As some close friends may know i've done quite a few crazy nuzlocke runs in the past. However, now it is time to go back to the basics and play a classic game from childhoods.


Ah Toxicroak, a classic icon and veritable secondary mascot pokemon of the series beloved and recognized by 90's kids everywhere.

and who could forget professor oak? A true man of the sea!

Oak introduces us to the world of pokemon ofcourse with a ominous letter staring into eternity.(it's a hazing ritual ok?)
Now after that's all out of the way what shall our protagonist be named?
I decide to go for some suggestions
[12/18/15 7:38:53 PM] Roxanne: somebody screech out a random name
[12/18/15 7:39:08 PM](Shadowwolflink): Rey
Roxanne wrote: done

Perfect
Now what was our rival called again?

Well.. i don't actually know. See, Oak keeps on forgetting his name but he sure does like bagels!
Upon starting the game i find a max potion in the PC! sweet!

Our lovely mother
So as one usually does our intrepid protagonist goes to explore outside but is stopped by..

Oak himself! see, it turns out that other guy earlier was just some drunk sailor claiming to be a pokemon professor whilst the real Oak is stylish as hell!

Ah yes, i forgot about that misleading twist they throw you early on. Bagels is in fact a girl!
Now that all this preamble is finally out of the way it is time for our lovely choice of starters

in the first ball we have TATWAG, possibly the greatest grass starter of all time.

In the second ball is a lovely pre-evolved KAMBASKIN! another tempting choice

And then last but not least is good old Parasect.
ofcourse i choose parasect sheerly because of how cute it is.

Bagels decides on TROTWAG and ofcourse immediately challenges our Rye like a douche.

Wherein she suddenly transforms into a intimidating old woman.

FUCK. that… isn't a TORTWEG at all!

Yes! now i could possibly just slowly wittle it down…

*SEVERAL TURNS LATER* HAHAHA THIS IS TAKING FOREVER BUT I SHALL PERSEVERE VIA PURE DETERMINATION AND HAX!!! GO MY HORRIBLE MUSHROOM ZOMBIE! YOU CAN DO IT!
*SEVERAL TURNS OF FUTILE STRUGGLE LATER*

Determination was not enough.. I hate Aggrons
But that was just a warmup match right? hehe..
Now for the REAL adventure to begin! >=3

This is why Rye has never left Palette. Freaking dragons everywhere holy shit

OH, AND EXPLODING ICE GOLEMS APPARENTLY

The manly pokemon center. Nurse Butch looks mean but he's a real sweetheart once you get to know him i've heard.

POKEMON CAN TALK!?
Anyway, you know the drill. Rye picks up the parcel for oak from the shop blah blah blah.. boring and unnecessary to get into. Rye gets there, oak gives them and Bagels pokedexes, Bagels acts like a douche as usual, etc.
Back for more viridian time and to finally catch some stuff.

Before catching stuff, we drop in on a tutoring session by the coolest teacher in town. Look at him, he is amazing.

Here we drop in on a household where a child is engaging in the trendy activity of swimming in the ground. yes.
In the room there is a sign stating the name of a spearrow and the guy at the table talks about how proud he is of his simple nicknames. but.. there is no spearrow to be foun-

OH. MY. GOD.
Backtracking for a catch time!

Aww this is a nice one for a change.

so nice that Yeast just paralyzes and scratches it into submitting in one go.

..regenerate any part of it's body" so cute i can't stand it.

next


HOLY CRAP WANT!!
unfortunately this huge killer crab does not agree, repeatedly resists capture and almost kills Yeast.

whew.. just barely. I know exactly what this pokemon is and looks like so i'll go name it just that. I don't care about creativity! I CANNOT LIE AND ALSO SHUT UP YOU'RE NOT MY UNCLE!!

Yes
To be continued..

[spoiler=Part 2: The Worst Forest]
Last time stuff happened. Go read it, ya douche!

