do they actually have non-Pokemon school sports in this region?
And even then...who the fuck would they be playing against in this isolated region? They're the ONLY school.
Maybe they travel? Rejuvenation technically takes place in the same world as Reborn right? So maybe they face of against each other?
Or, they just form two teams within the school! An inter-school rivalry seems about right for this region.


Flute putting in the work!
Motivation is one hell of a drug.
She really is!
Maybe I should start using positive rewards to encourage better results in battle 🤔


Goddamn that really is a game changer in this fight.
I wish my one had that.
I LOVE abilities that completely nullify an entire type - especially when that Pokemon is typically weak said type.
But don't you put Flounder down like that! Either *quickly Googles Seaking's abilities* Swift Swim or Water Veil can be good as well!
... Sometimes.


He probably should have given you money.
Probably would have one him a lot of brownie points.
I'm gonna be honest; with the amount of money I start making eventually - I will happily take the shinies.


Ooh. That's interesting.
What kind of special gifts we talking here? Hold items? Pokemon? Evolution Items? Crests?
Either way, Reshiram is definitely putting in the work buttering you up.
I don't think it's spoilery to say that this is where the "Bernag Clause" comes in.
Essentially I get a shiny for every fourth Gym Leader defeated.


Great work though. Nobody dead in the first gym even with the high chance of being exploded!
I was actually terrified of swapping Triton out at the end there.
He was immune to explosions; Flute less so.


And with the next three leaders being Grass, Poison and Bug I think you might actually get a Starter to it's final evolution in one of your Nuzlockes!
I mean... two out of three of those types are super effective against Basil.
We should never underestimate my ability to lose a starter; my previous two were both lost to Gym Leaders in which they should have been good against.


@bhelryss
man, oh boy did my heart ever stop at the electrode coming out. super surprised and grateful nothing exploded!!!
It was certainly a close call.
Triton was thankfully immune thanks to the field effect making explosive moves gain the electric-typing, but Flute would have been dead meat if that thing had gone off 😰


also ooh man, the lack of healing items....im glad basil is on the case, because being forgetful about it in reborn sounds like.......a rough idea
Yeah, I was really beating myself up over forgetting to buy healing items before the fight.
Luckily Basil has it handled! (At the expense of my poor wallet...)


@CrumpetsAndCheese
so pika has a sugar daddy now, cool.
But of course.
All proper Champions should have a sugar daddy 🧐


(also kinda peeved that nobody died so i didnt get to make a funny i thought of)
... Can I still hear the funny though?


@Bernag
Yes. Because the only way to win this fight requires at least 1 pokemon. And i have yet to see you catch this pokemon.
Nah, don't you worry about a thing.
I've got everything I need to take care of it.


Now don't scare dusty or i will have to use it again.
Woah now buddy - let's not get crazy here!


yeah but it also can give quite a big fear... like i looked over what is probably the champions field effect... and im actually scared.
Oh, definitely.
I am legitimately terrified of some upcoming fights entirely because of the damn fields.


So it begins...
The prodigal son has arrived...


There there. Gym guy is now using this time to be with his kids so be happy for him.
But he should be with ME 😭


*Unova flashbacks with lots of gun noises for some reason*
It was a traumatic time for me.
I still wake in the dead of the night sometimes screaming from the memories :cybercrime:


You will be fineeeeeeeeeeeeee.
I mean... I was.
But the fear was still real dammit!


Yeah in your universe this idea is kinda mortifying since its actual death. Not just fainting.
I'm just choosing to believe that all those Voltorb were just... fakes. They were all just machines that Julia found lying around!


If anything happens to that Minccino i will have to upgrade the squirt bottle to a pepper spray.
If anything happens to Dusty go for it.
If I lose her I deserve the pain 😔


The correct mentality for the first gym. Don't get super worried but also be cautious. Don't understimate it.
Oh definitely.
Julia can be intimidating if you're not ready for her, bus she's certainly not the worst Gym Leader of the bunch.


...BUT THEY ARE SO RARE.... *cries in unknowing if it was a good idea or not*
It's fine! There'll be more.
I was being cautious because I didn't want to lose a 'mon to the first Gym.


NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU NOT THE "T" WORD... imma gonna miss "Terribadtastic"
It's a tough loss to be sure, but a promise is a promise.
Flute more than earned the right to never hear "terribadtastic" ever again 😟


don't tell me... oh god...
😔


Your are the best pokemon for this gym. And this is a incredible surprise for first timers. But lightningrod for this gym ? it makes some of the worried gone just like that.
Oh absolutely - Lightningrod is OP here.
The electric-type immunity along with getting a special attack boost is just fantastic.


oh no... *panik panik panik panik*
Don't worry, everything worked out in the end!


*Raises the squirt gun*
You better...
Please, mercy...


Ah the pain of hms gone... Now if only they were actually decent moves like in volt white. I miss you steel type/Grass type Cut and Rock type Strenght.
I won't!
The boosted HM moves in Drayano hacks were a nice convenience feature for games where HMs were mandatory, but I'd much rather be allowed to replace them at will!


Better the wallet than you and the team crying.
*sigh*
I guess...



