CHAPTER 1: Introduction to the run and rules!

 

Turns out I am addicted to giving challenges to myself... And more difficult ones every time. So, after finishing two Pokemon Reborn monotypes (Bug and Poison) and sharing them with the community in the Forums, I decided I needed a break from Reborn Region! So, I will probably wait for E17 to be released while I do... some other stuff! And the first one in my list is to (finally!) play Pokemon Rejuvenation! I've been wanting to do this for ages, but never actually did it, so it will be my first run of Rejuvenation. A blind run, if you want to call it this way. Well, semi-blind because I had watched playthroughs of Rejuvenation on Youtube, but that was ages ago, and before v9 (and Gen VII) was released.

 

However, because doing things the easy way isn't my style, even though I will do this run in the Normal, Reborn-like difficulty, I will do a custom run! Many people in the Forums are familiar with Danganronpa.

 

D3xAkUA.png                                               7VzxvfU.png

 

It is a Mystery/Crime Case Solving/Horror video game series and anime series, which is quite popular because of the interesting mix of mind manipulation, horror and crime-solving aspects of it. And my favourite character in it, is Gundham Tanaka. He is probably the best animal tamer in the world, with a specialty for rodents. His four hamsters, the "Four Dark Devas of Destruction" are cute as hell, and dangerous demons as he claims! Gundham has an extreme liking for the occult, Dark arts and, of course, in this playthrough, rodents! He can tame any kind of animal, but in the video games and the anime he has been shown to be the Master of his four hamsters, a pomeranian dog, and a bear. Below, you can see Gundham's appearance and even more below, his pets. :)

aODhRgqh.png 0ipzG1Y.jpg zYV0h1Nh.png

 

So, long story short, this is what I will do myself! I will run through Rejuvenation using only Pokemon that Gundham would use! This means rodents, lagomorphs (scientific term for bunny-like animals), one dog and one bear of my choice! Everything else is out of the box! This creates a quite long list of Pokemon, most of which are extremely unimpressive, so this run will be extremely interesting! To myself at least :P. 

 

Also, for this run I will use (a lot) of screenshots, since I want to do a detailed run, and possibly add some gags with Photoshopped pics with Gundham and his Pokemon as they meet, bond, explore and have nice adventures! This is inspired by the amazing work that @DerogatoryTrainer has been doing with his Nuzlocke runs, which I recently discovered and enjoyed with my heart! However, I can't do the same 'cause shyness kills be everyday (:(), so Gundham will fill in for me! :D These screenshots will be accompanied by comments on the game, and I will try to add dialog to my main character, Gundham! I refuse to suppress such an strong personality by giving him a mute role, so my comments will make up for this! I will also upload the videos on Youtube and post the links at the end of every chapter, in order for you to see the battles with more detail, if you want to! Please note that I am a complete amateur when it comes to using Photoshop, but I will be doing my best! So, this run will be an educational experience for me, simultaneously! (and very time-consuming indeed :)). 

 

Finally, for this run, I will use custom sprites of Gundham, made by a really talented and helpful guy, @ken1380! All credits for the sprites go to him, and a million "Thank you"s for his patience with my (absurd) demands, and his excellent work. Ame hire him ASAP, he's got a true talent in spriting.

 

So, this post is only the introduction to the theme of the run and my inspiration/thank you list! 

In the next post, we will start making actual progress in Pokemon Rejuvenation!

I hope you will join me in this journey, in the cross breeding (pun intended, Gundham is the "Ultimate Breeder". Get it? No? I will stop now) of two great games, Pokemon Rejuvenation and Danganronpa! :D 

 

Till then, enjoy everyone! ;):) 

 

Edit: If this isn't the correct place for this topic, feel free to ask from a Moderator to move it where it should be. I just wasn't sure, so I placed it under Team Showcase...

I haven't played Rejuvenation myself, so I'm kind of curious about it

I got a IDEA. What if there's another Killing School Life but INSTEAD of the using the standard 15 wynaut use 7 of the male Main Characters and 7 of the female ones? And it IS pokemon so the trial room and the school is based on POKEMON! Just an Idea but it COULD work if someone make it possible.

