    When's this getting an update?

    Oh, right. I forgot to tell you guys. The emulator is causing some serious lag to my laptop. Like, a lot of lag. I can barely take screenshots.
    Sooooooo. Until I find a way to fix this, the run will be on hiatus.

    Yeah. Sorry 'bout that, but I suppose these things happen. See y'all somewhen.

    Okay, I gotta be honest with my loyal fanbase. The lag problem was fixed just like poof. All I had to do was download the emulator again. Anti-climatic, eh?

    So, Vini, what took ya so long?
    Long story short? I lost interest. C'mon, blame me for being human. I can take it. I think.

    Maybe it's that I can't do schedules? If that's the problem, well, we just gotta have irregular updates.

    ... Now that I look at it, I never said where the run ends, did I?
    We're not getting there any sooner by stalling here anyways. Let's-a GO!



    image

    Ugly dirt swallower has exactly one round part in its entire body, and that's the nose.

    So, yeah, perfect name.

    image image

    Getting Dank ready for the boat.
    The boat, man. The boat.

    image

    Not the boat. But oh so important.

    image

    I'M ON A BOKE!

    image image

    Infiltration successful.
    Oh man, we're on in-SS-Anne. Never liked this place.

    Maybe a trauma I'm over now?

    image image

    ...
    Le calling it day.

  • ViniVini Posts: 3,599Member, Friendly, Conversationalist ✭✭✭✭✭
    Heh. Working with no schedule. Let's see how long THAT will last.

    image

    Great! I'll grab this stuff!

    image image image

    Then again, them berries are enough.

    image

    As it turns out, the true captain of this ship is PokeAsh.

    Captain "PokeAsh" Obvious, that is.

    image image
    image image

    I intentionally messed the third one up. Yup I did, and you can't prove me wrong.
    Either way, that will be it for the first floor.

    image

    After Wall Destroyer TM.
    It's quite the decent move, too. Maybe I'll teach it to Charmant?

    image image

    We'll want all the healing items we can get.

    ...I'm not playing with a rule that prevents the use of potions, am I?
    Boy, let me tell you, that was not a pretty run.

    image image

    But the actual reason could have been a different rule I used...
    Alright, if I run another DashNet "plays" Pokémon I'll see if I can use those again.

    image image
    image image
    image image

    And done with the basement. But floor 2 gotta wait.
    We be meeting jellies there.

    image image
    image image

    Also that happened.

    Also reminder that you guys can give me orders about anything.
    If you want to see TMs, teach TMs, throws away items, have Penis or Fish fight, all you gotta do is ask.
    Doesn't mean I'll do it, but I sure as hell will consider it.

    Okay, see y'all somewhen!

  • UiomancantUiomancant Posts: 9,964Member, Cool, Flagger ✭✭✭✭✭
    I want you to just go to the captain right now, no being thorough.
    What's a sig btw
  • ViniVini Posts: 3,599Member, Friendly, Conversationalist ✭✭✭✭✭
    We try to go straight for the captain, but we're stopped by an immovable force.

    image

    Mandatory for the following fight.

    image image
    image image

    This is all the preparation we could've gotten. Time to face Jelly.

    image

    Quick reminder that:

    image

    We have an illegal catch (it will be important later);
    If Elvis goes, he must Self-Destruct;
    Fish is useless;
    Penis is just too weak for his team.

    image

    It's three versus four.
    Alright, show time!

    image image

    3 levels ahead. That reminds me of yet another rule.

    image image
    image image

    Off to a good start.

    image image
    image image

    Pretty good indeed.

    image image
    image image

    So, how do y'all like this new way I'm covering the big battles?

    image image
    image

    Four(-ish) panels per turn is enough? Too little? Too overkill?

    image image
    image

    Did I ever say I feel bad when the enemies' Pokémon can't fight back?

    image image
    image image

    No? Well, of course not. I don't.

    image image
    image image

    [Insert kinda predictable Homestuck joke here]

    image image
    image

    Being overleveled is so boring.
    At least Hyper Fang won't hurt.

    image image

    Since he won't ever be able to use it again.

    image

    Whoa, that's a lot of pics. If I'm going to keep this up, better dedicate the whole post to said fight and said fight alone.

