Ah ha! I'm the first comment this time around - I win!
Also before I get into the comments for this update I just want to say that I love how you added all the sparkles to Lucky's portraits - it's a good touch.

I'm so sorry that this was so delayed... Life got in the way. I might also change the update day on this to Wednesdays. Saturday is just too close to my comic release dates.
Hey don't worry about it man, trust me when I say I get it.
Life sucks and it never wants to let us do nuzlockes 😕

Found a random Shroomish, I'm sorry buddy, but I don't have an Oran Berry.
*gasp*
A baby.
Okay, I overreacted. Shroomish are cute but they're nothing special; Breloom on the other hand are one of my favorite Pokemon.

9_You_mean_the_Galactic_grunts_that_you_chose_to_ignore_that_are_harassing_the_prof.png


Such as the Galactic goons harrassing the Professor a few steps behind you?

10_What_the_fuck_Looker.png


What the fuck, Looker?
I'll never know how he missed them.
Just goes to show that he's incompetent at his job and someone needs to replace him.


Professor Rowan: 0 shits given. I love him.
Professor Rowan is the best professor and I will die on this hill.


And he even insults their outfits! What a legendary professor. No-one else comes remotely close.
Full agree, Professor Rowan is the kind of professor that I respect (and slightly fear).


Hey, those idiots blocking the path are gone!

Nugget_Combusken_Happy.PNG
Ha! Now we can beat up more trainers, right?

46_NO_Fuck_Charge_Beam.png


...I wish they hadn't left.
:psyduck:
Wow that... really sucks - I'm sorry for your loss.
Even though I'm not particularly fond of this line; Blaziken is a damn good Pokemon.
RIP Nugget, we didn't have you for long but you could have been amazing 😔


I hate Charge Beam when I'm not the one using it. And of course, the actual lead of my party was Prudence, so I had to switch her out. This caused the Plusle to have a free Charge Beam on Nugget, and of course it got the Special Attack boost. There was nothing I could do. Nothing would have been able to survive a Plus boosted, +1Sp Att Charge beam. I hoped that Nugget could take out the Plusle second turn, and he was so close. If he'd gotten a slightly higher damage roll, he'd still be alive. RNG really hates me. It may have also been a crit. The only good thing that happened in this fight was Steven gaining a revenge level out of killing the Minun. Why did I let half my team be weak to Electric? All I can say is, never underestimate random NPCs in this hack. Now, none of you got to see much of Nugget, but I did. This death actually hit me really hard. Especially considering the next boss fight that I really needed him for. Mars' Purugly is scary as hell, even in vanilla. I'll admit I was tempted to turn off the game and not play again when this happened. But the run's not over yet, even if I did just lose a 'Mon that was really precious to me.
Oh man, I hate when this happens.
You never expect Plusle and Minun to be dangerous, but then they whip out a Charge Beam and suddenly a Pokemon is dead. To be fair though I would have fully assumed a five levels higher (I'm assuming) Combusken could take out a measly Plusle as well.
It always sucks when you get surprised...


Clean sweep with Prudence. What else? Sighs. Gimme the Johto starters.

58.png
59.png
60.png


Let's look at them.
... At this point I shouldn't even be surprised.
I guess Unova has no kind starter giving people while Sinnoh is the land of bounty!!!
I am so jealous, but honestly you're probably gonna need the help - especially considering this is the region with Cynthia as champion.
Even I struggled against her and I was just playing vanilla Platinum!

In this hack Meganium is a Fairy type, and has decent Special Attack. Cherri will be useful later, just not in the immediate future. (Also, if anyone can guess where I got Cherri's name from, I'll be incredibly surprised, it's kinda obscure. I will say it has something to do with an emo band.)
Meganium are fairy-types in this hack? Huh. That's actually really good. On top of that Meganium are stupidly bulky, so I'm expecting Cherri to be a good 'mon. (Also because my own Chikorita has managed to make me rethink what this line is capable of.)
While I feel like I should get the reference since I listened to so much edgy music when I was younger, nothing is actually coming to mind :cybercrime:


64.png
65.png

Here's the Fire Type. Sighs. He's not the same.
Fantastic nature though!
Also are they holding are they all holding type-boosting items as well? Lucky.

Feraligatr is a Dark type in this game. I'm assuming Fantina is third intead of fifth in Platinum? Rex will get some use soon.

