Legends say that you may find this elusive creature hiding in the screenshot section, roaming the Terribly Titled threads
While I am a little disappointed that Angie's battle was altered since I rather enjoyed the rage and challenge she gives me, I understand why others would appreciate the lower difficulty. Plus if this means less stress for the developers in the long run, there may be improvements in other areas of the game in return

Oh, new chapter. Nice, will comment asap
Damn man.
Does this joke never gets old to you?
Of course you'd put this up just when I was about to head off to bed. Eh, whatever, sleep's overrated.
...
...
......🙁
You forgot my replies...
There they are!
All is restored.
Sean is infallible once more.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Well that's genuinely horrifying.
Like when the mothers of your cousins stealthily compete about their kids, she opens with "Sovereign One is big into feet now"?
Jeeeeesus.
I only know this for a fact because in middle school someone was talking about a weirdly sexual thing and I asked my mother about it because I didn't know what it meant. Then as I'm trying to sleep I heard my mom call my GRANDMOTHER of all people and tell her about it while laughing her ass off.*
Oh well yeah I can see why she'd find that funny.
Reminds me of when my brother (I have two siblings) was 7 and in his usual pompous little shit manner said to my parents "You both think I'm stupid but I know that you had sex three times!"
It's stuff like that that makes parenting worth all the whining and diaper changing, I think.

Derogatory Trainer said:
OH.
Well that's great news. Usually there's some internal strife and one creator turns out to be a mal-adjusted psycho when it comes to creating fan-games.
Glad to see it's not the case here.
I've been following this fangame since it was announced eight years ago, it is my most looked forward to fangame because of how long I've waited for it (I didn't even know reborn existed back then). If they stopped making it... I WOULD KNOW.
Make sure to tell me when it's done then.
Hope it's good.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Would she have died otherwise if we hadn't spent time talking to her?
Or does Vivian head her off earlier than before?
??? I think we got our wires crossed here. I was basically saying there wouldn't have been time for you to pull out a racket since by the time Aelita noticed it was 2 seconds away from Katsu.
Oh.
Well let this be a lesson to never underestimate my powers facilitating stupid jokes.
I obviously moved at hypersonic speeds for a few seconds.

Derogatory Trainer said:
It was not a reference, no.
I was just being all anime about it.
Plus my power is REEEEAAALLL.
Well, that's a little disappointing. It had real Self Defense Rush vibes.
tenor.gif
Damn, I remember laughing at that joke too.
Feel like I missed an opportunity to throw random Japanese text into my picture instead of the stock comic sound effect I had.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Oh? You'll have to notify me when you start. I'm terrible for looking at other people's runs.
What game are you doing?
Well... I intended for it to be a secret but what the hell.
Renegade Platinum.
Oh man. Good luck with that.
I hear it's pretty hard going to Nuzlocke.

Though it'll probably be 2023 by the time I start putting it on this site because I'm a very slow writer and I don't like the idea of putting things on here when they aren't finished.
...
You tryna say something, punk!?
Saying that maybe I should have planned my Nuzlockes better and that's it's kinda sad that I've gained the most views yet still haven't actually finished a single run on this site yet?
Saying that I seem to be pushing my own regrets onto you so I can attack you for my own mistakes due to my ego refusing to admit I've made one?
Is THAT what you're trying to say, punk?!

Derogatory Trainer said:
She might beat Lance at least since Leon and him already fought once.
Well going by that same logic Cynthia should beat Iris since Iris already lost once to Ash... to be clear that's my arguament against Diantha winning, not Iris.
GOOD BECAUSE I'D HAVE KILLED YOU WHERE YOU STOOD FOR IT!
But my reasoning is that nobody is really invested in Lance all that much. Like Diantha isn't much better but she's probably got some simps supporting her.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Nahhh...it would be a bold move to get rid of Ash. We all know this franchise doesn't like making bold moves.
Ok, fair point. But tell me, what could Ash actually DO now? He's essentially achieved his goal, there really aren't anymore plotlines they could give him unless they pull a Digimon and reboot the series (which I REALLY don't want them to do).
Ash: "Whoa! Look at that strange new Pokemon, Pikachu! I wonder what it's called?"
Strange new Pokemon: "LEEEECHOOONK!!"
Generic Professor Character (Probably Oak): Ah. That's called a Lechonk, Ash. They're native to the...whatever the fuck the Scarlet&Violet region's name is!"

Ash: Whoaaa! I've never heard of THAT region before! C'mon, Pikachu! Let's fucking...GETTO DAZE or whatever!"
They don't really have to try very hard to justify it.
He went to Pokemon school in fucking Alola despite the fact he's been around the world and should know everything they could teach already.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Thanks for not considering doing the same for Nancy, any of my Pokemon, "Nim" or your own father.
QbLg6u7m.jpg

Nooooo...you go right ahead and ask the Goddesses of Time and Space to save your little lesbian friend from something I know is 100% curable since Nim is running around, instead of plucking those who died from just before their deaths.
a885KQFm.jpg

I'll just sit right here in the pool of blood that both I and my Pokemon have spilled from defending you.
Wouldn't want to interrupt this super important meeting after all.
Click to expand...
Well of course they can't do that, because the game would be over silly!
This is why we should kill the gods.
Why the fuck do we bother worshipping them if they don't fucking DO anything!?

... I had like ten different responses to this when I first got to this point and I can only think of one of them at the moment. That being that I'm quite positive they'd be singing a different tune if the single casualty was either of them.
Don't be so sure.
They poisoned their older sister, Griselda after all.
Can't be too sure how tight their familial bonds are.

Derogatory Trainer said:
So the people of those countries all DESERVE what's hypothetically coming to them for not reading this MASTERPIECE of a Nuzlocke that-

I still feel extremely safe knowing that that poll we took gave our locations... but at least I'll get to meet you so I guess that's a plus.
It'll be like that scene in the Prince of Egypt where the firstborn children would die if their door frame wasn't smeared in lambs blood.
I am your lambs blood.

Seem's Ceasar didn't hear your earlier rant about the blood of millions not affecting people.
It's more that he didn't have any choice in his horrible time as a Shadow Pokemon enslaved by Team Xen.
And he didn't have a human master during his time their either. He was owned by a cold blooded dildo shaped machine.

Derogatory Trainer said:
SLqfTPom.jpg

A very confusing plot-hole in a Mystery Dungeon game.
Why was it that time stopped when these things were removed from the area by Grovyle but restarted when they were brought to Temporal Tower?
What was the motivation behind hiding them across the world instead of just leaving them in Temporal Tower, where they did the job better?
Click to expand...
And here's my two cents on the matter, what's stopping Darkrai from attempting to destroy the tower a second time now? The Time gears are gone so there's nothing that could stop it again.
Like two fighting types, I imagine.
Darkrai's not exactly a tough Pokemon.
But I guess you can explain it away with that being a different universe where humans went extinct or were turned into Pokemon themselves.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Cats, Dogs or secret third option Dragons?
Dragons, and this doesn't even just apply to pokemon. I really like mythology.
Did you also have that Dragonology book with all the rubbable scales and fur in it?
...
Also congratulations.
Replying to this comment reminded me of a book I borrowed from the library over two decades and I can't remember anything but the scantest details about it and it's going to bother me for the rest of my life.
Something about blue...dwarves? Goblins? There was a mine...and dynamite...and the artwork was pretty cool...
And I can't remember if it was a Choose your own Adventure type book or not either.
AAAAAAUUUUGGGGHHHHH! YOU'VE RUINED MY LIIIIIFEEEE!!!

Derogatory Trainer said:
Accurate too. I'd remember someone if they were the only person I killed but millions of people?

Double stacking Derogatory Trainers can ONLY make me stronger.
What if all 50 of us combine into one god-like being?
What're Team Xen and Indriad gonna do THEN!?

And what was up with Crescent's Gothielle giving me a Nuzleaf for no reason back then?
Click to expand...
In V13 the Gothitelle was a boss you had to fight with shields and everything.
Good lord, Jan really went overboard with them for that ONE update, didn't he?
I feel like he and Pika's Scout would get along amazingly.
They'll be mortal enemies on sight with a blood feud between their descendants for generations.
Probably.

Derogatory Trainer said:
God I fucking hate comic book writers.
So how do you feel about "The Boys" or "Invincible"?
A good rule of thumb I live by is that anything with Seth Rogen's jewish weed huffing fingers in it is going to suck.
The Boys comic is edgy, gross and downright stupid a lot of the time.
Garth Ennis is clearly using it just to express his personal and weirdly obsessive hatred of superheroes.
The show is seemingly mostly the same but less gross and with the addition of modern day politics and it's constant whining about everything shoved into it.
Also, and I'm quoting this from a friend who fully watched the show:
"the boys have a falling out, then the boys come together to fight the bad guy, nothing is resolved, nobody is harmed for three seasons in a row"
...
Invincible is somewhat decent at least. Even the show (as long as Rogen stays as Allen the Alien's voice actor and doesn't get any chances to mess with the script or make what he thinks is "witty" commentary.)

Derogatory Trainer said:
q9ElLUim.jpg

She wanted to go fast...?
And her hair is blue...?
Hmmm...sounds...familiar...
Click to expand...
...
I promised myself I'd stop correcting you and I'm already going back on it.
Because Vivian's hair is purple.
Aelita coloured purple.
Past-Sean wrote this before he was corrected about it.
Also I'm now instating a new rule that anytime I see a hair colour, everyone is to automatically agree with me about it.

Hope you're there for Aelita when the time comes for her to inevitably become sensei.
My sweet tender lovin' will cure all her woes.
That's a Derogatory Guarantee!

Also I will go behind her back and threaten every single resident of Sheridan into being a supportive as they can.
They're so flaky that it needs to be done.

Meanwhile, in an alternate universe where Vitus/Indraid was a good guy... I'm too tired to edit something.
If only you were too tired to comment something.
Because this one was terrible.
Just downright awful.
Be ashamed of yourself.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I happen to be an expert on cheering Sheridan Senseis up!
jYQtTdum.jpg

Or leading them to an early grave...and cheering up their severed soul?
...
Look, I'm sure this one will go much better!
Click to expand...
Well... this will age poorly.
You'd be hard pressed to find a comment of mine that DIDN'T age poorly at this rate.
I will admit that I did try and look to see if there was a time travel grammar guide and while there is not, I did find a possibly handy rule of thumb. Use the tenses appropriate to where you are, unless you're talking about something you were or will be part, in which case you use your own perspective.
(for example if you were to land in 1942, you might say something like "the war will end in three years, I went to a memorial a while back, but I know I'll destroy it in my near future.) of course this adds some of the specifications I would use such as avoiding using numbers when talking about your own personal timeline to avoid extra confusion.
While that is very helpful of you...
I think I might just be annoying about it on purpose.
Like with Angie: "I kicked her ass in 50 years and I can do it again!"
Derogatory Trainer said:
Coming from literally any other god, like say, the goddess of Fire? That'd be an acceptable reason.

One of HER Time Gears.
So my suspicion is confirmed then.
She's 100% a Diagla in human form. At least we can cross that theory off the book.
Even if it was pretty obvious from the get-go.
These God-Complex wannabes ain’t the Creation Trio, they’re a bunch of fuckin juiced up princesses who had Garfutan Corporation Scientists shoving the Archetype up their bum till they turned into replicas. Coming straight at you from info gained in V12, not even 13. They’re pulling rules out of their arse and playing god when the player can find out that they’re as mortal as everyone else, born and raised in medieval society till some ancient scientists who had guns and robots while everyone else had spears and plate pulled them into a dimly lit room and juiced em up with that A-Grade Good Godly Shit.
...
Then why did Griselda turn into a Giratina? Or why does Timpea even have Time Gears to hand out?
I thought that these were the actual POKEMON turned into women by the Garufans and then left alone in the world to LARP for Garufan Reality TV or something.
Like why else do they have Groudon and Kyogre locked in jail cells?
So they can eventually turn them into sexy gijinka women because that's apparently what the Garufans were into.
The sick freaks.

If it isn’t obvious I hate these actual self-rightous pricks who would casually erase everyone from existence to a prove a point that was just as easily told. They’re a living plot-hole, since they only suspect Team Xen. They don’t even know for sure despite claiming to be the Gods of Reality itself. If you can beat up Griselda you can sure as shit beat them up as well.
Well...IS it Team Xen that want to start Storm-9?
Because we STILL don't have any confirmation on what they fucking want even this far into the game.
Or is it the will of Indriad or something?
Derogatory Trainer said:
Not I.
I don't tend to think about those kind of things before I say them.
I have a very pure hearted mind and soul you see.
Says the guy constantly fantasizing about tying girls up and doing perverted things to women he hates?
Yes.
Says I.
MR.INNOCENT!

How is she supposed to do that?
She's the only one that seems to rationally think things out in that group.
But she probably couldn't stop them either.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Of course it is.
Or are you going to tell me that there are siblings in japan ARE related by blood and not some overly convenient re-marriage or adoption?
Impossible.
You really think there are no blood-related siblings in hentai?
Eugh.
I don't actually read hentai myself.
I thought that was where the "Help me, Step-bro" meme came from?

Derogatory Trainer said:
Fully chocolate ANYTHING is garbage.
If it is a vanilla with chocolate chips that's okay. Or a chocolate bar with a biscuit inside.
But PURE chocolate is rancid.
sqr(HEATHEN) [Heathen squared]
Pathetic.
You didn't even bother going into google and copy-pasting the squared symbol for your rebuttal.
I should be Heathen²

Derogatory Trainer said:
I may have innocently appropriated some goods and Pokemon at times but those were all for the good of the region!
Which could HARDLY be considered stealing.
Stealing, even for the greater good, is still stealing.
Not if the person you're stealing from is dead!
Then it's just recycling.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Run's cancelled.
Go home.
You really gonna leave Rose, Ceaser, Chiller and the others behind?
No. And you've used this argument before.
I won't be leaving them behind, I'll be leaving YOU lot behind.
I'll still play the game by myself but with no audience, no reaction shots, no face cramps from smiling...
It'll be GREAT.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Erin comes pretty close at times with her outfits.
Does she? I've seen her outfits, I just don't remember them ever showing up in-game.
Her first and her latest outfits show a lot of skin.
It's that TERRIBLE middle one that I dislike.
Like wow, so it was fine for Venam to go to an icy hellscape in naught but a tank top and skirt but Erin gets pants and a jacket?
Clearly more of Jan's Erin favouritism at work.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Kinda odd that the bookworm girl shows the most skin out of the entire cast bar maybe Valarie.
Who's whole gimmick is "I like swim".
Also "Prevent the rest of the gang (Saki) from doing stupid"
When does she do that?
She's got no real control over Saki because Saki can just build a giant robot and ignore her and Adam doesn't fucking DO anything.

Derogatory Trainer said:
"I will respect and follow you because you keep me on a VERY loose leash and are almost as terrible as I am."
More the "Villain complements and praises the hero" but ok.
Chiller?
A Villain?
Impossible. He's on MY side.
And I'm definitely the good guy.

Derogatory Trainer said:
ARE YOU EVEN HUMAN, NO-NAME!?
YOU COULD BE AN A.I. SENT TO MONITOR ME IN CASE I ACTUALLY RALLY PEOPLE TO MY ROBOT KILLING CAUSE!
You really think an AI as dumb as me would be the one sent to monitor you?
I think that is exactly what they'd do.
They'd have me thinking "Wow, there's no way this dumbass is a hyper advanced AI" but they underestimated my paranoia for the last time!
I shall implant a virus into every following chapter to hopefully infect and destroy you.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Sure, they're extremely beautiful in a disgustingly divine sort of way...
And their hair DOES appear to be as silky as they bragged to Melia...

Do not get horny for the enemy.
They've got an allure up that entices weaker minds.
That's my theory on how they get people to work with them despite a complete and utter lack of any real charisma.
Luckily I was able to realise it before it was too late and resisted it with my amazing intellect.
...
That is no joke what this scene meant.

Falling ON TOP of the bomb seems counterproductive. You resurrect from the blast then what? You're still stuck in an irradiated hellscape.
Congratulations.
You read too much into a movie reference.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Nooooo...you go right ahead and ask the Goddesses of Time and Space to save your little lesbian friend from something I know is 100% curable since Nim is running around,
How do you know (at this stage of the game) that the stoning is curable?
Crescent instantly cured Nim on Terajuma, remember?
It was right after Amber's Gym battle.

Derogatory Trainer said:
FUCK THE GODS. I AND MANKIND WILL BE FREE!
Calm down, Grand Karcist Ion.
My first decree as a free man will be to (ironically) put No-Name in chains for making what I 100% know is a SCP reference again.

You leave my Pokemon's spelling alone!
It's a miracle that they even got that close!

fetchimage

It's so I can kill Venam AND end the world!
It's a win-win situation!

But really, it's just the fucking brakes. Why would a switch ON the trolley change the tracks?
Why make the choice at all when you can just STOP the trolley?
Or in Interceptor terms, defy fate?
Derogatory Trainer said:
MAYBE IF MY POKEMON MADE ME A NICE "THANK YOU FOR BEING OUR TRAINER" CARD ONCE IN A WHILE I WOULDN'T BE SO PRONE TO GENOCIDAL THOUGHTS!
Please explain the relationship between those two factors.
If I'm not loved, then I'll be feared.
Or in a less dramatic sense, I'm still mad about Zira's shit card.

Hey, it worked.
Maybe magic isn't a female only sport?
Considering the player can recite working Garufa incantations, yeah.
Also:
King Iesiel. The Blood-magic using, pokemon sacrificing desert king.
Probably only because of Adrest the Golden sitting in my appendix or whatever.
Could Iesiel do Karen like magic where she used spells or was he just blood rituals and Crests only?
Like an Enchanter to her Spellcaster?
Derogatory Trainer said:
God, that's lonely.
Are we your only friends, Erin?
Unless you count the Kimono girls, yes.
Souta and Erin only ever mention them once in this whole game so I don't think so?
Plus they're all older than her and in a club she can't or won't join so there's another barrier between them.

