I have some Lockes in some rather tough games planned. However, to realize that potential, its best to start...

sHsmAWA.jpg

...smol.
That's right, this run is primarily intended to get my hands dirty in the world of lockein', and @Stormer gave me a good excuse to do so.
Might as well get started.
1. Only catch the first Pokemon per route or area
1a. Shiny Pokemon may be caught and used regardless of this rule
1b. Gift Pokemon are free to use regardless but you can only get one per area
1c. Some routes will have a pinwheel forest clause in effect
1d. The underground. Currently, I am using a one per unique area rule.
1e. Great marsh - first that stays caught, can keep trying until you get something.
1f. Cheryl clause - if an AI partner kills your first attempted catch, you may attempt to catch the first encounter after said partner leaves
2. Faint = dead, box it or release it
3. Nickname your Pokemon
4. No legendary/mythic Pokemon may be used.

Aiming for updates 2-3x a week. Updates will be present below as I upload them.
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4 - Wednesday, assuming the best.

Today I will nuzlocke the wonderful game that is Pokémon Platinum! This fixes many of the issues present in the earlier sinnoh games, and adds
plenty of features to boot. Now to crack it ope-

wm4INsL.jpg


Huh?

Whatever, I have the hardware needed for this... thing..., so I might as well take a look.

QnsT7ze.jpg


(Sidenote - The initial startup screen is just, like, 25 seconds of black before asking for the language. Thanks, ILCA.)

uFJ6cys.jpg

zJ84Dzg.jpg


I'd have to go with the one I'm typing in. Seems like it would be fitting.

AkWT3Po.jpg


Hello, Rowan.

vSkA1BG.jpg


Lucas seems about right for this run.

O2tQ7Qg.jpg


Yup.

ifQRMZh.jpg


This game is as close as pokémon and minecraft get. Seems fitting.

u8sGFtM.jpg


Here we go.

204VG65.jpg

fY0kDMC.jpg


Let's go Johto confirmed.

GZddfzM.jpg


They got my joycon colors wrong smh my head.

B7K7fL3.jpg


Whatever, at least I'm loaded. (Not as much as in gen 7, but it beats the usual)

Z51UCSA.jpg


The plot man cometh.

E1Hdghg.jpg


Finally, the overworld.

LhIihlZ.jpg


It's not pokémon without this guy.

nMI5NbD.jpg


Making an entrance, I see.

RrWb3Nv.jpg


Sure, just give me a sec to check out your roo-

DcgXMNC.jpg


Hypocrite.

PgdyttX.jpg


Moving on to the lake.

o11cF60.jpg


Business, you wouldn't get it.

YnLHk5T.jpg

MkV5FoL.jpg


They did? Huh, wonder how they could be so klutz.

FkIJGYW.jpg


Oh nooo... route 1 birds I'm so scaaared...

G4tY0LX.jpg

ZzoorPL.jpg


I monkey around some.

2fGQv2W.jpg
qF6Jidh.jpg

egOAQGP.jpg


Time to strike.

30kWvWn.jpg

zTmvn9t.jpg


Nice, nice.

qWHy1sn.jpg


It'll be fine, chill.

UWiav5M.jpg


Hokay, maybe not.

8wR3t6l.jpg


Ehmm...

qZa1fMf.jpg


Off the hook... for now...

Finally. These running shoes work a lot like the walking mechanics in the gamecube games, with running being activated by pushing the analog stick further. However, it is not as nuanced as it is in those games. The D-Pad works the same as in earlier games (typical B button run).

umka7r1.jpg

pLHDoLj.jpg


Thanks, Jeb. Let me through, I have a monkey to nickname.

nLrQiZz.jpg

wxlC1fd.jpg


It's a locke, that's kind of a whole thing...

rNWSKU8.jpg


Because Monke is too Cliché.
hos7WEv.jpg

Neutral nature. A good monkey.




xrBych3.jpg


Progress.

1asnq6U.jpg


You said that, like, 20 screenshots ago.