Ehhhh.... kinda spoilery but we all know what those vines are and imagine it would be like cutting a limb from the thing... i rather not have you do that.
But the problem would be solved so much faster!


Like you need any XD. But i can't wait to see what these rarities are :3:
As am I - things are about to get much "shinier" 😉


@Bowser's Family Vacation
No need to fear the reaper—he's on vacation in Alola. :3
Oh, that is a super fun concept for a run!


Oh my gosh, it's a Reborn character getting portrait art! sir swag jockey is in jelly school
Well, maybe if Fern stopped being a brat and gave me gifts instead he could get some portraits as well 😒


I mean, this dude is rude, but he's right about the Reborn League being terrifying. ._.
Him being right doesn't excuse the dickishness though!
He is reaching dangerous levels of smugness!


When there is no Gym Guy:
I... I miss him so much 😟


At least you're a player who's survived Drayano. People who just try Reborn as their first Pokemon fangame experience... hopefully aren't nuzlocking it.
I pray for the fearless ones that charge into Reborn with a death wish - I am not quite so brave.


You know things are dire when your counter for the electric type gym is a Goldeen. 😰
5d452ad078638b921e9f0944183cef89254c58f3r1-340-258_hq.gif
He's not like your average fish - he's immune to electricity!


If Julia wants to lose her face to one of the various explosions that she leaves in her wake that's fine, but I would like to keep my money-maker 😠


See, as wild as raiding that Rocket Hideout in Johto with Lance is, at least it's framed as a melancholic thing to be causing the Electrode to blow up! You know, that it's evil for Team Rocket to be using Pokemon as a power source.
I always felt so bad for those Electrode as a kid; I remember going out of my way to try and catch as many as I could.
I just wanted them to have a better life 😟


(Although Amphy exists. Although I guess Amphy isn't a "power source" so much as a "safety measure.")
Amphy is... an enigma.
As far as I'm concerned that Ampharos actually likes working at the lighthouse; and honestly? Who am I to take that away.


I assume that Reborn is following the somewhat-of-a-tradition of having electric type trainers named after musicians? (i.e: the Musician Guitarist trainer class, which often uses electric type Pokemon)
Oh! You know I never actually noticed that naming theme before.
I'm with you on that though, I think Reborn likes to try and stick to some themes from the main games - I guess this is one of them!


NO!
I won't lose Dusty; I've done three previous nuzlockes of Reborn and I've lost a Mincinno in two of them - I won't lose another :argh:


Messing with the AI time? 👀
Uhh... I'm not actually sure if I ever even ended up using Encore - I think it was just something I figured wouldn't hurt to have around.


It's a bad sign for a school's honor is tied to a pyromaniac.... >_>
Considering that this is Reborn... it's probably not the most shocking thing that's ever happened in this region...


Admittedly, I like the theming that allows for Plusle and Minun to be used. I used a Minun in a lorelocke, who I loved. ❤️ ⚡
Same here! I used a Minun in an Emerald run once and the little guy stole my heart 🥺


A counter for bug types in an electric gym!? It's like Reborn is reading your mind. 0-0
It's incredibly easy to sweep this Gym with just the free Kricketune that almost everyone will pick up, so I guess it makes sense to have something to counter it.
Even if it's annoying 😒


We've all been here. 😭
This is Reborn though - those kind of mistakes here can get you a wipe!
Things could have gone very bad if I didn't have Triton...


Wow, double crits from Flute! Hear her legend!
7a34f4d3450fee5afdce7bc67186d9ee66557678_00.gif
All hail the crit queen! Long may she reign!


I hate that one of the gimmicks in Gym 1 in this game is Sonic Boom. It just seems to reward heal-stalling more than actual strategy.
Sonic Boom combined with explosions and all electric-type moves getting a boost makes this Gym terrifying if you don't have a solid counter.
Thank god for Triton!


At least Reborn doesn't have locked move slots in the form of HMs.
It's genuinely a blessing - it's super easy to just swap between an HM and a TM on a handful of specific Pokemon.


Pika also hates that archetype. As she should. 😤
It's just too suspicious - who just suddenly switches sides like that!?


That being said, what kind of rarity??? 👀
I don't think it's a spoiler to say this is how I'm intigrating the "Bernag Clause" meaning I'll be getting a shiny for every fourth Gym Badge I collect!

O-okay...

RYHssmb.png
Also apparently all the trainers on the stairs near the Grand Hall can, and will be respawning.

Awful for them and mildly annoying for me - they really should have just taken their beating and dealt with it.

RYHssmb.png
Did a tree grow in an inconvenient place and block the road, are there weeds overgrowing in someone's garden?

isyzekG.png
I highly doubt they're closing an entire part of the city just because of some slight overgrowth. There's surely something bigger at play...

o6VVsYM.png
Or! People are just overreacting; it happens all the time.

Hm. It... doesn't look that bad.

o6VVsYM.png
See? I told you guys that it wasn't that bad!

D5Ldpge.png
I still have an awful feeling about all this.

RYHssmb.png
You're overreacting.

Look, there's a kid up there - let's go see how he feels about all this "destruction."

Oh c'mon kiddo, everything's fine!

H6Uk6yG.png
Um... Pika?

RYHssmb.png
What? Can't you see I'm in the middle of something?

