  2. Hello and welcome to Vero's ghost monotype run. I'll be running through the reborn kicking ass and taking names with the help of the dead (are ghost types dead?). Follow along with the adventure here. Can't wait to kick Lin's ass. I will be recording all the important battles and posting the videos. Please enjoy those. Rules: I will be only getting pokemon naturally available through reborn and only ghost types. However, the pokemon that are available by egg chance, I will be trading in if I don't get a ghost type. For example the mystery egg event, if I don't get a phantump or gastly, I will trade them in. I will be using the MOD pack for the quality of life changes, such as no HM slaves. Also no items in Battles items in battles, that includes healing, status healing, and revives. Held items allowed Table of Contents Chapter 1: The Haunt Begins Chapter 2: The First Ghost Chapter 3: Finding Corey Chapter 4: Gangs and Ghosts Chapter 5: Shadee Affairs Chapter 6: Empty Victories Chapter 1: The Haunt Begins We are starting off the adventure after the railway accident, ya we don't give a shit about all the other passengers, we got pokemon to catch. Ame hands us our first pokemon, and captain of our team. There is only 1 ghost type available before the 1st gym, so we pick up Rowlett, who is the captain of our team, Nickname Owlit. Hes going to have to hard carry us for the first part of the journey since there aren't many ghost types available. No pressure Owlit, no pressure at all. Its not like the fate of the world depends on you or anything All right we kick off the adventure by whooping every trainers ass in opal ward. We head over to the Peridot ward and whoop every trainer here too. Owlit is a beast. He reaches Level 17 and evolves into Dartrix. We meet our arch rival Fern, and talking never solves anything so we battle him. Video below: We make short work of him and head over to meet Julia (1st gym leader). We team up with Julia, Fern and Florinia to take out a bunch of team Meteor at the mosswater factory. The battles were too easy for my boy Owlit so I wont expand on how he 1 shot everything. Big moment now. We head to the first gym and take on Julia. Owlit is now level 20, at the cap already (had to use a common candy to keep him down). Hes ready for this. Julia battle video below: Start off by spamming ominous wind on minun, hoping for a stat boost. Doesn't happen after 3 tries though. Minun faints, leaving Owlit with 80% HP. Razorleaf 1 shots voltorb. Plusle comes out and I start spamming Ominous wind again. Finally get that stat boost. Now Owlit is deezed, and massacres the rest of Julia's team. Our first Badge is dam sweet and we pick up Tm Charge beam from her too. Thats the end of Chapter 1, stay tuned for chapter 2.
  3. Here we are guys. Here. We. Are. We are finally here. Our adventure through the Reborn Region has begun today. I'm so excited for this and apparently a lot of you are too. Only a couple of things to announce. Whenever I catch a Pokemon in the episode, I will tag you just in case you wanna see it. Hopefully this won't be annoying. And the only other thing I have to say is... vote for what I should do. Like I said, this is our adventure. Not just mine. Please choose which ever your little hearts desire. So let's get this show on the road shall we! (Btw if I miss choices, please let me know so I can put it in. Thank you!)
  4. Hey! It's me! J-Awesome_One! It's finally here! YEA! IT'S FINALLY HERE! My Mono Type Run of Rejuvenation is here and if you all have checked the title of this thread, then I'm pretty sure you know the typing that I'm using. And if you don't, well it's gonna be on the title of the video so you will all know! Actually, I'm prob gonna just say it on here... ANYWAYS, let's not waste anymore time! The next thing I post on here will be... Episode 1... POKEMON REJUVENATION BUG TYPE MONO RUN!
