So sorry that this one's a day late, folks. I got profoundly plastered at my friend's wedding on Friday, and then I guess I lost Saturday. And it will happen again, because another friend is getting married this upcoming Thursday! Pray for my liver 🙏

@bhelryss muahahahaha! My insidious scheme worked! I successfully fooled you into telling me cool shit about space! Another victory for Team Rocket! Straight up tho I had no idea that our magnetic field did all that shit for us, holding our atmo together and everything, and now I love and respect her all the more for it. Poor Mars, no atmo and no magnets… that shit’s so fascinating, that that’s the primary problem for life on Mars 👀
Emboar has grown on me since that run, but Tepig is still… so baby, love him so dearly. Oshawott’s actually wound up my favourite starter of that gen because Samurott’s so fucking good, which makes Gen V the first gen where my favourite starter isn’t the fire-type!


@Green Tea sfddgfds you know what, that’s an understandable mistake to make with an Everstone, especially since ingame item descriptions weren’t much of a thing for the first few couple gens XP


@Nebbles I do love big strong frens but… Tepig is just so babey… im love them ❤️


@ponibutts Look, I make plans, and then because I am gay Spite takes over, and that’s just how it be on this bitch of an earth
dgfsdffsf I didn’t even REALIZE I was turning Suze into the accuracy ‘mon… love that for her, though!
Waiting for stone evolutions is kinda standard imo, because most of them by default either don’t learn moves after they evolve or only learn a couple… with some, like Nidoking and Nidoqueen, it doesn’t really matter because their TM/HM movepools are more like moveoceans, but I still mourn poor Olivia the Gloom, who I held off evolving because I wanted Petal Dance, and then I lost her… and then found out that the one move Vileplume still learns is Petal Dance… I am the tragic clown of my own life


@Time Master Eon the urge to plan and prepare is always warring against the urge to Make Monster Fren Huge And Cool XD


@Garnet Honestly giving Suze an electric attack has the same energy as giving Gyarados Earthquake, which I often do. I love giving ‘mons a counter to their greatest weakness because it’s so fucking satisfying to dunk like that XD
I’ve never really used Munna, so I never realized that it takes that long to learn Dream Eater… that’s, like, its whole thing!!!


@songwithnosoul biological sex is propaganda for Big Tech to sell binary code, and cats are out here living their best lives with their funky genetics, and we love that for them! 😻 (I’ve been on a Cats (1998) kick lately, actually dug into the AO3 tag, and the number of fics that take a very interesting and detailed look into cat genetics as the basis for a story about gay cats dancing together is a wonder and delight XD)
If you want chill cat channels, I also highly recommend Jun’s Kitchen; it’s not cat-focused, it’s more videos of a guy making traditional Japanese snacks with absurdly high production quality, but his various cats are always around, sniffing at the ingredients or riding in the basket of his bike when he goes out to get ingredients. He recently got to build his dream kitchen when he and his wife moved into their new house, and it includes several cat trees and walkways for his cats to get around the kitchen and baskets where they can sit and chill and watch him cook. It’s so soothing, I adore his channel ❤️
Is Hoenn really a hot climate or is it just the NPCs around here being highly simpable
I have to imagine that the gentle level curve of Johto has something to do with Meganium and Feraligatr evolving at such relatively low levels… Quilava doesn’t need to because all three members of the line are already powerful and perfect ❤️
God, Tiberius’ evolution really was an accident, but SUCH a serendipitous one considering that I think that Hydreigon would’ve been a run-ender without him! Tiberius deserved one of the coolest fights in the fic and I’m so glad that one came out so well ❤️

A strange Pokémon that claims to be both an artist and writer, yet almost never has any work to show for either.
I’ve never really used Munna, so I never realized that it takes that long to learn Dream Eater… that’s, like, its whole thing!!!
Right??? And Musharna doesn't even get it through level until Gen 8, because stone evo, so your options for Dream Eater in BW (where I used the Munna in question) are either waiting til level 41 to evolve, trading it to a game that already has TM85, or getting TM85 yourself... by defeating Ghetsis so you can access the postgame chunk of the Dreamyard. So between this being a Nuzlocke not bothering with the postgame, and me not having access to a game with TM85, the choice was... both obvious, and not much of a choice lmao.

I have to assume that Pelipper is big enough for a ten-year-old to ride on his back, but I can’t stop imagining him carrying Chu in his massive gullet
Given the bill-to-body ratio on Pelipper, I think you might be right. Dude's more mouth than stomach! Even Sun's Pokédex entry says, "Its spacious beak is large enough for a small child to fit right inside."
...Bit slimy, I'd have to assume.