You crazy kids and your swimming in the ground!
Oh what the- it looks like someone wants to speak… wait what!? I'M THE NARRATOR AND LPER GODDAMNIT YOU CAN'T JUST-*Sound of static and channel changing*
Hello I am Rye. My actual name is a decent bit longer but nobody can seem to pronounce it for some reason so Rye is what i am. Today i have visited a lovely forest. I'm not sure why though but it just felt right like I had some kind of force pushing me to go, you know?

Oh hello new friend

As usual our new friend is a bit rowdy so Yeast has to make it stop moving as it curls into a ball like a silly thing

Our new friend was being quite like a pickle but after several balls it finally gave in =D

A lovely name for our new friend
*sound of channel changing again* Ok, finally back on track. sorry about that folks, have no idea what got into my protagonist taking away the commentary slot like that.
anyway, let's continue exploring this forest i guess. Viridian forest may look intimidating at first but it's usually not too bad of a place.

OH GOD WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?

AUGH WHAT!? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS FOREST. THIS PLACE IS TERRIFYING!

after a while we run into a forest.. bodybuilder?(also, it's funny how he looks a tad cooler in R/G/B style than anywhere else) anyway, it's still scary as hell but it's actually not too hard to take down and practically the only thing thus far in this godforsaken death trap of a forest i can actually take on and grind on fairly well.
But this isn't anywhere near the end of the horrors this forest still has left within it's hellish labyrinthine depths.

OH GOD NO. SOMEHOW YOU'RE ALMOST AS TERRIFYING AS THAT TONGUE ABOMINATION THAT STILL HAUNTS MY NIGHTMARES! N-NO, GET AWAY! I'M SORRY I'M SORRY! ;A;
after a bit of grinding Rye's pokemon are finally strong enough and i have become desensitized enough from it all to actually make some progress through the forest

Our first trainer is pretty cool. She even has a whip to show how cool she is!

Woah shit, i do not want to be on the receiving end of that espeon's wrath.

Fortunately it is no match for Yeast's horrible life-sucking tendencies. Nobody believes in you, Yeast but I knew i made the right choice! >=3

She also had a Quagsire. Anpan tanked and psy beamed it.

Another cool trainer had.. this.

The rest of the trainers and such were fairly uneventful
items found in viridian forest: X special, pokeball, repel.

Thus we arrive at pewter city and more importantly, the second buff center. That old captain near the receptionist desk sings quite the lovely song.

Also there's another talking seel. It seems just as surprised as i was about it initially.

It also appears to have and be capable of using a cell phone with those flippers. This is amazing

Yeah, riding a bike.

Indeed it is.

while here i also take the opportunity to buy 8 pokeballs(at the rate i went through 10 of them already we're going to need as many as we can get) as well as a potion because i'm sick of having my team almost murdered.
*krzzzt* ok fine.. but i'd better get it back again soon.
SO AFTER LOOKING AROUND IN PEWTER FOR A WHILE I REALIZED OH MAN, I FORGOT I COULD GO LEFT. So i backtracked all the way back through the forest to viridian city and went left! =D
*krzzzt*

Woah, celebi has decided to pay us a visit! Maybe we should try to catch it?

Nah, screw it. This time traveling douche isn't worth the trouble..

Afterwards, Bagels suddenly runs into us and demands a test of strength because she is still really insecure about what everybody calls her.

she then cackles like a stereotypical witch and transforms into a grumpy old lady again
"AHAHAHA! GRUMPY OLD LADY POWER ACTIVATE!"
Why do you keep doing that?
"BECAUSE IT ENHANCES MY POKEMON POWER SOMEHOW WITH MAGIC OR SOMETHING"
oh ok

Her first pokemon is a cool Raichu

Took a while but in the end Raichu's coolness wasn't enough to get through Anpan's impenetrable barrier of sheer lazyness and apathy

CRAB BATTLE
guess who wins? spoilers: the one with the huge claw you idiot[/spoiler]

[spoiler=Part 3: The Final Boss..?]