  5. Before I say anything, I think this is the correct place to post this. It's basically a continuation of another thread I made a year ago. Anyways, HI! What's up? It be me, J-Awesome_One! This is basically a continuation voting poll part of the original thread. (Which I will post at the end of this) Now you may look at this poll and be like "Well what the heck? The options are only Option #1, Option #2, etc." and you're correct. You're voting something completely blind but I know what it is. The options here are what Bonnie will catch when I finally do my written story of her in Reborn. Originally, I did add this question on the original poll but... Idk. It just felt weird to add a question to a thread I made a year ago. So I scrapped it from there and am doing it here. So enjoy and here's the thread this is made for. Before I forget, I'll close the poll here when I start the run. Enjoy! I forgot to mention that each Option has 3 Pokemon within them. So Option #1 has 3 Pokemon, Option #2 has 3 Pokemon and so on and so forth.
  6. Hello! this is my first time really posting here so if I have done something wrong please let me know, anyways as the title says im stuck in the meteor hideout that you get kidnapped to after storming the devon corp base I brought with me a decent number of potions initially but all the fights completely exhausted them and now I have no way of getting more as I try to figure out a way to beat ZEL, his team goes down fairly easily with what I have but I have nothing that can fight that magnezone without just getting destroyed so does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do? or am I stuck forever? Current team: Blastoise lvl74: moves: Surf, Flash cannon, Rock smash, double team Mamoswine lvl78: moves: Earthquake, Blizzard, Double team, Ancient power Chesnaught lvl67: moves Seed bomb, Spiky shield, Bulk up, Brick break Starmie lvl72: moves: Hydro pump, flash, power gem, psychic Crobat lvl76: moves: Cross poison, Haze, air slash, Leech life Alolan Marowak(no thick club) lvl67: moves: Bonemerang, Shadow Bone, Flare blitz, flame wheel Thanks for trying to help in advance!
  7. Hello I'm doing this here because this a Reborn run. Seems appropriate to make a topic on the Reborn forums. This is basically a play through of E17 . I go into more detail on the Nuzlocke forums, so I'll give you the link below. Thank you for checking this out, and I hope you return when the run kicks off in the new year. Link
  8. Hey everyone! It is I, Awesome_One here! I’m excited to tell you the dangerous adventure that someone we all know from Pokemon will be going on. You know, X & Y has to be 1 of the best Pokemon Series out there. The cool story. The bad ass scenes. And of course, our beloved main characters: Ash, Serena, Clemont and Bonnie. We all know that Ash took his adventures to a new region called the Alola Region. Serena decided to journey to the Hoenn Region. And Clemont had gone back to Lumiose City to continue being the Electric Type Gym Leader as well as continuing to being an inventor. But Bonnie… She just went home with her brother. “Whatever happened to her?” you might ponder. Well luckily, I can fill you in. But before I can tell the story, I have to go over what’s been happening with Bonnie over the past 4 years. So enjoy, relax and lets see what she’s been up to. Prologue Part 1 - Worried Big Brother Prologue Part 2 - Espurr: Forgotten Remembrance Prologue Part 3 - Flabebe: A Reason To Smile Prologue Part 4 - Lapras: 1 Girl Defense Force Prologue Part 5 - Tyrantrum: New Family Bonding Prologue Part 6 - Phantump - Too Shiny Popular Prologue Part 7 - Mystery Destination Selected! So this is how her adventure begins ladies and gentlemen. She’s now 12 years old, has a full team of Pokemon that she had befriended years ago and will be headed to the Reborn Region. How will her adventure pan out? Stay tuned and find out next time! Current Team
  9. Hey everyone! So not much to say here other than this is where I'll be posting my videos of my playthrough of Pokemon Empyrean. Hope you all enjoy them!