Rex_Totodile_Happy.PNG
Aye, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintence!
Ah! OH GOD! He is so cute 🥺
He needs to live. Protect this precious boy above all else.

...Welcome, Belle.


Belle_Mareep_Happy.PNG
Hi! It's so nice to have a Trainer! What's got you so down?

I just lost a 'Mon that was very important to me.

Belle_Mareep_Confused.PNG
Would they have wanted you to keep moping around forever?

No, Nugget would have wanted me to continue... But I can't do that just yet. I need time...

Belle_Mareep_Angry.PNG
Well, maybe, you should keep going, anyway. Would you want their death to be in vain?

No...

Belle_Mareep_Sad.PNG
I'm sorry, that was insensitive of me to say-

No, you're right, Belle. I gotta keep at it. I should probably help out that little girl...

Belle_Mareep_Happy.PNG
That's the spirit!

I love the electric sheep.
Aw, Belle seems sweet. And she managed to pull you out of your funk!
Overall good 'mon.


I think the Johto babies all have low catch rates? Don't quote me on that though.
Either way; congrats! Elekid is probably my second favorite baby Pokemon (Riolu's first) and Electivire is a damn good Pokemon.

Bitches. The lot of you.
I have never agreed with something more.
Team Galactic is full of idiots.


109_What..png


That... Is not a Combee, nor is that something I ever expected to find in a Honey tree.
I mean, it makes sense though.
Seedot are acorns, and those come outta trees! Agree that a female Combee would have been better though.


113.png
114.png
115.png


Hello, Locke!
At least you got the mascot of nuzlockes though! I feel like that's always a stamp of pride!
That does lead me to wonder though; how many people catch a Seedot (or Nuzleaf) and name it anything other than "Locke?"
I feel like almost everyone ends up paying tribute to the original 🤔


116_Ill_handle_this_next_time.png


Next time... I need to figure out how to kill Mars' obese cat.
God, I wish you the best of luck. That hell-cat is terrifying, and I'm sure Drayano made it even worse.
All I can say is over-prepare; you can never be safe enough against Mars and her demon feline.

You are the first commentor! You're also the only one this time around! Thanks, I figured I needed a good indicator of her shiny-ness.

Life does suck, and I'll elaborate further in the main section of the update.

Shroomish are cute, and I like them a lot *Gestures to current profile pic*. And Breloom are wonderful, I used them many times in the Hoenn games.

I'm sure you'd make a fine replacement, Pika.

*Agressively agrees* Rowan is the best professor.

I miss Nugget... He reminds me of my first-ever starter...

It really does. Especially since Plusle got buffed to have 115 Sp Attack in Ren Plat, I really should have seen that coming.

Cynthia scares me. IDK how I'm going to deal with that Garchomp. (Though there is a running joke 'round the community that the only answer to Garchomp is... Another Garchomp.)

I'm excited to use Cherri, since he now has usable offensive stats and I really like the Chikorita line. Oh, and the name reference? Gerard Way, the lead singer of My Chemical Romance, wrote a comic book titled "Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys" based upon the album of the same name. One of the main characters is a 30-something year old guy named Cherri Cola. I just think he's neat. (I told you it was obscure.)

Ye, the Hoenn starters had them, too. And Hep is really fast. I appreciate him.

Considering how much I love the Totodile line, I sincerely hope so, too.

Mareep best sheep. No criticism will be taken. Screw Wooloo.

Did you know Electivire is also part Fighting-Type in this hack? He is a damn good Pokemon.

When I was going through these screenshots, I realised just how truly awful their dialogue is.

Locke will still be useful! Fantina comes third, right?

What do you mean? Locke is clearly a completely original name that nobody in the history of the franchise has ever named their Pokemon.

Hell-cat scares me. Luckily, you'll see I had a plan. And then didn't follow it and somehow won anyway.

Sorry this got delayed again, I completely forgot I had a music exam yesterday! Also, as a result of some pretty stupid things I did yesterday, I have injured my back and am in an incredible amount of real, physical pain. Ironic, considering this run's title. And since I didn't finish the portraits yesterday, I was physically unable to do them today. I did have the evolution portraits prepared, though, so look forward to those!

I admit I was panicking a little and didn't take as many screenshots as I should have... This is after two Iron Heads and a Sitrus Berry. At least that thing's out of the way. And Steven is tanking Super-effective Faint Attacks fairly well. But it's time to switch, buddy.