    Gonna try it out on Surge, unless you really hated it.
    See you then!

  • ¤RunninginReverse¤¤RunninginReverse¤ Posts: 15,856Member, Friendly ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'd say only do this for particularly important battles(i.e. gym battles, Jelly, the Elite Four/Champion, etc.)
    Warning! Warning! One left in the way

    I like the more images.

    Did you even take damage in that fight? doesn't look like it.

    Exactly what I'm going for, major battles only.

    I like the more images.

    Did you even take damage in that fight? doesn't look like it.

    More images it it then.

    I didn't even notice, but turns out I didn't! Pidgeotto spent two turns hitting himself, Wartortle was asleep, Kadabra missed Kinesis and Raticate didn't even last one turn.
    Such are the downsides of being too strong, it seems.

    (I mean it. We got lucky Raticate was the last one. Nothing too dangerous given the level advantage but it could be a problem later.)

  • ViniVini Posts: 3,599Member, Friendly, Conversationalist ✭✭✭✭✭
    We may be facing Surge next update, so today we're backtracking as much as we can.
    And that's a lot. Today's update is basically just me going through what we missed after Brock, so very uninteresting.

    image

    Someone also gained a level in the fight against Jelly, but I don't think I recorded it.
    Nor do I remember who it was.

    image

    Now we're the captain. Ahoy, ye scurvy dogs!

    image

    Absolutely disgusting. Not looking into that bin either. You already know what's inside.

    image

    Now whom to teach it...
    Our current team has two Pokés who can use Cut: Succ and Charmant.

    image

    See ya!

    Succ has Sleep and Poison powders, Vine Whip and Acid.
    Acid is the least valuable move, but it's still our only damaging Poison move, and can shred enemy's defense.

    image image

    Back to Route 2!

    Charmant knows Ember and Brick Break, which we're not removing.
    So it comes to either Metal Claw or Smokescreen.

    image

    Yeah, pretty tough choice.

    image image

    As if it wasn't enough that adults trust powerful and potentially dangerous creatures to children, now we gotta start the Pokémon equivalent to Jurassic Park!

    Gotta love 'em JRPGs.

    image

    Dank, Elvis and Charmant can learn this. I myself don't really want it now, but if it strikes anyone's fancy, we can come back anytime.

    image

    Alright, time to backtrack.

    image image
    image image

    That's it for Route 3. Now to Mt. Moon.
    RIP, Weed.

    image image
    image image
    image image

    Hey, that's good!

    image image

    Nice!

    image image
    image image
    image image
    image image
    image image
    image image
    image

    Free money!

    image image

    AH! Finally! That was exhausting. To both do and read, I'm sure.

    We facing Surge next time. I'm seriously considering sacrificing someone.
    Y'know, because of Hype Train and Sealed Fate. Might make things easier on the long run.
    And as always, if you guys decide against it, I'll bite the bullet.
    Until then!

  • ViniVini Posts: 3,599Member, Friendly, Conversationalist ✭✭✭✭✭
    It's been a while.

    SO. My brother managed to corrupt his copy of Sun and gave it to me. I did the most reasonable thing and started a (somewhat) BlindLocke.
    Route 1 stretches on forever!

    I'm also adding my custom rules, none of which are currently in use on this here run.
    Say, what do you think? Should I add some more? Only two rules remain hidden, and I'm not just ready to put 'em into use.

    Oh, but more importantly, should I sacrifice Elvis on Surge? He's going down today, Ground-types or not, but before our first intentional death, the least I can do is let my loyal readers have the final say.

    Just to make the decision easier (or will it?), here's what we have.

    image

    One Paz Heal.

    image

    Dig for Charmant and Elvis.

    image

    Thief for Dank and Succ.

    image

    And Mega Punch and Kick, for Charmant and Dank. (Elvis can Punch too.)

    And some Potions, but we can always buy more of those.
    Okay, till the near future!