  10. Hi-ho fellow Reborn players. Or something. Seeing as how this game will probably have me swapping mons a lot as it gets further in, I figured it might be fun to document the team after winning important battles, maybe write about them if they were interesting. That said, I'm currently in the Beryl ward, so the first couple will be posthumous. Or something. Oh, and my naming scheme is Power Rangers Pengu Force. Definitely. Gym 1 Team: Pengu Johnny Pengu Heart Pengu Purple Pengu Yellow Pengu Splash This one was relatively uneventful, with the caveat that Zigzagoon's Mud Sport (that I hoped would just weaken attacks) destroyed her gimmick! After that, Joltik and Grimer were able to clean up until Electrode, which I managed to poison and stall out. Gave a pretty good idea of what to expect going forward, such as reasonable pokemon levels *cough* Insurgence *cough* Gym 2 Team: Pengu Johnny Pengu Heart Pengu Purple Pengu Yellow Pengu Shine Compared to the first gym, this was incredibly tense. I had no idea what the desert did going in, but it ended up helping me more than her. Pengu Heart stole the show once again with a powered up Pin Missile and double-power Sand Attack. It was smooth sailing until the Ferroseed, whose Telluric Seed made it nigh unkillable until I scored a lucky crit with Purple's Mud Bob. Following that, Yellow managed to Thunder Wave the Breloom before going down, which allowed Delcatty to Zen Headbutt Paraflinch the thing. In the end, however, that Cradilly was the real monster. I was running low on potions, and was completely reliant on maxing his accuracy debuff and praying the Prinplup got Metal Claw attack boosts. After about 15 minutes, it ran out of recovers and went down once and for all. This may have been the single most intense gym battle I've had in a non-nuzlocke, I was full clench the entire time. Definitely way more attached to this Linoone than I thought though, figured I'd dump it past the first gym but it keeps coming through! Assuming this isn't the wrong board or something I'll probably keep posting after gym battles, it's pretty fun to recount these intense battles!

    Pokemon Full Moon Reaction Run

    "Mumble mumble mumble" Hmm? Ohh. A camera! Well... a camera app on my laptop but a camera nonetheless! Hi everyone! It's me! J-Awesome-One! You all ready to have some fun? I know I am! Let's just hope murder doesn't happen in this series!… Wow… I brought down the mood with that didn't I? Ohh well. Cue the music for this 1st chapter of the 1st season as well as the title card! Despite this only being an introduction and not really diving into the game yet and also not relating to anything in this... It still sounds epic. Shut up! So as I've said before, I'm J-Awesome-One and I'm... I'm... What the fuck...? Umm... Ahh yes. Now I remember. Those 1st 3 pics I took were over my parents house. And right now, I'm over my gramps house. And I also took a shower... You all believe that right? Ok. Good. So expect good lighting in some of these and the others... Horrible lighting. So I'll be doing a normal run of Pokemon Full Moon. Except now you'll be seeing a lot more lovely pics of this beautiful face. It's cute, right?... Right?... RIGHT?! Jesus Christ. That even scared me. I don't think that's a good thing though. Anyways, back on topic. Normal playthrough of Pokemon Full Moon with reaction pics. Now I have played this game before but it's been so long since the last time, it's basically a blind... Semi-blind... a "I somewhat know where to go and what to do but I don't remember what people say in this game" run. But in this game, you don't play as yourself. You play as a teenaged girl named Luna. No. Not from Reborn. So, I'd like to introduce you all to LUNA! Hey there Luna. How are you doing today? Yep! And I'm excited for it. Aren't you?! Fucking bitchy ass cu- Nothing! Nothing! I was about to say nothing! Holy moly you're loud as fuck! I'm glad you wanna know. So 1st of all, I'm gonna be in control of your actions and- Well I'm gonna control where you run to, who you talk to, whether to do good things or bad things. You know? Stuff like that. It's happening whether you like it or not. So shush! Anyways, as I was going to say before being SO rudely interrupted, I will also decide what she uses on her team. And unlike all my other runs, I'll prob have more than a 6 mon team going on he- Don't care. But anyways, that's really all I have to