  1. 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!
  2. Hello ! So I've been reading a few playthroughs/fanfictions on the forum, most notably Vanilla's and Matthew's adventures, and I wanted to try one as well. Sorry for the title, I usually struggle with these things. I wanted to add "terribly-titled" (because it's bound to be) but some expletive guy with a huge hungry dragon-like green familiar (I think it was a female, they're supposedly always fiercer) told me these words were his. He sounded pretty upset so I thought best not to defy him. A couple of things about how it is going to work: it is going to be a fanfiction (mostly following the game's original scenario, but...) coupled with a simultaneous playthrough (which will impact events such as the Pokemon in the team, the evolutions, etc). The fanfiction chapters will include a few screenshots as illustrations. Most chapters will, as seems customary, include a "character ratings" part at the very end. Some of them will also include a "PC death count" section which corresponds to the number of defeat-related save scums (not for IVs or mining) during the playthrough to that point. (I'm really not a good player, so I'm going to use items and save scum instead of losing money.) This "death count" will not be referenced directly in the story, but it may affect how the protagonist wins or loses some minor battles with little stakes (some Gym Leader battles, maybe Cain/Fern as well). Something else is worth mentioning: the fanfiction (and thus playthrough) is going to be quite slow-paced. For some comparison: I've been preparing a few chapters and it's more or less going to take twice as much text to get to Julia (probably Chapter 9) as in Vanilla's adventures. Finally, English being not my first language (and my not having much experience writing in my own native language either), there probably are going to be mistakes, so I am welcoming any feedback and comments. That's all for the introduction, let's go with the story. Part 1: An Unexpected Journey Chapter 1: Pearl Harbor "aelauake?" The first thing I realized while awaking was pain. My whole back hurt as badly as though a car had tackled me into a solid wall. It didn't hurt (well, it did) that I was currently lying on it. The simile wasn't perfect, actually: the worst was focused on my shoulders and on my lower back. They felt exactly as if they had been skinned. I also found myself struggling to breathe. Maybe someone had struck me in the chest as well. "Gabriel, are you awake?" I didn't really hear the words, my ears were ringing wildly and felt deaf at the same time. The air around me smelt awfully -- and I didn't usually notice these things. There were heavy smoke and ash in the air, but there was something even deeper and more unpleasant beneath. "Gabriel, is it? Are you okay? Please don't go..." My hearing was too dull to make out the last words, which were very quiet, but I got the meaning of the first two sentences. And I thought I could infer the tone. The speaker was distressed, maybe even desperate. What could possibly have happened? I hardly remembered a thing. I did not know this voice. I hurt a lot and I could have been dying. Deep down, I felt like this was definitely not normal. I decided anyway to show I was alive by opening my eyes and trying to rise -- Pain soared. I could see nothing but destruction around. Actually, it was dark, so maybe I was at just the wrong place. Given how much I hurt, I definitely was. Some sort of large, broken apart, building was burning beside me. There were a few police officers (with recognizable uniforms) around. And a woman who looked both appalled and relieved as she looked at me. "Gabriel, thank Arceus you're awake. But, all the others..." She gestured desperately at the burning mess, and I became aware again that I had zero idea about what was going on. Although the woman looked very faintly familiar, with her blue eyes, white skin and very light-colored hair, this was no explanation for why she knew my name. This was very worrying, especially since I seemingly had survived a life-threatening event. My life was at stake. I wished I could be as far away as possible from this place, but, obviously, nothing happened. Well, of course I couldn't get something for nothing. Teleportation like that was fantasy. I got up -- pain flared, the world spinned for a while and then steadied itself -- kept focusing on my breathing, and I turned to the woman beside me. "I'm, hum, sorry, but what was this?" Just unbelievable how clumsy I could be. She frowned as an answer. "I don't know. The train wasn't slowing down, so I tackled you, shoving both of us outside. The train hit the station at full speed while exploding. I'm glad to have saved you, but everyone else... I'd rather not think about it. But who would even -- " She had been struggling to form the sentences, marking long pauses. She visibly had trouble collecting herself. That's likely a very normal behavior. Hopefully you aren't a psychopath devoid of empathy, yet. You might only be completely