H6Uk6yG.png
Is that a vine?

Huh?


5aLQB4qm.png

RYHssmb.png
Hmm... well I guess there is some sort of weird plant stuff going on, but-

WFAe16k.png
Oh dear Arceus save us all...

RYHssmb.png
What the hell-

-are... you... talking about. Oh shit.


Hhuih23m.png

iO2sE3u.png
"Not that bad" huh?

EBayWxt.png
Give me the benefit of the doubt here - it didn't look that bad at first glance!

That's a big hole; you think someone would survive if they fell in?

Erm...

fq0aTuZ.png
Let's... try not to think to hard about that.



6AQDEFBm.png

RYHssmb.png
Hmm... looks like this used to be a main street of sorts. Looks like a salon and... a Pokeball store? Does it sell specialty balls or something?

o6VVsYM.png
Definitely something to check out later.

Devon Corp has a branch here? Interesting.

Hm? What's this building?

iO2sE3u.png
Do you always go into random buildings?

o6VVsYM.png
Yes? That's how I got most of you.

iO2sE3u.png
...

SNsTZgj.png
I hate to say it, but you have a point.


LlqvoGb.png
I will take that as approval for my breaking and entering!

QebSf7A.png
No.


CNFXZTlm.png

oYGOdUH.png
Oh! It looks like we found the Daycare!

o6VVsYM.png
I don't like utilizing their services since it can screw up a good 'mon's moveset, but sometimes they give away free eggs!

LlqvoGb.png
And I love free eggs.

Eum1Xm4m.png

RYHssmb.png
Not a chance in hell I'm doing that - I'm perfectly capable of training up my team on my own thank you very much.

But I will take any eggs you're trying to get rid of!

tQnLYrOm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Hey, old man - your wife is being weird.

A free egg will do!

7YKiXcJ.png
Something seems... fishy.

isyzekG.png
For once I agree. There shouldn't be a reason the Day Care owners would turn someone away.

iO2sE3u.png
Maybe they know our trainer is insane and is refusing to do business with her because of it?

SNsTZgj.png
I mean she did pretty much barge in here and ask them to hand over a child.


isyzekG.png
You have a point, but Day Cares DO give out unwanted eggs to trainers on occasion.

RYHssmb.png
AND I haven't caused enough mayhem (yet) in this city for them to be afraid of me.

o6VVsYM.png
That will come in due time, it always does.

H6Uk6yG.png
So what do you want to do then?

ljDSxLz.png
We could just... leave?

No.

I say just take it easy and enjoy the ride.

Don't listen to him Dusty - if you want to fight you can fight!

Right Pika?


RYHssmb.png
Yeah, I would have swapped you back in here if it wasn't such a risky fight; you're just kind of fragile.

You'll get your chance someday though, I'm sure of it.

aPkTkKF.png
Oh yay, new friends!


QI8i1oPm.png

RYHssmb.png
Hmm...


cglEIjwm.png

LlqvoGb.png
Done!

o6VVsYM.png
That was easy.


HRBISGPm.png

5J7hA1om.png

vng5JbOm.png

LlqvoGb.png
Sweet, another fairy-type!

RYHssmb.png
Too bad Swirlix sucks until it evolves and gets some levels.


WpkUWvom.png

Okay, I'm trying a new format for explaining the nicknames for my Pokemon; since it feels a little out of character for in-game Pika to do it since she's sort of been established as a separate person from real-life Pika - aka me the author.
Let me know if you like the new format or if you want me to go back to how it used to be!

So I was some brainstorming some candy-based names for our little ball of cotton candy, and it hit me. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Reese is actually a real name, and it has a candy connotation.
... Also I was actively eating peanut butter cups when I got him - so I may have been biased.



562QrNxm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Alright, I think we got all we're going to from this place.

RYHssmb.png
For now at least...

c0UB6g0.png
So let's get out of here before Mill starts gnawing on the children.

b2vOh3A.png
NO! I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO TASTE THE LICORICE SECTION YET!!!

EBayWxt.png
Let's go you damn food vacuum.

bgHC8Em.png
YOU'RE STARVING ME!!!


VbwnWTIm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Let's keep moving I suppose!

WJXgN25.png
Mill really burned through our savings...

LlqvoGb.png
It'll be fine!

Ai8UHMS.png
I sure hope so...


QH2b5pSm.png

dDgBU63m.png

LlqvoGb.png
Hey, thanks for the tip man!

o6VVsYM.png
Guess we're going through the slums!

yFg96uG.png
I don't mean to offend dear, but that sounds like an awful idea.

Es2X2Sb.png
I'm going to get my fur all dirty...


RYHssmb.png
... You're a skunk.

YbTaczy.png
And!?

c0UB6g0.png
... Never mind.


WUZ7Bxjm.png

oYGOdUH.png
Man, those vines really are everywhere.

7YKiXcJ.png
Hope they don't start trying to grab me or something...

guP5Ar2.png
Don't worry Pika - I would protect you!

c0UB6g0.png
That's uh... not as comforting as you think it is Bas.


3SXGImLm.png

7YKiXcJ.png
Oh no...


JEOq9ycm.png

OwPjOEjm.png

r9za1PJm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Well a great big hello to you as well Victoria!