But unfortunately for me, Past-Sean seemed to disagree.
This seems to happen a lot.
We Seans are an argumentative sort.
Even to ourselves.

Derogatory Trainer said:
This game was never normal.
The Dexoy attack on the boat and fighting a Dimensional Demon before the 1st gym didn't tick you off?
That was honestly tame compared to the stuff I deal with now.
Like the Deoxys clones isn't THAT weird a concept for a Pokemon fan-game.
The Dimensional Demon was a bit out there though.

Derogatory Trainer said:
The character with the weirdest creation is given one of the most normal names.
So, Sean.
...
This would be well played but you thought my name was weird in the first place so it cancels out.

Derogatory Trainer said:
In fact, why has nobody really mentioned Indriad to Melia at all?
Why is her possible father/ancestor a Sean&Venam villain of all fucking things?
I'm not even sure Jan knows the answer to that. Or maybe the devs wanted Indriad to be a reveal for Melia specifically.
Missed a MASSIVE opportunity for Indriad to kill Jenner then.
They could have done a Darth Vader reveal with it.
Now it's just going to be "Oh yeah, we know".
Literally nobody will be shocked by the reveal.

Derogatory Trainer said:
We're roughly 50 years or so in the past but you don't look any younger than when we met you in the future.
The official art portrays Anju as younger but definitely not as young as however many years ago the calamity happened.
Does it?
The only change I can see is she looks more sinister but that's it.

Derogatory Trainer said:
(Plus I don't actually have any post-Aevium memories but I'm not telling them that)
You mean PRE-Aevium memories?
How petty of you to change a word in a quote just so you can make fun of me.
I never said post-Aevium in the actual chapter.
I'm disappointed in you, No-Name.

Rose participating probably makes this more soul-crushing for you.
It's not so bad.
They're all female Pokemon so I automatically disregard what they say as a rule anyway.

That is literally how most conspiracy theorists think, so you're right.
True but only the retarded ones.
I'm about to go on a rant here so buckle up.

The thing you have to know about conspiracy theories is that the wacky nonsense ones are specifically there so they can have brain-dead retards believe in them which discredits the ones that are ACTUALLY true.
Did you know the CIA has had a working heart attack gun since the 70s? That was a crackpot conspiracy theory back then. What do you think they have now, 50 years later?
Or that the NSA started the whole Vietnam War by inventing a fake attack that never happened so they could "retaliate"?
And more recently, Jeffery Epstein's "suicide" where both his guards fell asleep, his cellmate was removed and both of the cameras facing in his cell broke on the same day?
The best way to figure out some of the truth from the bullshit is check who it benefits.
If it doesn't really benefit anybody, then it's probably bullshit.
Who benefits from the Earth being flat? Nobody. Who benefits from all the elites in society secretly being lizard men? Nobody.
But who benefits from the examples I gave a few sentences above?
The CIA gets to avoid any autopsy reports giving them away, the military contractors get their big bucks and Epstein's is self-explanatory.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
....Didn't you call Cella "Eldest" in this chapter?
Nnnno?
And this isn't like the joke from earlier in this reply where I changed the words to make you look insane.
I specifically made sure I didn't so this joke would work.

So are there two secret members of this group based around Regieleki and Regidrago? Like Sailor Uranus and Sailor Jupiter?

... So does this make you Tuxedo Mask?
Why does this fit so well?
  • Introduced in the protag's first mission (Goldenwood Forest)
  • Mysterious past with no memories
  • Dead parents
  • Main objective to find out who the fuck they are
  • Exists solely to be a last-minute bail-out for the heroes
  • Can appear/disappear mysteriously
While I dislike that you pointed out that Melia was the protagonist (what with Tuxedo Mask was Sailor Moon's love interest), this was very accurate with only some slight context differences.
Especially when you consider the Interceptor stuff.
The Core that they refer to later in the game is the planet's core, right?
And you mentioned I can't leave Earth or I'll die, right?
Very interesting that Tuxedo Mask is the equivalent of Sailor Earth, isn't it?
...
Also one addition I'd make is that I'm hanging out with girls a LOT younger than me just like he was.
Like damn.

In my exalted opinion, politicians are worth less than a piss in the wind and will change directions just as quickly.
If something positive actually gets achieved then good for you.
Well they've been in power less than a month and they've increased the minimum wage, started setting up an Independant Committee Against Corruption like the former government said they'd do for a decade and didn't, and seized control of the power companies because they were refusing to put out enough power to keep everyone alive through winter without jacking up the prices. So yanno I'll take it.
Well like I said, good for you.
Wish we had that here instead of the same shit painted a different colour.
Hope it works out in the end and it isn't revealed he was secretly Super Hitler in disguise and now you're all in his thrall forever.

And unfortunately like any ideal Bond villain, you'll lose to the idealized form of masculinity due to being consumed by your own hubris or malice or whatever...
And then you die.
Possibly in a very ironic way.
And the movie title will be something like Requiem for Mercury or 800 Degrees of Death.
I could never be a Bond villain. I don't have a fucked up face!
Double Twist!
You wear prosthetics to pretend that you have one so you can have either a freudian excuse for your actions or just to be allowed access to the Evil Villian club.

Derogatory Trainer said:
They should really start improving the crapmons already. Jan's crests are a good idea in that regard.
Must admit I'd like to see more lousy mons getting a proper boost. Like SwSh boosted a few sets of stats here and there but it's still a pathetic excuse for balance. It's okay to make some Pokemon better than others but they should all be at least passably viable!
It's the main reason I dislike regional form evolutions.
Like the original ones are even shittier now since they can't evolve into their better form.
The only exception is Ursaring.
Now you can have a Guts boosted Facade using, killing machine when holding an Eviolite.
AND MINE JUST RECENTLY DIED.
FUCKING TYPICAL.

Derogatory Trainer said:
What an odd college course where WINE-TASTING is one of the units there.
Haha "a whiff of tarmac" how the fuck would a wine even get that? Did someone spill it outside and hastily scooped it back in the bottle?
It was a hospitality course, so yeah it was odd but also most of it was interesting.
According to the teacher of said unit it means it's supposed to smell a bit like tarmac on a hot summer's day but I don't want to drink anything that smells like that thanks!
Huh. I suppose that would be useful for them to know. Just thought it was more of an "on-the-job" thing to learn.
Yeah, I'm the same.
Like sure I like the smell of petrol but I certainly wouldn't drink anything that smelled of it.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Erin seems to be becoming the dark horse of this contest though.
IF she softens up a bit.
Erin is admittedly more tolerable than most of the characters, if she acted a bit less tsundere I would probably even like her.
Nah I wouldn't call her a tsundere juuuuust yet.
She's a miserable little shit that actually happens to have a working brain and is still adjusting to actually having friends right now.
Melia will infect her with friendship eventually like the virus she is.

Derogatory Trainer said:
And I can't believe that this is the first I've heard about a second one even existing.

Haha. He's got impressive lung control though.
I mean screaming for TWO hours straight? Kid should be an opera singer.

Well nobody can say you didn't see it coming.
Derogatory Trainer said:
Also it's just been announced that Steven's going against Ash in the first round so RIP Metagross.
Oh come ON. It's bullshit that Ash is even there and it's even more bullshit that he'll no doubt make it almost to the end. (If he makes it to the actual end he'll have to stop being the protagonist after all.)
Hey now, when you think about it Ash technically has more experience than all the others since he travelled around the world doing all that heroic nonsense.
He only seems weaker because Gary implanted the poisonous idea in his head to start from scratch every new region.
(Which I believe was Gary's plan the whole time)

Derogatory Trainer said:
Coming from literally any other god, like say, the goddess of Fire? That'd be an acceptable reason.
But from the two goddesses who control the two cosmic powers that make being late impossible?
...No. No it's not. Time is a very real natural force that can be and IS measured! IT IS A BUILDING BLOCK OF REALITY. EVEN DEVIL SURVIVOR 2: RECORD BREAKER MADE IT ONE OF THE FOUR FORCES THAT CONTROL ALL OF EXISTENCE.
Yeah my response to hearing that is the very eloquent "So what?"
I'm still going to expire in 40-50 years so don't really care if it's real or not.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Because the only way I want to go back is on top of a falling nuclear bomb.
Both a classy reference and an entirely appropriate reaction to that conga line of pure bullshit!
Thank you.
I actually disliked the film though. I found the guy's erratic spasms in the wheelchair annoying and I genuinely wanted to punch him for it.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I don't like the insinuation that the mission was a success all thanks to Melia either.
I seem to recall Melia being the reason you ended up in the fucking lava so no that's not at all cool.
No...?
Geara is the one that pushed me in.

I was only joking about Melia's post-win taunting giving them the power to retaliate because it's one of those constantly repeating scenes in this game.
Like how every arc ending involves someone bursting in after the climactic battle and steal all the actual glory of stopping the bad guy.
The main reason I ended up in lava is because Jan wrote this game without actually considering the Pokemon/was limited by the system.
Like in reality, there'd be no reason for us to recall our Pokemon after beating the enemy so they can attack us themselves but Jan can't really code every single Pokemon into the scenes so this is what we're stuck with.

Whelp they certainly act like the Greek gods.
Derogatory Trainer said:
All they seem to do is be dicks and fuck everything not nailed down.
Hey now... Only Zeus went on random rape holidays. That's why Hera was always trying to castrate him, being Goddess of Marriage and all...
I'm sure there's a wide variety of cases when the other gods did that and worse.
Didn't Hera also drive Hercules insane like twice and made him accidentally kill his family?
I think the worst part about the whole thing is that they always just got away with their shit and suffered no real comeuppance.

...*side eyes so intense they could slay an elephant*
Literally the MOST suspicious words they could have used.
I would even have taken "Capos of a Mafia family" over this.

Derogatory Trainer said:
They mean in-game time, viewers.
I'm Future Sean and I have no fucking clue who it is.
If it turns out to be Melia you'll be able to hear our screams from Mars.
That'd be a twist.
I still believe that the Melia we have now isn't the original one that got kidnapped back in time. That one became Madame X.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Personally, I think we could do without a good two billion off our current world population until we can stabilize this shit better.
There were only five billion around when I was born and two billion when my grandmother was born, you know.
That's a means the population increased by three billion for 60 years and then another three billion more in less than 30.
Will it be another three in 15 years?
It's genuinely getting out of hand.
Legitimately so many of our problems could be solved if the population would drop back down to about 5-6 billion. Things were crowded but not as actively fucked as they are now...
Hard to justify it though.
Like nobody will support it if we do it randomly and people will accuse us of whatever-ism if we pick a specific part of the world or country.
So we've got no choice but to pity our descendants for the actions of our forefathers.
Woohoo.

You fucking coward. Not to mention void of intellectual thought. Anyone who went through primary school knows that fucking thought experiment.
She feels guilty because she knows she'd picked loved ones like a normal non-Erin person would.
She pretty much answers the question then and there.
Also what fucking primary school did you go to that teaches THAT?
"Hey kids, would you rather kill your mommy and daddy or FIFTY GAZILLION PEOPLE!?!?"

Oh nonononono, I have never once heard the phrase 'greater good' being used by someone who wasn't planning on murdering a whole lot of people! Shit man, they didn't even use that phrase in God Eater 3 when telling an entire class of people who were essentially SLAVES that they had to die, and while monstrous the sacrifice of the AGEs would legitimately save the entire human race! (God Eater is so very anime and yet right now my hand itches for a God Arc to shove through these bitches faces, see how they like being devoured.)
That being said, we both agreed that we'd have to kill a couple of billion to fix most of the world's problems (i.e. the greater good) so it's a very easy trap to fall into.
Oh this is going to end badly for us.
Nahhh...
Just me.
...
And maybe Melia.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Seems like someone asking if you'd kill your loved ones for the "greater good" would elevate your heart-rate pretty fucking quickly.
Especially if that someone is a goddess tasked with "saving" the world by any means.
Her hypothetical is almost guaranteed not to stay as one.
Jesus Christ yeah, someone asks a question like that I'd fucking stop to scream from anxiety for a bit.
(And for reference, my answer obviously depends on who is being sacrificed and whether I'd get to pick the million people dying. Because honestly if I could choose the million I'd help all the people with end-stage cancer have a fast and merciful death. If the one was someone I care about then fuck the million, if the one is Elon Musk then let him burn.)
Very true. Pretty much anybody's answer is really dependant on the circumstances.
It isn't really a fair question either since "killing your loved ones" means killing ALL of them, whereas the millions of people can be easily replaced since there's way more humans you don't know to go around.
Either way, the purpose of this was to manipulate Melia so she'd learn the lesson that they wanted her to learn.
You'll see in later chapters.

God forbid Erin actually consider her answer or have thought about a complicated situation, you little brat!
Please remember that Aelita is a Fighting type trainer.
That should explain everything.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Well there was a vast web of people who are somewhat at fault for us going down to that chamber like Crawli, Valerie, Melia, Geara, Zetta, Spacea, Timpea, Madelis, Amber, Eldest...
And someday they will all feel your wrath.
Which is coincidentally the name of my penis.
...
Well not really.
I never got why some people do that with body parts.
My body parts are me, they're collectively called "Sean" they aren't individuals.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I know this is the second time I've asked this today alone, but are we actually your only friends, Erin?
...Okay asshole tendencies and extreme need to GTFO from her family is making more sense. Fuck me, did that asshole actually keep you locked up until he kicked you out?!
Nope.
Bullying, remember?
It seemed pretty bad for her but I have trouble relating to it because I was never the type to curl up and take it like she was.
Any attempt ended up in a fight, then we get sent to the principal and then it usually ended up with us having a sort of mutual respect for each other.
Maybe because she was a girl? I think it works differently for them but I went to an all boy's school so I dunno.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I would have been SO content with them just cutely squawking their names at me instead...
Lies, you'd never have gotten to talk to Rose then and you know you couldn't bear that.
I would have been completely fine with the usual way trainers communicate with their Pokemon where they have a kinship and understanding that goes beyond words.
But sadly, that's not as funny for you guys at home.

Derogatory Trainer said:
If ever found someone I deemed worthy of following (good luck there) having a hard time, I wouldn't just fucking mope and abandon them at first chance.
This. If someone actually proves themself worth my loyalty, you bet I'm going to actually try to, you know, HELP THEM.
Exactly.
It's the main reason I'm going to explicitly threaten every Sheridan resident behind Aelita's back when she becomes Sensei.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Wait a minute, so you KNEW Anastasia was hiding behind those trees when Katsu went off on her "I've been such a bad parent" rant?
Wow Vivian, even though you're going through some shit that is still unforgivably fucked up.
Eh. It's forgivable enough.
Because I do not care about Anastasia.
No matter how innocent she is right now...she STILL grows up to consider Crawli being stronger than me.
Which will be made a cardinal sin when I am God-Champion-On-High of Aevium.
Lol, I don't like the way this arc is executed. It's way too compressed and really pisses me off with how much it blueballs us before Fly. Also sucks kinda because even though Melia is, obviously, our bestie 4ever she does some extremely Melia things in it.
I don't like it that much either because it seems a bit contrived.
Like the question was "would you sacrifice a million people or the ones you loved" not "would you sacrifice the entire world for a woman you just met yesterday."
It's fucking ridiculous.

Cryptic self-sacrificial bullshit Vivian that somehow simultaneously is a callous ass is kind of great.
I genuinely feel bad for Vivian though. Like damn. What a shit choice to make.
And what makes it even WORSE is that she got the exact information on how to do the ritual from her alleged friends. That raises a few questions, doesn't it?

Spacea and Tiempa are that magnified to the fiftieth power. It's a mess but at least the next time they show up there is a non-zero chance that we get a battle with them and kick their ass to high hell.
These two I don't feel bad for and will enjoy using them as a footstool.
Update-wise the next sections are super duper dumb so take your time with it.
Dumb but oh so very juicy with content to complain about!

Garufans hated Pokemon but they realised that some Pokemon have powers too good to pass up so they turned them into people.
That's my theory anyway.
And my joke theory is that they wanted to fuck Pokemon but not be judged for it like they rightfully should.

This coming from the goddess who rules over time?!
What the FUCK is even the point of you then?
y-y know I had this entire rant on how time being a social construct shows how fragile humans are but then I just realized that line coming from a being who controls time, it probably is referring to how we measure time in seconds, minutes and hours, not LITERALLY the passage of time itself and the essence of what time is.
Or it's just a bad throwaway line so both rants are useless.
In the end, Timpea was probably just trying to be funny to relate to the mortals but failing because she's definitely not one.
Derogatory Trainer said:
Hello!
I know what you did to your older sister!
And I'm sure if either of you could hear me say that, you'd actually speak to me directly during this meeting.
So were just saying it's canon now that the Crreation Trio are all female? because I dunno, I've seen giratina gjinkas by accident (long story short I was looking up what the word gjinka even meant and found a lot of legendary ones) usually looks non-binary. (or edgy male but eh, the non-binary ones always seemed more in line with what giratina is- it rules over antimatter)
It's canon in this game and Nuzlocke at least?
Kinda weird that Palkia isn't a boy what with the whole penis body shape.
But that could just be this game and it's busload of women characters compared to the mini-van of male ones.
...
Although all of them being female is making that joke theory above look a LOT more believable now...

Derogatory Trainer said:
Didn't one of these bitches teleport us to Terajuma?
Shouldn't they know about all the intermittent stuff?
Your implying a god actually cares about what puny mortals do when they aren't directly in their vision- Greek Gods rarely did. why should pokegods?
Because we couldn't enslave the Greek ones with two dollar balls.
And I've still got that Master Ball in my back pocket so I could feasibly capture one of them the moment they transform into their true form to kill us or whatever.