tell you on how this whole adventure is gonna go. Any questions from you Luna? Bye Luna! See you soon! Can't wait to be best buddies! Well, that was all I really had planned for this little intro thing. Ohh. I would like to say this though. With how many times I had to take and also retake pics of me took a lot of time but it was worth it. I had fun. But I am just saying this as a warning. This is probably not gonna be an everyday thing. I'll try to aim for at least once a week thing. Probably multiple if I feel like it. Umm... I think that's all I needed to say. I hope you all enjoy this when I officially start it sometime this week. Hell. I might stay up later than usual to at least have a new 1 up tonight. But anyways... Bye everyone! See you all next time! Phew. I'm glad that's over with. Man my back's killing me. I gotta stretch. Ummm... What are you all still doing here? Didn't I say like bye and all that? What? You want more right now still? But I already told you all what I was doing? What more can I do right now? Ugh... Fiiiiiine. I'll go for a little more. I suppose I can talk about how this run came to mind. And it's all thanks to this glorious bastard right here. @DerogatoryTrainer This dude is so freaking funny with his Reborn and Rejuvenation Reactionlockes. (FYI, mine is not gonna be a nuzlocke.) I swear to Arceus though that he's so funny that he made me cough up all 3 of my lungs. The doctors were also surprised I had 3 lungs but they were successful in putting them back into their original places. Although, now I owe the hospital $300. And yes. That is a surprisingly cheap bill for something so life threatening. But I am also cheap and also don't think that it was my fault so Mr. DerogatoryTrainer... Pay up the $300 soon... Naw. I'm just kidding. But he's really good at what he does. I'll even put a link down to his stuff so you all can get there faster. I know. I'm such a nice guy for doing that. But anyways, that'll be the end of this post for now. Bye everyone!

    So this is where I shall be posting my videos of my Pokemon Clockwork playthrough. I'll give my thoughts and stuff on the episode and then well yea. If any of you wanna ask me something, feel free to do so. I love answering questions!
  13. So this is a new game I came across while looking at the games Mr. @ProjectIceman was playing on his YouTube channel.

Swalot 49. Delcatty 50. Lycanroc Dusk 51. Slaking
  15. As the title says this thread will detail my adventures in Ground Types Only. The rules are simple enough: Only Ground types and Pokémon that will evolve into Ground Types are allowed for any and all Trainer or Boss Pokémon Battles. Pokémon of other types may be used for breeding, capturing or getting items. I'll mostly cover the important battles and skip over all the moving from point A to B-stuff. Screencaps will mostly be put in Spoilers to cut down on length. With that out of the was let's get right to it! Chapter I: One Mon Army First things first: protagonist and name This time I decided to go with one of the female protags and since I majorly suck at creativeness she gets stuck with her default name. And more importantly: our starter! Damp isn't a particularly useful ability, but that's easy to take care of. Those measly 8 HP IV are bothering me a lot more, but oh well. Though I've got a feeling Speed will be the greatest issue in this run. Moving right on to our first two Rival battles: Cain's Nidoran misses two times with Scratch thanks to Hustle. Meanwhile Mudkip already knows Water Gun thanks to Gen VI, so this is an easy battle. Victoria... she has a Tepig, so that battle went pretty much exactly like you would expect. With that done and after getting our Pokémon Trainer Starter Kit ™ it's about time to move out and beat up a bunch of random trainers for their lunch money experience. It's Raining outside, which helps in quickly getting rid of enemies. After a number of battles and LevelUps we soon reach our first destination, as well as our first obstacle: a Grass Type Trainer - cue battle VS Swag Jockey Fern All in all, that battle took only about a dozen tries, a fair bit of luck and all four of the potions I had collected so far; and I still almost lost. Yaaayyy... Off to a great start! (There would've only really been two other strategies to get through this: 1. Using the power boost from Evolution to get an advantage against his unevolved team, but the resulting double weakness to Grass probably would've turned Budew into an even greater issue. 