lost because you don't remember anything. She only broke at the last sentence, as a cheerful younger woman with bright yellow clothes ran with obvious enthusiasm and much giggling towards us. The blue-eyed woman did not seem pleased to see her. She actually looked very not-pleased. "Julia... What did you do? " Julia, obviously, denied being involved in any way, apart from her racing to the explosion to watch the fun first-hand. That was also worth a worry. Hopefully she would be very, very far from anything that might explode... My savior frowned deeply, watching the mess -- and I imitated her. "This must have been a deliberate attack, I am afraid." she uttered. I could not believe my ears. A terror attack? A terror attack had physically blown up the train I was travelling in -- even though I couldn't remember what for -- and I had survived only by the most unlikely stroke of luck. I would very much go home now, please. Wait, this was not appropriate. Never mind. Julia, on the other hand, sounded almost admirative. As if she could not wait to hire the person responsible... This was as scary a thought, actually, than the terror attack thing. "This isn't the time to be admiring their work. Whoever did this would have been monitoring the train, so they cannot be too far away. If I have the perimeter locked, we might get them... Sorry Gabriel, but I have to go. Somebody should be waiting for you near the Grand Hall. Just go straight ahead, not on the bridge. " Had I not watched her as she spoke, I would not have believed how fast she was in control again. As if this was an ordinary Tuesday for her... That could be even worse news, when one thought about it: that might mean that such disasters were common. Julia looked at me, and uttered this unbelievable sentence: "I am Julia, captain of cheer and pep, and all things bubbly and bright! Oh, pop quiz: are you going to take on the Reborn League?" What the... whatever was even the Reborn League? "Hum, I'm afraid I won't. Actually", I blurted. "That's no fun", she pretended to whine. Oh, come on, she could be older than I was. "I am the Electric Gym Leader" -- oh, no -- "so of course I have to insist! I'll be looking forward to your challenge, so get down to the Grand Hall!" she added, oblivious to my dismay, and leaving me alone. I had no idea where I was, where to go, except something about a Grand Hall, somehow straight downtown. It all hurt pretty bad, but hopefully it wasn't too far. I started to walk, but I noticed that the pain was worse than I had assessed, although it remained manageable. I tried to speak with a few people along the way. The attack remained on their minds -- how couldn't it be -- and it was no use trying to find out where I was. One of the people waiting not far, was crying -- she had been waiting for her fiancee. Another one, with a still shaky voice, had escaped the catastrophe by a very bare margin -- they had been in the station a few seconds before the train had blown up. Several others had lost friends, relatives. A few ones had been on vacation and had no idea how to come back. And I still did not know where I was or why I was there. After quite a while, maybe a mile, the outset changed. People did not that much concerned with the incident any more, and I found myself staring at a large building with slight colorful notes. This had to be the Great Hall. "Hi, are you from the station?" a tiny little boy of maybe five asked me. "Yes, why?" I found myself answering uneasily. "My dad is very sad because he said that something very bad had happened there. But Mummy was supposed to come back home by train and she hasn't come back and Daddy is crying now and won't tell me. And why are you walking funny?" I c-couldn't tell him, that wasn't my place. What could even I say? "I'm sorry." I muttered back, heartbroken, and hurried away. A rather muscular young woman with loose grey clothes was waiting nearby, glancing at me every so often. "Hey", she asked me as I was heading towards the Hall. "Are you Gabriel?" With a bit of surprise, I nodded. How come my name was known? Julia or the other woman could have told her. She answered that she was Victoria. She enquired after my general situation with concern. I answered her that I hurt pretty much everywhere -- after the shoulders and the lower back, I had developed a nasty headache and my limbs felt very heavy -- and that a train apparently rigged with explosives had blown up and taken the entire station with it. She mentioned that a certain "Eimy" had asked her to "bring me in for registration". Wait... Eimy what? Registration what? Where in the world was I? I really wished I could have asked this, but this definitely would not have been diplomatic. And she had been kinder than pretty much everyone... "Er, what registration, exactly?" I finally asked. "For the Reborn League, of course." she answered, looking baffled. "Hm, I'm really sorry for asking, but what is the Reborn League?" I insisted. "That's, well, the Pokemon League from the Reborn Region." she answered, apparently more