Well, everybody's about lv 10-11 so now i think we're about ready for the gym.

W-what? how did they even.. they were JUST way back in viridian! I didn't even see them on the way back here! What the what!? Curse you Bagels and your witchcraft!

Brock's personal chef and assistant trainer challenges us but i think we're in good enough shape to handle both him and his boss.

Suddenly he dramatically rips off his chef attire to reveal.. WAIT WHAT!? He was Gary all along!?

He proceeds to throw one of his radish's at u- oh wait that's a pokemon. aw damnit, bad luck on the lead here.
welp, i know a mon that can eat grass types for breakfast here.

Well, Yeast tanks it's attacks like a champ but.. damnit, this is going to take forever.

OW WHAT THE HELL!? WHY IS THIS ODDISH'S ACID SO MUCH STRONGER THAN MY STUFF!? @.@

Fortunately it is at low enough health that one tackle does the trick. Good job, little buddy.

Aw shit

so CAKE seems to be doing pretty well with vicegrip as the Swamper uses some worthless attack like tackle or something but then suddenly mud slap actually hits hard!

Our OP psychic abomination should be able to deal with it nicely though.

And she did.

..says the jr. trainer i somehow never noticed watching on the sidelines. He also corrects Gary on his incorrect use of the term light years. Hah! Smell YOU later, IDIOT


Um.. ok then..(oh god, what kind of horrible shipping have i unleashed upon the world..)
Anyway, that was entirely too scary and thus i don't think we are ready for Brock yet at all.

Grinding time

Huh.. well.. that's new and surprisingly friendly for this horrible place.

Flour learned this along the way. Which would be awesome if they could take a hit well but they can't.
Also yeah, i only just now remembered to document move learning but eh whatever, i'll do what i want. SHUT UP, YOU'RE NOT MY PET CRAB!

After a decent bit of time fighting the wretched fiends of the forest of nightmares we are finally ready
TO CHALLENGE.
THE.
BROCK.

Who is actually a magic scientist.

Aw crap.
CAKE makes a valiant effort to fight this dragon but even his mighty carapace can't withstand the beast's horrible bites well. Damnit Hydreigon, I know he looks delicious but it's not for you! >=E
Oh crap.. oh damn aw man.. what do i do? nothing is bulky enough to survive the possible outrage here..
I'm so sorry, everyone.. we weren't ready at all! ;.; And now.. i've lead all of you to your deaths...
!
WAIT OUTRAGE IS SPECIAL HERE AND I HAVE A POKEMON WITH EXCELLENT SPECIAL RIGHT HERE! =D

Wait wtf am i doing sending anpan in against a dark type!? Luckily it used tri-attack this turn but still, Anpan can't even hit it! OAO; NO NO NO NO! THEY'RE ALL GONNA DIE!! OAO"

My only possible option left is to heal Cake, i guess. I hope this works..

And it did! With one last vice grip THE HORRIBLE BEAST IS SLAIN AT LAST! =D
Wait.. what's that? He's going to switch to an… A-aggron? @.@; It's like all my earlygame nightmares are coming back for a reunion party that involves destroying my face! NEVERMIND, WE'RE ALL STILL GOING TO DIE

I'm so sorry, little guy.. ;.;
I choose one last attack hoping it works and bracing for the most likely deadly counterattack when..


O.O! Holy crap! Suddenly the little deer delivers a flying kick to the imposing steel beast's face with enough force behind it to crack it's armour Go get him, little buddy!

Flour then springs off the great beast's head and uses the momentum to deliver one final devastating kick to it's midsection causing it's iron body to shatter and then explode for some cool reason.
They did it.. they actually did it..

And with that the great iron terror of the north was defeated and the dread warlock Brock's reign of terror was finally put to an end.

Our task is finally done.. ushering in a new age of peace and TM's across the land.

But Brock still had one last trick up his sleeve! He claimed this TMS was bide but it was actually fury attack all along! However, this clever ruse was no match for the great Rye and their menu opening prowess.