CHAPTER 2: Lengthy game introduction!

 

After an uneventful first chapter, I reckon it is time to start doing actual progress! So, double click on game... Lower lights... Light candles cause I'm romantic (and Gundham is occultist, so they will come in handy regardless) and action!

 

CF3GMBvm.png

 

Props to Jan and to the Rejuvenation team for the awesome work they've done. I also like the titles song. Slightly ominous, but you HAVE to be aware of that when you start games like Reborn and Rejuvenation. Cause bad stuff will happen at some point!

The first thing we notice about the game is that we are offered a variety of opening screens. Screens that have the good that they are sub-images of a bigger image. So, they make a collage if they are put all together!

 

vr8UU9Pm.png

 

4BFgBHQm.png ny0c9uzm.png BfiyGTHm.png

 

RqvoxbZm.png

 

It kinda looks like a puppeteer (is THAT Shaco?!!) pulling the strings of three people, who I suppose are in-game characters, while buildings surround them. Even though I get the collage concept, each picture apart from the puppeteer and the three people are omitting stuff, to the point of peculiar. I only knew "American shots" in terms of filmography, which refers to showing people from their knees and above. I guess Rejuvenation is introducing the "anti-American shot" with the bottom introducing screen!

Good art as a total though! But let's keep going! Time to select our main charac.... Wait... No? Black screen...

 

MkFYOuXl.png

 

Wait, story time? Mom, it isn't my bedtime yet! OK, OK stop yelling! Lemme get in my pyjamas and get all ready first!

 

Spoiler

OK, I'm all set, go on mommy, please! Fairytale time!!! *stares at mum with huge anime-like anticipating eyes*

 

Mrab0DRl.png

 

YAYYYYYYYY!!!

 

e2IOndwl.png

 

Probably not as dark as this black screen I'm getting though.

 

JDLARiDl.png

h06l6K6l.png

 

In other words, bamboozling the shit out of people and Pokemon (I'm not aware what the "beings" would refer to in the Pokemon world apart from people, since Pokemon are already mentioned). Could it be ghosts? *glances quickly under bed* No Gastlies spotted, we're good. Oh wait, they are Pokemon too... Confused... *Slaps herself* Back into it!

Foxy lil thing...

 

zpiFqa5l.png

Z17vfr2l.png

 

I'd befriend Zorua! Whom you cannot defeat, befriend him!

 

iUqWdUsl.png

 

Wonder why Pangoro is in quotation marks... Could it be that story has a deeper meaning? Maybe talking about people by making a metaphor? Wonder whether Zorua and Pangoro are people among the characters...

 

VJojZhql.png

 

The last time a golden apple was in a myth, Troy was destroyed because of divine wrath after a mortal's decision. See for yourself. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_apple#Golden_Apple_of_Trojan_War_Fable

This is not a good start, I'm telling you.

 

2mkCHrEl.png

 

Pangoro didn't use Hammer Arm, that's why. Good thing to know it's a fairytale though!

 

rkGYL1El.png

B3TJ9Ejl.png

aMomYyxl.png

 

I TOLD YOU! Whom you cannot defeat, befriend him! Wise fox and enormous karate savage Panda!

 

7twK546l.png

 

Every pod has many more than just two peas, so I'm expecting the turnaround point.

Never trust a fox, they will always come back to steal chicken break your heart.

That's... Plenty far indeed...

 

VRkfWpkl.png

 

Joke's on you, cause it will cost you a friend who spared you by not using Hammer Arm...

 

JZ5qyL2l.png

 

"Malicious" sounds appropriate to describe it.

I'm having... Something in my eye... Poor Panda...

Pangoro wanted to gift the golden apple to Zorua... Zorua pranked him by taking the form of Pangoro's dead mother... I don't know which feeling is stronger, compassion for Pangoro, or rage towards Zorua...

 

WGkapwnl.png

jR5thsfl.png

JiLO4stl.png

 

It was supposed to be a present to an unworthy friend... Also, since when gold is edible?