Sent this to my friend out of context and he fucking died. Worth it

Ah, Wobbs, the bane of all our existences. Glad to see Suze made it out in one piece! I can't think of any super heart stopping moments off the top of my head in my runs, but there have been my fair share of clutch ones - Underleveled Shiny Audino tanking a Focus Blast from Ghetsis's Hydreigon and proceeding to Wreck Shop and all. Story's getting a bit old, actually, been nearly a decade since that run, and it's the one I always point to, alongside the Emerald run where Minun > Gardevoir. High time I get some more material I suppose!

Considered bitter by many.
This take of munna/musharna/dream eater brings back memories of raising hypno at various points. Their 'dex entries make clear that they can eat dreams as an innate ability... but they can't learn the move naturally. Only in LGPE can it learn the move naturally, otherwise it's via TM. Some poor pokémon got done dirty by the developers.

Wobbuffet's there to terrify you. It's a minor nuisance in a normal run and a heart-stopper in a nuzlocke. Just look at that cold, emotionless expression. It knows what it's doing, and it doesn't care. There's the true face of evil. It couldn't be more abominable if it had a Fu Manchu 'stache for emphasis. Destiny bond isn't the threat if you're faster, it's when Mr. Wobby survives an attack and correctly guesses between counter and mirror coat, but if you're not used to them, the whole thing's an ordeal. If you find a few grey hairs in the morning, this is why...

Poor old pirate simps. They just can't catch a break when Chu's around. Don't get me wrong, both plans are clearly ridiculous, but I've always been Team Aqua for life. Not just for Shelly, either, but Archie's great fun, even if they do get portrayed as goofy idiots compared to Team Magma's "scientific" approach. They need a PR guy to sort this out.

It's not Pokemon related, but I've sure had several, several lucky misses in all of my Fire Emblem adventures.... I can't even think of a specific instance right now, considering how play times I replay the games...

W H A T ?
i always thought destiny bond persisted? what do you mean it doesn't???
had to look it up. apparently, if the original user of db gets another turn before fainting, the effect disappears? hot damn that makes it a lot less scary.


i've had a lot of near misses in the many runs i've done. kinda wish i had more screenshots of that happening during my afnc runs, but oh well. i do have this one. this mon just got hit by a STAB super effective attack, and they were supposed to have very flimsy defenses

honestly my scariest encounter was probably when i fought a girafarig in silver with my gengar! i shit you not, seeing the shadow ball do nothing against it made my heart skip a beat. i thought it was just a psychic type, but no

it's worse

it's part normal

and then my gengar lived a confusion with 3 hp

I must've misread, because I thought for a moment that you implied Feraligatr is anything but perfect. Silly me! Of course, they reach their final form early because there's no reason to delay the achievement of such perfection. 💙

In that one Omega Ruby run I did, I had this Manectric named Erik. Consistently one of the powerhouses of my team, but he wasn't great at taking hits. Multiple times, he survived attacks with only one or two HP. I still remember seeing his health going down and down with no sign of stopping, and just thinking This is it and trying to resign myself to it, only for the damage to stop right before the end. The sheer drama of those moments has stuck with me for years after. Erik was a cornerstone of my team the whole way and fortunately survived the nuzlocke**, but boy did he like to cut it close.

**Past tense is just because the nuzlocke itself is over

@Garnet god, if there’s one thing I remember not liking about Gen V… well, two things. Firstly the EXP scaling, and secondly the weird way that so many good TMs were locked into the postgame. What the fuck, Unova?
The Sun pokedex entry… feels like a joke answering the question of how Pelipper uses Surf and possibly Fly, but now has me concerned…
RIP to your friend, glad he enjoys my bullshit by proxy
Tanking a blow from Ghetsis’ Hydreigon is some pretty pro shit—or maybe magical girl shit, given that it was a shiny Audino? Cool as hell, anyway 👀


@Green Tea It’s been so long since I’ve played a non-nuzlocke, I’ve forgotten a time when Wobbuffet were just weird and annoying, not harbingers of doom… 😭
I remember reading that, at one time, Aqua were meant to be focused entirely on nature and the wildnerness, while Magma were meant to be focused on science and civilization, which would’ve put me on Aqua’s side… but now they’re just all wankers :v


@Nebbles I’m a coward, I always play Fire Emblem games on phoenix mode, I don’t want to lose any of my anime children when I still have plotlines to play out!


@ponibutts I know!!! I thought Destiny Bond persisted too!!! I thought that was it for poor Suze!!! The relief… maybe I muddled it a bit with Perish Song in my head? Don’t care, just glad Suze is alive 😭
That 4HP… the terror and power radiating off of that pic is immense. The Lady smiled on you that day... 💚


@bhelryss weddings can be a good time… so long as the bride hasn’t invited her mother to this one 😬 on the upside, though, there’s a ceilidh, and I can never resist a good ceilidh, no matter how much my poor feet don’t like it, but hey, I got nowhere to be for a couple days after XD
God I ALWAYS think that Girafarig is Psychic/Dark, it LOOKS like it should be, and then it’s NOT and it fucks with me. Fuckin good show on your Gengar’s part, though, goddamn!