XFYJ9Qb.jpg


I've played video games before you don't have t-

AytlMw0.jpg


Stop.

ozA4gOp.jpg


PLEASE.

Okay that's better. Anyhow, this is where the locke begins, as balls in sinnoh can be first purchased at this pokémart, even prior to the catching tutorial.

Gonna need a couple.

52UIP2I.jpg

mlcGnSJ.jpg


Capture on.

I45C2cP.jpg


You ain't from Sinnoh if you never done this befo.

pN2uOf6.jpg

ww9zBps.jpg


wJJ1a0U.jpg

Another neutral fella. Not pictured is the nature, Simple. The bidoof line gets access to some strangely powerful stuff. Glad I got this.

EKxM1p5.jpg


Lake Bird.

ucttEmd.jpg

HErkuuj.jpg


hEBF6K2.jpg

Because StarLee. Timid is kind of a weird nature here, as the speed boost is nice but attack is very important on this type of bird. Both stats are of equal importance, neutral.

0sL8qp5.jpg


Almost forgot the basics.

BIwIXbn.jpg


What do you mean my mom needs to know about my adventure? I'm a strong and independent boy!

AR07CJB.jpg


What in the FRLG is this?

qBscsZO.jpg


This line is why the ideal BDSP rival name is "pogchamp" or "pony". I don't make the rules.

3XKSlUc.jpg


Mapsss

Mc0xTRe.jpg


The pokémon league is no match for The Drip®

3k4p1Ph.jpg


Someone tell this crazed lady I've been there and done that.

bwWDONM.jpg
1izqwEE.jpg


Good to know I won't run out of balls anytime soon.

8GRSJAf.jpg


Shinx are nice to have. An electric type will be really good for Crasher Wa-

0V7TA18.jpg


Just my luck. Whatevs, I got trainer battles to do, so-

yCRVpGo.jpg


This is where the rough edges of the initial BDSP release really show. All trainer battle themes in 1.0.0 are MIDIs with an unholy fusion of DS soundbites and crummy VST instruments. I subjected myself to this audio torture until I got the first badge so you don't have to.

OkUsn53.jpg


Results of the first battle. Monté, you're giving me a mini heart attack.

0Yob2Mr.jpg


Also he can spit now.

YQCDvOg.jpg


The city.

PsNuUox.jpg


In the original games, this man had 4 eyes. Glad ILCA addressed this issue.

NRjOnTo.jpg


Anywho, I got me map.

After this, I did a bit of wild grinding, as the rival overlevels his mons just a bit.
And there is one thing I need from a strong team, and that is,

g8CR7xX.jpg


60 base power STAB. Good.

ibXqiCZ.jpg


Shoot, I have to get a wristwatch first.

13nD7eW.jpg


Yo is that Mouse?

rdMkWBd.jpg
sVidAEp.jpg
hgkF9fb.jpg


Why I did this in reverse order, I do not know.

1wn9r6O.jpg


This could be us, but your lineage is paper.

XNWAWCb.jpg
saVoLOJ.jpg


Cool, the gimmick intended for 2 screens on 1 screen. I will most certainly (not) be using it at all times.

Zi4FIlO.jpg


The first rival battle. Weirdly late in this game.

e78PRcp.jpg


Pack it in.

RqGPCB6.jpg


For whatever reason, this guy refuses to use elemental moves on me. Well, at least that saved the locke, I guess.

oHWtqrT.jpg


Mhm.

7ovrlsj.jpg


Encounter time.

vMXrC8l.jpg


Redemption arc ahoy!

TLCRF8v.jpg

RL0luxd.jpg


8vkBZgP.jpg

This nature decreases special attack, which is a bit of a problem until it learns good stab physical moves, like spark and thunder fang. But that won't be a problem at all, riiiiiiiight?? A step below neutral.

ZVszSdb.jpg


Next encounter, here on the route I fought Jeb. A Delelelewhoooop, as a child.

zLInbMT.jpg

T76QvFC.jpg


eVcr4XU.jpg

Taken later because I am dum. Anyways, a spatk boosting nature on this bug is really pretty decent, as it will get great use out of moves like Bug Buzz. But it is paper, and that can't be good.