 

jwj1Lqgl.png

MQm2sQ4l.png

 

Just :( 

 

YJkxBWIl.png

BARMv7Hl.png

 

Well that's why you should think first and then act. Didn't momma Zoroark teach you that?

 

Kdf2teJl.png

 

And that's a moral taught... "Apology can't solve everything... Nor redeem you of everything."- Jess 2017 Ahem. I'll stop. Not really :P

 

gnLSiF6l.png

xff52T5l.png

 

And the quest for redemption begins!

 

h19XEx1l.png

eXxzaTpl.png

 

Wait, whaaaa? I was starting to get into it! This isn't a proper ending!

 

rzdGIEAl.png

 

Also, who is Maria? I'm Jess and the world revolves around me.

 

1CHUeCAl.png

 

Oh, there she is! Rise and shine, Maria!

 

9T17SSfl.png

 

And here's Maria's lovely mom, making breakfast! "I want pancakes, and bacon and eggs (scrambled please) and orange juice, an..."

"Haha, OK sweety, now call dad and we'll have breakfast all tgether like a happy family"

Too happy, I'd say... Something will go wrong.

 

iv7zuPol.png

 

Family picture on wall, with emphasis on "happy". Something will definitely go wrong!

 

Rel67fCl.png

 

Wait, did her dad just stopped himself from calling her with a different name? HE IS THE CREEP! I'm calling it!

 

hmqCKGpl.png

 

After he scolded me for trying to read books written in weird language that refer to Garuf-something and Arceus. Damn cultists.

 

bxJsgqUl.png

kDT8cQ6l.png

 

Yes, this looks like a space-time disturbance (in RPG style). And a vase broke. Yep, it's all going wrong.

 

qSwUbrxl.png

 

You don't want to find out. Flee the house this instant Maria!

 

yprOqZjl.png

3J5uafVl.png

 

Awwww, now I'm getting sad again... :( 

 

JYW0yZhl.png

 

That's what I wanna find out too! And what the hell is wrong with his/her/its hair? And why is Flubber sitting comfortably on his/her/its head?!

 

wiB6Jfil.png

 

Excuse me?

 

tMZqHu1l.png

 

Don't ask me Maria, I know and understand just as much as you do right now.

 

kpITuJEl.png

fgidblrl.png

 

OHHHHHHHH, so we DID have a time disturbance indeed! Dad's guilty, I'm calling it (once again)! But why would he do same thing many times? Trying to affect future in a certain way possibly? Anyways, he's a cultist, help me save mommy and take us away kind stranger of unknown gender!

 

pUyfTlLl.png

 

I'm getting the grip, but don't have enough puzzle pieces yet...

 

HGy74nJl.png

 

But to the stupid cultist who plays the good dad.

 

Hmh5kyml.png

x1fU6Tql.png

 

Tell her to flee this instant!

 

eHF2QWIl.png

 

Well, good job stranger, now you've got blood on your hands. Or you will probably get, soon and surely enough.

 

ySMvHMvl.png

 

I'm screaming "Nuuuuuuuu" with every fibre of my existence right now. You can probably hear it.

 

YtycqcOl.png

 

Please, stop her from going downstairs...

 

7AM6blJl.png

f4rP3rEl.png

4vTDTdzl.png

I see... This is inevitable... But Maria can triumph through this situation somehow...

 

sIiDL1Kl.png

 

That's my girl! :D 

 

3kySLrul.png

8xchVzCl.png

 

I'm sure I won't enjoy what I'll witness...

 

TpV1Yjpl.png

 

Is THAT an altar? Is it the "El Reloaded" we're watching all this time?! And where are the dumb cultist grunts?

 

suDNxUvl.png

6XB5WStl.png

3bLNCuEl.png

 

Get the fuck out in general, not only out of the way, El v2.

 

xaMyQDHl.png

Wait, what? Who said that? Who is in front of her then? And woah, wait a second... Marianette? Was THAT how he tried to call Maria earlier?!

 

jAHbfIrl.png

nClMQWMl.png

rxqpxOul.png

 

Being creepy.