2. Cathing a Burmy - the at this point only other available Pokémon that (potentially) evolves to a Ground Type - and training it to Lv. 15 so it learns Bug Bite. ´But to even get one I would've first needed to capture and grind a Pokémon that learns Headbutt and then baby Burmy until it learns Tackle at Lv. 10. And then probably baby it some more.) Anyway, this first (somewhat) major victory has also resulted in this run's first Evolution and therefore first actual Ground type, hooray for that! It also immediately learns Mud Shot. Now it's time to go kick some Meteor butts! Yaaay! Unfortunately that means having to team up with Fern... Marshtomp easily rips through the Grunts while Budew just kind of flails around. Soon enough we reach the control room which means... cue Battle VS Meteor Grunts Aster & Eclipse Question Marks-Man agrees that this was a poor performance and the three of them hightail it out of there through the Secret Villain Teleporter Exit ™ . Julia then blows the whole place up for no reason whatsoever. Could've at least tried to check if those Computers still hold some valuable information. With that done, the party splits up. Fern buggers off back to somewhere, Florinia has something to attend to in Obsidia Ward and Julia goes back to her Gym so guess where we're heading next. Unfortunately Marshtomp is already very close Lv. 21 and thus the point where it stops obeying. I decide to ignore that because I loathe wasting experience, so it'll have to work out. Cue Gym Battle VS Cheer Captain Julia Beating her nets us our first badge, raising the level cap to 25, as well as the TM for Charge Beam, which I suspect will be supremely useless throughout this entire run. Outside the Gym Victoria is already waiting for us and delivers some notable news: Apparentally Obsidia Ward is getting attacked by plants! We all know what that means. Next Destination: Obsidia Ward But before that there's some new stuff still to do in Peridot Ward. Namely getting some Additional Team Members! First up is this Numel just chilling in the rain. Feeding it causes it to decide to join our team; that was easy! This girl will actually be a quite important party member since it's one of the very few available Ground Types with a usable SpAtk. stat. It's also super effective against Grass and Ice Types and only takes neutral damage from them, making the (not yet present) other team members less vulnerable against those types. Next Up: This hiker is stuck in Reborn City due to the train station being destroyed and is now looking for a house to rent. Helping him out rewards us with an Onix: Not much to say about this one. Onix's only good stat is Defense so I'm for now mostly using it as a placeholder to have a less empty team. And that concludes Chapter I. No major happenings so far, but there's still plenty of game left. Current Play Time: 1:05h Expect the next Chapter sometime tomorrow. See ya!

[vs Adrienn] Chapter 35: Teamwork and iron will! [vs Titania] Chapter 36: Never get drowned in sorrow [vs Amaria] CHAPTER 1: An explosively lucky start! About three months ago, I was discussing with a friend about pokemon, so chat went to our most hated typings, to which (ofc) I chose bug, which I absolutely hated with a passion, apart from a couple exceptions (looking at you Butterfree <3). So, he wanted to make a bet that I wouldn't be able to beat Current episode of Pokemon Reborn by using only Bug types. Of course, I couldn't say no to such a challenge, and I accepted (bracing my heart to use pokemon I didn't like at all till then...). So, I began my playthrough, after running some research on Bulbapedia to not be a complete noob... Character name: Angel Sex: Non-binary Since I don't have the know-how to hack a bug-type starter for me, I decided to pick one based on breeding purposes. And since bug types lack (till gen VI) a good water type, I decided to pick Squirtle in order to breed Hydro Pump on a Surskit! My squirtle had great IVs, which was a great start for the game. I named her Respect (cause I'll eventually store her in box, but I'll always respect her) and she defeated easily Cain's Nidoran and Victoria's Tepig, before heading outside to get my first little bug... And, oh, the joy! It was a shiny Spinarak. And it has a 30 Attack IV, god damn! I caught her and named her Happiness. This run honestly couldn't