Derogatory Trainer said:
This game ALREADY makes the player pretty much obsolete with how Pokemon battles barely matter.
If it started doing shit like that, it'd be the final nail in the coffin.
I SERIOUSLY despise that. Like why is this EVEN A POKEMON GAME WHEN THE CORE MECHANICS OF THE SERIES ONLY LETS THE BADDIES LOOK EVEN MORE INSANELY CHEAP?! (Read: If your going to make a pokemon fan game make the pokemon battles actually mean something. otherwise just...make some random superpower game. )
It's a Pokemon game with a JRPG plot and Jan was inspired by Reborn too.
Like I get not using Pokemon in cutscenes since it'd be impossible for the program to understand which Pokemon the player is even using but having every major climactic battle end up with the bad guys getting away or some magic woman/creature bursting in and acting like their presence was necessary for victory is too fucking much.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Fucking gods.
Especially the Greek ones.
What is up with them never doing anything themselves and always foisting it off on some demigod?
All they seem to do is be dicks and fuck everything not nailed down.
There are like 3 major gods (um, of the top 12) that really don't apply to this and that's Athena cause shes the SMART one, Artemis because she literally is just a huntress who's got a god powers, and Hestia because she represents the hearth, home and familial bonds- plus she usually shows up as an old lady in a cloak or a young child.
I think Hestia was the ONLY one not to be an evil monster.
Athena cursed Medusa into being a snake monster because Posiden raped her and Artemis turned a man into a deer for accidentally seeing her naked and set his own dogs to rip him apart.

I'm not going to let them keep their powers even for my own usage, that's just stupid and asking to be sent into Pre-History.

(Seriously if you know what im referring too please tell me,it only appears for like a few seconds after an aelita fight but it was part of the reason why I stopped watching that lp and am only reading THIS because you legit make this game fun to read)
Well this was already answered so I don't have much to reply to here.
It is weird that she has Goldern Girl Garments every time she transforms but it's not that impressive compared to her other powers.

So fuck the other countries.
They probably wouldn't even notice and I certainly won't care.
Seconded. It's not QUITE as bad here (I think thats about 0.033% of the populace here which is honestly really small) but like, I had this secret desire that COVID would cut down on a massive number of people. The world CANNOT sustain so many people.

I actually have to wonder if their human form decreases their powers at all, and if it DOES, would that affect the Red Chain's ability to control them? food for thought. (that is literally the only reason I can see them going gjinka- the Red Chain is less effective on that form)
If anything wouldn't it be more effective since they don't have as much power to resist it as they would in their Pokemon form?
Maybe they really panicked when Pokeballs were invented? And are using the human form as a neat little loophole since Pokeballs don't work on humans?
Granted that would actually be clever so it's very unlikely.

The whole lack of emotions in shadow pokemon is part of the reason I'm reluctant to play this, Reborn, or the Orre games.
the bigger reason is this and reborn I haven't figured out how to actually RUN them and the orre games are expensive as fuck, the consoles are hard to buy, and it's damn hard to emulate either.
I just made them silent machines that I point at enemies until I purified them.
Surely there must be SOME good emulator for GameCube out there? It came out 18 years ago for crying out loud!

Why did I end up with TWO crazy time people in my comment section?

Derogatory Trainer said:
It's pretty self-explanatory, Nova.
nnwLovOm.jpg

Oh.
Well the best theory I can come up with is I've got something I call "Cartoon Strength"
Where I'm exactly as strong or durable as I need to be for a slapstick joke to work.
Like if someone dropped a piano on me, instead of being dead or crippled, I'd be concussed and have the piano keys where my teeth usually are.

Yeah, you're probably better off going with the flow like most of the others.
This might sound hypocritical but dwelling TOO much on these jokes will drive you into an early grave.

This is a little too on the nose since I read the chapters where Luffy unlocks Gear five and it's cartoon physics abilities just 3 days ago....
Well I don't follow One Piece at all but to me it always seemed like a cartoony manga anyways...
Derogatory Trainer said:
Ah the classic Crescent archetype.
That shared aloofness they have makes me all the more sure she's the Cresselia gijinka.
I kinda feel like she's the darkrai one for the twist factor.
Naaahh. That's the Puppet Master.
Derogatory Trainer said:
I didn't forget.
I just assumed you were already here.
It's not like I can see when we fade to black.
ok MAYBE Erin is the Darkrai gjinka but that would be such a cop out that-
.....
...Jan would do it.
Erin is definitely not a Darkrai gijinka, I can tell you that much.
She and everyone else is just a Stand user that has the FADE 2 BLACK Stand where you can move to any location you want instantly but you can't see yourself do it.

Unless of course you ask yourself philosophical questions like that in your spare time.

I thought it was obvious.
I don't know about that.
Don't pretty girls have lots of friends?
And Erin is a pretty girl who's ALSO a nerd.
There should be two or three other nerds following her around like she's their idol.

Cool, Sean's emo daughter is becoming less emo and more relaxed (You raised her from an egg iirc, so....)
She was never an emo.
Staraptors just naturally look like `'em.
But yes, I know she is.
I traded Caesar's unholy ghost child for her after all.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Kind of irritating that nobody in-game actually asked me for my answer though.
I wonder if Jan just didn't have the balls to let the player canonically state that they're okay with massacring more than a billion people?

Maybe when both Reborn and Rejuvenation are over we can fight the two Seans to see which one is best?

My money's on me.
Click to expand...
I'm assuming you mean Rejuvination-version of yourself. Also I do too if only because your...."main" team in this game happens to be a lot more varied and harder to take down.
Er. No I wasn't actually being specific.
The joke was that they're both me so saying "My money's on me" is completely redundant.
Reborn Sean never got as far as Rejuvenation Sean. Plus I was young back then and tended to just train my favourites instead of everyone in the box.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Carnage is actually a good fighter.
hBMEDHT.jpg

God they're going to be so good when I finally get them.
Tenacious Bee with Adaptability, High Speed, and High Attack are a recipe for destruction.
It's pretty frail but that's what Adaptability boosted STAB U-Turn is for!
ji07zK4.jpg

Mega-Heracross is a beast stat-wise and will certainly be a boon to the team.
I'm just not that fond of Skill Link as an ability for it.
The only STAB moves you can give it to take advantage of that are Arm Thrust and Pin Missile.
Plus one of Skill Link's main uses (King's Rock flinching) can't be used due to him needing to hold a Mega-Stone.

Huge Power and the rare Steel/Fairy typing is pretty baller.
It's rather slow though but it's defences are good and Sucker Punch can help out with that.

Huh.....ok that's actually really cool and I honestly cannot wait to see this in action for all 3 of them.
Will they make it thoooouuughhhh?

Yes.

First I think we need a part of the game where I save Christmas.
Or let's be honest, where I steal Christmas, have my heart grow three sizes and then save it.

Oh god, it's almost scary how well it would fit.
We've even got the doe-eyed blonde girl ready to go!

Pffttt....Sean is the Grinch, ok.
Well it's not like that story has many other characters to choose from, does it?
The Grinch just happens to fit my personality the best.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Is there a god, or let's be realistic (Rejuvilistic?) here, goddess of fate in this game too?
Is there a Pokemon that rules over fate?
I imagine it has a woolly red coat that it makes into balls of yarn.
And that's where Destiny Knots come from.
Ok so I had a feeling there actually was like a pokemon that could control fate but nope, all I got was some fan-mon based on the 3 fate sisters of greek myth and beehenyem for some reason (yes I know I spelt that wrong but I cannot stand that pokemon)
Nah. They haven't done that yet.
We'd know if they did because it'd definitely be a legendary with how much Japanese love the whole "Chosen One" trope.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Well that was all very unnecessary.
I see Angie inherited the showoffsmanship from this half then.
Chuckle I thought it was ok.
I think Arceus demands his followers be overdramatic.
It'd explain a lot about the villains in both this and Reborn.

Derogatory Trainer said:
God I hope we're in the timeline where I didn't hurl the bomb at Melia's face.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Speaking of traumatic incidents, wasn't Aelita actually tortured?
Seems like she got over that a bit too easy.
There should probably be a throwaway line somewhere in this that she doesn't like Electric types now because of it.
Thinking of a certain Hospital of Hope and another pinkette rn.....
There's no WAY Lavenders hair is fucking pink.
Also Isha doesn't torture people.
He cures cancer, how could anyone who does that be considered a bad guy, huh?

...D-do you mean pre-Aevium memories? because otherwise this statement makes no sense, I was so confused until I thought that you might have mixed the two up.
That's crazy.
Both you and No-Name are crazy and I'm calling the asylum to drag you off before you can say anything else crazy like "Help! Sean is trying to gaslight us into believing he didn't make a mistake!"

Who cursed me with this power?
I would have been SO content with them just cutely squawking their names at me instead...

Derogatory Trainer said:
Also was I able to read minds back in the past? How'd I know what she said in brackets?
Have I literally always been able to do that or is (insert words here) supposed to indicate someone talking under their breath?
I think it's meant to imply that, yes? Because there's one line from....Blacksteeple iirc that if a certain character didn't hear a few later conversations couldn't exist. I'm blanking on what line because it been like 2 years.
In hindsight, I seem to have the most superpowers out of the entire cast.
They're all just extremely situational or border-line useless.

I'm just thinking about a different scene with the same context now and blushing quite badly!
Honestly, if it was actually me there, I wouldn't hide behind the pillar.
I'd be extremely quiet, take off my shoes and dip my feet in the pool and wait until she noticed me and then be super casual about it.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I'm fond of my irl friends too but I wouldn't say I loved them.

And I've never really had someone I'd call my best friend either, which is apparently weird?
But the person who told me that has multiple "best" friends based on the places she frequents so it's not really worth taking her opinion on anything.

And really, if I've gone and sacrificed my life for someone, I still don't have any guarantee that the sacrifice actually did anything.

Cured strips of dried meat.
A bit like beef jerky but without all the sugar additives in them.

Oh well thank god for that.
The two polearms sounds sick though. Like one of those broken Dark Souls builds.
I've never played Etrian Odyssey. Closest I've come was that Persona 3/4 version that came out years ago.
What is the appeal of the series?
It's based on old-school dungeon crawlers like Wizardy, but with a few modern updates so you don't bang your head on the ground. You make your own maps on the bottom screen, it's actually a really challenging series (but it's also fair. It's less WTF HOW DO I BEAT THIS and fake difficulty- besides one game but thats just inflated hp- and more "ok so I messed up here, THIS TIME I'll go about it a different way/ ok now I know what to expect, I can prepare for it with these, and you get to make your entire party via a character and class creation. Honestly It's really, really fun.
Oh hang on a second...I think I DID play one of these games for like the DS! It came on one of those illegal R4 cards that were going around!
Yeah I never got into it. I didn't mind the map stuff but I preferred being able to see my characters during battle.
Plus I think I was more obsessed with Custom Robo Arena and Rune Factory 2 on that cart anyway.

Nah. The joke is that it won't.
After all the sinister build up, I'll just get a sweet mech to pilot.
.....I'll take that too. I had the same thing with my Pyet-A. (Granblue fantasy related)
I don't know what that is...but okay.
I've heard then name before but I thought it was some regular ol' JRPG and not a mech thing.
It got an anime like 6 or 7 years ago that I also didn't watch.
Hell I don't even know why the fuck I'm still commenting on this comment.

(I'm an OKAY person, I'll admit that much at least. I'm no paragon by any means.)

I have nothing incredibly disturbing hidden in my basement, I can assure you of that much.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Was it with an ACTUAL friend or just someone who was a friend of a friend?
Because the latter is very common, I imagine.
actual friend. As an introvert, I tend to shut down when I can' t think of what to say socially.
Oh.
What I usually do in that situation is just put on a serene and comfortable expression so whoever I'm with thinks that I don't find the situation awkward. And if they say something I respond with with a higher pitched "Hmmm?" like I wasn't really worried about anything at all.
...
The more I explain this the more I sound like I'm an alien pretending to be human, doesn't it?
B-but that would be ridiculous! I'd need a spaceship for one thing and where would I store that out of people's sight?
My basement?
Impossible.

Take that.

Why not just change your name then?
Pfft, wait you seriously thought- No, Paradox is a TITLE. Roxy is my name, Paradox is just the title I have to use as one of the middle tier managers of fixing and altering paradoxes across the multiverse.

Why not just change your TITLE then?
To like Gardener Roxy or Post Office Worker Roxy?

Oh good you've finally gotten some food in you.
Not a fan of bell peppers myself though. Can't really get much of a taste off of them.
I DO like salt though. I eat bilitong and peanuts as a snack after all.
Eh, I mean I can't find much flavor alone but if you put them WITH something or cook them so theres an outer black shell (that you take off mind you) they have a mild savory-sweet flavor.
also yay someone else likes salty food. you have no idea how rare that is.
I see...I usually just slice them and throw 'em into a fajita cold but I'll have to remember to fry them next time.
Really? I would have thought it'd pretty common...
Although this is coming from someone who used to put pepper, spicy seasoning, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar on crackers so what do I know about what's common?

Derogatory Trainer said:
Not to ME.
...
Because I haven't played Xenoblade nor do I really care to.
I can only take two people called Melia in my entire life and the blonde one is the one I'm stuck with.
WELL I AM STILL GOING TO PUSH THIS UNTIL THE DAY I DIE, YOU CANNOT STOP ME.
EMPRESS MELIA ANTIQUA IS THE ONLY MELIA
Really, it's just that I don't have a Switch to experience it.
...
Is Xenoblade the one with the red headed sword lady with the big tits or is that something else?
Is Shulk a Xenoblade?
I know SOMETHING from that game is in Smash Bros. A game I also do not own.

HAAAUGH that was one of my longest replies so far in this.
Very impressive work.
NOW HERE WE GO AGAIN!
Thank god.
Now you'll finally go back to being normal Pika and not "eats Pocky, hangs dreamcatcher in bedroom and says XD in real life" Pika.
Well congratulations! This is actually the last one - I have officially run out of ways to be quirky.
... Also Pocky is pretty good and that dreamcatcher is a hand-me-down from my mom DAMMIT!
Huzzah!
...
I'll just assume Pocky is a lot more easy to buy in America and you don't import it directly from Japan.
And when i say "assume" I mean "hope".
And the dream catcher is fine really.
Loads of white American women go through that phase from what I can gather. My guess it's native American ghosts influencing them to buy their crap.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I started with Squirtle back in the nineties so that's my favourite starter by default (even if I like Bulbasaur and Ivysaur the most)
Oh, that's how I was when I got Crystal as a kid (I didn't have to pick between the Kanto starters since my first game was Yellow).
I liked Cyndaquil better, but went with Chikorita because I thought it was the "girlier" option - ironically it's my favorite Johto starter by a very small margin now.
Ah yes. Good ol' Yellow. Where Pikachu gets pissy if you lose a battle. Fun times.
I'm more of a Totodile guy but I also went with Chikorita for reasons I don't remember. Maybe the anime influenced me somehow?
I think the OG starters line-up (Being the first ones I ever picked in the games) went Squirtle, Chikorita, Mudkip, Chimchar, Samurott, Tepig, Chespin and Litten. If I was to choose the two gens I didn't play it's probably be Sobble and Fuecoco.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I think we're all just fucking sick of Kanto now.
Either improve their base stats to make them worth it or fuck off, Game Freak.
Agreed, I thought the Kanto callbacks were fun in Kalos but they just kept going afterwards when they really shouldn't have.
Yeah I was pretty okay with getting the Kanto starter off of Sycamore. (I even chose the meme Charizard) but they've gone too far now.
Also Kalos was a bit fucking weird about giving out good Pokemon so casually like that Lucario and Lapras.

Derogatory Trainer said:
The new run is going well so far.
Some things ARE different however. The starving Espurr was a boy this time around so I renamed Selina into "Kyle" and there are a lot of new party members now.
I MIGHT have gone overboard with the event Pokemon.
I've got two filled boxes and I've just beaten Serra.
Whoops?
Whoops, looks like Selina got gender-swapped :sweatdrop:
To be honest though; I always liked male Meowstic's design better than the female one.
Eh, don't feel bad about the boxes; I'm just about to fight Radomus and I'm started on my third box!
Oh well.
Her gender didn't matter THAT much.
Oh good luck! Hope you annihilate him!
I've postponed my run for a bit since I saw a hack that included Gen 8 Pokemon. Might even roll it back from an earlier save.
The bigger thing is that the Rejuvenation Crests are included in that hack so...y'know...VERY tempted by that Defensive Infernape Build Crest.