 

kaTf0XHl.png

 

Ahhhh, the light! It burns us!

 

TyaHcRal.png

 

Pangoro and Zorua statues, huh... Like the fairytale... I have no idea what it means!

 

ZQSdWHll.png

fMZH4L5l.png

 

But apparently it was a vision from a different timeline/reality, or a dream, and now Maria is Marianette.

 

g0iuUyTl.png

 

Oh he is too busy? He has many people in his "to-sacrifice" list? Asshole can wait. And you, stupid maid/Arceus cultist can sod off, frankly.

 

NE85wDgl.png

N5BhFONl.png

4yosMkdl.png

 

I don't even know anymore...

 

hYPkScKl.png

 

Oh, well, let's go get killed.

 

2e1pE7bl.png

 

You must be the person just above Maria/Marianette in her dad's "to-sacrifice" list. Well, you're another stupid maid/Arceus worshipper, so I couldn't care less.

 

ncSEIUZl.png

6RXyn81l.png

 

Mom was even higher in Schindler's list...

 

y0TEz9ul.png

 

He's twisted, he'd not manage to tell you his actual name with all this crap he runs.

 

UasoH10l.png

 

No, it is Luna v2.

 

sanP73hl.png

HmWnXdUl.png

wACboEhl.png

 

She's eager to die, God help me remain sane.

 

n29JNbNl.png

 

"I don't like it when I'm not allowed to perform my criminalish mastermind plan explanation, interrupted by my follower who I'm about to sacrifice to a huge GOAT-like pokemon that is my God. GOAT stands for Greatest Of All Time, which Arceus is, Illuminati confirmed, muhahaha"

 

PSPCH58l.png

gOnxZmdl.png

 

Perfect... Gibberish from the first chapter...

 

QrJQUiTl.png

 

Marianette's actual words: "What the fuck are you saying, I spoke more coherently when I was 1 day old".

 

UwOKjKel.png

 

Well, she is somewhere. You don't know where. Unless you do this trip daily yourself and return with the 9pm bus.

 

ViF8VSil.png

 

What calamity, are you gonna introduce that weird language as a module in middle-schools?

 

b4P1Gbbl.png

 

Oh, nice, I'm eager! Nope.

 

Y1go2vPl.png

gaF7EYYl.png

mBbzmVwl.png

gFJgpo3l.png

 

Why does Marianette have no Pokemon to defend herself with?

 

zn0Tjfzl.png

 

I missed a screenshot, but I can guess his words. "You will be safely embraced by our God soon, Marianette. You should be honored." How close did I actually get to his nonsense? Very, is my guess.

 

t2WnbPzl.png

5iJCfvpl.png

 

I'm not posting his gibberish again, NOPE!

 

coXxz4sl.png

 

I can't stress how much I agree with Maria/Marianette/whoever she is!

 

ghagA1ul.png

4E4mCMil.png

XqKbE8tl.png

 

Jesus, Christ, thank God, it ended!

 

Well, this was counterproductive. Didn't even manage to select my main character. Or even get my starter. That's why I feel that I have to prepare another post tonight. At least we got this whole creepy intro out of the way! And got some nice things to keep in mind through the run. And some ambiguous stuff to clarify and make connections with during the game...

Till next time (probably very soon), enjoy everyone! ;):)

CHAPTER 3: Lengthy cruise! (aka "Do I ever get a Pokemon in this game?")

 

OK, let's take a breath, free from cultists and inception like dream inside dream and multiple names and creepy strangers and maids.

Let's ACTUALLY start playing the game. I must've said this 3 times now. I'll remain without readers if this keeps happening. Aaaanyways! Straight into it!

 

lMG42tol.png

 

Reborn Style. It's my first run of Rejuvenation, so I don't dare doing it even harder. Plus, it is already a hard, custom run!

 

MLZBczgl.png

 

Link... START-o!!! (yes, Sword Art Online reference)

 

2IkksbEl.png

 

Hi Amanda. Please don't stress my already ruined nerves after that never-ending cultist scene.