O5y5yw7.jpg


Here we are. In a room of finite TMs. What accurate remakes.
I hope the surfing speeds are okay.

EvaD0Zr.jpg
KZZyVzk.jpg


bc5.gif


gQmookI.jpg

A bad nature all around. Not sure what else to say here. Get boxed.

5A3rYeL.jpg


Progress baybee

xVkh2vA.jpg


I met a Gamer that day.

VmI55ux.jpg


Full house, err party, I mean.

v8HaGe8.jpg


Always thought this part looked cool.

EbbMqKP.jpg


No dupes clause here, getting another rock.

97kEGFT.jpg


sIXEqgZ.jpg

A rock with an attack boosting nature. Just like the devs intended. The superior stone.




3aw9eW9.jpg
AGmQ8g6.jpg


Nah. I'd rather have bug bite than absorb.

9r2QGlO.jpg


Hidden items are here.

SZcRuT9.jpg


First death. Revenge is a wacky move that gets your mons knocked dirt cheap. Rest in peas ya weird cat.

OdIz96m.jpg


Smashing.

VET0vZa.jpg


I have a special gambit planned for you. You'll see.

zcqVQA7.jpg


Okay, some grinding later, and Monté got the level. Now to become neutral to rocks,

4FgDiYx.jpg
B9Iw9GF.jpg


Let's go.

RaIbohx.jpg
cBFw8qA.jpg


Ah yes, the gym. Now to wipe some childrens' ego.

airvauu.jpg


Gottem.

edNlYfI.jpg


My strategy for the first gym is simple. Power-up punch is wickedly powerful this early in the game, being a decent attack with free boosts to boot.
This combined with newly learned mach punch will wipe away this sad young adult like the soddy facade he is.

0oih7f8.jpg


Captain Oblivious.

UU5Qwv9.jpg


As you should. Thanks.

Tda8Egg.jpg


Here goes nothing.

C5MTor4.jpg


Flying higher.

dDCcM7t.jpg


Getting stronger.

rAWjkOs.jpg


Standing taller.

BsQyMZb.jpg


Idk what dev thought this movelearn was a good idea, but someone ought to slap 'em. Defense curl is literally right there.

5tLqY77.jpg


Ever wanted to see a carnotaur get knocked into orbit?

6Bj62jA.jpg


Bop.

zuQbjZT.jpg


gg buffoon.

g5J7kmX.jpg


Yes, please do.

TFl1tc1.jpg


Thanks.

3tcLSkE.jpg

spongebob-meme.gif


mWlzNII.jpg


Badge get.

uWbzvnT.jpg


How quirky.

qYGiDtE.jpg


Indeed I have.

ynNX2CL.jpg


Now that rock man is out of the way, it's time to look forward, by going backward. Maybe there is still an encounter here I forgot, idk, Whatever the case is, Gardenia is next, but boy howdy is there plot between those destinations.

Tried the Crono sandwich.
I used relish instead of sweet pickles due to availability, but let's face it, they're the same thing with different textures.
I gotta say, as someone that normally hates rye bread, it is used very well here. It balances out the conflicting flavors provided by the other ingredients, yielding a nice, semi-sweet savory taste as a result.
Probably one of the best cold sandwiches I ever had, but it is easily beaten by any competent hot sandwich.
8/10.

Comic artist. Idiot. Has far too many active projects for his own sanity. Unreliable when it comes to updates on his non-comic endeavours.
I believe there is a route to the east of Oreburgh. Also, RIP Bonnie, this game really didn't want you to have Shinx, did it?

I believe there is a route to the east of Oreburgh. Also, RIP Bonnie, this game really didn't want you to have Shinx, did it?
For the first part, I was sort of alluding to that. Don't worry, I'm diving straight into lost routes this part.
And ya, No Shinx November is on. (Fighting Wake is going to suck, when I get to it.)
...