Derogatory Trainer said:
I've got it.
Pika is a refugee from the Ransei region of Pokemon Conquest
The constant warring and state-enforced Nobunaga fangirling that made her strong also took her mother from her at a young age giving her a bad case of PTSD.
So she copes by kidnapping early-to-late thirties women to act as her mother and preparing the Sinnoh region for when the Ranseians stop their infighting and start looking outwards towards their nearest neighbour, Sinnoh.
...
It's an idea at least?
... Okay, I'm probably not going to go with this since I sort of have something forming in my mind already - but damn this is a good idea.
Pika would absolutely fit in with a bunch of conquer-happy warlords.
Could always use it for an ancient ancestor?
I have no idea if Conquest is even Nuzlockable though.
I can only hope they game you pick isn't Rocket Red Edition. Because that's the one I'm probably doing.
You know now that I think about it the origin doesn't even have to be 100% about Pika.
Whatever happened to her Dad for instance? Could be something there too.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Haha, sounds like you've got Reborn on the brain there. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a Team Galactic/Plasma/Meteor team up to take you down.
... DAMMIT!
Yeah, I had just finished dealing with Meteor at Tanzan as I was writing so they were fresh in my memory; there will be no team-up! That would be way too much editing...
There was very little chance of it anyways.
Like Cyrus and Lin might get on but for once in our lives Ghetsis is the sanest person in the room and would nope the fuck right out of their doomsday alliance.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Pretty good AND pretty lazy!
I don't have to take ANY reaction pictures at all for these chapters!
Here's a sneak peek for what I've got so far on one of the Melia chapters.
Honestly? I really do like this.
I always love when stories take a moment to look at another character's perspective - it gives a chance to build on who they are and what their motivations are; or how they think about/view others (such as the main character).
... I think this might be an unpopular opinion though.
Oh no it's a good idea from a gameplay point of view and I enjoyed the segments well enough (moreso with my own additions). but it's absolutely HORRENDOUS from a reaction-locke pov.
Derogatory Trainer said:
Okay I knew THAT much.
I know a decent amount about battle mechanics at the very least.
But sadly...not all the mechanics.
Did you know there's a Counter/Mirror Coat like move called Metal Burst that doesn't care whether the attack was Physical or Special?
BECAUSE I SURE DIDN'T.
I did know about Metal Burst!
... Or at least I learned about Metal Burst during my Reborn run.
Sturdy + Metal Burst is broken with how great it is.
I never actually saw it in action until recently myself. Always thought it was a weird move that always failed but it turns out my Pokemon were just slow as balls and never outsped the Pokemon using it.
Oh very much so.
Sturdy and Counter is my go-to Sawk Strat. Makes mincemeat out of the Giant Steelix.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Wow.
What prophetic vision you have there.
I gotta be honest here; I actually do remember some sort of apocalyptic even happening.
I... think it might have been some sort of alternate universe scenario or something? I think someone got blasted by a laser? ... It might have been you?
I do know there's a big decision that you have to make though - just don't remember many specifics.
Well if it's getting blasted by lasers it's definitely me.
But yes, you're right. Glad that your memory is fuzzy on it though! Makes reading this all the more pleasurable, I'd imagine.

Derogatory Trainer said:
The sad truth of life is that we're slowly becoming our grandparents when they said "Back in my day, things were built to last!"
But honestly, it's just because we never remember the stuff that didn't last. Like there used to be more posters but one by one they all fell and were binned as Skyrim watched on.
Yeah, you got a point.
There used to be three Yu-Gi-Oh posters actually; the other two just sort of... vanished. (I actually just think my family didn't want a bunch of Yu-Gi-Oh posters hanging up in the living room.)
Wow. Your family let you hang posters OUTSIDE your room?
My mother would have no doubt punched me in the nose had I tried that.
She's never forgiven me for the crayon drawings on the wall I did 25 years ago...

I'd say Heatran.
Both because it kinda has a poo look about it and because Sinnoh Pokemon seem to be the only ones that get human gijinkas in this universe.
All the Hoenn Legendaries seem to just be regular Pokemon.
The Kalos ones seem to be the ones actually in charge behind the scenes, The Alolan ones might be mindless antagonists and and we actually haven't heard a single thing about any of the Johto or Unovan Legendaries yet.

Okay, I gotta know; what is Rose's middle name?
Is it Mary? Like as in Rosemary?
While that's cute, no.
You're thinking about the name the wrong way.
It's not Rose M---Dragon, It's Rose---M. Dragon.

This is the problem with using gods in a story, there's gotta a be a weird arbitrary reason for them to not just snap their fingers and fix everything.

But didn't Angie and Indriad constantly call Arceus their "Lord"?
Hmmm...

Hmm... Mew? That might be a bit of a stretch though.
In all honesty it probably is Arceus and the whole "lord" bit was either an error or Arceus can change genders at will - wouldn't surprise me.
It probably isn't Mew. That cute cat doesn't strike me as the plotting mastermind type. It's too playful and childish for it.
I think there's multiple parts of Arceus in this game so maybe Angie is referring to one of the different pieces?

I was about to get mad cats being the wrong answer for a second, but you're absolutely right.
DRAGONS ARE THE ONLY ANSWER!
Cats are too proud for animals that lose their minds when they see a red dot.
But yes.
DRAGONS.

So, a quick analysis here.
On the tracks we see Veronica tied up on one side and the entire planet on the other, then we see two levers; on to the side being controlled by Melia and on top of the trolley being controlled by you.
Now this either goes one of two ways: Melia panics and doesn't do anything with her lever thus leaving it entirely up to you (and let's be honest Veronica is right there; when will you ever get another opportunity like this?), or you both hit your levers, but in opposite ways (because we know you can never agree with Melia), thus causing the trolley to start multi-track drifting - hitting both Veronica as well as the world simultaneously.
So either way Veronica dies here.
A very good and well-thought out analysis.
Even referencing the Initial D meme too...
...

But it was meant to symbolise the brakes.
Why do I have to choose when I can just stop the cause of the problem? Why does NOBODY ever say, "Fuck you" and pick that option?
...
Also you can't change the tracks from the train.
Derogatory Trainer said:
Personally, I think we could do without a good two billion off our current world population until we can stabilize this shit better.
There were only five billion around when I was born and two billion when my grandmother was born, you know.
That's a means the population increased by three billion for 60 years and then another three billion more in less than 30.
Will it be another three in 15 years?
It's genuinely getting out of hand.
If it makes you feel any better the population is seemingly starting to slow down on the growth a little bit; better education and more viable birth control in third world countries are helping.
I literally just took a class on this, so I've had this conversation several times over the past few months.

Mega-Heracross is a beast stat-wise and will certainly be a boon to the team.
I'm just not that fond of Skill Link as an ability for it.
The only STAB moves you can give it to take advantage of that are Arm Thrust and Pin Missile.
Plus one of Skill Link's main uses (King's Rock flinching) can't be used due to him needing to hold a Mega-Stone.
Click to expand...
Ah man, I can't wait until I get a King's Rock in Reborn and can get to work on that flinch spam.
(You can apparently get it off Poliwhirl in Tanzan Cove, but they're so damn rare :cybercrime:)
That's right, you still have Dusty for that. Should make him pretty deadly with Tail Slap.
Compound Eyes and Super Luck, Pika!
If you strategically put one of your Pokemon with that ability into a coma (let it faint but don't count it) you can use a Pokemon with Frisk to speed things up nicely.

Couldn't be any more ego-centric, could they?
Oh sure, Magneto wants all non-mutants either enslaved or dead but when heckin' America is under attack he jumps to help.
Or how Juggernaut in the back there tried doing the very same thing by himself a few years before 9/11.
The only one I could possibly buy feeling that way is Kingpin because he's a New Yorker and would probably see it as a personal insult.
God I fucking hate comic book writers.
Click to expand...
I don't know much about comics (I don't read much superhero stuff - I've never really been into it) but I feel like these guys should either not care that a bunch of people died, or be pissed someone stole their thunder.
To be fair I do (kind of) know why they would write this though; I was only 5 when 9/11 happened and even I was paranoid that a plane was going to crash into my school for a while - it had a big effect on the nation and they were probably just trying to emphasize how bad it was.
... Could have just done something with the heroes though.
I don't know much either. I only remember buying this issue when it came out and thought it was stupid enough to commit to memory.
And yes, nobody there should have cared.
I wish they'd leave that shit out of fictional stories about men wearing tights beating each other up. Like why do they have to darken fantasy with reality? It's so cheap of them to use actual tragedies just for pathos and to sell comics.
I suppose I am seeing this from the perspective of a non-American so it'd be different for you.
Regarding the heroes, my question is where the hell they all were when it was happening!
New York is infested with them and not ONE could jump up and catch the planes? Bullshit.

The New York Yankees was just for a nonsensical giggle.
Team Zen is what Team Xen would be called if they were a group of radical Buddhist Monks who want to bring peace and tranquillity to the world.
BY FORCE
Team Yen is if Team Xen was a corporation.
Team Jen is if Madame X's real name is Jennifer.
Team Den is if Xen HQ is actually based out of Neved's den in his house.
Team Ten is if there were only Ten members of Team Xen
And Team Men is if they were all they were all men.

Of course these are just meanings I made up for this reply.

I just haven't been in the mood to work on this or much of anything lately.
It's probably due to the bright evenings throwing me off.

If you need to take some time off then you should - you come before your run.
I mean look, I took a month and a half off for school!
We'll still be here when you get back; you're not getting rid of us that easy!
If I take proper time off I'll probably end up going "Hmmm...naaaahhh" and not upload for 6 years.
Plus I took a year off when I cracked by back and couldn't sit down for very long so I'm already behind schedule.
Also taking a month and a half off for school is the RESPONSIBLE thing to do and you should be commended for it.
If I take time off, it will literally be to laze around and be unproductive.

Well RIP to anyone who wanted Steven Stone to win.
My predictions for this round are that Leon will beat Alain, Diantha will beat Lance, Iris will beat Cynthia and Ash will beat Steven.
Then Leon will beat Diantha and probably face Ash in the finals where it COULD go either way.
I STILL support Iris all the way though.
Haxorus REPRESENT!
Well obviously Ash is going to beat Steven dammit, I think it's a tossup between Lance and Diantha since on one hand Lance is the OG champ (not counting Blue) but I don't know how popular Diantha was in the anime, Leon will obviously beat Alain, and once again it's a tossup between Iris and Cynthia.
I'm still rooting for Cynthia though - Garchomp supremacy!
Well I don't think anyone was surprised by Leon's victory over literal who Alain.
Lance and Diantha is actually the hardest to predict because they're both very rarely seen in the anime characters compared to the others. No clue what they might pull out.
If Garchomp needs to Mega-Evolve against Haxorus, I'll have already won the moral victory.
Because I can forever claim that Iris would have won if not for a gimmick.

Ah, finally - Perfect Sean.
A form only spoken of in legends.

Well I do know where each of them is hiding. They've got statues spread around the region next to large bodies of water so it can't be too hard.
Also Cyrus made an artificial second one by himself so there's definitely a way around having to get the legendaries themselves.

Click to expand...
honestly i don't think he is being mean. I do think Sean is actually having a fair point for once. He sacrificed sooo much for her, his mother, some of his friends got cursed or worst, MANY of his pokemon died for the Melia cause and what not... I understand she not wanting to talk about her father in this timeline (yes v13 is a different timeline in my eyes because in that one Jenner actually fought back and helped by being on top of his Klingklang blasting every grunt, BECAUSE YES ZETTA AND GEARA ACTUALLY TOOK THE EXTRA TIME THEY HAD TO GATHER A SMALL ARMY OF GRUNTS, with a lock on zap cannon combo) but ... to ask to save Venam... and not even consider trying to save anyone else ? AFTER EVERYTHING THAT SEAN DID FOR THEM ? they should have least turned around to ask Sena if he wanted to ask about Nancy or anyone he cared for aswell... sigh...
sorry about the outburst but pre v13 melia for me is stupidity incarnate and we all know it...
Nah. It wasn't FOR her that all those sacrifices were made. Most of them just happened to coincide with defending her.
Like I don't blame Nancy's death on Melia because it was her own stupid decision to jump in front of a fucking sword when she most likely knew I was immortal and that wouldn't have killed me. I was irritated by the spotlight immediately going back to her.
Most of the curses weren't Melia's fault either, Aelita got cursed because apparently the Garufans really hated uninvited guests and Nim got cursed because...I'm still not really sure why she turned to stone.
As for the Pokemon...well most of the major losses happened when Melia wasn't even in the scene. Yveltal, Conkeldurr and the Kimono Girls for example.
Nice to see Jenner FINALLY did something right in later versions though.
Also I wouldn't have wasted a wish like that on Nancy.
She wasn't built up at all as a character before she died so my feelings towards her are...meh.

I personally would find them using telepathy like EVERY other legendary pokemon does... but this is the word we live in i guess...
It's the most brilliant of schemes though.
If they take human form they can't be caught in a Pokeball.

The penmanship was faaar too good for a Pokemon with no hands.

A...Time Gear Amulet?

Wait, aren't these supposed to be in shrines so time doesn't stop?
It's been a while since I played Explorers of Sky but wasn't that the whole big deal?
Click to expand...
i think they were ? but hey cool that we have one ?
I suppose?
I'm not exactly a big amulet wearing guy though.

Derogatory Trainer said:
eRT65KOm.jpg

I don't see any fast-forward or pause buttons on this though...
Maybe if I put it IN a remote?
Click to expand...
OH maybe. We could test it out. Imagine how it could help agaisn't xen. Even if just to pause time, go to Geara and slap him as hard as we can without him having any bs to dodge it.
Sadly, it doesn't do anything but provide protection from time distortions. Badly, at that.
No pausing or rewinding time for us.

YET.

Well I picked him up and threw him.
It's pretty self-explanatory, Nova.
nnwLovOm.jpg

Oh.
Well the best theory I can come up with is I've got something I call "Cartoon Strength"
Where I'm exactly as strong or durable as I need to be for a slapstick joke to work.
Like if someone dropped a piano on me, instead of being dead or crippled, I'd be concussed and have the piano keys where my teeth usually are.
jJfzwoCm.jpg

Yeah, you're probably better off going with the flow like most of the others.
This might sound hypocritical but dwelling TOO much on these jokes will drive you into an early grave.
Click to expand...
to simplify Nova. Its looney tunes rules. If its funny sean can do anything he freaking wants even if that break reality...but only works in the point of jokes nothing else. powerfull but not usefull.
I think my explanation was more simple.
Looney Tunes can't exist in the Pokemon world since most of the characters are animals so she has no frame of reference for it.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Really sorry for trying to give Erin a reason for coming to this time period.
Derogatory Trainer said:
SrhmDA4m.jpg

So just do what I do and blame blondie here.
And as an added bonus, she's actually guilty this time!
Hooray!
Click to expand...
like she is everytime ? she is always to blame... my has your influence made me just a person who always agrees on the screw Melia train ?
I am a master manipulator.
I have everyone reading this run blaming Melia for all my problems even when she's innocent!

Derogatory Trainer said:
9OkmjYvm.jpg

God, that's lonely.
Are we your only friends, Erin?
Click to expand...
perhaps... but i think you and her would be really good friends. the fact she pays attention is really rare and heck i will say it as much edge Erin has she is one of the character i do like in this game.
Probably.
We don't exactly share much screen-time together by ourselves to become good friends.
Also she might be afraid of me due to the fact that she PAYS ATTENTION.
Which would frighten anyone if they took what I say sometimes seriously.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Better that than one of them trying to eat the other.

I never turn that light on anyway.

good for you Nova. And guess Zira is back on the Tofu.
Not yet.
The Tofu is for GRAVE offences, not getting her ass kicked by a bird.

Although I did find Carnage in Sheridan...
Maybe he's descended from the Heracross that lived here?
Click to expand...
maybe ? it would make the most sense... Although them not being wild encounters in sheridan besides the one is off for me.
The Heracross Woods only have Heracross in them, I think.
Perhaps it got moved a lot deeper inland after the Calamity?

1TEYHkQm.jpg

In fact, why has nobody really mentioned Indriad to Melia at all?
Why is her possible father/ancestor a Sean&Venam villain of all fucking things?
Click to expand...
Sean is a mute and Venam has been petrified... but for why she didn't tell her while they had a lot of chance between east gearen and now... Venam is stupid ? is the only thing i can think of.
Yeah we only mentioned it in passing about their being a cult in that mansion before we got interrupted.
Guess it just never came up again in conversation.

Derogatory Trainer said:
DCcWogMm.jpg

What are you even worrying about, Melia?
I will literally just beat her up again if she tries anything dodgy.
She's like fifty years weaker now too. Should be a piece of cake.
Xu41LvXm.jpg

Uh...
Yes.
THAT was my intention.
Definitely not me just bragging about how I can beat literally every living thing at a Pokemon battle like usual.
fvFjr7Ym.jpg

Nope! Just good ol' friendly Sean!
Click to expand...
i mean... with age may come wiseness but with youth there is strength... be confident you can beat your enemy but not overconfident to the point you underestimate them. Be prepared even if you are sure you got it.
Well yes, there's that but I always use MAXIMUM FORCE whenever I can, no matter if I think they're weak or not.

I'm sure I'll NEVER embarrass myself like that again.
Derogatory Trainer said:
Seems to come with the job of Sensei in this town.
I'm almost completely sure the position is cursed at this point.
Will it turn out that Texen is actually depressed underneath all the douchebaggery?
And next time we see him he'll be crying in his pillow about how nobody likes him because he wears shorts and a sweater vest combo?
Like DAMN kid, you went to a prep school, we GET it.
even then i would just say fuck him. Texen is to me like Geara. I rather not see them again if i can.
I mean Texen flirted with Aelita and Geara pushed me into an open volcano...
Not really sure those two crimes are exactly equal, you know?

Just wait until I make the one with the main cast.
We just need to give Amber fire powers and we'll be set.

Derogatory Trainer said:
Yeah, see that's where the inferior part comes in.
You're missing the Sean of your group.
You know?
The charming rogue who ties it all together with his penis?
tbh you had the choice of being a girl at the beginning. The Sean of the group is the person with actual intelligence and common sense which they seem to lack?
And just imagine what a clamfest this game would be if I had? Ugh.
Sean can't apply that though. He has to work within the confines of the game until he gets fed up and breaks reality to suit his jokes.

Click to expand...
sigh I'm going to be honest... this question i see 2 scenarios
in the game since we are immortal it would be a yes. But IRL ? If something on the moment like split second, maybe. If i had time to think most likely no. and before you all saying I'm heartless there is a factor people always forget when someone sacrifices themself... the guilt and responsibility you leave behind for the ones you sacrifice for... They will fill the guilt with you using your life to save theirs. There is also some cases where they would not accept this fact and rather die alongside you than stay alive with that guilt and pain. Because you may sacrifice yourself and leave the world without any regrets... but what about the regrets you gonna leave behind for the others?
these are the factors no one remembers when someone does these acts and even myself just recently been awakened to this reality... self-sacrifice and heck suicide may leave the person doing it happy and without regrets... but will also leave guilt, pain or regrets for those who are alive and knew said person...
Yeah I'm too selfish to do it myself. I wouldn't consider other people in the equation or anything
Fuck other people, I'm more important than them because I'M me.
I'd probably only ever do it for my children and my children only.

