Alright, bought myself some potions. Now on to Route 3!
Eggheaded Scientist dude: “Hi! Here’s these super hi-tech new product, RUNNING SHOES >:O. They let you do something known as RUNNING. So amazing isn’t it?”
Wait what? Why couldn’t I run before I got some damn shoes? Are the shoes I’m wearing now flip flops or something? Ah whatever, a welcome upgrade since you walk slower than a paralyzed Shuckle without them.
Alright, just gotta plow through some weak ass trainers on the way to Mt. Moon, not much to say about this part...
Youngster: “HI I LIKE SHORTS :D they’re comfortable and easy to wear, and they make my crotch area all tingly with excitement.”
Alright I made that second part up, but seriously this kid has a total short fetish, I swear.
*several minutes and many trainers later*
Jeeze, why is there such a huge concentration of trainers in one tiny section of a route anyway? Some sort of newbie convention or something? Seriously, there are 8 trainers in an area Ľ the size of Viridian Forest. What gives?
*starts battle with last trainer on route, a Lass with a Jigglypuff*
Hrm, same level as my Shenron. I should be able to beat it though :D
*Tail whips and Quick Attacks*
*Stupid puffball infatuates Shenron through Cute Charm*
... Forgot about that, should’ve stuck with Thundershock...
*Stupid puffball gets a critical hit*
Really? -.- well that’s goddamn annoying.
*Charming finishes off stupid Jigglypuff*
Alright, that’s annoying. Finally reached the Pokemon Center at the end of the route. Now I can get ready for Mt. Moon. That’s going to be interesting to do with just Charming and Shenron >.<
Suspicious Bald Man: “Hey, want to buy a super-special awesome Pokémon? Only 500 Pokedollars :D”
Hrmm let me think about it... NO! GET AWAY BEFORE CHARMING ROASTS YOU, YOU SLEASY CONMAN!
Alright, into Mt. Moon we go! Time to get annoyed to kingdom come by Zubat and Geodude! Yay!
*slowly works his way through the trainers, collecting items while going back to the PokeCenter very frequently. Stupid frail Shenron*
Time to head to one of the side rooms and fight my first rocket grunt!
Let’s see how he fares. Charming wrecks his Sandshrew, Shenron 2HKO’s hit Rattata, and I’m forced to switch back to Charming for Zubat b/c of Shenron’s restriction but who gives a shit, it gets raped too.
Big bad gangsters eh? Not very impressive I say.
Anyway, onwards! There are many more items to collect and opponents to defeat!
... geeze, I won’t be needing to train these two at all at this rate once I get to Cerulean. They’re getting so damn high level already. Currently lv 18 and 16.
Bug Catcher: “You need to go through this cave to reach Cerulean City”
Yeah thanks captian obvious... wait a second... why is that? You’d think they’d have better methods to connect cities than dangerous Pokemon infested tunnels. The Pokemon world just doesn’t make sense :S
Well, I keep on proceeding through the cave... not to the main part of the second floor yet. All the trips I have to make back to the Pokemon center is really slowing me down...
And it’s really damn annoying having to stop Charming’s evolution every time he levels up >.< I can’t wait until I get Bulbous and evolve him...
*finally gets through to fossils* HELL YES good stuff. Just got to fight this Super Nerd and then get the hell out of here!
Hang on, I just realized this guy found both the fossils first, and then you battle him, and take one of the fossils. Does that make me a theif...?
Well anyway, pwned him easily. I’ll grab the Dome fossil just because. I mean, really, there’s not much difference since I can’t use either of them anyway, and I already have access to as many of both fossils as I could ever want on my Pearl version so =/. This is about the least important fossil choice I’ve ever needed to make lol.
So, now just to make a bee-line to Cerulean city! I’d say that this is Chapter complete, how ‘bout you?
END OF CHAPTER SUMMARY:
Blackouts: 1 (and NEVER AGAIN >:O)