... An update, huh? I wonder what-

uED2fYw.jpg


Oh?

Is that what I th-

6HMo8DF.jpg


Yup, that is an intro sequence. Unavailable at launch, why.

Barry can walk on water. Okay then.

PJdJHG4.jpg

pIETdxD.jpg

pDRkoPi.jpg


It's time once again.

PPiCgPF.jpg


Y'know, they usually prompt the player to press the start button, or + in this case. You have to press A here, quite unusual.

Badges - 1, Deaths - 1 Shinx - 0
1X6veMD.jpg

7GoqYz5.jpg

Oh, looks like there's another zone east of Oreburgh I forgot, ought to get on it.

P3pkz8Q.jpg

Great. Juuuuust great.

kTOONf7.jpg

hysEtIz.jpg


Absolutely needed another one of these. I would truly be lost without my stones.

cuNQ7gv.jpg

Yet another mediocre spatk boosting rock. No.

bnezRPd.jpg


I'm headed there, eventually, but I have some business with a couple of pesky geodes...

xsgwCHj.jpg


Better.

Having more balls is always nice.

Buddy how I would like to meet one of those. That would be marvelous.

Heading back, rival in tow.

There are a handful of routes sans grass that possess fishing encounters. Now to try my luck at-

I would like to evolve it one day, the color scheme would work better this way.

c03rfOx.jpg

498UD8d.jpg


Okay, about this. I made a misinput and was only able to get the name on it at Eterna. Whatever, I'm not using le fish just yet, so all is good.

TkVtSDb.jpg

yv9Msi7.jpg


A rather strange nature all around. Will die to a stray static shock once evolved. Kinda okay, I guess?

CjR6ufz.jpg


Not progressing the plot? Unacceptable! Get back into the thick of it!

WZ3i9zM.jpg


Space men. Oh boy.

Uh5Z3Ab.jpg


Pretty sure the whole having good timing thing was on your side of the equation, but here I am.

RUDE space men?

OJF33uK.jpg


oki.

They have a neat posture.

Were you watching from the other side of town? I had a rather solid FOV, so...

9EstygU.jpg

dzVxHyD.jpg


Seems fun, maybe later, I got places to go,

va4Ihnn.jpg


rocks to smash,

grSNHQl.jpg


a TM to snatch,

MDrPBGc.jpg


and a bat to catch!

sMQGK9P.jpg

yXdZWtL.jpg


TTEB0N9.jpg


This, by all accounts, should be a great nature, but for whatever reason, the crobat line gets seriously mediocre physical coverage. Still going on the team though.

PsHn5sN.jpg


I can see the lab from here.

rVzAjJE.jpg


This battle music is much nicer.

Huhngnhgnhnnh?
Oh, a Manaphy egg, cool, but not allowed.

First errand done.

DFcCj8i.jpg


Gotta put it somewhere.

Ynm1Uq8.jpg


Next errand - Oreburgh derivative cave.

EjbA46m.jpg

Yet another geodude. Just, no. Stop it game.

I prefer double team.

I'm sure Lun Tsu appreciates your kindness, chubby man.

Really.

Better be something important, I have space men to slap.

Not these, clearly. They have plot armor.

Jolly isn't a bad nature here, but given that floatzel will be a mixed user, this polarizes the weasel a bit, limiting good options. Now but the speed on this guy, real nice. Maybe after I get another death, idk.

Definitely not a pokemaf reference lol

A rather interesting nature all in all, shellos is mainly a special attacker, so this really isn't bad if I intend to just use water moves and earth power. Pretty good overall.

Non-useless bat? It's more likely than you think.

Who just leaves a jar of honey? These fools.

That took all of 10 minutes, including trainer battles. You need a self confidence boost, if anything.

New clause, new bird. Let's get.

Borderline illegal. Cute, (super) lucky, and non-polar. Too bad I already have a flier.

Golly gee, I sure do love slugs!

Another decent slug. Wish I could get offensive boosts on one, but oh well.

Yup, there be berries.

