- [+] A//The Longest Pregame Ever
Is this Demitri Battles?
We would like to inform you of your Paypal account, and your bill, which stands at a total of $2,846.14. Are you currently able to start making payments?
"Shit, why did I answer my phone?" Umm...I'm currently unable to pay that at the moment.
Are you currently employed at the moment?
No, I'm trying though. This economy's not easy though.
I see. I regret to inform you that you have yet to make a payment for the past year. At this point, we must take drastic measures. *click*
*Before Demitri manages to collect his thoughts, knockout gas is thrown into the window and a group of hooded figures wearing gas masks barge in. Demitri tries to escape to no avail, and his unconscious body is carried into an armored truck.*
OK, I can hear you, I'm not being paranoid.
What exactly is going on? Last thing I remember was Paypal bitching about my bill.
Wait, what's coming?
TAKING MY MEMORIES?! What the-
Of course I remember my name. It's Demitri.
Dropped out of college, started working for the first time since 2012...
What do you look like, I mean?
Black, fat, average height...
Sorry, but you don't seem fat.
I have these three sketches here. Choose between them.
The guy on the right is close enough. "Oh, Arceus don't tell me..."
What about the Nuzlocke Challenge?
Oh yeah, I remember them.
Arceusdamnit, not again.
Just a little longer, and the only thing you will do is serve our lord through manual labor for each penny you owe per hour--
Get your grimy paws off of the boyfriend of the Kanto saviour!
Who said that?
Oww, my head, wait?
Am I in jail again?
Again? Nevermind that, Demitri, we don't have much time.
Oh no, I'm in the Pokemon world again.
Yeah, but don't worry, this isn't done by Rayquaza this time. Let's get out of here and I'll explain everything.
The items actually look like the items. This is not an official game. Well, no choice but to explore for now.
Gen 4 confirmed. That or another gen 3 hack.
That's right, I forgot about this. Here.
What's this, now?
So, like Zoroark's Illusion?
In a sense, except stronger.
Well, this isn't an E10 game by a longshot.
Just scrape this up. Hey look, I'm CSI.
Let's see this ability in action.
A hoodie? I mean it's nice but...
Blame the budget.
Hey, I'm supposed to be Abed. Not you.
But, hey, it works.
That's because the DNA is a sort of coat that makes you look convincing.
Well, I'm pretty new here, so I don't know where the ceremony is.
It's up the stairs at the back. The path is pretty straightforward.
- [+] A Part 2
What was that?
Compress Abridge. I developed that ability since the events of Hoenn. Basically, I can shrink or expand time proportionatially. Those 20 minutes were compressed into 20 seconds.
Anyways, we have to get out of here now! But first...
Aaah, fresh air.
Oh, yeah, I have another note for you.
Demitri, we have figured out a way to help you out of this world and back into yours. You see, you are currently trapped in the Torren region in the game Pokemon Insurgence. Unlike the games you know of, there are darker elements within your journey and new pokemon you've yet to see. You have been sent here by Kyurem under the power of the cult Perfection as a means to pay off your debt by borderline-slave labor. However, there is a way to stop them. You must take on the Torren League, save the Augur, and disband the cults. I'll reveal more when we meet. Good luck.Your benefactor
OK, well, I know this will be blind.
We believe in you, Demitri.
Holy crap, you're op!
This is where we must part ways, but I have a note and a gift for you.
And he's gone.
Time to get the starter.
Potions. Poser is more like it. I actually like this idea. Keeps you on your toes. Stay in school. So I've heard.
So which should I choose?
Ok, Raltsisaur, Giramander, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Squirtle. Raltsisaur is too OP. I mean Fairy and Psychic? It can take out the Giramander and annihilate Scragtle. Scragtle can take out Giramander, and Giramander to Raltsisaur, but Scragtle can only do neutral damage at best. If he was Steel-Dark, then it would've been more balanced.
So Delta Charmander, I choose you. I never used a Charmander before, so this will be interesting.
And a name for you--
We'll take that.
Hold up, where'd Husayn go?
And, here you go.
No, come back with my Giramander!
What am I supposed to do with this? Wait, it's hatching.
A Corphish. At least it's still normal.
Figured you'd go with Donatello. Libby, let's take him down!
more info on why the battle was easy later later...
Now that we got that out of the way, let's check your stats.