  • ViniVini Posts: 3,599Member, Friendly, Conversationalist ✭✭✭✭✭
    All right. Time to face Surge. Four panels per round, just like last time.

    image

    You know this was ported directly from an older game when they even keep the mistakes.
    Flying is so much better than Bird. How could they even think of calling the likes of Gyarados and Dodrio birds?

    image

    Is that a quip on how I throw some bad puns at the Gym Leaders I defeat?
    It is?

    Ohm my, Surge, watt is your problem? It hertz to be told that, you know?

    ... Wait, didn't he fought a war or something?

    image

    Ah, right. It's Leader Lieutenant Surge. High Major Commodore Leader Lieutenant Surge. Gotta respect his authority.

    image image

    You all know by now, but sending Elvis here means I must use Self-Destruct.

    image image
    image image

    Doesn't mean I gotta do so immediately.

    image image
    image image

    Fret not, Sonicboom does fixed damage. It's the only move in this entire gym that can really hurt Elvis.

    Unlike Stadium...

    image image
    image image

    Surf Raichu flashbacks...
    Ah, see? One damage.
    And level 26! Not that it matters much, but yay!

    image image

    Thank you! Had he sent Raichu now, our lives would be 14 flavors of Hell!

    image image
    image image

    I'm... Kidding, of course. But it would still make it way harder than it has any right to be.

    image image
    image

    Um, I forget they did that.
    Well, it's not like Metal Claw would finish it off in one turn anyway.

    image image
    image

    This I remember. And now I'm starting to think maybe Raichu first wouldn't be that bad.

    image image

    This might take a while.

    I'll narrate it to you:
    Pikachu Double Team x3
    Charmant misses
    Pikachu Shock Wave
    Cha- Oh dammit!

    image image
    image

    ... Know what?

    image image

    Fuck it.
    Yeah, and Pikachu used his fourth Double Team.

    image image
    image image

    And here we go again.

    Pikachu's Shock Wave does 6 damage. Succ misses Poisonpowder.

    image image

    NOT! Ah ha! I can't believe it!

    Now how many turns till we finally land a Vine Whip?

    image image
    image

    ... That's one.

    45 images? Hey, I'm pretty sure there's a limit.
    On the other forums I used to go, at least, and it was 50.
    We'll pick it up later, folks. That damn mouse ain't going down anytime soon.

    Yeah, sorry to cut it in the middle of a battle, but when you gotta go, you gotta go.
    See ya!

  • ViniVini Posts: 3,599Member, Friendly, Conversationalist ✭✭✭✭✭
    That was plenty of rest, I'd say. Let's get this over with.

    We stopped at that point where Pikachu dodges yet another attack or Succ gets full paralysis, right?

    image image
    image

    Yeah, I thought so.
    I'll save you the boredom that is seeing the same thing over and over again in a stall battle.

    Turns: 7
    Paralysis: 2
    Missed attacks: 4
    Potions: 1

    Pikachu's fifth Double Team at turn: 7
    Finally landed PoisonPowder at turn: 8

    Yeah.

    I don't get this game's RNG.
    It's only after Pikachu all but maxes out its evasion that we land a hit.

    image

    But if I recall correctly, each gym leader only uses one Full Heal per Pokémon, so at least we're on our final lap.

    Now a few more turns of blindly Vine Whipping...

    image image

    Or maybe not.
    See, that's what I'm talking about! Last turn Pikachu used its last Double Team!

    Wait, why am I complaining? We're finally done!

    image image

    Now, the moment you've all been waiting for.

    Elvis...

    image image

    Use Self-Destruct!

    image image

    And yes, it does deplete the user's HP before dealing damage.

    image

    Goodbye, friend. And thank you.

    image image

    Thunder Badge and Shock Wave.
    One gives a 10% boost to Speed. The other is, as of now, useless.

    image

    Our first sacrifice.
    Hopefully our last, too.

    image

    No reason to reactivate Sealed Fate with those two here.

    image

    But I'm willing to take the risk with Apache and Balls.

    Now where can we catch more?

    image image

    I'd like a Sandshrew better, but eh.

    image

    A Spearow, huh? Kanto sure loves its Flying types.
    And now we're stuck with two of them.

    Make your bets people! Who shall prevail?
    Apache? Or-

    image

    ...Right. First of all, name her.
    Till then, see you.

    Also bonus evolution.