confused. "So I am in the Reborn Region and I asked to participate to the League?" "I'd guess so, yes." she patiently said. "But I have never heard of any of these!" I protested. What I didn't tell her was that I remembered quite clearly now the previous days, and I had made absolutely no plans about challenging a Pokemon League. I would never have gone challenging even the Kalos League. I was studying math, which was just better in every respect. Cleaner, clearer, less uncertain. So how could I have ended up here, of all places? I didn't really have the choice anyway, and I went with Victoria to the Great Hall. While holding the door for Victoria -- I couldn't believe I was being this ridiculous, Victoria would have done so much better instead of miserably struggling in a haze of fatigue -- or maybe struggling to just open it -- a thick envelope slipped out of a pocket I hadn't remembered I had. It was meant for me (it had my name, but not any address), but I was positive I had never seen it. So I opened it. Inside were a few bank notes -- I couldn't believe that so far, I had not worried about money -- and a note: "Use sparingly". In my own writing. What? "What's there?" Victoria asked, looking at my presumably alarmed face. "Nothing." was all I could answer. I didn't want to draw too much attention to the fact that was helpless, and that I had money. "And now, with my usual luck, I am stranded here..." Another thought managed to reach my strained brain. Should my parents get wind of the attack, they would want to know what happened to me... They would worry a lot. I picked up my phone, only to find it smashed. It seemingy had not liked my disembarking very much. Victoria looked at my cell phone and said that she could not make international calls. Guess I had to ask "Eimy". Was it my alleged blue-eyed travel companion (although I didn't remember any travel)? We ended up at a far end in the Grand Hall, at a counter. "I am, er, sorry" I apologized to my rescuer. "But I have no idea what is going on. In my latest, memory, I am in Kalos. What happened?" "Oh." she answered simply, looking very puzzled. "I don't have much time, what do you wish to know?" "First, who are you?" "I am Amethyst, the manager of the Reborn League. You can call me Ame." So that was her. "So, we're in Reborn City, and you convinced me to try my chance." "I didn't convince you. We met in the train to Reborn City -- I think you mentioned something about three planes before and another train -- I mentioned the League, and you sounded quite enthusiastic about challenging it." "I'm afraid I would rather come back home." "There's no real way." she sighed. "Reborn is rather wild. The railway station is, well, to pieces. It was the only real way to go back to... Kalos, right? There was almost a full day of high-speed train in the wilderness. Till the station is repaired, I am afraid you can't leave." Come on, there had to be some way... I'd deal with it later. Wait, did I actually spend at least several days, with the full-day train ride and the other planes? Which day were we? "Is there a way for me to phone someone in Kalos, just to tell them that I am safe?" "I am afraid it can't be done either. We don't have phone links with Kalos, or much of the rest of the world for that matter. We were using the train and letters to communicate with afar." Crap.. "I think I'm slightly wounded. Do you know where I can some sort of treatment? And by the way, I don't know anything around here, do you know where I could sleep?" "I'll show you in a minute. You might be interested to know about the investigation: we were quite lucky and caught right away a suspect with good evidence. We're going to make him talk. By the way," she added, turning to Victoria, "why are you here, Victoria?" "I'm here to take on the League, Ame." she answered. "Kiki thought it would be good training." "I'm sorry, but as you know, you'll have to wait for tomorrow. I can't give out starters this late." Ame replied simply. "There should be room for you to stay here as well tonight. Why are you here so late, anyway?" What kind of administrative building had even room for chance (or rather misfortune) wanderers to sleep? The rest of the evening was mainly pain and exhaustion, now that my adrenaline level was falling down to normal. Ame showed me the nursery and pointed me to a couch in an isolated room. A weary doctor examined my wounds and declared that however spectacular (falling off a train at that speed apparently was quite damaging), they weren't serious, but required disinfectant. Very annoyingly, it turned out that the disinfectant reacted more to the "spectacular" part, rather than the "serious" part. I tripped on the couch and fell asleep after contemplating unpleasant thoughts such as the stinging pain in my back, my now atrocious headache, being trapped in Reborn City for an indefinite period of time, and not being able to communicate with the outside world. Oh well. Tomorrow was another day. Character ratings:
  3. 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!