Yes.
That seems like just the right place for me.

quite indeed. With Aelita kicking their asses with martial arts. It would certainly be the right place to be.

YOU'LL NEVER BE FINISHED! YOU'LL BE READING UNTIL EITHER YOU OR I DIEEEE!!!

anywho, caesar is my favorite, rose is adorable, why is melia the main character - can we go back to when she wasnt? maybe jan realized halfway through part 1 he actually wanted to make a tales of [aevium] game and went for it
Ugh...another one of those Caesar fans, eh? Well you'll fit in with the rest pretty well.
I genuinely can't remember a time when she wasn't anymore. It's been so long...
Hah! That's actually a good way of putting it.

im not even playing the game and i'm rankled by your being demoted to sidekick
Yeah...it used to be me forging my own path but now we're just following along someone else's.
Just wait until the coma arc where I literally am in a fucking coma and play as other characters.
Same as the above. I have finally caught up (and looking forward to the 2025 update of the reborn run)
I appreciate your struggle to get through it.
Less so your probably accurate prediction.
oA6cj9tm.jpg


Now where the fuck is my belt?

Goddamn it the one article of clothing I can take off and I lose it.

FF6VIrTm.jpg


Whatever, I'll just use a Focus Sash instead.

Hopefully none of those fuckers I call my Pokemon will need it later.

m4YsJPxm.jpg


You know full well there is no such thing.

Only "OH GOD WHY DO I HAVE TO GET UUUUUUUUP" mornings.

oA6cj9tm.jpg


As you can see by the empty room, my companions have learned never to wake me.

Turns out you CAN teach a dog new tricks if you just shake them hard enough.

Oh save that judgemental "finally", Cella.

I was up late last night watching your Sensei have a baaaaa...aaaa...th.

Yeah I couldn't save it.

YOU COULDN'T TELL VIVIAN ABOUT THE FUTURE SHE SAVES BUT YOU CAN TELL PEOPLE ABOUT HOW WE WERE SPYING ON A WOMAN IN THE BATH!? HUH!?!

uYXLDjsm.jpg


ARE YOU ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST ME NOW?! IS THAT IT?

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE A TEAM HERE!

TMJaRYNm.jpg


Well there was something about purifying herself, being an anime magical girl, God abandoning the region and then she asked me if I'd kill myself for my friends and family.

So you know.

Average Aevium conversation topics.

2gOVGwhm.jpg


Look she was standing in a pool wearing nothing but a white robe.

How the fuck was I supposed to pay attention?

By asking her straight up!

We're not going to be doing that, are we?

It's going to be the "stupid overly complicated plan" again, isn't it?

slT5mlQm.jpg


Damn it, those always backfire, people!

Why don't you do what you lot are best at and emotionally manipulate her into telling you!?

Use every dirty trick in the book!

Puppy dog eyes, silent treatment, acting moody for attention, the works!

Could you...maybe say so ALOUD so the rest of us can join in?

After all they're so rarely used that rust has started to build up!

CWV40K6m.jpg


Did it make you think "Wow, what terrible parents to name their child that"?

v29sa7Em.jpg


Don't kick yourself for that, Cella.

He's a very forgettable person in general.

JedqCGDm.jpg


It doesn't help that I've never battled him and that he was almost instantly replaced by the much prettier albino over there.

TgB7Cr2m.jpg


Well it was none of those.

Because those are actually names.

Well...maybe not "Keith"...
eqSEY6km.jpg


Now what would have been much funnier is if you starting listing camera brand names like Nikon or Fujifilm.

Or like the man himself:

Sacre Bleu!

The Kan-Kan man was in Sheri-dan?

Whatever for?

QSsQFA2m.jpg


Oh for f...

He came here to spread his fucking cult.

What is with this town and the fucking Garufans?

I miss Akuwa Town.

There wasn't any ancient civilisation shenanigans there.

TaYpHnLm.jpg


It's fine.

Valarie's still brainwashed into being Lois Lane and only she (for some unknown reason) can lift the mining ban.

Even though her water shows were the reason it was stopped and she's been gone for months at this point.

LuNGS52m.jpg


It's as stupid as it sounds, yes.

twxUkLIm.jpg


Horcrux.

It's a Horcrux.

We're rehashing that stupid Keta soul plot again, aren't we?

Except we're blatantly ripping off Harry Potter this time.

KyBiKuGm.jpg


Stab the book with a snake's fang? Pull a sword out of a hat and stab the diary? Whatever the third method to destroy them was?

9ypCXULm.jpg


Besides why does it matter? The reason Vivian's depressed is that there's a massive disaster about to befall the earth and that cheapskate Arceus won't fucking cover the cost to save it.

WHY DIDN'T SPRITE-SEAN TELL THEM ANY OF THOSE DETAILS?!?

u6gNNBWm.jpg


WHY CAN YOU NEVER DO ANYTHING RIGHT WITHOUT ME, YOU STUPID FUCKING BASTARD!?

LITERALLY THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF WHAT VIVIAN WAS RABBITING ON ABOUT AND YOU FAIL TO MENTION IT!

I FUCKING HATE YOU, ME!

1BhQ36dm.jpg

Gee.

I wonder who among us has experience in both stealth and reading people's private books?

qDYtWSAm.jpg


Yeah, Cella!

hXSZr0Km.jpg


You want someone from Team Sean to commit...a c-c-c-c-crime!?

Such a thing has never been done before!

c8DXaOvm.jpg


Horrible's too strong a word.

We're stealing a possibly cursed book for her well-being, not shooting her dog.

I'd classify our behaviour on this mission as meddling, not horrible.

T5SZag0m.jpg

D8OknEBm.jpg


I agree with Erin for agreeing with my earlier misgivings.

We're acting on very little information here aside from "Vivian is sad, this bad. Magic is involved."

KtZHwVSm.jpg


Do we?

We met her for like an hour yesterday and you want us to risk it all (well actually nothing at all) to help her?

...

Yeah, that sounds like something you'd do.

Z0vXtWem.jpg

mpYmlvum.jpg


Oh?

Mighty noble of you, Melia.

ebaehBdm.jpg


But I think Vivian's going to be more angry with the person who actually did the stealing from her room than some behind-the-scenes conspirator.

And since you have all the stealth skills of an avalanche, that's going to be me.

dyfb9gIm.jpg


This happened before we met but her idea of infiltrating Blacksteeple prison was to walk up to the front door and hope nobody in the organisation dedicated to capturing her would look at her face.

For three days.

AND THE WORST PART WAS THAT IT FUCKING WORKED!

No go ahead and blame Melia for this one.

It's what I'll do.

You're being a little too gung-ho about this, Melia.

Like...tone down the overly heroic talk, would ya?

You're making us look like dweebs.

ATtJQCOm.jpg


Why are you always so concerned about people who are basically strangers?

cmo5kDkm.jpg


Is there something wrong with you for caring too much or something wrong with me for caring too little?

I mean I DID rant about slaughtering them by the billions last chapter so it MIGHT be me.

mhSlyTqm.jpg

Will we say it together then, Erin?

eptZQMGm.jpg


I'm sure your gung-ho-ness has nothing at all to do with a recent conversation with a pair of godly bitches about you "not being able to save everyone".

wRvW2Omm.jpg


Nope.

Nothing at all.

jAzvc1tm.jpg


Big shocker. The nun doesn't condone stealing.

Can't your god learn every move or something? (No)

Would an Arceus knowing "Thief" be considered blasphemy? (It can't learn Thief. I just checked.)

pN3FnOfm.jpg

kfaRKETm.jpg


Count me in...for now.

I want the right to pull everyone out if I agree with whatever Vivian's doing.

8XJRKZqm.jpg


Eternally, you say?

Okay, well in about fifty years I'm going to choose a warm rock over your life.

Please don't hold a grudge over it.

Especially since it didn't matter at all in the end.

6hxomIRm.jpg


All I really got was this pocket-warmer out of the deal.

I mean sure it's a GOOD pocket warmer but I would have preferred it didn't come at the cost of Aelita's screen-time, y'know?

Okay viewers, I have to immediately recant that "stop talking" plan.

I think you can understand why.

lIJnsYom.jpg

Can I pull on your face to check if it's a mask?

L0o9cAnm.jpg


Because I'm now 45% sure you might be actually Veronica in disguise.

WHXOgg7m.jpg

BTb4gx2m.jpg


Did you have a Mewtube channel about it?

With some annoying name like "Sheridan Shenanigans"?

Or something even worse like the "Sheridan SHE-nanigans" because you tried to use the fact that you were women doing something not as commonly done by women to boost viewership?

KS3eABnm.jpg


Because I swear to god I'll gun you and Vivian down right here and now if so.

Region be damned.

This is a FAR greater evil that needs to be purged!

XDeI626m.jpg

Interesting.

Didn't you hear her?

GOD YOU NEVER LISTEN, ERIN!

Efonr7wm.jpg


Okay...is there a special smelly tree that the Heracross like to drink sap from?

M5JdiODm.jpg


Yes, we figured that out from the name.

KN5obgnm.jpg

XW2bHeXm.jpg


...

That earlier percentage went up to 75.

9fuh7LOm.jpg


I'm still trying to understand why Sprite-Sean only told them that he was spying on Vivian and nothing about the things she said.

Like how God has abandoned the world and there's an apocalypse coming?

Q9Eui4lm.jpg


Guess God REALLY wants us to pick up Heracross shit.

TrsH6Ham.jpg

When I came to Aevium I swore a vow.

A vow to never pick up Pokemon shit.

And I've kept that vow for 140 chapters.

Well I've been through worse.

You got to sit nice and pretty in a control room while I waded through a fucking sewer to stop your piece-of-shit Garbodor.

kxSt6ewm.jpg


DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH BLEACH I HAD TO BATHE IN TO GET RID OF THAT SMELL!?!

I WASN'T GONE FOR MONTHS AFTER WEST-GEARAN BECAUSE OF MY SACRUM CRACKING, IT WAS SO I WOULDN'T HORRIFY THE VIEWERS BY BEING COVERED IN UNHEALED CHEMICAL BURNS!!

Why do you need two people for it's construction?

You're only building a stink bomb not a stink surface-to-air missile.

And off we go!

To explore Carnage's ancestral lands!

I'm guessing they moved somewhere bigger later on?

Now what's going on up ahead?

And of course, after taking my eyes off them for...

About three minutes?

Melia and the gang have gotten themselves surrounded by hostile Pokemon.

*Sigh*

wE5fVpXm.jpg

zhAX2ZYm.jpg


Fuck'em.

We ain't in the tall grass.

The treaty we signed after the Great Off-Screen Pokemon War gave us the flatlands and skies and them the grass and caves.

Seas are more of a neutral zone since they mostly only attack if we're actually IN the water not on a boat crossing it.

SVvFSRNm.jpg


Anyway the point I was trying to make before I starting making up lore is that they have no power here.

I think they'd probably be just disgusted with us.

IT'S ALRIGHT, MELIA!

WE'LL STILL LOVE YOU EVEN IF YOU'RE A FUCKING FREAK!

1RUFbqLm.jpg


Bashful or not we're still going to have to...well bash it.

Just pretend it's eyeing you up as the weakest link.

Which...might be true?

We've never fought after all and I don't know how strong a "monochrome aesthetic" team could actually be.

WE'RE DOOOOOMED!!!

Wow I hadn't actually considered that.

Also I'm pretty sure I told you not to mention that specific strategy in front of the audience.

But regarding Carnage...

This is a really un-heroic moment for us.

We're all in agreement not to tell anyone in the future about how we beat up some innocent Pokemon for their poo, right?

Rock, Paper, Scizors to decide who does it?

eHATUcmm.jpg


That it does, Erin.

6vs21uqm.jpg


That it does...

R5e6jghm.jpg


(HEH.)

(Unbeknownst to Erin and the rest of these FOOLS, I have a secret Rock, Paper Scissors technique passed down to me by...uh...10 year old Sean when he invented it.)

(The trick is to pretend to mis-time your throw a second before the final count so the opponent is tricked into picking the winning option.)

(When I was growing up the chant was "Rock, Paper, Scissors. One, Two, Three!" and then release.)

(What you want to do is fake say...Paper on the 2 count like you shot too early but change it to Rock on the final 3 count.)

(9/10 times the opponent thinks you're a dumbass that's going to throw out paper so they go with scissors.)

(But in fact, you'll throw out rock and punch them in the face!)


rGfzxwUm.jpg


Anyway...

Rock, Paper, Scissors.

One, Two, Three!

OmI3mYem.jpg

6wRFG1Dm.jpg


Yeah, sure.

j0avN6bm.jpg


"Dang it".

Like you didn't lose on purpose so you could fondle the faeces.

I put a Pokemon twist on the game, Melia.

Of COURSE we were all going to pick "Scizors".

Rnf68YAm.jpg

yG4vlx2m.jpg

oNII5zZm.jpg


That was incredibly satisfying for me to watch.

Thank you.

Ed0lch1m.jpg


Yes.

That jar of shit will definitely save the day.

btCQYdym.jpg

NkL9XgDm.jpg


Wait, what?

What disaster are you talking about?

The "DISASTER" looming in the near-future or Vivian being upset over something?

Wouldn't call the latter a disaster by any means.

CrEf4s6m.jpg

padDKMym.jpg


Those darn trouble making kids, huh?

I know how you feel, Melia.

...

nFVd00Xm.jpg


Intimately.

1640LbJm.jpg


Also how fucking old is Kanon supposed to be anyway?

Both Melia and Venam keep calling him kid or brat for some reason.

He literally looks the exact same age as all of them.

Vaugely 16-18.

qTWh0Akm.jpg

kzpNpW4m.jpg


She's doing it to prove Timpea & Spacea wrong.

uWtBp2Sm.jpg

UbsqZsLm.jpg


Mmhmm.

I'm now 100% sure that the entire conversation we had with them was their attempt at goading Melia into doing exactly what they want.

Qa1k6Qxm.jpg


No. It's definitely one of your more admirable traits.

eWziLcym.jpg


But if you're going to help someone, the very LEAST you can do is be good at it.

The amount of effort I've expended propping you up is getting ridiculous now.

walBjlxm.jpg


It does, doesn't it?

9PIzLGfm.jpg


I can't really blame her for it here though.

I'd be trying to prove those god bitches wrong too if they told me I couldn't do something.

iVASqlBm.jpg


They told her they can't wait to wring her little lesbian friend's neck and make her and millions of other people watch.

...

That's the gist anyway.

RmA8fJLm.jpg


Urgh?

No idea what they could say that would do that, Erin.

KwXsL4tm.jpg


What's the problem?

Is the smell getting to you?

You do seem the type to have weak constitution.

RpuklIPm.jpg


She's clearly an INT build if I ever saw one.

aEh1rJVm.jpg


It is.

...

r3hNvNlm.jpg


And dreadfully familiar.

Last time someone in the group came over with a sudden illness, it culminated with both of us falling into an open volcano.

1CcL6LOm.jpg


Here's hoping that's it.

Or she's allergic to meaningless busy work like this outing.

PGZgi7Fm.jpg

EkFPtSkm.jpg


Yeah...

Say, you'd tell us if you were holding some sort of psychic explosion back right?

UpqRUTNm.jpg


Only thing I can think of why she'd suddenly feel ill.

If we start seeing any black energy auras I want you to pump Psychic energy into her while I run and every Psychic type I have from the box.

X6n0OHcm.jpg


It's worth a try.

Crescent did something to cure her in that cutscene I wasn't present for but am now cursed with the knowledge of.

And she's mostly known for Psychic types so it's as good a guess as any.

uxI7Su5m.jpg


Huh?

Is that one of the Heracross I hear?

C4OKrt6m.jpg


Fuck you, this is a Pokemon FANgame.

It could be a Ditto or Zoroark for all you know.

Jan's already pulled that once before and by god he'll do it again!

G6KizXtm.jpg


Look buddy, I know you're probably awestruck by how skilled my Pokemon are and want to join me but I've already got a Heracross at home.

iU00EWJm.jpg


And I've already got your corresponding Megastone.

So unless you're about to give me a Mega-Ring, piss o-

cgu4cNZm.jpg


-Off?

Oh, you admire Aelita instead?

Well. I suppose she is a fighting type trainer...

Always thought her Mega would eventually be Blaziken tho-

xJIVth8m.jpg


HEY!

THAT'S MY AELITA, YOU FUCK!


uUMEWFVm.jpg


ATTACK A HUMAN OUTSIDE OF HONOURABLE TURN-BASED COMBAT, WILL YOU?!

ESPECIALLY ONE THAT I LIKE!?

THE TREATY IS NOW NULL & VOID!!!


yx4xDSSm.jpg


THE WAR STARTS ANEEEWWWWWWW!!!

qqFMheJm.jpg


RAAAAGH!

JNTVFmrm.jpg

ObgeS9um.jpg

AxheUsym.jpg


Let that be a lesson to everyone else.

Don't touch my stuff.

m5rqkTBm.jpg


Both physically and with your new role as the Pokemon equivalent of Franz Ferdinand.

fmyR6Fgm.jpg


It...didn't?

...

uaSiXq2m.jpg


Shit.

I might have re-started an ancient war, guys.

lHcHwsFm.jpg


Shut it, Caesar!

I have to draw up complicated war alliances now.

yFTlt00.jpg


The Flying and Fire typ-

I mean Kingdoms...will probably join our side, Grass and Psychic too...

But if the Fire join us, Water will join the enemy. We might get the Electric types out of that though.

And since Ground and Water types hate each other as much as Electric types, Ground will probably sit this one out.-

...