Learning from that tense battle I decide to grab a couple potions. Our quest may be over and our nemesis may be slain but it's still better to be safe than sorry just in case a ghost decides to fart on us in the epilogue![/spoiler]

Finally back with this. Now remembering that spoiler tags work here too to prevent too much image clog. Yay, i'm maybe-smart!
[spoiler=Part 4: Is This Really What an Epilogue Tastes Like?]

Welcome, everyone to the epilogue. Last time we beat the dreaded Brock and completed our quest so now for the postgame journey back to palette where we'll talk to all the characters we met along the way, resolving every subplot and seeing what everyone got up to since we start- *krrzt*
Oh, you sillybucket! My true quest isn't over yet, i've stil got to become.. TEH VERY BEST!!!!111! *krrzt*
heh.. got you there didn't i?


"And so their journey begins.."
"What awaits the four, they do not know"
"Each weilding their own horrible power, our intrepid group of freaks seeks out the various gyms for dubious reasons. These gyms that once shone beautifully 1000 years ago but now only contain darkness."
"Come! Rye, Yeast, Flour, Cake, oh.. and Anpan i guess. Start your journey! For everlasting bestness!"

this weirdo suddenly jumps us for just glancing at them

Weirdo

A weirdo with some spiffy mons though

Not spiffy enough for Cake though

The weirdo's next mon is… uh….? i'm speechless here. Best to put the poor thing out of it's misery i suppose.

DOHOHO LOOK AT THAT FACE! AREN'T YOU JUST PRECIOUS?
Too bad i have to KO you.

WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING

Strongest deer, best friend ;v;

Holy crap, our little deer just keeps kicking ass ever since the gym!

Oh hey it's everybody's favorite!

,,,But it was just a fiendish disguise! LORELEI!? WHAT DID YOU DO TO SHORTS-KID!?


Her first pokemon is a lame fish which Yeast has a pathetic slap fight with. It takes forever and is overall the most pathetic thing i've seen yet.

But atleast Yeast is still good at this.
After lorelei we fight more weirdos and such.
Oh hey, we finally see a real Tatwa-

…nevermind.
along the road we fight many strange people


Things that should not exist

Crazy cool things

Oh and CAKE learns a thing
now let's see who our potential new teammate is this time

Holy crap yes, please come in!

Surprisingly this cool thing accepts the invitation graciously in only 2 pokeballs

Yes
Afterwards I do some grinding for flats but that's boring so i'm just going to time travel for a moment here

Finally Rye reaches mt. moon and the third wondrous buff center

Goddamn seels! Stop thinking you are people! >.<*

Yes! Give us the goods, reputable salesperson!

He offers us a lovely magikarp for only 5 dollars! what a bargain!

GOD FUCKING DAMNIT

GO AWAY, LORELEI! YOU'RE DRUNK!

Oh also the route outside of mt. moon appeared to be a gathering place for all kinds of steel horrors as well as some snakes. it's pretty great and i'd highly recommend visiting!

And now to venture into the deep, dark innards of mt. moon itself who knows what hours we will find and potential new companions shall be gained?
What's that? i thought i heard some scurrying

*sigh* Well, might as well catch this thing as a backup i guess.
Now Yeast, just paralyze it and give it a tap

…well shit. Yeast paralyzes and proceeds to lightly tap the small rodent pokemon once with it's claw. The Patrat dramatically falls over and explodes in a burst of flames. well.. uh.. better luck next time…?

Not surprisingly we find more of these crazy ladies inside.

We also found out that we could've easily done much better than Patrat in just the second encounter.. goddamnit

But hey, it wasn't the only lame normal type in this cave so it's fair enough.


We find a delicious ™! Unfortunately nobody can learn it.

WOAH WHAT A GEODUDE IN A CAVE!? THIS IS CRAZY TALK!! OAO; This is by far the weirdest thing Rye has encountered on their journey and i doubt that it will ever be topped

Aw shit, we got the Blaine mad somehow. We're roasted..