Gardenia can take a loss and have no hard feelings afterwards. Be like Gardenia.

... yes

Beautiful. I need to wipe my other one sometime.

Huh, I wonder why.

Okay, Gardenia is Gardone, so now I can call it a da-

Wait shoot I almost forgot.

These will look nice when I get to it.

oOOoo...

No good without rest.

Superbug, Let's go.

YR24IA9.jpg


The fruit of my labor.

QKHzyaj.jpg


About these two, I was able to borrow Sword and LGP from an unnamed source to get the saves. I simply didn't want the games. I know what I like, thanks.

Go join Mana Pee.

Okay, that's over, for real this time.

A fine day, no deaths, progress was made. However, after this is when the underground is unlocked, which is where, supposedly, the real Brilliance of this game Shines through. Stay tuned, fellas.

Comic artist. Idiot. Has far too many active projects for his own sanity. Unreliable when it comes to updates on his non-comic endeavours.
I mean, technically you can get a ‘Mon in the Floroma Meadow if you want to use the honey. That’s a separate area. Also, I will never doubt the power of Maurice again.

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.
oh wow you have a run now

Yup, I'll get to that eventually. Also, ya, kricketune can be fantastic early-mid game if you know what you're doing. However, I expect its usefulness to taper of somewhere in the 40s as strong evos become standard.

oh wow you have a run now
Sure do! Is my signature funnier than the run or smth
Badges - 2, Deaths - 1

Sure, I said things about caves and all, but what I'm really looking forward to is a nice bike!

What do you mean I have to complete plot first?

4Aj4uQb.jpg


Whatever, I don't want to fight Jupiter just yet, so let's get to

Minin'

wb7qocQ.jpg


Auto usage, game why.

BQ0XH2u.jpg


Yup, Roark is here too.

aYyJiGI.jpg


Statues are weirdly common.

BO4OPTj.jpg


Huh. Rooms.

dIZZ4Cr.jpg


These do have spawns of some uncommon pokes, but I really want to save these rooms for later. They adjust to your current badge count, so it's most reasonable to start catching these if you get into a near-wipe scenario mid to late game.

I'm pretty well off in the mon count department, thanks.

QurAb2Q.jpg

DkwE17z.jpg


More Statues.

Well, time to deal with these two.

Gonna hit her with the evasive bird, which I somehow haven't used proper yet.

The deed is done, I'm out.

Gonna pass on this one too.

Enough of this, moving on.

Can you don't.

5T7zEVn.jpg


...Okay?

eh29e8N.jpg


Cool! Now money is renewable.

vX1dimN.jpg


And this.
I like this.

... Not yet, I got backtracking on my mind.

TeZimVi.jpg


Boy do I have just the thing!

Yep.

lwf9XHU.jpg


Okay man.

fcOC270.jpg


Some bikin' later...

Q1aqP4X.jpg

68UhGRN.jpg


hxhOkJx.jpg


Really in the same boat as Bruce, all things considered. Not going to use, as I already had the coverage I would want from this guy.

FhSvqGt.jpg


Backtracking is starting to become a recurring theme in this run.

YaD2Do0.jpg

necq4lf.jpg


Ought to get some more catches.
Bug catches.
Hah.

tUWGBu2.jpg

sgHWclw.jpg


This slather is legal under pinwheel clause, trust me.

U4xsZRD.jpg


Okay, that's over, let's go...

uIvD0wc.jpg


... shopping!

6jTjJNl.jpg
Tz3TfVd.jpg


Just need a couple things I swear.

OJkG1Bz.jpg


Smashing,

CjHo2Qz.jpg


Snatching,

pzKSpiB.jpg


And pressing forward.

tcCWQJb.jpg


I like this one.

F3zhuGO.jpg
2zXvrBp.jpg


WS58iie.jpg


This is what we call "a nature that is not good for a special attacker", which sucks, because it would be stupid funny to main chimecho in a nuzrun lmao.

Is this the guy Jupiter was talking about?

1ZU7Fom.jpg
BHcj2bx.jpg


Doomer.