Steven_Metang_Sad.PNG
That is also fair. This cat really wants to kill, doesn't she?

23_Oh_shit_Honse_no.png


I switched in Honse and this happened. Oh no, Honse, I'm so sorry.

Honse_Ponyta_Confused.PNG
Why?

That thing has Facade. Which deals double damage under status conditions. It'll kill you, Honse. But still, maybe a double kick is enough to take it out? Maybe you're faster?

This feels highly illegal.

What are you doing here?

137.png
138.png


Yeah, I went through illegal areas of Mt Coronet to get here.


139.png


I got one first :3. You can't have him.

140.png


Nice, I'll beat you up next update.

141_Was_curious_as_to_what_stopped_us_from_Snowpoint.png


These two lunatics, standing in the snow, are the only thing stopping us from basically walking to Snowpoint. And Rock Climb, I think.

One more Route to explore before I challenge Gardenia.

143.png
144.png


A Meditite, huh?


145.png

A Meditite with an Attack-boosting Nature? She may find some use at some point!

Cynthia scares me. IDK how I'm going to deal with that Garchomp. (Though there is a running joke 'round the community that the only answer to Garchomp is... Another Garchomp.)
A solid ice-type (or fairy-type too I guess since it seems like Drayano added them to the game) could also deal with it pretty easily.
Hell just get a bulky water-type and give it Ice Beam - the possibilities are endless!
You'll be able to do it; I believe in you!


Oh, and the name reference? Gerard Way, the lead singer of My Chemical Romance, wrote a comic book titled "Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys" based upon the album of the same name. One of the main characters is a 30-something year old guy named Cherri Cola. I just think he's neat. (I told you it was obscure.)
Oh... yeah I would have never guessed that.
I just thought maybe it was in reference to a song that I couldn't put my finger on :sweatdrop:


Considering how much I love the Totodile line, I sincerely hope so, too.
All three of the Johto starters are great, so I agree with the Totodile love.
I always have such a hard time picking between them in Johto runs...



Sorry this got delayed again, I completely forgot I had a music exam yesterday! Also, as a result of some pretty stupid things I did yesterday, I have injured my back and am in an incredible amount of real, physical pain. Ironic, considering this run's title.
Oh, that sounds absolutely awful.
Put yourself and your health first; we'll be here when you're doing better :pillow:


(Can we just take a moment to appreciate the Galactic building music? It's so funky. I like jazz music.)
Full agree.
I think I like Sinnoh's music the best out of all the regions' soundtracks.

17_We_gonna_kill_now.png


This. This is my strategy. Metang has base 100 Defense and resists Normal types. Hopefully, they can stall that Purugly.
You know what, yeah.
Damn good plan.

19_We_both_know_Charon_doesnt_count.png


Mars, sweetie, we both know Charon doesn't count.
... I literally forgot Charon existed - again.
I always just mistake his sprite for a random scientist until someone points him out.


25.png


FUCK YES! HONSE! YOU LIVE!!!
HONSE - MY GIRL!
You bring honor to the Ponyta line :golfclap:


34_You_tell_him_Mars.png
35_Oh_hes_not.png


Put him in his place, Mars!
That's why Mars is my favorite Galactic Commander!
She's an good challenge and doesn't let Charon get away with his bullshit. Couldn't ask for more.


It is me, yes. You are too late. I already kicked them out. Vigilante justice in the Pokemon world is apparently completely legal and there's nothing you can do about it!
Let's be real for a second, if random children didn't go out and fight crime the world would have ended several times over.
Vigilante justice is the only viable form of justice in the Pokemon world.

Ooh, Cheryl wants to FIGHT!
Oh, that's a interesting change.
Then again this is Drayano; you should expect that everything and everyone wants to fight you.


49_WHY_THE_FUCK_DID_IT_HAVE_ROCK_TOMB.png


WHY THE FUCK DOES EVERYTHING HAVE ROCK TOMB?!!! WHY DOES EVERYTHING WANT TO KILL MY MOTH!!!
Better question; why the fuck does a WAILMER SPECIFICALLY have Rock Tomb!?
It's a whale.


60.png


Well, I know which 'Shroom I'm nabbing.

61_Gottim.png


Gottim!
BABY!!!!