Oh.. well.. nevermind then.

blaine's next pokemon is a more impressive hitmonlee

Cake however isn't afraid of anything. It will crush you no matter who you are!
After defeating Blaine Lorelei suddenly runs into the cave and jumps us again! Goddamnit, Lorelei aren't you supposed to be someone important?
"MAYBEZ.. BUT NAHT ANYMORSH!! *HICK* I LOSHT EVERYTHING AND IT'S ALL YOUR FAULTSH!! ..PROBABLY!!! *guzzles down a entire bottle of wine* AAAAAAAA!!!"

Oh god.. her first pokemon is a miltank.. a miltank so early into a journey gives one very unpleasant feelings and i'm not sure why..




Good deer. Best Friend.

OH JESUS WHAT

Shit.. somehow Lorelei has summoned the power of the GOD OF ALL DEERS! Flour's destructive deer powers are completely nullified here!
Flats give a valiant try but just cannot keep up with the sheer power of the ultimate deer weapon

Uh.. crap.. no idea what is good here

cake somehow pulls through, resisting the might F.O.E's attacks and then preceding to crush it in it's massive claw. The deer god is dead. long live Flour, the new deer god.

She also has a cat. it's neat.

It sure does, youngster joey. Lorelei chases the kid out of the cave in a fit of rage.

oh cool, a clefairy.

Huh.. clefairies can talk?
Suddenly the clefairy unzips itself, revealing..

AAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!

after that disturbing turn of events it's time to fight some normal people like.. Team rocket's.. receptionists..?

IT WAS YOU! IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG! THE GENTLE HIPPY LADY THING WAS ALL JUST AN ACT! I KNEW IT!
"Uhuhuhu.. don't worry.. you'll be covered in beautiful flowers too! WHEN YOU'RE BURIED IN THE SOIL. "

The first thing the vile hippy and secret criminal mastermind sends out is a majestic fluffybird.

OH CRAP, IT HAS A SUPER SPECIAL ATTACK.

Ha ha. your special attack sucks

she also had a roserade that Anpan immediately psybeamed

oh, she also had a vaporeon but i missed it.

Traversing deeper into the depths of mt. moon we find more of it's wildlife including electric canines and..

the magnificent.. cavefish..

Oh, and a wild cringe appeared.
Later on we encounter what appears to be Erika again but it's actually one of her former gym girls ofcourse.

she starts out with this pathetic crab that Flats deals with well enough via ramming right into like it does with everything else

OH. MY. GOD. WHAT THE- HOW DID YOU- WHY DO YOU- ASDSADFSFSD well, game over.

Or.. not as this supposed "god" just idly flings Cake around as he clamps the deity with his claw. The "god" suspiciously appears to flicker in and out of existence and a whirring mechanism appears to be visible for a second.. curious..

Holy crap! Well, after a long and hard fought battle we somehow destroyed the universe i guess. Oddly enough Cake's final blow caused Arceus to abruptly disappear and what appeared to be the scraps of a small floating robot fell to the ground where the former deity was once standing. How odd.

Another T M left carelessly lying around. Yet another thing nobody can use.

The third "Rocket flower" as i've dubbed them spins towards Rye awkwardly and then threatens them while she has her back to them. This is hilarious.

Her only mon. These two proceed to have one of the most intense staring contests of all time.

Flour's species is a hardy type, even dwelling in caves apparently.

We encounter yet another rocket flower. She was rather forgettable.
After dealing with all those scoundrels we come across a pair of fossils guarded by Blaine himself!

Blaine too, knows the power of deer. ech.. Flour, maybe it'd be better off not to evolve you later.. this thing is far less cute and fantastic.

It's tough though and almost got anpan with a mega horn!(which it apparently has right from the start!?) whew..
Afterwards he lets us have one of the two fossils.

I choose dome because screw helix! I hate twitch plays pokemon so much.[/spoiler]
