Alright, I'm doing a Let's Play to introduce one of my favourite hacks, Pokemon Shiny Gold! I will be posting pictures and team updates, and anyone who also wants to play through is also welcome to do so!
Meeting a Gym Leader face-to-face... Meh. Done that plenty of times before
Level 9 Pidgeotto? What a hacker
Oh Yeah! I win!
Venture out onto Route 32 and meet my second teammate, Sparkle the Mareep. Would've been nice if she came before Falkner.
Hmm... It looks tasty, but I don't want to support Pokemon cruelty
My team at the end of the chapter, before Union Cave. Mareep is unfortunately only available after you beat Falkner, so she had to do a lot of grinding to catch up with Volc. Falkner was taken down in three hits of Ember, while Volc only took about 10hp damage throughout the battle. So my team stands at level 18 Quilava, level 13 Mareep and Level 0 Egg.
On a side note, if anyone is playing through Shiny Gold, or any hack game, feel free to post photos and team updates here!
Update 3! Beating Bugsy! Now is probably a good time to tell you that the creator of this game decided to add Hoenn Pokemon on every route. They are very rare, and I was fortunate enough to find one...
A wild Mudkip appeared!
I name him Jorge
Woohoo! I've got a Flaafy!
Awww, how cute
Because he came from an egg
Another day, another evolution
Need proof I have two badges?
My team at the end
So, this chapter I got two new teammates. I lucked out and found a Mudkip in Union Cave, and while I was preparing for the battle against Bugsy my egg hatched. Eggy got all kinds of things with Metronome; He got Kinesis twice in one battle, but in other battles he got Hydro Cannon and Frenzy Plant, and almost solo'd Bugsy with Rollout; Scyther's Quick Attack killed him:(. Anyway, next chapter I intend to have beaten Whitney.