My little Shroom buddy.
Baby boy, child man! I love him with all my love!
And Poison Heal is a fantastic ability. Just stick a Toxic Orb on that bad boy and he'll go for miles!


81_But_youre_a_Special_Attacker.png
82.png
83.png


You're a special attacker, though. (Also, if you've ever read the fic that this Rotom's name comes from, I deeply apologise.)
Rotom are always good, and now I'm curious where the name is from.
It's... familiar, but I can't place it.


89.png


I'm sorry, she's fucking WHERE???
You don't actually have to go get her right!?
What a bizarre change!


116_Oh_god_you_suck.png

My shitty Natures curse continues. (Obviously, his name comes from Autumn in Sinnoh by Nessi.)
His nature might be garbage, but his ability is fantastic.
(There are so many Orions out there!)

Why couldn't you be a Chimecho?

Flutter_Mothim_Angry.PNG
Stop being mean to the newbies.
To be entirely fair, I too would have been pissed to get a Chingling over a Chimecho.


133.png
134.png
135.png


I named him Littlefoot because: Abomasnow= Abominable Snowman=Bigfoot. But he's small, so Littlefoot.
Clever, but all I could think of when I saw his name was an old childhood favorite.


Yeah, I went through illegal areas of Mt Coronet to get here.
This feels... so wrong.

A Meditite with an Attack-boosting Nature? She may find some use at some point!
Damn, that's a really good catch!
Here's hoping Cassandra manages to live up to her potential!

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also writes and is a huge fan of Smash Bros.
I had no idea there was a hack of Platinum! The game is already challenging enough as is :ohdear:
Even more so considering you'll be doing the second half blind :ohdear:
These are some really cool changes though-early Eevee, early Route 216 fucking what?
Anyway, your team is looking stacked as heck (and :O at you already catching a shiny!). I kind of wish this was vanilla Plat so I could be more helpful, but I'm looking forward to seeing what's changed later on.
Also the portraits are a really nice touch and absolutely adorable 🥺.

Comic artist. Idiot. Has far too many active projects for his own sanity. Unreliable when it comes to updates on his non-comic endeavours.

A solid ice-type (or fairy-type too I guess since it seems like Drayano added them to the game) could also deal with it pretty easily.
Hell just get a bulky water-type and give it Ice Beam - the possibilities are endless!
You'll be able to do it; I believe in you!



Oh... yeah I would have never guessed that.
I just thought maybe it was in reference to a song that I couldn't put my finger on :sweatdrop:

Yeah, but there's so many scary fights in this game... I hate to see what Dray's done to them...

Nah, I decided on complete obscurity for that one.

The Johto starters are all precious babies who must be protected at all costs.

Well, I'm recovered now, so I should be good to go! And my exams are all over :)

Sinnoh has excellent music. I haven't secured my mitts on a copy of BD or SP, but I've seen others play it and it seems like the soundtrack is still decent. Though apparently the pre Day 1 patch copies of the game had dreadful Trainer Battle music.

A great plan that I forgot the true purpose of :^)

Charon sucks, it's honestly completely valid to ignore his entire existence.

My Honse truly is a wonderful being of the equine variety.

Also the iconic flying saucer dress.

Sadly, this is a very true statement.

Violence is the only solution.

I have no idea. It's like the entire game is punishing me for wanting to use my moth.

:3

First, I must find a Toxic Orb. But yes, I agree, Breloom is fantastic.

I am not admiting to his name origin... But it is a very old fanfic, and may or may not have been written by the creator of Snakewood.

I think it's to encourage exploration. And emphasise early Ice Types for a change.

Yeah, Machop FTW! Apparently, he also has a perfect IV in Speed and Attack.

Such is the way of the nuzlocker... 😔

Is it bad that I totally forgot this franchise existed until you brought it up? Which is weird, because I used to watch it as a kid.

It really does. How is this legal...

Cassandra may come in handy against Maylene. I hope she's able to live up to her potential!

Oh yeah, Drayano has hacked every DS game except Diamond and Pearl. And this is way harder than base Platinum.

Yeah, maybe this wasn't such a good idea. But that's half the fun!

I know, I was expecting something to stop me... But nothing did. The removal of Rock Smash is a blessing...

Naw, it's fine. It's a blind playthrough, I should be totally fine if I just constantly grind, right?