Our facial expressions really clash.

Okay, well, uhh...

The more you think about this place, the cooler it gets.

uhri8yR.jpg


How is the former true here?

Grass!

Fresh and good.

bwtyN4k.jpg


9yzeBoW.jpg


Look at that boosted attack. Hell ya, brother.

VWVw2Ug.jpg


I've heard of what you have to do for spiritomb in this, I'm not doing that this run haha.

v3tbjeW.jpg


Extra berries you say?

QC5ugRI.jpg


Sick.

vLCC4hd.jpg


I miss the berry app.

XZKN6kB.jpg


You know what I said at the bike shop about this not being art class? Well, I take that back.

CtgSHbc.jpg


Blazin' ahead.

VjooFW8.jpg


Rabbit?

ROKvCGr.jpg


Well, whatever, bout time I move on.

e8UfMo3.jpg


He's a fisherman because of all the water there.

qm4RCdG.jpg


Eh, sure, new town.

cTkMmvp.jpg

ckGHw00.jpg


A lady dressed like this can only be one thing...

k8A48uN.jpg


The gym leader, that I can't fight yet.
Thanks, D/P.

Hi mom.

Um, okay?

Are you having FUN Bingus?

peCS42f.jpg


Wonderful.

i2Jst5c.jpg


Stage fright taking hold.

HNOMe9w.jpg


What fun, how'd we do?

bsBSQvk.jpg


... idk how contests work

vTg9OOy.jpg

Anyhow, back to your irregularly scheduled run.

lMez9HY.jpg


Dang, I couldn't even find the pokécenter in time. This will be something.

gUrrrzV.jpg

JbmaoWW.jpg


Okay this shouldn't be too bad.

RTbLrBI.jpg


I take it back, endeavor hits like a truck. Probably shoulda curl boosted rollout here.

BHXzrmr.jpg


Quick attack should have killed here, but I have the POWER OF FRIENDSHIP!
(This is going to be bad practice for gens 3-5 isn't it)

Well hey, now I can learn walking. That should make for a nice change of pace.

IskAKhZ.jpg


Okay, lemme see what I have~

Psk2c8Y.jpg


... Okay maybe the next set-

nGyFbdg.jpg


J2YS3RQ.jpg


These people have a strange definition of cute. Monkey only.

1r9LNra.jpg


Fine, whatever.

tLiFfTr.jpg


Lovely.

PPlozfs.jpg


Ominous.

hgQw1bW.jpg


Get ready for the lucky buck.

What a nice stroll, I think I'll... oh?

nJkp3Rr.jpg

Walking the beaver, don't mind me.

Almost forgot to attend church.

This guy just
has an egg.

0j0EBe2.jpg


Very well.

F4Clw3p.jpg


I have already stated that I'm passing up on spiritomb.

z7VHlj3.jpg


New route, new encounter, might as w-

Ei9femz.jpg


No thanks.

94XTGBq.jpg


The fact I find it weird that the breeder class does not have a full team in this game indicates I have been playing too much hoenn.

HpOsXcU.jpg


This man is spitting facts.

GPy3I3Z.jpg


Awesome!

gGnKUYQ.jpg


The Tomb.

km4mL41.jpg

O75WPqd.jpg
2XDm0ZE.jpg


Items.

hq1O89v.jpg


'n progress.

Hx9OpLK.jpg


Great if I have downtime.

W3nD7CW.jpg


This is a bit of a challenge in a nuzlocke, but I'll do my best.

JSHJOLB.jpg


More progress, more routes, more...

MIkMopD.jpg


... yea, I got this.

HVksoRr.jpg


yhOwqQv.jpg


Really this is a solid ponyta, I'd just rather have one that boosted an attack stat instead of speed.

Z6KItdq.jpg


There can only be one monkey.
And that's Monté.

zRD2KoZ.jpg


This is roost, great for tanky birds, which is something I do not have.