@songwithnosoul We all know that alligators peaked at evolution a long time ago and haven’t needed to change since… I assume that’s the reason that Feraligatr evolves so early :P
I mean, given his tendency towards disguise, how do we know that that Zigzagoon ISN’T Looker…?
I’m actually kinda annoyed I couldn’t get more Aqua and Magma merch at the Pokemon Centres in Japan, they’ve got great emblems! Where are my pin badges dammit >:(
Wobbuffet is the PEAK of bullshit clause, even when it’s NOT getting crits… I was so scared for Suze 😭
Manectric can be a real glass cannon, I’m so glad Erik made it! What a dramatic boy XD

You know, I always assumed that the hoods helped keep them cool somehow… that they were insulated, maybe, or perhaps kinda light and flowy like the kind of clothes people in the desert wear… but no. It’s 100% aesthetic and damn the functionality! Now where have I heard that before…

Anybody else had a bunch of weddings to go to this year? Until next time, thanks for joining me, and haste ye back!

this pokemon can be found encouraging plant growth in other people's gardens, but can be territorial about the resulting blooms
YOUR DAMN RIGHT ABOUT GIRAFARIG!!! It does look like a part dark type! why is it part normal!!! (why isn't wobbuffet part normal? johto explain?)

yeah!!!! susan's a great little minun

sdlfkjdf apes the aesthetics of fire types

baltoy are probably one of my favorite ground types tho. their little doll faces are so sweet, and one of my earliest ruby runs when i was a seedling involved a SURPRISE: CLAYDOL

i did not have a great grasp on telling who may or may not evolve when i was that young, so it was a real roulette on what would evolve and surprise me. baltoy was one of em

"im hot, maybe i should flood the world" real solid logic there aristotle

maxie: i abhor tardiness
this poor guy who can't wake up in the morning: they put me in the shame corner ;o;

boil his head fsljkdf

i always got the impression that the suits were made of like, wool? so i spent a lot of time as a kid like "damn, hardcore"

rip that poor grunt questioning the order of things not sure maxie won't do something to shut him up

magma grunt 409, who i imagine to be a very young, impressionable activist who got sucked up into this: does groudon have a tail? does groudown have 6 legs like a ledyba? a snout like a phanpy? baby eyes like a chocobo?

i think maxie was waiting for someone to come so he could grandstand

maxie: my poorly planned awakening went poorly! it must be the fault of this nosy rocketboss!!!

not this time at least

honestly no! especially not since i moved to the opposite side of the country...most of the folks in my friend circle are either not particularly fussed about marriage as a ceremony, in a ldr that crosses a ocean, or otherwise just very far from me

doesn't mean i wouldn't go, but there's some hoops to jump thru...last wedding i went to was in....2020? because nobody was taking the pandemic seriously yet in texas

Considered bitter by many.
Team Magma and their plans are far from sensible, so why would their attire be any better? Or the positioning of their guards?

It's a shame there aren't more available "myths" regarding Groudon in the game. It's a game all about weather and the gods that control it, but I felt like Hoenn and Sinnoh had a lot more mythology. Here's a guy wondering if Groudon has a tail... maybe it does? Maybe there are myths about it and how it looks? A crude cave painting or something left behind by an ancient people? It's a shame that they don't make more of it and have the various grunts all wondering about its different attributes.

As for the orbs, well, I assumed that the opposite colour was so offensive that it was the only way to awaken them, by propelling them each into a murderous rage. The problem is that once someone's in a murderous rage, what do you do with them?

Oh my god, you're right! This is his tropical vacation before going to investigate Galactic in Sinnoh! Unfortunate timing on that one, but at least the distraction of two warring ecological disasters affords him plenty of time to manage a clean getaway...

We’re from Queer Eye. Have you considered some throw pillows, maybe some dolls?

Nah, take yersel out for a smoke break, maybe peruse this recruitment literature for Rocket. We have dental! Only seemed fair, given that it was my Pokemon knocking a lot of Rockets' teeth out...
Ah, you love to see such responsibility in a boss towards her workers.

So Thing 1 has absolutely no thought process whatsoever, and Thing 2 tries the famously unsuccessful Nuremberg defense. I don’t think I’ll be offering them any flyers.
lmao I love what you've decided to call them.

XRxHD7S.png


She sure is!
Damn, perfect timing. Love that you screenshot it!