 

pxAYJQal.png

 

And here is what our main character looks like! (Props to @ken1380 for the awesome pixel art)

 

mgmuVfEl.png

 

YES, I BLOODY AM!

 

sfAmn22l.png

 

That was easy.

 

Ig3U6Uhl.png

3knsdIHl.png

 

Maybe not as easy as I thought, paperwork...

 

gCT3Uxfl.png

 

I'd like to move my character please!

 

kC7fKcjl.png

 

Mom! Save me from the visions of past life ghosts and perplexed timelines! 

 

PeAGhDgl.png

 

Gladly, all this time I'm watching cutscenes, my feet need some walking.

 

6f2ledPl.png

 

I'm dizzy mom, not blind...

 

orsXWeQl.png

 

FOOD! Good, my body needs the energy... Plus, I love everything about mom, apart from her food... But saying this to her would kill her, so I swallow every bite... 

 

GMteXahl.png

 

NO, WE DON'T! We have time, but I'm running out of patience!

 

7SI4PmHl.png

5x0bitWl.png

 

Meeting Augustus in the middle of August. How befitting.

 

MuaacZTl.png

cH4qglKl.png

 

More talking... Jesus Christ, found already one flaw to this game. ENDLESS INTRODUCTION!

 

QFSUXVGl.png

 

Mother, I got here to atone for my sins during my time as Ultimate Despair. But honestly, all this wait is filling me with despair! Junko would love this...

 

8EZL859l.png

 

Thanks! I can walk now!

 

QXsX5xIl.png

 

Okay, bye, later mother.

 

pejpxWAl.png

 

GO ALREADY! 

OK, she left... Let's sneak around and find secret places.

Have they recruited Julia too? I begin to see patterns. Cultists and explosions.

Good, I am relaxed now.

 

PPndsfNl.png

4RiG4KHl.png

 

You already got noticed, utter fools!

 

Nb1QWnFl.png

 

You underestimate my Dark Arts proficiency. I can trace anyone! Or I could, if I had my demonic crew with me...

 

ZOenBGIl.png

 

Good information... But they all think I'm twisted, so nobody will take me seriously... Oh, well, let's explore some more...

 

AuW6LGPl.png

 

Cute piano lady and Jigglypuff... Jigglypuff! Bunny-like! I like it I love it I need some more of it!  

Nope? It has a rightful owner? I am obliged to respect this, kind (and cute) lady! Enchant us with your glorious music through this cruise of imminent doom!

 

geMnOORl.png

You certainly gained another admirer today!

 

ntUStxll.png

 

Yes, what gave me away? My scarf?

 

NakCk7Xl.png

 

Haha! Briney! Cause Brine... Salt Water... Oh God, I want to go back to the Underworld, now...

 

cw1NUzal.png

 

You should be called... Captain Obvious!

 

DWJTbOal.png

 

So far so good, thank you, but things are going to blow soon.

 

ICT7avll.png

 

Are Arceus sacrifices one of the best attractions? I prefered the Killing School Trip! And I'd prefer to worship the Monobeasts than that stupid white goat with the waist jewellery!

 

Hr20vzfl.png

VSpN3r9l.png

 

That I should eventually get a Pokemon, but I don't see it happening anytime soon.

 

8Am5cRkl.png

 

PLEASE DON'T!

*edits out the annoying babbling of the old captain*

 

0ZhtcIbl.png

 

Hell yes. You could've just said: 18 Gym Leaders, Elite 8, Level Cap.

 

Xi1JwW7l.png

 

Yes, we're gonna have explosive fun!

 

AsPPRmhl.png

 

Screw him, now I am the captain.

Wait a second... We're gonna sink. And captain goes down together with his ship.

I RESIGN!

 

lvktr3hl.png

 

It was the shortest captain career humanity has ever seen. But damn, this ship is huge. And greatly designed too! Kinda like Apophyll Academy from the top of Pyrous Mountain. I love this technique.

 

4zCpM2El.png

 

I also love the Wingulls... Please drop your excrement on the criminals when you have the chance, mischievous birds. Help me and my mother escape!