VdnKpuSm.jpg


I assume the plot for Pokemon Conquest?

I genuinely know nothing at all about that game aside from it being a bit like Final Fantasy Tactics or Ogre Tactics.

Was a Pokewar not the premise?

I'm sure Oda Nobunaga was involved somehow, given how the Japanese cream themselves at the mere mention of him...

rVgX4C7m.jpg


D-don't worry about all that, Aelita!

o7Yxlabm.jpg


I'm sure it'll be fine!

That Heracross probably won't get word to enough other Pokemon tribes before the region explodes and kills them all.

So I think I'm in the clear.

tUINZs1m.jpg


Thank god for cataclysmic disasters, eh?

MawusQ9m.jpg


Amulet?

kMWruFIm.jpg


That tacky thing the goddesses gave all of us?

Except Erin because they probably hate albinos?

DYG8YlPm.jpg


And you're speaking in orange!

Oh this can't be good...

OH DAMMIT! NOW I'M DOING IT TOO!


2XxMzqmm.jpg


Heracross can't learn Snatch, Melia.

It clearly used Thief to take it from her.

lrnfAeQm.jpg


My god, did those uncertain amount of years as a Pokemon Professor's adopted daughter teach you NOTHING?

IhrtZk2m.jpg


NO.

We'll make our own out of duct tape, alarm clocks and believing in ourselves!

How hard can it be after all?

5YS1P3Wm.jpg


...

K7OEZxfm.jpg


Okay, I forgot I don't have an analog alarm clock that I can attach to some string for a necklace.

Photoshop it is then.

HZmdP6Lm.jpg


Oh right, yes.

Perhaps Cella has something for a general sense of unwellness.

As long as it's not any of that homeopathic shit that middle-aged women get scammed by we should be fine.

TOkVGTDm.jpg


And even though healing crystals are an actual legitimate thing on this nonsense planet, I'll still refuse it on principle.

jNu8ZSpm.jpg


You see guys, THIS is why you have to all get me an Audino for Christmas. (Whenever that is)

If we had one of those, we could heal Erin with it and she would feel instantly better!

I1sBHwxm.jpg


NO!

IT NEEDS TO BE AN AUDINO!

SO.

THE FUCK WAS THAT ABOUT!?!?

WHY'D SHE GIVE AELITA THE AMULET IN THE FIRST PLACE IF SHE WAS JUST GOING TO STEAL IT BACK!?!

Dh7hvKZm.jpg


SHOULD I PRETEND I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I SAW IT, SPRITE-SEAN DIDN'T?

GOD THESE FUCKING SEAN-LESS CUTSCENES GET ON MY NERVES! THAT'S SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION I CAN'T TELL ANYBODY ABOUT!



VvqEIvOm.jpg


Really?

You're going to miss out on the train-wreck that we're no doubt heading towards?

...

Oh...uh...

*cough* *cough*

uiCJwkAm.jpg


Why I'm feeling rather poorly as well now that I think about it!

I better lie down and not have to suffer this entire arc!

EcGWImim.jpg


Some water, tablets or perhaps an infusion of psychic energy blasted directly into your chakras?

It's all covered by your Team Sean health insurance, Erin.

So go nuts.

oEEwGtLm.jpg


Well okay then.

You rest up while we go do this stupid stink bomb thing.

2gsQkB0m.jpg


Oh and don't suddenly become overwhelmed with post-sickness energy and rush off alone to fight bad guys.

You'd think that wouldn't need to be said but Melia just looooves setting precedents for stupid bullshit.

2qMk0T0m.jpg


In a way, she's making the world a better place by showing future generations what NOT to do.

J0DEFhtm.jpg


...

J0DEFhtm.jpg


Seriously, I like Erin and all...but why was she pushed to come here if she's just going to be lying sick in bed?

What, is she supposed to catch some past-disease and infect the future when we take her back?

pC9xFHVm.jpg


I hope so.

But I also doubt so.

A character gets a mysterious illness just before crunch time? Never a good sign.

CcdgPxnm.jpg


That's not what I meant, I'm referring to the timing of it all.

Very suspicious.

Hbycfetm.jpg


You're so caring, Aelita.

KswsJ7ym.jpg


Cackling over their cauldron of evil no doubt.

NnmNx0mm.jpg

oXK7Lwtm.jpg


Oh wow. They both left at the same time, that's new.

But if this game wants to REALLY impressive me, the player has to leave with them too.






4abI8lam.jpg


Cella's house.

We're here.

Well thanks for jinxing it if it doesn't.

You make it so easy to blame you for things outside your control sometimes it's downright uncanny.

4A6aOSrm.jpg


Man, Aelita.

Where did your weird pep from yesterday go?

8JsmEccm.jpg


Are you trying to tell us you DIDN'T like watching Melia gather Heracross shit?

Did that curse also sap away your appreciation for good entertainment?

vETlaG3m.jpg

Hey now, I thought this was a stink bomb.

Did the plan get changed to dropping Vivian's IQ?

Guly4xlm.jpg

And am I about to actually witness the origin of why everyone in the region is so utterly brain-dead at times?

They've all been irradiated by Cella's stupid bomb getting into the water table?

Heh.

Melia had to pick more poo that necessary.

Today can't get any better!

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEP!

GZkGkSdm.jpg

Ah yes, please elaborate on your plan.

How will we be delivering the "package"?

Burning paper bag outside her door so when she comes out she'll step on it to put out the fire?

3O7ZikJm.jpg


I never really got how that prank worked.

Why would someone's first instinct be to stomp out the small fire sitting harmlessly in front of their porch?

Maybe it's just Americans and their weird plywood houses that would be in danger of catching fire?

ndeeMdLm.jpg


Oh okay.

We're doing this Santa style, huh?

xoGFeE3m.jpg

cEnn5mTm.jpg


Preferably outside the splash zone so you aren't hit as well.

You'll just mime doing it?

I think she's going to catch on to that pretty quickly...

You don't have to fucking DO anything.

Oh and before I forget here, Aelita.

41S23hMm.jpg


Your brand new-ish Time Gear amulet!

It'll be a far better keepsake than that tacky thing Timpea gave you!

APPRECIATE MY GIFT, AELITA!

This must be that twin bell Sheridan shares with Kristiline.

Guess this means ye Olde Sheridan was originally where the Corta Forest research lab is?

...

I don't know why the fuck I even remember that fact though.

Yep.

Let's become terrorists!

8W9zNFgm.jpg

But you can always send Melia to get more poo if you want.

As what basically amounts to her legal guardian, you have my full permission.

OH NICE FUCKING JOB WHIFFING IT, CELLA!

gik0WFpm.jpg


What?

Did you not see it go in FRONT of the chimney?

I think Cella's hacking, guys.

Please somebody ban her before she ruins my amazing K/D ratio.

I actually have a K/D ratio in this fucking Pokemon game.

But why would a stink bomb affect her eyes over her nose?

OMlWW79m.jpg

DmrNjAcm.jpg


...

I think that would just result in a lost eye not a stinging pain.

Hell, you'd probably straight-up die from it.

yI9o6m3m.jpg


Beedrill are 3 foot tall with 1 foot long stingers.

There's a reason Ash and the Gang were always running from them.

Those African killer bees look like complete pussies in comparison.

jxT2xO5m.jpg


Also as one final minor rant that I may have gone into before;

Why is Poison Sting a physical move?

vZHFbS8m.png


They depict it as a purple barrage of needle lasers.

At no point do they actually stab a Pokemon with a big stinger. Why is that?

Censorship? Do kids not get stung by bees in Japan?

The fact that bees sting and then die is one of the first things most people ever learn about insects!

...

Okay, rant over. Back to the plot to war-crime Vivian.

WjEepDKm.jpg


Seems Anju's a much better actor than Melia.

Maybe Cella was actually onto something when she relegated her and Aelita to "pick-up-poop-and-stay-out-of-the-way-duty"?

r93iUwim.jpg


And no.

I'm not going to make fun of how the word "duty" sounds like "doody" even if it's relevant right now.

It's a very fucking unfunny joke.

wJZmUCXm.jpg


Nobody outside of America even uses the word "doody".

qKDunOtm.jpg


Which is why I will be offering a bounty for the person who can track down the inventor of that joke.

Sixty billion double dollars to whoever can bring me his or her head.

fOgzK3vm.jpg


Sure.

Can't see anything wrong with going into a house filled with chlorine gas.

WnMRDm6m.jpg

71ZdCdJm.jpg


*cough*

kilfQ6Mm.jpg


So is this just a thing old people did back in the day? Commit war crimes?

bCVmDtqm.jpg


I mean granted there wasn't any legislature about the topic back then.

Which is...right now, I guess?

Whatever...I still think Chemical Warfare Cella should be in jail.

mbjx8vwm.jpg


...

Where the fuck does that chimney outside even lead?

There isn't a fucking fireplace in this house!

SCqknlhm.jpg


Oh?

Now what damning evidence have I found?

I honestly thought I'd be grabbing that book on the desk when I came in here.

Snooping through desk-bound diaries is my greatest talent after battling, you know.

NlpRPcrm.jpg


...

Ah.

NugUxkim.jpg


This must be what I'm after.

...

Hrn07z3m.jpg


Why the fuck does it have the remains of price tag on it?

Did Kanon gift it to her and scratched off the tag so she wouldn't not how much or little he spent on it?

Z3ydsLTm.jpg


And isn't that just what my Key Items Pocket needed?

ANOTHER magical artefact of unknown power!

7jv1UCVm.jpg


I swear to god, I'm going to trip over something one of these days and this bag will rupture, wiping out a significant portion of the planet.

THvjdEom.jpg


So Kanon gave Vivian a spell book of Garufan sorcery, eh?

Well this is unfortunately useless to me, since I don't have the "OH-SO-SPESHUL" bloodline needed to cast their spells.

...

wJcM0Nqm.jpg


I think that was a requirement to cast their spells, right? Or am I remembering that wrong?

Does this mean Kanon, Vivian (and Aelita) are descendants of the Garufan's like Karen and Karrina?

emzC8WXm.jpg


I'm really in over my head trying to understand this magical mumbo jumbo.

There doesn't seem to be any actual rules to using it.

hv5veDnm.jpg


Like how Karen had to use incantations to cast her magic but Krystal/Alexandra didn't.

She just screamed "AURA! I'M STOPPING THIS TRAIN RIGHT FFFFFUCKING NOW!" and stopped the train.

vWMesNQm.jpg


Who was Aura anyway? Or was she just evoking the power of Aura like Lucario's do?

Is Krystal/Alexandra's magic different somehow?

w26k87Fm.jpg


Look it's all very confusing to me.

The only thing I know is that I won't be casting "Fireball" at anyone anytime soon.

c2HjyYWm.jpg


Which is a shame.

Because that would be cool.

1RXw8mQm.jpg

F61Ayzym.jpg


Maybe if I tape the Magma Stone to a rod and started thrusting it at people?

...

cnORHyEm.jpg


We'll put a pin in this idea for now and ignore that I phrased it as "thrusting my rod at people".

Let's get back and check how badly the others fucked up their tasks.






EAzR6dnm.jpg


Hello ladies.

Did anyone order a good, long, hard-

uTwJOFdm.jpg


-back book?

quP0beKm.jpg


Chlorine gas.

Cella's going to be in prison until she eventually becomes the Eldest I'm afraid.

ZwqdRQEm.jpg


Oh wait, what am I saying?

Laws don't matter in this region.

KLzlQfEm.jpg


Especially not in this time period where you can defeat every police officer with a nugget of gold.

...

9zJqF9em.jpg


And a mouse-trap.

Fdp4nnkm.jpg


Oh good heavens, whatever could have possibly occurred in such a small amount of time?

314aRrcm.jpg


I shall stoically accept that news without resorting to the normal shock of hearing a bomb went of in someone's house.

...

Yes. This is the true meaning of acting normal.

If only Melia was here to take notes.

ebf79TDm.jpg


My rod?

Oh no, wait the evidence of Vivian's secret magical deeds, right?

zhFA69Om.jpg


God, I fucking hate how many times I've said the word "magical" since I came back to this time period.

I just wanted to play Pokeymon maaaaan...

TyjvSxsm.jpg


Can I have it back later?

I feel like it'll come in handy if I want a drink but don't have a coaster.

CdR1XhQm.jpg


Or as bait I can throw if Karen comes sniffing around again.

ovriJsZm.jpg

wuzesfam.jpg


Really?

kE4Xfsam.jpg


You really knew Vivian was practicing witchcraft?

Somehow I'm not buying it, Cella.

lFVx98mm.jpg


It was a mixture of giant bug faeces and hard vodka.

Which is what we'll all have to drink if those maniacs who want us all to eat bugs get their way.

And no I don't care if the UN says it would solve food shortages or whatever.

Fuck the UN and those starving people!

I ain't eating crickets while the rich get to eat delicious mammal meat!

zrulUHsm.jpg

YKrUGW8m.jpg

X0Kk5bCm.jpg


IT'S A JAR OF CRICKETS!

CELLA'S ONE OF THOSE BUG EATING FREAKS! BURN HER!


MmXqoOzm.jpg

kqFDoNHm.jpg

Kl1t4Pwm.jpg


OOooooohhh fuck.

Z2yj688m.jpg


Well...I'll let you have this one exclamation bubble.

QL6lzlAm.jpg


Vivian's knows that Arceus has abandoned the region to it's Storm-8 fate and has resorted to Garufan magic to counter-act the disaster.

Pretty heavy stuff.

L8XDSqJm.jpg


But on the bright side, it also proves that Garufan magic IS heretical and not natural at all.

So at least I can take solace in that while I'm worrying about what to do now.

TpHgjjsm.jpg


Wait a second, you needed to fucking BOOKMARK the page with the spell you're going to kill yourself with?!

You'd THINK you'd remember the page number of something like that!

jFmGEHOm.jpg


Fucking hell Viv. You really going to try pulling that move this late in the game?

Md3ttjFm.jpg


Wait, you knew enough on the subject to make notes?

Why would you need to make notes on it anyway?

Is there actual magic math involved in doing these spells?

Ay3rG61m.jpg

AgQXH4Em.jpg


...

Maybe don't end on "without telling me" Cella.

Makes it seem like you're more annoyed that she didn't tell instead of the whole suicide part.

zeYzTj9m.jpg


Well yeah, up until you died.

Then it would have been much worse.

a73xEIwm.jpg

djUa2A5m.jpg


"Back in the War, remember?"

"Heh...I'll never forget how those Galar scum's lungs burned from the inside out when we threw our "stink" bombs into their trenches."

"Their bloody choking screams lulled me to sleep every night." - Vivian&Cella, probably.

WcwLWngm.jpg

1sPXC1Nm.jpg


Thanks for explaining your suuuuper complex motivations, Cella.

Some things are better left implied, yanno?

BrIw76Cm.jpg


Yup.

ESPECIALLY Melia.

Why I'd say she was the mastermind behind this whoooole operation.

q9HFuYvm.jpg


Well...now we know for sure why Kanon wasn't allowed to come here.

It's...odd though.

He seemed genuinely annoyed about not being allowed to come...but he's the one who started this chain of events?

He didn't seem to know any of this though.

OBeWQDFm.jpg


Hmm...what IS that kid's deal?

And why does Madame X want Vivian to do this?

...

Was it really Madame X who changed him into an albino, come to think of it?

DIZa2gUm.jpg


Suit of armor.

8IdfXgXm.jpg


Magic spells.

eP1jTjWm.jpg


Lady in Red.

EA9sczbm.jpg


Lady in the mask

WMwntaNm.jpg


Now I don't know about you guys but that doesn't really describe Madame X.
Here, let's look at Zumi's artwork of her.
iEMsVUA.png

I wouldn't call her suit "armor" after seeing this.

She's never been shown to have magic powers (even that Kamehameha she shot at me was from a laser gun, I think?)

Lady in red...that could work but Red seems to just be her cape.

And mask...it's more of a helmet, no?

IoFRrO2m.jpg


So maybe there's some other bitch pulling Kanon's strings? Someone we haven't met yet?

Hmmm.

mSY8DVwm.jpg

WyvqoISm.jpg

t0lhV2dm.jpg


Yeah...uh...I'd like to add that my group doesn't?

Just 'cause it'd be kinda weird if we did.

R17q0czm.jpg


WELL I'M SORRY OUR HEART ISN'T BIG ENOUGH TO DEDICATE OUR LIVES TO SOME STRANGER WE JUST MET!

k3HoV0hm.jpg


But I get why you'd say that to Cella and Anju.

They're basically telling you, your life is worth more than everyone else in the region's put together.

GvzJWHPm.jpg


I only get it though. I don't understand it.

I'd take someone telling me that as a compliment, honestly.

...

diLWiDPm.jpg


And then I'd probably file a restraining order.

oZjVrSjm.jpg


Oh boy, she's gonna try something.

ECi5765m.jpg

C8xj1ZRm.jpg


Whoa!

That was a way more powerful Thief than that Heracross used!

Vivian's got some moves!

H3DFL4im.jpg

leIPaPBm.jpg


Unfortunately the rest of us can't say the same.

This always fucking happens when someone runs away.

We stand in complete fucking shock until they've ran halfway down the road.

XIhLhOam.jpg


It's like we've all got the reflexes of a brick wall.

L2NHGaxm.jpg


I think we should discuss the plan some more actually!

...

OF COURSE WE SHOULD FUCKING CHASE HER! DID IT REALLY NEED TO BE SAID!?

93Qq54wm.jpg

F53Fi5Rm.jpg


WELL YEAH, SHE'S HARDLY GOING TO SACRIFICE HERSELF IN THE SHACK WE SLEPT IN LAST NIGHT, IS SHE!?

Tu9MEKam.jpg


VAMONOS CHICAS!

WE GOT A SACRIFICE TO PREVENT/WITNESS!