LlqvoGb.png
Would there be any chance that you're going to let me pass without a fight?


S1z6ebAm.png

xzFVielm.png

RiAjGHBm.png

o6VVsYM.png
It's probably just a homeless person Victoria.

RYHssmb.png
Don't be rude.


2yBywKam.png

RYHssmb.png
I mean... yes?

7YKiXcJ.png
I don't really have a choice.


530Ttb8m.png

RYHssmb.png
Unfortunately no.


lOVRza2m.png

r7Uxjjtm.png

c0UB6g0.png
Arceus dammit Victoria.


XNzHggXm.png

ROAqi8dm.png

kI0OlXvm.png

a3s0AlAm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Let's try and make this quick Basil!

A3Q4yoq.png
You got it - it'll be over in no time at all!


LSUG89lm.png

boZeuKPm.png

7YKiXcJ.png
Better start off on the safe side.

RYHssmb.png
Victoria is a scrappy one.


1L3MrTpm.png

6WlrMKsm.png

oYGOdUH.png
...

H6Uk6yG.png
That's... not good; is it?

c0UB6g0.png
No, it the opposite of good - it's annoying.


vT7fdHXm.png

RYHssmb.png
Think you can take it out in one hit buddy?

guP5Ar2.png
I'll do my best!


4hclsMDm.png

guP5Ar2.png
TAKE THIS!


4o1C038m.png

H6Uk6yG.png
Um... oops?

c0UB6g0.png
*sigh*

RYHssmb.png
It's fine.


JPU00F0m.png

o6VVsYM.png
Now you can take it out though.

guP5Ar2.png
Definitely!


0N6rdpJm.png

yGXpDO3m.png

Lj73TOFm.png

A3Q4yoq.png
See?

LlqvoGb.png
Fantastic job Basil, and congrats on the level!

KQuDj79.png
Ah, um... thank you!


tdDLsMzm.png

oYGOdUH.png
Oh! You can also learn Magical Leaf.

RYHssmb.png
Hmm... it would be good to have a move that never misses, but your special attack lowering nature makes this choice harder than it should be...


2LCcp8Em.png

HAqckDcm.png

LlqvoGb.png
Eh, screw it! I'm taking a risk!


208qAOGm.png

oYGOdUH.png
Oh, an easy one.

LlqvoGb.png
This shouldn't be a problem for you Bas.

yW9nEqn.png
You got it! Just let m-


34s0abym.png

FvLnG06m.png

ZY7CfIn.png
Eep!

c0UB6g0.png
*sigh*

7YKiXcJ.png
Damn Fake Out.


ep2eo2nm.png

WJXgN25.png
Sorry...

RYHssmb.png
No, you're fine. Let's just get this thing off the field.


mtBFFqOm.png

guP5Ar2.png
This is for surprising me!


gu5WDHLm.png

ftFFbrHm.png

WJXgN25.png
Why is it never enough...

c0UB6g0.png
Because you're more of a defensive 'mon, sorry Basil.

WJXgN25.png
...


DNB7CSCm.png

7YKiXcJ.png
Ah shit.


criGs8Wm.png

RYHssmb.png
Let's just take the Pichu out real quick before setting up Reflect again.

Ai8UHMS.png
Sure.


B2iXXaim.png

PyYcKlhm.png

EBayWxt.png
WHAT THE HELL VICTORIA!? JUST LET THE RAT DIE!


Wz9l5mVm.png

TYuC7ggm.png

H6Uk6yG.png
Um.. oops again?

c0UB6g0.png
Uggggghhhhh...


2wjUn62m.png

7YKiXcJ.png
Alright, I'm not risking you getting a Fire Fang to the face just to try and get another Reflect off - even if it's raining.

RYHssmb.png
Time to swap out Basil.

WJXgN25.png
Oh... okay I guess.

o6VVsYM.png
You'll get your chance another day big guy.


4bqPs5Am.png

LlqvoGb.png
You're up Triton!

kXL2pEu.png
Oh joy of joys.


WUhnZM9m.png

h2NROSAm.png

isyzekG.png
... Was that supposed to hurt?


QyqBNSLm.png

RYHssmb.png
Just... spray it with some water please?

gUHpeRl.png
Whatever gets me out of here faster.


S9QfNbgm.png

s89ADgbm.png

7jrstKH.png
Will you STOP doing that!?


SyMqxdsm.png

7jrstKH.png
GET LOST!


PsaswVem.png

RDIMrlI.png
...

oYGOdUH.png
...

RYHssmb.png
It's raining, how did you not-

7MuqASw.png
I don't want to hear it.

RYHssmb.png
It's just a Torracat; they're not tha-

7jrstKH.png
I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT!


k1LCmO6m.png

RYHssmb.png
Can you please take it out this turn?

7jrstKH.png
Will you get off my back!?


WC7gIj0m.png

pPOkptxm.png

7jrstKH.png
STOP IT ALREADY!!!


SkUv1NVm.png

aCGMJdCm.png

iOENAFBm.png

MhEiagHm.png

7jrstKH.png
Bastard.


mCt7aJym.png

RYHssmb.png
... Victoria - it's six to one at this point, I think I'll take my chances.


nn60l6Om.png

o6VVsYM.png
Now let's ju-


oR2s0XXm.png

QEZFqzem.png

EBayWxt.png
...

kXL2pEu.png
I hate my life.


ypTh5WUm.png

c0UB6g0.png
Please kill it.