Bh7ql5S.jpg


Truly a sinnoh classic.

nwAPHUk.jpg


Anyways, brief tangent to the underground, where I met a friend. How does multiplayer interaction even work in this lmao.

knVT0PB.jpg


If anyone needs a dino, hmu.

RDqZNc4.jpg


Shony.

zamh7hL.jpg


I wonder if these slugs spawn below their evo levels. Whelp, not gonna find out today.

aQ6JEIb.jpg


Going back.

dNe89W4.jpg


And forth!

TKEU7pm.jpg


Really?

CQk7e8v.jpg


SP stands for Shield Pearl.

F3x7bYK.jpg

Zq2l1im.jpg


Do the plates really need to be this verbose?

oblp8Hq.jpg


Haha, I have a rock named that.

tQROT3v.jpg


Finally, electric coverage.

XbraRQf.jpg


Did you know that a gyarados with waterfall in rain is kinda powerful? Well, my team did not leave unscathed. RIP Bruce Badges 0-2.

DehMXWe.jpg


I'll remember these two punks

45KelY7.jpg


and what they did

swFW9AX.jpg


to my team.

TAK4xLS.jpg


Well, this is just the opening Martin needed.

U3mgD6B.jpg


Now let's cope with the grief of what just happened with SHOPPING!

XWQljsx.jpg


Yes.

uXDhJoO.jpg


A whole selection of sharp boosting x-items before the third gym. A bit overpowered, if I do say so myself.

WbusJiP.jpg

lfvPC5l.jpg


Whole swathes of TMs. I'd need more time to think about these.

nki3GxI.jpg

W5agnNt.jpg


I grabbed a few of these, way cheaper than the sphere ones.
Perhaps there's a reason for that.

6Za8ALg.jpg


That's all the shopping I need.

aQZpJmB.jpg


Elevators with dedicated operation, fancy.

JJ8oMLk.jpg


I don't even remember what this is for, probably nothing important.

jeqtQeR.jpg


So this is what happened to the game corner. I really should have expected that it was the clothes shop.

oyOm5cj.jpg

aeeGbbV.jpg


This layout really give me vibes of the gen 7 clothes shops. I think that's the second gen 7 comparison I made this run.

t9JG8og.jpg


Did you know fashion is expensive?

9on2OBX.jpg


Return of the Drip.

X3uZkf4.jpg


I feel sufficiently distracted.

GZvYtAH.jpg


Oh hi, Dawn.

xpAnyco.jpg


... Okay, thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

yz5XffJ.jpg


I'm not ready for a fighting gym just yet, so onward to Pastoria!

mtEaGIb.jpg
Do9gyBW.jpg


Well, maybe not yet, these battles are getting too close for my liking.

BbTj3Jf.jpg


Anyway, say hello to the B Team, or most of it anyways. There is another slot to fill after that egg is gone...

uRLEKiD.jpg


Besides, I need an excuse to examine those trees.

mZBEppc.jpg


Like this one.

fSF1GvA.jpg


Hey, burmy, not bad.

ba6EJfW.jpg

AgMnNhM.jpg


6ZrB6DT.jpg


Actually really good when you consider that mothim is primarily a special attacker.

ruF4HYl.jpg


And another.

D2noiJf.jpg


Smh my head.

b2e8G2j.jpg

Z2YJYIy.jpg


wwtqMhQ.jpg


Do I really need this?

YQBRrcR.jpg


Turns out, this location DOES apply to the pinwheel clause, but I found that out just a bit too late.
Man.

c2gJLQo.jpg


Finally, flying coverage. Bat evo is a go.

ysJsPT8.jpg

OaObn6S.jpg


Splendid.

Dk78JXL.jpg


Anyhow, eggs are done.

AQW5eFC.jpg
K4kQEUF.jpg


kT3p5eu.jpg


This nature isn't bad, but why? Not running this.

PuEhZQh.jpg


The B Team is now in full session, excluding Rokko. He is exempt until Fantina.

eiPwUgj.jpg


Turns out my bat loves me. Cool.

mPaOUg4.jpg


Trust me when I say her facial expression and internal machinations are two different things.

kbAbNs9.jpg


Almost forgot this place.
In fact, I did earlier.