 

GKvm0Trl.png

 

Mother, you should believe me... Stuff will blow up... Let's leave, anyway we can!

How do you know?

 

HWZ9Lrol.png

 

Oh, that's what you meant... I like your optimism!

 

u4BuXHul.png

 

It certainly will, if your Jigglypuff sends the criminals nighty-night!

 

EsNmOw6l.png

 

Yes, I am. No way I'd try to talk to captain Augustus again, that blabbermouth!

 

vR572xDl.png

Oh, God, Buddha, Anubis, here he goes again.

Well, you know the drill people.

*edits out Augustus' "speech"*

Heeeeeeere we go... I WARNED YOU ALL! But who would listen to someone with my devilish appearance!

Oh, Grunts! And I STILL have no Pokemon! Excellent!

Not going anywhere without mom! But having no Pokemon to defend myself isn't helping...

Just pointing out how confusing is a dialog between two people when they are both addressed as "???"... Mystery lady could have two instead of three, for the sake of being able to tell who speaks without having to make deductions...

Lights out of order, holes everywhere, plants down. Good, we're sinking. AND I'M NOT THE CAPTAIN ANYMORE, GODDAMNIT! Why would you send me here?

 

gUZO0Qul.png

 

And what the hell are these tentacles of the abyss! Abominations, I say!

 

b5WQGCAl.png

 

Yes cute lady...

 

hDD2rsdl.png

 

I just wanted a Pokemon... Please... I will perform demonic rituals that don't involve sacrifices for you in reward...

Sell me your Jigglypuff, PLEASE!!! God, I know what despair is now. *spirals spinning in my eye pupils*

Seriously, I didn't sign for this... I was told no hentai would be involved...

Yes, for the someone that criminal Team wanted to abduct!

 

QrJf8gql.png

 

Oh, great, thanks...

Well, I'd work something out with Death himself. maybe he'd even give me a Pokemon!

 

b2k3wzKl.png

 

It's not working, is it?

 

kUwUQTYl.png

 

Yes, I knew it.

 

3zew8BGl.png

 

*nods*

I'm not the person you'd want around to console you. I'm not good at consoling people by lying!

 

W5O27Nol.png

 

I'll be honest Augustus, I'm not! Can you actually... DO something?

 

SfZ1BKYl.png

 

Aevium criminal organisation. I need a name for that.

 

PMtWCm0l.png

 

Where is Mother, captain? Speak up.

Stop.being.captain.obvious, please...

I know! Now give me useful information!

pLrW2vZl.png

 

I saw them, they can't really beat water pressure... It's reasonable.

 

rOO7wgdl.png

 

Indeed! But, where is my mom? Seen a pink haired sweet talking woman around? She could be a K-Pop singer!

And I thought that the tentacles "seemed harmless". I can see how harmless they are!

 

SQWuKVgl.png

 

Good thought, I'll go kick the guy that's preventing us from entering aside.

So, we can either try to be saved or just wait where we are to be drowned or abducted by tentacles. PICK ONE!

bouSUYYl.png

 

Was that a fucking Deoxys?! I quit. I don't need a Pokemon, I need my bed and a blanket to snuggle under...

 

jgiUg1Dl.png

 

MOTHER! You're unharmed!

And you have a Sylveon, Fairy trainer it is, Pink hair+Sylveon, I get it!

 

e6zayMBl.png

 

you?" (screenshotting too fast!)

 

CS3zilyl.png

 

That Gothitelle did an awesome job at not moving me at all! Turns out it was malfunctioning indeed after all!

Ohhh, the confrontation!

 

MtmHSg2l.png

 

Did she just ported in through some weird technique? I need to learn the mysteries behind this method of transportation!

 

XCDenkHl.png

 

What the hell do you want? Say it already! This is lengthy as hell already! It's borderline non-Pokemon anymore! More like a Visual Novel!

 

o13Unfzl.png

 

....

I can't even comment on this question. As if this isn't obvious.

 

AS0WqB6l.png

A8fd6uil.png

 

Are we gonna keep this charade going? Pretending to not knowing. Cause I am a busy person.