7jrstKH.png
With extreme pleasure.


qMotsXEm.png

BS9bgB8m.png

eGKZmRZm.png

kXL2pEu.png
Finally.


zDOglytm.png

oYGOdUH.png
No. Really!?

LlqvoGb.png
And here I thought I was boned!


EojSkQAm.png

x8kmHqqm.png

E3Lu9AHm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Always a joy to see you karate kid.


pasnc1Em.png

c0UB6g0.png
... I do think I'll take her word for the slums being dangerous though - let's go heal up.

vyo91ea.png
Thank Arceus, you do have a brain!

EBayWxt.png
YOU COULDN'T EVEN KNOCK OUT A CAT - I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT FROM YOU!!!

...
..
.


gWDCH6Wm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Okay, I think we're ready to take this place on.


T0X6RECm.png

RYHssmb.png
And I'm accosted by a lunatic the second I step in here!


HNQzjvHm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Care to clean up Basil?

A3Q4yoq.png
It would be my pleasure!


htj38Rrm.png

UmA5owlm.png

GHXPT6Tm.png

LlqvoGb.png
Great job.

A3Q4yoq.png
Anytime!


giydRz0m.png

RYHssmb.png
Scurvy? Scat? Scars? Scum?

c0UB6g0.png
You gotta enunciate my man.


cuM8O6km.png

EBayWxt.png
What will fuck me up good? YOU'RE NOT HELPING ME HERE!


2DUYd4Bm.png

LlqvoGb.png
I also have pepper spray!

EBayWxt.png
Now get the hell away from me!


sLMYIRem.png

RYHssmb.png
Prick.

oYGOdUH.png
Huh. What's that over there?

A1uQdU9.png
Hmm... looks to be an egg.

LlqvoGb.png
Oh! I AM gonna get a free egg today, talk about my lucky day!

tRSDtNV.png
...

Es2X2Sb.png
We're not actually going to steal an egg are we?


o6VVsYM.png
It's not stealing if it's been abandoned in a pile of garbage!

yFg96uG.png
Ah, I see...


1genbOSm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Oh, and here's our encounter for the area.

RYHssmb.png
Pidove aren't... awful. There are worse Route 1 birds; I think.


ECC19kIm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Either way, I'm not turning down a free bird!


iE26dDkm.png

Alright this one has a bit of a story attached to it.

So when I was about... 15? My sister and I were doing homework on my aunt's bed when, out of no where, my sister proclaims "there's an emu outside!" Now, being the skeptical teenager that I was I didn't believe her. So I looked towards the see-through sliding door that led outside to see a large bird standing there. So I calmly told her "that's not an emu, that's a peacock" and went back to my work.
I then immediately looked back up because I just realized that there was a whole ass peacock standing outside.

Anyway, the peacock ended up hanging around and lived with us for a few years - my sister decided to name it Penelope.
So I thought since peacocks have major gender differences, and Unfezant also have major gender differences - I'd name this Pidove in memory of Penelope the peacock!


QF4uq29m.png

RYHssmb.png
... So uh, what's up with the small glowing star sitting in the corner?

oYGOdUH.png
Is it some sort of underground experimental drug that I'm unaware of?


pTOjSh1m.png

RAz6Ilwm.png

RYHssmb.png
Cool, doesn't explain what it is.


ZxoVayKm.png

aQSkLJLm.png

c0UB6g0.png
... I am now even more skeptical.


vk95viEm.png

oYGOdUH.png
Oh.

RYHssmb.png
So this random glowing object randomly appears all throughout the region, disappears when you touch it, and people use it to heal their Pokemon?

LlqvoGb.png
Well hell, sign me up!


w9vXstWm.png

wnC51bam.png

RYHssmb.png
So, how's everyone feeling? Any new limbs? Can you shoot lasers out of your eyes?

7jrstKH.png
I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU JUST TRUSTED THE WORD OF A HOBO!!!

ZY7CfIn.png
Calm down Triton, it all worked out!

7jrstKH.png
AND WHAT IF IT HAD BEEN SOME SORT OF WEIRD DRUG - WHAT THEN!?

o6VVsYM.png
But it wasn't!

kXL2pEu.png
Why the hell do I put up with you...?

RYHssmb.png
You know you're more than welcome to leave if you want; I'm not holding anyone hostage.

gUHpeRl.png
...

RYHssmb.png
Triton?

kXL2pEu.png
Let's just... keep going.

o6VVsYM.png
Fine by me.

iO2sE3u.png
...


8vepzQKm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Well, so far so good.


8kZVNYSm.png

c0UB6g0.png
... I take it back - I want out.


X7UCsBUm.png

RYHssmb.png
Hmm...

WJXgN25.png
Pika, please don't do anything you'll regret.

o6VVsYM.png
Like what?

H6Uk6yG.png
Well, like-


hLzpUKYm.png

ZY7CfIn.png
PIKA!!!

