Let's Play Pokemon Emerald!
It's been quite a while since I posted anything in the Orange Islands subforum, and it has been really bothering me. I did a Nuzlocke Challenge but was much too lazy to post all the different things I did, and I did a Scramble Challange (silly scramblers like the mispelling) but people didn't even give me 6 pokemon. So after talking with Jellicent on IRC (if you're not part of #orangeislands, you really should be), I decided I would do a Let's Play! of Pokemon Emerald.
If you are unfamiliar with a Let's Play! , it's fairly simple. Someone plays through the game and keeps everyone updated on their progress and their interesting stories about the game. A good Let's Play! was made by kd24 here: Let's Play Manly Pink!. It will also be fairly similar to the Let's Play! competition thread found here. A lot of them recorded on video and commentated it as they played, but since I lack recording software and/or an interesting real-time personality, I'll stick to words and screenshots.
Without further ado, Let's Play Pokemon Emerald!
What a lovely name. :)
So I set my name as DEINO, since that is an easy shortening for Deinosaur. I'm dropped off at my house, finally. Sitting in the back of that moving truck was torture. And why wasn't my mom in there with me? What if I got a concussion from the falling boxes? No matter, it all turned out okay. I proceed to set my clock to 12:00 noon because I always do that in Emerald, and proceed to steal the Potion that this PC has left me. Now off to meet May, what a pleasure.
and this is craaaaazy.
Alright, enough of that. Now we're headed off to find out what else I can do in this town. Hmm, up north we have a Zigzagoon attack, hopefully Professor Birch makes it out in one piece. Maybe I should help him, he doesn't look like he moves well.
So it begins....
I obtain my Mudkip and quickly dispose of the scum that is this Zigzagoon. Wrong place, wrong time. Now we get to go back to Professor Birch's lab. I hope he has food, its 2 am and I'm starving. Another break of exciting dialogue later, and I have a Mudkip named Jellicent (he's the one who let me do this in the first place. Also it's nature is Naughty, and I hope Jelli appreciates that). After hours and hours of painstaking work and care, my Naughty Jellicent finally reaches Level 10, and learns Water Gun.
So strong. :')
So after this training session, we are ready to face May. She only has with her a Level 5 Treecko, so she's no problem. Lots of walking, I must admit. I think my character is wearing like high heel glass slippers, because he can't run at all. Another exciting break of dialogue, and we are on our way. I receive the running shoes from mommy so I can now move somewhat fast. We hustle into the tall grass to find us a new teammate, and we run into a Level 4 Zigzagoon.
I named this poor creature PREM because I'll mostly be using him for Pickup and as an HM whore. He'll be cool during the early stages of the game, though. Now we work our way through the trainers on the next route, it's no surprise that prem starts critical hitting every poochyena he sees. He's always had to rely on luck. Soon enough he gets Headbutt, which just flinches everything to death. Even in-game you're a lucky fighter.
Oh we made it, not sure how prem hasn't died yet.
Off we go, learning how to catch a Pokemon from Wally, who chokes and misses one of his Tackles, so the catch is completely unrealistic. Either way, we move on past Scott (I'll show you someday, I'm strong) to Petalburg Woods. The trainers are no trouble with prem's haxy status, and the Team Aqua grunt falls to the same crits and flinches. When we finally make it to Rustboro City, PREM and JELLICENT have both reached Level 11. Time to challenge Roxanne and get my first badge. :D
The official team picture before challenging the Gym Leader.
Jellicent of course has no trouble destroying these rocks, even without luck. Jellicent has reached level 14, getting close to evolving, and poor prem still sucks and is stuck at Level 11. I'll get you some playing time soon bud, it's a shame to see you on the bench without first earning your spot there. It won't be long, though.
So that concludes segment 1 of Let's Play Pokemon Emerald! Hope you all enjoyed what I have so far, stay tuned for more! Also feel free to post any comments or suggestions you have for me so I can keep making this thread better and better!