HCMLprvm.jpg




rrmyqMam.jpg


Aelita! Melia!

God your names are similiar!

wZd6qG6m.jpg


Vivian knows we stole her book and is about to kill herself to maybe save the region.

...

I think.

dvkkkdgm.jpg


That's the part you focus on? Really?

And she didn't find out so much as Cella screamed at her about it.

Not a very smart move but finding out your best friend is planning to kill herself in a satanic ritual kinda obscures all rational thought.

sP35Gczm.jpg


Wait, they all passed by you?

Vivian included!?

UaLZK03m.jpg

UIhbZ7em.jpg


I DON'T KNOW, WHAT ARE YOU TWO JUST STANDING AROUND HERE DOING NOTHING?!

COULD YOU NOT HAVE MAYBE DELAYED VIVIAN A BIT FOR US!?

DnIOaIam.jpg


"Any way we can?"

So that's the go ahead to turn my filter off and outright bully Vivian with mean words?

LREdQCrm.jpg


This is probably going to be the first time someone's ever been bullied OUT of killing themselves.

A moral win for bullies everywhere!

S01Kcvpm.jpg


But SHOULD we?

NGiB48Dm.jpg


Huh?

Well don't look at me.

NqsMo5Zm.jpg


I know it's something I'd totally do but I was standing right in front of you.

NZmAWFbm.jpg


"Time."

God I've really come to hate that word now.

SUK9lVNm.jpg

OUWOmtxm.jpg


Hm.

y59kLc6m.jpg

rs8Wtkhm.jpg

PYLh7Dhm.jpg


Wonder where that pebble came from?

A extremely weak rock type out for revenge maybe?

...

o3UVkQtm.jpg


Why does something about a pebble to the head during time travel adventures feel...familiar?

Like...I know I've seen it in a movie aaaaages ago but I can't remember which one...

I'll look it up when I'm done here.

jHxZoglm.jpg

t4sbGApm.jpg


I'm sure you're all smart enough to guess what's missing there without me saying it.

IJh0e5Tm.jpg


Great, let's reveal Aelita's her grand-daughter already and charge in.

2ZzpRZ5m.jpg


She's got something to delay us down there.

kPq0Pn6m.jpg


That also counts if we do something.

We could be drastically altering the timeline if we weren't supposed to come back and interfere.

...

Although Eldest recognised me back in Sheridan...so we definitely were supposed to come here at some point so she could know that...

bJmxgLMm.jpg

59V4LUrm.jpg


I'm always strong.

Strong Sean they used to call me.

...

Okay that's a lie.

F0vtlJJm.jpg


I never actually got a nickname in school.

My first name is one fucking syllable after all. What were they supposed to do with that?

You can pretty much just yelp it out in pain.






p87iPMQm.jpg


A new location?

RK4pKBNm.jpg


That means a new capture!

IsnqJHgm.jpg


I kid, of course.

I think I've caught more than enough Pokemon this season.

X4wXbzLm.jpg

5zJYlXim.jpg


OH NO!

Vivian's blocked our path by scattering small rocks around the room!

zJOyKjVm.jpg


WHY WE COULD SLIGHTLY STUMBLE ON ONE OF THOSE!

WHAT A MASTERFULLY BRUTAL TACTICIAN SHE IS!


kkxzzRwm.jpg

Ujiz750m.jpg

vEcp0acm.jpg


Why?

The hell have any of us done to gain that trust?

nn3hgPNm.jpg


Out of all of the Future Gang, I'm the one you've spoken to the most.

And the first thing you saw me do was attempt to divert a meteor with a tennis racket and then punch a newborn alien in the face.

Those aren't normally trustworthy actions.

It's more of a sign that I have mental problems.

8az4T4Rm.jpg


Well nobody's felt how I have either.

Dying sucks, Vivian.

You wake up in a black void and then get sent to a cottage by the sea where some mysterious goth waif tells you to wake up and keep fighting.

...

That happens for everyone, right?

pnyrSbAm.jpg


I can.

Hell being mad at these people's ignorance is like 85% of this Nuzlocke!

mNRoo0Ym.jpg

xZA3vWHm.jpg


I mean sure but that's because the game won't let us stroll into Marble Manor and slit Vitus' throat to stop the calamity.

Which is bullshit really.

tp2K80Om.jpg

MtrWVjrm.jpg


Hah!

d8OuIaum.jpg


Vivian, if I had a nickel for every time someone threatened to eliminate me for standing in their way...

I'd have at least a dollar.

I...uh thought nickels were worth more than 5 cents when I wrote this sentence.

9ofqJrTm.jpg


Huh?

We're going to fight a Golem?

NTJirc4m.jpg

0MWqOdwm.jpg


So...along with her earth sense, does Vivian have command over rocks like Angie does over ice?

Or is it just Angie with straight up elemental powers while the rest get passive shit?

R5KTNu7m.jpg


That being said, we haven't seen what Hazuki can do with Steel yet.

Metal-Bending?

QVeLZRCm.jpg

6G9bi54m.jpg

qSrzTuqm.jpg

vp8MlELm.jpg


Oh good it's almost done.

It certainly took it's time.

XBWDTdqm.jpg


We really should have ran past while she was doing this.

255MHzHm.jpg

z819EGWm.jpg

ORukzb0m.jpg

Km122eOm.jpg


Hey! Don't you backward savages know anything?

That's not a Golem!

That's a Regirock!

Xiw0PgNm.jpg


Specifically a blue Regirock?

Fucking shiny Pokemon aga-

oW9QxKZm.jpg


Hey, wait a minute!

I remember this thing!

dIZuQB4m.png


It killed my Kingler, Gutiérrez or whatever back in Amethyst cave!

So that thing used to belong to Vivian?

83ruvgFm.jpg


But...why did a robot have it?

QGYGTFWm.jpg


And why was it in Amethyst cave when Amethyst cave isn't anywhere near Sheridan in this time period?

EHmudR4m.jpg


Wait, I don't care about that second part. Focus on the random fecking robot having it.

0iCvv6Pm.jpg


Oh neat, it makes the anime movie noises.

That's a good touch.



It's still better than Guzzlord's voice at least.


xtfmk70m.jpg

hwoNrNum.jpg


So who wants to handle this Regi-roadblock for me while I do the important fight against Vivian?

My therapist said I should delegate more after all.

HIqNQtIm.jpg


Well really he said something about trusting others but fuck that.

5ZDunelm.jpg


So how about it, Aelita? You've got the kicky-punchy Pokemon, you'd be a good fit to fight this thing.

FOuwiSfm.jpg


...
Hurry up and decide, guys.

If this thing touches me, I'll have to battle it.

It's the Pokemon version of "our-eyes-meet-let's-fight" rule.

gsPE1Mgm.jpg

dv3KRw4m.jpg


For the last time, that's NOT a GOLEM.

9A9drIbm.jpg


THIS IS A GOLEM!

xfnTC8Fm.jpg


Well...he's a weird regional variant of a Golem that can somehow generate electricity?

I dunno. I never liked the idea of regional forms. They all look stupid as hell to me.

CUKSp4Gm.jpg


Oh stop whining. You're one of the only decent ones.

Unlike fucking Galarian Meowth and "Perrserker".

b8f.png


It's not even that I hate the design, there's just so many other Pokemon that badly need improvement!

But of course, those geniuses at Gamefreak thought Meowth needed 3 regional forms and a new evolution line!

What about the Dunsparces of the world? Or the Luvdiscs? Or the Sunfloras?

Hell make something fucking new! There STILL isn't a dolphin Pokemon!

LYp29B9m.jpg


Thank you, Rosie.

Please start the overly patriotic music while you're at it too.

j4kyPxRm.jpg


Pokemon are being robbed by their future because GAME FREAKS only want to focus on profit and popularity!

vQc37Qdm.jpg


Gen 9 will have yet another fucking Charizard form and even more obvious masturbation bait NPCs!

I bet they'll make it open world but not adjust the badge levels so you have to fucking do the same gyms in order anyway!

And those useless bastards will pat themselves on the back for it!

nE4T0lJm.jpg


Wherefore art thou, Pokemon of mine youth?

Has't the modern era wiped all care put into you?

behKdXPm.jpg


...

cnvdAFsm.jpg


Oh shit right.

We should probably get on that instead of...whatever the hell this was.

qtFRIcbm.jpg


You agree with me about the terrible state of Pokemon, Anju?

For that, I'll put in the extra effort to separate you from Indriad.

And then I'll kill him.

DHj6FcVm.jpg


Cool.

Let's all immediately accept this and go after Vivian.

Y3PRoJHm.jpg


Do you even have Pokemon, Cella?

I've never seen you use any, both now and in the future.

4K2e3s8m.jpg


It's also a singular Rock Pokemon.

If there were six of them, I'd understand staying behind to help but even Melia could handle this thing.

FdjX1Hqm.jpg


EVEN MELIA, CELLA!

6PcDuaWm.jpg


Shit, you should have read how long it takes to cast that spell while you had the book, Cella.

Garufan magic is a bitch if you interfere with it, y'know.

...

ggBldyJm.jpg


Well you will know. I learned that from you after all.

Aelita went into a coma for holding a fucking door open, what do you think the knockback will be for interrupting a region-wide protection spell?

7cerfjWm.jpg

mNtigFkm.jpg


Well you certainly had a change of heart regarding Anju.

Even if you're pressing your back firmly against the wall and standing as far away as possible when talking to her.

But hey.

Not going to knock points off for being cautious.

v2Rm8MRm.jpg


Hell I'll even give you a gold star for it!

ml5PUemm.jpg


There we go.

...

Oh that one Venam gained was for getting herself turned into a statue and kicked out of the story.

I really appreciated that.

LYiL54pm.jpg


It's going to be SO nice of Regirock to just let us all walk past and not even attempt to do the job Vivian asked it to.

eqS6T9Bm.jpg

7rAOT4Fm.jpg


Hey gang!

Sean here, sending one of my classic telepathic messages so I can comment on that last part.

TdLptZNm.jpg


How the fuck is Regice stronger than Regirock? Type advantages would suggest the opposite.

cFWmTkXm.jpg


And how the fuck do you pronounce Regice again?

5eYXWglm.jpg


Reg-ice? Regi-ice? Re-gice?

ijyBu9fm.jpg


Well whatever.

I'm calling it Regi-Ice like a sane person would.

5Vq8BL0m.jpg

MiO3vcdm.jpg

CfJGBdgm.jpg


Is...that supposed to be a reference to why the one you had in the future is a Dimensional Rift?

Why the fuck would that change your Regi's form? It's a legendary Pokemon, not a facet of your personality, right?

Or is that how they work in this story?

4XCVJRCm.jpg


Okay yeah that settles it.

The 'Protectors of Aevium' are definitely just a group of magical girls.

Or as the weebs call 'em "Mahō shōjo "

And then they munch on their Pocky which they say is the best snack to their anime girl body pillow.

XPShSgVm.jpg


I bet if the graphics allowed it, Anju would be doing a dramatic pose right now.

7M7WDjwm.jpg

Wbp1UL2m.jpg

spR8BTHm.jpg


...

l3jO4Jpm.jpg


So what exactly was stopping them from just...keeping their Regi's in Pokeballs?

Gf3rimEm.jpg


I guess being a "Protector of Aevium" makes you take on aspects of the region itself.

The main aspect being "dramatically nonsensical".

EVi2Foxm.jpg


Well now we know why she thinks her Regi is stronger.

Because of the colour of it's skin.

Guess she thinks some skin colours are just better than others.

What IS Jan trying to say here?

GSRSJbEm.jpg

TdP7xFlm.jpg


Those beeps weren't Regice making his trademark noises by the way.

We had to censor all the racial slurs coming out of it's mouth.

1LwQTozm.jpg


If you can think of any actual racial slurs against someone with blue skin, please let me know them so I can expand my repertoire.

Of71v0nm.jpg


The battle as old as time itself...

Red vs Blue.

kTl7p9jm.jpg







Jw8Obg0m.jpg


You gotta come back here and listen to my snappy lines!

Red vs Blue, Vivian!

Like that Rooster Teeth show from 2003 that I definitely watched and am not making an empty reference towards!

zUflEIYm.jpg


What?! It's not my fault!

I didn't get internet until 2010! I didn't see a meme until I was already a man!

24gKRqSm.jpg


Ah wait, we're in the 19XX's right now.

She'll have no idea what I'm talking about.

Just like I have no idea what I'm talking about.

5SWHrkDm.jpg

Gz9iC3qm.jpg

x5repLXm.jpg


Ooogh?

I think you need to work on your war cry there, Leets.

WOmUh7nm.jpg

rycXw5Um.jpg


...

Just like Erin did?

YNrGIKom.jpg


The hell is going on with you two?

Did you catch a disease from living in that dojo?

B3h1gr2m.jpg


ARE there dojo specific diseases?

I'll have to ask a traditional fighting type later...

6oKdRVUm.jpg


Holy shit no.

In case you've forgotten (which everyone else has it seems) we came back to this time for you.

Also fuck that go on without me shit.

OqufGmim.jpg


I'm the type of protagonist that'll carry whoever fucking DARED to say that shit to me to safety just to SPITE them.

PENx4DYm.jpg

Rxg35IGm.jpg

YrRhYIsm.jpg


Aelita...

hu9KHOmm.png


I don't know if you remember but the LAST person who suddenly felt ill and told me she was fine turned into a statue and then eventually fell in lava.

I don't think-

sdY1PGTm.jpg


...

Fine.

0KgrvD0m.jpg

lVcKjONm.jpg


But you better fucking hook yourself up to that healing crystal thing.

I ain't going through a large portion of this game without you again.

I need SOMEONE to balance out the hate.

It isn't fair that I put all of that work on Rose.

GftuuUDm.jpg

DSuDikLm.jpg


It's over, Vivian.

You have the high ground!

uyNAkOOm.jpg

y2Z6VARm.jpg


And because I'm on the fence over whether stopping you is the right idea and my indecision allowed me to get dragged along by the others!

...

WH7bBGkm.jpg


Do you...like...have any bastard children out there?

If so, you can go ahead and off yourself to protect...the region, I think?

That's what the sacrifice is for right? To shield the region?

XbiW9D9m.jpg


Does the Storm-8 that's coming actually destroy everything in the region instead of splitting it up if Vivian doesn't do this?

I'm really unsure which option is right.

xsUJqhym.jpg


She's definitely related to Aelita going by the natural anime hair which after this whole season, only this single bloodline seems to have.

But she doesn't seem to have any children yet.

Does she have a long-lost sister in Johto, maybe?

tCEwDNrm.jpg


Did...did your fiancé also happen to sacrifice himself to save the region?

This whole problem would go away if he did...

gQDNBU0m.jpg


Can you BLAME me? This is a pretty misunderstandable situation we're in!

Not to mention stressful!

syRkxTFm.jpg

o6jkWSEm.jpg


*GAAAAAAAASSSSPPPPPPP!!!!*

X4OkeDRm.jpg


*GIGA-GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!*

20uPvERm.jpg


That's right, Cella!

She just laid the most brutal put-down imaginable!

...

Fooooooor a five year old girl.

5qL2JN1m.jpg

Xx20vnXm.jpg


Ah yes.

Another classic five year old girl line.

anIFMcIm.jpg

uXprAkfm.jpg


Oh nooooo...please don't kill me...anything but thaaaaat...I have so much to live foooorrrr...

VScwOQSm.jpg


Huh.

That's actually a pretty cool line, Viv.

Props.

IFe6P9Em.jpg

HoU3nL3m.jpg


...

5jXz07im.jpg


That's my chest.

Not my back.

d76icSGm.jpg


You've just ruined whatever credibility that cool line gave you, loser.

z2gCx0em.jpg


Whoa, right into it? Not even a VS transition?

Thought you were important enough to deserve one...I've only ever seen Neved once and HE got one.

dbMJ5C2m.jpg


At least you're wearing dry robes this time or else I'd have to change the ERSB rating on this Nuzlocke.

mrt5Sksm.jpg


I THINK we're only T for Teen right now.

The only iffy part is that I swear a LOT more than a T for Teen game.

Leave your opinions on this below if you will, audience.

I shall be returning to the battle now.

6LGMovXm.jpg


Tyranitar, hm?

So the "Protectors of Aevium" use the type their Regi is based on?

That Hazuki girl must use Steel then based on Angie using Ice.

fBoyc7ym.jpg


Meh. That'll hardly affect us.

Now watch Caesar whip and then nae nae.

oEx30Y6m.jpg


Good.

I've raised you well.

Every single dance move after the internet became popular is terrible.

vI7IoAPm.jpg

cVybVcVm.jpg

8mO1PxTm.jpg


Of course it is.

Whip types moves are obviously going to be super effective on Dark types!

0G3K15Ym.jpg


Oh go write a blog about it, snowflake!

mbz242Cm.jpg

GDmxcBCm.jpg

Nuc6gjNm.jpg


Obviously you deserve it being a Grass type and oppressing Rock types with your type chart privileges.

Just Giga Drain the element-based social justice out of him and we'll move onto the next chump.

TqVXWAjm.jpg


But first, some sand.

Courtesy of Sand Stream. One of the better abilities out there.

bfokQh1m.jpg


Okay, Caesar.

NOW you can use Giga Drain.

RyP3K4Gm.jpg


Yesssss...his soul will nourish your wounded body back to full health!

0bD9T8gm.jpg


Or is it his life energy you're draining?

What does Giga Drain biologically drain from them?

Can't be blood...

WEjEFQxm.jpg


Hmmmm...

NOgb6vom.jpg

yIzbaSUm.jpg


NUTRIENTS!

Giga Drain absorbs the nutrients of the opposing Pokemon to lower it's health.

It was so obvious!

WMZcgNmm.jpg


Pssshh. You have this well in hand, Caesar.