LlqvoGb.png
Sorry Bas, I can't hear you over the sound of me leaping over the large gaps onto precariously small ledges!

guP5Ar2.png
Do you like to make me panic!?

LlqvoGb.png
I make everyone panic Basil, welcome to the party!


P1mqHpNm.png

LlqvoGb.png
See? We're fine.

o6VVsYM.png
Now let's kee-


mu2Mm6Bm.png

oYGOdUH.png
... Did... did that box just run away from me?

iO2sE3u.png
I guess all those nutcases weren't complete nutcases after all!

Rxfm9J6.png
What do you know.


RYHssmb.png
... I have to find out what's in that box.

iO2sE3u.png
How are you-

EBayWxt.png
AFTER IT!


fMJmTHUm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Oh, and Basil leveled up.


Gynh7V7m.png

EBayWxt.png
Where!?


AUDv3Ppm.png

EBayWxt.png
Well keep your filthy paws off of this one - IT'S MINE!

SNsTZgj.png
I'm starting to think she belongs down here with all these lunatics...

RDIMrlI.png
You're just now starting to think that?

iO2sE3u.png
...

Rxfm9J6.png
Hey uh... Triton? I s everything okay?

D5Ldpge.png
You seemed... off earlier. When we got healed by that weird star?


gUHpeRl.png
I'm fine. I don't know what you're talking about.

QebSf7A.png
I'm not gonna let this go so easy Triton!


jRPvi4xm.png

oYGOdUH.png
*gasp*

LlqvoGb.png
There it is!


14aCxfnm.png

1e9Z8fUm.png

lImjdVQm.png

EBayWxt.png
You aren't gonna get away from me that easy!!!


KlfNL3Qm.png

EBayWxt.png
GET BACK HERE!!!


msHlb29m.png

RYHssmb.png
Dammit, lost it.

tJyIwOo.png
It's okay Pika - I'll help keep an eye out!

o6VVsYM.png
Awesome, you can hang out on my shoulder to get a better look; tell me if you see something!

aPkTkKF.png
You got it!

kXL2pEu.png
You shouldn't be encouraging her Dusty.

zqGZInw.png
But... I'm just trying to help?

kXL2pEu.png
*sigh*

gUHpeRl.png
Right.


TNkQTzb.png
But it's nice to help people Triton; like a certain bug-friend is trying to help you!

7jrstKH.png
I'm not going to speak anymore today.

QebSf7A.png
WHY WON'T YOU LET ME HELP YOU!?

H6Uk6yG.png
Diamond, do you have any idea what's going on?

tRSDtNV.png
None whatsoever my dear.

Es2X2Sb.png
I've been far to focused on trying to keep the grime out of my fur...


H6Uk6yG.png
Oh, okay. What about you Mill?

bgHC8Em.png
There's nothing but trash to eat down here - I'm wasting away!

Ai8UHMS.png
... Right.


zV2w2Som.png

RYHssmb.png
Maybe if I just...


N07bOnjm.png

LlqvoGb.png
YES!


gdOHpLgm.png

LlqvoGb.png
Come to mama box-baby!


N5SaZVJm.png

RYHssmb.png
... Huh.

WJXgN25.png
Please do-


jnoufO1m.png

LlqvoGb.png
BOMBS AWAY!

ZY7CfIn.png
YOU'RE GONNA GIVE ME A HEART ATTACK!!!


VCrrD7Gm.png

RYHssmb.png
Stop worrying - everything's fine.

o6VVsYM.png
Right Dusty?

aPkTkKF.png
That was so much fun! Can I ride on your shoulder more often?

LlqvoGb.png
Sure!

7YKiXcJ.png
Scout used to ride around on my shoulder, and it's too quiet without him there now...

zqGZInw.png
What was that?

oYGOdUH.png
Nothing!

o6VVsYM.png
Let's stay focused.

G6tdisV.png
Got it!


z87iXSRm.png

RYHssmb.png
Wait a second...


eRzVEy4m.png

6Ho3Ng6m.png

LlqvoGb.png
YES! Free egg ahoy!


w7Chbexm.png

o6VVsYM.png
See Diamond? It was abandoned - we're saving it.

A1uQdU9.png
Hm? Yes of course.

Es2X2Sb.png
Can I please take a bath once we're out of here?


RYHssmb.png
Uhh... sure?

yFg96uG.png
Thank Arceus.


RbpOwczm.png

o6VVsYM.png
Now to see if our little box friend went up the stairs instead!


UUyWswwm.png

EBayWxt.png
Dammit!

RYHssmb.png
It gave me the ol' slip-n-slide.

iO2sE3u.png
I don't think... that's a real thing.

LlqvoGb.png
Well at least it looks like there's a TM hidden up here!


Gvm5y9vm.png

kBCbLS4m.png

oYGOdUH.png
...


DFrEt46m.png

c0UB6g0.png
We're gonna pretend this never happened.


jTh1u0cm.png

o6VVsYM.png
I guess we'll try the stairs!


VqOXXEYm.png

oYGOdUH.png
... Huh.

RYHssmb.png
How long were we in there?

1PnDb94.png
Too damn long - I'm starving!

oYGOdUH.png
Didn't you just raid a candy store?

b2vOh3A.png
CANDY ISN'T A MEAL!!!