 

M5QMsegl.png

 

AT LAST! We know now that they want to abduct mom. Wait, what? No, you aren't having her!

 

sSXwM6Ol.png

 

Why would I be, I don't even have a Pokemon... I'm practically weaker than Youngster Joey and Bugcatchers at this point. 3 chapters in. This is a bit embarassing.

 

eLzggzfl.png

 

AND I get insulted in my face.

 

Adf5epbl.png

aB8iUPPl.png

8GK2E1al.png

 

Quite ruthless, I will enjoy fighting against them.

 

rc8U4efl.png

emHnd5Hl.png

2H02Xbhl.png

 

I have no 'mon to fight and we are so heavily outnumbered that mum calls her Sylveon back...

 

K0teFw0l.png

 

To offer them to me and save me... Wow, my mom is amazing!

 

hMnBHUAl.png

 

*sniff*

 

FZFJYqCl.png

Hn9yzRzl.png

 

OH GOD! Wtf is this Deoxys collection? They are clones? They must be!

 

9F3oBOUl.png

 

I heard a noise of something cracking...

 

1Zg21SHl.png

 

Again, the dialog between two ??? people...

 

HIvolAgl.png

UwY1aydl.png

 

Woah! Well, Deoxys are not an issue anymore... Thanks Piano Lady, I love you!

 

GezosCcl.png

 

Awww, we already dedicating songs to each other? I have one for you as well...

 

Spoiler

 

 

2PPO2nQl.png

 

I will try! Thanks to you and mom! Not to some captain who is sinking in his misery and exhausting the ship's entire stock of alcoholic beverages...

 

o0068hEl.png

cQVydVul.png

 

Awww, arrested or killed... I hope we will save her, or even just reunite with her later in game! Best character so far! Crashing Deoxys with a piano is pretty badass in my book!

 

R2lr6n2l.png

 

Errr... escaping?

Who the hell are you anyways?

 

hXi8vDzl.png

 

No, but I thought I'd not see you again in this scene!

 

uJXusDGl.png

 

Little...child... Insolent! You are talking to Gundham Tanaka, the Supreme Overlord of Ice and I will make you regret you disrespectfulness! (when I get Pokemon, that is...)

 

ddmmF6sl.png

 

Blah blah... A Tanaka does not surrender!

 

a0Ndbqxl.png

 

Wait... Am I getting rescued by a random Talonflame?

 

pYJqxw3l.png

hJJbdM1l.png

 

Yes! And it was so fast, I didn't even manage to take a proper screenshot! :o:D 

 

HADRWWOl.png

 

When you do, I will be strong too... Good luck with that!

 

rb6RA5xl.png

tf21SoOl.png

tiqGSlyl.png

 

Well, do stick around then! Don't leave already! How about a bourbon? I bet captain Augustus will treat you to some as you go down!

Oh, I am at an actual location! Oceana Pier! aka the port where S.S. Oceana should arrive to...

*Meanwhile, in the air...

 

KOVt0chh.png

 

KQJkMtZh.png

 

My mood when I arrived was a bit fractious, I have to admit....

 

vDk0Gbll.png

mQvBWsil.png

yk1Q6bUl.png

 

Red hair, Talonflame trainer, she is a Fire type trainer... And a quite strong one, I deduct by Talonflame's speed!

 

9OQw9wRl.png

 

Sadly, yes...

 

9hwa9orl.png

 

Thank God for that, I'd not stand another lengthy dialog... Seriously, this is a great Visual Novel so far!

 

xcX1slBl.png

 

Team Xen is the name then! At least we can call them something other that "Aevium's criminal organisation" now! Avoiding lengthy stuff help me repair my body and mend my mind after these introductory scenes!

 

ohEmfPHl.png

 

Yes, and I am indebted to you.

 

lZXvJuYl.png

 

A Fire type trainer. Named Tesla. Why isn't she an Electric or Steel type with such a name?!

Maybe because an Emolga wouldn't be able to lift me... But what about Skarmory, huh? HUH?!!!

 

0oGeGnZl.png

 

I know, it has sunk in my mind too, can we stop repeating it?!