Why, thank you! I worked quite hard on those! I'm glad you like them, and welcome to this disaster of a run!

I'm not dead! Here's another update! Also the reason for the delay: My HSC exams. But they're over, now! Also, I'll admit it. I was too scared to fight Jupiter. I had every other part of this update played a while ago, but I got to Jupiter and chickened out. I only got up the courage to actually fight her today. Y'all can see below how that went!

2_This_is_it.png


I'm back at it again with my shenanigans, let's fight Gardenia!

3.png


Only for three weeks!

4.png


Grass master? My Grass types disagree with you!

Flutter_Mothim_Angry.PNG
You didn't bring any Grass types.

I have enough for a mono-Grass team! (And yes, for the record, I do actually own 6 Grass types. 7 if you count Rotom Lawnmower.)

Flutter_Mothim_Angry.PNG
They're not with you, they don't count.

5.png


Because I did??? I had to walk all the way to Route 216 to find you!

Hmmm yes... Fun... In a Nuzlocke...

9_Hidden_Power_Stun_Spore.png


Curse your ridiculously high Special Defense.


Flutter_Mothim_Sad.PNG
Why do I always get hit with the Stun Spores???

10_Teeter_Dance_Hidden_Power._Time_to_switch.png


Of course he got Teeter Danced. Gonna have to switch him out.

Flutter_Mothim_Confused.PNG
Why is the ceiling pink?

11_Holy_shit.png


You wanna learn Bug Buzz right now???

Flutter_Mothim_Shocked.PNG
Bzzzzzzzzz! Bzzzz! How do I protect myself again?

12.png


Handle this hazard, Honse.

Honse_Ponyta_Happy.PNG
Yes, of course!

13_Flame_Wheel_Stun_Spore_missed.png


A single Flame Wheel. Stun Spore missed this time.

Honse_Ponyta_Happy.PNG
I am ever the artful dodger!

14_Flame_Wheel_Ancient_Power.png


Ahh. Shit. Ancient Power does a lot. But Honse is faster!

15_Super_Potion_Flame_Wheel.png


Bloody Super Potions.

16.png


There we go. Switching time!

Honse_Ponyta_Sad.PNG
I will agree on that one.

17.png


...I'm starting to think that we're slightly underlevelled...

Chess_Fearow_Happy.JPG
Nothing I can't handle!

I hope you're right, Chess.

18_Aerial_Ace_Leech_Seed.png


One Aerial Ace and Leech Seed later... We're going to be here for a while, aren't we?

19_Goddamn_Protect.png


Of course it has Protect. Wonderful.

Chess_Fearow_Angry.JPG
I'm sick of this shit!

20_Nice_crit_Chess.png


Oh... Nice Crit, Chess.

Chess_Fearow_Angry.JPG
I told you I was over it.

21.png


A Breloom? This shouldn't be too difficult... 4x weakness and you're probably way faster. There's no way it could-

22_He_survives_Mach_Punch_on_1_HP.png


HolyshitChesshowareyoualive?!!

Chess_Fearow_Happy.JPG
The pure power of determination!

I... Completely forgot Mach Punch was a thing. I don't know how you lived that hit, but I'll take it. Nice clean one-shot on your behalf, anyway.

23.png


Hep vs Cherrim, it'll probably set up Sunny Day, making our life easier.

24_Used_Sunny_Day_only_survived_a_Flame_Wheel_because_Focus_Sash.png


Screw your fucking Focus Sash.

25_Weather_Ball_Crit_Hep_still_lives_another_day_though_stupid_Sunny_Day.png


Crit Weather Ball does a lot of damage, but Hep can handle it.

Hephaestus_Quilava_Angry.PNG
Of course I can!

26_Last_Mon.png


I have the distinct feeling it is, though.

Steven_Metang_Angry.PNG
I'll end this, no problem!

27_Magical_Leaf_does_barely_anything_and_then_Roserade_dies_to_a_crit_Zen_Headbutt.png


Damn, you weren't kidding. Magical Leaf did nothing, then you just one-shot it with a crit Zen Headbutt???

Steven_Metang_Happy.PNG
I am the best Metang in the world, after all!

28.png


Yes, we are. Some Grass master you are.

31.png


Aaaaand... We did it! Another deathless gym fight!


32_Prepping_something....png


Don't mind me, sticking my shiny elephant onto the team...