RYHssmb.png
... Basil how much did Mill spend in there?

H6Uk6yG.png
Well if we take into account the mountain of wrappers along with-

HcBdDfb.png
Alright alright! I get it.


pwka1kmm.png

oYGOdUH.png
Oh! Another one of these weird star-shard things.


3QaWfK6m.png

RYHssmb.png
Hmm... the team's actually fine though, so I guess I'll just leave it for now.


PYzLXvHm.png

o6VVsYM.png
No need to waste the limited resources!


joG6e3em.png

EBayWxt.png
That box has GOT to be running out of places to hide!

H6Uk6yG.png
You... do remember why we came in here in the first place; right?

RYHssmb.png
Catch the box?

H6Uk6yG.png
The plants?

oYGOdUH.png
Ohhh! Right.

o6VVsYM.png
Box first though.

Ai8UHMS.png
Um, sure.


1KYlfoWm.png

H6Uk6yG.png
Maybe we ca-

oYGOdUH.png
Wait, shush. You hear that?

H6Uk6yG.png
Uhhh...


UjBufDZm.png

lkA4vt0m.png

VBe4bczm.png

EBayWxt.png
SOUNDS LIKE A RUNAWAY BOX!!!

ZY7CfIn.png
Please wait up!


fq54Ajpm.png

guP5Ar2.png
And stop jumping over dangerous gaps!

RYHssmb.png
Stop. We don't want to scare it away.

Ai8UHMS.png
*sigh*


Z5ofmrfm.png

RYjBXpTm.png

RYHssmb.png
Well the voice in my head is making some sense...


gkPvDoRm.png

2axRxV3m.png

5Ysgzi5m.png

oYGOdUH.png
... Wait. When did I start hearing voices in my head...


YX2X2jrm.png

7fydg4Hm.png

EBayWxt.png
Oh HELL NO! Ash you motherfucker - you said you'd stay out of my head if I brought you with me!

hfH7guD.png
...

28Cj7uC.png
You haven't checked in with me in a while - I feel this was warranted.


EBayWxt.png
YOU DICKHOLE!!!


1FHKRIpm.png

H6Uk6yG.png
Um... Pika-

EBayWxt.png
WHAT!?


IoKRROVm.png

WJXgN25.png
The um... box got away.

oYGOdUH.png
...

EBayWxt.png
ARCEUS DAMMIT!!!


Wvi1xVrm.png

iO2sE3u.png
...

TNkQTzb.png
Um... I gained a level guys!


EBayWxt.png
YOU USELESS SACK OF SHIT - YOU MADE ME LOSE MY BOX!!!

c2TbJFv.png
Well if you actually did what you what you were told to do every once in a while I wouldn't have to resort to this!

EBayWxt.png
YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO RESORT TO THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!

zqGZInw.png
Is she... arguing with herself?

fq0aTuZ.png
I'm so tired of this - I just want to take a nap at this point.

WJXgN25.png
Pika, please stop yelling at yourself - it'll be okay!

EBayWxt.png
ASSHAT!!!

c2TbJFv.png
UNGRATEFUL CURR!!!

RYHssmb.png
Dammit, I'm not doing this with you right now!



KFGgxChm.png

EBayWxt.png
Great, it got away again!


zbSTxRmm.png

RYHssmb.png
So it either went in here-


qoTY9w8m.png

RYHssmb.png
-or down here.

o6VVsYM.png
And my gut says to go down, so that's what we'll do!


T889d07m.png

LlqvoGb.png
Ah ha! Now this looks like the right way!


6y482N2m.png

o6VVsYM.png
And I even think I hear the pitter patter of little box footsteps!


AWPl1vom.png

EBayWxt.png
I've got you cornered now!


LzK80Jem.png

o6VVsYM.png
But first.


MnlEXspm.png

lsGc5y3m.png

EBayWxt.png
NOW I'M COMING YOU LITTLE-


iTqdir8m.png

oYGOdUH.png
... Oh, "Sc" as in "Scraggy" - I'm an idiot.


gxGJzZlm.png

RYHssmb.png
Ah, and Scrafty.

7YKiXcJ.png
...

LlqvoGb.png
Welp we're quite possibly screwed.

guP5Ar2.png
You're the one that wanted to chase it!

RYHssmb.png
Sometimes we can't help but to chase down treasure that we have no hope of obtaining.

guP5Ar2.png
What does that even mean!?


QgIMszgm.png

jSXAFWMm.png

qEZiPSYm.png

BKRqM7om.png

fEAh03am.png

oYGOdUH.png
Oh, you are absolutely not staying in here Dusty.

RbbS8SA.png
Oh...

Rxfm9J6.png
It's okay kid - another time.

PfRd7bM.png
I know...


N15clnqm.png

LlqvoGb.png
You're up Basil!

Ai8UHMS.png
At least this all almost over now...


Y9UbDUQm.png

TNkQTzb.png
I'm up first!

o6VVsYM.png
Perfect, let's get the ball rolling!


oKBFLSgm.png

ARxEsOKm.png

RYHssmb.png
Hm, that wasn't actually too bad.

o6VVsYM.png
Maybe we'll make it out of this alright!