 

KMgFe1hl.png

A9Rp6UJl.png

 

Yeah, she'll be fine, not like she got kidnapped by Team Xen.

 

aATiDlSl.png

 

They had an army of Deoxys clones! How MORE competent than THAT can a criminal organisation be?!!!

 

Dhq34iwl.png

Sy8ebc2l.png

 

Then how you can be so sure that they aren't the most competent group out there? I saw them in action, let me judge what they are and what they are not!

 

VMcy5ril.png

 

Yes... They bit quite fiercely...

 

EPHiSRpl.png

 

Yes, it has, the ??? lady said that it is time that everyone stops considering them harmless.

 

ZNwoBexl.png

 

Yes... Peace and quiet, at last... I'd love to have mom around though...

 

CKvPFwtl.png

 

My first  and only chance to get a Pokemon!

 

pgQJpNCl.png

 

I didn't like that "may be". I didn't like it at all...

 

sZYCNqOl.png

ZZYnn3Sl.png

 

Karma it is, then...

 

4zedFADl.png

 

And work hard. And have a Pokemon.

 

axrGeY8l.png

QvS8Bxpl.png

7knvhzrl.png

VpUVurZl.png

 

Why, it is just a Talonflame, not a Concorde that came out of retirement.

 

QRWvaFNl.png

xgvFC2Ll.png

 

OK, maybe I was wrong about that last one!

 

And, with this, it is high time I concluded this chapter! In the next chapter, (at last!) I will get my starter, and roam around the City, exploring and adding members to my squad!

And I hope it is the last time that I say "we will get some real action"... 

I apologise for the long introductions... But I blame the game, not myself! I had to do these, since it is pretty much a blind run!

 

Till the next chapter, enjoy everyone! ;):)

The story looks cool but good god it looks like that is taking forever.

You can scroll through it... It only seems like this because it is two endless introduction scenes, one after the other. They could be shorter imo. It's annoying to not get your starter for SUCH a long time after starting a game. I know I can get a mod to go straight for the game's start, but I haven't played it before, so I wanted to do it properly. I'm sorry that you didn't like it. :( 

I don't think it is that bad though... Just a few comments with my thoughts on game are included.

Yes! I love how you're having fun with what's going on in the game. It's very entertaining. ^_^ Can't wait to see what the sprite looks like btw.

Well, now you can check out that sprite, as I promised :)

Damn, that's an intro and a half

It's actually 3 introductions, because Rejuvenation is needlessly lengthy at start. It will get better. I'm sorry :(

Good first part! I'm looking forward to seeing who you choose for your starter!

Thanks :) 

The second and third chapters are too lengthy and mostly uneventful due to needlessly (imo) long cutscenes. But it is going to get better starting tomorrow, when I will work on the City exploration after getting my starter! :)

Nice to see another playthrough. BTW, there are missable cutscenes in Rejuvenation I don't know if I scrolled through or you actually missed it, but there was the possibility to eavesdrop a conversation between your Mother and another woman in the cabin.

Ohhh, I must've missed that... Damn, that ship was like a maze... Thanks! And I'm sorry for having 3 uneventful chapters in a row. Will get better now that the introductions have finished :) 

 

Edit: @Lord C I started it from the beginning and didn't find this sequence... However, it does ring a bell, maybe it was in an older version and got changed now? I am not sure.

You make them fun though. It's like you're actually talking for Gundham. Probably not anything like him but you get what I mean.

It is somewhat like him in certain spots! Wherever it's occult/dark oriented, or he refers to himself in 3rd person... It's what he'd say! :)

Found it. When your mother's room is locked and before you talk to the captain, head to the room left to your mother's. There will be marks near the right wall at the top of the stairs.

Ohhh, thanks for that! I only tried to interact with the tile, didn't think about interacting with the wall in front of the tile! I will screenshot the sequence and add it in the beginning of the next chapter for completeness! :)

Woah that's a lot of screenshot :D, but even in this way you are able to entertain me ;). Anyway, i have to say that the sprite looks really nice and it is well done :D