Another Nutrient Drain will-

qRQOI3Xm.jpg

CfxFtwMm.jpg


Ah.

Well that's annoying.

Yeah...enough monkey business.

Time to knuckle down and form a flawless stratagem to counter her-

meZzgFim.jpg


No.

I'm not going to tell you that.

86HEy8om.jpg


Why would I need to actually tell you when you've already deduced the plan?

6JcmzVnm.jpg


WE ARE SO IN-SYNC THAT YOU CAN READ MY VERY MIND!

WE HAVE FORMED A BATTLE-BOND, MY POKEMON BROTHERRRRR!


lSVscbrm.jpg

a3wOgDem.jpg

zC6Koaxm.jpg

xeQkLY7m.jpg

MQFqKXvm.jpg


Awww.

I was hoping you'd be so overwhelmed with emotion and mutual trust that you'd turn into a Sean-Tangrowth...

mKF18ZFm.jpg


We'll see what she throws out, then I'll make my decision.

etQDb8fm.jpg

o0hOEFDm.jpg


No.

XKdSEdZm.jpg


And I'll tell the text box the very same thing!

It's a Tangrowth vs a Rhyperior for fuck's sake.

This should be a piece of cake.

i4DoLJLm.jpg


Now show this thing why you're the best Gen 1 Pokemon with a Gen 4 evolution!

vGUfFI0m.jpg


Ah.

Forgot there was someone in the team to complain about that comment.

bG3UHCtm.jpg


Well no matter, Caesar's put in a lot of hours during this run so he deserves it.

Respect your senpai, Zolt.

3mv9dN5m.jpg


Huh.

That was much less damaging than I thought it would be.

What gives? Rhyperior has dogshit Special Defense!

a4fv7ckm.jpg


You can get away with it most of the time though.

Rhyperior's 4x weak to two of the most common types in the world.

LQ2Y9hUm.jpg


Which makes that lacklustre Giga Drain even weirder...

Maybe it's a HP-focused Rhyperior?

Zz4Y8rFm.jpg

DBzl9zam.jpg


It's certainly not Attack-focused anyway.

2BGJSKVm.jpg


Aha! It's probably got Solid Rock as an ability!

That takes a 1/4 off whatever super-effective move hits it regardless of the 4x multiplier.

PNIJ8KLm.jpg


Essentially, yes.

It's pretty telling that it was introduced the same generation as Rhyperior was.

Not that it matters. We'll heal enough from each Giga Drain to weather all it's attacks until it's beaten.

O9PWwZcm.jpg


Which may take longer than I thought.

Well played, Vivian.

You must REALLY want to kill yourself if you're switching out for an advantage.

WHC3PFbm.jpg

iBFIl0ym.jpg


...

Did that do the exact same amount of damage as it did the Rhyperior?

How the fuck does that work?

Neutral damage = 3/4 of a 4x super effective move?

iDxCFZom.jpg

ZTm209Bm.jpg


It would be just your luck to fight to the only vegetarian T-Rex...

Ah what the hell? I'll return you.

bvQloofm.jpg


If only to avoid the oncoming Ice Fang at least.

HMBbzHWm.jpg


Sink your teeth into this, TyrantSCUM!

jAlYB4vm.jpg


What!? You were going to use a Ground move on a Grass type?!

79eJQSnm.jpg


NO!

MY STRATEGY HAS BEEN THOROUGHLY FOILED!

IS IT THE END FOR LIGHTNING BOLT ZOLT!?

dfFhzKWm.jpg


Oh shut it.

Everyone already knows you have Sturdy to survive it.

But I'll do them one better.

C2TeYtUm.jpg


How's that for foresight?

I gave him one of those just before this fight.

Because I'm not an idiot and obviously figured out she uses Rock Types going by her "golem".

5S85GQgm.jpg


YOU FELL FOR MY BRILLIANT TRAP LIKE SO MANY OTHERS, VIVIAN!

MWAHAHAHAHAHA-


M9J8EiVm.jpg

8AEvH6xm.jpg


Ha...ha...ah?

You...fell for it again?

Huh.

Maybe she actually DOESN'T want to kill herself?

kdlHiUXm.jpg


Well no duh, me.

Not like she's been given any choice in the matter. It's either she dies or everyone gets fucked.

...

Wait a second..."choice"...

Wl3em2Hm.jpg


Aha!

Tyrantrum is holding a Choice Band! That's why it used Earthquake twice!

...

yM3tI0qm.jpg


Which I of course knew from the very beginning! Yes!

It's been locked to that one move and can't even touch Zolt now!

All according to my brilliant plan!

O5daEhIm.jpg


My finger is ON your OFF switch, Zolt.

There is a limit to how much robotic sass I can take in one sitting.

MqeCw15m.jpg

3QHQlUkm.jpg

mpQ4Z12m.jpg


Sadly, audience...

Zolt is actually right.

Most of that was just some obscene luck...

DVcimm6m.jpg

Lk5DIBsm.jpg


THAT I 100% PLANNED FOR!

I PLANNED TO BE LUCKY AND GOD KNOWS I WAS!

NEXT POKEMON, VIVIAN!


qEajoGJm.jpg


Ah he's back then, is he?

3xk2Fv3m.jpg


Guess I better respond in kind.

7GvRwzAm.jpg


God, Regenerator is such a great ability.

I'm so glad I snagged Caesar off that SEC in Caratos and not the Torkoal.

Could you imagine what this run would be like having that thing wheezing about instead?

HHpRD9Im.jpg


You know what?

Try Power Whip. I'm curious to see how well his Defense holds up.

ucz5Fphm.jpg

ZmyMj6Jm.jpg


Apparently it was completely shattered.

...

xGaMQkRm.jpg


Wha?

...

...

lL812Hfm.jpg


You don't want to know how many different facial expressions I went through before finally settling on the one above.

y4wmAUXm.jpg


That is the most confusing Rhyperior I have ever fucking battled.

It tanks super-effective Special Attacks...but gets blown away by a physical?

Was it a mutant?

HwsclXnm.jpg


Hey! That's not a Rock Type!

VIVIAN SHOULD BE DISQUALIFIED AND JUST GIVE ME THE GYM BADGE!

axMt9jQm.jpg


Whoops.

I tend to assume it's a gym battle when all the types are the same.

TXFJZxVm.jpg


But clearly I was wrong and Vivian's throwing out a multi-coloured psychic nightmare with wings instead.

Joy.

JqlfeQLm.jpg

XpppUqzm.jpg


You know...and this may come as a shock to you all...

I kinda like Sigilyph's design.

Sure it's weird as hell but it's a unique and original design based on the Nazca lines in Peru.

w0bWjTSm.jpg


Far more interesting than a white-oval-in-bigger-black oval eyed Pikachu clones that crop up every generation.

Mimikyu and Marill are the exceptions because they at least have different typing.

(Even if Marill is the most like Pikachu evolution-wise.)

NfA5KK6m.jpg


Ah here we go.

The classic Stored Power strategy.


AFBm2oVm.jpg


Why don't you clip it's...wing things, Zolt.

With a Thunderbolt!

w9OE52cm.jpg


Ah right, I haven't gotten that TM yet.

Classic Reborn Style Gameplay of never giving the player anything GOOD.

Use Discharge instead.

g2UeeM4m.jpg


...

Are you serious?

I'd fucking take a Shock Wave at this point!

vycL6nim.jpg


DAMMIT! JUST USE WHATEVER ELECTRIC MOVE YOU HAVE!

BRxpoBDm.jpg

MEa06psm.jpg


...

xCt7DXQm.jpg


I'm so fucking mad that it's that one.

1jVUylVm.jpg


There's a couple of "Why the fucks" you have to understand here, audience.

Why the fuck didn't I go to the Move Tutor to change his moves before I came back here?

Why the fuck doesn't the Magnemite line learn more than four damaging Electric moves?

AND WHY THE FUCK IS ONE OF THEM ELECTRO BALL!?!?

HE'S GOT 60 SPEED! HE'S COULDN'T EVEN OUTSPEED A FAT GUY THAT JUST SAW A BUFFET TABLE!

...

oq2ZJTS.jpg


They normally only have a Base Speed of 30 but their ability "Lunch Rush" triples their Attack and Speed in the presence of food.

An Alcremie's worst nightmare...

rocva5Om.jpg


*Sigh*

I've got to remember to fix my Electric type's move-sets when I catch them.

I'm still not over forgetting to teach Gradius a fucking Special move.

WHY COULD HE EVEN LEARN ACROBATICS WHEN HE'S AN ELECTRIC/BUG SPECIAL ATTACKER?!

Oh?

It's not going for Stored Power?

Guess it just plans on melting Zolt instead...

Yeah I remember learning that a high enough heat demagnetizes...

Well...magnets...

It's okay, buddy. I bought plenty.

I'll give you a new one after this fight.

Return and I'll send out someone who can show this wind chime REAL heat!

Okay??

Don't think you really need them though...

You always look vaguely pissed off about something.

You're fucked Sigilyph, on that you can trust.

rpIROoJm.jpg


Bruxish?

Can't...say I expected that one.

Caesar!

You're up again!

Christ, that thing looks weird.

Based on the Humuhumu Nukunuku Apua'a fish, I believe.

OKAY FINE. Based on the Humuhumu Nukunuku Apua'a, I GOOGLED.

Happy?

89H6fVTm.jpg


Fairy? I think?

Lemme check.

54fARflm.jpg


Nnnope!

Seems to be Psychic.

So Psychic and Rock types are Vivian's theme?

...

I guess I'll allow it.

L4cK4l5m.jpg


Oh shut up and whip the toothy smirk off that thing's face.

IHNbYdHm.jpg

hKgHB9sm.jpg


Huh so a Physical Phish like Basculin?

YXpL6brm.jpg


Wow it even has it's own special Psychic version of Brick Break called 'Psychic Fangs'.

That's neat.

FWCBcfqm.jpg

1sjVKWqm.jpg


Shame we'll never get to see it in action though.

NAu0rhEm.jpg


WHAT!?

It was holding a Focus Sash!?

AGH!

It's so annoying when I'm not the one pulling that bullshit!

UFIz46tm.jpg


AND THAT FUCKING TERRIFIES ME!

t4Pxd31m.jpg


LIVE YOU BUNCH OF NOODLES!

IF YOU DON'T, I'M KILLING VIVIAN MYSELF!


piqDq5fm.jpg


Phew.

Too close for comfort.

Uhhhh...

Can I have a sec to make up an excuse?

Got it!

Because what would a strictly tropical fish know about ice?

hNz0b4am.jpg


...

JvnSx54m.jpg


Thank you.

Bullshitting is my strongest and only superpower.

The whole immortality thing is just me bullshitting the Grim Reaper every time he comes to collect.

YmzKMQBm.jpg


Both.

Because fuck you for reminding me and because an Alakazam would rip you to pieces.

Especially if she Mega Evolves it like most people in important fights do nowadays.

Which sucks for me but hey, could be worse.

Could be Dynamax.

UZQ9zy1m.jpg


Shit.

Mega-Alakazam would probably rip most of my team to pieces let alone Caesar.

I was expecting a Fighting type battle here if I'm honest.

5j1jEMsm.jpg


Dr. Zaius looks like my best hope.

Well...my best hope that I'm willing to risk.

XPiH8yvm.jpg


You're probably right.

But I can't EVER have the audience think Rose isn't always the light of hope in my life.

Tr7OcZYm.jpg

nuRG39Km.jpg


Oh quiet down, you.

Go sleep off those horrendous injuries.

zkCSAS0m.jpg


OOH!

Help me, Dr. Zaius!

MZJwjjrm.jpg

LJTjfDkm.jpg


Now let's see which stat is greater...

Intelligence or Wisdom.

FRrQa21m.jpg


That's just your biased opinion, you lofty lemur.

In my opinion, wisdom and intelligence don't matter much if you get punched in the face.

dTDzc27m.jpg


Oh is it now?

Would Sensei Vivian mind donating her Mega Ring after she kills herself?

I'd really appreciate it.

B6sZhgsm.jpg

8ltuiQPm.jpg

udRnW1nm.jpg


Oh really?

4TkXIhpm.jpg


Bet you wish you could do that instead of whatever the hell you told me when we met.

uOWKQ9cm.jpg


Well we could always ask him.

yPbSVKGm.jpg


HEY!

ALAKAZAM!

WHAT'S THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE FOR ME!?

AjsL3cmm.jpg


...

Huh.

C9nDc4vm.jpg


I suppose that's true.

Life does have a habit of kicking me when I'm down.

ks6fJKKm.jpg


Hidden Power?

Guess it doesn't want to use Psychic moves on another Psychic type.

Thank god nobody uses Sychronise, right?

rvnA0gkm.jpg


Well that's not so bad damage wise.

Let's me do this after all.

kIkZFsem.jpg

1FNFfZ9m.jpg


...

WzckPjem.jpg


I really need to replace that move with Calm Mind one of these days.

5qkFkK5m.jpg

Now that Zaius is sufficiently nasty, we can begin the attack.

FywMJsrm.jpg

zEbVgRsm.jpg


MIND CRUSH!

Not very effective did...I think a hair over half of his health bar.

You don't know what you're talking about, Battle Textbox.

Oh wow.

A whole FOUR more damage than Hidden Power.

Colour me impressed.

Only if impression is an extremely dull grey colour though.

MUJ1hpZm.jpg

zT1aeNFm.jpg


And...that's it.

7kWMd6hm.jpg


Well done, Dr. Zaius.

Not every day a Mega Alakazam gets handily taken down by a simple Oranguru!

JuDYpW6m.jpg


FINE.

Not every day a Mega Alakazam gets taken down by a "humble" Oranguru.

pjqiw3ym.jpg


Yeah, really easy to claim you're wise and intelligent when most people have forgotten how I captured you.

P38eJ2zm.jpg


He had 1HP left from Rose's False Swipe and then what brilliant idea does he have?

1f73OvCm.jpg


He Instructs her to do it again.

I mean really.

oT7RxQKm.jpg


Zaius was 5 levels lower than it too.

...

This fight feels like it should have been more of a challenge.

Maybe she should have held onto that Regirock.

tCR0AvFm.jpg


Or she's trying to lose because she doesn't really want to die?

That's one interpretation, I guess...

U4os5KMm.jpg


Why what?

Why we're stopping you? Why you lost so hard?

Why a "humble" Oranguru managed to beat your Galaxy Brain Mega Alakazam in one-on-one psychic combat perhaps?

ASDv3Nhm.jpg


I can only answer the latter two and it's not going to be satisfying to hear.

It's what I always say when I win.

OWEEwyMm.jpg


I'm de best.





hi1fsFHm.jpg

1rDyMFlm.jpg


And that's 1 person I've battled out of committing suicide.

That balances out what I did to Sharon on Mount Valor, right?

j9I1lRDm.jpg


Vivian says "Aye" so I'm in the clear!

pxk1nWhm.jpg

GkzjkDJm.jpg


Because I'm not allowed to make that choice.

...

And even if I was I'd still probably not pick the one that involves someone killing themselves.

There's got to be a sneaky way to scam the spell out of taking your life...

5NHUl8lm.jpg


Could you maybe hold this Focus Sash while you're doing the ritual?

h9TjQttm.jpg


I'd be fucking amazed if it did.

Can't hurt to try, right?

13vYf69m.jpg


Oh god somebody please console her, I'm not good with crying women...

And Vivian and I aren't close enough that I try to smother her with my shoulder so she'll shut the fuck up and stop making me feel awkward.

IX00UhRm.jpg


GOSH!

It's so hard being so empathetic!

uao7LAzm.jpg


Thank you, Cella.

cSLE6KRm.jpg

g5g5UFYm.jpg


But what if she has to go to the bathroo-

HQOdHF4m.jpg


GAH!

vse1XcSm.jpg

Even if someone made it double?

Whoa...

Bye.

EabavPIm.jpg


...

Jesus, that was emotional.

UhACLM4m.jpg


I'm...fairly sure I wouldn't have made that many snarky comments during it.

Even I have SOME tact.

1k4LzoOm.jpg


What the-

DAMMIT STAY OUT OF MY MEME REFERENCE FOLDERS! ONLY I CAN USE THOSE TO VISUALLY ILLUSTRATE A POINT OR EMOTION!

S3QEACnm.jpg


But at WHAT COST!?!

...

No, seriously.

The whole self-sacrifice thing sounded pretty damn important to the future and I'm not sure we should have stopped her.

Gk3ZcZim.jpg


WHAT IS THE COST HERE!?!

rYdcCism.jpg


What the fuck are you talking about? "At last"?

I've saved loads of people.

Don't lump me in with your poor track record, Melia.

Your newfound obsession with saving people because somebody told you "no" doesn't apply to me.

i0McL5Om.jpg


I do it for the right reasons.

...

RIuilqPm.jpg


Usually for rare Pokemon, sure.

But I can't control what they reward me with, can I?

jMhBYrim.jpg

gf3n15Km.jpg


Yes but you didn't steal anything or throw toilet paper over anyone's home.

So she's probably only half-proud.

...

Also the fuck do you mean by; "Wherever you are?"

Unless she's suddenly been cured off-screen, she's exactly where we left her.

In a hospital tube, fifty or sixty years in the future.

zIemMfNm.jpg


Yeah, mind explaining that part as well?

Did you specifically tell her you were going to go back in time an prevent a woman from killing herself and maybe dooming the future in the process?

What kind of fucking conversations do you two have when I'm not around?

hS6rHwVm.jpg

WnnOkpfm.jpg


You...do?

Are you finally going to repent for the countless sins you have committed against me?

DBxRykZm.jpg


Oh...oh no.

It's THAT type of confession.

B0sKS30m.jpg

QW610Cam.jpg


Melia, stop.

I already know what you're going to say.

cVTNJLEm.jpg


It wasn't hard to figure out.

And honestly, who could blame you?