HFClSnom.png

o6VVsYM.png
Flute, keeping hitting them as hard as you can; Basil, time to set up.

QebSf7A.png
Yes ma'am!

guP5Ar2.png
You got it!

So here's the plan - double team that Scrafty.

Sounds good to me!

Screw it - we're almost done here anyway!

o6VVsYM.png
Basil you're faster so you can take care of the Scrafty; Flute finish what you started and take out the Scraggy.

*grumble*

yW9nEqn.png
Yeah, sure!

A3Q4yoq.png
And down you-

ZY7CfIn.png

H6Uk6yG.png
I uh... guess it wasn't enough...

DAMMIT, I should have swapped who you each were targeting!

I'm swapping you out Basil.

ZY7CfIn.png
What!? Can't you just heal me?

WJXgN25.png
O-or is this because I couldn't take down the Scrafty...?


oYGOdUH.png
Wha- NO! I just don't want to waste a potion and it would be good to let someone else get some experience!

LlqvoGb.png
You did great Basil!

KQuDj79.png
O-oh!


L7DdwLhm.png

LlqvoGb.png
Anyway, Diamond you're up!

Es2X2Sb.png
I know I've been saying I want to prove myself, but couldn't it have been in a place that's a bit more... sanitary?

QebSf7A.png
Suck it up and buckle up, we're almost done here!

Please refrain from touching me with your filthy hands.

LlqvoGb.png
I knew it was a good idea to swap into you!

Es2X2Sb.png
We'll have to agree to disagree darling.


1GjJGLbm.png

EBayWxt.png
We're almost done here - let's finish it up!


01KSTPom.png

QebSf7A.png
I won't miss again!


ddGOHt9m.png

MM44sdmm.png

nyNWQfW.png
And done.

TNkQTzb.png
Thanks for the help!

nyNWQfW.png
Yes well, I suppose you regret calling me the weak link now don't you!

GRRV6Ij.png
Yeah yeah, I was wrong.


O4c9A8Rm.png

QebSf7A.png
Now you decide to try and hit me!? When we're almost done!?


ew6j7PDm.png

RYHssmb.png
Eh, we don't really need it anymore anyway.


gFb6zpim.png

Flute, would you mind?

7YKiXcJ.png
Sure.


PAB4Xe4m.png

LlqvoGb.png
Not so intimidating now are you!?


dNBu04Um.png

EBayWxt.png
That's right buddy, back away and I'll let you and your goons live.

And you didn't even get to keep what was in the box.

Comic artist. Idiot. Has far too many active projects for his own sanity. Unreliable when it comes to updates on his non-comic endeavours.
Oh my god, the box... I feel like Reborn has a lot of side quests like this, actually. Annoying. But hey, still no deaths, I'm curious about that egg. (Also, don't worry about the delayed update, I know my updates haven't been coming properly recently either. Life happens, is all.)

Doesn't understand sarcasm yet is quite good dishing it out, he always laughs at inappropriate times,
hope you're feeling well Pika
Hmm... maybe N and Bianca?
N because Pika's entirely biased, and Bianca because unlike most of the other rivals Pika has had Bianca was the only one to not kill a 'mon.
That is a major problem that I have with most Nuzlockes, the point of a rivalry is supposed to be friendly competition (unless you're playing gen 1 or 2). There is NOTHING friendly about your supposed friends killing your pokemon. It's such a stigma to me that I'm actually more likely to lose a mon from a random route trainer than anyone important I'm THAT paranoid about it.
Dear god...
H6Uk6yG.png
I guess I can make an addendum to the budget sheet to take a little bit of candy into account...
Suddenly I'm imagining Basil here in the role of Pika's secretary... lord knows she might need one what with being the champion of two regions.

It seems quash is working, Pika's brain is moving last.

huh, Flute's more of a sweetheart than I previously realized.

Now question, do you have a way to stop the portraits from pixelating? Because the ones I made get way too blurry when I try to turn them into a PNG.

edit: ... so I've just learned you can resize them from this website. I never knew that before...

Oops?

Redninjapuffles are known to want to create their own nuzlocke stories or comics, however, many have yet to start one.
Solid snake was in that box actually

this pokemon can be found encouraging plant growth in other people's gardens, but can be territorial about the resulting blooms
upd8 schedules are fragile things, it's okay if they go out the window a bit

im glad you're feeling a bit better, and that you continue to feel even better!!

im tickled by the box mystery. hunting down a box, in the dark, in the dirt, and boom, a scraggy gang. beautiful, really

Because they're the two rarest types, they're the rarest pokemon. Yes, that's logical. No, there aren't other Ghost/Ice types. Froslass doesn't exist.
i wonder what's in the egg.

Now, see, Pika, this is why you shouldn't always chase after moving boxes. Not that I expect her to learn anything close to a permanent lesson from this.

It likes to stay inside and use the internet. Sometimes it leaves its computer to use a different device, or rarely draw.
i feel like the only thing the evil team has to do to defeat Pika is just to lure her into an active volcano by putting a steady stream of pokemon eggs in a path directly into it.

Normally I might say 'how do you know someone will die?' but this is Pokemon Reborn, and quite frankly, I'm surprised none of Pika's mons have died yet. And I by no means expect it to last.