  4. I'm sitting here, just finished playing Rejuvenation, all bored because I don't have any more juicy pokémon games to play. I COULD start working on a Pokémon fangame like I've been wanting to for over a year, or I could finish my backlog of JRPGs, but I'm way too lazy to do that. But suddenly, inspiration strikes. Reborn! That's a juicy pokémon fangame, right? So, I sit on my computer chair, and with a few clicks of my mouse I download Reborn and all those nice mods, make a backup of my "main" save file... but something's not quite right. I've already played Reborn 4 times, I'm surely going to get bored quickly. I think, and think again, and then some more, all while drinking a nice cup of tea. Out of pure boredom, I start making my own character to play as (spriting's hard, y'all), and right as I finish, my brain clicks. What if I made one of those text-based nuzlocke playthroughs? I mean, it could work, right? So without further ado, I present thee: FlygonFreak's Awesome Reborn Shinylocke (kinda) First things first: The Rules 1. Standard, "casual" nuzlocke rules apply, unless the rules say otherwise. 2. As this is a shinylocke, I can only use shiny pokémon. 3. I can catch any shiny pokémon I find in the wild, but will only actively hunt for shinies once per "route" (I might break the hunt rule sometimes, but only if a gym leader/boss gives me a very hard time). 4. Gifted/event pokémon must also be shiny, and won't apply to the "one per route" rule. This applies to eggs too, but I can only breed them with a (shiny) Ditto. 5. I must win every single battle, including optional ones, but I'll allow myself a "test" run before gym leaders/bosses to try out strategies and stuff. These won't count, and even if I win I'll have to re-do them. 6. The Gauntlet will be the only exception to the usual nuzlocke rules. It's too hard for me. Sorry. 7. If I lose the nuzlocke (aka get wiped out), I'll either keep going or just remove the "-locke" part of the run. I'll decide when that happens. 8. I'll use both Rare Candies and Max Revives as "resurrection tokens". If I reeeally want/need to use a mon, I'll allow myself to use one of these items. (I think it's fair, considering the price of Rare Candies and that Max revives can't be bought) I know some of these break what a nuzlocke is, but, honestly, if I'm doing this I want to have fun. and that means I don't want to be stressed out or smth. Chapter 0: A Series Of Unfortunate Events, or: Probably the only bit with actual story ((Don't worry, I won't make more stories like this one, I just wanted to stretch my writing muscles a bit and also give an "explanation" to why this weird blue boi is stuck on a gloomy place like Reborn)) Chapter 1: The Struggle Of Finding A Suitable Partner So, I've got a small surprise. This ain't gonna be one of those LAME shinylockes, NO. This is gonna be a FUN shinylocke. That means R A N D O M S T A R T E R. Originally I wanted to use a Kartana (I have a custom shiny for it and everything, my precious origami boi), but he was too stronk. There's a catch, though. Besides being shiny (which means I need to first get a shiny starter), I'll only allow pokémon that a) aren't starters b) can evolve c) aren't too op/big event pokémon I'm supposed to get in the future (Ralts, Riolu, Poipole/whatever) and d) can beat both Veronica AND Cain. This is to ensure the starter isn't too OP or weak, and that I can actually do something with it. To randomize the starter I'll use one of these bad bois. There's a mod there that allows you to randomize your starter, which imo is better than using debug. So, first thing first, the poor mon that is getting randomized is... This awesome lad! I usually choose Chimchar cuz he's a beautiful boi, so it seemed fitting. And now, time for the runner ups. These are the starters that got chosen but didn't make it through Cain and Veronica's grinder (usually due to typing or stats) Kinda sad, because they all seemed pretty cool. Specially Morelull, I've never used one. But enough sad, time for the winner... DRUM ROLL This fella! Coal the kitty, a very talented albeit kinda boring lad. I'm disappointed that I didn't get to use something more... I don't know, cool, but he's a cutie so who cares. And that's the end of the first chapter! The next one will be up to (but not including) Julia's gym, though I don't know when I'll actually make it. Hope you liked this! PS: Fuck this guy, and fuck his useless fish. If I ever get that far, trust me, I won't bother shiny hunting it.
  5. 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 7: Wasteland and Wastemans Chapter 8: Shattered Dreams Chapter 9: Meteor Mash 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.
  6. 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!