Truthfully, Chu is not so different from Max. She, too, is a tragic protagonist. Just as James Bond is always fated to succeed at disarming the bomb just before it goes off, Chu is always fated to be just too late, no matter how she may wear through the soles of her Running Shoes in a desperate attempt to, just for once, make it in time...
Huh. I never thought about it like that before. Everyone is railroaded to the machinations of the plot, and even the player character can only succeed after a lot of failure because of that. That's an interesting observation! Also one only possible because you're making such a point of separating Chu the character from you, the real player. You have the distance to look down on where she fits in the pattern.

Yes, it was! We’ve had a hard time finding the Lost and Found, though, ironically enough
Haha

Hey, a spark of intelligence! Here, take this recruitment flyer, we could bring you in on some plans that won’t end in failure!
I like how Chu's getting increasingly choosy about who she tries to recruit. Trying to talk some sense into two organizations' worth of grunts at once must be like beating her head against a brick wall, so I can't blame her.

All of this dialogue does a lot to humanize the grunts, and make them feel like a diverse group of people! Even if most of them still come across as really bad at critical thinking and decision-making.

Fate has always decreed that just seconds will separate Chu from Maxie. Or he was hanging around waiting for me (or Archie) to come along just to be a prick about it

Between long periods of dormant slumber, this writer rises again for periods of activity that leave piles of dead fictional Pokemon in their wake
@Time Master Eon I’ve never been good at tabletop games online, I prefer being in the room with folk I’m playing Pathfinder or whatever with because the energy’s great… really enjoying playing Divinity II: Original Sin with some friends right now, though, which is basically DnD: the video game :v


@Nebbles I have one (1) nice dress, with pockets, and at least all the weddings have been a good excuse to wear it!


@bhelryss Honestly I’m still not great at guessing what something will evolve into; I was so jazzed about Corviknight before SwSh came out, but didn’t want to look up too much stuff, so I caught a Rookidee and was just “oooh, wonder what this lil orb is gonna evolve into?” and was so shocked when it turned out a Corviknight XD
Careful, might not be long until you hear right-wing talk show hosts going “rising sea levels are actually a good thing because of all these inexplicable heatwaves” XP
Now imagining Magma grunts sitting around Maxie for a story where he tells them all about what Groudon looks like :v


@Green Tea It would be nice to get more ingame myths and lore… I particularly like lorebuilding when you have conflicts in the piece of media abut what this particular figure is or what they do because stories will have been handed down and embellished in different ways. It would make SO much more sense if Maxie and Archie were full of friendly, non-threatening, healing-nature stories about Groudon and Kyogre, beachside cities have a lot of stories about how scary Kyogre is, folk near the volcano share stories about how scary Groudon is, and the old folks on Mt Pyre are passing down the darkest tales…


@songwithnosoul There’s only so many new staff Chu can recruit at a time, it takes a while to train them up on union techniques, fit them for new uniforms, and teach them to shut the fuck up, which as you can see they’re already very bad at :v
Fate and spite are two powerful forces set against Chu… you’d think the mercurial whims of the Lady would be enough to deal with!
Maybe Maxie hasn’t spent enough time in school and too much time blogging red lesbian/blue lesbian couples on tumblr?

Hello and welcome back to my Emerald nostalgialocke! Last time, we missed taking Maxie out at the knees by seconds, and now Groudon’s out there, doing their thing. So this time…

I see hear the subliminal messaging. It didn't work... this time.

Honeymooners looking for rare pokémon. Scott snoozing. Brendan being a Brendan. Contests. It makes for a nice break, after all of the recent Aqua/Magma plot shenanigans. Like one of those breather episodes you get between story arcs. Technically, when the world is at stake, you shouldn't take time off for contests but, hey, you're a ten year-old kid, why wouldn't you be distracted by shiny things?

NOM reminds me, once again, of why I don't miss the noughties.

Weirdly, I don't have many memories of contests in Hoenn. They were obviously a thing, but I associate them with Sinnoh for whatever reason my brain is using to justify that. I was pretty good at most of the contest games, but I was let down by poor poffins. I could only make them alone, and you needed a few people to make the best ones, so I could only ever go so far. I liked the dress-up game best, there were very few pokémon that didn't benefit from a top hat and handlebar moustache.

Omg me too. I used to love making Poke Blocks and giving them to my mons. I used to pretend Star Bursts were Poke Blocks and that's how I image they would taste.

The joke's been made before but at least it's still funny! And without being gross, unlike the other stuff.

Did you ever get big into the Contests in Hoenn?
No. Not sure if I ever did any beside the ones you need to get Cosplay Pikachu in ORAS. (I also didn't win.) Definitely never made any Pokéblocks before, since I didn't even know it was a rhythm game. Contests are interesting enough to read about, but not really my thing.