For some reason, the game glitched out and she lost her shininess. I don't know why. I did manage to fix it, but why it happened in the first place is beyond me. She was a legitimately enountered wild shiny.

33.png
34.png


Yeah, so maybe you should know to get out of my way?


35.png


Stronger than yours, you mean?

36.png


Nah, they don't like you.

37.png


NOT MY SHINY!!!

38.png


Kill.

Good.

42.png


Thank you for the monetary gain.

43.png


No, your speech pattern is too fucking weird.

44.png

I somehow don't believe that's an Interpol requirement.

Good to know you're aware of that. Leaving all the work to me again?

Neither are you.

Nah, I'll take the spooky stairs. It's more fun.

51_Both_screens_were_here._Im_not_ready_to_fight_Jupiter.png


Huh, I found both screens here. Anyway, I'm heading back to Mt Coronet to train, I'm not dealing with the crazy skunk lady now.

Here's a confidence booster for me.

I'mma crush that skunk into a stinky mush!

Love the enthusiasm, Lucky.

55_Thats_the_team.png


Okay, let's fight Jupiter.

56_Nice_I_have_a_Rotom.png


Oooh, shiny! I think this is the key to unlock the Rotom forms? ...I should probably fight her for real, now.

57.png
58.png


Actually, no, I came to kick you out of your own building for the shits and giggles, but that works too.


59.png
60.png


As if we didn't know her name was Jupiter.


61.png
62_Confuse_Ray_Zen_Headbutt.png


This Golbat is actually hella annoying. I hate Confuse Ray... (Also, Steven doesn't come close to taking it out with Zen Headbutt.)


63_She_had_to_switch_didnt_she.png


Of course she switched to her Sableye... Why was I surprised by this? Anyway, I'm not keeping out a Psychic type against a Dark/Ghost type.

64.png


I switched Flutter in to a single Shadow Claw... I'm sorry, Flutter. You were a great friend and companion.

65_Best_Moth._He_was_hit_with_Shadow_Claw_before.png


Flutter_Mothim_Angry.PNG
What are you on about?

Oh thank God that our side can also get crits.

66.png


I sent in Chess because I assumed he was faster.

67_Not_pictured_Confuse_Ray_Aerial_Ace_didnt_quite_kill.png


...I was wrong. (Not pictured: Aerial Ace leaving this stupid bat with one HP and it using a Confuse ray.)

Chess_Fearow_Confused.JPG
The sky tastes like Cheddar...

That's enough of that.

Bird vs Plant is an easy fight, right?

When the fuck did Tangela learn Shock Wave??? Pru. you're still faster than this, you can win!

Phew.

Prudence_Pidgeotto_Shocked.PNG
Can I get out of here now?

Of course, Pru.

71_Finally_this_fucker.png


Here it is. This fucker. This is what I trained you for, Lucky!

Lucky_Donphan_Shocked.PNG
Ready to go!

72_One_Night_Slash._Bulldoze_slows_it_down._It_eats_a_Sitrus_Berry.png


Bulldoze actually does a lot, but of course this fucker has a Sitrus Berry. Because fuck you. Anyway, Lucky seems to take Night Slash fairly well.

73_Went_for_Torment_like_a_prick.png


Fucking Torment. At least Lucky managed to slow down this monster a bit. Maybe, next turn, she'll go first?

74_Survives_a_Headbutt._Just_die_already.png


Aaaaand it survives a Headbutt. Because of course it does. Just die already, will you? At least Lucky is faster now.

75_Finally_it_dies..png


Finally, it dies... Good job, Lucky.

Sadly, they're not. They're just from a Cyrus worshipping cult.

I... I was joking...

I actually did do the Underground sidequest, but I'm not showing that whole thing because that's boring.

Here's some highlights of the stuff I found!

125_Hmmm.png


There was actually a Sun Stone in this wall as well, but I found it too late.

126_HMMM.png


Why do I have a feeling that this thing is important?

127_Bingo.png


Welp, looks like I'm cursed to get a Cranidos! Which is not bad, just... Very fragile.

128_Making_a_few_adjustments_for_Hearthome_gym..png


Gonna be changing up the team again for the Hearthome gym! Gotta train 'em first, obviously.

129.png


Dawn's dad gave us some False Swipe TMs, what a nice man!

130_Next_time_I_do_Cycling_Road.png