QlNKEwP.jpg


Fine, I'll catch a dupe this time.

b19spui.jpg

wqoAjYc.jpg


UrlJcQ8.jpg


Another case of the "Not bad, but why?". One rock and he dead.

vL5RptX.jpg


Huh, wonder what this evolves.

hFsY66y.jpg


@KirbySSU Hey, what are you doing in my run? This is the only ping I'll make, I hope...

b2eXnOF.jpg


It's my run, man.

DrEhU8f.jpg


Wow, how useful.

yVhu5Qd.jpg


Version exclusives.

fGpBNUT.jpg


Huh, old people. Wonder what they have.

VDP3GQB.jpg
HKL7BJQ.jpg


Items, cool.

Po4rfhr.jpg


One air cutter knocked 'em both. Crobat is really good.

Jebk0nX.jpg


Bucky pays dividends.

IxLIRAO.jpg


And just in case you needed further proof crobat was really good, here you go.
Barbed cross poison would be devistating, but the next few gyms all resist it. Thanks, sinnoh.

c38sZky.jpg


Anyways, the B Team training montage is over and the A Team is back in session.

yHVXGyr.jpg


Bug bite is now obsolete, as Maurice learned how to take advantage of scythe hands.

w9QM9Ge.jpg


Do I really need another?

WneBdhZ.jpg


... Nah.

04oElJ7.jpg


Valor encounter. Bird's back!

Vqc4YA4.jpg

yKPUCRU.jpg


lgUW2Fi.jpg


Insult to injury. Never neutral or better attack on a bird.

0IqF0xt.jpg


Did space men hire you?

wfrgw73.jpg


Ah, this place is nice. Wish I could stay, but I'm on a mission.

3y1qL5G.jpg


Bit weird that this spot is a passageway, but whatever.

55BW1g7.jpg


Heal't.

fyY1eTS.jpg


What a lovely beach.

qL8Y32i.jpg


... Oh, this guy. Should I post an ironic doge dump?

VuT2gnH.png

LvIr1js.jpg


😠

O5T5vge.jpg

wYS6rMw.jpg


Bibarel has good feet, apparently.

wLjW58K.jpg


Saving these encounters for later.

zknH4wM.jpg


Pastoria Ho! This has been a grueling session, so let's get straight to the punch.

QWodwk0.jpg


Or, wrestle, in this case.

ekorD2T.jpg


Pretty.

83W1XgY.jpg


Trainers are down, time to crash the Wake.

89bjVIc.jpg

YygQ42C.jpg


This guy gets it.

v9h6SZI.jpg

vuXsGBx.jpg


You ever just build a wall?
Two X-Attacks later (not pictured),

NGrmkeA.jpg

janLoZ5.jpg


Floatzel here.

ZX7s7Sw.jpg


Wake's team is strong, but drug beaver is stronger.

cMjzv9H.jpg


CthfXLb.jpg


Sheesh, that's the third leader ace in a row I one shot.

xtinQ3k.jpg


No, you have MOVELEARNS!

m3awQd4.jpg


Glad we could come to an agreement.

KjaYjq5.jpg


4th 3rd badge get!

OqG70bg.jpg

RpIOv3U.jpg


Brine is fine.

VzaUrg2.jpg


Well, ya, but I ought to have a somewhat close leader fight at least once, this is just silly.

nasFsHG.jpg


Well, that mission is over. This was NOT an easy update for me. The next part will be, frankly, the exact opposite. Looking forward to that, see ya!

I can't believe they got rid of the game corner. RIP cool music. (There was nothing else interesting there, tbh). Also, Mothim is great in this gen, he has Quiver Dance. He learns it upon evolving.

okay wait first of all quick question-
why is 'dead by N3 or your money back' gone?
I know you said the curse was broken, but unless I misread the post in the mafia game, you did die N3.
ANYWAY
Anyhow, back to your irregularly scheduled run.
this made me chuckle