Wow. You are priming to be a Mega Crawdaunt. Potential tank. And some awesome moves to boot.
He tried to learn Harden, but I said no to that.
Let's get on with the--
Rent clock activated. You now have 1 hour before you must return your pokemon to Paypal Industries.
Hello there, everyone! I am PooPawMan the LP Man, and you may be wondering, when the hell am I updating FIRE INSURE-RANCE? Soon, ok? I got to grind for Misty.
Another thing you might be wondering is, is this a reactionlocke? I'll say, yes, yes it is.
Now, about this run. First off, this is Pokemon Insurgence, an RPG Maker game made by the same people who brought you Zeta and Omicron. Of course, this is yet another game in beta, so this run might take a while.
Now you might be wondering, 'why not do Zeta/Omicron? Those games are complete and this run might be on hiatus forever.' Maybe, but this is the only pokemon fangame with a built in Egglocke feature, a feat that would otherwise need lots of friends and an altered savefile. Thusly, may I introduce to you, my Pokemon Insurgence Rentlocke.
But isn't a rentlocke something involving Pokemon Stadium? First things first, damn kid, you ask a lot of questions, but nevertheless, this is an idea that involves time, trading of some kind, and maybe as many minigames as Mario Party. So here are the rules:
- [+] The Rentlocke
- A. First catches only
A-1. Dupes Clause is off, Shiny Clause is optional, Gift Clause is on.
B. Deaths = box fodder
C. Black out = game over
D. There is no nickname theme! (Every egg has already been pre-nicknamed.)
And now, for the fun part:
E. Once you get your starter, a timer will tick down from an hour of gameplay. After the first hour is up, the starter must be boxed, and whatever catches you made within said hour get bumped to top priority. The team rotates up for each play hour passed. (Notepad Clause Version C)
E-1. Grinding does not count in the play time, and you get up to 24 hours per gym period to grind teammates up to the gym leader's ace.
F. Every catch gets replaced by an egg chosen at random in the box per route/gift.
G. Beating a gym allows you to keep one of your previous catches that have been boxed
H. If you fail to make a catch within the hour, an emergency mon is tossed in but is only on the team until you make an official catch in the next route. Afterwards, the emergency mon must be released. You must also sacrifice half of your earnings to pay for this care package.
I. If any of your pokemon die within the hour they are used, execute PUNISHMENT MODE if the player fails the random minigame.
I-1. Upon a death of a teammate, the player must take on a challenge from a random game from the General Administration of Modern Entertainment Syndicate (GAMES), with over 70 games* listed.
I-2. Should the player lose in the minigame, PUNISHMENT MODE is activated until the next play hour, randomized between 15 sections:
#Potion: The use of the Pokemon Center to heal is banned.
#TM: Uses of TMs and HMs are banned in battle
#Oran Berry: All usages of berries (healing, farming, etc.) is banned
#Silk Scarf: Same Type Attack Boost moves are banned
#Poke Doll: Status moves are banned
#Repel: You can no longer buy items
#Poke Ball: No running away from wild battles. Repels cannot be used for this hour as well.
#Great Ball: You cannot backtrack to a Pokemon Center when a route is full of trainers or a gym
#Safari Ball: You can only have one type of balls, period. Every other ball you must sell. (Randomized by type of ball available)
#Town Map: Flying, Teleport, and Dig (/equivalent moves and items) are banned outside of battle.
#Poke Flute: You cannot use status-healing items
#Bicycle: Running and the bicycle are banned
#Old Rod: Fishing is banned
#Coin Case: You must keep a value between 500-5000 poke in your account for the whole hour (chosen by die)
#VS Seeker: Set mode
J. Oh yeah, this is also a reactionlocke, by the way. With this run, I'll do my best making as many wacky selfies as I can with my crappy webcam and maybe better lighting and effects in the future.
- [+] Added rules as of 1.1.5
- K. After beating a gym leader or an important cult leader after accessing the secret base, you are allowed one catch in the Friend Safari (the Friend Safari must be different each instance by accessing other Insurgence players' secret bases). This catch will become the one you get to keep, retconning Rule G.
L. Up to 6 mons can be shifted up queue at a time. If an hour of gameplay begets more than 6 catches, subsequent mons follow Notepad Clause until the next hour. Catches following them go the hour after.
*mostly minigames within a game