have started any better! By wandering around I saved the Zigzagoon from the Bridge, it learned headbutt, so I managed to get a Combee (took ages of Headbutting a tree, I even found a shiny male Combee, fml, I know) and a Pineco as well. I also got a couple Burmy's but I never liked the idea of using Wormadam, so I boxed them. I also picked Kelly's Kricketot and a couple more catches, in the form of shiny Caterpie and Wurmple. Soon, I had a team consisting of: Valor, the Pineco (Male) Careful/Sturdy Protect Bug Bite Take Down Self-Destruct Valiant, the Kricketune (Male) Bold/Swarm Growl Bide Struggle Bug Fury Cutter Braveheart, the Butterfree (Male) Timid/Tinted Lens Confusion Sleep Powder Stun Spore Gust Patience, the Dustox (Male) Calm/Compound Eyes Gust Confusion Poison Powder Moonlight Happiness, the Spinarak (Female) Hardy/Sniper Poison Sting Leech Life Night Shade Scary Face Royalty, the Combee (Female) Bold/Honey Gather Sweet Scent Gust Bug Bite The evolutions were the result of grinding, destroying Fern's ass outside one of the two factories (the wrong one, idiot was waiting at the wrong place, then blaming others for his incompetence) and struggling through double battles in the correct factory... I don't know which was worse, having to survive Rock Tombs of Arons and Roggenrollas or admit that Fern carried me through that hell. At least I made it up to him by managing to handle the Magby while he was using Growth for 27 times in a row and getting annihilated. Bless the Lord for Night Shade, Spinarak saved the day, as well as Dustox with Poison Powder/Moonlight Stall. So, after that and with the aforementioned team, I went happily to fight Julia... VS JULIA Happily before the fight... I swear, this fight gets harder every time I replay Reborn. She leads with Helioptile and proceeds to Glare at my Valor, who is the slowest thing on Earth anyways! My Pinecone... errr Pineco, escapes through Paralysis and takes down Helioptile with a Bug Bite spam. Then, Julia sends in her first (small) ball of doom, and I consider it a good time to stack up Fury Cutter with Valiant. My Kricketune takes down Voltorb and wastes Julia's first potion with 3 Fury Cutters, but is in the red, so I swap him with Braveheart, who has to face the second Voltorb. Voltorb and Butterfree exchange Charge Beams and Confusions, but thank God, it gets zero Sp.Atk. boosts, and Julia has to waste a potion to take down my Braveheart. I send in Happiness, happy that I will just Night Shade and kill it... NOPE! This round m***fucker decides to explode, killing my spider and itself in the process.... There goes my easy fixed damage on Electrode plan! Julia sends in Emolga, so I say "Fuck this shit" to myself, and send in Combee to take a shot, as I heal Valor to full HP. Combee dies to 1 Acrobatics and my Pineco lives another Acrobatics with Sturdy, to perform the sequel of the previous round. It Self-Destructs in the face of the flying ele squirrel, killing himself, and its opponent! Dustox single-handedly kills Blitzle by an alteration of Poison Powder, Confusion and Moonlight, while I wonder why the Flame Charge isn't even taking half of Dustox's HP... This thing is a legit God! Finally, Electrode comes in. It is my third attempt, so I know that I need some luck. I leave Dustox in, and Poison Powder it, getting the damage going. At least, Julia has used her 2 potions already. Electrode Decides to go for Charge Beam, but fails to get the stat boost, as I start using Confusion/Moonlight in turns. However, it begins to Rollout (please miss, ffs) and in 3 turns, my Dustox is murdered from full HP... I send in my Kricketune, who has about 8 HP. AND YES, ROLLOUT MISSES! Knowing that if I attack it with Fury Cutter, Aftermath will probably cost me the win, I had selected Struggle Bug in advance. It leaves the Electrode with 7 HP and Poison Powder damage secures the kill, granting me my first badge (highly useful), my first TM (Charge Beam, highly useless) and a sleepy ex-cheerleader. I scream YES-YES like a maniac though, since it was my 3rd attempt to beat her and I start to get hopes that mono-Bug might be possible actually! Hugely surprised by Dustox's resillience and by Pineco's and Combee's sacrifices! Bugs gaining my respect! Now I shall go take care of weird plants that wreak havoc, as Victoria informs me... Good luck myself! PS. Stay tuned, and feel free to provide any feedback guys and girls! Hope you enjoy!
